B. Thill, Whittemore, faced a $50 fine and an Indeterminate Jail sentence on a contempt of court charge yesterday morning for refusal to testify In a hearing 'before Judge James De Land, Storm Lake, who opened court Monday morning Mr. Thill, In response to 'a question from Judge De Land, after refusal to reply to questions by Attorney. -L. E. Llnnan, said the. facts which it'" was sought to ''elicit were for him to know arid the'court to find out. The court, indignant at this statement, Immediately ordered Sheriff Hovey to take the witness to Jail under sentence of $50 fine and hold him there'till he was ready to testify. Finally Gives Testimony. Mr. Thill accompanied Sheriff Hovey to the Jail, where the latter explained what a mess he had got himself. Into and the probable consequences. Mr. Thill then signified his willingness to talk, and ten minutes after he was taken away he was returned to court and gave his testimony. The fine was then" remitted. Mr. Thill had evidently nol .understood that a .witness called In court must answer proper questions asked by the Judge or attorneys. '-.• ; The hearing arose from a case In Emmet county wherein Peter Orl ger, Whittemore, asked judgment on a lease against Mike C.- Thill, also -ofyrthe' y^YhHtemore •-; . jiejghbprhood Mr. Origer claimed a landlord's lien. The suit was filed Friday, and notice was served on the defendant. Sheriffs levy Foiled. . .Last Thursday night a group ol neighbors went to the .farm occupied by the tenant and removed everything that could be attached under the landlord's writ except some corn. Thus when the sheriff went out to serve the attachment he was. unable to tind property on which to levy. The Thills refused to aid him In a search. Yesterday everybody concerned was haled into court before Judge DeLand, and .after hearing, the testimony Judge 'DeLand issued an injunction restraining the tenant and his wife from obstructing the sheriff- In locating and Identifying the property. Witnesses called Included Earl Shepherd, Frank Foley, George and William Fandel, John Origer, Mike Harvey, and Herbert Mergens, Harvey Hlgley, William Mueller, NJck Reding, Peter Mueller, John Thill, and Ralph Shumacher. De Land Upholds' Sheriff, Most of these men had taken part In the wholesale removal of property from the Thill premises, but after the example Judge DeLand gave them by way of prompt action when H. B, Thill refused to testify they all gave what Information they had quickly and 'apparently truthfully. The case had aroused considerable attention in Whittemore territory, and the courtroom'was half full, JudK9.Det.and, in a short talk, cautioned the witnesses and others in the courtroom that they must not Interfere with the sheriff and that it was;their duty as good citizens ,to aid: in identifying and seeing, that all 'property taken from t Thill farm be returned. NEW STATE ROAD TO WESLEY TO RUN ALON6 COUNTY LINE * Kossuth and Hancock ( counties are to have a brand new state road north and south along the boundary line from Humboldt county to Wesley. It is scheduled for grading at least this year, and for graveling as soon as possible thereafter. The road will be an extension of Primary No, 60, which now runs north as far as Renwick. From Renwick it runs south through Gpldfleld, Eagle 'Grove, and Webster City to a point near Boone, whence it runs south- eas.t to Des Moines. It is believed that the road will be placed on the paving program In a few years. H, J, BODE TO SPEAK OVER WMT AT 8 O'CLOCK TONI6HT Kossuth radio owners who tune In tonight at 8 o'clock on WMT.

In Iowa and other states there has of late years been talk of county consolidation as a means of reducing taxation. The argument Is that the automobile and good roads have In effect so shortened distances, that consolidation could be effected without much public inconvenience. Yesterday morning's Des Moines Register ran a news story in this connection which was of statewide Interest and of particular interest in Kossuth, Emmet, Palo Alto, Winnebago, and Hancock counties. Costs of government in Kossuth were compared with combined costs In Emmet and Palo Alto on the weat and' Winnebago and Hancock on the east. Kossuth's area is exactly equal ,to that of the bordering counties on each side and ; the population in Kossuth is only slightly less. The Register's story dealt with figures given out by Gels Botsford Des Moines realtor, chairman of taxation committees of tioth the Des Moines Real Estate,Board and the Iowa association of such boards. 'Mr. Boteford was quoted as follows: County Costs Are Cited. "Kossuth with a population of 25,542 had governmental costs of ; $61,764.95 in 1930, while Palo Alto and Emmet counties with a total population of 28,254, had a combined governmental cost of $96,419.49, and Hancock and' Winnebago with a combined population of 27;945, showed a total governmental cost of $92,433)22 for the same year. "In other words, county government In Palo Alto and Emmet counties cost ,$34,654.54 more than that of, Kossuth county which has only a-slightly smaller-'population. "Similarly, county governmental expenses in Hancock and Winnebago counties were $30,668.27 larger than those of Koseuth, although their combined population was just 2,500 greater. "These figures are from the reports of the state municipal accounting department,* and Include costs of the board of supervlsore, sheriff, auditor, clerk of courts, county , attorney, recorder, superintendent of schools, county engineer, treasurer and the expense of the county home. Kossuth Per Capita Tax low. "They show that the per capita cost of government in Kossuth county in 1930 was $2.42 as compared with $3.16 for Palo Alto, $3.72 for Emmet, $3.17 for Winnebago, and $3.44 for Hancock. "If anybody Is Interested In seeing what county consolidation could do in the way of providing money for bond interest or debt funding, it might be mentioned that the, saving as .between 'expenses of government in Kpsjmth in 1930 and In Pajp 'Alto and Emmet combined was the equivalent of 4% per cent on $811,823. "The saving as between Kossuth and Hancock and Winnebago was equal to 4% per cent on $681,517." The Register's leading editorial the same day was devoted to the Botsford showing. The following quotation is from the editorial: Kossuth Tax Dollar Biggest. "Let Kossuth's negihbors understand that -for every dollar per capita Kossuth pays for'county government, Palo Alto pays $1.30, Emmet pays $1.54, Winnebago payp $1.81;'arid-Hancock pays-$1.42, Does anyone :really believe that the county government • in these counties Is so much better than Kossuth's that It Is worth one-thlrd to one-half more In taxes? That Is, does any'one believe It except the local politicians that benefit from 'the outworn sys^ tern?" County consolidation was first suggested in Iowa by Wallaces' Farmer three or four years ago. The discussion is at present considered academic, for It is realized that consolidation could not be affected without great and perhaps Insurmountable opposition in the counties concerned, and especially on the part of county seats which might be abolished. Relocation of county seats at central,, points would certainly be advocated, Involving not only great expense for new courthouses, and new supplies which would negative savings for years, butr also abandonment* of present courthouses which could not easily converted to new ones. AL60NIAN IS SPEAKER IN INDIANA AND MISSOURI Dr. and Mrs. J. O, F. Price • returned ^jrlday from Indianapolis, Ind-, where ^hey had epent a week, attending an Indiana state veterin- ary'meeting.

Dancers dressed In hard times costumes will pay only 76 cents, while all who go dressed up in the usual or "dude" clothing will have to pay $1.25.- There will be prices for the best costumes, one for a man, the other for a > woman. Funds realized from the dance will be used to pay the Algona airport rental for another year. No air show was given here last year to raise the required funds, but the Legion boys are hopeful that the dance will provide the money. The post feels that it is extra-important to keep up the airport. An air mall route from Chicago via Mason City to Sioux Falls is contemplated this year. If Algona continues to maintain an airport there will be a possibility that the government will lend a hand at keep- Ing .it up as an emergency landing field. CANDIDATES OUT FOR AUDITOR AND SHERIFF'S OFFICES Harley C. Bartlett, deputy auditor, son of Mr. and Mrs. Edw. Bartlett, Algona, has announced his candidacy for the republican nomination for county auditor, and Deputy Sheriff E. L. Harris has announced for sheriff. Mr. Bartlett, who has lived all his life in Kossuth, first in the Titonka neighborhood and for the last 23 years at Algona, is a sngle man residing with his parents. He is generally regarded as highly competent for the office. Mr. Harris, who is the son of John Harris, Sexton, has lived in Kossuth more than 20 years, having been reared in the Wesley neighborhood. He has been an efficient deputy .and like Mr Bartlett is regarded as- competent for the office he seeks. No other announcements for either office have been made. •It Is reported that Constable ,W.'H Steward, of Burt, will also 'be a candidate for sheriff. A. H. Bonnstetter, West Bend has filed for renomlnation as representative. .He is serving his first term. ^ Lively supervisor fights are in prospect in the First and Third districts, now represented by Supervisors Balgeman and Funnemark respectively. In the First district Balgeman has announced for a fifth term. Hugh Raney, of Irvington township, is also announced, and it is rumored that John Fraser will be a third candidate. All seek the republican nomination. Raney planned to enter the race when Balgeman was a candidate for a fourth term, but withdrew in favor of Fraser, who was defeated. Supervisor Funnemark has not stated whether he will seek renom- lnation. It was announced last week ,that John A, Sleper, of German township, would be a candidate, and last "week's Titonka Topic reported that' Ubbe Winter, also of German, would be a candidate.

The political situation as regard* the republican nomination for th» lieutenant governorship was cleared: early in the week with the announcement that the forces behind Governor Turner and tax reform .in Iowa had united on Sen. C. F. of Cedar Rapids. . This action was taken following- some weeks of negotiations between, friends of Leonard Simmer Ottumwa. Senator Clark, and Sen. Geo. WV Patterson. Simmer had announced his candidacy and Patterson wa» strongly supported .in northwest Iowa. Conferences of Patterson supporters received assurances <* support from prominent nmen throughout the state. "' ' | Committee Picks Clark. The three-prospective candidates recently conferred at Des Moines; and it was agreed that the Turner- forces .should, unite behind a singla candidate. It was further agreed to leave the'choice of the candidate up- to a committee of two men from each congressional district picked by the candidates. This committee met at Des Moines last week-end and chose Senator Clark.
