THE UPPEK DBS MOINES: ALGONA. IOWA, WEDNESDAY. DEOEMBEB 8. 1897 IN THE DISTRICT COURT. One of the Lund Mortgage Cases Decided —Eight Others Will Consume a. Week's Time at Least. Judge Thomas decided one of the most interesting Ludd cases yesterday afternoon. It was tried eight months ago and involves the old Hegerly farm north of town, now owned by the Switz- ers. Lund at one time owned it, and at that time got $1,500 of C. S. Black man to loan. His first step was to make a bogus deed to James and Lucy Henderson, and from them a bogus mortgage to Blackman for the f 1,500. Then he made a bogus deed to Mr. Young, who gave a. mortgage back that the Elkader state bank bought. Kate Switzer got the land after that from Young, the Blackman mortgage having been released by forgery. The question came upon a demurrer to Blackman a petition to foreclose his mortgage. Judge Thomas held that Blackman'e mortgage was good, and that the Elkader bank had notice, the theory being that Lund's fictitious use of the names of James Henderson and wife did not relieve his land of tbe debt. Clarke & Cohenour represent the Switzers, and •will answer, setting up that James Henderson is not a fictitious party, and that a mortgage signed with his name is not using a fictitious name, but is clearly a forgery which invalidates the instrument. Capt. Soper represents Blackman, and Sullivan & McMahon the Elkader bank. The Other Luiid Cases. Yesterday afternoon the trial of the eight Lund cases set for this term began. It will occupy the week. Senator Healey and A. N. Botsford are here from Fort Dodge. A. C. Dudley of Des Moines is expected today. They are with Sullivan & McMahon. Clarke & Cohenour represent Russ, the plaintiff •••• in all of them. As soon as these cases are heard Judge Thomas will go to Spencer to finish the term there Judge Quarton has begun. The first case set for trial after these are out of the way is Bast vs. Bast. It is a case where it is claimed that one party purloined a mortgage. He claims it belongs to him and wants it foreclosed. Senator Carney was in court yesterday. He is Marshal town's able member of the present state senate. Court Matters In General. sent to the penitentiary at the last term and Sheriff Samson caught Bloempot in New York City. P Beck has sued Sarah Pierce for $3,000 for slander. It is alleged that Sarah has said very bad and damaging things. She owns an eighty and should have been careful. Sheriff Samson came in Monday with John Quincy Adams and Mrs. Kitty Bergman of Germania, caught out on the border between South Dakota and Minnesota, and charged with adultery by Mrs. Bergman's husband. They lived in a town where they could cross the state line on the main street and Sheriff Samson hod to get papers from the governors of both states. Ernest Blinkman, who works about town, asks for a divorce from his wife. There are six divorce cases. Jas. Whalen is before the prand jury charged with rape over north of Whltte- more. If indicted, he will bo tried at once. Dr H. D. Spencer of Sexton asks for a permit to dispense liquors. It is understood that Nathan Pine will present are- monstrance. E. R. Chute wants §3,610 of John M. Stewart, who lives near Germania. Chute sold an implement business to the boys and Stewart signed the notes. Among the cases for trial is that note case in which D. D. Dodge gave the Mericle boys some notes by mistake, he claims, and they sold to Dansou & Butler. • B. W. Haggard has sued the Travellers' insurance company for §500, tbe accident insurance they refuse to pay on his policy, for the injury suffered at Sexton. John Conners lias sued the Northwestern railway for §1,900 damages by fire that burned in the big slough west of LuVerne. Also A. F. Curran has sued for 8500. Judge Quarton opened court Monday for preliminary matters. He will come back as soon as the Russ-Lund cases are done and finish the term. He is now at Spencer. It is said that Judge Carr cannot be here and that the Bronson suit against the Milwaukee and the Ramsey suit against Hoxie & Brunson will neither of them bo tried. It is likely that H. Bloompot, who is charged with aiding Cirksena in that Bancroft forgery, will be tried. Civltsena was BEMI-LOOAL NEWS NOTES. H. G. Burt, former superintendent of this division of the Northwestern railway and the man after whom Burt was named, is likely to become president of the Union Pacific railway. -5- -*--*B. F. McCorraack, brother of Algona's former doctor, went to hear the Ottumwas sing at Sanborn. He has no music in his soul: "The audience seemed to enjoy their singing, but so far as we are concerned individually another such a singing outfit would make us an anarchist They ought to be tied up by the thumbs, every one of them, and have forty lashes each, save five upon their bare backs. This only is our opinion of it We presume there were some people comfortable in the hall, but this is a presumption only for we have not met that one yet. So far as heard from no one was frostbitten, though many thought they were. When the Ottumwas come to Sanborn again we'll take the cramp colic and enjoy ourselves at home." -j- -s- -4- The Emmetsburg Democrat takes the squib Editor Furry published in the Alden Times about Algona and Emmetsburg so seriously to heart that it leaves a suspicion that there might be something in it. The Democrat closes a long editorial roast of Algona with a challenge: It is true Emmetsburg has no electric light plant; neither has Algona. But we have facts and figures to prove that Emmetsburg has finer churches, better schools, more civic organizations, grander residences, more substantial business houses, more costly public buildings, cleaner streets, firmer and more expensive sidewalks, more money, fewer intemperate business and professional men, more prudent county Officers, less criminals, and less idiots than Algona, Estherville, Spencer, Sheldon, or Iowa Falls. If you don't believe this just sharpen your quills and invite us to go into details. As for Alden, it wouldn't make a football for Graettinger. Emmetsburg is prepared to defend itself against all de- framers and especially those who reside in Algona or in Hardin county. THINGS TO EEMEKBEB. Hogs are 82.90 to S3. TheK.
