SOMETHING FOR NOTHING
Kansas City, Mo., Jan. 26 - John T. Maddox, county clerk of Dallas County, Mo., appeared before Judge A. S. Van Falkenburgh in the federal court here today to answer a suit against Dallas County to compel it to levy a tax of $70,500 to apply on railroad bonds of $1,800,000, issued in 1868 and now held by eastern capitalists. The road for which the bonds were issued was never built.
Since the suit was filed in December, 1911 by David Yost of Philadelphia and others, the Dallas county officials have avoided service. Papers were served on the county clerk by a Kansas City girl, a deputy United States Marshal who trapped Maddox posing as a book agent.
Recent attempts upon the part of the deputy marshal to serve a subpoena upon the assessor of Dallas county have failed.
