SUBJECT TO DAMAGES.
Presiding Judge Arthur L.
Frazer yesterday decided that if
the owner of a piece of property
conspired with a liuure buyer
of the land in order to defraud
maliciously a regularly appoint
ed agent from a commission in
selling the land and the pur
chaser received a benefit from
that action, the agent has a
cause to sue th purchaser along
with the former owner of the
property. This ruling was
made in the overruling of a de
murrer to the amended coin
plaint in the case of Henry M.
"Wagner against S. L. Goldsmith
and C. W. nerrall. The plain
tiff sued for $500.

great resources, do you owe

LOOKING FOR A MILL SITE
Mr. Morris of Cline Falls was
in town last Monday represent
ing Prickett & Morton of Pay
ette, Idaho. These gentlemen
purchased a mill site at Cline
Falls and had prepared to erect
a flour mill there. They shipp
ed pait of their machinery to
Cline Falls and were watting to
receive the balance of it when
they learned that the water
power they were planning to
utilize was in bug shape tha
they would be denied the use o
it for a time at least.
When they learned that their
title to the water power at CJine
Falls was questionable, Messrs
Prickelt& Morton sent Mr. Mor
ris to Latdlavv to see if a good
mill cite could be secured here
lie Jooiced at' several places
where good water power was
available and was more favora
bly impressed with the power
and millsite owned by B. F.
Nichols than any other in this
vicinity. Mr. Nichols offered to
make them a liberal concession
if they buw fit to locate here.
