Two resolutions seeking to protect the financial interests of the city of Moorhead through possible losses in tax sales which are made possible through a bill passed by the last Minnesota legislature, were adopted by the city council at a special session «' Tuesday night. Both measures will be submitted immediately to A. O. Houglum, county auditor, in compliance with the new statute's provisions. Notice that the city will expect county officials to collect the full amount of penalty and interest due on special improvement taxes was given in one resolution. The second said that Moorhead will allow no discount on real estate sold to pay taxes. Had no resolutions been adopted, it would have been possible for land owners to purchase their own property bcick at one-fifth the amount of taxes due prior to 1925, on land sold for taxes in 1918. It would also have been possible to pay taxes due prior to 1918, without the penalty or interest. City officials pointed out that in Moorhead the law would affect a considerable amount of taxes for special paving and sewer and water improvements at a great loss to the city. An installment of $150 on Holes park, purchased by the city a number of years ago at a cost of $17,000, was among the bills allowed by the council. According to R. G.

The application, filed before Judge John Walsh, the same judge who sentenced Capone and Frank Cline, his bodyguard, to year in prison after they had pleaded guilty to carrying concealed deadly weapons, is aimed at the revocation of the year's sentence. One technical point of law is the medium through which the Chicago gangster hopes to gain his liberty. The point is a rare one, never before evoked for a misdemeanor case, it was said, in Pennsylvania. The action, in legal terms, rests on the contention that errors in fact existing at Capone's arraignment before Judge Walsh hav.e made him eligible to apply for a writ of coram nobis, on which can be argued a reversal of sentence. The writ is heard only in the court in which sentence was originally passed and empowers the court to reverse its decision. In every day language, Capone's complaint is that he was "railroaded" to jail by Philadelphia police, who did not give him a "break." It was rumored that ultimately the coram nobis' proceedings would lead Capone to try for a new trial. despite the protest of a spokesman Song 0 f t h e Marching Men__Protheroe I £__it.. —^ tt f V. o + f Vi a mtv i a /-it,«;— ' for the cab company that the city is without authority to refuse any company a license, as long as legal requirements are complied with.

Congressman Knoxville, Tenn., June 26 (UP)— The status of the Negro race in America was discussed here for an hour by Oscar De Priest, Negro Congressman of Chicago, whose wife's presence at the White House reception caused a national controversy. "Who on earth asked for social equality? Who on earth wants it?" De Priest demanded in an address to 1,500 members of his own race, to whom he explained "the constitution guarantees every citizen political equality; you are fools if you take anything else." The Chicago congressman charged that the "hue and cry about social equality is pure hypocrisy on the part of the white man, for since 1870 the mullatoes in America have increased 200 per cent.
