Action in Circuit Court
by Which New Town Existence is Questioned
A court action started in Circuit court will create intense interest throughout Lake county because a move has been launched to test the legality of the recent special election whereby the new township of Lake Villa was created. Since that time officers have been elected and are now serving as town officers in the new town.
The action was in the nature of an information in a quo warranto proceeding to see whether the town officers hold office legally and was directed against the following town officials:
    Supervisor--John Stratton.
    Clerk--C. W. Talbott.
    Assessor--Eugene Wilton.
    Collector--Percy Dibble.
    Commissioners of Highways--F. M. Hamlin, J. J. Barnstable,
                               George McCredie.
    Constable--Herman Witt.
    Justices--L. B. Congdon, M. S. Miller.
The complainants are shown to be prominent men of the western part of the county, John Strang, John A. Thain, Joseph Hucker and George B. Cable.
The summons was issued and is returnable Monday, May 12, at which time the case will be heard. Messrs. Elam Clark and John Pope appeared for the complainants. It is brought in the name of the state, but State's Attorney Dady has nothing to do with the action.
Under the action the town officers must appear in court and show by what right they are holding offices they are now filling and in this way, the legality of the new town will be decided.
