Sioux county ia evidenced by two bills
on lile in the oifice of county clerk.
Signed by Mr. Hull. One is for $125,
first quarters salary us county attorney,
and the other is office rent for the
months of February, March and April,
amounting 10 $7.f0; three loads of wood
amounting to $8, 2o, and to cutting the
wood $8. Thus the county is asked to
pay $U1.7!5 to Mr, Hull, before it is de
cirisd by the supreme court that be has
any right to the ollice. Should, that lie

The special school meeting on last
Thursday afternoon was not largely at
tended. The cull staled that the meet
ing was to accept or reject a proposition
from the village board to furnish a per
tnaueut water supply on the school
grounds and thus settle the debt of the
village to the school district. ' W. K.
Smith, chairman of the village hoard,
was the only member of that Istdy pres
ent, and he bad 110 projiosition to submit.
Not one of the petitioners for the meet
ing were present. A motion was made
to instruct the school board 10 cancel the
indebtedness of tiro village to the school
district, and the motion was defi-ated by
the unanimous vote of those present. A
resolution endorsing Asa, Davis' iu:tioti in
declining to give up the school wheu re
quested to do so by some of the resi
dents of the district vas passed and the
meeting adjourned. Thus the mailer
rests just where it has been all the time.
It is simply putting it oil' and a settle
ment will have to ba made sometime.
