Wednesday , July 4.
Council of war at Taku decided to
postpone relief of Pekin until they have
50,000 men. This means a delay of
several weeks , as Russia refuses to
permit Japan to supply 30,000 men
needed. German and English officials
declare Russia will thus be responsi
ble for slaughter of foreigners. Brit
ish diplomats predict a war of Eng
land and Japan against Russia , in
which Germany and France may be
come involved. Three Chinese serv
ants escaped from Pekin report all for

Declares the JLa.\r Is Void.
Judge Bishop in the Polk County
District Court at Des Moines , la. , de
cided that the building and loan asso
ciation law passed by the twenty-
eighth general assembly is unconsti
tutional and void in those features affecting - -
fecting existing contracts. This ap
plies to the interest which was legal
ized so far as it exceeds 8 per cent by
the twenty-seventh general assembly.
Judge Bishop holds that the legisla
ture cannot play fast and loose with
the corporations of this character ,
whose contracts were made mutually.
He believes that the law cannot in anyway 'V
way affect existing contracts in build
ing and loan business and that the
companies can recover the face of the
contracts. The case was that of the
Iowa Central Building and Loan Asso
ciation vs. Wilson. It directly raised
the question of constitutionality.

peake and Ohio railfoad company. She
had been living with her husband's
relatives in Norwood. It is said that
she quarreled with them , went to the
Lombardy flats on West Fourth street ,
where she had a friend , and spent the
night. She killed her babe and turn
ing on the gas , left her 3-year-old
boy to die , but he was rescued.
