CITY OFFICIALS TO BE PAID
Decision by the Supreme Oonrt Will Allow
Them to Draw Their Salaries.
EVERYBODY HAPPY ABOUT THE CITY HALL
of the DUtrlct Court In < lie
of IMilltlim Annlimt Heed
In nrvernrfl by the Stnte'a
The reversal by the supreme court of the
ruling of Judge Smith of the district court
In the case of Phillips against Herd , city
treasurer , Is in effect to place the city upon
a cash basis. The finding of the supreme
court Is that the warranls Issued by the city
for current expenses must bo paid out of the
current revenues and that the current
revenues cannot be diverted for the pur
pose of paying off the city's outstand'ng '
obligations. In short the decision Is th.it
the warrants issued for current expenses
take precedence over the outstanding war
The suit brought by N. C. Phillips against
W. II. Reed , city treasurer , was a friendly
one to determine the status of old and new
warrants under the new code. The new
code , which went into effect October of last
year , provides that warrants drawn for the
payment of current expenses of the city gov
ernment shall bo paid out of the current
revenues. In order to enable cities to dispose
of their outstanding obligations power was
given them to fund them or Issue bonds for
tholr payment , although this the law does
not make compulsory. The purpose of the
now law was , H Is generally conceded , to
place cities on a cash basis and prevent the
expenditures In any year exceeding the
Treasurer Reed on assuming office , owing
to the diversity of opinion existing as to
Ihe Interpretation of the now law , refused to
pay either the new or old warrants until Ihe
question was decided by the courts. Ac
cordingly N. C. Phillips , city clerk , applied
to the district court for a writ of mandamus
to compel the city treasurer to pay a small
warrant Issued to him In April for current
expenses. The petition set forth that It was
the intent of the new law that warrants
drawn for current expenses were prior
claims to outstanding warrants of previous
The city demurred on two grounds. First ,
that It was not the Intention of the new law
to make current warrants prior claims , and ,
second , that if such was the Intention then
the law was unconstitutional , as it would
Interfere with the vested rights of the
holders of the old warrants to have their
claims raid In order of their presentation
and registration , which had been the rule
In force heretofore.
Judge Smith of the district court , In his
decision , held that there was no doubt as to
the intention of the law to give current
warrants a prior claim to old warrants on
current revenues , but sustained the de
murrer of the city on 'the grounds that such
a law was unconstitutional.
An appeal was at once taken to the supreme
premo court , where the ruling of Judge
Smith has been reversed in an opinion
written by Judge Waterman , Judges Robin
son and Granger dissenting. The questjon
as to what rights and remedies the holders
of the old warrants food was not up
before the court , but In the opinion
the court says if these claims are valid
they can doubtless bo put in Judgment and
be collected by proper process.
The decision of the supreme court was re
ceived with a considerable amount of satis
faction by the city officials nnd employes , as
their warrants for salaries since April 1 can
now bo paid by City Treasurer Reed. The
salaries for the last two months have been
paid out of the police fund In accordance
with a resolution passed by the city coun
cil. Under the ruling of the supreme court
this action of the city council In ordering
salary warrants paid from the police fund
has turned out nil right , but as a prominent
attorney said yesterday It might have placcC
the city council In a dilemma had the de
cision of the supreme court been in favor of
the old warrants.
City Attorney Wadsworth telegraphed
yesterday for a certified copy of the opinion
of the supreme court and until that arrives
no action will be taken by City Treasurer
Reed looking to the payment of the warrants
Issued for this year's current expenses. Of
warrants issued for current expenses some
$24,000 Is outstanding , but as there Is over
$40,000 at present in the general fund they
can bo paid off ns soon as the certified copy
of the supreme court opinion reaches here.
That the city will take some action as
soon as circumstances permit to provide
some means for paying off the old warrants
Is not doubted , but it Is doubtful If any such
stops will bo taken until a decision is had
In the suit brought by J. J. Shea against
the city , In which be attacks the validity of
the outstanding Indebtedness. This suit was
heard last July before Judge Towncr and his
decision Is anxiously looked for by the city
oftlclals and other Interested parties.
Chairman Sayles of the finance committee
of the city council when seen yesterday
stated that as soon as n decision was had In
the Shea case , providing It was favorable to
the city , steps would undoubtedly bo taken
to provide means of paying off the old war
rants. He was In favor of funding the out
standing Indebtedness rather than have the
warrants placed In Judgment against the
city and he was of the opinion that the
former would be the means that the city
would adopt to pay off these old warrants.
City Attorney Wadsworth , although the
ruling of the supreme court was contrary to
bis Interpretation of the new law , was much
pleased with the decision , as it placed the
city on a cash basis and Insured It taking
care of Its current expenses.
Mayor Jennings was also much pleased
over the decision.
The amount of outstanding warrants which
will have to bo funded Is something over

The answer of Margaret E. Mead to the
petition of intervention of J. E. Clarey in
one of the most peculiar cases ever In the
Iowa courts was filed In the district court
today In which she denies each and every
allegation except the fact that she admits
that C. K. Mead , as assignor of plaintiff ,
delivered to the Saturday Review Publish
ing company $1,000 under an oral contract
and under the following circumstances. At
the time there was pending before the city
council a gas ordinance and a. valuable
franchise was about to be granted or ex
tended by the city to the Capital City Gas
Light company to which numerous citizens
were opposed. The Saturday Review , a
paper published In the city of Des Moincs
with a large circulation and considerable In
fluence , so the answer claims , was opposing
this ordinance and a contract was entered
Into between C. K. Mead and Frank
Perry , as manager , and J. E. Clarey
as editor of the above named paper
that it would cease Its opposi
tion to the ordinance upon receipt of $1,000.
Plaintiff avers that this contract was null
, and void because against public policy. The
money In question finally passed Into the
hands of J. G. Jordan until the matter could
bo adjudicated by the courts. Plaintiff ad
mits the delivery of this $1,000. During the
fight the Saturday Review opposed the gas
company and agreed with Mead to cease
their opposition In consideration of the
$1,000 and at the time of entering Into this
contract they Intended to make the matter
public ; that they went before the city coun
cil and exposed the whole matter and their
contract with C. K. Mead was void because
the money was obtained by the fraud of said
I ubllshlng company. The plaintiff therefore

No Danger In Them If Warner's Safe

A chill air and a lowering sky In the morning , a sudden

temperate zone. This Is the weather that threatens not only th
avowed Invalids , but many who fancy themselves stronger than
they arc. It strikes thorn In the back. It stops the free action
of the kidneys.
Then come * feelings of cold , headache , nervousness , nnd ,
worst of all , Ihe grinding , culling rheiimallsm which may last for

diseases begin In the kidneys , and In the fickle autumn wealhcr lh

thcso uncertain days. Strengthen your klducyw with Warner's Saf
P. W. Lewis , of Clyde , Ohio , writes :
"I had been confined to the house for months with sciatic rheu
matism , not -ible to get Into of out of bed without help , and
had despaired of ever being able to walk again. A friend advised
mo to take Warner's Safe Cure. 1 told him I had been lame
so long I had no hopes of getting well. Hut n drowning man will
grasp at n straw , so I sent for Iwo bottles , and when I hail
taken them I walked to my barn , with the aid of two canes.
"I got more Warner's Safe Cure , and It served the scl.uio
rheumatism as Admiral Dewey served the Spanish ships at Ma
nilla. It also knocked my old enemy , kidney trouble. I was soon
able to dispense with my canes and to go about my business. "
The connection between the kidneys and the rhuutnatUm was
probably obvious to Mr. Lewis , but It may not bo to everybody
who reads the story of his rwo\ery. The diseased kidneys , slug
gish and Incompetent , Instead of taking dead tissue from the
blood and hurrying it out of the body , acted ns n dam. In fiuch
a case , with every beat of the heart , the blood Is laden-with u
substance as truly poisonous as arsenle. or strychnine. But It is
a lingering poison , except when the rheumatism touches the heart ; Ihen it kills like lightening.
There Is no hope for the rheumatic unless he attend to his kidneys and , by making them sound nnd strong , rid his system
of the enemy. There Is more than hope ; t hero Is certainly of renewed health in Warner's Safe Cure. Can any fair minded man ,
or woman , doubt this , after reading Mr. Lewis' letlcr ?
tance from Sioux City al > out twenty-five
miles. It is said further that a syndicate of
eastern capitalists Is behind the scheme. The
men employed nnd others who seem to
understand the matter refuse to talk.
