In the city warrant case of Phillips against
need , City Treasurer , on the grounds thai
the court erred when It decided that the ton-
stltutlonatlty of the law was not Involve. :
In the case. He will urge that the coun
apparently , In handing down Its opinion
overlooked the fact that the old law o !
1&S8 , which had been adopted Into the codi
of 1897 , was not applicable to Council Blurts
this city not having been organized as t
city ot the first class until 18S2.
general s em-
In 1888 the twenty-second
bly passed two laws , one of which was appli
cable to all the cities of the state , whlcl
provided that all warrants should bo pali
In the order of their presentation , from thi
particular fund on which they wrra drawi
and also expressly provided that these war
rants could no longer be received In pay
ment of taxes. The other , which , by tti
terms , was to substantially place cities . .n t
cash basis , was only applicable to cities or
ganized In 1881 or prior thereto and provided -
vided that each year's revenues should bi
devoted to that year's current expenses
This section of the code of 1888 wa a ;
822. Appropriations. 22 G. A. , ch. Iv , see
tlon 1 : All cities of the first class shal
make tholr appropriations for all the differ
cnt expenditures cf the city government fn
the fiscal year at or before the beglnnlni
thereof , nnd H shall be unlawful for th
city council or any officer , agent or employ
of the city to Issue nny warrant , enter Int
any contract , or appropriate any money i :
excess of the amount thus appropriated fo
th © different expenses of the city durln
the year for which said appropriation shal
bo made , and any such city shall not appro
prlate In the aggregate an amount In exces
of Ito annual legally authorized revenue
but nothing herein shall prevent mich cltle
from anticipating their revenues for th
year for which cuch appropriation wa
made , or from bonding or refunding thel
outstanding Indebtedness ; provided that thi
section shall not apply to cities of the fin
class organized slnco 1881.
Ilovr It AUcctn Thin City.
The code of 1897 adopted the cash basl
principle ) for an the cities of the etate with
out reference to the date ot their organlza
tton. Council Bluffs , therefore , not bavin
been organized until 1882 , the cash basl
law was not applicable to It until 1897. Th
district court held that warrants Issue *
under the old law had to be paid In th
order of their presentation and that th
now law was unconstitutional , as It Im
paired the rights of the holders ot the ol
warrants. The supreme court held that th
rights of the old warrant holders had no
been Impaired , as at the time they teethe
the warrants the cash basis law was I
force in the city and the warrant holder
had no right to comptaln of the enforcement
mont of the law , apparently overlooking th
fact that the cash basis law of 1888 dl
not apply to this city.
The opinion ot the supreme court on thi
point Is as follows :
I We have , then , this question to detei
I mine : Must a city pay current expense
from the revenues of the year In which the
i were Incurred to the exclusion of othr
valid prior Indebtedness , for which warranl
have been Issued and been presented fr.
payment and endorsed as unpaid for war
, of funds ?
U seems to bo considered that under th
1 law as It existed prior to the last codlflcn
tlon the warrants were payable In the orde
of their presentment. But It Is claimed b
plaintiff that under the code of 1S97 a dlffeii
ont rule prevails , and that now the currer
expenses of a municipality must first bo pal
out of Its current Income before any part (
' ald tncomo can be devoted to the cancclln
tlon of prior Indebtedness. Our attention I
called to certain provisions of thf statute.
I'rovlHlonn ot the Mtntntr.
Subd. 16 , section 668 , Code of 1897 , Is a
i follows ; "In cities of the flrst class th
, council shall make the appropriation for a
the different expenditures of the city gov
crnmcnt for each fiscal year nt or before th
beginning thereof , and It shall bo unlawf\ \
I for it or any officer , agent or employe of t
city to Issue any warrant , enter Into an
contract or appropriate any money In ex
cess of the amount thus appropriated , fc
the different expenses of the cltv during th
year for which said appropriation shall t
made. Any city shall not appropriate I
the aggregate an amount In excess of II
annually legally authorized revenue ; bi
nothing herein shall prevent said cities froi
anticipating their revenues for the year fc
which such appropriation Is made , e froi
bonding or refunding their outstanding In
debtednees , * * "
' Section S98 la In these words : "Loan
I may be negotiated or warrants Issued by an
municipal corporation In anticipation of It
revenues for the fiscal year In which sue
loans are negotiated or warrants Issued , bt
the aggregate amount of such loans and wat
I rants shall not exceed the estimated rove
i nues of such corporations for the fund o
I purpose for which the taxes are to bo col
| lected for such fiscal year. "
t The manifest object of these provisions I
i to place municipal corporations upon a cas
- basis and prevent the accumulation of sue
a floating Indebtedness as appears In tbl
I case.
1 In order to facilitate this return to a cash
paying system of cities that were burdenc
with a floating debt nt the time of the ador
tlon of the code It Is provided by section 9f.
of the code that cities and towns may re
fund such Indebtedness and Issue bond
therefor. Such section , it Is true , la m
made obligatory upon municipalities , bi
the power Is given to do no. In thus sookln
to compel the payment by municipalities (
current expenses from current funds tli
General Assembly seemed to follow the ac
tlon ot other states In this respect.
Under the Old Iniv.
Wo do not understand that counsel eorl
ously questions this construction , but It I
assorted on behalf of the appellee that bee
tlnn CCO of the code was In force when th
older warrants , for which a preference I
clamed , were Issued and Its provisions ton
part of the contract with the warrant hold
ers.This latter section relates to the duties t
treasurers of municipal corporations. By 11
terms It Is provided that warrants whe-
preaented to the treasurer. If not paid fc
want of fundu , shall be endorsed by that off )
cer with the date of presentation ; that h
shall keep a record thereof and that "a
such warrants shall be paid In the order c
their presentation. "
Section C60 of the code , and what U no
mbdlvlslon 1C of section C6S , were enactf
originally by the same general assembly
The flrat forma part of chapter 111 and th
other of chapter Iv of the lawu of th
Twenty-second general assembly , Bet
were In force when the warrants were la
sued , for which defendant claims a prefer
onto ot payment.
We may for the present concede that * ec
tlon 660 makes the warrant holder a pre
ferred creditor. But It seems clear that 111
provisions of pectton 68S also entered Int
the contract with the creditor and perhar
It might bo better said that ho assume
such relation subject to Its tenni. To gt\
orcc nnd effect , as we undoubtedly should ,
o both of thceo statutes , wo must hold that
be preference given to warrant holders bi
llion A60 applies only ap between warrants
sued In any given year. * *
U'e do not perceive that nny constitutional
uestlon Is Involved In thp cnno at bar ,
tough counsel devotes no little attention to
< e discussion of the right of the general
M mbly to Impalt the obligation of the
ontracts of the earlier warrant holders ,
he cnso Is presented here as though sub-
Ivlslon 16 , section 668. was enacted after
* ie creditors' rights had accrued under sec-
> on CGO. This we have seen Is not the case.
II of the warrants for payment ( of whlchl
t fondant seeks to retain the funds in his
ands were Issued prior to 189S , and It Is
lantfest from what we have said that the
elders thereof have no claim upon the rcv-
nues of that year , nt least until after cur-
ent debts have been paid.
City Attorney Wadsworth feels confident
hat the supreme court will grant a rchear-
ng of the case , as the > overnight , he says ,

lotvn I'rt > NN Comment.
Davenport Democrat : Des Molnes IR still
plugging away at her proposed auditorium.
More of that Kimo general apathy seems to
htand In the way of It. In the meantime
prospective conventions arc Invited to re
member that v.o have such a building ,
ready for business and adopted to all needs.
Sioux City Tribune : The soldiers of the
Fifty-second Ion a volunteer Infantry , no
longer soldiers , are home from DCS Molnes ,
each with an honorable discharge from
Undo Sam's service In his pocket. They
had no opportunity to Pee n battle , but If
they had they would hove given a good
account of themselves. Thov did all they
were required to do and they did It well.
To the colonel of the legtment , W. B.
Humphrey , and the other officers of the
staff and line , much credit Is due and to
the other men will bo accorded equal praise.
The Fifty-second wns not a "kicking" regi
ment. It did not attempt to work nny po
litical pull , but officers and men behaved
themselves like soldiers and thev stand high
on the armv records In consequence.
Marshalltown TlmesrRepubllcan : Cato
Stlls is one of the worst fooled politicians
In the state. He thought the Pick soldier
racket was going to drown everything else
In politics this fall nnd that It would be
anough to beat even Bob Cousins. So he
hunted around for a soldier candidate for
congress. Ho tried to get Captain Aldrlcb
of Marshalltown to run. But Captain Aid-
rich could not PCC how It would do him
any good , EO he preferred to stay with his
company In Florida. Finally the captain of
the Tlptcn company was induced to mount
Cato's "sick soldier" horse and enter the
raco. They both know by this time that
they made a mistake and that their capital
Is too light to do the business. Cato Is only
being laughed at for thinking he could suc
cessfully play such a game , while the cap
tain Is ridiculed for having allowed himself
to be drawn Into the scheme.
