ceipt of numerous .Inquiries aa to the ef
fect of the recent decision of the supreme
court regarding the payment of the occupa
tion tax by saloon keepers. Dr. B. 1 Hull
ef Tobias haa written to know whether
the money rightfully belongs to the city or
to the schools. '
'The question raised In Toblaa la not one
oyer which the district meeting has any
jurisdiction ' whatever," aald Mr. Fowler.

to call a apeclal district meeting for the pur
pose of determining by ballot whether the
500 charged aa aa occupation tax shall be
paid to the school treasurer or shall be
held and used for the general expense of
the village. ' Whether thia occupation tax
belongs to the school district or to the
village Is a question to be determined only
by a court of proper Jurisdiction and It
would perhapa have to be carried to the
supreme eourt for a decision there before
It ts finally settled."

vate office and Representative Llttlefield of
Maine temporarily vacated the chair of the
house in committee of the whole In order

the democratic and many of the republican

matter discussed by Mr. Bryan with the

people. He urged democratic aenators to
use their best endeavors to force an early
vote on the resolution by the committee
which now has It In charge and that an Is
