If Colonel W. F. Baker, member of the
Board of County Supervisors. Is permitted
to have hla way the city streets and alleys
fund will derive litUe If anything from the
proportion of the county road fund tax lev
ied within the city limits. Colonel Baker
placed himself oa record at the meeting of
the county board aa being opposed to al
lowing any portion of this fund passing out
from under his direct control. He ex
preeeed himself, however, as being willing,
under certain conditions, to allow the city
to have the direction of the expenditure
of 40 per cent of the portion of the fund
properly belonging to It.
The statute provides that the portion of
the county road fudd tax levied within the
limits of the city shall be expended under
the direction of the city council. The dis
position of this portion of the county road
futjd baa for several years proved a bone
of contention between the county board
and the city council, but the two bodies
after more or less controversy have auc
ceeded In arriving at an amicable eettle
ment. From the position taken by Colonel
Baker yesterdsy the city council antici
pates that an appeal will have to bo taken
to the courts before any arrangement will
Last year Supervisor Matthews, who rep
resented the district Including Council
Bluffs on the county board, made an ar
rangement with the streets and alleys com
mittee of the city council whereby It had
the sole control of the expenditure of 65
per cent of this portion of the county road
fund, the county, represented by Matthews,
retaining the remaining 45 per cent. The
.5 per cent was turned Into the city treas.
ury In pursuance of this agreement.
Baker lsikes a Staact.
Saturday morning Aldermen Lou gee,
McDonald and Cagtwr, composing the
streets and alleys committee of the city
council, went before the county board with
a proposition that the city be allowed
SO per cent of the fund and that the county
retain 40 per cent on the understanding
that the city ahould have the entire con
trol of the expenditure of Its portion. In
the apportionment of the county road fund
Thursday among the supervisors for ex
penditure in their respective districts the
proportion levied within the city limits
waa Included in the amount apportioned to
Colonel Baker, the supervisor from this
city. When the aldermen submitted their
propoaitloa Colonel Baker at once raised
a atrenuoua objection and for a time would
liatea to do argument oa the question. He
took the positive stand that the money had
been apportioned to him for expenditure
and that the city ' might direct where It
should be expended aa the law provided,
but that be should have sola control of

the members of the streets and alleys com

guated with the chilly reception they had
ben accorded and declined to discuss the

DE8 MOINE9. April . (Special.) In
the Third congressional district th demo
crat are making preparations to run ex
Governor Horace Boles against Speaker
Henderson. A few days ago Editor Baldwin
of a local democratic paper at Cascade, la
Dubuque county, clipped an article from
Bryan' paper which contained an attack
on Cleveland and sent it to the ex-presldent
with some comments thereon. Editor Bald
win waa a staunch follower of Cleveland
and he called attention ta the fact that
since the party leadership haa been turned
over to Bryan the democratic majority of
over 4,000 In Dubuque county has been
turned into a republican majority, and this
notwithstanding that on of the ablest of
the editor following Bryan haa been edit
ing a dally paper In that county. Dubuque
county 1 aleo the home of Speaker Hen
derson and Senator Allison, yet despite this
fact It waa for many years strongly demo
cratic Mr. Baldwin sent these statements
to the ex-presldent merely for his informa
tion, but received In reply the following;
letter, which contains . Cleveland's latest
views tn regard to the political situation:
PRINCETON, N. J.. March 24. 19M.-C.
D. Baldwin, Esq.: My Dear Sir Aa a
democrat exceedingly anxious to see our
old party In Its true course again. I thank
you for your gratifying and reassuring
ienr vj ine ani. i nnve reaa it with
great interest and profit. The manly
frankness of the message it contains en
forces In a wonderful wav the Inntinoi
of lamentable democratic wandering which
have come under your own observation.
I shall be surprised If like Instances found
In many parts of our land do not put our
party on Inquiry, and doubtless many who
like you are willing to acknowledge that
true devotion to the old time-tried prin
ciples of democracy should supersede the
whim of apparent expediency and fudlsm
that have led ua Into the slough of crush
ing defeat and humiliation and left us
there to remain or be extricated by other
hands. Tours very truly,
G ROVER CLEVELAND.
May Be a Veto.
A delegation of prominent lawyer called
cn Governor Cummins today and urged that
he refuse assent to a bill becoming a law
by which it would be required that suit
against premium note in Insurance com
panies shall be brought In the county w here
the maker of the note lives. At first the
law waa ao arranged that the notes would
b made payable in th- counties where
made, but afterward it was changed. It
Is now contended that this would be Illegal
and that the courts would bold such a law
to be Inoperative. The purpose of the pas
sage of the law waa to avoid annoyance
from speculator who buy up these pre
mium notes, especially In the rase of de
funct companies, and compel payment even
though the company la gone, because It 1
easier to pay the notes than to fight them
In court far away from home. If the suit
had to be commenced In different counties
they would be valueless.-
Sapreaae Coart Decision.
The supreme court In an Important an!
Interesting decision today paased on the
question of negligence of a railway com
pany in the rlghta of trespassing children.
It was a case against the Burlington, Cedar
Rapids aV Northern Railroad company, tried
In Muscatine. Children playing around a
turntable unfastened It and one waa In
jured. Suit was brought against the com
pany for damages and a Judgment secured.
The company claimed that th children
were trespassing and therefor the com
pany waa not liable. The court holds that
the law as to trespass does not apply la the
case of children in the same way as to
adults and that the natural Instinct of
children to play and to seek to play with
any movable object cannot be restrained.
The Judgment of the lower court Is there
Clara Blaydea of Muscatine left in her
will a bequest for an orphans' home to be
located In Muscatine within five years from
her death, but If not ao located th money
was to go to a home for old womea. The
Lutheran organised and located an or
phan' home, but placed It Just outald of
the city limits. The truatee of the Old
Ladles' home claimed the money because
the orphans' asylum waa not located ac
tually within the city llmlta. The court
holds that the conditions of the will had
been substantially compiled with by placing
the asylum on ground adjoining the city.
To folios Ing are the decisions placed on
file today, after which the members of the
court went to their respective home:
