Bourlclus expects to become heir to prop

the correction of the marriage record here
Tbe full name of Mr. Bourlclus Is Mar
Inus Bodlnus Louis Bourlclus, and that of
his wife before her marriage to him, Jo

Tbe law In tbe Netherlands requires that
all names of persons and places be spelled

Wheeler's order, so corrected yesterday.
The law of the Netherlands a too requires
that all persons under the age of 80, before
being married, must publish tbe marriage
bans three times, with an Interval of four
teen days between each time, with the
statement of the parents' consent. This
Mr. and Mrs. Bourlclus failed to do, and

their marriage, any trouble for themselves

BIDS ARE ALL BEYOND REACH
Addition to Pierce Street School Can
not Be Built with Money
As the figures tailed to coma within the
amount appropriated, the Board of Educa
tion last night rejected the three bids re
ceived for the building of the four-room
addition to the Pierce Street school. It
was decided to modify tbe plans so that
the addition can be built for the $8,000 ap
propriated for the purpose by the vote of
the people at the school election. The mat
ter was referred to the committee on
grounds and buildings to confer with the
board's architects, Messrs. Cox ft Bchoent
gen. The bid of Wiekham Broa. was $11.
990, including plumbing and heating. Tbat
of John P. Weaver was $12,210, figuring the
heating at $1,185 and the plumbing at
$1,225. George Hughes' bid was $11,800, fig
uring the plumbing and heating at tbe same
figures as contained In Weaver's bid. Wick
bam claimed to be the lowest bidder by $11,
as his figures for plumbing were subject to
deduction according to the material used.
All of the figures on the plumbing were
subject to changes, according to material
used, making It Impossible to determine
which was the lowest bid unless tabulated.
Hughes bad failed In his bid to figure on
the beating and he was permitted to add
the amount for this work, tbe other bid
den consenting, as they had all used the
sams figures, furnished by tbe same plumb
ing Arm of this city.
Several suggestions for modifying the
plana were made, one of them being to
only partly complete tbe addition this year
and ask for another appropriation at the
next school election. After a lengthy dis
cussion, during which Member Macrae pro
posed that the building be deferred until
material and labor became cheaper, tbe
matter was referred to the committee on
buildings and grounds to confer with the
board's architects and report at tbe next
Tbe secretary reported that all outstand
ing warrants bad been taken up and that
the district was now on a cash basis, there
being a small surplus In the building fund
and about $1,000 In the contingent fund.

authorised to secure plans and bids for

In tbe basement of the Bloomer school In
stead of in the yard.
Tbs grand piano in use at tbe High school
tor the last year was ordered purchased at
a price of $375 Instead of paying a rental

The board decided to Join with the prop

tbe council to lower the grade of that
street tour feet. This wtll Improve the
grounds at the rear of the Pierce atreet
school. It was dsctded to request the city
council to establish a permanent grade on

school abuts on one slds.
It was decided on tbe recommendation
of Superintendent Clifford to retain Charles

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, Msy $4. (Special.) The
supreme court in a decision in a Council
Bluffs case today rendered an opinion which
will stand as a precedent In matters re
lating to building and loan associations
and their duty to carry out contracts. It
wss tbe case of Elizabeth Field against
the Eastern Building and Loan association.
She had become a stockholder to tbe amount
of five shares of stock of $100 each. The
contract stipulated tbat In seventy-eight
months the stock would mature on pay
ments of 75 cents a month.
The plaintiff lived up to ber part of the
agreement, but when she attempted to re
cover the amount of the stock she was In
formed tbat tbe estimate was wrong and
that she would have to continue payments
If she desired to mature the stock. Many
questions were raised In the trial, but tbe
court devotes greatest attention to the con
tract, it states tbat the contract was not
sn Informal, hastily rrepared memorandum.
but a part ot a carefully devised plan of
business. "The great body of the patrons
ot such associations is made up of men
and women of limited experience," says
Justice Weaver In the opinion. "Not one in
a hundred of thjm, though of fair average
intelligence and caution, would put upon
the contract any other construction than
the plaintiff did."
A determined stand has been taken by tbe
court on questions ot repudiation of con
tracts of this character. The opinion says
"It Is repugnant to the very accepted dell
nltlon jot contract that one party shall be
clothed with a right to repudiate Its obli
gation In whole or part while holding the
other In strict compliance with Us terms.
"There Is nothing in the nature or organ
lzatlon of tbe defendant which can or ought
to relieve it from the performance of its
con tracts. The fact. If It be a fact, that in
the end it may not be able to pay the
claims of other members is a matter we
cannot consider. We are not charged with
the duty of winding up the affairs of the
corporation xr aettllng the rights ot mem
bers upon a final distribution of Its assets
if any. Our only duty at this time is td
construe the - contract on which suit is
brought and t enforce it accordingly. The
action is held maintainable. "
