Along the line of the Northwestern east of
Marshalltown the storm was quite severe.
In Hancock county a train of cars on the

this morning that no one In that vicinity
at least waa Injured.
Two freight cars were derailed on the
Northwestern at Ames, but not as a result

Vain- Vnoxpen.ded Balances.
Attorney General Mullan has rendered a
legal opinion for the benefit of the State
Board of Control in regard to unexpended
balances in funds for ths various stste
institutions. Ths board had some funds
tor the Behoof for the Deaf at Council
Bluffs which could be saved and a part
applied to the Immediate needs of the in
stitution incident to the fire loss, If that
course would be legal, and the attorney
general was asked to give a decision In
ths esse. He decided that such unexpended
balances could not be used for purposes
other than that designated by the legisla
ture, and It would do the board no good
to effect a saving In one fund with the
intention of using the money elsewhere,
where It ia more needed. The decision
affects all the state Institutions alike and
disposes ot a question which had not he
fore been settled.
Law Reform Suggestions.
The committee on lew reform of the

reporter bo made appointive by the court
Itself. There has been a great deal of
trouble because of disagreements between
the reporter and others and an effort was
made laat winter to have the office made
appointive. The report will also recom
mend appointment ot a committee to In
vestigate and report on the proposed law
to prevent the marriage of degenerates.
