The drainage law was amended by the - legislature and Brown Co. claimed that the contract awarded them in 118 was still valid and In force under the enabling act of the. legislature when it corrected the drainage law which had been declared null end void by the supreme court. They not only asked for a permanent Injunction re straining the two counties from entering Into any other contracts for the two ditches covered by their former contract, but asked for an order authorising them to proceed under the old contract, both of which hava len denied by the supreme court. .

Judge Kennedy of the equity court lis tened to affidavits Wednesday morning In the Injunction case against members of the local Typographical union.

W. J. Connell, attorney for the union, was absent, being engaged In a case In fed eral court, and the defendants' cam was presented by W. P. Thomas.

AFFAIRS AT SOUTH OMAHA Board tf Education Looki Oter Proposed litti for School Bnildicf. NO DECISION ARRIVED AT UP TO DATE Talk of S aerial Sewer Bead Kleettoa Which Orrart Wltela a Week Has Seaslded City Hall Site tioeslu. After considerable consideration ester day af term on the Board of Kducatlon put the question of a decision on the site for the new school building over to another time. A number expressed a preference for the three lots offered st Sixteenth and H streets. The board took . pains to go over the grounds and take note of the good features of each. It la the object to get a aite as near the center of the district ss possible. The only drswback to the location at Six teenth and H streets is that the ap proaches have not been graded. The grad ing of Sixteenth street has been ordered as far north as I street, but this lacks a block of reaching the proposed site. It Is likely that provision ran be made for extending this grade by interesting the residents In thst quarter In the mat ter. At all events the grade can be es tablished by the city engineer at this point, so the board will know how to plan for the construction of a new build ing. There are three kits offered here. The board had another meeting last night to settle with the contractors for the additions to the Uncoln and Madison schools. Improvemeat Clak Meeting Postponed. The regular meeting of the Highland Park Improvement club, scheduled for Thursday evening, will not be held that night on .account qf conflicting with the charity ball, but will be postponed one week, to Thursday evening, the 15th Inst. Arrangements have been made to give an Interesting program of addresses and music on that occasion and light refresh ments will be served. The music will be furnished by the Elks' quartet of Council Bluffs. , which made such a hit at the high school auditorium last month. The program of speakers win be an nounced later. Candidates Barred from Board. It has been discovered that according to the new election law the parties who file as candidates for any office cannot legally act as registrars for the revision of the polling lists, neither can they act as clerks nor Judges of the elections. In connection It haa been discovered that not less than seven of the present board of-registration appointed last fall have filed as candidates for the approaching election. Therefore there will be seven vacancies to be filled by tha mayor before the first day of regis tration, which is next Saturday, February 10. Testerday the clerk sent out letters notifying these parties of the effect the matter of filing had on their right to serve as members of the board of registration. All other members of these boards have re ceived due notice of the day of revision snd will ba on hand. Talk of Hood Election. There has been absolutely no discussion in a public wsy on the matter of the special election which is now only one week dis tant. It appears that the discussion has been pretty well threshed out In the strug gle to have the question csrrled over to the regular- election. Except for the occasional comment in the newspapers no one says anything about the bonds. Charity Ball Toalgkt. Tonight will be the occasion of the Char ity ball. Judging from the advance sale of tickets thia will be one of the largest at tended balls in the history of the charity organisation. The final arrangements were made nearly a month ago and the society people and many who do not lay claim to tha rank, but who make up the firm and admirable following will ba there to enjoy the pleasure and add to the funds of the organisation. UossId of City Hall. With the order on the part of the city council last Mondsy directing the city clerk to advertise for propositions for the site of the proposed city hall, the ques- tlon arises Whst has become of the Plvonka Injunction case?" It is well known thst notice of appeal was filed after the last decision In the esse, but since that time no one has given the public any light on the matter. It was evident that Spltser & Co. were not afraid of another tleup when they bought the city hall bends when they were last of fered for sale. It Is bsrely possible that they knew- that the appeal would be dropped at that time. There has been a statement to this effect within the past two days. City Attorney Lambert declared last night that he had i.eard that the Injunction suit had been dropped, but that It was- not lo be taken as the final v.-ord. for there Is yet plenty of time for a change of mind with regard to the case. It ia aaid that the restricted area, within which offera for the site will be con sidered, leaves out the Plvonka property entirely. They will not. therefore, be able to enter the conij etltlon even if they should enntinus the Injunction. Reaabllcaa t labs' M-ss Meetla.
