Law Creatine the Board of Fir sail
Police Commissioners Is Attacked
on Constitutional Uroands
by HI Attorneys.
The charges filed by O. P. McKesson
against Chief Jones of the Are department
were not heard by the newly created Fire
and Police commission yesterday morning,
and R. W. Jones Is still chief of the fire
department of Council Bluffs, despite the
determination of certain parties to oust
him from that position la order that the
former chief. Charles M. Nicholson, may
be Installed in his place. The members of
the Fire and Police commission received
another setback yesterday morning when
Deputy Sheriff McCaffrey served notice on
them of the temporary restraining order
granted by Judge Wheeler late Tuesday
The hearing on the application for a
restraining order against the commission
has been set by Judge Wheeler for Satur
day morning, and In the meanlma Hubert
Tlnley, B. M. Sargent and Louis Zur
mtielilen are enjoined from assuming or
attempting to net as a Board of Fire and
Police commissioners, so as to In any way
Interfere with Jones In the discharge of
his duties as chief of the fire department,
or from enforcing an order restraining
Chief Jones, or from requiring him to de
liver property of the city to the control of
another, or to require him to cease to
wear the uniform as chief of the deport
ment. Judge Wheeler's order clearly reinstates
Jones as chief of the fire department and
annuls the order of the commission last
Saturday night suspending him pending the
hearing of the charges filed by McKesson.
Life of Commission at Stake.
This temporary restraining order waa
issued by Judge Wheeler for the reason
that State Senator Saunders, as counsel
for Chief Jones, commenced quo warranto
proceedings yesterday morning in the dis
trict court attacking the constitutionality
of the law creating the Fire and Police
In attacking the constitutionality of the
law the following charges are made: That
the provisions of the act are In contraven
tion of section 8 of article 1 of the con
stitution of the state of Iowa as follows:
"All laws of a general nature shall have a
uniform operation; the general assembly
shall not grant to any cltlsen or class of
citizen privileges or immunities which
upon the same terms shall not equally be
long to all cltlrens."
That It Is contravention of the constlut
tion of the state of Iowa in that it requires
a political test aa a right to hold the office
of member of the Board of Fire and Police
commissioners, and denies to all persons
excepting those holding certain political
beliefs, and having certain . political af
filiations, the right to hold and enjoy the
office referred to.
Another contravention of the state con
stitution charged Is that the law limits
the selection of members of the commission
to citizens of the state who shall have
been residents of the city In which they are
appointed for more than five years next
preceding their appointment and thereby
denies to such citizens who have not been
residents that long the right to hold such
offlce. Further, It Is charged that the law
Is In contravention of the state constitution
in that It limits the selection of the mem
bers of the commission from the two lead
ing political parties and denies the right
to all persons not members of such political
The final result of the proceedings here
will be watched with interest by seven other
cities in the state In which the fire and
police departments are now under control
of a commission. They are Sioux City,
Des Moines, Davenport, Clinton, Cedar

Mayor Macrae has joined the ranks of
the auto enthusiasts and a few dnvs ago
acquired ownership of a first-class ma
chine. He rode to the meeting' of the
city council Tuesday night In It and he
rode home In It, but h? did not reach homo
as early as he had planned or anticipated.
While the meeting Tuesday night was not
aa prolonged aa that of the previous night.
It was past 11 o'clock when Mayor Macrae
got aboard his auto and started to "crank"
the machine up, while Manager Hart of
the water works company, who was to be
driven home by the chief executive, stood
on the sidewalk.
The mayor commenced to "crank" and
the machine commenced to wheeze as If
It had the Influenza, but nothing more.
Nothing daunted the mayor kept on crank
ing until the perspiration streamed down
his face. Then he doffed his overcoat
and went at the cranking once more. The
machine persisted in doing nothing more
than wheeze. By this time the eight mem
bers of the city council and a few other
sympathetic friends had gathered around
and tendered their advice gratis to the
chief executive of the municipality.
Councilman Wallace suggested that the
patrol wagon horses could be used to ad
vantage, while Councilman Maloney gave
It aa his opinion that the machine was
suffering from appendicitis and should be
sent to the mayor's private operating room
In the Bdmundbon hospital. Another sug
gested that the mayor let Manager Hart
take a turn at the cranking. Now Mr.
Hart Is a chauffeur of wide renown, and
the way he went at the crank showed this
to be the case. The machine, however,
remained obstinate and did nothing but
cough, and badly at that Relief appeared
at hand, however, when former .Councilman
Metcalf drove up In his big touring car.
"Got a little gasoline?" asked the mayor.
"Sure," replied the former councilman
from the Fourth ward. While the ex-councilman
was hunting for the gasoline, with
the assistance of a patrolman's electric
searchlight. Manager Hart was vigorously at
work "cranking" and occasionally repeat
ing something which Councilman Wallace
declared did not sound like the Lord's
Just as Mr. Metcalf unearthed the gaso
line, the mayor's auto responded to the

Fire Destroys Stable of the Hoaaland
Lnmber Company.
Four draft horses were burned to death
In a fire which destroyed the barn of the
Hoagland Lumber company at Eighth
avenue and Main street about 4 o'clock
Wednesday morning. Prompt work on the
part of the fire department alone prevented
the fire from spreading to the lumber sheds
and adjoining buildings.
The origin of the Are I unknown and
the department was unable to discover who
turned In the alarm. It Is thought likely
that the blaze waa accidentally started by
tramps who .were using the bam as a
sleeping place, as a couple of tramps were
seen loafing about the place late In the
When the fire department reached the
barn, which la wltht.t the enclosure of
the lumber yard, the four horses were al
ready down and the whole Interior waa
afire and the flames pouring through the
roof and Into the shed adjoining. By hard
work the firemen succeeded In saving the
greater part of the stock, consisting of
cement and plaster, stored In the shed ad
joining, and prevented the flames from
spreading to tha nearby lumber sheds.
F. A. Fox, local manager for the Hoag
land company, estimated the damage at
about 12.600, Including the value of the
four horses, which he placed at $3,000. The
loss Is fully covered by Insurance.

DES MOINES, May 8. Special. ) A man
riding on a paan, who brings suit for dam
ages, cannot collect for his passenger fare.
according to a decision of the supreme oourt
Ben Im SallJnger of Carroll county was In
Milwaukee and telegraphed to a Carroll
friend asking how soon he had to be back In
Carroll to attend oourt. The friend wired him
to be back by Wednesday noon, but the
Western Union failed to deliver the mes
sage. Falling to get a message Balllnger
claims to have come home two days earlier
than necessary, thus leaving business unr
completed in Milwaukee and Chicago, and
he brought suit against the Western Union
to recover damages. Including his expenses
of travel. In the district court trial he
was asked If he dtd not. In fact, ride on a
pass, and the lower oourt held that he dtd
not have to answer the question. The su
preme court says that he must answer
the question, and a man Is entitled to col
lect what expenses he Incurred and not
what expense he might have Incurred.
The court In its opinion says: "If plain
tiff rode on a pass and paid nothing what
ever for railroad transportation, he is not
entitled to recover from this defendant
what another person would have had to
pay who was not so fortunate as to have a
railroad pass. In short, plaintiff was not
entitled to speculate on the defendant and
charge up expenses which he did not In
fact Incur. A fundamental rule as to the
recovery of compensatory damages Is that
such recovery Is limited to reimbursement
for actual expenses."
The court further holds that If a man
chooses to ride In a day coach all night
he cannot collect for sleeping car berth.
Draft Money Preferred.
In a case Involving the failure of the
Bank of Olln the supreme court today hold
that money paid to a bank for a draft and

Chicago bank when the Bank of Olln had
no fund on deposit there and the payment
of the draft wa refused. He also paid S17B
on a note to the bank that the bank had
sold to a third party. The bank failed to
turn the money over to the third party,
however. A few day later the Bank of
Olln failed and went Into the hand of an
assignee. Whlteomb brought suit to hare
hi claim declared preferred and paid In
full. The lower court decided against him
and the supreme court reverse this.
Valuables In Baggsge,
The supreme court In the case of W.
Bergstrom against the Rock Island railway
today held that when a' railroad receives

talnlng other than clothing and the agent

checked his baggage, paying excess. One
trunk containing an oriental seal 4.000 years
old, some art embroidery of the fourteenth
and fifteenth centuries and other valuables

trict court allowed damages for about one
tenth. The railroad appealed on the ground
that It was not legitimate clothing. The

against a railroad receiving baggage other
than clothing and that If it did receive it
