Jungs Wheeler In district court yesterday
d -nied the application of State Senator
uur,ders as coun.'il for. Fire Chief Jones
for an order rextmliiliiR' the Fire rind Po
lice commission, from exercising It rights
a-d diitla an ruch ponding the, determina
tion of the quo warranto proceedings In
stituted by Mr. Eaur.dcrs attacking ttio con
st Itutlonallty of tlie law creating the com
mifslm. In arriving at this decision Judge Wheeler
held that the nutrition of the nnotltutlonal
Ity of lha law creating the Fire unci Police
commlPf Ion did not enter Into- the case ot
this time, the question of the application
for the restraining order alone being he
fore the court. In view of the fact that
the law had been enacted by the stctc leg
islature, signed by the governor and duly
placed Pn the statute hooka and the com
mission appointed under nnd according to
Its pnrvl -tons. Judge Wheeler hp id. It
' 'wauld 'Sot. In. his opinion, lie within the
provlrce of this court to Iffiue nny order
preventing the commls.Mcncrs from acting
OS ruch. While it wai tr:ic, he ?ald, the
antltutlqnnllty of the law crnttng them
li-id been ett tcked, the cr mmlssluncrs were
tie facto officers nnd ns Mich were entitled
crclne the rights conf. rri.d upon them
perform the duties asMnned to them.
At the fame time Judge Wheeler ruled
that if later the law creating the Fire nnd
Police commission is determined to be un
constitutional and the commissioners are
neiing without legal r.uthorlty. Chief Jonea,
If fllsmliwd from his position na hend of
the (Ire. derartmert. would then be able to
recever nl! the emo'uments of such office
from the day he Is discharged and would
then he reinstated as chief.
In "handing down his decision Judge
Wheeler took occasion to remark that he
relieved the members of the Fire and Po
lice comtnlcslon wfuild give Chief Jonea
a fair and Impartial trial, and that If the
Chnrgfs should not be proven, they would
reinstate him. Friends of Chief Jonea, how.
ever, realize that his deposition Is a cer
tulnly. as such action was determined upon
before the commission was appointed and
the harges were filed .with that purpose
As the matter now elands, the commis
sion Is at liberty to proceed with Its orlg-
Innl program nnd hear the charges against
Chief Jones, and appoint Charles M. Nichol
son, the former democfBTlc chief of the
department, In his place. As Mr. Snunders
has to be out of the city for a day or so

NO ROOM FOR A CHARGE OF PARTIALITY

DES MOINES. May 11. tSpecial.)-After
a two days' gt-sslon the members of the
State Hoard of Educational examiners have
agreed upon the method of putting Into
force the Stookey bill pased at the last
session and providing that the state board
may designate certain colleges of the state,
the graduates of which should be entitled
to state teachers' certificates without ex
amination. Thsie was the possibility of a
merry war and much rivalry among the
colleges. Certain of the big colleges would
rather the little ones would not be given
this consideration and all the little ones
wanted In themselves, but wanted all the
others cut out. Instead of passing on the
various colleges ond educational Institu
tions of the state separately the state board
has decided to set up a standard and allow
every college that conies up to the standard
to come In. Tbe board spent much time on
this standard and will probably finish It
and have It ready for announcement soon.
It Is propsed to make certain requirements
and fix them definitely as to courses of
study and professors of certain efficiency.
After this Is fixed em-h college In the state
will lie allowed to make application for the
privilege of having Its graduates furnished
teachers' certificates without further ex
amination If they wish it. The state board
will then merely determine whether the
college comes up to the standard or not.
In this way It Is bellved there can be no
possibility of any charge of partiality,
which is the one thing the board desires to

The executive council has solved the ques

time being ut least by moving the geological
department to the brick flat building that
stands on slate ground across the street

building is now occupied by the stite food

to the secretary of the executive council
and the rooms occupied by the secretary of

REMARKABLE ST0NE IS FOUND
That Rrsrlns Portrait of Washington
Picked tp in tooth
SIOUX FALLS, 8.. D., May ll.--Spe-clal.)
An Interesting and peculiar "And"
was made by some of the men employed
on the mammoth stock ranch of P. F.
Wlckhem In Hanson county.
The find Is In the form of a 'stone sbout
twice the size of a man's hand. The stone
has the appearance of belonging to some
of the flint varieties, but had become el
most as soft as limestone. The Interest
ing feature of the find Is the fact that
upon a smooth side of the stone Is a re
markably llfe-llko portrait of George
The portrait was so skillfully carved In
the surface of the stone that every line
Is clearly dlsccrnable and the features can
be recognized at a glance as those of the
father of his country. Everyone who In
spects the stone and portrait declare with
out hesitation that the portrait Is that of
Washington, showing that an artlu's liund
guided the chisel with which it was cut
deep Into the stone.
The stone Is perhaps a trifle greater In
length than a man's hand and about three
inches In thickness. In color U is of
light gray and unusually heavy for Us
size. One side Is Jagged and uneven, as If
it had boen broken from a ledge or larger
stone, while the other side Is smooth and
slightly oval In shape. It Is upon It that
ths portrait appears. The stone n.vst
have been brought a long distance, ss bo
other stone of the same character la to be
found In this part of the northwest. Much
speculation is being Indulged In as to the
Identity of tho person who carvd .the
features of Washington In the stone and
as to the period when this wss done.
