Rl-LIXG : ROAD TAX CASE
Deelslon of Supreme Coart Meaas
Mach to Corporate Towns.
If the recent ruling of the Iowa aupreme
court on the road tax case la rightly In
terpreted here. It means much for the city
of Council Bluffs. Ai a eaae from Jasper
county, according to the press dispatches,
the supreme court i said to have held that
the Board of County Supervisors must ex
pend wltUo the city limits all of the road
tax which la derived from the 1-mlll levy
for road purposes on property within the
city. The upreme court, ft Is reported,
held that the law on this point waa man
datory. The expenditure of that portion of the
nvid fund levied within the city haa for
sekeral years paat been a bone of contea
tlorti between the municipal authorities and
ColcaaJ Vf.- F. Baker, local member of the
BoarA, of County Supervisors. While the
law provides that the supervisor shall ex
pend this money as derived from taxation
within the city under the direction of the
city council. Colonel Baker ha ateadfastly
naintataed that it' was not mandatory, but
merely optional for htm to expend all the
fund thus derived within the. fity llnulta.
Each year for several years back. In fact
ever alnce Colonel Baker has been a mem
ber of the county board, the city has been
forced to compromise matters by accepting
a small portion of the road fund for work
within the city, the balance being expended
by Colonel Baker on roada outalde of the
