That the city of Coum-ll Bluffs has the right to Issue iS.onO bonds for the con struction or purchase of a water works plant and by so doing not exceed its con stitutional limit of Indebtedness. Is the de rision of Judge Fmith McPherson of the Tnlted Btates court, handed down ysster dsy in the suit brought by the C. B. Nash company of Omiha against the city. The suit or the C. B. Nash company, wh cb attacked the validity of the proposed bond Issue, Is dismissed by Judge McPherson and the Injunction which the company had secured pending the trial of the case, re straining the city from further proceeding In the matter of the Issue of these bonds is dissolved. The principal question raised In the ault was whether the Issue of the . water works bonds would Increase the indebted ness of . the clty .bevond the constitutional limit. The petitioning company took the position' lliar Tn Indebtedness of the city could not legally exceed t per cent of the taxable value of the property of the city while tbar1tr contended that It could Incur an Indebtedness up to -5 per cent of the actual 'raltie which is tour times that of the taxable value.

I Cw wvmmr, - - li constitution and the lews statutes prior to the time when the city of Council Bluffs took any step towards creating the proposed indebtedness, the question as to this court is foreclose!. Ana ine tow a supreme -court having so decided prior to the vear ISO (In 1SV and that opinion be ing the latest expression of that court upon the question, this court by reason of a long. unbroken line of authorities, must give the same construction to the Iowa statutes and the Iowa constitution. And as section L chapter 49. acts of the Thirty-first Gen eral assembly authorised the S per cent debt to purchsse or construct water works, the city is within both the statute and the constitution. Therefore, as In any view under the evidence as to the existing In debtedness of the city, an additional In- debtednewa of piOO.OOu will not exceed the constitutional limit, the bill of complaint herein Is dismissed. The suit brought by the C. B. Nash com pany was begun nearly a year ago. shortly after the special election on October TT, IPOS at which the proposition to Issue 6M. 006 bonds for the construction or purchase of a water works plant was approved by the vote of the people. Evidence was taken during the summer before J. J. Ferguson as special examiner and the case was tried before Judge McPherson at the recent ses sion of federal court In this city and was by bins taken under advisement. Appeal Will Be Takes It la understood thai, an appeal will be taken to the United States circuit court of appeals. L. E. Crofoot of the f Inn of Cro foot it Scott, attorneys 'for the Nash com pany, said, when Informed of tha decision of Judge McPherson it had been tha under standing that an appeal would be taken In tha event of an adverse decision and he had ao doubt this would be done. Mr. Crofoot said he did not think any effort would be made to continue tha injunction. although this might be dona pending the determination of the case on appeal, by the company giving a bond. "The prac tical effect of an appeal," aald Mr. Cro foot. "would be to prevent tha sale of the bonds, anyway, inasmuch as no bond com pany would take the bonds until tbe ap peal would be deckled." . Cwaarll Proceedings Legal. On the question of the records of the city council meetings dealing with the pre liminaries for the special election at which the bond proposition was submitted to the voters, the court holds that the corrections were sufficient. On this point Judge Mc Pherson says: The city council has a rule, but which Is not covered by statute or ordinance, that the regular meetings of the council shall be held on the evening of the first Monday of every month. Tbe last meeting of the council in August, l'.Oi. waa August L The record, as made un at the time, re cited many doings of th council, none of which were connected with thia matter and they recited an adjournment, not specifying any time. Thia record w-as signed by the mayor and the clerk. The next Monday was the first Monday of Sep tember. The record, as made up for tha day (Monday, September 1). showed that the mayor and all el?ht of the council men were present and that, on motion, the council adjourned until the next evening tluesdayl. it la conceded that that record waa untrue. The mayor was not present. nor were six councilman. Two of the coun cilmen were In the building, but not In the council room. These two voted to adjourn uniu niwoiy evening. Proceedings were adopted at the Instance of the complainant nerein. 10 correct tne record of Monda evening and ahow the truth. Thereupon the council changed the record of August 14, showing that the council then declared that the next regular meeting should be September g (Tuesday), as , Monday the tth, was a holiday. And the record of Sep tember 7 was changed so as (o show that these two adjourned the meeting until the next evening. But It seems to me that an adjournment by less than a quorum, ratified by the actual presence of all members at the time to wnicn sucn adjournment was attempted, and the tranaartion of business, is not to b questioned by the courts- But sside from ihla, it will be kept in mind that the corrected record shows that by a unani mous vote the council. August 14. adjourned until September s for the next regular meeting, thereby in effect suspending or abrogating the rule for a Monday. Septem ber 7. meeting. Owe Polat Xt Rated Ppa. The Nash company contended that In strict compliance with the law the council thould not have taken action ou the mat ter of calling a special election until the meeting following the filing of the petition asking for such election. The records of the city council showed that action order ing the special election was taken the same night that the petition was presented. Judge McPherson does not seem to have ruled on this point In his decision. The advocate of municipal ownership in the city council were greatly edified when they learned of Judge McPherson's decision In favor of the city. They expressed them selves as being In favor of at once taking steps to secure municipal ownership of the water works system, either by condemna tion, purchase or construction of a new plant.

It-Interest In to day's work of the supreme council for the southern Jurisdiction. Scottish Rite Masons, centered In the election of four active mem bers to fill vacancies created by death. Orand Commander Richardson thia after noon. In ronsistorial session, conferred on William Hayes Laird of Winona, Minn., and Benjamin B. Allen of Nashville, Tenn.. the Inslgna of tha Order of the Orand Cross. This order was unanimously con ' ferred upon these gentlemen at the bien nial session of the supreme council two years ago, with directions that its In vestiture upon tha persons honored should be performed during the present session. Commander Richardson stated that It was conferred upon Messrs. Laird and Allen for distinguished service in the cause of Scot tish Rite Masonry. Another event of interest was the recog nition of representatives of other supreme councils near the supreme council for th southern jurisdiction, all of them thirty third degree, active, as follows: Charles F.

These representatives of other Scottish Rite bodies the world over were received by the grand commander and asked if they had any message to present to the council. Repreeeatatlvee Make Reports. Mr. Moore, representing Italy, told of an Interesting situation among the higher Ma sonic bodies of that country and said: "About one year ago there was a schism In the ranks of Italian Masonry, brough about by the action of certain meTbers ot the supreme council, who were also mem bers of tha Italian Par;iamei't. Tr-era was pending In the Parliament a bill providing for nonsectarian schools, and an amend- I tnent was offered to the bill. Klrht (nem- I bers of the supreme council voted against the amendment to the bill, and thereupon It was attempted to discipline them for their votes, 'This mode of using Masonry In religious and political matters waa disputed by the supreme council, over which Chevalier Sa verlo Fera presides, and thereupon severs I members withdrew and took sides with the grand orient of Italy, which Is somewhat active In tbe politics of the kingdom. The supreme council recognised by the supreme council for the southern Jurisdiction of the United Ststes. by Its recognition of today, hat reaffirmed the Masonic doctrine that Masonry does not In any of Its degrees In terfere with the religious or political con victions of any man." The newly elected active member for Mis souri. A. C. Stewart, representing the su premo council for Brasil. said that h; brought love and greetings from a daughtei recognising the supreme council for the southern Jurisdiction as the mother council of tha world, to which she pledged loyalty and fealty.
