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. In the event of construction or pur-

WASHINGTON. Oct. 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. Buck, for supreme council of
Belgium: Adolphus Fitsgerald. for supreme
council of Ireland; Henry C. Alverson. for

Teller, for the supreme council of Colon
and tha northern supreme council of the
United States; Edward B. Hussey. for the

for the supreme council of Paraguay;
George F. Moore, for the supreme council
of Itsly; A. C. Stewart, for the supreme

preme council of Mexico.
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.
