city attorney to bring suit and ordered
the suit dismissed, to all of which the
mayor objected. The mayor hired an ex

offset against the warrants. Judge Travis
heard the suits and on the warrant
marked "Subject of Personal Taxes," he
dismissed the suit and in the other which
had not been stamped he Issued a man
damus directing the treasurer to pay
same. Both were for small amounts, but
suit was brought to test the law. The
case will be carried to the supreme
court , i
