At Davenport Police Magistrate
Hubbell Wednesday discharged from
custody Sebastian Kurd, the Kimball
house barber who refused to take an
examination for a license under the
new city ordinance. The police mag
istrate 'decided that the law couldn't
touch him if, after being in the busi
ness there for 25 years, he declined to
take an examination to test his com
petency to continue his work in the
future. On Mr. Kurd's behalf his
counsel, Charles T. Cooper, argued
that the ordinance was an abridgment
of his constitutional rights, and that
it was an illegal exercise of a power
which the city did not derive under
tbe state laws. He made a point of
the fact that the ordinance gives a
barber no right to appeal, but leaves
the final decision as to whether or not
he may ply his trade in the city with
the lmard of examiners which the
