I War between the federal government

torney General Wickersham, Gov. Fotl
of Rhode Island afid Solicitor George
McCabe of the Department of Agrli
The "whole' embroglio arose over
question of whether the federal govt
ment was under any obligation to pa
license' to a sovereign state. That qi
tion has not yet been definitely sett
but it has been sidestepped by a decis
that the government can pay a fee t
state whether it can pay a license or i
Just what the legal difference betwee
fee and license is remains a secret in
bosom of the Attorney General, bui
any one wants to know, possibly he '
communicate it privately.
Meantime the. settlement of the quest
has cost the parties at interest i
the end is not yet.- The state of Rh
Island is in imminent danger of a i
for damages, materia! and exempte
and possibly the question of criminal li
defamation of character and false imp
onmcnt will .also be raised before
matter is settled. The original cost
the license or fee. as it was termed W
paid, was two dollars.
Chestnut Blight Primary Cause
_ The trouble was due to the ramif
~ tjons of the chestnut blight. When
" forestry cloud was hanging over >
England the state of Rhode Island 1
glad enough to avail Itself of the serv;
of the Department of Agriculture In
eating the cases of blight and to co-o|
ate in the matter with the federal I
j ernment. At that time one of the pi
pathologists of the government was t
to run down cases of blight, and runr
I being bad on foot he used a motor cy
j Everything Went merrily and the chest
! blight was being segregated and crow
j to the ropes when a Rhode Island t
I stable butted In. He loomed up In
j middle of the highway with a st
i metal badge of the contour of a scallo
i pie plate on his heaving bosom, and
j manded of the plant pathologist whal
' blazes he was doing riding a motor e;
; without a state license. The pi
| pathologist replied with more wan
I than diplomacy that he did not neei
State license because he was a fed<
To this the. constable demurred,
said there was no law so far as he ki
to prevent a federal officer walking,
he'd be gosh-dinged if he could go sni
ing around on a motor cycle withou
Htate license.
! Thus the issue was joined. The eh<
i nut blight blighter was haled to the n?
est justice of the peace and the mr
| cycle was impounded in the box stall
j the village livery. The pathologist w?
ed home. He p'ut up a kick to the
j partment of Agriculture and was info
ed that the department was not pay
any state licenses, but that he could ;
it himself if he warfted to. He did
I want to. ,
Passes Through Legal Channels
The case was put in the hands of
department's legal adviser and Solid
McCabe said of course he could not sa

put up to the Attorney General and
Governor of Rhode Island, and the
agreed that the license could not be p

ed. He wore out what he claimed in
expense account was $0.47 worth of s
leather, and the state of Rhode Isli
i paid Silas Lethbridge, _ the liverym
{ $*.50 for six months' r'en^ of the 1
; stajl. The powers 'consumed more tl
six months in pondering the case.
I the meantime the chestnut blight had
i its second wind and was distancing
plant pathologist who pursued it afoo
Dr. Galloway, the chief of the bur
of plant industry, is a mild-manne
man, and Dr. Metealf. the chief of
; chestnut blight investigation, while
ing a public-spirited citizen, is also ave
to lezal strife. Thev offered inintlv

- Tax Becomes a "Pee."
! Things appeared to be at a deadli
when Attorney General Wickersh&m c
reived the brilliant idea of paying the
cense tax as a "fee." Just wThat the le
g difference might be he did not expls

of- Highways in Barry Farm Sub- I
it'e division May Be Dedicated J
to Government.
z ;
ed, Members of tne Hillsdale Citizens' Assoras
elation hope to make It unnecessary for a
Jj*? Congress to pass the bill which is now b
lr. pending, providing for the condemnation
of public highways, in the subdivision b
known as Barry Farm by Inducing prop- J
erty owners to dedicate them to the gov- a,
ernment. A
This plan was proposed at the meeting ^
held last night in Odd Fellows' Hall in
Sumner road. I
There was much discussion of the mat- |
ter and much satisfaction expressed over I
the fact that after many years the government
would endeavor to control the
highways. It was stated that it has p
been impossible to get the Commissioners t
to Improve the streets in the past, owing
to the fact that they did not control them.
The committee named to take up the matter
consists of Messrs. Dale, Howard,
Wilkerson, Jones. Smoot, Harris, Parker,
Webster, Chapman, Taleferro, Conrad and
Stewart. The committee is to make a
house-to-house canvaas. If successful,
sewer and water mains may be laid. ^
Schools Are Considered. te
Public school matter were given much
attention. The present Birney School, it
was stated, is now filled to its capacity,
j. and an appropriation will be recommend- t!1
ed for the erection of an additional eight:o
room building in the suburb. Strong op- fl<
id position was voiced to the plan advanced
by the Garfield association that stmt In

ent to the Garfield School, where there
eems to be ample room. The distance,
. was claimed, is entirely too far to reelve
serious consideration.
To strengthen the claims for a new
ulldlng, a committee was appointed to
lake a canvass of the community to asertain
the number of children of school
ge and who are not at present attending
ehool. This committee has as its memera
Messrs. Wilkerson, Jones, Chapman,
aleferro. Dale and Stewart. The schoool
fttcials will also be asked to provide a
artltion at the present school in order
hat the boys' and girls apartments may
e separate as in other schools.
Stickfoot Branch Sewer.
Reports were submitted regarding Stickoot
branch. It was stated that work
rill be started In the near future to place
. sewer at leaat over a part of this
ranch, which would be continued as soon
a funds were available. A petition will
e presented to the Commissioners
equesting a cement sidewalk on both
Ides of Nichols avenue for a distance of
bout three blocks from Howard avenue,
.dditiona. street lights also are desired
