New Law Meant to Give Preference to
Old Soldiers in Appointment to
Office Held Unconstitutional.
A recent court decision which will
be of Interest to old soldiers as well as
holders of.appolntlve offices is that de
claring unconstitutional the law passed
by the legislature last winter, which
provides .that old soldiers shall be
given preference in the appoinment
of state, county and city officers.
The law provides in the appointment
of officers old soldiers, sailors, and
marines shall be given preference in
case they are qualified to fill the posi
tion for which they apply. The law
further provides that no old soldier,
sailor, or marine shall be discharged
from office which he now holds except
for misconduct or inability which shall
be established by hearing. The statute
however, is not meant to apply in the
appointment cf deputies or to offices of
a strictly confidential nature.
T&e first decision, as far as known in
this state, on the law was on the appli
cation of C. H. Shaw, for a writ of
mandamus requiring the city council
of Marshalltown to appoint him city
clerk, instead of L. Derby, the present
officer. An application for a writ of
temporary injunction was denied, and
a demurrer to the action raised by the
city was sustained by Judge Caswell at
the present term of court. The old
soldiers have now become interested
in the action, and Assistant Adjudant
General Newman of the department of
Iowa G. A. R. is authority for the
statement that the case will be appeal
ed to the supreme court at onec, Mr.
Newman gives what he purports to be
the facts in connection with the law
in other states of which he learned
while attending the annual encamp
ment of the national G. A. R., recently
held in Boston, Mass Mr. Newman
"While attending the oonfereuce at
Boston, I had a conference with James
C. Kay of Brooklyn, who originated
the idea of the soldier preference law
and has done more to get the principle
established in various states than any
other. He assures me that the law fn
New York state, for which he is Large
ly responsible, has been tested before
the supreme court there in every pos
sible phase, and has been sustained in
every respect Iu the state various
lower courts at first held it unconsti
tutional. In Kansas a law similar to
Iowa was declared null by a lower
court, and on aDpeal the supreme court
decided the law was all right. Ia thac
case, as in Iowa, the test came on a
matter of appointment of city clerk.
We would have preferred that the test
would come on a case where it was
sought to remove an old soldier, but
the principle is the same. We have no
doubt but that the law will be sustain
ed by the Iowa supreme court.''

Petit Jury Was Dismissed Last
R. A. Romans Wins in the Case Against
D. C. Thew. Other Minor Case Up
For Consideration.
Quite a number of unimportant cases
have, been disposed of by the district
court since our last publication. As
we went to pre?s last week the case of
Romans vs Thew was occupying the
attention of the court. The case was
not given to the jury until late Wed
nesday afternoon and after consider
able disagreement a verdict was finally
reached awarding the plaintiff $125,
the amount for which he sued.
The case of the Independent District
Dow City against Treasurer Booth and
his bondsmen was next brought to the
attention of the court but it was finally
ruled that the arguments should be
presented in writing so they could be
considered in vacation.
The jury was dismissed Friday and
since then the court has considered a
number of minor cases and attended to
routine work. It i6 expected court
will adjourn some time this week.
Monday evening Judge Powers held
a session of juvenile court, as provided

The moving picture show at the
opera house Saturday evening had a
very flattering attendance. The house
was jammed long before the entertain
ment began and Mayor Carey finally
ordered the sale of tickets stopped to
prevent any danger from overcrowding
the house. Our citizens have for a
long time considered a moving picture
show as a hoodoo on account of the poor
quality of those which have appeared
here, but the free exhibition given by
these people last Wednesday evening
convinced those who saw it that here
was an exhibition worth seeing. Con
sequently there was a crowd of nearly
a hundred people waiting for admission
when the doors opened Saturday even
ing. These were mostly those who had
not reserved their seats and who were
anxious to get in and get good places.
The rush and jam about the ticket
window was furious andcontiuued until
the sale of tickets was stopped. The
opera house management was surprised
at the large audience and is now sorry
that the show was not taken in on com
mission Instead of renting the hall tQ
