R. KNAUL, Pharmacist,
The case arose in one of the interi
or counties of the state where a mem
ber of the school board, who is au in
surance agent, Is trying to get the
board to take insurance on school
buildings in the companies which such
member represents.
That portion of the opinion directly
affecting the question says, "Aside
from the statutory prohibition iigainst
the practice the common law prohibits
a member of the school board from
selling materials or supplies to the
school district. The logic of this case
applies with equal force to the selling
of fire insurance to the aehool district,
uoth are against the public policy."
Based on Court Opinion.
".'The opinion is based on the case of
Bey against Davidson in the'1
S3 Iowa
supreme court reports. That case lays
down the board rule that no person in
a judiciary capacity or serving in a
capacity of public trust has the legal
right to do any act, make any deal for
his principle which will result in a
financial profit to him. Special atten
tion is given to school boards, city
councils, boards of supervisors and
persons serving in such capacities.
The case holds that not only is it il
legal but against sound public policy.
It is quite probable, in thu opinion of
attorneys who were asked eoncerning
the opinion that it applies to condi
tions in Des Moines and might be in
ferred to embrace the renting of of
fices in the Fleming block from Robert
Fleming, president of the board.—Des

8pecial Counsel Lee Renders Opinion
Relative to Members of School
Board Selling Supplies.
Opinion Most Sweeping—Holds That
It Is Not Only Illegal, but Not
Sound Public Policy.
Members of the school board have
no legal right to write fire insurance
on any property belonging to the
school district, neither do they have
any right to sell any supplies or ma
terials .to the school board, accord
ing to an important opinion handed
down by N. J. Lee, special counsel of
the state department of justice.
The opinion goes even further than
this and makes the sweeping asser
lior that members of a school board
have no legal right to deal with the
board of which they are members, for
supplies for the district if by the deal
such member is to make any money.

Tl.e electric light company is felici
tating itself that the break, which oc
curred some ten days ago, has been
fully repaired and the arc lights are
again in commission. The company
was considerably embarrassed, not be
cause of the less in income, but be
cause of the failure to furnish street
light during the dark nights whiie the
revival services were being held, and
because of the unjust criticisms in
dulged in by a few on account of the
absence of the lights. People gener
ally, however, were charitable enough
not to find fault, because they kHew
it was not the fault of the company
