It-was Minnesota's ball on her 15 yard line. Minnesota by most des perate work landed the ball on Michi gan's 30 yard line.

The effect of this decision however, will be to prevent the city from carrying out the Fruin-Bambrlch Construction Co. con tract or their building the works un der that contract. "As a rule the United States court follows state courts where the latter have construed either state statutes or state constitutional provisions. The fact that the appellate court has re fused to reverse Judge McPherson would seem to indicate that for some reason that court has declined to fol low this general rule in this case. I am unable to conjecture the reason unless it be that the appellate court holds that the Swanson case is a de parture from what the supreme court of Iowa has heretofore held in respect to what municipal debts are within the meaning of the constitution. The only way the city can go ahead with the Fruin-Bambrich Construction Co. contract would be to appeal to the supreme court oi t^ie United States and secure a jeversal of this decision. The only other way for the city to build works would be to begin anew and let the contracts for works. The question would then arise whether the federal court in that case would follow this last decision. Whether it would be likely to do so or not will depend very much upon what ground is taken in the present decision." Captain Jaques Talks. Captain W. -H. C. Jaques, city solici tor, was seen this morning by a repre sentative of the Courier and confessed that he does not understand the ac tion of the federal court. .* "It surprises me greatly," he said, "and I cannot imagine what reason can be given for the decision. The precedent which has been set so often in similar cases is so well known that it is almose useless to cite cases to a court, but in my argument I cited a dozen or more decisions in which the state supreme court's decision has been upheld by that of the federal court. This Is the tflrst time I have ever known of a decision like this one and I do not know what to make of it and will not until I receive a copy of the opinion Itself from the clerk of tne United States court of appeals. The City's Position. "The position of the city is now an odd one. It could now be served with a mandamus demanding that it go ahead with the Fruin-Bambrich Construction Co. contract since the injunction has been removed by the state supreme court, but in the face of this the injunction issued by Judge McPherson still holds, having been affirmed by the court of appeals." City to Go Ahead. Mayor Pickler and Alderman Hog lund, chairman of the fire committee, both of whom were seen today by a Courier reporter, stated that the coun cil will go ahead with the contract and Installation of the new water works system for the protection of the busi ness district of the city, the plans and specifications for which are already on file. Tlie cost of this plant i3 to be paid from the water sinking fund and this matter will not come under the jurisdiction of any court as the money is already in the fund, which was created for the purpose of build ing a waterworks system. Both Mayor Pickler and Alderman Hoglund are at a loss to understand the decision of the federal court and neither do they know just what will be done as a result of it. The only thing of which they are certain, as Captain Jaques said this morning, is that a petition for a re-hearing of the case will be filed with the United States circuit court of appeals at once. This is to be done no matter what grounds are taken by the federal court in making its decision for the city so licitor says he has grounds enough for the petition in the fact that in many previous cases the federal court has always followed tlie supreme court of the fftates in interpreting the state constitutions. Might Buy Plant. According to Alderman Hoglund, the city would consider a proposition from the City Water Supply Co. rela tive to the purchase of the present plant from the company. Alderman Hoglund, when asked as to this, said: "Yes, the council would undoubted ly consider such a proposition if the price were reasonable. Three years' ago we offered the company $65,000 for the plant and the reply was that in the opinion of the company the city had no right to buy the plant and that were it to be sold the price accepted could not be less than $500,000. This was out of the question, as we viewed it, but we offered the company a new franchise proviued it would agree to spend $150,000 on improving the plant. Then the owners of the plant agreed to take a francinse and spend $5,000 a year on improvements, provided the franchise included a clause guaran teeing the company its income at that time, which was $82,929.78, and inter est at the rate of five per cent on fu ture investments. This too was out of the question and we were practi cally forced into taking the matter into our own hands." The Wabash Railway will sell on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month, round-trip tickets at one fare, plus $2 for the round-trip, to points in North western Iowa, North and South Da kota, Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas, Ne braska.
