some length and while he admits the
question is a close one, he holds with
the defendant upon every point raised.
C. F. Reddocli states he will perfect an
Immediate appert to the supreme court
and will file the same on Monday.
After holding that the act Is a legis
lative one and not a Judicial one and is
therefore submlssable to a referendum
vote under the Black law, the court
The 8unday Rest Law.
"The next argument of the plaintiff,
and It seems to me to be the strongest
advanced In support of plaintiffs posi
tion, is that the Sunday rest law con
fers upon the city council the power of
action, Instead of conferring It ex
pressly upon the city. It is argued that
this is an express grant of power to the
council and exc' ides the reserve power
of legislation which Is granted to the
people of the city through the referen
dum, which applies only where the
power is vested in the city as dis
tinguished from the council. This is a
' very Ingenious and clever argument. It
! presupposed a dictinctlon between the
grant of power to a elt and a grant of
power to Its council as the law-making
power of the city, and unless such a
distinction exists It seems to me that
the argument must fail. In some cases
the statutes confer power upon the city.
but even In those cases the statutes
say that the city may act by ordinance
: or by law. Revised Codes, sec. 2238, ses
sion laws 191V chapter 81, p. 266. This
demonstrates that the legislature re
cognizes and intent's that the ordinary
method of legislation by cities Is by
ordinance, an 1 thus by the act of the
council. In other cuu the vrttnt of
power la to the council directly. There
la nothin* In the atatutea to conv'nce
me that there la any Intent to dis
tinguish between the two cases, but on
the other hand I am satisfied that the
leglslaure used the term 'city* and
"city council' In the same sense lnthls
connection. I am therefore unable to
sea how the use of the word 'city
council' necessarily excludes the refer
endum. I think that the referendum ap
plies whether the power In question la
expressly »ranted to the city or to the
council as the law-making body of the
Must Be Construed Together.
Concluding his decision Judge Mo
''The Su. day rsst law and th- Black
law which confers the right of refer
endum must be read and construed to
gether. The fundamental question In
this ca_ j Is whether the legislature
meant to make the action of the'coun
cil final In the matter of the Sunday
rest law In Black law cities, and ex
clude the right of the referendum con
ferred by another act of the same
legislature upon such cities. For the
reasons given above It Is my Judgment
that this question should be answered
in the negative.
"The demurrer Is sustained. I do not
suppose that the plaintiff will care to
amend, but will stand on the legal
questions so skilfully conceived and so
ably argued by his counsel. If the
plaintiff does not care to amend, the
writ of prohibition heretofore issued
will be quashed and judgment will be
for the defendants."

CITY Of WEISER
WINS ITS CASE
Decision Is Given Against
New First National Bank
The alternate writ la quashed and
the> peremptory writ of mandate denied
In the case of the New First National
Bank of Columbus versus the City of
Weiser, by a decision handed down
last night by the supreme court. The
original proceedings before that tri
bunal required the city authorities of
the city of Welser to pay the funds
arising from assessments made In a
certain Improvement district In a cer
tain way. The decision is written by
Chief Justice Sullivan and concurred
In by his associates.
In this case the plaintiff bank sought
to require the officials of Welser to
apply moneys now available In local
Improvement districts Nos. 6 and 7, as
well as all moneys hereafter to be re
ceived, In the funds, first. In the pay
ment of Interest upon the bonds of the
district. Second, after the payment of
Interest, apply such funds as are avail
able In either of said districts to the
redemption of the improvement bonds
In their order, beginning with the low
est number. Upon the application an
alternate writ of mandate was Issued
and on the return the defendants de
murred to the petition and also Inter
posed a motion to quash.
In Its syllabus the supreme court
holds In part as follows:
The bondholder has no claim against
the city on account of the debt created
by euch bonds and is given no right as
against a landowner who has paid all
of his assessments, and the city au
thorities have no power or right to di
vert any portion of the principal or in
terest paid such taxpayer to the pay
ment of Interest and principal owed
by a delinquent taxpayer.
The bondholder may proceed In the
matter as provided by statute and can
either secure his money from the de
linquent taxpayer to obtain title to the
property by such delinquent, free and
clear of all Incumbrances.
The plaintiff In this case has a plain,
speedy and adequate remedy at law for
the collection of any principal or Inter
est due from any property owner who
has failed to pay any assessments
made by the city authorities, and that
being true the peremptory writ of man
date will not Issue.

DECISION IS GIVEN IN
LINCOLN COUNTY CASE
In an action to recover on a breach
of contract entitled Adelhald Wolter
versus D. D. Dixon and Adelhald Wol
ter In her own proper person as widow
and administratrix of the estate of
Peter Wolter, deceased, versus D. D.
Dixon, on appeal from the Fourth Ju
dicial district court for Lincoln county,
the supreme court last night handed
down a decision reversing the Judg
ments entered for the defendant.
By stipulation of counsel two ac
tions are presented In one transcript in
this case. Both cases are the result of
an agreement to sell certain real and
personal property made by Mrs. Wol
ter. This agreement to sell recites a
cash payment of 3100 made at the time
It was entered into and that the fur
ther sum of 35000 should be paid ac
cording to the schedule, the other sums
to be paid also being set forth. A mar
ginal notation was made on the agree
ment to execute a chattel mortgage to
secure the payment of the first de
ferred payments. The payments were
not made. A dispute arose over their
settlement and litigation followed. The
supreme court finds the evidence failed
to support the findings of the lower
court for the defendant. The trial
court Is directed to enter Judgment for
Mrs. Wolter for restitution of the prem
ises with damages for unlawful deten
tion, and for the recovery of the per
sonal property, or In -case a recovery
cannot be had, that the Judgment he
entered in favor of Mrs. Wolter for its
value, both to be determined by the
trial court from the record. Justice
Budge wrote the decision. Hls find
ings are concurred In by hls asso
