LAW IS INVALID

Indianapolis, Fen. The supreme
court holds uucoustitutioual the act
passed by the last session of the legis
lature, nvrthnrlzing the governor to ap
point a board of safety for Fort Wayne
having control of that city's fire de

of the' fire department that are held
to make the act invalid, but they are
so involved with the police provisions
that the latter can not be separated,

evidence of added- excitement in the
past week, and the business closed has
been very heavy. This has been al
most entirely for delivery in the sec

inllueiieed by the difficulty of getting
iron already ordered and the practical
impossibility of finding even carload
lots of foundry iron for delivery before
'They seem to feel that this condi

furnace output will be greater as time
passes, also that railroad troubles will
disappear to a large extent. A varhv

are exerting themselves most to hold
down prices are evidently not taking
all the business offered them, since
other sellers are getting top prices from
the same buyers.
