under an unconstitutional law in trans
acting county court business. While
the city is defendant in the proceed
ings Judge Bell is not himself directly
involved in the case.
Attorney Johnston does not contend
that the law authorizing the county
clerk to call in the probate judge to
fill a vacancy on tne county bench is
constitutional. He considers it unnec
essary to do so. He takes the posi
tion that the probate judge is a de
facto officer whose . acts are binding
upon third parties and cannot be at
tacked in a collateral proceeding, such
as the one brought by the Burlington
roafi. The company is held in this
case to be a third party.
Taking up other points raised by
the appellant Mr. Johnston argues that
the court was justified in declaring
a default when the company failed to
file its objections at the time set' for
a hearing, July 5. and further that the
court was not justified in setting aside

Reports brought in by workers at
their noon lunch today showed that
$8,989 had been raised in the last 24
hours. Of this sum the leading item
was the $4,175 given by the manufac
turers and reported by A. G. Abraham.
An earlier announcement from the
manufacturers was prevented by dilli-
culty in getting the various governing i
boards together to take action.
O. F. Anderson also reported for j
the first time from the banks, $1)00 j
being contributed by the city's five!
institutions. The retailers increased j
their . offering by $1,286, and the
churches by $923. Nearly all depart
ments reported some success, the sum
generally ranging below those given.
An unexpected donation was one of
$50 from the Ladies' Aid society of
the Lutheran church at Hampton.
