A dispute has arisen between newspaper men and the Board of Supervisors over the payment of a bill for advertising u delinquent tax sale , the former claim ing p.iy for thee heading of the advertisement , nnd the latter refusing to pay for It on the ground that the law pro vides for a payment of 'JO cents for each piece of property advertised , but makes no pro vision further. The attorney gen eral decided that the board is correct In Us construction of the law.

NEWS FROM COUNCIL BLUFFS , Municipal Matters That Have Important Fntnro Bearings on Politicians. WHY HE WOULD HAVE USED HIS VETO. Muj'or Miirrao Sulil to Ilinn llri-n Prepared to liefcut Any Atti-nipl to Out lo n nf tint City ( Mill-lulu , It Is Muted that the ordinance which \vas voted clown at the council uoatlng Wcdncs- dny night relating to the salaries of ttio city oP.lctaU has boon killed beyond ull houo of resuscitation , und that It will never come up again , nt least under the present administration. Mayor mucruo , It has been learned since the mooting , snt still during the discussion with bis little veto lu his bund , ready to slap ( ton the ordinance the moment it showed up for his signature , but a * It was knocked out in the Mm round with the coun cil , 11 needed no flintier intention from him. The fact that It xvoul.t huvu been vetoed If passed , nnd the other fact that n number of votes largo enough to pass It over u vote could not on uny possibility havu been se cured , have proved beyond a doubt that any further tall : of making the intended changes was out of the question. One reason for thu unwillingness of the mayor nnd a rnujorlty of the uluorinon to IMSS such an ordinance was , us has already bcoii stated , the uncertainty that it would really Increase the marshal's salary Instead of diminishing it. City Attorney Stewart drew up tlio ordinance after the pattern of ono which had been passed upon and sus tained by the sutiromo court us legal , and it was suppos-jd that it would 1111 thu bill. It Is now learned that nt Dos Molncs , where the case In which the oriii- n an co was investigated , tnero Is no superior court , und consequently the question whotber or not tlio marshal coald lo on drawing the fees for bis wotk in ttiat court is not , touched upon. As the feas corning from the court are the principal source of revo no to thu marshal's olllco , it is very uncertain whether thuorJinanco would bo as unqunlilled a us those who favored It bad imagined. Itii sug gosteu by some that the mayor's anxiety to vote thn ordinance bud u business as well as a patriotic side. It is a well known fact that Mayor M.icrao will bo a candidate for re-election on either the democratic or citizens' ticket. As the ordinance which was before the council would have made a reduction in the salary of the olllco he hopes to hold u year from now. the reduction to take effect next March , wben ho hopes to deliver his second inaugural address , some fur sighted persons think they doe in this an ample reason why ho should bo ready and willing to make USD of bis veto power.

Warning Agulust Diphtheria ; Ono or two more cases of diphtheria hnvo been reported , Out the strictesfc.ire is Doing exercised on the part of the city oflfjials to prevent nn epidemic , with very peed prospects of success. One of the hardest things to contend against ic the unwillingness of the parent ! of chil dren who are suffering from the disease to have Iholr houses placarded us required by law. law."Most "Most of the trouble wo have , " said Mar shal Temploton yostordny , "comes from those who are generally considered the best people In tbo city. They ask their physi cians as a personal favor not to report the cases. Occasionally they succeed In in ducing the physician to call the disease by souio other name , but not often. Then when I go to tack up tbo yellow card they ask mete to put It on the sida door or the back door , erin in the front hall , or any place where people won't see it and stay away , .lust a little whitn ago a lady asked mo to wait until thu next day , us she was going to bavo a party that night and she didn't , want the people to bnvo to look at that ugly card when they cumo. They never seem to think that the only reason wo put , up thu cards is so ns to put people on their guard and .so pre vent the disouso from spreading. But most of tnem uro very willing to have the law complied with when they have matters ex plained to them. " So far the cases reported have bo n as fol lows : Amelia , infant daughter of II. U.

Tbo lirst experiment with the Australian ballot system In this city was mndo last evening nt the city building , when tbo Potto- wnttumio County Domocratio association had its annual election of otllccrs.

A certain monk , St , John of Damascus , ho says , was credited with a religious romance culled "Lifo of Uarlnam and Josaph.

It was translated into several European languages and event ually the hero of the story was canon ized. The facts are vouched for by many clerical participators in the dis cussion.

If a widow receives n pension under the now law , and afterwards establishes her rleht to a pension under the old law , she will receive pension for the who c period from the date of the soldier's death , less the p-m- Mon which has been paid to her In the mean time under iho now law ; In ether words , she will receive an additional per month foi the whole of the period during which .sho draw pension Under the new law , and In addi tion thereto , pension from the dnlo tlio soldier - dior died to the data of the commencement of the now law pension. Whenever a soldier or sailor of the late war dies from cause * originating in the scrv lco und line of duty , leaving no widow , bis children utrler sixteen years of ago are en titled to nil the pension to which the widow would have been entitled were she living , up to the date the youncost becomes 1(1 ( years of ago. In case of the remarriage of a sol dier's widow the pension which she has boon drawing or to which she would otherwise bo oniitiod , Is payable to the children uudor 1(1 ( years of ago at the date of her remarriage and continues until the youneoit child roaches the ago of 1(5 ( years. Children have thn same rights uudor the new law , no matter what the cause of the sold lor1 s death , provided they have not sunl- cicnt income from sources other than their own labor for their comfortable support , ex cept that the pjnsloa does not commence until the date of llllng a claim thorofor. rAHEXTS.

The romnrrlngo of the soldier's mother does not bar her from pension under thonaw Inw , if her husband is for any reason una bl to support her comfortably. The fact that the soldier or did notdid contribute to the support of his parents dur ing his lifetime , and the fact that the parents were or were not dependent upon the soldier at the tiino ot ms death , hns no oonr- ing upon their title to pension under the new law.

I1O\V TO A1TI.Y FOIl PENSION'S. THE DEE AND EXOUNEUBUIIEAU or CLAIMS was originally organized for tbo specinl pur pose of aflonllngjclalmnnts under the Indian depredation act of March S , IS'JI , the means of relief from tbo oxhorbitant charges of un scrupulous agents and attorneys who had boon charging their clients from a.3)4' ) per cent to 00 per cent of the amount of their claims , but so many ux-soldler.i and the widows nnd orphans of soldiers offered their claims for prosecution that it became evident that the Hold of usefulness of the bureau was not confined to the into reals of claimants on account of the depredations of Indians , and the scope and plans of the buronu have boon enlarged to moot the constantly Increasing demand for Its services In behalf of tbo sol dier public. The bureau does nothing by halves , and n soon as it was decided that the claims of sol diers and their heirs must occupy a largo share of Us nttontion an effort was mndo to .secure the services of an expert und thoroughly re liable attorney to whom could bo safely en trusted the delicate nnd important interests of Us soldier clients , nnd whoso work would ineot their expectation. In this the bureau has been eminently successful , having se cured the services of Mr. Carroll O.

Whenever it is found that any person ask ing for advlco is Justly entitled to pension or additional allowances from * .ho government the proper papers will bo prepared free of ex lion and forwarded to him by return mail , without charge. If the applicant then doslres the services of the bureau in the prosecution of his claimho will execute the papers sent him according to instructions , which will bo mulled there with for his guidance , utter which ho will return thorn to tbo the ofllco of the buicau , and Upon their arrival thuro the claim will bo promptly tiled in the proper depnrtment and prosecuted to completion at the earliest practicaoln date and with the utmost care and diligence. No charges will bo made In any pension claim until the allowance of the sumo , and then only the legal fco fixed by law. In claims for Increase of pension , the fee charged by this bureau Is only $ ' , payable only In the event of the allowance of the claim. In other claims tha amount usual varies according to the naturoof llio cuso and the law upon the subject.

It is in every way comparable with some of the creat lakes in America : for , while its area is only 9,000 squnro miles , mak ing it much smnllor than the three largest of the live great lakes and about the exact equal to Lake Erie in super ficial extent , its enormous depth , -1,000 to 5,000 foot , makes the total volume of its waters about equal to those of L-iko Superior. Its level is 1,850 feet above that of the Pacific ocean , but , notwith standing , its bottom is more than 3,000 feet below it. There are many ether deep lakes in the world , but so far Baikal takes the palm. Lake Maggoiro is 3,000 feet deep , Lake Como 2,000 and Lego-di-Gurdu , another Italian lake , nearly 1,900 feet in depth.

Day after day it is to bo read in the papers that some unfortunate has gone into a grave imiikod "unknown , " or perhaps some most prominent and respooted cit- i/cn has disappeared from sight and gone nobody knows where , the last possibly the sequel of the first. Then , again , after weeks of anxiety and fruitless search some friend or relative is fre quently found or dead in some hospital. Now comes the proverbial "Yank , " und with a plan to alleviate all this.

Hero is what the originator of the plan has to say : "Fate and chance are two uncontroll able factors in every man's life. " Struggle as ho may" , bo prudent as ho can , the unknown events of the future bear down upon him with resistless force , and In a second ho may bo swept away to a violent death or moot with serious injury.
