DISPOSITION OF EXPOSITION WIGWAM Iloard Amrttf to A a * the Debt One nd Take Poll Charge of the Balldln * < U * Bold r llamore * . At th clewing Msiton of tbe Beard of County Supervisors yesterday morning the chairman , Colonel W. F. Baker , waa made the recipient of * handsome testimonial from his colleague * on the board and county officers. ThtTtestlmonlal was In tbe form ot a valuable gold watch and chain and was a small token of the esteem felt for him by his official associates and a recognition of the faithful manner In which he had per formed bla official duties. County Attorney C. O. Saunders made the presentation soon after the board convened aad the gift came as a complete surprise to the colonel. In making the presentation Colonel dannders said to Colonel Baker that every time be wanted to know the hour of the day be would bo reminded that be bad net p r- formed bis duty In vain and'that he rutlred from the county board with beat wlshea and esteem of those with whom he bad b * n officially connected. The whole affair waa such a complete sur prise to Colonel Baker that for a time he was overcome , but be pulled himself to gether and heartily thanked his associates for their kind remembrance. Tbe most Important matter before the board yesterday was the question of the dis position of the Pottawattamle Wigwam on the exposition grounds. President Graham of the Council Bluffs Exposition association , who baa had entire charge of the building during the entire time of the exposition , ap peared before the board and asked that some disposition be made of the matter. He gave It as his opinion that If It was de cided to hold another exposition next year the building could be sold either to the new exposition management or to some private Individual and that It would be al lowed to remain where It was. He Informed the beard that be bad been notified by tbe management of the exposition that tbe building would have to be removed by Jan uary 1 at the latest , but be believed that be could get the time extended for another month. Mr. Graham presented a bill for the main tenance ot the Wigwam during the month of August , which had never been settled , and requested that the board order * It paid. George F. Wright appeared on behalf of tne Council Bluffs Exposition association and guaranteed tbe board that If it would pay the bill , which amounted to about $140 , that the association would lay no claim to an equity In the Wigwam and that th board could make such disposition of the building as It saw fit. Tan board , after considerable discussion , decided to stand good for the amount of the bill. The matter of the final disposition of the Wigwam was left to a committee consisting of County Auditor Matthews , Supervisor Baker and President A. C. Graham of tbe exposition association with Instructions to either sell the building as It stands , U tne exposition Is to be continued another rear , or else to have It torn down and the lum ber brought to this city to be used oa tbe repairs to county bridges. The balance of the session was occupied In dlsp'slng of a number ot bills , after which the board adjourned. Tbe next ses sion of tbe board will be held on the first Monday In January , when County Auditor John Matthews will succeed Colonel Baker as member from this district.

Cltr Lone * the Poll Tax Salt ftroagbt Before Jmlicr Ayle worth. The city has failed In Its suits brought against C. R. Hanan. cashier of tbe Cltt- j tens' State bank , and Attorneys G. H. and I L. G. Scott , to enforce the payment of poll tax. The suits were brought In tbe superior court and the defendants demurred to tbe petition filed by tbe city. Tbe demurrers were based on four grounds : First , tbat the superior court had no Jurisdiction ; second end , that the notice was Insufficient In that it did not ccmply with the law and did not give tbe necessary time of notice as provided by the laws pf Iowa , neither did It show competent or sufficient service and further that same was not given prior to the 1st of September of the year for which the city I asked payment for poll tax a > required by the city ordinances ; third , that as shown 1 by the city's petition and exhibit there had been no legal , sufficient or proper notice given to the defendants requiring them to work out or pay the eald poll tax ; fourth , that tbe amount in controversy claimed by the city was In excess of the amount due under the laws ot Iowa. Judge Aylesworth yesterday handed down his decision sus taining the demurrer and overruling It In part. He sustained It on the lecond and i third grounds and overruled It on tbe. first and fourth. The decision is therefore In I favor of the defendants. The Schlltz Brewing company filed a mo- I tlon for a new trial In the suit brought against It by John Llndt , and In which the Jury awarded Llndt a verdict for $515. I Tbe forenoon yesterday In the district court was occupied with the trial of the accreted land case of Roosa against Hough. , The case promises to be a long drawn out affair , as much of the evidence consists ot tbe introduction of old records to show the boundaries of the property In controverty before Boyer lake became dried up.

Wester- dahl , died Wednesday morning , November 16 , al 6 o'clock , after a lingering Illness , of tuberculosis , aged 22 years. The .closing of this young life was pathetically sad , as she bad never known a mother's love , her mother having died nt her birth , nnd but two and one-half years ago she stepped to the altar a happy bride. "Death loves a shining mark , " nnd slndX > the birth of her Infant son , eighteen months ago , it became evident to her friends tbat she was not long for this world and would soon be num- bered with them that were , but now are not. In the hope of staying tbe hand of the dread Destroyer , upon the advice of physi cians she was taken to Arizona for several months , but tbo change proved unavailing , and two months ago ehe returned to die In the home where she was born and mar ried. Her sufferings In her lost Illness were agonizing in the extreme , but were berne without e murmur , never losing hope of ulti mate recovery. Her death bereaves a hus band , an Infant son and three staters , who rendered her loving attention In her last Illness. The latter are Mrs. Charles Mat- thai , Mrs. C. C. Lincoln ot Wyoming , III. , and Miss Mamie Allen. Since the marriage of Mrs. Matthal the entire care ot the youngest sister , Edith , devolved upon Miss Allen , who cared for and loved her with a devotion almost akin to Idolatry , and who will now render a like service for the lit tle son , George Allen. The remains , decked In her bridal robes , were encased In a silver grey casket , com pletely bidden with floral offerings of lov ing friends and rested in the same corner of the room In which she first saw the light of day , where they were viewed by friends till ihe hour of the funeral , which occurred on Friday afternoon at 2:30 : from St. Paul's church , Rev. L. P. McDonald reading the services at the church and at Falrvlew cemetery , where Interment was made. The following young friends acted as pall bearers : E. C. Hodder , Will Green , C. L. Wrenn , F. H. Schwolenberg , Jr. , W. R. Moron , J. T. Flannlgan , Jr. High grade platlnotypes , C. B. Alexander & Company. Sullivan's solid packed oysters always give the best satisfaction.

The dean wished to know what tbe men of the congregation had done while the women had been so busy and called upon them to subscribe twelve months' rent for tbo rector until the time was reached when a rectory could be built adjoining tbe church as a memento of the mission just closed. The dean started the fund by subscribing the first month and the balance waa soon promised. The congregation then all Joined In singing , "Praise God , From Whom All Blessings Flow , " and one of the most suc cessful missions ever held In this city came to a close.
