Thus spoke Clansman A. C. Graham as ho bade a welcome to the guests last night nt the sixth annual bamjuet and ball of Clan Stewart , No. 123 , Order of Scottish Clans , In celebration of the one hundred nnd fortieth anniversary of the birthday of their native bard , "Bobbie" Burns. The banquet , which was attended by some 200 memberi of the clan and their families and friends , was held In Royal Arcanum hall , whloh was beautifully nnd elaborately decorated for the occasion with palms and potted ferns and other plants. The guests were sca'cd nt three long tables and Our- lng the serving of the banquet music waa furnished by Albln Huster's orchestra. After an elaborate menu hail been en joyed a program of addresses and music was carried out. A. WhVtelaw. chieftain of the clan , acting as toastmaster. H. J. Chamber * had been assigned the principal address of the evening , his subject being , "Memory of Burns. " He said In part : "Primarily , without undertaking to speak with learning and speaking only from the Impulse of my own heart by putting myself In his place , 1 should say the average Scotchman would love Burns much for the same reason and In the same manner as he would chcrlih the name anil memory of William Wallace. Both were deeply pa triotic , both were efficacious and effective In upholding the liberty and light of their much beloved country. The highest ambi tion of either was to do his country's serv ice. The same spirit that 'burnished the sword of Wallace Inspired the pen of Burns Scotland loved Burns because Burns loved Scotland. And It may go without saying that every true Scotchman would devoutly love the man whose poetic genius bade him sing the loves , the Joys , the rural scenes and rural pleasures of his own native tongue , and who In response to that calling , as he himself saje , turned his wild , artless notes aa she Inspired. "Viewed from a purely patriotic stand point , then , the memory of Robert Burns Inspired the loftiest panegyric and pralfce. Oh. there can be no wonder that the name of Robert Burns carries with it a halo of glory ! No wonder that with the bare men tion of hli tame every true son and daughter of Scotland Is Quickened to love ! No won der that It carries with It the loftiest praise from all nations and peoples wherever the philosophy of hla songs has been heard ! And 'as lone as life bath rorrows and as long as life hath woes , ' and as long as the human understanding can drink In from the Bonnets of his soul-swept lyre , BO long will the name of Robert Burns be remembered and cherished among all the peoples of the earth. " Dr. Macrae responded to the toast "Queen Victoria. " but Hon. John N. Baldwin , who was on the program to respond to the toast. "Our Country and Our President , " was unable to be present , having been hiid- denly called to St. Louis. C. B. Altchlson Kung "Loch Lomond" In his usual faultless manner , while C. M. Trophagen rendered "Mary of Argyle" In a way that stirred the hearts of the old Scots present. Mrs. Donald Macrae , Jr. , without whom no "gathering of the clans" la complete , played a number of Scotch airs on the piano which wcte vociferously applauded. The banjo club , consisting of Mr nnd Mrs. C. A. Atklni , Misses Kate and Ella Luster , W. Woodward and Will McPliercon , ren dered several selections which were well received. At the conclusion of the program the 'nblos were removed and the room cleared for dancing.

Taken Step * I.ooUliiHT < " Control of In view of the prevalence of measles In the city nnd that there are several cases of smallpox In neighboring towns the local health authorities have decided that the ordinances framed for the protection of the public health and for the restriction and piovcntioh of contagious diseases bo strictly enforced. The city ordinances require that all cases of contagious diseases must be at once re ported to the Board of Health , either by the attending physician or the head of the family afflicted. This rule. City Physician Lacey sn > s , Is not being carried out and blnco the epidemic of measles made Its np- pearanco In Council Bluffs there has been a large number of cases which have never been reported. Acting under Instructions from the Board of Health. City Marshal Blxby hag Isccud the following circular no tice. which will be sent to every physician In the city : Owing to the disregard by many of the or dinances governing Infectious and conta gious diseases and the fact that said dis ease n are prevalent in neighboring cities , It Is deemed essential that a general observ ance of the ordinances be had that the pos- Blblllty of a serious epidemic may bo averted and the necessity of the police authority enforcing the penalty for non-compllanco bo avoided. Section 1 of the city ordinance provides that It shall be iho duty of every physician residing or practicing within the limits of this city to give written notice to the mayor or the health officer Immediately of any case of Asiatic cholera , smallpox , diphtheria , membraneous croup , scarlet fever , scarlet rash , scarletlna , typhoid fever , typhus fever , measles or other diseases dangerous to the public health that ho may be called upon to attend professionally. And any physician who shall neglect or refuse to give ouch no tice as herein required within twenty-four hours after ho shall first visit and ascertain the character of such diseases herein named shall be fined In n sum not IPSH than $10 nor more than $25 for each and every day ho neglects such notice. In all cases where no plijslclan Is In attendance It shall IM the duty of any person having charge of or being at the head of a family or having the care or custody of any lodging rooms to give notice In like manner as required herein of phy- sMana and with like penalty for neglect or refusal. Section 7 of the ordinance provides that during the existence of any contagious or Infectious disease In any family or house hold or place In this city and until after the recovery of the sick ami the disinfec tion of the premises where such disease ehall have existed no person resldinc la such household , family or place shall be permitted to attend any public or private school nor any punli place without written purmlsslon from thu major , countersigned by the health oflleor , and no superintendent , teacher or ofllcer of any school shall permit any child or person from any such family , household or place to attend any school without a permit from the major counter signed b > the health olFR-cr , upon the rec ommendation of the attending physician , show Ing thorough disinfection of the per son , clothing and premises. And any person who shall knowingly violate any of the pro visions of thin section shall be fined not lees than $25 or Imprlsoued not less than five ilayn. Opposition to these sections Is unwise and means nothing less than the spread of In fectious and contagious diseases , bringing expense and In many cases death and mis fortune where It might be prevented.

( Special Tele- mm. ) The State Board of Control today closed Its accounts with the state Institu tions of Iowa for the first six months of Its administration. The balance sheets show a credit to thirteen state Institutions under Its charge In the sum of $92,285.01. whereas when the board took up Its work July 1 , last , there was not. only no balance to the credit of the Institutions , but there was a largo deficiency In some places , which was not offset by the few small credits at a few of the Institutions. Kver elnco the board took charge of the affairs thcto has been a steadily Increasing balance at the end of each month until last month there was a Blight falling off after the purchase of winter - tor supplies. The J92.285.01 Is found to be a credit after all the heaviest bills for the year , such a fuel and other winter supplies , have been paid and after a few bills for January sup plies have been taken out. This balance has been created by the board In the face of the fact that the per capita allowance of the hospitals for the Insane , where much the largest expense Is Incurred , was set at $2 by the legislature last winter. The January supplies will probably be nearly as heavy as those of December , hut nfter that the balance Is likely to show a steady increase through the next six months. Current n\iniHON Come Firnt. According to a majority ruling of the su preme court today DCS Moliies hag been walking In the straight way of the law , when It followed the city attorney's coun sel souio months ago. He advised that a city of the first class must pay current ex penses from the revenues of the year In which they were Incurred , to the exclusion of other valid prior Indebtedness , for which warrants have Issued and been presented for payment and endorsed as unpaid for want of funds. This ruling Is made In an opin ion written by Judge Waterman In which a case from Council Bluffs IB reversed. Chkf Justice Hobluson and Judge Granger dissent from the holding on the ground that under tbo statute all warrants must bo paid In the order of presentation regardless of the year in which they may have been drawn. The case at bar Is that of N. C. Phillip ? , who brought action to recover $6.2 ! upon a warrant drawn on the ecner.il fund of the city of Council Bluffs , of which W. B. Reed was at the tlmo treasurer. The warrant was drawn for supplies furnished the city during 1898. A mandamus was asked re quiring the treasurer to pay the claim. Thn action was dismissed by the district court of Pottawattamle county and a judgment for the coats rendered against the plaintiff on the Kround that there were outstanding warrants unpaid which bore earlier dates. The outstanding warrants were for labor and material furnUiheiV < the city , amounting to S104.2S0.04. They -vere drawn during the years 1695 , 1896 and 1897 : were presented to the treasurer , stamped unpaid and carried a floating Indebtedness. The court rules that section 668 of the Code of 1697 clearly Implies that It Is un lawful for any city of the lirst class to It&ue ny warrant or contract or appropriate any money In excess of annual locally author ized revenue , though there Is nothing to prevent It from anticipating Its revenues for the year for which such ap propriations are made or from bonding or refunding or obtaining Indebtedness. Sec tion S'lS of the Code , which provides for loans being negotiated , la construed to mean the placing of municipal corporations on cash basis and to prevent the accumu lation of floating Indebtedness , as In the case at bar. Should 1'ny Warrant * In Order. The dissenting opinion relies upon section 600 of the Code , which provides that the cities and towns ehall pay their warrants In the order or presentation and In which It Is held that there is no suggestion that they shall he registered by the year and paid from the revenues of the year in which au thorized. An explanation from the cntlro court Is attached to the opinion , stating why it was withdrawn at the last term of the court as It was. For aonie reason the council in the rase failed entirely to say 'that ' Council muffs was a special charter city until 1881 and that by chapter iv of the acts of the Twenty-second seneral assembly It would not come under any of tbo above statutes. The court states that this point was not brought to 1U notice until the last term of the court and If It Is true the question of Council Bluffs i still open for settlement.

Jan. 23. ( Special. ) The widest diversion from church precedent yet taken by any congieg.itlon of American Catholics was the outcome of a meeting held by the members of Corpus Ohtlstl In thU city last Sunday attetnoon. The mem bers of the parish are ultra-llberalists In their Ideas of church goeminent. . By the action of the meeting Punday afternoon Fattier Burke , the pu-scnt priest , Is prac tically placed upon a salary nnil turns over to the committee appointed all control of chinch nuances except pew rontnlx. The most pronounced move of all , as a precedent against eccleslastlclsin , Is the agreement that the committee Is to assume charge of the cemetery , lo sell lota and money derived from this source will be expended - ponded in beautifying the cemetery. The committee will Incorporate under the laws of the state , after which they will submit their plans to Archbishop Jotin Ilennessy of Dubuque for his permission. In case he re fuses to recognize their action they will petition the legislature of Iowa to compel the archbishop. In whose name all property rests , to deed over to the committee the property ns pr.iy.ed for. This Is the result of n strife that has ex isted between the members of the church and the church authorities. It In the final ending of a. contest that was started by the people appealing to Monsignor Martlnclll , thu papal delegate at Washington , against the recent division of the pariwh by Archbishop Ilennessy and brought to a climax by Father Patrick Burko's attempting to conduct a ba- /anr to raise funds for church purposes against the wIshcH of a. large number of the members. The bazaar has been a failure from a financial standpoint , due to a quiet boycott that was Instituted by the male members of the congregation. The meeting Sunday was called by Father Butke , who had concluded to accede to the demanilH of the committee , and turn over the sum realised from the bazaar and all funds fioni the other sourceb , except the pew rentals , which he will reserve In lieu of a salary , and promise * to no longer Interfere with the future llnanclal management of the church. Ills action In the matter of plac ing so much In the hands of his congrega tion is liable to bring down upon him a rep rimand from Archbishop Hennessy. ACCOVNT roii I > IATII or nuuiins.

Hughes for tho- murder of her husband was to depend largely on medi cal testimony. In the line of expert evi dence Dr. C. P. Smith , formerly of Chicago , was called by the- state , and when the symptoms of the death were described to him ho said they strongly resembled that of strychnine poisoning. In the cross-examination the theory of the defense was strongly brought out. They will account for the strychnine through the em balming fluid used and for his death by tetanus , or lockjaw. Anticipating this move the state long ago commenced to fortify It self and the testimony of some of the strong est medical experts available will bo of fered. The defense will attempt to establish also by strong medical testimony that the symp toms of tetanus and strychnine poisoning are almost Identical. The heart disease theory of the defense had to bo abandoned as the state took precautions to take the heart and preserve It at the time the postmortem was held. The defense Is a lltlo handicapped be cause of the testimony now offered by Prof. Halnes of Chicago and Dr. Sml'h that they made examination of the exterior of the stomach and could not find an In cision. The embalming fluid could not ha\e been absorbed Into the stomach if Prof. Halnes' testimony Is conclusive. Jesse Goude , the state's witness , was dis missed today without a flaw in his three days of testimony. ivritiGins TO sKcuitiWILSON. . County OUli'i-i-M anil Lanjrr Have M rl ContcNl for I'rlNont-r.
