Judge Munger yesterday handed down
Ma opinion In the can of the Kloux City
Bridge Company BRaln.t School District
No. 11 of Dakota county, Nebraska, whlcti
gives Judgment for the plaintiff.
The case vai argued before the t'nited
fltates circuit court about two weeka ago.
The complalrnnts nought to enjoin the col
lection of certnln taxes levied by the achool
district on the went half of the Bloux City

City, la., the west end of the bridge being

Attempted to enforce a collection of a tax
on the west half of the bridge as Its pre
sumed right to assess all property In the
The action of the complainant Is based
en the proposition that none of the bridge
Is embraced In the school district, and Is
rot subject to taxation In behalf of the
The case Is submitted on an agreement
between the parties that the bridge proper
is 1,614 feet long from the east to the west
end, excluding approaches, and that from
the west end of the bridge to the fourth
pier Is a distance of 400 feet, and that Uie
west half of the bridge has been assessed
and taxes levied thereon for school dis
trict purposes since 14.
Declares Taxea Invalid.
In his decision Judge Munger says: "Ap
plying the rule of law as above announced,
the court finds that the dividing line be
tween the states of Iowa and Nebraska at
the point where the bridge crosses the
river Is at the fourth pier, 400 feet easterly
from the west end of the bridge. It ap
pears from the facts that the school dis
trict has assessed the entire west half of
the bridge, or 807 feel, 407 tect uf the bridge
so assessed being clearly, as shown by the
facts, outside of said school district. The
assessment of the bridge and approach was
made a an entirety, hence, In conformity
with a previous decision of the supreme
court of Nebraskat there is no method by
which the portion of the bridge within and
without the taxing district can be sepa
rated and the tax must be declared as In
valid. The whole must therefore be de
clared Illegal, and It follows that the com
plainant bridge company Is entitled to a
decree perpetually enjoining the enforce
ment and collection of the tax com
The decision does not bar the school dis
trict, however, from beginning another ac
tion to levy and collect taxes on that por
tion of the bridge which may be justly con
sidered within the taxing jurisdiction of

Of Without Delay aaH Will

Theodora Roosevelt Is an astute as well ss
popular leader. lie could see without dif
ficulty and without his ever-present
glbsses that at a regular session of con
gress might talk till mid-summer over the
Cuban reciprocity treaty. lie called an
extra session to force prompt action and
cut off the gnb fest which the opposition
had planned. The house, under a cloture
rule, will approve the treaty by the 10th
of November, at farthest. The senate will
follow by the close of the extra session.
BANKERS RESERVE LIFE
commends the policy of the president In
securing this early action upon the treaty.
Politicians seeking partisan advantage and
eager to Impress admiring constituents
would undoubtedly have seized the oppor
tunity for airing their views. Not only
so, but they would be engaged also In a
great political fencing match, which might
develop great forensic ability, but could
not benefit the country at large. Hence
B. II. nOBISOX, PRESIDENT,
has Instructed the field force of the Bank
ers Reserve Life Company to devote them
selves to life Insurance and eschew poll
tics. The people of the eight western
states open to this aggressive young level
premium company are more deeply Inter
ested In building up high grade western
financial Institutions than In developing
sugar plantations In the West Indies.
With up-to-date, liberal policies, the Bank
ers Reserve Life Is leading every western
company In every feature making: growth
In a life company.

to hold an Investigation on his own ac

driven by an unknown man."
The police are still searching for the
'unknown" driver, but entertain little hope
of ascertaining his Identity. Witnesses at
the Inquest could not describe the driver
and what little evidence was adduced in the
connection was vague and conflicting.

CHICAGO, Oct. 6. Efforts to hold up a

marksmanship of one of the bandits.
Fireman Louis Ernest was shot, one bul

the scene of the attack. Detectives of the
railroad and the police are working on the

It is admitted by the railway officials
that the bullets must have 'been fired by
one or more persons who were riding on

The life of the fireman, who was seriously
wounded, was saved by his watch, which
deflected one of the bullets.
