iiutnitede the attention of Judge Cul

mi illht This latent move is the
(iMrr.illliK of n demurrer that wns
riled by the County court to the com
plaint of the J M Diillgiin eompiiiiy,
'tl hlw! It was sought to have cer
lii 11 pii'tlolis set iisldn heciillfe of
iilKl.eil defects In the budget levy
mr.ili I', the former members uf the
court It was claimed that this bud
get should hnw been lleinlied, -not
only as to the money set aside for the
MirloUH fuuilH, but ns to whut (Ills
money was to ho spent for In these
funds. This contention was overruled
by Judge Cnlklus, In the following
'As the plaintiff's counsel confin
ed their argument entirely to meet
ing the points rulseil by ilefemlcnts'
brief, no reply brief seemed neces
sary As the Court hits iilremly pnss
eil upon most of Ihe questions raised
by ilefenileiits htief. mid defeudents
appear to reply mainly upon the
point f It it t the levy was not Itemized
us required liy the budget law, It
seems iiiiiieci'Ntury to go over the en
tiro ground again. It Is the view of
this court (bill defeudents' construc
tion of the budget law Is not well
taken, It hnliig tho view of this Court
that the tot in "fully Iteml.ed " re
fers to tho segregation of the various
purposes for which the money Is to
ho spent, ami not detailed Itemiza
tion of each purpose."
Tho iiuswot' ot the complaint must
now ho filed with the court In seven
days. This will be done by the attor
neys for tho county.
It Is anticipated that tho enso will
coiuii to trial on Its merits on the.
23rd of this month. When tho J. M.
Dougan company entered tho list of
litigants, his iittnrunyH petitioned the,
court to hold In oheynnco nil other
litigation until his rase was disposed
of. Aftor going into the merits of
tho different cases, Judge Calkins
canto to tho conclusion that the dis
position of the Dougan suit would
practically settlo nil of tho questions
arising In tho other stilts, According
ly ho Istted 'such an order. It Is this
jtult ot tho Dougan company that will
como up tor iioaring on mo aani ot
this month, If present plant are not
changod, It Is go no rally admitted that
the final decree In this caso will dis
pose ot-nll the othor litigation, ns It
will settlo the legal status ot the
courthouse one way or the other.

ent business houses and get tho ord

to purchase tho hunting ut cost. In
dividuals who wish to secure thf
bunting for their homes, and have
