Sometime ago Mrs. Davis of the latter place, was thrown from a buggy inside the city limits and had her leg broken. She was cared for by the oity authorities, being a poor woman, to the extent of $250, and the bill charged to Superior.

The Commercial says : "The city treasurer has withheld the amount, and the attornoy will apply to tbo supreme oourt for a mandamus to cotnpel the supervisor to spread the tax upon the roll, which, i when collected will be paid to the treasurer ! aud creditod to tho city, for the city will have to pay it and look to Superior for its reniedy. " Tho point at issue is: lst, whether Mrs. Davis was a pauper, and 2d, wheiher each muniüipality or town ahall be liable for its own poor wherever DJured in the county."
