MILACA, Minn., Nov. 26.-Can a bank retain funds belonging to a municipality in spite of an order from the council? The case will be taken to the supreme court to decide in an appeal in the following case:

"Milaca has something over seven thousand dollars in one of the banks of that town. It appears that the village council designated a depository for the fund and that the treasurer refused to comply with the demand of the recorder to transfer the half designated to the other bank, the action of the council being for the purpose of dividing up the fund with the two banks of that place. Upon the refusal of the bank holding the whole of the fund to give up half, the council then passed a resolution designing the other bank for the entire amount, and upon refusal to give it up, brought mandamus. Judge Qvale signed the order at the term of court and the matter was argued before Judge Baxter. Briefs were submitted. However Judge Baxter mad [sic.] decide, the case will go to the supreme court.
