Cullman Mustn't Pay.

Montgomery Ala., april 16--(Special)--Because of a mistake as to the venue of the trial, Cullman county must not as yet pay half of the costs involved in the construction of a steel bridge spanning the Mulberry river between the counties of Cullman and Blount. By the ruling of the Blount circuit court, the expenditure, was ordered and appeal taken. While the Mulberry river was altogether in Blount county the steel bridge was built. By an act the legislature however changed the boundaries of the counties so that the bridge reached into both. Legislative provision also was that Cullman county should bear half of the expense of construction, $8,370. Chief Justice Dowell handed down the reversing decision.
