General Mullan, on ths suggestion of the
state executive council, to defend him In
the action brought In the United States
district court by the tnsursnce combine of
Iowa to have declared unconstitutional the
state law against making agreements re
lating to rates and commissions. Attorney
General Mullan Is now at work on the
case and will be prepared to make a vig
orous defense before Judge McPberson.
The bill of the Insurance companies In this
case Is substantially ths same as In the
case brought to defeat the Nebraska anti
compact law, which was before Judge Mc
Pberson. The Insurance companies bad the
suit brought In the name of the foreign
companies associated In the board so as
to avoid taking It through the state courts,
and it Is regarded as certain that Judge
McPberson will decide against the law.
Attorney General Mullan Is personally much
intereated In the law and will do all In
his power to hsve it upheld. There has
never been any move made to enforce tho
penalties of the law agalust the companies
associated together In this state. Former

regular racing season of 19(3 on the West

rated here this afternoon. Weather con
ditions are anything but favorable, as it
is cold and raw, and rain has been falling
at Intervals all morning. The city Is filled
with horsemen, who arrived during the
night and morning. The flood at Memphis
has prevented a number of horses being
shipped from there, but the Cinton park

Willi recede so as to permit the shipping
of candidates for the Derby, which is to
be run Thursday.
