DE3 MOINES, Sept. E.-ISpecial.) The
decision of the Iowa supreme court ren
dered the past week in a newspaper libel
suit has caused surprise and chagrin among
tha newananer men who have read and
digested the document, and It Is expected
that as a result of this announcement of
the taw In Iowa there will be a strong
movement started to effect reform of the
Iowa laws. Newspaper men do not hesitate
to state that if the court haa rightly In
terpreted and applied the laws of Iowa In
reference to damages for libel there Is but
little chance of a newspaper publisher es
caplng wherever lawyera can be found to
take up Eults and that it la the most un
safe business In the state. The decision
virtually places on the publisher all re
rponslblllty for proof and declares that
his malice !n publishing any objectionable
article Is to be presumed, also the fact
of damages. Any publication that will tend
to make anybody mad Is subject to an
action for libel. The decision la the most
sweeping ever rendered by a court, and
It waa neeesiary to reverse a careful dis
trict court, where the whole proceedlng3
had at first been thrown out. The increas
ing number of libel and damage suits
ngninst newspapers In the state haa
aroused the newspaper publishers to the
fact that the law la entirely antiquated
and not adapted to present conditions.
Connly Stewards to Meet.
A novel convention is to be held this

Wants More Yard Room.
The state railroad commissioners have
made a date to be In Ottumwa next Tues
day to consider the application of the Mil
waukee Railroad company for permission
to condemn certain ground In that city
for yards and additional depo, ground. The
company was unable to secure at the time
of the building of the cut-off all the ground
wanted. Now it Is proposed .that condem
nation proceedings be resorted to and If
successful the company will make large
Improvements. The board has alRO to go to
Traer to consider an application to have
an overhead highway crossing built over
the railroad tracks.
Oerraau Editors Meet,
The German newspaper editors of Iowa,
Nebraska and South Dakota are holding
their convention In Muscatine. The as'
aoclatlon was organized here four years ago
largely through the effort of Colonel Jo
seph Elboeck, the veteran editor of thla
city, who la in attendance and delivered
the address as president. There are about
twenty-five of these editors In tha three
Instmetlona to Veterinarians.
Governor Cummins la sending out to the
county officials In every part of the state
a circular letter In which la given a pro
vision of the law In relation to making uae
of the services of the Ftate veterinarian or
his assistants not generally understood. It
la explained that the only way In which
the services of a veterinarian may be se
cured Is to have the majority of the county
board or a township board or city council
petition the governor to send a veterinarian,
and when thla is done the state will pay
the expense. There have been many calls
of this character recently and tha law haa
not been strictly observed.
