t'M Mulcts, uct. is. tppeciao By
a decision of the supreme court, handed
down today, the amendment to the ped
dlers' license law Is declared to have
been Improperly drawn and hence Is of no
force and efTect and the old law Is put
In force. The old law allowed county
supervisors to Impose a license of from
$1 to $50 a year on "peddlers," giving no
definition to peddler. The amendment
adopted at the session of the leglsla
ture in 1904 attempted to change the law
so aa to Impose greater fees on peddlers ,
In the Interests of regular merchants.
It permitted a license of from $5 to !
$100 to be Imposed by supervisors and j
attempted to define "peddlers" as apply-
Ing to any "transient merchant or Itin- t
ernnt vendor selling by sample or taking
orders for present or future delivery." j
The title to the act making the amend- ;
ment designated only "peddlers." and the j
supreme court holds that a new class of I
persons cannot be brought under the
law by merely making the definition In
the body of the act, but that the new j
class must be mentioned In the title to
the act as well. It was recognized that
the old law had little effect In limiting j
the number of men who traveled about ,
the state, taking orders for mall order i
houses and the like. The new law was
Intended to do that. The decision of
the court was In the case of State against
Ed Bristow, appellant, of Plymouth
county, who traveled about taking or- :
ders from samples for the Great Western j
Tea company. In the district court the ,
state won and this Is now reversed.

late campaign for the republican nomina

by Howard Tedford of Mt. Ayr. state
