STATE TAX REMAINS SAME
Iowa Legislature Added Little Here
nne by New Laws.
NUMBER OF SALOONS LIMITED
Measare Passed Provides One May
Operate for Eaeh Thousand
Popalatlon Drit Stores
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, April ll.-fSpec.ian-The
state tax levy will not be Increased as tha
result of the work of the legislature, which
has Just closed, but will remain at 3.4 mills
on the dollar for the taxable value of the
property of the state. The legislature
authorized a raise ' In the amount to be
collected by taxation from 12,250,000 a year
to $2,300,000 a year, but this slight differ
ence will easily be made up by the natural
bids having more than one saloon for each
1.000 Inhabitants of a city or town, except
that a town less than 1,000 may have one
saloon. But It Is also provided that there
hall be no arbitrary and Immediate reduc
tion In the number of saloons, but when
saloons are closed for violation of law they
hall not be reopened when this would re
sult In Increasing the number beyond one
to each 1,000 population. In this way there
Is sure to be gradual reduction In the num
ber of saloons. In Davenport, for In
stance, there la one saloon for each 300 of
population. The effect of the law will be
to make saloon keepers try harder to
avoid a clash with the law In such cities,
for If their places are once closed they
will ttiave difficulty In getting a start
again. This bill, with another which for
bids brewer ownership of saloons, It is be
lieved will have a wholesome effect on the
saloon business of the state.
A Carh on the Drnar Stores.
Tha legislature near the hour of closing
finally passed a bill to put a curb on the
whisky drug stores In Iowa, about which
there has been more complaint than about
the saloons. The bill requires that the
permit blanks which are used by druggists
to be signed by applicants for liquor,
where liquor permits are held, shall be se
cured from the county auditor, that these
shall be numbered and a record kept of
them, so that the county will have a com
plete record of the sales of liquor osten
sibly for medicinal purposos. It Is known
that the present law has been evaded and
disregarded by those drug store men who
desire to sell liquors, but under the law
It will be risky business to Ignore the law.
State Wins Big Case.
The state of Iowa won a tax case In
supreme court today which gives the treas
ury $10,000. It involved the estate of the
late George Wells In Grundy county, m
which two wills were left and no direct
heirs. A settlement was effected by which
three collateral heirs received 1160,000 to
drop a contest, and upon this the county
now holds that the state Is entitled to
the collateral Inheritance tax on all this
payment. The amount Involved Is $10,000,
but It also sets a precedent that will be
valuable to the state In other cases.

A NOBLE RECORD
Of many hundreds of thousands of cures forms a well sustained basis for
every claim put forth by the makers of Dr. PIERCE'S GOLDEN MEDICAL
DISCOVERY as a remedy for many of the troublesome affections which afflict
mankind; yet it is not extolled as a "cure-all" by any means. No extravagant
promises are flaunted before the public to arouse false hopes in the afflicted.
Your neighbors probably know of some of its many cures; ask them.
Tbroa&h strengthening and arousing the stomach, liver and
bowels Into vigorous action, digestion Is promoted, whereby
the blood Is enriched and purified, dlseascproduclng bay
terla destroyed and expelled from the body, and thus a
long list of skin, scrofulous and kindred affections are
overcome and sound, vigorous health established.
The "Discovery" contains no alcohol and no habi't-forming drugs, and has
its every ingredient printed on its wrappers. This OPEN PUBLICITY places
it in a class distinct from the ordinary secret nostrums with which it has no re
lationship! Physicians, therefore, do not hesitate to prescribe it in bad cases of
indigestion, torpid liver or biliousness and in skin and blood affections. People
of intelligence and keen discernment employ it. The "Discovery" is a pure
glyceric extract of native medicinal roots of great curative potency, and can in
no case do harm to either child or adult. The aged find it a great invigorator.
You can learn more about this time proven and popular "Discovery" from
the People's Common Sense Medical Adviser, by Dr. R. V. Pierce, a newly
revised, up-to-date edition of which is now offered, in cloth covers, post-paid,
for 31 cents in one-cent stamps, to cover cost of mailing only; or in paper cov
ers 21 cents. Address: World's Dispensary Medical Association, R.V. Pierce,

AFFAIRS AT SOUTH OMAHA
Upward Trend of Prices of Cattle
and Hogs Ii Expected.
SPRING WORK CUTS SHIPMENTS
Falling; Off Contains Nothing of
Slarnlflranee Landmark Price
of Eight Dollars for Sheep
The week ending April 10 has been re
markable at the South Omaha market by
the strong upward trend of prices, espe
cially In hogs, but marked also In cattle
and sheep. The receipts dropped off about
30 per cent from the prevloua week owing
to the rapid advance of spring work on
the farms, which Is usually a poor time
The receipts as compared to ' one year
ago In the same week show In case of hogs,
cattle and sheep gains of 20 to 89 per cent
have been made. The receipts of hogs and
cattle for the first three months of the
year show a slight decrease. In hogs
81,000 and In cattle 15,000. This decrease
has during March and April been lessened
gradually until the figures are not signi
ficant. The average price of hogs for the
week will wllh the record prices of the
last three days, be close to $6.90. The top
price for hogs paid Thursday was 17.16,
Friday It was t'.l'Vs, and Saturday It was
)7.20. Each successive day made a better
price than had been recorded at the yards
in six years.
Prices of cattle have been fair and are
about steady with the prices quoted a week
ago. 8heep rose to a top of $8.00 at one
time during the week which Is considered
a land mark price.
Firemen Keep oa Jimp,
Yesterday was a busy day for the South
Omaha firemen. Five or alx alarms were
turned In and all were due to fires, which
except for prompt action, would have been
serious. The departments were especially
alert and the men were expecting the calls
on account of the high wind. One of the
first was at the Union Pacific freight depot,
where a quantity of drugs took fire by
spontaneous combustion. During the after
noon a banana wagon at Twenty-sixth and
Q streets took fire and burned. The wagon
was run by an Industrious huckster,
who In excitedly telling of the burning of
his wagon said: "When next week so
better was than the week behind this one
for better Is, so I hopo me nothing, what?"
The policeman who heard this speech in
terpreted It to mean: "If next week is as
good as the week before last, I won't care
much for tho loss of the wagon."
A fire was discovered In a barn at Four
teenth and Jefferson streets at 6 p. ni. The
barn was ruined, but It was a small affair
and the damage was light. A fire broke
out in Syndicate park during the afternoon
and caused a run In that direction.
The fire whistle of the Omaha Packing
plant sounded the alarm at 10 lu p. m , but
it was simply a test of the fire company of
the plant, there was no fire. '
