All Saloon Men Ifijanctloas
for lloases of III
In speaking of the Moon hill, which
limits the number of saloons in cities and
towns to one for eac?i l.Ono Inhabitants,
State Senator S.iunlers. who addressed the
meeting of the Methodist Brotherhood at
the Broadwsy churjii last evening on "The
Work of the Ijist legislature," said:
"One feature of this bill which will make
It effective as a law enforcement meas
ure. Is that providing that any saloon
keeper who vlolatea the conditions of the
mulct law, who Is convicted of such vio
lation, who may be enjoined or who vio
lates an Injunction, shall not be granted
a permit for a period tf five years. This
will tend to make the saloon men walk
the chalk mark, and makes the measure, In
my Judgment, one of tha strongest for
law and obedience of all the laws passed
during the session.
"This legislature," said the speaker, "will
be memorable In Iowa history for the
amount of remedial legislation enacted by
It. In this class are the bills defining the
duties of county attorneys and requiring
sheriffs to ferret out crime, and providing
for the expenses of such work. Another
bill, only bare mention of which was mad
by the newspapers, however, will. In my
Judgment prove a most effective measure.
This Is the law that provides that houses
of 111 repute may be enjoined. Just as sa
loons are now enjoined, for failure to ob
serve the law. The law places within the
hands of persons aggrieved by the pres
ence of such places, a remedy which can
be easily and effectively applied."
Jl'DGE TO DECIDE MULCT CASKS
Aanoaineriarat Made Salaoa Salts
Will Be Terminated.
Judge Wheeler, of the district court, an
nounced yesterday that he would hand
down this morning his decisions In the
twenty-two saloon Injunction cases brought
by the Anti-Saloon league In the name
of Joseph Reader of Oakland as plaintiff,
which had been taken under advisement by
him. In practically all of these cases the
Injunctions are sought on alleged technical
violations of the mulct law.- In some cases,
It is alleged that the defendant saloon
keeper violated the law by failing to pay
the mulct tax promptly on the first day
of January. In other cases, It is . alleged,
the saloonman was in violation of the law
when he filed a renewal merely of his
bond, and not a new one at the beginning
of fhe year.
Judge Wheeler yesterday Issued an order
directing Sheriff McCaffery to bring Mar
lon Kcdgepcth from the Fort Madlsoa
penitentiary to the county Jail In this city,
to be detained subject to the further
order of the court. County Attorney Hess,
who a few days ago. stated he would put
Hedgepeth on trial again, stated yesterday
that alnce reading the decision of the
supreme court he could not say Just what
disposition would be made of the ease.
"I was firmly convinced of Hedgepeth'a
guilt," said Mr. Hees, "and am still of
the same opinion. The case Is now back
for re-trial. Just how we shall proceed,
I cannot "say, now."
The damage ault of A. M. Lundgard
against the Omaha ft Council Bluffs Street
Railway company went to the Jury about
i o'clock last evening. A verdict for the
plaintiff In the sum of $376 was returned
t 10 o'clock. Lundgard sued for $1,000
damages for being ejected with a dog
from a car -and for $26 damages for the
death of the dog, which was run over
and killed by a car coming In the opposite
direction. The court yesterday sustained
a motion of the dofenae to eliminate the
claim for the death of the canine.

an Interview here after his address of lsst
Saturday before the Southeastern Iowa
teachers. Prof. L. H. Bailey of Cornell uni
versity, stated that resulting from the work
of the Country Life commission, of which
he was a member, a great movement for
progress is soon to be started In behalf of
the rural life of this country. Prof. Bailey
declined to state Just what the nature of
the movement was to be. but said that It was
not contemplated to ask congress to assist
In It, but It will rather be carried on by
the voluntary efforts of Interested parties.
Prof. Bailey took a broad stand in his ad
dress, which was upon the subject of "The
Country Life of Tomorrow." Reform our
rural governments, give more money to our
schoo's, shorten the hours of labor on the
farm, and make farm life such that It
shall be sufficient in Itself and not compel
country people to "retire'" to town, were
some of the things which Prof. Bailey ad
vocates as most essential.

much doubt Is expressed by those who
have watched the legislation as to any
possibility of the governor refusing to sign
the measure. The railroads are objecting
to the law Just passed, which fixes a pen
alty of $50 per day to them for disobeying
orders issued by the State Railroad com
missioners. The law was passed because
the commission pointed out how futile
were Its orders If they could not be en
forced by penalty.

law of practice with reference to criminal
cases is made by lawyers from Fort Dodge.
This new law cut down the time within
which an appeal In a criminal case csn be

ately commenced lobbying the legislature
for a bill that would give him a salary of
$3,000 per year and some high-priced as

pass and instead placed the supervision of
all the departments under State Librarian
Johnson Brlgham, providing for a histori
