There Is a question whether tha Phoenix
Bar company, which operates the saloon
at 545 Broadway, will be permitted to con
tinue in business at this location, even if
it filca an abatement bond. This is one
of the saloons against which Judge
Wheeler issued an Injunction Tuesday. It
is atated that the Anti-Saloon league In
tends taking advantage of the law which
prohibits the existence of a saloon within
a certain distance of a church, school

a statement of the situation and urged tha
governor not to sign the bill, since. In his
view. It would not become a law even f

The controversy is as to the record of
the bill as made in the haste and hurry
of -the Inst day, Mr. Blrdsall contending
that according to the record the bill which
passed the house did not conform exactly
to the bill which passed the senate. The
attorney genera) Informally holds that ths
discrepancy, which is apparent, relates to
nonessentials and that It Is not sufficient
to warrant the courts In nullifying the law.
No attack was made upon tha wisdom of
the law. It Is a question which has not
before been raised as to any Iowa law or
Will Bar More Land.
The state of Iowa owno over 7,ono acres
at the various stnte Institutions and s large
part of this In farmed In accordance with
the very best methods known to the farm
era of the state, but the legislature recently
gave the Board of Control $50,000 with
v hlch to buy more land. Ths board had
asked for $64,000 with which to buy a farm
for an epileptic colony, but this was not
given, and It was thought possible that
the board might use a part of the SSO.MO
for that purpose.' But the board stated to
a committee of the legislature that as
n stter of fact the Intention Is to buy a
tract of about 300 acres at the state prison
al Fort Madison, smaller tracts at Glen
wood and Cherokeo and probably not use
all of the appropriation. No effort will be
made at this time to establish for Iowa an
epileptic colony, though unless this la done
the state hospitals will have to be enlarged
In a few years.
Attack State Parole Law.
The state parole and Indeterminate sent

court In a case from Winneshiek ccunty,
wherein a oonvlct seeks his liberty on the
ground that the iaw Is unconstitutional.
The matter has been srgued to the courts.
The claim Is broadly made that Inasmuch
as the sole power of pardon Is vested In
the governor the advisory power which Is
given to the new board In relation to
prison sentencea la not warranted. As a
matter of fact, four of the judges' on the
bench In Iowa have refused to obey ths

the rioting which occurred at Velarde na.
the big coal mining camp In the state of

than at first reported, thirty-two men be-

controlled by American capital.
The leaders of the mob, which was well
organized, avoided attacking Americans or

The Knock-out Blow
The blow which knocked out Corbett was a revelation to the prize fighters.
From the earliest days of the ring the knock-out blow was aimed for tne jaw,
the temple or the jugular vein. Stomach punches were thrown in to worry
and w :ary the fighter, but if a scientific man had told one of tne old fighters
that the most vulnerable spot was the region of the stomach, he'd have
laughed ot him for an ignoramus. Dr. Pierce is bringing home to the pub
lic a parallel fact; that the stomach is the most vulnerable organ out or the
Erize ring as well as in it. We protect our heads, throats, feet and lungs,
ut to the stomach we are utterly indifferent, until disease finds the solar
plexus and knocks us out.
