Men Withdrawing Names from Petl
tlon Will Be Published.
It was stated yesterday that some of the
men who had signed the new saloon gen
eral petition of consent were raising a fund
to defray the expense of publishing In the
dallv newspapers a list of those who signed
the petition and then withdrew their names
at the instance of the Antl-ffaloon league
forces. This. It Is said, they propose doing
because of the announcement made by
R. C. F. Chambers, district superintendent
of the Iowa Anti-Saloon league, that th
names of all signing the consent petltlo
would be published In the organization'
official organ, "The Dial of Progreaa.'
"Mr. Chambers saya in a published Inter
view that this announcement that the
names of those signing the saloon petltlo
of consent are to be published must not be
construed as a threat. If It is not, a threat.
then what la it 7" said a well-known busi
ness man yesterday. "I signed the petition
and I declined to withdraw my name when
called upon by a cemmHteee from the antls
I, like hundreds of others, signed the petl
tlon in good faith, and If they want to pub
llsh my name they are at liberty to do so
I am not ashamed of it being known tba
I signed the petition, far from It. We,
however, Intend to come back at the antls
by publishing all the names of the "back
sliders" who withdrew their names. They
w ill not be published in "The ' Dial
Progress," but In a daily newspaper, where
one can read them. The expense wilt not
be very great, aa I do not anticipate th
list will be a very long one."

Moses Rice Attempts to Kill A. H.
Todd and Commits Suicide.
Laborer and Teamster. Are I. aid Off
Because of Difference of Opinion
In Council Over Contract
v (From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, Ia.. June 11. (Special
Telegram.) Twenty minutes after he had
failed to kill A. H. Todd, senior partner of
the firm of Todd ft Kraft, commission
merchants, In front of the company's build
ing, Moses Rice, 27 years old, a peddler,
died In the city jail from drinking car
bolic acid. Police believe the man took th
poison before firing the shots at Mr. Todd.
Ills face and chin were' badly burned by
the acid. Rice was roughly handled by
employes of the company when they
wrested the smoking revolver from his
(rasp and a rumor was afloat this morn
ing that this treatment was contributory
to the man's death, but authorities believe
It to be without foundation. Todd will
recover from the effects of the shooting.
Street Force Redaeed.
As the result of the refusal of the coun
cil to atuhorize the department of streets
and public Improvements to complete work
whioh haa already been started between 125
and 160 laborers and teamsters went to
their homes tonight without Jobs. The
wholesale reduction of forces and subse
quent tleing up of city work was made
compulsory when Mayor Mathis and
Councllmen Hantery and Ash refused to
vote for a resolution Introduced by Coun
cilman ' MacVlcar directing him to finish
Jobs already under way. They refused be
cause the cost of the work would exceed
t-MO and had not been let to contractors
as the statute provides.

Dave Forteous, the well known Kansas
City referee, has been decided upon aa

Hog Cholera Serum Laboratory.
Dr. Paul Koto, state veterinarian, ia lay
ing hla laboratory plana, for the establish
ment of a slate laboratory near Des Moines
this auninmr for th. manufacture of hog"
cholera serum, to be distributed free of
charge to farmers throughout the state.
The law providing for the establishment of
this laboratory, passed by the Thirty-third
general assembly last winter, bvcornes ef
fective July 4. It carries with It an ap
propriation of In. OW. All this amount, how
ever, cannot be placed In a laboratory, as
(a portion will have to be retained to buy
animals with which to manufacture ihe
The serum, after It Is made, Is tested on
guinae pigs to ascertain the strength. The
operation of inoculating animals, extract
ing the blood, then extracting from It the
serum, the testing of the serum on other
animals all will go to make an Interesting
process, which will probably be Inspected
by every stockrsiaer that comes to the
capital city. As yet a location for the lab
oratory haa not been made. It will be near
the city.
Saultatlon ta Food.
"Pure food agitation is going to eventu
ally settle down to the question of sani
tation," aaid Htate Food and Dairy Com
missioner Wright, In commenting on con
ditions. "Th. pur food laws hav. done
marvels In bringing about purer food. T'.i
Huik of the department is growing smaller
all the time with reference to detecting
harmful preservatives and th. like In foods.
One of the chief developm.nta will be In In
specting foods to prevent dirt. We will
probably In the future secure more strin
gent laws along this line. 1 am sure we
will when th. people awaken to a eonsld
eiatlon of what they really are eating..

What we need Is a law covering methods
employed In bakeries, meat markets, etc.,
and the Wagons used to deliver the gools.
I hav seen deliverymen wipe the perspira
tion from their face on their coataleeves
and then load up the same arm with bread
that was to be sold and served on the
table. New York has some stringent laws
on management and operation of such
places. Iowa will have them, but the ad
vancement cannot all be made at once.
People are demanding purer and cleaner
food. They will get more stringent laws
aa they realize conditions exlxtlng."
Contingent Fees.
Des Moines lawyers are more Inclined to
a law fixing a definite percentage of Judg
ment which an attorney may charge as a
fee, rather than one permitting the trial
court to fix his fee as Is suggested by the
law reform committee of the State Bar
association, which holds Its annual state
convention In Marshalltown, beginning
June 24. Local lawyers are not Inclined to
believe the fee matter should be left to
the Judges, as It would leave opportunity
for too'much expansion and contraction ac
cording to the Judge's notions. They say
a law would be better that would positively
say that a lawyer shall receive as his fee
not more than 10 or 15 per cent of the Judg
ment returned for damages. If a law on
fees Is to be asked of the legislature, they
say, "let It be a positive one, with oppor
tunity for no favoritism, but a rule to
which all must conform."
