Through a misinterpretation of the law on
the part of the town board of Java, S. D.,
that town will be without saloons for a
time. The South Dakota law prohibits
more than two saloons In towns of tinder
1.000 Inhabitants. Java has about 500 peo
ple, but the board granted licenses to three
saloons. Later the error was discovered
and the board, to get on a legal basis,
revoked all three licenses, refunding the
money advanced. Two saloon men ac
quiesced In the action of the board, but
the third. Carl Doerr. refused to close his
saloon, claiming the board had no right to
revoke the license. He was accordingly ar

By dilatory tactics It Is understood Mr.
Larson means that the members have not
been as vigilant In getting after violators
of the law as he thinks they rhould.
In authorizing the announcement of tils
resignation Mr. Larson said today that his
resignation was due to the "dilatory tac
tics" of the new members of the board.
He gave out a written statement in which
I was a candidate for member of the
board, but circumstances prevented me
from being appointed and I was elected
secretary, which place I have filled under
protest, as I did not want the office at
I the time. However, I wish to stata to the
druggists of the state that I have filled
the office to the best of my ability and
for the best interests of the majority of
our profession. I have had the courage
and conviction at all times for a square
deal to everybody as the records In the
office will show. I have at all times taken
the Initiative in suggestions to the board
for the betterment of the conditions of the
drug trade of Iowa and I find that to tuke
this stand Is apt to create friction. It Is
my o"ilnlon that some of the new members
of the board have ndonteil dilatory tac
tics and for this reason I am tendering 1.
Mr. Larson Is one of the most prominent
druggists of the state of Iowa. When he
