Telegrsph.) According to the computa
tion made by Huperlntende nt Earber of
the Iowa anti-saloon I'Sfrue, the decision
of the supreme court In the Moon law

saloons In Iowa. The total now Is 795
and there will be 575 left In operation
If the law Is found to apply to the charter
cltlea whli-h sre not mentioned in the
Klve 3 ears ugo there were over 3.000
saloons In the stste and the reduction
has been by reason of the mulct law
snd the change in public sentiment.
All saloons existing In Iowa cities of
the first and second clas In exceas of
the one to 1.000 rstlo fixed by the Moon
law, must close Immediately. This wss

corporations are In direct violation of the
Iowa stats law, according to an opinion
handed down by Judge Lawrence De
Graff of tha equity division of the dis
trict rourt here todsy. More than 1,000
satoens In the stats will be sffected by
the ruling, If it is sustained by the su
preme court, to which the liquor Interests
will appeal It,
Judge Pa Oraff withheld his decision
until tha supreme court had rendered Its
opinion on the Moon lew, which limits
saloons to one for every thotissnd popu
lation. This law was sustained yester
sy. The case before Judge Ps Graff
was filed by the AntllSaloon forces
against fifteen saloon partnerships in
Pea Moines. The court Interprets the
Moon lay to mean that a license to sell
liquor msy be granted to one Individual
for each 1,000 Inhabitants.
By "Individual-' Judge Pe Oraff says
the Isw means one rxraon and not a cor

It was tha Intent of the law lo fasten
the responsibility of operating a saloon
upon one person and that this cannot ha
