The Vogue of the Woman in White

a worldly-wise man the other day,
"Xonsense," was the answer, "wo- ready-to-wear accessories on exhibi-; i
man dresses for the approval of man;
to win the admiration of some par
ticular hero, or to keep him after
he admits he is won, for the creature
must be won over anew every day."
Now there is. no dress so convinc
ing In its appeal to man as the sim
ple white gown cf immaculate fresh
ness. Clad in spotless white, the
waistline belts neat and trim, all
fastenings meeting with great exacti
tude, collar faultless and gloves

ing cf plain women, every man will
tell you that even a homely woman
who is exquisitely neat and fastid

tractive than a frumpy beauty.
But leaving the woman out of the
o.uestion altogether, if you had seen
the Fifth avenue parade give way
to a dainty bit of femininity in white'
linen, white canvas shoes, white
gloves, white linen parasol, white
lace veil charmingly draped over a
white chip poke, and last, but not
least, a white linen handbag, you
would have realized two things.
First, that it wasn't a matter of per
sonality for you didn't see the face
under that scoop and parasol, but
that the impression was made solely
by raiment; and secondly, that this
very raiment is a present possibility
to you. Get the correct cut and go
ahead, you can't go wrong. Grat
ification in your success will repay
you many times for the effort. The
simplest design in white is just a3
effective as the over-trimmed "crea
tion." While so eminently attractive
white is the least expensive of all
summer wear, because it is washable.
The shops are filled with inexpensive
lingerie goods in many new weaves. ;
There are beautiful cotton crepes, ba
tistes, lawns, mulls, nets, muslins
and, linens of all weights. Trim
mings in white range from the still
popular Irish crochet, in bands, but
tons, collars and cuffs to all-linen
laces and cotton imitations, embroi
deries, cords, gimp braMs, edgings,
flcuncings, beltings, sashes, etc. The

This was decjided yesterday fol
lowing a conference between Attor
I ney General Ccsson and Attorney
Will E. Johnston; of Ida Grove.
Berger was aip-ested Saturday in
Sioux City. The ( sole charge against
him was that he -was operating a sa
loon in violation of the Moon law.
Sioux City has 3 28 saloons and is
entitled to but 47 undertbe Moon
law, if the statete contention is cor
rect. He has instituted habeas cor
pus proceedings .to secure bis release
from custody. The hearing will be
held Thursday of this week and it
will be the staTt of the test case.
Thousands of dollars of saloon
property are involved in this action.
All over the state there has been lit
igation in i the courts over the Moon
In someicities it has been held to
mean that existing licenses were to
continue in effect until the holder of
the license should give it up or lose
it through violation of the law, this
despite the fact that at the time there
may have been more than one saloon
to each 1,000 inhabitants.
The state and the anti-saloon
forces have contended that the law
required the council to cut down the
number of saloons to one to each
1,000 population, the persons secur
ing licenses last to be cut off in or-
I der until the number had been re
duced to that required under the
In all the proceedings thus far
brought in the courts over this ques
tion there is no prospect of an im
mediate appeal to the supreme court.
Iioth sides believe that the queetn
should Le settled Immediately and
once for all. Hence the attorney
general has agreed to push the test
case. By using the Sioux City case
an appeal can be perfected and pre
sented to the supreme court In Sep
tember. If the state should be successful in
the action, great loss will be occa
sioned to saloon men all over the
state. Some cities almost will go
In many municipalities city coun
cils, believing that all old licenses
were good and could be renewed
without violating the Moon law, re
issued licenses to old permit hold
ers all in one resolution. On many
instances the number of licenses thug
issued in the same resolution was in
excess of one saloon to 1,000 popu-
lation. Hence if the state wins It
is claimed that all the licenses thus !
granted will be invalid, there being j
no way to distinguish which of the.
licenses were granted first.
While the main question In the
j Sioux City test casewill be whether
cities must cut down the Dumber of i
saloons to one to each 1,000 popula
tion, it !s possible that the question
cf the constitutionality of the act
be raised Incidentally.
stated that when the orlgi-
bill passed the senate and vent
over to the house, the bouse commit
tee having it in charge tacked on
seven amendments. The records of
the house show, it is said, that all
seven of these amendments were
adopted by the house and made a
part of the act. Yet, it is claimed,
only five of these amendments were
reported back to the senate, and on
ly five were acted upon by the sen
ate, the other two losing out some
where along the line. There is a
possibility that the validity of the
act may be questioned because of j
this alleged error.
Every indication is that the Sioux I
City court room will be filled with
legal lights when the test action ia
called up. The attorney general will
be represented in person and by
County Attorney Jepson of Wood

The same question that will be
presented to the court In Sioux City j
was up In the Folk county district
court two weeks ago when the Des ;
Moines city council endeacrf-d to j
grant licenses in excess of on; to
1,000 population. Under the ore j
saloon to 1,000 population ratio the!
city was entitled to SO bar. Ihoj
council believed it had the right to j
reissue licenses to old licer.be hold-1
ers, hence it tried to grant 95. ln-j
junction proceedings were institut
ed to prevent the granting of licenses
in excess of 8fi. Judge De Graff held
that the coucil could grant but 86
licenses, h's opinion being that the
law required the cities to cut down,
no matter if there were, at the time
the law became effective, more thau
one buIowi to 1,000 inhabitants.
