women of Crawford covmty, has cast
a gloom over the community, the
like of which has not been felt for
years. In the death of Mrs. S. E.
„Dow and Mrs. Edmund Howorth, the
community loses two of its most be
loved and highly respected and honor
ed citizens, whose long life of use

humanity and tor the fulfillment of
the Christian duties,. ended just
twelve hours after each other, and
claused the profoundest sorrow.
It is with the deepest sorrow and
regret that we are compelled to
chronicle these sad events, and ex
to the bereaved families and
fi$Mds our deepest sympathy. Many
friends from Denison attended the
dou||e funeral of these pioneers which

were held. We give below a com

Mrs. Dow was an amiable woman,
of kindly spirit, whose many friends

of a joyful resurrection, and the
blessedness of a home in Heaven.

No. 49
Arrested Under Peddlers License act
at Kiron
H. M. Chase of Portsmouth, la.,
and R. F. Crandall of St. Paul. Neb.,!
two men who have lately been going
about in the country near Kiron. JSu
ljpiting grocery orders for the Mutuu
Supply Co. of Omaha, Nebr, were ar
rested Tuesday and taken before
Justice of the Peace G. A. Norelius
for soliciting orders without a license.
The County Attorney's attention was
called to the case and on investiga
tion he found a very recent decision
of the Iowa Supreme Court, the case
of the State of Iowa vs Bristow, a
case arising in Plymouth county,
wherein it was held that the law en
acted by the Thirtieth General As
sembly was unconstitutional and void.
After discovering this recent decision
Mr. Klinker immediately ordered the
dismissal of the ease and the release -.•
of the defendants.
The defendants were arrested un
der the peddlers license act which
makes it an offense to peddle with
out a license. -This act was amend
ed by the thirtieth general assembly
to include solicitors who take orders)
from samples for present or future
delivery. On October 19, 1906 our
supreme court handed down the deci
sion in the above case of State vs
Bristow which waB a similar case to
that of the one at Kiron. It was:
held that the act as amended simply
covered peddlers such as transient
merchants and itinerant vendors sell
ing by sample or otherwise. De
fendant was held not to be a transient
merchant but was simply an agent or
salesman, a soliciting agent or com
mercial traveler who took orders for
The subject expressed in the title •'k
is simply that 6f peddlers anjji our
constitution Art. .3 Sec. 29 provides
that the subject of an act .must be
expressed in the title. Consequently
if the Thirtienth General Assembly
had passed a separate statute entitl
ed soliciting agents and .fixed a tax for
such agents, the statute would have
been good and would have covered
agentta of this class, at least that is
wh„at js set out in the opinion of the j.
recent decision.
