^JUNCTION CASE IN DES MOINES
uestion Hinges Upon Intent of the
Lawmakers and the-Langaage Used
In the Clark Lawi—Several Ottumwa
Saloons May be Closed.
The success or failure of an injunc
tion suit just begun In the Des Moines
ourt against the owners of property
hsed for a saloon and Lorenz Hill, the
proprietor of the saloon, will affect
hose interested In the liquor business
tiroughout the state and may result in
.closing or the several Ottumwa
Jjaloons. The case which is being
nled as a test case is an injunction
Against Lorenz .1111, tenant, and the
of the building at the northeast
brner of West Court and Third aven
|e In Des Moines.
The injunction if decided adversely
the defendants will, it is stated, re-
^ult In the, closing of nearly one-half
the saloons in Des Moines and a
large proportion of the saloons of the
State. The dispatch telling of the case
"The Clarke law, under which sa
ons are operating, a» originally en
fceted, contained a provision to the ef
feet the tenant must obtain the con
sent of thte property owners within fif-.
ty feat of tne premises to be occupied
with a liquor business. In test suits
started it was claimed that the word
premises meant the entire property or
building in which the saloon was situ
ated. The supreme court held that the
word meant only the room actually
occupied for saloon purposes.
"When the conunissioneds revised
the code in 1897, they changed the
word premises in this section of the
liquor law to "property."
"In the injunction suit now ponding It is
claimed lliut tin* consciit must lie obtained
from all resident owners within tift.v feet
of tiie lmlld,Inn In which this saloon is lo
cated, aud not the particular room It occu
pies. 'l'lie liuihlih£ Is so located that it

•'Tile defense is relying oil the Intent of
the legislature when It passed upon the
rovlsUni, aud not upon the literal meaning
of the word property. It Is their conten
tion that it was not the intent of the leg
islature to eh'ancre the limits of the consent
requirement ns fixed in the original enact
ment. Jt is up to the courts to decide
what tlte iiitent was and whether tlic rule
of legislative intent or the rule of literal

REPUBLICANS ALL OVER IOWA
ARE FULL OF INTEREST AND
County Chairmen Are Working Hard
and All the Party Leaders are To
gether in Their Efforts to Make a
Good Showing This Year.
Des Moines, Sept. 9.—(Special.)—In
spite of the fact that this is supposed
to be an off year in politics, the re
ports which have been received at re
publican headquarters from the differ
ent counties indicate that the state is
better organized for the campaign
than It was at this time last year.
About eight of the counties have al
ready organized their committees for
the coming campaign, and several
more will be organized before the end
of this week. By the middle of Sep
tember all but about a' dozen of the
republican county committees will be
organized and ready for work. Last
year a much larger number of coun
ties were unorganized at this time
than this year. This indicates that
the campaign will not lag on account
of the slowness of the counties in or
ganizing. Chairman Spence Is well
pleased at the interest that has been
manifested so far and lie expects an
County Chairmen Active.
County chairmen seem to to more
interested than usual this year. The
letters that have been received at
headquarters are full of assurances of
a good majority for the ticket in the
republican counties. Greater interest
seems to prevail In the counties sup
posed to be democratic, than ever be
fore. The republicans in Dubuque
county are extremely hopeful of equal
ing, if not surpassing, their record of
two years ago, when they came very
nearly carrying the county for Govern
or Cummins. The republican commit
tee In Lee county is ready for work,
and they are going to make a determin
ed etfort to give the state ticket a good
vote and elect a part of the republican
county ticket. Similar rfeports have
been received from the chairmen of
other so-called'democratic counties.
Manager Dawson, of the speakers'
bureau/has arrived in Des Moines an
is busily engaged In organizing the
Work of hfs department. He expects a
good speaking campaign this year and
a special effort will be made to secure
some well known speakers from other
states. Several of the Iowa congress
men are going to make speeches in
other states and the state committee
will endeavor to secure some speakers
Governor's First Meeting.
Governor Cummins will open the
campaign in Des Moines Sept. 26, ac
cording to the present arrangements.
This ivill undoubtedly be one of the
largest political meetings ever held In
Des Moines and it is expected that re
publicans will be in attendance from
all over the state. The governor will
devote all of his time to the campaign
from September 26 on, but he does
not expect to deliver a speech every
day for the first'week or two.
Chairman Spence expects to ar
range the dates for at least a part of
the district conferences this week.
Probably none of the conferences will
be held until next week, however, but
this has not been definitely determin
ed as yet. He desires to arrange mat
ters so that the congressmen, leading
republicans, and all of the county
chairman in each district can be pres

Des Moines, Sept. 5.—Chairman
Spence of the republican com

his home at Mount Ayr, yesterday
and from now on will remain con
tinuously at his rooms in the Obser
vatory building. He says the prelim
inary work of the campaign is mov

already at hand which indicates the
voters are being aroused and that by
the opening of the speaking campaign
the Interest will be intense. The
county chairmen are responding
promptly to the requests of the com
mittee for information needed In car

the organization of the party in the
different counties and precincts will
be perfected in good shape. With the
arrival of Mr. Dawson of the speak

Befell Near Keatli Hauy Times—Made
Prisoner at Battle of Cedar Creek.
While operating a buzz saw in a
malleable iron foundry, at Troy, Henry
Simons was suddenly stricken wittL
vertigo and fell almost upon the swift
ly revolving saw. But the same good
fortune that carried him uawounded
through four years of active service
during the Civil war again preserved
his life. The sudden Illness which
brought him so near an awful death
was the direct result of his war experi
ence, as Mr. Simons staed to a report
er who called at his comfortable home
at No. 4 Linden avenue, Troy, N. Y.
"Ever since the campaign of New Or
leans in 1861," he said, "I have been
afflicted with malaria and frequent at
tacks of acute gastritis, brought on by
the constant exposure and the malari
al atmosphere of the bayou country.
At times I was subject to attacks of
vertigo and it was a seizure of this
kind that so nearly ended my life.
"For over thirty years I employed
the best physicians but they were un
able to give me any permanent relief.
I was bilious and suffered from palpi
tation of the heart, belching of wind
and acute pain in the small of my
back. I was in a weakened condition
generally and my appetite was fickle.
"One day I saw Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for Pale People mentioned In a
local newspaper and decided to try
them. Before I had finished the first
box I noticed that my appetite had im
proved and that I was much stronger.
That also marked the end of the at
tacks of extreme vertigo. I kept on
taking the pills and my recovery from
that time was gradual but steady. I
have recommended Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills to a number of people and I am
glad to endorse the remedy that has
done so much for me."
Mr. Simons is a member of the
Grand Army of the Republic and serv
ed in Company H, Twelfth Connecti
cut Volunteer infantry. He was one of
1,300 prisoners taken by the Confeder
ates at the battle of Cedar Creek dur
ing the campaign in the Shenandoah
valley, made famous by Sheridan's
ride. He was taken to Llbby prison
where he was confined for months be
fore being exchanged.
Hundreds of Civil war veterans,both
Union and Confederate, whose health
was broken by hardships in the army
as well as hundreds of others run' down
by overwork, worry or excesses of
some sort, owe their lives and happi
ness to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
Pale People. Acting directly on the
blood and nerves these pills have cur
ed many stubborn cases of nervous
ness, partial paralysis, locomotor atax
ia, St. Vitus' dance, rheumatism, scia
tica and all forms of weakness, wheth
er In male or female. If you are' sick
you owe It to yourself to give them a
frlal. But remember that you cannot
try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills by taking
"something else" which may be offer
ed as a substitute. Be sure that every
box you bily bears the full name. Sold

In the percentage of the fruit crop

This statement was given out re
cently from the office of the State
Few Apples to Ship,
"Iowa will have fewer apples to
ship out of the state than usual," said
Secretary Wesley Greene. "The com
mercial orchards, which are located in
the southwestern part of the state,
were damaged by the late frost of the
latter part of April, and their output
was greatly diminished. The apples
from the farm orchards over the state
will yield sufficient to supply the local
demand, but tliere will be few left to
"It is probable that winter apples
will be higher in price than last year,
when Iowa yielded a 65 por cent crop,
and when tne quality of the fruit was
unusually good. This year, blight has
caused some damage, and there is con
siderable scab on the fruit, lut for all
that there Is every Indication that
there will be enough to satisfy all local
demands. Rawle's Genet, a winter
apple raised mostly in the southern
part of the state, will have an unusual

Its late blooming, which kept it from
being damaged by frost."

Burlington Hawk-Eye Hints That the

Rumors emanating from Muscatine
are to the effect that a carnival is to
be conducted in conjunction with the
encampment of the Fifty-fourth regi
ment I. N. G., to be held soon. This
came out from Muscatine yesterday
and this morning the Burlington
Hawk-Eye in commenting on the dual
attraction hinted that the Scott coun
ty metropolis has never held a street
fair or an encampment otherwise its
citizens would sidestep such a rough
and tumble catch-as-catch-can combin

As Seen in Burlington.
"Muscatine got the camp of the Fifty
fourth. In some way some entertain
ment had to be provided for the people
visiting the camp and for the boys in
cidentally the funds had to be raised
that had been pledged for the camp.
Muscatine has solved the problem.
Mayhap the Muscatine solution will
prove a satisfactory one and mayhap
that it will prove an irrefutable argu

old place. Yesterday's News-Tribune

"'Should the present plans mature
encampment week in this city promises
to be a lively one, for in addition to
having 600 rollicking soldier boys as
guests there is a movement on foot to
have a street carnival at the same
time. J. A. Darnaby, representing the
Bucklin-Darnaby Carnival company,
was in the city yesterday looking over
the situation and asking the privilege
of giving a street carnival during the
week of the encampment. This com
pany is one which showed at Burling
ton during the season and is said to
be a very excellent aggregation. Mr.
Darnaby Interviewed several of the al
derm en and' a number of business men
of the city. It Is understood that he
met with a great deal of encourage
ment and that the chances are that the
carnival will be permitted to be held
here. Lieutenant-Colonel Bishop,
when seen, by a Mews-Tribune reporter
yesterday, stated that he was in favor
of the carnival. The soldiers have a
hard life at camp each day, with end
less drill and other miltiary require
ments and to attend a carnival in the
evening would be a relaxation from the
rigid ruleB of discipline. 'Of course,'

get a good, clean carnival for encamp- :^v'

would be insured, for while we may
have a go6d attendance at all the mili

nothing to entertain those who will be

this feature should hare attention.'
