S People's Pulpit m&mmmmzmm Editor Courier: I note by the Courier of Thursday evening of Jan. 7, that the validity of my acts as notary was attacked in the trial in progress before Police Judge Kirby, wherein an attempt is matte to determine the. sufficiency or insuf ficiency of the petition to closo the saloons. There is about, as much merit, in that objection as there is in hundreds ol' others made during the •progress of that "exceedingly har monious" trial o£ the "State of Iowa vs. Hallgren" in .police court, where there is in evidence neither defen dant nor prosecuting witnesses. The impression made upon my mind in reading the objections to the peti tion is that the attorneys are not sincere iu their contentions or they would have long since, advised their clients to open the -doors of their saloons for business. I have been a resident of the United States twenty-seven years and as a resident of the state of Iowa am deep ly interested in all matters of reform and the proper enforcement of out laws as every one should be. I have complied with the provisions of the statute in obtaining my notarial commission which was issued and signed by the governor of the state of Iowa and secretary of state, have filed my bond, taken the oath and my commission is recorded in the clerk's office. Under our law my acts are valid and birring until my com mission expires or is revoked by the governor or removal from the county. They cannot be collaterally attacked and if the brewers and distillers want to test my authority let them do it in a direct proceeding and I will pay my own expense and not ask the state to try dozens of immaterial issues at the expense of the tax payers. I am writing this article not for the purpose of antagonizing anyone but simply to let the public know that the contention of the liqour interests is absolutely unfounded so far as my acts as a notary are concerned.
