Wholesale Dealers in Sugar to be Li
censed Says Larimer.
While food commissioner H. G.
Larimer was in Chariton for an over
Sunday rest from his labors, he re
ceived a phone from Des Moines
announcing a new action on the part
of the federal government to con
trol sugar prices. This is no less
than to re-invoke the old war time
license system for wholesale deal
ers. This is done to shut out the
speculator and Mr. Larimer thinks
will have the efiect of lowering
prices on this commodity. The
wholesaler is allowed a profit ot fl
per sack, and the retailer a profit of
two cents per pound. Should any
retailer be found charging more the
licensed wholesalers will be instruct
ed not to sell him any more sugar.
If any wholesaler charges a higher
profit than is allowed by the govern
ment his license will be revoked and
he can obtain no more sugar from
the refiners. Tnis is a very drastic
measure, but Mr. Larimer is con
fident that it will reduce the price
to consumers.—Chariton, Herald
Would Enjoin City Officials.
The Adams Theatres Co., operat
ing a string of theatres in Iowa, one
of which is the Lincoln, at Chariton,
are through their attorneys, Fergu
son, Barnes & Ferguson, of Shenan
doah, seeking to enjoin the city of
ficials of Chariton from enforcing
the ordinance recently passed against
Sunday amusements. The conten
tion taken bv the attorneys for the
theatre company is that the ordin
ance is contrary to federal and state
law, and unconstitutional. The com
pany, which is organized under the
laws of Delaware, claims to be a
"foreign" corporation, and the argu
ment will be advanced, it is believed,
that the ordinance is unconstitu
Mayor G. B. VanArsdale has been
notified to appear in Des Moines on
May 7, when the attorneys will ask
Judge Wade to grant a temporary
injunction restraining the city of
ficials from interfering with the
operation of the picture house here
on Sundays.
The proceedings started by tho
Shenandoah attorneys are unique it
is said, because this is the iirst
time the aid of the federal govern
ment has been sought to restrain a
community from enforcing a law
prohibiting Sunday amusements.
The ordinance in Question was
passed by the city council about four
weeks ago, and later action
taken to make the ordinance bind
ing by a secon,d passage in order to
avoid any technical error that might
bee laimed in the former ordinance.

Pioneer Business Man Takes liest.
Mr. Clias. Blair severed his con
nection with the Supply Store Satur
day night, the store naving passed
into the hands of five jyoung men
from Harrison county, Iowa, who
will continue to operate the business
in the old stand. Mr. Blair is a
veteran in the grocery world, hav
ing practically spent his life in this
business. With one exception, that
of Mr. B. D. Fleet, Mr. Blair has been
numbered with the business men of
Lamoni longer than any other man
Charlie has always taken a great
interest in the affairs of the town
and community being willing at
times to spend his time ami money
in those enterprises that he though
were for the best interest of the
community in general. He was one
of the first and most enthusiastic
good roads workers in this section
and his place will be hard to fill in
this and similar connections.
We are not informed as to Mr.
Blair's future but he will be kindly
remembered by the business men of
Lamoni as a staunch supporter of
his' town- and community in e^ery
good work.' He is entitled to a well
earned rest which was apparently
forced upon him as he was taken
severely ill Monday and was taken
Monday night to the Sanitarium at
Independence, Missouri, where it is
hoped that he will soon be restored
to his usual' health. He was ac
companied by Dr. Peterson. His
brother, G. W. and A. J. Yarrington
going as far as Chariton where he
was placed in a sleeper on the Rock
Island for Kansas City.
At the time of our going to press
word was received that Mr. Blair
condition was critical and that an
immediate operation necessary.

Washington, May 2—Warning of
the probability of an actual shortage
of gasoline before the end of next
summer, as a result of the dispro
portionate increase in gasoline pro
duction and the number of automo
biles in use, was given in a state
ment issued today, by the bureau
of mines.
While an increase in stocks at the
end of February of more tnan 100,
000,000 gallons or 20 per cent as
compared with a year ago, shows
that the situation is not yet acute,
it is proibable, the statement said,
that before the "summer season is
over it will become tight if indeed
it does not become short."
Heavy drafts were made in March
on the reserve stocks of,crude pe
troleum notwithstanding a 20 per
cent increase today by the United
Stated geological survey. Tlie total
increase-in output of United States
in March as compared with Marcu,
1919, was six million barrels, but
the increased consumption made
necessary the importation of 6,500,
000 barrels from Mexico. An addi
