BALLOT STOPS LITIGATION
Dyeraville Commercial: The
Shankland bill to be introduced in tha
next legislature, is the topic of much
discussion throughout the state of
Iowa. The bill is one to put the ques
tion of saloon license to a vote of tha
people under the Australian ballat
system, 4aing away with what ia
termed the petition of consent, and
giving every voter secrecy at tha
polls. The law is aimed to do away
with extensive court litigation, which
has existed under the present system
ir. which proper signatures of tha
voters has been the contention.

that attend the present petition meth

Shankland bill is that it is fair to
both sides—it provides for the rule oi
