Sprinsfield. III.. April 14. La Salle
county's deferred local option election ,
stopped premptoriiy lat Tuesday
by a writ of supersedeas Rranted on
application of the wets by Justice
Charles C. Craig promises to assume
The record of the La Salle case was
fled In the supreme court yesterday.
Reliable Information Is that no official
notice of his action will be taken by j
Justice Craift"s colleagues, but that It
Ik a safe bet that the latest addition
to the bench will grant no more sim
ilar writs without at least having con
sulted the rules of practice of the
court of which lie is a member.
The anti-saloon leagues are reported
to be much excited because of the
estoppage of the La Salle election and
are said to be prepared to make a fight
before the full bench to have the Craig
supersedeas writ set aside. The drys
admit that the proposed battle is with
out effect, inasmuch as the La Salle
election was knocked out and It is too
late to get actual results through a re
versa! of Justice Craig's order. They
do want a disavowal of the precedent
which was established and hope to
make it impossible for a local option
election to be prevented by any sim
ilar action in the future.
The La Salle case originally was in
the hands of Lee O'Xeil Browne, who,
is attorney for the La Salle saloon in
terests, sought to invalidate the dry
petition, lie failed in this.
The supersedeas writ was sought
from Justice Craig at Galesburg. He
granted the writ according to a claim
made here today, at 4 o'clock on the
afternoon of the election. In the
meantime the town clerk of La Salle

Brigadier General William C Gorsas.
Brig. Gen. William C. Gorgas is
here shown at his desk in the war de
partment at Washington, where he is
assuming his new duties as surgeon
general of the army. He took charge
of his new office only a few days ago
and has expressed himself as in sympa

of liquor in the navy and said he
thought such an order would do much
good in the army.

of mandamus granted by the City
court of Spring Valley having concur
rent jurisdiction with the circuit
court of La Salle county.
What will happen to the town clerk
of La Salle is to be determined later.
No Light on Suffrage Decision.
Under ordinary circumstances the
Craig writ would have indicated, in a
way, that the supreme court in its
forthcoming opinion on the woman
suffrage act's constitutionality was
'prepared to hand down an opinion,
holding that women do not possess
the right to vote in local option elec
tions, although possessing the right to
vote for statutory officers.
This would be in line with the con
tention of the attorneys who fought
the constitutionality of the suffrage
act, who argued orally that the main
question could be divided.
The opinion now seems to be pretty
general that the result will be to hold
the act constitutional. Justice Craig's
writ, therefore, would not be at all in
dicative of the feeling of the court
and would have operated simply as
stopping the particular election in La
Salle, which forms a formidable sec
tion of the supreme court district from
which he was elected at the special
election last fall.
The supreme court probably will ad
journ for the April term some time
afer Wednesday of next week, binding
down its opinion on the suffrage act
Thursday or Friday of next week.

Washington, P. C. April 14. Three
measures, proposed as eure3 for near
ly all the ills of t'.ie body politic, were
Introduced in the senate yesterday by
Senator Lewis of Illinois.
In one of the bit's Mr. Lewis pro
poses the acquisition of all interstate
railroads by the government. He would
hare the government tissue bonds to
cover the purchase price, lease the
roads to private capital. whlc'J would
be guaranteed a profit of not less than
5 per cent, and apply the excess earn

Another measure proposes the crea
tion of a commission of 21 members
which (would supplant the present in
terstate commerce commission and the
federal reserve board and perform the
functions of the trade commission con
templated in pending trust legislation.
One division of seven members would

eminent build 100 merchant vessels

"These bit's," Senator Lewis said,
"represent the trinity of my labors in
the senate, and to their passage I in
tend to devote my best endeavors. The
enactment of such legislation would
solve permanently the problems of
transportation rates, prices and wages,
and the control of business by the fed

up a merchant marine, supply battle
