CARLISLE ENTERS THE CONTEST TheSncnkcr of the House Decides to Ilccoino n Candidate AiraliistSena tor IJcck . rrny mid Nnvy IJu- rcnu Consolidation" . The President \Vnnti It Discussed. WAsniNoro.v , Jan. V. [ Special to the JKI.J } : When the legislative , executive niul judicial appropriation bill comes tip for con sideration In the lionso , tlio probibilltles nro tint there will a lively discussion on the proposition to Increase the salailcs of the civil service commissioners , ns suggested by the president In his last ( iiinnal message to congress. 1 nm told that the president would llico to ace this entire question full } debated , and that was Ills principal icason foi lecom- mending additional compensation for the members of the coirlnlsalon. A gentleman whoso rotations with the president are qulto filendly. and \\ho accepted n responsible ap pointment from him cnrly In the present ad ministration , agrees with tills view of the situation. 1 met him nt tlm white house fiOMM.it dasngo , and In the course of con- \crsatlonhehaidtho president had several times remonstrated against llio personal at tacks made upon him because ho lias en deavored to carry out the civil service law as he found It when ho cntctod the executive chair. Ho sas the piesldont .has giown \veary of shnuldctlnc : the abnso frequently heaped upon him by politicians who Ime been dis appointed In place hunting. The president takes the ground that congress enacted the civil service ) law and there is nothing loft for him to do but to execute It. It the con- ircss ; Is tired of the obnoxious statute It can bo repealed and when the proposition to In crease the commissioner's salary comes up , they will lu\o tlio Issue squarely before them , and It remains to bo seen what action \\II1 botaUen. The probabilities are that the anti-civil er\ Ice ( action In congress Is not large enough to accomplish the abolition of the law on tills subject. Senator Call , of Florida , is not a Htm be liever in the civil service doctrine and ho takes no paitlcular pains to conceal Ids views on tills question. Ho has secured several ap pointments under tlio picscnt admlnlstia- tlon , but his circle o [ political fi lends Is so largo that he would iiko lohavoBotno moro. lie has a devoted filcnd whom ho promised to assist in seeming an appointment in ono ot the unimportant gi. < dcs of tlio publicscivice. Thosonatoi thereupon called upon an olllcial having the power or apnolntmcnt , whose or iginal selection the senator had strongly timed. The latter laid the claim ot the needy friend before the olliclal and added that any courtesv shown In this case would be es teemed a personal f.tvnr. Tlio olliclal Shrugged Ids shouldcis tried to look wKo and Informed the bcnalor that no availco e.\Isted. The senatoi rcmaiked that theio wore a number of lepubllcans who might be removed to piovldo a small salatlcd position foi his friend liom Tlorida. The olllcial said such au act was out of the question and de clined to make any move In the matter until u vacancy CMcuried. The senator then lost Ids temper and told tlio olliclal In viiy plain language what lie thought of Him , ai.d added that a gieat many demociats acted , nftei they secured an appointment , as though no ono else had an ] ilirht to iccognition after tlioy were provided for. 'Ihero aio many Mich officials around Wellington , wlio shouted their loudest to liave republi cans turned out to maKe room for them , and when requested to do likewise toi a ic-llow democrat they say , "We. cawnt do it , jou Know.

A ( teed Imvv. DKS Moixi.o. la. , Jan. U. fSpcdnl to tlio llr.it. ] Although the now inedleal piaetlc * law has been In opeiatlon but a low dajs , Id bcnollclal effects mo already seen. Some ol the most noted quacks who have been plyIng - Ing theli vocation and taking thousands of dollais ni'tiually fiom the people of Iowa , have already left tlio stale or nio piopailng to go.

Tlio now law , which went IntoclTect on the lli t ot the jear , legulates the entlio practice of medicine In the state , sa > Ing In etlect w ho shall and who shall not piaetlce. Personr who can pioduco diplomas liom medical schools of good staiidlmr , iccognl/ed as good by the state hnaid of health , and persons who have been In con tinuous , reputable practlco In the state for live j ears are entitled to coitlllcates and practlco without other action. All otheis must pass an examination before the state boird of examiners. Tlio penalty lor at tempting to practice without a certlllcato In cludes line and linpilsonmunt , making Us disregard of the law a veiy setious mattei. Theio has been some grumbling and com plaining at the law , but It has been well in- celved bj the people ol the State generally. paitlcuhuly so by mcmbeis ol the medical profession who feel that they hav oat last a motsurttof prote-ctton against Irresponslblo and untiustwoithy ilvals , who biitiic ills- gi aeo upon the name of physician. Thu law Is not so exclusive In Its operations but that it allows magnetic hcnlcrs , ot whom them are a good many In Iowa , to come nndoi Its piovlslons. Where they have piactlced their ait foi live yoais , continuously In tlio state , tliev may continue loud ) people Into health if they ean without iiileileicuce , so far us the law is concerned. I Hi : I'llAHMACV LAW. The present jo.il will have soveial new Jaws to tii , and none of them is watched with moio interest thin the phaimacyaet. so far as It eonceins tlio sale ol Ihiuois. When the last legislature met , It was confiontcd with the facl that whllo the law piohiblting tlio s.iloof Ilipiois had gone into eflecl tlieio was oppoitunity foi much nilsundcistanding , und some injustice In tlio mallei ol sales lei legitmato purposes , to- wlt : medicinal , mechanical , eiillnaiandsac- | lamental. Under some Intcipiclations ol the law the fling-gist did not due , without n special penult , sell oven lor tlm legitimate uses not forbidden by law. In some locali ties phjslclans could not get a gilt ol whisky foruse in fhelr piaetlce , 01 an ounce of al cohol to prcparo their medicines. Under these circumstances it was felt that some re lief was needed , and the Icglslatuio decided to frame an act that should glv n the druggists unquestioned light to sell foi legitimate pur poses. That was done with the expectation that the right would not bo abused , and that the legitlumtq business could bo hotter controlled In that way than the other. The state pharmacy commissioner eav o assurance that such w oulil bo the case , and has tiled ever since fo see that the law was faithfully observed. Thoiu is considerable complaint In many localities that the dtugglsts have abused their privl- lene * , and have viitually supplanted the saloons and succeeded to then patronago. To some extent tlio complaint Is undoubtedly well loundcd. Thcio is no doubt tliat many di ugglsts , some ol them In this cltv , aio sell ing liquors lar bojond the matoilal require ments for medicinal and otliei legitimate purposes. Their rotnins to tl-o county atid- itois show this to be tine. Unt It is also true that tills piactico is no ! tliat against wlilcli public sentiment was so stiongly aimed that the nioliibltoiy law was demanded. The people who voted toi piohibitlon voted sub stantially against , the open saloons. Tlmv insisted Hint tlio saloon was an institu tion wholly ovll , and a constant meiiaio to Hie peace and good ordoi of the state. II was n place wlieio criminals icsorted , mid wheic clime was hied. It was a souico oC weakness to society and dangei to the stato. Aecoidingly llio saloons weio closed. Tliuir place lias not been taken bv tlio drug stoics. Kvou if men do under a plea ot djspupsia , carrj off bottles ol beei ovciy dav to their homes and diinlc them theie , the peace and prospent ) of tlio state is not put In very gieat jeopaidy. The puiposo of piohibitlon , wlilcli v > is to close the open saloons , thu bleeding place ol cilmo , has been accom plished. .So lent : as men do theli drlnklngat homo in the presence ol thoii families half ot Ibo evils of the piactico have been avoided.
