The announcement made In certain quar

to this effect has been reached by the aa

The Board of Supervisors will canvass
the petition today and present Indications
are that the supervisors will decide that
the new statement of general consent Is
sufficient. It Is doubtful. If any contest
Is made before the board by ths anti-saloon
forces. The petition bears about 3
more signatures than absolutely required.
According to the filings made with the
county auditor yesterday the anti-saloon
forces have not been successful in securing
the withdrawal of persons who had signed
the petition of consent. B. C. F. Chambers,
the district superintendent of the Iowa
Anti-Saloon league, had a force of assist
ants copying off the names of those who
signed the petition and then prepared for
circulation a number of withdrawal state
ments. For some reason or another the
antis did not carry on the canvass very
strenuously and the result has been that
only two withdrawals were secured. At
least only two were filed yesterday.
"It la very evident that those opposed
to the saloons did not make any effort to
secure withdrawals," declared Mr. Cham
bers yesterday afternoon In the office of
County Auditor Innea. "If they had, I
feel sure they could have secured more
withdrawals. As It is. It looks aa if they
were aatisfted to let things go as they are.
If the board finds the statement of con
sent Is sufficient, the finding will probably
hve to be accepted. It will be the busi
ness, however, of the Anti-saloon league to
see that those who are aecurlng the state
ment observe the letter of the law and
that subsequently they live up to it."

Attorney General Byers today and will
write a letter asking him for the Interpre
tation of the law. There la little question
but that the handling or selling of cigar
ettes is Illegal and as soon as hs gets
the opinion of General Byers he will start
a state-wide prosecution of cigarette sell
ers. Dealers all over ths state have taken
It for granted that the paying of the mulct
tax exempted them from punishment for
tha sale. Section 6007 of the code statea
specifically that this Is not ths case.
though nine-tenths of the people of the
state have probably supposed tha law to
operate the same as the liquor mulct tax.
it is believed that General Byers can in
terpret the law but one way and that Is
that cigarettes selling Is illegal and sub
ject to a fine whether the cigarette mulct
tax Is paid or not.
