Incomplete returns from nearly bait
the counties in the stale would indicate
that the repeal of the prohibition clause
in our state constitution has carried by
an overwhelming majority. So far,as
complied the returns are 7,000 for repeal
and 093 against repeal. It must not be
token for granted, however, aa assumed
by many that the vote to repeal the
olause in the constitution, if carried, alee
repeals the law. The latter will have to
be done by the legislature as the law
t&ands on a much broader foundation
tban the mere statement of the clause in
the constitution. It is just as much a
a law for the regulation of the liquor
traffic without the clause in the consti
tution as a license law would be without
a license clause in the constitution, hen
oe it will Btand and be in force and effect
until repealed by the legislature or an
other law is substituted in its place, just
the same as any other law passed for the
regulation and protection of society.
It is not at all probable that this legis
lature will pass a license law, high or
low, as it is mainly a populist legislature,
and the platforms of the People's Jparty

GF.RMAN BICYCLE LAWS.
American Tourist* Con iilrr Them Some
thing of a Hardship.
WASHINGTON. Nov. 11.—Complaints
are frequently made Ly traveling Amer
ican bicycle riders, touring through
Germany ofob-ta'-ies and delays caused
by the very rigorous laws governing
the use of bicycles on the public roads
iu that ccuntjy. For the benefit of
6uch tourists, United States Consul
Sawter at filausohen cites a few of the
stricter rules which cyclers are o illed
upon ft) observe throughout the empire.
Cycling on public streets and roads,
particularly iu Saxonv, ho said, is sub
ject to minute and carefully enforced
police regulations, -which in many
places prohibit altogether the use of
brakeless machines. The roads with but
few exceptions are perfect and wheeling
is smooth and easy, but on account of
rainy weather, which prevails most of
the year, wheel guards for wet weather
are iudispensible. The alarm }ell is.
of course, in demand everywhere.
What the Law Require*.
The law requires that the lamp be
rather highly placed on the wheel, and
be kept from half an hour after sunset
to half an hour before sunrise. Each
bicycle must be provided with an easily
managed brake, managed easily and
powerfully. Cycling on roads ex
clusively intended for pedestrians, or
upon the elevated footpaths and high
ways is strictly prohibited. Two bi
cyclists may ride side by side, when it
can be done without blocking the
thoroughfare or annoying any other
riders or vehicles, otherwise single tile
is the rule. More than two machines
abreast are not permitted under any
circumstances. When meeting other
bicycles, or overtaking them, or when ap
proaching passages of the road vtfiere it
is not possible to see a long distance, or
when reaching 41 steep descent, the
rider is obliged to give frequent signals
with his bell, as a matter of Btrict pre
caution in avoiding collisions. Moderate
speed must be maintained at all times.
Scon-lung is forbidden
011
all German
highways. At very steep down grades
the cycler must dismount and guide his
wheel until the descent is passed before
remounting, Cyclers are also required
to dismount at any time if called upon
by police officials to do so, and are
obliged to give such officials any infor
mation they may demand. For disre
gard of any of these regulations a tine
not exceeding 60 marks, or $14.37, with
imprisonment in jail for not more than
two weeks, or both, may be inflicted
for each offense.

Sioux CITY, la., Nov. 11.—Gustave
Erickson of this city went to the peni
tentiary to please his wife. He was al
leged to have married in Omaha several
years ago, to have deserted bis wife
after a time, and, coming 40 Sioux
City, to have remarried without having
previously secured a divorce from No. 1.
He entered a plea of guilty to the charge
of bigamy and was sentenced to nine
month's imprisonment. "I was really
never married to more than one
woman," he remarked as he followed
the sheriff from the court room, "but
my wife was determined to send me to
prison and I'd do anything to please
her."

NEW YORK, NOV. 11.—The anarchists

punished for the perpetration of the
Haymarket dynamiting. The principal
speaker was Herr Most.
