THE MULCT FINDS FAYOR Rumor is Current that the Senate Committee Has Agreed on the Harsh Bill, This Deals With the Liquor Question on the Given Mulct Plan—The Week in the Iowa Legislature. DBS MOINES, Feb. 6.—The general assembly wound, up its fourth week on Saturday. Senate bills now -number above 160, while the house bills go above 276. No bill of any nature has yet become a law. The members have drawn $275 each, which they are entitled to do thirty days after the opening of the session. Clerks and other employes are paid every two weeks. The great question of the session pertains to the proposed and promised change in the prohibit":y law. There is no dispute as to ihe promise. The only thing to determine is, what will fill the bill. The " mulct" has the most followers. The Bfower bill comes next. The democrats have brought forth a local option license measure, but it will stand no show unless republicans quarrel among themselves. The "river county" republicans say they shall not be satisfied with the ''mulct;" they claim to have that already, outside the law. Republican members and senators are consulting night and day as to what had better be done. That thirteenth plank makes a hard problem. There is practically no news to give. Everything is in a formative state. The almost entire absence of a lobby so far indicates that the corporate and special interests are not worried or losing any sleep. They say it is a .egislature practically without cranks or member with "fads." A strong effort is being made to give women the ballot in municipal and .ocal elections, and lawyers like J. S. Polk of this city claim that this can be done without changing our state constitution. The revenue bill, embodied in the •eport of the tax commission will rank next to the temperance question in im- )ortance when the real work of the session begins. Those two are practically the only great questions pending. The Harsh Mulct. The rumor is constantly current that lie republican members of the senate committee on the suppression of intemperance have practically agreed upon a mulct bill, substantially as in- roduced by Senator Harsh. It provides for a general state tax of $1,000 on the liquor traffic where it is carried on anywhere in the state without a egal permit to do so, " and such addi- ional sum as may be fixed by city councils in all cities of 2,000 or over nhabitants having organized ^police protection." The tax is assessed upon ind against the property and owner and ceeper of any and every place where iquor is sold as a beverage. The tax s to be collected by the county treasurer and paid over to the city treasurer. The Harsh bill recognizes the actual egal existence of the liquor traffic and t is thus able to place restrictions and •egulations. The city council may provide by ordinance that the tax shall e paid monthly. In that case, pro- ided the council consider the person paying the tax to be a fit person to en- age in the traffic and provided the person has not been convicted of viola- ion of any ordinance of the city relat- ng to the liquor traffic, the payment of tax operates as a bar to all proceed- ngs under the prohibitory law for a jeriod of thirty days. The city council must provide by ordinance for punishment and penalties for selling liquor in any other than a single room opening on and fronting upon public business streets, patrolled at least twice a day by a policeman; for having the beer out of plain sight of passers by, for the use of screens, blinds or painted windows, and for having cards or billiards, or other gambling tables, dice or other gambling device whatever in connection with the selling of alcoholic liquors. Also for selling to minors, drunkards, or intoxicated persons. The contest among republicans will je squarely between the Harsh "mulct" and the Brower county option bill, which is the old Gatch bill of two years ago. The Jackson County Contest. The special committee composed of men of both parties found that W. M. Stephens (rep.) instead of A. W. Richardson (dem.) was elected from Jackson county. Accordingly Stephens was given the seat by a unanimous vote. BTew Senate Bills. Sepator Jamison's bill, Senate file STo. 89, is for an act creating a commission to revise and codify the laws of Iowa and defining its duties, and providing for the publication and distribution of its report. Senator Boardman has presented a bill lor an apt to for tbe §r^}ti- age p| highways, to authorize the pur- chase or condemnation of the right o way over private property for the ex* tension of highway drains and for the payment of the cost of extending such drains and for the assessment of taxes for the payment therefor. Senator Craig, by request, has presented a bill for an act to establish the eastern Iowa school for the deaf and to provide for the building and govern ment of the same. A bill for an act providing a substitute for chapter 6 of title 9 of the code of 1873, and for establishing and governing mutual savings, loan and building associations, has been introduced by Senator Finn, Senator Palmer's bill for an act requiring the United States flag to be placed upon all school houses or school grounds of the state of Iowa will probably pass. The senate committee on claims has reported in favor of paying Hon. J. L. Brown's claim. Senator Gorrel has introduced senate file No. 142, a bill for an act to regulate and equalize the assessment laws and compel the owners of notes, mortgages, and other securities to pay their just proportion of . taxes whether they reside in Iowa or elsewhere. This a bill to tax mortgages. Senator Palmer has introduced senate file No. 138, a bill for an act to authorize the appointment of a commission to ascertain and mark the position occupied by Iowa troops on Lookout Mountain and Missionary Ridge (the battle of Chattanooga,) the government having purchased the battle grounds. STILL AFTER THE WOLVES. Ljcclynrd Is to Try and Surround a Wolf-How the South End Will The Elmore Eye says the craze for wolf hunts is contagious, and that Al- •ona is likely to be held responsible for all sorts of foolishness before spring: The disease, for such it must surely be, first manifested itself at Algona where a few of the citizens of Bancroft became exposed. It spread rapidly and inally resulted in sending out about 150 men on a cold day to round up about 'our townships of atmosphere. It was loped that the recent cold weather ivould stop the spread of the disease, >ut such is not the case, as the people of Ledyard have made a call to arms and hope to have the people of Elmore oin them in making another grand •ound up, and John Ingalls has been appointed captain of the north line. When the four hundred brave men of Algona failed to get a scalp, we laughed. When a similiar fate befell the men of Bancroft, Algona laughed with us. 3ut when we join with Ledyard and meet the same fate as those before, there will come from Alg6na and Ban- roft a " horse laugh" in which wo will not feel like joining. A BIG SWINDLER ABROAD, One Price Makes HlK 1'roinlses In the Name of the Algoiia Deposit & Loan Association — Ho (Jniuiot be ITound. Some weeks ago the officers of the Al- jona Deposit & Loan association ac- :epted a man named Price, who came 'rom Hampton, as a soliciting agent for them, and what trouble ho has made is shown in the following item in the Spencer Reporter: " A person bearing the name of Price was in town recently purporting to •epresent the Algona Loan & Trust Co., who obtained money from several people in town on promises of speedy loans and good investments. Investigation seems to point to some scientific prevarication on the part of the so-called agent, as the company says he had no authority to make such promises, and ,hey cannot possibly fulfill them." The Spencer people were for riding lim out of town on a rail when they ound out that he had been deceiving hem, and he skipped and has not been leard of since by the officers here. They are very much put out by his misrepresentations, have cancelled all authority he ever had, and will further attend to his case if they can find his whereabouts. Deserving Praise. We desire to say to our citizens that for ,'ears wo have been selling Dr. King's New Pjscovei'y for consumption, Dr. King's Now liife Pills, and Buclen's Arnica Salvo and Electric Bitters, and have never handled remedies that sell as well or that have given such universal satisfaction. We do nothes- tate to guarantee them every time, and we stand ready to refund the purchase price if satisfactory results do not follow their use. These remedies have won their great popu- arity purely on their merits. Sold by L. A. Sheetz. _ 1 Ground Feed Is the Best. H. J.
