Synopsis of the Bills Introduced in the Two Branches—Other Legislative Matters. DBS Mottffis, March 6.—The house will begin the discussion of the proposed modification of the prohibitory law on tomorrow, March 7. The senate will take up the same subject the next day. THE HOUSE BILL. The house committee on the suppression of.intempevance has recommended the adoption of'the bill proposed by bill Besides a large variety of other canned goods at special prices. New Goods Are In. Our Fall stock is now in, and we have a complete line of all kinds of Dry G-oods, Carpets, Ladies' and Misses' Cloaks and Jackets and in Dress Goods we have an elegant line. In Clothing for men and boys we still have a small stock on hand which we are closing out cheap. We have a larger stock of Shoes than ever before, nearly all new, all of which we will sell at the lowest possible prices. the Martin sub-committee. The fixes tho tax on the liquor seller or property occupied the annual sum $600. The assessor is to report all places upon which liquors are sold for assessment, and if the assessor does not do so three citizens can do so. One- half of the tax shall go into the county treasury. In towns' of 5*000 inhabitants the payment of the tax shall be a bar to proceedings against the liquor seller under the prohibitory law. City councils must consent to liquor sales in towns of 6,000. In towns of less population a petition must be signed by a majority of the voters of the town as shown by the poll books of the last election. But no such statement of consent shall be construed as a bar to proceedings against persons selling intoxicating liquors in incorporated towns situated in townships of which less than a majority of the voters of the township, including the incorporated town, have signed the statement of consent, nor shall it be construed as a bur in any incorporated town in which a .majority of the voters do not sign said statement of consent. The bill has rigid restrictions as to sales and the place and time of sales. The bill winds up by providing that for the purpose of protecting the property of the corporation and its inhabitants and of preserving peace and good order therein, cities and incorporated towns shall have power to levy and collect additional taxes and to adopt from time to time rules and ordinances for further regulating and controlling such traffc not in conflict with the provisions of the act. It will be seen that the house bill is a mulct tax bill that requires the consent of the town, expressed in some form or manner. It does not say what consent shall be required in cities above 5,000 population. The house bill provides for getting rid of the saloon also. Section 20 says: " Whenever any of the conditions of the district court. Section 21 says: In any prosecution brought under provisions of the laws of Iowa prohibiting the manufacture or sale of spirit- ous, malt, fermented of vinous liquors as hereby amended, the holding of the permit under this act shall not be a defense when the offense charged is shown to have been a violation of any of the conditions in such permit." Both the bills contemplate popular consent as preliminary to tho sale of liquors. Neither bill repeals the prohibitory law nor the law governing registered pharmacists. Both bills prohibit games, music, pictures, sales to drunkards, minors, etc. In other words, both bills have all tho features usually found ia proposed Iowa license laws. One important feature of the senate bill is found in section 13 as 'ollows: Sec. 18. No permit shall bo granted except for sales within the corporate imits of cities and towns and no permits shall be granted for sales in any town, ctty, or voting precinct of any city, the electors of which oust a majority of votes against the proposition to soil such liquors at the Hard Times Prices. 1 pound Salmon .................... joe 24 pounds Peaches ................. ]0c 2i pounds Tomatoes ................ ioc California Goods . ~-._ t ,*.

The reader now has the important features of the two bills proposed by the republicans of the two committees. There will be republican opposition to both bills—opposition by those who will say they are too liberal to the liquor seller and by those who will say they are not liberal enough. The contest is now on and it will be one of the great contests of the decade. It may cover two weeks or more. So fat- there is no bitter feeling between republicans and there is no dispute as to the fact that "modification" has been promised. LEGISLATIVE NOTES. The introduction of bills has nearly ceased. The proposed amendment granting women the ballot was defeated in the senate on Wednesday by a vote of 20 to 26. All the democrats and 11 republicans voted no. Sawyer's bill offering a bounty of one cent per pound on beet sugar made in Iowa was defeated in the house. The farmers quite generally opposed the measure, A resolution is pending fixing the final adjournment for March 23, but the date will come nearer being- April 10. The senate ways and means committee has completed its work of framing a revenue bill as per the special recommendation of Governor Boies. The measure will bo reported Tuesday afternoon, but it is too long and complicated to become a law at this session. Governor Jackson has signed the bill prohibiting hunters from tramping over farm lands. The Carter bill, to protect makers of notes, passed the house by a large vote. The bill requires that notes jiven for patent rights, lightning rods 2i pounds G. G.

In other words under section 20 a community could change its mind and abolish the saloon and stop the system of taxation. The board of supervisors shall levy the liquor tax at their September meeting. The house bill has 26 sections and gives all tho particulars. Possession of a government license shall be prirna facie evidence that liquoraare sold and shall subject the building described in tho revenue license to the tax of $600 per year. THE SENATE BILL. The senate sub-committee bill on temperance prepared by Carpenter, Waterman, Ellis, Harmon and others has been reported to the senate with a favorable recommendation and is on the calendar. It is known as the Carpenter bill. It is more of an option bill and less of a mulct than the house bill. It provides that "counties and all cities having a population of 7,000 and upwards are election districts." Elections on the liquor question can be called on petition of one-third the voters. All elections are to be special, separate from other elections, and shall be but once in five years to vote the saloon in, but may be once a year to put them out. If the sale of liquors is authorized the tax shall be $500 per year and such additional sum as the town may impose. The Carpenter bill grants a ''permit" not a license, and says such permit shall be construed as a restraint and control only. Every facility for the revocation of permits is provided. Permits are granted and annulled by J. F. PRESTON, M. D., LIMITED TO Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat MASON CITY, IOWA. At Dr. Stull's office, FRIDAY, MARCH 10. Water or No Pay.
