The Ate the Liquor Law and the Revenue Bill, and Are Under Discussion- Legislative Notes. DBS MoiNES, Iowa, March 13, 1894.— The ninth week of the Twenty-fifth general assembly closed on Saturday. Neither of the two great questions that Were supposed to be up for settlement by this assembly, namely: The new revenue system and the new liquor law, has yet been settled nor are they much nearer settlement than they were two weeks ago. The revenue bill has been reported from the senate ways and means committee and is on the calendar. It is no doubt as near perfect as it can be made. But it must run the fire of discussion and debate. It revolutionizes everything pertaining to the assessment and taxation of property. In some form the.bill ought to pass in order that it might be embodied in the new codification of the laws of the state, which has been ordered. If the weather does not become too spring- like, thus bringing on an early adjournment, the revenue bill may possibly become a law. The two bills described in this correspondence last week have been up in their respective houses for consideration, but little real progress has been made. In the house, what is known as the Martin bill, which is more of a mulct than the Carpenter bill, has been discussed and some few amendments have been made. The bill does not suit either the prohibition or the anti- prohibition republicans and it is difficult now to foretell its doom. On Saturday the house refused to strike out the provision of the bill which provides that the payment of the mulct tax shall be a bar to'prosecutions under the prohibitory law. This would indicate that the radical prohibition republicans were disposed to make some concessions for the sake of fulfilling the platform. If the provision referred to had been struck out the bill would have been davoid of any feature to distinguish it from the present illegal mulct practiced in many Iowa cities and towns. In the senate, the radical prohibitionists like Senators Finn, Rowen, Phelps, Cheshire and others have offered a great many amendments, some of which were adopted. Mr. Phelp's amendment taking out "spirituous liquors," thus making the proposed new law the same as the old Iowa law that had stood for thirty years, was adopted. Amendments were also adopted prohibiting treating; also prohibiting liquors from being sold in the basement or upstairs rooms. The discussion in the senate was opened by Senator Funk, chairman of the committee on suppression of intemperance. Senator Funk made an able presentation of the situation in Iowa as it is today. He expressed his belief in prohibition, but thought the people of the state had not stood by it is fully as ought to have been the ease, therefore, prohibition had been disappointing in many respects. He spoke AS a republican desiring only the good of the state and the success of his party. A number of republican senators, notably Eaton and Phelps, claim that the republican platform authorizes them to represent their constituents, a majority of whom are prohibitionists. They claim they have as much right to represent their prohibitionists as the anti-prohibitionists haye to represent their anti-prohibitionists, also that the last clause in the thirteenth plank is nugatory because the first part of the resolution submitted the question to the legislature and therefore could not consistently go ahead and tell the legislature what to do. Since the liquor problem is up in both houses, no other subject of legislation receives any serious attention. In the hotel lobbies, in the street cars and other public places the talk is all concerning the liquor problem. This refers only to republicans. Democratic senators and representatives aro so few as to be almost entirely lost sight of in tho reckoning, though now and then some one will say that if tho republicans do not get together the radical anti-prohibition republicans will unite with the democrats and pass a straight democratic license measure without any of the radical restrictive features Aat are to bo found in the Carpenter jjll. There is little likelihood of that Diking place. The republicans will Snally settle tho question in some way without aid from the democrats. No republican disputes tho assertion thai ;he situation is perplexing, It is evident that no matter what is done, the jill that is passed will not authorixa ;he maufacture of liquors in tho state. An effort is being made by some active republicans to arrange a compromise by which some such measure as ihe Carpenter bill shall pass, coupled with a rcsubmission of the prohibitory amendment. They claim that this would be meeting the emergency 'airly. The license republicans would et a very stringent county option easMre with some exceptions in be- lalf of cities and that law could stand until the amendment could pass ihrough two general assemblies and then reach the people. The advocates of this compromise say that there must :>e some concessions on both sides and ;hat if some toleration is extended to ;he saloon, the license element ought to be satisfied and the prohibitionists ought to be satisfied with the proposi- jon to again submit the question to the entire voting population of the state. They claim that the Carpenter bill would have a tendency to take the matter out of politics because it requires that the liquor question should je submitted to the voters separate and apart from all other questions, thus putting the matter where democrats could honestly vote for excluding the saloon without voting the republican ticket. The friends of this compromise seem to be making some headway and it may be possible that they have found a solution for the republican dilemma. SENATOR BROWER ON HIS MUSCLE. In a cloak room of the senate on Saturday, Senator Brower knocked down S. H. Shoemaker, editor of the Hampton Chronicle. Mr Shoemaker claimed that Senator Brower had pledged him self two years ago last spring to stand by prohibition, if he was re-elected. Senator Brower denied making any such pledges. Shoemaker called Browor a liar tmd Brower hit him th ree times and Mr. Shoemaker carried away a very black eye. Mr. Shoe maker is somewhat smaller and some what older than Senator Brower. There are those who predict that be fore the liquor discussidn ends Senators Brower and Finn will come together and as both are stalwarts, physically, the contest will be a vigorous one. Both are old soldiers and it is stated that neither man has ever been whipped. The friends of both gentlemen hope that they may confine their discussions within the rules of parliamentary debate and not make the rules of the Marquis of Queensbury necessary. LEGISLATIVE NOTES. The democratic members of the senate have so far refused to vote on any of the amendments proposed to the Carpenter bill. They decline to answer when their names are called. They prefer to let the republicans fix up their own bills. Possibly the demo crats feel that they have enough trouble of their own. It is a wise democrat who knows when he haa enough. It seems to be conceded that the new asylum will be ordered. Representative Trewin's bill provid ing for a commission to codify the laws of Iowa has passed the senate, having previously passed the house. There are to be five commissioners, two to be appointed by the house, two by the supremo court and one by the senate. The commissioners are to begin their work before the first day of September of this year, are to complete the same and have it printed by the first day of November, 1895. Each member of the commission is to receive $10 a day of not less than six hours actually employed in the discharge of the duties of the said commission. The commission shall have power to employ a clerk or stenographer at not more than $5 per day. L. YOUNG.

Tho bereaved sister has tho sympathy of all. J. F. PRESTON, M. D., LIMITED TO and Throat MASON CITY, IOWA. At Dv. Stall's offlee, FRIDAY, MARCH 10. ADMINISTRATION NOTICE.
