Association there will be an import ant meeting of the association held in Atlantic Friday January when the work already done by the association will be reviewed and the future work There is a grtat deal of interest being taken in this meeting and the attendance promises to be large and Because of the failure on the part of exsecretary of the state to render a satisfactory financial statement of the doings of the state local interest in its affairs became dormant about a year ago but since the change in that office by the appointment of Wal son of Henry Wallace of Wal laces the state association has taken on a new lease of life and the membership ia increasing in all parts of the state by leaps and The annual state meeting will be held in Des Moines in February and one of the

by the commission Such a storm of protest was raised by the Iowa Corn Belt Meat Pro ducers Association in conjunction with the American Cattle Growers association that the recent threatened advance of 33 per cent in the rates charged the stock shippers of the west by the bie commission houses has been This advance was to have been made on carload lots of hogs and sheep and was to be made by the commission houses of Kansas Omaha and smaller points This advance would have taken an extra from the stock shippers of Iowa Western shippers had a load bowl because they have been unable to make much profit during the last two Threats made by the two associations to establish independent commission houses bad the desired eftect and the new rate was not made The association is also engaged at this time in correcting the cripple evil as it is known to live stock cen and this will save thousands of dollars yearly to shippers and grow The real truth as to the Corn Belt Meat Producers Association is that every farmer iu Cass county should belong to It has already saved to every one of them more than the membership fee and the good work it intends and can do if it has the is only just In union there is and this is as true of the farmers of the coun try as of any other class or avoca The Corn Belt Association is already a recognized force in dealing with questions of interest to farmers and

to Dissolve Restraining Order in Census Yesterday afternoon Attorney Gen eral MnlJan for the State argued his motion to dissolve tbe lestrainiug order issued by Judge Bishop at the request of Attorney Roekafel acting for Atlantic and was followed by JRockafellow in opposition to its The court at the conclusion of the argument took tbe matter under giving both parties until two oclock today Wednesday to file additional and announced that their decision would be given at an early Rockafellow returned to Atlan tic this Wednesday morning and to a representative of this paper stated that he was unable to forecast what the decison would He also said that the statement in the Omaha Bee of this morning by its Des Moines correspondent that Attorney General Mullan had said that he would knock out the McPherson injunction as soon as he got to it seemed rather prema ture as the Attorney General did not see the petition in the federal injunc tion case until after five oclock yes terday He expressed a belief that tbe temporary injunction issued by Judge McPherson would be made permanent and that it was rather early in tbe day for the Attorney General or anybody elss to predict that tbe action in the federal court to protest the rights of his non resident clients would not The injunction of federal court holds the 22nd of at which as the question as to its permanency will be The ques tion at issue in the argument of the injunction matter before tbe federal court will be that of In the petition for the temporary injunc tion appearing for the Rock Island Brewing set forth the fact that the applicants were that the publica tion of the census report from this city as amended by Judge would vitally affect their interests in that it would result in closing the saloons two of wbich are operat ed by that They urged as tbe reason for an injunction the fact that they were nonresidents of the that tbe return of the Atlantic enumerator was 5181 and that Judge in cutting it went outside of bis Wherefore they asked the federal court to restrain the publication of tbe thus protecting their wbich protection as they seek in federal The question of jurisdiction being thus introduced into the case that will be the one argued before Judge McPherson on tbe 22nd of and if holding that the disrtict court here had no juris diction in the makes the temporary injunction then there will be nothing for tbe executive council to do but to publish tbe census return of Needles or else leave the Atlantic return out of the state In either if such is the outcome of the the situa tion as it affects the saloon proposi tion will remain as if the census case had not been Meanwhile the decision of the supreme court in regard to the restraining order of Judge Bishop is awaited with some little The case is becoming a complicated one besides its it being the only like case in the annals of it presents many interesting points of Until the 22nd of at any the saloons will ran unchal
