ported to House
By the Associated Press
Washington, June 30. The Depart
ment of Justice is understood to have
decided that sale of light wines anil
beer shall not be interfered with under
the war-time prohibition law.
Attorney General Palmer will issue
a statement today on the department's
attitude on the enforcement of the law,
which becomes effective at midnight.
Instructions went forwnrd today to
district attorneys in wet territory that
.the department would nbidc by the re
cent decision in the test case brought In
New Tork and would not prosecute
dealers selling beverages containing not
more than 2 per cent of alcohol.
In permitting saloons to rcmnin open
for the sale of 2 per cent beverages i
the Department of Justice is understood
not to forgo the privilege of prosecu
tion later, if its contention that 2
per cent beer Is intoxicating is upheld.
In short, the question merely is held
in abeyance until a finnl decision is
reached in the test cases. The Supreme
Court cannot pass on tho question be
Dry Laws Deforo House
Laws for enforcement of both war
time and constitutional prohibition were
favorably reported to the House late
today by the judiciary committee. They
define as "intoxicating" any beverage
containing more than one-half of one
per cent of alcohol.
Consideration of the measure is not
to begin until after the Independence
uay holidays, but prohibition leaders
expect them to go through without un
usual delay and they say their enactment
will .serve to make illegal the sale of light
wines' and 2 per cent beer, at least,
until the President declares demobiliza
It was said at the Department of Jus
tice thdt open violation of the law,
threatened in New York, and other
HtieS, would be promptly dealt with by
Whether the department's present
force will be able to break up secret
traffic remains to be seen, but in this
connection officials pointed out that the
increased appropriation asked of Con
gress for general law enforcement would
permit of a considerable enlargement of
the department's force.
A bill "to keep the country from go
ing on a whisky drinking basis" in
the period from the demobilization of the
army until the effective date of con
stitutional prohibition, was introduced
today by Bcpresentatlve Randall, pro
hibitionist, California. It would pre
vent the shipping In and ont ot the
country and la Interstate commerce
-'all distilled, malt, vinous and other
Intoxicating liquors," and would spe
cifically prohibit removal from bond of
dlstill.ed spirits for beverage purposes.
Can't Transport Liquor
In the opinion of Department of Jus
tlce officials and many members of Con
gress wartime prohibition will have no
effect on the Heed amendment prohibit
ing the transportation of intoxicants
Into territory where Its manufacture
and sale is forbidden by local laws.
Information has reached the depart
ment that many persons living In "dry"
territory have stored quantities of
liquor In "wet" cities with a view to
transporting it after today, but enforce
ment of the Reed amendment will In no
wise be relaxed.

"If you don't observe th"e suggestions

one of the speakers at the meeting which
he rnided had encournged the audience
to "get what they could by theft and
