when you deposit where you have the additional

protection is offered you here.
It .is surely "good business" to deposit where
you get absolutely guaranteed protection, in pref

"There, seems to be more misinforma
tion over the pending liquor bill,
known as the Kenyon-Shcppard bill,
than any measure with which I have
been familiar during my term in con
gress," said Congressman Norris today.
Mr. Norris is a member of the house
judiciary committee, which has had
the Kenyon-Sltappard bill under con
sideration, and'bas been present at
most of the various hearings which
have been held from time to time dur
ing the past year. ,
"I favor the passage of tfye bill, and
it seems to me that nobody can have
any objection to it except, the boot
Megger and the man who sella bin his
jboofe" continued Mr. Norris. , "H

liquor, and Sxesno' ptniishBaent upon
the shipper. It simply allows the law
of the state to wbieh 'the liquor is
shipped to operate, and allows state
authorities to exercise the right girea
them by their state laws to seise, the
liquor if they wish to do so after it
arrives at its destination before its de

'Under the present law liquor to be

commerce and'under federal laws not
subject to seiiure. This bill destroys
its interstate character. It nxes no
punishment, but if the state law pro
vides against liquor selling it can be
seized before delivery, and the state
authorities must then prove that it was
intended for illegal purposes before
they can convict.
"The burden of proof is upon the
state or individual seising the liquor
to show that it has been shipped in
for purposes contrary to law. Any
liquor sold to a licensed dealer cannot
