ILLINOIS LIQUOR LAW
IT IS HBLD TO BK CONSTl'M
TIONAL HY TUB SU
OPINION OF JUSTICE SCOTT, DE-
LI VKIiKIi I nr. i&i
Tho followinc is the opinion of the
supremo court, announced by Mr, Jus-
tieo Scott on tno lot instant.
This was si uroseeution coinmenccil
before a justice of the peace ngainst
.1 ,1, :.!
tlio appellant, lor sennit; lutuxicnung
liquor without a liccrec. Tlio Justice
found him guilty, nud nsscsseda fine
of S20 against bin), anil reinlereil
judgement accordingly. Ou tlie appeal
taken to tlio circuit court, mc causo
was submitted on an agreed state of
facts, nod tho court, pro forma, found
the appellant Kiiilty, and entered n
judgement against him of S20 rttidcosts.
From the statement ot laets it ap
pears the nppellnnt Tc.ides near the
city of Ottawa, in Lab'allc county, but
not within the limits of any incorpora
ted town or city ; that ho has never
given the requisite bond and obtained
a licence to keep a grocery as required
by the first section of an act entitle 1
'An act to provide against the evils
resulting from the sale of intoxicating
liquors in the stato of Illinois, ap
proved January l.'l, 1S71," and at his
residence, as stated, lie has repeatedly
sold intoxicating liquors in a quantity
less than one quart, to any perron who
desired to purchase, to bu drank on hi
premises by the glass, and tho liquors
so bold were drauk by the persons pur
chasing on his premises, by his per
mission. It is provided, in tho first section of
the act under which this prosecution
was commenced, it shall lie unlawful
I for any person not having obtained a
any quantity, intoxicating Viquors to
bo drauk ou tho premises whera sold,
or in any miiutuiuu iuuiu, v. iu u
placo of public report connected there
with, and no person shall be granted n
licence without first uiviiik a bond to
the municipality or authority author
ized by law to grant licence, iu the
penal sum of $1,000, with two sufli
eicut securities, which shall be condi
tioned and for the purposes therein di
The second section provides it shall
be uulawlul lor auy person to sell iu
toxicating liquors to minors except
upon the written authority ol their
parents, guardians, or familv physi
cinns, or to persons intoxicated,
or wno arc in t lie nauit ot irct 1 1 ti tr in
In the third section It is provided, all
places whoreln intoxicating minora are
xuld in violation of this act shall be
taken, held, and declared to bo common
nuisances, and all such places shall bo
shut and abated, on the conviction of
the keeper thereof.
The sixth section declares what pen
altieH Miall tic lutllPtuil on tlio pcrsour.
violating the provisions of the first und
rccoml sections ot this act
Tho admitted facts show a clear vio
lation of the first section of the statute,
but not of the second
It is insiiiiul a cotiWctioti cannot be
maintained unless tlio cvidcuco shows a
violation of the first and second sec
tions. I lie objection seems livpocrit-
ical. it is founded on the peculiar
phraseology ol the sixth section, which
imposes the penalties, and which pro
vides that every person guilty of viola
ting the provisions of tho "first and sec
ond sections" shall forfeit and pay cer
The penalties imposed by that sec
tion arc for tho violation ot either soc-
tion, and it is not itidispcusiblo u party
should be guilty of a violation of both
before ho can bo subjected to the for
feitures cnoumcratcd. This is the ob
vious meaning of tho words used, and
is the construction given to tho same
languago in the statute of Ohio on the
subject, in Miller, v. tho .State (.' of
Ohio, 47o). Our statute, in many re
peets, is :i substantial, and iu other
parts a literal, tranascript of the Ohio
law, and it is a rule that, when the leg
islature adopts substantially tho stat
utc of another state, it is presumed
also to adopt tho construction previ
ously given it by that state, utile such
construction is inconsistent with the
spirit und policy of our laws, (ltiggs
et al v. Wilton et al., Ill Ills. Jep IS;
Campbell v. (Juinlin, 3 Scam., 12;8 )
It is urged, tho clause of tlio third
secliou, which declares that all places
where intoxicating liquors arc cold iu
violation of this act to bo common
uuibauces, and shall be shut up or
abated, authorizes the destruction of
private property, and, therefore, con
travenes constitutional law.
Tho construction of this section is
not involved, directly, iu tho decision
of this case. Counsel, however, is iu
error in supposing it authorizes the
summary destruction of private prop
erty. It authorizes no such thing. It
simply declares all placets where intox
icating liquors are sold iu violation of
this act common nuisances, and pro
vides that they may be shut un and
this trafiio carried on there abated.
Tho object is to prevent theasK'inblago
of idle and evil-dispjsud per,ons, for
tho purpose of violating tho lawh of the
state. Under what is called the police
powcr. thc legislature has tho right to
authorize tho abatement of a public
nuisance and the carrying ou of an il.
logal trailio in intoxicating liquors, and
the assembling of idle and vicious pcr-
auna inr mat purpo-e, us a nuisances,
aim may o be declared and abated ac
cording to law. (Mock v., tho town
of .Jacksonville, 3U Ills. Hep., ,'101,
and canes cited.)
There is nothing in this clause of
inetniru section that we arc aware of
mat contravenes any provision of our
constitution. Tho samo construction
has been givon to n liko provision iu
tho Ohio statute, iu Miller vs. tho
Tho point which H.'Clnis to lul willful
on with the most confidence is l,n .,
in conflict with tbo clau'o of the twen
ty -second section cf the fourth article
of tho constitution of 1870, which pro
hibits the passage of local or special
laws "granting to any corporation or
individual nny special or exclusive
privilege, immunity, or franchiso what
ever." Tho reason assigned is, the act of
1SSD, which purports to rc-cuact the
laws which had been repealed by the
act of 1851, that authorized county au
thorities to grant licences to keep a
grocery, was never legally enacted, ac
cording to the forms prescribed iu the
constitution of 15J17, and there was
therefore no law in force at the passage
of tho act of 1872, authorizing the
granting of licences, other than the
charters of incorporated towns nud
cities ; nud hence, it is Raid, n person
residing outside of the limits of such
municipal corporations could not ob
tain a license, and for that reason the
the law operates unequally ou the citi
zens, and is void.
'It is uot perceived how the ques
tion can ariso iu this case. There is a
statute that invests the county authori
ties with a discretionary power to grant
licenses to keep a grocery anywhere in
the county, except iu towns and cities
that, under their charters have tho ex
clusive privilege, which has been iu
existance since IS 15, exclusive of tip)
interval between the passago of tho
acts of lS.'il and 1SS1. The appellant
does not claim he ever applied to the
authorities empowered by a law to
grant licenses for a license for himself.
Had the application been made and a
license denied, on the ground that
there was no law that would authorizo
it, then the question raised would be
presented for decision.
We are, however, ot opinion the
alidily of the present law is not af
fected by tho question whether tho act
of lbiiil, wlneli purports tore-enact the
laws repealed by the laws ot 1851, was
legally enacted according to the forms
of the conntitutioii, and it is uot ncces-
ary to express an oqimoii in ronard to
it. 11 it is tu tact true, at the date ot
the passauo of tho net of 1872, there
was no law under which a person re
uz outside the limits of ineorpora
ted towns and cities could obtain n li
cense to keep n grocery, it docs not fol
low the law, lor that reason, is uncoti'
The act we are coiisidcriug,in nearly
ill its provisions, is ueneral, und oner
atcs equally upon all classes of citizens
within tlio limits ot the state. The
first section prohibits all persons from
selling intoxicating liquors, who have
not hmt obtained a license as therein
provided. The appellant is within
this "cucral prohibition. The second
seetiou prohibits the sain of such lirju
ora to minors, without the written con
sent of the parents, guardians, or pity.
sician, ami contains an absolute re
striction upoti all persons, with orwith-
out a license, irom seiuii" to persons
intoxicated, or who are iu the habit of
If it be conceded the power to grant
a license to keep a grocery is confined
to incorporated towns and cities, which
by their charters, have the right to do
so, is the law, lor that reason, uncon
stitutional V Wo think not. Confess
edly the sale of intoxicating Honors
to be drank as a beverage, is a fruitful
source of crime in our midst, and tho
ertii.o of much individual sutTeritiK. If
such aro its fruits when hedged about
with penal statutes inteuued to control
it, manilestly the unrestrained traffic
would bo prolific of results that could
not be otherwise than detrimental to
the best interests of society. It may
be the best tnodo to effect tho benefi
cent object tho legislature had iu
view iu tho passago of the law, viz : to
provide against Uie evils resulting
from tho sale of intoxicating liquors,
to confine the power to license the sale
to incorporated towns and cities, where
it is supposed tlio police fnrco is more
efficiently organized, and can better
control it. It concerns the public
morals, koou order and wcllare of so
eiety ; and we arc not prepared to hold
that it is an unauthorized exercise of
tho police power of the state to so pro
vide. A law that applies to and con-
lers the same enoral powers on all in
corporated towns and cities in the state
is not necessarily a special law, and is
not inuiDiten v any provision of the
constitution against special legislation

Heiug of opinion the law under
which this prosecution was commenced
is not in contlict with tho constiution
of tho state, the judgment of tho cir
