An Interesting question will come be
fore the county commissioners of Pulaski
county at Mound City to-day. It comes
upon the application of Joe Taprich, ot
Ullin, fur license to sell liquor in less
quantities than a gallon. The law re
quires that before license shall be granted
the party applying for tho same shall
present to the commissioners a petition-
signed by a majority of the legal voters
of the precinct requesting that the license
he granted. In this case the temperance
people objected, and both parties have
been circulating petitions, and every
voter in the precinct has his name to one
or the other of them, and lu numerous
instances men have signed both the pe
tition aud the remonstrance. The qucs.
tion will be presented' to the commis
loners to-day, when it is expected that
half the people of Ullin will be present,
