THEI BEER OASES.
The Governor Hopes Supreme Oouri
Will Soon be Given Opportunity
to Pass on Sec. 36 of Act.
Governor Ansel today, says the Re
= cord of the .15th, rendered his do
cision inl the Richland beer bottlin
- case. He concludes that the questior
raised is a judicial one and that he
'has no right to make any order re
quiriw the Richland county boar
either to grant or revoke a permil
for bottling beer. He puts the lau
question i) to the suptreie court,
refusing to take a hand inl the matter.
''I am satisfied,'' the decision con
eudes, ''that the said board did not
act willfully, deliberately and criiiii
nally as alleged in the- petition. It
