Passes Bill Over Veto
Washington, Feb, 2_.-The
Webb liquor bill, prohibiting the
shipment of liquor into "dry"
States, was repassed in the Sen
ate to-day over President LTaft's
veto, within two hours from the
time the President's message of
disapproval had been laid before
t~hat body.
A short debate, in which the
advocates of the bill voted down
a motion to postpone action until
to-morrow, and in which they re
affirmed their belief that the
measure is constitutional, ended
with the repassage of the bill by
the large majority of 63 to 21.
The Webb bill passed both
houses of Congress and went to
the President ten days ago.
His veto message reached the
Senate about 3 o'clock to-day, ac
companied by an opinion from
Attorney general Wickersham.
Basing his decision upon the At
torney-general's findings, the
President expressed the belief
that the measure was clearly
unconstitutional because it gave
the States the right to interfere
with interstate commerce.
