AS LAST YEAR Attorney* for Liquor Dealer* Argue That Statute Doe* Not Pro vide for Election. (Juneau Dispatch.) Judge Robert W. Jennings notified the retail liquor dealers of Juneau and Douglas recently that he would follow the same plan for determining the local option situation affecting issuing of retail liquor licenses in effect a year ago. Under this ruling of the court a census to determine the popu lation within two miles of any com munity whore a license is to be grant ed must be taken, followed by an “election” at which a majority of those on the census must vote wet In order that the court can issue a license. However, as in effect last year, any resident not on the census list can swear in their vote at the near-election. The election is under the direction of the United States commissioner. All expenses of the census and election is to be borne by the license applicants. The election is to be held in Juneau on June t. Represent Dealers William Holiheimer, representing the retail liquor dealers, pleaded with the court in behalf of the applicants. He told the court an unnecessary bur den of expense was being added to the applicants, pointing out the referen dum election ordered for November. George Irving, representing the dealers association, quoted an ex haustive brief to the court touching on the legal status of the case at the bar. Arguing, he said: Quotes the Statutes ‘*It is manifest from the reading of the law, that it was the intent of Con gress, that the intent of the citizens of the community, not only to say whether liquor should be sold at all. but also to say who should have the right to sell it; a majority of the people of the community within two miles of where the liquor was to be ; sold might be perfectly willing that John Doe might sell liquor, and be un willing to grant the privilege to John Smith. “The provision of the law that no further consent will be required for the period of 12 months after consent has been obtained, is simply to prev ent the necessity of a person holding such license from being harrassed in the enjoyment of same for the period of one year. “There is absolutely nothing in the law* which intimates that it was the intention of Congress that an election ' might be held for the purpose of as-1 certaining that the consent of a majority of the citizens, and that such consent when so obtained should be binding upon the community for the period of one year. There are no rules or regulations in the statute for the holding of such elections; and had Congress intended that the consent of the community wa, to be expressed in such a manner it would have surely’ provided the ways and means for the holding of such election at the time of the passage of the act; on the other hand Congress has provided and it is so written in the act the mode to be adopted—via: by petition.” _ - - ■ - - CHRISTIAN SCIENTISTS WILL MEET TOMORROW The regular service of the Christian Scientists will be held tomorrow even ing instead of this evening as the hall is taken up by the Oddfellows.
