:: tm&h- ff-.'&'t' X ). V t ! i: fc TEH PBOHIBITION LAW. An Important Opinion From tbe Attorney General. Tcpkka, Kaa., March 17, 1885. -- C'i?' Curtitr County Attorney, Shawnee County, -tvi'tKa Kansas. Dbas Sie : In answering the various questions Tou asKoi concerning the new prohibi'ory liquor law, pasp od by the recent legislature I will review the general si atus of the law on this subject, L e. the act of 1881 as amended and guppleinented by the act of 1885, which took effect March 10, 433. The net of 1881 is r-till in force except as nmended. J he only Kections amended are two, three, four, 'C en, tight, nine, twelve thirteen and twenty-one. Tne construction and decision of the higher .courts upon so much of the original act as remains unchanged, are 3? "i . 1 iiiereiore aumoniy ior mo interpretation or ine ,y,v4P'law as it now exists. With reference to the amend $"( i4 )r f efl section, in so far as the provisions thereof are S'vl l the same as the provisions of the original section", i & ' r ney should be construed as a continuation of the il i A old law, and not as a new enactment. Sec 1, Chap. J04, compiled laws of 1879. In this connection you inquire: 'Con persons be now prosecuted for acts committed prior to the enactment of the law of 1835?" I And, "Are druggist' iermit8 isued under the act of 1881, and unexpired by limitation, still good i in law!" Each of their questions are answered te the eflirmative uicu the authority of the everal provi sions of i-ub-divislon firbt, of section 1, Chop. 104, complied laws oi 1B. The repeal of a statute does affect any penalty incurred under or by virtue of the statute i epealed. This is an answer to the first question. The provisions of any statute, so far as they are the same as those of a prior statute, shall be construed as a continuation of such provisions and not as a new enactment. The provi-ions for obtaining a permit are the same now as they were by the prior law except that freehold instead of citizen petition ers are now required. Such provisions as are the 1 i-arue, are a continuation of the former act, and not 1 as a new enactment. This is an answer to the 6ec- ond question. It i not necessary to surrender and renew permits g anted under the law of 1881, prior to their expiration. J But you ask "What is the status of the bond given I under the act of 1881, where a druggist continues to hell under his old permit?" The amendatory act repeals absolutely the bond t provisions and new bond ie now required. The bond " given is therefore not held for violations commit ( ted subsequent to the taking effect of the act of lbSS. The repeal of a statute however does not J 'fleet nny rights which accrued, or ( liabilities incurred under the statutes repealed. Sec 1, ch. 104, comp. laws 1879. Therefore the bond remains liable for all violations discovered or to be discovered, committed prior to the repeal. The first section of the act of 1881 remains un- changed making it a misdemeanor to manufacture ell or baj ter any intoxicating liquors except for medical, scientific and mechanical purposes. The second section of the act of 1881 is amended by section one of the act of 1885. The change sub stantially is the requirement of freehold petitioners instead of citizens and the striking out of the re i quirement of any bond by the druggist No bond . i required of drugglt-ta applying for permits sub- r-equent to tho parage of tne act or 1885. Upon this section you ask: "Whether two or more parties cngnged in business as a firm will be lequirod each and separately to take out a per mit:" And alo, "Will the prescription clerk of the druggist bo required to tako out a permit!" While t lie section remains unchanged, so far as these questions are concorned, the courts have not been called upon to construe the same in these par ticulars. The section contemplates that the peti tioners should certify to tho good mora kharacter of the appl cant or applicants, and that he or they are lawfully engnged in the business of druggists, and that the probate judge in granting the petition should be satisfied that the same is true, and that the applicunt or applicants can be entrusted with the responsibility of selling liquor for the excepted purposes, 'tt here two or more persons, each quali fied to obtain a permit, desire to take out one per mit jointly as u firm, there can be no objection to their doing co. They may each do bo separately, and therefore there is no reason why they may not do so jointly. The petitioners in such case, however, must certify that each are of good moral ciiaracter, and each are lawfully engaged in the busiuc-s of druggists, and tho probate judge in'uU b(v-;iti!-I;cd thai the petition is true as to each, and-that each are fit to be trusted with this respon-i-ibility. In the case of such joint petition, if the prolialu judge is not satisfied in these particulars as to any one, he should refus-e the petition although satisfied concerning the essentials as to all the oth er. Under a permit granted to a particular person or to several persons doing business as a firm, only the person or persons named therein can selL The qualifications aid the trustworthiness of any other person -was not certified to by the petitioners, nor pas-ed upon by the piobate judge. Hence a pro scription cleik or other employe not having a per mit of a druggist or firm of druggists having a per mit, cannot t-'t-ll liquors under the permit of his em ployer or employers. A final question under this section is: "Can the probate judge exercise the power of revocation gh en by tho new law, upon unoxpired permits gi anted under the old law." Ho can. The permit to sell intoxicating liquors is not n contract. Tho legislature may confer upon the probate judge a power of revocation which did not exist when the permits were granted, and they have conferred just such power in this Instance. Section three of the act of 1881 Is amended by sec tion two of the net of 18&5. The first part of the section is not ch uged by the amendment except that under the circumstances that would authorize tho giving of a prescription, the physician is authonzed to administer the liquor himself. The provisions regarding the affidavit nxiuircd to be made by the physician are omitted, and the methods of violating the law by the physicians are met by a statement of tho circumstances under which they will be deemed guilty of a misd emeanor. The insn alty for such violations is also somewhat changed. Section foud of the act of 1881 is repealed and an altogether now section substituted therefor by sec tion ibree of the act of 1885, The first question you ask upon this section is: "Can a druggist having a permit sell intoxicating liquors upon the written or printed statement of the applicant alone?" It is my opinion that be can. And again, "Can a druggist having a permit sell intoxicating liquors upon a written or printed pre scription without the statement of the applicant?" To this I answer that he cannot. I will state in this connection that a druggist having a permit may oU to a regularly piactioing physician who is en gaged in the practice of his profession any intoxi cating liquors upon bis written or printed state ment alone that said liquors will only be used for medicinal purposes. Your next question. "Are the statements and affi davit required to be filed every thirty days exactly or merely once a month?" In my opinion the legislature contemplated that thorp should be a monthly filing. following in this section are certain amplifica tions of vtnut shall constitute violations thereof, which it will be well to nolico : Every person whose statement so made for the purpose of obtaining In toxicating liquors shall bo false in as; material matter shall bo deemed guilty of a misdemeanor. Every person who shall sell or furnish any of the liquors thereon obtained to otters as a beverage shall be deemed guilty of a misdriveanor. Sections 6 and 6 of the act of 1881, which relate to manufacturers and prescribe the conditions under which liquors may be manufactured for the ex cepted purposes remain unaltered and in full force. Section 7 of the act of 1881 is amended by section 4 of the act of 1835 by inoluding "any person not lawfully and in good faith engaged in the business of a druggist," in the class subjected to the penal ties imposed by this section, which are increased as to first offences by the imposition of a fine and im prisonment instead of a fine or Imprisonment. The Increase of the penalties for second and subse quent violations found in the original section is omitted in the new law. The change in the language of section 8 of the act of 1881 is found in the words, "But nothing herein contained shall be construed to prohibit the making of wine or cider from grapes or apples grown and raised by the person making the same, for his own use or the sale of wine for communion purposes." With reference to the !at clause of this amend ment I will suggest that while it was probably not the intention of the legislature to prohibit the sale of wine for communion purposes, wine, a liquor commonly known as an intox eating beverage, U clearly within the first class mentioned in the intox icating liquor cases, 25 Kan. 751, and within the let ter of the amendment If not within its spirit Section nine of the act of 1881 la amended by sec tion six of the act of 1886. The changes consist of the following additional statement of what shall constitute violations of the section, L e., Or who shall barter or sell the same to any person when he has reason to believe that the person purchasing the liquor is obtaining the same for other than the excepted purposes, although he may have a pre scription or shall have made the statement hereia provided, or who shall sell to any person under the Influence of liquor or wools la toe habit of becosa- mg intoxicated or who shall allow liquor sold as medicine or otherwise to be drank on his premises; the Increase of penalty by imposirg a fine and im prisonment Instead of a fine or imprisonment for forfeiture of his permit and by a forfeiture of the right to obtain a permit for the period of five years. The increased penalties tor 6ubsequait off ensoe are mitteda .. , , . Klght here you further inquire: "Is a druggist, who was convicted under this section before amend ed a dwhe-e permit was de.lared forfeited by the court rendering sentence on each conviction pre cluded from the right to obtain a permit for the period of five years?" ,..,, .(. Under the act of 1S81 for the first violation of this section by any druggist a fine or imprisonment was imposed and in addition thereto the druggist forfeited his permit. For a second offensej there was an increased fine or imprisonment, forfeiture of penalty and forfeiture Jor the period of fixe ytars at his right to obtain a permit. And for a third offense there was with the other penalties an absolute forfeiture of such rightorersr. The section as amended affixed the penalty or forfeitnreof the right to btata a penult for five years to the nut eaTease. The tmtt? Jpr the first violation oRheTaw of 1881 cannoFrJo" ficreased by the law of 1885. A druggist convicted and sen tenced of a "first offen-e" under the law of 1881 would have the right to obtain a permit If that law had remained unchanged. He may therefore be grantee a permit now notwithstanding the change in the law. But druggists who prior to the amendment of the law had been convicted of a second or a third of fense, having already lost the right to obtain a per mit for the period of five years or forever are not relieved from such penalty by the amendment and repeal of the section under which it was imposed. Section ten of the act of 18S1 defining what shall be held to be Intoxicating liquors and section eleven of that act relating to the duration and the renewal of permits to druggists and manufacturers are not amended or repealed. Upon section ten you propound the following: "Doe? the aw intend that prepared medicines con tattling sufficient alcohol to Intoxicate when sold in good faith as medicines and not as beverages snau be sold as intoxicants upon' statement or prescrip tion and statement as In tho case of liquors?" Tho question depends upon a question of fact that they cannot be here determined. The following quotation from the intoxicating liquor casta 25 Kan. 751 will explain what I mean. "If the com pound or preparation be such that the distinctive character and effect of Intoxicating liquors are gone, that its use as an Intoxicating beverage is practically Impossible 1 y reason of the other in gredients it is not within the statute." On the other band if the intoxicating liquor remain as a distinctive force in the compound, and such com pound is reasonably liable to be used as an intoxi cating beverage it is within the statute." The ele ment of Rood faith in the sale does not avail the druggist if the jury decide that the compound falls within the lust mentioned class. If the druggist sells compounded medicines and preparations con taining alcohol without observing the requirements of this act he takes the risk of the jury to whom this question must be submitted in a prosecution for such sale as a violation here of finding this fact against him. The amendments of the act of 1881 by the act of 1885 do not weaken or overturn any of the decisions of the supreme court construing the original act Section 12 of the act of 1881 Is one of the amended sections, but the new section 12 (section 7 of the new law) is substantially the same as the original section so far as it goes, except that the penalty for a violation of its provisions is increased. Section thirteen of the act of 1881 is amended by the section of the same number of the act of 1885. In the new section till of the old section is re-enacted, -with the difference that places where intoxicat ing liquoro are kept for delivery are put under the head of common nuisances, and the word 'use" omitted from tne ue&cripiion of 6uch places. The method of abatement is explained I. e. "By taking possession thereof and destroying all intoxicating liquors found therein together with all signs, screens, bars, bottle, glasses and other property used In keeping and maintaining said nuisance." The penalty Is Increased by the re moval of the alternative of fine or Imprisonment or the imposition of both. The latter part of the new section relating to the Injunction against the maintenance of such nuisances Is new legislation. Sections fourteen, fifteen, sixteen, seventeen, eighteen, nineteen and twenty of the act of 1831 re main unchanged. Section twenty-one of the act of 1881 Is amended by section fourteen of the act of 1885. The changes are that "it shall not be necessary to describe the place where sold, except in prosecu tions for keeping and maintaining a common nuis ance, or where a lien is sought to be established against the place where such liquors were illegally sold," and that "it shall not be necessary in the first instance for the state to prove that the party charged did not have a permit to sell intoxicating liquors for the excepted purposes;" and that "no person shall be excused from testifying touching any offence committed by another against any of the provisions of this act by reason of his testimony tending to criminate himself (the witness); but the testimony given by such person shall in no case be used against him." This is the last section of the act of 1881 that is directly amended or repealed. Sections eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, fifteen, sixteen, seventeen and eighteen of the act of 1835 contain the new features of the law, except the minor novelties introduced in the several amended sections, and which have been fully referred to above. Under section eight you inquire: "Are the ex aminations of the witnesses summoned by the coun ty attorney to be public or private?" Being ex parte hearings and the statute not de cl ring otherwise I am of the opinion that it is in the discretion of the county attorney to conduct such examinations in public or private as may best advance the interests of justice, the county attor ney having power to exclude all persons except tho witness testifying if he sees fit. Under section ten you ask: "What fee Is the county attorney entitled to have taxed as costs in a pro-ecutio'a for a violation of the law committed prior to the enactment of the law of 1885 but pros ecuted, tried and concluded subsequently there to ?" I am of the opinion that he is entitled to the fee provided by the new law. And as a final question It is asked "Do the em ployes of express companies and other common carriers violate any of the provision's of this act by knowingly carrying or delivering intoxicating liq uors shipped into the state from points outside of the state to individuals for their private use." If the liquors are consigned to the individuals to be paid for on delivery, tho common carrier and its employes are tho ageuts of the consignor to com plete the sale, and being a sale in the state for other thnn the excepted purposes and by persons not authorized to make sales for tho excepted pur poses the employes are undoubtedly violating the law and are subject to its penalties. If the deliv eries uro made by such employes to individuals to be sold in violation of tho law, such employes are guilty of the offense prescribed by section seven teen of the act of 1SS5. If tho express 'office is a place where intoxicatiug liquors are kept for delivery in violation of the law, it is declared by section 13 of the act of 1885 to be a common nuisance., and the owner or keeper thereof is liable to conviction of the offence of maintaining a common nuisance, the penalty for which is pre scribed in the section last referred to. Information under section seven of the amended law will be sufficient if in the form used prior to the amendment although in cases where a leiu is not sought to be established against the place where such liquors were illegally sold, it shall not be ne cessary to describe the place where sold. Persons who are not lawfully and in good faith engaged in the business of druggists are brought within this section, and special forms may be necessary in prosecuting them. Information under the nuisance section, in tho form used prior to tho amendment with the change of the word "ue" to "delivery" in cases where the change is applicable, will be sufficient Informations under section nine for violations of the law by persons having a permit by selling in manner or for purposes other than In the act pro vided will be sufficient as used prior to the amend ment In cases whljh come within the amplifica tions of what 6hall constitute offenses under this section, a different statement will be necessary to make the Information suit the exigencies of the ease. A new offense Is prescribed in section four as amended by section three of the act of 1885 for which a new form of Information will probably be necessary. That Is in the prosecution of persons whose statement so made for the purpose of ob taining intoxicating liquors shall be false in any material matter or or who shall sell or furnish any of the liquors obtained te others as a beverage. Your experience will guide you In drafting an in formation to meet the case. Likewise a new form of .Information will be neces sary In prosecutions of a physician under section three, as amended by section two of the act of 1885. Very respectfully, 8. B.
