Discretion of Liquor Commis

of Llcenses'-Rlght of Appeal-Restaurants
Following Ih tho Btatrnipnt of Uio
liquor-dealers' position on ponding
legislation to control tho liquor trnf
flco filed with (ho Vh)b anil Means
Committee, of tho Senate:
To the Ilonorahlo the Chnlrm.iti of
the Ways and Means Committed
of tho Sonnto:
It In not tho desire herein to char
acterize any hill concerning tho man
ufacture or sale of Intoxicating liq
uors ob tho "bent" or "worst" ever
presented or legalized as law. TIicbo
rcmarkH nro Intended Bolcly to dis
close tho object of tho proposed
amendments and tho erlls that these,
amendments aro designed to correct.
It la proposed by the amendments
of Sections 4, 24, 2!i and 31, to elim
inate tho discretionary powers ot the
Hoard and placo tho exercise of that
discretion upon tho property-holders
adjoining tho premises to be licensed.
Discretion of Board
re tho discretionary powers of
tho Hoard subject to booio limitation,
the act would In that respect be un
objectionable, but tho leeway for ar
bitrary, unreasonable, and unfair de
cisions In respect to applications for
renewals, suspensions, lr revocations
of, licenses. Is so great as to mako a
person engaged In the manufacture or
sale ot Intoxicating liquors tho mere
puppet of tho Hoard.
Little is known and less appreciat
ed of tho provisions ot tho existing
act. And tho "discretionary" pow
ers of tho Hoard nro Jn themsolves
innple Justification for tho amend
ments proposed In thnt regard.
Section 4 provides thnt each Hoard
within Its own county shall have the
folo power, authority, and discretion
to grant, refuse, suspend, rovoko, reg
ulate, and control licenses tn sell In
toxicating iliquiirs In each county
subject only to tho limitations and
directions contained In tho net. It
Is provided by the snmo section "that
tho exercise of tho power and au
thority . . . vested in tho Hoard
shall be final In each caso and shall
not bo roviewnblo by or appealable to
any court or tribune."
Grant and Refuse
First let its consider tho power "In
grant or refuse" licenses.
In cases of applicants other than
Wear and Hold their Shape
They are correotly tailored of finost pre-ahrunk materials
in the latest styles. They look right and feel right; it's a
comfort to wear them. Sold by
thoso disqualified tinder th,e provis
ions of Section 18, tho Hoard may
grant ono or ono million licenses. It
nay grunt or refuse, guided only by
Its own opinion, whim, or fancy. It
neither assigns nor Is it obliged to
assign any reason for the refusal of
nn application. Its Hinted grounds
for icfusal tlf any nro given), may
bo fnlso and not Its true grounds. Its
powers of discretion nro without lim
itation and whether arbitrary, unrea
sonable, or unfair, there Is no ro
dress. It may grant a license, to ono
person In preference to another with
out reference to any priority In tho
order of filing applications. Its hear
ings aro secret; Its Information may
bo received ex pnrto. It may tako
notice ot any inntter or thing which
In the opinion of a majority of Its
members would be a sufficient objec
tion to tlie granting of a license, it
may consider accusations of which It
is the sole Judge of whether or not
the applicant shall huvn an opportu
nity of answering. The procedure
upon an application for or rcuowal ot
n license, depends entirely upon tho
gracious discretion of tho Hoard. No
method of representation Is provided
by the net and can bo refused by the
Hoard. No method of cross-examination
of a protester Is provided, nor
admitted. An applicant may bo
charged with a felony and cither bo
In Ignoranco of It (it having been re.
eclved by tho Hoard ox parto) or
knowing of It be denied an opportu
nity of cither provlngttho falsity of
tho charge or catechising tho inform
ant. Such nro the coudltlons tinler tlm
discretionary powers of tho Hoard "to
grnnt or refuse" licenses, nnd to such
conditions nn applicant for a llconso
Is called upon to submit. Upon the
Hoard rests tho exclusive sovereign
grnco to grnnt or refuse licenses.
However erroneous Its decisions, how
ever nrbltrnry and unreasonable or
unfair Its reasons, Its decision Ik
final and binding nnd tho nppllcant
has neither appeal nor redress.
The act provides n method of local
option depending upon tho desires of
adjoining property holders. Fnlluro

I "or" ''? three blllH on tho order of
tbo day for third reading, and tho
membtrs wero afraid of two of them
and slid out from under deferring ac
tion until some future dny. That
measure of Nakaleka's boosting the
pay of road laborers gives rome of tho
'Representatives the shivers every tlmo
J It bobs up. They don't want to pass It
and they aro afraid to kill It. So thoy
rrocrastliMlo, hoping that something
will happen to help them out of thu
disagreeable hole thn find themselves
Thcro Is going to be fun when tho
various tax bills como up for flnnl con
1 slderatlon. Cohen hates the very Idea
1 of an Income, tax and Is ready to fight
anything that oven suggests tho ob
noxious principle. On the other hand,
thero are several members of tho
.llouso who believe that tho only way
o keep tho country from going to thu
bow-wows Is for tho legislature to
baso all taxntlon on tho Income tax
principle. When these two fornces
como together In conflict, tho fur Is
bound to fly. Cohen took his first shot
this morning hen ho heaved brick
at tho (lUvt-rnur'H con.,crvatloii.and Im
migration bill, which Is b.u,ed on an
luromo tax. Ho lost tho first sklrm

eager to meet thu enemy again.
The Hoodoo Bill,
Nakalcka's hoodoo hill No. 35, lo

which has had many vicissitudes, wus
once more on tho order of tho day this
morning. There Is a hoodoo on tho
measure, though. Tho mombcrs ot
tho llouso seem to bo afraid of It. The
Know it Is foolish to pass tho bill, jet
of tncm BrB afraid to go on roc-
ord ns opposing it. So thoy keen nut

Karuahu asked that his amendment
