Will Also Ask Congre«« to Modify
Volstead Act in Favor
Of 2.75 Beer
- ■ I "...
Baltimore, Md.—Re pres e n tative John
Phillip HR! of Baltimore was acquitted
by « Jury in the United States court of
violating the Volstead law by manu
facturing intoxicating wtae and rider
at hit home.
The fifth and sixth counts of the In
dictment. which charged Colonel Hill
with maintaining a common nuisance
at his home, were dismissed under in
structions from Judge Morris A- Sop
er, who presided at the trial.
The trial was the result of a test
case forced by Colonel Hill, who main
tained the Volstead law gave the farm
er a right to manufacture cider and
wine, but withheld from the city man
the right to manufacture beer.
The trial brought from Judge Soper
the opinion that the clause of the Vol
stead act defining beverages of more
than one-half of one per cent alcoholic
content at Illegal did not apply to
home-made wines and elder, providing
the product I» non-Intoxicating "In
Representative HIM declared after
the verdict that the finding gave him
an opportunity to go before congress
and demand modification of the Vol
stead act and the passage of hla 2.79
per cent beer bill on the ground that
the Volstead act in Its pressât form,
discriminates and is unfair.
