This census must show not only the I number of white male and female | Citizens over the age of 21 years with 1 in a radius of two miles of Juneau or Douglas, as the cose may be, but it I must also show the name, occupation, and place of residence of each person.1 If any names which ought to appear' in said census are omitted therefrom, they will be inserted by order of the j court, after proper showing is made, i and likewise names may be stricken 1 ! out, if they ought not to appear. it is not for the court to say in ad vance that it will not accept a census taken by any person. It may or it; may not acept that census, but in or ! der that you may not be entirely as. one striking in the dark, I will say that a census taken by any one of the fol lowing named gentlemen will be ac-; cepted by the court as prima t'aeie correct and complete, to-wit: Juneau?Joe Snow. J. W. Bell Allen Shattuck, and ,M. Sabin. " 1.1 Douglas?J- f ? aicuuuuiu, nuun Bach, George Dusing. and John Hen | son, Jr. With whomsover is selected, you must make your own terms us to com pensation. and the person selected is1 not to he considered as an employee of the court or of the government. Majority Controls Situation. When you have taken this census I you have still to satisfy the court that majority of the citizens whose names appear on said census report, i or are afterwards inserted by order , of the court, are in favor of the manu facture and sale of liquor. This you may do as has been done j in the past, that is, you may employ j any one to procure signatures to the consent, but the person so consenting must sign his name and give his oc cupation and residence, so that his identity in the consent paper may be checked as against his identity on the j census list. Census and Consent Yearly Neither the taking of the census nor | the consent of the majority that li quor may be manufactured or sold need be done but once in each twelve j months. That is to say each person proposing to engage in the business will not have to have a separte cen su* and consent in his individual case. The court considers that the law means that once in every twelve months it shall be shown whether or not a majority of the citizens of any given place are in favor of liquor be ing sold, and that it is not meant that each individual proprietor should se cure that consent in his individual case. OOUri s ricsponsioiinics. Of course the mere fact that a ma jority of the people may have con sented to the sale of liquor in Juneau does not mean that every person who applies for a license is going to get it; the court will still scrutinize the application for a license under that census and that application must com ply strictly with the other require ments of the law. The matter of granting a license to a particular per son or to any particular place will still he in the discretion of the court, and the protest ot any person con cerned will he given proper consider ation. as heretofore. Saloons Must Observe Laws. 1 wish to call your attention also to the requirements of the law, that there must not he conducted, main tained, or permitted, any gambling, dunce hall, or bawdy house on or in connection with the premises nor shall any female or minor he allowed in or about the premises where li quor is sold or served. And the law further provides that the applicant receiving a license, must promise in his application, that he will i not permit any of those things to be done or instituted on or about the premises; and, it further provides, that should it appear to the District Judge at any time after the granting , of the license, that the applicant has ' permitted those things to be done, I contrary to his promises made, it shall j be the duty of the Judge to forthwith enter an order revoking the license and all license moneys deposited by , the applicant shall be forfeited. That law also provides that under | the licefise no Intoxicating liquors shall be sold, given, or in any way dis posed of to any minor, Indian, or in \ toxicated person, or to an habitual drunkard; and. that if any person vio lates the provisions I have called your attention to he is liable to he ar rested and convicted, and if there is ; a second conviction for violation of , the license he can never thereafter be granted a license. | In regard to minors the law is very . strict. You must not sell to any per ' son under 21 years of age, and you I must exclude from your place of busi ness any person under 16 years of age unless he have the consent of his , parents or guardian. Character of Employees. I also call your attention to the fact that the law provides that any person to whom a license is granted shall not employ or permit to be em ployed, or allow any female or minor or person convicted of a crime to sell give, furnish or distribute any intoxi cating drinks or admixture thereof. In conclusion, gentlemen, I wish to say that the law recognizes the liquor business as legitimate under certain circumstances, and the liquor business and every other business must recog nize the law as supreme. The law is supreme whether the liquor business recognizes it or not. So long as a majority of the people are willing that liquor shall be manu factured or sell it without violating the law you have nothing to fear. Gambling Is Forbidden. The laws of Congress are against gambling and gambling will not be permitted; they are against selling li quor to minors, Indians, or intoxicated persons, and they are against the em ployment of women in. or about sa loons. and those things will not be per mitted. ?1"M I I I I II I 1 1 I I I II'111 l-l l"l l i r It is the duty of every person to in-! form himself us to whut is und what is not against the law. If the law be violated the court is commanded to cancel the license. The court must! obey the law or it is in no position i to insist that others obey it. The law is binding on all: the Governor, the! Judge, the .Mayor, as well as other citizens and none can disobey it with out incurring the penalty. Court Governed by Satute. The passing on applications for li quor licenses or licenses to carry on any other business, except the prac tice of the profession of law, is not usually considered to be a judicial function. In 110 jurisdiction except that of Alaska, that 1 am aware of, has this responsibility been cast upon j the courts; but in Alaska, by the act 1 of Congress, the entire matter of pass ing upon applications for such licenses and the supervision of the licensees I devolves upon the courts, and how ever, reluctant the latter may be to assume those duties, yet the course to be pursued has been specifically marked out by the lawmaking power, and will be strictly complied with so far as the court' is concerned. 0?o?0 OWEN JAY LOOLEN IS IN JUNEAU ?o-o?

Martin was the subject matter of an item appearing in The Empire Friday evening, has been located in Juneau He has been regularly employed here for several months on Ed. Webster's pile driver.
