A liquor seller was tried in Cincinnati, before Judge Van Hnmin, Tuesday, and a decision render ed which places the State Liquor Law in singulur snd effective force. Being o jury trial, Judge Vann Hamm charged that such a thing as a legal agent in a criminal matter could nut be no mat could in contempla tion of law employ another to do an act which wis in violation of law. It could not, therefore, be held that a partv indicated un- der this Liquor Law wa innocent because lie was employed by a principal. Both prin cip.il and agent would be liable, and they might be bojj prosecuted under ihe mine indictment, the ufTeiire being ouch a one as might be jointly committed. The law pro vidos that it shall be unlawful fur any per aon to sell intoxicating drinks, and that in eludes everybody. It was not necessary that the nale of any particular kind of intoxi cating liquor should be pruved. The simple quciiliun being wether intoxicating liquors had been sold. Under this first section of the law one selling was sufficient; but under the fourth e clion us to wh.'lher this wss a place of public resort, a single selling would not moke the place a nuisance And if in this case they should come ti the conclusion that the defendant wai simp y a bar keeper, the question might arise, whether ho could be convicted under this fourth section. The instruction of tlie Court was that such a pnr ty, having control of the establishment, would be considered in the eye of the law a keeper of the concern, and might be convic ted under this fourth section. The jury were out but twenty-five minuter when a verdict of guilty was rendered.
