FOR FACTS AND FIGURES
Ms 'attention has been called to a nfews item which appeared-in the Bemidji"?
Da'irjr pioneer a (few days aigo, in which an Eleventh Street Merchant was quoted as
sa*yitfff "9hold thie saloons be voted out several thousand dollars would have to
:he returned' to "the lioense holders, tout where is"that money to be obtained?". A few
^day there^ft^r Jny attention was called to edHorial
V^votedHlut about^$10,00!0'may have to ne returned to the licenee (holders. If the?-
y^Elwenjfch Street MerchaMt and the Bemidji Daily Plidneer were correct in what they
iiave said, the city migfcft, 'beforevoting out the saloons,- be called upon to consider
the matter with some seriousness, but the Eleventh Street Merchant and The Be-.\
'C midJiDailyrPioneer have been^ andsihformed and their utterances have, as a conse-
:,:^quen^te flni^gjrfded some of pureitizens, un1familiar with such matters, into believing*"'
Ithat |nieh^pt ,bf the license fee as corresponds to the time such license may have yet'
to ru%^mig*t*nave to ibe returned, when aUch license is revoked .by reasons of the
plaeei ^wMch he operates going dry.
The provisions of our law relating to the annullanent of liquor licenses and re-
^fundmtnit^^liquor license feels reads as follows:
S. Minn. 191*. "31*50. Licenses, ihoW annulledEvery liquor license shall"
th deaith of th licensee.
2^ By the saleofiiqilor becoming unlawful in the place "for which such liquor
W^en-igranted by a county board, by the subsequent inclusion of the place
for %*ilchik was granted wfithin a municipality.
Waum cases, and in no other, such part of the licensed fee as corresponds to the
time~sjich (tteense had yet to run may *e returned."
1^ ca#B^Bemidjf votes dry, then, the sale of liquor will become unlawful in this
city, and $b a conseajuenoe, iiquor licenses will became annulled by operation of law.
Th^^ieMion is, supposing ^Bemidji goes
rotm-nito the saloon keepers such parts of ^heir license1
pert8d|1mehlicenses may yet have to run at the "time of sucn election? This leads us
to place a o^nstructlbn upo the meaning the following^portionof the above quoted.

CourV-andRs meaning is forever settled. The case in which the court expressed it-
self upon this (matter will be found in 115 Minn. Reports. 66, and is entitled, Bend-
er v. Oity of Fergus Falls.- Imthat case
Bender wS* duly licensed to deal in
intoxicating, liquors by the common council of the city of^Fergus Falls. Subsequent
to granting the Wcense an election was held in Whe city, at which the question
whether licensestfor*the -sale of liquors should be rat5d was sutbmitted to the
electors, resulting in a majority vote against license. The saloonkeeper's license
became thereby, by operation of law,--reyoked.He closed hlis place of business, and
thereafter presented to the city council aciaii for a return of that portion of the
license fee covering the period subsequent to the election. The council returned a
part of tine amount claimed, and refused to refund the balance, amounting to $516.06.
The saloonkeeper thereupon brought an action ito recover that amount. The court
held tfiat 'lie had no cause of actionno claim against "tne cityand could not,
therefore, irecover from the city, for the reason that the language contained in the
statute above referred to, namely, "In such cases, and in no other, such part of the
licenee teel&s corresponds the time such license had yet to run onay be returned,"
vestettsin the city authorities discretionary authority only. So that, in case Bemidji
votes dry eft the coming election, it will be optional with the city to pay to the saloon-
keepera of the oity such parts of the license fees as corresponds to the periods such
licenses may yet have to run at the time of the election, and if the city decides to
refuse to refund, the saloonkeepers will be unable to compel the city to pay. There is
no "may h|tve to" about it. The city cando as it pleases.
When #ne takes out a license to retail intoxicating liquor, he takes the chance
of being thrown out of business by a dry election and -of.'losing a portion of his li-
