The Herald and News has been re
quested by the chairman of the exec
utive committee, Mr. G. F. Long. to
publish the two extracts which fol
low. The f;r-t a part of a ,ection ot
the Brice Act under which it is pro
posed to vote out the dispensary.
The other is the article of the consti
tutios of the state with reference to
the manner in which the legisitirc
may regulate the sale ofiir or h it
may prohibit the sale of liquor. It
will be seen that under ,<he constitu
tion the legislature cannot authorize
a municipal corporation to issue a
In regard to the Brice Act The
Herald and News published it in full
just before the mass meeting was
held t.. consider the question of get
ting up petitions to ask the supervisor
to order the election. There are two
provisos to this section which we are
asked to print which should be print
ed with it but .which are left off the
copy furnished. It is well to let the
people know the full meaning of what
they do. One is that when the dis
pensary is voted out at the same time
you vote a one half mill tax on all the
taxable property in tihe county to be
used by the governor in his discretion
in enforcing the law. In case he does
not use it it goes back to the county.
The other proviso is that the county
voting out the dispensary is not to
share in the profits from the state
for the school fund.
It is well to give all tihe information
and let the people understand fully
just what they are doing.
The state teachers' association
passed a resolution at -heir annual
convention la-st week in favor of com
pulsory education and appointed a
committee to present the matter be
fore the legislat :re.
