When the bill rc-enacting the gallon

"How much liquor is necessary for
an ordinary person a day?" was a
question discussed in the senate dur^
ing the debate on this bill. Senator
Patterson suggested four tablespoonfuls
a day but Senator Carlisle disclaimed
the ability to qualify as an

Yorncr I suary Bill Passed.
The illicit liquor seller and the
banker who evades the law by cliadgir.g
usury were yoked together by
Senior Verner, who wants all such '
violators stin to the chaingang, as- (
setting they would make "a beautiful |
rnir." The Oconee senator said the j i
governor was enforcing the law< |
aga;' T iiquor selling, but wanted to
know what he was doing on enforcing i
other laws. He charged that bankers I
who violate the law by charging usurious
rates of interest were at rhe top _
socially. The Oconee senator was J
debating his bill to prohibit the charging
of a greater rates of interest than J
allowed by law. '
