San Antonio. Tex., Oct. 2i. A spec
ial from Austin recently saya:
A new way to enforce prohibition
came to light today and It was
made possible under the Fltzhugb-Rob-ertson
liquor regulation law limiting
the number of saloons In each precinct
one to each 6000 inhabitants.
After having been dry for some time
Palrfild precinct. In Freestone county
went wet a few weeks ago, and almost
Immediately applications for iiermlts
were filed with the comptroller for
the maximum number of saloons al
lowed In the precinct. Subsequently
there were more applications, and the
comptroller refused them, advising
that the precinct had secured all the
licenses to which It waa entitles!.
The disappointed applicants replied
that no saloons bad been opened and
that the' applications were taken by
prohibitionists who resorted to that
method to continue prohibition.
It Is a fact that the licenses have not
been taken out. and no money bas been
deposited for the licenses, but the ap
proval of the applications has stopped
the approval of additional applications
which would call for more licenses.
In this way the saloon men are block
ed without the payment of license
