'Editor and Business Manager GEO. A. SMITH, Thursday, February 19, 1920. LIQUOR LAW DETAILS. Showing Operation of National Amend ment; Druggist Being Informed The internal revenue department's announcement relative to the national prohibition law, stating that liquors and wines for medicinal purposes can lie sold through drug stores on permit of physicians, the druggists are now receiving information on the law from the Druggists' Wholesale Supply cor poration of California, regarding the 'handling of liquors for medicinal pur pom n. The letter from the wholesale supply house follows: "We are sending this letter to you to inform you of the changi's that have taken place since January 16, when the national prohibition act, or the eighteenth amendment to the con stitution of the United States, became part of the fundamental law of the land. "Just as the national prohibition has superseded the liquor laws of the state of California, Just so It super sedes the liquor laws of all other states. While In the stat of Cali fornia It has had the effect of tight ening everything up, It has had di rectly the opposite effect In all the other western states, insofar as it concerns the purchase, sale and transportation of liquors for non-bev erage use, "Tbe national amendment specifical ly orders the enforcement laws of all the states to be made concurrently with the enforcement law of the United States, so It must necessarily follow that the Uquor laws of all the states will be standardized. "Under the national prohibition: 'No persons shall on or after the date when the eighteenth amendment to the constitution of the United States « ops into effect, barter, furnish or possess any intoxicating liquor except aB authorized in this act, and all the provisions of this act, ahall be liberally construed to ' the end that the use of Intoxicating liquor as a beverage may be prevented.' manufacture, sell transport, import, deUver, "Liquor for non-beverage and win« for sacramental may lie manufactured, aold, exported, punaises purpoees purchased, bartered, transported, imported, delivered, furnished and Possessed, but only as herein provid ed, and the commissioner application, issue permits therefor.

"When he has received this permit, lie may deal in liquors and whies for medicinal or non-beverage use as the law provides. "To obtain a permit to si'll liquors and wines for medicinal or non-bev erwage use, it Is neci'ssary to qualify therefor by filing with the prohibition enforcement officer of the state in which the business is to be conducted, an application for a permit in tripli cate, to be approved by the commis sioner of Internal revenue and a bond in duplicate, to be approved by the prohibition enforcement officer of the state. "The bond may be in any amount from $1,000 to $100,000. "The basis, of the penal sum of the bond covering the use of non-bev cragw liquors is $1.20 lier the 100 proof gallon, on the quality of liqours Which will be received during any three months period, plus the amount on lion-beverage spirits ou hand at the end at the preceding period. "The penal sum of the bond cover ing wines Is computed at the rate of $100 for each 200 gallons of wine or fraction thereof received In the same period. "The bond on non-lieverage spirits is, arrived at by subtracting the tax on the non-beverage spirits, which Is $2.20 per gallon, from the tax on bev erage spirit, which was $6.10 per gallon for the bond. "The bond on wines has been ar bitrarily fixed as above. "No limit Is placed on your re quirements except the bond you give "The bonding company makes a charge of $2.50 per thousand for each $1,000 th^ underwrite, with a mini mum charge of $5. "P. S.—The department has made I a new ruling whereby physicians may prescribe liquor for medicinal use upon any kind of a blank form until such time as they are able to get the regulation blank forms from the gov ernment." -V VAST BANKING RESOURCES. Statistics Show Banking Resources of Nation to be $46,763,225,836.80. The National Association of Super visors of State Banks has just issued a statement of the banking resources of all state lianks and trust oomiiauies based on the call report of June 30, 1919, or the call nearest to that date. Ill the 48 states there are 21.028 of tliese institutions, with total resources of $25,966,675,836.30. As of the same date, the tall of the Comptroller of the currency shows 7705 national banks with total resources of $20,71*9,550.000. The full banking resources of the na tion at that time, therefore, amounted to the vast sum of $46,765,225,886.30 Only within the last two years have official statistics la>en available for the computation of the resources of state banks. For this reason tile public has mit realized the full strength of our state tanking institutions, doubtless 1*> a revelation to most iieo ple that the resources of the state in stitutions exceed those of the national tanks by $5,166,125.836.30. year ended June 80, 1919, tlie growth It will For the pt the state institutions in the U. S. amounted to $3,600,571,602.41, and that of the nationals to $2,550,580,000. THROWING LIGHT ON N. P. L. FINANCES. Boise, Idaho, Feb. 14—The report of the auditor of the national Nonparti san I/eegue, Mr. Frost, who was sent from North Dakota to Nampa to in vestigate the financial condition of the Nonpartisan publication which has t*een in charge of W. G. Sholtz, was n.ude public the other day much to the annoyance of not only Sholtz but of Ray McKaig and all the other Non partisan League editors, managers and organizers, who have been imported from North Dakota. They were evi dently surprised when it was made publie as they had kept it a profound W—Ifct. The report showed that the publish ing company referred to had gone in the red around $15,000 in the few months it had lieen in operation and that there had been considerable lul ling of the stock, liberty bonds, etc. by those In charge. Mr. Frost's con clusions, based on the figure he repre sented, constitute a severe arraignment of the entire management and no ply bas been made thereto excepting a few words from Sholtz, who content ed himself with calling Mr. Frost a re liar. The report of Mr. Frost is the first information that members of the Lea gue have had as to the financial con ditions of the publishing concern and it has aroused a further suspicion in the minds of members of the league, coupled as it is with other evidence somewhat' along the same line. It Is recalled by members of tbe league that wRh this one exception no satisfactory accounting has ever been made to them as to the expendi ture of the moneys collected from the members. SEED OATS.
