There wer 26 democrats and 17 republicans voting for the refer endum. iMid 2 2 democrats and 21 re publicans voMnj; against it Most of! the republicans of the so-called pro gressive croup voted against it. For the bill itself there were 2 8 democratic and 27 republican votes with 22 democrats and 10 republic ans against it. All of the progres sives voted for passage. The prohibiting lanjruatfe of the bill says that after Nov. 1: No person, or persons, or any house, company, association, club, or corporation, his. its or their agents, otticers. clerks or servants, directly or indirectly, shall, in the district of Columbia, manufacture for sale or -rift, import for sale, offer for sale, keep for sale, t rattle in, barter, ex port, ship out of the district of Co lumbia or exchange for goods or merchandise, or solicit, or receive orders for the purchase of any al- oholie liquors for beverage pur pose.s or for any other than scien tific, medicinal, pharmaceutical, me chanical, sacramental or other non Leverage purposes." fxH-kcr System Irbltlle. Another section says the measure shall not bo construed to prevent "the manufacture, importation, ex portation or eale" of denatured, methyl alcohol or other methyl al cohol for scientific, medicinal and like purposes, but their manufacture und sale are. limited to licensed drticctsts or manufacturers. The so-called locker system is specifical ly forbidden. All common carriers bringing in toxicants into the district are re quired to keep a record of the ship per and consignee, who must make affidavit that they are for personal i se. The law declares that no prop erty rights shall exist in alcoholic :ijuors illegally manufactured or rought into the district, makes pvery place that violate the law a "common nuisance" and gives the right to any citizen to sue to enjoin -uch nuisance. Heavy penalties are provided for uolations. including a provision limed ;tt physicians who prescribe liquor for patients without cause. A. right to sue for damages from the person who sells lirpior to a person who is injured "in person or proper ty" in .onequenco f mtorkatlon is given to blood relatives. Kfforts to absolutely forbid man ufacture in the district and export from it were beaten without a rec ord vote. An amendment by h'en. I'helan, which would permit sale of "wine, ale, beer and porter." also was defeated. Uttlo iKhatc on Bill. The vote was preceded by little debate on its terms, but many ex planations were given by senators of tht-lr reasons for voting for and against the Underwood referendum amendment. Under the agreemen for the vote today sneerhes were I limited to a few minutes. There was evident a npirit of bitterness on the part of many senators and a feeling of tension that was only broken a few times when amend ments were offered or suggestions made that the senate and galleries thought humorous. The crowd was particularly pleased with an amend ment proposed by Sen. Martine to forbid the use or manufacture of to bacco in any form in the district. There were loud laughs when it was read by the clerk and once again when, after Sen. Heed had made a technical point against it. the New Jersey senator remarked, "I know you're against it, you chew tobacco.'
