The prohibition amendment and the enforcement act were held consti tutional by the supreme court last week in a unanimous decision. While the attorneys for the inter ests attacking the two measures were granted permission to file mo tions for rehearings, the decision was regarded generally as striking a death blow to hopes of the "wets." The court's opinion rendered In justice Van Venter, was sweeping. It held the amendment not only came within the amending powers confer red bv the federal constitution, but was lawfully proposed and was the law of the land. While recognizing that congress has limitations in respect to the enforcement of laws regarding beverages, the court held those limits were not transcended in the enactment of the enforcement act restricting alcoholic content of in toxicants to one-half of 1 per cent While New York, New Jersey and Wisconsin acts permitting manufac ture and sale of beverages of more than one-half of 1 per cent alcoholic content were not directly involved, the decision was interpreted as inval idating them. The court said the first section of the amendment of its by congress by a legislature or by a territorial '"SI ^'i' .. y:f^v 'T'p^ 'TH1L10N RBfOETM, THURSDAY, JUNE 17, 1920 ,||^ ^||lf^^ 77MS should catch every eye assembly—which authorizes or sanc tions what the section prohibits." Concurrent power granted by the amendment to federal and state governments to enforce prohibition, the court further held, "does not enable congress or the several States to deftiat or thwart prohibition, but only to enforce it by appropriate means." The decision of the court was set forth in eleven conclusions covering seven separate proceedings. These proceedings including original suits brought by the state of Rhone Island, directly nttacking the constitutional ity of the amendment. While agreeing to the validity of the amendment and enforcement act, Justices McKenna and Clarke dis sented from tlie majority interpreta tion of the concurrent power of federal and state governments to en force prohibition. Chief Justice White held that the court should set forth the reasoning for its decision. He did this in a supplementary opin ion. Justice McReynoWs, in a brief statement declared he was of the opinion that it was impossible to say at this time what construction should be given to the amendment. He add ed that because of "the bewilderment which the amendment creates," he preferred to remain free to consider the multitude of questions which will'"inevitably arise and demand solution." The decision set at rest conten tions previously laid before the court that the amendment could not affect alcoholic liquors manufactured prior 30*3% Goodyear Double-Cure $-7 '150 Fabric, All-Weather Tread. 30x3V4 Goodyear Single-Cure -t 50 Fabric, Anti-Skid Tread— A osaoi Goodyear Advantages in Tire: for the Smaller Cars il [OESOl [QX to January 16th when the amend ment became effective. The court held that the amend ment applied to such liquors the same as to any produced after that time. Regarding arguments that a state having constitional referendum pro visions could not have been said to have ratified the amendment until It had been submitted to the voters, the court cited its opinion rendered last" Mopday in the Ohio referendum cases, in which it held that such ref erendum provisions do not apply to federal amendments. Only one prohibition case of im portance remains undecided. It is an appeal from New York involving the constitutionality of tlie portions of the enforcement act prohibiting storage in warehouses of intoxicat ing liquors designed for personal use. This case was argued this spring, but with the court's adjournment to day for the summer cannot be decid ed before October at the earliest.
