LIQUOR MEN LOSE
IN COUNT CONTEST DISTRICT JUDGE IN ALEXANDRIA DENIES INJUNCTION, ACT GOING INTO EFFECT. ACT WAS A WAR MEASURE Attorneys For the Defendants Denied That the Act Was Unconstitutional and Cited Authorities To Prove Their Contention. Alexandria.— Judge James Andres, in District Court, at Alexandria refused the rule and denied the injunction sought in a suit brought by the liquor dealers of Alexandria to restrain the sheriff and district attorney from attempting to enforce the provisions of the Coop er twenty-five mile "dry" zone law, recently enacted by the Legislature. The plaintiffs alleged that the act was unconstitutional, in that it violated several articles of the Constitution, that the enforcement of the act would absolutely destroy the property held by them, and will take their property and damage the same, without due process of law, and for public pur poses, without adequate compensa tion, previously paid, in violation of the Constitution of the state and of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. At torneys for the defendant denied that the act was unconstitutional and cited authorities to prove their contention. They also asserted that the act was a war measure, and for that reason its operation should not be interfered with. Harry Gamble, assistant attorney general, apeared in the case on behalf of the state and filed an intervention, containing a number of contentions, the third and fourth paragraphs of which declare that during this time of war, when young men are called away from home and removed from the influence and restraint of the par ental fireside, and the conventions and opinions of their neighbors, all for the purpose of preserving liberty and protecting the state and govern ment it becomes a further duty cf the state to use all legitimate and constitutional efforts to give them th? protection that is demanded of them; that it has been demonstrated dur ing the course of this war, and is the opinion of military leaders, that the most dangerous evil that can approach a camp is liquor, and that its suppres sion is a primary necessity. The in tervention finally prayed for a judg ment in favor of the defendant and intervenor and against the plaintiffs, sustaining and holding as valid and constitutional Act No. 25 of the Gen eral Assembly of 1918. and rejecting the plaintiffs demand at their cost. The plaintiff^ were represented by John R. Hunter of Alexandria and John D. Wilkinson of Shreveport. The defendant was represented by District Attorney T. A. Carter, H. H. White and John C. Blackman.
