Attorneys For the Defendants Denied
That the Act Was Unconstitutional
and Cited Authorities To Prove
Their Contention.
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
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.
