It will be remembered that the St. Iiouis Court of Appeals, by j Its opinion in the Retornaz case, de cided that tho local option election, held on March 7th last, was void as to the city of Farmlngton, for the reason that the census of Farming ton was tuken In time for theCounty Court to have taken judicial notice I that the city had over 2,.'ilMI Inhabitants. When tho Court of Appeals' man date (opinion) arrived, the attor neys for John Wilkson, who had been Indicited on Information of the Prosecuting Attorney for violating the local option law outsideof Farm lngton, filed a motion to quash the information for the reason that the local option election was void and of no effect. Judge Kitliuu hoard the evidence in this motion on last Saturday, which consisted of all the record of tho County Court and the City of Farmlngton that had any reference to the local option election, and the census of Farming ton; and, after the argument, sus tained the motion and quashed the Information, thereby nullifying tbe election outside of Farmlngton; but In passing upon it, stated, "Thl doe not necessarily authorize the County Court In granting dramshop license to any one." This, In effect, make the county wet" In the Circuit Court, but "dry" In tihe County Court. It pre vent any one from being luccess fully prosecuted In the Circuit Court for an alleged violation of the local option law, and at the same time prevent the granting of dramshop license, or In other word "breeds blind tigers," and then insure to the "tiger" a legal '-Immunity bath". It would have been much better had the question been finally and unquestionably decided one way or the other. A BOUQUET FOH US. Mr. J. F. Lee, cashier of the Peo ple's Bank at Benton, Ark., former ly of this county, In renewing his subscription writes: "1 nm always glad to get The Times.
