Supt. two for cu case of Sate against Grabac, in which he rendered a verdict against the de fendant and assessed the pet-altv at $300. This decision of the court in volves the right to deliver intoxicants j ing, "E in local option territory. The statute 1 anotho under which Grabac was conviced is section 7227 Revised Statutes of Mis souri 1U0I), and reads as follows: "No person shall keep, store or deliver for or to any person in any county that has adopted, or may hereafter adopt, the local op tion law, any intoxicating liquor of any kind whatever."
