An interesting decision was recent ly delivered by the supreme court of the ststc, effecting tiie local option question. Chinton county, at an elect-1 un held last spring, declared in favor j of local option, which closed all Ihe : saloons and the radical temperance ele- j nient al.o declared that it would also j prevent the drug stores Irom selling liquors on phtsieians' prescription".' A drug dealer in Cameron, in order to test the case, lilted a whisky presenp-j tion and was arrosled. The circuit court decided against him, and a-sess-1 cd a line of about 8:500. He appealed the cise and the decision of the supreme ' court has just been rendered. It was to i the effect that he had a right to fill the prescription, and since it has become! known, drug dealers in local option I counties.who had allowed their tosk of , liquors lo mn out, have laid in a Iresb j Mipply, and are filling prc-cnptious the same as before.
