Believed That Governor Will
Allow Bills to Die.
TKENTON, April 25.—Although Gov
ernor Wilson has given no oilicial in
formation on the subject, it was
rumored at the fatale iiou-e today that
Assembly bills 92 and 511, the liquor
measures which are op ed by the
church people, will be uinong those
filed In the "morgue” In the State
Library as, dead because of lack of
executive approval.
Assembly 92 makes it a misdemeanor
for any minor to obtain liquor by rep
resenting himself to be more than 21
years of age. The church people claim
that the bill is so stringent that it will
make it extremely difficult to prosecute
saloon-keepers who sell to minor*.
The other measure permits wholesale
liquor dealers to deliver liquor In other
localities than that for which the li
cense was issued. This would permit
the delivery of intoxicating liquor In
"dry" territory In this State, and it Is
this provision which has aroused the
temperance people strenuously to op
pose the bill.
Governor Wilson will devote a day
to public hearings on bills In his hands
and It may be that these will be in
cluded among those on which a heal
ing is given, but it was said today that
neither of these measures would be
come laws.
