"  The Original New York Casino Theatre Company  INCLUDING  Tjij> Wyllie local option bill has been ^gbrted favorably to the California Assembly from the committee on public' morals, and there is sufficient reason to anticipate its passage, make ïfa,provisions a matter of very timely interest. A copy of the bill received by the ECHO bears on its back the following printed summary of its provisions:  The purpose of this bill is to enable the people of any city, or • of any county outside of cities, by direct vote to absolutely prohibit the j local sale of alcoholic liquors for| beverage purposes and yet not inter- J fere with their proper use. Thej provisions of the bill are as follows: j When 25 per cent of the voters in j any incorporated city or in that part! of any county outside of incorporât-j ed cities ask for a vote on their lo-j cal liquor license question, it must' be granted. This vote may be at! either a special or general election,; but the question cannot be voted on! in the same territory oftener than i once in two years. If at such elec- j tion the majority do not favor li- :  Saturday, January '  mm  m  liüilll'l  -Weill's - j- Weill's. - Weill's - ]  ÎL  cense, sixty days later the city or j county in which the election wag j held becomes no-license territory. In | such territory it is made unlawful to J sell, give away or solicit orders for alcoholic liquors, except as provided.  The first exception refers to private homes. These are exempted, ] not because drinking there is ap-l proved, but because men are loath| to have their private homes even' seem to be under police surveillance. |  To avoid any possibility of this the '  i  exception here was made. j  pure alcohol. This is properly used for so many purposes other than drinking andrJa : osg; seldomfuseesas a beveridge, that-Jfruggistk ;are permitted to sell, it uiidfer the same conditions as now attach to the sale of many other poisons.  The last exemption; has to do with wineries and breweries. They are not prohibited from manufacturing vinous and malt liquors, receiving orders for such liquors and shipping the same; provided they are not delivered to any person or place in no-license territory.  h In other words so long as prohibition is not the policy of the state, we do not ask that any one city or county be allowed to put out of operatiort an expensive plant which was ndver dependent upon that community for the chief part of its trade. So long as there is a legitimate market for its products in other parts' of the state, or elsewhere, it may continue to manufacture and ship to such .places. But it shall not be allowed to sell for local delivery in dny city or county where the majority are opposed thereto. This would mean that "doggeries," running under the guise of wineries, Would be put out of operation, while bona fide factories would not be" interfered with except as to local p-ade.  Under this bill, once a place has voted dry, it remains so for two years, and thereafter until 25 per cent of the voters ask for another election and at such election the majority vote in favor of license. All through the bill the liquor men get a square deal, and even they cannot  Dress Goods the Center of  We. have planned one of the big Dress Events of the season.
