more fines The retail liquor dealers association of Brazil recently decided to Investi gate the Sunday closing proposition and discovered that the police are try Ing to enforce it not because of en mity to the saloon keepers but because it is the law of the State They then pondered the alternative of abiding uy the law or breaking the law and enter ing into a ceaseless clash with the au thorities The majority of the members de clared that their business would be benefitted that they could secure re spect from the public and rest for themselves by abiding by the law and keeping closed on Sunday However while the majority were of this mind there remained those who liked best to violate the law and sell on Sunday thus securing in addition to their own the patronage of those customers of the places that remained closed on Sunday This condition worked injustice to the law abiding saloonlst who might well figure that since others opened on Sunday he might as well protect histrade Tliis phase of the situation was in vestigated and those who were In fa vor of closing on in the counsel with those who insisted on keeping open on Sunday and outlined an alternative for the vi olator
