imported it must be sold in that and the beer could not be sold in single Others have maintained that a or a or or any closed container of the interstate beverage is an original It is how by good

sound legal The liquor was in each case put up by the manufacturer or dealer in another with a view to sales in that The subsequent packing of the bottles in boxes and barrels was a mere matter of convenience in the sale and shipment of the When the defendant pur chased one hundred bottles of either beer or lie in effect purchased that number of packages of the and when he sold by the bottle the transac tion was of the same The fact as a matter of convenience in hand ling during the transportation of the prop the bottles were packed in boxes and can make no difference as to the in of the If be had the right to bring the liquor with in the and to sell it he had the right to adopt such means and mode of shipment as best suited his con venience or interest so far as we are there is no regulation upon the subject of either state or national enact The right to buy and sell in such quantities as he chose is necessarily in cluded in the right to buy and sell in any The right to bring it within the state by the carload is as certain as the right to bring it in by the single bot tle or other If his interest or convenience would be better served by shipping into the state in cars fitted up with or other vessels attached to the and from which the liquor must be drawn at the end of the he had the right iu the absence of statutory regulation to adopt that mode of trans But in that case the liquors on their arrival within the state would of necessity be placed in other vessels than those in which they were brought within the state and the result of the distinction would be while he had the right to bring them within the for the purpose of selling them here having brought them here in exercise of that he had no right to sell them because he had adopted a mode of transportation although perfectly required their removal from the vessels hi which they were The unsoondncss of the attempted distinction is shown by the absurd results to which it would If he had the right to sell the liquors in tie state because the transaction of their purchase and transportation was one of rather than it follows necessarily that he had right to make the sales in whatever or quality he fit Any other hold It seems to would lead to results and conclusions owing to be alike to legal Judgment and the common sense of Three Tkrouts May Ni reached here today o a triple uwnle
