JJRASTIC ANTI SEEMS SURE IMeasuret of Fir Reaching Import Can Be Oefeited Only by Veto of of Governor it v Austin Texas February traffic legislation and regulation of the most drastic variety is r v occu pying the attenlion of the lawmakers aind there is absolutely no doubt but that the measures now under consider ation will pass bul as the governor lias the final say these drastic meas ures may never become laws The Kennedy liquor bill now under con sideration in the house Is Ihe mosl piece of liquor legislation ever attempted by the legislature The bill not attempt to repeal any ot the present laws but regulates the saloons to such an eitent that it is destined to put many ot the saioonmen out of business The bill covers every fea ture of the saloou business and thus all efforts to seriously amend the bill has proved futile Indeed there ts a disposition on the floor of the feouse to make the act stronger The or Ihis bill which is be ing considered serially occupied Ibe enlire time of the house last afternoon when the house reconvened It is impossible to tell of tho var ious provisions of this bill because at conlains more Ihan fifty pages One of the alringenl provisions is lhat a saloonkeeper should he desire to business is not permitled lo as sign or transfer his license another provides that a wholesale liquor deal er is prohibited from renting premises to a retailer to conduct a saloon The clubs are also under the ban as the effort lo exempt them proved Unavailing The bill says lhat these shall not be granted n license and it they are found selling intoxicat liquor without it the officers or of such a club shall be se verely punished The bill when finally passed in the ionise will be sent lo Ihe senale for and it is practically certain it will pass that body which has a safe pro majority While the bouse is en gaged on ihis measure the senate with no opposition passed to third reading the oclock closing law This bill however is favored by the antis and is recommended by the gov Following closely the passage of this bill Senators Nugent and Col lins introduced a bill to prohibit brew eries from leasing properly to persons in the retail liciiior business loaning money for the purchase of li quor licenses or furnishing funds tor person to enter the retail liquor Srasiness This is not all the liquor legislation any means There is the bill Vy Representative Levelling providing Tor statutory prohibition in Texas which has already been reported on favorably by the house committee on liquor and liquor traffic This bill will also pass in the house despite the opposition of the antis II is how ever certain lhat Ihe governor will veto this measure should it reach him He has repeatedly announced that he does not propose to prohibi tion on any part of the state in which the people are iu favor ot having sa loons lie has no objection to local option but has to a statewide affair PLACEDO POINTERS Placedo Texas February do and surrounding
