to be pursued is at the discretion of the
court under whose jurisdiction the
liquor is brought, according to an opin

City Attorney Patrick Tammany of the
corporation counsel's department.
Mayor Hanson request ed the corpo

method that should be pursued in the
destruction of ceitain intoxicating

session of the chief of police, pursuant
to lawful seizure under the search

The exact method of destruction, the
opinion says, is not specified in the
ordinance nor is the per.-on designated
who should carry out the order, but as
the ordinance and state statute pro
vide that the peace officer serving the
search warrant shall seize the intoxi

such officer would presumably be the
