HOME RULE LAW
Decision in Joseph Case
OOESN'T AFFECT MADRAS
Judge Knowles Holds That City Must
Hold lilectlon Before Issuing
Just what is the status of the
City of Madras in regard to the
issuance of local liquor licenses is
a question that is now puzzling
the authorities here, since the
decision handed down by Judge
Knowles in the circuit court at
Wallowa, in the Joseph local op
tion case. Judge Knowles hold3
that the wording of the so-called
"Home Rule" amendment is
faulty, and declares that the
amendment does not, in all prob
ability, convey the meaning that
it was intended to. He declares
that the only reasonable con
struction that can be placed on
the constitutional amendment is
that where the local option law
in force in a county by a vote of
the people of that county, town3
and incorporated cities do not
have the power to license the
sale of intoxicating liquors with
in their corporate limits, with
out first having taken a vote on
For the reason that the county
of Wallowa was "dry" at the
time and the town of Joseph had
not held an election on the liquor
issue, Judge Knowles holds that
the city authorities had no right
to issue the licenses.
However, so far as can be de
termined, the ruling in this case
will have no effect whatever upon
the question in Madras, for at
the last election Crook county as
a whole voted "wet" and Madras
precinct did likewise, although
there are in this county several
dry precincts. The Joseph case
has been appealed to the supreme
court and it is expected that a
decision of that body will be
rendered sometime in the month
of May. There appears to be
several points that need deci
sions to give the general public
the real meaning of the "Home
Rule" amendment, as there are
points which seemingly conflict
with the general local option
laws now in effect in this state.
Build Office Quarters
William Esselstyn, manager of
the yards of the Turr.-a-Lumbei
company at Madras, has had con
structed a lumber shed and office
building at the yards, and ex
pects his wife and son to join
here this week from Walla Wal
la, provisions having been made
for them to reside in the office
building. Mr. Esselstyn states
that the Tum-a-Lum company
will put in about 250,000 feet of
lumber in the local yard and will
also handle shingles, lime and
cement, and possibly a little
