provided that the banks must be absolutely-under

(ftalem Bdreii of The Jeurnat.i '
Salem, Or.; Nov. ft. Information waa
obtained today from .an authoritative
source .that the liquor jlnteresta , will
bring an injunction suit against County
Judge Bushey ' to restrain him' from
Issuing an order declaring Salem to' be
dry aa a result of the local option elec
tlon Tuesday. The suit will be brought
on the ground that a local option elec
tion. cannot be held legally except, at
the time of a general eleotlon, or when
a regular 'City election, falls on the. first
Tuesday after, tha first Monday or -November
in a . year whem there Is no
eral election. ; The "wets" contend that
Tuesday's election was a special and not
a general election. . . r, .
Attorney W. H. Trlndle. leader of the
"drys,": said he has Investigated this
question and in hla opinion the "wets'
have not a peg to stand on with such a
contention. - He declared that the su
preme court has held that a local option
election can be held in any year on the
first Tuesday after the' first Monday
and -at no other time. He said 'It would
have made i no difference If there . had
been 'no special state election Tuesday,
the; locals option election I would have
been held Just the same, i - " ' -
t According to the contention of the
liquor men when a local option election
is. beld at the time of , a 'general state
election, the state election machinery Is
used, and when .held atthe time of
cltyi election then the city election ma
chinery must be used. . - They contend
that-, as .the Salem city election does not
c6me 'In .November, no. local option elec
tion could be held here . legally this
year.; , v. '...- :i '--.
But regardless of the outcome of the
local, option, election., the ."drys" have
another , whack at the saloons, and this
Is also causing aome Interesting spec
ulation on the part of the ''wets." An
lnltlatlvramendment to the, city chaster
has been filed, prohibiting the city
council, from Issuing any more saloon
licences, and . this , will be, voted on at
the city election uecemeer i.y it - it
carries- the amendment will go into ef
fect- immediately, thus abolishing "s
loon on that date. All saloon licenses
now "expelre" December ;1.
This" would iclve the Prohibitionists" a
double hitch on the "dry" regime, with
the ' city charter amendment preceding
the local option by one month.
, And If the "drys" fall to pass the dry
ehartef amendment,' the saloons will be
abolished the firat of the year anyway
unless the local option election Is de
