THK THKEE HUNDRED DOLLAR LI
A Mo Argument Hefore Judge Taylor
ardins the Constitutionality of
the Hearty Liquor law.
The case of Harris & Wright
charged with violation of the state
law requiring retail liquor dealers to
pay an annuual license of $300, came
up for argument in the circuit court
at three o'clock yesterday afternoon,
Messrs. McBride and Bronaugh ap
pearing on behalf of the state, the de
fendants being represented by Messrs.
Fulton and Stott The facts in the
case were admitted, the matter being
wholly one of argumeut regarding
the validity of the law. The case
wtr? brought as a test to decide
whether a saloon keeper in Astoria
was to pay an annual license of $200,
as prescribed by an ordinance of the
city council, or one of $300 as pre
scribed by a law passed at the last
session of the state legislature and
approved bv the governor on Novem
ber 25th, 1S83.
The case was opened by C W. Ful
ton, who said that they demurred to
the indictment, first, because the
grand jury had no legal authority to
bring the indictment; second, because
the facts stated constituted no crime;
third, the court had no jurisdiction
in the matter, and fourth, because
the alleged facts cited had legal ex
cuse and justification. The special,
and particular proposition was
whether an indictment can be found
the facts being as they are, or wheth
er the city council have not the ex
clusive right and authority to regu
late and restrain the retail sale of
liquor in this city. He then read the
Keady liquor law; claimed the orig
inal law said nothing about cities,
etc., and that it was the manifest in
tent of that law to apply only outside
of incorporated cities and towns.
The law as amended by the Burcb
bill took away the power of cities and
towns to do other than charge $300.
Counsel here read from authorities
how corporations shall be formed;
that corporations for municipal pur
poses must be formed by special laws,
and laws general in their intent or
application can not be made to so ap
ply. He argued that where a constitu
tion or a statute points out the
way a thing shall be done, that it ex
cludes the right or power to do that
particular thing in any other way or
manner. He cited Cooley on Con
stitutional Limitation, and argued
that as the constitution shows in
what way municipal corporations can
be created.'thata like procedure must
be observed in all cases bearing upon
the enlargement or curtailment of the
powers of such corporations.
Counsel then passed to the manner
of amending the Keady bill and ar
gued that the bill was unconstitu
tional, inasmuch as it was an act for
raising revenue, but yet originated in
the senate, when the constitution ex
pressly states that all bills for raising
revenue must originate in the house.
Ho argued that it was virtually a
bill for raising revenue and for that
reason was unconstitutional by rea
son of the manner in which it origi
nated. Further argument as to the pow
ers of the city council continued.
The closing part of the argument
was devoted to an exposition of the
idea that the law in question virtual
ly repealed the city charter and was
aii attempt to amend that charter
without setting out the particular
title or section which it was intended
to amend. General standard works
on constitutional limitations were re-
or statute could be revised, repealed
or amended without direct statement
and publication of the title aud part
of the act so amended or repealed,
and in cas of the Keady liquor law
in which a portion of the Astoria
city charter was virtually repealed
such repeal was unconstitutional,
and ahould therefore bo considered
Court adjourned at 3 i:r., and at
seven o'clock reconvened, at which
time Mr. Fulton continued his re
marks and concluded his argument.
He argued that, by virtue of the city
charter the city council had exclusive
power to regulate, license or restrain
the retail sale of liquor in this city,
and that power still remains in the
conncil unaffected by an intended,
but unconstitutional amendment by
the legislature of the state in the
passage of the Keady liquor law.
ne asked how far can a special law
be amended. A special act may be
amended or repealed by a general
law, but it requires entire clearness
of intent before the courts will so de
cide. What could be done by the city
council in granting a license in the
face of the act. granting that it was
constitutional? If that power was re
pealed ueithor they nor the count' au
thorities have power to grant a license.
The law was not even definite enough
to enable a lawyer to prosecute any
violation of the supposed law which
was in fact inoperative, and a dead
letter on the statute book. The re
peal of a special law passed for a
special pnrpose must be so clear that
it would admit of no false interpret
ation and inasmuch as considerable
cloudiness exists iu the implied re
peal of tho Astoria city charter by
the Keady liquor law the intent of
the legislature is not clear and the
law can with difficulty be even un
derstood. In its present shape it is
At this juncture Judge Taylor said
he thought the only interpretation
that could be given was that the leg
islature intended to make a general
law requiring that a retail liquor li
cense in this state should cost at
The counsel conceded that the in
tent may have been all right but ap
parent laziness on the part of the
legislature in other cases as well as
this caused them to commit gross in
consistencies, citing the case of Ranier
where the liquor license was set at
S100 in an act which was approved
the same day that the law was passed
setting the required sum throughout
the state for au annual liquor license
District attornev McBrido opened
for the state at 8 P. it. Regarding the
first proposition that the constitution
permitted the formation of municipal
corporations by general law only, he
thought that Tor argument n migut
be conceded that such was the case.
He thought this was not an act giving
auv municipal corporation new pow
ers. It only treated of corporations
already established, and no construc
tion of the constitution could make
that instrument destitute of power
delegated to the legislature to legis
late for the people. This municipal
corporation already existed has ex
isted since 1876. That was done by a
special act. But now it i3 in exist
ence and the argument of the preced
ing counsel has no existence in fact.
Counsel had bat set up a man of
straw and then with great force had
demolished the creation of bis own
fancy. The aot in question creates
nething: no power is limited since the
corporation is complete and in actu
Preceding counsel's proposition
that one cannot amend a special act
by a general law had less force than
he would make appear. In effect the
law on tnat point was that if the later
statute prescribed the ouly reconcil
able condition of circumstances it was,
to stand as the existing law. If it was
the manifest and clear intent of the
legislature, it could and should be con
strued as the intent of the legislature
to repeal all conflicting statutes.
Regarding the proposition that the
act was a bill for raising revenue and
should therefore have originated in
the house, Mr. Mclsnde said that
where revenue was to be raised for
state purposes, general taxation or of
kindred import it would be plausible
argument, but in this case it is plain
the intent was different and doesn't
come under the head the opposing
counsel thought it did.
Conrts have held that liquor license
is not a tax; it is but a regulation, a
restraint, and revenue is only inci
dental; the prime object of the license,
the apparent tax, is not for revenue
and could not justly be considered so.
Counsel read from various judg
ments iu confirmation of the views
enunciated and argued that the rais
ing of revenue was not the intent of
the legislature in passing the Keady
liquor law. That law doesn't create
the right or the duty to license. It
simply stipulates how a thing shall
be done that has been done all along.
It makes no new procedure, it .only
directs the old, and the matter oPrev
enue is purely incidental, and the
purpose of the law is one of restraint.
The city charter itself was iutro-
duccd in the senate, and if this act i
is void because of its origination in I dictment and punishment for such
the senate, then the very charter itself refusal or neglect,
is void too, and no one can legady col-' He also argued that a municipal

The general rule was that a court law providing for liquor license at
would take such a question in its en
tirety. It would, with the court, be
a question of intent aud would, if
questioned, be decided upon the
theory that the legislature intended
it for the best.
This matter, regarding revenne is
not "revenue' as the constitution in-
tends, and is incidental.
Regarding the alleged failure "to
set out the sections amended," coun
sel thought that there was no intention
to "amend' the charter. The judge
.thought it was "a conflicting act."
Counsel argued, saymg that it re
pealed by implication. A repealing
act repeals as well by implication
as by direct reference. The act savs
to the city council "you may charge
$500 or $1000 if you wish" It Bays,
directly, "vou shall not charge less
than $300," thus repealing by inipli
caitou the prior rate of S200.
He thought great judicial caro was
required iu passing judgment. Where
there was any doubt, the benefit of
the donbt was to be given the people
of the state. This was not a case
where there appeared clear evidence
Judge Bronaugh followed District
Attorney McBride. He said it being
admitted by counsel that the consti
tutionality of the law should be given
the benefit of the doubt, made it un
necessary to furtherdemonstrate that
He thought if the arguments of
plaintiff's counsel were right, they
had committed suicide. He thought
he could make it clear that if defend
ants counsel were right, two licenses,
a city and county, were required. Ho
called the attention of the court to
the old law of 1831 that no person
should be permitted to sell liquor at
reuiu wuuuui uuviug urst outameu
a license from the county court The
Keady law of '85 prescribed that a
county license was required. Under
the old or new regime, in any event,
the liquor dealer had to have two li
censes bnt for the proviso in the new
law which made it unnecessary for
the city saloon keeper to geta county
The Keady liquor law originated
in the house, which effectually dis
posed of the talk about "revenue,"
and that law repealed all laws not in
Judge Bronaugh thought that it
was the legislative intent to keep any
one from selling liquor at retail with
out a connty license except in cities
where a city license was sufficient
He cited from various legislative acts
that the distinction was made
throughout the state in all the cities.
Ho argued that the intention of the
several provisos was to make it possi
ble for a retail liquor dealer to sell in
a city without a county license. So
that if the amondatory act was a nul
lity all retail liquor dealers would
have to get two licenses; and if that
act is unconstitutional because it is
,fa revenue" law, then the charter of
the city of Astoria shares the same
fate as far as the section about licens
es is concerned. Defendant's conu
sel proves too much and upsets tho
whoIefabric. He thought the whole
charter was not invalid, but only that
part regarding the liceuses. But ho
didn't think that the suicidal argu
ment of defendant's counsel should
prevail, or that the city charter should
lie upset in an effort to upset the
Keady liquor law.
Here he read copious extracts from
different authorities in support of hi3
argument that the money derived
from the sale of such licenses is not
''revenue" as a taxation, it is a regula
tion and a restraint a3 regarding po
lice power. The point was made that
the state in the exercise of its police
power has a right to regulate aud re
strain the liquor traffic and its consti
tutional right is to be upheld and
sustained. Suppose $5 was charged
for a liquor license, would that be
revenue, or would it still continue to
be a police regulation? Unquestion
ably the latter, which the speaker
considered was illustration that the
amount charged whether one do liar
or one thousand had nothing to do
witb it and hence was not in reality
a "reveune" law. It was simply mak
ing it a more restrictive regulation to
make the license a higb one. The
disposition of tho revenue resultant
didn't have anything to do with it.
It was to save society that the license
law was enacted, and not to raise rev
enue. Passing to the attempt to "amend"
the city charter, counsel thought that
the legislature had the same right to
pass a law in apparent conflict with
the Astoria charter as it would to
pass a prohibitory law, even though
that general law if passed would be
in apparent conflict with the charters
of Astoria and other cities. Judge
Bronaugh said if the Keady act, as
amended, was unconstitutional then
there was no right vested in the cita
to graut a retail liquor license, aud
on that act rested the right to re
strain aud regulate the liquor
traffic by issuing licenses. He
thought as matters stood to
day to insure compliance with the
law that a saloon keeper iu Astoria
should be compelled to obtain two
licenses, one from the county and one
from the city. Ho went further in
the declaration that a saloon keeper
; declaration that a saloon keeper
this citv who refused or neirlect-
tins cu wno reiuseu or neglect-
to have a license m strict accord-
anco with the law was liable to in-
time the license was granted. At the
close of Judge Bronangh's remarks,
Hon. Raleigh Stott rose for the de
fense. He said that Judge Bronaugh had
undertaken to estabhsb the proposi-
tion that if defendants' counsel was
$300 must be considered as a bill to
raise revenue. He thought that this
whole matter was more one of taxa
tion than "regulation," or "police
power." Tho city could to-day tax
I saloon keepers $1,000 if it wanted to.
and it would be a "tax,'
result in revenne.
The constitution contemplated the
creation of municipal corporations by
special act, but could not repeal or
amend the provisions of such charter
except by special act. In such case
general laws could not apply except
in such a way that the exact desire
and intent of such law was set forth
beyond a reasonable doubt. The
Keady law is au amendment or in-
J tended as an amendment, but the As
toria citv ordinances were unaffected
thereby. The Bnrch law was an at
tempt "to rectifv the mistakes of the
Keady liquor law but it was inoper
Burclfs bill is the only one that at
tempts to amend the city charters by

should have iucluded a statement that
the several city charters of. Oregon
were amended to read in unison with
the bill as passed. Amendment by
implication is not amendment by in
tent aud such amendment as that at
tempted in the law iu question is no
amendment at all.
Though it is claimed that this is a
police regulation yet the tax and po
lice regulation are alike retained iu
tho jurisdiction of the city. The city
has more power than the connty court;

Whenever the intent 'and pnrpose
of a license or anything else is to
produce money from the;recipient or
the license or permit, that is a tax,
and results in revenue to the issuer
of such license, or permit. Granting
for argument that the Keady liquor
law is valid, can it be assumed as a
correct position that any penalty at
taches to tho violation of the law?
How is the license money levied and
collected by the state? By collec
tion of the fine, by imposing penalties
for such violation.
The state has no jurisdiction; tue
power to enforce the law, and punish
ment for noncompliance ne3 soieij
with the city. Counsel thought
that the issue was a very plain one.
Judge Bronaugh asked if it was only
a question about the collection of a
license fee. Judge Stott said that was
purely a question for the city, to
whose exclusive use and benefit the
monev collected would inure. The
fines were one thing, the collection of
tho money for license was quite an
other; the latter was for revenue; the
former could not bo considered as
such. The city has the licensing
power; tho question is, is the $300 col
lected not for municipal purposes,
and used in carrying on tho city gov
ernment Tho men that get the li
censo for $200 have a right to sell if
that license is issued to them.
On this point tho district attorney
said that such license is void and of
no effect; such saloon keeper in law
has no license. Judge Stott closed
his argument at fifteen minutes to
