Judo Ibirnctt tiied thin case for

ilton sit in Jude Burnett's court
in Yamhill county. The facts are
that a local option election wa
behl in Coos county and West Co
ipiille pr.cinct, in which the town
of O-pnlifl i situated, voted "dry."
At tho mine election tho people
adopted a constitutional amend
ment which authorized the people
of a city to adopt or aiiend their
otv n chartorH, "subject to the con
stitution and criminal lawn of the
Hlato." The town of Ccxiuillo pro
ceeded under this section and
adopted a charter which author
ized it to license tho hqIo of lhjuor.
Immediately after tho election a
licenso was issued to George K.
Baxter, under which he sold liquor
in Coipiille. He was arrested, con
victed and lined $50. He took a
writ of review to the Cireuit Court
and the caso was wan taken under
advisement nnd today Judge Bur

county to be filed and recorded.
No OI'IMON in wiutiso.
Judge Burnett wrote no opiniou
in tho ease, but from the isnues it is
apparent that he must have de
cided the lullowin" points: That
tho local option law is constitu
tional; that the local option law U
u criminal law, sinco it defines an
oflVnso which is punishable by in
dictment and fine; that the people
of a city located in a precinct which
has none 'dry" cannot therefore
adopt a charter which will Huspend
