SOME CITIES REMAIN DRY;
OTHERS REMAIN WITHOUT LAWS.
George:' E. Farewell, "Attorney for
Wholesale Liquor Dealers, Says
There Is No Confusion.
Incorporated cities that voted "wet"
in counties that voted "dry" at the
recent election where local option
elections were held, will be allowed to
sell liquor as soon as the Governor of
Oregon proclaims that the home rule
amendment to the constitution has
This is the opinion of George E.
Farewell, representative of the whole
sale liquor dealers, who outlines other
effects of the amendment as follows:
Incorporated cities In "dry" coun
ties that did aiot have a local option
election must remain "dr'y" for two
Incorporated cities that voted "wet"
in counties that voted "wet" may sell
liquor as soon as the County Court de
clares the vote carried and sets aside
the order of prohibition, without wait
ing for the adoption of the Home Rule
Councils in incorporated cities that
are "wet" may elect not to grant liq
Five Counties Affected.
J. R. Knodell, superintendent of the
Oregon Anti-Saloon League, expresses
views that coincide only In part with
those of Mr. Farewell. According to
Mr. Farewell the only counties In the
state that will be affecteoVby the Home
Rule amendment as soon as it be
comes operative are Linn, Douglas,
Hood River, Josephine and Wallowa.
These counties have all apparently
gone "dry," but several of the Incor
porated cities voted "wet." All these
cities that voted "wet," Mr. Farewell
says, may sell liquor under the regula
tion of city ordinances and the crimi
nal laws of the state as soon as the
Governor proclaims the amendment a
part of the constitution.
In Yamhill, Benton and Lane coun
ties, where no local option election was
held, the incorporated cities must re
main "dry" with the county unless
they are voted "wet" two years hence,
as provided by the local option law.
Dry counties that voted "wet" may
dispense liquor without waiting for
the amendment to be proclaimed.
These counties are Crook, Gilliam,
Klamath, Malheur, Morrow, Polk,
Sherman, Tillamook, Umatilla and Un
ion. Opinions on Law Differ.
There Is a wide diversity of opinion
concerning the meaning of the Heme
Rule amendment. Attorney-General
Crawford Is preparing an opinion on
the measure, which will be finished In
a day or two. Other attorneys, when
asked for an opinion, would not dis
cuss the bill offhand and asked time
to read It over and compare the
amendment with the provisions of the
present local option law.
Following la an opinion Mr. Fare
First Where counties (or subdivis
ion thereof Including cities), hereto
fore "dry," vote "wet," no city therein
voting "wet" can license saloons until
the County Court enters an order set
ting aside the former order of prohi
bition, which muBt be done forthwith
after the canvassing of the vote.
Second In case, however, such city
was formerly "dry" by help of out
side precincts, but "wet" by vote with
in city alone, and no vote on local op
tion was taken this year. It is not clear
whether, the amendment can give the
city power of issuing licenses until the
same territory votes "wet." It will take
a tet case to decide. I believe, howev
er, the County Court can be compelled
to vacate such order of prohibition,
within the city, as soon as the Gover
nor has issued his proclamation that
the constitutional amendment has car
ried, or the city can ignore the order
and issue licenses. The amendment Is
nblert to the local option law, nui
cal option law will keep cities In those
counties 'dry" for two years.
Outshle. Vote Not Binding.
"In Linn, Douglas, Hood River, Jo
sephine and Wallowa Counties the sit
uation is different and they present the
only cases where the provisions of the
home rule bill will really become op
erative. Cities that voted 'wet' In these
counties, when the home rule amend
ment becomes effective, will have the
right to sell liquor. They will not be
bound by the rural or the outside
vote. This is the object of the home
rule amendment and nothing more.
There is 'nothing confusing about the
measure, it means just what It says
that Is, to give each city a right to
govern itself so long as that govern
ment Is consistent with the local option
law and the criminal laws of the
J. R. Knodell, superintendent of the
Oregon Anti-Saloon League, suld;
"The home-rule amendment is the
greatest monstrosity ever seen in Ore
gon legislation. It first throws the
state wide open to the sale of liquor
and then it closes it up tighter than
ever before. It has written the present
local option laws into the constitution,
but in doing so, it has brought on two
extremes that will not be satisfactory
to the extremists on either side of the
liquor question. It does not help the
man who really wants to clean up It
opens and then shuts the door to the
liquor traffic. It cannot be satisfactory
to either extremist.
Cities Left Without Iaws.
"The counties that voted 'wet' un
der present local option laws are wet'
without the home-rule bill and will
remain so until they are vqted 'dry'
under the local option law. But when
the home-rule amendment Is declared
adopted there will be no law to govern
the sale of liquor In cities In these
'wet' counties unless the city councils
adopt Ordinances prior to the adoption
of the constitutional amendment. In
the 'dry counties that contain cities
that voted 'wet', the cities must re
main 'dry' until the amendment Is a
part of the constitution and then they
must hold an election and vote on the
question before they may sell liquor.
Local option law in 'dry' counties that
did not vote on the question of local
option at the recent election, will re
main In force until an other election
"I hope something can be done wlth
the . home-rule bill to clean up the
liquor traffic, but I doubt It. The men
behind it will soon find they have a
big fight on their hands. They will be
caught between the two extremists,
the law cannot be satisfactory to el-
ther the radical prohibitionist or the
advocate of the saloon without re
straint. I hope they may be able to
make something out of It but I can't

being supported by a vote outside of
the city, only. It follows that such or

after the passage of the amendment.
Third In case a city was formerly
"dry" but at the recent election the
city within Its limits went "wet," and
at the same time the entire county or
subdivision thereof including such
city went "dry," the County Court
would have no power to order the city
"dry." as the Home Rule amendment

Sixth No city council can license
