, neni early J uesday afternoon, after
! hearing arguments from both sides
, on the legality of calling an election
j for the establishment, of a liquor store
or stores m Haywood county.
Judge Alley's decision was based
solely on the Cabe bill, which was
passed Dy He preventative John F.
Cabe in the l!.'i7 session ..f r.....
era I Assembly. The bill provided that
liquor stores could be established in
Waynesville or Beaverdam townships,
provided the voters in 'either of the
townships voted for the stores, re
gaidless of tlie vote of the remain
der of the county.
The question of the legality of cer
tain petitioners to vote in th,. election
was not ii jioint in the arguments.
The petitions recently tin-tied over to
the hoard of elections contained over
1.7MI names. Only I.70K w re needed,
but Judge Alley held that it was noi'
Ins duty to go. into that phase of the
question. The conslitiitionalily of the
Cube hill was the basis of the case,
and on which Judge Alley based his
Judge' Alley held that, the Cabe bill
was in conflict with the general law
controlling ABC stores of the state.
In that the genera law provided that
the question, bo submitted to counties
for a vote, and gave the hoard of
liquor control (lie right lo designate
and say where stoics in earn county
should be established. The Cabe In w,
on the other hand,'. provided, that the
citizens in the townships of Waynes
ville and Beaverdam had the right to
vote and set up stores and place a tax
on all the county. The bill held that
stores could he established in either
township, whereas the genera law
gives the board of liquor control the
right to establish the stores at any
place within the county they so desire.
