Loulnvlllr bureau, 2:tO Knnil llullitlin. gl'K'UL IMSI'AIVH '0 INK K MJI 1 1! I' II. Louisville, Ky., November 17 Kegulations for the wholesale sale, transportation and distribution of 'medicinal" whisky in Kentucky pfter December 5, effective date of lepeal of national prohibition, are rcing drawn by the State Tax Om-j.iission and will be promulgated in R few days, it was learned here today. New regulations are necessary because the present Kentucky law hdopts the Federal permit, system lor distribution and this system vill lapse automatically with repeal. The special session of the Legis-'.iture last summer passed a law permitting manufacture and distribution of "medicinal" whisky under ermits to be issued by the State Tax Commission. This system is j eeded because the state dry amendment still remains in the Kentucky C onstitution and the commonwealth consequently will remain "dry" even rfter national prohibition repeal. Regulations for issuance of these permits and for handling of whisky under permit have been drawn by the Tax Commission, which will administer the new law. Attorneys for the distillers and the drug trade have been In conference with state officials. Medicinal Kules Stand. The new regulations will not affect directly the Kentucky purchaser of prescription whisky. State law limits issuance of physicians' prescriptions for whisky to one prescription to a patient in 10 days, and each prescriptior is good for only one pint. This provision is statutory and cannot be altered by regulation. There is no machinery at present, however, to handle distribution of whisky in Kentucky after national prohibition repeal. It is this field that will be covered by the new regulations. Kentucky law limits distribution to the manufacturer or distributor of whisky and to wholesale and retail druggists. The new regulations will provide for issuance of state permits for the sal 3 and transportation of whisky from one to the other of these agencies until it. reaches the retail druggist. At that point the present prescription law will govern sale to consumers. It was understood in reliable quarters close to distillers that they have urged strictness in the new regulations, with t guard against an view to safe-indiscriminate liquor traffic. j Pry Reaction Feared. The distillers desire to avoid any; possible abuses as might react tin-j favorably against repeal of the state dry amendment and state prohibi-j tion laws. It is understood the new ; regulations will follow the general lines of the present Federal permit system. With these regulations in effect, there will be no immediate neces sity for further liquor legislation by the next General Assembly which will convene in January. The Assembly will be asked, however, to set up machinery for state control in the event of repeal of statt prohibition, a question which will he asked to submit to vote of th" people at the November, 1035. general election.

One Suit Would Discharge, Oilier Keep, Jameson. Oilier Dissatisfaction Said To Bn Current. Among Customers Of Kent on CoiuniissioiuM'S. Disagreement over the method of operation of the Kenton County Water Commission, which has charge ot the water supply for Fort Mitchell, Erlanger, Elsmere and subdivisions along the Dlxlo Highway between Covington and Elsmere, reached the courts yesterday when two petitions-nnn asking that J Hubert Jameson be removed as Chairman of the Water Commis j sion and another asking that he be I retained were suhmlted lo Judg' John H. Head, of Kenton County Court. Judge Head, who has the powei to appoint the Commissioners, continued hearing on the petition until i December 1. The Hoard of Commissioners, ! which Includes Mr. Jameson, C. Ed-. ward Gelae and John M. Crowe, are I said to be at loggerheads. Jameson i and Gelse, however, are said to agree. I jist February consumers in Elsmere and Erlanger complained fit the sei vice charge required of consumers. An adjustment was made, and the service charge of $Hi a , year In those two communities, i which are outside the water district, was reduced lo $K. A service j charge of $S a year lo consumer. 1 in the water district was dlscon- tinned, When the matter was being threshed out, Paul Hesser, who was Superintendent of the Water District, resigned nnd John M. Clowe was appointed by Judge Head to succeed him. Dissatisfaction among a group of consumers and failure on the pait of the three Commissioners to agree, resulted In the pell inns bein submitted to Judge Read relative to the removal of Mr. Jameson. V is said other petitions are In circulation asking for removal of other members of the Commission. After Crowe becamo a member of the hoard he advocated legislation which would authorize the incorporation of the Water District to enable certain changes to be made In its operation. Some of the bondholders of the district were for and others against the proposition. Seven years ago thfl Legislature authorized the issuo of $210,000 worth of bonds with which to enuin , the district, and assessments were (levied against property owners In the district to provide Interest and i amort izatlon of the bonds.
