A few years later, however, as money became more plentiful and as businessmen saw profit in liquor, a state law was enacted to control the issuance of licenses according to the population. Controlled were three types of .licenses--No. 6; No. 7, on-sale of suance of these'ljcenses and perhaps future issuance.

REASONS: It will lower the "sale" or transfer value of licenses. Secondly, the association honestly believes that 104 No. 6 licenses in Pima County, for example, would be too many. The association is convinced that a total .of 420 beer and wine places would be too many for Pirna County. A bar on every corner, the association believes, would be detrimental to the business.
