W— Revenue Commissioner Dean '< R. Moriey'sald a formal order'would be Issued soon ordering'Arkansas' Sour liquor export houses to cease operation. ,. Morley, who conferred at Fort Smith yesterday 'with, representatives of the expTrters said he how expected'all lour companies to re- ilst. , . , The order: will direct the exporters to "show.cause" why their per- jnits should 7 not be revoked. , The commissioner will hold a hearing at 2 p.m. next Monday. He said he expected the exporters to take the case to court- after he formally suspends their permits. Morley said that actually the exporters already have curtailed operations. The Revenue Department cut off sale of liquor tax stamps to them last month when: Ihe com-missioner first announced he would ask them to stop business. Morley said "he had become convinced that .through licensing the exporters '.(«! state was bejng put 1" a position of violating federal statutes. . Moreover, he said, in view of the recent retention of prohibition in Oklahoma by popular vote he felt Hie state probably was being put in the same position in regard to laws of a neighboring stut'e. - . Election Brings Decision .Morley first announced his de termination to stop liquor exporting following the Oklahoma election. Issuance of liquor export licenses obviously-intended 'to permit shipments from Arkansas Into legally dry states was authorized by the 19-19 legislature. . Morley said .that when he issued the permits he believed that Vkit- homa"' would refute prohibition at the statewide election. . . At the time the Oklahoma Legislature had refused to pas a so-called bone dry la\v. That is one which v-'ould permit the state to call on "^federal .authorities for assistance in enforcing prohibition. , Since then, the Oklahoma legislature has adopted such a law and the voters have retained statewide prohibition Morley said that the^situntlon in Mississippi, to which Arkansas exporters' also have been sending liquor is not exactly the same, hul that he felt if any exporters per mits were revoked, all should be. Mississippi technically is dry.bul the state has a "black market' tax on the.illegal liquor. Representatives of. nil. four export house.' attended .Tuesday's con ference at Fort Smith.
