I Local. •*• ' ' Comici : •''•I- ' Clattified The Ntwipaper For The Horn* Member Associated Press FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14, 195S Second Secfion Board Grants Store Permit To Sell Beer License' Commissioners ~ . Turn Down Protest • By Ellerslie Group A Class A off sale beer license was made available today to an Ellerslie operator of a confectionery by the Aliegany County Board of License Commissioners after they decided against a remonstrance to the permit.' Mrs. Evelyn Hawkins can pick up the off sale license from the board,- which issued an opinion following the hearing brought about by 90 remonstrants to the issuance of the permit. The board in its opinion urget persons who sign remonstrance petitions (o be sure to understand that they are qualified, and also what they are objecting to. . Some Out Of State The ' board members observe! that Ihe remonstrance was signet by about 90 persons living in..the vicinity: of Ellerslie, but quite a number of whom reside in Penn sylvania. Others are under the age of 21. • The opinion noted lhat there arc probably; at least ten persons remaining . who are 'properly qualified, which is enough for consid eration of the issue. The opinion stated: "The chief difficulty about this case is lhat we are not certain . that these signers, who signed the remonstrance knew they were filing it against an off sale license for beer only. "In fact the:first paragraph ol the remonstrance indicates that the signers did not know whether they were objecting to an on or off sale license for beer. Different Licenses "11 is plain to be seen from the record lhat counsel for the re- monslranls. during the trial, thought they were objecting to an on sale license; and if counsel did not know, it is hardly likely that the remonstrants had any- clear reason to believe that they were objecting to an off sale license." The board pointed out lhat an off sale permit Is radically differ- enl from an on sale. No beer is opened and consumed on the premises. Many markets sell beer in this manner without the slightest complaint of injury to minors, the board added. "In this case, the applicant Is a lady with a good reputation who has been for years operating a confectionery store on her (premises and she desires to add to lhal small operation packaged sales of beef. We see 'no objection to this," the board concluded. Simon F. Reilly was attorney for Mrs. Hawkins and Earl E. Manges for Ihe remonstrants.
