SCHUTZ BREWING CO., MILWAUKEE, WIS. , That Madt- M i l w a u k e e EDITOR'S NOTE: Because of interest in proposed legislation to permit sale of hard liciuor by the drink in Iowa, the following summary has been prepared of bills pending" in the house and senate. The original bill was introduced simultaneously in both houses and known as H. F. 100 and S. F. 100. A substitute for H. F. 100 has been offered in the house by the sponsors of the original bill. In the senate, a substitute for the original bill has been offered by Senator Howard C. Baldwin (D) of Cascade. DBS MOINES, (/P)--None of the bills pending in the Iowa legislature to provide for the sale of hard liquor by the drink would disturb the present state liquor store set-up. Licensees would be required to buy 'their, liquor from the state- owned stores, excepting in the case of railroads serving liquor on their dining cars, who would be obliged to pay the state of Iowa a 10 per cent tax of the cross receipts from liquor bought outside the state. The following is a summary of the proposed methods for handling sales of liquor by the drink: Who would errant the license? ' Under H. F. 100 and the substitute for H. F. 100, the city or town council would grant licenses for the sale of alcoholic liquor to be consumed only on the premises. The licensing authority under the Baldwin plan would be ; the state liquor commission. Do the bills provide for local option? The Baldwin plan does not. The other bills provide the following procedure: ~ In cities and towns where a majority voted for repeal, 20 per cent of the votes cast in the last municipal election may petition for a special election. If the majority approves, licenses may be granted and exercised within zoned license districts, subject to renewal annually. In towns and cities voting against repeal, the license question may be voted upon at a regular election, upon petition of 20 per cent of the votes cast in the preceding election. To whom may licenses be issued? Under the house plan, buffets may obtain class "A" licenses: Hotel buffets, class "B" licenses; and clubs, class "C" licenses. The Baldwin plan makes the following distinction: Hotels, class "A" licenses; restaurants, class "B" licenses; clubs, class "C" licenses; and other persons, class'"D"-licenses. What is a buffet? A buffet as defined in the liquor bill is a public place with only one entrance, opening upon a public street. The bar must be in plain view from the street. A hotel buffet is similar to a buffet, excepting that it may have an opening into the hotel lobby, as well as the opening into the street. The hotel must have sleeping accommodations for 50 guests to qualify for a hotel buffet, under the house plan. The Baldwin plan raises this to 200 rooms. What is a club? · A club is a "bona fide association of persons operating under a charter from a national organization," not operated for profit, the revenue being used for the benefit of the entire membership. Who designates the license zones? The city or town council. What are some of the proposed regulations for operation of a li- quor-by-thc-drink establishment? No gambling, dancing or music would be permitted. Sale of food would be prohibited. No women or minors could be employed in such establishments. What would be the limitations on sales? Sale to minors would be prohibited, as well as sales where checks or money orders were offered in payment. How would the number of licenses be limited? Under the house plan the following limits would apply: "A," $500; class "B," $500; class "C," $500. ' ' From $5,000 to 25,000 population--Class "A," $600; class "D," $700; class "C," $600. From 25,000 to 65,000 population--Class "A," $800; class 'B,' $1,000; class C," $800. Over 65,000 population--Class "A," $1,000; class "B," $1,200; class "C" $1,000. The schedule of license fees under the Baldwin plan is as follows Under 5,000 population--Class "A," $600; class "B," $600; class ^'C," $150; and class "D," $COO. From 5,000 to 25,000 population --Class "A," $300; class "B," $900; class "C," $250; class "D," $900 Over 25,000 population--Class "A," $1,500; class "D," $1,200; class "C," $500; class "D," $1,200. What would the license for railroad dining cars be? Railroads would pay $100 for their original permit and $5 each for duplicate certificates to be displayed in individual cars. Are there any other, requirements of prospective licenses? The applicant must ,be of good moral character. Under the house plan he \yould need .approval of the state liquor commission on this point before the .city council could issue the permit. Bond of $3,000 would be required of the applicant. What would be the closing hour? Establishments would be required to close between 1 a. m. and 7 a. m., excepting in the case of "D" license holders under the Baldwin plan, who would close from 10 p. m. to 7 a. m. Sale would be prohibited on . Sunday and on election day. $160 an Acre Paid for Thompson Farm THOMPSON -- Henry Eriekson sold 80 acres in a well improved farm, 2V- miles east on highway No. 9, Saturday to William Orthel o£ near Woden for $160 an. acre.
