Attorney General Napier contended before the court that the property owned by the state of Georgia and leased to the Nashville. Chattanooga and St. Louis railroad is now being devoted to public use. He stated further that property devoted to one public use cannot be diverted to another and inconsistent public use without passage of enabling legislation by the general assembly of the state.

He also contended that the city of Chattanooga should not attempt to open this street without arranging to protect the interests of the state of Georgia at the end of the present lease which has 44 more years to run. Chattanooga's case was presented by the city attorney who contended that the city had the right under condemnation proceedings to proceed with opening of the two streets across the state property, making arrangements to pay whatever damages may be fixed by proper authorities.

But the dry strategy has served to conceal this situation. Instead of exposing the wets to a defeat on a show-down, it enables them to go to the country and. report that the drys refused to allow the modificationist measures to come to a vote in the senate.

Nobody knows better than astute politicians like Bruce and Edge that a prohibition referendum at this time would show a predominant number of states dry. Wets would not expect to carry more than a dozen at the most. But now, denied a national referendum by the drys, the wets can concentrate on the New York state referendum in November. And if they win that their cause will be immeasurably advanced.

The biggest puzzle of this whole liquor fight is the unwillingness of the drys to welcome a show-down now while they still are in control.
