Judge Pollock Undecided on Question
of Jurisdiction and Has Taken the
Case Under Advisement—Measure
Kansas City, Kan., May 14.—A case
Involving the constitutionality of the
prohibitory law, passed by the last
Kansas legislature, came up before
Judge Pollock of the United States
court iu Kansas City, Kan. One sec-
tion of the new law prohibits the sale
of liquor for medicinal or mechanical
purposes or 011 the prescription of a
physician. Samuel A. Harrison, a
druggist of 502 Minnesota avenue,
Kansas City, Kan., brought suit, ask-
ing that Joseph Taggart, prescutlng
attorney of Wyandotte county, be en-
Joined from prosecuting him for the
sale of liquor for medicinal purposes.
The matter was brought in the
United States court on grounds that
Harrison is a non-resident of Kansas.
Judge Pollock took the case under
advisement, but expressed doubt as to
whether his court had jurisdiction in
Taken Undea Advisement.
J. K. Cubhinson, attorney for Harri-
son, contended that the law of 1909 is
unconstitutional on the ground that
the prohibition amendment of the state
constitution forbids the legislature to
prohibit the sale of intoxicating liquor
for medicinal, mechanical and scien-
tific purposes and that the interstate
commerce laws give to the state legis-
latures the power to prohibit the sale
of only such commodities as are ad-
judged by the legislatures to be uni-
versally harmful and without bene-
ficial uses, such as cigarettes. Fred
8. .fackson, attorney general, and John'
Marshall, assistant attorney general, |
contended that the prohibitory law did'
not In any way conflict with the pro I
visions of either the Kansas or the - nDiimmcdc MCCTiiur
United States constitution. j MISSOURI DRUMMERS MEETING
