The contest over the applications for liquor license, of Shubel BURTON,
Marshall BEASLEY, James RAGLAND and Will KEANE, of Mitchell, occupied the
attention of the Board Monday afternoon. Remonstrances were filed
bearing the names of about three-fourths of the voters; but these names
were all signed by one person, who had been given written power of
attorney last spring to sign their names, other parties at that time
being applicants. The applicants brought over papers bearing a number of
requests for withdrawals of signatures from the remonstrances, but there
were not enough to invalidate the remonstrances. The right to sign by
power of attorney in such matters was recently sustained by the Supreme
Court, and the point at issue before the Board is whether the power of
attorney given when other persons were applicants, applies to the present
applicants. The attorney employed by the liquor men, W. H. TALBOTT, of
Orleans, made an able argument in their behalf; against which the
temperance people brought the combined efforts of CROOKE & CROOKE,
McHenry OWEN, and Attorney DOANE, of Indianapolis. The Board considered
the matter until Thursday, when a meeting was held to render a decision.
