Austin. — After a brief respiti
Iroiu the strenuous four months, ses-
sion ol the legislature, just ended,
Texas politicians will gild their loins
and sail into another fight—:the
battle over repeal of the state con-
stitutional amendment prohibiting the
manufacture and sale of intoxicat-
ing liquor in Texas.
iiii; legislature adopted a uoubie-
omieueu proluoiiiuii repeal aineuu-

voters. 'I lie urst secUon, to oe passed

'the sesoiui section provides that in
the general elecuon ui it ;j(j, ila- peo-

v.'hether tile sale of liquor exclusively

Uie wets are actually given two cli.inc
es. u repeal should fad m August, it
mi^ia cany, under Uie slate moiiopiy
sys.em, in November, If. repeal
cariies in August, it is safe to say the
siate o lollop I y system probably Will
hot l.ie adopted by the legislature un-
til the people pas., upon that issue
the following year. Probably a high
license .system, with possibly no sale
except in unbroken packages, will be
preferred by the law makers for a
year.s tryout. Hotel operators anil
others interested in profiting from
the re'.ail sale of liquor by the drink
will doubtless make a terrific fight
against the unbroken package system
ii the peple sanction legal sale of I.
