"The nioKt serious feature of ( he
affair to thone engaged In the Hale of

that they liavo unwittingly subjected
themselves to the Internal revenue
laws. Under the section relating to
retail liquor deulors theyaresulijecled
to 11 tax of $25 per year. This tax
will lie collected In full from those
who liavo purchased quantities of the
liquor slnco July 1 , the beginning of
the government's fiscal year , and who
now have It on sale , providing they
continue to sell it. The fallui'e to

the government revenue laws refer

the wine off their list rather than pay
the government prlco for selling It ,
and If they are taxed up with what
they have already done In that line
they propose to charge II up to the
accounts of the wholesalers liom
