PIERRE. S. D., Deo. t (Special.) Attor ney General Clark has given an opinion on request of States Attorney Anderson of Day county, which, If sustained by the courts, will be a hard blow to Illegal liquor selling and other offenses against the law which carry with fines for such offenses, costs of th case. In that county a con viction was sequred In a case of Illegal liquor selling and th penalty was a fine ot M and costs, the total amount being $129.60. The question raised In his query by States Attorney Anderson was the power of th court to Include Imprisonment for failure to pay costs as well aa for failure to pay the fine Imposed. The attorney gen eral. In a lengthy opinion on the subject, holds that the weight of authorlty-cn th question Is that such penalty can be im posed. He holds that imprisonment for costs would In no way violate th bill of rights In th state constitution, and that such aotlon Would b valid. In a great many petty criminal cases In this state the party convicted serves out his fine, .but Is released as soon as that Is done, on the theory that he cannot be compelled to serve Jail time for costs. But this stand of th attorney general puts the situation In a dif ferent light. Heating ftew t'apltot. PIERRE, S. D., Dec. 1 (Special.)
