Government Forbids Enemy
Aliens From Buying More
Than JO i Cents Worth of,
jDne Kind. .
' ... .
The long arm of Uncle Sam lias
taclied out to include even 10 cents
worth of powder within its grasp nd
the government lias decreed, .that
enemy aliens must not buy any piece
of fireworks or explosive - costing
more than a dime. Even American
citizens must obtain a license if they
wish to buy a fire cracker or a Ro
man candle worth more than 10 cents.
All dealers in explosives of, whatever
size or value must obtain licenses
"The. United States government
wants to Keep track of every bit of
powder that is sold," says Frame
Dewey, county clerk, who is issuing
the licenses. "Jhe purpose, is un
doubtedly to prevent powder in any
quantity from finding ifrs way into
the" hands of alien enemies."
- Two " Aliens Apply. ;
Only two alien enemies have ap
plied to Dewey for licenses to handle
explosives,, and these were small
shop keepers who were ignorant of
the law, ;
Dewey fs acting under the regula
tion of last November, issued by the
Department tf the Interior, bureau of
mines, of which F. S.'Peabody is di
rector in charge of explosives. Dewey
was appointed director in charge of
Douglas county.
, All dealers are required to obtain
licenses from Dewey beforehandling
explosives of any nature. The deal
ers are forbidden to sell -more than
10 cents' worth of any one kind of
explosive to a purchaser, unless the
purchaser has a license to buy a
greater quantity.
. What You Can Buy.
'This regulation includes explo-
sives and fireworks of all kinds with
the single exception of cartridges for
small arms : and shotguns," ssaid
Dewey. "It includes smokeless pow
der, and all chemicals or ingredients
which could be combined into explo
sives, such as nitric acid. Even pho
tographers must have licenses if they
wish to buy flashlight powder."
The county1 clerk s office has been
rushed by dealers who have applied
for licenses within the., last two or
three days, Dewey expects to issue
over 500 licenses before July 4.
