Petition #11383410


Twenty-three citizens of Society Hill, Darlington District, are aware that a repeal or modification of the License Law will be considered at the next session of the legislature. They therefore "beg leave to present their views on this important subject" by offering several suggestions concerning “the evils of Intemperance”: first, they request the repeal of the License Law, except where it prevents selling liquor to slaves; second, they ask for a referendum on the next ballot, which would propose the entire prohibition of the liquor trade except for medicinal purposes; and finally, the citizens suggest that drunkenness be considered a punishable crime.
