LIOUOR PURCHASER
FOUND NOT LIABLE
Y SUPRE COURT
No Decision Made by Tribunal
on Status of Buyer of Stock
Illegally Transported.
GIVES THREE DECISIONS
Finds Government Deliberately
Omitted Imposition of Guilt
on Liquor Purchaser.
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, May 26. - The
buyer of bootleg liquor was held
by the Supreme Court today not
liable to prosecution as a violator
of the Prohibition laws if the ques-
tion of illegal transportation and
possession be not involved.
The court declined, however, in
another case, to declare whether
purchasers who knowing illegal
transportation will be involved are
guilty of conspiracy to violate the
Prohibition law. It found that the
case in which the government had
sought to raise that issue had been
foreclosed by the plea equivalent to
one of guilty which had been en-
tered when the accused was ar-
raigned,.
Government Defeated.
In a third case, the court held
manufacturers- using liquor andl
alcohol in the preparation of a
non- beverage product were en-
titled to operate until their permits
were cancelled for some violation
and could not be required to an-
nually renew their permits. I
The two cases decided on their
merits were defeats for the gov-
ernment, and all three decisions
were without dissent.
James E. Farrar of Boston was
indicted for purchasing liquor from
a bootlegger. The Federal District
Court for Massachusetts. quashed
the indictment, taking the position
that the prohibition law didnot, as
the government ; had contended,
make :the p rchaser equally guilty
with the seller.
The government appealed direct-
'y to the Supreme Court, which in
an opinion by Justice Sutherland
declared the contention that any
purchase without a permit was il-
legal and could, not be sustained.
The court pointed out that the per-
mit related to that class of per-
sops who are authorized to deal
with Intoxicating liquors for. non-
beverage purposes. . Purchasers
fromn bootleggers, it added, could
not under any circumstances ob-
tain a permit to make such purch-
ases.
Justice Sutherland' Speaks.
Justice Sutherland stated that
"since long before the adoption of
the eighteenth amendment, it has
been held with practical unani-
mity that, in the absence of an ex-
press statuory provision to the
contrary, the purchase of intoxi-
eating liquor, the sale of which
was prohibited was guilty of no
offense."
Suggesting that Congress may
have considered it more important
to make the purchaser available as
a witness against the bootlegger,
the court added it had failed to
enact any specific legislation mak-
ing the purchase of liquor illegal.
Asserting the government for
many years had not considered the
purchaser guilty, the Justice con-
cluded that Congress in enacting
the Volstead Act had ",deliberately
and designedly omitted to impose
upon the purchaser of liquor for
