100 YEARS AGO Sept. 30, 1913 Attorney General W. L. Moose yesterday rendered an opinion in which he held that it would not be a violation of the statutes of the state of Arkansas for a liquor dealer in this state to write to various prospective customers in dry territory in Arkansas personal, individual typewritten letters, soliciting orders for liquor. The law in this respect, the attorney general holds, makes it unlawful for liquor dealers to solicit orders for the sale of liquor through agents, circulars, posters or newspaper advertisements. The opinion was rendered at the request of C. M. Erwin of Newport.
