Decided December 15, 1941

Syllabus

A statute of Arkansas, requiring a permit for the transportation of intoxicating liquor through the State, which may be obtained upon application, for a nominal fee -- the object of the regulation being merely to identify those who engage in such transportation, their routes and points of destination, thus enabling local officials to insure transportation without diversion, in conformity with the permit -- is not violative of the commerce clause of the Federal Constitution. P. 314 U. S. 396.

201 Ark. 1123, 148 S.W.2d 656, affirmed.
