L. T. Frazier, Justice of the Peace Police Court, Bisbee, Arizona
MAKE every citizen, either male or female, who has reached the age of 21 years, and all citizens who shall reach the age of 21 years after the passage of this bill, a non- commissioned, non-salaried prohibition enforcement officer of the United States of America and provide a fee of $10 for each arrest resulting in a conviction, either by testimony submitted before a federal court or by a plea of guilty, and a mileage fee of 25 cents per mile for the total miles actually traveled after making the arrest to make disposition of the defendant.
Let Congress appropriate enough money to print 50,- 000,000 copies of the 18th Amendment and 50,000,000 copies of this proposed provision for the purpose of distribution, one to every citizen who is affected by it, showing each citizen's authority for enforcing the 18th Amendment.
That the citizen prohibition enforcement officer making the arrest shall make claim for mileage at the rate of 25 cents per mile for the miles actually traveled with the defendant to the nearest office of a United States commissioner, or a commissioned prohibition enforcement officer, where the citizen officer shall then give up custody of the defendant, and execute a complaint for violation of the 18th Amendment.
That the citizen prohibition enforcement officer's claim for arrest fee and mileage fee must be filed with and approved by the federal court before which the defendant is arraigned or tried.
