2014.011.053 - Petition

Initiative No. 13 to the Legislature was filed with the Secretary of State on August 23, 1946, by the Washington Temperance Association. It was intitled: "AN ACT, prohibiting the retail sale of beer and wine by any person other than the Sate of Washington, repealing all provisions of existing law pertaining to licensing of retail sale of beer and wine, revoking existing licenses and providing penalties." It would have allowed the sale of wine, beer, and liquor only in Washington State liquor stores and prohibited imbibing in other than private premises.

The Eureka Saloon began in 1893, started by Benjamin Franklin "B. F." McCracken at the NW corner of 4th and Commercial.

McCracken led an adventurous life and was "a prominent figure in the mining camps of Leadville and Cripple Creek, Co, their booms in 1870s." McCracken's son William "Bill" McCracken was a ke
