(from Ch. 43, par. 172)
The clerk shall record in a well bound book, to be kept in his
office by himself and his successor, the result of the vote upon the
proposition. The result of the vote may be proved in all courts and in all
proceedings by this record or by the official certification of the clerk.
In cases where the record or certification shows that a majority of the
voters voting upon the proposition voted "YES", the record or certification
shall be prima facie evidence that the sale at retail of alcoholic liquor
or the sale at retail of alcoholic liquor other than beer containing not
more than 4% of alcohol by weight or the sale at retail of alcoholic liquor
containing more than 4% of alcohol by weight except in the original package
and not for consumption on the premises, as the case may be, is prohibited
in the political subdivision or precinct or at the licensed
establishment to which such vote was applicable.
