DRUGGISTS WILL NOT
PAY ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS
Council Has Gone Too Far With
Them and Not Far Enough
With Standard Oil Co.
II is a foregone conclusion that
the druggists of this city will not
pay .100 for a permit- to sell
liquor f'r medicinal purposes.
They have so declared. We be
lieve the council made just as
grave a mistake in. raising the
permit fees as they did in lower
nig the occupation tav of the
Standard Oil company, if not
more so. people are wondering
what has come over the members'
of the council that they would
permit such injustices to go on
right under their very noses.
The interest that that august
body took in I he removal of card
tables from cigar stores, pool
halls ami saloons was all uncall
ed for, and much complaint is
raised agains this action.' We
have never heard of any harm re
sulting from this pleasure, and
we have never heard any com
plaint registered except in one
instance, and that could have been
easily remedied by refusing this
one a license.
It is not proper nor right lo
make all suffer for the. evil-doing
of one. We believe the council
went too far in this matter, but
we are pleased to note that every
saloon and pool hall is complying
with the demands of the city dads.
Our saloon men are noted for
their compliance with the laws
and we reiterate that no town, we
don't care in vhat stale located,
has heller regulated and' more
orderly saloons than Plallsmoulh,
and this fact, at least, should
have been considered by those oT
the council who are persistent in
keeping up a turmoil and then
stand on the street corners and
laugh about what they did "to
make people happy."
