our citizens questioned whether thu
city could bu tun without creating
a debt equal to thu IOHH of rev nue

were licensed all those years , it establishes
tablishos the faot that the lack of
saloon license has not boon the
cause of the deficit in the school
revenue , but rather on account of
low aiacBsmontB. There is aufil-
