FAIRBURY PEOPLE VOTE TO
HAVE SIX SALOONS
Fairbury, Neb., May 17.— A
special election was held in Fair
bury Tuesday for the purpose of
voting on the proposition of
granting licenses to six saloon
keepers. The result was a vic
tory for the “wets.”
The fight was a bitter one and
both sides left no stone unturn
ed to bring success to their
cause. Tbe W. C. T. U. made a
vigorous campaign of the city to
maintain the policy that has pre
vailed in Fairbury since last year
that is a “dry” town. For
the first time since 1896 -dur
ing the past year Fairbury had
no saloons. Both wets and drys
employed a number of automo
biles and were engaged from the
opening to the closing of the
polls in “getting out the votes.”
Quite a surprise was manifest at
the light vote east and both sides
were unable to account for it.
i He proposition ot saloons or
no saloons should have been vot
ed on at the regular municipal
election held April 4, but the
dry administration then in charge
kept the question off the ballote.
It was necessary to take the case
into district court at Beatrice in
order to get the “citizens’ tick
et” on the ballot.
About three weeks ago the city
council of Fairburv passed an
ordinance limiting the number of
saloons in Fairbury to six. For
merly Fairburv had seven sa
loons. The city council also in
creased the licenses $500 per an
num. Under the former custom,
each saloonkeeper paid a license
of $1,000 to conduct a saloon.
This year it will be necessary for
lach saloonkeeper to pay a li
cense of $1,500.
