New Saloon License
Ordinance is Ready
For Final Passage
The new saloon license ordinance wa
presented at the adjourned meeting of
the city council yesterday afternoon and
advanced to Its se.-ond reading, and then
laid over for final passage next Monday
night. This was due to the absence of
Alderman Younkerman and the announce
ment of Alderman Fisher that he would
InalBt upon every member of the council
being present and bearing his full share
of responsibility for the ordinance. Mayor
Maloney also suggested Hint It would be
necessary to take up the ordinance and
pass It section by section.
The ordinance fixe the license at ii.VH
a year by specifying that the mim nf
$11" shall bo paid each month In addition
to the regular stnte mulct tax of VfT a
yiar. The council, however, redded
somewhat from the position first as
sumed In regard to wholesalers and fixed
the wholcsule license at !) a year. In
stead of $9ot, n at first contemplated.
Section three of the ordinance defines
what constitute wholesaling and de
clare: The business of selling intoxicating
ll'liiors at wholesale shall .be construed
under this ordinance to mean nil such
t.eraons. firm or corporations as shall
sell Intoxicating ll'iuor. To retail deni
er, holding permlu or licenses under
resolutions of consent parted by the cltv
council In any tiantU . or to 'others hsn
licensed dealers, In original pacaaae oi
not Irs than case lots oi two dozen
Inige bottles, or three dosen small bot
tles, or ken of not les than four gallon
cnpaelty for malt liquors and In ciuantl-
tie of not ies tnan live gaiinos oi
whlaky. wine or all other spirituous and
Intoxicating lltUor to other than
licensed dealer In quantities less thun
hove limited.
Objection was expressed to the amount
of liquor specified on the ground that It
was too large and this may be modified
to prevent It doing on Injustice to itotne
of the wholesalers, particularly such as
the Jarvls 'Wine company, who conduct
no bar; but sell In original packages a
small a single quarts of wines nnd
brandies, where about all of the sacra
mental and table wine sold In the city
are bought. There may be some modifi
cation of thl section. -
Hectlon four also Invest the ordinance
with additional Interest, for It holds the
property liable for the 'payment of the
license. Thl section says:
That all real estate within which or
whereon Intoxicating liquors are sold or
kept with Intent to sell, subject to the
provisions of this ordinance, shall be sub
ject to nnd held for the payment of the
additional tax heroin provided for. and
uch tax shall become a Hen on said real
estate from thet time the same shall be
cettlfled bv the city clerk of said city, of
Council Illuffs to the auditor of Fottawat-
tamle county, as hereinafter provided.
