There appeared in the daily pa-
pers of the 8th a petition fc. a
saloon on Capitol Hill Now with
the knowledge that at least 'JO per
cent of the citizens of this town
are bitterly opposed to a saloon
being opened here under the pres-
ent conditions and in view of the
fact that the Business Men’s Club
and Chamber of Commerce as a
body and as individuals pledged
themselves to use all honorable
means to kee]i a saloon front our
midst’ and knowing the fate of the
petition already published, we
think the present petitioner will
simply spend his time and his
money for naught. The saloon and
it’s effects pro and con have been
set forth and it has been settled in
the minds of the leading business
men on the Hill that its influence
would he detrimental to the inter-
ests of the Town.
