Pomona, Cal., has adopted a
higli liquor licenso ordinance,
which provides for two saloons at
a license foe of $1000 nnd under
bonds of $5000 each, lt 1ms been
opposed by the extreme prohibi
tionists, who aro agaiuBt any
licensing of the traflic. From an
interview in the Examiner with
Win. A. Bell, tho attorney -who
drew tho law, tho following state
mont of its provisions is Ruined:
'The law is tho result of the
opinions of peoplo who have given
study and thought to theevils of
saloons. The contrul idea in
preparing that law, which seems
to have made such a sensation,
was to provide a place where men
who claimed they must drink
could be accommodated, and
where none of the allurements
that win young men may exist.
That is why we have decided to
run saloons without seats for tho
weary, games and newspapers,
books and pictures to interest
people there. The section in the
ordinance which provides that
the fronts of saloons shall
be level and flush on
a main street, and half of glass
so that an unobstructed view may
be had to all passors-by on the
street, was insorted in order to
throw publicity about the liquor
traffic. A host of modern temper
ance advocates say that publicity
will do more than all else to de
crease tho drinking of intoxicants.
We propose that if any wife or
daughter or mother wants to
know if her son is in a saloon, sho
can ascertain without going into
"There is a provision that if
any wife, mother, daughter or
sister, who believes money that
should go for her support is spent
in a saloon, she may make an affi
davit that ,-her husband, son,
father or brother is a bard drink
er. The City Marshal must noti
fy the saloon-keepers to sell no
more to that man under penalty of
forfeiture of license and $5,000
bonds. The man's name is posted
at tho back of tho bar bo that there
can be no mistake about the ord
ers. We also provided that there
should bo no rear door or window
to a saloon, in order to make every
man who wants to ' patronize
saloons go in and come out at tho
front door and in full view of
