SALOON MAN'S THREAT ON A $1000 LICENSE
Tiie Government Is contemplating the exaction o. a retail license tax
of $1,000 per year ln Washington. 1). C. Will Whelan, the sweet singer of
the National Capital, tells In tho following lines how the saloon .Man will
get even with the legislators:
"A thousand-dollar license," said the man behind the bar,
As he lightly knocked the ashes from his No. 2 clgnr,
"Well. I guess that I can stand It If tho other rellow can,
Ilut I'll havo to shapo my business on the thousand-dollar plan.
There's an economic maxim that Is older than the hills
'The consumer pays the taxes, tnough the devil pays the bills."
And it Undo Sam Insists upon this thousand-dollar raid,
I will havo to shift tho burden to tho shoulders ot tho trade
Or rather to their stomachs, It their stomachs can sustain
And their kidneys stand the presame ot this thousand-dollar strain.
"I'm not In business lor myvhcalth" I don't profess to bo
A millionaire philanthropist, Itlio old man Carnegie;
Hut I've bunt a reputation, nnd I'vo served my guestB for jcars
With int. finest of old whiskies and tho rarest ot old beers;
And the rlcnest Juice that ever flowed In fragrunco from tho vine,
Has Hashed and foamed and flamed across this quaint old bar of mine,
And purple tints and amber glints or every ago and dime,
Llko liquid roses wreathed about the flowing locks or Time.
'TIs tho pride of my profession nnd the glory or my art
To c,heer the drooping spirit nnd to Bootho the Jaded heart;
To build the wasted tissues up; to strengthen and console.
I Till tho Inner templo sparkles like the sparkle ol the bowl.
"Such a business Is an honor, nud n pleasure, too, besides.
To the patron who supports It, and tho landlord who provides.
Hut It legal Carrlo Ration wield tno govcrnmenta! ax,
I will haie to gauge my liquors In accordance with tho rncls.
And In touch them up so ugniiy that you neier can ueiine,
Where tho whisky turns to wntor and tho water turns to wine
And I'll drown them, and I'll clruncli them, and I'll do my leiel best,
Till the dear old oaken-lmcket sighs for solitude and rest;
it ml I'll mix them, and I'll flx them,
Till the kidneys holler 'murder' and
And I'll trim them to a finish, mid I'll trim tho into a stand,
And I'll trim tllem to a finish, and I'll trim them to n stand.
