President \iv\ son Issues His Ultimatum to
Saloon Keepera-\ Hot Itoast and Due
The special council meeting last
Mondav night proved to be a very
warm number for the saloon keepers
who had been called on the carpet
President Brv son, and Mr. Bryson was
unquestionablj "loaded for bear"' the
way he went after the saloon men pres
ent. The special meeting had been
called to act on the application of
Frank Morneau for a liquor license.
The only members of the council pres
ent were President Bryson, Recorder
Goulding and Trustee Calev. The
bond of Mr. Morneau for $2,000 was
taken up and approved.
President Bryson remarked that the
saloon keepers were to be present at
8:30, and he began to get a trifle im
patient, just as Magnus Sjoblom and
Paul Janikula walked in. Mr. Nelson
arriv ed early and got in on the ground
floor. As soon as Messrs. Sjoblom and
Janikula arrived Mr. Bryson gave the
saloon keepers a most vigorous carpet
talk and roast and one that will be long
remembered by all who heard it.
charged Janikula and Nelson with hav
ing sold liquor over their saloons on
Sunday, and went after them without
gloves. During his talk Lessard and
Holm came in and he proceeded to ad
dress his remarks to them, and im
pressed all with the fact that he had
ample evidence of gross violations of
the law on Sunday.
"Now I wish to give you all fair
warning. I know what I am talking
about. I have been giving you rope
enough. I propose to have you live up
to the State law which is a higher law
than any village- law, and if I catch
any of you selling any more liquor on
Sundays, and unless you keep all screens
and curtains pulled aside so as to give
a clear view of the saloons from 11
o'clock Saturday night to 5 a. m. Mon
day morning I shall cancel your licenses.
I will be very strict in the future and
mean just exactly what I say."
The roast was taken quietly by the
saloon men, one of whom, however,
attempted to explain that he was
simply scrubbing out his saloon in the
forenoon, but Mr. Bryson cut him
short, informing him that he had all
the evidence necessary and that he
didn't care to discuss the matter or
listen to any explanations.
The council adjourned immediately
after the "heart-to-heart" talk.
President Bryson says that he does
not propose to be fooled and will en
force the law, which is being flagrantly
