The man who likes tn go to tlie corner
cafe to get his Thanksgiving and again
his ChriBtinas turkey by a twenty-five
cent chance In n raffl Is likely to be dls
appointed this year. For there will b no
more, tut key ruffian or other harmlcMi In
front of the bar sports. You may not
even be. permllted to throw dice with your
best fr end o seii w io tiavs for tho dr nk.
That kind of chance taking Is now
classed ns gambling, and every holder of
a lliiunr license is forbidden to allow It
In his place. Notices to this effect have
recently been sent to most of tho cafes
In the city by bonding companies that
have made themselves lesponslbln for
their good character. The letter of Al
bert 12. Sheridan, who represents a dozen
of these companies, states that Inasmuch
as the highest court of the State ha de
cided that gambling In any form or th
presence of slot machines In a cafe Is a
violation of the liquor tax law and Is
sufficient ground for the revocation of the
liquor license as well as the bond the
bonding companies Insist that mich fea
tures be removed, Several breweries In
close connection wllh the retail trade havo
sent similar notification.
Cafo owners who have always been
careful to prevent professional gambling
in their Places declare they rnnnot see
the harm of raffling a turkay among
friends, as an Indoor sport.
