POOL TABLE LICENSE FEES
Saloon Keepers Who Paid Will Not
Get Them Back,
Neither 3Iuy Tliey TJuo the Tablet,
According to the Ruling of
tlio Exclao Board.
A. good many saloon-keepers inn the city
have been taught by experience the -value
of Davy Crockett's maxim, "Be sure you're
right, then go ahead."
These men have procured a license of the
assessor lo run a pool table In their pluccs,
and now find that under a ruling of the ex
cise board they will not be permitted to
employ the tnble, and that there are no pro
visions of law under which they can obtain
a refund of the license fee.
Many saloon-keepers under former excise
boards were permitted to keep a pool table
in a room adjoining the bar, the two being
separated by a lattice partition only.
Tliepresenl excise board changed this regu
lallouand required the partition to be more
substantial, the regulation providing that
there shall Ira a solid wall of separation,
and that there shall be no door of communi
cation between the rear of the bar, as for
merly. Either through misinformation or by wll
ful disregard of the requirement, thesaloon
Keepers applied for the pool license with
out consulting the excl-e buard, ard they
now find that they will have to depend upon
getting bills of relief through Congress In
order lo obtain a restoraUon or the fees. -
The board of excise has granted but few
Recuses for bars that are run In conjunc
tion with poolrooms, and In each case the
applicant has been required to observe the
rule as to partitions.
