was not bothering tho old cabarets.
Tho euro ownors who wished to servo
drinks and still rotnlu dancing had
merely built somo sort or a partition
around tho oasis.
Thuy declare those placed more to
bo condemned than tho old-tlmo cab

"Wo aro now faced with an evil
that demands immediate attention.
"Tho dry cabarets begin business
nftor tho saloons close -1 o'clock In

"While we found thoy only sold

Ho said the antl-cabarot ordinance
probably would bo repealed and de
clared many places operate an before
with the aid of subtorfugo.
"We probably will authorize caba

submit nn ordinance closing dance

ncnt and honest and just and sensible
administration would have sway.
Altogether Thomas Carey's candi

It Ih certainly growing In popularity.
