THE LICENSE ORDINANCE.
A Meeting Of Citizens To Discuss The Mat
ter This Afternoon-A Mistaken
The license ordinance passed by
city council at its last meeting has
been the general subject :of conver
sation on the streets since its publi
cation. Some are opposed to:the
system and there are others who,
while they favor a license system,
think that the scale of prices adopt
ed by council is not equitable.
A petition has been circulated and
very generally signed by the busi
ness men calling a meeting to be
held in the opera house this after
noon at 4 o'clock to discuss the
matter and, if deemed advisable, to
take action requesting couicil to
amend the ordinance.
'I'here are very many in Newher

that it interfered with the sale of
the produce of their farms and that
1hey could not even bring a horse

without paying a license. This is
entirely an erroneous impression.

whatever to do with the sale of home
