THE ARGUS, WJK DXESDAY, JANUARY 21, 1903.
X. 1. Ely, of the law firm of Ely &
Bush, left last night for I'aducab.
Ky., where he will take passage on
the Ten Broeck as the guest of Capt.
McCaffrey for a trip up the Tennessee
river as far s Florence, Ala. From
Florence he will go to Chattanooga,
J.ookout Mountain imiiI other historic
places before proceeding to Florida
or Xew Orleans. Mr. Ely has been
'suffering from a - head affection as
the result of a fall he had while
alighting from a street car.
Mayor Becker returned at 8 o'clock
last night from his trip as a member
of the special committee of the city
council on the question of water rates.
From the depot he went to his office
on West Second street, looked over
1 he large acruinulat ion of his mail,
and having sorted letters he did not
throw in the waste basket, took up
pen and paper and wrote an order for
tearing out the stalls in saloons and
providing that th'e doors must be tak
en off the wine rooms so that an offi
cer or any other person walking
through the building might see the
occupants of the minor apartments.
Mayor Itecker said: "1 have been
keeping in touch with municipal" mat
ters here while I was awav as far as
convenience would permit. I noted
Ihe statements of the press regarding
the wine rooms and the notoriety the
city was gaining throughout the
country. I was surprised at the as
sertions made in the papers and in
the pulpit ami took steps to acquaint
myself with the. facts. I discovered
that the privileges accorded certain
jn-ople were being abused, and that
"where an inch had been given in the
interest of the general desire for 1H
eral government, a mile had been tak
en in ma n v instances. This thing has
got to stop, and no one is more de
sirous of regulating the wine room
than I, now that I hate convinced my
self that it is really a menace to the
people of the city, particularly to the
young people. If privileges are so
certain to be abused they will not be
extended. I'm going to have the door
torn off. every wine room in the city,
so Mi at what goes on within will not
be behind closed doors."
An announcement that will be real
liens to many people of the city is
that of the death of Charles Henry

alysis, at his home in Cedar Itapids.
