Now that the new' license term of
the city is to begin, keen interest is
t,sigain manifested in the measures to
be taken by Mayor Schaffer as to the
regulation of the saloons. It has been
announced that there 'will be a num-
L'er, of saloons that , will be denied li
censes absolutely. In other cases the
present proprietors will, it is expected,
not be given a license, but the permit
will not be refused to the location.
Something like 20 saloons were said
to be on the list slated to receive no
. further permits, at least none in the
' ; name of -the present proprietor Just
how far Mayor Schaffer will go in en
forcing the orders which He issued re
mains to be 6een. The applications
for renewals of licenses are now com
ing in, and already Mayor Schaffer
yesterday allowed one license, that of
James O'Connor. The mayor has'siaf
ed that he will issue no license until
he has personal knowlotfge that his
recent orders . regaining stalls and
wine rooms ha-ftf been complied with
by the applicant.
Brtlrr Bond Required;
Witb'this license term, all saloon
keepers must furnish individual sure
ties oij their bonds. Heretofore such
surety was furnished by but about 30
of the saloons, the other 66 giving
bonds secured by the association of
brewers and wholesale liquor dealers
organized for that purpose. '
Withheld Blank Bonds, ;
This month, when City Clerk 31. T.
' Kudgren, according to a long estab
lished custom, sent to the saloon-
. keepers the blanks to be used for their
bond, he failed to-send these papers
to about 30 proprietors. This was
done at the request of the mayor.
The result is that almost every one
of these 30 saloonkeepers is troubled
with chills now. The mayor's' purpose
was to call the proprietors of these 30
places to his 'office: Of the 30 there are
some who will be allowed renewed
licenses, but others, probably 15, If re
ports are true, will be forced to quit
business. At almost every hour of
the day for several days the mayor's
office has been sought out by saloon
keepers and their friends. Some of
those who were informed that their
, application for at license would be re
fused summoned their political friends
to -their aid, and serrt emissaries to
the mayor to plead in their behalf.
Nome to Go.
There7 are a number of locations
which, will be licensed again, and
among these, in addition to the three
whieh have been heretofore announc
ed. It is said that the mayor will not
issue permits to the three places on
Eighteenth street just north of Second
avenue, The Club, and Z. McMahon's
and R. Shannon's places. Others re
ported to be under the mayor's ban
are the notorious Blue Goose on First
avenue and the saloon on the corner
of Twentieth street and First avenue,

PONY DASHES MADLY
Newspaper Delivery Cart Figures in
Exciting Runaway From
, East to West End.
The pony drawing m one of the Bi
jou newspaper delivery .carts took
fright this morning, in the east end
of the -city and finally ended up ex
hausted in the lower end of town.
It tore threw the business part of
town, trying, as some one said, to
see how much of-it it could-cover.
The men nutting in the switch at
Seventeenth street were forced to
fcatter rapidly to get out of his way.
It was thought that the animal would
stop at the Bijou news depot but it
clashed on down Second avenue. The
driver of the lower route wagon
caught the pony finally near Garnsey
square. Very fortunately, the wild
run resulted in no injuries to pedes
trians or the pony. -
