lU-furm In Liquor Traffic.
On and after May 13 nert licenses is
sued to storekeepers in this city to sell
liquor not to be drank on the premises
will cost $-00 a year instead of $"0 as
heri tof ore. The new rate, which applies
to those whose sales aggregate less than
2,500 a year, was agreed upon by tho
excise board on Tuesday. Its adoption
is a salutary, practicable and proper
uieanre of excise reform.
It is salutary because it will tend to
restrict the evil of surreptitious drink
ing in grocery, provision and drug stores
which sire patronized by women, and in
which tho charge for liquor is added to
tho cost of household commodities.
It is practicable, because it will aug
ment the city's excise revenues without
a corresponding increase in the number
of saloons or in the amount of liquor
It is proper, because it will do away
with the unfair distinction which has
heretofore existed between ordinary sa
loons where liquor is sold openly and
stores where tho same article is sold pri
vately. Xew York Sun.
