Tan IJcmus ox BILLIARD TAsLe.--W hear
that a general complaint exists among the pro.
prietora of biliard aloous agaiat wht they con
sider an exessive tenax o their profsslion. The
license on each billiard table is sevety.five doe
ars, or equal to fifteen per cent. of the original
cost of the table, takia five hundred dollars as
the average cost of each. Billiard playing is a
most innocent pastime, and in many cases, no t
doubt, Las the effect of turning many a young
man away from vicious habits. The council might a
therefore, with much propriety, consider the con- 1
plaint. of the billiard a'oon owners, and reduce
bhe license, if, according to the assertion, it is not t
proportionate with that on othe profeions
