I'resi'ient Sir^ son Issues Ills Lltujiatum to saloon Ivet-pei 1 Hot Itoast and Due i1* arIlll!Q. The special council meeting last Mondav night proved to be a \ery warm number for the saloonkeepers who had been called on the caipet bv President Brj son. and Mr Brj son was unquestionably "loaded for beai"' the wav he went after the saloon men pres ent. The special meeting had been called to act on the application of Frank Morneau for a liquor license. The only members of the council pres ent ere President Brv son Recorder Goulcling and Trustee Caleu The bond of Mr. Morneau for $2,000 was taken up and approved President Brv son remarked that the saloon keepers were to be present at 8:30, and he began to get a trifle im patient, just as Magnus Sjoblom and Paul Janikula walked in. Mr. Nelson arrived early and got in on the ground floor. As soon as Messrs. Sjoblom and Janikula arrived Mr. Bryson gave the saloon keepers a most vigorous carpet talk and roast and one that will be long remembered bj all who heard it. He charged Janikula and Nelson with hav ing sold liquor over their saloons on Sundav, and went after them without gloves. During his talk Lessard and Holm came in and he proceeded to ad dress his remarks to them, and im pressed all ith the fact that he had ample evidence of gross violations of the law on Sunday. "Now I wish to give vou all fair warning. I know what I am talking about. I have been giving you rope enough. I propose to have you live up to the State law which is a higher law than any village- law, and if I catch any of you selling anv more liquor on Sundays, and unless ou keep all screens and curtains pulled aside so as to give a clear view of the saloons from 11 o'clock Saturday night to 5 a. m. Mon day morning I shall cancel your licenses. I will be very strict in the future and mean just exactly what I say." The roast was taken quietlj by the saloon men, one of whom, however, attempted to explain that he was simply scrubbing out his saloon in the forenoon, but Mr. Bryson cut him short, informing him that he had all the evidence necessary and that he didn't care to discuss the matter or listen to anv explanations. The council adjourned immediately after the "heart-to-heart" talk. President Bryson says that he does not propose to be fooled and will en force the law, which is being flagranti} violated EASTER SERVICES.
