HJT.Vr BACK ON THE XIOTEL KEEPERS,
Bat at the Threat to Divide th Tovrn of
Hunter tlio C'ommlesloriere Weakened.
IIUNTEn, June 20. The proprietors of the
Catsklll hotels ln Groono county havo beon
having n tusslo with tho F-xclso Commission
ers of tho town of Hunter this Bprtnc. Tho
township, lying in tho centroof Groene coun
ty, Includes tho Catsklll hotel and boarding
houso region : among tho hotels Are the Kaat
orskill Houso and tho Mountain House. A
good pnrt of tho profit of theso houses oomos
from tho bar trado; not that the drinking Is
excessive, but thnt many pooplo who spend
their summers there are accustomed totako
wino with tholr dinnor nnd an occasional
cocktail beforehand. The proprietors expect
ed to get their llconsos as a mnttor of courso
this year, because nttho town election, whon
tho Fxclso Commissioners woro chosen, tho
llcenso men dofentod tho no-llconso men. nnd
tho Kxciso Hoard ns clocted woro In faTor of
granting licenses. Hut after they woro cloctod.
nnd before tho applications were granted, a
mijorlty of tho llonrd were converted at a ro
llgious revival, and not only stopped drinking
themselves, but declined to grnnt licenses to
anybody to sell anything intoxlcnting. Tlm
neare-t plnco whero a drink could bo obtained
was the adjoining town of Catsklll.
The line between Catsklll and Hunter Is
drawn nt thn foot of the mountains on which
tlio K.iutui skill and Mountain Houses nro.
There Is, however, such a difference In height
betweon tho two towns that tho law
could not bo evadod by setting up bars Insldo
tho Catsklll town line, where sales could bo
made with delivery nt the lintel tables. There
scorned no way out of tho difficulty except to
luivu tho dividing lino altered so that it would
run up to the top of tho mountain. In which
caso the hotels could got licenses from tho
('nt-kill Hoard. The pooplo of Catsklll wero in
favor of this move, which would hnvo brought
valuable proporty into their town without ad
ditional cxponse. reducing tholr tax lovy nnd
incionsing tho incomo from llcensos. Hut at
tlio throat of division tho taxpayers of Hunter
beenmn nbirmed and brought n pressure to
benrontho P.xciso Commissioners, which re
sulted in nrrangomonts satisfactory to the
Hotel keepers. The matter has caused n great
deal of talk among tho peoploof Greene nnd
Ulstor counties, and when tho voters of Hun
ter next elect a llonrd of Uxciso Commlsrloti

mind botween tho tlmo of election and the
