For there will b no more, tut key ruffian or other harmlcMi In front of the bar sports. You may not even be. permllted to throw dice with your best fr end o seii w io tiavs for tho dr nk. That kind of chance taking Is now classed ns gambling, and every holder of a lliiunr license is forbidden to allow It In his place. Notices to this effect have recently been sent to most of tho cafes In the city by bonding companies that have made themselves lesponslbln for their good character. The letter of Al bert 12. Sheridan, who represents a dozen of these companies, states that Inasmuch as the highest court of the State ha de cided that gambling In any form or th presence of slot machines In a cafe Is a violation of the liquor tax law and Is sufficient ground for the revocation of the liquor license as well as the bond the bonding companies Insist that mich fea tures be removed, Several breweries In close connection wllh the retail trade havo sent similar notification. Cafo owners who have always been careful to prevent professional gambling in their Places declare they rnnnot see the harm of raffling a turkay among friends, as an Indoor sport. 1.. ..ir in tiiiik ni, tin. linn nun i.in tn the GIRL DDES AFTER DANCE.
