Citizens Are Arrayed Against
Proposed Bar Room.
At Railway Transfer Station on
Brightwood Avenue.
Residents of District, Takoma Park,
Eli go, Woodside, Forest Glen,
etc., in Movement.
A largely attended meeting of citizens of
the District of Columbia and of Maryland
was held last evening at 8 o'clock In Ta
koma Hotel. North Takoma. to take steps
the prevent the establishment of a bar room
on Brightwood avenue, at the District line.
Among those present were residents from
Woodside, Forest Glen, Linden, Sllgo, North
Takoma. Takoma and Brightwood avenue
In the vicinity of the District line.
The assemblage was called to order by
Mr. Henry Oldys, who explained the object
of the meeting and called for the election
of a permanent chairman and secretary.
Mr. Wllmer G. Piatt, mayor-elect of Ta
koma Park, Md., was unanimously elected
chairman and Councilman L. R. Grabllf
was elected secretary of the meeting.
Mr. Grabill read a set of resolutions,
which, it was stated, set forth all of the
facts of the case. The resolutions recited
that "an application has been made to the
excise board of the District of Columbia
for a license for a barroom to be opened in
the building owned by the Waters estate
on Brightwood avenue, near the District
"That the granting of such license would
be extremely objectionable to an over
whelming majority of the people who reside
in the neighborhood, and other patrons of
the Brightwood railway, who are directly
concerned, for the following reasons:
"1. The location of the proposed bar room
being within fifty yards of the line between
Montgomery county, Md., and the District
of Columbia, proper policing would be im
possible, and unusual opportunities would
be offered to disorder and crime. This was
amply demonstrated when liquor was for
merly sold at this point.
"2. The establishment of a bar room on
the borders of Montgomery county and Ta
ke ma Park, both of which prohibit the sale
of liquor, would nullify the wishes of the
citizens of those communities and introduce
the disorderly element they have endea
vored to keep out.
"3. The place being the limit of travel j
for a single fare, and at the inter- |
section of Brightwood avenue with roads
leading from Takoma and vicinity, and
there being no cross roads or streets open
ing Into Brightwood avenue from either
side for more than a mile south of this
point, a large number of citizens are com
pelled to take the cars here, including
many ladies and school children. Al! cars
going north to Forest Glen and intermedi
ate points stop immediately In front of the
proposed bar room for about five min
utes, waiting for the down car. The loca
tion is thus objectionable from the unusual
number it would expose to annoyance and
danger from the disorder it would intro
"4. The vicinity is now orderly, quiet
and safe, and the homes of hundreds of
law-abiding, respectable citizens are
within a comparatively short distance.
' The establishment of a bar room at this
central point would make waiting for the
cars or passing to or from them not only
very unpleasant, but positively danger
ous for women and children, especially as
the roads leading to the north, east and
west are not lighted, are lonely at night,
and are entirely without police protec
"3! Property values and rents would de
crease, the growth of the community
would be checked, and undesirable citi
zens would be attracted?in short, the
opening of the bar room at this point
would be a blight of the worst kind.
"iV There are two licensed places at
which liquor can be purchased, about a
mile south of the District line, and there
is, therefore, no demand for a further
extension of the liquor traffic In our dl
j rection. Whatever traffic results will be
created by the opportunity, and not the
effect of any demand.
"7. There are now no vested rights In
the saloon business here, as the present
building is new and has never been occu
pied for any purpose.
"That the citizens of both the District
of Columbia and of Montgomery county re
elding in this vicinity and affected by the
matter, whose signatures are hereto ap
pended, have assembled this 2<1 day of
June, 1JJ00. in North Takoma, to prevent,
If possible, the danger to our families and
to our peace, tranquillity and prosperity,
which is seriously threatened by the es
tablishment of such a place upon our bor
The Resolutions.
It was therefore resolved "that we do
most earnestly and vigorously protest
against the Issuance to Jiynes F. Cole, or
to any other person, of a license for the
sale of liquor at the place herein described
now or at any future time.
"That we respectfully ask that the ex
cise board of the District of Columbia re
fuse to grant any such license.
"That we pledge ourselves to continue
our fight against the sale of liquor at this
point as long as effortB are made to es
tablish or maintain It, and that a signed
copy of these resolutions be forwarded to
the excise board of the District of Colum
Mr. Grabill stated further that the excise
board of the District would not consider a
reopening of the protest which was filed
last fall against the opening of a bar room
at this point. He said that It would be
necessary to present a fresh petition to the
excise board before any action could be
taken by the board. The law provides, he
said further, that a notice shall be posted
seven days before an application is made
to the excise board.
This expires Monday. Up to a late hour
yesterday afternoon no application had
been filed with the requisite number of
signers for a license.
At the suggestion of Mr. George C. Wil
son It was decided to request a public hear
ing before the excise board. The secretary
was also requested to present the petition,
with the signatures, to that board in per
Mr. Old stated a number of personal let
ters bad been sent to the excise board
against the licensing of a saloon at the
point named. He urged that other similar
communications be forwarded to tne board.
An Alleged Scheme.
Mayor Piatt said there was a rumor
afloat to the effect that the Waters estate
had been divided so as to get a sufficient
number of signers for the application for
a bar room license. He added that of
course the excise board would take Into
consideration the deeding of land for suoh
purpose should the report prove to be true.
Mr. George C. Wilson declared he did not
believe the applicant for the license could
legally complete his application.
"This protest should be made so em
phatic asd overwhelming." added Mr. Wil
son, "that we will not be disturbed by
similar applications for liquor license every
thirty days or so."
Mrs. F. R. Burkett of Forest Glen ad
dressed the meeting and called attention to
the many dangers which would undoubtedly
arise if a barroom should lie established at
the District line. She said such a place
would prove a menace to the employes of
the electric railroad, who might occasion
ally drop tn and Indulge while on duty. She
appealed In behalf of the children and the
young ladies who are constantly obliged to
use the electric cars.
Women Take a Hand.
' We women sometimes have a little pow
er," said Mrs. Burkett. "We secured the
signatures of one hundred ladies to the pro
test all the way to Silver Springs."
She spoke of the temptation that would 1
be presented to the motormen and conduct- '
org by a saloon at the stopping place at
Brlghtwood avenue and the District Une.
"These men." she added, "now patronixe
a pump of cool water near that point. With
a barroom there It might be different. We
women will work hard and add our mite In
the good cause."
Mrs Burkett's remarks were greeted by
a generous outburst of applause.
Mr. Benjamtn Rush of North Takoma sug
gested that Secretary Grabill communicate
with Vice President George II. Harries of
the Washington Railway and Electric Com
pany and seek his assistance In preventing
the establishment of such a resort. The
suggestion was approved by the meeting.
He also said he believed Gen. Harries was
in full sympathy with the movement and
would co-operate with the clt!*ens.
Secretary Grabill said Gen. Harries had
promised to attend a public hearing be
fore the excise board, if such hearing is
A great many people drive down In their
vehicles to the point where It Is proposed
to establish the saloon, according to Mr.
Stewart. They come from Sandy Spring
and other points, and some of them leave
their teams at the livery stable. If the
temptation Is there for the drivers to
drink, he thought, they will do so in
many instances.
"That was the case," he added, when
the notorious ' speak-easy' was In that
locality." .
He spoke of the accidents that mlgh.t
result because of intoxicated drivers; also
how objectionable the proposed bar room
would be to the school children, "who
would have to wait for cars In front of a
Spontaneous Movement.
Mr. Wilson again urged that a hearty,
spontaneous movement against the pro
posed saloon be entered upon. In that
way "we can lay the ghost for a while, at
Mrs. Burkett was invited to circulate
another petition for signatures, and the
chairman suggested that she had thus
gotten herself In trouble.
"I came here looking for trouble," re
plied Mrs. Burkett, smilingly, her Bally
being greeted with applause.
Another speaker said a fight had been
waged for fourteen years against either
a saloon or speak-easy at the point named,
and he declared the people were now very
much In earnest in this matter.
Mr. Jordan of Silver Springs informed th%
meeting that the citizens of that place were
opposed to a saloon at the District line,
and were preparing a petition to be for
warded to the exPise board.
Some Signatures.
At the conclusion of the meeting the fol
lowing signatures were appended to the
petition, which will be presented to the
excise board tomorrow morning:

?William H. Cecil, flfty-three years of ag?.
whose home Is at 1019 2d street northeast,
had a narrow escape from electrocution yes?
terday afternoon while working on the
Grant road near* Connecticut avenue aa ?
lineman for the Chesapeake and Potomac
Telephone Company. He was rendered un
conscious, but recovered in a short time
after he had been attended by a physician.
The incident caused excitement In the Ten
leytown neighborhood, an exaggerated re
port of the affair having reached the town.
It appears that several men In the em
ploy of the telephone company were wori
ing on Crant road stringing wlrjs near the
country home of Dr. Charles Richardson,
Cecil being upon the ground carrying a coll
of wire. Part of the wire came in contact
with an overhead electric light wire and the
lineman was given a shock sufficiently se
vere to throw him to the ground.
The instant he fell one of the other men
shouted for help, and Harvey Wright, the
foreman, attempted to cut the wire near
the coil that was then wrapped about the
unconscious man. He did not suoceed. how
ever, for as soon as the instrument he used
came in contact with the wire he received
a shock and his hand was painfully burned.
His experience caused him to drop the in
strument and make another effort to save
the lineman, but before he had a chance to
accomplish results a lineman who was on a
pole succeeded in cutting the wire and shut
ting oft the current.
Mrs. Richardson sent for Dr. Ray. ana
the latter soon reached Cecil. He treated
the patient until the latter had fully re
covered from the shock. He was able to go
home. _ , . .
The burns received by Mr. Wright were
not serious. He resumed his work after the
excitement had subsided.
