TWENTY-TWO SALOON PERMITS
REVOKED BY MAYOR
Twenty-two saloon licenses were
revoked by Mayor Thompson yester
day. Friends of the mayor believe this
closing up of 22 saloons which vio
lated the Sunday closing order Will
"save his face" and be a foil against
the attacks that have been directed
at him from many sources.
Discussing the mayor's attitude
after he had closed the saloons, E. J.
Davis. stipjt of the Anti-Saloon
league, sala: ,
"The mayor seems to think we
ought to be grateful to him for doing
his simple duty. Why should our
organization hold itself indebted to a
man who does just what duty re
quires he should do."
Anthony Cermak, sec'y of the
United Societies, denied vigorously
the mayor's charge that he had en
tered into a coalition with the drys.
"I am opposed to Davis and Lyle,
the dry leaders," said Cermak. "I
want an open Sunday. I stand for
the same principles I stood for on
March 15, 1915, when Wm. Hale
Thompson signed the pledge of the
United Societies that he would not
hinder the Sunday business of saloons."
