HIGH LICENSE, SUNDAY CLOSING Principal Provisions of New Ordinance Regulating Saloons in Hamilton —Council fleets Tonight. A stormy session of the town coun cil was held Monday evening. A peti tion praying for annexation of River view and a remonstrance protesting against the same were presented and, it appearing that a majority were opposed to annexation the petition was rejected. Seven applications for saloon li censes under the new ordinance were presented, but as they were not ac companied by bonds no action was taken. Five of the saloon men ap peared before the council and protest t d against the restrictions imposed by the new ordinance. They particularly objected to the requirement of a penal bond and claim that the license is ex cessive. The matter was discussed for more than two hours. The coun cil "stood pat,'' however, and refused to amend the ordinance in any parti cular. The aldermen took the posi tion that if the license was too high to carry on the saloon business at a pro fit nobody was forced to engage in it. The saloon men were given two more days to secure their bonds and the council will meet again tonight to con sider applications for licenses. The ordinance regulating the issu ance of licenses and the manner of conducting saloons within the town of Hamilton was finally passed at the adjourned meeting of the town council last Wednesday evening. The meas ure passed by a unanimous vote, May or McMurry and Aldermen Peterson, Southwick, O'Hara, Howley and Fla herty being present and participating. R. A. O'Hara was appointed by the council to fill the unexpired term of Alderman Thomas Coffey who is now at Tonopah Nev.

It fixes ihe'license for each saloon at £480 per annum payable in two equal installments.

A synopsis of the measure follows: Section 1.— Providing for a retail liquor dealer's license of £480 annually.

Upon motion of W. H. Roberts the committee on new industries and ad vertising was authorized to have 10,000 folders printed. These folders are to be illustrated with views of the indus trial and scenic attractions of the Bit ter Root valley and filled with fact« and figures and other tersely stated descriptive matter. Upon suggestion of Dr. F. F. Ellis it was determined to make a special feature of the Clear water hunting grounds. Miles Romney urged the advisability of holding a county fair this year, em phasizing the point that Ravalli, by reason of her natural resources and other advantages, may easily eclipse any other county of the state in such an enterprise. After some discussion the association unanimously voted m favor of holding a fair and President McCrackin referred t)ie matter tu the executive committee, of which W. 1C McMurry is chairman. Upon motion of J. M. Higgins the committee was such fine and imprisonment for vio lations of same. Sec. 11.—Providing that bonds be provided as surety for payment of pen alties levied for violations of tliis or dinance. Sec. 12.—Providing for revoking of license when the bolder of same is proven to have violated town or state liquor law. The bride's mother told her to use no Hour but Ceretana; that it makes whiter, richer and better bread than instructed to draft and have circulated among the farmers and other business men of the county, petitions praying that the board of county commission ers appropriate £1,000, as provided by law, to help defray the expense of pre miums. Tile petition must be present ed to the board at the March meeting. In more than half of the counties of the state, fair associations have been formed under this law and prepara tions are being made to hold county fairs this fall. The executive committee was in structed to collect statistics showing tile amount of railway tonnage that originated in Ravalli county last year in response to a request for same made by traffic managers of the Chicago, Milwaukee and St Paul Ry. This company is also looking up data as to tlie extent of the coal fields in the southern part of the county. Samples of the coal will be forwarded this week. Announcement was made that good progress was being made in securing capital to build the sugar factory. Mr. Straus, according to a telegram received yesterday is now in New York conferring witli Mrs. Daly's representatives anent the factory. any other; that health and happiness would surely follow.
