Alderman Henry W Heeds, who has led Ihe fight for higher license. 1 a. m. closing and belter police reg ulations, declared in a statement yes terday that liquor dealers represent ing 93 per cent, of Invested value and 03 per cent, per caplin interested, are in favor of higher license. Based on figures submilled by dealers them selves, Mr. Heeds’ slateinent puts the situation in its firs! true light before ihe public. Only intimidation of councilman by a minority of saloon keepers can defeat ill*! Hill for a $.>00 fee, but interests favoring a continua tion of the present $350 fee are nl ready celebrating their anticipated victory. Alderman Heeds, in liis interview, points out Hint liquor intercsls con tribute luxes on but $5,000,000 out of the $50,000,000 tuxnbles of the city, and that In the hearing before council the representatives of Hie re maining $15,000,000 have declared emphatically for a $500 fee. Hiquor dealers. Mr. Heeds declares, have reaped heavily from Hie prosperity of tlm resort, but have failed to shoulder their share of the increasing cost of municipal adminlslration. Prospects of a sharp clash when the itigit license ordinance reaches linn I reading next week hits centered the interest of every politician in the resort upon i.aiy mum on mm ouie.
