MAYOR COMES IN
OUT OF THE RAIN
Public Opinion Forces Mayor Little
field. Much Against His Own Wishes,
to Issue a Tardy Order for Closing
Saloons on Sunday.
City Marshal Peter Wheeler yester
day notified the saloon keepers of We
natchee to keep their places closes on
Sunday, under '"penalty of arrest and
prosecution. Wheeler was intei viewed
today by a World representative but re
fused to state whether he was actiug
upou his own initiative or under orders
from the mayor. Mayor Littleneld
refused to be interviewed on the sub
ject, but it is generally helived that
he issued the order to Wheelor. What
the pressure is that has been brought
to bear to cause the mayor to issue an
order so absolutely contrary to his per
sonal wishes, is still a mystery. His
stand against law enforcement a few
weeks ago has won l.im much unpo
pularity and caused a wave of indig
nation to sweep over the city agaiDst
such anarchis.b principals as Mr.
Littler!ild favors. It is probable that
realizing that his stand had met with
disfavor and that the saloon element
in Wenatchee is not the dominating
element, the mayor is attempting to
gee into public favor by issaiag this
tardy order. * ' - ,„
