The Abolition of Wine Rooms.
The Mayor has done a com mendable thing in ordering thal wine rooms for women shall be abolished, and no women shall be permitted to enter any part of a buildings or house used. for*a sa loon. It further prohibits women from appearing on yhie streets-in decently. This is a good law and we hope it will be qnfo-tjcqd ta the letter. We also denounce this thing of allowing noisy abs troperous men to use-profane language on the streets and in saioons so as to be heard on tffe out rJe. It is getting too intol erable. j,W& believe many of the disordmily -^saloons should bd closed altogether on Sunday un less they comply with the law. We have no right io have mercy on'law breakers and meuacers^of the people’s tranquility. . ' ' " ‘ ' »Jc ^ Odd Fellows Sermon To-morrow at Zion Church.
