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.
