Crowd That Fought for Royal Arch Would Muddle
Up Law Passed by the People.
Driven to final report, a crowd which supported the Royal
Arch straight through the recent campaign la now trying to muddle
the anti-treat ordinance which the people thought well enough of to
pass. '
It may be that a decision from the city attorney will prove the
exact scope of the law and may or may not affect cafes where
liquor la served with meals.
BUT —Every man and woman—at least ninety-nine out of
every hundred —realized that the anti-treat law in spirit was aimed
at the bar rooms, commonly called saloons. If that evil—evil be
cause the people have called It so—is eradicated by observance of
the anti-treat law, the big mass of people who use common sense
thinking will agree that the object which they had In their hearts
»t the ballot box has been achieved.
The city officials may or may
not decide that the cafes come
under the anti-treat law. There
have been cafes in Tacoma where
liquor should never have been
served. There are other cafes
and restaurants which have never
been complained of.
It is & laughable thing to h«ar
consternation expressed from
quarters which swung with the
Royal Arch, that young girls are
to be doomed In the event "that
the anti-treat law does not pro
vide against drinking of a glass
of beer at a meal by those who do
not believe in prohibition.
Why this sudden talk about
young girls? Why is It not point
ed out that a city statute makes
provision as to minors assembling
in places where liquor is Bold?
The Times has no desire to
question any official verdict as re
gards selling liquor in cafes.
The people voted -in spirit
against the anti-treating evil as
it commonly existed. If this ordi
nance provides against drinking
in cafes or restaurant it is up to
the city officials to carry out the
An attempt coming from dis
gruntled quarters to make light
of the law because support of the

U. S. Soldiers In Camp at Picturesque Fort Crockett
The anti-treat ing law is being
very generally observed by the sa

The big signs are on display In
all the wet goods emporiums and
the dealers are apparently trying
: to live up to the law as they do
not care to run up against Mayor

licenses of those that have been
breaking the law is pitting a
wholesome fear* Into' the dealers.
' . Dispute has arisen j over the
question as to whether the antl
treating law applies to (restau

--• Assistant City Attorney" Carna
ban said today:
- "The anti-treatlng law will ap
ply to restaurants and cafes. "" It
declares treating must not be al

Mr. Seymour said he had been
called a "silk stooklng" and a so
cialist. He admitted he was an
Idealist and said lie was a member
of the Country club. He said he
had also been called a "corpora

"I am connected with corpora

corporations^ but I am not tfut up
by any corporation, and perhaps I
can serve the city because of what

ed of it and tried to buy the gas
plant, but would not pay what he
wanted. They threatened to start
a competing company. Seymour
said he went to Mayor Wright and
asked him if he would protect him
by refusing to grant a franchise to
the opposition. Wright agreed to
do It, and did keep the other men
out of the field, and later Seymour
sold his plant at a big price and
in gratitude sent $10,000 to
Wright for the city, and it was
used for the Seymour eonserva-

Thanks, For Approval
Once again, the Times thanks the people of Tacoma for ex

Luis Barron. who reported that he

the people as a matter of (prin
ciple first, last and all the time.
