Kip, Jr., to Issue an order closing all bars during the hours of the special election on TueBday, i from 1 to 9 p. m. The league will endeavor 10 get evidence of any such violations before | or after the hours of election and prose- 1 cute the offenders, according to the ' Rev. David De Forest Burrell, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church, who was one of the men Interested in the formation of the organization. The clergyman will also use his influence to prevent "ticket peddlers" from being paid at all elections In the village here after. Interest In the village at present cen i res on the special excise fight to be decided at the polls on Tuesday. The Interchurch League men are at work every evening preparing for the day to come.

Badger, of the league, is challenged In the document to publicly suggest that any improper motive animated the trustees who voted in favor of the ordinance.
