Cut Off Their Beer
Newark, N. J., is the scene of an interesting experiment in the restraint of anarchy. The authorities of that city propose to cut off the beer supply of the anarchists who congregate there. Following the charge of Chief Justice Depue and the action of the police in arresting several anarchists and suspicious persons, the Excise Board has adopted this resolution:
Whereas, It has come to the notice of the Board of Excise that certain saloonkeepers of this city have been guilty of permitting anarchists to assemble in their places of business and make speeches against the head of our Nation; therefore be it
Resolved, That any saloonkeepers in this city who shall be charged by the police with harboring anarchists or permitting them to hold meetings in their places of business and make speeches against the Government and the good order of the community, shall be deemed to be not the proper kind of persons to conduct a business of this character, and any person guilty of such offense shall suffer the revocation of his license and be debarred from again receiving a license to do business in this city.
