Of ail trouble in the matter and have Send their agouti to the City Hall and bad them procure the License tor the customer Aud take it around to him. One or two breweries have gone farther. They have paid the free lunch counter expenses of some of their customers. This was All done to keep the Brewers Sigus out and the Burden has been heavy each License costing $500 per year. Most. Of the saloons which will be closed Are on the outskirts of Tho City and in localities which Are not particularly Beer drink aug neighbourhoods. But there Are a number of Down town resorts that will also pass out of existence somewhat to the Surprise of the Public. Not Only have the Brewers grown weary of advancing Money for the purpose named it the largest measure of complaint has come Nom those Saloon keepers who have been Able to make both ends meet these claim that it is not fair for the Brewers to give the Man w to asks the Advance a better Chance than the Man who pays Casu.

The people appreciate the fact that an Able reliable conservative City government is the first step to be taken to place ban Antonio to the front As a live progressive City. The people will stand any reasonable amount of taxation and bonded debt if they Are satisfied the Money is Well invested. San Antonio if not set Back by a political mistake is certain to Lead All the cities of the South in a few years. Mexican politics Are not suitable for a live american City. The mexican is naturally stationary in his ideas As tie finds things heis certain to let them remain. Increasing population must change the political complexion of our City it cannot remain a City whose politics Are controlled or dominated by political Bosses who command the mexican vote much longer.
