o torn to outsiders." HIGHWOOD SALOONS CLOSED AS RESULT OF CRUSADE Fort Mierldss Official Aiaia 1-ak.r- (' ly Mllarsa' I.e-a aar In StoaptnaT Sale of I.lqaor to Soldiers. Members of the Lake' County Citizens league, aided by Captain Seville of Fort Sheridan, claim the credit of having compelled three High wood saloons to go out of business, and they assert that, as a result of the crusade they are conducting, a fourth is preparing to suspend. The falling off In the saloon trade In High-wood Is ascribed to a recent order of Captain Seville, issued at the request of the league, that soldiers at the post should not go to that village without a permit. These privileges were granted sparingly, and, as a result, there has been a decided slump In the trade. William Welch. J. V. Oariighty. and Joha Llskey have closed their places, and J. Gar-ringer is said to be preparing to go out of business. In addition, charges of keeping open on Sunday and permitting gambling have been preferred against John Devine. John Hart, William Welch. Edward Mai-thews. John Leskle. William Felvie. and Major Alsip. and Levi Goldstein Is accused of running a disorderly house. Their cases are now pending In the Lake county court. The league Is said to be sreparing to extend Its crusade to Waukegan.
