PLAN TO RAID ALL v SALOONS Crusaders Get Warrants for Arrest of Violators of S tato Law Against Keeping Places Open on Sunday; LIQUOR MEN ARE THROWN IN PANIC Preachers Are Believed to Be Behind Movement, but Dr. W.A'.' Bartlett Refuses Either to Confirm or to D eny Responsibility Appeals to Administration Are Futile, Arrangements have been made with Justices and detectives to issue and serve 5,000 warrants on saloon-keepers who keep their places open next Sunday. While no one could be found last night who would stand sponsor for this new and practical movement . In support of the current crusade against the Sunday saloon It was reported last night that the clergymen who have been leader In the reform movement were to take the initiative In the new fight.. The ministers who, under the leadership of the Rev. Dr. W. A. Bartlett of the First Congregational church, have repeatedly urged Mayor Dunn? to enforce the Sunday closing law, and who have been repeatedly "turned dawn" by the city's chief executiveare said to have formed an alliance that wilt go over the head of the mayor in future and seek to bring about their desired reforms without his aid. - - : Saloon-keepers who had heard of the prospective fight oa themjn the law courts tUi last night that they had heard uoti-li g aa to details of the plan. The rumor had racued them that they were to be made the objects of a general attack, and they lock keen inter-est in the stories thatieatetl from one place to another, Or. Bartlett Noncommittal. . . When asked last night If be were the man, who had arranged for the issuance of the warrants Dr. Bartlett refused to affirm or deny. Evidently he did not want the subject discussed publicly. . .. Other ministers who have been working with Dr. Bartlett in his anti-saloon crusaJa either could not be 'found or would not discuss the situation. The names of the preachers who have been active in the fight thus far are: - - - The Rev. John Norris Hall, pastor" of Wesley M. E. ehurch; the Rev. O. D. Cleworth, pastor of the Diversey Boulevard M. H. church; the Rev. David Creighton. Christ church; the Rev. Frank Dyer, Lake View Congregational church, and the Rev. W. S. P. Bryan of the Church- of the Covenant, Presbyterian. For several weeks Dr. Bartlett has been making vigorous attacks on the city administration because of its refusal to close the Sunday saloons. Mayor Dunne's attitude has been that he told the people before election that he would not close Sunday saloons.- Corporation Counsel Lewis also has opposed the enforcement of what he termed the "blue laws." In opposition, to this attitude clergymen of various denominations have held weekly meetings in which resolutions have been passed calling upon the mayor to enforce tho laws. From the pulpits these demands, have been voiced with even greater vigor.' - Every saloonkeeper who heard the rumor that wholesale warrants were to be served expressed perturbation. - t'lf they start that sort of thing It may be like the handbook crusade," said one knight of the white aprom- ''We are apt to be raided every Sunday. That will be as bad for thai saloons as le was for tbe cigar stores, with detectives running through them every day -to look for gambling." - Coincident with the rumor that an active -crusade against the Sunday saloon in Chi- ' cago Is imminent, the Rev. George E. Pari-soe declared thafbe would continue his . crusade against saloons and vice in High-wood until the nnlawful conduct of saloons should end. , The Rev. Parlsoe Is the man who led a company of studeuts against the saloon-keepers and served wtrrtnts by force. A big? fund hes been raised by the liquor element to fight his crnsade. . - -- Mayor Glbbbs Makes Char ares. ' Charges that Mr. Parisoe's raids on High-wood raloons are backed by officers of Fort . Sheridan and are due to attempts by the city's authorities to mske soldiers keep order were made today by Mayor Gibbs of Highwood. "Captain Sadllle and Captain Darrow are at the bottom of this." said the mayor. "They are angry because First Sergeant Williams was arrested twice for breaking up fixtures In saloons. "Mr. Pariaoe preaches at Highland PariC as well as atHlghwood. There are blind pigs there. Why doa'l they close up those places?" - Start Crnsade on Dance Halls. The recent agitation against summer gar- ' decs and public dance halls in the village of Lyons, begun by a petition signed by a ma jority of the property owners of the suburb two weeks ago, received a setback when -John J. Coburn, attorney for Lyor.s, to whom : tbe matter was referred, adrlsed the board that an ordinance in compliance with tbe demand of the petition would be Illegal. A petition demanding the abolition of sum mer gardens and public dance halls and the prohibiting of music in saloons on Sumlay was .presented to the board at Its regular meeting Nov. 7.
