Vol. XX. BAKERSFIEI.D, CALIFORNIA, WKDNESDAY, DECEMBER 10,1908. No. 117 WORLD MAKES HOT REPLY TO ROOSEVELT NEW YORK, Dec. 16.-—The World In replying to Roosevelt's message to Congress says: "No other living man ever so grossly libeled the United States as does this President, who besmirches Congress, bulldozes judges, assails the integrity of courts, slanders private citizens, and who has shown himself the most reckless.unscrupulous demagogue whom the American people ever trusted with great power and authority. "We say this not In anger, but In sincere sorrow. The World has Immeasurably more respect for the office of President of (be United States than Theodore Roosevelt has ever shown during the years In which he has maintained a reign of terror and vilified the honor and honesty of both public officials and private citizens who opposed his policies or thwarted him In hla purposes. "Mr. Roosvelt Is mistaken. He cannot muzzle the World. While no amount of 'billingsgate' on his part can alter our determination to treat scrupulous fairness, wo repeat ORDINANCE GOVERNS LIQUOR THAU; we have already said, that the Congress of the United States should make a thorough investigation of the whole Panama transaction, that the full truth may be known to the Amer- can people. "The World appreciates the import, ancc and significance of Mr. Roosevelt's statement when he declared to Congress that the proprietor of the DEAD mm The Board of Supervisors today passed the new ordinance, number 93, to regulate and restrict the Issuance of liquor licenses In all territory outside of Incorporated towns. The ordinance is in line with that suggested some weeks since, but It Is more stringent with reference to saloons outside of towns. The ordinance provides that before o license for a road house can be Issued, the petitioner must secure the consent of two-thirds of the propel y holders within a radius of three ml IB of tho location of the saloon. The" 1< t formerly placed the limit at five ml, but experience showed It was efi to secure the consent of prope holders at a distanec, and£oftentln the residents in. a three mile rad found themselvesfin. a minority . compared with the whole number . property holders In the district. It^ls argued that the t&i4e mile limit wlUiter January 5th. l>lace the responsibility directly upon thosi? who reside close by the proposed saloon. In towns, the provisions of the old ordinance were entirely abrogated and now the petition for a license must contain the signatures of two thirds of the actual residents, wheth er property holders or renters, within a radius of 600 feet. This means that two-thirds of the residents on an area of about four blocks must sign a petition before a license will be granted, and it places the veto power in such places as Tehachapl, Mojave, Randsburg, Delano and other towns directly with the people if they see fit to exercise It. They must sanction the Issuance of the license, or no license will be Issued. The question of raising the license j from $3110 to $600 per year was dis- , cussed, tnit no action was taken, Ttv; ordinance will be In effect at- RULES TO AN CARACAS, Venezuela, Dec. 15.—An gored by the warlike demonstrations of the Dutch ships, the people of Caracas rose today against the rule of President Castro, now In Europe, nnd It Is believed his authority is at an end.
