ry out his plan of pruning out un-
desirable saloon keepers or those
I who have violated portions of. tho. li

ment here today.
" The comptroller has said he ' did
not propose to renew the permit of
any retail liquor dealer who has in
any way failed 'to' unserve every pro-
vision of this law: in this connec
tion he has been conducting an ex
tensive campaign especially in the
larger cities of tho state. Instead
of instituting proceedings for the
cancellation of licenses it was said
he will refuse to renew their permits
and thus automatically close their
business. Of 3500 saloon licenses in
the state 2100 will expire July 10
and of this number it is declared per-
haps. 3.00 would not. get renewals.
