NEWTON – The order of Mayor Love last Thursday, that all saloons in the city be finally closed that night, was obeyed since which the above named  luxuries  have ceased to exist.  Quite a wholesale business was done by the saloons and drug stores on Thursday, however, and not a few houses in town are fully supplied with all the necessaries in that line for some time to come.  Every thing passed off quietly on Thursday, except late at night, when we learned that some of the “boys” indulged in a final spree on a small scale.  The Newton Kansan, Newton Kansas.  Thursday, March 3, 1881.  Page 3. © Transcribed by Marty Fuller for the Harvey County Geological Society.
