MAYOR'S COURT, Ravenna Village.
State of Ohio, Portage County ss.} D. LYMAN, Mayor , presiding, June 24, '54.
State of Ohio, on complaint of MARY McGILLIN, vs. JOHN B. ROBINSON.
    
Complaint for keeping a room where intoxicating liquors are sold.  Plea - Not Guilty.
     Defendant recognized in the sum of $75, to answer to said complaint before the Probate Court on the first Monday of July next.
     S. STRAWDER, Attorney for State; RANNEY and JEFFRIES for defendant.
     This is the first case that has arisen under the new liquor law in Ravenna.  ROBINSON was arrested on Saturday, and will have a hearing at the Probate Court on Monday next.
     Now that the ice is broken, we hope that our citizens will go on until every place where arden spirits are sold as a beverage in any form, is entirely driven to the wall, and obliged to shut up.
     These orphan-makers and poor-house fillers are a blighting curse to our beautiful village, and have produced more misery, crime and degradation, than all the other causes combined.  It is high time that a stop should be put to the vile practices of these heaven-daring soulless wretches, who for vie cents will place a man below the level of a brute.  We believe that the power is in the hands of the authorities to root out these nuisances, and we hope they will be used.  So rum-venders may look out.
