8AL00NS DEPRECIATE REAL ESTATE
The New York World recently
said that one cause will greatly
limit the saloon area and influence
is the number of surburban
“parks” and cottage groups being
developed by private capital,where
in the deeds of all property sold
carry convenants against “nui
sances” for from ten to fifty years.
It added: In the eyes of the real
estate man the saloon is the great
est of nuisances. He may himself
like an occasional drink, but he
will not let it be sold on his own
land. A million New Yorkers
will soon be living on land where
no saloon can be maintained. And
propinquity powerfully affects
habits. The swinging sign of the
saloon suggests thirst; its absence
means sobriety. The average man
won’t travel far for a drink. In
time the influence of “restricted”
areas must be reflected in the
choicer residence sections, which
are not restricted. Hu rely as a
business matter, future municipal
managers will inquire why any
saloon should be permitted in a
residence section, where its inevi
table effect is to depreciate prop
erty all about it. The money de
rived from the license, were it
twice as much cannot compensate
for the loss in taxable values. Is
it good policy for a city thus to

FROM THE SENOIA ENTERPRISE
Misses McLeroy and Scott, the
elocution and music teachers of
Brantley Institute, are arranging a
most interesting entertainment to
be given on Friday evening, April
Rev. W. A. Davis will resign
one of his former churches, having
accepted charge of the Bethel
church at Rocky Mount. This is
a good church with a large mem
bership and has a large field for a
good pastor and we congratulate
that church on their selection of a
Justice court is getting to be too
big a thing in Senoia ior a little
old 12x24 court room and there is
strong talk that in the near f uture
we will have a court house. ()f
course this court house will not be
as nice as the one we have in New-
nan, but it will be a court house
all the same. Suppose the city
council join in and make a nice lit
tle appropriation for this purpose
and stop the rent expense every
year. Build a house the town will
not be ashamed of.
