DRUGGIST IS GIVEN WARNING.
No Evidence of Sales Against Place on Independence Avenue.
C. C. Slaughter, owner of a drug store at 5100 Independence avenue, was discharged yesterday by Judge Fred W. Coon in the North Side municipal court on a charge of selling liquor. A raiding squad found a quantity of beer and many empty bottles at the drug store, but did not find any direct evidence of sales.
"I am giving everyone a fair chance," Judge Coon said, "but the drug store saloons must clean out of their places. In the future druggists must understand that the presence of beer in any quantity larger than what might be for private consumption, will be considered as evidence against them."
