Tem­per­ance work in Salem.

The Hindu - - OPED -

A HUN­DRED YEARS AGO NOVEM­BER 15, 1917 Some months ago two re­mark­able meet­ings of the weavers of Salem met in Pon­namapet and dis­cussed the ques­tion of in­creas­ing liquor con­sump­tion in their com­mu­nity. They unan­i­mously re­solved to ap­peal to the Col­lec­tor to re­duce the num­ber of toddy shops and re­move them well out­side the Mu­nic­i­pal lim­its and that the com­mu­nity would co-op­er­ate with the au­thor­i­ties promptly to bring any il­licit traf­fic that may arise to pun­ish­ment. This was fol­lowed by a unan­i­mous res­o­lu­tion of the Mu­nic­i­pal Coun­cil to the same ef­fect.
