Concord Items

For the first time since the Hon. Nathaniel E. Martin vacated the office of solicitor of Merrimack County, ten years ago, Concord is yielding obedience to the prohibitory laws, and is essentially a dry town. When Mr. Martin assumed the office of mayor on Tuesday, he stated in his inaugural address that he should see that the temperance laws were enforced during his term of office, and almost the first official act to signalize his administration was to make good that promise. And so well has he fulfilled his pledge that not one of the many saloons that were running with wide open doors yesterday now ventures to continue in the interdicted business.
