Hundreds of saloons have been closed in Illinois as the result of the local option voted at the last election in fourteen counties. Eight counties are now totally "dry," while six allowed saloons in only a few precincts. The counties principally affected are in the southern tiers and reflect the wave of prohibition that has been sweeping up from the South. Sentiment in favor of strictures upon the liquor traffic is rapidly gaining ground.

As the result of the fall elections in Massachusetts, all but one of the three hundred and fifty-four cities and towns of the State have gone on record on the question of permitting the sale of intoxicating liquors. Tabulation shows that the no-license majority in Massachusetts is now over thirteen thousand. The entire State went no-license last year by about eighteen hundred majority.
