    Der Wirtstag (The Tavernkeepers' Day)

    The delegates of all German saloon and tavernkeeper's Organizations of Chicago had an important meeting last night at the Northside-Turnerhall. Mr. Rudolp Ambach, who presided over the meeting, pointed in his opening speech to the necessity of a close and dependable cooperation among German saloons and taverhkeepers, in order to fight successfully the steadily growing opposition against the saloon-business.

    During the following deliberations, a resolution was adopted, to start an agitation among all members towards the foundation of a Life-Insurance Institute as a branch of the Organization. The price for the charter would be $5000.00, which could be brought together in shares of $10.00 from interested members of the Organization.

    The following new officers were elected: Philip Castler, President; R. Ebert, Vice-President; R. Ambach, Secretary; H. Rock, Treasurer. The meeting then adjourned.
