George Millar Charged With
Selling Liquor to Minors.
Councilman George Millar, proprie­
tor of the Manhatten cafe, and social­
ist member from the Third w.«rd, was
arrested Thursday afternoon on a war­
rant charging selling liquor to minors.
Millar was released upoh his own rec­
ognizance to appear for trial Friday
morning at 10:30 o’clock.
The principal witness is Menlo F.
Davis formerly employed in the Man­
hatten cafe as a dishwasher. Davis is
a minor, and it is alleged that while
employed by a councilman in his kitch­
en he secured liqur, and that he be-
bame intoxicated. A jury trial will
likely be demanded by the councilman.
Councilman Millar after his arrest
reiterated his previous declaration that
the present agitation and his arrest
for alleged violation of the city ordin­
ance covering the sale of liquor is
“persecution” and “a political plot”
No specific violation of the ordinance
is named in the warrant, the allega­
tion embracing the period between
1911 and the present time, giving the
testimony in case a wide leeway and
keeping the matter before the present
grand jury, which is said to have still
under consideration the charges against
Millar, which have been in the process
of investigation this week.—Sun.
