To the Council.

Gentlemen:-
I am in receipt of a communication from Captain Hayes through Chief Donovan in reference to a saloon kept by a Robert Kolligs at No. 116 Washington Street. I am informed that a Boxing Match was in readiness to be fought on Sunday October 9th, 1898.

I would recommend that you take this matter under investigation with a view of revoking his license as a place of this sort is a detriment to the city.

Respectfully Yours,
Lawrence Fagan, Mayor
