Mayor's Office
Hoboken, N.J.
Martin Cooke, Mayor
November 11, 1913



There has been received by the City Clerk, and will be presented to your body to-day, an application from Edward I. Reich for a cabaret license at 72 Hudson St., also an application from Felix Di Giuli for a cabaret license at 68-70 Hudson St.

I feel that it is incumbent upon me as Mayor, and also as President of the Board of Police Commissioners to protest against the granting of either of those licenses. Whatever justification there might have been for the granting of cabaret licenses last year, the experience of the past year should lead us to refuse the petition of anyone applying for a cabaret license in the future. These places have drawn a class of undesirable characters that have brought ill repute upon the good name of our city. The citizens of Hoboken have always been proud, and justly so, of the splendid reputation the city has maintained in regard to its moral conditions, and it seems incomprehensible that we should allow strangers to take that reputation away from us. Fully assured that your body will see this question in the light that I do.

I am Respectfully yours,
Martin Cooke, Mayor
