Designed Mainly in Check the ??? of Providing Free Drinks to the Soldiers From the Front - Nev.. k[illegible] the Order to Applicalbe to Everybody - Police May Close All Night Clubs in the City of London.

London, Sept, 24. "At a meeting of the privy council at Buckingham Palace today the king signed an order applying the regulations respecting the sale of liquor in the districts of the Metropolitan area."

This rather cryptic announcement appearing in black-faced type in to [illegible] papers, meant [illegible] the long or [illegible] "non-treating" order is now in [illegible] action throughout the greater city and that a great change must be made in the social habits of the people.

Though designed mainly to [illegible] he [illegible] of providing free liquor ?o soldiers from the front - especially those who are about to depart again, or the [illegible] - the order [illegible] [illegible] in applicable to everybody, and a villation will bring upon the offender heavy fine or imprisonmnet, or [illegible]. Hereafter, except in the privacy of the home, the Londer may not [illegible] a bottle or her bottle with a [illegible] There is but one exception and that is at meal times. I [illegible] host may provide liquor. But in al [illegible] hotels and clubs the words, "What will you have?" are taboo."

Even the exclusive army clubs are [illegible], and members are asking many questions. For example:

Can members water whiskey and [illegible] on a card game?

Can drinks be ordered to seal a [illegible], or for a toast?

Is an officer leaving for the front [illegible] denied a parting drink with his [illegible]?

Can a [illegible] accidently upset [illegible] called?

Salonkepeers are very [illegible] every [illegible]situation. They say that, with treating barred, the whole atmosphere of the saloon will be [illegible]. Few men. It is argued, [illegible] to drink alone and a tremendous slump in trade is predicted.

What constitutes a meal with which one man may buy a drink for his friend will doubtless have to be defined by the courts. Whether a meal will consist of the antiquanted sandwich so familiar in the United States remain to be seen. There is of course the extent subterfuge by which one man may give the person he wishes to treat one amount required before they enter the saloon; but this would be cumbersome, commercial and hardly popular.

Police regulations, it is said on good authority, are about to be issued cloning all night clubs in London, during the entire period of the war. If this reform takes place, it will come as a [illegible] of a protest by military authorities that the "night club evil" has turned what ought to be a period of rest and recuperation for officers on [illegible] from the front, into a prolonged [illegible] which leaves the men in a worse condition than when they came [illegible] from the trenches. It is commonly known that in most of the night clubs evasion of the 10 o'clock law has been developed to a fine art and that drinks can be easily obtained. [illegible] day and night.

I am in favor of closing down all [illegible] clubs [much of the next few lines are illegible]
