MADE TO THE

E. L. FREEMAN & CO., PRINTERS TO THE STATE.
To the Honorable General Assembly of the State of Rhode Island, at its January Session, A. D. 1878:
The License Commissioners in and for the city of Providence, State of Rhode Island, herewith respectfully submit their third annual report.
The act for regulating and restraining the sale of intoxicating. liquors, has been thoroughly enforced in this city during the year just passed, and we have to repeat that no illegal sales of liquors are made here openly. The fees for license remains as heretofore.
The average cost of license this year is $228.00.
The entire cost of collecting fees and maintenance of the Commission is about 4 per cent. on the amount collected.
It will be noticed by comparing the following statements, substantiated by figures, that a desirable reform has been accomplished, in that the traffic in liquors has been placed in fewer hands. We believe the business now is represented by about the proper number of persons, most of whom conduct its affairs in an unobjectionable manner as far as may be, and all of whom are prompt in adopting any change we may suggest.
