Jan. 18, 1919 - Prohibition to affect values in Green Bay: Not less than $2,500,000 worth of real estate and personal property in the city of Green Bay will be affected by the National Prohibition amendment which became a part of the United States Constitution Thursday, when the state of Nebraska ratified the act and with the thirty-five states which had previously voted in favor of the cause, doomed the saloon and liquor business of the country.

The city has 109 saloons paying a total of $21,800 in license fees with an investment in buildings, fixtures and stocks of not less than one million dollars but with the amount probably running greatly over that total.

While Green Bay's license fee of $200 has been lower than the average maintained in practically every city of the state, it has nevertheless brought $21,800 in revenue for the expenses of the city.
