1914 Fayetteville Bulletin, 1914 local news... Ira Everingham has purchased the Davis Brothers saloon and will take possession of it next week. The consideration is said to be $7,000. Mr. Everingham, who recently returned from Littleton N.H. where he has been employed the past few years by the Pike Manfucturing Company, has been lately residing at the Suderbah hotel. He was formerly engaged in the clothing business and is undoubtedly one of the best known young men in town, as was shown by the fact that he was elected town collector on a straight Democratic ticket. This is unfortunate timing for Ira since the Senate proposed the 18th amendment December 18, 1917 which was approved in 1919 and prohibition went into effect January 1920.

Evidence that caused the action was secured when O###seer of the ### Charles ## Dickerson caused Judson Clemons' arrest for non support of his two children who are in the Onondaga Home. Although Clemons had been posted in all saloons in town Chief of Police Norton found Clemons in Everingham's saloon when he arrested him.
