Resolved that permission is hereby granted to Lon Groesbeck to conduct a retail liquor establishment at the Northern Hotel on Fremont Street in the City of Las Vegas for the year beginning January 1, 1914, and ending December 31st, 1914, and that the City Clerk is hereby ordered to issue a license to said Lon Groesbeck upon the payment to him of the sum required for said retail liquor establishment license.
The vote upon said resolution was as follows:
Commissioners Griffith, aye, Curtiss, aye, Smith, aye, Sullivan, aye, and his honor the Mayor W. E. Hawkins, aye.
(Note: Gambling was outlawed in Nevada in 1910 and would not be legalized in Nevada until March 19, 1931.
However, poker could be played if the house did not take a percentage. It's a little unclear to me what exactly the "gaming" license entailed besides renting tables for cardplay.)
