Anti Treating Bill Takes License
if Saloon Man "Buys."
fBv Tr-legrapn to Th* Tribun?? I
Albany. Feh 14.?No more treating, if
a bill that Assemblyman Fonstantine. of
Niagara County, introduced to-day ever
gets on the statute books. Th* measure
would carry out. ideas that have been
advo.ated by the Herman-American Al?
liance for years.
It would prohib?? the sale or gh'ins
! away of liquor in a saloon to any person
! except the one dire-otly ordering it and
I paying for it and by whom it is to be
' drunk. It also prohibits any person
! from buying or paving for liquor to be
I drunk by any other person on the prem?
ises. But If one Is buying wine with a
meal he <*an legally split the bottle with
a friend, ??ven if the bill Is passed.
To make the state's mandate supreme
the bill provides a $500 rtne or a year's
imprisonment, or both, as the penalty for
violation. If the saloonkeeper Is guilty
of treating the proposed law also calls
I for the forfeiture of his liquor tax
I liconse, as well as the other punishment.

At his home. KO. '-?? Fifth avenue, Mr.
Hati'l said last night that ?as soon as ho
received the official papers contirming
his appointment his first step would b?
to call a conference .,f th ? lawyers in?
terested in the case to determine all
questions of proc?dure and detail.
My own idea is that all those who are.
interested and whose interest Is Justi?
fied.'' said Mr. Hand, should appear at
this conferen? *. Of course, the Attorney
General or a representative from his of?
fice should represent the state, In whos?*.
custody Brandt now is, and I would ex?
pect the. District Attorney and those law?
yers whose interest in the case is Justi?
fied. This would include tho lawyers
who have *p. <-ar*d for th*? c<.mplalnatu
as well as for the defendant."
Mr. Hand was the special commissioner
appointed by Governor Hughes In Air'.

stockholders of the Metropolitan Street
Railway Company. He is a Democra".
a graduate of Union <*ollege, class of
58. and was president of the New York
State Bar Association in 19?)4 and 190?>.
He is seventy-three years old.
As to his plan of procedure Mr. Hand
said last night that he would leave all
such details until after the conference
of lawyers interested, his chief idea be?
ing that the matter should be taken up
immediately, and that Its consideration
should be in publi?* hearings.
"Needs Immediate Public He-nnq.'*'
It seems to me that in this ?vise -n
immediate and publi,- hearing is what ls
needed, but as to the entire qu?iStion of
when and how it shall be taken up I will
wait until we have had a conference,'"

It was learned that late |q th_ after?
