No "Real Drink" in the Quarter
and Denizens Are Sad.
EXCISE LICENSES REFUSED
No One Seems to Know Why,
and Oommen^ on the Subject
Isn't Fit to Print.
Quite the happieat sight ln Chlnatown
these nlghta ls the Btartllng comblnatlon
of colore? red. yellow, blue, white and
black?in the flags of the subjects of the
Bon of Heaven that partly hlde the dtrty
facea of the tumble-down bulldlngs, and
the ?sadde'-'t slghts by far are the wrir.kled
and Bcarred faces of "Chuok"' Connora,
"Smillng Smithers of I.lverpool" and
"Chummy." Tbaaa ploneeis lounged
about the crooked and dark llttle streets
ac forlornly and wlth as llttle activity as
hung the. flags above.
And it was all berauFe the only drink
sold ln the quarter wjy*** of the "halr tonlf"
ilk?Barsaparilla, ginger ale, etc. Other
wi-e Ufe with them. as in the glorlous
past, would be weil worth living.
What was the use in anythlng. < ven Ufe.
lf one quite gayly took "Chuck" bjf the
arm and trotted hlm over to Georgie
Stlver's Chatham Clab, across lha way
from the "bloody nngle." where one met
hlm, only to flnd that -George wacn't per?
mltted to pass any "rt-al drink" nv,r the
bar? With face heavy with conunisera
tlon, one nodded a solemn parting to the
former serene and prosperous George and
turned one's steps toward Pell street. Out?
slde "Jlmmle" Kelley's old place. at N'o
14, atood '?Smillng Smithers of Liverpool,"
who, aa of yore and hablt, winked hls
one eye twice and darted lnto the slde en?
trance. In half a mlnute a eelectton of
Ltverpoolian epitheta rose up among the
flagB and paper lanterns swlnging idly
overhead. "Jlmmle's" place, one learned,
,*nad aleo failed to keep its ltquor llcense.
Of courae. he had glnger ale and all that
-aort of etuff, but?
Burely good and glorloue old "Paddy"
Mullln. down ln Mott atreet. would not be
disappointtng. There never was an hour
since Chlnatown was that "Paddy" went
back on an old *'pal." Never! So "Chuck."
"?Chummy." "BugB" and a sailor wlth
wiggly, rubber legs hied themselves there.
The llttle old "shaok" was changed not
a whit. The llttle three-headed dog.
atuffed untll more grotesque than lt
could have been in life, still sat in the
front wlndow. guardlng the hundred prints
of prlzeflghters and other sportlng men.
"Wlth a deftness born of long acqualn
tance "Chuck's-* atubhy flngera found a
crack in the door and a button that
responded to pressure. "Dan's" pegro,
"Bud." stood before them.
"You all don't allow as how you achln'
for thls here red llquor. do you?" He
enorted and then added. "Dogonne. theae
>hear exclae persons done took away our
^ licenee. or sumptin'." It was nearly
KV true?the atate exclse department had
1/ also refused to renew "Paddy's" llcense.
* Thlnklng that surely "Big Jack ' .Sirocco,
.around the corner, ln Doyers street. and
behlnd the llttle mllk shop, would be
well able to slake three ambJtlous thirsts,
they went there. But "Jack" had lost
lntereet ln retelling the sad Btory and had
gone home to bed.
To make a long and sad 8tory short,
the three locked arms and wandered
further down 'the line." No one ln the
"Uttle old vlllage' could aell them a
drink. No one seemed to know why 11
cenaea had been refused. It was aaid that
Police Inspector John Daly, who has
twice cleaned out Chlnatown, recom?
mended to the excise authorltles that
they refuse to renew tbe Ucensee, but the
mapector couldn't be found last night.

$30,000 IN GOLD LEAF GONE

00 60 to $7 60 each, and Caffrey aold them
for $6 aplece.
The publishlng house discovered aome
tlme ago that lt was belng robbed, but
could not ascertaln ln Just what depart?

wm atked to tnveatlgate tha matter, and
soon lt waa learned that the ieakage could
be traced to the bookbinding -opartment
There were nlnety-flve men ln the depart?

waa tbe one to be watched, and his move
menta were followed each day.

At last we are golng to learn what so
clajly correct danclng Ib. The Commlttee
on Amusement Reaourcea of Working Glrla
haa set out by means of claasea to "de*
flne soclally correct danclng," und when lf.
has been deflned the commlttee wlU aee
that we do lt -or none at all.
You cunnot escape the commlttee by
golng even to the Bwellest of awell ball
rooms, for though Its name says dlstlnet
ly that It ls concerned wlth working girls
the commlttee's chairman, Mr?. OhaMes
H. Israels sald yeaterday that the gllt
edged plaees whlch fhe wealthy frequent
were to be speclally watched thls wlnter.
Prlvate ballroome, of course, the com?
mlttee can't peep Into, much as lt would
llke to, but woe to any one who "turkey
trots" or "bunny lnigs" In any fashlonable
bailroom! The eye of the Investlgator
wlU be upon hlm.
In order that there may be enough In
vestlgators, whlch there never haa been.
the commlttee ls backlng the Bureau of
T.icenses ln Its demand for an Increaae of
$70,000 in its budget. Thls, along wlth *
lot of other things, wns decided upon at
a meeting yesterday at the commlttee's
new home. N'o. 311 Mmllson avenue.
Ita Work Undereatimated.
"Why doea the Bureau of Dleenses want
auch a big InereaBe In lfa budget?" tha
reporter asked Mrs. Israels.
'Thnt bureau has been negleoted," she
sald, "because no one has reallxed how

"Our commlttee has some investigators.
We-^apent about 18,000 last year. But
when the aeason ls ln full swtng and
countless dance halls golng, It requlree
somethlng of a force to watch them?or
would if lt were thoroughly done.
"We want to change the law so that
the Inveatlgators needrt't he on the clvll
Bervlco Hat, because It Is not well to

they get to be recognlzed. Our Inveatl?
gators are some of them young men who
are working their way through college,
nnd glad to earn 12 60 h nlght hy working
for ua for a llttle whlle."
Among ita other wlnter stunts, Mrs. Ia
rael'B commlttee will try to Becure cer?
taln amendmentfl to the dance hall law.
For ono thing, It wanta the relnB drawn
closer on dance halla wlth bedroorne-^those
havlng less than twenty-flve bedrooms.
These are, of course, small hotela, and
Mrs. laraele thlnka aome of them need a
lot of watchlng. Placea llBted as dance
halla wlth more than twenty-flve bed
rooma are, of courae, the large hoteis,
the reputatlons of whlch are pretty good.
Wanta a Blaokllat.
Another thing the commlttee wants Ib
a unlverBal contract form between dance
halla nnd the peraona rentlng them, bo
that anyhody bad enough to be refused
at one dance hall can't go and get ln at
another. And they want lt obligatory
for cluba and aocietlea that glve occa
alonal dances to have a llcenee. ao that
('ommlBsloner Wallace of the bureau
can have hls eye on them as well aa the
proprletora of dance halla.
"Commlssloner Wallace la very nlce to
the commlttee," Mra Iaraels sald. "He
lnveattgates our complalnta of dance

Mayor Upholds Order Keeping

"To allow the police to say who mt}*

prevent people from voting, would render
our electlona no longer free. and frea

Dr. Ratnoff BUggeatud thut there would
be a lot of fraudulcnt voting unless the
police were ln the polllng placea. "Sub
