What tho Assembly Judiciary Com
mlttec Is Uolng.
Our neighbor the. world Informed
Its readers yesterday that :
"It is not at sit unlikely Hint the
Judiciary Committee ot the Assem
bly, falling to obtain sufflclent evi
dence upon which to convict the five
Socialists of disloyalty to the Gov
ernment, will frame a report declar
ing the preeent proceeding In more
of an Investigation than a 'trial' .and
that It has at least served to placp
before the public the real alms ot the
Soclallet party In this country,"
It would be a very dlfllcult thlni
for the Judiciary Committed to frame
n report treating tho present proceed
ing as anything except nn Investlgn
tion. This fact ought to be clear to
every person who has rend the reso
lution In accordance with which the
committee Is acting. That resolution,
with the names of the Ave Socialists
omitted, fs :
' "Be It resolved that the said . . .
members of th Socialist party be and
they hereby are denied seats In this
Ataembly pending tbo determination
of their qualifications and fusibility

hereby Is referred to tho Committee
on Judiciary of the Assembly of the
State of New York to be hereafter
appointed, and that the said commit
tee be empowered to adopt such rules
of procedure a In Its judgment It
deems proper, and that said commit
tee be further empowered to sub
poena and examine witnesses and doc
umentary evidence and to report to
this body its determinations as to the
qualifications and eligibility of the
said . . . each of them respec
tively to a seat lp this Assembly."

has no power except the power con
ferred on It by the Assembly, no nu

Assembly limit nnd direct its nctlvl

Jt was natural to expect that
1010, the year which saw tho home
coming of two million soldiers from
Europe nnd the return, of almost ns
many more from military to civil life,
would bo a great year for marriages.
It was not, however. In this city
there were 58,083 about 2,200 mpre
than tho record of the preceding year,
and a few hundred lcsjs than that of
1017, when some soldiers going abroad
were married and somo slackers has
tened to take wives.
Why there should have been such n
small incrcaso llf marriages In a
prosperous country After a war Is a
puzzle. Perhaps the solution Js (hat
there aro not enough rich men to go
around. Slnco 1014 women Jiave been
accustomed to having more nnd more
money of their own earning, The sal

m-Is. It Is not, as ho nays, enclored
with a wooden picket fence. Tlio front,
on Church street, has a high and hand
some Iron fence, with a beautifully
wrought gate. The fenco and gate arc
probably seventy-five years old. The
north and south ot the lot nrc bounded
by brick walls and bulldlive. On the
west tho burylns ground of the Circular
(Congregational) Church is separated
from It by a slight wire fence, the two
lots practically merging. The western

A Complaint That Deliveries Aro Made

To tub EDiTon or Tim Sun Sir

A custom which has been nllcm-ed, I

unn-rappeu loaves oi ore an carcicssiy
while making deliveries, the bread being
treated like so much kindling wood, and
no precaution being taken to prevent
Its exposure to germs, I have also
seen unprotected loaves of bread lying
on the wet straw In the bottom ot a
giocer's delivery wagon.
May I ask, when bread Is the most
generally used article In the world and
eaten every day by young nnd old, why
It Is not the, larceat germ spreader thero

"USE YOUR LEAD."
One Way to Keep Ships From Run
ulng Askoro on Long Island.
To the Editor of Tun Sun Sir; A
fe' years ago a big transatlantic liner'
came ashore on the Great South Beach
opposite Patchogue, It was good weather
and the ship was under perfect control.
The captain of the Coast Guard went
on board and the captain of tho liner
Invited him Into the chart room and ex
plained how 'be had sailed over the
same course from Nantucket Shoal light
ship to Ambrose Channel lljlit on sev
eral previous voyages and nil went well.
Steamships well found and under full
control are continually running ashore
on the Long Island or the New Jersey
beach. This can only happen by taking
too many things for granted, by as
suming too much. Perhaps the given
Course Is not steered correctly; perhaps
an unusual current sets the ship toward
the beach. Such things can bo avoided
by the use ot the ship's sounding lead,
which always tells the truth but Is too
In the days of the old sailing ships
no ship came ashore with both anchors
on tho bow and a dry lead line In the
tub. No ship under full control can get
ashore on tho Long Island or the New
Jersey coast It the lead Is used, for the
coast line runs off shore about a fathom
to a mile, nnd there can be no mistake
about It. "Mid storm, fog and snow,
tho ono safe thing on board a ship Is
the lead. Use your lead."

character precisely from tho life but
some counterpart of that character has
Incredulously asked me; 'Now, really.
did I ever really see one like It?'" And
