and the New York Call, two Socialist
news1apers, were withdrawn today by
Postmaster General flays, who restor

that recently taken in 'the case of the
LAberator, a periodical published in
New York city.
Orders cancelMng the second class
ialling privrileges of the publications
were Issued by Postmaster General
Burleson late in 1917, after an inquiry
which, Mr. 'Burleson said, had shown
that; through articles published, 'each
had violated provisions of the Espion
age act. The 'Liberator-a successor
to The Masses-ceased publication
soon afterward, the publishers an
nouncing that they were unable to
,bear the addi-tional burden imposed by
the third class rates.
Both the Leader and 'the Call carried
their fights to the courts. The-Milwau

supreme court of the District of Co
lumbla to issue a writ of mandamus to
compel the postmaster general to re
