Taken together they seem, to .have a slnglo inspiration and a common purpose, amounting to criminal con spiracy, to compel the city authori ties, by threats of one kind and an other, to give the railway companies extra fare. There is no strike at the present time, and there has not been any In Manhattan. "There Is a strong Intimation that a atrlko might be profitable for tho employees as w.ell as for tho railway companies. The supplication of the receiver of tho New York Railways Company, the Interborough Rapid Transit Company, and of the Presi dent of the Brotherhood of the New York Ratlwaye employees for police protection does not ring true to me. It sounds as though someone In au thority has said to the men, Tou go ahead and strike and make plenty of trouble and the city iwiUhave to give us increased fares which, we can di vide up.'

As revised, thcblU-wM not inter fere with storogo and personal uso of intoxicants in the" homes of in dividuals. Probably the most liberal amend ment to the House bill is a provision exempting from penalties any person- manufacturing non-lntoxl eating elder and fruit juices exclusively for use in his house." This would permit home manufacture of light winos and cider for personal consumption and the amendment, except by implication In connection with the definition of Intoxicants, does not define "non-ln- toxlcatlng" beverages. Stricken from tho House bill was the provision making it unlawful for persons to be intoxicated or to drink liquor on trains, street cars, Jitneys, boats or other publio conveyances. Another liberalization Is a provision that reports of manufacture, sales and transportation of liquor, mada to the Internal Revenue Collector, should not be open to Inspection of the general public, but kept solely for scrutiny of the Commissioner, hla agents, court, or otbor officers. 8EARCH WARRANT PROVISION MADE LESS DRA8TIC.
