WHOLE TOWX WIDE OPEN
NEW LAW MISSES FINE.
Police Foil to Enforce Prentice 'Act
— Fort George Booms.
Saloons and hotels to this cKy. with a few ex
ceptions, appeared to take no notice, whatever
yesterday of the new Prentice law. which went
; Into effect on May 1. The flr»t Sunday under
the new law. which, lawyers say. Is practically
a more strict Interpretation of the Balnea law,
''■ was psjwed with just as wide open saloons and
hotels doing Just as much business as in Sun-
I days past. This was particularly noticeable at
'i Fort George, where everything was wide open.
There was no pretence whatever to serve sand
wiches with drinks, and no attempt was made to
hsve doors closed or curtains drawn.
Most of the larger hotels took a chance yester
day and opened their bars, lntendlar .to make
t«st cases if any arrests were msde. But the
police appeared to be singularly inactive In ex
cise cases, and there were no more arrests than
on any other Sunday, and what arrests were
made were only for the usual excise violations
In saloons. A few of the largest hotels did not
take chances, and did not «erve transient guests
even in the rear of secluded bar rooms. Guests
were served ln their rooms or had drinks served
at their meals, but aside from this could obtain
none. In other large hotels guests got drinks,
but sandwiches were served. The bars were
Ufhted and bartenders were working, but only
ruests that were known could obtain liquor.
The most flagrant violations of the excise law
appeared to be in the small Raines law hotels
and the saloon without hotel privilege*. In
these there was no attempt at secrecy. Not even
the eandwiches were served, but in some places
an empty plate on the tables gave an impression
that there had been a sandwich, which some
unusually hungry customer had eaten earlier
In the day. Even within a stone's throw of
police stations the saloons were open.
On the upper West Side, where they are many
Saloons along Columbus avenue, nearly every
•aloon was doing business. In one case, with
a policeman standing on the corner near the
saloon, five men were seen to leave without say
trouble. Any one who desired to could enter.
In the Tenderloin section practically all the
saloons and hotels were open, and no attempt to
loo* out for the police was made.
At Fort George, on part of the main thorougn
fare everything was open. The Fort Wendell
Hotel was wide open, and on the front of the
building was a newly painted sign, reading:
"Open. Walk in."
In the large rooms of this place there were
hundreds of patrons drinking. A patrolman
strod in front for some time, and chatted
with friends as they passed. One of the largest
©f the concert halls at Fort George was crowded,
and drinks were served without any sandwiches.
The Rev. Dr. John P. Peters, in "St. Michael's
Messenger," distributed yesterday at St.
Michael's Episcopal Church. 99th street and
Amsterdam avenue, expressed his satisfaction
at the passage of the Prentice law. Dr. Peters
was the chairman of the committee of four
teen, which had been working for the last three
years for the suppression of the Raines law
hotels, rtegarding such hotels Dr. Peters said:
"It is said that at least five hundred of these
dens of infamy will be obliged to close this
month, and the surety companies that furnish
bonds are demanding of the others more serious
assurances of compliance with the law."
Yesterday's arrt-sts for violations of the Ex
cise law. as reported by the police, were 38, as
•gainst 34 one week ago yesterday. The arrests
•by police precincts were as follows: Oak street.
1; Madison street, 1; Macdougal street. 1; Mul
berry street, 4; Union Market, 1; sth street, 2;
Jdercer street, 1; West 2Oth street. 2: East 22d

Coney Island saloon and hotel men are much
perturbed over the new Prentice Excise law.
Not a single hotel at the resort is operating with
a license, although they have all paid their money
for licenses and hold the receipts of the Excise
Commissioner. The Inspectors of the Buildings
Department have not visited Coney Island, and
the business men and proprietors of the resorts
are awaiting their coming with some trepida
Several places will have to be torn out and
entirely remodelled. Although they have not
received their licenses, all the places were doing
business as usual, and in a great many places
even the regulation piece of bread or cracker
was not served.

and despite the outrage at Moscow to-day and

The Moderates carried another feature of the
programme of the Constitutional Democratic
congress to-day by adopting the scheme of party
organization, which places the control of both
the policy and the tactics of the party in the

The Deputies spent most of the day discussing
their tactics for agitation in the country, and at
the evening session the agrarian programme,
fixing the maximum size of farms, the redistri

exceeding this maximum, etc.. was introduced.
The Radicals immediately attacked this, de
manding the nationalization and socialisation
