IN NO WAY A DRY SUNDAY 3aynor's Excise Plan Leaves Oases in the Desert. BIG TRADE IN REAR ROOMS c - - ■ r - ■ ■ V-.r v of B .i-s W( - . Removed, but Bars Were Abandoned. An advocate of personal liberty, with a capacity to back It up. started from the Buttery yesterday morning to prove that Mayor Gaynor > plan for the en forcement of the excise law was no more effective than were measures formerly In use. so far as getting liquid refreshment went. In each place he visited he an nounced that he was coins to take a drink in every j;aloon that he could find open. One block north of Brooklyn Bridge km found the burden of the load he had collected too great to carry fur ther and lay down In a convenient door way. It was I\irk Row that finished him. This thoroughfare he found wide open. «nd many of the bartender* who nerved him had Interesting stories to tell of his adventures. Down on the North River waterfront, one of them said, he ran into • ship news reporter, who by all th" tradition* of the craft should know whore a thirsty man could prt a drink on Sunday. Toprther they started out. but lifter a visit to several saloons hnd about arrived at the conclusion that the Imme diate neighborhood was dry, when they xnrt ■ saloonkeeper known to the re- I>i'rtcr. l*l«in trllir.R him their tale of woe he • •■.«••: to satisfy their raving for liquor, and led them by a devlmii route tn a tenement house in a side Etroet. Mounting two flights of stairs, they rn terrd a room full of men. si/ioke and brer I • ps. A t'ng'r bartender was hav ing th* time of his life trying to keep up with the rush of trade. This condi tion prevailed to some extent all over the greater city. Moist Districts Numerous. Park Row was an oasis in the desert of lower Manhattan Island, but north of the City Hall conditions became propor tionately more moist with the northerly trend of the observer. The districts known as "Corcoran'? Roost." "Paddy's Market." "Little Africa." "Heirs Kitchen" and "Gas House" were any thing but dry. Tenth avenue north of 84th street and Eighth avenue from J]«>lh street to the Polo Grounds kept jiaoe with the weather. Few patrolmen wore to he found in the neighborhood of the saloons, and whether it was because of the rain or Mayor Gaynors new plan the absence of the usual throng <>? hangrrs-on was noted. Even along the Bowery the side va'.ks were clear, and there were few sipns of drunkenness seen in the streets. Front doors were bolted and the major ity of bars were empty, as could be peon plainly from the sidewalk, practically all obstacles to an unrestricted view of the place? having been removed. The chiming of cash registers, how ever, revealed the fact that a rushing business was going on in the back rooms. In several places new faces appeared above- the white aprons of the waiters crd bartenders, and it was hinted that wh'-n the police descended with their warrants shout next Wednesday or Thursday they will have considerable difficulty in finding the men for whom the warrants were Issued. Hardly a sa loon <>' the East Side, from Idk to 424 utreet. had its -regular bartenders and waiters on duty yesterday, «nd it was *aid that these "men will be shifted to other saloons next Sunday. Oidtime "Growlers" Barred. Fu^h pastime? U "rushing the grow ler" th»» "can" and "chasing the. duck" were frowned upon by the majority of saloonkeepers. A pnil of bee r surrounded l>y a paper bag was a rarity yesterday, for the dealer* had decided to take no chances. Satchels with tin linings and pails elr;;p<d with black cloth were con- FSdered ligitlmate by the bartenders. In Kome sections of the ci'/ these who want ed to buy th« ir beer in bulk were ad mitt'd to the basement of the saloon and *< nt thrSr receptacle upstairs on the dumbwaiter. *Hi» Exempt for the districts noted, Man hattan was the rtrfest, in proportion to Its' population, of the five boroughs.

The advocate of personal liberty pre viously mentioned told a Park How bar tender a story -of his experiences that was significant of conditions hs they «x istcd yesterday. He Mid that several years ago he attended a national con vention in a Prohibition Mat*. Several hundred men from all sections of the I'nlted States were in attendance, and practically all of them decided that to be forearmed they would carry their liquid refreshment with them. Their ar rival was preceded by trunks, boxes, bar rels and other receptacles sent from ■« large city in a neighboring state, all con taining a supply of liquor. Accommodated in Back Rooms.

Fearing thr consoquences of the Mayor's orders for enforcement, thousands had laid in n supply of beer and other drinkables for Sunday use. Yesterday they found that they could pet all they wanted, provided they were willing to skulk Into back rooms nnd observe the formalities laid down by the saloonkeepers. Magistrate Barlow, president of th" Board of City Magistrates, who ha? been sitting in the Tombs court and has heard all the excise cases that have developed since Mayor Gaynor took up the matter three weeks ago, said yesterday that the same method would be continued. Ha said that the situation was brought about through the failure of the Board of Al dermen to grant District Attorney Whit man's request for more assistant district attorneys, so that one could be on duty in each court. The first excise arrest yesterday was that of Patrick McGurl. of No. MS Wrst 4."« th street, a bartender, who was taken In th» saloon at Ninth avenue and 4Gth street. John MeKegney, of No. 400 West 4Hxh street, called at the West 47th street station at about 7 •'dock last night and told Lieutenant Queen that a crowd of men were drinking and fight ing in the Ninth avenue saloon. Four plainclothes men went to the place. They said they found several men. and chairs overturned, and arrested McGurl. Patrolman Gisselbreoht. of the East 104 th street station, reported an oxcis? violation last night after an exciting ex perience with Thomas BonfiSCO, the pro prietor of I saloon at No. "3i* East lOSth street. The patrolman .saw what he con sidered a violation, and was look through the window to get the name on the license and tho number, when Bon fisco camf out of the saloon and. accord ing to Gisselbrecht, hit him on the Jaw with such force that he went feeling into the gutter. He recovered In time, to place BnnflFco under arrest and tak«» hi: 1 to the station, where hi was charged with assaulting an officer.

Scranton. Ponn., April 17. There win be no strike on the 'Delaware, Lack** wanna I v. eaten ltallroad. This de cision wan reached to-night when Gen eral Superintendent T. H. Clarke, or me Lackawanna Company informal W. <}. Lee. of the trainmen, that his company would abide by the, award of the New York Central. An ultimatum was sent late this afternoon to Superintendent Clarke n<> tifying him that unless the Delaware. Lackawanna & Western Company would abide by th* rate decided upon by the New York Central Company a strike would be called on the entire system, be ginning at 11:4.% o'clock to-night. «. Mr. Clarke sent word at 9:33 o'clock to Mr. Lee that his company would agree to the New York Central award. Word was then telegraphed to all points withdrawing the strike order, which it is said was issued at B o'clock. George A. Cullen. general pnssonser accent of the I>ncka wanna, explained for the company after the strike order had been revoked that the Lackawanna, by the terms of the compromise, had not agreed to accept whatever award til made to the Xow York Central employes. Precisely on this point had arisen the previous failure of both the Laekawanna and its men to agree to arbitration, said Mr. Cullen. The classification of wage Fchedules on the New York Central and the Lnckawanna differed widely, and what might be just for the Central and its employes might well apply inequi tably..to the I.,ackawann;u Therefore the company had insisted on representa tion on the Xew York Central board of aibitrators. By this provision the terms of the award would be sure to apply equally to both companies and their men. \v. O. i.... -of the Brotherhood of Trainmen, left late to-night for New York. Before leaving Mr. Lee said: "I have in my pocket the documents showing that Mr. Clarke will abide by any award that may be made to the < ra ployes of the New York Central Rail road." President rjarretson, of the Order of Railway Conductors, who reached here from Bcranton, Pcnn.. late last nipht. issued a statement explaining why the strike had been abandoned, as follows: A strike which was to have included con ductors, trainmen, yardmen, engineers and liremen. of the Delaware, Lacka wanna A: ■Western Railroad was ordered for 11 :■*•>. Kn.Mprn time. 10-nicht. but a settlement was rea«'h«*d. Th« company granted th« fuil demands ■•* \h(> men. Ith an agree ment tn accept the award of ti!<» arbitrators in th«* New York Central dispute. Mr. Garretßon explained that the in crrasrs asked for by the Lackawanna men wore substantially the same 83 those requested by men of the Central, and therefore it was a logical move to submit the question to the same arbitra tor?, as it were. in continuation of President Garret son'B statomtnt the Lacks mini Issued this statement late last night: . . Subject to the concurrents r>f the arbi trator?, a- compromise understanding i-.a* lopji reached between the I.ackawanna Railroad Company and Its conductors ami trainnion. wherrhy th«» I.ackawanna is t<» be represented in tho Now York Centr&J arbitration and to be governed thereby. l*p to the time of the compromise. th« men of the I-ackawanna were all primed for immediate action, and their plans for the threatened strike were complete. Every man was awaitlnp a cipher MM to come alone the line, saying the strike was on. The trainmen and conductor? said that th? ensjineers and ftrrmen would have Rotie out with them. In sympathy, as they were in honor bound to do.

The resolution declares thai it is the opinion of th<? committee that In view of the jire.=ent situation the terms of the com pany should be accepted. The first count of the ballots showed that there was a majority if nine against returning to work. A recount was ordered and the majority was reduced to seven. Tie executive committee, composed of a representative from each of the nineteen tar barns in the city, had voted on last Thursday night in favor of accepting; the terms which representatives of the Amer ican Federation of Lakot had induced the company to hold open, although the men had in a mass meeting already voted against accepting them.

In the northeastern .section of the <-ity where trade unionism is strong and Where nightly attack* have been made on the i-ars -in ".optratipn. the striker^ . were averse to accepting the terms', which they said amounted to a surrender. In view <>f the closeness of the vote ana the many irregularitw-s which the commit tee said had been .«ho\vn, it was deckled by the barn representatives to ignore the re suit and declare the terms accepted. After the passage of the resolution Presi dent Driscof] of the local carman's union loft to confer with transit officials regard- Ing details under which the resumption of work will tak.' place.

MANY PAINTINGS SEIZED Letters Also Found — Pictures Said to Have Spurious Inscrip tions — Career in Francl. Tours. France, April 17. -The arrest of Count and Countess _<!« Catizny at th" Instance of Mrs. Charles Hamilton Paine, formerly of Boston, but now of Paris*, on the t')mrgp of misrepresentation in con nection with the sale of paintings, al leged to be the work of great masters, whereas, it is said, they are only copies, has caused a great sensation. The de Gatlsnys, with their four children, lived lavishly and pave many entertainments. A magistrate ordered to-day a search of their chateau at. St. Cyr-sur-Lolre. and this resulted in th«» seizure of ex tensive correspondence and many value less paintings, nome of which are said to have been labelled with notices intended to prove their authenticity, as if they were Intended to be sold In the United States. Count de Gatlgny has been regarded as a man of mystery. He is said to have been born In London in 1%7. He was a great traveller, and sometimes went" under the name of Prince I,usi*nan and Prince Borghetto. His wife, who was a Miss Lunt, was born In Boston in IStiO. They were married in 1593. Their enter tainments, which were attended by all the aristocracy, in their Bayly lighted and finely furnished chateau, have long been the talk of the country. Several years ago Mr. Paine, who had a passion for paintings, visited the chateau and was struck by the wonderful art gallery, the greater part of which he purchased. An expert who examined the collection at Mr Paine's Paris home said that the alleged Corots, Correggios. Murillos and Titlan3 were spurious. Other accounts pay that rle <;atignys nationality is not known He ■yilri Knglish fluently and French with clifTi culty. He spends BMMI cl his tini^ in the compofition of music whi< h b* pnh n London, to whith city he makes t'reuuent trips. The Countess de Gatlgny made the ac quaintance of Mrs. Paine 'in Boston three ears ago. The latter brought her husband to the chateau, with the result that he entered into an agreement with the count whereby he rented the pict ures for SS.OOO yearly, afterward buying outright Correggio's "Sleep of Antiope." De Gatigny, it is- alleged, assured Mr. Paine that the "Sleep of Antiope" in the Louvre was spurious. After his death Mrs. Paine wished to terminate the agreement, and litigation ensued, in the course of which experts were called F.CHAUVENET'S Red Cap THE RED SPARKLING BURGUNDY OF FRANCE .
