Dealers Believe President
Is Ready to Proclaim the
and Stock Is Rushed In
New York liquor dealers have been
informed, it was said yesterday, that
President Wilson soon would proclaim
demobilization completed and prohib??
an as a war-time measure no longer
Acting on this advice, distillers, whole?
salers, hotels and caf?s are preparing
for an immense business to begin with?
in the next seven days. Huge quantities
of whiskey aie arriving daily at the
'bon led warehouses here from the dis?
tilleries in Kentucky, advance orders
are being placed with wholesalers by
hundreds and bartenders and waiters
have been called back to their posts in
anticipation of a rich harvest before
January 16, when the constitutional
prohibition amendment goes into effect.
Charles Leopold, chairman of the
hoard of directors of the Family
Liquor Dealers' Association, declared
yesterday that numerous irregularities
have arisen out of the rush of dealers
and individuals to obtain stocks of
liquor. He explained that, in accord?
ance with the recent ruling of the At?
torney General, certificates for mate?
rial under bond in warehouses could be
sold in advance and stocK claimed as
soon as the war-time measure was re?
scinded. Hundreds of fictitious certi
I ficates, he asserted, have been sold and
placed in circulation, calling for stocks
i that do not exist.
The prices to the consumer, said
Mr. Leopold, will not be higher than
1 before prohibition went into effect, al
: though the dealers are paying on an
average of f>0 cents a gallon mor?.
; "The drinks over the bar,' he said, "wilt
i be sold for about 2,r> or HO cents, ac
\ cording to the brand. There will be
; no cheap whiskey and most of the stuff,
being sold in bond, will be case goods
! and a pure article. You'll be able, too,
! to get a good glass of wine for 10 or
15 cents, which is really a pre-war
Mr. Leopold said he had been in?
formed that the government will also
make some provision for liquor not
. sold before January 16.
At the office of the Distillers Seeurl
ties Corporation it was said that train
? load after train load of whiskey has
been coming in from Kentucky for the
last two weeks. An official declared
' that numbers of brokers are placing
\ large orders for home use.
The situation in the beer brewing
i industry, saloonkeepers say, will re?
gain the same. The breweries, they
: asserted, have decided to stick to the
I 2.76 per cent product. Brewers are
making more money on the 2.75 prod?
uct than they could on the better beer.

To Go Back to Owners
i Strand Roof Is
Robbed of $3,000
Louis Batch, bookkeeper for the
Strand Roof, was going over his pay- j
roll at noon yesterday in his office :
?on the third floor of 1583 Broadway,
' between Forty-seventh and Forty
eighth Streets, when two men entered.
! As the bookkeeper looked up both men

: Batch could "put 'cm up or take the
To the bookkeeper in whose ears
'? the clamor of noontide on Broadway
I rang, the situation was incredible. He
] could hear the clatter of typewriters
in adjoining offices when doors opened
I in the hall to emit lunch-seeking clerks
i and stenographers. The two youths
who confronted him with revolvers in
their hands and not even a handker
: chief or upturned collar to conceal
their features must be phantoms of
his imagination, he thought.
Mechanically he raised his hand to
rub his ear in a fashion ho has when
; pondering, and at the motion one ol
[ the phantoms leaped forward. Batch,
his arm half raised, struck out in dazed
fashion, and the fight was on. It did
not last long. Within a minute or
] two one of the bandits clipped the
bookkeeper on the head with the butt
i of his revolver.
Hatch regained his senses about half
; an hour later. There was a peculiar
?odor in his nostrils which led him to
believe that the slight wound in his
?scalp was not the only reason for hi?
: period of unccnsciousnc -s. Ho stag
i gered to the safe, which was open
i when the two men entered. It was
still open, but $3,000 which had been
j in it was gone.
The bookkeeper called Lawrence
1 Graf, manager of the .Strand Roof, by
?telephone, and they reported the hold
j up at headquarters. Meantime Bach!
'had his scalp wound dressed. As the
! Strand Roof does most of its business
tin the evening, Batch was the sole
I occupant of the office at noon.
Although Batch and Graf were as
: sured that every effort would he made
to capture the robbers, the police of
the West Forty-seventh Street station
?asserted last night, that they hadn't
? heard of any hold-up at the Strand

Disintegration Ordered by
Judge Mayter May Mean
Several Fares Instead
of the Present Nickel
Federal Judge Juilus M. Mayer yes- '
terday directed Receiver Lindley M.
Garrison of the B. R. T. to return to
the Brooklyn City Railroad Company
for independent operation the twenty
six surface lines which had been
leased since 1893 by the Brooklyn
Heights Railroad Company.
The order directs that the lines be
? returned October I and forecasts a
complete reorganization of Brooklyn's
principal surface lines in which so
, called rival companies operating under
; separate franchise contracts may
? abolish transfers and continue on a
' straight live-cent fare basis for each
: line. The operation of the main lines
through the borough by separate com?
panies will impose on passengers from
\ one to four five-cent fares on some
of the longer hauls.
The disruption of the system, as ex?
plained in the court, Mas based en
Receiver Garrison's inability to pay
the $.'100,000 quarterly rental due the
Brooklyn City Railroad Company from
the Brooklyn Heights Company. Carl
M. Owens, who represented the re?
ceiver, owing to Mr. Garrison's illness,
declared that a total of $696,000 in
rental and taxes was due the Brooklyn
City Company on October 1. The re?
ceiver said he had no option in the
matter but to default and surrender
the lines to the owners. He said the
lines were already showing a monthly
deficit of $50,000.
"The only thing for the receiver to
do is to throw up his hands and shout
for help," Mr. Owens said.

PARIS. Sept 29 (By Thc Associated
Press).?A resolution demanding that
Fiume be made an Italian city has
been passed by the Italian Chamber of
Deputies, according to information re?
ceived by the Italian delegation here.
During the session of the Italian
Chamber yesterday a considerable
number of troops was concentrated
around the centre of the city and on
the main streets leading to it. Ac?
cording to the Rome, correspondent of
"Le Journal," the city may be said to
be under martial law.
Rome dispatches relating the result
of the mission of Admiral Cagni to
Fiume are much commented upon, par?
ticularly the statement attributed to
the admiral that in his opinion the
only solution is the annexation of
Fiume. To this statement much sig?
nificance is attached.
ROM!-;, Sept. 29 (By the Associated
Press). The Serbian frontier has been
onlered closed for a period of fifteen
days, according to a dispatch to 'he
"Tempo"' from Trieste.
Parliament was dissolved to-day
after the Chamber had adjourned Sun?
day night until Wednesday, when it
was to decide whether a vote should
be taken on the question of discussing
the peace treaties. Flections will be
held November 1?'? and parliament will
reassemble December 1.
Debate in the Chamber of Deputies
was interrupted yesterday by a free
fight which lasted ten minutes and in
which about 100 deputies participated.
The opinion is expressed in some ?iuar
ters that the Cabinet, as a result of
the riotous incident, may decide to
resign rather than plunge the country
into a struggle during the general elec?
tion. It is asserted the light in the
chamber indicates what would occur in
In consequence of the fight in the
chamber ?several duels were announced
between deputies and between deputies
Nitti Asks for Vote First
A prolonged heated discussion pre?
ceded the riotous scene. The mem?
bers of the Parliamentary League in?
sisted upon asking the government
whether it intended to discuss the
treaties before adjournment. Premier
Nitti answered he would first have a
vote of confidence, and then whatever
Cabinst should be in power would de?
cide what should be done. Thereupon
members of the Parliamentary League
invaded the ministers' bench, shout?
ing and gesticulating.
A party of Socialists thereupon
rushed from their seats and faced their
adversaries, the group soon engaging
Premier Nitti, who had left the gov?
ernment benches, returned to his place
when the disturbance had somewhat
: subsided. He was greeted with ap
Premier Nitti rose to condemn those
. who were now urging the nation into
? another war. At this Nationalist mem?
bers jumped up and shouted:
"No, no, we don't want war."
This met with a retort from the
Socialists, who cried: "Yes, Yes! You
do want war."
Deputy Raimondo, in the midst of
?the Nationalists, cried: "We don't
i want war, while you want civil war."
Suspension of Sitting Threatened
The. ensuing pandemonium was so
great that the speaker threatened to
j suspend the sitting. When calm was
restored Premier Nitti continued, de
! daring no one really desired civil war
i or war of any kind whatever. He
: recommended moderation with a view

normal condition. For the present un

Attempts to Derail Trains
For the first time during the strike

The Exchange Telegraph says the
government considers the strike so well

summon Parliament. It adds that in
consequence of the disposition of many
strikers to return to work the National
Union of Raihvaymen's executive com?
mittee has found it necessary to double
the pickets at a majority of the Lon?
don stations and at many stations in
the provinces. It also says that 75 per

Bragg Makes Neto
Altitude of 21,000 Feet
is Reached in Official
Test of Navy Machine
Caleb S. Bragg, the sportsman aviator,
yesterday established a new official
world's altitude record for seaplanes by
nscending 21,000 feet with a passenger
in a Loening hydro-monoplane at Port
Washington. Cole J. Younger, of the
American Flying Club, accompanied
Pragg as passenger.
The same monoplane on Saturday es?
tablished a world's record for sea?
plane speed by flying at the rate of 131
miles an hour over a measured course.
It is of the same type that the'
United States navy is now experiment
ing with on battleships.
Yesterday's flight was officially ob?
served by members of the contest eom
i mittee of the American Flying Club:
! .1. B. Taylor, jr.; Frank Vernon and
Cole J. Younger. The monoplane took
off in th** wind at 5:17 o'clock and
?alighted at 6 : r.? last night. The climb
; to 21,000 feet was accomplished in fifty
minutes and the descent in twelve min
No attempt was made to reach Roland
Rohlf's record of 754,610 feet, which
. was made in a land machine. Neither
? of the two men in the machine was
equipped with oxygen apparatus or any
! other special altitude aids.
The monoplane is the property of
? the United States navy, but is in the
hands of Grover Loening, its designer,
; for purposes of tests. The machine
' has a wing spread of thirty-three feet
four inches and an overall length of
twenty-five feet. It is equipped with a
300 horse power Hispano Suiza motor.
The new record eclipses the altitude
[ of 13,900 feet achieved by Bragg in an
' F. B. A. flying boat in March, 1917. It
? is thought this record was surpassed
; by flying boats or seaplanes during the
i war, but no official records exist of any
' such performance. Bragg was a cap?
