There were on file In the District Attorney
once on Ja 1 3708 complaints ofexclsa vio I
lations in 1889 and 1890 and 186 Indictments I
excise cases The Grand Jury has been reflecting
flecting an what it calls this practical suspen
sion of the enforcement of the Excise laws In
this county and It has come to some interest
Ing conclusions which I presented yesterday
In the Court of General Sessions The pre
sentment says The Grand Jury ha > como
to the conclusion that there are two causes for
this condition of affairs The frt Is that tho
Grand Jury II not able to act upon and dispose
ot th great number excise complaints with
out neglecting more Important business
S C The principal cause ot the difficulty
11 deeper
An analysis of the complaint and indict
ments found In the District Attorneys office
on the let of January shows that more than
ilghtyflvo I not ninety per cent of them ro
late to violations of tho Sunday Excise law In
keeping open licensed saloons and in solllnit
on Sunday After a duo consideration of the
evidence in the cases which wo have disposed
of and with I thorough understanding of tho
constantly increasing accumulation of cases
we have become impressed with the fact that
there is a deeply rooted conviction in this
community that tho law Is unjust In its dis
crimination which thwarts Its enforcement
and that the interests the city requlro not
so much additional means of enforcing it as of
remod lllne It and remedying tbe defects Wo
believe that the law it I unjust and has fallen
Into disrepute becaute It discriminate against
clasoes and generally speaking the poorer
Classen of the community
It Is a matter ot common notoriety that
spirituous and malt liquors are to b obtained
In all of tbe private clubs of thla olty at any hour
of the day and almost any hour of the night on
te
Sunday and that at the great majority of the
hotels liquors a sold without meals the pro
prietors successfully evading the law by treat
Ing ull persons who cross theIr thresholds as
guests People ot means albO may drink at
Ruest
their homes on Sunday from private stock
without suggestion of criminality On the
other hand the poorer classes thu mechanic
the artisan the small shopkeeper tho unskilled
laborer the great majority of whom are of for
eign birth and accustomed to take beer with
their meals every day have no resource but
tho humble beer shop which however tho law
requires shall be closed and kept closed to all
hours on the Sabbath
belong us the law remains In the form
which admits of such unjust discriminations
there Is llttlo bono of properly enforcing It In
the minds of nil fair men whether acting as
Urand or petty jurors them in a natural
aversion to branding us a criminal th unfor
tunate beershop proprietor or bartender for
the same act which under the present law Is
Innocent when committed by a club or man
ager of a hotel To remedy tbnso evils the
Urand Jury respectfully suggest to the Court
that a modification of the present law should
to enacted by tbe Legislature whereby the
sale of liquor on Sunday should be forbidden
in all places without respect to persons and
without respect u lIcenses
Or that a provision should be made bl
which only licensed persons should be per
mitted to sell during certain hours on Sunday
under proper restrictions and with duo re
gard to sacred observances
Rarj he law should apply to all classes and In
all cases alike with no discrimination
Foreman Charles B Fosdiok said that this
presentment had been adopted bl the Grand
Jury byavote of IB for t 0 against
The presentment is timely said Judge
Cowing and its suggestions Indicate that
the only proper remedy Is through the Legis
lature Possibly something may be don be
fore tho Leglslatuie adjourns to remedy the
glaring defects the Iloura which you have
called attention The presentment will be
placed on tile and I will see that a copy of it is
forwarded to tbe Legislature so that some
tblng may b done to present what there no
doubt is aunlform disregard of the tore is I
it does not seem to be enforced certainly I In I
not in this court because public sentiment is
not with it Ninetenths of the cases that tore
here to this court are for violation unrter
the Sunday clause and I am told that
vary few men sell liquor in this city
now without license I dont think that many
sell after hours There a very few com
plaints of sale to habitual drunkards but there
are some sales to children I seems to me
that If the Sunday law could be amended to as
to commend Itself to the public something
could bo done There coulil be a law that
could be enforood A law that cannot ba en
forced is > worfo tlian no law a all When ona
law Is disregarded I makes people feel that
they can disregard all laws Therefore I think
your presentment is timely and wise and I
hope tho Legislature will take such action
upon It as to make a law that can be enforced
and that will meet with public approvnl

duct Calculated to Arouse Suspicion
Two numbers of the Republican Committee
on Contested Beats sat in solemn state In a
mal hal in the Graid Opera House last
night and witnessed a row In which one ot the
wicked Olbbs follower unset another gentle
man and bumped his head on the Door
The hall was In Its usual condition for an In
vestigation ot a Republican squabble In the
Thirteenth ohoketul ot men and tobacco
smoke
Glbbs was having his Inning and after
Roundsman Dicker and several other men had
testified to the honesty and Impartiality of the
lost primary James King Duffy Secretary ot
the Republican Association climbed up to the
Witness chair for the sixth time Mr Duffy
was asked the usual questions about the rolls
and how they were kept
The Questions were asked him bl Henry L
Sprague who was prompted bl William H
Heed a stalwart Cowie man These two gen
tlemen sat near each other and only a few feet
From the platform on which sat the witness and
the committee
Shortly after 10 oclock two toughlooking
citizens pushed themselves Into view from the
crowd mat blocked the doorway and swag
gerlnir up the aisle gotnearenough to Bprnmio
and Heed t touch them Frank Brown of 817
West Twentythird street sat just behind Heed
and one of the newcomers who had a lone
moustache that was tlercelr twisted began
pushingBrown back with the otidunt intention
of Retting still I nearer to Heed and bprnguo
Brown asked thu tnughlooklbic gentleman
not to stand before blm but the latter said
with an oath
Ive got BS much right to stand before yon
as IOU have to stand before mo
Brown retorted and the blgmonstaohed man
seized him bl the shoulders and lifting him
from the chair brew him headlong on the floor
with much violence
IJrowns head struck the floor and a gash
was cut in his scalp from which the blood
llowed over his face Ho staggered to his feet
and thrust his hand into hut hip pocket It
looked a though he was going to draw a
weapon but only his handkerchief come out
Everybody sprang to his feet and pressed
forward and the big moustached man prue
fellow faced the crowd with great coolness
James A Blanchard who presided banged his
Ilp
gavel on the table and ordered everybody be
seated and to be quiet
Ulbbs stood near the wall on one side of the
hal with an unconcerned expression Finally
ho caught the ere of the hlgmoustached man
and beckoned to him The latter obeyed the
signal Instantly and slouched over to Olbbss
side with his friend Presently both the
toughs disappeared
After the hearing Rood produced a man
named P hOmes of 130 Ninth avenue wbo
told the reporters that he had beard Ulbbs tell
the toull men to get in between Heed and
Ulbbs was asked what he knew about the
row He begged the reporters to get the story
rlgnt and do Him justice lie said that Brown
was a orank and the Master of a lodge of
Orangemen He said that Brown began the
row by calling the blgmouataobed man a
Catholic coupled with a vile epithet
He was asked I It wa true that he sent tho
toughs over to Interfere with heed and
Sprague He doubled his flats and said
When I want anything of that kind done Ill
do It myself Ill do that Dutch butcher my
self I wont end a man
Mr Reed Is a butcher Mr Sprague im
proved tbe occasion by telling Chairman
Blanchard of the committee that tho row
would give him some Idea of how the prima
ries in the district are held tl
Brown the wounded man went home He I
l not seriously injured ell 1 not prominent
In either the Cowle or Glbbs faction I was
the supposed intention of the toughs to crowd
Heed from Sprague s side so that Tie could not

A FATAL FIRE rD
A Brooklyn Incendiary Ret a lire at the
Foot of a Dumbwaiter Shn
Another attempt It Is believed WAS mid
last night to fire a big apartment house In the
loner section ot Brooklyn
The location of the latest Incendiary attempt
was the fourstory flat building at 336 Bridge
street within a couple of blocks of the fatal
lire In the double tenement in Bad tree on
Sunday night The house is I crowded with
t tenants two families occupying each ot the
lour floors
About 8 oclock Mrs Farrell one of the occu
pants on the fourth floor smelled fire and look
Ing down the dumb waiter saw som thing In
a blaze In the cellar at the bottom of the shaft
She alarmed the tenants of the other floors In
an instant and buckets of water were poured
down the shaft from each floor and soon the
flro which had not extended beyond tha cellar
was extinguished
An Investigation In the cellar showed that an
attempt had been made to flre tha building
An Ice cream tub filled with rags and rubbish
which had probably been saturated with kero
sene oil had been placed directly at the bot
tom of the dumbwaiter shaft and a match ap
plied to the inflammable stuff
Had it not been for the timely discovery
made by Mrs Varrell the flames would have
shot up through the shaft and communicated
to each floor with such rapidity that loss of life
could scarcely have been averted
