Tlie Mayor's order, Issued after pro-1 longed conferences with Police Conuntg i tdoner Woods, AUlennai.lc I'tesidrnt Mo Anany and others of the Mayor's cabi net means therefore that the guyety and lata hours characteristic of past New j Tsar's eves will not is mossursbly cur- ailed this year.

It is certainly not my Inten tion to take any action with reference to all night licenses on ew Year's eve which would encourage excessive drink ing and revelry'- Wi must recognise, however, the fact that It Is the custom lr this town of many year standing for :in unusually large number of people to go to restaurants LOU New Year's eve. lr recognition of this it seems to me nine to grunt, as the law empowers me. .. restaurants of good reputation a ppc-lnl license which will enable more people than usual to take a late supper cn this one night of the year.

"I shall therefore an; rvstauiaiit a lh time that will en their friends and of the new year In 1 efuae ense K to give to stay open all night.

I hae Instructed the Police Commissioner to see to It that decency and order are everywhere maintained.

Kor weeks they had lombarded the Mayor with appeals and arguments and protests, representing In the main that New Year's eve celebration- In this city had degenerated to be drunken orgies, some ministers complaining that New Year's, eve was the one occasion In the year when oidinarily sober members of their congregation just couldn't help from diving off the wafer wagon.

Hnt the Mayor looked Buck to the rec ord of gsi year, discovered that there hadn't been a complaint of disorder or rowdlnees occurring in any one of the 215 places thai had received special li cense,; attributed the gMd order in part at least to the populglity of dancing, which has lost little of Its vogue, and de cided that there wa.s no reason Justifying him In drying up ti e city after 1 o'clock.

Pwkrs Sny Thoy Will Not Slaughter the Noble Ani mals to Sell Steaks. WIENER MAN IS SCORNFUL The horre Is a useful animal for pull ing loads or to sell to tho Allies, but as food, well, that Is another story. That seemed to be the view of the big packing companies here who were asked yester day whether they would start Immedi ately to fatten up superannuated cab horses to tickle New York palates as a result of the Health pepartment's per mission granted on Tuesday for the slaughter of horses for food. 8norts of resentful amazement greeted the suggestion that perhaps Health Com missioner Emerson Is right and the horse doesn't make bad eating In other places best las hesleireii elt'es. Mr. Emerson has never eaten horse himself, but nfter I a scientific analysis of the noble animal as fod he sees no reason why ermine baked meats should not set forth tho table of any one else who wonts them. Apparei tly, however, tho big butchers will have none of the horse. The suggestion of slaughtering horses to eat met with the cold shoulder at tho local branches of four big packing estab lishments. Armour & Co., .Swift A Co., Inc.; Morris A Co, and SuUberger A Sons Company. Perhaps eentlment was tinctured with business, for It wrs agreed 'hat there Is scarcely enough de mand for horse flash for eating purposes to make It worth while, llalnty Illshes of Horse Ment. Pr. Emerson had been asked to enu merate some of the dainty dishes that any housewife could make of horse meat Hiid had listed soup. stew, meat balls end sausage. The last numed suggested In tlnlte poslbllltltS, as for Instance, a to tally new line of sausage Joke. A possibility far more grave, however, was that the rausags manufacturers might leap at the chance ami one might be served with one's favorite cabhorse neatly encaged in a shiny kln. Ado f c.obei, at whose factory In Morgan ave- nue, Brooklyn, are born most of the little hot dogs that have made Coney Island famous, was a--ke. about this, Would Mr. Cobel start grinding up horses for lausags meat, thin surpassing the "al and pussy cats of Mr Dunderbeck of long and story" "Not for 150,000 or 1100,000 or ISO0, 000 would I put horse meat In toy sau sages," cried Mr. tTobel In horror. "I think this Health Department order Is lowering tho standard of living but then, the American people wouldn't tand for it. Maybe they vat horse in those Europe. countries where they get only 75 cents a day and hove to p.iv 40 cert a pound for beef, hut they won't eat It here In America.

"but if somebody else would "tart it I'd have to keep my trade. I don't know I anything about this horse meat, but I i think 1 11 write Dr. Emerson and ask hlm some ways lo cook It." Por a man who never has eaten horse j Dr. Emerson is most enthuslaotlc about it as a food staple He wants it under- ' stood, however, that th Board of Health's notion was not a recommenda tion of horse as good eating. The board simply removed the ancient order against the slaughtering of horses a.s food. "We baVI had no requests to repeal tlie old law." lie explained, "we Just did It from a sense of jinl.ee. There Is 111 real reason to discriminate ngalnst h rse meat, which Is cheap aul Is eaten In most European countries Disease is far more rare In horaei than In cows or pigs and more easily discerned.

"Of course we shall Issue special 11- i censes to those who wish to slaughter horses," continued the do-tor. "and every cut win be inspected and stamped, We probably shall license only u ffW ptgjeg to prevent horse meal being eubetltoted for corned beef and other meats.
