Mayor Mitehel to Allow Spp

200 Kcstaurniits.
ANSWERS PROTESTS
BY RECALLING PAST
Mayor Mltr.hed decided yesterday that
oustom and the desire of the people
Justify him In permitting a reasonably
wet New Tear's ere, and he wrote a
letter to that effect to William M. Ander
toi). State Superintendent of the Antl
Haloon Lesgue, and the llev. O. R. Mil
lar, Htate Superintendent of the New
York Civdo league, both of whom have
h"on active In voicing the protest of
ministers and ohurchfolk against what
thiy termed New Year's eve "carous
ing unit revelry."
In accordance with the Mayor's de
cision upeclal permits to sell drlnlut
until 3 A. M. will bo Issued to restau.
rants and cabarets tlint do not have all
ilgiht licenses and whose ability to pre
serve oidcr Is recommended by tlio po
lice and by tho Mayor's advisers. Fur
thermore, sufficient time will be given to
the patrons of these placea to consume
the oelehratlon fluids ordered before 3
A. M. ai d to make u dlgidtled and un
hurried exit
Tlin.t of .-..urse means anything; that
the police and the proprietors of the res
taurant are willing for It to mean. No
person will be allowed to buy after tho
rear 1916 is three hours aired, but th
Mayor's order Is taken to be flexible
enough to permit oalebrators to finish
whatever may happen to be standing
upon their tables.
8 All Night Saloons Uses.
Assuming that the majority of per
sons Who look forward to New Year's
eve as Uwlr time lionored opportunis
ts relax, let off steam, frivol and bounce
little halloons with true bohetnian ft ban.
don are quite willing to call It a ntghl
by 3:30 A. M.. or even 4 A M . or what
ever hour It may be that the tablet opt
ft properly cleared and all Iwttl.-s and I
glasses are dry. It will be perfectly pos- j
HlWe for the others those who are (
f.rowllshly inclined and want to see the)
tun come up to hurry to any one jf
.hO twenty-eight restaurants and Cafot
that enjoy all night licenses.
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. Technically it tm- i

proprietors, and u;on restaurant pa I
troiia. but actually it will make little
rtlfferen e as the or ler Is Interpreted,
lbs letter which Mayor Mltchel sent
to rhe protastantl was as follows:
"Your letter of December If ha.-, been
received. 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.
Just Went to ColOtMMtOi
"Most of those who go io restsurants
go msrsly to celebrate with their friends
he coming of the now year, without tho
disorder to whi .-h you object. I'ertuls
slon to restaurants to remain open will
not be granted exespt upon the basis
of their good reputation as established
oy experience. It does not seem to me to
1 .e neoossary, nor do reopectabls cltisens
desire, that people should remain in
restaurants past the
able their, to meet
celebrate the coming
an orderly way.
"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 Intend, however, ti
to restaurants of good reputat
extend
n, for
thlH night oniv. the privilege of remain
ing open until 2 o'clock, which is one
hour beyond the closing time for restau
rants Which regularly have these
licenses. I hae Instructed the Police
Commissioner to see to It that decency
and order are everywhere maintained.
Restaurants thai permit drunkenness or
dlHonler will he refused similar provt
elom In the future. "
The Mayor's decision wag a nl-:i:.,-t
disappointment to ministers and church
organizations that WOIO demanding a 1
'clock closing order for New Year's eve.
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.
IhiKdrlmn Last Y car.
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.
He Understood, too, that most of tue
rf tail rant proprieties would he willing
enough to stop selling drinks nt 11 o'clock,
since their OgpeHgnoO had shown them
that most people are tired enough by that
time to think of heudlng for Lome and
bed.
A few more than COO applications for
this years 3 o'clock special licensee
have been received at the Mayor's, utllee.
Ttefore granting any one of these the
Mayor will receive g report from Com
miss! Oner VYOOdl as to the -general char
acter of the applicant and the reputation
of the piece for obedience to the law
and the suppression of rowdyism. It
Is believed that practically all of the ap

RUSH TO EAT HORSE
MEAT CAN'T BE SEEN !
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. Neve- would
Americans or German American! eat
horse sausage, pferdwurstl bah I"
One pa kei suggested that perliaps

Mlaht -.11 Horse to Keep
Trade.
"Well, I wouldn't start serving It,"
said William Ladner, ma' ager of '. ,t-
leu's restaurant ai 231 Grand Street,!
"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.
"Horse meat. I believe, is rather
coarse, coarser even than corni-l beef I
do not think that horse steaks or CUtletl
would be particularly tempting, but Per
haps they would, however, ne soup meat,
for sausages and stews it Is very goad,
Also a pure horse meat ball would he
belter than meat b ills of scrape.
"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. No,
thus far nobody has applied lor u li
