This bill proposes to amend the sum. mary proceedings net by adding thereto a new section prohibiting the eviction of a monthly tenant for non-payment of rent unless It be alleged nnd proved that, on or beforo the first day of .May prior to the Initiation of tho proceed ings, notice In writing was personally served upon tho then tenant of the premises of tho mention of th? land lord to change the amount of rent and stating in definite terms the amount thereof. This bill would h Hiati,. disadvantage to all tenants, for it would uung to an immediate crisis all monthly tenancies in New York city and thus render the housing situation more acute than It is now. The proponent of the measure overlooks that a monthly ten. ancy Is terminable at the end of any month, upon due notice. This condition the pending measure docs not affect in any respect. The bill does not help solve the housing problem, but would only Intensify the difficulties.

This bill proposes to repeal the pro visions of the labor law that permit the installation of double swinging doors and sliding doors leading to or openlnf upon .1 moans of ogress. This measure would repeal the amend ments (secured with much dlflculty) to the requirements of the labor lew that all doors shall swing outwardly.
