I am not at liberty to discuss that matter with, any one except District At torney Swann, to whom I shall make a report Monday morning." Metiraw told his visitors that he knew llavin well, but had seen. Liggett only a few times. He said that once since the accident res had seen Thomas Meagan, the taxlcab chauffeur who con veyed them to ids house. That was when the man called at his house to collect the fare for the trip.

This statement, based upon a thorough investigation of the grill room fracas, put the whole blame upon McGraw, and held that his conduct toward Boyd had been such that the actor was obliged to administer a thaashlng to him. It contained no reference to the use of a water bottls by either party to the bout. In regard to the statement by Mc Graw that he bought part of his alco holic stock at tho Lambs Club, Mr. Drown said: "I can only explain agalrKlhe point that we have endeavored to make clear within the. last few days. If Mr. Mc Graw or any one else bought any liquor from an employos of tho Lambs Club It wss a private transaction. The club had nothing to do with It and would urn have tolerated It had It been known to tho officers of the organization. If any liquor was obtained there the Lambs are not to blame."
