FORTY BREWERS SUBMITTING SAMPLES TO THE TASTE OF NEW YORK LBS? AN INTERESTING SCENE AT CONCORDIA HALL. King (Janihrluns is installed for the flrsl three days of iho pre.-ent week in the Concordia Aaariubly Rooms. Nos. 28 and 30 avenue A. A custom, old in Kurono, but now in this country, is that of deciding the respective merits of tho various brewings of beer by menus ot tli~ ballot bos, ana more thao u score oi American brewers ore submitting their munulacturcs to such u test at Concordia Hull. Some tltnc smce the Cumbrians Vereiu?a society comprising from ono hundred and illty to two hundred brewers ol this city?conceived the idea of holding n beer testing festival, uud to that end sent invitations to tho more prominent movers throughout tho country to send six kegs each, us specimens or their best brewing. The luvltilion was generally accepted, rnu it is supposed that at least lorly brewers from .Sow York, Newark, Milwaukee, Cincinnati ana other cities, distinguished for their enormous producilon of beer, will submit to tho proposed test. Yesterday afternoon, at two o'clock, tbo festival begau. At tho appointed hour the doors wore thrown open and King Guuibrmus, attired In a gorgeous costume, uud bearing an immense goblet lu his right band and lu his leli a gloutntug sword, marched into tno hull, uttended by two brightly drostod pages and followed by the members of the Uuuibriuus Vereiu, walking two und two. Alter proceeding three tunes uboul the room thn procession halted, and the King, mounting u convenient stand, delivered an address upon tbo object ol tho leslivul und the nature or its operations. The object, ho said, was to decrease the importation of lager bo> r by sbowing the superiority ol that 01 American make, lhe result ol the lestivul will be to dcieruituo winch ot liioAinoriI can brewers produces the best beer, aud the modus | operundi Is us follows:?Every brewer seeds six kegs, > two ol which are put ou tup each day ao carefully wrapped in cunvas as to conceal the name ol the ' maker. The secret is kuowo only to a committee of I three, who are sworn not 10 divulge it. The kens arc distinguished by numbers uud ranged in u double row down tue centre ot tno room. Tho udmisslou too is 1 twenty live cents, wnich entitles the purchaser to six glasses ol lager and u ticket bearing the words in German, "Taste, condition, color." Haviug drunk his six giussos ol beer the voter writes ou Ills ticket tno number ol tho keg which he prefers, the printed words telling the qualities in which it excels, liy covering each keg in canvas the make oi the beer is successlully concealed, una connoisseurs do their best to distinguish tho various brands by tasting tho lager. It is said that the manufacturers theuiseivcs Iruijuoutjy lull to recoguizc their owu make. It Is u wise brewer who knows tils owu beer. The I'eslivul is ol course chiefly interesting to persons cuguged in too munuhiciure und sale ol lugor, und the attendance is conlinad ulinost exclusively to brewers und saloon 1 keepers. Various ineaus, however, have been couI trived to secure u miscellaneous assemblage. A baud ol leu pieces makes the Assembly Kooms nag, aud the hail und gull'-ries have been guyly dcckod with Hugs and banners of ull kinds aud colors.

Mayor Kly and the Hoard ol 1'olico Commissioners are invited to he present this altcruoon. THE EXCISE MUDDLE. A good many liquor dealers made anxious Inquiries at the olllce ol the Hoard ol Excise yesterday lu regard to tlio elloct ol the recent decision of the Court ol Appeals. To ull the reply was the same?namely, that tlio law would be enforced in Its plain meaning. All persons applying (or licenses will be expected to show lliui they mean to keep a hotel In good lalth, and President Morton says that while it will not bo necessary that every place should bo on tbe scale ol rnsgnillcence adopted by some ol oar hotels, yet It must be shown that each niece will bo u hotel within the moaning of the law. Evory application will he judged upon its inoriis, mid tlio intimation Is lliui a good deal 01 discrimination wnl be shown lu tlio grunting ol licenses. 11, however, all the loqulremouls of the law are coinidio i with u license cuuuol be refused. It will lio seen lrom this the mo-mug ol i'resldeut Morton's observations lies m tlio application ol them. Many ol tlio liquor dealers arc now witboul licenses, ami as a large proportion of llieni will not be able to comply with the law, It is likely thul they will go on uoiug business until closed by tue police. As a iimilur of course, numerous police raids are umoug tlio probabilities ol the ntnr luiuro. No sign has yet been given as to when they will begin, but unlicensed dealer.-. will look out lor them belore many days. As the Ho d'd ol Kxcisu can do nothing except consider uppil| callous lor license and grant or reject them, the w hole | question devolves upon tlio police authorities, who i will doubtless make some -pusmodic elloris to eulorco | ilia luw. All the deulors and restaurant keepers who I can do i o are trying lo comply with the law, und those who cannot comply are eitlior going out ol the business or keeping on witbont license. Under the lutter condition they will sooner or lutvr fluu the police uuer t belli. j SUNDAY D1UNKS AT CONE* ISLAND. | OLIVER COTTER FAILS A SECOND TIME IN HIS EFFORT TO CONVICT A SALOON PROPIIIE'OB.
