One hundred and twnnty-flve ot them wore In solemn

fifty thousand readers, so that to a certain extern Ibcy i

that should command respect. True, their various !

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

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

liquor dealers arc now witboul licenses, ami as a large

A Hlkai.1i reporter ycslerduy called on a large Qrtn
of milk dealers in mo juppe'r part of the city lu order
to see sumo experiments in.idu with tho luctomuier;
this is a tester ol iuIIk, a small glass lustruiitunt shout

until tho stoiu records 100; if it is wulerud It will sink

A large, deep glass was brought und half ot tho puro

showed lilty, declaring the presence ol (ha

the habit ot being lowed there, aud It is the opinion
ol many residents tint: the contents arc dumped in the

two large dung wagons drawn by two borsus cacti,
and having two men on both, were seen coming Irom
the dumping ground. Two boats wero lying hoside

It lulled to do any good. Hesldouts as lar back as
