H has protested against the appear ance of many plays here, notably "Mrs. Warren's Profession," and George Bernard Shaw was added to the long line of humorist and sa tirists who have exercised their tal ents on the noted secretary 'of the So ciety for the Suppression of Vice. 7 Where public opinion and the courts held that Mr. Comstock had been wrong in finding" evil in what purport ed to be art, the controversy .was the finest of adverting. "September Morn" Is the most recent Instance. Jn May, 1913, Mr. Comstock threatened to arrest a Tucal art dealer who had the original by PauJ Chabas on ex hibition. The arrest waa. never made, but the public soon got a chance to decide whether "September Morn" was art or not. because hundreds of thou sands or lithographic reproductions were" on sale In stores In every part of the United States in a few weeks. Up to 1914 Mr. Comstock had caused the arraignment In State and Federal courts or 8.7 persons, of which 2.70 either pleaded guilty or were convicted. In these cases fines were imposed to the extent of $237,134.80 , and Imprison ment to the total of 65 years, eleven months and twenty days.

In 1SS7 he came to New York with 13.80 In his pocket and got a Job as porter In a dry goods house. In 1S72, after he had risen to be a salesman, the Incident occurred which started him on his career. .He found two of his fellow employes with indecent books, learned from them that they had obtained them from a sort of Cir culating library In Center street, and on March 2, MR, arrested the dealer with ample evidence of his guilt The first few days of the camrjalsn used up all of "his own money, but the Morris K.
