Brady called attention to the last Federal revenuo act, which provides a tax of 5 cent, on every additional ticket charge to 60 cents, and a tax of 80 cent, on every added charge above that. Moreover, law says must stamp on back of ticket ills name and tho price at which tho ticket 1b sold. \1 have more than 10,000 tickets, care- fully preserved, to show that this law Is being disregarded.\ raid Air. Brady In response to n query by Mr. Talley OS to how they obtained these tickets, llr. Brady exp'alncd that It was done by a system called \digging\ Inducing relatives, friends or passing to go to bos office and buy a couple of seats them. He denied there iiver any collusion between a box office 'man and the speculators, saying that any manager would discharge a treas- urer revealed In such an alliance. After Mr. Talley admitted he hlm-m- lf a patron of McBrlde's, Mr. McBrlde pointed that there were a few agen- cies that were turning over their tickets tb scalpers, no that latter could sell them at a huge profit. This Anally drew following pledge from Mr. Brady for the managers: \When an arrest Is .made.

They found quickly that one of these rights consisted In the right to pay another $10 and Boon aftor that another $10, or if the member showed reluctance tho house accepted $5. The privileges of tho club were that one might tarry there in the evenings, meet other members and read tho elgns upon the walla. The signs, upon pasteboard and shift- ing from night to night, advised mem- bers that this waa the Temple of Love; that tho way to win fair lady Is to bo generous: that It was good thing to remain in good standing, nnd that was Impolitic upon being Introduced to a fellow member to ask the weight of his or her bank roll right away.

He cent his resignation yester- day to Charles F. Jtattlgan, State Su- perintendent of Prisons, saying that ho had \reluctantly reached the conclusion that the work of tho position was un congenial.\ Privately he let It bo known that he was not enthused by tho idea ot his threo young daughters growing up In the prison atmosphere. Ho resigns to accept another position under the State government. Just what his new Job Is, Is not made public. He declared that nothing except his aver' slon to the Job and Its many drab duties impelled him to resign. HU resigna- tion takes effect December IB.

Ho continued nnd en- couraged tho principles of the Mutual Welfare League, but eschewed the circus stunts that former wardens had Incor porated Into this system of convict au tonomy. Ho had the respect of the vast majority of tho prisoners and had their approval as a Just, lovel headed, fearless man. He denied that ho had received word from Albany that nny of his charges had complained of \hard treatment\ and in his letter ot resignation he thanki Mr. Rattlgan for the latter's \kind nnd helpful cooperation.\ Vagrant rumors have It that Thomas Mott Onborne, creator of the Mutual Welfare League, Is In a receptive mood and that his friends would like to see mm reinstated hh warden. Such possibility, however. Is Fi!d to be remote. Tho appointment of William Hunt of Buffalo as Warden of Great Mcauow Prison, nt Comstock, was announced yesterday at Albany by Supt.

PARADES and and Merchants Millions in matricula- tion Tur.nv.er' Loss of Trade, He Says. Police Commissioner Enrlght, putting his finger on what he thought was a v tal matter at a meeting of the Forty- sfcond Street Property Owners and Merchants Association yesterday, an nounccd ho was against having any more parades In Fifth avenue. He saw tho loss to merchants on these occasion.' la tremendous because of the temporary holiday, taken by their employees anj by the Indisposition of the public to duj anything from Fifth avenue shops whlie they are out to see marching heroes of other persons to whom honor is belnji given. Mr. Enright asserted that the Twent seventh Division parade represented : loss of $10,000,000 to Fifth avenue me;- chants, and that no parade goes by without taking Its toll In trade. In tho day's when Fifth nvenuo was a resi- dential street, parades wero proper, he said, but New York merchants cannot afford to have their profits worn off ny repetitions of such demonstrations us havo taken place during and slnco the war. The Commlsloner thought that River- side Drive was tho next best route tor parades, and asked the association t.) give consideration to the proposal. Tut crowds and hilarity In Fifth avenue during big demonstrations now and then resulted In damage to store windows, ho urged In nddltlon. The meeting was held at the Hotel Commodore. Improvements In Pershlnj Square and additional postal facilities, for the district were discussed. HYLAN CONCILIATION BOARD \CANCELLED\ Commission in Longshore Strike Told to Quit.

T. Stewart & Co. Good morning! This is November 14 ! The weather today prob' ably xvill be fair. Neither for Temporary Pride of Party nor for hnman friendships should we gamble away at Washington any part of the Constitution of the United States or the Declaration of Independence. We must hold steadfastly to the foundations the nation was built upon by Washington, Jef- ferson, Franklin, Hancock and Hamilton. A hurried half-don- e piece of work only adds to our discon tent and puts off further the unity of the world and the set tlement of the labor and financial questions now so dis turbing. Hundreds of thousands of men and women at work in all New York will push up produc- tion at the sight of daylight, cheer up the workers and start forward with a new spirit as soon as the treaty is passed and properly safeguarded. The next step will be for the United States Government to stop the heavy outflow to other countries of foodstuffs and fab- rics that make a scarcity of everything in the United States, and keeps up high prices. Prices can never go down while costs and wages go up and there is no increase in production. Very few store- keepers are taking from the people all the profit they are entitled to.
