THE EICISE LAW. Preooncerted Said by the Police on Barrooms Yesterday. 1 MULTITUDE OF ARRESTS MADE. Curious L>ay and Night Scenes in the Courts. BOW THE SUNDAY LAW WAS ENFORCED. Full List of the Prisoners and Their Fate, HOW THE RAID WAS MET. A Police Justice on the Bench, Another Acting as Cierk. G" Yesterday was a busy day for the police. Orders ?rero Issued on Saturday for the strict enforcement of the Excise law, and tho result was tho wholesale arrest of liquor store proprietors and their barkeepers, com xnencing at midnight of Saturday and continuing throughout yesterday. The persons arrested during Saturday nigbt wero arraigned yesterday morning at the different police courts, and either neld in nominal hall or discharged when the charges were considered frivolous by tho police justloes. Around the police lourts animated crowds gathered In the morning, and Hie same scenes were transferred later to the different precinct station houses. Below is a summary of the Sections of (he law relating to closing houses:? ' CHAM-UK 173 OK TDK LAWS OP 1870. SOTKH 5.?Licenses granted, us in this act provided, ?nail not authorize any person or persons to expose lor i ?ale, or sell give away or dUposo or, uny stronir or i iptrituous liquors, wines, ales or beer on any day be- i iween the hours of one and live o'clock in the morning. And all places licensed us aloresaid shall be closed and kept closed between the hou<*s aforesaid, &c., and it ?hall be the duty or every sheriff, policemau. 4c., to tnrorce lb? uhservance ol tho foregoing provisions, Fora violation of this section the Excise Commission ?rs may revoke the liceuse. 8*c. 20 of the samo provides:?Xo inn, tavern or aotel keeper, or other persou, shall sell or give uway Intoxicating liquors or wines on Sundav or upon any dsy on which a uenernl or special election or town inceting shall bo hold, and within one quarter of a milo ironi the place whore such general or special election. Ire., Hhall be bold in any of tbe village**, cities aud towns of the State to any person whatever as a bev ?rnge. ? * * Whoever shall offend against tbe provisions of this Motion shall be guilty ol a misdemeanor, and shall bo punished alter each oOence by a lino of not less than $30 uor more than $200, or by imprisonment not less than live days nor more than filly, or both such lino ?ud imprisonment, at the discretion of tho Court. For two mouths or longer unequal efforts have been mado to enforce those provision* At one time a largo number of liquor sellers havo been arrested In one pre sinct while a very much larger number of persons tn ?he very next precinct, who had rendered themselvos squally liable to arrest wero permitted to sell unmo lested. Those who were arrested, in most instances, have never been called to trial, the giving of $100 bail generally being the concluding act of THS LKUAL PARCK, In which the liquor dealers, the police authorities and police justices are tbe chief actors. Tho principal method of detecting violations of the taw yesterday was tho following :-Offlcers in citizens' iresB entered tho liquor stores and beer saloons they found access to in the different precincts and asked If they could obtain Hquor. If liquor or beer was sold to them they arrested tbe person selling it, and when Ihey housed him safely at the station returned to pursue tbe same schemo in other quar Occasionally an officer entered a hotel bar, where his lhce was familiar, and, (ailing to Induce tho attendant to sell him tho liquor, went off without a prisoner, but net always without a drink. A good many devices were employed to cvndo tho law yostor day. Determined seekers for "cocktails" and other denominations of "eye openers" did not And tbe law, however rigidly enforced, a barrier to tbe enjoyment ?f their favorite boverago. Slrango stories circulated of the distribution of keys by liquor store proprietors to their patrons, of mysterious passages through wind tag alleys, of scaling partitions snd descending to back kasemonts where bacchanals gathered in mysterious tarnivaL In the large hotels "parlor entertainments" ! were the order of the day. You were thirsty and un ?ware of the spasmodic virtue which selected this par- ' ticular Sabbetb, when tbe 6un was so very hot, for Its ' exhibition; you entered the hotel bar and ssked for a 1 drink, and you were directed to a "private" room where you were as liberally supplied as your means permitted. In restaurants tho patrons drank their gin and seltzer out or cups For the Initiated the troublo was very slight, but report lays that the occasional tippler lingered disconsolate on many sn inhospitable street corner. Doubtless the re port was sober trutlj. Many or tho liquor stores and beer saloons put up their little rijion or mistress, notifying all wnom it might concern that "this store will open on Monday morning." But this should not be taken as implying that it was not open theu. Erom tome or these places stolid looking messengers emerged with little boitles of liquor or cans of beer concealed In small markot baskets. As usual the action of the Police Board, in directing this general enforcement of the Sunday law, was tho means of sending thousands Of people to .Stolen Island and ucross ilio Jersey for ries, where lager beer could be had freely an! without cflOrtto evadi the police scrutiny. In each precinct ?bout twenty officers patrolloa in citlieos dress in Search or offenders a;amst the law. In nearly all eases where arrosts wore made, aud tbey numbered Several hundreds, tho officers thomsolvos were tbe per sons to whom the accused sold tno ocer or liquor. These efforts to check the sale of iiquor wore very gen erally canvassed as tho day advanced, and, as hitherto, Mie question or ' beating" the law received much inoro consideration than that or obeying 1L It may be truly Mid, Indeed, that ibis observance of tho Kxcise law, as It now stands, Is regarded by the average New Yorker u a sort ot harmless fiction. The hoiol, big or little, sannol be prevented from serving Its guesta away from the bar, and the small eroggery proprietor, who roust pay a high rent and taxes as wisll as the hotel proprie tor, thinks him.?clf oqually entitled 10 entertain guests snd travellers. If ho can accomplish It in no other wuy be has ingenuity enough to convert his tavern Into ? hotel , i. In the afternoon, when it became cenerally Known Ibul tho police in citizens' dross wero scorching fur liquor and arresting all who sold it to them, a sort of panic seized the Iiquor men, but stiil they tried to sell : ?nd did sell, even in places where arreals had been | made after tho polico hud left Some strangers only lound It difficult to obtain access to the Inner chain- j bers to which tbe liquor had been taken in some places for security. lu almost all cases scuuneis were set to Raich tbe police, and a curious sort of game of hide sud seek was pUycd by tbo police and mo iiquor mon, 1 which lasted until after midnight. The new order afforded an excellent opportunity lor angered patrol men to ??jet square" witii liquor dealer* who were "out of favor" with them. That some such motive instigated the officers in certain precincts would appear from the fact that quite ? number of those arrested on Saturday night wero discharged by the police Justices because lisp peared that tney had been taken out of their places of business a minute or two after miduiglit, tho doors being closed and lastened at the timo and no one but the proprietors on the premises. The provision lu tbe law making It an offvnee even to "expose lor suie" . would seem to have been liberally construed in tavor > of the police by themselves. Men were arrested, taken to ihe station house and their pedigree taken. WI.m tbe accusing ofltcer was ntkod irhe saw them sell liquor 1 be stated that he did not, and yet they were -sent below." To tbe inquiry or a Hrkald reporter la one such instance upon what charge the man arrested was held, the answer w*?, '-on, they can be arrested Just the same lor exposing liquor tor sale ?' If * nua Was lound in bis piaoe or business with no one present ?ad merely attending to some accessary duty the in afcir IMlt Iftwtr I* assume thai he ???*? pOM< liquor for nil," and if so mi tided he could lock hint ny in a cell. Like honest Dogberrys Ike watch "comprehended ail vagrom persons'' and held most of then for examination before their worships the police jastIces this morning. They first assumed that "It was proved already" (hat their prlaonera "were little better than false knarea," and they knew "It would go near to be thought so shortly.'' They will doubtless Bud, too, that many of "the knaves" will be "condemued into everlasting redemption" for their fault. Among the arrests made yesterday were Included the barkeepers of tbe Grand Central Hotel, of the Hotel Bra us wick and two of the bartenders at Gilmore's Gardon. souks axd mrrBcrrB. Although tbo Tenth precinct is a noted beer-drinking locality tbe Teutons who Infest the quarter had at an early hour become aware of the measures taken to enforce the Excise law, and most ot tbe saloons were closod. Some few proprietors, however, reckoning upon the discreetness of their customers, opened to begin business and found themselves in a short time In occupation of the narrow preclnets of a station house cell. During the early portion of the day some hail dozen arrests were made, which spread a whole sonto terror among the liquor-dealing fraternity of the district. lu the Eleventh precinct no very great excitement occurred during tbe day. The saloon owners who opened in tbe morning were speedily taken Into cus tody, and only a few transgressors were found daring enougb to brave detection during the afternoon. A few, however, made covert attempts to dispose ot their stock of liquors, and these were generally compelled to accept tbe escort of a police officer as Cur as the Union Market station house. 'Chat portion ot tbe Thirteenth precinct lying close to the river and down as lar as the Hook Is Inhabited by a population who will not be deprived of tboir Sun day libations If a cunniug manipulation ot side doors can help thorn to a dram; consequently the liquor dealers of that quarter prepared to servo the pub lic at alt hazards. The police, however, were actively engaged in watching all indications of violation of the law, and before long a large number cf barkeepers looked askance at Cap tain Cllncby in front of the station house desk. Many and varied were the protestations of the prisoners, and when they were taken below their discussion of tho infringement of what tbuy regarded as inalienable rights had an exceedingly bitter llavor. In the after noon the number of arrests began to be less frequent, and the consumers of beer, wines and liquors wended their way about with disconsolate faces and words of ungentle reference to the Commissioners. In Captain McCullough's district (the Seventeenth prccinct) a look of ssttled melancholy soemed to invest the numerous beer saloons, and still more gloomy and discontented looked tbe Oerman population, who roamed the streets. In all the stores devoted to the vending of strong liquors and brewed beverages a goneral disposition seemed manifested to "pull down the blinds," and the proprietors, who for the most part lounged outside their doors, cast glanccs of dis gust at the patrolman as he passed their doors. The sounds of revelry with which these haunts of the German laboring classos usually resound were altogether wanting yesterday, for not a single saloon keeper exposed himself to ar rest during tbe whole day. Captain McCullough was discovered by a Hkrald reporter eyeing a long line of silent beer shops, whoso flaunting signs of "Wine and Lager Beer" seemed vaguo and meaningless when asso ciated with their utter abandonment. Tbo Captain was ! looking vainly for the appearance of a aiuner against ! the Excise law. In tbe Eighteenth preclnot station house evidences j of considerable business activity began to be maul- j tested at an early hour. Captain Garland In porson ? patrolled the streets, and was instrumental In taking j Into custody a couple of tho moat astute sggrassora. j Every few minutes an olfloer arrived at the desk with j some Indignant liquor dealer in charge, and toward j evening the capacity of the station house began to be ; severely taxed for room to put tho newcomers. In the I latter part of the afternoon the arrests had figured up > to nineteen, and there was still a prospect of more ap- I pearing. The denizens of the streets lying aloug tbe river side, who usually devote their Sundays to a con sumption of strong watsrs, seemed exceedingly dissat isfied with the aspect of affkirs, and there is reason to bolieve that during yesterday few prayers were uttorsd for the wolUbeing of tbe Kxcise Board and tbe police i in that portion qf the city. In the Thirty-dfih street station house the exclso raid formed the topic of conversation for the police and for all who came that way. Nearly every man of the squad bad assisted In an arrest, and down slain in the cells ware not only keepers of ordinary liquor shop?, ? but proprietors of saloon palaces and men wno stood high In favor with local politicians. The saloons of the precinct bad in many eases been opened as usual, and somu had been ostensibly closed up, but In both in stances the owners or barkeepers had to pay the. price of their temerity, having been taken Into custody. j Twenty-four persons bad been brought before tbe desk , up to tlx o'clock, and although the likelihood of others | appearing seemed. doubtful yet it was questionable j to what straits liquor dealers might be driven by the j thirst of their customers. AU through tbe ward tbe lesson of the day seemed to be a telling one, for the corners were abandoned by the usual loungers and tbe stores upon them seemed quiet and untenanted. Tbe scene of tbe day's groatest excitement, how ever, was the Fifty-ninth street station house, where forty-one cases of excise violation appeared on tho blotter. All through tbe neighborhood people were ; gathered in groups, talking about tbe event of the ' day. The numerous friends of the prisoners seemed j disposed to regard their arrest as an arrant outrage and their detention in tbe station house as positive despotism. Outside the police station were collected quite a crowd, some boaring baskets of refreshments tor incarcerated relatives, others vocilerously clamor- I log lor Interviews with fnends itvide. A police officer stood on duty within, strenuously endeavoring to re- , press tho applicants tor admission to tho prisoners, j and a number of politicians interested in the latter, accompanied by several attorneys, were devising plans of release. Shut from the popular gaze, but visible to , tbe people before the de.-k, were the prisoner* them selves, whose number precluded tbe possibility of single detention in cells. They were crowded to gether in limltk much too small for them, a lew seated, but tbe most of them standing, and ail looking anxiously for some news of release. Tbe warmth of tbe atmoaphero roust have been excessively annoying in tbe narrow preoiucts that bold them, and some dip played signs of real suffering. Aldermen Somers, Hess and Clauson bad boon using their efforts during tbe day to havo the prisoners spared the Ignominy of deten tion in the cells and have them broaght at once to Court OX THBWRST Bint, among the liquor dealers, the Indignatloo manifested | against what was characterized as the arbitrary and unjust action of the Commissioners was intense. Tuts feeling was shared in a very considerable degree by tbe patrons of the saloons, and tbe old talk of'-robbinc a poor man of bis beer" waa Ireely indulged in. As a rule the barkoepers and proprietors submitted quletlr to the arrest and accompanied tbe officers to the polico station with but little more than a verbal remonstrance. Work in tho Ninth precinct was particularly lively, no lees than thirty arrests being made early in the day. This Is acoounted for by tbe fact that special officers had been detailed to visit. In citizens' dress, tbe van- ' ous saloous In tne precinct, and were instructed to I close any place found ope a wbero liquor was exposed, ! even If no actual sale was consummated. One of tbe parties arrested drew a revolver on the officer, and consequently, on being brought to the station house, I was charged not only with violating the Excise law, ! but With lelonious assault as well. Many aubterfuges I wore indulged in to evade tbe law, and tbe numerous , lnstanoes which were noticeable of little children trudg- | lug along with pitchers Oiled with foaming beer were certainly evidences of success. One tning that must have inspired boldness on the part of the dealers was that a largo proportion ol tbose arrested in tbe morning were almost immediately dis charged on being orougnt before tbe police magistrates or held on nominal bail Toward Evening the station houkes wore overrun with friends and relatives ol the men suffering from their connection with tbe traffic. In must instances tbe visitors brought either rood or clothing, but all of these things had to pass through the bauds of tbe doorkeeper, the officials in charge invariably refusing any communication witb the prisoners. The scone in some of tbe station bouses was certainly a peculiar onei The close-cropped dealer oat of lightning gin, whoee custom wan derived' front the laborer and 'longshore man, was for the moment oa an equality With tho dia mond studded julep artist of mm uMomlM kol*L Anxious wive* atul mothers la the outer room pleaded in nio for a word with those in whom their interest waacontr?>d, and during it all fresh victims were ra|?- { Idly being brought In, only after tho usual questions were asked to hear their doom pronounced, in tho quaint phraseology of the station house, "Take him i down." In the Twentieth precinct another instance of . resistance occurred. Tho officer entered a laser , beer saloon, but wua liuraixJ lately confronted by ?; the hale and hearty spouse of the proprietor. She struck out, knocking off the officer's cap, and then the husband drew hi> pistol and threatened to shoot if the arrest was Instated upon, both man and wife wero Anally brought to the station house, whoro the double charge of assault and violating tho Excise law was made. Those arrested In the Twenty secoud precinct wero not as fortunate as their fellow sufferer* in the downtown districts, an no-provision was made lor their being brought to court in the even ing, and they were, consequently, compelled to remain Uicarceratod until this morning. USWAXRAKTABUI ACTIO*. It scams, however, as though in their proposed severe enforcement of tho Excise law, the Commis sioners would require, in some cases, men to look alter those to whom Is deputed the task of watchicg and ar resting delinquent liquor dealers. Yesterday, Mr. Julius Gribcl, a very respectable German, who keeps a lager beer saloon and garden at No. 588 Sixtl^avonue, was arrested, together with bis wife, for an alleged vio lation of the Sunday liquor law, under peculiarly pro voking circumstances. His saloon was not only shut, but a placard was placed In the window bearing the announcement?"Positively closed for to-day." Upon his return from the barber's he heard a great hubbub lu the basement kitchen of his house, whore the table was alreaay laid for the lamlly dinner. Upon going down, he found bis wife resisting an officer, who wus trylne to arrest her, and who. In so doiug, had partially torn her olothes from her back. The hunband, upon inquiring the reason of this extraordi nary proceeding, was Informed that he, too, was undor arrest for violation of the Sunday law. He did not ob ject to go with the officer, tearing violence on his part, but asked him to allow his wife timo to replace her torn dress and cover her head before walking through the streets with a policeman. The request was refused. The husband and wllo wore then marched by this superservtceable patrolman, by naino Samuel English, to the Twenty-ninth procinct station house and lockod up. Mr. Gribel at once sent to the Judgo ot the Wash ington Place Police Court, who at onoe opened bis court, and upon hearing tbe evidence aud circum stances at onco discharged Mr. Gribel and his wife. Tho former asserts that his placo .was closed from twelve o'clock Saturday night; that positively not ' a drop of liquor was sold In his house, and | that the officer arrested him and his wife because, as the latter said, he had seen people going in at their basement door. Tbe troatment of tbe wife is, under any circumstances, utterly outrageous, and Mr. Gribe1 will to-day prefer chargos against this oversealous patrolman, who, he alleges, was, at tho time of making tho arrest, considerably under the Influence of liquor. TIIK HORNING POUCS COURT HCXXK8. The sudden incroaae of prisoners brought before the magistrates at the police courts yestorday forenoon caused considerable surprise, but wben it was ascer tained that the fact was owing to a determined raid by the police on all barrooms or drinkiug saloons lound open, the oourts were soon crowded by curious people. Long after tho watch returns were disposed of and a few cases of petit larceuy had been adjudicated, the magistrates lound themselves kept busy with cases in which violation of the Excise iaw, in selling liquor on 6unday, was charged. In nearly every court the police Justices expressed themselves as disgusted at the man ner in which the arrests had been made, and in many Instances released the prisoners because tbe officers either could not furnish tbe necessary evidence or had made their arrests undor circumstances that showed that they had trapped their victims unfairly, or that tho alleged violation of tho law was very doubtful. Judge Duffy, who presides at present at the Washington Place Court, decided to reopen his tribunal at eight P. M. for tho purpose of considering any excise arrest that might be made during tho alter soon. lie stated that be took this action as he be lieved that it was simple Justice to the uccused to give them an opportunity to offer ball If probable guilt ex isted or to be discharged if shown to be innocent of the chargo. To Judge Dulfy's course many men under ar rest escaped detention over night In the station house colls. TBI ARRKST8.

ON THE BATTEBY. CONDITION or TUB COMCKETC WAXZ,?HOW 1010 OF THIS "SOT8" AMI'S* THEMSELVES. To residents of the lowor portion of New York Um Battery I'ark la a breathing place of bo llttln conse quence. The advantages for rest and recreation U ! affords In the summer time are manifold, and to provs that they aro very generally enjoyed one needs only t? | stroll down In that direction any line afternoon or ! evening. As the sun doclines toward the western hori zon a breeze may always lie telt there coming lresh from Its passage over tho waers of tho bay. Tho turf Is now bright green, ami the shade, little as It Is, very grateful. Unfortunately the white concrete at tracts the ann's rays too ranch at noon, producing at times au Intolerable glara. At night, however, the broad walks are Oiled with long linos of sauntering couples, squads of boys, rows of girls, and numerous family groups of infinite variety. It Is to be regrotted, too, that beside thi weary toilers resting alter the labors of the dsy are found gangs of youthful Idlers who never toil, and who will not suffer those who do to enjoy without molestation tbe recreation ; winch Is there to be found. Home of the overgrown : and lll-couduoled boys who Infest the llattery Parle ; with tbeir presence in the evening have exceedingly | strange and remarkably offensive ways or passing the time. Frequent complaint* are heard of their conduct, winch the other habitues of th? place j would allow their parents or guardians, i If they ever had any. to correct, wero they only cou j siderate enough to avoid Intruding upon all who chance their way. But tbeir profano language la said to be too I loud, ami tho pet names they call each other grate on the ears of Rome over latitidlous people. Then they have a democratic way or joutline unprotected girls, not ol their set, whoso member* have generally enough j self-relmnoe to protect themselves. Strangers are made particularly the object ol their assaults. A gen | tleman, who happened to be on the Battery s few nights ago. reports the remarks he beard made by a gang of those young roughs while two neatly dressed snd modestly behaved working girls passed along, and these observations were not such as tbe polico should ] tolerate. If these youths wero suppressed the Battery would become a pleasanter resort of an evening. There is another matter calling for immediate atten tion at the llattery, and that Is tne concrete walk along ' tbe line of the Battery wall. Tho substratum of earth : under the concrete slabs forming the walk has sunk at different points and the concrete has consequently been thrown ont of position, causing holes iu many I places that endanger the limbs of podestrlsns and hold tbe rain water ror several days alter a heavy shower. ; Tho concrete itself is Irayed and worn in mauy places, | and it daily becoming worse. II the damage, Iron ! whatever canse in proceeds, la permitted to oontinui the whole walk along the side of the Battery facing th? , sea must be taken up In a short time, or else it will I present a very shaboy appearance "in this Centennial | year." lu condition, as It la, detract* In no slight i measure from the otherwise very pleasing general ap pearance of tbe Battery Park.
