New York Legislative Commutes Indi- oates Line of Attack—Shows Party Is Against Militia. Albany, N. Y., Jan. 2S.—Counsel for the assembly judiciary committee in- mvestlgatlr S j charges of disloyalt} apilnst the five suspended Socialist nwrinhlymen indicated at their t tiie line of its attack. After reading into the records a clause from the national constitution of the Socialist party providing ' for expulsion from the party of members voting to appropriate funds for military or. naval purposes. John B Stanchfleld, committee attorney, referred to the oaths of office taken by the five assemblymen and then read from the New»York state constitution an article specifying that- it shall be the duty of the Ipeislature to provide funds for maintenance of the militia Proponents of "the dictatorship' of the proletariat" hold that the first step must be the seizure of the government by any means possible and taking over of industry by force, according to a pamphlet read at the trial. • The pamphlet, published by the Jewish Socialist federation of New York was translated from the Hebrew by Charles M. Rohlnton, a department of pustlce operative serving the, joint legislative committee Investigating radicalism, who was recalled to the stand . Purporting to give views of both proponents and opponents, the pamphlet asserted the former held preparation must be mnda'for "revolution" and "class dictatorship." Upon the seizure of the Industries, they would be run by workingmen's Soviets according to the program.

Up to that time the sale or transportation of liquor must he proved in order to convict the hoot- lesprev or "cheater." After thnt hour, according to A. V. Dalrymple. chief prohibition ollk'er for this district, the mere posst'ssinn oC liq-.ioi- outside of n household or plnce covered by n government permit will he a violation of the law. "We have made some arrests for niuisporting liquor on the hip," said Mr. Dalrympie. "After February 1, possession of it there will be sufficient to .set'a mnn into trouble."

It was the annual county fair, and I had.watched them, all go by In their shining buggies and autos—sweethearts, yonng married couples, and families, till it seemed that poor Amelia Bump was the only solitary person in the village. It had been a perfect morning, and now I felt a touch of savage satisfaction that the rain would spoil their pleasure, until I remembered that a blizzard may seem a May day if only you are with someone you love. Oh! I was in tune with the weather, all right. And then my ears caught the roaring hum of an airplane, nearer, nearer, unbelievably near! I raced to the door in time to see something like a giant wounded bird swooping down on the big meadow below the house. Crash! Then my curiosity carried me on fly- Ing feet to the spot, where a figure resembling an armored knight in goggles picked himself up with a dazed look, and bent over another prostrate form. After a hasty examination he turned to me, as I stared, open-mouthed. "Tough luck! Came through the war without a smash, and now n broken leg, and perhaps worse, for this little testing trip. Accident to engine, and we couldn't make a right landing. Where's a doctor?" Believe me, I had little time to waste sympathizing with myself the rest of the day. He was badly hurt, and the doctor and nurse settled him In my little sunny guest room, so long without a guest. ' The holidays flew on wings. I had an. Interest In life, and the neighbors really seemed to Include me In their Interest In him. But the blow had to fall. The day that he was able to be helped out on the piazza, he -turned serious face to me. "Here 1 am, nearly well enough to leave, and have never asked your name, yet It seems-that 1 must have known, it always, we have grown to be such friends." "dh, no," I gulped, "you couldn't juess It In a lifetime. It's Bump!" ami.I..fairly glared at him as I braced myself to meet that amused 'smile. But it seemed to make absolutely no Impression on him, for tie went on— "And your first name?" :Try, all you Rosalies and Marjories, to share my feelings as I blurted out, "Oh, it matches the other—just Amelia, and how I hate It!" He gave me such a queer look of surprise. "Hate Amelia?" he repeated, as if not sure of hearing me aright. "I love it best of all the names In the English language/for it was my mother's. Since she died 1 , I've been the loneliest fellow alive." Lonely! And he a handsome hero. There were two of us then, it seemed. Well, all this happened weeks ago, and today as I write, across the table sits my aviator, the man of the house. I refuse to recognize n grammar rule j. or algebra sign when I meet them, for unloved and unwanted Amelia Bump has made her exit forever, and Mrs. Lieut. Victor Fairfax has come into, her own.
