PROVIDENCE, R.

Outside of Providence, saloonkeepers continued to sei. asslong as their supply lasted, but in this city the police commission, at 9 p. m., notified every dealer to stop the sale of anything stronger than one-half of one per cent. The commission's order stated that although the decree had" been entered the police would not allow the four per cent to go on sale until after the case had been heard in the court of appeals in Boston. Stay of Action Kefused. Following the entering of the decree Judge Brown refused to grant a supersedeas, which would have acted as a stay to the enforcement of the order putting the injunction Into effect. United States District Attorney Harvey A. Baker announced that he would take an appeal to the United States Court of Appeals in Boston next Tuesday. Before an appeal from Judge Brown's decision can be heard by the circuit court in Boston it is probable that the whole question of the constitutionality of the war prohibition act will have been argued before the supreme court in Washington. A hearing on the constitutional question raised by a recent decision of a federal Judge in Kentucky is set down for next Thursday. . 1 EMPLOYES KEPT AWAY FROM MINES them taking a part in the program given during the day.
