ENACTMENT REPEALED. FEDERAL AUTHORITY SUBSTITUTED. . j £*J .-ijK. (Received 9.5 a.m.) I NEW YORK, May 4. The New York State Assembly passed a Bill repealing the State Prohibition Enforcement Law, by 76 votes to 71. The repealed measure provided more strict penalties than the Federal Volstead Law, broad powers being vested in the civic police, such as search and arrest without warrant. The new situation means that prohibition enforcement in New York State will be left largely to the Federal authorities. —A. and N.Z.
