HOW BOYD'S BOX ORDER IS TO BE CARRIED OUT Mayor Boyd's order that doors be removed from boxes in restaurants aad aeloons ashore liquor is served to tower than four persons of opposite Sexes la regarded by politicians aa a subterfuge to detract attention from the Pratt box ordinance. The Pratt ordinance calla for the absolute abolition of boxes ln saloons, Is exactly what was demanded by the republican platform upon which May or Boyd waa elected; and the order Of Mayor Boyd when analysed is found to merely call for tha removal Of doors, not curtains, from boxes where liquor is sold to fewer than four persons. It is surmised that the liquor inter ests of tho city dictated the new Boyd order. The order gives their patrons privacy In the aame old way. An outsider would be no more witling to intrude on the privacy of a drink ing party by opening a closed curtain than he would by opening a cloaed doqr. When asked aa to how he hoped to enforce tha bow order Mayor Boyd ■aid today: •T antici...
