Three Washington Times report- ers, sentenced to 45 days for con- tempt of court when they refused to betray confidences accorded them during a recent liquor ex- pose, today voluntarily went buck to jail after four days of Imbeds corpus freedom. The return to prison was large- ly a legal move, adopted by coun- sel for tho reporters in order to clear the field of all issues except the appeal on (lie contempt charge itself. The three newspapermen, Gor- man llendricks, John Kevin and Linton Burkett, were sentenced when they refused to accede to the demand of the grand jury ami the United States District attorney to place themselves in the position of prosecuting witnesses against spcakcanios they had investi- gated. "I desire to give said Brookhart, "that I shall discuss tho enforcement of the-prohibition law in-general tnd Wall Street booze parties in particular when -I get recognition tomorrow." This' announcement was drawn by the statement of Senator Gil- lett, of Massachusetts, who, in an effort to minimize the action of Senator Bingham, of Connecticut, in taking a lobbyist into the secret sessions of the finance committee, declared he had seen members of the house transacting business on the floor while drunk. The Senate gasped at Gillctt's statement. But it shivered at Brookhart's announcement. Threats of exposing ..'senatorial drinking have been made before, but never carried but. But Brookhart is a boric dry and the senate is not suro of-what he may say. And there was considerable apprehension among some senators. "When I was in the other branch of congress, I" frequently saw 'mem- bers transacting business' under the influence of said Gil- lett to a startled senate and crowr- ed galleries. "But I did not think it was necessary to adopt a rseolu- tion of condemnation."

Later Cassi- dy's home was rallied and over 200 bottles of fancy liquor seized.
