Greek met Greek in the police boardroom yesterday, but what happned none of the commissioners could tell. The case before the members was that of two saloon men, at 325 West Fifth street, being charged with giving intoxicants to an infant in arms and a child of 4 years. There were two interpreters and two lawyers. After letting the whole lot wrangle for almost twenty minutes the commissioners decided that it would be utterly impossible to get the names of the witnesses, much less to decide whether it was the saloon or an invoiced grocery that supplied the wine that made the little children drunk.
