PITTSnt'RGir, Feb. S. The Federal

expectedly brought Into the I'nlted States

Issued against their clients.
Tho petition was strenuously opposed1
by United States District Attorney

In order that the Grand Jury inquiry,
scheduled to start Thursday or Friday,
may go on.
Tho defendant associations are: The
United States , Brewery Association,
Pennsylvania Browery Association,
Brewers' Association of Western Penn
sylvania. Westmoreland County Brewers'
Association and tho Fayette County
Mr. Shaw indicated at tho outset that
the tight would-be made against tlio
sweeping character of the proposed In
quiry. In support of this bo indicated In
tho brewery petition tho language of
United States District Attorney Humes In
one of tho subpoenas that directed to an
officer of tho Pennsylvania Brewers' As

In court of all the books and records of

minutes of meetings and records of ex
penditures and receipts during 1911, 1312,

The other subpoenas were allko in this

Mr. Shaw chanted that such subpoenas
wero without warrant In law, and asked
that they be quashed.
Specifying, ho put his objections under
First. That the sweeping character of
the information, demanded was in express
violation of the constitution of the Unit
ed States, which protected citizens front
Second. That tho subpoenas are do-"
fectlve in tha,t there was no order of
Court on rccoid authorizing the action.
Third. That the subpoenas ulto aro de
fect he in that they do not specify who
those subpoenaed are to testify against.
Indicating the possible attitude of the
Court, Judge Orr, when United States
District Attorney Humes uroto to reply
to Attorney Shaw, asked:
"Is there any authorization for such a
Mr. Humes, replying, bald that, in tho
first place, it was not a dragnet. "Each
subpoena, with the testimony the witness

After furthar argument over the sweep
