Upon appeal of Congressman Samuel Dikkstein, 105 East Side peddlers were released when arraigned at the Essex Street Court House before Magistrate Cobb for doing business on Sunday. Congressman Dickstein pointed out that the alleged offenders observed Friday as the day of mourning for President Harding, that some of them did no business on Saturday, and that the majority of them were open only until 10 o’clock Sunday morning, until which hour, he contended, it was permissible to sell food stuffs.
