Frank S. Hogan, District Attorney (Whitman Knapp, Charles W. Manning and William Hoppen of counsel), for respondent.

Judgment affirmed. Upon this appeal the following question was presented and necessarily passed upon: The appellants contended that the receipt in evidence of wire tapped telephone calls was illegal because of section 605 of the Federal Communications Act of 1934 (U. S. Code, tit. 47, § 605). This court held to the contrary. (See Matter of Harlem Check Cashing Corp. v. Bell, 296 N.Y. 15.) No opinion.
