Argued October 10, 1932

Decided December 5, 1932

2. Under § 25 of the National Prohibition Act and the provisions of the Act of June 15, 1917 (Espionage Act), to which that section refers, a warrant to search for intoxicating liquor becomes void at the expiration of ten days from the date of its issuance, and cannot then be revived by the magistrate merely by redating and reissuing it solely on the basis of the affidavit upon which it was issued originally. Pp. 287 U. S. 210 et seq.

3. The issue of a new warrant is a new proceeding, and must be supported by proof that probable cause then exists. P. 287 U. S. 211.

54 F.2d 1083 reversed.
