Keep Alien Enemies
Busy Says Gregory
Better They Should Have Work Than
Be Idle, Thinks Attorney General
Department Of Labor Will Help
United States Attorney General
Gregory, In a letter to U. S. Marsh.M
Smlddy, Instructs that German alin
enemies be kept employed as much as
possible. He holds that a idle man
la more dangerous than one busily
occupied. The letter says:
"For reasons of both expediency
and justice, it is highly advisable that
the government should not impose
idleness xipon any alien enemy not
Interned or arrested. A man who
has been deprived of his employment
under the alien enemy regulations
will often have great difficult in find
ing other employment. He is potent
ially more dangerous to the Nation
while In idleness than while at work.
The country's industries need the
work of all able-bodied men. The
governmeat does not desire to pro
duce unnecessary hardships.
"For these reasons, it is desirable
that any alien enemy who Is not
placed under arrest but is displayed
from his employment by action un-
der the presidential regulation shall
whenever he needs such assistance,
be assisted in finding of other em
ployment; that Information as to th
place of his new employment be oh
tained In all cases, so that his where
abouts and activities can be traced
and, that, except where public safety
and emergency demand other wise, he
be not displaced from an existing
place of employment until there is
reasonable assurance of his finding
"The department of labor has ex
pressed its willingness to assist by
means of its employment agencies in
finding employment for all worthy
aliens displaced by the regulations,
and, in all such cases, you are author
ized and instructed to bring the situ
ation to the attention of the local em
ployment agencies of the department
of labor and to cooperate with such
agencies, with a view to carrying out
the principles and policies herein set

fendant in the ease of Manuel Poet he
llo vs. Thomas Brown, in assumpsit,
in Ihe circuit court. F. L. Weaver,

plaintiff. The plaintiff claimed to have
paid Brown $750 for a certain land,

The loss of the material was duo to
one of the scows catching fire from
the wetting of lime which was also on
