Dry Leaders Falter in
Urging War-Time Action
WASHINGTON'. March 2. Frohibi
tion leaders to-night still were unde
cided whether to urge action before
adjournment of Congress on pending
legislation for onforcement of war- ;
time prohibition. which becomes ef
fective July I. They said no deci3ion
would be made until they could con- '
far to-morrow with Congressional
leaders on the general legislative situ?
ation.
Some piohibition advocatcs insist >
that no additional legisiation is neces
sary to make war-time prohibition
effectivc, but many members of Con?
gress say such legislation is necessary
because the original act does not del
egate authority to any government
agency to enforce it.
In discussing the matter to-day,.
some prohibition leaders said that
sirice I'resident Wilson undoubtedly
would call an extra session of Con?
gress before July l it might be that
no effort would be mado to have tho
present Congress act.

Latin-Americaii League
Against U. S. Revealed
Senators Told Argentineand Mexican Agitators Are
Leaders in Movement Rejected by Guatemala;
German Propaganda Seen; Strikes Fail After
Mexican Minister Dics and Leaders ^nit Nation
By Carter Field
v"i- ) nrlc Tribune
H'aahincton Bureau
WASHINGTON, March 2. A "Latin
; American League of Nations" has been
proposed In negotiations which have
. been going on sinco Christmas and
which havo reached such a stage tnat
certain influentiai Mexicans and rcpre
sentaiives of the Argentine Republic
have laid tho proposals before the gov
. ornments oi* many, if nol all, Latin
American states.
The objects of the league, ns statod
in arguments by.- its proponcnts, are in
: line with those of the world league
. President, Wilson has becn advocatlng,
l with the additional idca of protecting
j all of T.atin America against the
I United States.
Convinced thal behind the Latin
: American league irlea is clever German
propaganda, which wishes to alienate
'? the United States from the American
countries to the south, so that Ger
many will find the commercial recon
quesl of that part, of the world easier
; when the trade war begins, American
| citi'/.ens who recently returned from
' Central and South America have laid
their discoveries before the members
of the Senate Foreign Relations Com?
mittee.
Nicarsguan Situation Exploited
The Argentine and Mcxiean repub?
lics, it was reported to Senators, had
particularly high hopes of Winning
speedy acceptanqe of their plans in
Central America because of the fear of
the United States inspired in states
still independent hy American air-tight
control of Nicaragua, the constant
presence of American marines at Ma
nagua, the eapital of Nicaragua. and
America's dictation in the elections
there.
This fear. rcturning Americans de
clare, was further encouraged by pro?
poncnts of the Latin-Americnn league
plan by constant references to the re
fusal of the United States to abide by
the decision of the Central American
court when it. held that the 1'nited
States had no right to negotiate the
Nicaraguan treaty, on the ground that
this int'ringed upon the rights of Costa
Rica with reference to the Nicaraguan
canal route, nnd of Salvador with ref?
erence to l!ie naval base granted the
United States by the treaty of Fonseca
Bay.
Clever Propaganda Used
The I'act that the United States took
a lirra stand against the continuance
of the Central American court not
long after this decision is being con
ttantly alluded to, it is declared. Al
thougii the majority of the people in
such states as Guatemala, for instancc,
the strongest and most independent of
the Central American states, are said
to be strongly pro-American, their
fears and apprchensions are being
played on by advocates of the league
plan with a very clever propaganda,
with a view to forcing the government
to accept the Latin-American league
plan.
Because Guatemala has a strongly
centralized government, however, Sen?
ators were told. and because the Presi?
dent of that country, Manuel Estrada
Cabrera, believes the welfare not only
of his country, but of Latin America
generally, is tied up with tiie United
States, this propaganda, which followed
on the heels of his flat refusal to
have anything to do with the proposed
Latin-America league, did not succeed.
Incidentaily, the Senators were told.
the people of Guatemala are practically
a unit behind President Cabrera.
The proponcnts of the league rc
sorted to characteristic (Inrann propa?
ganda methoda, according to nccounts
which have reached Senators.
Early in Februnry a general strike
was planned all through Guatemala. It j
was intended to tle up nil the rail
roads, the United Frult Company
plnntations u-pd shipping atationa, and
reconstruction (following the carth
quakcl work in the capital.
About this time the Mexican Min?
ister, Bcrmudez de Castro, was sud
denly stricken with influenza. He died
almost immediately. Some 0f lhe
Americans say that his death had a
crippling effect on the plans of the
proponents of the |eaguc. Some 0f
[?the leaders of the strike. which ac
tually was called. were hustled out
. of the. comit.v. R jfl wliispcrcd ir.
Central America that they were bribed.
Al any rate, most of thcm went over
into Honduras, which is said now to
be a hotbed of anarchistic and Bol
| shevik agitators, many of them either
now or formerly German aecnts.
President Cabrera, who is said by the
Americans informing Senators of this
situation to be a very strong type of
man one of them compared him to
Clemenceau is pictured by these ac
counts as being a bulwark against Bol
Uhevism both to thc south and to the
north of his own country.
Strikes in Honduras
From what has heen reported to Sen?
ators from other sources about condi
tions elsewhere in Mexico, they are
prepared to believe almost anythinp
about conditions along; its southern
frontier. which 1.order- on Guatemala.
Thc returning Ajnericans report that
the same sorl of strikes planned for
Guatemala, after the government. of
that country refused to have anything
to do with the Latin-American league,
broke out almost at once in Teguci
galpa, the capital of Honduras.
Senators questioned their informants
searchingly with a view to devetoping
the accuracy of their conviction that
German propaganda is behind the
movement for the Latin-American
league. lt was pointed out to the Sen?
ators that the German interests had
united in Guatemala for the purpose
of preventing, if possible, the seizure
of German property through the same
sort of alien property custodian plan
as adopted by the United States and
certain Latin-American countries. The
decree putting this conliscation into
effect had nol been issued when thc
agitation began. On February \x. how?
ever, scarcely two week- ago, President
Cabrera issued this decree, so that the
Germans failed even in this effort,
