ROBERT J. HALLE AND HIS FIGHT
FOR PERSONAL LIBERTY.
In nil America there Is no ninn who
has nindo a harder or better fight for
tho cnuso of porsonul liberty than
Kobart J. Halle In hl.s bright nnd In
lluentlal newspaper tho Champion of
Fair Play. Ills fight against prohibi
tion and sumptuary Intolerance has
been consistent, nblo nnd brave,
tho present time it looks as if
cause wore lost.
But tho poots lines,
"Freedom's bnttlo onco begun
Though often lost is over won."
may lnsplro him with now hope.
Tho following cablegram to tho
Chicago Dally News from Its manag
ing editor, Charles H. Dennis, pub
lished on January 28, Is significant
to say tho least:
Paris, France, Jan. 28. People in
America are snylng that whon tho
mon of tho nation's overseas army re
turn to their homos and tho activities
of civil life thoy will provo determining
factors In tho great affairs of govern
ment and social progress. SInco this
opinion is commonly hold It should in
terest thoBo at liome to know that n
consldorablo fooling of resentment
prevails In their army In Europe, be
cause tho question of national prohlb!
Hon was raised and decided by const!'
tutlonal amendment during tho nb
sonso of 2,000,000 fighting Americans.
The feeling Is duo primarily not to
tho decision itself, but to tho fact that
It was reached after tho mon into
whoso hands tho country's affairs must
presently come, bad been sont out of
tho country to fight for Its liberties.
Throughout the army tho opinion is
expressed that somo consideration for
tho views of tho absent would linvo
been entirely fitting.
I prosont this striking fact merely
as an Indication of tho general stato
of mind of tho American army. Thero
Is a settled dotorminntlon on its pnrt
to bo counted in the ranks of citizen
ship on overy Important question that
comes boforo tho people What this
determination forecasts it should not
be difficult for politicians to grasp.

REINBERG HITS BACK
President Peter Uoinborg of tho

answer to tho proposal of tho mnlor
Ity of tho county bonrd that tho con
troversy between them ns to tho ma
jority's right to make new rules be
submitted to three judges for n final
decision. President Kolnberg has a
counter proposition for asking the
Chicago Bureau of Public Efficiency
to net as arbiter. In his formal pro
posal President Ilelnberg says:
"Proper adjustment demands either
u tedious litigation through the courts
lusting for years or a roforenco of tho
cntlro controversy' to nn Impartial
civic body for recommendation ns to
what is ncccssnry to most expeditious
ly adjust the disputes In tho Intorosts
of tho tnxpayors and tho district.
That tho second end mny bo gnlncd,
I recommend that tho Chicago bureau

its recommendations for tho solution
thoreof which will bo most beneficial

HOW ABOUT "LIBERTY FUEL?"
Automoblllst.s are In a state of
mind over the coulllctlng stories cur
rent about tho new "Liberty fuel" of
the wnr department. According to the
fuel administration the mixture was
found to contain about Go per cent of
benzol. Inasmuch ns the supply of
benzol Is limited the amount of Lib
erty fuel that could be produced would
be only about 12 per cent of the pres
ent output of gasoline. Moreover, the
fuel when tested left n gummy residue,
which would plug up caiburetors, and
revealed many other drawbacks.
On the other bund, the war depart
ment says that the fuel administration
must have tested one of the 28 "fake"
mixtures tlxed up during the war to
fool German spies.
According to the war department,
the cost of manufacture Is -10 per cent
lower than that of making gasoline.
It Is described as unities, tasteless,
and without gaslllcatlou scent. Its
products of combustion are cooler than gasoline. It Is noncorroslve. It does
not give nut soot or carbon, nnd starts the engine more readily thnn gasoline.
The quality and specific gravity arc changeable at will, and the substitute
shows no III effect on tho lubricating nil. It will Ignite only from spark or
llame. No special apparatus Is required cither in the engluo or carbureter or
In the manufacture of the fuel.
MaJ. O. II. Zimmerman of (ho war department, one of tho Inventors of
tho Liberty fuel, hopes to have the lid removed so that nn authoritative state
ment can bo made.
