War on Tobacco Laid to the
W. C. T. U.
Kev?? fork, Aug. 4.-After a two
months' inquiry conducted in this
city, Chicago, San Francisco and else
where to determine whether ther
was a concerted campaign to bar tn
use of tobacco, now that the liquor
has gone by the board, the Associa
tion Opposed to National Prohibition
issued a statement here to-day charg
ing that the Woman's Christian Tem
perance Union was backing a move
ment to have anti-nicotine laws en
acted in every state in the union.
The W. C. T. U. will celebrate it;
fiftieth anniversary, five years hence
and that organization is hopeful of
having Congress submit a constitu
tional amendment before March 20
1924, its semi-centennial, forbidding
the cultivation, sale, use or export of
the weed for smoking or chewing pur
poses, the statement charged.
The $1,000,000 "drive" begun last
March by the white ribboners, it is
alleged, has for its object the crush
ing,of the demon nicotine, and to this
end anti-prohibitionists say $300,000
will be expended ostensibly on "child
welfare," "health and morality," "ed
ucation and information" and other,
propaganda methods by means of the
churches and public schools.
Total Casualties in Rioting 339.
Chicago, Aug. 4.-After the calm
est night in the "black belt" for more
than a week, the work was begun to
day of selecting a grand jury before
which will come the cases of white
men and negroes who are accused of
participation in the race riots which
caused the death of twenty negroes
and thirteen whites, and the injury of
The coroner has fixed che number
of dead at 33 and the city health com
missioner has found that 306 people
injured in the riots were treated at
hospitals. He expressed the opinion
however, that perhaps 400 or more
who were injured in the riots never
reported at the hospitals and conse
quently the total number of injured
will never be known officially.
Soldiers on Duty.
The state troops had little to do
.during the night in the riot zone, but
much excitement was caused early to
day by persistent reports telephoned
into headquarters of the second regi
ment, that a* crowd of 500 men was
gathering at South Ashland avenue
and West Fifty-Ninth street. When
a company of troops reached the
scene, the crowd has vanished and
the soldiers returned to headquarters.
Several thousand negroes who ex
pected to return to work in the stock
yards to-day after nearly a week's
absence on<,account of the riots, must
wait until the unrest caused by the
disturbances in the district has sub
sided. After announcing that the ne
groes would return to work to-day,
superintendents of all the large pack
ing plants decided that it would be
prudent to hold them at their homes
for an indefinite period.
