Prohibition Enforcement Laws
Will be Made More
Washington, May 21.-Sahara will
oe a glistening lake compared to the
United States, if the plans of the pro
hibitionists meet with the approval of
The "dry" forces, unsatisfied with
the effects of the Volstead law, are
mapping out a vigorous campaign to
be conducted in the present congress
in an effort to stop up the leaks in
the dry law dike. *
Prohibitionists are certain that the
present congress is just as "dry" as
was the last and they are hopeful
that their campaign will meet with
success, although they realize that
with elections two years distant, pres
sure can not be easily applied to this
congress as to the last.
The first step in the campaign to
put the lid on intoxicants has been
taken by Representative Volstead in
introducing a bill to prevent the use
of beer and wine as medicines. Only
the future, can determine the for
tunes of this bill, but the."drys" are
watching its course with great eager
ness to determine the sentiment of
the present congress.
Propose Drastic Measures. ?
Other planks in the "dry" platform
which will be presented to congress,
are set forth as follows:
1. Congress shall cut off impor
tations of liquors for at least five
2. The further manufacture of
whiskey shall be prohibited until the
present stock is down to a very small
3. The present stock of liquors
shall be concentrated by giving the
commissioner power to move liquors
when such action will conduce the
enforcement of the prohibition law.
4. The total prohibitive tax shall
be assessed against offenders for each
5. Only alcohol, not liquors or i
wines, shall be allowed to be used as !
a base for "medicines."
6. Alcohol to be used for legiti i
mate purposes, such as the manufac- !
ture of toilet commodities, shall be i
denatured at the place of original
7. The employees of the enforce
ment organization shall be placed un
der civil service.
8. If the prohibition enforcement
department is transferred to the de
partment of justice, careful distinc
tion shall be made between those
parts of the law which involve crimi
nal investigations and prosecution
and such sections as provide for the
^prohibitive tax, the power to estab
lish chemical standards, etc., which
features shall be left to the control;
of the Commissioner of Internal Rev
9. United States Commissioners
shall:be given power to try misde-j
meanor offenses against the prohibi
If these laws fail to check the en- J
ierprise of thirsty and resourceful I
Americans, then the "drys" have a
few more up their sleeves. They are
in earnest about this prohibition bus-1
iness, even if thc thirsty are not.
Powerful Wireless Plant on
Portland, Ore., May 21-With
the completion of the Federal Tele
graph Company's new plant at Hills- j
boro, Ore., in June, the second high- '
est powered wireless station on the
Pacific coast will be put into opera
tion, capable of transmitting across
the Pacific ocean.
This station wiH be used primarily
for coastal business, handling com- j
merdai messages in competition with
the older wire companies.
An interesting feature of the op-j
?eration of the new plant will be the
-direct connection of land wires with
the wireless sent, without a break in :
the circuit. Messages will be sent by
wire from the company's office in.
Portland to the station at Hillsboro,
20 miles distant,-and the instruments
there will be so arranged that they
will automatically transfer the sig
nals to the wireless. Messages for de
livery in Portland will be received on
the roof or the building housing the
company's office, thereby making the
presence of a telegraph operation at
the station itself unnecessary.
The station will be capable of han
dling eight messages simultaneously,
four coming and four going, accord
ing to the company's officials.
The company's pla" ""at San Diego,
Cia., which was buih for the navy
during the war, is the largest on the
Pacific coast, being rated at 300
The Hillsboro station will be of
130 kilowatts, with a tower 625 feet
in height. The aerial is of umbrella
type and will cover 275 acres.

Ambassador Harvey is Scored
Washington, May 21.-Ambassa
dor Harvey^was made the object of
a bitter personal attack in the House
today because of his speech before
the Pilgrim's Society in London
Representative Stevenson, Demo
crat, of South Carolina, said that he
wanted the House "to know the kind
of gentleman who is fixing our for
Mr. Stevenson said that "in view
af the recent deliverance of our am
bassador to England, which appears
to be fixing, apparently, the foreign
policy of this government," he de
sired to call the attention of the
House to a speech delivered by Col.
Harvey before the St. Andrew's So
ciety of Charleston, S. C., in 1906.
He quoted Col. Harvey as having
boasi':d that his ancestors had re
fused :o fight the South during the
civil war, and that at least one of his
relatives had gone to jail rather than
hire a substitute in the Union army.
"That is the gentleman who today
is fixing the foreign policy of this
government to his ideas, a gentleman
who comes to a South Carolina au
dience and attempts to ingratiate him
self," said Mr. Stevenson.
"I take it for granted that this dis
tinguished gentleman, when he ap
proaches the seats of the mighty,
when he comes into the presence of
the crown of England, will make him
self fraternally at heart with the
Englishmen by saying that the people
over in Vermont never popped a cap
at the British in the days of Lexing
ton and Bunker Hill, or that nobody
could make them hire a substitute
and tbat therefore they laid down or
did nothing or sympathized with the
British during that contest. That is
the logical conclusion.
'He says we went into this war,
not for preservation or humanity or
the liberties of the world, but merely
because we knew we had to fight and
it was to save our hides. That is your
"The president in one of his cam
paign speeches said: 'I propose to
give you an association of nations
with teeth in it.' Has he delegated
this gentleman to organize that as
sociation? If so, he is developing in
that direction, because it will be an
association that will have at least
a mouth in it, and a mouth is neces
sary to put teeth in, because thot is'
what he has always been-mouth,
"We'were to have all our foreign
policies reversed. I guess the reversal
processes will begin with this distin
guished gentleman who boasts of the
yellow condition of his ansectors dur-'
ing the Civil war."
R. F. Erwin Regarding His Troubles.
"A year ago last winter I had an
attack of indigestion followed by bil
iousness and constipation. Seeing
Chamberlain's Tablets so highly rec
commended for stomach troubles I
bought a bottle of them and they
helped me right away" writes R. F.
Erwin, Peru, Ind. If you have any
trouble with your digestion give these'
tablets a trial. They will do you good.
