Several Reasons Back of De

NEW YORK, June 29. The billion
dollar campaign of tho interchurch'
world movement has been abandoned, I
it was announced, following a meeting
of the executive committee. The en-1
tire project may end July S. It was
said, when the general committee will
meet to consider what steps, if any,
will be taken to carry on other aspects
of the campaign.
Several reasons were back of tho de
cision, the committee stated, tho prin
cipal one being the present prevalence
of "drives of various kinds."
The withdrawal of the Baptist hurch.
north, and the Presbytorian church,
north, also were said to bo Important
factors In the decision. Originally the
lnlcrhurch world movement proposed
to direct the raising of ?1, 320. 211.551
for tho work at home and abroad of
the fifty eight boards and solotlcs
which became parties to tho move
ment. For tho first year. 1920. the
budget called for $336,777,57.2, which
was to be raised by a drive, closely
patterned after Liberty loan methods,
between April 21, and Mav 20 last.

1'eniinLs Take Stand.
When the Ball Kent commission
fixed these rates, tenants refused to
pay more. Tho owners of the apart
ment cut oft tho gas and light, and
discontinued other services. This In
furiated the tenants and they arc re
fusing to pay any rent at all and are
burning candles and cooking with
wood alcohol. Some of them havo
forbidden the landlord to evon comci
around to collect the rent.
Right in tho middle of these strained
relations two members of tho district
supreme court. Justices Josiah Van
Orsdel and Clinton Roob, declared tho
Ball ront law unconstitutional, and
left town. Chief Justice C. J. Smyth
rendered a hot dissenting opinion, de
claring the decision of the other Jus
tlcos all wrong and upholding the law.

This decision came In a case inde-
pendent of tho Monmouth Hotel case,
and the owners of the Monmouth

oust all the tenants. The tenants have
sought relief from the rent commis

filed a writ of error with the district!
supreme court setting forth the fol

ambiguities, inconsistencies, evasions,

'slanders'. It Is deliberately unfair In
charging upon tho Democratic admin
istration all responsibility for military

that the Republican party controlled
the government for a long period
prior to tho inauguration of President
Wilson. When the Democratic party
went Into power March 4, 1913. both

"The plank In tho Republican plat
form respecting taxation Is Manifestly
insincere. They promised no substan

"Perhaps the most significant omis

Is in respect to tho excessive use of
