Asked to Issue Order
Washington, Oct. 24.-(By the
Associated Press.)-The - Supreme
Court of the United States will be
asked to issue an order restraining
the government from enforcing the
prohibition laws against transpor
tation- of liquor on foreign ships
'touching American ports and on
American ships outside of Ameri
can coastal waters. Counsel for the
shi'p lines which- instituted the or
iginal proceedings before Federal
Judge Hand in New York were in
Washington today preparing the
necess'ary papers for submittal to
Associate Justice Brandies. Being
assigned to the second circuit-in
which New York City is located Mr.
Brandeis would have supervision
over matters before Judge Hand's
court and a position for a super
sedas order to hold up that court's
dismissal of the ship companies' in
junction case would be filed with
If granted, the supersedas order
would prevent interference with
normal operation of the fleet of the
appellants until the legal point at
issue had been decided by the Su
Unless counsel for the shipping
companies can prevail upon Justice
Brandeis to issue the order, Federal
officers normally would be required
to proceed to enforce the statute as
soon as Judge Hand formally signs
the final order. Under precedents
ju'tices of the Supreme Court are
not inclined to grant injunctione
while the court is in session preferr
ing that such requests shall be sub
mitted to and acted upon by the court
itself. The court if now in recess and
will not again meet until November
Administration officials indicated
today that, even in the absence of
a specific restraining order the gov
ernment was not inclined to enforce
strictly the liquor ruling promulgated
by the Department of Justice so long
is its legality was before the courts.
Temporary regulations which would
be in effect pending a final decision
were laid before secretary Mellon to
day but were withheld from publica
tioii until they have reviewed by At
torney General Daugherty.
It was understood that enforcement
agents wculd be instructed in these
regulations that a certain latitude
was permissible both as regards me
dicinal alcoholic supplies and stocks
designed for "grog" for crews, in
cases where such issuance was a leg
al requirement of their government or
a- long established custom. Judge
Hand in dismissing the injunction pe
tition announced that he would make
an exception covering liquor on board
ships for either of these purposes.

The yearly report of the American

members of this unit are now heartily
co-operating with the work as plan

The following letter has been receiv

Columbia, S. C., Oct. 2, 1922.
Dear Mrs. Geiger,
I received your letter with the copy
of your last year's report. I think
this report is splendid and am sorry
you were not at Florence to make it.
I am writing to urge you to send me
as soon as possible a good account of
the meeting your unit had last week,
so I can use it in our publicity column.
In our new constitution there is a
clause saying that the units must
have monthly meetings, and we want
to help) the weaker units by letting
them know what the strong links in
the chain are doing. I do hope each
unit will do some hospital work every
month, I hope that they will co
operate with The Red Cross in its
work for the ex-service men, and back
up every movement for good in the
community. To keep the faith we
must go forward and work for at bet
ter citizenship. The National Anmeri
can Legion offers at prize every month
to the post doing the biggest piece of
constructive work. We have no money

ALIlIES REACH AN AGIEEMENT
Paris,' Oct. 24.-( By the Associat
ed Press.)--A modification of Great
Britain's position regarding repara
tions, indicated by Sir John Brand
bury at a meeting of the reparations
commission this afternoon will make
it possible for the commissio nto leave
Paris for Berlin Sunday with a unani
mous Allied agreement on what meas
ures will be imposed on Germany's fi
nancial administration for the pur
pose of averting a total collapse of
that country's finances.
The unanimous decision to go to
Berlin was taken after Sir John
had definitely made known that he
on behalf of Great Britain was
wvilling to vote to declare Germany
in voluntary default of her agree
ment, should she refuse to carry out
within a reasonable time requests
for internal reforms which the
commission will make in Berlin.
This was a big surprise to the
reparations commission since it
was a decided concession to the
Heretofore the British repre
sentative had refused to declare
Germany in default under any
conditions and also had declined
to be a party to any move which
might be construed as interfering
with Germany's internal affairs.

the coimmission and the American
obsei'ver's wvas that unless radical
measures were taken to stop the
dleprieciation of the mark, the Al

IGerman financial colapse.
Members of the body said the
question of how much Germany
could pay w~ithin the next two
years, as well as that r'elating to
delivery oif merchandise, might lie
settled as a result of the Beilin
