Evidence Points to Formal Dec

LcvDox, Nor. 31 That the Sinn Fein
parliament had formally declared a state
of war to exist with England was the
i belief of many oScials of the Irish office
todav. They had no direct information
that this was the case, but evidence is
accumulating that such a step was taken.
This belief was backed by informa
tion which declared the Sinn Fein sup
porters had leaped into a renewal of at
tacks here and in Ireland.
The Dublin murders and the attack on
the police patrols which culminated in
the slaughter of seventeen Black and Tan
policemen in Kalmicbael was regarded
here as tlie work of men who regarded
themselves as carrying on a legal war

St. Lolt., Nov. 30v Further price
declines tni a tendency of business to
slow down vas shown in the report of
the Federal Keserve Bank of the eighth
district covering Missouri, Arkansas and
Tennessee here today.
Buying has narrownl down to neces
sities. Orders for future deliveries are
at a minimum.
Jn certain lines noticeable in teilflss.
liquidation has been progressing at a
rapid rate. Several leading wholesalers
have held sales recently at which mer
chandise valued at $15,000,000 was sold.
The slowing down during this period
has resulted in a conuderabtsreductiorr
in operating forces- The supply oTTabor
is more than the demand, and the sup
ply is increasing. However, wage re

There are fewer strikes in progress Than
