tBr Aaaoclntrd Preaa.)
Washington Sept. 20.' The de
partment of justice is considering
whether federal action shall be taken
in connection with the activities of
the Kuklux Klan, Attorney General
Daugherty said today.
Mr. Daugherty said he would con
fer tomorrow with Director Burns,
of the Bureau of Investigation, who
has been, directed to look into the
Wounhl seen a . .
tion of the Kuklux Klan in some dis
tricts and urge indictments against
any members where justified.
The attorney general discussed the
matter today with District Attorney
Hayward of New York and several
of the assistant attorneys general,
but said that no conclusion as to
whether the federal government
should take part in the kuklux ques
tion had been Cached.
Any , tederal action against the
klan, Mr. Daugherty said, would pro
bably be under some statute covering
conspiracy, but the legal problem in
volved, he added, was somewhat com
plex. On its face, he explained, the
literature of the Kuklux Klan wa3
not in violation of the law.
What was to be determined, he
explained, was what went on behind
the scenes, "the wink an dthe nod that
turns the trick."
The government, Mr. Daugherty
said, is not to be run or intimidated
by any man or organization behind
a mask.
Will HIT JEARLY All
Practically Only Drug
Stores Be Allowed to
Keep Open
An ordinance that no place of busi
ness shall be open on Sunday for the
purpose of selling cold drinks or any
other articles permitted by ordinance,
where there are any groceries or
clothing, or other merchandise, kept
in stock, was put on its final reading
in council last night and passed.
The ordinance, it developed in de
bate, was prepared at the instance
of the retail grocers of the city who
complained that some of the retail
grocerymen were using the soft
drink as a blind that they might
keep their places open on Sunday.
At a previous' meeting of council it
was stated that some grocerymen sold
more on Sunday than they did on
Saturday.
Both Aldermen Pierce and John
son spoke against he ordinance. Al
derman fierce said that if it is
council's intention to close up the
city on Sunday, including all places
of business, that it should be done,
but to close a small store whose chief
revenue was from soft drinks and ice "
cream on the very day it made its
largest sales was contrary to justice.

Cairloch, Scotland, Thursday, and it
seems certain that there will be no
Irish peace conference at Inverness
for, according to thelatest reports,
the Premier has decided to return to
London at the end of the week if his
health is sufficiently restored, m
which case the next formal cabinet
session will be held in, London.

rest on a charge of murder.
No indictment will be returned un
til all the federal departments operat
ing in the case have completed their
several investigations, announces
Robert H. McCormick, assistant
United States attorney general. The
investigation will be resumed by the
grand jury Friday, he said.
Today's witnesses were Mrs. Maude
Dclmont, Miss Alice Blake, Miss Vey
Prevost and Mrs. Mae Taube, who
were present at the party, a bell boy
at thc hotel and a hotel maid. "We
simply wanted their testimony per

posed towards the peace conference
than before.

A telegram to Lowell Sherman, a
participant in the affair, was sent
today to Chicago by District Attorney
Brady, asking Sherman to come to
San Francisco to give his version of
the affair. 1
Mayor Vetoes Lew
A communication from Mayor
H earnside was read m which he an
nounced his veto of the ordinance
fixing the tax levy and apportioning
the millage. The mayor said that the
millage did not provide a sufficient
amount for the sinking fund. This
letter had been sent to the finance
committee previously, and a meeting
had been held at which a new levy
was made up. This was reported and
Adopted last night. It was for the
same millage but some of the items
were changed.
City Attorney Merryday reported
on the legal side of the controversy
with the Southern Utilities Company
over the charging of a sum in excess
of franchise rates for gas. He-said
that plans were under way for tak
ing proceedings against the company
when the company appealed to the
federal court and stopped all state
court proceedings. He was voted au
thority to proceed to represent the
city's interests in the federal court.
He announced that the case was to
have come up in Tampa yesterday but
that he was advised at the last
minute that Judge Call had postponed
the hearing.
To Enforce Distress Wrarants
The City Attorney also stated to
council chat he did not believe it ad-

pointing out that the city has the
machinery with which to enforce
collections. This is by levy on per
sonal and realty property and selling
it.
Alderman Smith said that some
drastic steps should be taken, that
the people who paid their taxes
regularly were protesting that so
much leniency is being shown, es
pecially while the city is in such
financial difficulties. The list h
said, would show many people rid
ing around in fine automobiles while
they owed es for several years
back. If all the people were to re
fuse W pay their taxes, he said, the
city would be in a bad fix. It was
nnaliy decided to put the matter
squarely up to the Chief of Police
to wake the levies and seizures. .
Chief Starting Out

following the meeting. "I know I'll

was defined by Professor C. H. Wil-

College, at Gainesville, the principal
speaker of the day, as the cow that
produced less than 300 pounds of

The only kind of a cow that will
earn her board and keep and at the
same time' earn a profit for her own
