DETROIT STATE BANKS TO AGAIN GET POSTAL FUNDS Detroit state and savings bank* which were depositories for money of ihe United States postal favines oanks before the Federal Re try* bank act went Into effect, have been Informed that they will again be eli gible to receive funds from the poa tal savings institutions under an act approved May 18, 1916, after filing of approved bonds with the treasury department. When the government refused to permit the deposit of postal savings In Detroit state banks because they were not In the federal reserve sys tem, the banks charged that they were being made the objects of dis crimination in favor of the national banks. The modification of the fed eral reserve act to again permit state and savings banks to accept po3tal savings. Is regarded by De troit bankers as an indication that tlie course first taken, instead of at tracting -state banks to membership in tbe federal reserve system, an tagonized them.

SEATTLE PAPER IS DRV NOW Publisher Who Fought for Wets “Takes It All Back” ADMITS STAND WAS ALL WRONG ‘Miles of Empty Stores’ Have Failed to Ma terialize Forced against Its will, because of the success of prohibition In Washington, to espouse the dry cause, the Seattle Times now come* out with an editorial In which it ad mit* that it “fought its damndest” to save the saloon, but after seeing prohibition tried for sii months, takes back All it said in the cam paign. The editorial, written and sljgned by the publisher. MaJ Clar ence Hrettun Blethen. says in part; "Well, we've had six months of prohibition, and I can t find those miles of empty stores. In several states, three of which are Montana, California and Missouri, advertise ments and news articles are appear In* dally in newspapers, much simi lar in construction and tone to the advertisements and arguments against prohibition which appeared in the columns of the Times prior to the ‘dry’ election in Washington “There isn't so much being said about the evil effects of prohibition In Kansas as was said in the adver tisements that appeared in Seattle. Perhaps this Is due to the fact that the men responsible for the ‘wet’ publicity have found out what I have—that It isn’t safe to base any arguments against prohibition on conditions In that state. On the contrary. I have become convinced that the results of prohibition in Kansas are about as powerful argu ments for the ‘dry* as they could possibly desire. “The Times admits it was wrong when It said, during the campaign against prohibition, that the en forcement of the statutes would mean miles of empty stores In Be attle, reduced bank clearings, re duced bank deposits, reduced ren tals. reduced realty values and gen eral business depression Six months ago prohibition went into effect. None of the dire things prophesied for the first half of the year 1916 has occurred. On the contrary Se attle has prospered wonderfully.” ROOMERS FLEE IN NIGHTIES Early Morning Fire Disturbs Whole Block of Sleepers; Other Blazes Roomers in the house at No. 146 Howard-st., owned by Mrs. Ruth Schreiner, were forced to flea to | the street in ihelr night clothe* ! •‘hortly after 1 o'clock.
