UNABLE TO GET WORK.
Thousands Starve to Death,
but He Refuses to Tell
of Cannibalism.
Th peasantry of Russia Is no
longer In need of American relief In
the opinion of Dr. A. C. Ernst of
1 Stillwater, Minn., who as the rep
resentative of the National Lutheran
Council has been In charge of food
distribution In the Saratov district In
the famine area for three years and
also wan associated with tlio Ameri
can Relief Association. But he b-
llaves that this country should con
tribute enough to Insure n supply of
food until January 1 to the educated
class. Dr. Ernst returned to-day on
the United American liner Resolute
from Hamburg.
"The people who are really In pitiful
i straits In Russia," said l3r. Ernst,
I "are the Intellectuals and their chll
' dren. They arc unable to work with
j their hands and that Is tho only kind
I of work that brings any reward In
! Russia. They am looked down upon
by the uneducated workers; every
thing they had has been taken from
I them nnd thousands have starved to
death rather than seek aid.
"In the Volga region, where I had
; charge 0f the distribution of rood in
i 145 villages, the crops will be abun
i dant, considering the scarcity of anl
mala for farm work The cultivation
of the soil has been done almost ex
clusively by human labor, women and
children taking part In drnggtnR
'nlows and harrows. With the ooJ
.on hand the people will have enough
to subsist on until the next '.top.
which should place them on a self
supporting basis."
Pome of the passengers on ihe
Resolute said that Dr. Ernst had Alt
nessed exhibitions of cannibalism In
his work in Russia. He lefu.sed to
discuss his experiences In advance of
his report to' the organization which
sent him abroad.
William J. Love. Vice President of
tho Shipping Hoard, whphas been In
England and Germany for two months,
returned on the Resoluto. Mr. Love,
naturally. Is stiongly In favor of the
Ship Subsidy Hill now before Con
gress. Ak an additional argument In
favor of it he cites the fuct that Brit

build and opeiate more economically

which would cut down operating costs.
Rev. N. W. Hans, iastor of St
Anthony's Roman Catholic Church,
Nanuet, N. V".. returned with a relic
of St. Anthony, which ho obtained at
Padua, Italy. He anticipates that
this relic will make his church a

ApplKes for Writ of Prohibi
tion Against Justice Mor
schatwer's Investigation.
John Woodward, former Supreme
Court Justice, of counsel to Walter 8.
Ward, under Indictment In Westches
ter County for tho murder of Ralph
Petals, appeared before the Appellate
Division In llrooklyn today and nsked
for u writ of prohibition to restrain
Justlco Morsrhntrser from continuing
tho Investigation he has bten conduct.
Ing In Whlto Plains to discover If a
conspiracy exists In tho Ward family
to Impede the course of Justice.
Mr. Woodward In a lengthy argu
ment attacked the Investigation as
unauthorized by law. He said that
justice .Morscnauser. as a Justice of
the Supreme Court ruled that lUiph
H. Wnrd. a brother of Walter, should
not answer a question put to him no
fore the Grand Jury as to what his
father told him about the killing of
Peters. Justice Mn'rschauser. Mr.
Woodward said, decided that the evi
dence nsked for was hearsay.
"And then, continued Mr. Wood
ward, "Justice Morschauser went to
his chambers and constituted himself
a Magistrate and ordered Ralph Ward
to nnswer the very question he had
ruled out in the Grand Jury proceed
ings. Ralph Ward did nnswer tho
question nnd his answer was that his
father hud told him that Walter had
said ho had shot a man who was
blackmailing him."
Mr. Woodward contended that the
District Attorney of Westchester
County has no legal evidence thaf a
c.rlmo was committed In tho Ward
case and Is trying to force tho de
fendant und members of tho de
fendant's family to supply tho evi
dence. John H. Mnck, special assistant
District Attorney of Westchester
County, argued against granting tho
writ. Ho snld that tho purpose of
the Invcstlgntlon is to get at tho
facts.
"They say." said Mr. Mack "that
Walter Ward shot a man who had
blackmailed him. Hut thus far there
has been no evidence produced to
show tho nature of the blackmail.
Tho District Attorney is trying to
find this out."
Decision wns reserved.
