Thia is the frank admission of As- 1 : District Attorney Markewich, in charge of the county prosecutor's in-: . ation of food price?. "So far, I have;.'; nay evidence of violation of the ateta anti-trust act," 1 last night. "Under the present: law we are absolutely powerless to deal with individual speculators. And the . worst thing is that these fellows ar keenly aware of the fact. "No one neeiis to be told that the metnods used by food ??ramblers are wKH.it. They are outrageous; but on* Itsa we return to tue old common law principle.- that existed in England ao*#? eral hundid years niro these men who take advantage of food shortages to goujre the consumer will continue to go ivnmolested. It is almost impossible to i'evise a law that will prevent commi aion men from speculating. They will ?ven resort to buying from dummies" Mr. Markewich explained that there vere ways in which some of the evils COIlld be curbed. He hopes the results n-reatigation will point them out. It has been shown, he said, that live pcultry wholesalers and shippers were permitted to hold carloads of fowl on the tracks in New Jersey for weeks waiting for prices to rise. "I have reported this to the Inter? nate Commerce Commission, and I recommend an order prohibiting the holding of live fowl more than twenty lour hour?. Retailer? who have com jloined to me agree that this is the only remedy." said Mr. Markc-wich. One Woman Makes Up "Parade of Hungry" The front windows of City Hall were put to considerable use after the I oon hour yesterday. Those in tea ball, having had forewarning thai another and bigger "parade of the hungry" was to march out of the lower Hast Side on the Mayor's office, kept a weather eye peeled for the advance jruard. There were to be thousands of mo'hers, thousands of babies and thousands of school children in the demonstration, it was promised, and reserves in the downtown stations were held in readi? ness. Shortly before -? o'clock the lews ran through tne corridors -"Here they come'" A woman, holding aloft a big banner, ! had just swung around the corner of the hall. She was "they" Mrs. Ida Harris, of the Mothers' Vigilance Com i mittee, agitator in chief of the food | riots?grandly and gloriously alone. Mrs, Harria took up a position out thc windows of the Mayor's office. i She displayed first that side of the ! banner which pictured a starving ; mother, holding a baby and voicing | thi* sentiment : "America first.

She said aha had de> elded tu hoi?! off her thre.it ned "school Strike" fur another week, but would keen attention on the food situation with "a new stunt for every day." At 5 o'clock this morning she plans to demonstrate* in Washington Market. Women of East Side Refuse to Buy Onions "Even if onions should be four cents a pound and I should get trailing stamps I wouldn't buy them." Mrs. Sarah Manschewitz, of 45 Alien Street, hud spoken for the Jewish housewi.es of the East Side. With several hundred other women she had gathered yesterday afternoon in front of Forward Haul, 175 Ea?t Broadway, t?* denounce high prie?' . "What for should we est potatoes?" lire. Manschewitz i|uened belligerently. "I don't care if we neM-r eat 'em." "Nor I," chorused boycotters. Thus the onion and ti?e potete found that for the present at least their use fulneas in the homes of Jewir-h house W?V<M was curtailed. Chichona, too. went begginfr. The ritualistic slaughterers of the East Side - and there are nearly 1,000 of them m greater New York no longer found it necessary to visit the butcher slups. Isidor Corn, organizer of th? Korher Butchers' Union, begged the women to rid his constituents of 600.000 I fcwls at 15 cents a pound wholesale. "Yes." replied a member of the | Mothers* Ant; High Price League, "and ihen what? We'll eat all the chicken** and they'll jump to 30, maybe 35, cents a pound i.gain." The East Side a?so put rice on the boycott list. George w. Perkins is to blame for it. He made the commodity too popular, snd the East Side house wires didn't like that. "We ain't no Chinese to est rice sll th' time," Mrs. Manschewiti remarked. Forty carloads of chickens, about ?10,000 fowls, have been held in the fnig'nt yards of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad at St. ('eorge, Staten Island., and St Arlington, N. J., for four days. ' Thcv are consigned to kosher butchers of the East Bide, whs refuse to take ^ them while the present boycott con-, tirues. Emerson Grieved Because Perkins Ignored Calories Letter to Mayor Protests Against Plain Language of , Committee's Circular The "caloric" and its dietetic rela-j tives, "protein" and "carbohydrate, ? which have lain unnoticed since the police rookies ate their last test meal, .-prang into public notice again yester? day a? the ciiuse of a rquabble between Health Commissioner Emerson and Goorfe W. Perkins, of the Mayor's Food Supply Committee. Commissioner Emerson is a physician and |s on friendly terms with the cal? oric an?! its associates. In the daily food bulletins issued by the Health De? partment they always occupy a prom? inent place. Picture the commissioner's grief when he received n copy of the pamphlet issued by the food commit? tee and in the recipes on how to cook rice in various forms, found them not once. The aforementioned picture of Pr. Emerson's grief must necessarily be hazy, for Mayor Mitchel refused to give out the letter which bo received from his health commissioner, protesting against the "plain language" of Mr. Perkins's pamphlets. Dr. Emerson wouldn't make the lett??r public, either. Mr. Perkins heard of the protest, however, and when asked for his com? ment dictated the following statement Concerning Mr. Emerson's letter and his circular: "As I understand it. it says in effect thnt it is a simple circular, worded in the most commonplac?' language. I re ggrd this as highly complimentary to the circular it is exactly what we in? tended. In issuing our circular we had some of the Health Department's cir- ' cilars and newspaper bulletins before us and tried our best to keep as far away from their language as we pos aiblj| could. "We omitted all talk about proteins and calories and units, and trjed our best to talk to the people in the lan truaire we understood and we believed they ?would understand." i ?, Per MONTH ON * ** PLEDGE OF PERSONAL PROPERTY THE PROVIDENT LOAN SOCIETY OF NEW YORK Applications for loans of large amounts will be considered at the office at Fourth Avenue and 25th Street MANHATTAN Fourth Avenue, cor. ?3th Slreet F.ldndge Su cor.

Powerless To Punish Food Price Boosters Attorney Genera) Declares Extortion Beyond Reach of Law Legislation Is Suggested Grego.ry Says Speculators Might Be Reached Through Mail Statutes Wa?hington, Feb. 27. Attorney Gen oral Gregory to-day advised Senator Horah that no evidence had been found up to the present, except in two or three cases, to warrant the Federal government in seeking indictments in it? investigation o!" the rising cost of living. The ?ale of foodstuffs by retailer? to consumers in various cities and communities, the Attorney General stated, generativ falls outside the juris? diction of the Feilernl government, and increases brought about by "a common selfish impulse of trader? to take a?l vantage of the extraordinary* condition of the times are not punishable under any existing Federal law, no matter how completely lacking in economic justification, no matter how extor? tionate." Possible Hcmedv Suggested A possible remedy, the Attorney Gen? eral ?aid, might be making by legisla? tion "the charging of extortionate prices in interstate commerce an of? fence per se, although not the result of either conspiracy or monopoly." '?I r. Gregory presented his views in a long letter to the Idaho Senator, who is the author of a pending bill to ap? propriate $?i,000,000 for relief of suf-. feifrs from the high cost of living. One of his suggestions WOt as to whether the jiroduce exchanges and stockyards of the country should be placed under much closer government? al scrutiny and regulation. "Without stopping now to inquire," Hr. Gregory's latter said, "how far the Federal government could directlv reg? ulate such exchanges, it could doubt? less accomplish the same objects by prescribing !h<* conditions under which they should be permitted ta use the mails.'' Too Late for Legislation Largely because of the short time remaining of the present session of Congress, it was said, no legislation had been prepared. At the SOggtMUoi of Interstate Com niKI ?"onimission officials the District of Columbia to-day adopted the plan of taking a complete inventory of all the foodstuffs for sale ?n the district, to establish almost conclusively wheth? er recent advances were justiiicd by an actual shortage. -3?*irs Emptied to End Short-age Thousands Released at Chicago by Storing Freight Chicago, Feb.

W. Higgin?. chairman of the General Managers' As ' sociation of Chicago. In a statement ; to-day he blamed the car shortage . squarely to the scarcity of ocean tdiip ping. The dumping of freight, despite great expense, continue?, Mr. Higgitis said. in the effort to get cars to places where I : tney are most needed. His statement i takes issue with assertions made in ; some quarters that the car shortage la responsible in part for high prices.

Legislators Act Slowly on Food Relief Measure Visiting Committee Fails to Move Governor to In?m?e diate Action ?n a BStaf ?'? rratDoodent of Tlw Tribu??? 1 Albany, Feb. 27. The activity of the Legislature and the Governor in the food situation simmered down to-day to ;i cartful rather than a precipitate policy. Mayor Mitchel's bill, spon? sored by Senator Ciilchrist and Assem? blyman Perlman. authorizing in einer gencie? an unsalaried commission of three members in New York City to purchase fi^od and coal and resell them at reasonable prices, was advanced to final passage in both houses. But it stopped ther? to permit a study of the probable consequences of its enact? ment. Governor Whitman asserted that he wou'.il not press it by an emergency message. He would not be moved by a committee headed by Carl Heck, Mrs. Theresa Walkiei and Mrs. Josephine Nixon, representing the Kast Side, labor and other organizations, who urged im? mediate action. Mayor Mitcliel wrote him, urging early legislation on the city's food supply, but suggested only the passage of the Wicks bill. The Gilchrist-I'erlman bill's proposed commission would be appointed only after the Mayor certified to the Board ADVERTISEMENT SAFEST and STRONGEST Our GUARANTEED MORTGAGES No Loans mad?* on vacant land, factories, theatre?, or other special risks.
