Business Men See Kenefits
"Business men are beginning to come
to me and say: 'Wc are exporting only
half what we ?rrc-ort; pounds sterling
are away down; 'lung*- are going badly;
you've got thc edge on us in America
with your prohibition; we've got to get
a move on.' Now when serious-minded
isincss men begin to talk like that it
is a sig;i of the times.
"We don't look for much help from
the Church. Hut there was one Scotch
preacher who invited me to speak in hia
church. 'I've got several liquor manu?
facturers in my congregation,' (?aid he.
' 'Give them hades.' "
"How are you i*.;!::r-x te tackle the
: problem ? f making Great Britain ?try'.'"
the interviewer interrupted.
"Local option. That's the answer,"
ail Johnson. "We will get a little
; toehold there, a foothold or handhold

.a.a A year from November Scotland
will vote en thc question under thc act
of 1913 which ?rave the liquor manu

lands that Johnson expects to effect his
: rst coup.
Predicts Victory in Scotland
"We think already that we have sev
I eral communities lined up," he said.
Johnson also thinks irelan?l wants
i local option, saving:
'?The whole Ulster delegation of
twenty-six men is behind it. This
means practically the whole Irish dele
' gation in Parliament, since most of the
j Sinn Feiners are in jail. Besides, the
; Sinn Fein isn't wet."
Meanwhile the country roars with
: laughter at "Pussyfoot" jokes, which
are becoming as common as Ford
es, and retases to take the
1 erophet of universal prohibition seri?
ously. But Johnson doesn't care.
"Soi letimes," he says, "they get abn

More Native American Seamen
The proportion of native born anc

ships during the fiscal year ended Jum

thirds during 1914.
REGARD for the clothing of

with fads or extremes.

Police of Dublin
Deported Him, Says
Charges He Was Imprisoned.
Robbed and Ful Aboard
Ship Without a Chance to
Send Word to His Family
William Pedlar, an American citizen,
related yesterday in the law office of
Alfred J. Talley. Assistant District
Attorney, his adventures as a resident
of Dublin. Mr. Talley submitted proof
of Pedlar':? citizenship yesterday to the
immigration authorities at Ellis Island
end obtained th'* release of his client,
who had arrived on the Maurctania as
:i deportee from England. Pedlar is a
native Irishman, but was naturalized
in Philadelphia in 1915.
His wife, a New York girl of Irish
descent, and their three children, the
?rldest seven, are still i?ji Ireland. Pe?l
lar was deported without seeing them.
They went to Dunlin in 1916, and
! Pedlar started a stationery shop there.
After the Easter revolt in that yenr
Pedlar was arrosrvd, with about 1,000
I others. He declared that ho never
j knew what tho charge wan against "him
and that tho conditions of his incar
I ccration were most onerous. He was
j released in June, 191??, without having
I had a hearing, he said.
Family Given No News
"On my release," he said, "I went
? back to my family. They had not. been
? informed of what hod become of me.
i I found my business gone to pieces, but
I I started in all over again."
j Inside of four week.; he was arrested
, ?.gain, he said, to be released in May,
I 1917. Pedlar made no mention i*i his
? tale of what evidence there might havi
i been against him or what the charge
might have been on either of the first
? two occasions. He emphasized th?
j grievance that he liad no hearing
I either time. In May, 1918, however
I when he was arrested again, th?
: charge was ''dulling in a hall." hi
"When brought beforoj the magis
i trate," he said, "1 refused to recogniz'
[ the right of an English court to tr
me and was sent to Belfast jail fo
' five and a half months. I was relean
in November and went back to m

"On the 16th of the present mor
! the worst happened. I was working
that evening in my little garden about
the house when a policeman came up and
asked me to po around to the station
with him to identify some papers and
answer some questions as to my
American citizenship. 1 did so. not
'?hanging my clothes but wearing a
l.nockalxjut suit and an old hat. When

Corea Has Ancient City
Few white men have been fortunate
enough to wander inland, in Corea as
far as the ancient city of Musan. This
city, with its grim old walls bearing!
five centuries of history, lies on the
very edge of Corea. To enter it is like
stepping backward to another world,
into a storv of the Arabian Nights.
Durirur the Russo-Japanese W'ar sev
eral Russians took refuge there, and
since then half a dozen foreigners have
discovered it. but, except for these
stragglers, Musan lies unknown to t.h<*
Western World. The great central
palace, or reception hall of the city,
remains intact, and ciose by, in partial
ruins, is the temple gue t house. Toe
smaller public buildings, the grate-, the
watch towers and even the walls them
selves have th-ir own particular story
to tell of Musan's interesting past, but
few people know it.
I'eople who have hunted tig?
the vicinity of Musan say thi ana
are more beautiful than their relatives
of India or the Malay Peninsula. These
beauties range among the bitterly cold
mountains of China, Corea and Man?
churia, and far into Siberia. Detroit
