Cuban Political Peace bv May 1 General Reports Reasonable Hope That Problems Will Be Adjusted Before End of the Menocal Regime < Financial Relief in Siglit U. S. Envoy Urges Changes in Bill to lift Moratorium and Creatine Bank Board From Thr TriOi ne'a Washington Bureau WASHINGTON, .lan. 24.?In report ing that he entertaiued a reasonable hope for a settlement of the political problems in Cuba before the end of the Menocal administration, on May 1, Major General Enoch H. Crowder, the President'a personal emiasary at Havana, advised the State Department to-day .fully on the provisions of the Torri'ento bill, adopted by the Cuban Senate as a measure of relief for the present financial crieis in the island. He is hopefui of settlement of the po? litical turmoil in the island by May 1. General Crowder's report was not in terpreted by State Department officials as approving the scheme for lifting the moratorium. which has been in effect in Cuba since last October, for he sug? gested several amendments that he thoucfht would improve the proposed legislatlon. If the suggested chanprcs are ap? proved bi' tlie President. General Crowder indicated that the Cuban House would iake favorable action, and provision would be made immediately for putting into effect the remedics pro? posed. The measure. provides for tlie estab lishment of a comm.ssion of three mem? bers, named by the President, before which all commercial houses and banks can declare their intention ol" taking advantage of the law or remaining out? side. Those institutions which accept the commission will have their affairs liquidated within a period -of three months, while those who elect to stay out immediately will cease to be eligible to the. provisions of the mora? torium. General Crowder said that he had talked with numerous officials, bankers and merchants on the contemplated act, and that he found it in general favor. He said, however, that some in? stitutions, financiaiiy able to meet all obligations, had indicated that they would welcome the immediate ending of the. moratorium. I It was net disclosed at the State De? partment what amendments to the law as pafcsed by the Cuban Senate Gen? eral, Crowder had suggested. It was indicated, however, that Crowder's iudghrent would be supported, and that the approval of this government to the oill as amended may be dispatched to Havana at once. Diacussing the politVal situation, General Crowder said t.'iat the court's alrciid had taken tip the contested i easesyend that present indications war- i ranted the hope for a settlement of the ! Presjdjential dispute in time to prevent' the estabhshment of an ad interim gov- ' ernmerit to serve fol.owing the ter-nina tion ot President Menocaf's administra- 1 tion in May. i -1-,- ,1 Faitfell Backs Heriry In False Arrest Suit Sefernl police witnesses were exam ined yesterday in the Supreme Court in the suit of John Bohan. a nifrht watchman, lagainst former Police In? spector Dominick Henry, Detectiv John J. Gunson and Detective John Maloney for alleged assault and false arrest. Bchen was a watchman in West Sev entieth Street. On his route was a house-which the police raided becaus=> of comp'.aints by neighbors.

Clergy Decide Women's Attire Disregards Health, Not Morals Special Dispatch to The Tribune PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 24.?The clergj? do not ngree on women's attire,. Al? though the majority do not flay femi nine fashions as being. immodest, they say that ii" women do err, they do so against health rather than against jnorals. , Nearly 1,200 clergymen in Philadel phia and other cities have given their opinions in response to a query on the subject. Women'q waists should cover their necks "unless they want to get pneu monia," adv'scs the Rev. M. G. Kyle, professor at Xenia United Prcsbyte rian Seminary, St. Louis. Skirts that do not gather up the dirt of the streets are favored by the Rev. Herbert E. Benton, pastor of* the Uni versalist Church of the Messiah. "But such abbreviation of the skirt should be guided by good judgment," hc adds. Senate Passes Bill to Control Meat Packers Continued from first pao? to 37. Senator Kenyon took the posi tion that this did not weaken the bill, and ho said he did not consider there was much weighCin statements that this amendment \vo|nld enabie packers to camouflage themselves under the business of farming or livestock raia ing. Senator Kenyon declared the bill had bean passed de.spite the utmost efforts of the packers, through their agents and representatives here, to defeat it and that it was significant of the fact i that there are certain lines of indus? try important to the public interest which Congress believes should be rcg ?ilated. Discriminatory Practices Barred As the bill stands, it is entitled "a bill to create a Federal livestock com? rnission, to define its powers and duties and to stimulate the produetion, sale and distribution of livestock and live? stock products and for other purposes." The comrnission is to have three mem? bers, at a salary of $10,000 each. It is to have all the powers and duties heretofore exerciscd by the bureau of markets in the Department of Agricul-' ture, so far as those duties relate to acquisition of dissemination of infor-1 mation about the livestock industry. It is required to obtain exnaustive infor? mation about that industry. The most vital features' of the bill are found in Title III, wherein it is made unlawful for packers to cngage in unfair or discriminatory practicc to apportionor divide business or ter-I ritory, to engage directly or indirectly i in the bus3iicss of purchasing, manu- j facturing storing or selling food- j stuffs- other than livestock products where the effect will be substantiallv to lessen competition, to enter into combination or agreements with other packers regarding sales, prices or ap portionment pf territory or conspire or agree with other packers to prevent ! any person carrying on a similar or competitive business. Furthermore, after two years, the packers are required to strip them selyes of ownership of the stockyards or interest thereln. L'measonable charges, rates and practices are prohibited. Complete pub licity and uniformity in accounting are among the other requirements. Penal ties of both fines and imprisonment are provided. Primarily, the bill is aimed at the 1'ig Five packers and one of its most important results, if it becomes law ' will be to drive them out of tlie busi? ness of canning fruils and vegetables and otherwise doing what amounts al? most to a general wholesale grocery business. .., . . i The packers, in fact, charge ihat one I of the most potent influences leading to the agitation for iegislation has been ' thc National Association of Wholesale Grocers. The "Big Five" packers have i been sharply criticized in reports of! the Federal Trade Comrnission. Bothjj the Senate and House -Committee oifl -Agriculture have gone into the opera? tions of the packers at length in hear ings on the bill. To-day's discussion lasted from 10 o'clock in the morning until 5 in the afternoon. Senator Smoot, Senator Warren and Senator Edge were leading1 speakers against the measure. Five-] minute speeches occupied much of the | afternoon. In the course of the day Senator' Warren read resolutions adopted by the Legislature of his state against the | bili. This caused a sharp clash be? tween him and Senator Kenyon, who , conducted the campaign for the meas-: | ure on the floor. Senator Kcm-on called i attention to the fact that all tho stock ) men in the Senate and House of the | Wyoming Legislature voted against j the resolution. He denounced the reso i lutions as "a piece of cheap politics" 1 against Senator Kendrick, of Wyoming, j who was working for the legislation! ?. He asserted Swift & Co. had sent a : man to Wyoming to take charge of the movement to get resolutions. Sherman Attacks the Retailers Senator Sherman, of Illinois, in a scathing speech, attacked the suppo'rt crs of the bill. He told of exorbitant j profits of 100 to 140 per cent by retail ? ere on meats. | "Why hasn't somebody complaincd i here about the retailers?" hc asked i "The retailers are a little too num >r | oua for you gentlemen to tackle. That's , the reason you never go after the ro j tailers." Senator Ransdell, of Louisiana, want? ed to know if a business was private "It can be and usualy is done in such a manner as to warrant no charge of im modesty." Bishop L. J. Coppin summed up his views in this succinct fashion, "Women should dress to be comfortable." Another ciergyman voices his dis approval of women exposing their bosoms as "unhygienic and dangerous." He condemns tight lacing? and urges more protection from the knees to the ankles. "As to modesty," he says, "I do not vememhfr ever meeting any lady on the Phfladelphia stroets whose attire -?truck me as immodest." The Rev. John R. Hart jr., Episcopal chaplain at the University of Penn? sylvania and secretary of the Christian Association, has ben appointed to rcp resent the clergymen in the designing cf gow.is, which are to be shown at the "bizarre" to be held January 21 to February 5. "where five big packers control the food industry of this country." Under the agreement reached we?iks ago, the bill and amendments were to be voted on at 4 o'clock. Senator Pitt man, at 3:45, voted to reeommit th-j bill to the Committee on Agriculture. This was ruled out of order. On ap pcal from the ruling of the Vice-Presi? dent, the chair was sustained, 50 to 30. ! Senator Hitchcock offered an amend- ! ment under which the packers would i have been required to bid on livestock j a week in advanci. He held the big j packers knew their requirements for a ! v eek ahead, as well as for to-day. This | was defeated, 70 to 8. ' Senator Sterling, of South Dakota, \ offered an amendment which would j have required the Federal Trade Com- j mission, instead of the proposed live- j t.tock commission, to administer the ! law. On a roll call the motion failed, 34 to 43. On motion of Senator Wadsworth, the term "livestock" as found in th<! bill was restricted to cattle, sheep and lAvine, and "horses, mules and goats" were elimiuated. As a result of this amendment, mar kets or yards where horses, mules or goats are kept, and not cattle, sheep or swine, are not under the regulatory provisions of the measure. Amendments proposed by Senator France calKng for the most complete publicity of proceedings of the com? mission were beaten, but later an amendment by Senator Borah wr.s j adopted which requircs all proceedings ; of the commission, save conferences of the members, to be public. Jersey House Puts Dry Enforcement Program Through Repeal of Edwards 3.5 P. C. Beer Bill Passed Unani mously; Ratification Res? olution Also Is* Enacted Fpccial Dispatch to The Tribune TRENTON, N. J., Jan. 24.?Without formidable opposition and with very little talk the House of the New Jersey Legislature to-night put through two thirds of the Republican party's legis? lative program dealing with prohibi? tion as applied to this state. By a vote of 51 to 4 the resolution of Assemblyman Roberts, of Burlington County, for ratification of the Federal prohibition amendment was enacted.

Geddes Trip Now Said to Refer to Foreign Trade Ambassador Closely . Guarded and Secret Service Men Fctul Off AU lnterviews From Thc Tribuue's European Bureau Copyrlgrht, 1921, New York Tribune Inc. LONDON, Jan. 24.?The significance of the visit here of Sir Auckland Geddes, British Ambassador to the United States, who arrived in Liver pool this morning and in London to night, is now said to touch on Britain's foreign tradc problems and the finan? cial mission to the United States to be undertaken soon by Lord Chalmers. This interpretation, drawn despite the absolute secrecy surrounding the ambassodor's presence, has grown out of the fact that he was met at the dock by Sir John Henry, an old friend and associate of his on the Board of Trade. The two men enterwd a privato car and conferred during the trip to London. Henry durins the war was a liaison official for all the departments of the government and hc is still in c1r>se touch with them. Sir Auckland was closely guarded by Scot and Yard detectives from the mornent that he walked down the gang plfnk at dawn, the first passenger to alight. The ambassador refused to be intei viewed in Liverpool, and the secret serv? ice men kept all newspaper rr.en away from him. On his arrival in London Sir Auck'and was met at the station bv a group of reporters, but he insisted he had nothing to say. When asked v.-hother he had been summoned to Fncrland or had returned at his own lc-quest. he said: "You may say that the arrangenient has been made to ii t in." Soon after his arrival tho ambas? sador went to the Foreign Office for a conference with Sir William Tyrrell, Under Secretary and expert in Ameri? can affairs. Ae;ain he went into con? ference with Henry, and to-night he saw Andrew Bonar Law, the acting Premier. To~m6rrow Sir Auckkind de parts for Paris to see Lloyd George ! He will return to London wrhin a j week. it is said, and to the United States within a month.

(Pussyfoot) Johnson yesterday at the annual meeting of Xew York ministers in the Marble Col legiate Church, Twenty-ninth. Street and Fifth Avenue. The international crusader, whose ac tivities for the abolition of liquor in England cost him an eye some time ago, stressed the importance of New York City as the focal point from which news of the United States is dissemi tf:ated in Europe, and declared the fight for prohibition is being waged here more than in any other spot in th# world. , Resolutions commending Governor Miller for his efforts to "uplvold respect for the law and to sccuro the enforce? ment of prohibition" we!?e adopted by the ministers. Another resolution adopted urged the withdrawal of all church advertising from the columns of metropolitan newspapers that stand for the nullilication of the prohibition act. i The adoption of the last resolution the ministers said, was an action taken on their own initiative, and one for which the Anti-Saloon League was in no part responsible. It was offered bj Pr. Robert Watson, pastor of the See ond Presbyterian Church, Ninety-sixth Street and Central Park West. Mr. Johnson told his hearers that violations of the dry law will always cxist to the same extent that the laws against robbery and other crimes are broken* "If America makes good and enforccs the law everywhere with the same suc? cess as she is now enforcing it in most parts," he said, "the whole world will follow in our footsteps. But if America fails civili-ation at this supreme mo? ment the cause of prohibition through out the world is dead for a hundred vcars. A short while ago the Prime Minister of England told a friend of mine that if America made good with the prohibition law Engla'ia itself would be dry within ten years! "And this issue is going to he foucrht :>ut right here in New York City m /re than any other spot in the world. Furope gets most ?of her eable news trom this city. Practically all the American corrcspondents of European ;ournals are stationed here. Europe has little interest in anything that happens in Kansas or Da'kota. But anything that hapnens in New York is of interest in -every home in Britain. 1'roper enforcement of the law in t'-is -ity means more to prohibition throughout the world than coes en forcement in all the rest of the coun? try together.''

Stroot NEW VORK Budget Committee Stays Away From Craig's Locked Door Hylan as Chairman Places Self on Committee to Ask Comptroller to Rescind Detefmination to Resign The finance and budget committee, f 10311 which Comptroller Craig, its chairman, resigned when the Board of Estimate voted to take up budget mak? ing as a committee of the whole, in? stead of leaving it to the committee of which he was chairman, met at the City Hall yesterday after scouts had reported that Comptroller Craig seemed in a mood to make good his threat to Iock his office door if the committee .tried to meet there as usual. Mayor Hylan was in the chair in the Comptroller's place and, as soon as the committee had assembled in ex;cu tive session after the regular meeting, introduced a resolution requesting the Comptroller to withdraw his resigna tion. The resolution was adopted and the Mayor appointed himself, Borough President Riegelmann of Brooklyn and Borough President Bruckner of the Eronx, as a committee who should pre? sent the request to the Comptrol.er. No scouts were dispatched this time to Comptroller Craig's stronghold in the Municipal Building and there was no announeement as to when the com? mittee would call on the Achilles of the administration. An emlssary from the Mayor's office and a member of the committee were accorcled a cool reception when they visited the Comptroller's office prior to the meeting to ascertain whether the Comptroller really intended to lock hia dcor if they should attempt .to hold the meeting in the customary place. Augustin Kelly, executive secretary to the Mayor, was dispatched first to the Comptroller's office and returned with? out having gained admittance. William 'J. Flynn, Commissioner of Public Works fot the Bronx, who represented Borough President Bruckner, followed up Kelly. The Comptroller received Commis? sioner Flvnn, but told him frankly that he declined to be interviewed by any .member of the committee or the Board of Estimate on the subject. CommissioneiNFlynn returned and re? ported to the Mayor and associates on the committee. His report was brief and unanimously adopted. "I think it advisable that the com? mittee meet here in the City Hall," said Mr. Flynn. a? Four Drown as Ice Breaks Three Fatalities in Middletown and Ono in Matawan MIDDLETOWN, N. Y., Jan. 24.?

The report asked for continuance which the House recently voted against, on the ground that it provided "a necessary means for the development of the civil air craft activities of the nation." The air mail service, the report as? serted,Shad demonstrated the practi cability of heavier than air planes for civil as well as for military uses. The vaiue of th? service, the report added, might not be appar'ent in -terms of dol? lars and cents, but would be easily seen should the nation again be called upon to mobilize its air forces The postoffice appropriation bill, in which a'ppropriations for the air mail service are embodied, is now before the Senate Postoffice Committee.
