Opponents of prohibition marched on
Fifth Avenue yesterday to express their
opposition to the Eighteenth Amend?
aient and to demand the repeal of the
Volstead act. The number in line was
nriously estimated from 15,000 to
If prohibition's fate had been left to
the marchers and to the approving
ipectators who thronged the line of
march from Washington Square to Six?
tieth Street, the dry r?gime would have
been ended on the spot. Empty beer
bottles held to paraders' lips, tin buck?
ets overflowing with cotton to recall
days when effervescing foam was not
unknown and placards bitterly de?
nouncing prohibition legislators and
snti-saloon workers epitomized the sen?
timent of the demonstration.
Biblical Quotations Displayed
Quotations from the Bible were dis?
played conspicuously. High above one
division was carried a colored picture
of the Lord's Supper. Beneath it was
inscribed, "Wine was used." A saying
attributed to Timothy, reading, "Use
? little wine for thy stomach's sake,'
vas held before the spectators by s
man. who, with an empty bottle poised
above his open mouth, gave a panto
. ?r.ime of one abundantly,?atisfying his
stomach. The. curious were enjoined tc
consul .their Bibles for an answer tc
die question, "Who made wine that th<
wedding feast might be merry"*
Reviewing the parado at MadisoT
Square, Mayor Hylan pronounced i
"a splendid outburst of the city's dem
ocratic spirit." For two hours thi
Mayor stood with his hat off bowini
to t'qe passing wets. Occasionally hi
was made a participant in the demon
stration to the extent of havinjr t<

a?flfce hands with carriers of enipt:
buckets or to return the salutes of th*
ccciipants of former brewery wagons
Ex-Saloon Man Hails Hylan
As the Mayor was mounting the re
viewing stand a man without an invi
tation tried to wedjre through with th
oficial party. On being stopped he ex
plained: "I belong here. I used to be
?a'oonkeeper." Turned away, h
joined the parade and gave a lust
cheer for the Mayor from the front.
Estimates ns to the number in th
parade varied. A careful count at th
reviewing stand placed the number a
20,000. Frank C. Drake, the directo
roneral of the American Libertio
League, which organized the parad?
insisted that 75,000 marchers were i

i? a telegram to Washington declare
that 100,000 was the number.

Harding Is Orator of the Dsjy
As Boys Launch 9-Ft. Rowboat
President Assists 9-Year-Old Joe Frelinghuysen and
"His Gang" to Christen Golf Ball Cruiser From
Soapbox; Pays Tribute to Boyhood
RARITAN, N. J.. July 4.--Actine as j
sponsor here to-day of a rowboatl
made by a nine-year-old boy, President
Harding: deliverod a Fourth of July
oration of a single sentence in tribute
to the ingenuity and aspirations of
American boyhood.
The diminutive craft, which inspired
the President's toast, was th? "Rari
tan," nine feet over all, conceived and
built by Joseph S. Frelinghuysen, jr.,
son of the senior Senator from New
Jersey, at whose home here Mr. and
Mrs. Harding are guests. The bank of
an artificial lake, forming a hazard
across a golf course of the Raritan
Valley Country Club, was the scene of
the launching and will be the home port
of the "Raritan" as she sails a tramp
course in search of misdirected golf
Uses Bottle of Mineral Water
Had she been the largest ocean liner
the vessel could scarcely have taken
the water with a greater show of cere?
mony. Specially constructed ways,
whose upper end rested on a soap box,
guided her down the bank. The Amer?
ican flag was in place above her stern
and, as she was loosed to begin her ad?
venturous career, the President of the
United States broke a beribboned bot?
tle of mineral water across her bows
and said:
"As a tribute to American boyhood,
who build castles in the air, who build
boats and whose achievements in the
future will build this country, I chris?
ten this boat, the handiwork of Joe
Frelinghuysen, the Raritan."
Entering thoroughly into the spirit
which prompted Joe and his young
friends to plan the ceremony, Mr. Har?
ding spoke his tribute solemnly and ap?
plauded as the boat splashed into the
water with her builder and master sit?
ting proudly amidships.
Swapa Opinions With Boya
Then the President, attired almost
like a boy, himself, in white golf cos?
tume, turned to the group of boys that
had gathered on the bank and swapped
opinions with them about the fine
points of the Raritan.
Manifestly, the President enjoyed
the launching more than any other
event on his Fourth of July program,
although previously he had been pre- ;
sented with a silver cup by the country
club and later was the central figure
at a luncheon and public reception at
the Frelinghuysen house. More than
a hundred prominent New Jerseyites
were guests at the luncheon, and dur?
ing the reception the people of Raritan
and nearby towns trouped in to pay
their respects in numbers that recalled
the "front porch" days at Marion.
For more than two hours the Presi?
dent and Mrs. Harding stood beneath
a big maple on the lawn shaking hands
and exchanging greetings with those
who filed past.
Early tomorrow morning Mr. Har?
ding will leave by train for Washing?
ton. He expects to be back at his desk
in the White House shortly after noon.
Caruso's Voice
Forever Lost,
Friends Fear
Feeling Throughout Italy
That Tenor Will Never
Sing as Before, Ship Of?
ficers from Homeland Say
Health Improves Slowly
Artist, Depressed Over Con?
dition, Doubts Appear?
ance in Opera Again
The great voice of Caruso is a thing
of the past and the te%or himself is
not improving in health as rapidly as
he had hoped for. These assertions
were inadja reluctantly and with much
regret yesterday by passengers and
ameers of the steamship President?
Wilson, which returned hero after
leaving Caruso a'-nd his family in Italy.
The feeling throughout Italy, the
passengers said, is generally pessimis?
tic relative to the restoration of
Caruso's voice. His friends and ad?
mirers are in hopes that in some mir?
aculous way lie will be the Caruso of
old, but they would not be surprised
if restoration never came to him. Cap?
tain Ettore, master of the Presidente
Wilson, a friend and fellow country?
man of the tenor, who gave Caruso
much attention on the recent run
across the Atlantic, said that the peo?
ple, while hopeful, do mot believe
Caruso will ever reach the standard of
vocal power and excellence he had
when stricken with pleurisy.
Some of the travelers said that Ca?
ruso himself had come to believe that
he will never sing again in grand opera.
Captain Charles A. Fulton, of the
United States Army Intelligence Serv?
ice, who came here hurriedly on a visit
to Washington, said he saw Caruso
shortly before he himself had embarked
for America and that the tenor was
much depressed over his enfeebled
He informed Captain Fulton that he
was not well, and with much emotion
said he did not believe he would ever
sing as weil as he had before his re?
cent illness.
According to the crew, Caruso did not
sing aboard snip at a gala concert on
the eastward voyage, as was reported.
! They said he expressed a wish to sing,
i but when the hour came he was too
weak to appear and a phonograph re?
producing his voice and concealed be
'hind two portieres was substituted.
j During the concert Caruso stayed in
his stateroom.

Duchess Bride
Of Col. Balsan
Ambassador Harvey Among
Witnesses at Marriage in
Registrar's Office; Re?
ligious Ceremony Follows
Duke's Children Present
Second Husband of Former
Consuelo Vanderbilt Is
Rich and a Sportsman
LONDON, July 4.?The Duchess of
Barlborough, ?who recently obtained a
divorce, was married here this morning
to Lieutenant Colonel Louis Jacques
Balsan, the French sportsman. It was
learned late last week that a marriage
license had been i?sued to the couple,
but this news was not received with
much surprise, as it had been under?
stood for some time that they con?
templated marriage.
Colonel Balsan is fifty-three years \
old and served during the war with
the French army as liaison officer with
the British air forces in France- He
is a member of a wealthy family and
is an ardent sportsman, having been
interested in ballooning for many
years. He once competed for the Gor?
don Bennett cup and was the first
private airplane owner in France. The
bride was formerly Consuelo Vander?
bilt, of New York.
The ceremony took place at 8:30
o'clock in the Henrietta Street regis?
trar's office. The wedding party ar?
rived in automobiles just before that
hour. The duchess was dressed in gray.
The witnesses were Ambassador Har?
vey. Brigadier General Cornelius Van?
derbilt, the bride's cousin, and Colonel
Fagalde, a distinguished French offi?
cer. The few others present included
Lord and Lady Blandford and Lord Ivor
The religious ceremony, in the Savoy
Chapel, followed immediately, after
which M. and Mme. Jacques Balsan?
as the bride prefers they be known?
! departed for France.

ROME, July 4 (By The Associated
Press.)?Sixteen persons were found
dead and fifty others wounded after an
attack by Fascisti on the town of Gros
seto, Tuscany, Friday. The Fascisti,

were fired upon from some of them.
They then began an assault upon all

?Wilson Wrote War Message
On Back Porch at Midnight
Special Dispatch to The Tribine
ATLANTIC CITY, July 4.?Presi
! dent Wilson's famous war message was
: not dictated in his office as a part of
the day's rov.Une, as has been generally
i believed, bti'i was written under un
! usual circumstances, after days and
! nights of hard thinking.
This was disclosed to-day by William
! C. Redtield, Secretary of Commerce
! in the Wilson Cabinet, as he chatted
with friends at a hotel here.
"The President had thought and
? worried days and nights over his war
1 message, but it seemed the words for
which he yearned would not come,"
said Mr. Rcdfield.
"One evening he retired, quite dis?
couraged, about 12 o'clock. Two hours
later he was awakened by the force of
his inspiration. At last he realized he
bad within his grasp thoughts hat '. ad
been eluding him. Ho switched on the
light, sat on tho aide of his bed and
jotted down stenographically the swift?
ly coming thoughts. When he had his
message well under way he put on his
bathrobe and took his pencile and
paper to the oack porch.
"About an hour later Mrs. Wilson
was awakened by the light which thj
President, had forgotten to turn off!
She looked for him and finally discov?
ered him on the porch. She inquired
solicitously about him, but the assured
her he was all right, though a little
hungry. That was enough for Mrs.
Wilson. She went to the kitchen, not
disturbing the maid, and delved into
the refrigerator. She took out some
milk and carried it to the President
with a box of crackers, and he was
grateful for her attention.
"This wonderful message, whose
strength, inspiration and beauty will
keep it alive as long as the world en?
dures, was written in the wee sine
hours with the moon shedding the only
light, while its author in a bathrobe sat
on his back porch sipping milk and
munching cracker?."

Meyer Seeks
Cost of Hylan
Press Agents
$7,000 SouvenirProgram
at Olympic Reception,
With Mayor's Picture,
Is Committee Evidence
Uplifters Called
Publicity Bureau
Early Hearing on Charge
That City's Funds Are
Used to Pay Boosters
Among the early disclosures prom?
ised by the Meyer legislative commit?
tee in connection with its investigation
of the Hylan administration is said to
be one concerning the alleged fritteriag
away of the city's money to "press
agent" the Mayor. This subject, it was
indicated yesterday, probably will be
ono of the first taken up by the com?
mittee upon the inauguration of its
hearings in City Hall to-morrow.
* Members of the committee say that
as a result of a careful inquiry they
will be able to show that from the
moment Mayor Hylan took office the
municipality's funds have been squan?
dered on various publicity enterprises
designed to popularize the Mayor and
bis administration. They point to the
small army of "Mayor's committees"
organized ostensibly for uplift and wel?
fare projects, and indicate that4 an
effort is being made to find out how
much of the city's money has been ex?
pended on these committees.
Olympic Banquet Scrutinized
A typical instance of the so-called
exploitation of the Mayor and his rule
is mentioned in connection with the
return of the American athleies from
the last Olympian games. At that time,
it is said, one of the Mayor's numerous
committees welcomed the athletics with
a banquet at Vhe Waldorf-Astoria. The
bill rendered by Oscar, covering all
"eats and drinks," was, according to in?
formation in the hands of the investi?
gators, approximately $5,000. There
was no dispute about the reasonable?
ness of this charge, and it waa paid.
The bill for printing and engraving
in connection with the affair, however,
was for more than $7,000, according to
the committee's information. The ma?
jor portion of the expense of this item
seems to have been incurred in the
preparation of a souvenir program the
most prominent feature of which was
a full page engraving of the Mayor.
This $7,000 bill for printing arid en?
graving alone is declared to have stag?
gered City Comptroller Craig, who
promptly held it up for investigation.
So far as the committee can learn the
concern that turned out the souvenir
has not yet been paid.
Among other methods of alleged ex?
ploitation of the Mayor being investi?
gated by the committee is one referred
to by members as joy-riding on the po?
lice boat John F. Hylan. The commit?
tee is convinced that the craft has
been used for little or no police work
and more recently has been employed,
they say, for taking out select parties
of the Mayor's friends for "surveys of
the harbor," "examination of port fa?
cilities" and for various other "civic
improvement" trips.
Pay Roll-Padding Charges
Members of the committee declared
yesterday that they had reason to be?
lieve that the Hylan administration has
begun a systematic loading of the city
pay roll with small-fry politicians. It
is investigating reports that the Tam
many-Hylan distriet leaders are bur?
dening the bureaus and departments
with per diem employees.
Another phase of the administration'?
activities under scrutiny of the Meyer
committee has to do with the rail?
roading through the Board of Esti?
mate during the last two months of
fat appropriations for the purchase of
obsolete ferryboats, which must in?
evitably, say tiie committee men, be
operated by the city at a big loss.

Apprehensions of Danger in Pacific
Soon May Be Dispelled, Says Harvey
LONDON, July 4 (By Th? Aaaociated Press) ?-Ambassador Hat*
vey pointed the way to world peace to-night in an address at th? Inde?
pendence Day dinner of the American Society of London, when he said:
"Already the better understanding between Great Britain and the
, United States has achieved one far reaching result of inestimable value
to the entire world. For the first time in history, the turbulent Atlantic
has become as a millpond and has practically been eliminated from con?
siderations of danger so far as naval warfare is concerned. There is
ground for good hope, moreover, that whatever apprehensions exist of
perilous possibilities on the Pacific may be dispelled sooner than is
commonly anticipated.
"When, if at all, that splendid consummation shall have been at?
tained in response to the apparently universal desire, disarmament will
follow naturally and inevitably, and peace on earth will be assured for
years at least and, it may be, forever."
Berlin Awaits
America's Next
Move in Peace
Expects Harding to Propose
Conference at Which a
Treaty Shall Be Drawn
Far From Wilson's Idea
Ambassador Looked For
Chancellor to Avoid Taking
Initiative in Program
For Renewing Relations
Special Cable to The Tribune
BERLIN, July 4.?After considerable
fluttering of the official dovecotes Gar
many finally has decided that peace with
America actually exists becauso Ger?
many declared peace with everybody
when it accented the Versailles Treaty.
However, I learn in official circles that
Germany is awaiting the next moves
from America. President Harding will
offer a peace conference, at which a
treaty will be drawn up much different
from the Wilson document. Germany
also expects America to offer to resume
ambassadorial relations.
I met Chancellor Wirth in the
Reichstag: to-day. Although peace as i
declared didn't excite Germany, it
pleased everybody, and Chancellor
Wirth thus expressed himself:
"The American Congress and Pres?
idential action declaring peace of
course pleases us immensely. Foreign
Minister Rosen and myself have talked
the matter over. We are waiting: de?
velopments. Our satisfaction and pleas?
ure are very deep."
In political circles it is understood
that ChanceHar Wirth doesn't want to
take the initiative in resuming practi?
cal relations with the United States,

BERLIN, July ,4 (By Tho Associated
Press).?American flags flew over Ber?
lin to-day for the first time since the
American declaration of war, but the
American Mission and the German
Foreign Office have not yet been for?
mally notified that Congress has con?
cluded peace. The newspapers, in the
absence of the text of the peace reso?
lution, confine their commeiit to the
hope that "there will be a speedy re?

German official circles are awaiting
the text and developments. Meanwhile
opinion in the German Foreign Office
is unofficially summed up as follows:
"An intolerable situation is ended,
but we do not know what to expect,
nor what peace conditions will be?
whether the United States will sub?
scribe to the Versailles Treaty in toto,
or at all. We are waiting to be offi?
cially apprised of the terms of the
compromise resolution and what the1
next move will be."
Some of the newspapers express the
hope that the United States immedi?
ately will take a hand in having the
penalties lifted and the Upper Silesian
question decided. Others view the sit?
uation as "a formal state of peace,
still without meaning."

Arkansas Sleeper Ends
His Nap of Three Years
Pellagra Victim To Be Told of
War's End, Prohibition and
Late News, if He Stays Awake
Speeial Dispatch to The Tribune
FORT SMITH, Ark., July 4.-Jim
Fslinger, world's champion sleeper,
ended his nap last Friday, after sleep?
ing for three years. Jim was sitting
up to-day in his room at the county
hospital, talking to a few friends and
relatives. He also talked over the tele?
phone to a friend for the first time
since he sank into a stupor.
Eclinger is apparently gaining
strength and his chances of recovery
appear good. He was a sufferer from
p< llagra when he came to the hospital
tight years ago. His wife died of the
disease, but his children recovered.
When he sank into slumber his appe?
tite remained with him and his color
appeared normal. His eyeballs moved
from time to time, but he was appar?
ently unconscious.
When he awoke his mental faculties
apparently were normal, and, aside
from weakness, he appeared in gooi
health. In about a week Eslinger will
be told of America's part in the World
War, prohibition and other events for
the first time, provided he remains

LONDON, July 4 (By The Associated
Press).?Diplomatic representatives of
more than thirty foreign governments
were guests to-night at the annual
Independence Day dinner of the Ameri?
can Society of London. Ambassador
Harvey was the guest of honor.
Lord Lee of Fareham, First Lord of
the Admiralty, toasting the guest, re?
ferred to Mr. Harvey as "a foreign
envoy to whom the muzzle of diplomacy
had not been obtrusive." "Therefore,"
he said, "both Britain and America
could expect from him open and frank
comment upon Anglo-American rela?
Referring, in his reply, to the revolt
of the American colonies, Ambassador
Harvey declared:
"Whether the territory composing
the Unitod States could have been re- I
tained is wholly speculative. But one I
fact is certain?if George III had issued j
a proclamation even approximating in
eloquent sincerity and appealing force
that uttered the other day by George
V in his faithful endeavor to reconcile
a nation there would have been no

Won't Measure Money Against Men
"The two men swirling down the |
Niagara River did not profit by^drop-j
ping their paddles to quarrel over the ?
distance to the falls?they succeeded
only in making their fate certain. Lee
us, in a position hardly less perilous, I
not emulate their idiotic example."
The Ambassador said, however, that
the staggering present cost and the ?
great price must be paid by the next
generation from those countries which
had been so pitilessly denuded of the
flower of their youth, who were relied
, upon to carry on.
"Nothing could be further from my
l thought or more repellent to the in
i stinct of any American than to measure
j money against men," he went on. "My
sole purpose is to win fair considera?
tion from any who may have over?
looked the fact that the United States,
along with Europe, has her full share
of national burdens to bear for scores
i of years, in addition to her grief at the
incalculably greater loss of those who

Mast Remove Misapprehensions
Ambassador Harvey declared that
the mutual helpfulness which all de?
sired could not be realized until two
grave misapprehensions had been re?
moved, one of which pervaded Europe
respecting the United States and the
other permeated the United States as
to Europe.
"The two combined appear to con?
stitute the chief barrier to full and
effective play of co-operation based
upon confidence and understanding,"
said the Ambassador. "I find in Europe
the common impression that the United
States, alone among the nationa of the
world, is to-day a land of milk and
honey whose people not only are uni?
versally prosperous, though recalci
trantly discontented, but are rich be?
yond the traditional dreams of avarice.
You have only to supplement the fancy
with a suspicion, which I find not
wholly lacking, that all this opulence
and this happiness are direct results
of the great war, to account for the
wholly natural sense of resentment.
No Good from Controversy
"What are the facts? Did the United
States really profit from the war to
such a degree as to make the lives
she sacrificed seem to the cynical r.nd
sordid mind relatively insignificant?"
Ambassador Harvey proceeded to cite
the tremendously increased national
debt, the Congressional appropriations
for 1920, and the heavy income taxa?
tion. He added:
"In dollars, the cost to America of
her participation in the war, when fi?
nally computed, will fall not so very
fir short of the entire indemnity upon
Germany. I make no comparisons.
There has been too much of that al?
ready. Surely no good can come now,

DUBLIN, July 4.?Eamort de
Va?era, president of "the Irish Re?
public," held a conference to-day at
the Dublin Mansion House with fotrr
representatives of Ulster which may
prove to be epochal in Irish history.
At the close of the conference the
Tribune correspondent was given to
understand that complete accord was
reached by the Ulster and Sinn F?in
leaders and that De Valera will meet
Premier Lloyd George in the discus?
sion the latter requested to solve the
Irish difficulties.
This conference, however, prob?
ably will not be held until after De
Valera has first consulted with Sir
James Craig, the Ulster Premier.
Although the Sinn F?in leader has
deferred his reply to Lloyd George's
invitation, his final acceptance is
virtually certain. To-day, it ap?
pears, good work was done for the
ideal of peace in Ireland.
An official report of the morning's
conference, issued this afternoon,
stated only that Lloyd George's invi?
tation to a peace parley had been dis?
cussed and certain agreements had
been reached, after which the confer?
ence adjourned until Friday.
Draped With American Flags
The Mansion House, in which thev
representatives ot Nortn and South
Ireland met, was draped with tho Stars
and Stripes in accordance with the
Sinn F?in proclamation directing that
official honors be paid the American
flag throughout Ireland on Independ?
ence Day.
There was a lull in the guerrilla war?
fare which has broueht a reign of ter?
ror tnroughout Ireland, and Dublin
enjoyed unusual peace to-day. The ac?
tivities of the crown forces and the
republican army both had been sus?
pended by tacit agreement and British
troops were not in evidence around tho
Mansion, House, where Metropolitan
police kept order. Tue crowd was not
large, considering the fact that this
was De Valera's first public appear?
ance since his return from America.
The Sinn F?in leader showed little
trace of his months as a fugitive when
he arrived, and he was enthusiastically
cheered as his taxicab drew up at the
Mansion House. His only colleague in
the conference was Arthur Griffith,
founder of the Sinn F?in movement.
The four Unionist members of the con?
ference were Earl Middleton, Sir Mau?
rice Dockrell, Sir Robert. Woods und
Arthur Jameson. Among them they
represented the land-owning class, the
university and the commercial inter?
ests of Northern Ireland.
So paradoxical is the Irish situation
now that conservative gentlemen list*
ened in patience while the crowd,
plentifully sprinkled with ti'ny Ameri?
can flags, sang the "Soldiers' Song," a
rebel air. It had not been sung openly
in Dublin for a year.
Agree Partition Is Dangerons
DUBLIN, July 4 (By The Associated
Press).?The members of the confer?
ence were reticent regarding what took
place at the meeting, but points of
agreement were reached on the finan?
cial question and the disadvantages of
Popular sentiment is hopeful of
peace. This was voted by the Lord
Mayor in a speech at a meeting of the
Dublin Corporation after the confer?
ence, in which he said he was breaking
no confidence in declaring that much
goodwill would come of it.
In a statement to The Associated
Press to-day an important official, in ?
touch with all sides of the situation,
asserted that the government was pre?
pared to make large concessions, the
far-reaching effect of which Mr. De
Valera would appreciate. He added
that fears that Mr. De Valera would be
hampered by physical forces wera
The view is entertained here that
Sir James Craig's absence from th?
conference may be even advantageous
to the present negotiations, since any
concessions necessary from Ulster
might be made by the Ulster Premier
in London esier than in Dublin. ThU
view, however, is not shared by the
members of the conference, who would
have preferred that all Ireland should
be represented.
An exciting incident occurred after
the conference. A large republican
flag decorated with American emblema
hanging from a window in Dominick
| Street was removed by soldiers. Ai
i girl secured the flag and escaped?
! Later the flag was hung from i. rop?
j across th? street. Auxiliary polic?
: climbed to the roof and cut the rope.
: Wl en the flag fell it was seized by
| watchers, but wa3 recaptured by th?
! auxiliaries. A shot was iired during
j the confusion and the girl was severely
1 wounded.
De Valera to Greet Smuts
LONDON, July 4 (By Associated
Press)?General Jan Christiaan Smuts,
Jfremier o? the Union o? South Africa,
will arrive in Dublin to-morrow, where
he will be met by Eamon de V'alera and
other Irish ?eauers. This official an-,
nouncement was made in Dublin to?
night, according to a Central New*
Di--nteh from that citv.
The visit to Ireland of General Smot2
will not be official. He is not an emis-?
