Malone notified the Clatson avenue po lice station and Detectives McVea and Donllu were sent out. On ono side of the marblo platform on which the tall pillar Is set they found the grass crushed. They followed the trail of crushed gnuss to Hie wall and on th" sidewalk Just outside they found a trail of wet wheels. They followed the wheel marks for a blvck or two when the trail was lost. Two or threo blocks further on they found an abandoned wl'lbarrow. They b'gan a search of all the Junk shops In th neigh borhood and at noon they found the mUs- Ing eagle.

Aked, formerly of New York, astnnUhed his hearers In the First Con gregational Church to-day when he an nounced that he agreed with the rcent statement by ex-l'rcsldent Kllot of Har vaid denying the divinity of Christ. He said In part: "As to the creed of the miraculous birth of Jcsuh, let us examine tha books of tho New Testament. Mark did not speak of the birth of Jesus ; John, who wrotn mostly of tha death and ascension of Christ, did not speak of Ilia birth; l.iiko did &ay ho was of miraculous origin, but It Is conceded Luke got his Information from Matthew. "The latest Investigation shows that Matthow contradicted himself. In the New Testament version of tho tJospel ac cording to Matthew ho says that Christ was of miraculous birth. In an older manuscript whloh has been discovered and authenticated as being the work of the apostle Matthew says Joseph was tho father of Josus. "My conclusion upon this question Is that tho faith of Mark, John, Jumes and Paul Is good enough for me. It Is good enough for any Christian. Theso men say nothing about Jesus having come Into the world In a miraculous way. I prefer to stand with them. What do wo mean then by saying He was divine? it Is a question of quantity and not of quality. There Is divinity In us, but so much more lu Him that I prefer to cull Him divine. I'erhups It would bo better to speak of tho dlvlneuess or man and the divinity ot enrtst. - SENDS DINNER BY PARCEL POST. Woman Offers Complete Chicken Feast far Fonr for t'1.21. IloSTON, Feb. 1.

OPPOSITION BY WILSON Democrats Seeking llcclcetion Fear Retaliation if Tliey Don't Line Up. Washington, Feb. 1. Organized labor has started a campaign that extends to every district In the United Slates nnd is designed to force the Democratic Congress to Incorporate In one of tho pending anti trust bills b provision exempting labor organizations and farmers' associations from prosecution under the Sherman anti trust law. An Issue has thus been raised which Administration lenders acknowledge may cauc much trouble In a political way. Some leaders here say that If any one of tho pending bills reaches the White House with such an exemption tho Presi dent will promptly veto tt. Whllo Democratic leaders are disin clined to discuss the subject one has said that In a recent conference tho President expressed disapproval of the exemption j sought by labor. This was at a time wnen in" Presidents untl-trust pro gramme was being whipped Into shape by leaders In Congress, Although Samuel Compers, president of I the American Fcdt ration of Labor, has re peatedly demanded amendment to tha anti-trust laws expressly providing that they do not apply to labor, the fact was either overlooked or Ignored by Chair man Clayton and the other members ol the Judiciary Committee, who frumul the pending Administration anti-trust measures. This Is accepted as indicative of the tram- of mind of th committee men wio will handle tho trust bills In tho House If It does not reflect the attitude of the Administration toward this particular labor proposal. Ilearlnaa on Hills fjolna" On. Hearings are now In progress on the Administration ant. trust bills and organ ized labor Is preparing to move on the cointnItt'.s. Labor leaders apparently be lieve tlie Judiciary Committee will not in iorirate an exemption provision In uny of tho pending bills This Is Indicated In letters received by practically every member, of the Houto and Senate, Theso letters, written by labor men In close touch with locul po litical conditions In the various districts, call on Senators luid Representatives to stand by labor In this "emergency." The letters are by no means threatening, hut they art- phrased !n such a way ss to make it cies.i lli.it If the recipients t:ike a stand against an exemption amendment labor will r inflate. In all the l-tters menders are called uimii to mak- a reply outlining their views on the quivtlon. This ha embarrassed many Representatives, who are constantly dodging l-sues raised by labor. In the hist Conerts tho Democratic 1 tons" Incorporated mi iiiiiendiii'Ul in tin sundry civil bill prohibiting the un of any part ot a tertalu upproprl.ition for th. enforcement of tlm untl-trust law In pros ecution ngiliist labor unions or farmer's organizations, l'resldi nt T.ift vetoed th bill. The iiKsiiiuro was reenaoted und was approved by President Wilson. Conservative l-rmo:riit!c leaders insist that the President's approval eif tho sun dry olvil hill must not bo accepted us a token that ho favois exemption of any diss from prosecution under the law. They lxilnt out that the exemption car ried In the sundry civil bill vetoed by Mr. Tuft and later approved by Mr. Wilson applied only to on of the various funds mado available for trust prosecutions by the Department of Justice. It was explained when the 1'revhleut signed tho sundry civil bill with the pro vision relating to labor that Ids aiqiruv.il of tt did not commit him to the principle that any exceptions should lie made In en forcing the anti-trust laws. Ho said he signed the bill Ucauto any further delay In obtaining the money provided for the Federal departments In the sundry civil bill would work hardship. Labor Leaders Pnsslrd. Letters received from lubor leaders show that they are In thei dark as to the uttltudo of tho Administration toward this que. Uon. They approved tho uction of tlm President lu signing tho sundry civil bill last year, but are now seeking Informa tion as to why on exemption provision was not incorporated lu ono or th" other anti trust bills orfered In tho House Inst week. Tha bills In question are recognized as Administration bills prepared under di rection of President Wilson and hts legal advisers. If tlm Houso Judiciary Coinmlttt e falls to adopt an exemption amendment, as now seems assured, such an amendment Is certain to bo presented In the House when the untl-trust bills iuo called up for action. Tho light over this proposal is ex pected to be waged with great bitterness. In the absenco of a definite expression on tho ubj:t from the President, 111" pie posal might carry. Hearings will bo resumed to-moirow before tlm Committee on lnlerstato and Foreign Commerce and the Judiciary Committee em tho untl-trust bills. Joseph K, Davles, Commissioner of CoriHuatlons, Is expected to discuss the Interstate trade commission bill beforo tho former com mittee. Samuel Untermyer of Now York mav nnnear bufore the Judiciary Com mittee lu behalf of the thiee, bills lu tho custody of that committee'. " Huslness men continue to show lndlf feienco to tho anti-trust bills, Apparently few of them will appear before tho Ju dietary and Interstate Commerce com mittees unless nsked to do so. The (pies tlon of Inviting witnesses to give testi mony will be considered ut meetings of the committees to b held this week. It Is understood that tho Administra tion is fuvoruble to the committees' send ing out Invitatluns and It Is probublo that such a course will be followed. Tho lead ers do not want to present the anti-trust bills to the House without adequate hear ings, fearing that under such cirouni- i stances the measures might be uttacked on I tho ground that tho views of tlie Interests COULDN'T RESCUE YACHT CREW.J P.
