Ai.iiant, March 21. Tho prohibition

further Involved as a result of William
H. Anderson's repeated attacks on the
war veterans In tho Assembly and tho
demand made by Col. Hansom H. Gll
lett, Republican, that tho head of the
Anti-Saloon League bo called beforo the
har of the house for explanation.
Tho assaults on Col. Glllctt's patriot
ism havo aroused moro bitterness than
any other development in tho liquor
tight Even thoso members who are In
favor of rejecting tho beer bill are
insisting that something bo done to
curb Anderson. They are now demand

mcnt and against the moderate dunk
bills ho has been force-.! Into the posi
tion of cooperating with Andcwn.
Quick to take advantage of the oppor
tunity, Anderson Is trying to convince
his following that in reality It Is he
who Is running the Assembly.
The Speaker never has approved In
any way Anderson's assaults on mem
bers of the Assembly. Those who have
been a-nalled now aio Insisting that the
Assembly, Including tho Speaker, stand
up and bo counted. Col. Glllett la ex
pected to make formal motion In the
Assembly to-morrow night demanding
that Anderson bo called before tho bar
to answer for his statements reflecting
on the soldiers.
Another Important question tho
Speaker will' be called on to decide this
week Is whether he will force a party
caucus to kill tho beer bill and forco
through the Thompson meamirc IndJrH
ing tho Volstead act. Anderson Is i'o
mandlng tho caucus and threatening the
Republican party with ruin If It does
not obey. Many of the Republicans, in
cluding the veterans nnd younger mem
bers, have declared their opposition to
the caucus. If they bolt It is regarded
as doubtful whether the Speaker can

As Matter of Political Sanita
tion, He, Adds.
William H. Anderson, in an address
In a Newburgh church, nnnounced yes
terday that he is starting out to "save
New York city from lierst;f. After re
viewing tho stand of up-Stato counties
on prohibition enforcement, Mr. Ander
son said:
"If It were possiblo for New York
city to drlbblo to liell through a beer
funnel without dragging anybody vise
down tliero are pleiitv of people who
would say, 'Let her go!'"
Instead of excommunicating tho me
tropolis, however, Mr. Anderson favored
evangelism to boost out liquor. "The
entire State, tho nation and even the
worldwide movement for social better
ment are tied up with New York city,"
he said. "Therefore, It Is necessary for
us to save the city from herself. Just as
a matter of political sanitation, regard
less of vhethcr sho has tho Intelligence
to know sho needs It or tho moral senso
to desire It.
"New York newspapers havo charged
that the Autl-Saloon Leaguo has set the
up-Stato portion of tho commonwealth
against New York city. On ono point
wo ndmlt It. When New York city, un
der the leadership of newspapers that
have neither conscience nor moral bias
and only provincial intelligence that
stops with tho eastern bank of the Jlud

of tho nation we consider it an act of
good, citizenship to set tho rest of the
Stato against New York city In that
Wood Suggests Use
Bombs by Police.
Baltimore, March 21. The jso by
police of gas bombs In instance:! such
as developed last Friday morning, when
a lono negro, barricaded in a cellar,
held at bay 200 policemen for three
hours, has been suggested by Dr. Robert
W. Wood of Johns Hopkins University
"I (should favor a lachrymatory gad,
commonly called 'tear gas,' that would
temporarily blind the person sought by
the police, spoiling his shooting aim nnd
making him helpless," Dr. Wood said.

"A plentiful mipply of gas grenades
ought to be avallablo to the police forco
at comparatively s-mall coot. However,
It should bo borne In mind that the gas
mart for war purposes was Intended to
Inflict heavy casualties, while a gas suit
able for use by a police forco ought not
to indict permanent Injury, but merely
disable temporarily.
"A sneezing gas would bo effective 1n
police work. A squeezing gn mixed with

for the former would disclose the crim

would render him temporarily helpless."
