U-iai (9 Tni Sex and New Tok Hduus
V7ashincton, Juno 7. The prohibi
tion amendment to tho Federal con
itltutlon and tho Volstead enforcement
act were upheld to-day by the United
States Supreme Court Tha decision
weeps aside almost tho last hope of
the wets. The court's action mcan3
that the bono dry law la established
firmly as the rule of the nation.
Sale of any beverage containing one
i half of one per cent or more of alcohol
is forbidden In every State In tho
Union regardless of statutes adopted
in the defence of State rights. Such
measures as have been passed by New
Tork, New Jersey, Rhode Island and
other States are nullified. Thn court's
ruling, given after three months of
egal attacks on prohibition, ls com
plete victory for the Government and
he dry forces.
Sustaining tho amendment the court
jlcd that prohibition Is a subject
which may be dealt with properly ln
lie constitution and does not In any
nay conflict with other articles in that
document. Hardly had tho opinion
been read when counsel for" the wets
aeclared they would file petitions for
shearing on all the seven cases In
volved. Sir. Justice Van Devanter gave the
decision of tho court, which, on the
basic question Involved that of up
holding prohibition was unanimous.
Tlie majority opinion dealt only with
an announcement ortne decree cover
.n; the actual litigation of the seven
ascs. and, contrary to precedent, did
'yiot set forth the reasoning of tho court
n arriving at Its decision, cruet jus
t.ce 'White stated he regretted the
ourt had not seen fit to outline the
s'eps leading up to Its decision.
Three Ilsntlntt Voices.
Usttces McReynolds. Clarke and Mc
Ker.na filed separate opinions, dissent
'ig to some parts of the majority de
ilon. The two former did not dissent
'-om the decree. It was from Justice
V 'Kenna's words that the wets found
heir chief solace. He questioned tho
to-srse taken by the court In withholding
rom the public Us reasoning and sup
oortmg the rights of States to regulate
enforcement of prohibition. An express
and implied grant to the States Is con
tained In the phrase "concurrent power"
and he Insisted that the States should
cave "uniform, united, harmonious and
oncoruant action with the Government
n enforcement"
In his stand Justice McKenna prac
tically reaffirmed the position of the
minority of the Judiciary committee In
t report on the Volstead act. Leaders
o' the wets and drj's were present when
decision was given and immediately
f'irtrer declared they would try to
f r.d some new angle from which they
'itht attack the law.
Ml question of the right of Congress
io interpret the constitutional provision
f the prohibition clause halving now
Vn determined, It Is tho prevailing be
' here that the liquor Issue will bo
rne a big factor In politics. The fight
I' te transferred to the field where
li nets and drys will battle for the
iftion of representatives friendly to
one side or the other.

Anti-Jewish Cry Raised
in Austrian Capital
yiENNA, June 7. Posters of
n violent nnti-Scmitic character
appeared all over the city Sun
day. One aeries requested
Gentiles to join leagues for the
elimination of Jews from the
business and official life of the
country and for the expulsion of
non-Austrian Jews. Other
posters, signed by the Herman
officers' association, demanded
that the army bo freed of Jews.
This association has planned a
.great demonstration for to-night,
and the Socialists have instructed
the authorities to be prepared
for trouble.

This action by. America is desired by
'
tho Allies to enable them to reach an
agreement regarding the distribution
of tho indemnity, recent detflopments
in the United States having raised the
question ln the mind of tho Entente
whether America would claim her
share of the German payments.
The Idea advanced In official circles
here Is that if tho United States re
fuses to bo represented or to claim a
share of the indemnity the Allies would
be Justified ln working out a plan In
which America would not be Included.
In other words, they would give pri

Apparently the Republican National
Convention and the opinion of Franco
American newspaper correspondents
that a Republican victory at the polls
ls more or less certain are causing the
Allies to reenvlsage the Indemnity prob-
lem, with special reference to the Knor
resolution, which is accepted here as
embodying Republican Ideas.
An editorial ln the Temps, Inspired by
the French Foreign Office, called the at
tlon of the Allies to the Important bear
ing which political events In the United
States have on this problem, and to the
apparent variance of the Republican In
demnity attitude with the policy of
President Wilson, who at a meeting
with Premier Lloyd George and Pre
mier Clemenceau on April 28, 1919,
waived tho American reparation claim.

WntchlnRr Republican Platform.
French official eyes now are fixed on
the Republican platform utterances to
find In them some clue to the future
policy of the Republicans regarding
reparations.
Italy Is another trouDiesome lacior in
the situation, as she has now Informed
the Allies that she is hot willing to take
7 ner cent, of the reparations due ner, as
her expenditures were greater than those
of Belgium. She Insists that unless her
claims are granted she will deal Inde

There is no question, of course, but
that Secretary Baker will grant Per-:
ehing's request for retirement. It Is ,
plain from the letter, together with the i
attitude of Mr. Baker, that there has
befn such an understanding.
Several months ago. when the Gen
eral's name was being used In connec
tion with the Nebraska Presidential
preference primary, an unofficial an
nouncement was made that upon his re
tirement from the army he would enter
business In Lincoln, the city he now calls
home. So far, however, he has not
himself Indicated the nature of his fu
ture activities.

He walked out on the stage arm tn

Despite the numbers and the pressure

Chicago, June 7. There will be no
battle on the convention floor over the
treaty plank of the Republican plat
form. An inner group of the Repub
lican leaders, representing all fac
tions on tho resolutions committee,
met this afternoon In the room of
Senator Kellogg (Minn,), one of the
mild reservation leaders, and agreed
upon the plank which will undoubt
edly be approved by the full commit
tee and by the convention.
Senator Lodge (Mass.), the floor
leader, wus present at the conference,
along with Senator Crane (Mass.),
Senator Lenroot (Wis.). Senator
Smoot (Utah) and Senator Borah
(Idaho). Senator Watson (Ind.), who
ls slated to be chairman of the resolu
tions committee, was unable to at
tend, because of important confer
ences elsewhere, but his views were
known and his approval was assured
The plank Is virtually that drafted ln
tho rough by Senator Lodge, with the
assistance ot Senator Knox (Pa.) in
Washington and modified slightly by
Will H. Hays, chairman of the Repub
lican National Committee.
Three Principal Points.
It contains three cardinal points as
follows :
I. DtnuicIatUin of the Treaty jf
Versailles,, lncjudlns the LeagU" of
Nations covenant as presented to
the Senate by President Wilson.
2. Indorsement ot the action ot the
Republicans of the Senate tn pre
venting the ratification of the Wilson
treaty.
3. Indorsement of the Knox plan
for an International court o( arbitra
tion. To avoid trouble with the bitter end
Senators, led by Hiram Johnson and
Borah, it was decided to avoid specific
indorsement of the Lodge reservations.
In Its flnul form the plank may be con
strued by the bitter enders as voicing
disapproval of the entire leage covenant,
whether protected by Americanizing
reservations or not, and yet it docs not,
repudiate the action of the mild Repub
bicans who voted for the Lodge reser
vations. The i.latform will pledge the party to
continue Its attitude of opposition to
ratlflcatloVi ot the treaty as submitted.
This declaration is In effect borrowed
from the Indiana platform. But from
this on there ls a divergence. The
Indiana plank proceeds to pledge tho
Republican party to sustain the doctrine
of Monroe. The national plank will ex
pand this to Include also a pledge tu
maintain tho policy of Washington
toward foreign relations. That Is, the
Monroe doctrine excludes European
countries from America, while the Wash
ington doctrine of the farewell address
withholds America from European en
tanglements.
Senator Borah (Idaho) Is credited
with proposing the modification of the
Indiana plank which made It acceptable
to himself, Senator Johnson and the
rest of the treaty irrecondlables.
Senator Borah, however, declared at
the time that he was not among those
consulted, and he subjected the Indiana
formula to a scrutiny that was nowise
predisposed In Its favor. At the end he
sent word that !f a clause could be In
serted that would Include In It a reaf
firmation of the Washington policy he
could accept the plank.

Senator Borah said to-day he would be
satisfied with this statement of tlie
policy, and admitted his understanding
that all elements were united on it.
The fact that this delicate subject has
been brought to such satisfactory de
termination was given to-day as one
reason why Senator Lodge probably
would be made temporary as w ell as
permanent chairman. There Is nc longer
any particular occnslon for a demand
on the part of the Irrecondlables for the
measure of recognition which they
claimed at a time when there wns a pos
sibility of a contest over this plank.

The necessity of making a clear, un

ot a plank that is long and rather ex

OLD GUARD IS WATCHFUL
All Eyes on Lodge's Kcynota
Address and Possibilities
in the Convention.
Bu a Staff Correspondent, of The Sum IM)
New Yoik Hqulo.
Chicago, June 7. One real flush ot
news, a shaft of sunlight ln the fo?,
has broken through tho mlnigo mill
the mystery of the- Republican Na
tional Convention preliminaries.
It is this: The Old Guard, weak
ened nml fearful ns it stands, hits
determined to put over Frank O.
Lowden. If that be humanly possible.
Fuillug In this Messrs, Smoot, Crane,
Hert, and Wntson, etc., plan to sum
tuons a committee of twenty repre
sentative Republicans nnd ask them to
agree upon a candidate.
In other words, the Old Gunrd.
weakened by tho illness nnd absence
of strong headed stnlwarts, even di
vided unions themselves, are forming
a hollow square with Lowdcti in N
centre.
For One Last Grantl Stand.
With their faces to the foe nnd thenx
is something admirable ln the pluck
of these harassed leaders they plan
one last fight, knowing that the odds
are Ave to one against them.- They
plan one ultimate battle, nnd then, If
It must be, they will give in nml
labor meekly with the Liberals anil
the middle of the roitdertownrd the
selection of n candfdnte io can win.
The Old Gunrd prays for Lowden
or darkness. If the excellent Gov
ernor of Illinois must be bl-.iten to
his knees, must collapse underth9
burden of thnt Missouri dough bug.
must, in short, be eliminated lecaus
of the shuddering fear of what the
Democrats would say from ptump to -stump
about Pullman car porters and
Pullman passes to the White House,
then darkness a sliort recess for con
ference nnd whispering would bo
welcomed.
Out of thnt might come something
vnltinble to the conservn fives, for If
they enn't get the whole loaf they will
take a slice. That proposed nominat
ing committee of twenty, an unheard
of thing ln Republican conventions,
planned ns it ls, has Its opportunities
for such subtle ones ns Senator Smoot
of Utah nnd Murrny Crane of Bnck
Bny, not to speak of tlie unctuous
Watson.
However, the Idea is to name tha
committee sincerely and representa
tively and to abide honestly by Its de
cision If It can reach a decision.
