EVENING LlflmiKR PHILADELPHIA. WftDftESDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1915, iUm COMMISSION'S . SCOPE AND AIMS TOLD Vast Importance to Business of New Federal Body Ex plained by'Oflldnl. timV YOnK, Feb. 17For the first time the plans and scope of the new Fed eral Trade Commission were explained liefe today by Joseph F. Davles, United States Commissioner of Corporations, who poke before the Merchants' Association of New Yolk. Although the trade com mission law was one of the most Impor tant mensures of tho Administration pro gram, little has been heard of It since Its passage by Congress. It affects every business, creat or small, which extends beyond Slate or national boundaries, ex cepting that of banka and common car riers, Speaking on the topic "Itecent Trust Legislation," Mr, Davles said In part: "In the course of time there will be available fqr the Federal Trade Commis sion a large amount of Information col lated, digested and Interpreted as to the whole field of Industry In the country. This agehcy also Is available In the pub lic Interest In Investigation of the anti trust lawn. "Tho commission Is charged with the further duty of Investigating trade condi tions In foreign countries with reference to their effect upon our export trade. It is contended that to extend our foreign mnrlpt I la nnKBHiini lha( Knmtittiflt Iftli ' be permitted amonc the smaller manufac turers and exporters of this country to compete with combinations In foreign Re countries. What Is needed for the guid ance ot legislation Is exact Information.' The speaker said the trado commission probably would be consulted by the De partment of Justice In makln'g recom mendations relative to the manner in which corporations may adjust their busi ness. The quasi-Judicial functions of the Fed eral Trado Commission will be exorc'sed In passing upon violations of tho Clayton act, he said. XI. S. BLOCKADE PROTEST IS PRAISED IN FRANCE PAIUS, Feb. 17. America's reply to Germany's blockade notlllcatton has brought forth a chorus of praise from the principal writers In the French press. Even Georges Clcmcnceau, who hitherto has been disposed to criticise President "Wilson, says the President has spoken tho words the American people expected fn such a way that Germany has no al ternative but to back down. Gabriel Hanotaux says In the Figaro: 'The American note to Germany Is an act of high historic Initiative and the first step toward the Inevitable participation of neutrals In the great events which are dividing the world. President Wilson wa obliged to pass from discussion to action. What do the measures mentioned In the note mean but that American warships will fall upon German submarines attack ing American ships In total disregard of America's sovereign rights? Either Ger many can give In or she can disregard Washington's note and go on with her plan to force England to capitulate. Then President Wilson could not recede from his position." The proposal made by Count von Bern fctorTf the German Ambassador to the United States, that Germany would with draw Its blockade order If the Import of food was permitted by England arrived too late for comment, but the newspapers caption the announcement, "Official Ger man Blackmail." THEY RAN AWAY TO WED Henry C. Brown, Jr., and Miss Booth at "Gretna Green." Word was received here today that Henry C. Brown, Jr.,- son of Henry C. Brown, advertising manager of tho Victor Talking Machine Company, and Miss Kvelyn V. Booth, daughter of Benjamin Booth, head of Benjamin Booth & Co., manufacturers, were married In Elkton, Md,, yesterday. A dispatch from Elkton said that the bridegroom had difficulty convincing the "Gretna Green" authorities that he was of age and that the license was refused on that ground, but Brown showed frlenJs In this city both the license and the cer tificate today, The young couple took advantage of the visit of .Mr. and Mrs Brown, Sr to New York, where Mr. Brown is attending a meeting of ad vertisers, to get married. The bride groom's home Is at 1721 Memorial avenue and the bride's at 1913 Venango street. JEWELS HID IN STOCKINGS Police Find Diamond. Rings and Gold Watch ort Prisoner.

Accusations of attempted bribery and repeated Intimidation were brought today against the Pennsylvania Osteopathic So ciety by Dr. O. J. Snyder, president of tho State Hoard of Osteopathic Examiners, In answer to the charges brought by the sot clety that 1(11 licensed prnctloner-, In cluding Doctor Snyder, do not hold diplo mas from legally Incorporated colleges, and therefore nro not entitled to practice In this State. Doctor Snyder said the present movo to obtain from the Attorney General a writ of mandamus rerjulrlng the State to re voke the licenses Is but the last In h series of attempts since 19OT to force the Examiners to Issue licenses to those not qualified Under tho present law. At that time. Doctor Snyder ald the secretary of the society called on him and offered to give him $5000 If he would use his Influence to chnnge the law to admit tne 1C5 mem bers of the society. Dr, Snyder admitted that the Philadel phia College and Infirmary of Osteopnthy Is not Incorporated In this State, but that Is due, he said, to the fact that the In stitution does not hold property valued nt t500,(no, as required by the law for Incor poration here. Doctor Snyder says the college Is Incorporated In New Jersey and has a four-year mrdlcnl course accredited by the Hoard of Regents of New York, a rating denied 70 out of 150 medical schools. Ills own college, the Northern Institute of Osteopathy, was Incorporated under the laws of Minnesota until It consolidated with the parent school In Klrksvlllc, Mo., which Is incorporated there. None of the members of tho society could bo found who would discuss the case. 14 VESSELS FROM HERE MUST PAifc WAR ZONE Only One Flying American Flag. Must Face German Submarines.
