Interna! Revenue Commissioner
Urges Co-opecation of Minis
ters and Federal Agents
'THE UPLIFT OF THE HOME
NEEDS YOU NOW,' HE SAYS
Wants Each Church to Form
Vigilance Committee to Seek'
Evidence Against Violators
AW of the clergy ami the church con
tetations In the enforcement of uro
llbltlon has been requested by Daniel
C. Roper, commissioner of internal rev
time, in a letter mailed every clprgvm'an
in the country, from Washington. D. C.
Commissioner Roper asks each church
to form a sort of vigilance committee,
to seek evidence of law violations, and
report the same to the proper authori
ties As the letters are to individual
clergymen, the denominations have
Uken no official cognizance of it, leaving
it, for the rao6t oart, to the, individual
clergymen to decide.
Enforcement Now the Issue
Mr. Roper, after referring to the
action of the clergymen of America in
treating a proper point of view toward
the income tax, writes:
"You have always stood for the so
briety of manhood and the uplift of the
home. The cause of law and order nl-
ways finds in you strong champion -ship.
It needs you now. Clergymen
throughout the United States for years
have been urging that the government
'sever its partnership with the liquor
business.' After many years of con
troversy the national prohibition law is
now an accomplished fact. But the re
sults for which the clergy have so
earnestly striven the sobriety of man
hood, the supremacy of law and order
have not "been attained by the mere
enactment of a law. Only by its cn-
Ii lorcemcnt can these benehts be realized.
t "The period of controversy has
passed. We arc not now concerned in
on j- debate as to whether or not national
prohibition is the best thing for the
country. It is'now the law of tho land.
My appeal to you, therefore is not for
prohibition, nor for revenue measures,,
but" simply for the creation of strong
public support for enforcement of the
law. The public mind must be clari
fied, misunderstanding of the situation
awept away, and tho right spirit
. Must Help Federal Officers
? -.Wfour. own church- .members, of
course, will give unhesitating adherence
to the prohibition law, but it is neces
sary that iney do more. To co-ordluate
and give force and direction to their in
dividual efforts, it is strongly urged
that a committee of law enforcement be
appointed to receive all complaints of
violations of law and to lodgo such com
plaints, together with the evidence ob
tained, wth the proper authorities.
"The active support of such a com
mittee, backed by the influence of your
members, will be a very great help to
local officers federal, state and country
ia enforcing the law. Wherever any
officer faiiB in his duty, public senti
ment should secure his removal. Your
valiant leadership, and your ringing
challenge to the citizenship and the
moral sense of your church members
will be the chief Influence in creating
the right public Bpirlt in your com
munity." , As the aid of the police of all cities
in enforcing prohibition was asked bj
(he government. Director Cortelyou hns
instructed the police that they must be
just as alert as the agenta of the federal
Government to, catch violators.
Network Thrown Over City
The authorities have thrown n care
ful network of enforcement machinery
all over the city. It will be difficult for
even the most strategic Jiquor dispenser
to wriggle through without capture.'
Roy L. Dailey, assistant federal pro
hibition enforcement officer here, and
United States District Attorney Kane
ere at their desks early today iu order
to put in motion the machinery neces
sary for punishing violators of the law.
All of the agents of the Department
o' Juttico were mobilized here this
Morning by Todd Daniel. They are
workiDg with the special prohibition en
'We are receiving real assistance
irora tho polico now in enforcing "the
prohibition law," Mr. Dailey said.
Their work is not half-hearted. With
wector Cortelyou in charge they are
ware that real police work will have
lo be done. It is fortunate that we have
j1" help. Any man who has been a
ederal dicer knows the difficulties

Daughter of P,eter O'Neil, Mel-

FEARED SHE'D "MEET MEN'
Peter O'Neil, millionaire Philadel

a barbed wlro fence aroundthc rear of
his bbau"fifiil home a '"Melrose, Ph.i
under the hallucination that Uts" wife
might sneau out and meet men.
This assertion is made in a petition
filed by Mrs. Mary Donnellya married
daughter, with the Orphans' Court in
Norristown todny, asking that her fa
ther's will bo set aside. O'Neil died
nearly a year ago. leaving au estate
alued at .$1,000,000.
The millionaire testator, according to
'he petition, at the time he made his
will and codicil), in 1013 and 1017. and
'or many years before, "was addicted
to the excessive uso of intoxicating li
quors and labored under the hallucina-

Made Cash Gifts
In the codicil. Mr. O'Neil revoked the
bequest of the Melrose home, increased
the cash gift to $25,000. and left her
the income from $100,000.
Mary and Catharine, two daughters,
were given $2j,000 each absolutely.
The codicil revoked this bequest" to
Mary, and changed the bcquesMo Cath
arine to $5000 in cash and $35,000 in
trust, tho principal to revert to her at
the ago of thirty.
The origiual will gives the residue to
four sons, Jlichael, Francis, Joseph and
Arthur. The" codicil alters this beguest
also, giving Michael $S0,000 absolutely,
Arthur $5000 absolutely, plus the in
come from $75,000, with the principal
also at the ago of thirty.
The original will had provided that
the residue be distributed equally be
tween the four sons. The codicil gives
the entire residue to Joseph nnd Fran
cis. Questioned Chauffeur
Some of the dead millionaire's pe
culiarities are set forth in Mrs. Don
nelly's petition. She nvers that he was
so suspicious that -when her mother
went shopping or to church, tho chauf
feur of the family automobile was cross
questioned on their return, and made
to give minute details as to iiow much
time she had spent in different places,
the people she had met nnd conversed
with. He employed detectives to watch
his wife, and after they had been dis
missed through the intervention of a
friend of the family, he kept in constant
touch with a member of the Ogontz po
lico force. It was at this tlmo that
he caused tho barbed wire fence to
be built at the rear of his home.

Revenge for 'Tigers'1 Scratch
Paris. Jan. 17. Dechanel's elec
tion ns president of France, uftcr
forcing the retirement of M. Clem
euceau, is sweet revenge for his de
feat on tho field of honor by the
"Tiger'' twenty-six years ago.
Then, when Clemencoau was neither
a deputy nor a senator, he wrote
an article in his newspaper, La
Justice, criticizing M. Dcschanel for
an interpellation made against the
Rrisson ininistiy on the law against
M. Deschanel. offended by the
terms of the article, sent his seconds
to M. Ocmonceau, who was noted
as a duelist. Tho meu met with
swords and Deschanei received a
wound oi er the eye, which was so
severe that the seconds would not
permit the duel to coutiuue.
