From thr Clyd* to the Adriatic

The intellectuals, the leaders of
big business, art preoccupied with
world problems that have inevitably

the masses are interested only in
getting a better deal from capital

Th** consequence is an enervating
atmosphere of nervousness and irri

ing attacked daily. The Nationalist
*re?* a reuses him of weakness in
the councils of the Big Four and of
exercising a more rigorous censor
ship than that of war times. The
labor and Socialist press on the
other har i denounce him for not
dealing with the claims of the
workers during one of the worst

With 50-50 Plan Included
The District appropriation bill,

by the House and Senate today.
This bill, which is vital to Wash

who asked that no action be taken
until the report of the conference

its supply of liquor.
Attorney Robert 1. Milier. represent
ing ten defendants, all carged with
violating one of the three prohibition
laws, will ask that the papers against
them be quashed on the ground' that
there exisis no more law upon which
they could be arraigned.
Acting upon the theory that this
contention is true, the District oranch i
o fthe Police Court will have no ?rore
jurisdiction in liquor cases. The new
law treats only of the manufacture
and sale of liquor. It says nothing m !
regard to the transportation of in-;
toxicants. The penalty it carries for
persons convicted of violating the law
is one that can be administered only 1
in the United States branch of toe

in Ireland can only be attained by a

the provisions of the league of na

The debate was started by Senator i

which the Irish people might gain i

Anticipated, Bureau
Heads Declare.
Lamentations over the report that
several thousand government clerks 1
would lose thtir posiUons today
were met last night by Paul F
Myers, chief clerk of the Treasury
Department, who declared that per
haps as many as 2.000 would be
added to the rolls of that depart
ment within the next two months.
In each of the cases clerks were
supposed to be dropped through
lack of appropriations, bureau's of
ficials denied that any of their
clerks would be dismissed or even
laid off. In some cases it was ad
mitted that transfers would be nec
essary. but little inconvenience to
the indiviual clerk is anticipated at
present.
Myers said the increase will be prin
cipally In the Federal farm loan bu
reau, the auditor's department and the
office of the commissioner of internal
revenue. A slight increase is also ex
pected in the bureau of War Risk In
surance. Many clerks dropped from I
other departments will be absorbed In

BANKERS BEHIND

BORAH
Taft and League to Enforce
Peace Assailed as Allied
To Interests.
HITCHCOCK REPLIES
Society of Nations Idea Is
Characterized by Sen. Fall
As "Unequal Alliance."
i International banking: corpora
} tions, with headquarters in Wall
! street, are the real backers of the
j league of nations. Senator Borah
j declared in the Senate yesterday in
a speech replying: to attacks by ti
nancial interests on Senators who
oppose the league.
The purpose of the international
bankers, the Senate said, is to make
untold millions by exploiting: the
natural resources of Europe.
The League to Enforce Peace, of
which former President Taft is
president, was denounced by Sen
ator Borah as an ally of the bank
ing interests.
"The propaganda which the
ioagu: is distributing throughout
the country." Senator Borah de
clared. "has attacked Senators who
opposed the league of nations ana
these attacks are inspired by the
bankers who want to use the league
for their own purposes in Europe."

Drinking of intoxicating liquor

Noah was the first man history

But Noah may have been a very

The Phoenicians got drunk a
couple of thousand years before
Christ. And both the Phoenicians
and Egyptians claimed the gods
founded their oldest cities, and;
their race could boast an antiquity
of 30,000 years!
Maybe drinking was the vogue
then. Prehistory man a couple of

War-Ume prohibition cannot be ef

es additional enforcement legislation,
the House Judiciary Committee de
clared yesterday In its report on the
| prohibition enforcement bill.
I "That such a statute cannot be ef
fectively enforced without additional
remedies has been abundantly dem
onstrated by the experience of States
j and committees where it has been
i tried." the report stated.
; "Both the Attorney General and the
! Secretary of the Treasury, who are
; charged with this enforcement, believe
some legislation is imperative."
: The report also revealed that the
majority of the committee believed
i "there is a fair chance war prohibi
tion may last until constitutional pro
hibition takes effect in January of
J next year."
, "In view of the unsettled eondi
I tions," the report says, "it is difficult
j lo guess when demobilisation will be
j complete. With an army of more
j than 1.000.000 men still in the service,
we are clearly on a war footing. The
peace army, as fixed by law. Is only
175,000 men."
