BALTIMORE. \lrl., May 20.?Th?
ampaifcn to make Baltimore city and
the wet counties or ine state ury mhs
Itfltun. A definite plan was outlined
at a meeting: of the Anti-Saloon l,eague
this week and a committee of 100. composed
of business and professional men.
was named to direct the fight. The first
canvass of strength will he made tomorrow.
when "information cards" will
he passed out in the churches and
signed by those who care to do so. This
card asks four questions: "Are you in
favor of an active campaign to vote
Baltimore dry?" "Will you vote for a
dry Baltimore?" "Will you use your
influence to secure other votes for a
dry Baltimore?" and "Will you assist
in the campaign financially?' In the
counties the league proposes to form
"dry neighborhood clubs" for the purpose
of doing personal work among
Opponents Not Well Organized.
The anti-prohibition forces are not
well organized at this time and appear
to lack a leader virile enough to direct
a hot campaign against the amendment.
This being presidential election
year, the regular politicians, who in
the past have handled the saloon question
at the polls, have other work on
their hands. There is no gainsaying
the fact that the wet forces are scared,
and badly scared, over the outlook.
A movement to establish In every
county of the state a branch of the Association
for the Prevention and Relief
"f Tuberculosis started this week.
Howard county was visited as the
starting point, and it is the plan of
Alden Anderson, who is directing the
mu* e men i. iu s?j?cnu ft vtectt hi
county, ending tlie periods with organization
meetings. Headquarters for the
branch associations will be at the county
The health department has reached a
decision that physicians and mid wives
who fail to report births shall be punished.
For years the birth records of
the city have been most Incomplete,
and at the last session of the legislature
a law was passed making it compulsory
that all births be reported and
providing a penalty for failure to so
Increase in Export Business.
The export business at this port is
experiencing an unprecedented boom
and the members of the chamber of
commerce aie urging the i ail roads to
erect more elevators. The grain dealers
assert that the congestion on the
railroad lines at the present time is
such that the roads will be compelled
to enlarge the facilities at this port It
is pointed out by grain men that 91,000.000
bushels of grain were handled
through this port last year, making it
second only to New York as a grain
exporting center. Prominent members
of the chamber assert that this volume
of business could be increased if tlie
tailroads will provide more storage facilities.
Movement to Boom Gen. Wood.
Plans are under way in this city for
the organization of a Leonard Wood
I-eague to boo to the army man for the
republican presidential nomination.
Robert Burton, who was the secretary
of the progressive party here, this
week received a letter from John A.
Stewart, chairman of the New York
committee backing Wood, in which it
was stated that the general would b
supported strongly in both the republican
and progressive conventions at
Chicago and that Wood's name would
be placed before the convention by distinguished
orators. Mr. Burton alsc
stated that he had learned from authoritative
sources that Col. Roosevelt
would no? accept the nomination by a
small majority, and that in case he
does not receive the degree of support
he considers necessary he will work in
liebalf of Gen. Wood i 11 preference
either to Hughes or Root.
