Thousand* of persons In the District

unconscious violation of the law. Rep
resentative Igoc. democrat, of Missouri
asserted during debate In the House on
;the pro;?osed appropriation for employ-,
i merit of government agents to enforce
the law.
There art* in the T'nited States today
| about ten million persons who liave vio
lated the law, Mr. Igoe said, and gave
:a summary of lu?w farmers having cider
and others having a formula for making
I beer* wine or brandy are really vlolat- '
'ir.g the law. !
How I,nw In Violated.
Ilf said, in part:
"Any farmer who has cider containing I
in excess of one-half of 1 per cent of
alcohol and which acquired this excess
either naturally or artificially since
January 17. 1!C?>. is guilty.
"Any f.trmer who has rider in excess
of one-half of l per cent of alcohol in
any place other than his home, even
though acq lired prior to January IT.
and which he has not reported to the
commissioner, is guilty.
"Any housewife who has made any
kind of a beverage since January 17
containing more than one-half of 1 per
cent is guilty.
"Any one who makes beer in his home
containing one-half of 1 per cent of
alcohol or more is guilty.
"Iwight here let me say that there arc
] thousands of people here in the District
v%ho are making beer in unconscious vio
lation of the law. I am told that the
; demand for yeast is hard to supply,
i raisins are unobtainable and that patent
(stoppers and capping machines for bot
tles are being purchased as fast as the_\
'can be supplied.
| 'Any one who has an int<0icating
, beverage anywhere save in his home
i and has not reported it to the com
missioner is guilty.
" \ n\ one who has in his possession
i any formula or substance designed
or intended for use in makin g beer J
j or wine or brandy is guilt>.
"Any one who carries a drink, even. !
; from his home and from a. supplx
? he may lawfully have is guilty.
Hot-Water Bottle* ??in Had.**
S *1 r?ad yesterday that a man in
! Virginia was arrested for having on
j his person a hot-water bottle full of
I whisky. 1 suppose the inspectors
kwill now have to inspect all the hot - <
| water bottles in the country. This
? dangerous perversion of the use of
I the hot-water bottles must stop. Per
j haps it might be well to make it a
j crime to have a hoUwater bottle any
> whert* except in one s home. I shall
have to talk to my friend from Min
nesota i Mr. Volstead) about this.
! "Any one who gives anothei a drink
: except in the home of the giver is
| gui.ty.
j "Any one who buys a drink is as
guilty as the seller
"I ask whether it is necessary in
the enforcement of prohibition to
brand as criminals millions of farm
i ers laborers and citizens in every
| walk of life who have done nothing ?
j in itself harmful to themselves or j
; to others and whose only offense con- j
| sists in following the customs and I
| practices of a lifetime?
| 'Purely it was not in th^ minds
j of the frariers of the amendment :
I that this Congress would make a j
; felon of a farmer who made cider j
for his family and friends, or a !
I housewife who made wine in the j
| home, or the workingman who would ;
drink a glass of beer.
"I venture to say that if the Vol- j
stead act could have been presented I
j to the legislatures of the various I
j states at the time they were called .
! upon to ratify the constitutional I
j arneiidmen not a state in the Union !
; would have ratified the amendment.
1 ' There are so many more of these I
drastic and unreasonable provisions !
! that I think I am safe in saying that
j since this law went into effect it
lias been violated to such an ex
I lent that if the law was strictly en
i forced there vtou.d be more of the
! adult population of the T'nited States
I in jail than out of .iail.
"1 believe this law should be re
j pealed and a sensible constitutional
; enforcement measure passed."

Stubborn Opposition Develops
When Measure Is Called
Up is Senate.
The House dyestuffs bill met stub-'
born opposition when it was called up
I in the Senate yesterday and prospects
of a long fight developed. After de
bating the measure for four hours,
the Senate resumed consideration of
the civil service retirement bill, con
tinuing that measure as the unfinish
ed business. The dyestuffs bill, re
garded by many of the senators as an
emergency measure, will be called up
again at the eaTliest opportunity.
Senator Kenyon, republican. Iowa,
characterized the dye bill as "most
unusual in its application of I he pro
tective tariff." while Senator Borah, re
publican. Idaho, predicted that the bill
might require as much debate as the
peace treat>
Necessity for early passage of the
r bill was urged by Senator Freling
huvsen, republican. New Jersey, who
said the President even had seen fit
to recommend such legislation to pro
tect the American dye industry from
While favoring the bill. Senator
Poindexter. republican. Washington,
opposed its consideration until some
kind of an understanding could be
reached as to other tariff bills af
fecting magnesite. surgical instru
ments and other things. He accused
the finance committee in ordering a
favorable report upon magnesite and
then temporarily withdrawing its re
port with "most flagrant discrimina
tion atid favoritism" and asked what
["influence" had been exerted upon it.
I Senator Smoot, republican, VtaTi.
: said if he had his way there would be
! a complete revision of the tariff, but
| said the President would not approve
I such a measure.

Telia Executives at Dinner Loss
Under Private Control Might
Have Been Larger.
The work of the United Htates Rail
road .Administration during Its two
years of federal control of the roads was
reviewed at the final dinner of the ex
ecutives of the Railroad Administration
before government control ceases, lasa
night at the New Willard Hotel.
Discussing the deficit of several hun
dred million dollars which it had cost
the government to run the transporta
tion systems, Director General ilines
"Had the railroads proceeded during
the war under private control they
would have been subject to just' as
heavy increases in operating expenses
as the government encountered?per
haps heavier, for they would not have
been able to offset many economies pos
sible under a central administration.
"If the Railroad Administration had
been able to raise its prices as quickly
as other industries did to meet the rap
idly advancing costs, there would have
been no loss, but an actual profit, in
operation of the roads for the first year
and ten months of government Control.
There would have been no deficit until
October. 1H19. and succeeding months,
when bad weather, the coal strike and
the steel strike created abnormal con
The director general expressed the
opinion that the new railroad bill dis
tinctly broadened the public attitude
toward the carriers, in legalizing prac
tices formerly outlawed. Kidding his
associates farewell, he said the Railroad
Administration had been the most efti- 1
cient organization of its kind ever gath
