for the city law department with its
ready delays.
The Daily News had a story today
that Corporation Counsel Folsom
was going to send in a forfeiture or
dinance tonight along with an opin
ion that the city hasnitany rights of
forfeiture. Ass't Con". Counsel
Craig said to a Day Book reporter:
"There's nothing to this News story
and there had been no plan to send
an opinion to the council.
"The department prepared a for
feiture ordinance," said Craig, "Mr.
Folsom made some changes in it But
he has taken it with him to Spring
field and it will not go lo council to
night" o o
.Washington, June 1. Pres. Wilson
today suggested the advisability of
withholding comment on the German
situation for the present Now that
he has the complete official text of
the German reply before him and has
discussed it with the cabinet, it might
be dangerous to make too wide con
jectures as to the exact nature of the
reply, he said.
The president told his callers that
he was very hopeful the reply could
be completed so as to go forward to
Berlin very soon. It was later under
stood that the rejoinder would be en
route to Berlin probably by Thurs
day; certainly not later than Friday.
Because the reply is to be com
pleted without delay the president be
lieves officials should refrain entirely
from commenting on it or outlining
its contents, as conjectures regarding
it are cabled abroad immediately and
invariably cause trouble for the U. S.
president Wilson's Mexican state-
ment will state that time has ar
rived when not to exceed 150,000
armed men must no longer be per
mitted to keep 15,000,000 starving.
It will be stated as a fact that cer
tin of these men in reality bandits
have been seizing and sending to 1
Cuba and across the border into the.
U. S. foodstuffs, while the Mexican
people actually are dying by hundreds
of starvation. Cash so obtained, it
will be charged, goes to the, private
purses of these leaders,
London, June 1. Exchange Tele
graph's Copenhagen correspondent
wired following story:
"Berlin advices say opinion in Ger
man political circles is America not
only-played into hands of Great Brit
ain, in her note to Germany, but she
has entered formal understanding
with allies."
Wets and drys will clash at council
meeting tonight when Alderman Ken-
nedy, Socialist, .introduces an" ordi
nance compelling saloons to close at
11 o'clock. Kennedy says his ordi
nance will also apply to clubs and:
dance halls.
The opposing faction will attempt
to railroad the bill to the license
committee, which is wet. Kennedy
will ask that the bill be turned over
to health committee, which is dry.
This is the third assault on the saloons-since
the new -administration
entered the city hall. Other bills are
in course' of preparation. They will
be introduced if this fails.
