i rench General Says United
Action Necessary for Peace
of World.
Pays Soldiers Tribute at Din-i
ner of Lafayette-Marno |
Day Committee.
Another thread was woven last night
Into the strong cord which binds together
America and Prance when nearly
four hundred men and women of New
York honored Oen. Emlle Fayolle of the
.French army at a dinner at the WaldorfArtorla
Tales of American heroism on the
Marne were retold by the French commander
who led the army at the second
bottle and broke the spirit of Germany.
The dinner was under the auspices of
th* T^afayette-Marne Day Committee
j nd the lAfayette Day National Committee.
"The union of France and America ts
obsolutely necessary to the peace of the
world," Gen. Fayolle said, speaking In 1
French, "I speak not of the Interest of
those two countries but of the Interests
>f humanity."
The General described the first battle
of the Marne which stopped the Oer- |
mans as a French battle, but the second, 1
which broke the German morale was
Franco-American, he said, and In glow
Ing terms h# pictured the deeds of the
American Army fighting side by side
with the French. The audience was
stirred by the thrilling description the
Frenchmr.vj save of the battle and time
snd again broke Into applause.
Promises Support -to France.
"America will not turn her back 0:1
France," Dr. Henry Van Dyke, poet and j
former Ambassador, said. "We shall i
not count the war won nor peace accomplished
until France Is restored ;
whole and sound and safe against ag- '
grosslon or betrayal by her ancient foe."
Tho men and women, who with warm
hearts were eager to show their love

minute applauding. When he could go
on. Dr. Van Dyke said:
"In our welcome to you, air, as a
wave soldier and a famous General, we
would have you feel the warmth of
America's friendship for France.
"That friendship Is our pride and our
treasure. Do not be disturbed by the
confused nnd confusing noise of an
American election. The Americans, like
ne French, are an excitable nnd talkative
race. But underneath the talk are
. onvlctlons and sentiments not easily
changed. One of these la a, sense of the
debt of honor we owe to France.
Heensat* Debt to France.
"For the noble neurt of Lafayette, who
prang to help us In our day of need, j
honor to France!
"For the long record of achievement In I
it and science and literature, honor to
"For the steady faith that kept the
idea of the republic alive through fierce
: evolution, futile monarchy and false
empire, honor to France!
"For the patience and Industry with
which she renewed her strength after
the first German invasion, honor to
"For the heroism with which she resisted
the second German Invasion and
poured out her beot blood In defence of
freedom and right, and held the fort
without flinching while she waited for
her friends to come up. honor to France!
"For the loyalty with which she consecrated
the hour of victory to the cause
of peace, and kept her word to enter the
League of Nations against war, honor to
"May our courage, our loyalty, our
devotion match hers. Our flag has
floated close to hers on fields of bloody
strife. May the tricolor and the Stars
and Stripes never be separated In the
ounclls of worldwide peace."
An Interested Guest.
Gen. Fayolle was much Interested In
the American banquet. He laughed
heartily when the flashlight picture was
taken, and commented on American enterprise.
"This country Is not as much concerned
now In Germany's guilt as In France's
glory," James M. Beck said In a happy
ypeech welcoming the General. Tlie
Frenchmen visiting this country now
might think there was a reaction In sentiment,
but there Is not, the speaker said.
"As far as our allies and France are
concerned, we all know that the warm
gulf stream runs through our national
life," Mr. Beck said. "There Is no question
that, excepting for a negligible
minority, the people of America want to
;>lay their part In the reconstruction of
our allies, and play It side by side with
France. We may not want to play It
with all the Powers, as there are some
with whom we have scant sympathy."
John Qulnn had some sharp criticism
for Kngland and Lloyd George for not
having taken sides with Poland against
the BotshevlkL He praised France for
saving Poland and referred to the British
attitude as a "revolting episode In
Kngllsh history."
At the conclusion of the dinner Gaston
Llebert, the French Consul General
in New York, announced he had been
commissioned by his Government to bestow
the Ixglon of Honor on Charles I
Stewart Davison, chairman of the Marne I
Day Committee, for his activities In
Keeping n live the memory of the Marne. ;
Gen. Fayolle pinned the decoration on
.Mr. Davison.

Syracuse. Oct. 11.?An automobile
laden with whiskey was rfddled with
bullets, another car, containing two
rifles and three revolvers and a similar
wet cargo, was captured and a third
car was halted at the point of a revolver
In a clash between bootleggers,
sheriffs and custom house staffs two
miles east of Malone on the State highway
to Chateaugay. A foruth car escaped
In a shower of bullets. Lltjuors for which
$2,030 had been paid In Canada were
Enforcers of the Volstead law acted
lulckly when they received a "tip"
from Chateaugay that automobiles ap
parently carrying liquor were speeding
through that village In the direction of
Malotie. Selecting a station on the top
of a hill Just east of the Smallman
farm, at which the automobiles would
be travelling at a low rate of speed, the
officers awaited the approach of the
whiskey runners. The cars arrived at
ten minute Intervals, and the greeting
they received aroused the countryside.
The armed drivers, taken by surprise,
failed to answer the fire of the revenue
men. but the man who fled fired several
shots without effect.
The driver of the third car backed his
machine AoWn a sharp decline In the
road In an attempt to escape, crashing
Into a guard rail at the foot of the hill
erected as protection from a twenty-five
foot drop Into Trout Hlver Creek. It
was only a miracle which prevented the
car from going down the embankment,

placed under arrest at the point of a

his life In attempting to escape. A bullet

were also the bottled goods, consisting .
of all varieties of Canadian liquor to
the extent of thirty-three cases.

Statcx Commissioner Hitchcock In Now
The clouds of another whiskey scandal
hungr over Stnten Island yesterday as a
result of the raid In which upward of
(20,000 worth of booties' liquor was confiscated
on Sunday afternoon while It
was being shipped through the St. Oeorge
yards of the Baltimore and Ohio Rail
road, ana me general opinion or omclais
seemed to be that the gang behind the <
shipment was the same one which was J
Involved In the t ansactlons which led
up to the murder of Frederick P. Eckert
a couple of months ago. <
Leroy W. Hons. United States Attor- (
ney for the district, which Includes Long
Island and Stnten Island, was somewhat
displeased over the statement of Super- 1
lntendent M. J. Murphy of the railroad i
police, who made the seizure, that he I j
had known for a long time that camou- '
flaged whiskey was being shipped 1
through the Baltimore and Ohio yards.
The Federal prosecutor felt that If Mr.
Murphy had known this he should have
brought It to his attention, and sent '
word that he would like tb talk with '
him about the mater.
The seized whlekey was taken over
by William D Allen, head of the Brooklyn
force of prohibition agents, and removed
to the. Post Office Building In
Brooklyn. fl
Reconsideration Was Sought
by Jersey Brewers.
Washington, Oct. 11.?The Supreme
Court refused to-day to reconsider Its
decision of last June 7 sustaining
validity of the prohibition amendment
and portions of the enforcement act.
The rehearing had been asked In petitions
tiled by Christian Felgenspan, a
brewer of Newark, N. J., and George C.
Dempsey, a wholesale liquor dealer of
Boston, Mass.
Rehearing of the Felgenspan case was
sought on the ground that the court
failed to state the reason for Its con
elusions In holding the amendment valid,
that Inadequate time had been allowed
for the presentation of the case and that
the court's construction of the section
of the amendment relating to "concurrent
power" made Congress's author'ty
practically paramount and nullified the
effect Intended by the Senate and House.
The Dempsey petition was based on
the claim that neither the amendment
nor the enforcement act were Intended
to prohibit the manufacture or sale of
beverages containing small quantities of
alcohol where such beverages were not
in fact Intoxicating. #

Printing Facts
If type could be locked up so
that all of it would be absolutely
jf the same height; if engravings
:ould be made so that the surface
vould be absolutely even; if the
t>ed and tympan printing-press
vere mathematically uniform,
nake-ready would be unnecessary.
But because this is a finite world,
:he printer must correct the inequalities
in the plate, the type
Form, and the press, by^building
jp with paper, chalk, or some
jther substance underlays and
overlays. This process is called
nake-ready. The difference between
a good and a bad piece of

by the care and skill of the press

The first book one boy read throuj

Lpter on even rrore interesting are the fragments we ha
of the voyages of Columbus, the four hundred and twenl
eignrn anniversary ot whose discovery of America we t
celebra4'njr to-day.
Thi? is a part of one of Columbus' letters in th$ yc

"Such is my . fate, that the twenty years of service
throupb which I have passed with so much toil and -'anger
have left rre rotHng and ot thin very day I don't poaaess
a roof in Spain that I can call my own.
"For seven years I was at your royal court, where
every one to whom the enterprise was mentioned treated
it as ridiculous; but now there is not a man, down to the
very tailora, who does not beg to be allowed to become
a discoverer.
"It is right to give Ood His due, and to receive that
which belongs to one's self. This is a just sentiment,
and proceeds from just feelings. The land- in this part
of the world which are now under your Highnesses'
sway are richer and more e tensive than those of any
other Christian power And yet. after that I had, by
the Divine will, placed them under your high and royal
sovereignty, and was on the point of bringing your Majesties
into the receipt of a very great and unexpected
revenue, end while I was waiting for ships to convey
me in safety and with a heart full of joy to your presence,

discovered T was arrested and thrown with my two brothers
loaded with irons, into a ship, stripped and very ill treated
without being allowed any appeal to justice.

H'rhnesses'service, and -owl have not a hair in my head
that is not gr-y, my body is nlirm and all that was left
to me, as well as to my brothers, has been taken away
and sold, even to the frock that I wore, to my great
dishonor. ,
"Great and unexampled will be the glory and fame
of your Highnes-es, if you do this, and the memory of
your Kighnesse as just and grateful sovereigns will survive
as a bright example to Spain in future ages. The honest
devotedness I have always shown to your Majesties'
services and the so unmerited outrage with which it
has been repaid will not allow my soul to keen silence,
however much I may wish it. I implore your Highnesses
to forgive my complaints.
"I am indeed in as ruined a condition as I have related.
Hitherto I have wept over others; may heaven
have mercy upon me and may the world weep for me."
