Nov. 12. t Making of any kind of homo brow beer is illegal, and the sale of any materials whatsoever for use in the making of home brew is illegal, in the view of the Internal Revenue Bureau of the Treasury, which is charged with prohibition enforcement. Formal announcement to thi/ effect was made by the bureau to-day after long conferences following publication of the fact that the bureau had a new decision on the subject in contemplation. It is stated that sale of malt, hops and other products for legitimate use will not be interfered with, but the announcement makes no mention of how their use is to be distinguished by those responsible for sale, or what measures toward enforcement are to be taken. Various preparations for tlie making of home brew are now on the market and are openly sold. The bureau's announcement is as follows: "it appears from inquiries received In thu prohibition unit of the Bureau of Internal Revenue and recent newsTi.'t t'n> 1' nrtloloa Ihul lb.. 1 mnr?oolr.n bn e gone abroad that then! might be some ruling by tho bureau which would Interfere with the legitimate sale of malt extracts, dry malt or liopa. It has never been the purpose or (lesiro of the Bureau of Internal Revenue to interfere with any legitimate business, but, on the other hand, it wishes to do everything possible to promote such business. Then, too, there appears to he some misunderstanding as to the right to manufacture malt liquors, such as beer, in the home for the consumption by the family and bonu fide guests. "In connection with the so-cAlled home brewed beer the impression seems to prevail among somo people that materials which ordinarily arc or may be used in tho manufacture of intoxicating liquors may bo sold freely and legally, even though sold for the purpose of making Intoxicating liquors. "When materials are sold for the purpose of being converted Into lawfully manufactured Intoxicating liquors, auch transactions, of course, are legal If the law and regulations with reference to such manufacture are complied with. .However, it appears that section 18 ot title II. of the National Prohibition act may not be generally known to the public. It la as follows: " "It shall be unlawful to advertise, manufacture, sell or possess for sale any utensil, contrivance, machine, prop oration compound, substance, formula, direction or recipe advertised, designed or intended for use In the unlawful manufacture of Intoxicating liquor.' 'It la unlawful under the act to make a liquor by the process by which beer, ale or porter Is producod unless a permit Is first procured for that purpose tmder the law and regulations. If mult extracts, hops, isinglass, gelatine or other materials aie sold or advertised for sale In circumstances which showthat they are advertised or sold for use in the unlawful manufacture of intoxicating liquor, it Is the purpose of the bureau to prosecute persons so offending. ' "The so-called home brewed beer manufactured In the home for beverage purposes, even though for the sole use of the family and bona fide guests. Is under tho bureau's construction of tho law Illegal and the sale of materials for the purpose of such manufacture Is likewise Illegal." FIRST WINTRY BLAST OF SEASON HITS CITY Temperature Falle to 28; 60 Mile Wina necorama.

J GERMANY TO ASK TREATY CHANGE Major Political Parties Plan Unanimous Demand on Allies. BANKERS LEND SUPPORT Belief That Hardin# Will Reconstitute League Is Important Factor. H) RAYMOND SAVING. Spn->o/ Cable to Thk Nnvr Yotik HkjulT.. j Cop.'/righf. J02f, by Thk New Yobk HjmaU). ?? York Herald Bureau. I Berlin, Nov. It. ' All political parties in Germany save the Communist will demand revision of the Treaty of Versailles in the forthcoming budget debate In the Reichstag. The hope is to create an impression of unanimity in Germany that will he bpund to carry weight i with the Kntente Allies. This team 1 work will be due in part at least to the j plea by Caron Kurt von I^ersner, formerly head of the German peace delegation, that an atmosphere favorable to treaty revision could only be created by repeated Insistence by Germany on the Justice of such revision. All political parties have been asked to have their speakers attack the treaty. i>r. nuuorpii ureusnnciu. ngni wins Independent Socialist, backed up Bnron van Lersner to the extent of admitting that the treaty must bo revised. He declined, however, to urge It without fixing the blame for Ocrmany's catastrophe on the old regime. He also demanded that the German Government refrain from giving the Allies any causo for making peace more oppressive than It now Is. The radical parties will protest chiefly against the financial hardships wrought by the treaty, with special reference to the mounting coat or allied army occupation of Ge.man territory. At the same time they will demand that tho treaty terms bo fulfilled In so fur as It is possible to do so, and particularly that the disarmament clauses be enforced. The Germans have beyond doubt begun a comprehensive campaign for treaty revision, and many liberal leadera who heretofore have maintained reticence on this subject now have changed thetr tactics. This bc-came apparent for the first time when Dr. Bernhard Dernburg. one time German agent In the United States and later Minister I of Finance in the Phillpp Schcldemann Cabinet, spoke in the Reichstag. Ho voiced great bitterness against the treaty, at the same time criticising the Foreign Minister, one of his moat Intimate friends, for not taking a decided stand against it. His address produced a Parliamentary sensation. The gradual change In the public attitude toward the treaty also was shown In the bankers' convention here recently. More emphasis was laid on revision of the treaty than on other financial topics. A majority In the Socialist convention recently also went on record to demand treaty revision. It is obvious that this campaign hero Is aimed at Influencing the forthcoming conferences In Brussels nnd Geneva. Also it Is Inspired by the belief expressed In Germany that when the new Republican Administration comes Into power In Washington President Harding will sidetrack the whole subject of treaty revision by requiring a new International organization to replace the League of Nations as It Is now constituted. , MOONEY CASE GIGANTIC FRAMEUP, IS CHARGED | Policeman Witness Makes Statement to Mayor Rolph.

Nov. 12.?The hunger strike of the nine Irish prisoners in the Cork jail was called off to-day, the ninetyfourth day of the strike. Nourishment was administered to | the men this afternoon. It is of such j nature as suits their prostrate condition. Hope is entertained for their j recovery. The hunger strikers' agreed to take food after tho following message of Arthur Griffith, founder of tho Sinn Fein organization, to Hord .Mayor (fCallaghan, had been read to them: "I am of the opinion that our countrymen in the Cork prison have sufficiently proved their devotion and fidelity and that they should now, as they were prepared to die for Ireland, prepare again to live for her." "It will be anxious work, but we art. I quite hopeful of pulling all the men j through," said Dr. Pearson to the Associated Press to-day. "The first nourishment will consist of Infants' food, the white of eggs and beef juice. IVe are feeling our way with each case, and the outlook is distinctly favorable." Dr. Pearson denied reports that the prisoners began to take food several days ago. He declared they had nothing whatever to eat until to-day. Somn of the strikers at first showed reluctance ! to comply with Air. f/rlftith'a advice to I cease their fast, hut all them finally j consented. The cessation of the strike created I little surprise here, In view of the v~-?= luiim last week by the Hlnhop of Cork to end it. The QrlfTlth letter closely followed an appeal made by Bishop Cohnlan of Cork that there be a cessation of the strike, which he declared would only be n waste of live.?. Dublin1, Nov. 12.?A statement Issued to-night at Dublin Castle said the hun-I iter strikers in Cork Jail, who had been without food since August 11, resumed taking nourishment at S o'clock this afternoon, with nn entire absence of unfavorable symptoms. The meal, the statement added, was administered under the direction of the medical officers of the Jail, who believe that with careful treatment tn" prisoners ultimately will recover. The Corlt hunger strlko began on August 11. There were originally eleven of the strikers. One of them. Michael Fitzgerald, died on October 17. and another.

S. Office. VY.O. M ADOO MENTIONED Admits Representing Morse Interests Shortly After Leaving Cabinet. IIE DENIES IMPROPRIETY Buildinii Materials Bon&flit for ! Nhips Actually Went to Morse Houses. A confidence man with a criminal record extending throughout the country and covering a period of twenty years was at one time chief traffic engineer of the Emergency Fleet Cor- j poration, according to testimony given j yesterday before the Walsh committee j by J. T. Meohan, deputy chief of the j department of investigation of the | t.'nlted States Shipping Board. The ex-convict, one of whose thirty j names was K. S. Kiger, was a party \ with J. K. Fuwcett, formerly head of the lumber department of the Finer- I gency I-loot Corporation, to a proposed j lumber deal, which, had it been consummated, would have defrauded the Government of $1,500,000. Kiger was a man of distinguished personal appearance, Meehan testified, and ingratiated himself with "nerve." Meehon said that Kiger had a national j reputation as a confidence man and was wanted in many cities in connection with various schemes to defraud. Full Confession Obtained. Fawectt, according to Meehan, made a full confession of his part in the proposed transaction and was ousted from his job. Kiger already hud been fired when his criminal record wus unearthed, but lie still was being trailed by Meehan's men when the lumber deal was ,i i. 1 The ileal involved the tale of 139,000,000 feet of lumber in July, 1919. A bid of 13,900,000 for the lumber was looked into and it was discovered that the Government actually would have received only 92,400,000. The bid was made by Harris Brothers, Inc., a Chicago wrecking concern. Mechan sa'd the Harris firm formed a fictitious holding corporation known as the Olrard Importing and Kxporting Company to carry out the fraud. In return for awarding the sale to the Harris people, with which Kigor was connected, Fawcett was to receive 903.500, according to Meehan's testimony. The scheme, Mechan said, was for Fawcett, Klger and nn assistant general auditor of th<- Kmergoncy Fleet Corporation named McKlnley to export the lumber under the name of the fictitious holding company. The bid made by Hafris Brothers, Mechan said, was camouflaged by means of a certified check for 9390,000 to indicate a hid of 93,900,000. although the bid actually was only 92,400,000. The duplicity was discovered hy the use of detectaphones and shadows, Mechan said. Klger wa-- constantly watched and his relations with Fawcett were discovered. At tho same time the Post Office Department also was searching for Klger on a mail fraud charge. lt^ Inspe< tors assumed that Meehan's detectives had been employed to watch them. The tangle was straightened out when Klger i was taken Into custody by Post Office , Inspectors on the very day that Meehan , arrived In New York to arrest lilm. I Meehan said that Niger Is at present ( out on hall and that Fawcett has a Job , selling oil to churches for sanctuary , purposes. The lumber finally was sold to the i American X.umber Sales Company at it price which brought the Government i H,#00,000 more than the Hnrrls bid. Even i this sale did not clear the situation, Meehan said, because he understood the | American Lumber Sales Company whs acting for Harris Brothers. Later, however, It obtained Independent capital and i the lumber was disposed of under fairly satisfactory circumstance'". Chsrcei Assln Confirmed. j -Meehan was questioned at both the morning and afternoon sessions. His i j testimony bore out tho general charges j 1 contained in the report submitted by A. | M. Fisher and John F.

LABOR LEADER DEFIANT Prepared to Resisl Agressions, Says Resolution Passed by Central Council. The principle of open shop labor Will be declared by the Building Trade Em- " ployers of this city at a meeting next i Wednesday unlaw their so.ooo union- I Ized workmen back down on their demands for a flat increase of $1 a day. This ultimatum was pronounced yesterday by Ronald Taylor, president of the employers' association, in an address before the New York State Association of Architects at the Fine 1 Arts Building:, 215 West Fifty -seventh street. "The employers have gone as fur as tliey can go," Mr. Taylor said. "Next Wednesday we are going to vote down the *\ raise. We are facing the propo- ' sltion of whether we shall go to the American Federation of b&ler and insist on an honest contract which we can rely upon or whether we shall state plainly that hereafter the building trade employers of New York will pay the present wage scale irrespective of unionism or non-unionism, mce, creed or nationality." The union scale was adjusted January t 1 lost at $8 a day for mechanics and fri < a day for helpers, bricklayers and plasterers receiving a slightly higher pay. i On May 1. due to the Increase In Ihe ( cost of living, the executive committees of the employers and the" Building Trades Council agreed that the men should receive an additional increase of $1 a day, effective Immediately. Kavori Autonomy of Unions. Mr. Taylor added that the time lias | come when tho employers will have to j cease dealing with the trades collectively and the Trudea Council must restore autonomy to the thirty-three trades engaged (n the building industry. The Building Trades Union Is one of the closest labor organization in the city. Heretofore its leaders have generally made their own terms and got them. During the six months elapsed since the men got their last raise the business reported by the members of the employers' association has been the largest ever done In a similar period, according to Albert X. Chambers, second vice- < president of the association. The Central Trades and Labor Council at Its weekly meeting last night i adopted a resolution offered by Ernest i Bohm, Its secretary-, "to resist the ag- i gr. salons of big business in Its effort 1 to reduce wages and Introduce the open shop." Mr. Bohm said after the meet- 1 Ins that the statement of Mr. Taylor i was In line with what he had expected I from the employers. "It simply hears out what 1 said, i they're looking for a fight. And they will get it, too. We'll go tho limit." Mr. Bohm said. "There will be a fight If they refuse to grant these demands We have the money to carry It through." "What Is the Matter With the Building Industry?" was the subject discussed at yesterday's meeting of the architect!. Mr. Taylor spoke on behalf 1 3f tho employers; Hugh Frayne, organizer for the American Federation >f Labor, was to have represented the mnlovnes' aide, but was called aud- 1 lenly to Washington. Allen K. Heals, of Uotc'a 'iitporls, a 1 buildln? trade publication, compared the building situation to a "hell allocked oldier, the symptoms being nervousness, chills and fever and paralysis of tvlll power. He blamed the shortage ot building materials on the Washington i Administration for Its failure to provide in efficient policy of after war recon- , atructlon of industry. So Decline In Hnlldlnn Price*. Unlike shoes, clothing, automobiles ind other manufactured commodities, : dr. Beals said, building materials will , lot decline In price, because while the j former exceed demand In supply on . land, the steel, lumber, brick, cement ' | ind other requisite* of the building trade , ire far behind In production. lie warned , ibout a hundred architects at the meet- ' ng that price* will not be lower than :o-day, and they may expect to see ( Mtme of their clients shut out of the , narket altogether.

There the sophomore class lias refused to acquiesce in the order of the authorities and, according to the mandate, will be dismissed tomorrow. All other students threaten to leave at the same time, so that the college will be without students. Pome of the five boards of investigation set at work by Superintendent Scales of the Naval Academy have completed the special part of the work given to then* and their reports have been forwarded to the Secretary of the Navy. Others still are at work. It Is possible that the finding- wilt result In ordering courte'-martlal against n*!d. shipmen. Midshipmen are showing their resentment in various ways, soma of them extremely childish. One night they threw pitchers and other articles out of their windows. The next morning those whoso rooms were without these articles were disciplined. Admiral Scales realises that similar acts may occur at any time. He will take proper disciplinary action In every case and has no idea of permitting such acts to Influence Ills course. While the present lmpasso at St. John's war oct aeloned by the rules announced by the sophomores for the freshmen, some hazing of a coarse and severe nature has taken place during the year. One student was hazed In such a way that his father, a graduate of fit. John's, came here, learned the ik-talls of tl*e hazing and refused to allow his son to remain at the Institution.

Others were based on "college traditions," but which axe really of no antiquity, like keeping off certain walks. Others, like saluting with a knife ?t the table, simply were lesignated to make the under class men absurd. 22,000 AMERICANS NOW LIVING IN PARIS Form Fourth Largett Foreign Colony in Capital. Parts.
