The United States court of appeals rendered a de cision here yesterday ruling that a prohibition enforcement officer is jus tified in making a raid without a search warrant when he detects the odor of liquor or mash on the breezes. The result of the ruling was the affirmation of conviction by a lower court of Robert J. McBride, promi nent planter of near Mobile, who now must serve six months in jail. The officers were walking along a road near a barn on McBride's planta tion when a suspicious scent struck their nostrils. They defied a "vicious dog" sign and traced the odor to t cellar underneath the barn where two negroes were said to have been found in charge .of a 75-gallon still, which was confiscated. McBride filed application for return of the still on the ground that no search warrant had been used. INDIANAPOLIS fl Locals f j TheHei vtjVa'" tle countri gathering mushrooms. Xa of Washington, D.

FACTORY GIRLS TRAPPED BY FIRE Another of Those Tragedies, Basic Reason for Which Is Avarice The New York, Nov. 4 (By Associated Press). Three girls were killed, three more are reported dying and about a dozen were taken to hospitals seriously injured after a fire had broken out in a celluloid factory on East Thirteenth street yesterday aft ernoon and flames had quickly en veloped the three-story building. About forty girls were employed in the factory. Several jumped from windows as the panic spread. More escaped over roofs. Others were tak en down ladders by firemen. A cloak and suit concern occupied the first floor of the building. The two upper floors were leased by S. H. Scheiber and company, jobbers in hair ornaments arid toilet articles, in the manufacture of which celluloid is us ed. The fire started on the secoinnd floor and spread rapidly. Immediately girls rushed to the windows. Of those who jumped, at least one was killed instantly. While the panic was at its height, a man stepped out to the coping above the first floor and tried to catch the girls as they fell. He touch ed one or two, but he was believed to have broken their fall. One girl was seen hanging to a sill on the second floor. She was forced to let go when the flames came close. Three girls escaped by ascending a stairway from the third floor to a garrett, climbing a ladder to the roof and then descending through the next building. As the firemen arrived, they saw a man jump from the third floor, strike a cornice on the first and fall into the street dead. The fire fighters diving into the dense smoke came across a number of girls in the very center of the build ing, lying on the floor overcome by smoke. WEATHER NEXT WEEK Washington, Nov. 4.

AMERICAN JAZZ PLAYERS INVADING ENGLAND London, Nov. 4. The recent influx of American jazz bandsmen to supply music for the constantly increasing numbers of Britishers who have suc cumbed to the fox trot has had the effect of spreading considerable alarm among English musicians, many of whom claim to have thereby lost their jobs. Recently there have been numerous representations to the home secretary alleging that American musicians hsve been allowed to enter England in violation of the alien restriction act. It is claimed that a large num ber of American jazzers have come here posing as students or tourists, while they already have contracts in their pockets calling for large sal aries, some as high as sixty pounds a week. Musicians' unions are considering a campaign to boycott all hotels and music halls employing alien jazz players to the exclusion of the Brit ish. The unions claim to have the support of the British Legion. The craze for American jazz danc ing in London has reached wide pro portions, as is witnessed by the large numbers of advertisements in the daily papers of instructors in latest ballroom dances, and the many places furnishing jazz music.

The proposal that Alabama purchase from Florida the nine counties west of the Apala chicola river, and which the Florida legislature of 1921 ignored, has bob bed up again in Alabama, the Ope lika (Ala.) News in a recent issue urging the purchase, because the ter ritory includes the city of Pensacola, J with a deep water harbor. The peo- pie oi aiaoama in xne general election November 7th will vote on a consti tutional election which would provide for an extension of the credit of the state for development of the port of Mobile. "For those who are just bound and determined to vote bonds, and more and more bonds, and who find their latest excuse for piling up more debt on the taxpayers constructing port terminals," said the News, "we have a better and more promising proposi tion to submit than pouring ten mill ions of dollars into the muddy water along the Mobile shipping front. That proposition is that we suspend the present effort to add ten million i dollars to the obligations of the state and figure on making the bonded debt only a few more millions, and with the funds so raised, we buy from Florida the jig saw piece of real es tate now part of the peninsula com monwealth immediately south of Ala bama. That would give Alabama two ports, and while chuck full of state pride we think Pensacola has Mobile beaten several blocks. The water front needs but a little upholstering and is really a gulf port, right at and on the gulf." The News cites the shorter haul to Pensacola and adds that since the Louisville & Nashville railroad moves the greater part of Alabama freight for export it naturally goes to Pen sacola rather than to Mobile. "By making the Florida real estate purchase Alabama would have two ports and be certain of the traffic of which she now has only a portion," says the newspaper. "Of course this would cost a bit more than to uphol ster the waterfront at Mobile but we would be sure of getting something."
