"Rule of CALL FOR AT CLOSE 0 TO BE ANT (Associated Frees Night Wire) DUBLIN, April 24. The 24-hour strike terminated at 9 o'clock tonight , when three gigantic demonstrations j were held to mark approval of labor's I protest against militarism. There were no disorders in connection with the strike but a mild sensation was ' created by placards posted through-1 out the city proclaiming an Irish workers' republic. An investigation proved that the proclamation was bogus. The object of the proclamation ap parently was to detract from the suc cess of labor's protest and alienate the sympathy of the employers by suggesting that the labor party had engineered the strike for the purpose of establishing a soviet. Men and women of all classes, however assembled by thousands in Sackville street tonight and listened to prominent , Jaborites who in speeches explained in strbng lan guage that the people did not intend to submit to the rule of the gun.

We dare you not to, replies the more hopeful element. Those who do the real work of arranging and carrying out the wild west program, are saying nothing. They have nothing to say. If they are given the word, they will go ahead and do their work. But if the word is not spoken, these men and women are powerless. It is a shame that any" question has ever been allowed to come up about the greatest and best wild vest sports program ever held. If Prescott omits the celebration this year it amounts to just this: telling five to ten thousand visitors they needn't come. It involves the desecration of an advertising institution' that has won this ,city more public attention than anything else in the world. Genoa may be in the date lines because it has a confer ence Belfast is frequently mentioned in connection with riots. Tokio gets its name in the paper by reason of the visit of the Prince of Wales. But these pieces of publicity are fleeting and evanescent. When the economic conference is over, when the riots are quelled, when the prince has gone home', nobody will ever feel a deep-seated urge to visit Genoa and Belfast and Tokio because of those persons and things. But with us it is different. Prescott, made known by its Frontier Days, draws people here to make their homes; it brings in capital for investment and then provides generously the place to invest it. Who with any reason in his skull can fail to see it? By noon today every seat at the chamber of commerce dinner ought to be spoken for; the diners should be prepared in their minds the short, snappy purposeful speeches they are going to make, and resolving that if anything whatever is ,put to a vote, their response shall be "AYE!" WICKEDEST CITY EX-PflHSON WITHUEFO (Associated Press Night Wire) CHEYENNE, Wyo., Ajril 24. A committee of nearly 40 personal friends of the Rev.

The exchange of edi torial comment had been going on about a week. It finally grew per sonal. When Day and Wood met today an argument was started. Wood is alleged to have struck Day, breaking the latter's nose and inflicting other injuries.

Rich mond was in danger of mob viol ence and that he had been forced to seek protection at the home of District Judge J. R. Arnold did not correctly reflect the situation there. "There was no suggestion of mob action against Richmond," one dispatch declared, "but there was held a meeting of representa tive business and professional men with the city council at which it was decided that his vituperation against the town and its people had resulted in feeling so bitter that it was advisable that hm should leave. The only time he took refuge at Judge Arnold's home was when he went there ask ing for food and representing that there was a mob after him." two shots. Wood died in a hospital an hour later.

Their pastors were asked to report to the court if thev failed to innear regularly. ING BUG FIFTY-NINTH YEAR (Associated Press Night Wtre) I NEW YORK, April 24. Customs j officials announced today that they were working to smash a rich boot legger ring which they charged had mobilized a fleet of former subma rine chasers to meet the creation of America's "dry navy." The agents are working on the theory that the swift craft that once pursued the German U-boats, and were sold to private owners after the war, now are :posing as, nayal ves sels, and commanded by officers in the uniform of the United States, already-ha?e succeeded in rupning $3, 000,000 worth" of rum into the United States from Bermuda and Havana. The announcement of the discovery of the alleged smuggling scheme was made after former submarine chaser 101 rechristened the "Fidus" had been nabbed in New York har bor by a police boat and a customs launch, after she had passed quaran tine and was darting toward a pier. Customs men claimed that they found aboard her numerous charts with marked landings along the At lantic coast and Hudson river. No liquor-was found aboard her and the crew told a hair-raising tale of hav ing had their cargo plundered by pirates off the Long Island coast yesterday. The ex-chaser, said to bear British registry, was tied "up at the Battery, where tonight she was- held on a I technical charge that she left Ber muda without clearance papers. Her i captain, who gave his name as John j Kelly, and his crew of seven were taken to the customs house for a se- vere grilling. After the examination, : which was attended by a representa Uive from the office of the British .counsel-general, Assistant United States Attorney Falk said: Masked as- Officer "Kelly wore ' the uniform of a United States naval officer. We 'have not yet made any charges against him and the crew.. It is un derstood that the Fidus carried 2,100 cases of choice Scotch whiskey from I Bermuda and that it is what we want ' to find out. The vessel failed to show on her manifest any cargo and after questioning by customs agents it was decided to take her into port." Un:ted States agents who said t: ey helieved the name "John Kelly" "i titior.s and that the captain's real . name was M. Stanley Clarke of Brooklyn, intimated there was a pos ibi!ity that there might be brought a nst tilt captain a charge of wear ing an ensign's uniform illegally. BASEBALL xfia.
