It will encourage the opposition of

Mr. Borah's bill contains a slap at
Woodrow Wilson and A. Mitchell Cal
mer, former Attorney General. It is a
protest, in other wprds, against the
invasion, search and seizure, and other
acts, during time of war, which, dur
ing time of peace would not be tol
erated. It is also a protest against the
act of authorities during time of peace
which denied certain newspapers print
ed in the United States to say what
.Democrats, it appears, do not hesi
tate when considering the bill because
of the hidden blow aimed at the for
mer President. But the bill provides
heavy punishment for state and federal
officers who make searches and seiz
ures without warrant of law. Under
that provision, prohibition officers
would be kept out of the homes of the
poor and the ignorant.
That is what gives them pause. They
wonder what the Anti-Saloon league
will say as to that.
The penalties carried in the bill are
heavy—$5,000 to $10,000 for each vio
lation. Such fines are provided for any
state officer who interferes with the
attempt of any person living within
the United States to exercise any con
stitutional or legal privilege to “pur

Washington, April 9.—(Special.)—
According to W. P. G. Harding, gov
ernor of the federal reserve board, Ger
many will probably change its organic
law so that retention of title to piop
erty shipped into Germany may be
guaranteed the shipper.
At the present time, no such law ex.
ists, and Americans experimenting with
the proposition of shipping low grade
cotton into European countries for
manufacture into iinished .products, t)v
manufacturer to retain a portion in
payment for his work, and return the
remainder to the original owner, are
denied that market.
It has previously been reported that
a corporation doing business in Ala
bama—Birmingham and Mobile—has
arranged to ship many bales of low
grade Alabama, Geogia, Mississippi and
Tennessee cotton to Czeeho-,Slovakia for
manufacture, the estimate being that
for this low grade cotton for which
there is no market at present, the
producers will receive from 10 to 15
cents per pound. Governor Harding
approves that* experiment, the worth
of which will be proved within nine
months. If its promise is borne out,
there will 'be a market for low grade
cotton of all southern sfates.
“I have been informed by a repre
sentative of the German government,"
said Governor Harding, "that Germany
would probably so change its laws that
title to goods shipped in might be re
tained by the shipper. This change
would increase the chances of the ex
periment making good.”

Startling Statements Made Under Oath by C. E. Craft
Before Notary Public
Six years ago Chas. E. Craft, Rural Route A, Box 169, At
lanta, Ga., was not able to work. He had had several
hemorrhages and physicians had pronounced him a tu
bercular subject. » His father, mother, a brother qnd a
sister all died of tuberculosis.
Jn the spring of 1915 Mr. Craft began taking Creo-Pinus, and after
he had taken three or four bottles he was in fine shape. On Septem
ber 18th, 1920, five and one-half years later, he went before Carl F.
Hutcheson, notary public, Atlanta, and made oath to the facts stated,
and further that he now sleeps well and eats anything that he desires;
that he has had better health than ever before; that he has had no
trouble since he took Creo-Pinus in the spring of 1915.
The best doctors prescribe Beechwood Creosote in combination for
tubercular trouble and anything tending to it, such as persistent colds
and coughs. Creo-Pinus contains BEECHWOOD CREOSOTE in com
bination with OIL PINE NEEDLES, OIL MULLEIN, GUM CAM
PHOR, GLYCERINE, HONEY. OIL LEMON and a THYMOL MIX
TURE. Creo-Pinus is an ideal preparation for all kinds of coughs,
''olds, throat and bronchial troubles. It never disappoints and never
distresses the stomach. .

Bessemer, April 9.— (Special.)—New
houses are in the course of construc

Fifty building permits were issued

Washington. April ft (Special.)—Ft was
a sharp, bitter, determined and well
sustained fight in the democratic caucus
between the opponents and proponents
of the emergency tariff bill today. Ths
victory of the. former was decisive, al
though by the narrow margin of 53 to 64.
Representative Tague of Massachu
setts. an opponent of the so-called peanut
tariff legislation, was elected to the va
cancy on the ways and means commit
tee over Representative Hayden of Ok
lahoma, who supported that legislation.
Representative Kitchin was re-elected
chairman of the committee and demo
cratic leader, and the committee wm
given the authority to fill democratic va
cancies on all other committees.
Mr. Kitchin requested the caucus to
name Representative Garrett of Tennes
see. assistant, leader, and the request,
amid applause, was acceded to. In as
much as Mr. Kitchin, on account of ill
ness, will necessarily be abeent the
greater portion of the time. Mr. Garrett
will be. in effect, democratic leader. He

being considered in t.he House.
The victorious faction of the party,
in the subsequent meeting of the caucus,
probably Monday, will ask for a party
pledge against the emergency tarlft,
which will be reintroduced Monday, it
is indicated that so many southerner®
have regretted their former support of
the bill that, the pledge by a two-third®
majority will be granted. This, would
mean the elimination of a question on
which the party sharply divided in the
