apprehension spread.
Scenes of the greatest confusion
filled the streets of Hongkew and the
important Nanking road when, with

a rain of bullets from rifles and ma
chine guns.
A sniper’s shot brought a fierce
buret of fire from uniformed Jap
anese patrols and thousand of people,
panic-stricken, sought safety in a wild
flight. In a few moments squads of
steel-helmeted sailors and marines,
with bayonets fixed, swarmed into
the area, driving the Chinese before
them. Many foreigners in the streets
were exposed to grave danger and the
grounds of the Catholic General hos

The foreign minister retored that

Smith-Roosevelt Battle Grows
Warmer; Put Anti-Dry
Pressure on Hoover
Washington, Feb. I. —(/P) —The in
cessant swing of political weather
vanes has brought new developments
in the contest for the year’s presi
dential prize.
The engrossing Smith-Roosevelt
poster in the Democratic fold devel
oped a bit over the week-end, but
most conspicuous of the new factors
was one affecting the practically un
opposed Herbert. Hoover.
Anti-prohibition pressure on the
president was the interpretation plac
ed here on the New Jersey Republi
can committee’s failure to come out
at once for the renomination of Hoo
ver. This state was one of the first
to enroll under the Hoover banner in
1928 but now its party heads have put
off deciding whether to send their
delegation to the convention unin
structed, or to support the president.
Democracy’s news was led by a
Massachusetts’ declaration for Alfred
E. Smith. Governor Ely and Benator
Walsh, important in the party coun
cils of the Bay state, were the sup
porters of the enigmatically silent
New Yorker.

The spokesman also said the U. S.
“seemod to forget how things stood in
China,” emphasizing that America
was not in danger from the Chinese,
while Japan was menaced from vari
ous angles. If it was lawful for the
U. S. to keep marines there, he said,
“why should America make represen
tations when Japanese blue jackets
land purely in self-defense?”
Referring to reports that the Chi
nese had broken a truce at Shanghai,
the spokesman emphasized a wish
that the powers might appreciate that
the Chinese troops do not constitute

promise to keep a truce might be

to good old Musterole. Doctors call it a
"counter-irritant” becauseits warm

circulation and helps to draw out infec

just a salve. But do not stop with one
application. Apply this soothing, cool

affected area once every hour for
five hours. Used by millions for over
20 years. Recommended by many doc*
