Those who blamed prohibition were
inclined to specify that lack or proper
enforcement or inability to enforce it
properly was the element which made
it a cause of crime.

Tariff Bill Debate to
Continue Ahead of
Special to Indiana Daily Times
and Philadelphia Public Ledger.
WASHINGTON, June 21.—Under per
sonal leadership of the President the Ad
ministration party in Congress was able
to set Its signals and clear the way for
action on its legislative program. Agree
ment was obtained to terminate the snarl
Into which three paramount Republican
measures had drifted. A skillful parlia
mentary move by Senator Watson of In
diana robbed the Senate Democrats of a
talking point for political purposes.
The situation as oharified by the days
development follows:
The Senate will resume consideration
of the tariff bill. On its passage the
Roldiers’ bonus measure will be taken up
and held before the upper House until a
vote shall have been taken. The ship
subsidy bill, even though approved by
the House in the meantime, will be held
In committee until after passage of the
House Republicans will be permitted to
defer action on the shipping bill until the
conclusion of their reported series of
three-day recesseß over a period of two
or three weeks. President Harding has
agred to the Campbell proposal to afford
his party in Congress an opportunity of
revisiting their constituencies to make
clear the purposes and necessities of the
There will be no adjournment of Con
gress until both the bonus ami subsidy
bills have been passed. The Senate line
up indicate'! more than enough votes to
enact the soldiers' bonus bill over a pres
idential Teto, yet the story persisted that
Mr. Harding had let it become known
he would not wield the ax of disapproval.
At the White House it whs stated simply
the President's letter to Chairman Ford
ney “still was on file.” In that letter
he insisted such a bill should carry its
own method of financing the bonus.
After the Senate had voted, 51 to 22,
to table a motion by Senator Walsh,
Democrat, Massachusetts, to sidetrack
the tariff bill for the bonus, other mi
nority Senators launched such a furious
attack on Administration policy as to
cause Senator Watson to bring in a pro
posal calculated to silence them, or at
least to rob their political speeches of
real effectiveness. The Indiana Senator
offered, and the Senate adopted, a mo
tion providing specifically for n '‘special"
order making the bonus bill unfinished
business Immediately after passage of
the tariff measure, without shutting out
the right of any Senator to move In the
meantime to supplant the turiff.
The effect of the Watson strategy was
to enable Republican leaders to say that
if the Democrats loved the bonus so much
they could expedite its consideration
and passage by refraining from speeches
delaying passage of the tariff. Every

Democratic speech against the tariff or
for the bonus would have the effect of de
laying Just that much consideration of
the soldier’s bill the Senate having gone
on record by 52 to 8 with a promise to
take up the measure the moment the
tariff is out of the way.
The outcome of the day's developments
on Capitol Hill was a victory for Mr.
Harding In his opposition to the pro
posal by Senator McCumber, Noreh Da
kota, to lay aside the tariff for the bonus.
The President wished to have 'he Senate
complete its tariff task. Senator Jones,
Washington, chairman of the Commerce
Committee, gave notice he wou’d not re
port the ship subsidy legislation until
the bonus was passed.
While House agreement with the nouse
plan fi.r a series of “gentlemen’s agree
ment” recesses was embodied In a letter
to Representative Mondell, majority floor
leader. On that score Mr. Harding In
dulged In compromise, although he did
not yield on his poiut of demanding ac
tion before an adjustment.
From a purely political standpoint,
the President has brought his party in
Congress to a semblance of orderly pro
cedure, and ended, for the moment at
least, the panicky working at cross i*ur
poscs which was threatening the whole
legislation program.—Copyright, 1922, by

Egg, tt Seems
LAFAYETTE, Ind., June 21.—An East
ern hatchery sat on a golden egg in
western Indiana and hatched $30,000 in
working the old baby chick game on
farmers and poultry raisers, postal agents
revealed today.
The victims are waiting while the
agents try to find the proprietors of the
King Hatchery Company, 1400 East
Twelfth street, Cleveland.
Advertisements flooded this part of the
State, guaranteeing safe delivery of 97
per cent of the order and asking cash
with all orders, specifying that they must
be received before April 18. The orders
were sent and so was the cash. No chicks
were received.
Anti-Bonus Statements Are
Not True Feelings, Says
Ex-soldiers of the World War who still
are suffering from wounds or disability
Incident to their service have entered a
protest against the use of their names
to fight adjusted compensation, na
tional headquarters of the American Le
gion announced here today upon receipt
of information from the Disabled
American Veteran's organization.
“For the solemn purpose of correcting
a rank injustice to the disabled," Robert
M. Smyth. Cincinnati. Ohio, national
staff representative of the Disabled Amer
ican Veterans, charges in a letter to the
legion that "certain financiers corralled
n few disabled soldiers recently, brought
them up before President Harding (for
which they were probably well paid)
and had their picture taken.” This pho
tograph. Smyth alleges, was published
broadcast with the statement that “dis
abled veterans are against a bonus.”
Smyth quotes hia organizations magazine
to the effect that “the payment of a bonus
will not prevent nor delay taking care of
the maimed and the crippled veteran and
taking care of the war cripples ought not
to delay nor prevent paying Just compen
sation to all ex-service men." The dis
abled veterans in their last two national
meetings have indorsed adjusted com
pensation, the publication shows, and
urged its immediate enactment into law.
Burglars Strip

Burglars broke into the garage of Wil
