GOV. JOHN II. PARKER of Louisi
ana, whs has promised to eqnelch
the Ku Klui Klan In his state, took
his Drat radical action In that line last
week when he ordered a company of
the National Guard to proceed to Mer
Roa and Bastrop, In Iforebonae
parish, to await his orders. That par
ticular parish has been the field of
aroch Klao activity snd the organise
boo was said to be connected with
tin celebrated Mer Roar kidnaping
ens of last August, which the author
ities bsve been entirely nnable to
aotve. Flv clttsens of the town were
kidnaped and two of them. Mai Watt
Daniels and Thomas Fletcher Rich
ards, hare not been seen since. The
Ma who were rHessed said the kid
napers looked Uk what we know of
the Ka KIu as they had hoods and
robes." There wss a rumor Wednes
day that the bodlee of the missing
men had been found and that this ac
counted for the calling out of the
troop. Another explanation of the
governor's action waa that residents
ef Jena, In La 8all pariah adjoining
Msrehoase parish, bad passed resolu
tions asking to be "relieved from the
eepreesloo ef the Klan."
At the recent conference of gover
nors In Whit Sulphur Springs, W.
Ta, Oovaraor Parker nought to obtain
assurance of co-operation from other
execetlve la his war on the Klan,
bat he was rather disappointed ta
the result.
X3 RESIDENT HARDING played host
for 16 ef the governors at lunch
eoa ta ta Whit Hons and discussed
with them the problem of enforcing
the prohibition law. fourteen f them
agreed with th President that m
ares must b adopted for rigid ea-
forcecaent ef th Volstead act. The
ether. Governor Ritchie of Maryland,
denounced the law i as an Intolerable
extension ef paternalism in contraven
tion of state rights.
The great majority ef people of
Maryland believe the Volstead law
simply cannot be enforced ther,'
fiovernor Ritchie asserted. "Oar peo
ple are Imbued with a fine traditional
respect for law and estsbllshed Order,
aad w were effectively solving the
temperance question by local option.
Daring that method, when th people
ef a community wanted prohibition
they actually got It
"The Volstesd isw changed all this.
Oar people. In the main, regard It ss
an unnecessary and drastic federal In
frlngement of their state snd personal
rights. The lack of respect for law
and the actual lawlessness which bavs
resulted Is deplorable. The only rem
edy I see Is to recognize that the Vol
stesd law Is destructive of th rights
of the stores snd to turn the whole
eueetlon back to the states, so that
each may settle It In accordance with
the will ft Its own eople."
These were cited as the chief de
facts In prohibition enforcement:
1. Federal prohibition officers, num
boring 4,000, are not sufficiently nu
merous to cope with evsslon of th
Isw.
X In many Instances federal off! cert
-are political henchmen who wink st
violations.
8. Until the national government
stamps out Interstate "rum running"
state enforcement will be difficult.
i, State enforcement laws In many
states are too las.
S. Federal Judges sre too lenient
4. The metropolitan press Is too
prone to treat prohibition enforcement
with levity.
President Harding said he would
csll another conference neit year, to
Include new governors, snd thst a pro
gram of federal and atate co-operation
would be mapped out
SKNATOKS opposed to the ship sub

th latter were M Kellar of Tennes
see, who Introduced sn amendment to
ellmliiate th entire government al
section; and King of I'tub. who Intro
duced a bill proponing abolition of the
shipping board snd transfer of ltt
functions to ths Department ef Coin
meres.
In the house further cenalde ratios
of the Green resolution fer an amend
ment to the Constitution prohibiting
the Issuance of ta (-exempt securities,
ss urged by the President snd Sec re
tsry Mellon, wss postponed until after
the holidays. Opponents of the reso
lution ssld It wss beaten.
SENATOR LA DO of North Dskots.
Republican, has Introduced s
resolution calling for an Investigation
by th senate foreign affairs commit
tee to sscertsln the true auto of af
fairs In Nicaragua, the facts concern
ing American occupation of that re
public. In 1910: why American force
still are quartered there, snd "the
connection between certain New Tort
commercial houses and the Chamorro
Clan government of Nicaragua." The
resolution set forth various criticisms
of the American policy In Nk-srsgns.
declaring that "no state of war exists
between the C nlted States and Nica
ragua which, would Justify the per
manent quarterns of our military
forces upon a territory of a friendly,
neighborly nation"; thst "the execu
tive department has no constitutional
powers to maintain such Invsslon
without the consent of congress.''
THE nsrsl appropriation bill, car
rying s total of 1123.000.000, and
providing for sn enlisted personnel of
M.000 men, wss passed by the bonne
on Monday. It Includes a request
that the President negotlste with for
elgn powers relative to limiting con
struction of warrraft nnder 10.000
tons, though Repreaentstlve Mondel'
told the house Mr. Harding needed no
urging and would start the negotls
tlons "when he deems It wise and
practicable'
A MBAS8ADOR HARVEY Is on his
wsy home from England, having
been called for a conference with the
President snd bis sdvlsera concernini
the possibility of the United States'
bringing about a settlement of the
reparations question and thua helping
to relieve the financial distress of Eu
rope. Th administration. It ta under
stood. Insists the reparations settle
ment must be made wlthont a can
cellation of the silled debts to this
country. England and France appear
to think this cannot or should not
be done. Mr. Harvey's ndvlce In the
matter Is regarded as valuable and
necessary.
The European nations are skeptical
concerning sn American loan, and the
French especially dislike the Ides
thst Is said to be under consideration,
declaring It bears the stsmp "Made
in Germany." Thomas W. Lamont of
J. P. Morgan A Co. asserted In New
York that the American people have
no Intention of making a loan to Ger
many because that country Is not In
a position t the present time "to In
spire our people with confidence to
bay Its bonds." At the seme time Mr.
Lamont stated conditions nnder which
h believed a German loan might bo
floated In this country at some future
time, not s Urge loan, but enough to
enable Germany "to get over tbe hill."
These conditions were, h said, tbe
settlement of the reparations prob
lem snd the fixing of a definite sum
so thst Germany would b aware of
her obligation. "Following on th
fixation of this sum," he continued,
"Germany must set out on a period
of deflation. There may possibly
come with thst a schem of th allies
for the supervision of such deflation.
Including the administration of Ger
many's customs. Even If a loan ta
advanced I doubt If Germany will be
lent a sum sufficient to discharge her
reparations debt."
UNTIL th silled premiers gather
In Paris on Janusry 2 It will not
be known whst courss Franc will
pursue In regard to sanctions against
Germany. At present Premier Poln
care Is standing Ann. To American
correspondents be said France would
not accept any change In the treaty of
Versailles calling for tho evacustlon
of the Rhlnelsnd within less thsn the
IS yesrs specified In It. He Indicated
that his government wss strongly op
posed to any solution of the repara
tions queatlon which Involved expen
sive French sacrifices, snd that Ger
many must give new guarantees for
future payments In order to obtain s
moratorium.
One result of the rumors of A mer
lean help was the sudden rlxe of the
msrk In Berlin. The people expected
to find prices correspondingly reduced,
but were fooled.
tniHILE the experts at Lausanne
" were drafting tti Near East
peace treaty the confereea continued
to wrangle over th plans for the
control of the straits and certain oth
er matters In dispute. Tctiitcherln's
proposal ci.nceni'ng th Purdanelles

The test performance of a new
Curtisa Pursuit Plane has csused a
sensstion in the Army and Navy ser
vices. Ever since ths Pulitier Race
st Detroit, in which a new sll-American
motor finished in the first four
places, it has been expected that
military planes of a auper-type would
make their appearance at almost any
time. The actual performance of the
first pursuit ship of a series surpasses
expectation. .
In many respects, this aeroplane Is
s departure from precedent It oset
the same Curtisa motor used in the
racing ships st Detroit It to equipped
vith wing radiators, the most radial
advance in the art of cooling a motor
inre 1917, and which reduces the
resistance of the air almost to xero.
These features were expected. The
construction, however, is said to pos
sea, also, a new feature. In that the
'entire machine can be atored 'or a
perlo ' twentv years, if necessary.
