"Legien is anything but satisfied

Legien is out of tune with the entire
p solution of the recent political crisis,
"the correspondent was told, and was
Bk onl3r reconciled to it by his conviction
that a coalition bloc was tho only pos

Rumors were current in Berlin Sun-
day that the radicals under Ernest

New Jersey Contends Action!
Taken for Drouth is Entirely
Entirely Novel Point Brought
Up in Supplemental Brief
Filed by Opponents
WASHINGTON. March 29. The
eignteenlh amendment to the cons'i-j
luiion, Known as the promimion
amendment, is legislative In nature'
and revolutionary in character, accord-!
; ing to Attorney General Thomas F.
McCran of New Jersey, in opening his,
argument before the United States eu-
prome court in New Jersey's suit lo
jhave the amendment declared void'
and the Volstead act unconstitutional.
! Eight points were raised and discussed j
in the argument. ;
Attorney General McCran's brief de
clared that the eighteenth, amendment'
.was not. - consjjiutionullv?,pxpi)Q.seiljJ,

thirds In numbers of both housei affir-'
matively vote for the proposal of the
resolution; that three-fourths of the
stales have not ratified in the consti
( tutional sense.
j Legislation Opposed.
! The brief also declared that the na
tional prohibition act is not appropri
ate legislation; that ther.e is no right
In congress to legislate outside the
words of the amendment; that the
I words "beverage purposes" sufficient
ly describe the limit within which on
sros's will legislate and that the term
'intoxicating liquors" is its own defl
nition; that the Volstead law fixing
the standard is oppressive and uncon-'
stitutional in that it attempts to inter
fere with the rights of physicians and1
druggist's; to furnish liquor; Mhat the,
institutions owned and conducted by)
the state of New Jersey are hampered!
and restricted by the arbitrary act of
congress. The history of New Jorjcy1
and its relation to the federal govern-,
ment, both before and since the adop
tion of the constitution, was discussed'
In the brief, while the rights which j
the states surrendered for tho purpose!
of forming a more perfect union aro'
detailed at length. I
Other Amendments. '
The brief also stated that the 3ev-'
enleenth amendment to the constitu-
Hon prior to the eighteenth, ".prohibi-l
lion amendment," are subjects relating!
to the structure and form of the gov-i
eminent and are not amendments rev-j
olutlonary in character and which do-1
prive the stales of their sovereign'
powers. :
In a supplemental brief filed by Now,
Jersey's attorney general an entirely i
novel point is made "that the right to
amend the constitution is a right of
the people of the United States as dis
tinguished from the people -of a par
ticular state; that the .people of tht
United. States have only national pow
ors, the police power being reserved
to the states, and the right of internal
police being a right of tho people of
New Jersey over which the people of
the United States have no control.
This right may not be taken from
them without their consent."

Growers of Five Counties Take
Initiative and Others Decide
i To Join Move
i District Association Commit-1
! tec Vill Select Business Man- 1
ager to Handle Things
I JEROME, Ida.. March 24. Twenty-1
seven men from Gooding. Lincoln.
Jernmp. Twin Frills M'tnilnk-ri V.lmnre.
land Power counties representing the
! owners of small flocks of sheep in
those counties, met in the court housir,
, at Jerome on Thursday. March 25, to
uliscuss the formation of a district wool
I pool. The result of this meeting was
I the formation of an organization to be
known as the Central Southern Idaho
Sheepbrceders' and Wool Growers' as
jsoclation. the purpose of which is lo
advance the Interests of sheep breed
' ing and Avoolvjjrowing and especially
odjojibwmujn2ithoda of-iimrkct-jTngvoItjjP1!
The first five counties mentioned
above are expected lo pool about 13
'carloads or 330.000 pounds of wool in
this organization. In addition to the
jcountles mentioned above. Camas and
Blaine counties have made known
J their desire to pool and sell, their wool
j through this district organization
Largest Pool 'of State.
I If this pool is as successful as the
organizers have good reason to believe,!
! it will be teh largest pool in the state
!of Idaho. This distinction has previ
ously been held by the Boise Valley
Sheep Breeders' and Wool Growers' as
jsociation. which last year pooled over
! 176,000 pounds of wool. In 1917 this
association netted tho grower approxi
I mately 13 cents per pound more for hl3
woll than ho would otherwise have re
ceived. In 191S they netted their mem
bers about seven cents more than the
average bids received for small clips,
and in 1919 tho amount was about 10
cents per pound. Naturally the new
association is desirous of doing equally
as well. Should thev be able to do as
well in 1920 as the "Boise Valley pool
has averaged for tho past three year.s
it will menn that about $3,000 more
will be added to the Income of farm
flock owners In Lincoln, Gooding,
Jerome, Twin Falls, and Minidoka
counties alone.
Wool to Be Graded.
Several counties in this district had
wool pools last year. Practically the
same methods of pooling will, bo fol
lowed by the district organization as
was followed by tho county pools last
year In so far as collecting, and stor
ing, and shipping the wool Is con
cerned. However, instead of having a
number of men in charge of the weigh-ing-in
and grading of the wool, one
man, who will be the business man
ager of tho association, will ovorsee
tho weighing, grading and storing of
the association wools, It is expected
that the wool will be graded only into
fine wools, medium wools, and coarse
long wools, this bcin;r considered sut
ficieht for all practical purposes.
The county wool pooling organiza
tions will remain practically the same
as they were Inst year, the chief dif
ferences being that the collecting,
(grading, and the selling powers will
I be transferred to tho district organ
I izatlon.
Each county will have one repre
sentative in (he executive committee
jof the district association. Those men
will select a business manager and
will have the authority to carry on all
.business of the district association.
iThoy will act as tho selling committee
and accopt or reject the bids received
for the wool. In case no satisfactory
bids are received, it is. probable that
the wool will be consigned to a thor
oughly reliable wool commission firm.
Another meeting has been called for
Thursday, April 1, and it is expected
lhat the full organization will be com
pleted at that time.

which swept this section late yesterday were' .pjaced to-day at about I
fifty dead" and i0'0iti'125 injured. Approximately one hundred ;
homes were destroyed 'and the property damage is estimated at(
, 500,000.
CHICAGO, March ?9 Material augmentation of the known death list of
seventv-three and property damage estimates of many millions of dollars
loomed toda'- when restoration of wire communication would permit com-
i pllatlon of accurate reports from the six central west states hit by a series
of tornadoes yostf-n.
I The moFi foreboding rumors early today were from the southern Michigan
I peninsula and the rural districts of Indiana and Ohio. In thoso slaies wires
I were prostrated in every direction and it was said it might be days berore
I some of the c'jinmun'.ties were heard from.
The Chicago district, with 29 deaths, was the heaviest sufferer, accord

preserve order and prevent looting. '
Fmm Elgin tho tcinado swept northeastward around Chicago, smashing
through Melrose Park, Evanston. Wilmette and other suburbs with a trail of
I wreckage atnl deaths. Soldiers of a national guard regiment which was called
! out when tho extent of the damage became known also assumed control at
Melrose Tar and WI'mette.
The twlstc-rs. which swept through Michigan and Ohio and Indiana appar
ently were distinct tom the Illinois storm.
In each instance, however, it was the same tale wrecked houses, prostra
tion of wire communication and a death list.
A dozon or moie Michigan cities were cut off from the rest of the world
and it' was rcportod they were in the path of the storm which swept north-eastward
across the ctato from Lake Michigan. The storm was said to have
I been particularly veve:e in tho vlcinllics of Kalamazoo, Battle Creek, Lansing.
Bay City nnd Sng.naw.
In Ohio and Indiana, however, the tornado's fury apparently was wreaked
! on rural districts. None of the large cities was hit. according to reports.
Sweeping over the open countr and semi-isolated districts it was believed
a number of persons had been killed and much property damaged.

wrecks which sway in the wind in momentary danger of catapulting into I
the streels. . 1
A three-story brick business block was totally destroyed and in falling i
crushed an adjoining shoe store. s I
Efforts to restore light and power facilities have proven unavailing and i
Elgin remains wlthtut lights. All factories without their own power are.
shut down. No newspapers can bo printed here today.
The nignt passeu quietly and there wero no reports of attempted looting.
Elgin remains cut off from surrounding towns and roads rendered impas

the damage in the outlying districts. The, Tew persons who have been able to
reach Elgin report farm houses and dairy barns blown down, with heavy loss j
to cattle.
Southern States Also Hit
ATLANTA, Gn., March 29 Because of demoralized" wire conditions few ad
ditional details of last, night's tornado which struck Georgia and the eastern
part of Alabama had come in early today. The death list still stood approx
imately forty, with many hundreds injured. Properly damage -is expected

reported dead there. Agrocela, a small settlement in Alabama,, had a death
list of five.
Reports from pracilcally all over Georgia and Alabama told of heavy down
pours of rain and winds that reached cyclonic velocity. In many places the
buildings were razed or their roofs were carried away, trees uprooted and
hayoc was wrought generally. It wns feared the rains would cause the
rivers to overflow thoir banks and add to the suffering.
Railroad telephone and telegraph servico today either was suspended or.
greatly impaired and last night many places were In total darkness as electric '
