'‘Fine Brood of Criminals”
Fostered by Illegal Trade
in Liquor.
Harrisburg. Pa.. Jan. 2.—Governor
Sproul told the members of the Pennsyl
vania legislature today that it is patent
that prohibition enforcement laws, fed
eral and state, are not working well
in Pennsylvania and that, in other states
having the kind of laws -which the
critics of Pennsylvania legislation de
mand, the results are, in his opinion,
no better.
‘ In New York and in New Jersey,
jUjrne the type of laws which are de
sired hers have been enacted,” Gov
ernor Sproul said, "the disregard for
prohibition is fully as much in evidence
as in Pennsylvania. Even in states
which have bad prohibition for years,
there has been much more illicit trade in
intoxicating liquors than before the pass
age of the federal enforcement act.”
"This situation,” he Eaid, "is most
discouraging and dangerous, and is par
ticularly menacing to a free lanu.
"Undoubtedly much of the banditry'
and other crimes now harassing the
country have their genesis in the school
of outlawry fostered by the illegal trade
of intoxicants,” the governor said. "We
are rearing a fine brood of criminals,
which it will require stern measures to
"The only way out that is now in
sight,” he said, “is a careful artf] con
scientious enforcement of thel law by
the authorities, under severe penalties
for disregard of duty upon the,part of
officials. Until sentiment supports the
dry laws, their enforcement will be ex
tremely difficult and in general their
effect more harmful than beneficial.”

Poincare Offers to Reduce
Amount to 50 Billion
Gold Marks.
Would Exact Guarantees to
Insure Resumption of
Payments Later.
Herrick Heads U. S. Delega
tion Which Will Watch
By the Associated Preu.
Paris. Jan. 2.—Premier Poincare of
France, offered at today’s conference
of Allied leaders a proposal for a reduc
tion of German reparations to fifty
billion gold marks.
The French plan offers a two-year
moratorium, but it exacts productive
guarantees to insure the resumption of
payments later by the Germans.
Under tli* French plan the ( lass C
bonds would lie used to extinguish the
inter-Allied debts.
The Ulas* C bonds mentioned in the
French reparations plan are part of a
series provided for under he London
illtinixtum to Germany issued by the
Allies on May 5. 1921. when the total
of German reprations was fixed at
132,00(1.000 gold marks. It was pro
vided that Germany create three classes
of reparations bonds, based oil tiara
graph 12 of annex 2. of part .VIII of
the treaty of Versailles.
The first class of bonds, or Class A.
for 12.000,000.000 gold marks, were to
be delivered by July 1-
The diplomatic barometer seemed in
clined to take an upward spurt today
as statesman of Great Britain. Fmnce,
Italy ;md Belgium gathered for the <on
ference of permiers. which will grapple
once more with he reparations prob
lem. The atmosphere was much loss
pessimistic than after the termination
of the London conversations last month.
Herrick Arrives at Paris.
Although there was a wide divergence
of viewpoint, particularly between the
French and British, as to how and
when Germany shall meet her obliga
tions. the first signs of a movement to
bring them into harmony nepeared to
be the result of what Le Matin calls
“the invisible pressure of American
Myron T. Herrick. American ambas
sador to France, arrived in Paris from
Cannes and. with Roland W. Boyden,
the American representative with the
reparations commission, will watch de
