Prohibition Forces Will Fight Against
HOPE TO CUT OUT CLAUSE
Conservatives Believe House Gone
Far as It Dare With Drastic
Washington, July 20.-A fight to
strike from the prohibition bill a
clause "that it shall not be unlawful
to possess liquor in one's dwelling"
will be made tomorrow in the l-Iousb
by the prohibition forces. This was
made known today by members, who
declared the bill as now framed per
mitted wholesale hoarding by persons
reported to have put away enough
wines and liquors to last them the rest
of their lives. There was no state
ment from Chairman Volstead, of the
judiciary 'committee, in charge of the
"dry" fight on the floor, as to whether
he would accept an amenhnient to
this effect. The radicals said frankly
they had little hope of changing thle
bill in this respect without the con
sent of the committee chairman.
The general view, however, was that
the louse had gone about as far as
conservatives thought wise with dras
tic provisions. For the past week many
prohibitionists have be-n urging elim
ination of certain severe restrictions
without success. Some of them said
today 'f the right of home possession
was stricken out it would simply add
to the public -clamor against certain
features of the bill by persons sin
cerely anxious to see strict enforce
ment of all prohibition laws. There
were indications that some members
were inclined to kick over the traces
at the attempt to race through wi th
the bill, when it will be a week or
ten days before the Senate judiciary
committee concludes hearings. The
cc casion for such great haste was not
explained by "dry" leaders beyond
the statement that they wanted to get
the bill out of the way and forget it.
Republican Leader Mondell said the
measure would be taken up tomorrow
and kept before the House until
passed, but members said then haLd
quit predicting when a vote might b.
