Breakdown of the Prohibition
Act Gives Harding Fear.
President and His Advisers Meet to
TaJk of Enforcement Failure —May
Appeal to Public for
Washington, Nov. 25.—Complete
breakdown in liquor law enforcement,
bringing with it a contempt for all
law' and, graver still, a lack of full
measured respect for American insti
tutions, is giving President Harding
and other administration leaders
grave concern. The entire time of
the cabinet session Friday was given
to consideration of the failure to make
the country measurably dry.
Holds People Accountable.
The cabinet concluded that the peo
ple were to be held accountable for
the failure rather than the law. An
official statement made after the cab
inet meeting as to the situation
throughout the country as far as pro
hibition is concerned created a mild
sensation in Washington because it
was so in contrast with official an
nouncements made over a long period
of months by Prohibition Commission
er Haynes, which in every instance
proclaimed a growing respect for the
law' and an increase in sentiment for
law enforcement.
Concerned by Disregard.
The concern of the President and
his advisers is primarily with the
menace to the country seen in the dis
regard for the prohibition law by
otherwise law-abiding citizens.
The cabinet discussed w'ays and
means of strengthening law enforce
ment and regard for the prohibition
laws and the eighteenth amendment.
The conclusion was that some form
of appeal to the people was neces
sary. A means is being sought to get
the support and help of the conscience
driven, government-loving members of
the community that they will not per
mit or countenance violation of the
liquor laws any more than other laws.
Reported Klan Invaded Capitol at
Washington in Full Regalia—Con

viding for an investigating committee
of three senators and four members of
the house. The committee would in
quire also into assertions that the
state, war and navy and other gov
ernment buildings have been made use
or for klan ceremonies.
Federal Control Must Continue Until
January 1, the President Tells
Director C. 8. Spens.
Washington, Nov. 25. —Federal con
trol of coal distribution must be con
tinued until January 1, President
Harding decided. C. S. Spens, fed
eral fuel distributor, called on the
President to resign his office, but after
discussing the situation agreed to re
main in service until that date and
to continue in effect the present su
pervision or a modification of it until
the first of the year.

W. E. Robb, former pastor, performed
his second legal execution, springing

victed slayer of George Fosdick, a Des

Eagles Change Color.
The young eagle is clothed in three
kinds of garments before it reaches
maturity. During the first year it is
black, the second year slate-colored,
the third year brown and white. It
might be said that the bald-headed
eagle is not bald. It is so called from
the white ruff of feathers about its
head. The three different appearances
of the young eagle one time provoked
a strange misunderstanding among
bird observers. It was thought that
they were three different species—the
black, the George Washington and the
bald. The eagle is one of the Fal
conidae, which includes hawks and all
similar birds of prey.
Famous Disappearing Island.
The most famous of disappearing Is
lands is the fairy island of St. Bren
dan, which was said to lie to the south
west of Ireland, to be frequently seen,
yet to vanish when any mariner sailed
towards it. That there wqs once such
an island is clearly proved by its men
tion in an old treaty in which the king
of Portugal ceded certain islands to
Castile. Among these islands is men
tioned St. Brendan.

kidneys are apt to feel old at sixty.

kidneys some time ago and had to
get up at night two or three times to
pass the kidne3 7 secretions, which were
accompanied by a burning sensation.
It hurt me to stoop or straighten, and
it was hard for me to keep going at
my work. I was so lame and run down s
I didn’t know what to do. I read about!
Doan’s Kidney Pills being good for;
kidney trouble, so j went to Swift’s J
Drug Store and got two boxes. When !
I had finished taking them I was rid of {
the trouble and have never had a return!
of it since. I am pleased to endorse j
Doan’s Kidney Pills.”

simply ask for a kidney remedy—get;
Doan’s Kidney Pills—the same that Mr
Nelson had. Foster-Milburn Cos., Mfg. 1

the newly elected senator from lowa.
President Harding Presents Plea to
Both Houses in Person—Says
Fleet Necessary.
Washington, Nov. 22.—Enactment of
the administration merchant marine
bill was urged upon congress by Presi
dent Harding as necessary to relieve
the government of present “staggering
losses” in operation of the war-built
merchant fleet, and to establish a pro
gram of assured shipping to serve the
nation in war and give a guaranty of
commercial independence in time of
Personally addressing a joint ses
sion of the house and senate, the ex
ecutive declared an uctual monetary
saving to the government would re
sult from the proposed law. He chal
lenged every insinuation of favored
Interests and the enrichment of the
special few at the expense of the pub
lic treasury. The legislation, he as
serted, automatically guarded against
enrichment or perpetual bestowal.
The President declared that three
courses of action are possible, and the
choice among them is no longer to be
“The first is constructive. Enact
the pending bill under which I firmly
believe an American merchant marine,
privately operated, but serving all the
people and always available to the
government in any emergency, may
be established and maintained.
“The second is obstructive. Con
tinue government operations and at
tending government losses and dis
courage private enterprise by govern
ment competition, under which losses
are met by the public treasury, and
witness the continued losses and de
terioration until the colossal failure
ends In sheer exhaustion.
“The third is destruction. It involves
the sacrifice of our ships abroad or the
scrapping of them at home, the sur
render of our aspirations..”
Troops to Leave Shantung Dec. I—Mil
itary Operations Begun Against
the Chinese Bandits.
Peking, Nov. 25. —Japan will vacate
Shantung on Dec. 1, making heavy
concessions to China.
Military operations have been be
gun against the band of bandits ter
rorizing Honan province, and the
brigands have threatened to kill the
missionaries they have in captivity.
The bandits have retreated from the
railway zone on the approach of
troops. An early release of the for
eigners therefore is unlikely.
Center of Irish Capital in Fierce Up

Dublin, Nov. 24.—The whole center
