' WOULD BE INC0NSISTEN1 Passenger Ships Form a 8mall Par) of Our Merchant Marine, He Says, In Reply to Ship Lines' Complain They Face Ruin. New York. American steamshlpi cannot carry or sell liquor In any part of the world, Federal Judge Hand held in a decision dismissing the suit of two American steamship companies to en Join enforcement of the Daugherty prohibition ruling. Judge Hand's ruling granted a tem porary stay to westbound American Bhlp with liquors on board before the date upon which the treasury ruling ii placed in effect. This stay Is similar to the one granted to foreig nlines. "It would be a curious thing,'.' Judge Hand said, "if a country professing un der its fundamental law to forbid th use of intoxicants was to allow them without stint upon ships that sailed under Its flag. The only distinction pressed is that consequences will b disastrous to s.n American merchant marine, if of all other ships at sea oun alone are within this ban. "In the first place, the discrimina tion applies only to passenger vessels, which are a small part of any mer chant marine. The whole argument is, however, ' misconceived, i The 18th amendment Involves the destruction at a blow of property values far greatei than that of the whole passenger fleet. The motives which directed it disre garded ordinary commercial interests. It was a reform based upon the belief that the use of alcohol was one of the great evils of modern life against whose utter extirpation no present rights of property might stand." The ruling was laid down in a de cision supplemental to the one ren dered onMonday dismissing the appli cation of foreign ship lines attacking the valid'ty of the Daugherty holding, that no ship could enter or clear from an American port with liquor aboard. International Mercantile Marine oper ating the American ships Finland, St. Paul and Kroonland, asked Judge Hand after the original decision, for a special ruling as to rights of Amer ican ships on the high seas. He was Joined in thiB request by Reid L. Carr of counsel for the United American line. Mr. Keating said that Judge Hand's decision prohibited the mere presence of liquor on board American ships in any part of the world. "We have not decided on our next step," he said.s "We are considering the advisability to make a request for a supersedeas stay, but we are not yet sure whether we will do that or wait for the regular sitting of the su preme court to present our appeal. Mr. Keating declared that it was likely, however, that the decision would be appealed. He said that if Judge Hand's ruling was sustained by the supreme court it meant the death knell of American shipping as far as passenger traffic was concerned. DANCER QUARRELS; DIE8.
