On board steamship Oscar 1L, by wire less, via steamship Noordam, Dec. 13. A resolution condemning President Wib son's preparedness policy brought a pro test from some of the prominent mem bers of Henry Ford's peace party Inst night when it was presented for adop- ion. The resolution was drawn up by Kev. Jenkins Lloyd and Rev. Charles F. Aked and others who asked that it be signed by all the members of the party as their platform. More than a dozen members, including S. 8. McClure of New York and Judije Ben Lindsey of Denver, refused to sign on the ground that the resolution was unpatriotic. Some even threatened to leave the party after it reaches Europe if the proposed platform is put through. Its supporters said the opponents of the resolution failed to understand the spirit of fords invitation. Ford to-day seut out an appeal to the rulers of Europe, addressed individually to each reigning monarch, which said in part: "We come in this time of troublo not to add to your burdens but to help lift them, not to consider which nations are the most to blame for the disaster that has befallen Kurope but to end the strife, not to intrude ourselves upon your national life and national ideas but rath fr with an earnest desire to understand them and with a heartfelt wish to aid in realising them.

"Therefore, we earnestly entreat you and the rulers of all the other warring nstions to declare an Immediate truce. It the armies stand where thev are.

Hatten mentioned injustice, the in justice of the double standard of moral ty for men and women, and the injus tiee of the condition of society which lets a Jew favored ones live in luxury with out work while thousands who work hard for a living are practically paupers. Pov erty, like disease, has a cause, and to stamp out pauperism we must first do away with the cause. - The greatest cause of poverty, according to the speak er, is alcoholism. Dr. Batten challenged the audience to show him one case of genuine pauperism that cannot be traced to alcohol. In giving his reasons for doing away with the Junior traffic and sale the speak er cited many instances where the use of ah oho! had destroyed the manhood and womanhood of individuals and made thera worse than beasts. One of the heaviest counts against alcohol is the fact that its use by the parent will cause idiocy in the child. Sixty-seven per cent of the insanity in tl world is due to alcohol.

The none of your business" argument was also handled bv the eVcaker, who showed br concrete esses that an evil such as the sale of alcoholic drinks in a community must affect every m-n in it to some ex tent. The address was closed with a final plea to the citizens of Harre to vote for prohibition st the next opportunity. RAILROAD SUED BY TOWN. Bristol R. R. Co.
