All Britain was startled today by the charges made by Sir Hamar Greenwood, chief secretary for be laud, that the Sinn Fetners had plotted to blow up the Liverpool docks and the Manchester power and water plants.

P., aeciarea the charges were false and that they were made to discredit the Sinn Fein. Britain is on the alert for a Sinn Fein outbreak, despite the alleged plans. So far the king's secret agents have been able to prevent and expose tbe warlike steps planned by the Sinn Fein. The government s attitude to ward Ireland was upheld in the house of commons yesterday. For mer Premier Asquith introduced a resolution urging peace be estab lished In Ireland at once and con demning both. Sinn Fein assassins and .the black and tans who con ducted reprisals. This was amend ed, however, so that it became in reality a resolution expressing ad miration of the courage and in tegrity of the British forces in Ire land, and in this form it was pass ed by a big margin.

LARGE CROP ituumous QltS Bumper Yield Seduces Prices Which Are Ab sorbed by Middle Men Washington, Nor. 25. (United Press.) One ton of grain, vegeta bles and fruits for each of the 107,- 090.000 inhabitants of the United States is the response of farmers to the popular appeal of the coun try for more and cheaper food, re ports . to the agriculture depart ment indicated appropriately today Thanksgiving day. Farmers now are harvesting the last of this bumper yield, almost unprecedented in the nation's history..- City dwellers, sitting down today to. their holiday fare, might reflect that the nation's harvest is bounti ful enough to feed every inhabi tant his own weight once each month during the coming 12,' tf the average American resident (includ ing children and infants) is rated at 100 pounds, and there still re mains enough food to .fatten the starving millions in central and southern Europe at the same rate for eight more months. ' Farmers complain that the very bounty of their harvest has brought many of their number to the very verge of ruin because of reduced prices. These, they charge, are absorbed by speculators and mid dlemen and not passed along to the consumer. ' Farmers have made some gains though in land values, which have Jumped 100 per cent in some localities and ' in smaller though substantial . percentages throughout the entire United States, according to agriculture department reports. Even a 10 per cent Jump in land values and machinery would give the tarmera an aggregate proftt of something more than MM.O0M0 H-U estimated. Other: ! government reports are plentiful, showing that the entire nation has enjoyed prosperity of a kind. - Approximately 5,000,000 persons who paid income taxes to the fed eral government, received an aver age income of $3,000, or an aggre gate of ilS.000,000,000 in salaries, rents and dividends. This is more than half of the gigantic sum spent bv the nation during the great war. These figures are based on reports of the internal revenue bureau. " Highest Wages. In the records of the labor de partment are reports showing that millions of workers enjoyed wages highest in history. In addition to earnings that amp ly provided food, shelter, and cloth ing, hundreds of thousands found themselves with remaining funds sufficient to satisfy the need for recreation and luxuries. Accord ing to one estimate, based on gov ernment reports, the nation is buy ing entertainment at theatres, clubs, dance halls, parks and other places of amusement at the rate of nearly $1,000:000,000 a year. A to tal of approximately $2,600,000,000 was spent for articles legally class ed as luxuries, because of a buy ers' or waf tax. which must be paid on them at the time of purchase. AIRPLANES MAKE DASH FOR HONOR Race for Pall tier Trophy Starts frem Mltcael Field Army and 5avy m Contest. Mineola. N. Y, Nov. 25.

(United Press.) The United States was invited by the council of the League of Na tions today to negotiate between Armenia and ' Muatapha Kernel, leader of the Turkihs Nationalists, who is invading that country. It was ' stated that if accepted, no mandatory obligations would be in curred by the United stB Geneva, Nov. 25. No meeting of ue assemuy of the League of Na uons was neld today in order to give the members full time for com mittee work and it is possible there will ne no session tomorrow. While some of the committees are report ed to be progressing with unexnect. ed speed, their prompt decisions are thus far mostly for sure and slow solutions. . League Proceedings. Geneva, Nov. 26. Committee meetings again featured today's session of the assembly of the League of Nations. Several of these bodies, charged with exam ination of projects laid before the assembly and the preparation of reports, are believed to have nearly completed work, and it is expected tnat debate on their conclusions may begin in a few days. ' Distinct lines of cleavage seem to be making their appearance at the meeting of the assembly, dele gates irom tne smaller nations in sisting that the countries they rep resent snouw play an influential role in the work of tbe assembly and the council of the league. Scandinavian and South American representatives are prominent in the conversations occurring at ses sions of the assembly and it is ex pected their leaders are planning to take part in the debates which will begin soon. Honorid Pueyrredon, foreign min ister of Argentina, and one of that nation's representatives, is one of the leaders In demanding that smaller nations should elect four members of the council of the league, and ha seems to have, the support of a number of "influential delegations. Sweden, Norway and Denmark evidently purpose to take to the floor of the assembly fight for amendments to the covenant of the league. In addition, several na tions, have taken decided views re garding the economic blockade, the international court and manaates.1 The proceedings of the assembly, which, are at present really being carried on by the committees, may be considered as merely preliminary to its real work, which will begin when these committees submit re ports and debate begins. , Cater to U. 8. Geneva. Nov. 25. (United Press.) Reports that Senator Medill Mc Cormlck is coming to Europe as an emissary of President-elect Hard ing to make plans for organization of a new "association of nations caused the deepest interest at tbe meeting of the League of Nations assembly here today. Although there was .no official discussion of the reports the wish was expressed by many delegates that McCormlck mieht arrive here in time to be! present at the assembly. v Meanwhile the United States con tinued to exert great influence over the deliberations and decisions of the assembly. The United States was taken into consideration in making every decision. During the discussion of steps to aid Armenia, Arthur J. Balfour, British delegate, sought to se sure a postponement in hope that the United States eventually would Intercede with material and finan cial aid in behalf of Armenia. Rene Vlviani, French representative, sought to defer action on Armenia in the council, for the same reason. The question of disarmament was passed over virtually without ac tion because Japan, Great Britain and France privately refused to con sider reduction in their armies and navies unless the United States also reduced its armament The decision not to admit to membership the states formed from the fragments of the old Russian empire, was baaed on belief that the United States, entertlng the league later, might object to it. The sowers do not want to bind themselves to a policy which the United States might refuse to abide by later, their representatives say privately. Amendments to the covenant also are being delayed Indefinitely, in be lief that it Is more desirable to wait until tbe United States U in. Fair tonfcht with the lowest tem perature about SO degrees.

Washington, Nov. 25. Practical suspension of the nation's business marked the observance of Thanks giving day in Washington today.
