market today. Prices eased off at
the start because of the lower ca

later, whea it was learned that the
resident was to deliver his mes

everyone expected a bullish docu
ment and they governed themselves
'accordingly. There wa heavy buy

sage waa gives oat there was a
little pressure from early buyers,
the document being less bullish
than expected. Cash wheat pre
miums were unchanged. Minne
apolis cash wheat premiums were
unchanged - to lc higher. Export
demand Is slow. .A late estimate
of the world's requirements is 640,
000,000 bushels, or somewhat less
than earlier estimates.
Corn was easy in tone. The
heavy movement of corn, receipts

ed enough pressure to make bulls
support the market and Weir pow
er was weakened a little thereby.
Cash corn premiums were He low

made to go to store. . '

held over from yesterday, but the
trade was in fair shape.

ful to Turkey. Of these the first
was the inclusion of the Sea of
Marmora in the ' definition of the
straits, because . preparations for
defense on the shores of this sea
were necessary for the defense of
Anatolia and Thrace and yet would
not affect the liberty of passage for
vessels. -
Wants Troop KoTements.
Another point he made was that
it was needless to hare a demili
tarized sone around the Bosphorus.
It was sufficient, he considered, to
indicate that there would be no
fortifications, either land or naval
on either shore.
His third point was in connection
with the allied suggestion that in
the demilitarized ' zone. . there
should be no movement of troops.
He thought that such movement
should be permitted because the
zones in question connect the two
parts of the country.'
Pleads for Defense Measures.
Again he contended that in ord
er to defend the shores of the Sea
of Marmora by a Turkish fleet
would have to keep arsenals and
other naval equipment in Constan
tinople and the straits. He thought
also that the limits of demllltarlz
ed zones were too great end con
tended that the four in the straits
should be recognized aa under
Turkish sovereignty.
As to the Qallipoli peninsula, he
thought a minimum means of de
fense ought to be assured to pre
serve it against surprise attack.
After hearing Ismet Pasha's ad
dress, the conference recessed un
til afternoon to give the allies time
to study the Turkish suggestions.
some isuropean delegates ex
pressed the opinion that the points
raised by the Turks should not
make a final accord diScult
During the session Foreign Min
ister Tchitcherin of Russia again
insisted that the straits should be
closed to all except Turkish war-
snips. He believed, he said, that
the setting up of buffer states like
Turkey would prevent future

, A saturnalia of bootlegging seems to be no exaggerated phrase to describe the startling
state of affairs to which the Adniinistration calls the nation's attention. Inspired Wash
ington dispatches tell us that the present Prohibition enforcement methods are "debauching
and debasing the entire country;" that the President is "deeply concerned over a belief that
the moral fiber of the American people is deteriorating thru the open disrespect shown for
the effort to enforce Prohibition ;" and that "the growth of bootlegging, the temerity of rum
runners, and the serious insinuations against Federal enforcement officers have been worry
ing the Administration for some months," until finally "With Prohibition enforcement rec
ognized as on the verge of absolute collapse in four States and in a condition of serious de
moralization elsewhere in the country, President Harding considered today the issuance
of a solemn public appeal to all good citizens to discourage bootlegging as a last resort to ad
minister the law." 1 I
"One way to make Prohibition prohibit," declares the New York Evening Post, "woqd be to
arrest some of the prominent and respectable people who buy what the', bootleggers sell."
The leading article in The Literary' Digest this week takes up the subject of the enforcement of
the Prohibition laws and presents the opinions of leading newspapers as to ways and means.
