The Wall Street Journal says:
'Cigarette production in this coun
try in September amounted to 4,283,
685,000 cigarettes, an increase of
877,000,000 cigarettes over the sr.me
month in 1918. This was the largest
increase in any single month in the
history of the industry in this coun
try, and also canstituted a record
month's output.
- Just how remarkable these figures
are, is shown by the fact that in the
first year after the formation of the
tobacco trust, the total cigarette bus
iness in the country was approximate
ly 3,000,000,000 cigretes. In other
words, a single month's production
is now running at the rate of one and
one-half times the yearly production
at that time.
NEW YORK, Dec. 19. Theft" of

The owner had a special permit

in bond, with the understanding that
it was to be sold for religious pur
poses only. v

NEW YORK, Dec. 22. (United
Pi5ss. This New Year's eve, despite
its dryness, will be the liveliest in thg
histary of New York, according to
the belief expressed by restaurant and
cabaret managers.
One proprietor said there would
be a bigger crowd eel ibrating than
ever before because "everybody is cu
rious as to what is going to happen.
Next year, he opinioned celebration
of the advent of the New Year will
be truly dead.
Practically all the popular' places
along Broadway today reported ap
plications for reservations for New
Year's eve far in excess of another
year.
Technically it is all to-be a very
dry New Year's eve.
The "wine lists" will offer nothing
more powerful than cider or ginger
ale, but the concensus is there will
be plenty of "hard stuff" in evidence,
'rawn from private stocks. In one
famous cafe, it was announced that
since the supreme court ruled against
a wet Christmas and New Year's the
aiters would not be permitted to
"serve" even the "bring your own."
Corkage charge for this service has
been abolished, it was said, and it will
bo either drink out of the bottle or
drink "soft stuff."
Rum hounds, without liquor to give
them solace, should get seme sort of
kick out of prices on the prohibition
wine ' lists, however, Special Colder
Husset cider tt $2 a quart, sparkling
grape juice at $2.50 a pint, or malted
milk costing 70 cents a glass, is guar
anteed to make those accustomed to
a "ball" at two bits, dizzy.

WASHINGTON, Dee. lJ.- Orders

liners allocated to the United Statet
by the interallied armistice commis

man Payne, of the Shipping Board
said today.
Whether it is the board's intention
to put ?ne liners in commission fo
passenger service wa.i not stated. In
view of the fact officials describe a;
urgent need for passenger tonnage
however, these vessels, aggregating
about G5.000 dead-weight tons, woulc1
be a welcome addition to the Gov
ernment fleet, and the survey or
der was regarded as possibly signifi
cant of an intention to put them tc
service.
The seventh ship in this status, th(
imperator, was turned over to th
British.

the return of some eggs stolen from

WASHINGTON, Dec. 20.- Senator
Arthur Cooper, of Kansas, who de
clared war on "black flag profiteers"
in a recent speech on the senate floor,
has outlined for the United Press the
remedies which he believes should be
applied to the high price evil. Ills
proposed solution of the problem fol
lows. "
Nothing would do as much to stop
profiteering as to jail the robbers who,
have made fortunes the last year 01
two by gouging the public on food,
stuffs, fuel and other (necessities of
life. About 12,000 brand new mill
ionaires have been created In this
country during the war and In th
year just drawing to a close. It is
no trouble to find profiteers of tht
rank and the class in that crowd, I
think we now have all the laws nec
essary to convict. The history of si'
the government's anti-trust prosecu
tions in 25 years does not show a sin
gle individual ever served a jail sen
tence for a violation. The country
would like to see that record broken
and there was never a better time to
get action than right now.
Until this orgyof high prices is
stopped there should be a limitation
on profits, not price-fixing, but th
government should.sce that the busi
ness concern makes public the cost of
its goods and that it does not take
more than a fair profit, as is being
done in Canada. ;
It would help some if we could end,
'he gambling in foodstuffs on the big
exchanges of New York, Chicago and
other cities.
The gambler has no place In hu
man society. It will take new legis
lation to do that. I am for it. The
srang of stock jobbers and prototers
who have in the last year unloaded
millions of worthless stocks on the
gullible public should be put out
business, All issues of railroad and
other securities should have govern-'
ment approval. That will require
a federal blue sky luw, and this conJ
gress should not hesitate a moment
in enacting such legislation.
Wireless From U. S.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 20. Ex

mercial messages by radio between
California and the Hawaiian Islands,
Guam, the Philippines and Japan on
a much more extensive rcale will be

cently completed by the Navy De

Through the use of modem high

be possible to transmit and receive
more than 100,000 words a day be,

200,000 words a day between San
Francisco and San Diego and Hawaii
and about 1000 words a day on a

The Hawaii-Japen circuit, operat
