Where the League of Nations Assembly Meets FROMFORTHIVE A Word of Help to Women of Middle Age From Mrs. Raney. GAMBLING DENSl ALMOST ONE THOUSAND RESTED IN HALLS OF CHANCE. AR. Chicago Bootleggers and Drug Sellers Are Caught Officers Find $340,000 In Prisoner's Shirt Dives Raided Under Direction of Police Chief. Chicago. Almost 1,000 arrests were made and gambling paraphernalia val ued at thousands of dollars were seized in a crime drive in Chicago. The drive was started by Charles Fitzmorris, Chief of Police, and Michael Hughes, Chief of Detectives, personally direct ed operations. "Fill up the cells," was the order given by Chief Fitzmorris. The order of the Chief was executed by 300 detectives and police. The jails were tilled. The prisoners, for the most part, were gamblers, but scores of men and boys carrying arms were gathered in. Many had burglar tools. The drive brought in numerous drug sellers and bootleggers. f Balds were centered on notorious gambling dens. How it was carried on is illustrated by the raid on "Artie Ijuin's smoke shop." The place was swarming with gamblers and the tables were loaded with gold and silver. Automobiles loaded with de tectives and police dashed to the curb with drawn pistols, and officers smash ed through doors and into the heart of the dive. Gamblers who attempted to "rush" the police and escape were clubbed. When the place was "mopped up" ten loads of prisoners were hauled away. Gold, silver and currency taken from the gambling tables totaled more than $12,000. Another sensational raid was that on he establishment of "Nick the Creek" Dandalos. Scores were arrested, but only a small sum of money was found. Dandalos was searched. He had $340,000 that he had scooped from the tables hidden inside his shirt. "There was $1,000,000 being gambled in the places we raided," said Chief of Detectives Hughes. - "Where did it coine from? It came from the stick- ups, the jewelry robberies and the pay roll robberies. Saturday night found these crooks in the gambling dens, losing it all. "It's gambling that lures them. They rob and kill just to have something to shoot crapswnd play faro with. If they can't gamble they won't rob." The raids caused a sensation in political quarters, where, it was charge'd, gamblers obtained protection. "Just wait until Mayor Thompson re turns," they said. "He'll show these 'dicks' where to get off." But the Mayor, at West Baden, Ind., on vaca tion, already had heard. He wired Ills congratulations to Chief of Police Fitzmorris. : j " " . p--- j; JL.

GERMANY MAY REVIVE MONARCHY CROWN PRINCE RUPPRECHT OF BAVARIA REGARDED AS KAIS ER'S SUCCESSOR. SLUMP RESULT IN INQUIRY Prices of Building Material Drop Cement Combine Is Alleged. Former Bavarian Crown Prince De. Clares People Are Dissatisfied With the Present Government, and That It Can Not Last Another Year. Earth Slide To Be Costly. Pittsburg, Pa. Damage estimated by engineers at $1,000,000 to $2,000,000 will result from the, great slide of earth and stone which for the past two weeks has been moving steadily down the hillside from Bigelow boule vard to the downtown passenger ter minal of the Pennsylvania Railroad here. Nine steam shovels are working day and night to move the earth as it reached the railroad tracks, and about 5,000 tons are sent out on special trains every 24 hours. The slide began when the city attempted to straighten a curve in the boulevard which fol lows the hillside high above the rail road terminal and connects the busi ness section of the city with the East End district. Some 200,000 cubic yards of earth had been cut from the hill and dumped into a ravine before the engineers discovered that the earth was moving steadily toward the rail road. London. The Express prints what it declares to be the first exclusive In terview given out since the revolution In Germany by former Crown Prince Rupprecht of Bavaria, who Is regarded as Germany's future ruler if the mon archists succeed in the present plans. In his interview the Crown Prince said: "Germany's-financial breakdown is imminent and probably will lead to constitutional changes. I do not be lieve the present regime can last for another year, because everywhere the population is becoming dissatisfied with the present Government. "In Bavaria the feeling in favor of a monarchy is growing daily, but the change will not be made Immediately, because of the rivalry between North j and South Germany, which is taking the form of dynastic and religious in trigues. A monarchy could be pro claimed in Bavaria, but it might lead to trouble in the rest of Germany, and this must be avoided. We do not want Bavaria to be separated from Germany. "Monarchy is not synonymous with militarism. For my part, I would abol ish even ihe present reduced ariiiv, because it is too expensive, and for it I would substitute the militia. The Swiss system of mercenary armies is ruining Germany." Ohioan's Baggage Seized. New York. Alleged failure of G. C, Bardons, of Cleveland, O., a manufac turer, to declare for duty a fur-lined overcoat he wore, and a diamond ring and lace said to have been concealed in his effects, caused Customs Inspec tors here to seize the baggage upon Bardons' arrival from London aboard the steamship Caronia.

ISew lork. Disintegration of the contractor-dealer-labor combines, form- ing New York's alleged "building trust," has begun and prices of con struction materials have dropped since active warfare against these interests was opened, it was revealed by wit nesses before the joint legislative com mittee conducting the investigation. Increased productivity of labor also has been apparent since the commit tee began exposing one scandal after another and tlje grand jury started returning indictments, employers tes tified. With these developments came evidence to show existence of country wide control of production and prices in marble, cement, limestone and other trades.- National associations were throttling those industries, it was alleged. More than a year ago Samuel Unter myer, counsel for the Investigating committee! declared that if given au opportunity to conduct an inquiry -into A those "combinations" he could send prices tumbling. Testimony that the cement trade of the entire country is under the absolute control of a na tional association,, and that there "is a very rock-bound agreement" in the granite and marble industry, was given by Hugh White, Vice President of the George A. Fuller Construction Com pany, one of the largest concerns of its kind, doing business throughout the United States. He expressed the hope that he might soon see "competi tion" in building materials trades and labor. Mr. Untermyer added he want ed to release labor from "the thralldom of blackmail." Proceedings of the day also brought forth evidence that a policeman, Ste pnen .Birmingham, was granted six months' leave from the police depart ment, while he worked under Robert F. Brindell, president of the Building Trades Council, in the "compensation bureau" of the council. Collusion in bidding among contractors and dealers in brick, cement, sand, marble and oth er building materials was intimated during Mr. White's testimony.

Government agents are much concerned over a nation-wide secret referendum now being taken among 500,000 or more members of the Industrial Workers of the AVorld in America to determine whether or not that organization shall affiliate with the Fourth Internationale to be con ducted In Moscow next January, or con tinue as an independent body, it has been learned j J. - The referendum, It Is stated, Is the result of an iuvitation from a special committee appointed by the Third In- rernauonaie to secure the co-opera- non or tne I. w. v. in the- coming meeting, which is expected to be the most important and widely attended of any. The voting has been in' prog ress for more than a month and is expected to be completed early in De cember. While Government agents state pos itively that the headquarters of the referendum Is in Chicago, where a cen tral committee is in charge, they are in complete ignorance of the individual minds directing the work. As a result of many prosecutions of members, they state, the organization has been con verted into a powerful secret society whose activities are even more dan gerous because they no longer are con ducted openly. The membership of 500,000 was attained three years ago and is believed to be largely in excess of that number now. f Coupled with the effort being made by the Third Internationale to enlist the co-operation of the I.
