AGREES ON PLAN TO
CURB DRINKING EVIL
Total Prohibition Ruled
Out Plans to Encourage
Brewing of Light Beers
and Regulate Public
LONDON, April 27.
The Cabinet gnve further conslderntlon
to the drink problem Inst night, ntul the
Intention Is that Lloyd 'George shall sub
mit the Governincnt'B liquor proposals
to the House of Commons tomorrow.
Although the Cabinet's plans nio not
yet Anally adjusted, It can be ntithnri
tntlvcly stated that tho following nro
the main heads under which the C!ov
crnmont Intends to tako action:
1. Prohibition of tho snlo of Immature
2. Encouragement of brewing lighter
3. Special public houso restrictions In
t. Keduccd hours of sole generally.
6. Compensation for interests affected.
The Cabinet arrived at this program
after a great variety of tempcrnnco
schemes. Total prohibition was ruled
out at the start, and later tho schemes
for prohibition of spirits and expropria
tion of the whole of the licensed houses
In tho kingdom. The Cabinet is greatly
in doubt as to nctly how to frame re
strictions for the areas In which muni
tions arc manufactured. Although thr
big scheme for State ownership Anally
was withdrawn, many ministers oro
loath to part with It. and it Is thought
possible Hint a similar plan on a
smaller scale will bo devised for cer
tain districts It Is understood today
there will be a new regulation pro
hibiting the sale of Immature spirits
under a certain ago and prohibiting
the manufacture of the heavier types
of beers, flood spirits and light beern
are to be encouraged. A uniform plan
will bo put forward regulating tho
hours of snle, and tho facilities for pio
curlng drink will be still further reduced.
Tho plan to place n heavier taxation on
oxoiscable liquors was deAnltcly abandoned.

"Gee, wlnlhers, Pop, look tit 'nt!"
But Pop didn't need to bo told. He had
beaten Willie to It by 30 seconds and was
taking It all In In a way that mado your
"Htep-rleht-up-ladlcs-and Gentlemen - the
sellers at tho biff entrance look like ama
teurs. Pop had stumbled on an Inspiration In
the mornlni?, when SO elephants walking
in pairs In thr, street parade had routed
him to the curb of Uroart street.
"Ilow'il yo like to go to tho circus,
Willie?'' had been tho first question ho
put to Young Hopeful when ho wandered
homo to lunch for no ronton at all.
Willie Is n Montessorl kid, nnd n mero

a. 6-year-old youhgster who had spelled
' o-a-t" at the ago of 3 and progressed
proportionately ever since.
"Very much, fnther," was tho reply,
"If it will glvo you any pleasuro."
Well, them wasn't any Montrssorl In
father's systrm. Ho had learned what
n circus was about the tlmo ho was mas
tering tho three "IPs," and had not for
gotten since. So ho opined It would.
Then Montessorl Willie forgot all about
his early trnlnlng at tho drop of an eye
lid. It was after a Jitney rldo to 19th

uhen hn nnd fnther had filtered through
the turnstiles with the rest of tho croud

fill censed to think llkn Von Hlndenburg
nt his best, nnd became a real, true
American boy. It was a baby lion that
did tho trick
"flee wlnlkers, pop, look lit at!"
And say, gentle reader, perhaps you nro
an old hand at circuses, and havo fallen
for this "greatest show on earth" stuff
so many times that you nro quite certain
there isn't o thrill for you at any clreui

the Senato chamber la&t night when tho
resolution was brought up for a vote.
The Director not only feels that the

likewise ho feels that tho action nf the

favorable Influence upon tho J6,(vl,f00 tran

The amending resolution was first

Having passed the Senate, It will now bo

anticipated. The borrowing capacity of

60.O10.0CO under the provisions of the reso

This would assure continued work on the

CONNELLY SEES FLAWS
IN NEW HOUSING BILL
EX-rOLICEMAN UNDER BAIL
Arrested for Throateninp; Life of
Commissioner Who Dischnrged Him
WILMINGTON. Del.. April 27.-In City
Court today Cecil E. Reeder, a former
policeman, who was dismissed for not
paying his bills, was held under a pence
bond of J10OO. Iteeder went to the homo
of Willlnm II. Bowers, president of tho
Police Commission, nnd threatened to kill
Uownrs and himself unless hn was rein
stated on the pollra force. He was called
to tho City Hall and placed under arrest
The call to nature was obeyed emphati
cally today by Alfred McNeill In Falrhlll
Square, which Is a pretty green spot, es
pecially Just now, at 1th street und La
hlgh avenue. McNeill was playing with
the squirrels and, aa they darted from
tree to tree, he Jumped after them. Of
course, he found It hard to keep pace
with the nimble creatures and his acro
batic stunts from treo to tree attracted
a curious audience of appreciative
"kids." During the hunt McNeill got
hold of a squlrrel'H tall two or three
tlmes.i but It Bllpped away from him
He fallowed one of tho elusive squir
rels almost to the top of a four-story pop
lar tree. It trotted out to the end of a
thin llmbXand gave its pursuer the laugh.
So did tb crowd below. Quito appro
priately, policeman Greentree happened
along, yhm he urged McNeill to come
back to early the hunter was defiant. Ho
intimated thVt nothing less than a Zeppe
lin bomb or V. 12-Inch Bhell could bring
him down untl he caught the squirrel
He waved his arms to give emphasis to
his defiance. Ad then he slipped.
Clattering down through the branches,
McNeill left hlsXcoat on ono limb, his
Ehlrt on anotherand his trousers were
dislocated in several places. The cop saw
that McNeill required serious attention at
once, and called Policeman Morgan. The
latter obtained a wuple of bags, and
when the hunter wib Anally extricated
from the tree he was, carefully wrapped
up and taken before Magistrate Glenn, at
the 4th and York: streets station.
"What's the Idea?" asked the MagU.
"A squirrel always needs a nut." an
Just then the remainder of his clothes
were brought In.
"Now fasten yourself together," said
the Magistrate, "and go home."
It Is 6ome consolation to sleep near oev
eral million dollars, especially If you're
broke. That's the way the members of
the "Mint Julep" gang feel about It. Many
a night they are lulled to sleep by the
clinking of gold, which makes merry
music In their earB and It Is possible,
toq. that the proximity of wealth affects
their dreams. Iut their dreams were
rudely shattered today as they slept In
the small alley In the rear of the United
States Mint by the vigorous taps of po
licemen's clubs, and they awakened to
the realization that two very practical
cops desired an explanation
While two of the gang were explaining
two others darted through the alley and
escaped The pair captured were taken
to the SOth and Buttonwood streets sta
tion. They gave their names as Benjamin
Stokes, of 12th and Locust streets, and
John Donegan, of t33 Falrmount avenue.
"It's pleasant to hear the Jingle of the
money," said Stokes, "and there's a
grating nearby which send up a. comfort
able heat on damp nights." V
"Why don't you go to work and try to
earn some real money?'1 suggested Mag
"We're holding out for better wages at
our trades," said Donegan.
"If you don't promise to go hunt work
and stay away from the Mint," said the
Juge. "Ill send you to a place where
"I don't know," replied McNeill. "I they don't pay either union or nonunion

THE BARKER CRIES.'
Then the crowd steps into the side show,
they suspect they'ro Roiiijr to bo fooled
still they go.
When n manufacturer advertises that his
soap will wash clothes without any labor,
or by simply putting a cake in tho clothes
hamper over night, he is a "barker."
No soap can perform miracles quality
alone measures its value. If you want your
clothes to bo clean, pure, white nnd sani
tary, you must scald them just as they do
in all hospitals, etc.
To get the best results -with the least
effort, soak all white wash over night in
warm water to which Pearl Borax Soap
Powder has been added; rub or turn in
washer next morning, using Pearl Borax
Soap on very soiled parts; scald (don't boil),
rinse, blue nnd hang in sun, if possible, and
your clothes will bo a credit to you.
