Prominent Democrats Say
Alien Property Custodian
May Be Attorney General
Washington, Jan. 14. —A Mitchell
Palmer, alien property custodian,
and Democratic National Commit
teeman from Pennsylvania was
seriously discussed in official circles
yesterday as tile logical successor of
Attorney General Gregory. Demo
crats powerful in official councils did
not hesitate to say that Mr. Palmer
place and the prediction was free
ly made that he would be named
when Mr. Gregory relinquishes his
duties on March 4.
! The strongest argument advanced
in his favor was that he had so
well and fully performed his duties
as alien property custodian as to
expose more quickly than the De
partment of Justices the intricacies
and evils of the German propaganda.
In his Investigation in each of Ger
man owned property in the United
States Mr. Palmer uncovered mil
lions of such property and also ex
posed the German propaganda plot.
While the Department of Justice
was investigating and reaching no
results Mr. Palmer promptly went
to the bottom of things, found the
properties sought and obtained
documentary evidence that connect
ed Germans and German-Americans
with bomb plots and crimes against
the government.
The activities of Mr. Palmer in
spired the inquiry into the brewery
slush fund, and led to the extension
of the inquiry into German outrages.
Against the wishes of the Depart
ment of Justice Mr. Palmer made
public the agreement of Arthur Bris
bane with the breweries for the pur
chase of the Washington Evening
Times. With opposition expressed
by Washington Mr. Palmer insisted
that E. Lowry llunies, the United
States district attorney in western
Pennsylvania, prosecute the Penn
sylvania breweries for their vioia-
Girl Guardian Who Kept
Down List
Doughboys and sailors alike agree
that when a fellow has been away
from home for a long time it's
mighty nice to be "mothered" and
looked after. And the mothering is
all the more acceptable if adminis
tered by a pretty girl. That's the
reason Miss Netta D. Ross has been
such a success behind the counter
lof the information bureau of the
American Y. M. C. A.'s Eagle Hut
in London. This photograph will
be recognized by hundreds of men
who went to her with inquiries
ranging from how to get back to
camp or ship before they were listed
as A. W. O. L.
tion of the corrupt practices laws,
which led to convictions and stopped
the practice in Pennsylvania of the
whisky and beer ring throwing a bar
rel of money into elections.
10,000 Reserves Summoned to
Colors; Prisoners Taken by
Police Number 2,000'
By Associated Press
Buenos Aires, Jan. 14. —It was de
cided yesterday by the President and
the cabinet to declare martial law
In Buenos Aires. The date for the
declaration )as not been announced.
Ten thousand reserves have been
summoned to the colors and the
military cadets have been called
The total number of prisoners
taken by the police now is reported
to be about 2,00. The Interrogation
of Russian prisoners reveals that
nearly all of them were fugitives
from Russia on account of revolu
tionary activities there.
The attacks Thursday night on po
lice headquarters and police stations
were more serious. It is learned, than
was at first admitted. The plan was
to take all police stations, then the
other government buildings and to
proceed with the overthrow of the
government immediately.

of the Soviet government," is report

ceived while resisting arrest.

year men at SIOO per month; sec
ond year men at SIIQ per month;
and third year men at the present
salary of slls per month.
The chief recognizes that it would
be impossible to grade the present
police force, but suggests that it
would be no more than reasonable
to grade the new men who may be
added from time to time.
Asks Reserve Force
The reserve force recommended
would be a great factor in building
up a force of efficient policemen, he
feels. The men on the reserve list
would do all the extra work, such
as being detailed to dances, public
meetings, weddings, baseball, foot
ball or any other events where the
services of a patrolman might be
needed. The reserve officer thus
would get enough work to earn a
livelihood, and be able to report
at police headquarters for duty at
any time.
The men would be kept on the
reserve list for a period of six
months and if they made good then
would be eligible for the first regu
lar appointment. In case they fail
ed' to develop ability as patrolmen
Within the six months, they would
be dropped from the reserve list.
Need Small Automobile
A Ford touring car would answer
the purposes of the "hurry-up" au
tomobile recommended for the de
partment. Chief Wetzel declares that
the department is badly in need of
a small car for this work, so that
when a call is received, stating that
a murder or robbery is committed,
or that "there is a burglar in the
house," the detectives and patrol
men can jump into the waiting ma
chine and quickly be taken to the
scene of the crime. The car could
also be used for the purpose of run
ning down automobile thieves and
breaking up the "joy-riding" prac
The record for, "the recovery of
stolen property established by the
department during 1918 was excel
lent, the report shows. Of a total
of $82,943 worth of property re
ported stolen, $11,170.50 worth was
recovered. Fifty-nine of sixty-eight
automobiles stolen were recovered.
Many of these cars were taken by
"Joy-riders," and usually were found
a day or two later where the thieves
abandoned them. Saturday four
boys were arrested for instigating
the practice, and are being held for
court. Other thieves arrested dur
ing the year for stealing automo
biles are serving Jail sentences.
Many Arrests Made
There was a total of 2,246 arrests
and fines and cost amounting to
$12,347.84 were collected. In July
258 arrests were made, the largest
number in any month of the year.
During that month $1,514.10 was
collected in fines and costs. Costs
received from the county amounted
to $1,701.09, so that the total
amount received from all sources
was $14,098.93.
The report contains a tribute to
JANUARY 14, 1919.
Patrolman W. Melvin Kepford, who
on the night of October 30 was
killed when an automobile struck
him as he stepped into the street
at Chestnut and Fourth, • where he
was detailed for traffic duty.
The patriotism of the members
of the force, in their zealous pursu
ance of their duty during war times,
when a great amount of extra labor
was placed upon them, came in for
its share of praise from the police
head. Captain Joseph P. Thompson,
Lieutenant J. Frank Page,' and the
members of the detective bureau,
also received the chief's thanks for
t'nelr efficient service.
Seven in l". S. Service
Mention was made of the seven
members who went into the military
service. They were Patrolmen
George J. Shoemaker, John K.
Spangler, John S. Dye and Theo
dore A. M. Magnelll, and Detec
tives Glen G. Allison and David
Wills. Patrolman Shpemaker and
Detective Allison, both of whom are
lieutenants, were seriously wounded
in France.
The number of arrests, and the
fines and costs imposed during the
year, were as follows:
January, 168, arrests, $972.80
fines; Feruary, 138 arrests, $797.67
fines; March, 210 arrests, $1,463.47
fines; April, ISP arrests, $469.90
fines. May, 221 arrests, $820.56 fines;
June, 196 arrests, $786.99 fines; July,
258 arrests, $1,514.10 fines; August,
237 arrests, $1,182.98 fines; Sep
tember, 225 arrests, $1,051.01 fines;
October, 113 arrests, $717.35 fines;
November, 185 arrests, $1,355 fines;
December, 172 arrests, $1,219 fines.
"In closing my report," adds
Chief Wetzel, "I desire to express
my appreciation and thanks to His
Honor, the Mayor, and to the mem
bers of City Council and to other
city officials, for the uniform courte
sies extended to me during the past
year, and to the members of the
police bureau for their hearty co
operation in the work of the bureau
during this period."

Kansas City, Mo., Jan. 14.— An ar
tide on the league of n&thma. thg
last contribution that Colonel The*,
dore Roosevelt prepared for the K "-
sas City Star, appeared in that nwwm
paper yesterday. The editorial was
dictated Friday, January S, and Ms
secretary expected to take the tyfe*
copy to him for correction oa the fal
lowing Monday. Instead she wee nod
lied early that morning of hie deaths
The article follows:
"It is, of course, a serious miefMe
tune that our people are not lettlef
a clear Idea of what Is happening
on the other side. For the moment
the point as to which we are foggy
is the league of natlona We all of
us earnestly desire such a league,
only we wish to be sure that It will
help and not hinder the caufte of
world peace and justice. There is
not a young man in this country
who has fought or an old man wfc*
has seen those dear to him light who
does not wish to minimise the ehaaoo
of future war. But there is not m
man of sense who does not know that
in any such movement, if too mode
is attempted, the result is either fMI
ure or worse than failure. • • •
i "Air. Wilson's recent utterances
give us absolutely no clue as tm
whether he really Intends that at
this moment we shall admit RusMa.
Germany, with which, incidentally,
we are still raging war, Turkey.
China and Mexico Into the league oa
a full equality with ourselves. Mr.
Taft has recently defined the par*
poses of the league and the limita
tions under which it would act in a
way that enables most of us to say?
we very heartily agree in principle
with his theory and can without
doubt cpme to an agreement on spe*
ciflc details.
Would it not be well to begin
with the league which we actually
have In existence, the league of the
Allies who have fought through this
great war? Let us at the peace table
see that real justice Is done as among
these Allies and that, while the
sternest reparation is demanded from
our foes for such horrors as those
committed in Belgium, Northern
France, Armenia and the sinking of
the Lusltpnia, nothing should be
done in the spirit of mere venge
ance. Then let us agree to extend
the privileges of the league as rapid
ly as their conduct warrants it to
other nations, doubtless discriminat
ing between those who would have
a guiding part in the league and the
weak nations who would be entitled
to the privileges of membership but
who would not be entitled to a guid
ing voice in the councils.
"Finally make it perfectly clear
that wo do not intend to take a po
sition of an international Meddle
some Matty. The American people
do not wish to go into an oversea*
war unless for £. very great causa
and where the issue is absolutely
plain. Therefore, we do not wish to
undertake the responsibility of send
ing our gallant young men to die In
obscure lights in the Balkans or
in Central Europe or in a war wa
do not approve of. Moreover, tha
American people do not intend to
give up the Monroe Doctrine. Let
civilized Europe and Asia introduce
some kind of police system in tha
weak and disorderly countries at
their thresholds. But let the United
States treat Mexico as our Balkan
peninsula and refuse to allow Euro
pean or Asiatic Powers to Interfere
on this continent in any way that
implies permanent or semiperma
nent possession. Every one of our
Allies will with delight grant this
request if President Wilson chooses
to make It, and it will be a great mis
fortune If It is not made.
"I believe that such an effort mada
moderately and sanely, but sincerely
and with utter scorn for words that
are not made good by deeds, will be
productive of real and lasting inter
national good."
