Will Mean Sacrifice From
llie Americans, He
Paris, Feb. 3.—The pussage by the
American 'Congress of the bill ap
ilßprinting $100,000,000 for relief
n Europe "will lift a load of fear
roni the hearts of millions of people
n Europe," declares Herbert C.
Hoover, director general of relief.
Mr. Hoover outlines the use to which
.he money is to be put and the means
already taken for the relief of var
ious peoples.
"There is no question as to> the
acrificc it will call for from the
American people to provide this re
ief appropriation, as it comes now
n a period when we have so many
difficulties and problems of our own
■>eople to solve In the rehabilitation
>t our normal national life," sajs
;ho statement.
"The usual tangible relief to the
newly liberated peoples will not be
delayed even by the period required
o ship foodstuffs from the United
states under this appropriation be
cause the War, Navy and Treasury
Bepartments and the United States
food administration already have 100
ships in European ports or headed
•owards Europe in addition to our
re-established relief of Belgium and
N'Orthern France, Rumania and
Czecho Slovakia under the old war
eglslation. The new appropriation
:>y Congress enables us to extend this
work by giving credits to those 1
countries for which there was no
such legislation."

Report to Conference on This
Subject Is Believed
Paris, Feb. 3.—To-day President
Wilson will officially assemble at the
Hotel do Crillon the members of the
Peace Conference iCommission as a
Society of Nations. It is announced
that a report to the conference on
this subject is imminent.
President Wilson spent most of
Saturday morning at work in his
private office. Instead of availing
himself of the services of a stenog
rapher he applied himself assidu
ously to the typewriter, which is
taken as an indication that he was
preparing some paper requiring the
most thoughtful possible considera
tion. Yesterday was the first quiet
Sunday he has had since he. landed
on foreign soil.

The liquor interests have tried to
give the impression that Mr. Sproul
intends to cheat the thousands of
voterfe of Pennsylvania, who accept
ed the gubernatorial candidate's
pledge on ratification at 100 per
cent. The Governor has been show
ing by his quiet and effective work
for ratification that he "kept the
Some of the men who are,poten
tial in the management of the Re
publican party in the state have been
able to get their ear to the ground
and fall into line behind the Gov
ernor's leadership, even if their
connections in the past have been
"wot." They have been passing the
word to their followers that they
would keep hands off and the legis
lators, who follow their leadership
have been told they are free to vote
as they please. 'Among these poten-i
tial figures is Senator Edward 41.
Vare, of Philadelphia, and some
others who have not been aligned
with the Vares.
There are ninety-nine of the
House pledged to vote for ratifica
tion, and the position taken by Sena
tor Vare and other leaders means
that more than the necessary five
votes are to give the required 104
votes in the House will be in line
Tuesday morning. Names of these
legislators could be given. After
the House has done its part in the"
ratification program, there is no rea
son to doubt that the necessary
twenty-six votes will be waiting in
the Senate to complete the job.
When the ratification legislation
is put of the way, it will be followed
with bills to enforce prohibition. The
"wets" are making plans to fight
for a definition of intoxicating
liquors which would permit of a pos
sible five per cent, alcoholic content
in order to make possible the sale
of beer and light wines. The "drys"
are credited with the belief that a
content of more than one and one
half per cent, alcohol constitutes an
intoxicating beverage. The contest
over this legislation may prove one
of the interesting fights of the ses
Representative John W. Vlcker
man. sponsor of the resolution to
ratify the amendment says the
amendment will be approved by the \
House but the "wets" claim a lead j
of from five to seven In the House ;
and say thbir only danger lies in the -
action of the nation which has al- ■
ready ratified Prohibition and the i
action last week In New York state •
when all the "dope" was upßet and
"wet" New York developed Into a ;
"dry" New York. The "wets" say i
that this one case may lose them :
tie predictions are naturally in order
and the "drys" naw claim to see a :
landslide developing. They have
Demon Rum on the ropes and the
referee counting the fatal ten. They
also claim that the liquor followers
are gathering in force and that they
are going to force those candidates
that they supported to stand up for
booze to the last drink and say they
will not release the men. They are
ltving In the "wet" present and not
in any condition that may develop
after the coining of the national
drouth. Many thought that the
liquor men, seeing the ghost was up,
would let their men, in close dis
tricts, shift for themselves to bene
fit themselves —but the same con
dition that has helped bring prohi
bition—greed and lack of intelli
gent foresight—is still in the seat
of power in their councils and will
likely have to be struck on the head
with a ratification vote in Pennsyl
vania before the light gets a chance)
Ito break through. All this means
that they care not for the political ,
future of their willing supporters of
years' standing but are going to lead '
them to the political block where :
the voters will show little mercy to ,
men given the light to see but who
would see not. Since the nation has
ratified the amendment and even
New York has taken the hurdle for
prohibition, the Pennsylvania liquor
leaders will present a sorry spec
tacle, even in victory, it they force
a strict "wet" and" "dry" vote to
The old expression that "the
liquor men have brought it upon
themselves" was explained and am
plified to-day by a prominent man
here whose name is omitted for ex
cellent reasons. The utterance he
made and which is reproduced here
is bona fide and exact: "While the
liquor men have many times made
costly mistakes I only lately heard
from a very prominent brewet that
the brewers themselves are respon
sible for some of the states that rati
fied prohibition. They, of course,
did not do it willingly at the start,
but once whisky was put on the
sliding board the distillers got into
the game in earnest. It all started
some Hinre ago when the brewers,
seeing breakers ahead, started their
advertising campaign for beer and
light wines. Everything else was
Ito be prohibitedall drinks of high
power and quick action. This had
gone on for a time when an active
distiller, I mean a man active In
public life as well as business, Berved
notice on a brewers' committee that
if the propoganda of the brewers
knocked out wisky and other dis
tilled spirits, that the distillers
would strike back and with force.
Then came the ban on further dis
tillation of spirits. That left the
distillers with a big stock on hand.
Naturally that Increased the value
of what they had. They speculated
in , whisky certificates and most of
them cleaned up a big sum. How
ever, their resentment mounted with
their winnings. They did not lift
a finger, speaking generally, to help
the beer men or the Californlans
who fought for the native wines.
You know the result. That result,
I am In a position to know from
Information received front an excel
lent source, was helped by the dls
square with the brewers. In some
tillers In their angry effort to get
states where the distillers could
have been potent factors in the elec
tion of legislators, they were Inac
tive. It is ail over now but this is
one small part of the story as to
how it was eventually ratified."
There have been stories that the
liquor men would quit at the last
minute and not force their men to
go on record but the talk now is
that every wet man will go to the bat
and do his best to-morrow.

through alleys to his home and threw
him into his father's chlckencoop,
while they wrote th Sir demand for
money on the side of the house. Dur
ing that time young Rhodes says he
recovered consciousness and extri
cated himself from the ropes which
tied his hands. He started to make
his way toward the house when the
two men turned upon him and
knocked him unconscious again with
their sandbag.
It is thought by Rhodes' father
that some one roused in the house
caused the two men to flee in their
machine. Rhodes declares he thinks
he recognized one of the assailants

authorities are investigating.
