Sir John Griffith Declares Po
litical Trickery Should
Be Banished
Dublin. Dec. 16.—Sir John Grif
fith, Irikh engineer, who recently re
.Clred from the service of the Dublin
Jort and Docks Board, In an ad
dress delivered in Dublin said that
Jf religious Intolerance and political
iftrlckery could be banished from Ire
land and the land handed over to
■the control of engineers there would
be prospects of industrial progress
And contentment.
The lessons of the war for Ire
■ land he considered to being isolation,
• the Importance of her strategical po
sition, and the deficiency of naval
j bases on her western coast. Another
• naval base should be formed in G&l
---way Bay and a thoroughly equipped
harbor built there. This harbor
would be available as a deep-sea
fishing station and as a terminal
i port for a high-speed passenger and
•mail service between America and
The only remedy for Industrial un
rest throughout the world, he be
lieved, to be the adoption of some
system of co-operation, copartner
ship or profit sharing.
Referring to the possibilities of
Irish peat, he pointed out that if
> otr-dried peat were used to replace
coal the Irish deposits would be
sufficient to retisfy the fuel and
power requirements of the country
' for 306 years.
Recounting the work of Irish en
pincers he said that Ireland has the
| largest telescope, the largest ships,
the largest sluices, the largest con--
i crete blocks for harbor work, the
most striking improvement of a
'harbor entrance (Dublin) by arti
r ficial scour and that in its industrial
' factories Ireland can claim the larg
' est brewery, the largest spinning and
i "weaving works and the largest rope
• works.

Detective Search
American Ships in
Ports of Ireland
Dublin, Dec. 10,—'The Dublin
papers report that the American
Lphips Fontana and Franconia, and
other American ships have been
t-se.arched by detectives. The quarters
icf the crew were visited, and sea
men questioned with a view to as
certaining whether they had any
rms or ammunition. In no case
-were any arms found.
Many Spanish Farmers
Will Come to America
Madrid, Dec. 16.—Barge numbers
of agricultural workers from all
parts of Spain are awaiting at Fer
'Tol and other ports for transporta
tion to America, both North and
Bouth. This is one of the results oft
• the new social conditions brought
About in Spain by the war, and in
creased wages.
For years the Spanish farmer had
ripaid his help about three pesetas
<normally 60 cents) daily during the
Ginrvest. As this was Just about suf
cflcient for the employe to subsist
pon t tho farmer also allowed his
*nen and women sufficient to buy
.food during the winter. This
amount was decided by the farmer
Jiimself and varied in proportion to
<*he generosity of the giver.
East year the farm hands, like
Almost every other class of labor in
Spain, organized a union, with the
result that wages during the harvest
Increased from the century-old three
pesetas daily to from 15 to 25 pese
tas daily. Therefore, when the win
ter came on and there was no work,
the farmer, instead of following tho
!d convention of handing out doles
to his employes, told them as they
sivere now earning good wages they
should save sufficient to keep them
selves during the winter.
Those who had saved, or at least
A proportion of them, decided to
move to some country where money
ould be earned the year round.
Mrs. Blake Continues to
Deny She Killed Son
Atlantic Wty, N. J., Dec. 16. —
Confined to the city hospital under
police guard where she is slowly
recovering from the effects of a
habit forming drug, according to!
attending physicians, Mrs. James M. I
Blake, charged with the murder of !
Jjer five-year-old mute son, James
"Bunny" Blake, still sobbingly de-
Pies that she tossed the curly-headed
boy into the ocean.
According to Dr. L. R. Souder,
Atlantic county physician, Mrs.'
JBlake is getting slowly away from J
the kidnaping story she has been
tolling since the child disappeared.
"Bhe started to recite the story of
the kidnaping," said Dr. Souder,
# *but I told her she was not telling
the truth, and asking her how she
accounted for her handbag being
found on tho Ventnor pier, she re
plied that the child usually carried
the bag. As she approached the
boardwalk from Cambridge avenue,
she said, the child ran ahead of her.
The boy headed for the boardwalk,
6he added, and must have gotten on
the Ventnor pier. I
