Yesterday tho U. S. senate approved
legislation authorizing the sale of nil
alien property In the United Stated.
This property, it is said, will amount
to (billions of dollars. This will per
manently uproot Gorman commercial
influence In this country, and is one of
tho worst blows that could have been
struck at Germany. The president is
auithorliied to acquire title to tho Ger

Hoboken, N. J. The money received
from the sale of this vast property
Interests of the Germans will be added
to the urgent deficiency appropriation
Enemy property 'within tho mean
ing of tho law is property owned in an
encmjN country and logical assurances
have been given that there is no in
tention to interfere with the property
or money of Germans or Austrlans
living in this country. The purposo is
to sever forevor the hold of Germans
in Germany upon vast commercial and
industrial enterprises in the United

that Harshdeld has defied arrest, and
