'8uspicious Storage” of Booze-'VoV
•re May Rcfrent Pra-Primary
Ad vie*—Can’t Restrict Spe
BY DENNIS O’LEARY.
Police officers in Des Moines raid
ed the basement of John Hamery,
special prohibition officer connected
with the county sheriffs office, and
found two stills and a considerable
quantity of booze. Mr. Hamery
immediately raised the wail that hs
had been “framed” by forces un
friendly to his operations. The bas
ic weakness in his plea is that he
admits putting these contraband
supplies in his basement, claiming
that such storage was only a tem
porary arrangement until he could
transfer the captured supplier to
the sheriffs office.
It is difficult to conceive or any
situation calling for such Intermedi
ate storage by an officer in the dis
charge of hla duties. In this par
ticular case, it appears, Mr. Ham
ery had not even reported the
neizures. Whatever the eventual
outcome of the case may be, the
suspicion will hold that he had a
notion of diverting tho booze and
still* to his own private ownership.
No doubt there was a phase of
‘‘framing” in the raid which exposed
the inventory of the Hamery base
ment. Somebody knew of the cache
and promoted the ‘‘John Doe” raid
for purposes other than to uphold
the sanctity of law. But "framing”
of that particular kind is not pos- ,
sible against officials who keep their
official and private operations fre*
from questionable situations.
Those in the field to promote re
spect for federal and state prohibi
tory laws cannot view themselves as
privileged characters. They must be,
like Caesar'* wife, above suspicion.
Prohibition agents who divert seized
liquors to their own use, or for
distribution among their close
friends, not only help to create dis
respect for the prohibitory laws but
are bad Influences in the general
problem of creating and maintain
ing respect for law.
An Offensive Theory.
If the Iowa republican "leaders”
go ahead with the pre-primary con
vention next February, as now in
dicated, the move is likely to de
velop into a phase of insurgency that
lias not been equalled since the hey
day of the Cummins revolt in the
state. The proposed proceeding ia
so clearly an expression of lack of
confidence in citizenship intelligence,
and so clearly an attempt to intrude
on the functions of the state’s legal
primary system, that the "leaders’
can’t get any thing out of it In the
long run except a large measure of
discredit for the self-asserted guardi
anship. Brookhart probably will
express his appreciation for the
Had the early state convention in
Iowa been proposed merely to se
lect delegates to the national con
vention, the shift in date would not
have attracted much attention or
discussion. So long as the custom
prevails of letting a few of the poli
ticians get together to select na
tional convention delegates, it
does not matter very much whether
the meeting is held in February or
a little later. But the state con
vention last year, in declaring for
the pre-primary state convention
