"An attempt was made to get an
agreement to oppose the Capper bill.
which repealed the guarantee clause
of the Commins-Esch bill and re
established the powers of the states
in intrastate matters," he said. "The
farm representatives objected to this,
standing firm for the repeal of all
guaranteed returns and the Integrity
of state commissions.
"Matters pertaining to reduced la
bor and other operating costs' were
di.--cu.fsed as well as the railway la

an agreement was made. This con
ference grew out of the former con
ference held at New York. Septem

expense of $500.

DAUGHERTY ASK HELP
IN LAW ENFORCEMENT
Urges State Action in Prohibition
and Food an Fuel Supply Acts
Washington. Dec. 27. Co-operation
of state law enforcement officials
with those of the federal government
was asked by Attorney General
Daugherty in letters sent late today
to the attorney generals of the states.
Such co-operation, it was maintain
ed, would result in better and more
uniform enforcement of all statutes.
Enforcement of the prohibition
and the food and fuel supply laws
were particularly referred to, Mr.
Daugherty explained In announcing
dispatch of the letters. There was no
disposition by the federal government
to evade responsibility, he added, but
there was a feeling that the states
should make every effort to enforce
their laws which might be a dupli
cation of federal statutes.
May Aim at Retailers
The letters were also accepted in
some quarters as a step in connec
tion with the move recently an
nounced of investigating retailers.
Mr. Daugherty suggested to the
state attorney generals that they call
conferences of county prosecutors
and, if possible, bring about "a co
herent working agreement" between
them and federal officials. Such meet
ings, he added, ought to be held early
next year, so that tlie basis of un
derstanding ' could be employed to
effect economies in expenditures as
well as serve the real purpose of ac
complishing more through law en
forcement. The co-ordination sought, Mr.
Daugherty said, ought to be of real
help to municipal authorities, cham
bers of commerce and others inter
ested in reaching "iolations for ex
tortion in the prices now maintain
ed." Referring to the co-operation
which he asked, Mr. Daugherty said:
"This will make for a better un
derstanding among the people. It
will also afford an opportunity for
the several states, without duplica
tion with the federal government, to
enforce laws which should be en
forced by state authorities and leave
for the federal government such du
ties as devolve upon it.
"The two principal offenses which
I have in mind are those against the
liquor and the food and fuel laws.
There is no disposition on the part
of the federal government to evade
any responsibility in respect to its
duties, but the states, I believe,
should first enforce their laws in Te
gard to the violations, and the fed
eral "government promptly co-oper-tlng
with the states, enforce the
laws which should be enforced by it."
He added that he was desirous of
bringing about a "complete and ef
fective working system," among all
law enforcement authorities, saying
that only by such an arrangement
could a uniformity of proceedings be
established and a similarity of fines
and sentences be worked out.
