BOURBONS PLOT TO
j DROPFREE LIST
With Visions of Bi Deficit
Demos Plan to Put Tariff On
j About Everything.

JUST MUST SAISE MONEY
Washington, Jan.1 3. The problem
of railing additional revenue for the
government to avoid the threatened
deficit at the end of the next fiscal
year kaa assumed such proportions
' that administration leaders in con
press are reviewing the enti e free list
to consider the advisability of placing
tariff iduties on other . commodities
than toffee, rubber and wool, and in
creasing the present tariff on sugar.
Revenues to be derived from these
four sources will fall far below the
sum needed, unless there is a radical
revision upward of the tariff duties
originally proposed on them. Esti
mates; placed before the ways and
means committee by Treasury de
partment experts are said to show
that under a maximum tariff of 5 per
cent, 'these four commodities would
yield not more than $50,000,000 an
nually and probably not more than
fijge Sum Must Be Raised.
Secretary McAdoo estimated 'that
approximately $195,000,000 will have
' to be raised by taxation in addition to
sums-to be dewed from proposed
bond issues. ; W . ;:' '

chief of the Brotherhood of Railroad
Trainmen, issued a statement here to
day charging that the railroads of the
country are permitting delays to
trains and overtime which would not
ordinarly be permitted in order to
prove the enormous expense that
would follow obedience to the Adam
son law. The statement asked wheth
er if the supreme court declares the
law either constitutional or invalid

await the eight-hour day, - ' '
Mr. Lee denied a report published
today that a sealed statement putting
the Adamson law situation up to the
men had been sent out by the chiefs
of the four brotherhoods. '' "'
It was learned from an authorita
tive source that the general chairman
of the four brotherhoods will hold a
meeting in Chicago January 11 to
consider the situation.

For Washing Hair
If you want to keen your hair in

wasn it witrt. ,
Most soaps and prepared shamooos
contain too much alkali. This dries the
scalp, makes the hair brittle, and is
very harmful, just plain mulsified co

greaseless), is much better than the
most expensive soap or anything else
you can use for shampooing, as this
can't oossiblv injure the hair.

and rub it in. One or two teaspoon

LOBECK TO SUBMIT
Second District Congressman
Will Undergo Treatment
for an Abscess.
NOT THOUGHT DANGEROUS
(Worn a Staff Compondnt. )
Washington, Jan. 3. (Special Tele
gram.) Congressman Lobeck will
undergo an operation tomorrow for
an abscess which has been forming
for some time. Mrs. Lobeck, who ar
rived this morning, acquiesced in the
operation, after the attending physi
cian, Dr. Richard Kingsman, had out
lined its necessity.
Mr. Lobeck was removed from his
apartment in the Winston hotel to
the .Homeopathic hospital, where the
operation will be performed. While
the operation is by no means a seri
ous one, still the age of Mr. Lobeck
makes it rather delicate. The con
gressman's physical condition, accord
ing to Dr. Kingsman, is excellent to
bear the shock of the operation.
Urge Passage of Measure
For Investigation of Packers
(Prom a Staff Correnpondenf.)
Washington, Jan. 3. (Special Tele
gram.) Congressman Stephen of
Nebraska, together with Congress
men Doolittle, Borland, Kent and
Garner, called on the president by
appointment today to urge upon his
attention the necessity of passing the
Borland resolution at this short ses
sion, authorizing the investigation of'
packers and the food situation i gen
eral. . .', ' '. .
Mr. Stephens made an extended
speech on this subject last year and
was one of the originators of the
movement,- which has extended over
the whole country. He believes the
high cost of meat is due almost en
tirely to the control of the market by
the four big packers, which has made
cattle feeding so hazardous that there
is a constant decrease in the supply
of meat animals on the' market: Mr.
Stephens is a feeder of cattle.

DRY FORCES SPLIT
ON TERJK OF BILL
Radical Measure Drawn Up by
NEW OEOTJP DRAWS BILL
(Krem a 8tafl Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Jan. S. (Specia f Tele
gram.) Prohibition forces appear to
be unable to agree upon the kind of
bill to bring before the state legis
lature. The committee which pre
pared the one published last Sunday
and fathered by the dry federation,
has been censured, so it is said, be
cause of the radical measure which
they drew up. Another group of drys.
headed by A. G. Wolfenbarger, wili
prepare another bill for the considera
tion of the legislature.
Mr.-Wolfenbarger has selected as
his assistants such men as C. M.
Skiles, Mayor Charles Bryan, John
W. Dryden, I. D. Evans, J. J. Thomas
and other well known attorneys.
These, so it is said, do not like the
radical provisions of the "bone dry"
bill prepared by the dry federation,
especially that which permits drug
stores to handle liquors of any kind
even in infinitismal quantities, believ
ing that no permits should be granted
Work will begin on the second bill
immediately in the hope that it may
be considered before the first bill re
ceives consideration. In fact, unless
the dry federation bill eliminates some'
of its provisions, it may not get very
far, , ,.

JAPAN WILL ARM
Asks United States Regarding
Rules for Passage of Such
Vessels Through Canal.
AFRAID OF THE SUBMARINE
Washington, Jan. 3. Japan, through
the embassy here, notified the State
department today of its intention to
arm its merchant' ships defensively
and requested information whether
any specific rules had been made by
this government for passage of ships
so armed through the Panama canal.
This was the first official informa
tion that Japan intended such action
and was interpretated in some quar
ters as indicative of fear of German
submarine operations on a wider
scale than so far attempted.
Japan has a Urge tonnage passing
through the canal and has suffered
seriously from undersea activities.
While no submarines have appeared
in the Pacific so far British naval ex
perts have said that information in
the hands of the admiralty and the ex
ploit of the U-53 off the New Eng
land coast indicate that it is quite
possible that they will operate there
There are no canal regulations im
posing special restrictions upon ves
sels armed purely for defensive pur
poses as the United States holds that
such armament does not deprive a
ship of its character as a peaceful
