the Corner ranch here on the Amer

strengthened today when- Andrew
Peterson's shepherd dog crawled into

Law Observance Needed.
Miss Bronson told the committee
that it was not so much the making
of laws that was wanted as it was the
observance of those already made.
"You can make laws and provide

The amendment was submitted by.
Senator Jones of 'Washington 'after
the senate by a two-thirds vote had
suspended the rules to make it admis
sible in an appropriation bill. It car
ries with it a drastic clause added by
Senator Reed, making it a crime pun
ishable by $1,000 fine or from six
months' to two year' imprisonment
for any person to order, purchase or
cause liquor to be transported into
dry states for beverage purposes, ex
cepting, however, for scientific, med

poses. This provision is designed to
make "bone dry" stales that prohibit
the manufacture oi intoxicating

proposed, made the maximum penalty
five years' imprisonment. Senator
Reed so ridiculed this that Senator
Jones changed it.
