Columbus, Ohio, May 14. A
statement issued today from head
quarters of the National Anti-Salon
league at Westerville, in an-
. swer to many inquiries as to what
the league will do in view of statu-
v tory and legislational prohibition
becoming effective soon, asserts that
first and foremost, it expects to
continue its work to the extent that
it shall be effected throughout the
nation. ' V:, ... f'
: There will be Unremitting and re
lentless war on the bootlegger, the
"blind pig" keeper, the moonshiner,
and the blockade runner, but the de
cent, reputable citizen need not fear
that his wife's bedroom will be in
vaded by an over-zealous sleuth !
- searching for a possible cache in
her clothes closet, says the state
In short, it is pointed out, all that
has been sought or accomplished
is prohibition of the manufacture,
sale, transportation, importation
and exportation ot the oeverage
liquor traffic, and now the thing de-
' Sired is absolute enforcement of that
prohibition. ,
The league does not desire to in
terfere in the affairs of other na
tions it says, but to lend its aid to
similar organizations " in foreign
countries in their fights against tne.
liquor tramc.

Minneapolis, May 14. Minne
apolis millers declared tonight that
although the United States grain
corporation may provide the mills
with less expensive wheat from Can
ada they did not believe it would
be possible to reduce flour prices
enough to make decreased bread
prices possible.
Frank L. Carey, grain corpora
tion agent for the northwest, an
nounced that the price of Canadian-
wheat purchased in Canada and re
sold to the mUers would be about
$2.40 a bushel. This is about 40
cents less thanthe price the millers
have been paying recently.
Millers declare that if the -grain
corporation purchases only a small
quantity of wheat from Canada, as
announced, the supply will, not be
sufficiently large to bring about a
reduction in flour prices.

the Third infantry, Iowa National
guard, left the state in September,
1917, it numbered 3,506 Iowans.
When it returned to home soil Wed
nesday, it included less than 1,000

not mean that the others were killed
in action, as many were invalided
home and not a few transferred
through : promotions. The official
figures given out by the War de
partment show the regiment lost
673 men' as follows: Killed in
action, 437; died of wounds, 191;
missing i naction. 40; prisoners, 5.
The regiment saw its first action
with the enemy at Badonvillers in

gagement that Capt. Harrison Mc

to Place Left Vacant by Resignation; Deny Action
Was Due to Exposures Made of Situation in Deten
tion Home. v ;
' Police Commissioner Ringer has been in correspondence
with Lt. Col. F. A. Edwards in connection with the prospec
tive vacancy in the position of health commissioner, on account-
of the resignation of Dr. E. T. Manning.
Utner jnen in various cities are being considered
The only comment Mr. Ringer
will offer on the subject is that no
selection has been made and that
he has nothing to lay.
"When I was in Washington, O.
C, two weeks ago," said Mayor
Smith, "I met Lieutenant Colonel
Edwards, but I did norknow ,untl
he told me that he, had been con
sidered for the Omaha health com
missionership. I understand from
Mr. Ringer that Dr. Edwards has
had experience in health department-
work in Philadelphia and
Pittsburgh and that he has been
overseas. I have been told that lie
has been connected with the medical
branch of the army. I do not know
that he will be-named to succeed
Dr. Manning." ;
No Friction with Ringer.
The story of Dr. Manning's in
tended resignation was printed ex
clusively in The Bee yesterday
- "Well, I guess Iam without a
health commissioner," was the first
comment of the ' police commis
sioner after he had read the resig
nation. "I want to state positively
that' there has been no friction be
tween myself and Dr. Manning. I
regret -to see him go. . Matters per-,
taining to the City Detention home
have nothing to do with the resig
nation. ; I am ' convinced ' that the
doctor wants to take up his private
practice." . ' :.
Dr. Manning made this statement:

for several weeks. In fact we have j
Omaha Woman Cables Direct

Sergt. S'amuel Saltzman is on his
way to Omaha from France because
his wife, Mrs. Dorette Saltzman,
214 South Forty-first street, cabled
General Pershing and secured his
release from duty in France.
Mrs. Saltzman wanted her hus
band home, the war being over, and
so' she decided to cable right to
General Pershing and not bother
with any colonels or majors or such
like. She sent the first message
March 8 and the answer came back
that her husband could not be
spared. v
But this wasn't from Pershing.
So she cabled again and has now
received a message that the sergeant
is on his way home.
He went to France last Septem
ber and was with the quartermas
ter's division at Nazaire. France.
When he4 went to the war Mrs.

nection with investigation into
charges that protection was granted

monthly. - v
David Cockrill, known locally as
"king of the gamblers," was also
arrested. Bonds were fixed in all
"cases at $5,000 each.
The charges that resulted in the

by former Chief of Police Walter J.
Peterson, now captain of inspectors,
who asserted that $10,000 monthly

OMAHA, THURSDAY, MAT 15, 1919. ;
been considering several men for the
place and it was" our plan not to
make any announcement until my
successor should have been selected.
As for myself I will state that I
am resigning for personal reasons. I
wish to resume my practice. I have
made a financial sacrifice during the
year that I have been commissioner.
I have brought the affairs of the
office to a condition where a big
man may take hold and carry on
the "work. Commissioner Ringer
and I have been in accord and have
had no personal differences. .We
may have disagreed on minor mat
ters, but as a general proposition
there have been harmony and co
operation." A city hall man who keeps in close
touch with health department afairs
stated on Tuesday afternoon that he
had been told by Dr. Manning that
the doctor was chafing under certain
matters which did not rest on a
physician's ethical nature. While Mr.
Ringer and Dr. Manning' insist that
the City Detention home situation
has nothing to do with the resigna
tion, it is nevertheless known that
the health commissioner disliked so
much criticism.
The city hall man referred to as
having been a confidant of Dr. Man
ning stated that the doctor said he
was getting tired of being "ridden"
so much. He further went on to say
that he was satisfied the health com
missioner was referring to the City
Detention home situation which has
been exposed by The Bee. The gen
eral trend of the doctor's conversa

Stock Equalling Normal Out
put of packers for Two
Years Not Put on Market
.to Maintain Prices.
Washington, May 14. Secretary
Baker denied today that there was
relation between any attempt to
support the prices of meat supplied
in this country and the tentative
arrangement reached by representa
tives ot the War department and the
packing industry for the disposal
abroad of 250,000,000 pounds of
canned meats. The department an
nounced a few days ago that this
stock, amounting to the normal out
put of American packing companies
tor two years; woulorbe placed on
the European markets.
"There has been misapprehension
with regard to the policy of the
department in disposing ' of meat
supplies.' 'the secretary dec ared in
an informal statement. The meats
in question are specially prepared
products in special containers, and
of a kind never sold commercially
in the United States roast beef and
especially salted pork which are
not articles of ordinary commercial
trade here. The cans are not even
labeled. The question of disposing
