BEER IS BEER RULES
m FEDERAL JUDGE PAGE.
Chicago, July 25. Beer is beer,
and need not be intoxicating, and
so long as it contains as much as
one-half of one per cent alcohol,
its manufacture or sale is in viola
tion of the wartime prohibition act,
Federal Judge Page held Friday.
He overruled the demurrer of the
Stenson Brewing company, setting
forth that the- government's infor
' niation failed to charge that the
company's beer was intoxicating.
The company then entered a plea
of not guilty. '
The government's victory was re
garded as important by -the district
attorney's office in that under Judge
Page's finding, the burden of prov
ing a beverage intoxicating, and in
fact removing the question as to
its intoxicating quality, is lifted from
the government. ,
STORK BEATEN IN
RACE WITH AIRPLANE.
' East Hampton, N. Y., July 25.
The stork is sometimes a swift bird
but he lost by 10 minutes a race
with an airplane.
Mrs. Byron Brooks, who is sum
mering here, is the wife of a naval
architect who was at Mineola when
. he learned by long distance tele
phone that the stork had started on
j a flight toward his home. Hasty
consultation of a time'-table showed
there would be no train for hours.
Brooks telephoned to the Curtiss
Aeroplane and Engine corporation
at Garden City and described the
"This is Victor Vernon, in charge
of flights," came the cheering news
- over the wire. "Richard DePew and
I will help you beat the bird. Come
: on over and let's go."
Brooks paused only to send the
following telegram to his wife be
fore speeding to the waiting air
plane: "Coming by air. Will land in
. -wheat field. Ask Jean to wait.
The Curtiss people received this
message just two hours after Brooks
had set off to beat the stork:
"Landed on golf links. One hour
and 20 minutes. Baby arrived 10
minutes later. Her name is Jean."

DENVER TO ESTABLISH
MUNICIPAL MARKETS SOON.
Denver, Colo., July 25. Denver
will have a municipal food, meat
and fuel market, and perhaps a
' number of such markets, to cut the
cost of living to consumers, ac
cording to tentative plans an
nounced after a meeting of Mayor
Dewey C. Bailey and his cabinet.
The city administration will begin
an immediate investigation to de
termine feasibility of the, plan.
The first step would be purchase
of several carloads of the canned
foods to be offered at cost by the
War department, it was announced.
Any enterprise in which the city
will engage along this line will be
copied after "Seattle's municipal
fish market plan, it is said.
The municipal market will be
inaugurated within 90 days, unless
the federal government acts to
bring down food prices, members
of the commission said.

Expects Developments Within
Few Days Which Will Clear
Air in Senate and Remove
Opposition to Peace Treaty.
Indications Are That Conver
sations With Tokio Had as
Object Declaration That
Would Satisfy China.
Washington, July 25. Diplomatic
discussions with Japan over the
Shantung provision in the peace
treaty have reached a stage where
President Wilson is represented as
very "hopeful of developments with
in a few days that will clear the air
and remove much of the opposition
to the provision in the senate.
This interpretation of the presi
dent's expectations was expressed
by Senator Spencer, republican,
Missouri, after a long talk with Mr.
Wilson Friday about the treaty. The
senator declined to go into details
a. tn ihf rxact steos beintr taken.
and both the White House and the
State departmtnt were silent on the
subject. Thre were indications, how-
irr that thf rnn vprsatinns with
Japan, though quite informal in
"character, had as their object such
a declaration from Tokio as would
satisfy China and result in her ac
ceptance of the treaty.
Senator Spencer also discussed at
Unirih urith fhp nresident the sub
ject of reservations in the senate
raitfication of the treaty, taking with
him to the White ttouse a arau oi
five reservations drawn up and sub
mitted to the president, it is under
stood, at the suggestion of Chair
man Lodge ,of the foreign rela
tions committee. The draft also is
said to have been shown to other
republicans of carving shades of
opinion, but Mr. Spencer made it
clear in presenting them that he
alone stood sponsor for their phrase
ology. The reservations covered the
Monroe doctrine, withdrawal from
Shantung, national determination of
democratic issues and independ
ence of action under Article 10. Mr.
Spencer told the president that
without some such qualifications
the treaty never could be ratified,
while if they were included ratifica
tion would come quickly. He said
Mr. Wilson promised to give the
proposed reservations his earnest
consideration and conveyed the im
pression that he personally was not
opposed to such a course except
for the complications that might
resulc should the treaty be returned

Notice also was taken at the
White House during the day of
senate discussion of the defensive
treaty with France, which Senator
Lodge and others have charged the
president is withholding from the
senate in direct violation of the
treaty's own terms. Without any
explanation. White House officials
made it clear that Mr. Wilson has
no intention of submitting the
Franco-American agreement for
senate ratification until considera
tion of the treaty with Germany is
well mder way.

. IN MILWAUKEE
Head of Big Packing Concern
Succumbs to Apoplectic
Milwaukee, July 25. Patrick Cud
ahy, president of Cudahy Brothers
company, packers of Cudahy, Wis.,
died suddenly this afternoon from
an apoplectic stroke.

United States in 1849. The family
settled in Milwaukee. At 14 Michael

Male Companions of "Laugh

Police believe they have captured
the to male companions of the
"Laughing Woman" bandit.
They were arrested last night and
gave the names of James Blacker
and James Davis.
The "Laughing Woman" bandit
took part in "sticking up" motorists
stopped by motor or tire troubles.
Guns and masks were found in
Blacker's and Davis' pockets. They
were arested at a down-town hotel.
The woman bandit first came to
police notice when Al Vody, a tran
sient guest at the Paxton hotel, was
accosted by two men and a woman
who alighted from a big touring car.
Vody was repairing a tire near the
Municipal beach. Vody and his
companion, I. Nagle, yielded $32 to
the gentle feminine touch. Shebade
the two men a laughing farewell as
the big car got under way.
J. H. White, 1727 Leavenworth
street, was robbed under similar con
ditions. In company with J. H.
Hauser, he was fixing a punctured
tire near Sixth and Pierce streets.
White gave up $90. . Hauser was
robbed of $3. And the bandit
woman laughed again.
Police have little hope of arresting
her, due to the meager descriptions
given by her victims.

"DOES HE LOVE IRELAND
OR LLOYD GEOpGE LESS?"
Northcliffe Adopts Attitude of
Withholding Hand Until Pre
mier Admits Despair Before
Springing His Panacea.
BY ROBERT WELLES RITCHIE.
(UntTerosl Service' Staff Correspondent.)
London, July 25. (Special Cable
Dispatch.) Does Northcliffe love
Ireland, or does he love Lloyd
That is the question buzzing in
the minds of political wiseacres in
London following the publisher's
new scheme for a settlement of the
Irish problem occupying four solid
columns in his leading newspaper,
"He always has 'em guessing," as
one shrewd observer put it.
So it is with this latest outflow
from the source of wisdom which
characteristically propounded last
December a solution of world prob
lems before the peace congress had
assembled, and which now leaps into
the arena with a complete outfit to
"solve" a problem manv hundred
Will Spring Panacea.
Northcliffe adopts the attitude of
patiently but vainly withholding his
hand until Premier Lloyd George
admittedJn the commons his despair
of any solution, and of then, with
due humility, springing upon a star
tled world a panacea "which we do
not expect will secure the immediate
approval of either Ulster or the
Unionists or the extreme Nationalists."
First, as to Northcliffe s motives.
If his break with the premier is gen
uine Lloyd-George's -disappointing
speech in the commons in which he
professed that the government had
no policy toward Ireland except a
policy of despair, left a large vul
nerable point in the premier's ar
mor. Neither Will Approve Plan.
Pre-supposing that Northcliffe is
making a sincere effort to point out
a plan of conciliation with Ireland,
the most cogent thing he says is
that neither the extreme unionists
nor the Sinn Feiners will approve
("immediately" or at any other
time) of his plan.
Add to this his idea of an Irish
parliament in which each of the two
states of the "Irish federation" has
equal representation and it becomes
more apparent that the Sinn Feiners
will have to reverse their whole
program of representation accord
ing to population to agree to his
Moreover, the Sinn Feiners al
ready have repudiated the principle of
their representatives sitting in the
British parliament which North
cliffe urges, this being tantamount
to recognition of British sover
eignty. From the Unionist side lurk equal
ly insurmountable difficulties. North
cliffe's proposal presupposes a re
laxation of British rule to the dimin
ishing point, notably the reduction
of the office of lord lieutenant to a
nominal status "shorn of political
character." He also relegates to the
Irish parlament the power to impose
and collect direct taxation-as well as
the fixing and collection of excise
and customs duties. This would fur
ther weaken British power in Ire
land. Senate to Consider

Says He Never Expressed
Opinion in Alleged
Not only the women of Omaha,
who do things, are protesting
against a beauty contest in this
day of epoch-makig events, but
Laurie Wallace, artist and writer,
accuses the "beauty editor" of the
paper of publishing it of having a
vivid imagination, tendencies to
stray from the truth and absolutely
no regard for facts.
Mr. Wallace, for the third time,
has been quoted as passing judg
ment on the three women, whose
pictures have been published in the
beauty contest, and he emphatically
" I never exp-esed my opinion of
Mrs. Patterson's beauty. I never
said a word about her sister, Miss
Phyllis Waterman. I have not ut
tered a sound with regard to beauty,
charm or loveliness of Miss Marian
Walker. I was amazed that three
times in succession the promoter
of the . alleged beauty contest
should take such liberties putting
words into my mouth which 1
never have uttered."
When questioned as to his per
sonal opinion, Mr. Walace would
not commit himself one way or
the other in regard to the merits of
the three contestants for the
beauty prize. He laughed at the
headline stating that Miss Weller
had blue eyes and light hair.
"Everyone who knows Miss Wel
ler," he said, "l?nows that her eyes
are so large and brown that no
