APPLE JUICE BECOMES
New York, Nov. 26. Prohibition
has bred a national thirst for cider,
'- so irresistible that apple juice
promises to become the great Amer
ican drink, according to Dr. Eugene
H. Porter, state commissioner of
food and markets.
But, says Dr. Porter, the supply is
small. The present crop f cider
apples is about one-third" that of
former years "and the big dealers
x are scrambling to get enough to sup
ply their customers."
"Much has been written and said
of hard cider," he sayl, "but in most
cases it has been soft cider wearing
a wolf's toelt. Hard cider with a
natural 'kick' is difficult to make,
and more dimcult to keep.

, tion in yeast-treated cider is unwise
as its effects on the drinker are far

wage increase for miners anH the
stipulation that there should be no
increase in the price paid by the
public, was laid before miners and
operators tonight by Fuel Adminis
John L. Lewis, acting president of
the United Mine Workers of Amer

would not accept.
After a three-hour conference at
which representatives of the miners
openly declared the new scale was
"insulting" and sharply questioned
Dr. Garfield, he subscale committee
composed of miners and operators
met to consider the settlement plan
and quickly adjourned.- Another
meeting'wilt be held tomorrow.
Operators Will Negotiate.
The miners' refusal to accept,
while not announced to Dr. Garfield,
was taken by the operator? to be
definite. Thomas T. Brewster, chair
man of the operators' association,
declared, the Garfield 14 per cent
statement formally eliminated Secre

While the subscale committee will
give consideration to the proposi

both sides, will remain here to re
ceive any plan of settlement that
might be agreed upbn.
William Green, secretary of the
United Mine Workers, declared to
morrow would see the end pi all ne
gotiations, as "the operators are op
posed to granting any increase and
the miners cannot proceed on the
figures given by Dr. Garfield." Many
of the miners said they agreed with

Kansas miners, who announced that
it we are unable to receive a wage
here that will guarantee us a decent

go home and tight tor a while.

In Explaining his statement at the
joint conference Dr. Garfield said
that in computing the wage advance
he had accepted Secretary Wilson's
estimate of 79 per cent increase in
the cost of living since 1913, which
was the highest estimate made by
Dr. Garfield declared that miners
today were receiving higher wages
without the 14 per cent increase than
any other class of workers in the
At the opening of the meeting Dr.
Garfield read his statement care
fully while both sides gave him the

' LIQUOR ON SALE
Federal Judge Declares War
time Prohibition Unconstitu
tional, Then Bars Open.
New Orleans, Nov. 26. Whisky,
beer and wines were sold openly
over the counter in New Orleans
Wednesday nightN after Federal
Judge Foster had declared wartime
Less than an hour after Judge
Foster had. enjoined federal author
ities from interfering with the sale
of bonded whiskies in compliance
with the petition of the Herman
Leiser Liquor company, barrooms
were serving liquor in steadily varied
assortments. Mixed drinks were un
obtainable during the day because of
the rush for "straight liquor."
Later, however, it will 'be possible
to obtain practically all of the widely
known drinks for many years pe
culiar to New Orleans. French res
taurants served claret with dinners.
- Judge Foster, in granting the in
junction, ruled that the war came to
an official end when congress ad
journed recently without rejecting
thepeace treaty with Germany. He
maintained that . when President,
Wilson vetoed the Volstea'U war
time prohibition enforcement bill
October 28 the 'president declared
the army and navy forces demobi
lized. Judge Foster- formerly held that
2.75 per cent beer was non-intoxicating.
Above the enthusiasm of liquor
dealers, however, loomed the warn
ing of , the United States district at-,
torr.ey and the internal revenue col
lector that a strict 'record was be
ing kept of liquor selling and that
should the supreme court of 'the
United States declare the wartime
prohibition act constitutional, prose
cutions, would be instituted.
District Attorney Mootiey, upon
learning of Teports that saloon keep
ers had agreed to make a fiat charge
of 50 .cents per drink for whisky,
announced that should they combine
to charge high prices for drinks
they would be prosecuted for profi-'

Sir: You will no doubt realize

invoked in the demand for the imme
diate liberation of Mr. Jenkins, who
as you know, is at present under the
jurisdiction of a judge of the city of

The Mexican government cannot
see what the foundation for such

try that makes it. " v
Imperfect Understanding. v . -1
The terms of a note which I anf
answering are attributed to my gov
eminent to an imperfect understand!
ing of our penal laws. The imprison
ment is neither unjust -or arbitrary!
as your note states, since Mr. Jen

story statements regarding the kid
naping of which lie was a victim
The judge hag had ample foundation
to suppose that he was guilty of thi?
crime of falsifying judicial declara,

Nevertheless this imprisonment
does not of itself signify that Mfc
Jenkins is guilty, because such a facf
can only be established by a dehtw
