State Bar Votes
Down Resolution
To Incorporate
Proposed Move Denounced as
"Tyranny" and "Freak
Legislation in Hot
Lincoln, Neb., Dec 28. (Special
Telegram.) After a warm discussion
for more than two hours the State
Bar association refused this after
noon to adopt a resolution to in
corporate by a vote of 54 t J2. This
is the fourth time the association has
defeated the move.
Oppos:tion to the resolution was
vigorously made by Judge W. V.'

Judge Paul Jessen of Otoe county.

C. E. Abbott of r-remont said that
incorporation would elevate the
profe?si"n," while John H. Dryden
of Kearney said that incorporation
of the bar associat'on would "lend
dignity to the orofession."
Chairman J. H. Broady of Lincoln,
of the committee which drafted the
resolution, said that the committee
was now through with the matter.
Urge Changes in Laws.
Members of the state bar associ
ation in attendance at the antyial
gathering here went on record as fa-
voranie to me ncwconsuiuiion, dui
expressed the opinion that the leg
islature should - make changes or
addit;ons as it has a right to do un
der the new document.
Belief was expressed' that a law
should be enacted making it the duty I
of every district judge as wen as
supreme judge to report' in writing ,
to the legislative reference bureau ,
all defects in existing laws which ( out of 650 embryonic policemen forp jhe smouldering recentment to

ntction therewith recommend 6uch
changes as in his mind would make
the laW more operative.
. Belief also was exoressed that the
supreme court should prepare and
promulgate rules of practice and
procedure for all the courts of the
state and prepare for the use of the
legislature such changes as it deems
should be made in the interests of
better laws.
A resolution was adopted asking
the legislature to amend Section 875
of the revised statutes of 1913 in
creasing punishment for persons, ob
structing authorities and refusing to
disperse in cases of riot after a proc
lamation is made, or in case rioters
commit any .unlawful act.

that the. universal use of the auto

In Booze Raid
Two Bob Sleds Used by Offi
cers to Take Care of Con-
fiscated Liquor Taken by
Hurley, Wis., Dec. 28. About 70
persons were arrested, 27 , saloons
searched, and two bob-sled loads of
liquor seized in a raid by federal
prohibition enforcement agents here
today, according to a statement b
Joseph. Callahan, in charge of th
agents, who came here from Chicag
unexpectedly. .
The federal agents, with their pris
oners and seized liquor, planned ti
go to Ashland, Wis., to arraign the
prisoners before a United Mates
commissioner on charges of violat-
ing the federal prohibition laws, Mr.
i Callahan said.

More arrests were expected this

sales in wet goods, showed its .effect
today. Many of those arrested were
lumberjacks and others almost par

Moonshine, according to observers
who pretended to know, constituted
the principal "wet" haul although
there was a considerable quantity of
the kind that bore brands formerly
familiar sights in every saloon win

Law Defying Community.
The whole district In this part of
the north woods has been regarded
by dry officials as a law-defying
community. Reports that dance

bootleg joints flourished openly

obtainable, from moonshine whisky
to Italian wine have been numer

Armed Agents on Way.
Chicago, Dec, 28. Forty-eight
armed prohibition agents headed by
Joseph Callahan, chief of staff to
Major Dalrymple in his Iron River,
Mich., liquor raid last spring, were
en route to Hurley, Wis, this
morning, to clear the town of al
leged bootleggers. The party car
ried 38 warrants, with instructions
to arrest every man named, by
force, if necessary.
'The town of Hurley is alleged W
be one of the "wide open" spots in
the north woods. It is a logging
camp and said to be the seat of ex
tensive moonshining operations.
Rum Runner Killed. ,
It was near Hurley that John
Cbiapusio, an alleged liquor runner,
was killed last fall in an encounter
with Leo J' Grove, prohibition agent
in upper Michigan, whom Wisconsin
authorities now are seeking to extra-
dire for trial. Grove made the com-,

London Papers
Are Alarmed At
U.S. Naval Policy
Leading Journals Propose
Powers Mutually Agree to
Curtail Naval Armament
' Expense.-
London,' Dec. 28. Calls for
United States. Great Britain and
Japan to curtail naval expense by
mutual agreement were featured by
a number of London newspapers
this morning. In1 following this
course the journals give expression
to the anxiety " which has prevailed
here -since the receipt of reports of
the new American naval program,
an anxiety which may be traced to
the assumption that if the United
States builds a big navy, Great Brit
ain must do likewise.
The Morning Post laments that
American politicians have chosen a
moment when the war-time fellow
ship of the American and British
navies and the "chivalrous courtesy
of American seamen" have united
the naval services of the two na
tions, "to declare, in effect, that the
British navy is a potential raenace
to America."
Tlje Post contends that "the con
clusion of a working arrangement
between the United States and Great
Britain would do more to establish
and maintain the peace of the world
than any other plan conceivable,"
and urges that "the recent utterances
of Senator Bdrah and other Ameri
cans encourage the belief that such
an arrangement is possible."
Another plea for an agreement
between the United States, Japan
and Great Britain is voiced by the
Daily News, which urged that the
interval between the present mo
ment and the inauguration, of Presi-'
dent-elect Harding should be uti
lized by the statesmen of the three
countries to educate the public. ,
The Express ma-ntains that an
agreement between the three powers
would "assure prosperity as well as
Agreement With Japan
Now Regarded Probable
t (Continued from rant One.) ,
no longer is dependent upon foreign
cap'tal for development, and that
the phenomenal growth of the state
in population in the last decade and
the influx of wealthy easterners give
ample assurance that there will be no
dearth of American capital seeking
investment in the development of
California's natural resources.
Meeting Today.
There will be another meeting of
the delegation tomorrow for further'
discussion of the project for an am
plification of the landholding law.
If the propsed concession finds favor
vith the delegation it will address
to Governor Stephens a recommendation-
of amendment of the land
law by the legislature. The atti
tude of Governor Stephens and mem
bers of the legislature is not know
here, but those behind the movement
in California have brought a "tr
ances of the existence of a wide
spread, sentiment favorable to the
comvromise suggested.
Whether the people oi California
would be disposed to continue to
rely upon a gentleman's agreement
for the exclusion of Japanese im
migration is another question. Gov
ernor Stephens regards the existing
gentleman's agreement a failure and
advocates direct exclusion by statute,
the registration of all Japanese now
here lawfully and the imposition upon
every Japanese, of the burden of
proof of his right of residence by
the production of a certificate, as in
the case of the'Thinesc.

Alliance and Scottsbluff Con
tending for Location of In
dustry Directors Face
Two-Fold Problem.
Alliance. Neb., Dec. 28. (Special
Telegram.) Interest is waxing keen
here and in Scotts Bluff as to whBt
will transpire at the first annual
meeting of the directors and stockt
holders of the Alliance Packing Co.;
to be held in Alliance, January 3.
According tojocal menin close
touch with the situation, a two-fold
problem will be faced, namely,
whether the packing company is to
survive at all, and. in case it does,
whether the headquarters will con
tinue at Alliance and a large pack
ing plant be erected here or wheth
er the company will locate at Scotts
Bluff. -
Several weeks ago it was asserted
by some . stockholders that R. E.
Plumb, president of the company,
had been flirting with the Scotts
Bluff Chamber of Commerce rela
tive to transferring the company
there from Alliance. A vigorous
protest was immediately voiced by
the Alliance Chamber of Commerce,
whose secretary was J. W. Guthrie,
a member of the board of directors
of the packing company, and a mer
ry war has been on between the two
towns over the proposition. 1
Favor Dissolving Company.
It is reported that a number of
ttie larger stockholders favor dis
solving the company altogether and
returning to the stockholders 821-2
per cent of the stock subscribed.
Another group of stockholders are
said to look with disfavor upon this
proposed action and to be exerting
their influence toward keeping the
company alive and building a plant
at Alliance, according to the ordinal
plans. Approximately 5200,000
worth of stock has been sold and
the promotion of the project was
progressing satisfactorily when the
money stringency tied up further ef
forts, It was reported.
Stockholders Have "Cold Feet
Some of the-stockholders are said
to have got "cold feet" since that
time, while others are sitting tight
and are apparently determined to
push the project if it can be legiti
mately done. It Is understood that
Scottsbluff is extremely anxious to
get the plant located there, while
equal efforts are being put forward
by certain stockholders to keep the
company at Alliance.
J. W. Guthrie of the board of
d'rectors has been in Lincoln for
several days and it is reported that
he will have some important informa
tion to impart at the stockholders'
meeting next week. ,

Coal Costx $97,026,624 More
This Year Than Last, Re
port Shows.
Washington, Dec 28. The rail
roads' coal bill for the first nine
months of this year was $97026,
624 more than during the corre
sponding period ,last year, said a
statement issued today by the in
terstate commerce commission. A
resolution asking the commission for
a report as to the amounts spent
by the roads for coal this year and
last was adopted yesterday by the
senate. " .
During the first nine months of
this year the roads spent $326,923,
642 for coal as against $229897018,
the commission's statement showed.
The cetjtral western district had
the lowest coal cost, railroads pay
ing only $3 38 per ton. In 1919. they
paid $2.97 a ton.
The total coal consumption by the
railroads during the nine months of
1920 was 81,752,821 tons, while dur
ing the same period in 1919 they
used 71,619,009 tons. 1

man, who said his home was in Fre

H. Jones, passed a half dozen checks
in Columbus for varying small
amounts. H, H. Adams, a clothing
merchant, gave him $9 in change on
a $10 check, which proved to be
worthless, and others were similiarly
"fleeced." " :
Prior to that a man who was
Charles A. Anderson at one place
and a few moments later Charles A.

instructed the merchants to mail it
to two different addresses. Worth

, National Police
Bureau Is Urged
Governor Edwards Recom
mends Department to Check
v Movements of Criminals..
Trenton, N. J., Dec: 28. Estab
lishment of a central national police
bureau in Washington, through
which information could be flashed
around the world to keep a check
on movements of known criminals,
was one of the principal recommen
dations made at a conference of
state, county and municipal officials
called by Governor Edwards, to de
vise some means of combatting the
present crime wave in New Jersey.
Police Commissioner Enright of
New York City, who suggested the
establishment of a central bureau,
declared the United States was far
below the "fficiency of police of Eu
ropean countries and that the police
of this country could not expect co
operation from foreign countries un
til a system of checking convicts
was adopted. He asserted crimi
nals from England were entering
this, country daily through Mexico.
Mexico. - . ,
"Scotland Yard and other Euro
pean police departments are unable
to secure information regarding
criminals from this country." he-said
"and until we can give them suffi
cient data ' we eannot expect co
operation from , them. . With a na
tional police bureau, communication
could be maintained with Scotland
Yard and other great policegencies
of the world. Lack of co-operation
of the police system throughout the
country is astonishing."
The conference adopted a resolu
tion requesting Governor Edwards
to name a committee to draw up
proposed legislation along the lines
suggested. '
