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.' Allen of Madison, ably seconded by Judge Paul Jessen of Otoe county.

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 afternopn. . An unusually "wide open" night last night, with bargain sales in wet goods, showed its .effect today. Many of those arrested were lumberjacks and others almost par alyzed with drink. 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 dow. But the "real stuff" was de clared in the. minority. Is Logging Camp. This logging camp town has been the center of anti prohibition feeling for several months.

Since that time, it Is said, prohi bition agents avoided Hurley, wait ing until complete preparations could be made to make a raid in force. 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 halls, saloons, gambling rooms and bootleg joints flourished openly ch one selling any kind ot liquor obtainable, from moonshine whisky to Italian wine have been numer ous. Onoositinn to anv encroachment from outside took definite form, ! however, after the ambush in Oc tober. It was asserted that the bootleggers organized and issued w a' ina in 'rs' promotion ageni to show himself in Hurley would be shot They vowed, it was said, to keep Hurley "a man's town for real men." Home brewing has become a prominent industry, according to residents of the town, which boasts little more than 3.500 people. Ken ituckians, driven from the bills of their own state by revenue agents, are said to have migrated to this district and. set ujvtheir stills. 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.

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 peace." 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. 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. , i Railroads' Fuel , Bm increases Coal Costx $97,026,624 More This Year Than Last, Re port Shows.
