tal after November 1, 1917, the Shep-
pard bill was passed by the Senate
today and now goes to the House,
where, its friends assert. It Is assured
of passage. The vote In the Senate
was 55 to 32.
White the measure prohibits the sale
of liquor In the District of Columbia,!

Neither the vote on the referendum

Bill Provides Against Giving;.
The prohibiting language of the bill
says that after November 1:
"No person or persons, or any house,
company, association, club or corpora
tion or his, agents, officers, clerks, or
servants, directly or indirectly, shall, in
the District of ColumLia, manufacture
for sale or gift. Import for sale, offer
for sale, keep for sale, traffic in. bar

liquors for beverage purposes or for
any other than scientific, medicinal,
pharmaceutical, mechanical, sacra
mental, or other non-beverage pur

Another section says the measure
shall not be construed to prevent "the
manufacture, importation, exportation
or sale" of denatured methyl alcohol,
or of ethyl alcohol for scientific medi

All common carriers bringing liquors
into the District are required to keep
a record of the shipper and consignee,
who must make affidavit that they are

Heavy penalties are provided for vio

physicians who prescribe liquor for
patients without cause.. A right to
cue for damages from the person who
sells liquor to a person who is in
jured in "person or property" In con
sequepce of Intoxication is given to
Export Not Prohibited.
Efforts absolutely to forbid manu
facture In the District and export from
it were beaten without a record vote.
An amendment by Senator Phelan,
which would permit sale of "wine, ale,
beer and porter." also was defeated.
There was evident a Bpirlt of bit
terness on the part of many Senators
and a feeling of tension that was
only broken a few times when amend
ments were offered or suggestions
made that the Senate and the galleries
thought humorous. The spectators,
halt their number women, made only
one real demonstration, that of hearty
approval, when the final vote was an
nounced. Twice during the debate,
however, the noise became so great
that President pro tempore Saulsbury
had to threaten to clear the galleries.
While the Sheppard bill was under
consideration in the Senate legislation
to prohibit liquor traffic in Hawaii
was urged before the House territories
committee by representatives of the
AntS-Saloon League of America and the
Women's Christian Temperance Union.

guments in favor of a drastic liquor
prohibition law in Alaska.

original estimates sent to Congress.
There Is some doubt whether the Tilla

IRISH PROBLEM III
CA AD A
Lord Shaughnessy May Be
Man to Settle Issue for
DOMINION TO BE EXAMPLE
Question Declared to Be Only Half
as Difficult as That In Which
Both Kace and Religion
Kept Peoples Apart.
BT JOHN C ALLAN CLAUGHLIN.
MONTREAL, Quebec. Jan 8. (Spe
cial.) Lord Shaughnessy, the single
Canadian who is a member of the
British house of peers, may be the
man to solve the Irish question for
thfe British Empire.
Lord Shaughnessy probably will leave
Montreal in March for the purpose of
attending the sitting of the House of
Lords and participating In its delibera
tions in connection with questions of
vital moment to all British peoples. In
addition, the understanding Is that his
advice will be sought by the govern
ment with reference to the development
of a solution of the problem which
has been a subject of century-long
concern to the British nation that of
Lloyd George Is Determined.
It is known that the Lloyd George
ministry has determined to remove the
Irish question forever from British and
even from international politics. The
man who is likely to figure as the real
adviser of the government on, Ireland
is Lord Shaughnessy, who was born In
Lord'Shaughnessy is of Irish parent
age and always has kept informed on
Ireland and the developments In that
The world does not know that Lord
Shaughnessy was invited to become a
member of the British Ministry. He
was forced by the Importance of his
affairs in Canada to decline the offer.
As a member of the House of Lords,'
however, he will be In a position to
advise the government on all empire
matters, including the problems of Ireland.
Place In Ministry Tendered.
A report was current that he would
be appointed viceroy or at least go to
Dublin In the capacity of advisor to the
Irish government. This report Lord
Shaughnessy believes, so those in his
confidence say. grew out of the tender
of a ministerial place to him.
Lord Shaughnessy declined today to
permit Quotation of his views on the
Irish question. The correspondent of
The Oregonian learned, however, that
he believes the Irish question offers no
insuperable difficulties to a satisfac
tory solution. His lordship holds the
situation in Ireland Is less awkward
than it was in Canada before the con
federation. In this Dominion the
French in Quebec were separated from
the English in the rest of Canada both
by religion and race. In Ireland the
single difference lies in religion. Thus,
the Irish situation is half as difficult
as that in Canada.
Canadian Situation Parallel.
Lord Shaughnessy does not see why
Ireland should not enjoy confederation
or, to put it in another way, home rule,
under conditions similar to tbose which
prevail in Canada. Lord Shaughnessy
is impressed with the importance of an
early solution of the Irish question. He
does not consider it merely an English
question or a British question. He re
gards it as an International question.
The whole British Empire is interested
In it. not only because of the situa
tion in Ireland but because there are
Irish in Canada, in Australia and in
India, who are agitating for their fel
low countrymen at home.
The international aspect of the ques
tion lies in the fact that there are so
many Irish men and women in the
United States and other countries. By
solving the Irish question, Ireland will
be taken out of international as well
as Empire politics.
End of Agitation Predicted.
The agitation of professional Irish
men in the United States against Great
Britain will cease because there will be
no cause to promote. The feeling of
Irishmen in the British colonies against
Great Britain will disappear for a like
reason. Under the plan which is be
ing discussed, the different countries'
of Ireland will have their own local
Parliaments, Just as the United States
and the provinces in Canada have their
own local Legislatures. Ttiere will be
an Irish Parliament, in which all the
Irish people will have representation,
and an Irish ministry, which will have
power under a constitution similar to
that granted by the British crown of
Canada. Thus Ireland will have what
in fact would be home rule.
The British government has been
moved to the decision to act gener
ously by Ireland because of the large
participation by the Irish in the Eu

has been . mentioned in the stories of
money made through a "leak." took the
stand today and denied that he had any
advance information on the President's
peace note, the German peace proposals
or Lloyd George's speech.
Sales Based on Own Opinions.
Admitting that he sold short many
thousands of shares of United States
Steel during the period from December
12 to December 21, he said his action
was due solely to his belief that this
was the proper attitude to take on the
market, in view of the general opinion
that the way had been opened for nego
tiations of peace.
Departing from the direct line of the
investigation. Chairman Henry asked:
"Suppose Congress should pass a law
requiring all these stock exchanges to
be. incorporated and requiring that all
transactions be made a matter of pub
lic record. Would that not have a good
"I do not think so, the witness re
piled. "As it is today, every transac
tion is recorded, and must be. I do
not see what could be gained."
Witness' Honeymoon Trip Deferred.
Charles H. Sabin, president of the
Guaranty Trust Company of New Tork,
who was brought here on a subpena at
the suggestion of Law son Just as he
was about to leave for Europe on his
honeymoon, reached the witness stand
shortly after his boat had sailed from
Sabin frankly corroborated a story
told by Lawson to the effect that In
October he called representatives of
New Tork newspapers to his office and
told them that he had reason to be
lieve that the German government was
a"-out to ask President Wilson to sug
gest peace to the allies. This infor
mation, ha said, came to him through
sources not connected with the United
States Government, and he gave it out
because he felt that the country was
entitled to know it because of the ef
fect such a move would have on the
affairs of the Nation.
Stoclc Never SoLd Short,
He denied that he was Impelled in
any way to make the move by stock
market holdings, declaring he never
had sold a share of stock short in
his life and was not In the market
on the day the "leak" is supposed to
Otto Kahn, of Kuhn, Loeb & Co.. who
was called at the suggestion of Rep
resentative Wood, read into the record
a statement denying that be was in
any way connected with a "leak" or
that he had ever sold short in his life.
He was excused after testifying briefly.
Allan Curtis, of Boeton, called by the
committee on a suggestion that he
might be the "A. Curtis" who wrote to
Representative Wood, occupied the
stand long enough to deny that he was
the writer. He wrote his signature
for the committee that it might be
compared with that of the unidentified
"informant," and then left the stand.
Punishment Is Provided.
A bill designed especially to provide
for the punishment of persons who re
fuse to testify at the "leak" inquiry
committee was introduced today by
Representative Caldwell, of New Tork.
It would make IV unlawful for anyone
to disobey any House order. Any Fed
eral court would be authorized to pun
ish the offender for contempt.
While Thomas W. Lawson was on
the stand Representative Chipperfleld
questioned him with a view to showing
that he was a beneficiary of the falling
Lawson denied he was connected with
any stockbrokerage firm, but admitted
he operated occasionally as an in
dividual through brokers.
"My purpose," said Mr. Chipperfleld,
is to show that Lawson, who says
he was not the recipient of any leak,
dealt largely on the stock exchange
during this break. I want to show up
his transactions which were conducted
Independently of a leak. If he can op
erate successfully without a leak, then
I condemn the effort being made here
to Indict other men for operating suc
cessfully on that same market.
Lamoi Names Broker.
"Give us the names of your brokers,"
After a wrangle Lawson Bald one
brokerage firm with which he operated
was H. Content & Co, 111 Broadway,
Chipperfleld then asked a series of
questions to show that Lawson began
a selling campaign In December and
asked if his transactions in steel did
not aggregate as much as $300,000.
Lawson said he bad no idea what they
aggregated. He would not give a di
rect answer when asked if he had op
erated a selling campaign.
In answer to a question by Repre
sentative Can trill if in case an inves
tigation of the leak were ordered by
the House he would agree to give the
new committee the names of the mem
bers of Congress he had in mind and
of the Cabinet official who he said
had been a beneficiary of the leak,
Lawson said emphatically:
Efforts by Mr. Chipperfleld to In
duce Mr. Lawson to state the amount
of his profits on the stock market dur
ing December were futile. Lawson
maintained he did not know whether
he made $1,000,000 or $500,000.
Othern Blay Have Forealgnt.
"Weren't there others throughout the
country who might have foreseen a
break in the market as you did?"
"Hundreds of them."
By a process of elimination, Mr. Chip
perfleld then established by questions
that Lawson had no knowledge which
would be accepted in court of any
broker, including Bernard Baruch.
who was operating on a "leak," of any
officer of the Government who had any
knowledge of a "leak," or of any mem
ber of either house who operated on
the exchange during December, either
on a "leak" or otherwise.
Representative Chipperfleld then
urged Lawson to give the name of the
"leaker" he was reported to have given
to Chairman Henry In confidence 10
Again Lawson refused to answer, on
the ground that to make public the
name would result in more serious con
sequences to the country than his being
punished for refusing an answer.
Representative Can trill then asked
Mr. Lawson If he would furnish all
the names to a special Investigating
committee should the rules committee
recommend and the House order an in
quiry. "I will." replied Lawson emphatically.
"If there is a drastic investigation I'm
willing-under those circumstances to
say that it would be more serious for
me not to give the information I have
than to give it. But I do believe it is
too serious a matter to give before
this committee has determined what It
"Tou really have no Interest In any
investigation about the leak anyway,
have you?" asked Representative Gar
rett. "All on earth you want Is an in
vestigation of the stock exchange that
will lead to Federal regulation, is it
"Yes. that's true," said Lawson,
frankly, arousing the surprise of some
members of the committee.
"The only motive behind your agita
tion of this matter is to force a drastic
inquiry into the stock exchanges for
legislative purposes?" Garrett contin
ued. "Absolutely," said Lawson.
