"Tales of Baron Munchausen," former
President William Howard Taft de
clared tonight in an address on anti
Semitism before the Anti-Defamation
league founded by B'nai B'rith.
"One of the chief causes of suffer
In and evil in the world today is
race hatred, and any man who stimu
lates that hatred has much to answer
for." Mr. Taft said. "When he does
this by the circulation of unfounded
and unjust charges and the arousing
of mean and groundless fears, his
fault is more to be condemned.
"How much of the article Is due to
Mr. Ford's initiative one cannot say.
But of course he is responsible for
the effect."
Chargf Held Groundless.
Discussing the charge based on the
alleged protocols of a Jewish conspir
acy for world domination, through
Jewish International bankers. Mr.
Taft continued:
"No Instance of the exercise of this
world-controlling power Is cited a
proof. The conclusion of the author
rests on his own assertion and the
further comprehensive and entirely
satisfying assurance that everybody
knows it.
"One might hare made such an un-
eastained Generalization with some
hepa of securing the credence of gul
lible people before this great war, but
ha Is bold Indeed who ventures it
new. Was it the international bank
era and capitalists that brought on
Germany's declaration of war? Was
it the international bankers and capi
tallsts who drove Great Britain to
the defense ef Belgium? Was it the
world controllers that led Italy Into
the struggle? Could absurdity reach
a greater height?

"If it be true that International
bankers and capitalists are Jews
alone; If it be true that they wield a
world power that controls govern
ments and nations and wars and
peace and economic law, can the au
thor of these articles in the Dearborn
Independent explain why it is that
now more than half the 13.000,000
Jews In the world are still suffering
not only persecution and oppression,
but the bitterest penury and starva

are the only things in literature that
should be classed with these proto

putea wealthy Seattle widow, who
created a stir in maritime circles sev
eral months ago when she arrived
here on board the yacht On Time
Again, is engaged in a big land ven
ture on Palmeto del Verde islands, 50
miles south of Mazatlan, Mexico, ac
cording to L. B, Jensen of Yakima,
wash.
Jensen, accompanied by his tfauarh
ter. Mrs. C. H. Dill, arrived here to
day on the Pacific Mail liner San
Juan. He said there were more than
40 families from Taklma attempting
to till the soil on Verde island, and
that their efforts were not proving
satisfactory; that many of them were
trying to return to their homes in
Washington.
Jensen fcaid he went to the Mexican
island to investigate the land for
Seattle syndicate, and reported that
the land was too sandy for agricul'
tural purposes.
The principal crop Is shrimps, he
says, which are washed from the
ocean up the arroyos and creek beds.
More than 1 00,000 was invested by
the land prospectors In the belief that
the soil would prove profitable agri
culturally, and in the belief that oil
was stored in its strata, according to
Jensen.
Mrs. Harper during her stay here
received much publicity when it was
reported that the On Time Again was
en route to Mexico to engage in some
illicit trade.
It was stated that agents of the de
partment of justice bad investigated
the contemplated activities of the
yacht, but decided that the.vessel had
been on a legitimate enterprise and
she was given a clean bill of health.
MA XT SOLDIERS GET MARRIED
IX TWO-YEAR PERIOD.
Records Show 102 0 Nuptials Were
Almost as Xumerons as in
' . ' Previous Year.
VANCOUVER, Wash., Dec. 23.
(Special.) No less than 11JJ0O per
sons, 5500 couples, have been married
in Clarke county since the first week
in January, 1919, according, to records
of the county auditor,.' J. L, Garrett.
It is possible that this number wiK
be increased by. 100 couples by the
end of two full years. Last year on
the day before Christmas 38 couples
were married here.
However, during 1919, there were
many Soldier weddings in the city,
and now there are almost none. The
persons getting married during the
past year were on an average older
than for 1919, the average that year
being reduced by war conditions, and
the fact. that this was a military post
and thousands of soldiers were sta
tioned here.
It was noted that many widows,
both "grass" and "sod," have been
carried during the past year, and in
hundreds of cases tie bride was as
old, or older than the bridegroom. If
the number of soldier weddings were
subtracted, It would seem that the
number of persons married here this
year was actually greater than dur
ing 1919, though the total shows
about 90 less to date, but there are
yet six days for the office to be open
this year, which will reduce this
shortage.

LATINS RECEIVE COLBY
EXCHANGE , ALSO PROBLEM
FOR TJ. S., SAYS SECRETARY.
Commercial Attache Tells of Amer.
leans' Desire to Help
Brazilians.
RIO JANEIRO, Dec. 23. In speak
ing at a reception given here today
by the North, American chamber of
commerce. Secretary of State Colby
of the United States declared that the
exnhanee Question is a world-wide
problem which confronts the United
States as well as the countries of
Smith America. The reception was
attended by many representatives of
Brazilian commercial associations. -
Secretary Colby said that the ques
tion of exchange was a matter of eco
nomic equilibrium and could not be
solved in a day. He declared this
problem, which is agitating Brazil at
present, also Is presenting difficul
ties in the continent to the north.
Sebastiano Sampaio, commercial at-
tii-ha nf thn Brazilian embassy in
Washington, who accompanied the
secretary on his trip to South Amer
ica, referred In an address to the var
ious representations which he had
brought from commercial bodies of
the United States expressing a desire
to aid Brazili in the problems of Its
commercial men. As an instance, he
cited a letter from a banker advising
Brazilians to restrict purchases from
the United States in order to help the
exchange.
Senator Alfredo Ellis in his address
of welcome to Mr. Colby when the
latter visited the senate this after
noon, made special reference to the
Monroe doctrine.
"To your great nation as the older
brother of the 17 republics of the new
world was reserved the hard task of
watching over the liberty and safety
of the whole family." Senator Ellis
said. "That programme was defined
and known throughout the world as
the Monroe doctrine. Even now,
faithful to the old doctrine, the Ameri
can people continue to maintain it in.
stead of accepting the rules and
statutes of the league of European
nations.
'Many think that the Monroe doc
trine means the whole continent is tc
be considered as 'a hunting ground
for the Americans,' on account of theii
power and preponderance over their
weaker brothers. Luckily your great
president, Mr. Wilson, speaking to the
Mexican people defined recently and
clearly the spirit and true significance
of the doctrine 'it is a doctrine of
defense."
The doctrine was a compromise to
defend the American republics against
incursions. In proclaiming that doc
trine, the North American government
became the champion of liberty
hroughout the new world. No one of
soundmind can imagine that Wash
ington s sword should be Used as an
instrument to plant the seed of op
pression over all America, instead of
mat or uoerty in Dotn continents.
Responding, Secretary Colby ex
pressed deep appreciation of the re
ception given him by the senate and
the utterances of Senator Ellis. He
reiterated that the purpose of his visit
was to repay that of President Pessoa
to the United States.- Mr. Colby said
President Pessoa left a lasting im
pression In the minds and hearts of
the North American people and that
President Wilson had charged him to
express to the Brazilian people the
feelings of esteem and abiding
friendship of the North American
people for them.

mine operators here today rejected
the demands of the hard coal mine
workers for additional wage increases,
a minimum Je-a-day labor rate and
the establishment of a universal
eight-hour day.
The operators, however, notified the
miners' representatives that they
stood ready to adjust any "individual
cases of Inequality" that may be due
to the application of the commission's
award.
Mine workers' representatives told
the operators that they could not ac

their original demands.

They said that the entire matter
would be placed before the. union's
general scale committee at a special
meeting in Haselton next Tuesday,
when a "definite policy for future ac
tlon" will be outlined:
The miners asked general increases
of approximately 13 per cent, In addt
tion to the 17 per cent granted them
by the commission. This, they con
tended, would give them wage ad
vances equal to the 27 per cent re
cently awarded the bituminous mine
workers.
The operators. In rejecting the
miners' proposals, declared that the
agreement with the- United Mine
Workers, based on the findings of the
commission, was a "binding con
tract," and its repudiation would be a
''breach of faith with the .public,"

classes of workers In other industries

RAIL FARES HIT -ACTORS
Rates Ruin , Traveling Ventures

ment of actors throughout the coun
try, the Actors' Equity association

duced fares.

seeking to have income taxes of
authors, artists, playwrights and
composers levied on average earn
ings over a period of years, because
in the case of the suddenly success'
ful "no account was taken of the
lean years."

Miss H. Bearcroft
Tells How Cuticura
Healed Eruptions
0&k
" When I was a child I was both
ered with a sore eruption on my bead.
It was as large aa a quar
ter and had a scale on it,
and every time I ran the
comb through my hair it
would about set me crazy.
At times it would burn
something fierce and
caused me much pain. I
was also bothered with pimples and
blackheads on my face. The pimple
would fester and burn, making me
very uncomfortable.
''I began using Cuticura Soap and
Ointment and after a little the burning
almost immediately stopped. When
I had used the Cutltura Soap and
Ointment for a week I was healed."
