adulterating liquors and depriving the
Government of Just taxes was made by
Internal Revenue Agent W. T. Chap
man. The first Intimation came
through bis chief clerk, Samuel Rut
ter. who noticed discrepancies in re
turns made by the company.
"We have tied up everything the com
pany has. Including the goods now In
bonded warehouses. Should we de
cide that the company should be prose
cuted to the limit of the law, the stock
"which Is now In our hands and worth
close to half a million dollars, will be
turned over to the United States Mar

receipts turned Into the United States

bought standard Kentucky whisky in
bulk and with the aid of molasses, alco
hol and brown sugar had made four
barrels from the first one and sold un

obliged to ask. He said further that
the reputable wholesalers in the city
were gratified that the Levin company

TUBE REMOVAL OPPOSED
SENATORS WANT TO KNOW WHAT
BTR L1C SON'S MOTIVE IS.
Plan to Substitute Anto Service and
Favor Manufacturer Who Aided
Democrats Is Hinted.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, Feb. 7. The Postofflce Depart
ment has been eo determined In its
assaults upon the pneumatic mall-tube
service In New York, Chicago, St. Louis
and other large cities, and so insistent
upon substituting automobile service,
that Inquiry is being quietly made
around the Senate to ascertain Just
what is back of the move being made
under direction of FostmasterGeneral
Burleson. Whether the inquiry will
take definite form or break Into the
debates of the Senate when the post
office appropriation bill Is up for
passage, is not known.
Only recently Postmaster Colin M.
Selph, of St. Louis, was ordered to
Washington by the department to ap
pear before the Senate committee to
protest against a continuation of the
pneumatic tube service In his city. He
carried out Instructions and advised
the committee that automobile service
would be more satisfactory and more
economical. But after he had conclud
ed his direct testimony he was cross
examined by members of the committee
and then admitted that automobile
service would cost many times the pres
ent cost of pneumatic tube service in
his city. ,
Senators who are not too kindly dis
rsped towards Mr. Burleson and who
do not admire the manner in which he
has been conducting the postal service,
are mindful of the fact that the Postmaster-General
is primarily a politi
cian and is the main political adviser
of the President in the Cabinet. -.
Remembering Mr. Burleson's general
frame of mind, and recalling also that
a prominent automobile manufacturer
was of great aid to the Democratic
National Committee in the last cam
paign. Senators are asking one another
whether there Is some ulterior motive
In trying to do away with the pneu
matic tube service.
It would require several thousand
automobiles to perform the service now
rendered by pneumatic tubes In the
larger cities of the country, and the
Postofflce Department, if empowered
to make the change, could so draw its
specifications as to force the purchase
of automobiles for handling the malls.
The House, after hearing the protest
of the Postoffice Department, voted
aown the proposal to abandon the
pneumatic tube service. What the Sen
ate will do remains to be developed.
But if the pneumatic tube service is
abolished the purchase of automobiles
by the department will be closely
scrutinized, for there are some Repub
Means In the Senate who want to find
the "Ethiopian." if there Is one. In the

WITH THE BRITISH ARMIFS" TV
FRANCE, via London, Feb. 10. (From
a Staff Correspondent of th ABsrx-i-
ated Press.) Senator-elect Hale, of
Maine, who has been visiting the Brit
ish front for the past several days, had
a lively experience from German shell
nre yesterday. He had expressed a
keen desire to see the ruins of Yyres
and his automobile was Just rounding
Deadman's Corner into the Belgian city
when a shrieking 5.9-inch, shell burst a
few lengths behind.
A few yards further alonar the auto
mobile became stalled. When It was
found the oar would not budge the
party sprinted for shelter as several
more shells broke over them. Al
though little Is left of Ypres but piles
of brick and stone, the town remains
a favorite artillery target for the
Germans. It Is needless to say the ex
ploration trip was shortened.
Mr. Hale is proceeding to London
hoping to make satisfactory arrange
ments there for his homeward journey.
He is anxious to reach the United
States In time to take his seat in event
an extra session Is called.

In his address Mr. Clark made a
stirring appeal for party harmony and
the welding of factions, declaring that

Mr. Clark scored the "peace at any

irresponsible agitator who preaches
dynamite and destruction, who demands
changes dictated by the "bludgeon of
the industrial Apache," and who "in
sults and violates that freedom which
our laws confer by the dissemination
of sedition and disorder, and who by
violence would overthrow the very
Government and the very institutions
that are his only protection when he
is pursued, and which give him eco

Fall Defeat Laid to Leaders.
The defeat of the Republican party
last Fall Mr. Clark ascribed to too
many leaders; too many generals who
did not act together. It was an un
pardonable and unnecessary defeat, he
said, which gave the Presidency to the
Democrats, and the responsibility
should rest alike on both factions.
Neither the Progressive who returns
to the party, nor the regular who never
left it, should be entitled to special
consideration, was his declaration, since
on that basis only petty Jealousy and
bickering would be the result.

Americana Only Went Peace at Any
Pricey United States Subjects Ara
Told Treatment Is Considerate.
LONDON, Feb. 10. A Utrecht dis
patch to the Express describes a meet
ins there of a number of Americans
with friends who had Just left Berlin.
The arrivals said that they got the
Impression that Germany wished every
American "to feel on his departure
that German loved America" and that
they were showered with attentions
and compllmenta The dispatch fur
ther quotes the travelers as saying-:
"When the news of the rupture ws
received there was no panic among
the Americans, but Intense activity at
the Embassy. All admired Ambassa
dor Gerard's shirtsleeve manner of at
tending to business, and it must be
recorded that the Embassy took the
situation with unqualified calm and
"The Germans did not exhibit anger
or hatred, probably because they are
rather bored by such Incidents. They
are not angry at the American people,
but extremely angry at President Wil
son, whom they accuse of all sorts of
wicked things. Not 10 people In Ger
many believe that the President Is sin
cere, and some fools believe that he has
been bought by Great Britain.
"Nobody thinks that American Inter
vention In the war would alter the mil
itary position, but It Is admitted that
America's sea power would naturally
help England and make Moewe raids
"The Germans unanimously praise
Count von Bernstorff and expect that
he will g-et an Important post in the
Foreign Office. There is correspond
ing 111 feeling against Ambassador
Gerard, who Is accused of being Wil
son's man or Lloyd George's servant.
t ! declared that he fooled Germany,
and that when he made his speech
at the banquet given him by the
imarimn Association of Commerce and
Trade he knew America was going to
break relations with uermany.
"Ambassador Gerard naturally shrugs
his shoulders at this nonsense. His
latt meeting with Foreign Secretary
Zimmerman was most cordial and Herr
Zimmerman expressed the hope that
war would be avoided."
The travelers are further quoted as
saying that the German newspapers,
with few exceptions, are hostile to
President Wilson, and some "-j0
hostile to Ambassador Gerard. All the
papers are saia 10 proieon m ..
that President Wilson opposed Amer-

Use Cocoanut Oil
for Washing Hair
Tf von want to keep your hair In good
condition, be careful what you wash it
Most soaps and prepared shampoos
contain too much alkali. This dries
the scalp, makes the hair brittle, and Is
very harmful. Just plain mulslfled
cocoanut oil (which Is pure and entirely
greaseless) is much better than the
most expensive soap or anything else
you can use for shampooing, as this
can't possibly Injure, the hair.
Simply moisten your hair with water
and rub It in. On! or two teaspoonfuls
will make an abundance of rich, creamy
lather, and cleanses the hair and scalp
thoroughly. The lather rinses out
easily, and removes every particle of
dust, dirt, dandruff and excessive oil.
The hair dries quickly and evenly, and
it leaves it fine and silky, bright, fluffy
and easy to manage.
You can get mulsif led cocoanut oil at
most any drug store. It la very cheap,
and a few ounces Is enough to last
everyone in the family for months.
The original liquid hair rexaover
never disappoint. Only depilatory'
with guarantee In each packaf.
