IS PUT II EFFECT
Foreign Vessels Now on
High Seas Still Exempt.
STAY IS "AUTOMATIC"
Only Craft Sailing After MM-
night Are Affected; Ruling
on C S. Craft Rigid.
WASHINGTON, D. C, Oct. SI.
Provisions of the liquor statutes
held, by Attorney-General Daugh
erty to prohibit transportation and
sale of alcoholic -beverages on
American vessels anywnere, and on
foreign vessels within three miles
of the United States coast, became
effective tonight at midnight.'
The. extension of time ordered by
President Harding to permit ship
lines to arrange their affairs to
conform to the ruling expired at
midnight and enforcement officials
declared suggestions for a further
extension had not been approved.
It was considered probable that
several days would elapse before
customs and prohibition forces
would have at hand specific in
structions as to the scope of their
authority under the Daugherty
opinion, but this, it was declared,
would have no effect on the opera
tion' of the law. . ,
A foreign vessel sailing with in
hibited cargo after today, it was
said, would be liable to the penal
ties fixed by the Volstead act if
and when she entered American
coastal waters bearing that cargo.
Ran Riirld on V. S. Shins. .
American ships, under the ruling
of the attorney-general, which re
ceived the formal approval of Presi
dent Harding, are prohibited from
possessing liquor regardless of
where they are in operation. The
ban was made operative as to ship
ping board tonnage as soon as the
ruling was published, though time
was allowed for the disposal of any
illicit stocks on board vessels of the
fleet then at Bea.
Enforcement officials are hopeful
for a decision coming from the
federal district court in New York,
where the new interpretation of the
law is under fire by both foreign
and American lines, before the ar
rival of a vessel In violation of the
ban necessitate punitive action
against the skip, their agents and
her master as required by law.
Further Stay Automatic.
It is pointed out that only vessels
which clear from foreign ports af
ter midnight tonight come within
the restriction, thus giving a fur
ther "automatic stay" of from five
to -seven days in the cases of most
shins on the regular Atlantic routes
and of an even longer period with
respect to ships crossing the Pa
Absence of formal instructions as
to their procedure will not serve as
t deterrent on customs and prohlbi
tion forces, it was declared, as the
regulations now standing are suf
ficient to permit them to act in
casee of suspected violation.
Administration officials looked to
j.n early decision from Judge Hand
in New York to clear up the situa
tion. If affirmative granting a
permanent injunction which would
restrain the government from tore
ing its interpretation of the law
the decision would act as an auto
matic stay, pending adjudication of
the appeal which the department 01
justice has indicated would be taken
Replies Still Held Hp.
Should Judge Hand vacate the
temporary order, however, the gov
ernment would be free to proceed
with enforcement unless and until
the lines affected brought some new
action in the courts.
Reply by the state department to
the protests of Great Britain against
-seizure of the Canadian schooner
Kmerald tonight still was awaiting
x detailed report from the New York
prohibition director giving details
of the case against that ship.
Report Held Too Meager,
The brief report received yester.
day declaring the Emerald had ille
gally communicated with the Bhore
iy means of small boats was not
considered sufficiently informative
for the purpose of the state depart
ment, which had requested Secretary
...Mellon to obtain and transmit all
dvtatls bearing on the incident.
Under the policy announced ..by
President Harding, enforcement of
the liquor and customs laws at sea
would be restricted to the three-mile
.one except in case of ships which
had established communication with
American territory by their own
boats or in such . a manner as
brought them within the purview of
tle court decision holding such craft
to be legally within the zone, al
though physically outside.
den, Paterson, the largest manu
facturing and mill town in Passaic,
while Elizabeth and ' surrounding
suburban towns are in Union.
In all of the above the anti-prohibition
sentiment is very strong. For
example Essex is ordinarily the ban
ner republican county of the etate.
Hughes in 1916 had 54,167 votes to
34,596 for Wilson or a lead of nearly
20,000 (women not voting),- while
Kdwards, also in a strictly mascu
line poll, had"?9,424 to 33,756. It is
an axiom in Jersey that "as Essex
county goes, so does the state." and
almost invariably this has proved
Of course there are exceptions to
every rule and 1922 may prove it.
That Edwards will carry Essex is
generally admitted. The county has
a heavy German-American popula
tion and many prominent republic
ans have come out for the governor
solely on the liquor issue.
Frellnghuysen- has a heavy load
to carry. He will lose some votes
on the bonus issue, others because of
his support of Newberry and many
more owing to the fact that he is
classed as a conservative. The tar
iff issue, however, will help him as
New Jersey is strong for a high
One of the interesting sidelights
of the campaign shines upon "Sena
tor Prelinghuysen's cellar." His
opponents state that, although he
oted for .the Volstead bill and regu
larly preaches prohibition, there is
at his home in Karitan "the finest
nd largest assortment of liquors
In the United States." . Voters all
ver New Jersey have acquired
thirsts and feelings of resentment
by hearing of the wonderful liquor
that is the legal property of their
senior United States senator.

GflO JURY IliS 4
Two Men Held for Alleged ar-
ceny of Autos by Returns
of Federal Panel.
Albert C. Tanner, Los Angeles
youth, whoj was alleged to have
wandered awy from his home town
with another man's wife and two
children, ultimately settling at Falls
City, r., must answer to a jury, in
the United States court, so the fed
eral grand jury found yesterday in
an Indictment which it returned
charging him with white slavery.
E. J. Lenehan and C. O. Holton
were indicted for the larceny off
automobiles, and Antonio Saso, lo
cal Italian vegetable huckster, was
charged with robbing an interstate
shipment of freight.
Not-true "bills were returned in
the case of Barton Oney, ex-government
forest ranger, accused of
fraud. in connection with tlte pur
chase of supplies at Laptne, Or.
Other not-true bills returned at the
same time freed Lee Summers .and
Warren Ruff, introducing liquor on
a . reservation, Moy Him, charged
with a violation or tne iiarrison
anti-narcotics act, and Nellie B.
Harril, charged with impersonating
a government agent.
Frelinghnynen Denies Charge. '
Frellnghuysen. realizing the dam
aging nature of this charge, ' has
taken great pains to deny it. He
admits, however the possession of
"very small supply" purchased
prior to the enactment of prohibi-
ion, but declares it is aimosi au
gone, and will not do renewea.
Whereat his opponents scotr at mis
explanation, declare that "Freling
huvsen has Dlenty of stuff oceans
of it." but nrofesses poverty fear
ing he may be called upon to treat
other hypocrites," or else lose their
votes. And in the meantime the
"honest laboring men" who were un
able to lav In even a "small sup
ply." are raging at the republican
candidate whose wealth has made
him independent of the prohibition
Yes. it is an interesting campaign
in. New Jersey the first real test
of the popularity or unpopularity
of the Volstead act. National is
sues figure in the fight to but a
mitor degree. Frelinghuysen, of
course, is loud in praise of the "re
markable work" qf congress and the
Harding administration. He has
a strong organization back of him,
and his lieutenants are "working
like beavers. Everything that money
and political brains can do is beirlg
done to help send him back to Wash
ington. But the fact remains that
the election will be decided by the
one burning question, "Do you likf
the prohibition law, or do you not?
Senate Nominees Head Ticket.
William g. Runyon is the repub
lican candidate for governor, and
former Judge Silzer is his demo
cratic opponent. They are cam
paigning, naturally,, but without
arousing any particular interest.
The senatorial nominees are the
head of the " ticket and the victor
probably will drag his associates
along with him. Nobody cares.
Many voters do not know who is
running for governor, and haven t
interest enough to inquire. ,
Tha present New Jersey delega
tion in the loweV house of congress
consists of 11 republicans and one
democrat. The democrats are sure
to gain two, perhaps four. These
battles, like the gubernatorial cam
paign, however, are dull, listless and
Nothing counts in New Jersey
this year except whether Edward I.
Edwards will go to Washington to
turn the hose on the dry United
States. How he expects to accom
plish this is not explained. But that
he will try to do it, and be most
vociferous thereat, - is an admitted
fact. Still he has an election hurdle
to leap and Frelinghuysen's sup
porters publicly express confidence
that the governor is bound to fall
and stub his toe.
Anyway, the ring has been set up.

almost time for the announcer to

if elected he "would make New Jer
sey as wet as the Atlantic ocean.
He didn't do that, it must be ad
mitted, but, to quote one of his en
thusiastlc supporters, "Eddie did
hie durndest." New Jersey may come
under the prohibition law but it is
very far from, being "bone dry." You
can buy liquor almost anwhere in
the state you want to and in many
cases public officials will "tip you
off" as to the best place to go
Liquor sellers have been raided, but
only when United States officials
got on the job. If the state has done
anything to back them up it has not
been apparent. And, rightfully or
wrongfully, Governor Edwards gets
the credit (or discredit, if one is a
prohibitionist) for the conditions
State Normally Republican.
New Jersey is normally a strong
republican state. Wilson lost it to
Hughes in 1916 by 57,964 votes, and
Harding had in excess of 350.000 in
1920. But the year before that Ed
wards had 15,000 majority, and
solely and simply because of his
anti-prohibition platform. It must
be remembered that the women
didn't vote in 1919, so his lead would
rrobably have been 30,000, for ex
perience has shown that the women
in the east follow the election
choices of the men of the family.
There are 21 couotfes in the state
of New Jersey, and in the last presi
dential election 870,000 votes were
cast. Of these 423,000, or practically
one-half were polled in five coun
ties, Essex, Hudson, Camden, Pas
saic and Union. Wilson, In 191$ lost
t lese five by a total of 33,53-5, Ed
wards, for governor, carried them
by 36,664, and his hopes of election
are based on these same districts.
