WASHINGTON, Oct. (AP)
The arrests made by prohibition
agents along the New Jersey and
Long Island coasts were the result
of the treasury's successful uncov
ering of a gigantic liquor smug
gling ring operating from the
French possessions on the eastern
store of Canada.
The smugglers went to large
expense to purchase new boats to
run rum into the United States
bat the alertness of the depart
ment of commerce in uncovering
their unlicensed radio station re
sulted in their exposure.
The steamer Shawnee was fired
upon about a month ago by the
coast guard In an attempt to cap
ture this member of the smug
gling fleet, . Assistant Secretary
Lowxnan said tonight.
He added that from the inspec

guard had been able through the
commerce department oeeipnenng

nrevent the rum float from land

TORONTO. Oct. If. (AP)
Ramsay MacDonald today was in
troduced as the prime minister of
Great Britain to 1,600 cheering
delegates to the convention of the
American Federation of labor but
he told them "I am still the old
workman I was born."
"The workman Is distinguished
by his mentality and the point of
view he had," he said in the first
address after his arrival from the
United States yesterday. "In
Great Britain I am a party man,
here today, my friends, I do not
represent a party, I represent a
whole nation. I have come across
the Atlantic as he who for the
moment Is charged to represent
the opinion, the nnity, the person
ality of the house of commons."
In his convention address Mr.
MacDonald said an appeal to la
bor was the proper form in seek
lng world peace, and In a second
address during the day before the
Man's Canadian club he said that
while he was not ashamed of being
a Britisher and a Scotsman he
felt "there Is a broader nation
hood in which we all belong."
Tne addresses were prominent
on the prime minister's program
for the day during which he was
called to receive an honorary de
gree from the University of To
ronto and to attend a reception by
the Ontario government before he
