Vultcd Press carefully avoided uny
mention of the l'aclflc discussion, con
fining Itself to the congratulate prin

Japanese foreign office declared n
favorable answer to President Hard

uneasy because the invitation was ex
tended also to China. Ituly and France.
They feel tho scope of the conference
Is too broad, as It Includes all the
Paclfio problems. They believe here
tha other powers will support the
American view on Pacific matters und
believe Japan should proceed cautious

on disarmament Inconsistent, because
of her altitude toward the league of

result of the raid made near Smith's
place. The brew .utfit had a capae t
of 50 gallons, and 30 gallons of whis

' but' the thicket was so dense that it
required quite a while to make the dis
covery of the still itself. We were
wtihln .10 feet of It several times be- j
fore we walked into the outfit."
Relief ihnt this still might have1

office was made to the cffeVt that Ill's
