I WITH COCAINE USERS; JIANY
AMERICAN WOMEN ARE VICTIMS
IT will be very interesting to see what congress does regarding
Henry Ford's offer to take over .the uncompleted Muscle
Shoals power plant and fertilizer plant on the Tennessee
river. This project was started during the war in order to make
sure of n nitrate supply for war purposes. Money was voted by
congress but not enough for completion of the project In the
last congress an apropriation for the project passed the senate
but was killed in the house. e '
The following statement as to the Ford offer is from a bulle
tin by the department of commerce, headed by Herbert Hoover:
The secretary of commerce toilay transmitted to Secretary Weeks a pro
posal of Mr. Henry Ford for the utiliaition of Muscle Shoals. The discussion
lrairtinf; up to this offer were conducted by Assistant Secretary of Commerce
Hi"H with the approval of the secretary of war.
The negotiations grew out of representations made to the department of
tcntnmercc by the Mississippi Valley Association, the Tennessee Valley Assdcla
tii :i. and the American Farm Bureau Federation, all of whom are earnestly
Interested in seeing (hat th great uncompleted project upon which the gov
ernment hits already expended SSO.tOO.OOO should not disintegrate altogether
mid ;hat the improvement to transportation on the Tennessee river should not
U- '0.-1. .
The principal points In Mr. Ford's offer are:
1) He will take a 10u years lease upon the Wilson Dam and No. 3 dams
mid electric installation when completed. This work is estimated to cost JJS.
tifln ,(,. After a short preliminary period. Mr. Ford proposes to pav interest
at the rate of. per cent on the sum of i2K. 000.000 and to amortize not only
this unn but the entire cost of both darus over a period of 100 years.
To purchase all tho nitrate plant and equipment, lands, steam plant,
etc.. for $3,000.00. . . '
3 To cjnvert and operate the large nitrate plant (No. 2 for the produc
tlon of fertilizer compounds and as a standv-for government explosives in
case of var and to keep it up to date in bollrarts.
4 To limit the profits of the fertilizer plant to 8 per cent, an independ
ent iMjard enihoirying representatives of the American Farm Bureau and the
..aii.inal Grange and the Farmers" I'nlon to certify to this maximum.
The completion of these works makes the -Tennessee navigable to Chatta
niMiKit, i.nd there are undertakings by" Mr. Ford fur maintaining the locks, etc.
Th iw-wer developed will ultimately greatly exceed the requirements of the fer
tilizer pla'it, and Mr. Ford proposes to use it In his own business. In ordtjr to
meet the annual payments proposed a very iHrge use of power must be made
mlsiue the fertilizer works.
Secretary of Commerce Hoover stated "that the acceptance of the offer
was c nt;iely for decision by congress, and that body would no doubt be guided
l y Secretary Weeks" views in the matter. Mr. Ford has made a genuine pro
liiiN.il. !t shi.ws courage to agree to pay out t3.0u0.0o0: to spend further sums
upon large works, and besides to take an annual obligation for about $1,500,
o ii for loo years, and to agree to maintain a nitrate plant in reserve for the,
o eminent for that period. Whatever may be the result. Mr. Ford's offer
dos il-me what the public associations hava contended that the completion
or this project has a tomercial vjtlue.''
If congress wishes to favor development of unused resources
and save an $80,000,000 investment it will accept the Ford of
fer, unless a better one appears, or it will complete the project
through an appropriation. If congress thinks more of petty
Io!iiVs and spite work than of national prosperity or if it wish
es tc ttrve private electrical interests it will reject the offer and
lot the projecjt go unfinished.
Will the coming disarmament conference be an ODen affair

It now develops that the chief reason why republican editors
in Washington have attacked Governor Hart for alleged extra v-
usance is mat ne nas reiusea to oust a democrat from the state

he refuses to listen to the spoils hunters.

International Xews Service
P'Al:iS. July 25. A veritable secret
society i cocaine users, growing daily
in membership, is baffling the French
police in their efforts to stamp out the
drug evil. -
The secret organization has code
names fur known 'purveyors of the
drftg and a variety of code names for
the drug itself. It is feared that It.in-,
eludes in its membership a large num
ber of police agents whose duty Is to
suppress the traffic, and also of cus
toms officials who make it easy to
bring cocaine into the country. . .
The ,increase in the number of
"coke" users has become so great that
the French Academy of Medicine is
calling for the enactment of drastic
laws to curb the evil. The Academy is
being supported by a number of news
papers In its demand tiiat long terms
of imprisonment be meted out to co
caine -Belters and users instead of
fines, which often do not exceed. $10.
, One big cafe, a stone's throw from
the Paris Opera, is one of the biggest
center of cocaine traffic. Most of the
drug that reaches Paris comes in from,
l-eri.'.any. It is alleged that French
and American soldiers from the ar
n ies of occupation briny in the largest
slia.e. They make 1300 per cent on
their investment and easily escape dis
covery because they wear the uniform.
Their supplies are turned over to a
regular "cocaine" syndicate, whose
agents gather in the big cafeteria in
the .ieart of ,the city to receive their
sharei of "coke" to be peddled all over
Half a dozen demi-mondes, who are
veil known to the syndicate, operate
in this one cafe alone. They are well
' nown to the regular drug users and
they Know their clientele. A stranger
whe applies to one of them for a "bou
ouct of flowers," a name commonly
applied to the white powder by its
victlng, is indignantly turned down.
A legislar user has no difficulty at all.
