DR. HERZ SEES DISASTER
Berlin. June 30. The Communis
Independents are warned earnestly
by Dr. Hen, the Hamburg ultra ra
dical leader of one group of the Ger
man extreme Independents that they
must be resigned to depending for
some time on the intellectual em
ployer's capitalism, whose know
ledge of the economic situation la
still Indispensable and therefore so
cialisation must proceed very slow
ly. , -
"The Communists' demand of a
proletariat Is an effort to reach a
stage of development by violent ad
vance for which the present day con
ditions are not ripe," he says. Only
the underestimation of economic
thought can mislead one to the view
that with methods of violence an eco
nomic advance can be gained. It a
tour years war should be followed by
a tour years civil war the victor
whether Ludendorff, Noake, or the
9partacans will rule over a field of
corpses. It the economic life Is to
bloom again social conflicts must
take a form which eliminates as far
as iposBtble all violent methods."

IfcKtr of Liquor Houses
Washington. June 30. President
Wilson announced tonight that he
will not suspend the operation of the
war-time prohibition law, effective
at. midnight tonight, saying, "I am
convinced that the attorney general
is right in advising me that I have
not legal power al -this time In the
matter of the ban on liquor until
the termination of demobilization.
My information is that there are
still a million men In the service.
When demobilization is completed
my power will be exercised."

at this time means that the long arm
of the war time law will reach out
quietly at midnight Monday and
close the door of every liquor estab
lishment on American soil. Next in

attitude comes the question how soon
will the army be demobilized? There
