late tho f (id oral corrupt practices act,!
was not nsldo by tho supromo court. I
Tho conviction of nlxtccn other do-1

and that tho lower court erred In dis
missing tbo defendant's demurrer.
How tho pollco force surrounded a
building In which contraband liquor
was hidden and staged c thrilling
capture ot the contraband but, with
a John Dee warrant In hand, allowed
tho beautiful horolne ot tho intor
stato smuggling to cscapo, Is tho
story being told along tho streut to
day, as tho result of the arrest of
Frank Miles, sign painter, Saturday
As Mr. Miles has eschewed tbo uso
of spirits for tho past 20 years, as
all men know, tho situation Involves
much mystery.
Saturday night, however, tho beau
tiful femalo stepped oft tho evening
train. She was met by a jltnoy driver,
Anothor jitney was also on tho Job.
I Perhaps Jltnoy No. 2 wns feared to
.contain a "spotter" or to bo a pollco
car, or perhaps not. It Is said that the
woman sought refuge In tho first
convenient shelter, -which happened
to bo the Mlics paint bo op and cached
tho cargo of whisker and gin. Sho
Is said to have bad nough to-art
f.llr n.lfllfl.
Patrolmen, Hilton, Durham and
McDonald threw a cordon around
tho building, whllo Patrolman Dur
ham wont to secure a warrant. Ho
got one of the John Dee variety,
good for the arrest ot any one. Mr.
Miles was nowhere In (the neigh
borhood, but tbo booze was In bis
shop and eventually tho pollco ar
rested Miles.
iNo attempt was made to arrest
tbo woman, who stayed at a local
hotol overnight. Yesterday sho re
turned to California, Tho result is
that prosecution ot tho in tor-state
smuggling chargo collapses and It
will bo hard to convlnco a. local
Jury that Frank Miles Is a bootleg
ger, oven It tho charge against him
is pressed. Ho bad a hearing be
fore U. 8. Commissioner Thomas and
was rcloased on $250 bond.
Miles friends are characterizing
tho comedy of errors as a willful at
tempt to Injure him, whllo tho neu
tral observers ore calling tho whole
affair a pollco bungle.
Tho seized liquor was taken to
tho pollco ntatlon and locked In a
coll by Patrolman Hilton. Acting
Chief Keith Ambrose, in chargo of
thn pollco department during Chief
Wilson's absence Insisted that tho
vault whero contraband Is customar
ily stored, was itho propor placo ot
keoplng. Tho Judgment of Ambroso
finally prevailed and tho liquor now
reposes In tho vault.

No definite discussion In regard to

Tho proposal to temporarily tldo

somo opposition as a diversion of

An altornntivo proposal was tlio

weeks' session, somo deflnlto recom
mendations ot groat consoquonco to
tho agricultural Industry havo boon
placed before the administration
and congress.
Tho commlttecro commends the
abolition ot that section of tho
transportation act designed a min
imum return to the railroads. Tho
fedoratlon demands equal protec

It Is opposed definitely and ng
grcslvelr to tho general sales tax.

Among these who co-operated with
tbo American FarnT'bureau, during

Federal Reserve boards; 8. F. Lev

An authorized summary ot what
was accomplished at this confer

the follewing:
Falmc-w Is Urged
"Tbo American Farm bureau fed

render adequate service, but thoy
should recelvo a reasonable rate ot

uations. Wo realize that the farm
ers' Intorest depends upon abso
lute fairness to tho carriers and
wo deslro to call attention to tho
present situation.
"Tho transportation act of 1920
contained a provision which at
tempts to compel tho interstate
commerco commission to mako ratos
sufficient to produce a minimum
net return of 5H, 6 per cent or
more above nil expenses and taxoa
on tho present value of Araorlcan
"Tho American Farm Bureau fed
oratkn believes this provision la
paternalistic class legislation, as it
attempt to mako a government
guaranty on tho cost plus basis.
This provision has caused tho com
mission to establish excessive in
creases In rntes which have serv
ed to paralyze American Industry.

"Thoy havo corao nt a tlmo when

fore petitions congress to repeal Im
mediately tho guaranty provision In
section 15A of tho transportation
act, and to Instruct the commis

road rates back to pro-war basts In
harmony with othor business.
"Tho fodoratlon recognizes that
In revising our tariff laws tho 67th
congress will levy duties upon Im
ports, net upon n revenue basis
