Washington, Mav 22. Enemy prop
agandists in the United States ' today
found themselves in a'close-mesheu net;
due to tlio signing by President Wilson
of the 'sedition bill". This nvasure is
the most drastic ever enacted to catch
and punish the enemy agents.
It imposes a prison sentence of twen
ty years, a fine of $10,000 or both on
anv person who:
Writes, prints or utters anything
tending to oastruct a liberty loan cam
paign, recruiting for tho army or navy,
or anything villifying the government
or officials, or tending to incite resist
ance to them or who by word or deed
favors the cause of Germany or hor al
lies. It tak.96 away mail privileges from
persons convicted of violating them. If
a man violates the act, no mail addres
sed to him, and none sent out by him
will be delivered.
It is one of a trio of laws President
Wilson asked congress to enact to
strengthen the government m dealing
with internal enemies.
The others are bills penalizing sabot
age aud destruction of war materials
and that including women under the
terms of the enemy alien law.
All nro now in effect.
The department of justice today an
nounced that registration of women un
der the last namod law will begin Mon

Now, it chanced that Argentina

Hut they couldn't very well marry till

"I know, Susfiolil" said Argentina
oxeitedly "IIo's expecting news from

SLOGANS RECALL CHAMBERLAIN
Editor Journal: I was just roading
the slogans of the different candidates
in thfl past primary and my mind ran
inck to the pre-election speech made
by George E. Chamberlain at tho ar
mory, es to how he tended Wilson
aud told us that he should stay by the
iiresidont, and how, after election, he
eft bis seat in the sen a to and went t
New York and denounced our whole
war propaganda and said that the
United States bad fallen down end

that was beneficial to the kaiser and
was used to encourage our eiwmy sol-

land are amazed at the enormous and
wonderful strSdles that Amorica is mk-,

introduces a resolution for a committee
to prolie everything and thus retard

that he had plenty of pastime while
