His answer was as given above. The fact that Gen Wisser, department commander, was not opposing t prohibition because he refused some ' weeks ago to sign a petition to the president which the chamber of commerce was circulating, and that he voiced hi3 views concerning the I'qnor question as soon as the proper opportunity came for him as an army officer Is borne out by the foregoing message. i NEW YORK STOCK 1 I MARKET TODAY i Officials Say His Appointment Seems Certain; If So, Kemp Goes to Supreme Bench (Special Star-Bulletin Vv'ireless) WASHINGTON, D.
