"This is a showdown between the federal government and the violators of the federal amendment," said Major Dalrymple, "I am going to enforce prohibition. I do not want bloodshed, but if the state authorities stand in the way and they are backed by their political cohorts, I am going to shoot. I do not believe the rowdyism displayed by the state officials as reported to me, represents the'feeling of the people of the state of Michigan. These people showed by their vote some time before the amendment just what they thought of prohibition." U. S. Officer Withholds Warrant The arrests, will be made without warrants, according to instructions from Washington, for it is said that when federal officers here asked TJnlted States Commissioner Hatch of Marquette, MI cli., to prepare , the warrants for the arrest of the men It was learned .that the .tTnlted States district attorney at Grand Eapids, Myron H. Walker, had;instructed him to withhold the warrants. This move caused Assistant Prohibition Commissioner H. M. Gaylord to instruct Major Dal- rjafiple to proceed at once, under arras, » arrest the men and seek the warrants later, after the matter had been reported to.him. : Miracles m Money city skyscraper_seems•:' a /miracle in plaeMerid-tb end and one above another. •'.'•• '•• ••-•'. :- •'•:..,-:''J'-- •'.. •' .'. -:' !

The board explained it was aware of the implied power to rectify, the condition which confronts the country. This power necessarily followed the authority for and employment of an elastic system for reserve credit and note issue, it was added. Recommendations also were mnde to congress for amendment of the reserve act which would permit reserve banks with approval of the federal reserve board, to establish normal maximum lines of credit accommodation for member bunks. An ascending sc-ale of. rates would be provided in 'event, money was borrowed above the--maximum line. This; the board. believed would induce banks to hold their own' large, .borrowers in check . and - thus work to the end that credit expansion on a large scale \yD,uld be stopped. . • Warning was given that the country must guard against too rapid.deflation While., the ,board.,was.; sympathy with measures to, overcome this evil, it pointediout that,.remedies:employed -to correct inflation might-icre^ ate conditions worse than Inflation itself. . .;. .._. . . , .
