Washington, March 2.—The eighteenth amendment "is a. direct invasion of jurisdiction and powers of the state .and the rights of its. people," the state' of Rhode Island declares in its brief filed in +he United . States Supreme court in reply to the government's motion for the dismissal of its action to obtain injunctlve relief from the amendment. The brief, which was filed by Attorney General Herbert A. Rice of Rhode Island, asserts that the government's view that the amendment is "unassailable," can "only 'lead to' anarchy and oppression." It contends that it is the duty of the court to keep congress in its amendments to the Constitution "within' the scope and jurisdiction of federal authority" and "maintain that line of division between federal and state powers," which has "for so many years insured the harmonious operation of our dual system . of government, ordained and established as perpetual:" The theory of the government "is so subversive of fundamental principles that its acceptance would bring about a constitutional revolution," continues tile brief. "It would convert the sovereignty of the people into a sovereignty of officials. It would endanger civil liberty and those innumerable rights that have been inherited from the common law since the time of Mngna Cbarta. Un- 'der its application the boundary established by the Constitution between federal and state authority could be shifted at will, as officials might be influenced by political coVsirdice or expediency. In fact, all power might be absorbed by the federal government and the states become dependencies, states' only in name, for the mere purpose of having equal representation in the senate." .The brief declares that article V of the Constitution relating to amendments only provides for the "correction of errors committed in fi'aming the Constitution" and that the "amendment functions" ef congress are limited. ' Manufacture and Sale of Alcoholic Beverages Will Be Permitted Un, der Terms of Ruling—Hughes Asks to File Brief. . Milwaukee, March 2.—Manufacture and sale of 2.5 per cent beer, in Wisconsin was legalised in a decision handed down by Federal Judge Geiger in the test ease brought by the Mani^ towoc Products company for an injunction to halt enforcement of the Volstead act. ' : By his decision Judge Gelgeri upheld the'Mulberger law, thus assuming that; state prohibition laws take precedence over federal regulation. ; The decision resulted from the filing of an injunction suit by the Manitowoc Products company, a consolidation of three breweries at Manitowoc, to restrain enforcement of prohibition legislation Insofar as it Interferes'with the manufacture of beer containing 2%. per cent alcohol. • The constitutionality of title 2 of the prohibition enforcement law, which provides for ^he enforcement of' the constitutional' amendment as well as the constitutionality of the amendment itself was attacked duripg the arguments. ' "Congress Acted Illegally. " It was claimed by counsel for the company that congress acted illegally in limiting alcoholic content of liquor which can be sold under the constitutional amendment to an amount less than half'of 1 per cent. It was also argued that the Mulberger law permitting sale of .2% per cent'in Wisconsin has precedence over later federal limitations. ' Attorney William H. Austin and 'Attorney Ralph W. Jackman, Madison, represented the company at the hearing, while United States District Attorney H. A. Sawyer, his assistants and Eugene Mclntyre and Walter Bender, representing the Wisconsin Anti-Saloon league, opposed the granting of a restraining order. Hughes Asks to File Brief.

To :Sov« • Carbondale Waticnal %ank EXTRICATED BY PRESIDENT Manchester Guardian Grateful to Wilson for Exposing England's False' Adriatic Position. Manchester, March 2.—President Wilson's letters in. the Adriatic correspondence, just published, are considered by the Guardian us a refutation "of the reports that his illness had caused some loss of mental force and balance." It asks: "If President Wilson is suffering from any malady of political judgment .could not some American bacterlplogisj: convey us u few germ* mat we may Inoculate bur "European premiers?" The Guardian eontliraes: "One's chief regret in reading President Wilson's admirably phrased p!ea for a wise and honorable policy in the Adriatic is that it should have been left to him to frame it. One feels that England somehow has surrendered her rightful part in the.drama ro an American. It is we who should have raised our voices first against the proposed terms of a settlement which expressed the very spirit we went to war to defeat. . -. We should all be grateful to Mr. Wilson for extricating us from a false position." <r : [CHILD SALVAGE IN PICTURES; ARMENIA'S HUNGER CRY HEARD $50,000,000 LOAN TO POLAND Transaction to Be Handled by Peoples' Industrial Corporation, New York.
