O'Brien was nominated with Ihe support ol all factions of New YorSr city Democracy, but his selection was regarded as another triumph for the forces of Gov. Franklin b. Roosevelt and Alfred E.

Judge Cunningham's ruling, which was really in the nature ol a warning, followed admission by Frank Witle, agent for the revenue department, that he had dispatched the cigarettes to Little Rock after the petition, alleging unlawful seizure, had been filed.

Butler had made the statement in open court the day before that (he cigarettes had already been sent to Little Rock, at a time when they were actually still in this city, according to admissions by Witte.

Many difficulties are seen. These arrive out of the desire vf farmers n the debtor nations to protect heir own home markets, Mid out of the almost certain protests of •hird countries should debtor na- •Iqns give American produce pre- erred.'Status. . • Government economists suggested the following two ways in vhlch such a trade might Ije curried out,: 1—By an agreement under wlilch a'foreign country would reduce or remove Its tariff on American farm products for n year In return for cancellation of its annual debt payment. 2—By agreement ot a forclRii government, to subsidize American agricultural Imports for a year. For example the British government might agree to pay to Lancaster cotton mills 10 cents for each dollar's worth of cotton imported from the United States and credit this subsidy against the war debt.
