Wheeler Renews Fight for Free Silver BOLIVIAN FORCE IS By RAYMOND CROWLEY (AHnoelated I'retn Leaned Wire.) NEW YORK, Jan. 25.—Kurlous bubbles should bo foaming from tho literary pot by nightfall—Sinclair Lewis' now book Is out today. Gut In a large way, too. It Is published simultaneously In 10 countries and 13 languages, including the Polish. Such extensive and instantaneous publication dwells not in the memory of even tho oldest publisher's representative. Title: "Ann Vickers" Ann Vickers" Is what ho calls it— this red-headed author who put tho word Babbitt into the mouths of millions. It bares tho heart and mind of a modern woman. It taken her through school, suffrage work during tho first Wilson administration, settlement houso labors, study of prison conditions, marriage to a social worker who turned but to be "a perpetual courso of bedtime stories"; und H love affair with a crooked judge. Lewis, always burning with editorial zanl, has opinions on such subjects as crime, punishment and whether a woman has a right not to have an unwanted baby. He expresses them In this book. Having written "Ann Vickers," his first novel since he won tho Nobel prize for literature, Lt-wln hus gone Into hibernation In Austria. Reviewing the novel, Lewis Gannett In the New York Herald-Tribune, says: Highly Praised "Sinclair Lewis has dono it again. 'Ann Vickers' . . . belongs In the front rank, with 'Main Street,' 'Babbitt,' and 'Arrowsmlth.' It will shock somo people, stir moro, bore a few (I pity them, with Ico in their veins); but they will all rend it, hlRhbrow and lowbrow alike, and talk about It, with the hot passion which only Sinclair Lewis, among the novelists of today, can arouse. Wells once had that power- Dickons had It; who else?" (United Press Lcated Wire) W ASHINGTON, Jan. 25.—Senator Wheeler, Democrat, Montana, returned today to his free silver battle with a warning that tho country will be forced to blmetallsm, or to Issue of fint paper money which would "wipe out the creditor classes." Wheeler assailed Senator Reed, Republican, Pennsylvania, for Ignorance because he had said that tho Wheeler 16-to-l coinage proposal merely would peg silver prices for tho benefit of silver miners. "Tho great silver mining companion of tho United States are opposed to this bill," Wheeler said, "because they are so tied up with the International bankers they don't dare favor a bill which, Incidentally, would help them but also would help the farmers and laborer* of this country. Dislikes Pending Bill "Tho Guggcnhelms aro opposed to It. They would like to peg Uie price of American-produced silver so they could benefit by It." Wheolcr said the Plttman bill passed by tho Senate at ono time was for the purpose. Plttmun has a similar bill pending now, "It WIIK a subsidy for a few mining companies of the United States," Wheeler continued, "So far as I am concerned, If the Guggenheim Interests would take their heavy hand off this bill and cease their partnership with tho bankers, the bill would have somo chance to pass this session or next. "The International bankers won't permit Increase of the world's primary money If they are able to prevent It." Retorts to Reed Turning again to Heed's argument, Wheeler said: "I want to tell tho gentlemen on tho floor on the other side of tho chamber that we will take blmetallsm c* we will come to paper currency in tho coming sessions of Congress. I don't want to see the country accept flat money that would wipe out the creditor classes. I want to establish a new primary money basis and stop the exploitation of the debtor class by the creditor class. "When a senator on this floor says that this bill Is to peg the price of silver, Is It any wonder that people have said that because a man got rich selling whisky that he Is the greatest financial genius In the world nnd tho greatest secretary of tho treasury since Alexander Hamilton." «ljp WAR Nations Desire to Compose Clash Pending Between Peru and Colombia U.
