PAGE EIGHT. UATUr COTTKriSK, FRIDAY, JANUARY 3, 1.930. PROHIBITION ISSUE WILL BE FOUGWIN HOUSE Numerous Measures Are Expected t o Involve Wets and Brys hi "Warm Debates. PRISON REFORM '.* WILL ALSO BE UP By KENNETH O. CRAWFORD, United Press Staff Correspondent. WASHINGTON, Jan. 3.--The prolil- 'bition. tempest stirred u* by Senator Borah, Republlcaa, Idaho, during the holiday recess is expected to sweep into tho House wing of the- Capitol next week when Congress reconvenes. Several measures likely, to provoke a renewal of debate between wets and lrys are scheduled for early consideration., by the ltoxiH-3 and its committees. ' Chairman Snell of the Rules Committee plans to start early hearings on a Senate bill to authorize appointment of a joint congressional committee to investigate tbo advisability of consolidating prohibition enforcement agencies In tho Department of Justice. This measure passed the Senate almost without debate but is expected to encounter rougher going la the House. Somo ilrys there doubt the wisdom of disturbing prohibition enforcement machinery at this time, ' Tho five prison reform and extension bills reported favorably by tho Judiciary Committee and scheduled for consideration in the House next Wed- -iioscluy also may bo a f r u i t f u l source / of prohibition debate although the measures themselves virtually are unopposed. Dratted by the Department of Justice and re-ported almost without amendment, tho bills provide for construction o£ two new penal institutions at an estimated cost of ',57,000,000, establishment o f » a hospital for criminal insane, changes in the parole system and liberalization of regulations governing the administration of Federal penitentiaries. Representative I/a Guardia, Republican, Ne-w York, in questioning Attorney General Mitchell at hearings on tho prison measures, Indicated tho wet Woe, while not opposing the legislation, will undertake to use it as an. anti-prohibition argument. Tho real prohibition tussle ivlU start when tho House takes up the Interior Department appropriation bill, which provides funds for tho agencies now (-ntrusted with enforcement. This mays bo several weeks henco as the appropriations committee plans to bring out tho War Department supply b i l l next. Ordinarily the- Interior bill is the first considered but a fight within the Appropriations Committee over the sUo of tho prohibition enforcement f u u d is understood to be holding it up at this uesi-.ton. So far, Borah's blasts against prohibition enforcement officials have created but slight stir among House members. Weis arc not yet organized for their offensive and drys are ailent, believing they can help t h e i r cause most by a hutuls-o££ policy. Tiie wet bloc Is scheduled to meet January 0 to formulate- a program for the- session. PLOT AGAINST FASCIST RE BEING UNEARTHED By U u i l o d Press.' PARIS, Jan. 3.--8onsiU.iomil rlo- velopmcnls iirvolving ;m alleged terrorist organization wiiii ram.iflcalionK extending i.o all European capitals; and directed against, I he Italian Fas- ist government, wore expected shortly as the result ol' Use recent arrest of three journalists charjrod. with plotting against Beuito Mussolini.

A prominent Italian, whose check Cor a large amount of money was f o u n d in the pocket of one o£ the prisoners, already ha:' been questioned by tho police. Agents of the surcte gone-rale arc now seeking the man who furnished tho alleged plotters with quantities ol! explosives found at their headquarters, Tho arrests are- linked with recent anti-Fascist aetivitie iat Brussels and "along the Riviera, and particularly with tho recent attempt to assassinate Crown Prince Hnmlx rt at Brussels. While it Is believed the aim of the alleged conspirators \va.s to attack tho Italian delegation as it passed through Paris ou its way to the London naval conference, it is thought that Foreign Minister Grancli,. w! o will conic to Paris J a n u a r y 15, was to luiv-o been the special target of the plotters.
