Substitute "Under Influence of Liquor" for Word "Intoxicated." Say Private Brewing Is Doing Great Harm Also Decide to Take Necessary Steps to Get Decision on Right of Manufacture.' With the object of overcoming the difficulty in convicting persons who drive an automobile while in an intoxicated state, the annual convention of the Canadian Temperance Federation voted at. this morning's session to ask tUs Dominion government to amend the Criminal Code section which deals with this subject to read "under the influence of liquor," instead of driving while "intoxicated." , The convention today also , voted toj ask the Dominion authorities to prohibit the brewing of beer for private use. At present any person may make beer in his own home without, let or hindrance, so long as the liquid is for his own personal use. It is claimed that much harm results from this practice, especially in the rural districts. Regarding the. manufacture of liquor in general, the convention desires to secure an authoritative judgment on the question of whether the .authority to prohibit manufacture rests with the federal or provincial governments. The convention went on record as favorable to "take such steps as may .be necessary to secure such a decision." Increased attendance and animated discussion featured the second day's proceedings held at Stewarton United church. (Continued on 'Page Z, Col. 3) St. Lawrence Route Is . Sharply in Battle Middle West States Take Up 4, Question BY GEORGE HAMBLETON. Staff Correspondent of the Canadian Press. WASHINGTON, Oct. 19. Through the crowded Loop district and the "Black Belt" over a route of thirty miles, Governor "Al" Smith. Democrat nominee for the presidency, rides in Chicago today. His automobile tour, which is scheduled to last three hours, Is preliminary to the speech he will make in Chicago tonight. In the states of the middle west, where Governor Smith has been fighting hard for a foothold, the St. Lawrence waterway route has entered sharply into the battle. Republicans are presenting Herbert Hoover as the recognized leader and spokesman both of the movement to deepen the Mississippi river system through to the Gulf of Mexico and of the St. Lawrence route to the Atlantic. To Analyze Concrete Collapsed Build in 7 Dead and 12 Buried the Debris in VKNCENNES, France, Oct. 19. With seven persons dead and 12 others buried today In the debris of a building which collapsed, samples of the concrete used in the structure have . been sent to Paris for analysis by the municipal laboratory. The disaster bore a close resemblance to the recent tragic collapse of an office building In Prague. The structure which collapsed here was a seven storey apartment building mostly made of concrete and partially occupied. Firemen ,,nd soldiers worked all night trying to reach a dozen persons entombed in the ruins, but today they held little hope any one would be brought out alive.

TORONTO, Oct. 19. Complete approval of the administration of the Post Office Department by Postmaster-General Hon. P. J. Veniot and of his action in respect to the postmas-tership at Simcoe was voiced by W. N. Duncan, Dominion secretary of the Postal Clerks' organization in an interview here today. "In handling the Simcoe postmas-tership Mr. Veniot did exactly as he is required to do as postmaster-general." declared Mr. Duncan, "I have watched with interest the controversy in the press regarding his stand in connection with, that appointment. What has, impressed me most unfavorably is that a portion of the press ts bitter in the denunciation of a policy which would undoubtedly be followed by most business men. "From the' legal aspect the decision not to appoint Whitaker was undoubtedly sound. The only argument used against it is the fact that the rejected applicant was a returned soldier. , "Looking at the situation from a standpoint of a returned man it 'is difficult to see why the fuss is being made. Another returned man is appointed to the position and because of his lesser degree of disability he is not so favorably placed in the' matter of pension as the rejected applicant who receives 100 per cent pension." ' Referring to the postmaster-general himself as an outstanding example of the efficiency which he sought to obtain throughout his department. Mr. Duncan stated: "The postal em-ployes as a whole have no criticism to offer on the administration of the present postmaster-general. He was evidently sincere and open with us in the matter of salary revision and placed the position squarely and fairly before us at our recent convention."

BRITISH FLYER AND HIS GYPSY-MOTH PLANE Make Final Appeal for Patronage of Show jn Aid of Crippled Children A final appeal is being made today to the good people of Ottawa or those who have not already seen the performance of The Chocolate Soldier, to do so tomorrow, Saturday, which is the last day. Apart from the fact that this is the best show of its kind ever put on in the city, there is also the deserving nature of the cause which is to benefit from the proceeds. Ottawa has never failed a worthy undertaking and this week's effort by the Rotary Club is a particularly meritorious one. At noon today there were still a few seats left for the matinee tomorrow and also for the final performance tomorrow night Rotarian Clare Brunton is the manager for the final performance and, along with a host of other willing workers, is doing his utmost to make Saturday night's show a banner affair.

TORONTO, Oct. 19. The appeal of the City of Ottawa from the Judgment of Mr. Justice McEvoy handed down on July 25, 1928, awarding Augustus Switaer $1,350 damages for injuries received while employed by the city was allowed by the second appellate division at Osgcode Hall today. Switzer was employed to drive a team of horses pulling a snow plow through the streets of Ottawa. While engaged at this task his leg was broken when the plow swung sideways and struck ' him. He alleged that this injury was occasioned through the negligence of another man who was guiding the plow. The court held that It could not uphold the judgment finding that Switzer has volunteered to drive the team for the man, Smith, actually employed by the city. In the Judgment it states "we regret that the Workmen's Compensation Board has taken the narrow view that such a volunteer does not come within the provisions of the act."

MacDonald Might Have Conquered Sea and Landed on Some Isolated Spot on Irish or Scotch Coa$t. One Steamer Sighted Flier's Moth Airplane Associated Prtsi Despatch. LONDON, Oct. 19 With every hour that psed today without news of Lieut. Commander H. C. MacDonald, hope for the British airman's safety grew fainter until by mid-afternoon it had almost reached the vanishing point. The chief ground for what hope remained was that he might have conquered the Atlantic with his gypsy moth de Haviland, and may have , landed at some isolated spot on the Irish or Scotch coast, but no word was received of him, although coastguards maintained a close lookout. Apparently the only other chance was that he might have been picked up by some small ocean craft unable to report the fact by wireless. In this connection, the case of Harry Hawker was cited it being recalled (hat it was seven days after the beginning of his flight before It was learned that he had been rescued by a Danish steamer. No one cherished these hopes more strongly than Mrs. MacDonald, the flyer's wife, who was still doing her best to keep up courage, although worn by the long vigil of nearly 43 hours which she has maintained, broken by but a few brief Intervals of fitful sleep. No Sighting of Plane. The liners Paris and Muenchen arriving today, reported good weather at sea and excellent visibility, but no . sighting of the plane was reported by any vessel since the message sent to the Associated Press Wednesday by the Dutch teamer Hardenberg, which caught a glimpse of MacDonald's plane at 7.30 pjn., Eastern Standard Time, 700 miles east of Newfoundland about 7 '.4 hour after the takeoff. Another message reporting the pos sible sighting of MacDonald, was received from the steamship Mirach, but this 'was a full hour before the s'ghtmg by th Hardenberft. The message from thtMirach said that lights had been seen at a great distance "most probably resembling an explosion." The position was far to the west of that given by the Hardenberg, and the suggestion of a disaster seemed Improbable In view of the fact that the plane wu definitely reported going well an hour later. SHIP SIGHTS LIGHTS. v STEAMSHIP MIRACH, Oct 19. The Mirach sighted at 11.30 a.m., Greenwich Meridian time, Wednesday (6.30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time), at lititude 93.03 north, longitude 43.42 west in bearing 130 true at a big distance lights most probably resembling an explosion. The position given by the Mirach is about 550 miles east of Belle Isle, Newfoundland, and along the course which Lieut. Commander H. C. MacDonald was flying when sighted by the steamship Hardenberg at 7.30 p.m., Eastern Standard Time, Wednesday, 150 miles farther east. Since the Hardenberg reported that the airplane passed an hour later than the time given by the Mirach for sighting lights it seems improbable that the Mirach has evidence of a disaster to MacDonald's plane. TOO YOl'NG TO SHARE ANXIETY LONDON, Oct. 19. Ian MacDonald, 5 year old son of Lieut. Commander H. C. MacDonald, happily played in his home today too young to share Jn the general anxiety concerning his father, long overdue on an attempt to fly from Newfoundland. "My Daddy's flying over the sea." the child said. "I am going to see him today." Hi, mother kept vigil throughout the night near the telephone hoping in vain of hearing some definite news of her husband, who is believed by many to have perished. "I heard that my husband was sighted by a steamer, but beyond that I have heard nothing." she said this morning. "Many friends have been ringing me up during the n'rht to ask if I had any news." Friends soon persuaded her to lie down and she obtained the first real sleep she has had for 40 hours. WEATHER REPORTS winds; fair and cool.
