a former Democrat, denounced Gov. Alfred E. Smith as a betrayer of his partv and praised Herbert Hoover for his attitude toward prohibition He declar-ri the and Republican i parties "have crucified prohibition between them, as Christ was crucified be- tween two thieves He mac? it plain that if the Prohibition party should withdraw in favor of Hooier. it will support the Republican standard bearer, not as a Republican, but because he stands for the eight eenth amendment in its integrity: because he favors strengthening and not weakening the Volstead act: because he is pledged to the enforcement of that act. and because his whole life has shown that his heart is in humanitarian causes." To Discuss Withdrawal.

Whether the Prohibition ticket is to be withdrawn will be decided tomorrow at a meeting of the national committee in Chicago Members of th. committee, it is understood, are divided as to whether the party should throw its strength to Hoover or remain the geld in direct opposition to Smith. In his acceptance last night Edgerton said with reference to the withdrawal proposal: own nlan would be to withdraw' eur electoral ticket only in the States, to the end that there should be no division of the dry forces, who should rise to this emergency by do- feating the wet candidate so emphatic- ally that no similar attempt at nullifi- cation of the Constitution ever will be made again." The straits to which Gov. Smith has been driven. Edgerton said, "must be embarrassing, to say the be- cause they compel him to repudiate his platform and force him to "the almost fantastic expedient of throwing the whole question gack to the States on some sort of sliding-scale arrangement as to alcoholic This, he said, meets the fundamental objections that the Slates themselves expressly surren- dered this right in approving the i eighteenth amendment, that it would violate the whole intention of the i amendment and that it therefore is unconstitutional.

Brewer Eddy, missionary, were among the investors in Western Farm Co. securities, the sales of which by Middle Western financiers have been under investigation by the Federal grand jury here, the Federal authorities have disclosed. President Lowell invested $70,000 and Mr. Eddy $5,000.

A number of prominent Massachusetts residents invested in securities of the Missouri-Kansas Farm the Farm Co. of Massachusetts and the Farmers' Fund of Illinois, the concerns named by United States Attorney Frederick H. Tarr as under investigation. A similar inquiry in the West led to the arrest and conviction of Guy Huston, a Middle Western financier, in Ohio. Mr Tarr explained that the advertised purpose of the companies was to provide funds to be used in loans to farmers in the Middle West, to banks in that section for the benefit of the farmers and to take second mortgages on farms already mortgaged to the Federal Joint Stock Land Bank.

He said the securities taken over by the men in charge of the companies under investigation were worthless security of their own which they turned into the company at full face value, farms which had been foreclosed upon and which were transferred to the company at three or four times all possible value and worthless notes of irresponsible Individuals. The Boston brokerage firm of Jackson Curtis invested $149,700 in the farm securities, it was said, and Cabot Moors, another brokerage firm. $44,000. Others on the list were said to be Frank 3.

He was on bond of $1,500 when the alleged assault is said to have taken place. Police experts claim the bullet taken from at the hospital bore th" barrel marks of Taylor service pistol.

C. HEALTH WORK Answers Efficiency Criticism of His Department. A vigorous defense of the practices and policies of the District Health Department was made today by Dr. Wiltinm C. Fowler, health officer.

In a 50- page reply to the Bureau of Efficiency's criticism of the department made to the Commissioners last Spring in a 318- page report bearing the signature of Dr. Paul Preble, surgeon of the United States Public Health Service. Dr. Fowler offered no apologies for the manner in which the Health Department is administered, and ridiculed the bureau for its elaborate report, which, he said, advocated drastic changes in the health service without proposing adequate remedies for conditions which, it charged, existed. The health officer also pointed out that, many of the changes were recommended bej pause investigators were unfamiliar with ih? practical side of the questions they set out to discuss.

Recommendations Conflict. to instead of 100 per cent increase in appropriations which the bureau rec- I onunended. the health ojf.cer said that i all his department needed Is a modest i increase. In answer to one statement of the bureau concerning a new plan It proposed for a public health organization in Washington. Dr.

Fowler said: "It, is not clearly understood what is meant, by the language used, but, it seemed to be an acknowledgment on the part of the investigator that local conditions are such that he finds it difficult to formulate a constructive plan for public health administration and yet. later he attempts to set up an organization for the District based on standards adopted for other Dr. Fowler pointed out that one section of the he report directed criticism at the statistical methods of his department while in another section this work was held function in a manner which is above the average for a city the size of Washington." The health officer said it was difficult for him to reconcile these conflicting views. Says Milk Is Good. Although the bureau's report took the Health Department to task for failure to make arrests for prostitution.

Dr. Fowler said it is not clothed with that authority. He declared that it is the duty of the Police Department to enforce the vice laws of the District. Replying to the criticism of the method of handling the milk supply In Washington. Dr.

Fowler said that the milk served here compares with the best in the country. Particular attention was called by Dr. Fowler to the bureau's recommendation th it colored nurses be paid $1,500 a year and white nurses, $1,680. He pointed out that thetr duties are Identical and that there is no need for race discrimination. Dr.

Fowler purposely failed to make anv recommendations or comment with re.pect to the several plans Os reorganization suggested by the bureau. This is a subject, he said, which the Commissioners should consider and "It is believed, he added, the present organization Is quite satisfactory if necessary appropriation can be obtained to permit it to function in the manner that it should." RENT PLACE TO MOVE HOUSE OF DETENTION District Commissioners Lease Four- Story Building at 908 Street Southwest. After two unsuccessful attempts to find a new home for the House of Detention the District Commissioners today Anally leased from the Wartlman Construction Co. a four-story apartment building at 908 street southwest, near the Smithsonian Institution. The apartment is occupied, but the tenants, it was said, will be served with notice to vacate before October 15, the date fixed for occupancy by the House of Detention.

The building was leased for one year at a rental of $15,000, but the Commissioners have an option on it for five years thereafter. Alterations, it was said, will be made by the Wardman company at the expense of the District. The Treasury Department some time ago notified the Commissioners they wanted possession of the present Detention Horne at Fifteenth street and Ohio avenue, on the site of the new Department of Commerce Building, by October 1. A 15-day extension is expected to be granted, however. The first building selected as a home for the House of Detention, on street near the Capitol, met congressional objection, and the Commissioners later contracted for a building that was to have been erected at Eighth and streets southwest.
