Tho popular supposition ia that the sheriff is get- jtlng InformaTibn which may lead to ' establishment of tho missing man's . whereabouts.

It was a generally accepted foregone conclusion among, wheat traders that the market today would sink below $1 a bushel and no special flurry took place.

Philadelphia, July 11. —Umpire ErneBt Qulgley was hit by a foul tip and knocked unconscious In the BOO- ond Inning pt the first game between Philadelphia and Cincinnati here this afternoon. Htforts to revive him failed and ho was carried across the field to the clubhouse by players, and taken to a hospital. Qulgley waa hit on the left «Me of the head by a foul from the hat of Caveney, Cincinnati shortstop. The game was delayed until Qulgley was carried off the field and Bass Umpire Pfirman went behind ths hat Qulgley recovered consciousness on ths way to the hospital where he was taken. Physicians at the hospital stated that as Xnrar would fee taken to 'determine ik* exteat at kirn Injury, no member of a ship's crew was Involved. Although aomo exports In maritime law Indicated opposite opinions, spokesmen for tho board wore emphatic In their view that such Interference waa not within tho authority of the ship commander. Officials of the board declare! that the regulations promulgated by Chairman I-asker last October, requiring "dry operation" of government pas- songer and cargo ships and forbidding the possession of liquor by the ship's offUers and members of tho crow themselves, would be enforced aa lieie- 1 tofore. A Now Angle. I Meantime, another angle of the ship: liquor situation has become a subject i of speculation as a result of a do- 1 cislou of tho treasury to prosecute | ship liquor violations by foreign lines 1 under tho tariff law Instead of the 1 Volstead act. The point baa been! ralaed among customs officials as to what penalties should be applied when liquor illogully brought Into American waters 1 B confiscated. . Sia -.tlon 593 (D), of the tariff law provides In addition to the prohibition against smuggling that any merchandise brought into the United States "contrary to Utw" shall be forfeited "and the offender shall be fined in any sum not exceeding $5,000 nor less than ?00, or be Imprisoned for any tliuu not exceeding two years, or both." ' Ktmio government attorneys have argued that tills provision Is mandatory and that once the department or Justice lnstltutos proceedings under It, the court can do no other than fine or imprison the offender, tf found guilty. On tho other hand, other authorities bellovo tho section) could bo read to compel only tho forfeiture of tho seined merchandise and that trial Judges will not consider It necessary to Invoke other penaltlus.
