America, he said, was much Inter- ested In the Near Eastern settlement, and its observers would attend the meetings and Join In tho discussions, but were not authorized to be mem- bers of commissions, to sign reports, or to vote on tho decisions. America's participation in the I,au-sann- o conference Is hailed with grati- fication by the Italian Government and people.

'VIOLATED THEIR DUTY' Rules Their Indictments Savor of Prejudice in Censure of Foreman. Never in the history of tho Fedeial Courts of this district has a Grand Jury been subjected to such a scathing denunciation ns Judge Rufus Foster admlnlsteted to the Grand Jury In- vestigating Prohibition scandals In the Criminal Branch of the United States District Court y. At the close of a flftcen-mlnut- e letturo he summarily dismissed the Jury, but reconsidered at tho request of Assistant District Attorney Clarko and ordered that any indictments which have been found or will bo found shall bo ropor.tcd to him at It o'clock Thursday morning, when the dismissal will take effect. A sensational featurp of the attack ofJtbe Judge was his statement that indictments that may be handed up will carry a taint of prejudice In tho Judgment of veteran practitioners In the Federal Courts this means that ten weeks' work of the Prohibition Grand Jury has been practically nulll-fle- d because tho defence has already been furnished by the court with a motive to move for tho dismissal of any lndlctmont on tho ground that It was found by a prejudiced body, Tho offence committed by the Grand Jury, of which W. de S. Trcn-hol- Secretary of tho Retail Dry Goods Assoolatlon, No. 130 West 42d Street, Is foreman, was tho giving out for publication In last Saturday's newspapers of a copy of a letter writ- ten by tho foreman to Judge Foster and handed to him, sealed, on Oct. 27. 'The letter carried a bitter criticism of former Prohibition Director Ralph A. Day nnd former Prohibition En- forcement Ofncer John 8. Parsons, nnd also carried the Intimation that there wns something suspicious about the fact that tho letter, mailed on Oct. 27, did not reach Secretary of the Tieasury Slellon until after Nov. 1, on which date tho resignations of Day and Parsons were accepted. In the letter Sir. Trenholm stated that the Grand Jury believed that the resigna- tions should havo been held up so that tho men under Investigation could be kept under supervision until an Invcs tlgatlon then under way was con- cluded. Judge Foster refused to comment on tho publication of the lottcr on Saturday or wince, until ho brought up tho matter by Issuing an order on his arrival at the Federal Building at It o'clock for the Grand Jury fore-po- it to him In court as Boon as possi- ble.

Pleads With Members to Forget Local Politics and Remember That Subsidy Is Vital to All Parts of Land Commercial Supremacy Affects All, and Measure Is for Economy. WASHINGTON, Nov. 21. In a fighting message President Harding to- day dnrod tho ioes of tho Administration Ship Subsidy Bill to assume the responsibility for defeating It. Declaring that no proposition placed before Congress ever met \a moro resoluta hostility,\ tho President, In a monsago dellvcrod 'in pet sou the extraordinary session of Congress, challenged his oppononta to meet tho Issue fairly. Tho President devoted virtually alt of his message to a vigorous ad- vocacy of tbo subsidy, mentioning only ono other national problem addi- tional relief for agriculture. This and other questions will he dealt with his message to tho regular session, which will meet on Cec. 4. \This problem cannot longer he lgnorod,\ aald Mr. Harding. \Its at- tempted solution cannot longer be postponed. Tho failure ot Congress to act decisively will bo no less disastrous than adverso action.\ Carrying the fight with aggressiveness to tho enemy's camp, Mr. Hard- ing said he challenged \overy insinuation of fnvorcd interests nnd the en- richment of tho special few at tho expense of the public Treasury. I am, first of all, appealing to save tho Treasury,\ In a fervent plea that America. \ again be raised to a position of cml ntneo among the maritime nations of tho world, and striking directly at tho opposition, tho President said one three courses Is open: \Tbo flrrt Is constructive enact the pending bill, under which, I firm- ly believe, nn American morcliant marine, privately owned and privately operated, but serving nil tbo people and always avallablo to tho Govern- ment In any cmergoncy, may be es- tablished and maintained,\ he said. \Tho second Is obstructive con- tinue Government operation and at- tending Government losses, and dis- courage private enter, rlso by Govern- ment competition, under which losses are met by tho Public Treasury, nnd wltr.e the cuntlnu .. hsc mid de- terioration until tho colossal failure ends In sheer exhaustion. \The third In destructive Involving, tho sacrifice of our ships abroad scrapping nf them at home, tno surrender of our aspirations and t. confession of our Impotenco to tho world In general and our humiliation before the competing world In par. tlcular. \A choice among tho three Is It. Is unbellevnblo that th American people or the Congr.'ss which expresses their power' will con- sent to surrender nnd destruction. It equally unbelievable that our people and tho Congress which translates their wishes Into action will longer sustain a progrum of obstruction and attending losses to tho Treasury.\ Mr. Harding said tho bill was not subsidy, but \Government aid,\ In the same sense as the Government provides aid in building Inland water- ways in and Improving roadH to aid In the growth of commerce. Tho Presi dent emphatically declared that since tho Government nlds Industry by tariffs, and reclamation, water power development, agtlculturc and mar- keting by other legislation, It should not hesitate to aid shipping. \Hut call It 'subsidy,' \ he said, \since there nin those who prefer lo appeal to mistaken prejudice 'rather Full Text of WARIUXGTON, Xov.
