Prices are beginning to turn downward in various parts of the country, but the slump has not yet gathered momentum sufficient to af fect purchases for immediate use, ac cording to reports to the department of justiec. Attorney General Palmer, asked how soon results could be expected from the campaign to reduce the cost of living, said all the government wanted was a fair chance to show what could be done to take the artificial inflation out of the market. He said officials were well pleased with the success so far attained and that cumulative re- suiLs were expected when congress enacts amendments to the law by which criminal penalties can be imposed on profiteers and hoarders. "We hope the public will begin to reap the benefit of our efforts before long," Mr. Palmer said. "For instance, we are making progress in obtaining promises from shoe manufacturers as to fixing a limit beyond which prices Khali not go." Propaganda which is apparently n-wide, on the part of shopkeepers seeking to induce purchases now on the pretext that prices will be materially higher next season, was condemned by Mr. Palmer as one certain thing which would make prices continue rising if heeded. His attention was called to advertisements in various papers stating straw hats, clothing and other articles should be bought before next year's prices become effective. "It is' very unfortunate that some merchants take that attitude, and wo have been studying the situation," the attorney general said, "Extensive purchases now, reducing the supply and increasing the demand, would make their predictions come true, whereas wo hope for a normal price level if the people do not stampede Uto a buying hysteria." food-contr- natio- Inquiry Unveils Shipyard Graft Seattle.

El Paso, Texas. Intervention in Mexico and the adoption of the league of nations, "to make the world safe for American citizens," were urged by Governor W. p. Hobby of Texas in a speech made at a dinner given in his honor by friends here. The statement was made in the presence of Mexican Consul General An- .dres G. Garcia and other Mexican of ficials who were guests at the dinner. "Our glorious victory in the great war has made the world safe for democracy," Governor Hobby said. "Now we must have Intervention in Mexico and a league of nations to assure that safety to every place else in the world. The lives and property of American citizens should be protected in Mexico and all over the world. "I glory that our nation had its big share in bringing victory for the allied cause and that the men who wear its uniform did so much to increase the respect for our flag in foreign lands. Now is the time for us to demand that proper respect be paid to American citizens all over the world," Governor Hobby concluded. . Major-GenerEobert L. Howzee, newly appointed commander of the El Paso military district, and Brigadier-GenerJames B. Erwin, retiring commander of the district, were both given ovations when they started speaking.
