Burlington News, The (Newspaper) - January 23, 1923, Burlington, North Carolina THE BURLINGTON NEWS Devoted to Upbuilding Alamance County and to the Best of Our People. Vol. No. 40 Burlington, N. C., Tuesday, January No. 78 GERMANY AGAIN ENTERS PROTEST AGAINST FRENCH Being Sent to French, British, Italian and Belgian Governments of Protest. HUNDRED THOUSAND MINERS OUT IN RUHR Industrial Leaders Again Issue Proclamation Asking Work- ers Not to Deliver Coal. Washington, Jan. again protested to''the world against the French and Belgian occupation of the Ruhr. Formal notes being delivered to the French, British, Ital- ian and Belgian governments pro- testing against the action of occupa- tion authorities in forcing German officials in the affected regions to work against the Berlin government, the United Press is informed today. A specific complaint was lodged aganist inter-allied Rhineiand com- mission, which directs German of- ficials to c'ollect customs and other revenue and turn the rrioney over to the forces of occupation. ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND MEN NOW ON STRIKE. Essen, 'Jan. hundred thousand Kuhr miners are on strike1 against the French occupation and arrest of mine owners, it is an- nounced. German industrial leaders have again issued a- proclamation calling upon the workers to refuse to de- liver coal to the invaders at the hour when Fritz Thyssen and six other coal mine owners were to go to trial.. Thyssen is ill. More and more West Phaliari min- ------en..joined the ritriiers.. .Six.Stinncs nines closed down'in the vicinity of Essen because French refused to workers' intercession on behalf of the sick industrial leader, who it is reported, will be sentenced to six months in jail. GERMANY NOTIFIES ALLIES SHE CANNOT PAY. Berlin, Jan. 23. Germany no- tified the allies that it is doubtful if she will be nay any more reparations for v .'resent, owing to the econo; aos resulting from French vation of Ruhr. A totr.l of about pounds of tobacco was piled on the Burling- ton market today, both the open j market and co-operatives being busy caring for the rush. Local warehousemen say they ex- pect the. increase in business of the Paris, Jan. evidence that the social and economic structure of Europe is tottering on its founda- tions was displayed last night in the magnificent salons at the Louvre when international society gathered at the most brilliant fete'of many months, in honor.of Franco-Ameri- can- unity. From President and Mme. Mille- rand and Marshal and Mme. Joffre down, the high folks of France ming- led with the cream of trans-Atlantic society, with gowns and jewels pre- senting a dazzling pageant. Judging from the new models dis- played, fashions have entered on a "glitter period." Steel and cut glass beads, tinsel sequins, silver, gold am! even platinum were used to accentu- ate the iridescence the gowns, from which the sharp points of light of gems flashed all over the ballroom. A feature of the evening was the number of complaints from Ameri- can and French women about the in- sistence of dressmakers on long skirts. Dozens of gowns were min- ed by being trod on in the course of the modern dances. Many of the stylish American wom- en affirmed that if the Parisian dressmakers continue the long styles they will buy their gowns in New York. Whereas a year ago black was still a favorite color, last night not a single black dress was noted. Aj majority of the beautiful gowns were in bright amber, crys- tal and orchid. The jewel head dress has come bark to its 'own, no fewer than 30 tiaras being counted in the gather- ing. The value of the pearls, sap- phires and diamonds worn could not even be guessed at. One gown of pale green silk, which created a sensation, had a tightly wound bodice almost entirely com- posed" of ropes of gems. INTlQEITHE MtilEIIMITTOlZ New York, Jan. of a 12-mile limit for the three-mile limit now drawn by international law has been recommended to Wash- ington as a means of combatting the rum fleet off the New Jersey coast. This recommendation, it was said ,ouay, was an outgrowth of Ihe con- ference Saturday between Anting Collector of the Port Stuart and pro- hibition enforcement authorities. The theory that extension-of thc customs limit would check smuggling was based, prohibition agents said, oil the belief that the small boa'lii run- ning liquor from the rum fleet to shove would find it dangerous to ply far from shore. I Officials admitted they did not ex- aect an immediate ruling on this point, becjaufce the supreme coifrt now was considering a similar ques- tion in conection with the search of foreign vessels' bringing liquor" into American waters. Officials were concerned today over 'the discovery off 'Sandy Hook' of the cruiser "J. J." She was be-1 ieved to be carrying a cargo of i liquor formerly in the hold of the British sloop Grace and'Edna, which] was captured last May, eight miles off thc New Jersey coast and later released on protest of the British government. The Grace and Edna, which was put under a bond, was found lo be unseaworthy and her cargo said to be worth was transferred to thc cruiser I. I. to be taken to St. Pierce and Mique- lon.
