MANILA, P. I.—(By Mail)—Still in doubt as to whether it will be held that the constitutional “dry” amendment applies to the Philippine Islands, local interests are aligning themselves to carry the fight into the legislature, which is committed to consider the question at its regular session, which opens October 16.

CHICAGO, Oct. 20.—The constitutionality and validity of the act creating the federal farm loan banks and federal joint stock la/id banks is upheld in .an opinion5by William Gibbs McAdoo and George W. Wickersham to the American Association of Joint Stock Land Banks, made public at the association’s headquarters here. The former secretary of the treasury and director general of railroads and attorney general under President Taft agree that the law will stand the test of the courts where it is now under fire and assures those interested in the new system of farm credits that they need have no apprehension.
The test case was brought in the United States district court of Kansas City, Mo., by a stockholder of a Missouri trust company to enjoin it from purchasing bonds issued by any of the federal land banks or any of the joint stock land banks. The opinion, which is considered one of the most important rendered by Mr. McAdoo since starting the practice of law, affects holders of securities involving many 'millions of dollars and has specific reference to the tax exemption features of the bonds which are under direct attack.
The act as passed by congress in 1916 and amended in 1918, provides that all bonds, securities and mortgages issued by the federal land banks and joint stock land banks, in accordance with the provisions of the act shall be be exempt from federal, state, municipal and local taxation. The act also exempts the income from such securities.
Attorneys (Wickarsham and McAdoo call attention to the extensive investigation carried on ^by a congressional commitee before the passage of the act. The investigation revealed the average rate of interest on farm loan mortgages in the United States ran from 5.3 percent in New Hampshire to 9 percent and even IO percent in certain southern and western states, and further that these mortgages were rarely of sufficient length of time to permit the

PARIS, Oct. 20—Newspapers here announced that General Mangln of the French army has been nominated as Chief of the Inter-Allied Mission to supervise the evacuation of

The newspapers declare, however, that the nomination has not been confirmed, but it seems probable that this or some other similar post has been offered to him. General Mangin is umlcrstaod not to have made known his decision as yet.

Democrats of the Fifth district by a large lead over his nearest opponent in Saturday’s primary election. Returns practically complete from all the seven counties of the district show that W’eaver is leading Roy Stafford, his nearest opponent, by almost 2,000 plurality.
An unusually light vote was cast throughout the district, and it would seem that of those voting a large majority cast their ballots for Weaver or Stafford, the other candidates failing to muster any strength worth mentioning. Ed Boyle, running as an anti-league candidate, did not receive a single vote in more than half the precincts of the district.
Claude Weaver has served one term in congress, having been elected from the state at large in 1912. He was defeated in the fifth district in 1914 by the late Joe B. Thompson of Pauls Valley. He was appointed postmaster of Oklahoma City early la 1916 and resigned that position to enter the recent campaign to succeed Thompson.
In Saturday's primary Judge J. W. Harreld of Oklahoma City won the Republican nomination over Amos. L. Wilson of Capital Hill. Harreld is an out spoken opponent of the league of nations, which now becomes the issue in the regular election on November 8.
