HOW SMUGGLERS GET DRUGS
INTO U. S.
New York.—America ia being flood-
«d with the greatest 'quantity of illi-
cit drugs in history.
Where do they come from? How?
The peril of these narcotics, breed-
ing crime and breaking down the na-
tion’s health gnd mentality, is driving
federal and city governments to ex-
treme measures to check and blot out
Smuggling of narcotics is as syste-
matic and as well organized on busi-
ness lines as the smuggling of
liquor. Like the latter, there is no
“international ring,” no single “drug
king,” but the big smugglers work in
concert for tneir mutual protection.
In 1920 opium legally imported
amounted to 1,100,009 pounds from
England, and 94,409 pounds from
Smuggled opium and its deriva-
tives, morphine and heroin, in most
cases originate as manufactured ar-
ticles in England, after tha poppy
leaves are brought from China and
India. Cocaine comes, from South
America,' most of it via Europe; it
Is derived from the coca erythroxlon
The free city of Danzig and cities
in Belgium and Italy- are also .smug-
gling centers. (
Synethic cocaine is the newest me-
nace. Dr. Carleton Simon, special
deputy police commissioner of New
York, says an agent he sent abroad,
found that German chemsts have
made it commercially possible to
manufacture cocaine as a coal-tar
“The drug, the m<^t popular among
addicts, is being smuggled into
America in amounts far in excess of
natural production,” says Dr. Simon.
A great deal of crude opium is
brought into this country, manufac-
tured into morphine and heroin, and
then shipped to Canadh or Mexico.
All track of it having thus been lost,
it is smuggled back into this country.
Viewing with the big smugglers,
who bring in"lrunks and bags filled
with drugs, are those who use forg-
ed permits to withdraw narcotics in
bulk from government bond.
This is an important source of con-
traband drugs. In Detroit a forged
permit for 1600 ounces of gum opium
was seized recently.
Thrown Off Ships
Paralleling liquor Bmugling, 10,000
cans •£ cocaine were thrown off a
steamer approaching New York har-
bor, and seized by revenue officers
before a confederate’s launch could
Ships frequently throw off water-
proof bags each containing 100
ounces of illicit drugs.
^.Government agents, arrested a
Brooklyn carrier who hqd a blue
package, made by a_ London chemist
for the Italian trail. It ’ contained
3 1-2 ounces of cocaine. , A hundred
such packages had been smuggled in-
to the country in bulk, totaling 3500
In the last few months $25,000
worth of narcotics were seized on a
British freighter, a great quantity of
cocaine was found in olive oil barrels
on a French steamer, a steward on
the steamer Finland was arrested
and $40,000 worth of cocaine seized,
and $150,000 worth of cocaine was
confiscated on a Italian steamer.
The biggest raid on smugglers oc-
curred in September when govern-
ment agents boarded the Greek
steamer, King Alexander in New
York harbor. Five sailors were shot
and 327 prisoners taken of whom 2
officers, 9 sailors and a dock guard
were convicted and sent to prison.
Dr. Simon estimated $120,000 worth
of illicit drugs are sold daily in the
street market of New York.
“Nearly every ship coming into New
York has a consignment of drugs
which sailors or passengers are
bringing ia for smugglers,” he said.

the entire house.

• HARBOR TALK.
Mors lonesome than a lonesome ship at ;
The sailing moon rICa* beautifully by.
Blown from such purple harbors aa may
In unlmaglneO corners of the sky.
She Is not careless where she gases down
On Sleepy streets the sliver sllepce Alla.
But thoughtful ever of a little town,
And foollah-fond of little wooded bills
Baa-folk are given so to t'.'llng tales,
I think the moon, when she puts In at
May spin a story where she rests her
And there her talk of short-lands that
Is nil of glimmering meadows, ghostly
still. ’ y

HOTEL HAS OWN NEWSPAPER
Decidedly Novel Journalistic Enter-
prise Recently Launched by Large
New York Hostelry.
A novel journalistic enterprise tons
been started by a large New York
hotel, which. Issues a dolly newspaper
for the benefit of Its patrons. It Is
a four-page,sheet, and a copy of It Is
placed under the door of each of,the
rooms In the hotel every afternoon at
flvep-the psychological hour when the
guest returns from matinee or shop-
ping and drops Into a chair for half
an hour’s rest before dressing for din-
ner. Its editor Is a woman wbo lias
had , considerable experience In the
editorial and circulation departments
of various American newspapers and
publishing houses. , She keeps her
finger on every news detail In connec-
tion with the hotel, and has secured
the willing help of the employees In
making her acquainted with every-
thing of Interest that is going on.
But the most notable feature of the
paper Is Its Interviews. The editor
Interviews two prominent guests every
day of the week. Among those from
whom ahe has extracted good “copy”
have been explorers from Borneo, Im-
porters from Hong Kong, deep-sea
dlvere from South America, diplomat-
ists from France, church dignitaries
from Italy, princes from India, writers,
sculptors, dry goods merchants, office-
holders and office seekers. She has
often had to provide herself with the
assistance of two Interpreters, for
sometimes her victim can speak only
French or German or Italian or Span-
ish or Russian or Chinese or Japanese.
Solves Lathe-Work Problem*.
A very comprehensive machine-shop
rule, now on the market In New York,
makes possible the solution of many
problems In connection with lathe
work, without the lengthy calculations
that would be otherwise necessary.
From graduations on one face of the
rule, which is about 1*4 in. wide, there
can be read: the number of revolutions
In proportion to the diameter of the
bar find the' cutting and grinding
speed; the time required to turn or
grind a bar in proportion to Its length
and rate of feed and revolution; the
vqjome of metal removed In proportion
to the depth of a cut, the rate of the
feed- and Its speed; and the area
machined In proportion to the rate
of the feed and the cutting speed. On
the other fnce of the rule are very
complete Inch and metric graduations,
so that It can be used as an ordinary
measuring rule.—Popular Mechanics
Superstitions of the Airman.
It has been noticed lately at the
London nlr stations that one express
pilot before ascending walks along the
same strip of grass to reach his
machine and moves round the tall of It
always In the same particular way.
This, be says, Is his Invocation to the
god of chance.
Instances are coming to light of the
superstitions of the airman. The other
day, Just before a machine was to
leave, a notice board standing near It
fell. A friend laughiugly said to the
pilot “You’re In for a rough trip.”
The airman was Indignant. “Don’t
say a thing like that.” he exclaimed,
replacing the board again. Telling the
•tale afterward the pilot said: “I was
not a bit surprised when not long
after T had started my engine sud-
denly gave trouble and forced me to
lend.”—From the Continental Edition
#f the London Mail.
