motion for tho dismissal ot tho mur
der Indictment agalpst Waltor 8.

It is thought tho indictment will be
quashed. This Is based upon tho
statement of Mr. Mills that tho Dls
trlct Attorney has been unable to get
any evldonce to disprove the state
ment of Ward that ho shot in self

Acting Health Chief Takes
Issue With Prof. Brues Re
garding 1923 Epidemic.
Dr. Frank T. Monaghan, Acting
Commissioner of Health for Now York
City, docs not agree with Professor
Charles T. Brues us to tho probability
of a serious outbreak or Infantile
paralysis In this country next summer.
Professor 13 riles, beforo the American
Association for the Advancement of
Science, being held tn Boston, yester
day said tho dlscaso recurs In waves
and epidemics or unusual severity, ap
pear every second and seventh year.
that tho epidemic spreads rapidly and
declines quickly, but leaves a trail
of paralyzed people. He fears a re
currence next summer.
This to Dr. Brues, as It is essen
tially a summer disease, Indicates It
Is borne by some insect, perhapu a
flea or fly, or from some migrating
animal. Dr. Brues suspects It Is the
rat, and cites that In Now York City
the epidemic was most sovero in dis
tricts where rats were most numerous,
near tho water front and sewers.
"With all duo respect to Professor
Bruus," said Dr. Monaghan to-day,
there Is no evidence, obtainablo here
that Infantile paralysis in due next
summer. Thcso things do come In
cycles as he says. We may havo It
next year. We know of no means of
preventing its recurrence, because
the method of contagion Is not yet
known. Should, 'It coma, however,

to handlo It better than before, bo-

reason to foar it, especially this com

Impression mado by tho Harding,
Hughes proposal for a revival of tho
International Bankers' Committee
Idea will bo carefully weighed by
Ftcnch opinion. After many months
of clamoring for American help the
French will pause before thoy reject
concrete suggestion which is so
carefully worded that' It Involves no
responsibility on tho part or any or
tho Governments to accept the
recommendations of the commission
when onco mado.
Governments need not bind them
selves in advance," said Mr. Hughes
In his New Haven speech, "to accept
the recommendations, but they can at
least mako possible such an inquiry
with their npprot-al and free tho men
who may represent their country in
such a commission from any respon
sibility to foreign offices and from any
duty to obey political instructions.1
If Governments saw fit to reject the
recommendations upon which such a
body agreed, they would be frco to do
so, but they would havo tho advan
tage of Impartial advice and of an en
lightened public opinion. Peoples
would bo Informed tho qucstlbn would
be rescued from assertion and coun

Tho foregoing quotation lifts the
curtain on what has been happening
ever since tho first hints were, given
that diplomatic moves of prime Impor
tance were being mado by America In
the European situation It shows
why the Borah resolution for an eco
nomlc conference was regarded us
muddying tho waters at this time. It
shows that tho American Government
was driving hard for the appo'ot
tnent of a commission of bankers to
meet in International conference, and
that France was privately arguing
