REVENGE NOW HELD
MOTIVE FOR MURDER
Possession of a Liberty bond and
gold coins formerly carried by John
Lacovaro. the ?2-year-old grocer,
who was shot and killed In his store
at 4? F street northwest. Wednesday
night, was not the motive of the
murder. Headquarters Detectives
Rdward J Kelley and Arthur B.
Scrivener learned yesterday.
The bond and coins were deposited
In a safe vault of a local bank by
the murdered man about a week
before his death it was learned
from the widow The widow did not
knew in which bank the valuables
had been deposited. That the man
was murdered by an enemy appears
to be the only remaining clue on
which the police are working, despite
the assertion of the widow
that he had no enemies.

SAYS U. S. MUSTT
Owners Are Dominated
By Greed, and Restrict
Supply of Necessity to
Br HEP. rLORIAlV LANPUHT, '
I In my opinion, the question of 1
cheaper coal Is one of the grave j
problems before Congress. Winter
Is approaching. We are In the
midst of a financial depression.
Thousands of working men are Idle
| and any legislation that will reI
lieve this situation should receive
the immediate attention of Congress.
Early in the present session of
Congress I Introduced a resolution
I providing that the Federal Trade
! Commission make a survey of all
the coal mines and coal fields in
the United States and its possession*
for the purpose of determin- (
lng their present value. When that
report is mad* to Congress, I in1
tend to use it as the basis for a
i bill providing for government ownership.
I am in hopes that the
I committee will report It favorably
during the next session of Congress.
While 1 am aware that our counj
try may not yet be ready to accept
i the idea of complete government
ownership, and manv speeches will
be made and reams of paper used
to light and to ridicule the government
ownership idea, it is coming
as surely a? night follows day.
And if, through my resolution, the
question can be placed before the
American people and the coming of ,
cheaper coal hastened. I shall feel | ,
amply repaid for whatever criticism ,
ia directed at me.
Coal la one of our prln^ social (
necessities. It not only needed
to provide power.for transportation j
and manufacturing, but fuel to furnish
household heat Is one of the i.
largest items in the budgets of i
home owners in all the Northern 1
States. Fuel Is such a large factor J

Courteous Bandit !
Gives Victim $1 |
For Carfare Home '
"You will need something to eat;,
and carfare to get home." a negro ,
gunman said to Claude M. Rocco, \
1138 Sixth street northwest, as he |
returned him $1 after holding him |
up and robbing him of $10 at Fourth
and K streets northwest shortly be- .
fore 9 o'clock last evening.
Rocco was standing on the south- ,
west corner when approached by the
negro, who pointed a gun In his ,
face and demanded that he throw .
his wallet on the ground. After ,
learning where Rocco resided, the
bandit remarked that "it would be
a shame to make you walk home, so |
I'll give you carfare and the price,
of a meal." ]'
The victim accepted the money 11
and headed for the Sixth precinct J

ON HABEAS CORPUS
Henry B. Martin, who was convicted
with David Lamar, alleged
"wolf of Wall Street," of violating
the Sherman law In connection with
fomenting of strikes In munition
plants during the war and was sentenced
to serve a year in Jail, was
released yesterday on a writ of [
habeas corpus. Justice William
Hits of the District Supreme Court, |
fixed bond at S7.000 and set September
15 as date for hearing on
The writ alleges that Martin, who 1
was originally ordered to a New <
Jersey jail to serve out his sentence, <
which was later commuted by Pres- ' i
ldent Harding to eight months, is 1
being illegally detained, the specific
allegation being that that portion i
of the Sherman law under whith he j .
was convicted was repealed while his j
appeal was pending and Is therefore .
null and void. As the government s 1
contract with the New Jersey Jail ex- i!
pired before Martin was committed,
the Department of Justice orderedJ
him to serve out his sentence in the j
Washington asylum and jail.
REPORTS TO HOUSE
AMENDED RAIL BILL
The Winslow railroad bill was reported
to the House yesterday by
the House Interstate and Foreign
Commerce Committee, with amendments
designed to expedite the settlement
of claims of the railroads
and the government.
The bill was amended so as to
require the railroads to file their
claims against the Federal government
in full within one year after
the enactment of the bill.
Another amendment added by the
committee provides that no payments
or allowances shall be made
to any carrier on account of the
so-called inefficiency of labor during
the period of Federal control.
A third amendment adopted by
the House committee provides that
after the Federal government has
paid the claim of any railroad, the
carrier shall be forever barred from
settling up further claims.
The railroad bill will be?voteu
upon by the House next Monday or
Tuesday under a special rule.

consideration of the fifty-eight com- ?
mittee amendments that were
adopted, and started to make an ex- ?
planatlon of his share in a similar '
occurrence Thursday night. 1
Mr. Fordney had been reported to l
have said in the House that a statement
made by Representative James I
F. Byrnes, Democrat. South Caro- I
lina. was a "lie." The statement 1
referred to by the Ways and Means |

charge that the Republicans had
framed the tax revision bill to re- i
lieve wealthy contributors to the |
Republican campaign fund of 1920, (
and had placed the burden upon (

said Mr. Fordney yesterday. "I <

"You also said that I knew it was
false when I made the statement," i ^
interrupted Mr. Byrnes.
Yes. I said that." replied Mr. |
Fordney. "I repeat that when you ;
said we had framed the tax bill to j
relieve the contributors to the Re-,
publican campaign fund, you knew
what you were saying was false.' |<
"Well. I repeat that under this I
'bill you are trying to relieve the j 1
1 tax burdens of the corporations

'campaign fund, and in doing so youn
, are carrying out a pledge." hotly,
1 retorted Byrnes. .
"That statement is false and you ,
I know it." shouted Chairman Ford-|(

Byrnes ftfcsats "LI*."
"That is a lie," cried Byrnes.
The House wan thrown into a
turmoil. Representative Chandler, I

his seat and started across the aisle

Then both the disputants apolo- I
I gized to the House and withdrew
their remarks. This closed the ?n- \
Amendment* to Tax Bill.
The Ways and Means Committee;
during the day voted flfty-elght additional
changes in the tax bill. !
These included elimination of the
tax on proprietary medicines, reduc- ,

House Committee Tables Bill
To Let Him Take Office and
Keep Army Rank.
The administration plan to have i
Ma J. Gen Leonard Wood made governor
general of the Philippines re- j
celved a serious setback yesterday '
when the House Military Affairs
(Committee tabled the Senate bill
which would have allowed Gen. ,
Wood to accept the post and at the
same time retain his active army
?tatua. The committee held such
action would establish a dangerous
Almost simultaneously, it was revealed
at the White House that |
Gen. Wood js averse to becoming
governor general unless he can remain
an active army officer. It was .
because of his expressed attitude on
this score that the White House re- '
quested the special legislation.
The White House apparently was
unaware of the developments in ;
the House committee when the an- !
nouncement was made that Gen.
Wood's nomination would go for- !
ward as soon as he had formally reported
on hit* recent investigation
in the Philippines, and after the
special act had been passed by Congress.
Whether Wood will consent to
taking the post after being trans- i
ferred to the inactive list cannot,
of course, be learned here.
Tabling of the bill makes it certain
the meahure will aot come to'
a vote. unless the committee
can be persuaded to reconsider. It
is known that the administration
is very anxious to have Wood accept
and It is not unlikely that it
will bring pressure on the committee.
