TELLS ABOUT PLOT
TO "GET" JORDAN
"Ugly Rumors." It Says, Crystallized Into Direct Statements
That Glover-Ailes:SteIlwagen-Bell-Norment Group Were
At Bottom of United States Trust Trouble.
(Continued from First Page.)
agents promised to bring $500,000 in cash the next day if it were
The Treasury Department had deposited $1,000,000 with the
United States Trust Company, based upon collateral furnished by
the other banks, which in turn was guaranteed to them by everything
the trust company owned.
The $500,000 promised by the Munsey agent did not arrive, and
it was not needed, as shown by the subsequent restoration of confi
dence. When the local banking ring awakened the next morning they
found that Jordan was disposed of, but that in his place a greater
competitor had been 'created. The fact that the new competitor
had been established in part through their fear of runs on all the local
banks, as evidenced by their $1,000,000-loan, caused general resent
ment among the Riggs directors.
Finally Secretary McAdoo was advised that all the stories that
tended to reflect upon his administration emanated from the Riggs
National Bank. Yesterday Mr. McAdoo put Charles C. Clover, presi
dent of the bank, on the "mat," but he insisted that he was not
guilty of inspiring the statements.
Then Mr. Ailes was called to the Treasury Department and the
interview satisfied Mr. McAdoo that the representative of the National
City Bank had furnished some of the charges. Mr. McAdoo then told
Ailes that he was extremely weary of the campaign which the Na
tional City has been connected with and that he was determined
to put a stop to it.

Congressman B. P. Harrison of
the Sixth Mississippi district,
offers a solution for the htj;h
cost of living. Take a lesson
from the squirrels, is his advice,
and eat nuts. To show his col-'
leagues that a nut diet is highly
nutritious, Congressman Harri
son has distributed bushels of
Mississippi pecans in the House
Office lluilding, some of them J
almost as large as English wal
nuts. He feels a sort of proprie
tory interest in the Mississippi
pecan industry because the
growers have named their prod
uct the "Pat" Harrison pecan,
as most of them arc grown in
Mr. Harrison's district in the vi
cinity of Gulfport, Miss.

nothing In the law Interferes with the

Tho Indictment of the leaders of the

with tho Colorado strike, the President
explained, was not secured at tho initl

Federal grand jury at Pueblo acted on
Its own responsibility.
Although tho President told callers
that the Department of Justice could
prosecute the Colorado cases and could
assign one of the deputy attorney gen

did not say that he would urgo such
prosecution. His decision in this re
spect Is awaited with Interest in view
of charges that have been made by the
operators that the Administration is
friendly to the United Mine Workers,
because Secretary" of Labor Wilson was
at one time connected with that organ
