branches of this society filed re
monstrances with the Owenshoro
organization as to the sale and de
livery of tho pooled crop. When
, the sale, which was only tentative,
-was made ten days ago, it did not
Include' all of the weed pooled with
this organization. In fact tho sales
committee could not dispose of a
large portion of the tobacco at alf.
Portions of Ohio, McLean and Han
cock, as well as certain districts in
Daviess county, were not Included
In tho sale.
' Under the constitution and by
laws of the American Society or
Equity, a -part of a crop of any pro-
' duct that haB been pooled cannot

present it looks like no final sale
has been made, nor can be made
until the entire pledged crop is dis

an extent that there has been a re
monstrance filed against you by tho
poolers of Hancock, McLean 'and
Ohio counties, and in view of this
remonstrance, and the fact that
'sdme of our members have been no

the tobacco in tho pool is not sold,
and that it fs thorpughly under

TORCH FEARED IIV OFFICIALS
London, Feb. 1. Suffragists to
day smashed with stones the glass
cover of ono of the cases In tho jew

where the crown Jewels are kept.
They were arrested and sent to Bow
Street. The attack is in line with
tho militants' expressed purpose to
attack all Government property.
Leaders in Parliament, panic
stricken because of the militant
methods of the suffragists, seldom
venture into the streets now with

also protected night and day by
specially assigned police, who have
been warned to prevent Incendiary

would be kidnapped, Winston
Churchill has four policemen con
stantly on guard outside his house.
He Is not lacking In personal cour
age, but his wife has urged author
ities to take ample precaution
against the suffragists. The Church
Ul baby is invariably followed by
plain clothes men from Scotland
Yard when the nurse takes the child
out for an airing.
Prime Minister Asqulth objects
strongly to having a bodyguard, but,
the police captain is not at all sat
isfied! with the promises of the suf
fragist to 'respect human life. He
has pointed out that some of the
younger and more ardent suffra
gists have openly threatened to
