VOLUME LVIIi, NUMBER 46. NEWBERRY, S. C., FRIDAY, JUNE 9, 1922. TWICE A WEEK, $2.00 A YEAR
EXPECT RAPID DEVELOPMENTS'
v IN THE WAR FRAUD CASES
Warrant Issued for Head Atlanta
Lumber Co., Charged With
* Defrauding Governnment
Washington, June 5.?The war
frauds inquiry of the department of
justice developed a mystery today
concerning the identity of the person
or persons who on Saturday swore
- out a warrant for the arrest of John
Lewis Phillips, chairman of the Republican
state committee of Georgia,
charging fraud in execution of war
nAnfvc.Atc
v. \jn t: av. co.
Commissioner Isaac R. Hitt, who
on Saturday issued the warrant, declined
today to say who made the
complaint on which the warrant was
issued. It became known, however,
that four persons appeared at Commissioner
Hitt's office late Saturday
and that the warrant was issued soon
thereafter.
At the department of justice surprise
was expressed today. "The department
of justice is working in the
dark," one high official said. "We
know nothing about it.''
Likewise the district attorney's office
professed no knowledge, and declared
that the warrant was not issued
at ito request.
The warrant for the arrest of
Phillips, it was learned, is in the
hands of United States Marshal Edgar
C. Snyder, and in case .Phillips is
not located in Washington it will be
turned over to the Unitd States marshal
in whatever district Phillips is
to be found. His home is in Georgia
and he is said to have an office in
Philadelphia.
* * xv _ "j-T- - i. . JJ.J
A pnase 01 tne case tnai, auueu lv
the mysterv is that despite the department
uf justice's demial of knowledge
of the matter, the United States
marshal's office was notified on Saturday
to send two deputy marshals
up to the department of justice prepared
to act in connection with the
Phillips warrant.
Washington, June 5.?Issuance of
a warrant for the arrest of J. L. Phillips,
chairman of the^republican state
committee for Georgia, charging^
fraud in the execution of war contracts,
led to expectation of further
rapid developments today as the special
grand jury investigating war
fraud cases entered the second week
of its deliberations. Phillips, as a
member of the firm of Phillips and
Stevens, shortly after the armistice
> obtained a contract from the government,
as the agent of a conference of
lumber dealers, to dispose of surplus
lumber left from cantonment and
camp construction and other war developments.
Proceedings of the grand jury
which so far as can be learned has
yea to hand down its first indictment,
have been veiled in secrecy, and United
States Commissioer Hitt, who is
* i J*. mi ; T
sued the warrant ior rnnaps, uivond
confirming reports that it had
been issued has refused to discuss the
case. It has been generally reported,
\ however, that lumber contracts have
been the first to be considered by the
grand jury.
/ In a recent speech in the house,
Representative Woodruff, Republican
Michigan, asserted that government
aud?tors had filed report? with the
department of justice in September,
1921, showing that Phillipsp and Stevens
still owed the government under
their contract more than $1,850,000.
While the contract called for the disposal
of spruce, pine, hemlock and
^ -* lnm hpv onlv, Mr. Woodruff said.
A 411 7 the
report showed the firm had sold
more than 50 varieties, including
much valuable hardwoods.
Will Demand Hearing
Philadelphia,, June 5.?John Lewis
Phillips, Georgia Republican state
chairman, for whom a warrana has
been i.\-ued in Washington, charging
. conspiracy to defraud the government
through war cotracts, said here
today he would return to Washington
at once to demand a hearing.
' Ph illips is a member of the lumber
firm of Phillips and Stevens of Atlanta.
"I know absolutely nothing
about this," he said as he made hasty
preparations to leave for Washing"*
^-1 T 1 1 . .

He spent the week-end with his
family at Bryn Mawr, near here,
where his daughters are attending
school.

BAKHMETEFF MUST
SOON LEAVE THE U. SJ
Recognition of Russian Ambassador ,
Terminated
Washington, June 5.?Recognition !
of Boris Bakhmeteff, as Russian am- 1
bassador to the United States, con-.
tinueil despite the collapse five years
ago of the Kerensky government
! which appointed him, will cei se after
June oO. Mr. Bakhmetefif has been
notified of this decision of the American
government in a letter from Sec-'
retary Hughes, replying to commun- '
jication from the ambassador in which
the latter, stating that his chief func- 1
tion in recent months of liquidating
preperty claims growing out of the
war was now about completed, has
offered to retire should the Washing-1
ton government desire it. i
i The correspondence, published to-1
day, was dated late in April, after
Senator Borah had ..challenged the
ambassador's status, long the subject
of controversy, in connection with attempts
to hail him before a senate
, committee, and in his communication
Mr. Bakhmeteff states that the "renewed
discussion" of the subject had
led him to question whether hi.; con,
tinuance as ambassador would "serve
the best interests of my country and
the convenience of the United
States." !
Both this letter and the secretary's
reply, however, antedate the climax
of the senate discussion of the subject
during: which charges were pro-!
duced by Senator Borah of misuse of
Russian embassv funds, of \Vhich.
i
, cognizance is taken in an exchange
1 of letters between Secretary Hughes
and Secretary Mellon of the treasury
, department made public with the oth!
er correspondence. Giving a detailed
statement of the embassy's expenditures,
Mr. Mellon declared that the
?187,000,000 advanced by the United
?,ates was "used solely for the purchase
of obligations of the Russian
; government in accordance with the
' Liberty loan acts."
i Of the $62,000,000 of this total
j left "for expenditure" in this coun;
try after transfer of $125,0o0.000
i to the account of the Russian finance
' ministers, the treasury secretary
; said, a balance of only $10,000,000
remained as a Dart of the total of
I $50,000,000 which the embassy had
: on deposit in the United States at the
j time of the fall of the Kerensky gov!
ernment. Expenditure of th:s
: amount on deposit, together with
: sums added through sale of Russian
j property in this country, for liquidations
has been under the supervision
j of state and treasury officials, Mr.
Mellon said, giving the total of liquidations
effected at approximately
] $102,000,000. To permit the nego
; tiations regarding these to be carried
to completion. Secretary Hughes
! informed Mr. Bakhmeteff that, upon
his retirement, Ser^e Ughet, linan!
cial attache of the embassy, would
j continue to enjoy a diplomatic status.

life by drowning here this afternoon.
Jennings, who is a veteran of the
World war, lost h:i? balance in shifting
positions in a canoe with
two who were with him on Lake
Whalom, which lies between Camp
Devans and this city. Up to a lata
hour tor.ight the police had failed to
recovcr his body, although the lake
was dragged during the afternoon
and night. Jennings, according to
the story told by the other two soldiers
to the police, refused to heed
their repeated warnings and startd
to change positions, falling over
board. Being unable to swim he sank
out of sight before his companions
could make, any attempt to save him. j
The other men, B. R. Sherman and j
C. S. Merkie, who are members of the J
same regiment, are broken up over |
the tragedy. Calling for"help, Sherman
and Markle paddled to the Leo- j
minster side of the lake and notified j
the Leominster, Fitchburg and army !
police of the accident. All three re- j
sponded, the two men being placed j
under arrest by the latter body pend-1
ing the outcome of the investigation.

(UNIONS HELD LIABLE
E ; 6Y SUPREME COURT
0' Labor Organization \menable to
j Provisions of Sherman AntiTrust
Law
I Washington, June 5.?Deciding the
j celebrated Coronado coal case, the
i isupreme rourt today held that labor
organisations although unincorporated,
are amenable to the Sherman
anti-trust act, and that under it such
' organization may be prosecuted for
. restraint of interstate commerce. The
court also held that labor unions are
fj
suable. Chief Justice Taft in an'
nouncing the decision did not indi^
cate any dissent.
J ' The case which presented the questions
passed upon by the court was an
appeal by the United States Mine
Workers of America, district No. 21
of that organgization and the offic,
ers, 27 local unions in that district
y and their officers and 65 individuals,
, some of the latter not members of
any union, from a decision by the
, United States district court of Arkansas,
approved by the circuit court
E of appeals holding them guilty of violating
the Sherman anti-trust act
LS during the coal mine strikes in Arn
kansas in 1914, and imposing damage
es of $200,000, which were trebled
e under the anti-trust law.

!_ eration of Labor, while expressing
>r concern over the sweeping provisions
r_ of the decision, declined to author?
ize any statement in advance of a
careful study of the findings of the
|c court. They were particularly in0
terested in that section of the opin^
ion which held that the treasury of
ie labor organization# could be Jwpld Iiam
ble for damages caused 'by labor
? unions.
The "Coronado case" was the nam {
^ applied to one of the most famoui
y proceedings to reach the supreme
re court within recent years. Its fame
>s arose not only from the long period
it remained on the docket but from
3_ its importance, involving as it did the
question 'of whether organzed labor
as represented in the United Mine
r Workers of America could be prosecuted
under the Sherman anti-trust
law for restraint of interstate comt
' merce resulting from strikes.
D The Coronado and Associated Coal
companies of Arkansas instituted in \
le the United States Mine worKers naa
;e unlawfully conspired to suppress noni
union competition, and that the deis
struction of the property had been re2
sorted to, with attendant restraint of
interstate commerce, to accomplish
id that end. The decision of the court
is dismissing the suit was set aside by
[y the United States circuit court of
ie appeals for the Eighth circuit, and
i in the same court, on second trial,
| before a different federal judge, the
jury found that the destruction of
E the mine property was due to a conspiracy
to prevent the mining of coal
1- by non-union labor, and had resulted
id in a restraint of interstate commerce.
>f The jury placed actual damages at
$200,000, which were trebled by the
