Attempts Also Made to Blow Up
Homes of Judge in Boston and
Mayor of Cleveland, Ohio
ALL WITHIN THE SAME HOUR
Radical Agitators Apparently - Try
to Inaugurate Another Reign of
Terror Throughout the
Washington, June 2.-Attempts on
the life of Attorney General Palmer
were m'ade tonight through the plant- 1
ing of a bomb which wrecked the 1
lower portion of the Palmer residence t
in the fashionable northwest portion 4
(f Washington. Mr. Palmer and all
members of the family escaped with
out injury, being on the second floor
at the time of the explosion.
One man thought to be the person
who planted the bomb, was blown to I
bits by the force of the explosion.'
Police believed 'that the bomb explod
ed prematurely before it could be
placed under the house.
The bomb, the police said, was con
tained in a suit case filled with cloth
ing. Portions of the clothing of the
man killed, it was said, indicated that
he was roughly clad.
The force of the explosion was suf
ficient to shatter the window glass in
residences for a block on each side
of the Palmer home. The residence
of Senator Swanson of Virginia, next
door to that of the Attorney General,
was not badly damaged.
Police picked up along with bits of
clothing of the man killed a copy of
"Plain Words," a radical publication.
This, in connection with the r.eport of
an explosion at the home of Justice
Albert F. Hayden in Boston caused
authorities to fear another wide
spread bomb plot similar to that
which radicals attempted to carry
through about a month ago.
Radical agitators tonight apparent
ly attempted to inaugurate another
reign of terror throughout the country
through the planting of. infernal ma
chines near the residences of promi
Within a few minutes after ex
plosion of a bomb at the door of At
torney General Palmer's residence
here, with the killing of one man,
evidently ' the person planting the
bomb, reports were received from Bos
ton and Cleveland of similar attempts.
The explosion evidently was inter
nal, as there was little exterior dam
age. The interior was badly wrecked.
All windows were broken. There was
no fire. The police said that if a
homb had been use l it probably was
done as a result. of Judge layden's
decisions in the recent Roxbury riot

Washington, June 3.-Secretary

rative Purchase Society of Russia.

Secretary Bake rwas asked by Rep
'esentative Anthony, Republican of
Kansas, if the War Department was
folding huge quantities of canned,
frozen and cured meats because the
ackers had protested against " dump
ng it on the market and causing meat
)rices to fall to a lower level."
The secretary emphatically answer
!d that the packers had not protested
against such a course. The department
onsulted the packers, the secretary
said, as it does other manufacturers
nd producers when it has a large
7uantity of goods to dispose of, to as
:ertain whether the market could ab
sorb them. The packers adivsed that
the meat be sold abroad because it
was unsuited for domestic consump
tion, being packed in too large con
tainers or cured differently than the
American people want it cured.

IN DOUBLE TRAGEDY
Woman Swears Crowd of Farmers
UPSETS FIRST REPORTS
Just After Tragedy It Was Claimed
Hogg and Marley Killed
Aiken, June 2.-Apparently new
light has been thrown upon the mys
terious killing of Jim Hogg and H. D.
Marley, the two well known planters
in the Allendale section last week.
The report first sent out broadcast
over the country that Hogg was shot
by Marley, and, then while Hogg was
wounded and lying on the grounid] that
he shot and killed Marley, has been
completely upset, according to the
testimony of Carrie Stanley, at Aiken
before Hon. Robert L. Gunter, the so
licitor of the circuit.
From the evidence of Carrie Stan
ley, who is separated frc.;n her hus
band and has been Marley's house
keeper, it appears that a crowd of
white farmers of the Allendale section
shot Marley to death after coaxing
him out of his house with the prom
ise of protecting him on his way to
surrender to the sheriff.
Carrie Stanley, appeared before So
licitor Gunter here and has sworn
that a crowd of men, consisting of
Herman Lee, John Dunbar, George D.
Kirkland, Henry D. Best, Paul Black,
Hughes Reeves and Buck Lewis, came
up to the Marley place after the
shooting of Hogg by Marley, and after
getting him to come out on the
ground, John Dunbar shot him twice
with a pump gun which he (Dunbar)
had taken from the hands of Buck
According to the report it appears
that a gathering of ten farmers were
attending a fish catch and dinner at
Cohen's Bluff. Jim Hogg and Buck
Lewis, whose home is on the Georgia
side of the river near Brier Creek,
went down to the home of H. D. Mar
ley, about three-quarters of a mile
from Cohen's Bluff, to pay a visit. As
Hlogg reached the Marley gate he was
attacked by Marley's dog, and being
afraid of a bad bite from the animal,
is alleged to have shot and killed it
forthwith. Marley, seeing the dead
dog, and Hogg with his gun in his
hand, came out of his home and is
said to have fired one load of shot in
the breast of llogg, who fell face
down. on the ground. Lewis then
dodged behind a tree until 1larley en
tered his home, when he ran to the
other menibers of the fishing party
and told 'hem of the shooting.
Marley Fatally Shot.
It is testified by Carrie Stanley
further that the whole party, some
eight in number, then hastened to the
Marley home, and after coaxing him
outside shot him to death.
'lh af! hiavits of each member of
the party conflict with the woman's
'tate'ent, the party claiming that

Would Form Dozen or More 'Great
UNDER FEDERAL CONTROL
Sufficiently Attractive for Private I
Capital and Afford Protection to
Washington, June 3.-Director Gen
eral Hines tlined to the American a
Short Line Railroad Association Con- li
vention here today his plan for a ar- e
manent solution of the railroad prob- n
1em, under which the railroads would (
be consolidated into from twelve to y
twenty great systems, under govern- *c
ment regulation sufficiently definite as 'I
to attract private capital and afford t
protection to the weaker roads. U
The only alternatie to such regu- d
laion, he declared, would be public r
ovwnership, for under any other plan v
private management would be doomed d
to ultimate failure. t
The director general .said that un- 1
der the plan of consolidr.tion each sys
tem must be made up of some of the I
stronger roads and some of the weaker C
ones, be of a highly competitive char- I
acter and have government represen
tation on its directorate.
A workable basis on which a proper
return on the valuation of the rail- I
road properties could be ascertained t
was essential, Mr. Hines declared, I
adding that excess earnings should be I
divided between the railroads and the
government. Earnings put back in
the properties, he asserted, should not r
form the basis for an increased valua
tion. Prompt action by Congress in
providing for the future of the rail
roads was necessary, in Mr. Hines'
view, as the.. present situation causes I
the public to suffer.

Rantzau Says Huns Decline to Agree

Says He Will Do What is Right
and Await the
London, June 2.-Count von Brock
dorff-Rantzau, when asked by a rep
resentative of the European Press
Bureau whether he believed the Ger
man counter proposals would lead to
1egotiations, according to a Berlin dis
patch to the Wireless Press, said he
had cured himself of the habit of
believing in such things. The chairman
of the delegation added:
"I will do what I think right and
"According to an article in the
Temps on Wednesday, our opponents
seem to assume that the German
counter proposals go beyond the lim

us a discussion. If this article inter

Asked whether he considered un
bridgeable the gulf between the Al
lied demands and the German officers,
the count replied:
"This question itself is based on a
contreversy of principles on which no
agreement can be reached. It is pos
sible to b' of different opinions about
the esources of Germany, but there
exists no agreement about the ques
tion whether this nation is to do pen
ance as a criminal or to fulfill obli
gations as a party to the treaty.
Can Still Say "No."
"If in October, 1918, an avowal of
its aims had been laid before the Ger
man nation for its acceptance instead
of a preliminary treaty regarding
the foundation of peace, it would have
continued to fight. At present Ger
many can not fight any more, but she
can still say 'no.' "
After declaring that if he were in
the position 6f President Wilson, Pre
mier Clemencean or Premier Lloyd
George he would be afraid of "assum
ing an equality to God," Count von
"At the moment when the moral
cloak of penal justice is removed f'rom
the peace document, it became bear
able for Germany to a certain extent
that we, as the vanquished must make
