pitcher, who did the twirling for the

New York. July 7. Officials of the
Munson line admitted today that they
had been trying unsuccessfully for
two davs to establish radio communi
cation with the liner Callao due here
next Sunday from Buenos Aires and
Rio de Janeiro.
Recent reports of pirates operat
ing off the American coast were
scouthed by officials of the line, who
added that it was possible atmos
pheric conditions, or disabling of the
Callao's wireless were responsible for
failure to raise her. The Callao own

Company otticials received a report
from the steamer Munaldro today that
while hat ship was on her way from
Baltimore to Boston the second of
ficer observed an unknown ship ap
proach and then turn away. The ship
looked like a yacht, the officer said.
Reports that the navy department was
broadcasting a warning to vessels
to keep a lookout for the mysterious
craft were denied in Washington.
S. J Hilburn, representing the Ki-
wanis Club, Howell Davis represent
ing the Rotary Club, H M. deMont-
mollin representing the Business
Men's Association and Dr. L, W.
Warren, representing the Wholesale
Grocer's Association, will present Pa
latka's opposition to the proposed
equalization of freight rates when
the matter comes up in Atlanta next
Monday before railway executives and
members of the Interstate Com
merce Commission.
Dr. L. W. Warren left yesterday m
his car. and after stopping in At
lanta will go on to Maryland to spend
a couple of months. The other mem
bers of the committee will leave Sat
urday night or Simday.
It is understood that delegations
will be sent from Sanford, DeLand,
Tampa, Jacksonville and other ports
affected by the proposed change in
rates. The schedules as submitted to
the local wholesalers indicates tnat
the Duroose of the railroads is to
eliminate water basing rates entirely,
as was done along the eastern shore
of Maryland and New Jersey. If this
is done it will mean the elimination
of Palatka's advantages as a who's-
sale distribution point.
Tampa To Send Delegates
Tampa, July 7. A committee of
Tampa wholesale merchants will at
tend a hearing before the Interstate
Commerce Commission at Atlanta
Monday in an effort to head off ap
plication of the "long and short" haul
traffic clause. Enforcement of this
clause, it is pointed out, would make
it imoossible for Tampa wholesalers
to compete with points north of it
and within the state.

This together with assertions by
two women witnesses that Mr. Kaber
had told them she wanted her hus
band murdered were the high points
in the state s testimony today.
Mrs. Mary J. Wade, an alleged me
dium, testified that Mrs. Kaber on
the iast cf several visits to her said:
"I want you to try to get rid of
Dan Kaber for me."
Asked by Mrs. Wade how she was
to go about it Mrs. Kaber was al
leged to have replied. "I want you
to kill him, anyway to get rid of
him. The man I love has no money,
only brains, and Mr. Kaber has $50,-

Steamer Passengers
Had Thrilling Time
Crossing the Pond
(Ily Associated Prtlt)
Rome Italy, July 7. Forty
three days at sea with an insurbor-
dinate crew gave a thrilling experi
ence to the passengers of the steam
ship Pocahontas which arrived at
Naples Monday. The vessel's engines
were damaged three times, all the
dining room spoons were stolen and
for a time in mid-Atlantic the liner
was able to make only seven or eight
miles an hour. Just before entering
Naples the assistant engineer, whose
name is understood to be James Pen-
dergast, of Boston, jumped over
board and was lost.
One of the passengers in describ
ing his experience saw:
'We left New York with what
seemed to be an orderly crew but
when the steamer was outside the
port we had our first trouble and
were forced to lay over at Boston five

the imports and the exports of the
United States.
Callinir attention that the foreign
trade of the United States fell down
$1,188,255,449 last July to $527,378,
825 in May, 1921, the report says:
"Certainly the natural process is
preferrable to the infected knife of
interested surgeons which by select

those to .destroy can reap the harv

American Valuation
Dealing with the plan for Ameri
can valuation of imports the report
"First among the subtile covert in
famies that mask their way through
this bill is the proposal to change
the base for ad valorem duties from
the actual price paid for them when
purchased by the importer to a spec
ulative, indefinite, uncertain, nebu
lous opinion reached by an appraiser
hidden in the recesses or a custom
house, consulting if he is industri
ous and cannot be bewildered, as to
what is the alleged wholesale prices
of comparable and competitive prod
ucts of the United States, or in de
cost production of Canada' that w.e
av: to impose upon tne cooii.i laoor
if India, China and Japan"
Declares Commercial Wan
Asserting that it is proposed by
this bill "to, declare a savage com
mercial war upon the whole human
family," the democratic minority
says it is doubtful "if in the history
of political affairs a measure so ir
redeemably and universally vicious
has ever been submitted to the law
making power of a civilized society."
"Its adoption," the report goes on
to say, "will be establishment by the
United States of an economic boy
cott aeainst the civilized world. The
countries that fought with us in the
late war will be victims of its sav
agery in exactly the same degree as
those who fought against us, while
at the same time it will oppress pre
viously our own people: who would
indeed be its chief victims were it
not that nations reduced to extreme-
ty of distress though the most de
structive war ever waged will suf
fer still more severely from its op
eration because all efforts to restore
their industrial life to normal con
ditions will be grievously impeded, if
not wholly frustrated, by the drastic
restrictions on trade which it imposes."
Charging that the bill was pre
pared outside of the ways and means
committee, the minority report says
the manner of its making up "can
not be defended."
Charge Trickery
"Its last minute changes whis
pered to a favored few," the report
continues, "are in keeping with the
intrigue, secrecy and robbery, which
inspired its covert subtleties, its con
cealed indirections; framed its newly
invented schedules, aasb its (com
plex and compounded rates, and fixed
its unaseertainable and incalculable
duties, with the trickery which has
transformed schedules, hidden jokers,
transplanted items, changed its no
menclature and made it impossible
to compare it with any of its prede
"Cunning has made difficult, if not
impossible, a comparison by printing
it in deadly parallel with previous
law. This conspiracy has required
since last December, or six months,
to hatch its monstrosity."
The democrats say in their report
that they vainly sought to have the
committee refer the bill to the trea
taining information as to the prob
able amount of revenue to be de
rived as well as the economic effect
upon the country. They' also say that
they sought to obtain action through
the committee from which the rates
and classifications in the bill might
te compared with the Underwood
and Payne-Aldrich laws.
"It seems," the report says, "that
the majority prefer not to giye in
formation to the house touching the
provisions of this bill and this is a
very natural position for them to
take, sine eif the membership of the
house, or the country, really knew
the meaning and effect of its. classi
fications, rates and general provis
ions, they would repudiate it in the
.nimtnnA fashion.!
