Washington, Nov. 20. Georgia's
grand old lady." Mrs.W. H. Pelton
first' woman senator, was the star mem
ber of the cast in the opening scene to
day of the convening of congress.
iter eftoTt to be sworn in and sit for
day was forced', over until tomorrow
but in all other respects she enjoyed a1
thrilling debut as the congressional cur.
torn -was raised. And there was good
prospect ' tonight that success . would
crown, her. hope of taking' the-oath to
morrow and becoming, the first woman
senator in fact as well es name, if only
for a day.- -
The 87 year old woman, a "breath of
'lavender and lace from "the old south"
today -was all but an actual senator,
occupying a' seat on the -senate floor fpr
hours, where she was cheered by the gal
lery crowds and was the object or con
gratulations by senators, representatives
and officials who ' thronged about her in
She was feted-, also .by crowds . about
the senate and was photographed and
dined. Tired, but happy tpnight, she
was prepared to renew tomorrow her
plea for. an official place in the sen
Of all senators, sast present or future.
Mrs. Pelton was the first to annear to
day on the floor. , Abccompanied by form
er Senator Hoke Smith of Georgia and
wearing a black bonnet, fur coat and
white, gloves, she arrived more than an
hour before the noon convening hour,
Soon she was "at l home," hanging up
her bonnet and coat in the democratic
cloak . room. Shaking out her silk dress
and lact collar, she was given an ab-1
sent' senator's chair alongside - Senator i
Harris, democrat,. Georgia, and , was the
cynosure of all eyes and the loadstone
of arriving senators who- hastened to
shake her hand and offer best wishes.
Galiery crowds, composed of women
overflowing int'o the halls, cheered and
applauded the white haired woman as,
shortly , before the senate convened,, she
was escorted to an ante-room to receive
a hugh bouquet of 87 red roses. Again the
cfowd broke into a noisy deminstration
as she returned to her seat, where Bhe
remained through the brief session
watching each move Intently through her
geld rimmed spectacles. Clapped in her
lap rolled in brown, paper she held her
commission as a senator, received two
months ago by appointment upon the
death of Senator Thomas E. Watson.
All in the senate paid tribute to the
first woman senator. She was received
by Vice President Coolidge and met near
ly all senators, republicans and democrts,
as well as officials and pages.
No disappointment Was manifested by
Mrs., Pelton .when told that, no new sen
ators could be sworn in today, she appar
ently grasping quickly what many vet
eran senate leaders. for several davs had
forgotten, that the. senate, had to be of
ficially notified of the deaui ot a sena
tor1 before his successor, could be re
ceived. , And . in accordance with un
broken precedent, the senate -adjourn-'
ed immediately out of " respect when in
formed 'of ,the death of Senator' Wat

new senators until tomorrow. BesBes
Mrs. Pelton, awaiting to b. esworn in was
her successor, Walter. F. George, elected
last November 7' and several others.,
. (A few senators, however, were said to
be disposed to object to., the programme
because .of the precedent it . might" set
and ' senate leaders reiterated that Mrs.
Felton could, not claim pay or mileage
allowances." It yas'. repeated that objec

Washington, Nov. 20. Governor Tar-j
kc-r of Louisiana denied in a statement
tonight that the Ku Klux Klan -had re
duced the sovereign state of Louisiana
to the ' vassalage of the Invisible em
pire" as stated in some newspaper., des
patches from Baton Rous.
There had never been the remotest
idea on the part of any one in Loui
siana, he declared, of appealing - to the
federal government "to go into the
state of Louisiana aud take over the
administration of government."
Activities of the Ku Klux Klan formed
the subject of a White House conference
today between President Harding Attor
ney General Daugherty ind Governor
rarker and Attorney General Coco of
Louisiana. The conference was. at the
request of the governor, who seeks fed
eral co-oporation in curbing alleged In
terstate operations of the klan.
Before goin; to the White House the
Louisiana governor and attorney general
had a Ions conference with William J.

GRAND JCBT HEABIXO .
Somerville, N. J. Nov. 20. fBy the
A. P.) The ease which special Prose
cutor Wilbur A. Mott, has woven out
the mystery surrounding the murders of
Rev. Edward Wheeler Hall and Mrs.
Eleanor R, Mills had its first official air
ing today, when 12 persons told their
stories to the Somerset . county grand
Mr. Mott expects tomorrow to offer the
evidence of ten or more witnesses. Three
women are sitting on the grand jury.
The proceedings today were well guard
ed. A squad of state troops patrolled the
court house and surrounding grounds.
They established a "dead line" around the
Jury room, a conference room on the
ground floor with French windows reach
ing almost to the ground, and beyond it
no one was permitted.
Women, scores of them, came early.
They hung over the dark railed balocny
which is built inside the court house on
the second floor, in the' vain hope that
Mrs. Hall, widow of the slain minister,
or Mrs. Jane Gibson, who raises pigs
and has become the most important wit
ness in the case, wouta appear.
' At the, opening session Mr. Mott, as
sisted by Azariah M. Beekman, prosecut-
tor of Somerset county, outlined to tbe
grand jury the salient features of the
case. . ...
A. J. Cardinal a New Brunswick news
paperman, was called to tell, how the
bodies of the murdered pair lay when he
first saw. them stretched out under a
crab-apple tree on ihe lonely ' Phillips
farm. As Cardinal ' testified, his ges
tudes could be seen through the low win
dows. His story. was to. the effect that
he picked up letters and cards about the
body and held them until the police ar
rived. Dr. E. L. Lobiein, a veterinarian.
succeeded him on the stand.
By that time, Mott has discovered that
his witnesses-coul dbe seen from -without.
.' So the position - of. the -stand -was
changed ' and later the oartains were
drawn.- Dr. Lofclein. an acquaintance of
Mr;- Hall.'- was the first to Identify the
tody of the dead man as that of the min
ister. .'.--' ' - - .--.
- A stir was caused when' Pearl Bahiner,
who was with Raymond Schneider when
the bodies were found, came through' an
underground passage from the jail to the
grand jury room. She was on the-stand
about 15 minutes.- - - -'
In the hail as she -emerged from-the
jury room, she met Schneider for. tbe first
time since- she became a star witness
agalnhlm on a charge of -attacking her.
She nodded, but Schneider, sitting be
tween two detectives, did. not acknowl
edge the greeting. - .'
Dr. William - P. Long. - the- Somerset
county coroner's physician who failed to
report that Mrs. Mills' throat had been
cut, was the next called. He ' fidgeted
with-the door knob- as he entered but one
before the jurors hi sstqry-was soon told
. While the' grand jury was- in session a
New Brunswick 'newspaper printed a let
ter from 'Mrs. George Si pel," the wife" of
a farmer of . Mlddlebush." which brought
a new character Into the-, already over
crowded case The ' letter said her'- hus

murders, but 'declared that Mrs. Gibson,
