The skeleton of Billy Dansey, the two-arid-a-ha!f-yoar-old prize baby of this town, who disappeared six weeks ago, was found to-day. George Eckhardt, a hunter, canie across it in the scrub pine of Folsom Swamp while hunting. The spot where it was found is three miles south of the home of Hercules Dansey, the boy's father, and is remote from any dwelling. It was obviously impossible for the child to have wandered that far by himself unseen. The authorities believe he was lured away and mur- : dered. Eckhardt, gun in hand, was pushing ils way through the bushy scrub pint.? j if the swamp, his eye on the alert for ame, when he . tuinbi ?d over the ton.

' I 4Death Ring' Plot of Heds' Found Here Fund of $68,000 (with? ered and Plans Made To Buy Arms for Revolt of Labor, Police Say Five Men Chosen To Kill Officials I. W. W. and Union of Russian Workers In? volved in Plan. It Is Said j Federal and police officials an j nounced yesterday that they liad ? discovered a plot by agitators of ; the I. W. W. and the Union of : Russian Workers of the United States and Canada secretly to arm ; a body of "Red Guards" in New ; York with a view to starting" an ? open revolt against the prosecution of Bolsheviki, Communists and anarchists. I* was said that evi? dence had been obtained that a fund ' of $G8,0(iO had been raised with which to purchase arms. Five extreme radicals, whose names are known, according to offi ! cials, were pppomted to act as a "ring of death." whose duty it \ would be to assassinate persons , active in the running down and . prosecution of anarchists. It wa? said the first persons marked for attack were Alexander I. Rorlre. Assistant District Attorney, who has been presenting criminal anarchy cases in the extraordinary grand jury; Detective Sergeant ?lames J. Gegan, of the police bomb squad, and Charles F. Scully, of the De? partment of Justice's bureau of information. Clew Obtained in Speech A clew to the plot was obtained in ' Boston through a speech made there ; : by a former editor of a Russian news ! paper published in New York. The i ? speaker is alleged to have told his j fellow radicals they might soon ex- j pect reprisals by the "Reds--" on their ? prosecutors. Investigation led to evi- I dence that preparations for open re-! vott had been begun, that a fund of ! $68,000 had been raised through con- ! tributions from I. W. \V. and Union of Russian Workers' organizations, and that three I. W. W.'s and two Russians I were appointed a "ring of death" to ; assassinate officials. It was said that some of the evi dence obtained by the authorities was revealed through the seizure of papers taker, in the Lusk Legislative Commit- j tee's raids on the Communist party's headquarters two weeks ago. Archi? bald E. Stevenson, special counsel for the committee, and Samuel E. Berger, Deputy Attorney General, said they had heard of the plot, but'declared they knew no details. Steps Taken to Buy Arms "The plot was sufficiently advanced to warrant us in taking drastic meas- : ures to stop it," said an official. "We : found the fund already collected and steps taken to purchase arms'' It. wa.- not stated whethei there had ; been arrests in connection with the plot or whether arrests v-er'e to lie expected. One hundred thousand dollars was | contributed by "parlor Bolsheviki" to radical organizations, according to Mr. j Berger. He said this had been dis? covered by an examination of books taken in the Lusk raids. "We have found many persons prom- ! inent in social and religious circles : are Bolsheviki to the bottom of their hearts," ?aid Mr. Berger.

Signed Checks for SI 1.000 Mr. Rorke said that inquiring into the activities of the Communist party it had been found that Mis. Stokes had made out checks to an aggregate j of $11,000, but the payee had not been \ designated, It was to ask Mrs. Stokes concerning these checks that she was called before the jurors he said. Other witnesses called were Dr. ' ?Morris Zuker. of Brooklyn, former : editor of a radical pub ?cation, Bella Gitlow, sister of Benjamin Gitlow, for- : mer Socialist Assemblyman, who was held for the grand jury in $15,000 bail, and Benjamin D. Kaplan executive secretary of the Jewish Protective So? ciety, who was questioned concerning members of the society who are al? leged to telong to other organizations.

Avert Imminent Famine AH Stocks To Be Allocated by U. S. ?Price To Be Advanced to 14c Pound, Retail, Un? der Government Plan WASHINGTON, Nov. 21.?President ? Wilson, by executive order, to-day re? vived the war-time powers of the Food ! Administration and placed the govern? ment again in control of the nation's food supply, ?n an effort to avert a sugar famine. Full powers of Food Administrator were conferred by the President on Attorney General Palmer. Although at present Mr. Palmer in? tends to exercise his authority only in relieving the sugar shortage and will t.ot put into operation all the ma? chinery permitted under the Presi ; dent's order, he is prepared to exert the full pressure of all the broad power in him to meet similar short - I ages in other food supplies. Mr. Palmer's staff will begin imme? diately to build up a sugar distrib? uting system which will allocate all sugar stocks in the country. It. will provide an equitable system of dis? tributing supplies and will defeat any concentration or hoarding, officials said. Plans, tentatively decided upon, pro? vide for ?ncreasinc the price of all sugar, excepting the Louisiana crop, for which a prie.? of seventeen cents [already has beer fixed, to twelve cents a pound, wholesale, or fourteen cents a pound retail. Expect (o Avert Famine Through this increase new sources of supply are expected to be opened. With assurances that a i'air margin of profit, said to be about S1.54 a hun? dred pounds, would be allowed, sugar refiners are ready to enter the Cuban markets and purchase all available stocks, it was stated. Thus, officials believe, the increased price will avert a shortage which threatens to become a famine-during the next .sixty da;,-?,. Immediate action also is contem? plated in curtailing the consumption of sugar by manufacturers whose prod? ucts are not regarded as essential food. This will apply particularly to sol't drink dealers and candy manu? facturers. The abnormal increase of sales of these articles and the conse? quent heavy drain on the sugar sup? plies is traceable, officials declaimed* to the enforcement of prohibition. Although it has not been definitely determined, the cut in sugar supplies to these classes of trade probably will be about <>0 per cent. Officials indi? cated that, if the exigencies of the sit? uation demanded, they would reduce the allowance to soft drink and candy plants to 25 per cent of their normal requirements. To Enter Cuban Market Arrangements have been completed, sub'??ct to changing conditions of the sugar situation, whereby beet and cane sugar refiners will enter the Cuban mai'Kcts immediately. The depart? ment, however, will exact a signed agreement with firms entering that trade to consign all of their purchases to tills country. This will mean that American dealers will get a large pro? portion of th>? 1000,000 tons, of raw sugar yet available in Cuba, officials said. Normal consumption of sugar in the United States is about 4,000 000 tons. In other years about 3.000,000 tons were imported from tin? Cuban fields, to which was addeil the average pro? duction of approximately 1 000 000 tons of native grown, hut officials wen? alarmed lest European dealers should continue their heavy purchases, already in excess ??f 1000 00(1 tons in Cuban j markets, and deprive this country of ?he full supply it usua'ly gets there. The refiners who have agreed to go into the Cuban trade have been urged, it : was said, to use all haste, that the ' stocks may not be exhausted before this nation is supplied. The danger of a sugar famine will be j greatest next month, it was said, as stocks are rapidly being depleted and j ;n many sections already exhausted > and the necessity for garnering all \ available supplies from outside be comes daily more urgent. Thirty-eight Chicago Men Held as Sugar Profiteers CHICAGO. Nov. 21.- Thirty-eighi members of fourteen wholesale sugar ', firms were arrested to-day on Federa' : warrants charging profiteering in vio- ; lation of the Lever food control act. They were charged with exacting an exorbitant price, or conspiracy to ob? tain an excess price ror sug r The dealers are alleged Lo Ti ave sold sugar at prices ranging from 15 to 2?"i cents a pound, Although tne Illinois fair price com? mittee has ceased quoting a maxi? mum price on sugar. Major A. A. Prague, its chairman, to-day warned that control of sugar prices had not ceased and that jobbers still wire re? stricted to a profit of :li of a cent a pound and retailers to lVs cents.

A Hitchcock Says President Will Be Forced to Yield on Treaty; Lodge to Force Issue for 1920 I British Prince I Visits Grave Of Roosevelt Edward Lays Wreath on Mound of Ex-President Who Told Him of Ad? ventures 9 Years Ago The Prince of Wales luid a wreath on the grave of Theodore Roosevelt yes? terday. He went to Oyster Hay and the ! quiet cemetery facing the Sound as ? the representative of a great empire : paying tribute to a name that shines ?n the history of this land. But per? haps he also went for the sake of his ; own memory of a mighty hunter who, fresh from adventure in the African ? wilderness, told thrilling stories, to a little boy in Windsor Castle nine years ago. The prince had just attained his present estate through the death of : Edward VII when Colonel Roosevelt visited the royal family and spun tre ' mendous tales for him and his young? er brothers and sisters. A recollec . tion of that time may have come to the prince -is he her.; bare-headed be? fore the simple granite stone and placed a great circle of English Ivy and palm upon the grave.

Then they turned and the prince was hurried down the s'ope to be enveloped again in the rush and c'atter and cheering that have charac-j lerized his every day helfe. He had paused for a moment in his swift dash from the Columbia Yacht Club to Oyster Pay to plant an English vllr ,r Central Park Mall, only a few slops from the tree his grandfather planted sixty years ago. When the prince loft the cemetery he was whisked away, surrounded by a cloud of motorcycle policemen, to Pip? ing Rock Country Club, where he j lunched and planted another tree. Then the long lin?? of machines carrying his I party returned to the city, where, as | soon as the weary young man was safely aboard the Renown, he played host to a thousand boys and girls from the city's high schools. Guest at Reception in Armors This over, the prince dressed for I the dinner given last night in his honor by the Pilgrims, came ashore at 0.45, was rushed through the park to the Plaza: loft there at 9 and visited the Hippodrome and, heavy-eyed but! still smiling, went to the reception at the 7th Regimer.t Armory given in his iiono'- by Rodman Wanamaker. At 0 this morning he begins his last day here with an investiture aboard the Renown. Al 2 o'clock this afternoon the Renown sails for Halifax and home. R?sistent, as the prince appears, the strain of receiving the uproa/ious hos? pitality that the city gives him seemed j to have told on him yesterday, At 10 in flu? morning, wb.?n he came; ashore, lie was rat: er pale and his eye- '. lids drooped from lack of sleep. Hut. he waved his hat as gayly as ever to; the crowd that has made it a custom to gather each morning on the drive and cheer him as he climbs into his automobile and dashes away. Auto Nearly Runs Into Crowd Yesterday morning, when the Meet of autos swung into Seventy-ninth Street, several women broke through the police lines and ran toward the' center of the streit. The princes car and escorting motorcycles had to veer to keep from running them down. The city's guest was attired yester? day in the same civilian costume that he wore Wednesday long gray over? coat, black derby, bluish gray suit with ?i faint check, cordovan shoes and a blue and red striped tie.

Democrats Plan to Depose Hitchcock as Party Leader Xctv York Tribuvn | Washington Bureau WASHINGTON, Nov. 21.?A con? certed movement is under way among the Democratic members of the Sen? ate, as a result of the defeat of the peace treaty, to remove Senator Gil bert M. Hitchcock, of Nebraska, as minority leader. The White House, it is reliably re? ported, will join in the campaign against the leadership of Senator ! Hitchcock, and will support Senator Oscar W. Underwood, of Alabama, for the position when the Democratic Sen I ators meet in caucus about December I 1 to .select a p< .nanent leader. The place was held by Senator Thomas S. Martin, of Virginia, who died last j week. Opposition to the leadership of Sen ; ator Hitchcock is so strong that the Nebraska Senator to-day held a long conference with Senators who are friendly toward him. Plans were dis i cussed for securing the post of per? manent leader for Mr. Hitchcock, or . having the Democratic caucus post? poned until after the treaty is voted upon again so Mr. Hitchcock could continue to serve as temporary leaiier. Refusal to Compromise Criticized Senator Hitchcock's refusal to nego? tiate a compromise with the "mild re. ervnt ionists" among the Repub ican : Senat??i-a after it had become apparent ? the treaty c uld nol be ratified with? out reservations sowed the seeds for Hie revo.t ??gainst ir?e Hitchcock lead? ership early in the treaty fight. Many of his Democratic colleagues openly criticized the course Senatoi Hitchcock was pursuing, and when Senator Martin died a split occurred \ within the Democratic ranks over the question of his successor. Senator Underwood is openly a can ?i i da te for the leadership, and has tht support of Joseph P. Tumulty, Secre? tary to President Wi.son, and Attorney General Palmer. Senator Underwoot is managing his own campaign, an? has secured pledges of many Demo cratic Senators to vote for him ii the caucus. Senator Hitchcock led the Admin istration forces in the treaty figh ' by virtue of his position as ranking Democratic member and former chair? man of the Foreign Relations Com? mittee. He was elected vice-chairman of the Democratic caucus iast June to direct the Administration forces in the iight for ratification of the treaty. Hitchcock Ignored by President When President Wilson returned from Paris, however, he sent for Sen? ator Swanson. of Virginia, and con? ferred with him about the progress of the treaty in the Senate, and ignored Senator Hitchcock for two days. When reports of this incident were published, coupled with other statements that Senator Swanson would suppiant Mr. Hitchcock as acting leader of the Democratic forces, the President went to the Canitol, conferred with Senator Hitchcock anil denied the reports The Nebraska Senator then remained in charge of the Administration's fight for the unreserved ratification of the treaty. Senator Hitchcock's friends, ap rarently alarmed at the growing senti? ment for Senator Underwcod, insisted to-day that an open split over th< leadership would weaken the Admin? istration forces in the treaty ?igh*. Senator Hitchcock appeared at the Canitol ear'y and a ter a conference with Senator Chamberlain, of Oregon it was announced '.hat Senator ?'ham berlain would be Mr. Hitchcock's cam? paign manager. Senator Chamberlain summoned al minority Senator's who are friendlj toward Senator Hitchcock and who ar< still in Washington into conference and for several hours fourteen Demo cratic Senators, including Hitchcocl and Chamberlain, discussed the situa lion. Westerners Support Hitchcock Senator Hitchcock will have the sup port of most of the Western minorit; Senators for the leadership, hut th< contest will not be strictly between ,;i Southern members on the one side am the Northern and Western Senator-; <> the other. Senator Culberson, of Texas, th o'dest Democratic .Senator in point o continuous service, is supporting Mi Hitc'eock, and so is Senator Simmon: of North Carolina, the next rankin Democrat.

Jenkins, American consular ..,.? !,ii ?u Puebla, by the Mexican au? thorities is ordered in comp.iance with the American note sent to the Car? ranza government yesterday. The peremptory demand by the United States in yesterday's note was characterized to-day ?is more of an ultimatum than the usual "representa? tions" this government previously has made. It was said the document called for the release at once of the American official, who has been subjected to the ?^dignities of a second arrest by the officials at Puebla. A reply had not been received to-day from the Mexican government. The failure of Mexico to release the America:, official within a reasonable length of time, it was sa:<! in a high quarter to-day, would compel the American government to send an ex? peditionary force to Puebla to liberate .! enkins. For some time the War Department has had available detailed repor on the possible military operations tha .?,-ouid be required if American troops were sent across the border to remain until a stable government could be formed in the southern republic. .Navy Prepared for Action I?

The State Department to-day made public the text of a report sent to it by Mrs. Jenkins, giving a detailed ac? count of his kidnaping-. The report includes statements which were not given in the letter which Mr. Jenkins wrote Representative Davis and which was made public yesterday. The Mexican government, Mr. lenkins asserts has taken no steps to capture FedcricO Cordova, the bandit who held him for a ransom of $150,000 in Amer? ican goal. Continuing, the report say-;: Mexico Inactive, Says Jenkins "It is proper to say that the gov- , eminent officials of this state did not assist in any practical way in my re? lease, for. while they ?lid arrest many persons and caused a great stir by their apparent activities, they did noth? ing at all of a practical nature, and their activities served more as a dis? turbance than a< an assistance.
