The actual flying t in? from New York was fifty-five hours, Captain St. Clair Street, head of th ? expedition announced. The hop off on the return trip to New York will be made in a few days. The flight just completed by Captain Street's expedition has been made over ry neve? before flown over, and included extremely difficult flying over th? Canadian Rockies. Although the four army airplanes left Mine?la on Juiy 21, the actual flying time of fifty five hours from New York to Nome is .i; indication of the prospects of future ercial flying between this city and Alaska, according to members of the Aero Club. Immediately after news was received here of the completion of the flight, the contest committee of the Aero Club sent the following telegram to the commander: "Congratulations on wonderfully successful flight from Mine?la to Nome. I*, in a splendid demonstration of how the most remote parts of the country can be brought into close touch with the centers of government, and the flight is a forerunner of mail and com? mercial routes which we hope will soon be established to Alaska." The flight was made in the much criticizfld DH-4 types of biplane. The other three pilots besides Cap? tain Street were Lieutenant Clifford C Nutt; Second Lieutenant C. H. Cumnne and Second Lieutenant Ross Kirkpat aick. Republican Fund Is Only $944,3(63.82 Fred W. Upham, treasurer of the Republican National Commit? tee, commenting on the alleged $15,000,000 campaign fund which Governor Cox of Ohio has charged was being raised, said that sinci Ihe Chicago convention less than $1,000,000 had been col? lected by tne Republicans for the national campaign. The exact sum shown on the treasurer's books is $944,363.82, according to Mr. Upham. He added that Chairman Hays's estimate of $3,000,000 as the total required to carry on the campaign was quite correct. Widow's Charge Holds Two in Eckert Murder Moloney and Kane Refused Bail When Arraigned for Killing of Alleged Whisky Runner in Cab Warrants Out for 4 More Man Said To Be Close to Revenue Agents Ques? tioned by Prosecutor William Moloney and Charles Kane were arraigned yesterday in Stapleton before Acting City Magistrate J. Harry Ticrnan ?and held without bail on a charge of murder in the first degree in connection with the shooting of Fred? erick P. (Robert) Eckert, alias Robert Hayes, alleged whisky runner, who was ? found dead in an automobile last Sat- ? urday on Old Town Road, Staten Island, j Mr. Tiernan is county judge and took ' over Magistrate Mullen's seat on the bench yesterday. Mrs. Florence Hayes Eckert, widow | of the dead man, was the complainant. ' Moloney is the proprietor of Moloney's Hotel at South Beach, where she and ! her husband stayed for several weeks prior to the shooting. Kane is a hack- '? nan and the owner of the automobile , in which Eckert was found dead. As a result of the investigation of the ' mystery surrounding Eckert's death a; system of whisky smuggling between ' New York, New Jersey and Staten Isl- j and may be laid bare. It was intimated yesterday that several Richmond offi? cials might be implicated, at least one police officer and maybe one or more prohibition agents. Four Attack Eckert Mrs. Eckert, in her complaint yes- ? terday, charges that her husband met Moloney in front of 38 Oliver Street, Manhattan, at ten minutes past eight last Friday night and drove to Staten Island in Kane's automobile. She says "that while in the vicinity of Old Town Road Moloney met Charles Kane and two men unEnown to her, and did, then, wilfully, feloniously and with the pre? meditated design to effect the death of Robert Eckert, aid, abet and partici? pate, with the two unknown men," in shooting him while he sat in the front seat beside the driver. The case will be called again next Tuesday. Albert C. Fach, former Dis- ? trict Attorney for Richmond County and attorney for Moloney and Kane, sought first to have the case discharged for lack of proof and then to have it j continued immediately. District At? torney Joseph Maloy, however, won a postponement to enable him to arrange his case and obtain his witnesses, who, he said, were hard to find. Mr. Maloy is holding five persons as material witnesses. They are Mrs. Moloney, wife of the proprietor of the , hotel; Frank Donohue, an assistant at, the hotel: Mike Shuie, saloonkeeper; | Frank "Chuck" Connors, a hackman, and Mike Benedetto, an expressman. A man was questioned last night, who is said to be "close to revenue j agents." When asked yesterday if he had! questioned the prohibition agent said j to have caused Eckert's arrest on Au- | gust 12. Mr. Maloy said, "What's the j use? We know where he is and can get him any time we want him." Later he ? said he might interrogate the agent ; to-day. The controversy over the body of the I dead man was settled yesterday by Jus- , tice Townsend Scudder, in the Supreme Court, Brooklyn. He gave Eckert's widow custody of the body. She. had been restrained Monday night by Mrs. Margaret Eckert, Eckert's mother, from '?? interfering with the disposition of the body. _ Strike May Cripple All Federal Buildings Here Engineers, Firemen and Other Workers Will Quit Sept. 1 Unless Given Wage Raise Virtually all of the public, buildings owned and operated by the government | in New York and Brooklyn face the j prospect of being . crippled by Sep- ? tember 1 if the demands for an in- j crease in pay on the part of engineers, ! firemen, steam fitters, oilers, coal pass- ! ers and plumbers continue to be ig- j nored, it was announced yesterday. An ultimatum to that effect was pre- ; sented to Supervising Engineer Fry i at his office in the Custom House yes- j terday by Thomas Bagley, represent- ! ing the Steam Fitters' Union, Local j 670. He demanded that the so-called : Macey award, now enjoyed by skilled ! mechanics in the Navy Yard, be ap- j plied to the men employed in gov- j ernment buildings. Under the provi- ? 8ions of this award, engineers reach a maximum amount of $2,576.90 a year, j as against a maximum of $2,200 now '? paid his men. After the ultimatum was received Mr. Fry took the matter up with Wash- i ington officials, and later announced ? that he had been instructed to deny I the request and to place advertise- i menta in morning newspapers with a ? view to hiring new men. Among the buildings involved are ? the Postoffice, Custom House, Sub- ; Treasury and various government I banks. I Cox to Offer Fund Proof To-morrow Nominee Declares He Will Substantiate Charges Concerning 15 Millions, in Pittsburgh Address 'Promises Kenyon To Send Evidence Does Not Want to Appear Before Committee, but Offers to Assist It DAYTON, Ohio, Aug. 24.?Governor James M. Cox promised to-day that in his address at Pittsburgh on Thursday night he would prove his charge that the Republicans were gathering a $15, 000,000 campaign fund. He added that he stood ready at any time to go before the Senate committee investigating campaign expenditures, if the members cresired personal testi? mony, but doubted if that would be necessary. "I don't need a subpoena," the Gov? ernor said. "If they want me I'll go." ' In a statement of his attitude Gov? ernor Cox said: "Senator Harding denies my charges about the campaign fund which the senatorial oligarchy is raising. I am prepared to believe that he knows noth? ing about a lot of things that are going on around him. This reveals the very dangerous symptom which 1 have been discussing. In my Pittsburgh speech this week 1 will advise the coun? try as to matters of which the Senator claims to be ignorant and I will prove my charges." Sends Message to Kenyon .Governor Cox sent a telegram to? night to Senator Kenyon, chairman of the Senate campaign investigating committee, assuring him of assistance in bringing out the facts. "In addition to my statement in Pittsburgh," said the telegram, in re? sponse to one from Senator Kenyon re? questing information, "I will send to y in- committee such lends for infor? mation as I possess. It will be my pi.rpose to assist you in every pos? sible way." Confidence in proving his charges was indicated by the Governor. His friends here declared that he had voluminous documentary matter, in? cluding a considerable nmount re? ce: e ! to-day at Trailsend, where he spent the day working on affairs con? nected with campaign fund questions and personal affairs. Speaks in Indiana To-Day The Governor and his friends and advisers hope the Senate committeo will not ask for his personal testimony now that he has committed himself. They point out it would seriously in? terfere with his second stumping tour, on which he started to-night. He will make addresses to-morrow at Prince? ton and Evansvillc, Ind. That there would he little, if any, mention of campaign funds in his ad? dresses to-morrow was indicated by Governor Cox. The League of Nations and labor-questions, it. was said, prob? ably would be discussed principally, both Evansville and Princeton having large numbers of railroad employees.

Suffrage Vote Certification Sent to Colby Tennessee Officials Mail Formal Notification of State's Action in Ratifying Amendment Antis Seeking to Enjoin Secretary Will Strive to Prevent Issuance of Proclama? tion by Court Order 8i>ccial Dispatch to The Tribune NASHVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 24?Gov i ernor Roberts of Tennessee mailed by | registered letter this morning to Sec j retary of State Colby, President Wil j son, Vioc-President Marshall and the Speaker of the lower house of Congress I the certification of ratification of the j Federal suffrage amendment by the i Tennessee Legislature. The letters were dropped into the mails at 10:20 I o'clock. Tennessee opponents of woman suf? frage announced to-night that they j would lile suit for an injunction in the I District of Columbia directed against j Secretary of State Colby, to prevent him from proclaiming the ratification ' of the Nineteenth Amendment. Judge Joseph C. Higgins, president 'of the Tennessee Constitutional League, j said the league would file suit, probably ? to-morrow. He added that the papers ; in the case already had been prepared. Miss Charl i Williams, vice-chairman ? of the Democratic National Executive ? Committee, sent the following telc | gram yesterday to Secretary of State ? Colby: "Certification by the Governor of the ! ratification of the Nineteenth Amend? ment by the 61st Assembly of the State ! of Tennessee has been mailed by regis j tered letter to you, the President, the ; Vice-President and the Speaker of the lower house of Congress." After a writ of superscdeas ?Tad been ! granted last night by Judge Lansden : upon petition of Attorney General - Thompson, Governor Roberts asked I what should be the next legal step. He ? was informed by the Attorney General that he was legally entitled and author? ised, since the writ of superscdeas had I been granted, to make, certification to Secretary Colby of the ratification of the suffrage amendment. Acting upon this advice, the letters were addressed to the proper Federal officials. Governor Roberts merely cer? tified in an official way to the act of the Legislature, and it will be left to the proper courts and to Secretary Colby to decide whether the ratifica? tion was legal and in accordance with the rules of both houses and (he con stitution of this state. Colby Ready to Act Secretary Colby has announced un? officially and informally, according to dispatches from Washington, that he will proclaim the amendment duly rati? fied by two-thirds of the states and a part of the Federal Constitution as soon as he receives notice from Ten? nessee. At any rate, the Gordian knot into which the question of ratification had been tied for several days by court pro? ceedings, has oeen cut and the tangle must perforce be transferred, to other courts. Judge Higgins, of the Tennessee Constitutional League, said the action of Chief Justice Lansden would stay all procedure in Tennessee until the next meeting of the Supreme Court at Knoxville, beginning September 20. At that time the anti-suffrage forces will present the matter to the court and | pray that Judge Lansden's action be not upheld. In granting the writ of certiorari and supersedeas Chief Justice Lansden took the entire matter out of the hands of the lower court. The hill of injunction1 was filed in Part, II of the Chancery Court of Davidson County last Satur? day, and a temporary injunction was granted by Judge E. F. Langford. A supplemental bill was filed yesterday and a second injunction granted fur? ther restraining state officials and members of the Legislature from fur? ther carrying out the ratification action of the state Legislature. Those who filed the injunction bills were umazed at Judge Lansden's action in granting the writ without notifying , thfir attorney that such a petition, would be heard. WASHINGTON, Aug. 24.?Formal announcement by the Secretary of State of suffrage ratification is due i within twenty-four hours. This prediction by Woman's party leaders came immediately jffter a tele- j phone message from Miss Sue White, Tennessee chairman of the National ; Woman's party, to Alice Paul, saying that the certificate of Tennessee's rati- j fication had been mailed to Secretary' of State Colby at noon to-day by registered man. The Tennessee Su-j preme Court had ?..anted a writ of j supersedeas taking the injunction against Governor Roberts out of the j hands of the lower courts. Immediately upon receipt of the cer- j tificate by Mr. Colby, the issuance of I the formal proclamation announcing: the completion of suffrage ratification is expected by representatives of the Woman's party. South Russia Swept by Revolt Against Reds, Wrangel Reports Confirmed by Poles' Prisoners England Demands Reds Explain Broken Faith in Terms to Poland; Must Reply by Friday London Threatens To Change Policy Allies Instruct Tower to Unload Munitions at Danzig for Warsaw From. The Tribune's European Bureau Copyright, 1920, New York Tribune Inc. LONDON, Aug. 24.--While Paris re? joices to-day over the "revival of the Entente" and the triumph of French policy toward the Bolsheviki, seen in the pronouncement of Premier Lloyd George from Lucerne, London awaits the Russian reply to a stern note dis? patched to-night to M. Kameneff, Soviet trade envoy. The British government informs the Bolsheviki that the terms offered th< Poles at Minsk are understood to be a fundamental contradiction of those first submitted to Great Britain before the prorogation of Parliament and ask; if the information is correct. Britain May Change Policy Upon the answer, which must be re ceived by Friday night, the future policy of the British toward Russif depends. In official quarters here there is ? disposition to accept the French viev as to the unreliability of the Bols'he vik promises of a fair peace fo Poland, but until the Russian reply i; received the French view that Britaii and France are now united in opposi tion to Russia must be considered pre mature. It still is hoped, in view of the pre carious position toward British labo in which this government would b placed if forced to take action agains the Bolsheviki, that the latter wil amend the unsatisfactory terms, espe daily where they include the settini up of a workers' militia in Poland, an? thus save the situation. Severe defeats at the hands of th advancing Polish armies may, it is be lieved, lead the Bolsheviki to listet to reason, whereas the capture of War saw would probably have deafene? their ears. A Warsaw message to-day says th commander of the Russian Norther army has requested pourparlers, with view to the complete capitulation of hi army. Six Soviet divisions are said t have been destroyed entirely and eigh others to have lost 50 per cent of thei strength.

"The very serious view which h majesty's government takes of the! new terms is clearly explained in tl Premiers' communication, anel Mr. Ba four feels that he can add nothing what is there said.

It burst upon the sidewalk, [ spattering the skirts of a woman picket j and the clothing of a man pedestrian, who also was an Irish sympathizer and ? demanded vengeance immediately. According to Patrolman Ward, of the 1 Old Slip station, trouble would have j resulted if the crowd before the build ; ing had been able to determine from ; what, iloor in the building the water i bomb had been flung. I "They wanted to go up and clean , rip," said Patrolman Ward, "but they i didn't know whether it was thrown I from the fifth or the sixth floor." ! The patrolman is stationed in front ! of the building to keep the peace be ! tween pro and anti Irish. He calmed the spattered man and woman and went up in the building to investigate. Ward said a window sill of an office on the sixth floor, which is occupied by the Communication Service of the United States Navy, was wet, but he declared that the bag had not been dropped from that floor. Later a man in this office admitted that a dispute had arisen among officers over the Irish cause and one who disapproved of the motives of the half-dozen pickets contrived the water bag as a counter-demonstration. Fresh pickets were on the job yes? terday bearing new placards and ban? ners, stronger in text than those of the first day. One carried by two women read : "Protesting against British barbari? ties in Ireland. Mayor MacSweney is dying. The British Home Secretary says: 'Let him die.' The British Con? sulate says it is 'puerile' for American citizens to protest this. We shall see." The women have announced they will picket until the Cork Mayor is re 1 leased.

"Armed bands of Germans," the advices also said, "have attacked the French troops in Upper Silesi3 and have compelled them to leave the city. The French are preparing to defend themselves while await? ing orders. The Germans set fire to the offices of the inter-Allied com? mission, and have tortured many Poles." Cuban Variety Of Freedom for Egypt Assured - Speech Made by Roosevelt in 1909 Used as Basis of Millier Report Calling for Full Independence ?Ireland Next, Is Cry No\* Press Predicts "Common wealth of Free Nations' to Replace British Empir? From The Tribune's Europe&n, f?urenu Copyright, 1920, New York Tribune Inc. LONDON, Aug. 24.- It is officiall; confirmed to-day that the mission o Lord Milner recommends independenc for Egypt of the Cuban and Panama variety. Egypt will be left to rule an guard herself, the British merely hav ing treaty rights giving assured safet of her route to India through the Sue Canal. I learn from a high oflicial tha this recommendation is an unqualifie ' triumph for the Egyptian Nationalist: j The fact is that Lord Milner had th | idea of a protectorate in mind whe | he v,ent to Egypt, but the leader of tl '? Nationalists refused to meet him. i In May the British government sei an invitation to the leader to come I London. There was a pledge of ind? pendence attached. His presence hei was known, but the government aske the press to preserve secrecy, becau; disaster would have resulted had been known to his followers. One on cial told me: "If you publish this would have the same effect in Egyj as publication that a Sinn F?in lead? is negotiating with the governmei would have in Ireland." Commonwealth of Nations No announcement of the intend? policy of the government was receiv? by i lie press for a long time. Tl Daily Herald congratulates the go ernment and prophecies adoption 1 the Cabinet of the phrase, "Commo wealth of Free Nations," instead ''the British Empire." It adds: "As in Bgypt, why not in Irela and India? We are prepared to tru Egypt, lying across our spinal co of empile. Can we not extend an equ trust to Ireland on our western front London recalls to-day the spee made by Theodore Roosevelt in l'Ji then greatly-criticized, but now t basis of the Milner report. The eight recommendations of t report are: The protectorate proclaimed o?, Egypt and recognized by the Tres of Versailles to be abolished. Great Britain to recognize the dependence and full sovereign rig! of Egypt. This to be done in a treaty betwe the two governments. Egypt to have full control of 1 own foreign relations and to send 1 own diplomats to foreign natic which are qualified for membership the League of Nations. Army to Withdraw The British army of occupation be withdrawn entirely within a gi? period. A small British force of two or th thousand men to remain in Port S and Suez by agreement for the p pose of guarding the Suez Canal. British officials in the Egyptian g ernment to be withdrawn within agreed period. Detailed arrangements regarding Egyptian debt and the Soudan to we rked out in further negotiations. It is declared further that the B isli will guarantee by alliance Egypt integrity against outside aggressioi The Star comments this evening: resembles in many respects the rangement set up between the Uni States and Cuba and to a lesser tent between the United States Panama, with the difference that provided by the South Soudan te tory, which Britain conquered at gi loss of life. Water Supply Protected "It is not proposed at present hand the Soudan over to Egypt, Egypt will be given guaranties ; tecting her vital water supplies, s the Nile flows through them.

It is evident that the publicatio; the report will have a great e throughout the British Empire on aspirations' of its different peoples in Ireland and India.

PARIS, Aug. 24.?Profoundly dis trustful of the Anglo-Italian negoti ations which have just been terminate? at Lucerne, Premier Millerand o: France has responded to the,effusiv< declaration on the part of the Britisl and Italian premiers with a note whicl is brevity itself and couched in guard ed and negative language. On its face, the Anglo-Italian declara tion appears to be a complete back down on the part of England and Ital i from the conciliatory attitude the hitherto had adopted toward the soviet! Not only do they repudiate Bolshevi double dealing, but they offer to cc operate with France to secure Polis independence, and announce their in tention of securing the Danzig corri dor for Polisn supplies. Millerand's Reply Brief Premier Millerand answered in a fei words, declaring he was happy to se nothing in the Anglo-Italian declarti tion which was not in accord with th ideas and principles which France &. ways has defended. M. Millerand as sumes for diplomatic reasons that Enj land and Italy rallied to the side c France on the Polish issue, while bein perfectly aware that full adherence t the Anglo-Italian formula might lea him into a policy whereof neitht France nor America would approve. It is understood here that the pr mary cause of the Lloyd George-Gi? litti interview lay in apprehension c the part of Britain and Italy as to tl political initiative on the Continei which France was about to assume. Tl Anglo-Italian answer to the Frene move would have been an entirely di ferent one if America had not inte ' vened with her note to Italy at a crit cal moment.
