Widow Faints As Nott Death Cliest Appears Murder Trial Dcfendant Screams in Terror When Trunk Is Brought Into Court and Falls to Floor Moans Rest of Session Doctor Testifics Wounds on Head Coiild Have Been Made With Rolling Pin BR1DGEP0RT. Conn., May 26.?Mrs. Ethel Hutchins Nott, on trial here for the murder last August of her husband, George E. Nott, threw the courtroom into confusion to-day when she ut tered piorcing screams and fell faint ing to the floor as the trunk in which Nott's body was found was offered in evidence. Elwood B. Wsde, convieted as an accomplice in the crime, was executed last week. The trunk was carried into Court by two bailiffs, who had to pass tho wit ness chair in which Mrs. Nott sat. She turned paje and screamed in ter ror, coliap^ing- at the feet of tho proso cutor. Within a. few minutes the dc? fendant was revived and sat. moaninrr in her chair. The courtroom was in u ferment, scores of womoti and girk crowd;ng inr-ide the rail to view the cxhibit. A ten-minute recess was necessary before order could be re storcd. MpJical Examiner Samuol Garlick identificd the trunk as (hat in which h discovered the body of Nott. Tho ex arainer said that four gunshot wounds had been found by him in the body, sixteen incised wounds caused by a knife and head wounds caused appar cr.Uy by a club. Attorney Henry Shannon for'the dc fense tried to obtatn an admission from Mr. T.arlick that the blows on tnc head, which are declar-.-d to have caused Nott's death, could not have been inflicied by a voman of Mrs. Nott's physical powers, but the ex? aminer swore the man's skull could have-been crushed by a rolling- pin or any one of a dozen household utensils, In his opening address Mrs. Nott's coujnsel declared that her only partici prition in the crime had been her ef fort to sh'eld Wade, the murdercr. Following: her fainting fit, Mrs. Nott remained in a highly nervous state throughout the session, keepir.g her face averted from the trunk which stood. by the attorney's table. --o Marry, Be Fat and 'Cuss''; You're Less Apt to Steal Wife Makes Man Six Times as Honest as Bachelor and Ideal Surety Company Risk ATLANTIC CITY, May 26.?frederic N. VVithey, representative of the Na? tional Surety Company, toid the Kiwanis Club at its weekly session here to-day that the ideal risk was a fat man who was married and given to <:ussinjj. ~ Each of those qualifications, he said, made for honesty, and when they were combined in an individual, the risk, from the point of view of a surety company, was negligiblc. A married man was six times as honest as a bachclor, said Mr. Withey. A fat man occupied his spare time with thought of the next meal when he was hungry and with nothing at a!l when he was full. A man \vho swore when things went wrong generally took no other measures to get even with the scheme of things. Surety company Statistics, he said, showed that women were more honest than men. Among the ruces, the Chinese had the highest reputat.on for honesty, possibly. Mr. ( Withey sug gested, because theft was a capital offense in recent times in Chtna. Figlit Opens On & Y. Fire Risk Board Untermyer Says Exchange Is Despotic Monopoly; Tellsof 30 Million Year Excess Cost to State Concealed Profits System Diselosed Witness Asserts U. S. Pays 400 Million Annually to Foreign ?Coinpanies Samuel Untermyer, chief counsel to the Lockwood Committee, opened tne financial phase of the committee'.s in? quiry into the high cost of housing construction yesterday, with a general survey of the insuranco business of tho nation and a specific nttack against the New York Firo Insurance Exchange, which he characterized as "one of tho most despotic monopolies in the coun? try." Mr. Untermyer was himsclf amazed to leam from tho first witncss called, Alfred M. Best, an insurancn expert, that approximately 45 per cent of all fire insurance premiums collected in the United States goes to foreign com panies. This givcs these foreign firms, mainly_British, it was testified, ! something like $100,000,000 a year of ! Americanynoney. "Unrevealed Profits" Practice There were disclosures of huge "un- I revealed profits" distributed among j ' l tocfcholders of fire insurance firms ! and a practice of "writing d6*wn as-| sets" among many concerns, the i ] manipulation in both instanccs being' resorted to. it was declared, 1o afford ! the companies excuses for keeping the ; : rates on a high level. The "unrevealed H profits" in the case of the ten leading l companies <>f the country are said to have amounted to ahout $10,000,000 : I annually. j j ln connection with tho operations of I the New York Fire Insurance Exchange j ! in excluding mutual companies?those li distributing profits among their policy- ' i holders; from rate snd reinsuring services,' Mr. Untermyer said the prac- j ? tice is costing the people of the State i < of Xew Vork $30,000,000 a year more l \ than they should pav in premiums. It > ] was figured that if the mutual com-], pameswere pcrmitted to operate on | i in eo.ua! basis with the stock com aanies, tho citizens of the. .entire coun- i try would effect a saving of approxi- ! ? mately -$100,000,000 a year. Mr. Best qualified as an expert on ' ! tire insurance matters through his hav ing been a compiler and publisher of '< sight annual and monthly statistical I '' reports refrarded as authoritative throughout the country. He estimated ' the total fire insurance premiums paid c in annually in this country at $850,-'' 300,000, representing a property valua- ;( tion of more than $8"),000,000,000. As j \ insurance is written on about 80 per \ cent of property value, the real value J is estimated at considerablv more than ! ?100.000,000,000. ' Business Done by Foreign Firms ! Of this total he testified that stock;" companies, as differentiated from mu- ji tual companies, write more than S040,- jf t>00,000 in premiums. Approximately!* 45 per cent of the busines's is in th'e j ] hiinds of foreign firms with agencies 5 here or who control American firms. j rhe majority of these are British, fce i' said, with a number of large French * concerns. 1 Although there are 255 fire insu__- ! ' ance stock companies in the country,,1 he testified that ten of the leading ' ( companies do almost half the nation's M business. Among these are the Home M Fire Insurance Company of New York, i < with a total annual business of $45 - ' 1 300,000; the Continental Company,;1 with a total annual business of $17- 1 000,000; the Hartford Company, with;) 5:37,000,000; the Great American, $18-1 D00..000, and the Aetna Fire Insurance;! Company of Hartford, $L'5,000,000. It was brought out that frorn'28 per ! cent to 4(5 per cent of the total pre? miums collected by the ten leading firms was used for operating expenseR1, including 20 per cent absorbed by Eigents and brokcrs. Under the law 50 per cent was set aside as a reserve fund, out of which any losses during the year were met. In reply to ques tions Mr. Best said that this reserve fund wasriiot carried as an asset any where in the companies' statements, although it was found that only 50* per cent of this reserve fund was re quired to pay annual losses. This left a balance which the companies invest and from which they draw good in comes. This income, said Mr. Best, does not appear anywhere on the financial state? ments issued by the concerns. Mr. Un? termyer referred to it as "concealed (Continued on pago throe) ing to as From a St.aff Corresvondent TRENTON, N. J., May 26.?A cpjarrel that occurred a quarter of a century ago because Henry Clay Wells was too fond of a drink with a kick in it is all that necessitates "this red tape of getting married again," as Mrs. Rachel Davis Wella Ellmore, his former wife and hia seventy-two-year-old bride-to be, described the situation to-day. "If only the Pennsylvanla divorce laws," she said, looking up from her knitting, "had'been as strict as the marriage laws are in New Jersey, there would not have to be another wedding, either." She objected to the rule requiring a week'a residence prior to the wedding. "It is ridicuious," she said. "Here I am, in the same building with the father of my two daughters, and with cverybody calling me Mrs. Walls, and yet legally no relation whatever to Henry." Notwithstanding her scruples about "notoriety" over her marriage to-mor row to the man with whom she lived happily for twenty-eight years before divorce separated them for twenty-five years, there were signs that Mrs. Ell? more, or Mrs. Wells, as every one at the City Rescue Mission calls her, was aa plea.santly excited about her sec? ond wedding as she was as a young bride about her first one, and, accord-! ing to Mr. and Mrs. William Anderson,' who operate the mission, Mr. Clay has' been smiling continuously all week, For one thing the circumstances of this second occasion have been much more romantic. In 1868, three years j after the Civil War, in which Mr. Clay,' as a member of Company I., 147th ln-! fantry, marehed with General Sherman j to the sea, after fighting at Gettysburg,! Antietam and Lookout Mountain, there was not even a formal proposal. He, I being twenty-two, and Miss Davis being nineteen years old, just got married by I walking to the home of the Rev. Frank L. Robbins, then pastor of the Pres? byterian Church at Broad and Oxford Streets, Philadelphia, aad saying "I do" a few times. To win his bride the second time, however, Mr. Clay Had to summon all his couragef take a trip from Trenton to Philadelphia, and there, on bended knees. not so easy for a man of se-v enty-live, propose in real, story-book fashion to the woman whom he had not seen at all for twenty years. , The wedding to-morrow will take place in the City Rescue Mission at Treaton, where Mr. Clay haS been em? ployed for three years. The Rev. Samuel Steinmetz, rector of St. Mi chael's P. E. Church, will offlciate. Mr.. and Mrs. Wells will live at 518 Princeton Avenue in Trenton. , Russia Printing Rubles ln Trillion Lots Now RIGA, May 26.?A dispatch received hcro from Moscow says that since January l there have been issued 1,168,000,00(J,000 rubles in paper currency, as against -25,000,000,000 issued for tho same period of lafat year.

In 1918, said Mr. Gleason, the de- ; ;edent passed 218 days here and in | 1919 he ppent 1.98 days in New York. Vlost of the time he was not in New fork during those years, it was con- ! ;ended, Mr. Frick was at his coun- j ry estate, Pride's Crossing, in Massa- j shusetts. He passed only two days in | Pittsburgh in 1918 and 1919, it was; said. William J. Maughton, private finan :ial secretary of Mr. Frick from 1905 \ :o his death, testified that the latter i leld most of his stocks and bonds in i Pittsburgh,. where he had a staff of j ;en persons looking after his securi? ties. He said Mrs. Frick owned a I louse in Pittsburgh to which she took i ;itle in 1882. Mr. Frick decided in : 3ctober, 1905, to live in New York. He leased the rositler.ee of George ^,r. Vanderbilt at Fifth Avenue and Fifty irst Street for $50,000 a year. He re nained there until the completion of lis residence at 1 East Seventieth j Street. This was in 1914. Mr. Maughton said that Mr. Frick j lived more lin Pittsburgh before 1917 i thanfche did after that year. War Kept Him in New York "The fact is," said the former fman- j eia! secretary, "that he had to watch j things so much on account of the war, ' and the only way to do it was to be ' mostly in New York. Ile would come i down and rush back to his summer I home more often than in previous j years." Henry C. McEldowney, one of the j executors of the Frick will, said under ' examination that the testator told him to see that his will was probated in i Pittsburgh at oncc, as that was his j home. The will was admitted to pro- I bate there. Ile was also buried in ! Pittsburgh. Testimony was given that as a di rectcr of various banks Mr. Frick!

I Leading Financiers Will Confer on Best Course for Pronioting an Early Keturn to Normalcy U. S. Export Trade First Consideration Concern Expressed Over Possibility of Use of Loans Outside of U. S. WASHINGTON, #May 26.?A "meet? ing of best financial minds" has been inavJgurated by President Harding and his advisers as a means of considering the nation's industrial outlook, with particular reference to the question of extending further lozns of American capital to foreign governments. Somo of the most prominent figures in American finance and industry al ready have given the President the benetit of their judgment on specitic problems affecting the financial world, and in the near future. others are to be called to the White House to consult on ways and means to stabilize condi tions and hasten "the return to nor? malcy." The foundation for a series of dis cussions on these subjects was laid at a White House dinner last night, the significance and details of which be? came known to-day for the first time. With Secretary Mellon of the Treas? ury and Secretary Hoover of the Com? meree Department, the President had aa his guests for the occasion J. P. Morgan, Paul Warburg and a half dozen other men of great infiuence and power in financial circler,, includinK James A. Alexander, of the National Bank of Commeree, and Cbarles A. Sabin, of the Guaranty Trust Company, Xew York; Governor Benjamin Strong, New York Federal Reserve Bank; C. E. Mitchell, National City Bank, New York; William Kent, of the Bankers Trust. Company, New York, and F. C. [ McEldowney, Union Trust Company,: Pittsburgh. That the financial situation in Eu-: lope must be reiieved if Ameriawn ex- ' port. trade is to fiourish was agreedi upor. by those at the dinner. Bffhkers Pledge Aid The resumption of home industjles i and the exportation of our surplus I products also were questions gone over | in detail. The bankers present were ! unanimous in their pledues of coopera-: tion and a desire to do all in their power to aid. They feel that the vital ! tasks confronting the country to-day are the relief of the agricultural situa- ! tion and the promotion of exports. | They argued strongly that the surest j way to further exports was to help the financial situation in Europe. Whether to encourage further loans ; of private American capital to foreign governments was one of the questions ! irest seriously considered, with most of ' the financiers arguing that such ex- j tensions of credit presented the most ! practicable means to place foreign j finances on a sound basis. This ques? tion already has received- much atten tion by the Cabinet. Some of the vlsiting bankers, it was said, expressed concern over the pos? sibility of funds raised in this country by foreign bond issues being used to | buy the products of other foreign i countries. The belief was advanced ? that use of American money in such a | manner would result unfavorably to ' domestic industry, especially farming. ': Loane_l Money Would Return On the other hand, it was pointed out ' in some Administration quarters to-day ! that purchase of Argentine wheat by I foreign buyers with money borrowed ' in this country, for example, would as- i sist that country's business and the j money would eventually find its way j back into the United States in trade ! between the two nations. Administration olficials, however, dis counted reports that American money ! was to be used to any extent in foreign ! markets by foreign borrowers. Most of ' the funds to be raised here, it was as? serted, would be used to retire or fund existing government indebtedness hcre.

LONDON, May 26.?The SinnFeiners carried their incendiary warfare to Cork to-day, setting fire to the resi dences of several prominent Unionists and destroying several other houses on the outskirits of the city and the golf clubhouse. The attack was in retalia tion for the destruction by Crown forces of four houses iu Blackrock, County Cork, carly this week. after the troops had been fued on from those structures. The newspapers of Dublin and, Lon? don to-day are united in their denuncia tion of the incendiary attacks. as sense less wantonness. They assaijVihe lead ers responsible for yesterday's custom house fire in Dublin, in which eight civilians were killed and eleven civil? ians and four police auxiliaries wounded. About half of the 111 civil? ians arrested in connection with th'1 outrage were unarmed, but, as many discarded revolvers were found in the smoldering ruins to-day, the prison ers are being held. Alarm Gi^en by Ruse When the Sinn Feiners invaded the building and held up the employees one official was talking on the tele? phone. He guessed what-was happen ing, and, dropping the thread of his conversation, he leaned close to the mouthpiece and whispered, "Come at once or you'll be too late." As he spoke he was ordered to cut off the conversation and he hung up the re ceiver. It was this alarm which brought the,first lorry load of troops to the scene. There were other disorders in Ire? land. The railway line between Cork and Youghal was blocked, compietely severing communications between those cities, as the high way s were already j obstructed. In Belfast last night there j was rioting, in which one person was | killed. LONDON, May 26 (By The Asso? ciated Press).?The destruction by Sinn Fein incendiaries of the custom house in Dublin was decried on all sides to day.

Rickenbacker Smashes Plane; May Quit Trip American Ace Barely Es eapes Death at Cheyenne., Wyo.; Capital Flight Off ' Unless He Gets Mail Craf t 3 Miles in Air at Reno Fog Compels Him to Return to Redwood City Before He Makes Offieial Start CHEYENNE, Wyo., May 26.?Captain Eddie -Rickenbacker, American ace, ar? rived here at 8:46 o'clock to-night on his trans-continental airplane flight, smashed his plane in landing and nar-. rowly escaped death. As a result he may be unable to continue. his flight to Washington, D. C, he said, unless he can leave here in an air mail plane to morrow. The bad landing was not Ricken backer's fault, according to Superin tendent A. B. Dunphy in charge o fthe field. "Night fiyers are'enabled to land by means of flaming T's," Mr. Dunphy said, "and the cross on ;he T's is sup posed to point with the win'd. In this case they did not point in the right direction, through some mistake, and Captain Rickenbacker landed on the off side of the field and his plane ran j into the stage road." Captain Rickenbacker passed over Salt Lake at 5:08 o'clock this after? noon, flying at an altitude of 9,000 feet. He flew over Reno at 11:15 a. m. At that time he was 17,000 feet, more than three miles, in the air. REDWOOD CITY, Calif., May 2.? Captain Rickenbacker left here at 8:30 a. m. to-day on a flight which he hoped would take him to Washington, D. C, by to-morrow night. It was his second attempt to get away to-day, the first having been stopped by fog. Rickenbacker circled the field a few times before winging off ih a north easterly direction. The fog had cleared and air conditiens seemed ideal for the start. In the first attempt he went as far as Martinez, thirty-tivo miles north east. of here. The fog became thicker as he progressed, and was so heavy over the Sacramento River crossing at Martinez that all visibility wa? lost. He picked his way back to the field here after having been gone an hour and a half. Before leaving the second time Rick? enbacker expressed a doubt that he would reach Washington to-morrow night. He expected to "bomb" the cities over which hc passed with copies of the Memorial Day address of the national commander of the American Legion. The real purpose of the flight was to enable' him to attend a banqeut given by the Metropolitan Club in Washingv ton on Saturday. Rickenbacker began the flight "light" with the machine parts and accessories down to an irreducible minimum. Mayoress and Aids Ousted; Village Has No Government Svecial Diavatch to The Tribune HARRIETTA, Mich., May 26.-?This village has no government to-day. The recall election to remove the village president and her board was held Wednesday, and as a result the entire village board except two trustees whose terms have not expired were removed by a vote M nearly 2 to 1. The offiArs removed were: Mrs. Min nie Southwick, president; Robert Free man, clerk, and Bes3 Barry, Fred Reed, Chris Klingbell and Homer Houghtal ing, trustees. It is predicted that when a special election is called to fill the vaeancies the old officials will make another run. The Sheriff was at Harrietta to en force order during the election, but his services were not required. The result of We reeall came as a Burprise to poHtical observcrs here. Two weeks ago the pendulum of popu lar favor appeared to be swinging back to the woman Mayor and her admin? istration. Certaan villagers were united against holding a recall elec? tion, as it would drain the town funds, and were willing to allow Mrs. South wick to remain as president, "just for the spite of it." To-day's results, rather than setting Mrs. Southwick back, only tended to in crease her determination to keep her job at all costs. Between now and the speeial election to fill the places of the ousted officers Mrs. Southwick expects to wage one of the hottest pslitical campaigns this town has ever seen. Mrs. Southwick will remain at her post until a successor is named, she says. Mrs. Southwick and her loval council, composed of one woman and four men,' have clung to office despite the fact that they were beaten in the spring election. This election, they claim, was irregular. They insisted they were not legally defeated, and raised a question of legal technicality. The alternative to holding a recall election wai mandamus proceedings, in which the petitioners toould have had to guarantee the costs. In the recall election the expenee waa borne by the village. ^ Chamber Indorses Lon? don Ultimatum and Ex tendsVote of Confidence After 3 Days' Debate Look to America, Declares Premier Supreme Council to Take Up Silesian Problem; British Troops to Area PARIS, May 26 (By The Asso ciated Press).?The Chamber of Deputies to-day indorsed the govern ment's policy on German reparations payment by the substantial majority of 419 against 171. This followed a three daysf debat* in which Premier Briand cham pioned the government's attitude o* .the Silesian .and other importan' foreign questions. Backs London Ultimatum The first part of the order of thC day declaring that the London ulti? matum offered the minimum india pensable guaranties, was voted, 403 to 163; the second, implying confi? dence in the government to impose disarmament, full payment and the imrnediate appllcation of penalties ir. case of evhsion by Germany, waa adopted, 390 to 162. The vote on the order of the day as a whole was 419 to 171. The discussion on the govern ment's foreign policy, particulariy with reference to Upper Silesia, waa continued in the Chamber to-day. Premier Briand reiterated his con? fidence that the German government would carry out its obligations. He declared again that France's policy was one of mode.ation and justice. "France to-day," added M. Briand, "has the strength and force. It be hooves her to Use moderation unless the security of France is threatened. Otherwise, France will not make use of that force. "There is something beyond Conti nental opinion. We look to America to show us the way." Confidence Voted A determined aitack was made on the London ultimatum by M. Lefevr*, former Mihister of Finace, who de? clared that the only effective policy against Germany was force, and he offered a motion to refer the whole question to a committee. The Premier was visibly tired, and replied by raising the question of con fidences, which the Chamber voted. The Chamber passed to the consider? ation of the Arago motion, which was split into two parts. The first part, that "the Chamber considers the Lon? don ultimatum accepted by Germany as representing the minimum guar anty necessary for France's security and restoxation," raised no difficulty and was voted, 403 to 163. Will Enforce France's Kights The second part necessitated a veri fied count, which gave the government 390 -to 162.. This declared that "the Chamber is confident that the govern? ment will enforce France's r^hts by rigorously controlled disarmament of Germany and by the integral payment of the debt acknowledged by her, And to exact, in conformity with thd goT ernment's deelarations, that penalties be immediately applied in case of fail ure of fulfilment of the London agree ment signed by all the Allies. And further, that the Chamber is confident that the government will assure with regard to Silesia strict and loyal ap plication of the Treaty of Versailles, in spirit as well as in formJ.' M. Mandel then demandea a formal vote on the motion as a whole, not withstanding the loud protests of the majority, which desired to adopt it by show of hands. This motion was car? ried. 419 to 171. The projected meeting of Prime Min ister Lloyd George of Great JBritain and Premier Briand in Boulogne will develop into a full meeting of the Supreme Council, it now is expected in French official circles. Keparations will be discussed, as well as the Upper Silesian question, which may necessitate the presence of a repuesentative of Belgium, although there is no official conlirmation that Belgium will be invited to send one. June 3 or 4 is regarded as the mosS likely date of the meeting. The question of final settlement of the Asia Minor situation also is likely to come up. The Turkish Nationalis": counter-propositions to the Franco Turkish accord are said in official circles to be entirely unsatisfactory to the French government. The National ists ask for Smyrna and some Arab territory, and the propositions amount to a general revjsion of the Treaty of Sevres, which is*impossible withouttha agreement of all the Allies.
