Chicago, Aug. 2D. Representative
Jami - W. Qood, chairman of the House
ApproprlaUons Committee, on the. eve
, f tin opening of the Inquiry by the
Kenj on committee Into the Cox
charges of ;i Republican campaign
fund of Jl 5,000,000, came forward to
wlth a charge that Democratic
office holders had violated the corrupt
practices act by levying political as
sessments on Federal employees.
He charged that K. T. Meredith,
Secretary of Agriculture, and Wilbur
Marsh, treasurer of the Democratic
National Committee, were directors of
itn Iowa club organized to oDtaln money
from Federal employees In secret, and
demanded that the Senate committee
nvestlgate his charge that an Iowa
woman postmaster, among others, hod
l"y been directed to contribute 3 per cent.
of her salary.
Republican leaders have ready a mass
uf documentary evidence that would
prove the Cox. charges untrue and "cru
Ify him to his own cross."
Representative Fred A. Britten, who
will appear before the committee to-day
in support of his charges that 187,500 of
British money had found Itself In the
'ox campaign fund, said :
"My testimony before the Senate com
mittee will hinge on the assumption that
lirltlsh employees in every direction.
. mployed in America, who spread propa
ganda in favor of the WlUon-Cox
League of Nations, might Just as well

.Vatlonal Committee, because they arc

"If the Senate committee presses If
inquisition far enough. It will no doubt
how that all or nearly all of that
87.500 appropriated by Great Britain
far the British Embassy at Washington
for 'entertainment' purposes, has already
b"en spent for 'publicity purposes In the
interest of the League of Nations,
a-alnst Irish freedom or In the interest
of the Cox campaign for the Presi
dency." , ..
Representative Good gave out a letter
sent to a postmaster, a woman, by the
Iowa club, which he charges Is violating
the corrupt practices act, containing this
"People who owe us excuse the debit
by saying they can't make ends meet on
account of the war. They don't get by
with this to their grocer, and Inasmuch
us the game of politics is one of the
largest businesses In the United States
and Inasmuch as we are running poll
tics In Iowa on a business basis, they
mould not try that Una of argument
"Besides this we have a great many
other things to look after. We are look
ing after your interests in Washington.
"You owe us $33 for this year. I
am sure you understand this because
our representative, Mr. Plum, explained
it to you when he called on you April 4."
He said In comment: "This letter was
written In violation of the corrupt prac
tices act. The call on April 4 upon the
postmaster In the Federal Building was
in violation of Uie criminal code yet
these offences go unpunished."
Mr. Good refers to a report by the
I'nited States Civil Service Commission
concerning levying of political assess-1,
ments against Federal officials' em-
ployees, and then continues:
"Let the Senate committee Investigate
nnd then tell the public how much money
has been raised, and Is being raised, by
these Illegal practices for the election
of Cox and Roosevelt. Why have these
serious violation of the law by Demo
cratic official escaped the attention of
Gov. Cox and Franklin D. Roosevelt T'
!lfene g2T.000.000 Fund.
Representative Good asserted that If
"the Cox method of computation" were
employed and a like assessment were
' levied against each of the (00,000 Fed
eral employees, whose compensation Is
J 900,000,000 a year, the Democrats
would be shown to have an annual cam
paign fund of 127,000,000.
"We will fight fire with tin," said
Mr. Hays. "We will not only make
publlo everything connected with our
campaign, but we will force the Demo
crats to do the same. We warned them
at the start that we would not take
their aspersions lying down and we are
going to back up that statement"
Will Hays and Fred W. Upham,
chairman and treasurer respectively of
the Republican National Committee, are
ready to go before the Kenyon commit
tee. Under their supervision copies of
i he party's hooks and records were made
containing the name of every contributor
to the campaign fund and the amount
given, the party's campaign budget and
the quotas assigned districts. Another
statement prepared Is said to show the
xpendtturea of the party In the cam
paign. "It will all be given to the committee
"morrow," said Mr. T'pham. 'it will

Trk.NTO.V, Aug. 29. The Rev. Fred
erick S. Kopfman, who achieved con
siderable notoriety by his criticism of
the bathing costumes and the other
evidences of frightful wickedness of
the summer colony at Washington's
Corners, N. J., went back to the Cor
ners to-day to complete his work of
salvation. But instead of being re
ceived with open arms the minister
was received with a volley of over
ripe tomatoes, eggs, stones and other
missiles which smashed the windshield
of his motor car, raised a big bruise on
the ministerial countenance and lav
ishly decorated his clothing with to
mato seeds and the fragrance of eggs
that once were all right but which at
the time of throwing were totally aban
doned and depraved.
The Rev. Mr. Kopfman'a first adven
ture in the peaceful village of Wash
ington's Corners was a lecture In the
Tltuaville Methodist Church on the
wickedness of the present generation.
Dr. Kopfman talked to a large crowd
and aroused large Volume! of laughter
when lie hastened from the pulpit, sat
down In a front pew and shouted:
"Look! This is the way girls sit In
the subway !"
Everybody looked. The minister was
exposing his socks.
"Some of the girls wear so few
clothes," he said, "that 1 think they
must be tattooed."
The minister then walked to a large
bouquet of flowers and plucking a red
dahlia he smelted of It and said:
"We must bow to the Nineteenth
Amendment, giving the women the right
The Rev. Mr. Kopfman then declared
that Washington's Corners was the
worst place morally that he had ever
been in, and pretty soon after that he
left the church and embarked in his au
tomobile and started on the ride to the
station to catch a train to Brooklyn.
Several newspaper reporters, who will
know better next time, were with 1 1m
in the automobile.
In the centre of the village the preach
er's car stopped abruptly In the midst of
a crowd of more than luO of the people
who had been the subject of his dis
course. Dominie Kopfman began to talk
to them, but some one shouted. "Duck
him in the river." and the preacher de
cided that this was not a propitious mo
ment for a sermon.
Then some one threw a stone and
smashed the windshield of the automo
bile, and after that a girl on the out
skirts of the crowd let fly with a fright
fully ripe tomato, which hit the minis
terial chest with a resounding splash.
Acting on this hint, the crowd uncov
ered ammunition dumps of astounding
proportions and proceeded to bombard
Mr. Kopfman with tomatoes and eggs
and other missiles, none of which were
abroad In the land with the permission
of the Board of Health.
Nobody tried to drag the preacher
from the automobile, but they hurled
things at him and hit him until they
got tired and then they let the auto
mobile move on. But after a few yards
the oar was stuck and the Rev. Kopf
man Immediately hopped on to the run
ning board of another passing car and
begged to be taken to Trenton.
"But I'm not going there," said the
'Then I'll go wherever you are go
ing I" cried the preacher.
The automoblltst relented and took
Mr. Kopfman to Trenton, where he
brushed some of the marks of battle
from his person and caught a train.
He said, however, that he would go
back to Washington's Corners next
Tuesday to present his evidence on Im
morality to the township board.
Belfast, Aug. 29. Eleven men dead
Is the toll of Saturday night's fighting
in Belfast. In addition to the six men
killed during the height of the battle,
some of the wounded died to-day.
A feature of the rioting was the ex
tent of the destruction of property by
incendiarism. The Are brigade had an
especially hard time during the night
In fighting the flames. Their work
was rendered hideous by the constRnt
rattle of machine guns. The Sinn
Feiners were In strong force and ap
peared to tie well supplied with arms
The greatest 3 bitterness was dis
played during the fighting. There was
a great amount of wrecking of houses
ami the burning of furniture, both In
doors and on the street. The yells of
the mob, and the shrieks of women and
children and the groans of the Injured
wore audible throughout the fighting.
When the rioting was at Its worst
women could he seen, clad In their night
ittlre, rushing from their homes, at
tempting to lead their families from the
Venple Fenr New niottng.
The excitement was Intense until 10
o'clock Sunday morning. Isolated firing
was to be heard throughout the fore
noon, and the people were apprehensive
lest there should dV a renewal of the
disorders at night fall.
Three attempts were made to-night to
burn the Independent Labor Party Hall.
The last attempt resulted in serious
damage to the bulling. The police
charged crowds In Ilie Crumlln road
with their batons, nut order was not
restored until the troops arrived.
It Is reported that an armored car
Bred on a crowd around a bonfire and
I hat a boy was shot through the breast.
Two constables are declared to have
been sent to hospitals as a result of

Paris, Aug. 29. The French Govern
ment rewarded den. Wcygand's Polish
success this morning when, at a con
ference at the Ministry of War, M. Le
fevre announced the general's promo
tion to Grand Officer of the Legion of
Honor. Gen. Weygand's promotion Is
one of the most rapid In the Legion s
history, he being knighted In 1918, made
an Officer In 1914 and a Commander
after the armistice.
Interesting figures published to-day
show the growth of the Legion as a re
sult of the war. Before the war the
maximum strength permissible was
15,000. hut with the latest appointments
there are about 100,000 Frenchmen and
several thousand foreigners who wear
the coveted rosette.
In a statement Issued at the Hotel
Continental, where the officers of the
Amalgamated Association of Street and
Electric Railway Employees of Amer
ica aro making their headquarters.
Louis Fridiger, attorney for the union,
emphatically denied yesterday that the
! strike among the employees of the
Brooklyn Rapid Transit Company was
' In any sense an outlaw movement, and
asserted that it would have the full
support of the heads of the organiza
tion In this city.
He characterized as "camouflage"
the statement that the men are strik
ing for a closed shop, and declared that
tho strike will end "In five minutes" If
Receiver Garrison and other persons
looking after the interests of the com
pany agree to abide by the terms of
the arbitration agreement they have
with the men. which provides for an
adjustment of the wage demands sub
mitted some time ago.
The real Issue, he declared, is the
contention of Receiver Garrison and
Federal Judge Julius M. Mnyer that in
event of the arbitrators fixing a wage
scale which the company cannot af
ford to pay, the court, which has juris
diction over the assets of tho cor
poration, may cut the award. He said
that the strikers stand squarely upon
the wording nf the agreement, which
says that neither party to it shrill ques
tion the findings of the arbitrator.
President's Sanction Lacking;.
Mr. Frldlger admitted that up to last
evening he hud not received the sanction
of William r Mahon. the Interntlonal
president of the union, for the strike
that was under wny. but he treated this
phase of the situation as If it were of no
particular significance. He had made
repeated but unsuccessful efforts
throughout the day to. get Into communi
cation by long distance telephone with
Mr. Mahori, who Is In Detroit
When reporters found Mr. Fridiger he
had Just received subpienas calling for
the presence of Patrick J. Shea, organ
izer of the Amalgamated, several of the
local officials and himself before the
Public Service Commission at the open
hearing which Is scheduled for 2 :30
P. M. to-day.
"I am very glad that the whole matter
Is to be threshed out In public," he said,
"because It will give us a chance to show
some people up. The way things have
been going the men would have been
Justified In striking at any tune during
the past six months."
He was very indignant over what he
characterized as the misinterpretation
of SheR's attitude on the strike question,
nnd particularly reports to the effect
that the organizer had told the men he
would outlaw them if they walked out.
He explained the organizer's attitude
nt the first meeting of the union on
Saturday evening. "When the first
strike vote was called for," he said,
"there werev upward of 1.000 men who
were unable to find seats In the hall.
A standing vote was called for, and
obviously there was no way of telling
who was voting and who was not. Then
a hand vote was asked, and It was ob
served that some men were holding up
both hands. As we did not want to be
charged with unfairness, Shea and I de
clared that ' we would not sanction a
strike that was voted in such a manner
"It has been said that Shea Informed
the men at the second meeting that Mr.
Mahon, the International president, had
sanctioned the strike. That Is untrue.'
Acting upon my advice, Mr. Shea did
not address the second meeting at all
The chairman spoke and a rising vote
was taken. This time It was possible to
take such a vote because there were
only 2,500 or 3,000 men In the hall, and
all were able to find seats. They voted
unanimously for the strike. I really be
lieve that the sentiment was overwhelm
ingly In favor of the strike from the
very start, and that had it been possible
to takaAj proper vote earlier In the pro
ceedings the result would have been the
Majority Absent During Vote.
Mr. Fridiger was asked If the fact
mat oniy z.auu or 3,000 men were pres
ent would tend to Invalidate the strike
vote In the eyes of the Internatlnal or
ganization. He replied that It would
not According to the figures given out
by the union officials regarding their
membership the strike must have been
voted by less than 25 per cent, of men
The reporters were told that Mr. Shea
