[LAWYER DENIES
DEWEY CHARGE
Darlington Denies Inten
tionally Misleading Ad
miral's Wife in Suit.
Joseph J. Darlington, attorney for
the American Security and Trust
Company, trustees of the estate of the
late John R. McLean, denies that he
Intentionally misled Mrs. Mildred Mc
Lean Dewey In regard to a suit
charging her brother. John R. Mc
I/oan, with fraud and misrepresenta
tion of mining properties In whlcn
she was Interested.
The suit was brought by Frederick
IT. Bugher, a nephew of McLean,
seeking an investigation and adjust
ment of the estate, naming his co
heirs as defendants, the principal be
ing Edward B. McLean. Soon after
Mrs. Dewey filed an answer to this
suit, in which she stated that she did
not believe that her brother had com
mitted any wrong act In managing
the affairs of the family. Recently,
however, she filed a substitute answer
in which she states that facts have
lately come into her possession which
bear out the allegations of the plain
tiff. and she complains that Darling
ton endeavored to hide these facts
from her and did not fully acquaint
her with information to ahich she
was entitled as an interested party.
Seat Wrtttfi Syaopala.
"When the suit was filed I sent
1 Mrs. Dewey a copy of the bill and
I a written synopsis to make it more
! intelligible, along with the following
statement: "Your financial Interest
? would be advanced if Mr. Bugher
should succeed in having his charges
sustained. If the court should be
lieve them true you would be en
I titled to be restored to your orig
inal one-third interest In the mines.
It is proper for me to bring this
act to your attention, although I un
derstand your attitude toward Mr.
Bugher's charges and claims." Mrs.
Dewey, Darlington declares, often
expressed the opinion that there was
'no possibility of sustaining the
charges of fraad and mlsrepresenta- .
tion. that they were wholly untrue
and an InJuaUce to her brother's
memory.
When the case neared a hearing he
states that he sent her the following
note:
"I have been and am unwilling to ne j
in the position of attorney for the i
trustee of your brother's will and op- |
posing those charges while at the j
same time acting as attorney for you j
whose pecuniary Interest would be;
advanced if the fraud charges should
by any probability be sustained, unless
under a mutually satisfactory under
standing."
Claim Charge* Unfounded.
In a subsequent Interview with)
her, the attorney charges, at which I
Admiral Samuel McGowan. as per- J
sonal friend and adviser of Mrs.
Dewey was present, she stated with .
emphasis that the charges of fraud
and misrepresentation against her
brother were most unfounded and un
true and that under no circumstances ,
would she accept a dollar which j
would come to her on the theory that
he had been guilty of conduct of that |
character.

Don't Sue Railroads,
Commands McAdoo,
Shielding Companies
William Gi McAdoo, Director of
Railroads, yesterday threw his hat
In the ring and invited legal at
tacks.
? "Don't sue the railroads," is hia
order to expectant lltigantB. "Sue
me, as Director of Railroads."
While the government is operat
ing the roads, Mr. McAdoo rules it
unfair to make them responsible
for the government's actions. AH
suits for damages and injuries
must be against him. Suits only
for recovery of fines, forfeitures
and penalties alone should be filed
against the railroads themselves.
No bonds may be required of the
Director General in connection
with any suits so filed against
him.
Prist Paper Relief Promised.
Relief from the print paper short
! age in this country is promised by
Chairman Hurley of the Shipping
I Board and Director General of Rail
| roads McAdoo. They have arranged
I for a supply of ships to bring wood
j pulp from New Brunswick to Maine
| where it will be worked up in the
! paper mills there.

Sorri things are so simple that they

When Ithings are obvious, people keep
looking for mysteries behind them.
Soiiiswith the packing business. The
mere sue of Swift & Company confuses
many.! Because their imaginations are
not gefced up to scale, they believe there
must fbc magic in it somewhere?some
weird [power.
Swift & Company is just like any
other I manufacturing business, run by
human beings like yourself, it takes in
itenal on the one hand and turns
hed product on the other.
& Company keeps down the
',or the expense absorbed between
finished material, to as low a
figurfcas possible.- (If it didn't it would
be p\|tout of business by others who do.)
'much Swift & Company pays for the raw
mateifa, how much it gets for the finished pro
duct, Wends upon conditions which Swift & Company
does Ait control.
J depends entirely upon how much people want
the fy?hed product, and how much raw material
thereto available to make it from.
