Tho House was thrown Into an up roar late yesterday by demands for a congressional investigation look ins to the ousting of Gov. E. Mont Reily of Porto Rico, made by Felix Cordova Davila, tho resident com missioner, and by counter charges from Representative Tincher of Kan sas that Mr. Davila's "animosity" against Reily was aroused because tho latter had vetoed legislation which would have given Mr. Davila $5,000 a year for four years, in addi tion to his salary as resident com missioner. * The flare-up over the row between the governor and some of the resi dents came at the conclusion of an hour s speech by Mr. Davila, who sits as a delegate in tho House. Many Charges Hade. The American Governor of Forto Rico was pictured by the speaker as an intlmldator of the Judiciary, a trafficker in public office and a man without standing in his home country. He gave a long list of specific rea sons which, he said, prompted the people he represents to urge him to demand a congressional investiga tion "only after the Harding admin istration was given free opportunity to act." Mr. Davila, who Is a member of the unionist party of the island, expressed the belief that if Gov. nelly should be called as a witness beToro an in vestigating committee "he. himself, will be the best evidence of the jus tice of our demand for his removal." He told the House that while he believed President Harding made a mistake in appointing him, he kuew "the President was imposed upon." ajid therefore the appointment was not made "knowingly or with the least malice toward the people of Porto Rico." He added, however, that "we have exhausted all of our means to obtain the removal of the governor by the administration." Fourteen Charge* Detailed. Briefly, the charges against Gov. Reily by the resident commissioner are: First?That in 1909, following an investigation by a post office inspec tor, the Post Office Department di rected the postmaster at Kansas City, Mo., to remove Mr. Reily as assist ant postmaster. Second?That In 1904 he was In vestigated and recommended for re moval as assistant postmaster for having made alleged false affidavits and for having caused certain scur .rilous articles to be published In the public prefs about prominent citizens of Kansas City. Thlrd-r-That he has appointed as chief of the secret service of Porto Rico an illiterate Kansas City. Mo., jailer, who was removed in Kansas City for incompetency. Fourth?That his administration as Governor of Porto Rico "has been a succession of insults to the peo ple" and that "almost overnight he transformed the island from a land of peace and happiness Into a hotbed of dissension and despair." Fifth?That he has removed from office without just cause competent officialsl with long experience and appointed in their stead men lack ing in the necessary qualifications. Intimidation Charged. Sixth?That in an effort to force confirmation of his appointments, which the law says shall be made with the advice and consent of the senate, he has endeavored to intimi date members of the Porto Rlcan senate by threatening to have the government at Washington annul the organic act. Seventh?That by false statements and unwarranted accusations In pub lic speeches he has endeavored to stir up strife among the loyal and patriotic people of Porto Rico. Eighth?That in flagrant violation of the law, he has reappointed to office men who had been definitely rejected by the senate. Ninth?That he has announced he will receive $200,000 during the next four years in office, whereas the sal ary of the governor is $10,000 per annum. Tenth?That he has unlawfully In terfered with the courts of justice and attempted to Intimidate the Judges thereof; that he has attempted to bring the courts and the Judiciary of the island Into disrepute. Eleventh?That In his publlo speech es, In utter disregard of the feelings and sentiments of the citizens of the Island, he denounced the flag of Porto Rico as a "dirty rag." Removal of Jndge Protested. Twelfth?That he has brought about the removal from office of Judge Bonner, the able and efficient auditor of Porto Rico, and numerous other trained and competent officials, and appointed In their stead men lacking in experience. Thirteenth?That he appointed George S. McClure of Kansas City. Mo., a man without education, as chief of the secret Service, and that one of the first acts of McClure after his arrival in the island was to tear a Porto Rican flag into shreds and to trample it beneath his feet. Fourteenth?That one of his prin cipal associates and counselors Is the leader of the socialist party, who has proclaimed himself a champion of the Soviets of Russia, and who also has announced his affiliation with the third Internationale of Moscow, and who has been most ribald In hts at tack upon the teachers of the Chris tian religion. Th* governor In his tour of the Island publicly embraced this man and repeatedly referred to him as the type of citizen with whom he proposed to counsel while he re mained Governor of Porto Rico. Should Welcome Investigation. "President Hardliig, Gov. Reily and Mr. Davila should court a full In vestigation by Congress." said Mr. Tincher. who followed the commis sioner. "While I do not know Reily personally. 1 have been advised that he represents the sentiments of the best element in Porto Rico." Declaring that the charges by Davila showed Reily's "gross unfit All the Kiddies love Barber BilfeShop No other place like it inWashingion JSMht&fa/ZSjy | THCM<tm?tTmitr* mtramit una* ? JL n?M (or ofllce," Representative Oliver, democrat, Alabama, asked Mr. Davlla If ho expressed the feelings of his people. "i most assuredly do," he replied. During the hubbub while attempting to regain the floor Mr. Davlla insisted on the right to be heard, declaring an attempt had been made to Impeach his character. Given time to answer the Tlncher allegations Mr. Davlla shouted his denunciation of the governor. The commissioner explained that several years ago the legislature, over hia published protests, passed a bill giving him 15,000 a year in addition to his salary as a delegate, that he refused to accept it and so announced In the newspapers. A year later, he said, the legislature again passed the bill, which he opposed, and that Judge Bonner, the auditor, held in May, 191tf, that it was unconstitutional. Denounced aa Lies. "That was long before President Hard Inj^s election and long before Reily was thought of as governor of the island," Mr. Davlla exclaimed. "When lio said It was brought to his attention and that he vetoed the bill I am compelled to say tnat he lies, lies and he knows he lies." Having aired the charges. Mr. Tlncher, Interrupting the commissioner, explained that his statement as to the veto was based on a statement in a letter over the governor's signature. As he made this explanation Mr. Tlncher held up a letter which members took to be from the governor, but which was not read. "I think It only fair that I should say this," said Mr. Tincher. "And that of Itself is enough to cause the removal of Gov. Reily," Mr. Davila shouted. The commissioner at the outset of his speech presented a measure from President Barcelo of the Porto Rtcan senate, saying it had refused to con firm the governor's appointment, and that he had made recess appoint ments. The resolution of the senate asking: for an Investigation also was put In. Past Declared "Jihad7-" "I am strongly of the opinion from information submitted to me," said Mr. Davila, "that an investigation of Reily's past history will show he was not the kind of man who should have been placed in an Important position like that of governor of 1,360,000 peo ple. His past is shady, to say the least." Apart from the crisis "created in Porto Rico by the governor himself," the speaker declared, "there does not exist any condition which may serve as an excuse for the selection of a coalition cabinet. There is nothing abnormal in the island, but the pres ence of K. Mont Reily." Ciov. Reily, Mr. Davila said, "boasts of his strong influence with the President of the United States." "'I am a very influential map.'" he quoted Reily as saying. "Asked by the President why he did not make ap pointments, Reily told me he replied, 'Mr. President you are the boss,' and the President said, "Mont, bring the names and 1 will sign." "The administration of Gov. Reily has been a succession of Insults to the people. When he went to the Is land he found a land of peace and happiness and almost overnight he transformed it into a hotbed of dis sension and despair.

SAN JUAN, Porto Rico, March 2.? Injunction proceedings will be in voked to test the powers of Gov. K. Mont Reily to reappoint officials not confirmed by the Porto Rican senate, Antonio Barcelo, president of the senate and of the unionist party, said today. He said the proceedings might be begun this week. El Tiempo, a republican organ, to day published a photographic copy of a letter from Cayetano Coll y Couchi, unionist speaker of the house of dele- , gates, addressed to the municipal i officials of the island, urging them to j cable protests against Gov. Reily to Washington in support of the recent ; senate accusations and slating: "The I most profound silence and discredi- j tion are recommended so that the i sending of the cables shall not be known until the latest date possible." In 1920 Swedish hydro-electric j stations were developing 1,200.000 horsepower. The equipment since added probably brings the total close ! to 1,500.000 horsepower.
