CHICAGO, February 10.—The Arkansas Children’s Home at Lit tle Rock, Ark., will receive $30,000, and the four dogs of Mrs. Mar garet Howard lost a $16,000 be quest, but won maintenance for life, by an order of Probate Judge Henry Horner today. The Jurist refused to admit to probate a pur ported copy of a later stolen will, said to have been executed by Mrs. Howard. The ease was a confusing one. and besides the purported missing will there was one or more in struments which attorneys sought to establish, one being unsigned and unsealed. Under the purported dog will Mrs. Tillie Leighton, only heir at law, would have received only SSOO. but under Judge Horner’s order will receive approximately half of the estate. Under the same purport ed will Rev. Edward Rawson of Alli ance, Ohio, was left SIO,OOO. The court’s decision was regard ed as a compromise. One of the four dogs disappeared the night of Mrs. Howard’s death and never has been found, so that the benefici aries under the decision will have j only three dogs to care for. CITY NEWS IN BRIEF.

THE SUNDAY STAR, WASHINGTON. D. C„ FEBRUARY 11, 1923-PART 1. ARCHIVES BUILDING FAILUREASSAILED Smoot Blames Disappoint ment of Pork Barrel En thusiasts for Defeat. DELIVERS 1 ULTIMATUM Declares Government Records Will Be Destroyed in Ten Years Under Present Case. Senator Smoot of Utah, chairman of the public buildings commission, yesterday assailed the action of the I House in refusing to agree to Senate 1 amendments to the Independent of- | flees appropriation bill, providing for a national archives building and for the erection of steel filing stacks to j Viold government records in the in- I icrior court of the Pension building. | Senator Smoot said that the Senate conferees had been told that as soon ' as there was a general public build ings bill, the House might consider proposals to house the government records. “Beause they cannot have a new post office building at Podunk,” said Senator Smoot, “we can't have an ar chives building to house the govern ment records in the District of Co lumbia.” Sene* Vltimntaia. Senator Smoot, who was one of the Senate conferees, said that he had given notice that next year If the Senate voted for an archives building, the Senate conferees would not yield on the matter. The Utah senator said that one of the arguments used against the erec tion of filing stack in the pension building had been that the stacks would cut off the view of some govern, ment officials in the pension building. Senator Smoot said that the erection of these stacks would save the gov ernment thousands of dollars. The government’s valuable records to day are in such a condition that they would fall to pieces unless handled with great care, and in ten years from now. he said, if nothing is done to preserve them in a better manner, it will be Im possible to read them. Measure Is Indorsed. As long as he continued to be chair man of the public building commis sion, Senator Smoot said, he would try every year to reduce the expenses of the government and to bring about t*- ■ adoption of proper measures to safeguard the government records from destruction by fire. Senator Swanson of Virginia, who has been a strong advocate, too, of the erection of a national archives building in Washington to house the records of the government, urged that Senator Smoot ask the Senate to vote to send the independent offices back to conference and further insist upon its amendments for an archives build ing and for the erection of the stacks in the Pension building. “I would like to see this issue fought out now'.’’ said Senator Swan son. “The Senate has again and again yielded to the House in this matter. The House conferees seem to think that when they say that the House voted against this proposition, they have said It all. and that is an end of the matter. The Senate has its rights and a vote in the Senate is just as re spectable as a vote in the House.” Hope for Measure Later. Senator Smoot said Chat he had agreed in conference not to push the matter further at the present short session of Congress. But at the next session, which is a long session, he promised the matter would be taken up vigorously. Hope for Measure Later. Senator Warren of Wyoming, chair man of the appropriations committee, said that he agreed with Senator Smoot that it would be the better plan to let the present appropriation bill go through without the provision for an archives building, and then take the matter up when Congress had more time to consider it. He said that the other conferees on the part of the Senate felt just as strongly as Senator Smoot in favor of an archives building. The conference report on the Inde pendent offices bill was finally adopted and the bill now goes to the President. HELD FOR WHITE SLAVERY W. H. Hampton Accused by Vir ginia Girl—Charge Denied.

CARR, Secretary ASHER, PRIZE SLEUTH OF OKY SQUAD. TO LEAVE As a result of a conference between ■Prohibition Commissioner Haynes and Gov. Plnchot of Pennsylvania re cently, It was Intimated yesterday that J. A. Asher, the Sherlock Holmes of the enforcement group, would probably be assigned to Pennsylvania for the next six months, according to Ralph E. Ruby, assistant divisional director of prohibition agents. It was declared that this step was taken In an effort to stage a clean-up in Read ing. Pittsburgh, Harrisburg, Phila delphia. Scranton and Wilkes-Barre, whence allegedly "wide-open” antl prohlbltlon practice Information has reached the ears of enforcement officials. "It comes as a hard blow to us in Washington to lose the services of Asher.” declared Lieut. S. T. Davis, in charge of the police department’* vice squad, which has been co-operat ing with the prohibition forces. “We had held a faint hope tnat he might be assigned here for some time, or that his transfer might have been held up, but apparently the publicity attendant upon his first coup has made him too well known and practi cally useless to Washington.” Asher came here from Louisville. Ky., about three weeks ago. He worked in disguise on about sixty cases, with the .result that prohibi tion agents and police staged the most extensive raiding crusade in the history of prohibition enforcement in Washington last week. In gathering the evidence for these raids Asher posed at various times as a jurist from Bourbon county. Ky.; as a stock promoter for an electric ap pliance concern of Schenectady. N. Y.; as a driver of an ash cart and in other roles. PLAYS HAMLeV 101 TIMES, BREAKING RECORD RUN Barrymore Sails for Europe at End of Performance—Boards Liner at 2 A.M. NEW YORK. February -The peaceful calm on the Olymp* .» she lay at her pier at 2 o’clock this ■morning was disturbed when a tall, muffled figure strode briskly up the gangplank, a bag in either hand. He accosted the watchman. “I want a stateroom." he said. “My name Is Barrymore—John Barry more.” The watchman protested, but the early caller was insistent and the proper officials were awakened and the actor provided with an emergency cabin—his name was not on the passenger list—in the interior of the big liner. Mr. Barrymore, having concluded 'the record-breaking run of 101 suc cessive performances of "Hamlet,” had Just stopped to remove his makeup ' when the curtain closed on last night’s performance, before he took a taxicab to the dock. He locked himself in his cabin -and refused to open the door. “I’m sorry, ’’ he said to reporters through the door, "but 1 can’t let you In. I'm tired and not very well. I’m going to Europe to meet my wife. I'll be back in the fall.” EDISON TO WORK TILL 100. WEST ORANGE. N. J., February 10.—Thomas A.
