Harrison Attacks Provision.
The Senate bill provided for no non
quota admissions, and the Senate con
. ferees eame in for sharp attack from
Senators Harrison of Mississippi and
Shields of Tennessee, Democrats, for
| agreeing to the admission outside the
‘.quota of the wives of American citi
| zens resident in the United States,
the unmarried children und' - eighteen
years of age of such citizens and
ministers and professors accredited to
I American colleges.
I Calling attention that all of the
Senate conferees had voted against
the provision for 2 per cent quotas
based on the census of 1890, Senator
Harrison declared that if he had had
: any idea that they- would have agreed
in conference to permit exceptions he
'.would have made a fight against their
appointment. He added that he would
offer bills today to wipe out the ex
ceptions. and that if he could get
enough "help in Congress I will try to
put them through.”
Reed Contradicts Shields.
Senator Shields characterized the
measure with its exemptions from the
Senate quota as a "legislative abor
tion” and brought a sharp reply from
Senator Reed, who declared that most
of the things Senator Shields com
plained of were in the original Senate
measure. This Senator Shields dis
Praising the conferees* for their
work. Senator Ijodge of Massachusetts,
the Republican leader, declared that
the great end that would be accom
plished by the legislation was far
more important than any detail.
Senator Lodge predicted that the
legislation, if maintained, would be
of far-recalling importance through
the centuries and would change the
■ urrent of the Infusion of blood into
the American people.
Replying to Senator Harrison, Sen
ator Harris, Democrat, Georgia, said
be had no apologies to make for his
work in the conference, adding that
be believed there had been evolved a
measure which "meets the approval
of the country.”
Shipwtead leads Fight.
Senator Shipstead took the lead in
the tight against the seamen’s pro
visions. and was joined by Senator
King, Democrat, Utah, aJso one of the
conferees. Senator Norris. Republi
can, Nebraska, said he did not want
to do anything that would weaken

Senator Reed of Pennsylvania said
Andrew Furuseth, president of the
International Seamen’s Union, had
complained about provisions of the

In reply to questions. Gen. Black
said that there is no reason why the
shore of the Potomac at Alexandria
or further down the river should not
become a great industrial, as along
the Delaware. Such areas would un
doubtedly be greatly developed if the
Potomac River plant is installed.
Sees Compulsion Legal.
Answering questions by members
of the subcommittee. General Black
said that a provision compelling pub
lic utilities to buy and distribute all
of the power generated is entirely
compatible with law and present
He emphasized that the govern
ment can profitably make this de
velopment where it would be un
profitable for private concerns, be
cause in the money market the
private companies would have to pay
as much as 8 per cent, where the
government can get all the capital
it needs at 4 or 4Vs per cent. "That
difference represents the spread be
tween success and failure." he said.
Apart from the cheapness of power
produced there would be an imme
diate and very material saving in
coal gained from this project. If the
hydroelectric plant was in operation
in 1923 there would have been a sav
ing at the rate of $435,000 annually
in the District.
Tivis saving would be to the United
States government, to the District
government and to the people of
Washington. The hydro electric
plant in operation in 1923 would have
meant a saving of 208,000 long tons
of coal, thus releasing a tremendous
amount of freight traffic.
In reply to questions from Chair
man Zihlman, Gen. Black said that
while be believes the government is
the only agency that can develop
this project, economically, he would
not be in favor of the government
going into the business for retail de
li very. The government might lease
the plant for production, or it might
operate the plant and sell the power
at wholesale. He could see no objec
tion to leasing the plant to a local
distributing company such as the
Potomac Electric Power Company.

expressed his difficulty to understand
why counsel so distinguished should
have advised even the filling of the
report, or why. in their capacity as
advisers on matters of law to the
grand jurors, they did not inform
that body that in the circumstances
there was no justification for report
ing the refusal of the witness and no
expectation that the court could law
fully direct him to answer.
Stands on Rights.
White by no means admitting that
he has been guilty of any offense
against the laws, Mr. Hogan said,
young Doheny stands squarely upon
the protection afforded by Article V
of the amendments to the Constitu
tion. Hie client avers and his lawyer
asserts, said Mr. Hogan, the sterility
of the assurance which the. attorneys
for the government gave him before
calling him before the grand jury.
They, nor no one else, could guar
antee to him any legal protection
against action of any future grand
jury on evidence which young Do
heny might give to this grand jury.
Such assurances cannot deprive Do
heny of his oonstitutional privilege.
Mr. Hogan contended, which right
is not limited to defendants, but is a
common shield for all persons sum
moned as witnesses, irrespective of
their relation to the proceedings.
French Policy Is Defended as
Justified and Assailed as
H. G. Moulton Calls Exports Crux
of Problem.
liy ill t* Associated Press.
posite views regarding the effect of
the French policy on the European
situation were expressed today by
speakers at the annual meeting of
the American Academy of Political i
and Social Science.
As a result of the French policy, j
Pierrepont B. Noyes, president of the ]
Oneida Community, Oneida, N. Y.. de
clared that Europe was working eco
nomically toward bankruptcy and po- :
litioaliy toward war. while Frederick
11. Allen of New York city asserted
that had not France and Belgium
gone into the Ruhr "the prospects of
European settlement which now pre
vail” would not have come about.
"It being only too evident that
France’s policy was directed toward
bringing about the economic and po
litical vassalage of Germany, and
a corresponding predominance of
France." said Mr. Noyes, "fear and
ambition have poisoned the politics
of all the little states of Europe;
have made subordinate economic
measures to political and military
t ails France Brutal.
"The brutal technique of France's
occupation and invasion has aroused
the passions of the German people
more than did the war, and has made
revenge more certain unless France
keeps that nation effectively disarmed
for generations, and keeps herself
and her military allies effectively
"If 1 were to put into one sentence
the situation In Europe and its cause
I would say as a result of French
policies. Europe is economically work
ing toward bankruptcy, politically to
ward war.”
Mr. Allen declared that had England
and the United States "lived up to
the agreements made in Paris to come
to the aid of France in case of a
German attack." France’s move into
the Ruhr would not have been made.
"The report of the Dawes commis
sion.” he said, “justifies the claims of
France in regard to the ability of
Germany to pay. and I believe it can
truthfully be said that had not France
and Belgium gone into the Ruhr,
there would never have been any
Dawes commission, and the pros
pects of European settlement which
now prevail, would not have come
about, and therefore. ,on the whole,
whatever criticisms may have been
leveled against France, one can say
her policy in a distressing situation
seems to be leading to a successful
VtuK** New War.
Oscar T. Crosby of Warrenton. Va„
said that the policy of France was
the same as that of other nations —
"a military preparation commensu
rate with resources and estimated
danger-—nothing else will count until
the world is ready for a real league
of nations.” "Meantime,” he added.
”we are all on the old basis. All are
contributing in various ways to
bringing on the next war.”
Harold G. Moulton, director of the
Institute of Economics. Washington.
D. 0., asserted that the ability to
export increasing quantities was the
crux of the whole German trade
"Not only are reparation payments
dependent upon the recovery of Ger
man markets, but Germany’s buying
power and Germany's whole indus
trial security are dependent upon the
recovery of her foreign trade," he
"The prospect for a rapid expansion
of German foreign trade and the de
velopment of an export surplus is by
no means alluring, judging by the
tariff and commercial policies of the
world. German goods are not wanted
in huge quantities."

has achieved these results and that
the good will culminate June 6, when
the national contest will be held at
Memorial Continental Hall.
"We have felt for a long time that
oratory and public speaking needed
arousing in the public high schools
and it simply waited for the neces
sary impetus.” declared Principal
Hart of the Eastern High School.
“The Star oratorical contest has
definitely awakened the interest of
the whole student body in the vast
influence which correct public, speak
ing can have on American citizens.
“This enthusiasm will not die at
Eastern, and the results will be felt
in specific, and general work through
out the rest of Eastern’s career.”
Principal Daniel of the McKinley
School said:
“We consider the oratorical contest
has been very beneficial in its ef
fects in stimulating interest In the
Constitution, the makers of the Con
stitution and in the country made by
the Constitution.
"The pupils showed great en
thusiasm and the teachers appreci
ated this effort to help make better
citizens to an even greater degree
than I had anticipated.”
Statement by Principal Darla.
Principal Davis of the Business
High School, discussing the contest,
said: “I feel gratified at the effect of
the contest. The Influence has been
very helpful, not only in the line of
English and public speaking, but the
interest which the whole school,
teachers and parents have evidenced
has been very encouraging.
The average age of the contestants
for the grand prize is seventeen
years three months, the youngest be
ing sixteen years old and the oldest
nineteen years.
Word was received from New York
today that Randolph Leigh, national
director of the oratorical contest, who
was expected in Washington tomor
row, will not be able to come here
until next Tuesday.
New York and Philadelphia have
selected their grand prize orators,
and the remaining four zones outside
the District are expected to choose
their leading secondary school ora
tors today or tomorrow.

Chairman Brookhart.

He was pressed to gve details of
the conversation.
"I told Smith that not one of the
defendants in the Remus cases bad
taken the stand.” Remus went on.
”1 was sure several of them would
have been acquitted if I had gone on
the stand. He said the court of ap
peals would undoubtedly reverse the
decision. Mr. Zoline was there and
he was my chief counsel.
A soared of Pardon.
“When the matter was taken to
the Supreme Court, by a writ of
certiorari, ho said there would be a

Senator Jones asked If Remus’
checks would identify payments to
Jess Smith.
“Some of them have had pencil nota

"The general. He said that in his

Remus agreed that his money pay

Dead Before Case Came Up.
When the case got into the Supreme
Court, Remus said, “Jess Smith was
dead." The commutation could not
be considered until the Supreme Court
had acted.
"The money I paid him was all cov
ered by our contract. He was to render
all possible assistance in the Depart
ment of Justice, in and after with
drawals of liquor on permit," Remus
said. "He told me the general would
do everything ho could in the premise®.”
"You never had any doubt of his in

"There was none, from my viewpoint.”
Senator Wheeler suggested that
Remus was "afraid to tell all he

said. “With matters in the situation

I didn’t want to testify. But when
the Atlanta penitentiary is charged
with giving Remus special privileges
that's injustice. I’ve been persecuted.”
“And you've been double-crossed?”
Senator Wheeler put In.

dressed In a gray suit, gave his age
as forty-seven when he was called
to the stand, and said he was bom in
Germany and educated at the Chicago
College of Pharmacy, but later had
taken a law course and hat. prac
ticed law for nineteen years.
“Sojourning now at Atlanta peni

He denied that he had any special
privileges at the prison, and said he’d
lost twenty-three pounds in the few

Asked About Prison Dope.
“What do you know about dope
down there?" Senator Wheeler asked.
"I’ve been there three and half
months and haven’t seen an ounce of
any narcotic drug.” Remus said.
He agreed he "had been in the
liquor business for four years” at
“I owned seven distilleries prior
to that," he said, “but they were all
seized, confiscated or scattered.”
He named the plants In Kentucky,
Ohio and Indiana. He got into liquor
business Just after the Volstead act
was passed in 1919. he said.
"I was practicing law in Chicago
then,” he remarked, “and bought the
distilleries after the law."
Senator Wheeler asked him to de
scribe his plan of operation.
“I organized drug oompanies. whole
sale and retail, and sought permits to
withdraw the liquor under the law,”
he said, "for sale through the drug
companies. I paid from $25,000 to
$300,000 for the distilleries. The
Fleishmann plant at Cincinnati, for
instance, cost me $1&5.000.
“I paid $126,000 for the Rugby dis
tillery, in Ohio, and $226,000 for the
old Lexington Clnb, in Kentucky.
Medicinal Sales Farce.
“Os course, the liquor sales for
medicinal purposes is a farce. There’s
hardly an ounce of liquor prescribed
for medicine legitimately. I’ve never
had a drop of whisky in my life.”
The witness said he was Introduced
to Smith in 1921, in New York City.
“What was the occasion of your
meeting Smith?” asked Senator
Wheeler, the committee prosecutor.
Diocoaocd Permits,
“From the viewpoint of obtaining
withdrawals of liquor from bonded
warehouses for my drug companies,”
Remus replied, “it is my remembrance
it was at the Commodore Hotel. Wa
discussed with, him the permits for
withdrawals for the Alps Drug Com
pany, the Central Drug Company of
New York and others.”
The ‘‘demand for liquor was greater
than the supply,” Remus went on.
E. M. Zoline, & law partner of Thomas
Felder, was counsel for Remua and
brought Smith and the liquor man to
gether. In conversations with Smith,
he explained, “the third party would
gracefully withdraw.” •
The witness wont rapidly over a

BALTIMORE, Md.. May 16.—The
public service commission today is

of the Washington and Rockville
Railway Company to substitute a bus
system on the Silver Spring end of
its line. At the same time the com
mission granted permission for the
use of one-man safety cars on the
line provided the tracks are lowered
at Silver Spring to eliminate the
grade crossing.
This means that the railroad will
have to pay the $17,500 demanded by
the state roads commission as its
share of the expense of the elim
ination of the grade crossing at
Silver Spring. The company notified
the commission It was willing to pay
$12,500 as a fair proportion of the
cost, but felt it should not be taxed
the extra $5,000.

however, has received assurance that
