SENATOR ATTACKS FARM LOAN BOARD Hfl'weU Charges Inadequate Ac wrats Were Kept of Transactions. nwwnrF.TS ARE OPPOSED Senator Glass Defends Confirmation by Committee. Charges against the Federal Farm Loan Board and strong opposition to confirmation of the nominations of four members of the board were voiced in the Senate yesterday afternoon by Senator Howell of Nebraska. Repub lican. Senator Class of Virginia. Demo crat. a member of the. bunking and currency committee, declared that the nominations had been approved by that committee after a complete bearing. Given Reeeas Appointment*. The nominees—Lewis .1. Pettijohn of Kansas, Elmer S. Landes of Ohio. Merton L. Corey of Nebraska and Ed ward E. Jones of Pennsylvania— were given recess appointments a year ago by President Harding and their names were sent to the Senate last December by President Coolidgo. Senator Howell charged that there had been "a violation of a cardinal principle of public policy." which should be assessed against the board in the matter of the appo ntment of < "harles E. Lobdell. its former chair man. to the post of fiscal agent, at a salary of $25,U00 per .tear. This ac tion he declared to be “utiiawful pro cedure in the creation of a new official.” Other charges included: 'Mxioseness and gross misconduct of affairs in the board. Indicating incomitetenoc.” and evidenced by the lack of books of ac count. “Unlawful withdrawal and expendi ture of public funds to the extent of *65.000 to J 75.000.” “Looseness and neglect in disburse ment of public funds, no receipts or vouchers beink kept." “Misapplication of public funds, in cluding presents to employes and ad vances." Opened Aceounl Here. The Nebraska senator said Commis sioner Lobdell opened an account in a local bank in December. 1922. with Sj.ooo drawn from the Treasury, and this account was supplemented from time to time until February 16. 1924. when a total of ISO. OOO had been de posited. This amount was drawn on from time to time, the senator declared, “without voucher or receipt.” “One of the nominees.” he continued, "drew *2.000 on account of salary, but was called upon to replace it.” Senator HowTll said he had asked at the board's offices for the books of the organization and been told the Fooords were kept by the Treasury. Holds Records Incomplete. "At the Treasury." he continued, "1 was told they only kept an ac count of receipts and expenditures. The amazing conclusion was that there have been no complete records of the operation of this board, which handled *881.000.000 of public money." Senator Howell said his charges in part were based on testimony taken by the Senate banking committee in the course of hearings or. the nom inations. “The remarkable position was taken by one commissioner.” he added, "that he didn't see why any books were necessary beyond checks and correspondence as long as the twelve banks were satisfied with what they were getting.'' Senator Glass declared the conmit lee had been "entirely satisfied there had been no carelessness in the handling of public funds” and pro tested against the matter being brought into the open Senate. This _ is a subject for executive session.” he declared. "Members of the committee are prepared to con vinoe the Senate there that their ap proval of the nominations was jus tilled.” WARNS OF FURTHER KILAUEA ERUPTIONS Expert Says Other Explosions May Cause Heavy Loss of Life Soon. »T the Amor la ted Press.

A proposal had been under consid eration to permit attorneys for George E. B. Peddy, candidate against Mayfield, to go to the Atlanta Klan headquarters to explore the records for any evidence of contributions by the order to the Mayfield campaign fund, but counsel for both sides agreed that the proper course would be to examine the books here. That de cision was said to he satisfactory to Klan officials. No hearing was held by the com mittee today because of the absence of important witnesses. Those ex pected to testify tomorrow include: E. Y. Clarke, at one time imperial wizard of the Klan: Gossett Greer, assistant district attorney at Dallas, who worked at the Mayfield head quarters during the 1922 campaign, and Morris Mayfield, brother of the senator.

He had a messenger assigned to him.” “Did >ou ever write a letter about the Dempsey-Carpentier fight pic tures?” “Yes. to somebody up in New Jersey, a man named Reed. I think.” Smith get files and "anything with in reason" he wanted at the depart ment. she said. Alfred Urion, Howard Manington aind Wade Ellis visited him frequently. Means and Smith, she .said, also were frequently together. Told Menas What To Do. "Did Jess Smith dictate confidential memoranda to Means?" Senator Wheeler asked. “Very frequently. Instructions as to what Means was to do, and other things. I think Smith had Means in vestigating Gen. Sawyer, and was sending Means' reports on to the President.” She also named “.Mrs. Cross.” "Col. Darden." ”E. H. Mortimer.” “Senator i Caraway” of Arkansas, and "Repre ; sentative Woodruff” of Michigan, as among those under investigation. Smith was directing Means in the work, she went on, and some of it was for President Harding. The witness declared that Smith "dictated a letter to himself for the signature of President Harding” in 1922 authorizing Gaston B. Means and W. T. Underwood to “investigate the prohibition situation" in New York. This had been preceded, she said, by a conference between Smith and Means, which ended when Means said he "would have to have something more." 1 "Smith then walked over to me.” she went on.

Senator Wheeler switched the ex amination to "espionage” upon the , committee and Mrs. Duckstein con firmed her husband's account. “The letter Pettit and O’Brien had . was addressed to Mr. Daugherty do I have to tell you all this'.”’ “Yes,” said Chairman Hkookhart. • .She went on to explain that the letter used her name, and said Means was going to use her to fortify his own statement before the commitie It was signed by Todd, she said, and suggested to Daugherty that be have Mrs. Duckstein questioned.

As "chief shadow” assigned to fol low Means, he said, he had five as sistants, one of them a woman. Be tween March 18 and April 1. when the work was discontinued- he said. every move of Means was "covered.” and every visitor of his home was | followed up and identified. Mrs. Alaska P. Davidson, also a department operative, testified that she was one of the “shadow group,” and drove an automobile used in its functions. From March 6 to March 18, she said, the watch was not .so close, but later extra men were as signed. Means, who has told the committee of collecting money for Jess W. Smith and of many other sensational activities, sat in the committee room grinning broadly at his ’shadows” while they were undergoing examination Attorney Chamberlain asked Burrus if the watch on Means was not placed because of New York indictments against him. but the witness did not know. Orders to stop the watch came to him April 1. he said. Uoekatela stud, Duckstein testified to knowing Jess Smith, and said Smith introduced him in June. 1922. to W. T.

Underwood Means and McLean were ail in Palm Beach during January. 1924, he said "What were Underwood and Means doing down there?” asked Senator Wheeler. “I saw them going over a lot of papers once,” Duckstein replied. Duckstein. whose wife is a secret agent of the department, and author of the famous “Mary” message that figured in the oil inquiry, then told the committee that a "crew of lives,” men and women, led by Wal ter Pettit and a man named O'Brien, and claiming to work under direction of Hiram C. Todd, special assistahf to Mr, Daugherty, had been used to spy on committee members and wit nesses. . He declared Pettit and O'Brien said they were "going to railroad Gaston Means to the peniten tiary” and "frame Senator Wheeler.” the committee prosecutor. W—» Wire-Tappers. The “crew" hfcd women detectives placed in the Senate Office building Duckstein declared, and “wire-tap pers” to get conversations.

Pettit* and O’Brien then came to his flat, he continued, and said they had a letter from Todd in New York to Daugherty, arranging for their operations. In a series of conversations, Duckstein said, Pettit and O’Brien told him fully about their purpoee. Chairman Brookhart of the commit tee also was put under surveillance, Duckstein said. He did not know whether the espionage was still in progress. It started March 16. “O’Brien told me they had men In lowa looking up Senator Brookbart's record, and men In Montana on Sen ator Wheeler," Duckstein said, “and were looking up all the members of the committee.” “I tbink the less attention we pav to this the better,” remarked Senator Jones.

"The tester's office is equal to any in the church," Dr. Smith said in his speech of withdrawal. “I feel that I can best serve the church in that office.” Dr. Rice said that the pastor's task was the most difficult in the church and that he had never de sired the office of bishop. Declarations that the salvation of the youth of the oLurch was in danger were made in the discussion of a resolution, adopted in amend- 1 ed form, for the safeguarding of Sundav school litreature. "We instruct our editor and his staff,” the amended report of the com mittee on Sunday schools read, "to studiously avoid the use of those ex pressions which disturb the spiritual sensibilities of our children and peo ple, and to seek in every way to bring every comment into accord with the standards of faith and doctrine held by the Methodist Episcopal tTiupch." "1 hope something will be done for the salvation of our youth,” said the Rev. Charles M. Boswell of Philadel phia. “Many Sunday schools are re fusing to purchase our literature be cause of the unorthodox and un healthy material it contains." Three reports on consolidation of the church's boards of benevolence were laid before the delegates near the close of the morning session. The discussion promised to be lengthy and it was voted to continue it at the opening of tomorrow's session.

United States ships, from battle ships to pile drivers, could be made defendants in legal action, under a hill by Representative Mills, Repub lican. New York, upon which a hear ing was held before the House ju diciary committee today. Judge Charles M. Hough, presi dent of the Maritime law Association of the United States, appearing in be j half of the bill, said it seems to cor ; red technical and moral defects of (the present law it would give the ; right to bring suits against the i United States as private suits are ; brought, without 'the necessity of ; passing a private bill through Con gress, as is now done. Judge Hough said. No vessel or cargo of the United Mates would be subject to arrest, nor would a bond be required, he explain ed- The rate of interest on damages would be limited to 4 per cent and the time of action would be confined to two years and war claims would be ruled out.

Among a dozen witnesses urging passage of the bill were maritime lawyers, tugboat men and owners of i vessels John Nicolson, counsel for the com mittee on legislation, and Arthur M. Bole, assistant admiralty counsel of the Shipping Board, conceded the ad visability of abandoning the present system of private bills in admiralty cases, opposed the bill as drawn, on the ground that it would impose obli gations on the United States not placed on individuals, by making gov ernment vessels liable to action in any district court. Mr. Bole said he feared suits might be brought for greater sums than the value of ves sels. BAN FREE "PUBLICITY.
