McADOO’S PLAN UNKNOWN, BUT BOLT IS DOUBTED Vice Presidential Candidate Com ing to D. C.—Mrs. Wilson Wires Congratulations. v By the Associated Press. NE"\\ \ORK, July 11.—After a good night’s rest at his country home, the first since the Democratic convention opened, John W. Davis today arose at 8 o’clock and left at 9:30 o'clock by motor from Locust Valley to New lock to tackle at once the problem of organization of the national commit tee and selection of a chairman to take charge of his campaign for the presidency. On arriving at the home of Prank L. Polk, former undersecretary of state. Mr. Davis had a long talk with Cordell Hull, the present chairman of the Democratic national committee and other party leaders. Plans Early Campaign. Organization of the new national committee probably will not formally take place until after the notifica tion ceremony, at which Mr. Davis will make his first public address on the issues of the election. But the nominee hopes to complete the de tails of organization of the party’s council within the next few days, since the protracted session of the convention has delayed the opening of the campaign beyond the custom ary time. He intends to get as early a start as possible, and if. as he ex pects, the choice of a chairman is made before the end of next week, Mr. Davis will then take a vacation of about a fortnight in New England. Mr. Davis ate breakfast overlook ing a sunny garden on his country place, then took a walk among his flowers, leading by the hand Dorothy Milstead, the four-year-old daughter of his superintendent. Devotee of Golf. At the Davis home, situated on a six-acre tract on a hill above Long island sound, were Mrs. Davis, Mrs. Phil Watson of Indianapolis, Mrs. Davis' sister and the nominee. Here Mr. Davis expects to spend a quiet week end and after today’s conferences, getting in a round or two of golf, as is his custom. From Mr. Davis’ only daughter, Mrs. William M. Adims, wife of the Co penhagen manager of the United States Rubber Company, came the following cablegram today: “Hearty congratulations; now go to it.” Gov. Charles W. Bryan of Nebraska, Democratic vice presidential nomi nee, left this morning for Atlantic City for a day’s rest before going to Washington and thence to his. home in Lincoln, Neb. Statement In Lincoln. ”1 can say nothing definite on my plans until after my arrival at Lin coln and until I have had opportunity to get my work there in shape,” Gov. Bryan said. "All my plans are con tingent on conditions in Nebraska and my fight against the oil trust there.” Mr. Bryan was accompanied by W. H. Thompson, national committee man from Nebraska. The nominee said he planned to go to Washington probably tomorrow and that he would leave for Lincoln early next week. All doubt about the attitude of "William Jennings Bryan toward the head of the ticket seems to have been dispelled by Mr. Bryan’s state ments that his support will be forth coming. Mr. Bryan and his brother, Gov. Charles W. Bryan of Nebraska, nominee for Vice President, dined last night with Mr. Davis at the Polk residence. McAdoo’s Role Uncertain. There remains some wonder as to the position of W. G. McAdoo in the campaign. The New York World to day prints a front-page story sug gesting that Mr. McAdoo may form another party, possibly with the aid of W. R. Hearst, whose newspapers have Indicated that the publisher is far from pleased with the choice of the Democratic convention. Mr. McAdoo has maintained silence since sending a telegram to Mr. Davis limited in effect to the words “Please accept my congratulations.” Some of Mr. McAdoo’s friends who doubt the suggestion of a bolt, point out that Mr. Davis has received by wireless the congratulations of Bern ard M. Baruch, a warm McAdoo sup porter in the convention fight; of Miss Margaret Wilson, Mr. McAdoo’s sister-in-law, and other active McAdoo partisans. Miss Wilson was presented to Mr. Davis yesterday by Mrs. J. Bordeii Harrlman, a McAdoo ■ upporter, and gave her congratula tions in person. New York papers are frankly skep tical of the attitude toward the na tional ticket of Mayor Hylan, who has had the constant support of Mr. Hearst, and some even suggest that a Smlth-Hylan battle for control of Tammany looms. Pick Headquarters Soon. Some political circles expect that New York will be the center of the Davis campaign.- With 266 electoral votes necessary for success and with Davis reasonably assured of 147 from the solid south, plus Maryland and Kentucky, according to these opin (Continued on Page 4.

TEAM SUFFERS BLOW DeHart Hubbard, Negro Star, Out of Hop, Step and Jump Due to an Injured Heel. By the Associated Press. OLYMPIC STADIUM, COLOMBKS, Prance, July 11.—Eric H. Liddell, the British flying parson, crowned him self Olympic 400-meter champion this afternoon in the world record time of 0.47 3-5, defeating Horatio Fitch, Chicago A. A., who had shattered tha previous world record an hour be fore in the semi-finals. The victory of Liddell In today’s only final event made the British to tal an imposing third among the point scores. The point scores follow: United States. 183%; Finland. 103; Great Britain, 60%; Sweden, 24 1-5; France. 13%; Switzerland, 11; Hun gary, 7%; Canada, 5; South Africa, 5; Norway, 4; New Zealand, 4; Den mark, 3%. Fitch won the first semi-final with a then new world record for the dis tance of 0.47 4-5. The old record was 0.48 1-5, made by Reidpath in 1912, but lowered one-ftfth of a second yesterday by J. Imbach, the fleet Swiss runner, who did the distance in 0.48 flat in am elimination heat. Aided by Brink Wind. Fitch, aided by a brisk wind down the stretch, which may affect consid eration of his time, flashed his whirl wind speed to defeat G. M. Butler of Great Britain and Johnston of Can ada, with Engdahl, the Swedish fa vorite, who forced Imbach to his daz zling pace yesterday, finishing fourth. Engdahl thus was eliminated from the event. The second semi-final In the 400 meters went to Lidell in 48 1-5 sec onds, equaling the world mark which stood until yesterday's performance by Imbach, who was a record holder for only twenty-four hours.

University of Southern Califor nia, made a poor showing, his time being 11 4-5, running lame. He was way down the list of forty-nine enr trants with 714 points for the first event. Anderson started in the decathlon competition with a bandaged ankle, the result of a sprain received in camp last week. He was obviously far below form and it was hardly ex pected he could complete the gruel ling test. Pulling up lame after the 100-meter race, he gamely tried the broad jump, but his performance was away below his best. The Scottish bagpipes of the Cam eron Highlanders performed between the events, their picturesque kiltie costumes and perfect unison gaining them an outburst of cheers. U. S. Team Qualifies. Finland laid the foundation for vic tory in the 3.000-meter team race when her stars finished one, two, three in the first heat of the trials, Nurmi, Ritola and Tala finishing in that order for a total of six points.

July 11.—The case of William H. Anderson, former state superintendent of the Anti-Saloon League, who is serving a term in Sing Sing prison for forgery, will be taken to the court of appeals soon, it was announced today by former Gov. Charles S. Whitman, Anderson's counsel. Mr. W'hitman said he desired to overcome the erroneous report that all hopes of Anderson’s vindication were lost when the appellate division of the Supreme Court unanimously affirmed his conviction. The argument on the appeal will be heard early in the fall, Mr. Whitman said. Anderson, who received a one to two year term, will be eligible for release December 24. 2 POLICE WIENFACE ASSAIIjJCHARGES Warrants Accuse W. E. Win field and John T. Joiner in Ambrose Case. For the first time in a long period Assistant District Attorney Ralph Given, on duty for many years at the Police Court, today issued warrants against two members of the police department on charges of assaulting a man they had arrested for disor derly conduct and whose case was dismissed, and who has satisfied Mr. Given that they—the policemen— cruelly assaulted their prisoner with their clubs and fists. The complain ant appeared in Mr. Given’s office to day with his head in bandages to protect the wounds to his head which he charges the officers inflicted with out provocation. The warrants issued are against Policemen W. E. Winfield and John T.- Joiner of the ninth police precinct. The prosecuting witness is Charles H. Ambrose, whom these officers ar rested on a charge of disorderly con duct. Happened on Fourth. This is an echo of the 4th of July celebration, when Policeman Winfield arrested his sister-in-law, Mrs. Gertrude Winfield, at her home, 1016 3d street northeast, for dis orderly conduct, because she inter ferred with the policeman for taking from her little daughter a toy pistol which the officer said the child had no right to have. Charles H. Ambrose, a roomer in Mrs. Winfield’s home, was seated on the porch of the place at the time the trouble arose between Policeman Winfield and Mrs. Winfield. He says that he had nothing to do with the trouble, but that both Policemen Winfield and Joiner roughly handled him, assaulted him with their clubs and fists and he bore every evidence of having been cruelly punished. Ambrose Is Acquitted. Ambrose was tried late yesterday aft ernoon on the charge of disorderly con duct and the case against him dis missed. He was represented by Attorney James A. O’Shea. A great volume of evidence was produced and there were two dozen or more witnesses heard, consuming the time of the court until 5 o’clock. It was testified that the policemen went out of their way to -roughly handle not only Ambrose, but knocked Mrs. Winfield down when she was holding an infant In her arms. She was painfully Injured. After the case has been disposed of In the court Mr. Ambrose and Mrs. Winfield say that they will prefer charges against the officers for trial before the police trial board. Steals Quarter; Gets Two Years'.

The Treasury today ordered sus pended all sales of Treasury savings certificates and stamps, effective July 15. Acting Secretary Winston said the present money market did not warrant the Treasury paying 4% per cent interest on the savings securi ties when funds may be obtained at much lower interest. Further sale of the certificates, it was announced, will be held in abey ance until conditions have changed. Call money was quoted at 2 per cent in the New York market yesterday and it was recalled at the Treasury' that the last Issue of Treasury cer tificates of Indebtedness was floated at a rate of 2% per cent. The savings certificates bear 4% per cent, compounded semi-annually, over a period of five years. £400.000,000 Oafstanding. More than J 400.000.000 In Teasury certificates now are outstanding. The first sales—in the form of war sav ings stamps—were made in 1918, but those have been retired and each subsequent year has seen a new issue. Almost $100,000,000 of the issue of 1924 have been sold. Sale of the certificates was sus pended in eighteen states last February 3, on account of the finan cial condition in some of the north west sections. Objection then was raised to the federal government continuing to take money out of areas where banks were failing and conditions generally were regarded as poor. . The savings certificates have, in the past, formed an important part of Treasury fiscal operations. Later in the war, the idea of promoting a nation-wide saving was worked out, and the war savings certificates made their appearance. Through the sale of twenty-five-cent stamps the Treas ury, In 1918, obtained more than $1,000,000,000 and this materially aid ed in financing the war. Later, 'the savings certificates succeeded the savings stamps, and they became an adjunct to the Treasury refunding operations, but their usefulness has steadily decreased as open money market rates have fallen.

CHICAGO, July 11. Russell Scott, former Toronto promoter, who turned bandit, got a chance for his life today when Circuit Judge Lindsay allowed him to withdraw his plea of guilty and enter one of not guilty to the charge of murder of Joseph Maurer, a drug clerk, in a hold-up. After Scott had pleaded guilty, on advice of his attorney. Judge Lind say indicated that he felt impelled to Impose the death penalty. A remarkable court scene fol lowed, when the attorney, realiz ing that his advice was about to result in the hanging of his client, broke into tears and pleaded with the court not to inflict death. Judge Lindsay replied that there were no mitigating circumstances. Scott’s counsel then pleaded for permission to withdraw the plea of guilty, and the granting of this plea today permits Scott to go to trial before a jury. Scott was captured after a hold up of the City Hall Pharmacy, op posite the city hall, last November, when Maurer, the clerk, was killed. A brother, John, also indicted, never has been apprehended. AMERICANYOUTH HANGEOINCANADA Walter Muir, Twenty-One, Goes to Gallows for Murder in Quarrel Over Dog. By the Asuociited Press. MONTREAL, July 11.—Walter Muir of New York was hanged at Valley fljeld, Quebec, early today for the murder of Henry Laviolette, last September. Muir shot Laviolette after a quarrel In a Valleyfield barroom. Laviolette. according to court testimony, had struck Muir's crony, a crippled man named Joseph Plant, during an ar gument over the merits of a hunting dog. Not until the noose was slipped was it certain that the sentence would be placed into effect, so unremitting had been the efforts of the Countess of Richelieu, Mrs. Walter Muir, the boy’s mother, and scores of other per sons to obtain a new trial. Even this morning efforts were being made to halt the execution. Writes to Mother. Muir was pronounced dead fourteen minutes after the springing of the trap. After the inquest the body was claimed on behalf of relatives In New York, where burial will take place. Before he walked to the gallows Muir wrote the following letter to his mother; “To my heartbroken mother, my poor mother; “How you must be suffering since my death; but you must be brave and remember I died a good Christian and in a state of grace. Always think of me, as I will be watching and praying over you until you join me In heaven. It was the will of God that I should leave this earth at this time. I am dying a happy death. I love you with all my heart, and will pray to God always for you. Good by, mother dear. May God bless you. Your loving son, Walter.” Quml Over Dog. Muir contended that when he drew his pistol duripg the quarrel with Laviolette, in the barroom, he only meant to scare the man. He fired two bullets into the floor, one of them glancing and striking Laviolette in the breast. A jury found Muir guilty and he was sentenced to hang last April. A reprieve was granted to permit of an appeal. The appeal was dismissed. It was then that Countess Riche lleu. formerly Miss Elinor Douglas (Continued on Page 2, Column 3.) Radio Programs—Page 15. ENGINEERS PLAN PARKEXTENSION Thirty Houses in Georgetown Will Come Down to Add to . Scenic Beauties. To permit the early improvement of certain areas in Rock Creek park way extending from the Potomac River to Rock Creek Park. Lieut. Col. C. O. Sherrill, executive officer of the Rock Creek parkway commission, plans for the removal of about thirty houses on ground recently acquired for the project. All the buildings have been vacated and will be razed shortly under contract with the Hechinger Wrecking Company. Included in the list is the old AqueducY building on the south side of Pennsylvania avenue near 28th street; the double buildings on M street between 27th and 28th streets; buildings Nos. 1108. 1116, 1118 and 1122 26th street between L street and Pennsylvania avenue; the building at No. 1323 24th street; buildings Nos. 2612 and 2618 Dumbarton street be tween 26th and 27th streets; the buildings numbered from 1229 to 1241 27th street, and the buildings num bered from 2310 to 2514 P street be tween 23d and 26th streets. The long signboard on the south side of P street, just west of the bridge, also is to be removed, to clear up the land scape. Engineer Clark of Col.

By the Associated Press.

It is stated they are in complete control of Sao Paulo and it is feared the movement may extend to all Brazil. Numerous rebels are reported marching toward the State of Parana, where, the dispatches say, it is be lieved they will be joined by the Parana State troops and others they meet during their advance. The movement is said to be headed by the famous Rio Grande leader. Col. Joao Francisco, who for some years has been commander of a bri gade of state troops stationed in Sao Paulo.

Lord. Hospital Fund Retained. The originaf estimates of the Com missioners for next year will carry the first request for funds for the extension of the park system by the newly created National Capital Park Commission, it wa« learned at the District building today. This is an entirely new activity, the commission having been created only a month ago, and will tend to swell further the number of worthy proj ects now before the city heads for consideration. The act creating the park com mission provided that Congress could be asked annually for an appropri ation for this purpose not in excess of 1 cent for each inhabitant of the United States. This would permit of a maximum estimate for park de velopment of slightly more than *1,000,000. 940.000,000 Asked. It is likely, however, that the Com missioners will not be able to ask for that much for next year, in view of the fact that the aggregate amount that has been requested by aJI de partment heads combined is in the vicinity of *10.000,000. This is more than the Commission ers will be able to submit to the budget bureau, and various unofficial predictions have been made as to the amount the city heads will recom mend. In some sources it has been sug gested the first total sent to Gen Lord will be *35.000.000. Others have placed the limit at *32,000,000. Al though all of the estimates are now being studied by the Commissioners no attempt has yet been made to add up totals, and. therefore, the Com missioners themselves are still some what in the dark as to what the fig ure will be. Many Items Cut. They have spent a week in cutting down individual items all through the budget, but whether they have elimi nated five million or seven million from the sums requested by bureau chiefs will remain in doubt until Maj. Donovan, auditor, gets to an adding machine and takes an account of the projects that have fallen under the pruning knife. Salary increases aggregating *3,- 000,000 and the necessity for seeking funds for the park commission are two factors the Commissioners did not have to reckon with when last year’s original estimates were being prepared. While the school estimates of *12,- 500,000 are due for a substantial re duction, other divisions also will have to take less than the sum for which they have asked. Will Seek 60-40 Restoration. The Commissioners, it is under stood, plan to leave in the first budget part of the *700,000 recommended by the health office for erection of a contagious disease building at Gal linger Hospital, so that the city will not have to make contracts with private hospitals in future. The act creating the Park Commis sion stipulates that the funds for that purpose shall be paid from the United States and District funds in the same proportion that all other expenses of the city are borne. Congress has temporarily laid aside the 60-40 ratio for the current year by substituting a lump sum of *9,- 000,000 from the federal Treasury, but Commissioner Rudolph has made it plain several times recently that the Commissioners intend to fight for the restoration of the 60-40 next year.
