SHERIFF AND DEPUTIES FIRED ON, HE ALLEGES i Shooting Is Outgrowth of Factional Strife Which Started Last February. By the PreiiK. HKRRIN, August 30. —While State troops patrolled the streets of Her rin tonight, following a renewal of Klan and anti-Klan rioting here to day, in which six men were killed and at least five wounded, one dan gerously. Sheriff George Galligan announced that armed klansmen were coming in from nearby .towns on every road. The dead are: Deputy Sheriff J. R. “Bud'’ Allison, Dewey Newbolt, Green Dunning. Chester Reid, Charles Willard and Otto Roland. The wounded are; Herman I’he mister, bailiff of the Herrin City Court, shot in the head, and critical ly wounded; Carl Shelton. Deputy Sheriff Ora Thomas, Charles Beuham and Harry Herrin. Follow* Murder Dismissal. , Renewal of the warfare which had died down in recent months started early this afternoon, shortly after State’s Attorney Delos Duty had dis missed the murder charges against the Shelton brothers. Carl and Earl, for the slaying of Constable Caesar Cagle, a Klansman, in rioting, last February S. Forty or fifty shots are said to have been fired. The shooting start • ed when Sheriff Galligan went to the J. B. Smith garage with two deputies on instructions from State’s Attorney Duty to seize the car alleged to have been used by the assailants of S. Glenn Young, Klan liquor raider, and his wife near OKawville, 111., last May 23. The only coherent account of the affair available was from Sheriff Gal ligan, a bitter opponent of the Ku Klux Klan. The sheriff said that as * he and Deputies Allison and Thomas entered the garage he noticed Dewey Newbolt, an alleged Klansfnan, sit ting in a chair with four guns strap ped to bis waist. One Bystander Killed. Galligan said Newbolt fired upon them and they returned the fire. The dead are all of Herrin and four of them—Newbolt, Dunning, Reid and Willard—are klansmen, accordiang to the sheriff. Roland was a bystander and was hit by a stray bullet. He died in the Herrin City Hospital, the same building riddled by bullets In the February riot. * Phemister was reported dying to night. A previous erroneous report said that he had died. Carl Shelton was shot through the hand. Sheriff Galligan declared he believed Newbolt fired the shot which wounded Shelton, but said the latter’s presence in the neighborhood seemed coincidental. The Shelton boys, he said, were Just preparing to drive to * East St. Louis following dismissal of the indictments against them. The dismissal came into Herrin City Court after a Jury had been selected but not sworn. The State’s attorney said he had insufficient evidence for prosecution. Tim Cagle, father of the slain con stable, made a dramatic statement to the court, in which he said he did not believe the Shelton brothers were guilty. Bitter Factional Strife. Bitter factional feeling resulting from continued law violations, the activities of S. Glenn Young ani his , adherents and strong klan and anti klan sentiment have kept the com munity in a state of more or less tur moil for several months. Today's trouble, it is conceded, is traceable to last February S, when Constable Cagle was killed and Depu ty Sheriff John Layman wounded. For several weeks prior to this the klan faction and the Knights of the Flaming Circle, an organization op posed to the klan, had been on the verge of open warfare. According to accounts of the Feb ruary outbreaks. Sheriff Galligan and Deputy Layman went to a hall in , Herrin in an effort, they declared, to prevent trouble at a meeting of the flaming circle. Reports that klansmen were at tempting to break up the meeting caused a riot during which Deputy Layman was shot. Charges were made by the faction opposing the Klan that Chief of Po lice John Ford and two Herrin police • men had fired at Layman and in the ensuing excitement it was reported that the Klan had assassinated Lay man. The killing of Cagle, an al leged Klan sympathizer, followed. Young Took Charge. Young, who was a dominant figure In Williamson County at the time, immediately proclaimed that the Klan would take control of Herrin and ordered the arrest of Chief Ford and his assistants. Militiamen were rushed.To the town and quiet re stored. later it was reported that Carl and Earl Shelton had fired the shots t which resulted in the death of Cagle. Subsequently both were indicted by a special grand jury of the Herrin City Court. Then followed a series of charges and counter charges, and finally the indictment of Young and 55 associates by the same grand jury. Young later left the county and with his departure matters quieted, but soon flared up again when news was received that Young and his wife were fired upon by assailants in another automobile near Okawvllle, 111., as they were driving toward East St- Louis, both receiving danger ous wounds, Mrs. Young suffering the loss of one eye. while Young's right leg was smashed Just below the knee by a bullet. Special deputy constables at Herrin, acting on advices that the car con < tatning Young’s assailants was en route to Herrin, blocked all roads leading into the city. Later an auto mobile near Herrin was raked by bullets. Jack Skelcher, a coal miner v (Continued on Page 6, Column 4.) AL SMITH FACES DILEMMA IN GUBERNATORIAL RACE * Victory of Republicans With Governor Candidate Would Spoil Fine Chance in 1928 Presidential Contest. BY N. O. MESSENCKB, Staff Correoponilent of The Star. NEW YORK, August 30.—Gov. Al fred E. Smith of New York is finding himself at present in one of the most difficult and perplexing situations of his political career. His friends realize, and he does himself, that he is at the crossroads of an important epoch, which may have serious bear ing upon his political future. The question which hs is now considering and will soon be called upon to de cide. is whether he should accept a renomination for the governorship at the possible cost of seriously affect ing his chances for the presidency in 1928. For, notwithstanding his de feat for the nomination in the New York convention and the expressed determination there of the Democratic party not to consider him avail able as a presidential candidate, the governor’s friends still believe that he may have another look-in with a different conclusion four years hence. The considerations which work upon Gov.

NEW YORK, August 30. —Bucky Harris’ aggregation was nosed out by the Yanks this afternoon in a brilliant pitching duel between Waite Hoyt of the local club and Warren Ogden of the Nationals. Ogden al lowed the New Yorkers only five safeties, while the Harris outfit got eleven off Hoyt, but the world cham pions bunched a couple of blows most effectively In the ninth and chased across the run needed for a 2-to-l victory. Wally Pipp, Schang with the same first name as the Yankee first sacker and Bob Meusel did the work that upset the Bucks in the final frame of the fray. The elongated Yank who used to play for the Catholic Uni versity In his college days, began the ninth with a single' to center and Schang sacrificed, Ogden to Harris. Then Meusel, who had not been shin ing brightly In this series, poled out a one-base blow to left, tallying Pipp with the decisive counter. It was a well fought game from start to finish with the Bucks displaying the same fighting spirit they have shown since invading New York and the Yanks showing more pep than In the past two games. Ogden hurled very good ball, but so did Hoyt. The Bucks hit the latter freely, but not when wal lops meant scores.

DAWESANDBRYAN FRIENDLYENEMIES Two Vice Presidential Nomi nees Talk Over Old Days Amiably in Lincoln. By the Associtted Press. LINCOLN, Nebr., August 30.—The vico presidential nominees of the two old parties—Charles G. Dawes, Republican, and Charles W. Bryan, Democrat—met here today, renewed an acquaintance formed 30 years ago in this city and parted as friends. Discussion of politics did not enter into the unusual meeting, which took place in Gov. Bryan’s office at the Nebraska State capitol and which lasted 15 minutes. There was an ex change of reminiscences, some talk about the growth of Lincoln since the early nineties, and the recollec tion of some amusing incidents in their lives as residents of this city. The nearest approach to politics cajne when they were saying good bye. Mr. Bryan said; "Well, General, I wish you success in all your future efforts and undertakings except at the election in November.” Mr. Dawes laughingly expressed his thanks. Meeting I* Arranged. The meeting between the two came about through what amounted to a mutual agreement. Gov. Bryan, in a statement issued yesterday on the arrival of his opponent in Lincoln to deliver a campaign address, expressed the hope that the Nebraska capital would give Mr. Dawes a cordial wel come and declared he hoped he would have an opportunity to meet the city’s visitor. Mr. Dawes read the statement and then announced he would call on Gov. Bryan before re turning to Evanston. Newspaper men acted as messen gers with the result that at 11:30 o’clock today Mr. Dawes walked briskly into the capitol building into the executive offices and found Mr. Bryan standing in the doorway, ready to welcome him. The governor’s secretary attempted a formiß intro duction but was cut short by an ex clamation from Gen. Dawes: “Well, Governor, how are you?” Laugh at Old Time*. “Hello, General, 1 am glad to see you,’’ was Gov. Bryan’s reply, and with that he led his caller Into his office, drew up a chair, and soon they were talking and laughing together like any pair of old friends.

As he reached the fourth floor the tube parted and he fell, narrowly missing spectators on the pavement. body has not yet been recovered. Police had been warned during the morning that the young man was planning to make the plunge which he hoped would bring him fame and employment with the movies. The bridge was guarded, and when he stepped out of a taxicab in the middle of the span, and mounted the rail, a policeman was not more than 50 yards from him. Shouting, the policeman ran to prevent PoccolU from carrying out his suicidal venture, but PoccolU only hurried the more. Witnesses declare that if he had not been in such haste, he might have dived more carefully and struck the water, not on his stomach, as ho did, but first with hands out stretched to break the impact. Six men from the Pathe and In ternational News services, who had chartered a tug to watch the dive, were taken to police head quarters and questioned.

DORTMUND EVACUATION IS ORDERED BY FRENCH Five Weeks Allowed in Program for Preliminary Arrange ments. R.v the Amutclati-d Trees. PARIS. August 30.—-The Dawes plan really became operative at noon today with the formal appointment of Owen D. Young as agent general, although technically and legally the allies’ latest attempt to get repara tions from Germany will date from Monday, September 1. when the rep aration commission will announce that Germany has passed the required laws and that the Germans and allies have signed the agreement of Lon don. Mr. Young got info action im mediately and started his assistant, Leon Frasier, to Berlin, giving him 48 hours in which to get to the Ger man capital and open his office. Evacuation Ordered. The evacuation of Dortmund and the surrounding area has been or dered by the French government. In conformity with Premier Herriofs promise to the German chancellor, but the actual departure of he soldiers will wait on the civil serv ices, which have long been installed and may take two or three weeks to turn over their affairs to the Ger mans were necessary, and shut up shop as far as concerns Franco- Bel gian control of the mines and factories and general supervision of civil af fairs. The cessation of economic control of the Ruhr and the delivery of the complicated railroad system to the Germans will take several weeks. The London agreement contemplated that the first step should be taken August 15 and specified the. dates on which each stage must be completed, but authorized the reparation com mission to hasten or delay the dates, according to circumstances. Septem ber 1 will be the first date, and eight days later the French and Belgians must cease collecting customs be tween occupied and unoccupied Ger many. Twelve days afterward, or by September 21, the French and Bel gians must have removed the restric tions on all traffic between the occu pied and unoccupied regions, and they must restore various charges on the population and regulations as they exist in Germany proper. Fire Week*’ Preliminaries. The Rhineland and Ruhr railroad, however, will continue to apply Its present tariff, as the profits from it go into the reparation fund adminis tered by Mr. Young. The plan gives five weeks for the completion of nil preliminary arrange ments,. such as forming an organiza tion for creating a bank of issue, or ganizing a new railroad company, depositing railroad and Industrial se curities with the Dawes plan officials and the negotiation of a contract as suring an 800.000.000-mark loan. The French and Belgians within two weeks thereafter, or by October 20, must restore the economic and fiscal unity of Germany to the satisfaction of the reparation commission. Mu*t Make Up Deficiencies. The actual collection of reparations will begin immediately, the Germans paying 20.000.000 marks Monday, and the Franco-Belgians turning over their collections 10 days later to Mr. Young. Germany must make up any deficiency in collections, so that the agent general eaqh month will re ceive one-twelfth of the annual repa ration payment to the allies. Agent General Young and the other officials appointed by the reparation commission. M. Delacroix of Belgium, Signor Nogara of Italy and Andre MacFadyan of England, will go to Berlin Wednesday ready to begin operations, and the reparation com mission in the meantime will com plete the organization of the person nel and ratify the various appoint ments. Most of the staff will be drawn from the commission itself and the expenses of that body will be trimmed so that the experts* plan will not add any expense for Ger many. Franace’s relief at the final adop tion of the experts’ plan is somewhat clouded by what Paris thinks is the ominous attitude of the Nationalists, for they consider that Dr. Marx and the German government have surren dered to the reactionary forces and they foresee disagreeable conse quences. All agree that the German chancellor’s disavowal of German war guilt Is dangerous, and the In transigeant demands an allied reply. The inclusion of Nationalists in the German cabinet, the Journal des Debates predicts, means “the ultimate sabotage" of the Dawes plan, and the Temps regards their presence in the government as likely to be consid ered "an abuse of confidence’’ by the bankers who are expected to float a German loan. The Nationalists’ maneuvers here tofore have been taken calmly, but the fact that they made the Marx government compromise with them has created a good deal of alarm, as indicating that the reactionaries have greater power than they have been credited with.

This Is the second successive season Prince Henry has been spending partly at the Buocleuchs' Scottish seat, and his stay there has been more in the nature of private visits to friends than of the formal visits of a prinoe. In the normal course of events it is considered that Prince Henry probably will marry at no distant date.

An intensive drive will be launched this week by officials of the various hospitals and charitable institutions in the District to dispose of 40,000 tickets for the massed concert of the Army, Navy and Marine Bands at the American League Ball Park September 14. The entire proceeds will be used to purchase radio re ceiving sets for institutions which have not yet installed such apparatus for the entertainment of its inmates. Tickets for the concert will be placed on sale Tuesday at all t’eoples drug stores. Box seats will be sold at the Mode, 1012 P street. Confident of Success. Leßoy Mark, who conceived the idea of the massed band concert as a method of raising funds to equip the institutions with radio apparatus. Is sanguine that every ticket will be sold. He has informed radio enthu siasts of his plans through WCAP and has appealed to them to purchase tickets in order that the unfortunate sick and invalids in hospitals and charitable institutions may enjoy the entertainment that radio provides. During the past week Mr. Mark has held conferences with officials ot the institutions, mapping out plans for the concerted ticket-selling cam paign. It is estimated that J 40.000 will be needed to equip all of the Institutions with radio sets and vir tually every seat in the ball park will have to be sold to realize this sum. The date for the massed concert was originally planned for the night of September 19, but was changed to the aftemoon of September 14 to save the expense of wiring the ball park for the electric lights. The concert, according to present plans, will be the most elaborate ever staged in Washington, eclipsing that given at the ball park during the Shrine convention when John Philip Sousa, the famous bandmaster, wielded the baton. Sousa may come to Washington to conduct the radio fund concert. FIVE PERISH IN STORM. Bodies of English mountain Climb ers Found in Alps.

FEW OF THOUSANDS SEE HIM GOING TO MANSION Luncheon and Informal Reception With Coolidges Only Activity of Prince Here. Through tremendous crowds that cheered and waved a warm welcome the Prince of Wales went to the White Hou«e yesterday, had luncheon with the President and Mrs. Coolldgc, met most of the members of the Cabi net and their wives at an informal reception and unostentatiously left the city, all within a trifle more than two hours. It was the prince's second visit to the National Capital and the ex tremely democratic manner in which ho came, was received and departed makes his call perhaps the most un usual one that the crown prince of a great empire has ever paid to the capital of a great foreign nation, par ticularly while traveling under his full title. Followed Prince’s Wishes. The utter lack of ceremony, how ever, was a result not only of the prince's own urgently expressed wish, but also of the fact that the Presi dent and Mrs. Coolidge are still in mourning for their son Calvin, jr., who died less than two months ago. The only unfortunate feature of the prince's reception was the fact that more than half of the admiring thou sands who lined Pennsylvania avenue to shout a greeting failed to get even a glimpse of the heir apparent to the throne of Great Britain. The automobile sent from the White House for "his use had the top up. On the return trip to Union Sta tion the top of the car was lowered, but his royal highness departed somewhat more than half an hour before the announced hour and as a result the crowd that waited for his passage was nowhere near as large as the one that stood in a sweltering sun, waiting patiently for his arrival. Crowd Packs Station. Two hours before the royal visitor's train was expected to arrive, most of the points of vantage In Union Station were occupied. Every minute the crowd there Increased in size until the east end of the grand con course. through which his royal highness was to pass was packed to capacity and the anxious throng extended all the way down the bronze grating that separates the concourse from the trainshed. Outside, the scene was one of even more intense enthusiasm. The Presi dent’s entrance had been reserved for the use of the prince, and the east end of the Union Station Plaza was banked with a seemingly endless line of humanity that extended up Dela ware avenue to the Capitol, down to the Peace Monument, and continued in an unbroken line out Pennsylvania avenue to the gates of the White House. And there a score of police men had charge of the largest crowd of all. Secretary of State Hughes was given a hearty welcome when he ar rived at Union Station a few minutes before 1 o'clock to formally welcome the prince to Washington in the name of the American Government. With him was an attache of the British embassy. It was exactly 1:05 o’clock when the prince's train came to a standstill in the train shed, five min utes’ late. His royal highness was standing on the observation platform with members of his suite and step ped off immediately. Cheers All Along Route. Secretary Hughes and the prince shook hands warmly. Then, closely followed by the members of his suite who had accompanied him from Long Island, the prince was escorted to his car. His first appearance in the con course was the signal for an outburst of cheers and applause that never sub sided until the big iron gates of the White House grounds clanged behind him—the first time, incidentally, that the gates were closed for years.
