Senator Wadsworth De
clares National Ticket Will
Sweep State.
President Coolidge was told by Sen
ator Wadsworth of New York today
that the Republican national ticket
would sweep that State In November
and that the chances of Col. Theodore
Roosevelt, former Assistant Secretary
of War. the Republican nominee for
governor, defeating Gov. AI Smith,
who is seeking another term, are es
pecially bright.
Gov. Smith is not the formidable
candidate he was two years ago. when
he received such a decisive vote, ac
cording to Senator Wadsworth. He
pointed out that many things have
happened since then, and as the sit
uation presents itself now. Gov. Smith
has lost considerable of his popular
appeal, lie said, however, that Gov.
Smith is by far the best candidate
the Democrats could have put up. and
had he not consented to run the State
election would have been a virtual
I.n FollcHe Hackers in City.
"Many people do not take to the j
idea of Gov. Smith being a candidate
for the fourth time," Senator V\ ads- |
worth saiti. Many think that the, two |
terms he has served as executive of
the Umpire State are sufficient, and ]
they want new faces at the State
Capital. Also. Gov. Smith received
many thousands _of Hi publican voles
two years ago. These went to him
principally because of his damp plat
form but he has done nothing sim-c
being elected on this platform that
would encourage the out and out
wets of the Slate, and they will fall
back to the Republican candidate
this ye. t r. Besides all this, many cit
izens of the State, conservative and
Democrats included, think the plat
form of Gov. Smith 100 revolutionary
to serve for the State in general.
There is some little La Kollette in
terest in the State," he continued,
"but it is confined almost entirely to
New York City and other larger
cities up State. Outside of the Dem
ocrats of New York City there appears
to be very little sentiment for John
j Davis.”
Arrange for Navy Day.
Senator Wadsworth's call at the
White House was primarily in the in
terest of the celebration being plan
ned for the observance of Navy day,
October 27. which also is the birthday
anniversary of the late President
Roosevelt. He was accompanied to
the White House by Walter Bruce
Howe, of this city, and Marion Kp
pley of Newport. R. 1., members of
the committee in charge of Navy day
celebration. Definite plans will be
announced later.
Republicans of Washington State
are not going to be led away from
their party's candidate by Senator let
Kollette, according to Col. C. B.
Bletham, newspaper publisher of
Seattle, who conferred with President
Coolidge today. He said Coolidge
would be elected by a large majority
if the election were held today.
Tells of Coast Prospects.
Col. Bletham is satisfied that
La Kollette's cause will be greatly
helped by a personal visit and that
the Republicans should be prepared
to meet the situation in the event
he decides to make a personal tom
paign in that section. For instance,
he looks upon Gen. Dawes as the
natural antidote for for such an in
vasion. Dawes, according to him, is
popular in that country and should
hold the Republican ranks together
despite the presence of the third
party candidate.
C. J. Mahoney, chairman of the
legislative board of the Brotherhood
of Railway Trainmen, and H, T.
Drew, ehairman of the legislative
committee of the Order of Railway
Conductors of Massachusetts, during
a brief talk at the White House to
day. assured the President that the
majority of the men from their
respective organizations wanted to
see him elected.

Defendants in Florida Indict

United States Commissioner Tur
. nage today discharged from custody
j .James K. Boudwin. Jr., one of the 15
| Washingtonians charged with con
spiracy to violate the national pro
hibition ait in an indictment report
ed by a grand jury at Tampa. Fla.
The commissioner held that young
Boudwin had offered testimony which
rebutted the prima facie case of
probable cause raised by the indict
ment-. He showed he did not know
of the alleged conspiracy and had no
knowledge of the presence of intoxi
cants in his father’s house. Commis
sioner Turnage held the other 14 men
for the action of the District Su
preme Court, to which United States
Attorney Gordon and Assistant United
States Attorney Burnett will apply
for an order of removal.
Habeas C.ir|nu> Writ Granted.
Those held by the commissioner
were immediately taken into custody
by deputy United States marshals and
detained at the courthouse while their
counsel prepared petitions for their
release on habeas corpus. Writs
were allowed hy Justice Siddons, and
the 14 men gave hail of SI,OOO each
to appear for a hearing on October 7.
In their application for writs of
habeas corpus the accused men at
tack the validity of the indictment,
which, they claim, is not properly
verified and does not sufficiently al
lege the commission of any offense
against the United States. They de
clare the indictment also fails to con
tain allegations sufficient to show
probable cause to believe the men
guilty of the offense and that no tes
timony to that effect was offered be
fore the commissioner. Their deten
tion by United States Marshal Sny
der is therefore declared to he illegal
Those held for removal to Florida

Get First Pay Under New
Salary Schedule in
Keller Bill.
I District public school teachers will
receive tomorrow their first checks
under the increased salary schedule
provided in the Keller salary bill. The
finance office of the school system
worked night and day to complete
the work of reclassifying the teachers
so that the pay checks could be is
sued on time.
Reallocation of the teachers under
the new salary scale gave the finance
office a tremendous task. Kvery teach
er in the school system as well as
the officers had to be reclassified.
Nchetlnle Explained.
In explanation of the new salary
schedule, Kupt. of Schools- Frank W.
Lallou Issued the following circular
letter, which was sent to all school
officers today:
“The payment of salaries for the
month of September will be made on
September 30, 1924. Supervising
principals and principals will secure
the checks from the disbursing officer
on that day at I pm.
“In order thai payment of salaries
of teachers might be expedited, it j
was impossible to make ail transfers:
between the schools and divisions on
the September pay roll. It is sug
gested that supervisory officers call
at the office of finance and account
ing before September 30, 1924, and
examine their respective pay rolls in
order to determine in advance the
disposition to be made of the checks
they will secure from the disbursing
"The salaries of all teachers as car
ried on the September pay roll have
been adjusted under the new salary
schedule on the basis of salaries re
ceived by them on June 30. 1924,
without regard to possible longevity
placing as provided in section 6 and
authorized in sections 4 and 5 of the
new schedule. Those teachers as
signed to class 1A receiving less than
SI,BOO, those teachers assigned to
class 2A receiving less than $2,000,
those teachers assigned to class 2C
receiving less than $2,300. those
teachers assigned to class 3A receiv
ing less than $2,300 and those libra
rians assigned to class 4A receiving
less than SI,BOO will be given an op
portunity to prove additional service
and to receive longevity placement.
Specific information relative to the
procedure to be followed to secure
this placement will be issued later,
"The deductions for retirement on
the September pay roll are in many
rases made at the maximum rate of
8 per cent, and adjustments to the
correct rate will be made on Ihe Oc
tober pay roll.
"Should any employe, except those
employes who may be entitled to fur
ther longeoity placement and adjust
ment under the provisions-.of the new
s-alary schedule referred to above
believe that the salary allowed is noi
in accordance with the provisions of
Hie new salary schedule, it is sug
gested that the matter be taken up
with the chief accountant. Mr. it. W.
