IOWA IS PUZZLED
BY BREWER’S ACTION
Outcome of Independent Republi
can's Repudiation of Brookhart
Problematical.
By the Associated Preas.
DES MOINES, lowa. October 11.—
A new political turn developed yes
terday with the withdrawal from the
senatorial race of Luther A. Brewer
of Cedar Rapids, Republican inde
pendent candidate, who denounced
Senator Brookhart as a “deserter” ’of
his party and gave his followers and the
Democrats the campaign slogan “Sic
’em Steck,” urging them to support
Daniel F. Steck, the Democratic sen
atorial nominee.
Republican State headquarters de
clined last night to comment on the
day’s development. The party leaders
had frowned upon Mr. Brewer’s can
didacy when it was announced, and
said they did not wish to comment on
his withdrawal. Nor would they spec
ulate upon Its effect upon the elec
tion, declaring the extent of Brewer’s
following was problematical.
Mr. Steck, In recent campaign
speeches, has made a special appeal
to Republicans who dislike Senator
Brookhart’s repudiation of the. Cooi
idge-Dawes ticket. To this was added
the statement by Mr. Brewer that
Steck had taken “the right position”
on what he termed two of the chief
issues raised in the present campaign
—the authority of the courts and gov
ernment ownership of railroads.
The Brewer withdrawal was
prompted to some extent, politicians
here believe, by the criticism of Sen
ator Brookhart by Steck in a speech
at Burlington last night in which the
latter made public an affidavit credited
to A1 Fink of Buffalo, N. T., purport
ing to show irregular practices on
the part of the Daugherty investigat
ing committee, of which Brookhart is
the head. The implication has been
denied by the Senator.
Senator Brookhart’s comment on
Brewer’s withdrawal was:
"I am sorry to hear it. It shows
that the ‘stand-patters’ will not
stand together. I was in hopes
Brewer's candidacy would enable
them to take a census in the forth
coming election.”

died of a self-inflicted wound as
maintained. He declared that a gun

held it would not have left a powder
bum in the sleeves, as some wit
nesses said was on the sleeve on the

CHINATOWN GUARDED

After Murder of
Leader.
By the Associated Press.
NEW YORK, October 11.—The nar

are virtually under martial law,
guarded by 110 detectives, patrolmen
and bomb squad operatives against
further casualties in the tong out
burst of last Wednesday.

restaurant and reputed tong leader,
whose death by assassins’ bullets
heralded the renewal of the ancient

way toward a taxi bearing black bags
freighted with pistols, were being
questioned at police headquarter*
Peace loving Chinese merchants
and their non-tong compatriots
placed in Dr. Carlton Simon, deputy
commissioner in charge of rarcotw
squads, their hopes that further
bloodshed would be prevented. He
has consented to arbitrate the. latest
quarrel of the On Deongs and the

months ago at the time of the last

So ominous was the air in China
