THINKS VETERANS IN LINEFOR DAVIS Chairman Shaver Also 'At tacks Coolidge for Delaying Action on Sugar Tariff. Clem D. Shaver, chairman of the Democratic national committee, in three statements given out at com mittee headquarters, predicted that veterans of the Civil and World Wars Mill support John W. Davis for the presidency; accused the Department of Justice of delaying the prosecution of Charles B. Forbes and criticized the President for failing to reduce the sugar tariff. The President. Mr. Shaver said in his first statement, apparently intends to delay action on the sugar tariff until after election, with a continuing heavy loss to the consuming public. Talks' of Forbes Indictments. Discussing the Forbes indictments, the chairman declared the Veterans’ Bureau frauds case brought against him in Maryland had been postponed until next January, and that brought in Chicago until November 24. Thus, ho said, the cases both had been "postponed at the instance of the Coolidge administration until after election.’’ "This effort of the Coolidge admin istration to prevent the trial of the Forbes cases in the closing days of i the campaign," he continued, is in di rect contradiction to the promises that President Coolidge gave the peo ple last February when he was mak ing a political speech before the Na tional Republican Club in New York. Referring to the numerous, instances of corruption in the administration then under public discussion. Presi dent Coolidge said: “There Mill be immediate, adequate, unshrinking prosecution, criminal and civil, to punish the guilty and to pro tect every national interest.’’ "Now the Department of Justice, whose head is a member of the Pres ident’s cabinet, on its own initiative and despite the objections of the at torneys for Forbes, has delayed the trial of this former Republican offi cial. (tjfes Probable Kxplanation. "The explanation is probably to be I found in the fear of the Republican I administration that the frightful i management of the Veterans’ Bureau will be revealed in the testimony. "President Coolidge could have pre vented the postponement of the Forbes trial in the court at Balti more. He had control, through his Attorney General, or the local dis trict attorney. But he is evidently not Milling in this specific instance to make good the promises he uttered in his political speech eight months ago.’’ Declaring that “three out of four service men and women of the World War and two out of three veterans of the Civil War,’’ are supporting John W. Davis. Mr. Shaver said in his third statement that thousands of dollars tvere being spent by the Re publicans "to develop a ‘Republican Service Deague’ and to win votes from I.a Follelte by attacking his Mar record.’’ Placing the Blame.
