BRIBERY CHARGED
AGAINST OFFICIALS
Building Inspectors Accused
of Accepting Money to
0. K. Elevators.
■William I. Evans and Frank T.
Vermillion, employes of the District
Building Inspector’s office, were in
dicted today by the grand jury on
charges of bribery and extortion in
conncetion with the inspection of
freight elevators in commercial
houses. A separate indictment for an
alleged additional offense was report
ed against Evans.
The first indictment alleges that
September 15. 1923, the two inspec
tors looked at the elevator on the
property of John H. .Miller at 1723
G street northwest and he was in
formed that repairs had to be made to
the lift. They are said to have accepted
and extorted from Miller a check for
S3OO with' the intent not to make
an honest inspection and a title re
port of conditions to Building In
spector Oehmann.
The second indictment asserts that
Evans received SIBO from Oscar H.
Robey on another occasion not to re
port the actual condition of the ele
vator in the building at 1429 L street
northwest. This money was also ex
torted from Robey, it is claimed.
Prison breach is charged in an in
dictment reported against Frank K.
Porter and Paul White, who are al
leged to have smuggled into jail four
steel saws inclosed in a book brought
by Porter to Ralph P White, a pris
oner in the jail, who is a son of Paul
White. The trick was discovered and
the father and his alleged accomplice
arrested.
Ttvo Accused of Murder.
The first indictment charging pre
meditated murder in the first degree
ever to be returned in this District, as
the result of a traliic killing was re
ported today against Vernon S. Story
and James O'Connor.
They are alleged to have deliber
ately run down with an automobile
Charles F. Jarvis, causing his death,
November 16, on Keane lane near
Eighteenth street and Kenning road
northeast. The death penalty may be
Inflicted in the event of a conviction
Under this indictment.
Manslaughter is charged against
Charles E. Cooper, colored, a pupil at
Armstrong School, at First and 1’
■troets, who is said to have caused
the death of another pupil, Edward
W. Robinson, September 25. The
tragedy was the outgrowth of a dis
pute over the occupancy of a seat in
the classroom.
The grand jury ignored a charge
of homicide against Ben Lust and
Harry Levy in connection with the
death of Anna Wilson, who fell down
an elevator shaft at the Mather Build
ing. They also ignored a homicide
charge against William Mclntlre and
Irvin R. Sweeney, attendants at St.
Elizabeth's, charged with causing the
death of William Green. a patient at
the hospital. Homicide charges were
also ignored against Alexander Ba
niski, David I»ee, William Adams and
Urban A. F. Cosh.
Others Are Indicted.
Others indicted, and the charges
against them, are: Harry G. Trua

maneuvers just outside of Rome, execut
ing a sham attack on the city. They
were subsequently congratulated by the
new generalissimo, Gandolfo, and later
paraded through the city.
Exceptionally heavy cordons of sol
diers are surrounding the principal op
position newspaper offices and the Grand
Orient, a Masonic lodge. There have
been no outbreaks as yet, and the city
has a normal aspect.
The minister of education, Casati, has
resigned, and Minister of Public Works
Sarrochi is reported to have resigned,
though the report is as yet unconfirmed.
They are Liberals of the Right and fol
lowers of Salandra, who is the only Lib
eral leader who has been supporting the
government in recent weeks.
For several weeks the rumor had been
current that he intended to withdraw
his support. Tliis \\ as definitely con
firmed on Saturday, when he did not ap
plaud the premier's speech made In Par
liament The resignation of the Liberal
members of the government then ap
peared to be only a matter of time.
Hold* Bare Majority.
This makes the political situation,
which had been tense, even more
critical All the organized political
groups in the country are now in the
opposition. The Fascist government,
however, still retains a bare majority
of the deputies, thanks to the recent
electoral law.
What is the solution of this im
passe? The public recalls the pre
mier's ominous words uttered in Sat
urday’s speech “when two contenders
disagree, the Issue must be decided
by force.”
The Fascist groups throughout the
country have received his words as
a call to battle, and the great gath
erings of Black Shirts in many cities,
although they were ostensibly for
peaceful purposes, are aparentiy in
tended to impress the nation with the
Fascist strength.
On Sunday strange placards were
posted in the arcades near the par
liament building. They were crudely
scrawled and demanded that the ene
mies of fascism be hung.
Undoubtedly, the premier's threat
ening words in Saturday's speech and
the order permitting the local pre
fects to mobilize the militia were In
tended to satisfy the Black Shirts,
who have been openly defying the
minister of the interior’s orders pro
hibiting political meetings and who
have been threatening the premier
with opefi revolt unless he took
“strong measures.”
It is still a question whether these
threats will be followed with deeds
and whether the Black Shirts will he
restrained within legal limits. It is
also questionable whether the min
ister of the interior, Federzoni, can
retain his office in the face of the
open defiance of his orders.
On the other hand, his resignation
would constitute! the g«cav*«t menace

duction, systems of transportation—
every one of these as we know them
t or as our ancestors have known them
from long before history began to
write its records, have been nothing
i more or less than co-operations. There
i could be no civilization without co- ,
r operation. To charge that any par- I
j ticular people lacks in capacity for
A co-operation is to charge that It has
not been civilized. To allege that
against the American people is to
t deny all of the obvious facts about
country. It is to deny the existence of
. (he States and their co-operation in the
; Federal Union. It is to reject all the
manifest truths of everyday experience.
t America has accepted and adopted eo-
I operation far in excess of any other
. nation.
, “But it is urged that fanners,
somehow, are different; that their
mode of life and work makes co
operation harder to effect. This is not
, the fact. Farmers in other countries
co-operate successfully, as do many
communities of them in our country.
1 undertake to say that a study of
the successful agricultural co-opera
tions in this- country, and along with
it an equally fair and inclusive ex
amination of the numerous failures
in the same field, will demonstrate
that co-operation has just as good a
. chance in America as anywhere else.
. In the past, it is true, there has been
no such pressure for It here as in
I less favored countries.
! ttnd I.ittle Need Before.
■ "Fo long as the great majority of
farmers were making a good living
from their year-by-year production
and at the same time laying by
, fortunes in the increase of their land
| values there was little need for ex
' periments in co-operation. But with
, the epoch of litgh taxes, high wages
and increased cost of living that
came with the war, the increase of
* land values to unprecedented figures
has become rather a liability than
• an asset. It there had been no war,
i with its urge for increased produc
tion, we would by this time prob
, ably have quietly entered upon a
new phase of our agricultural ex
perience, wherein we would ha\e be
came an importer rather than an
» exporter of most farm products. In
I that situation our farmers would
I have been able to increase their
prices to a level commensurate with
the scale of wages, living costs and
, general economic conditions of the
country Whenever we become an
, agricultural importing country that
I will be the effect. But there will be
a transition period, marked by al
| ternations of exporting and import
ing, during which we may expect
at times violent and wide fluctua
, tions in prices.
“In such a period it will be of espe
cial advantage to the farmer to be
able to hold his products for the most
advantageous market. To be com
pelled to sell hurriedly will involve
' danger of serious losses; to be able
1 to hold will be the best protection
from such losses. So it is particularly
I to be desired that our agricultural
marketing organization be placed as
* soon as possible on a basis of the ut
most stability and security. This, I
' am convinced, we shall best accom
' plish by developing the broadest and
5 soundest programs of co-operative
1 marketing.
t Confidence in Program.
“Firmly as I believe in this pro
- cedure and unqualified as is my con
i fidenee in the ability of our farming
- community to formulate and adminis
• ter such a program, I want to make
. plain that I am no blind believer in
any magical attributes of the co
, operative proceeding. A good deal
that is positively mischievous has
; been put about in this regard. There
■ is a school of co-operators who seem
■ to believe that the program can be
' started at the top and built downward.
, They want the Government, or the
banks, or philanthropies, or Provi
i denee to lay out a scheme big enough
; to cover the country, set its machinery
f moving, guarantee it all needed capi
. tal, and then invite the farmers to sit
■ in the places reserved for them and
■ proceed to garner their profits. Let
me say that I offer no such Aladdin
like project. I want society as a
whole to help; but I want the farmers
to do their share, and I warn them
that this will be the lion's share.
“Co-operation must start from the
, soil. It must have Its beginnings in
small and modest units. It must train
the people who are to use it to
- think co-operatively. That will be a
process requiring time and attended
with failures. As the people learn
the lesson their particular projects in
’ co-operation will gain strength, will
command increasing confidence, will
expand the benefits to their members.

men in all parts of the country
founded other sections of it. It is
hardly conceivable that any of these
men in the early and formative years
could have visioned the enormous
concentration to which their activi
ties were tending. They were not
thinking of that. They were found
ing the industry in all its branches
and ramifications, in all parts of the
country, in a vast variety of cor
porate forms. These widely scattered
and seemingly unrelated units at last
were brought together under a com
mon control into a unity of manage
ment and policy. But let it be em
phasized again—the industry had to
lie founded before it could be fed
erated. The units required creation
before they could adopt combination.
“It will be the same in the develop
ment of a great fabric of marketing
co-operations. They must begin with
small things anil must have the sin
cere. courageous, determined support
of their members. Granted that much,
they can lie quite safely relied on to
take care of themselves. Their
greatest danger is in too ambitious
beginnings, too eager expectations,
which breed early disappointment and
discouragement. The record of fail
ures in combiation is larger than the
record of successes. But so, for that
matter, is the record of failures in
nearly any other field. On the other
sid« is the impressive showing' of
successes, whereby industries, com
munities. regions, have derived vast
benefits from the development of co
operative efforts It is not needful
to enoumerate these cases in this
presence; the men and women are here
who know them bettfr than I, be
cause they have contributed of their
talent and courage to make these
accomplishments possible.
Will Not Work Themselves.
“To precisely such men and women
as you who are gathered here we
must turn for the kind of agricul
tural leadership the country needs-
We want combination preached as a
principle, not a panacea. It will not
perforin miracles. It will not accom
plish the impossible. But it is a
sound, tried, demonstrated principle
that must be introduced at the basis
of our agricultural establishment. It
demands that the individual shall
surrender some part of his complete
independence for his own and for the
general good. It means that a cer
tain authority must be delegated, and
when delegated it must he supported.
There must be faith, good will, pa
tience. It must be understood that
no very spectacular achievements
will be wrought The co-operative
association, which establishes grade*
and standards, encourages the good
and eliminates the poor varieties, in
creases the efficiency of production,
provides a unified product adapted to
its market, organizes its distribution,
creates confidence in its products and
its methods—that kind of an associa
tion is doing the best that co-opera
tion can do. It will serve both the
seller and the buyer. Under wise
leadership it will succeed. More than
anything else, we need a generation
of farmers trained to co-operation;
and to get that we need able, cour
ageous. determined leadership, and.
most of all, leadership that will not
desert the farmer, but will stay by
him
“Be-lieving that you who are as
sembled here today are preculiarly
the representatives of that leader
ship, I extend to you niv greeting,
and T commend to your most careful
consideration the supremely impor
tant set of problems to which you
have dedicated this occasion and

FOREIGN CONTROL
OF NITRATES MAKES
SHOALS USE VITAL
(Continued from First Page.)
avoid having to put up a big guaran
tee on one side or the other.
Department of Commerce reports have
shown how this country is now at the
mercy of a Chilean combine, hacked by
British capital, for Its supply of nitrates
The price is fixed, as was shown re
cently when more nitrate lands in Chile
were sold and a condition of sale was
that tiie nitrates must be sold at a
price fixed by the combination.
<'heap Process Vital.
For manufacture of munitions for
war times and for manufacture of
fertilizers in times of peace, we
must have i cheap process of making
nitrates. One deplorable feature of
(tie whole Muscle Shoals problem is
that the farmers have been led to
believe that they are going to get an
abundance and even a superabund
ance of cheap fertilizers at only a
fraction of Uk- present cost. This is
a pitiable hoax. Cheaper fertilizers
still are far off.
< hilean nitrates are now selling in
the United iStat.-s for something like
S4S a ton. The Chilean producers
can take a drop of S3O to $35 a ton,
reports received by the Department
of Commerce show. The American
manufacturer must he prepared to
meet such a drop—must find a pro
cess that will make it possible for
him to manufacture at something
like $lB a ton, because to drive an
American manufacturer out of busi
ness the Chilean crowd is ready to
make that tremendous cut. The best
*he American manufacturer can do
now. by the present processes, is to
produce nitrates at $65 or S7O a ton.
So the need for earnest work to de
velop a cheap process is obvious.
President Sees Need.
President Coolidge, after confer
ences with his cabinet, is wide awake
to this situation. It is thoroughly
agreed that the Government must go
vigorously after the development of
synthetic nitrates. It might subsi
dize some one to work out this pro
cess on a commercial scale—if it had
any guarantee that the necessary
$10,000,000 or $20,000,000 or $40,000,000
would actually be spent In the at
tempt. It is pretty certain, the
President's advisers say. that private
capital will not make the gamble, so
the Government itself must do that.
Now the lie at the Government can
do is to demonstrate on a commer
cial scale that cheap manufacture of
nitrates is possible, and then private
capital will be only too glad to take
up the new manufacturing process.
But this demonstration cannot be
made in a laboratory. It must be
done on a large scale operation to
demonstrate tiie commercial practica
bility. Private industry is unwilling
to put $10,000,000 or $15,000,000 into
such an experimental plant.
Ha* Expert on Subject.
But tIU- Government has the plant
at Muscle Shoals and has a labora
tory now doing fixed nitrogen ex
perimentation and research under
the best authority in the country on
this subject, Dr. Frank G. Cottrell.
\\ hat could be more logical than
to turn the .Tuscle Shoals plant over
to Dr. Cottrell to work out a cheap
nitrate process—using the income
from the Muscle Shoals power finance
the scientific search?
White House conferences have
shown that the administration has
been for some time leaning strongly
in this direction.
The situation in the Senate has
come to such a pass that it is quite
evident that the only proposal that
can get through is to turn the prob
lem over to an expert commission
with power to act in disposing of the
Muscle Shoals property'.
The Jones bill, introduced on De
cember 16, recognized this chance
for action. It proposes a commission
of three, including the Secretary of
War, the Secretary of Agriculture, and I
a third expert not in the Government
employ, to be appointed by the Presi
dent, who would make recommenda
tions to Congress on the best disposi
tions of these properties.
There are many who hope that
Congress will authorize the President
to appoint a commission of experts
with authority to make disposition of
the Muscle Shoals properties without
coming hack to Congress to thresh
out the terms. It is argued that this
would lie the wisest course because
the intricate problem could then be
handled by a group of men who could
give consideration to the economic
phases of the situation —which are
the controlling factor —free from any
political pressure. This is something
that Congress cannot do.
If Congress carries out this plan,
which has the administration's sup

procedure—which has already been
considered favorably by the Presi
dent's advisers in general terms —will
be something like this:
The properties at Muscle Shoals use
ful In the production of power to be
segregated from those useful in the
production of nitrates, and each group
to be subject to separate disposition.
The properties useful in the produc
tion of power, to Include Wilson dam
and power houses, the land upon which
they are constructed, the lands wtthin
the reservoir site, sufficient additional
land for auxiliary structures, such as
switching substations, the 60,000 kva.

plant No. 2, adequate land in connec
tion therewith, and the right to use
the waters of the Tennessee River for
power development at Wilson dam
and for operation of the steam plant.

The hydro properties to be licensed
for a period not exceeding 50 years
under the provisions of the Federal
water power act, in the same manner
as other “government dams.” The •.
title to properties built or acquired
by the United States to remain in the :
United States.
The steam plant either to be leased 1
or to be sold, preferably the latter, ;
to the licensee of the hydro proper

it can produce may he employed in j
•building up the primary power for •
the hydro plant.
The nit rate properties to lie leased j

guarantees of continuous operation
in the production of nitrates or other
products and for the maintenance of
tlie properties in adequate condition
for the production of nitrates In

plants to be maintained in a stand- j
by condition, or operated directly by
the United States, or otherwise dis
posed of as conditions may warrant.
In order to insure distribution of
power generally throughout the
South, the. hydro properties would
preferably be leased to a corpora
tion jointly financed and owned by the
Southern utilities companies.
In order that an adequate supply
of power may be available for thq
operation of the nitrate properties,
the license issued for the hydro[
properties should contain a reserva
tion for purposes of such operation
of 500,000,000 kwt. hours of electric
energy per annum, such energy to be
delivered In blocks on reasonable
notice, and at a price not greater
than that at which similar amounts
are sold to any other purchaser, ap- j
