GREEN MAY SETTLE HEOISPUTE International Conclave Hears Workers Describe Abuses in Illinois. Br the Associated Press. INDIANAPOLIS. Ind.. March 13. Delaying official action against the Illinois insurgent group until mine workers from District 12 have related their stories of alleged abuses by dis trict officers, the United Mine Workers of America entered the fourth day of their thirty-first consecutive conven tion today, with the floor open to any delegate wishing to discuss Illinois mine affairs. Disciplinary Action Expected. At the end of these discussions the convention is expected to vote on a committee report calling for “disciplin ary action” on the Illinois insurgents meeting at Springfield, which, it is be lieved, may lead to the expulsion of all those union members attending the rump session. Announcement yesterday that Wil liam Green, president of the American Federation of Labor, will address the session here Monday brought the pre diction by delegates and officers that the federation head will reveal the organization’s attitude and probable action regarding John H. Walker, pres ident of the Illinois Federation of La bor, who is alleged to have been active in calling the Illinois meeting. The international board of the Mine Work ers two weeks ago demanded that the National Federation take act on against Walker. It was learned yesterday that Green already has sent a telegram to Walker demanding that he explain his atti tude. Green, it is understood, has the authority to remove Walker, or to suspend the entire Illinois federation from the national organization. John L. Lewis, international president of the miners, contends that, since the union is a supporting factor of the National Federation, the latter must protect the union by taking action against Walker. Workers Take Platform. The attacks on the Illinois insurgents, which opened with Lewis’ bitter de nunciation Tuesday of the leaders of the rump session, brought additional charges yesterday from the mine work ers themselves, who took the platform to recite their grievances. The actions of Walker, Frank Far rington, former president of the Illinois district; Alexander Howat. president of the Kansas union and of the rump con vention; A. C. Lewis, general counsel for District 12, and others were assailed. Delegates charged theft of union funds, purchase of union elections, beatings and shootings. John T. Jones, provisional president of Subdistrict 9 of District 12, related how he had received threatening letters “too obscene to read here” telling him to leave after his appointment. "Chicago gangland is decent com pared with conditions in Franklin County and Springfield.’’ he said. Roy Groves of West Frankfort, HI., told the convention that he saw his son shot down during an election and that he was beaten so badly that he was an Invalid for several weeks. CONTINUES EFFORTS. Farrington Denies “Sell Out” Contract With Peabody Coal Co. SPRINGFIELD, 111., March 13 UP) Frank Farrington, former Illinois head of the United Mine Workers of America, today continued his efforts for recog nition in the insurgent convention of union men opposed to John L. Lewis, international president. The fight against seating Farrington as a delegate kept yesterday’s session of the “rump” meeting in a continual tur- Farrington’s 'foes charged he "sold out" the miners by signing a contract with the Peabody Coal Co. to act as their adviser at a salary of $25,000 a year while still president of the Illinois mine group. In reply, Farrington said the contract did not became effective and did not call for his services until after his resig nation from the State group went into effect. , . .. The assault on Lewis was led by Alex Howait of Kansas, who demanded a senatorial investigation of the rule of the international president. In a tele gram read before the convention and dispatched to Senator Burton K. Wheeler, Howatt asserted; "Controlling the international organi sation by autocratlfl rule, packed con ventions and professional sluggers, who suppressed all criticisms, Lewis has in creased his salary during the last dec ade from SB,OOO to $12,000 per annum. State after State has been swept from the union ranks until today the inter national organization outside of Illinois is but a mere shell.” The convention also adopted a reso lution demanding that steps be taken looking to legal action against Lewis, enjoining his access to the interna tional's treasury, which has funds of nearly a million dollars. ■ . —— 0 ■ ■ INDUSTRIAL PROGRESS ANTICIPATED IN SOUTH Conference Told Region Abounds in Resources—Washington Man Named Secretary. By the Associated Press. LITTLE ROCK, Ark., March 13. Terming this the electro-chemical-lron age, Gov. Bibb Graves of Alabama told the annual Industrial Conference of the Southern Division of the American Mining Congress Tuesday that the South should be the industrial center of America, because this region is richer in industrial resources than any other. The governor, however, urged that in dustrial leaders think in terms of America rather than sections in plan ning developments. “America’s world supremacy is being challenged,” Gov. Graves said, "and supremacy in the future will be merited by the survival of the fittest. The World War destroyed the manpower of Europe and left America with monopoly of unprecidented prosperity, but a new crop of men is being raised in Europe and with them is coming a new era.” Gov. Graves suggested a council of industrial leaders to co-operate with all the States as a means of promoting Southern development. Capt. R. M. Watt of Pineville, Ky., was chosen to succeed Erskln Ramsey of Birmingham. Ala., as chairman of the board of governors of the Southern division of the congress at the annual election. Dr. Henry Mace Payne of Washington was re-elected secretary. In a message read to the conference, Richard H. Edmonds, editor of the Manufacturers’ Record, said small pol itics and petty jealousies had greatly hindered industrial development in the South.

SHADOWY FIGURE TESTING DOOR HAS NO FEAR—HE'S WATCHMAN George Is One of 'Shadows Which Protect Business and Residential Properties in Capital. A shadowy form passes slowly by a show window, moves into the dark areaway of the entrance and pauses at the door. It is 2 o’clock in the morning. F street is deserted. No—there comes a policeman, swinging his club. The form at the door remains sta tionary. but a hand Teaches out and tries the knob with a quick twist. The policeman is close now. The figure in the areaway comes boldly out into the light and raises a hand to the officer. The man from the shadows is gray-haired, but erect. He is buttoned up in a heavy overcoat. His voice breaks the nocturnal stillness as he says simply: “Hullo. Eddie.’’ " ’Lo, George,” the policeman re sponds. That is all of the colloquy. Both men continue quietly on their way. Has Nothing to Fear. George has nothing to be afraid of, for he is not a gentleman of the under world engaged in nefarious prowling*, but a member of that llttle-heard-of but highly efficient protective corps, the Night Watchmen’s Association of the District ofoColumbia. He is one of a group of “shadows” which move in the downtown business section and in some parts of the fash ionable residential districts each night from twilight to dawn. His presence serves a fourfold purpose—to discourage law violators who may be seeking a likely “job,” to guard properties against fire and other damage, to save useless waste of electricity in show windows after the theater crowds have gone, and, finally, to correct shortcomings of ab sent-minded business men. The members of the Night Watch man’s Association just now are cele brating their twenty-fifth year of serv- I ice to Washington property owners. The organization was founded March 15, 1905. and now embraces a membership of about 30 men. Most of them are beyond middle age. They know m, hours by the clock. Their “day” Is U. S. STATES’ DEBTS STIR BRITISH LORDS Federal Government Declared Not Responsible to Bond holders. By the Associated Press. LONDON. March 13.—The futility of asking the United States Government to interfere in settling the accounts of eight Southern States which owe £78,000,000 (about $379,000,000) to British bondholders was pointed out yesterday in the House of Lords by Lord Ponsonby. Lord Redesdale had asked whether the British government would consider taking up the matter with the United States Government, saying that the defaulting States now were in the same position as Russia—namely, "a financial leper.” Lord Banbury, supporting the motion, declared that the United States had insisted on prompt payment of war debts by Great Britain, but said when the United States is the debtor she takes no steps to make settlement. Lord Ponsonby deplored criticism of the United States at this particular time and said it was most unfortunate that the United States had been com pared to Russia. He added that the United States Government had no con cern with the financial obligations of individual States. “If the Naval Conference is to be used as a smoke screen to prevent free speech in this House,” Lord Redesdale retorted, "it is a great pity.” EARL OF COVENTRY DIES. “Father of House of Lords” Was Famous English Sportsman.

A JUICY AND SWEET ■I STRAIGHT FROM SUNSHINY GROVES TO YOU FLORIDA ORANGES ‘"“GRAPEFRUIT HH Fop Hoalth Drink HAITI COMMISSION TO CONTINUE WORK Borno’s Reported Opposition to Temporary President Stirs Unrest. By the Associated Press. PORT-AU-PRINCE, March 13—The Hoover investigating commission has decided to remain in Haiti until it is further informed on the political situa tion instead of leaving in three or four days, as was Indicated yesterday. Return of the commission here yes terday brought calm to the capital after considerable unrest had been caused by President Bomo’s reported opposition to the commission's plan for a temporary President in Haiti. The commission reopened its hearings today, receiving testimony from Amer ican officials employed under the Amer lcan-Haltian convention. It will take no action toward Bomo until other matters are cleared up. Brig. Gen. John H. Russell. American high commissioner, was in conference with the commission four hours last night. Natives Chase Speaker Home. Natives of Gonaives listened patiently while Jean Francois Beauhorinais, a fellow citizen, told the Hoover commis sion yesterday about the wonderful things the United States had done since Benjamin Franklin’s time. But when the cruiser Rochester had pulled its anchor and sailed away, bear ing the commission back to Port-Au- Prince, a crowd of irate citizens chased the speaker home, denounced him as a traitor, showered him with bricks and threatened to burn down his home. They tore down a Haitian flag from his porch. Matin, a pro-Bomo paper here, which learned of the riot, said that Beau horinais eulogized the United States only as a prelude to a final declaration that American occupation was running the country and a demand for "liberty.” The paper hinted today that the United States was aligning itself with the "revolution.” Borno Is Quoted. The commission received a wirelessed report quoting a statement credited to President Borno in the newspaper Le Moniteur. The newspaper quoted the President as saying that he approved the com mission plan for a temporary adminis tration only on condition that it would be executed in strict accord with the constitution of Haiti and the treaty pf 1915. Since the constitution, under strict interpretation, would not provide for national legislative elections until 1932, the commission interpreted this as an apparent attempt by the Presi dent to delay execution of the plan. COTTON DENIES SUPERVISION. Commission to Work Oat Plan to Hold Until Elections, He Says. Joseph P. Cotton, acting Secretary of State, said today there was no indica tion that the United States would su pervise the forthcoming presidential election in Haiti. Cotton said the Forbes Commission would work out a temporary arrange ment by which the government would operate until the end of President Borno’s term in May, when the elec tions will be held.

I By the Associated Press, i DUNEDIN. N.w Zealand, March 13 | While members of his expedition were 1 at play In various parts of New Zealand. 1 on tours or fishing and hunting trips, Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd, with characteristic cheerfuless. today settled down to transact the large amount of business which has accumulated while he attended the numerous receptions ( given in his honor. Admiral Byrd was ■ getting his expedition ready to sail l ! home next week. The bark City of New York and the j steamer Eleanor Bolling must be refitted for the trip to Hew York, which is ex pected to require about nine weeks. City life here, which has meant but little more than walking about the streets speculating on the change from the icy wastes of the Antarctic, has be gun to pall on members of the party. To each man’s request for leave Admiral Byrd replied, “Go ahead.” Aided by free railroad transportation, many have gone to Mount Cook, the highest peak of the Southern Alps. Care for the safety of his men is Ad miral Byrd’s foremost, thought, and his warning to one not to take any risks when the man said he intended to at tempt to scale Mount Cook’s 12,000-foot ! summit appeared ironical. Reports on Talk Please Byrd. Admiral Byrd was delighted at re ports from many parts of the world in the interest in the two-way broadcast Tuesday with New York. “The interest taken in so many parts of the world, even in Germany, in the talk indicates that the expedition has brought the world's attention to the progressiveness of the United States in scientific research,” he said. "I have noted a tendency In some ' quarters of America and Europe to create a controversy between the British Empire and the United States concern ing claims in the Antarctic. There is no reason or ground for that. We have considered this expedition a scientific venture and, we hope, a sporting one. We want down there with the utmost respect for the British who preceded us, and our work should bring us closer to ; gether, and not farther apart. It would be a pity should a controversy arise and would go entirely against the feel ings and hopes we have held. “From the beginning we recognized I CLAFLIN I Optician—Optometrist 922 14th St. N.W.

We are much more interested in good fellow ship with the British in our common investigations down there than with any claims in Antarctica. It is another one of those things in which the intangible things of the spirit are far more im portant than the material aspects.” V Lofgren Is Social Hero. Charles Lofgren has been named the social hero of the expedition. Monotony hung heavy over them many times and he was the only man to maintain his equanimity throughout the entire Win ter. BjOd said, adding that he was "sorry to say that I have been tempera mentally ruffled at times. Lofgren was more than a secretary, he was the cheeriest man in the expedition.” At the Juvenile Shop . . . Friday Specials 70 Girls' Dresses, sizes 4 to 14. Cotton, silk and wool materials.
