Mr the Associated Press.
CHARLOTTE, N. C., June B.
Jc*iah W. Bailey of Raleigh was
leading Senator F. M. Simmons by
, 14,258 votes in returns from yester
day’s primary, with 1,218 of the
• State’s 1,789 precincts tabulated at 2
‘ * o’clock this morning.
The vote was: Bailey, 146,746;
Simmons, 92,486; Thomas Estep, 757.
, CHARLOTTE, N. C., June B.—The
Democratic party In North Carolina ap
peared at 1 o'clock this morning to
have “retired" United States Senator
Furnifold M. Simmons, who in 1928 re
fused to support the presidential candi
date of hit party, Alfred E. Smith.
The only chance the venerable legis
lator had to overcome a lead of 54,258
rolled up in 950 precincts by Joslah W.
Bailey, appeared to be in the possibility
that many of the unreported precincts
would go for him overwhelmingly.
Simmons Won't Concede.
At the .Simmons headquarters at his
home in New Bern, however, there was
no inclination to admit the nomination
of Bailey. It was asserted that the
Senator’s adherents believed that he
would overcome the large Bailey major
ity and that the Senator would con
tinue his career in the Senate started
80 years ago.
Bailey supporters in Raleigh, who
Entered the campaign to “punish” Sim
mons for refusing to support Smith with
the result that the State went Repub
lican for the first time in more than a
quarter of a century, were jubilant and
claimed a majority far in excess of their
fondest hopes. Should the percentage
continue in favor of Bailey, he would
win by around 80,000.
Batter and Pritchard Close.
In the Republican race George E.
Butler of Clinton, and George M.
Pritchard of Asheville were in a close
race, with H. Grady Dorsett of Wake
Forest and Irvin Tucker of Whiteville
getting just enough votes to prevent
either Pritchard or Butler getting a
majority. Under the Btate law such a
situation would necessitate a run-off
primary next month.
The vote in 415 precincts was: Butler,
2,423: Dorsett, 367; Pritchard, 2,263,
and Tucker, 727.
The vote in both Democratic and Re
publican primaries was light, despite
fine weather throughout the State.
In the Democratic primary, there were
four contsest lor congressional nomina
tions.
Abernathy Leads, 2 to 1.
Charles L. Abernathy, incumbent,
was leading, three-to-one, for renomlna
tion for Congress from the third dis
trict with 16 of the 163 precincts re
ported. The vote was: Abernathy,
2,111; Samuel H. Hobbs, 729.

By.the Associated Press.
PHILADELPHIA, June 7.—The power
of the Republican organization of
Pennsylvania asserted Itself today,
crushed Gifford Pinchot’s candidate for
State chairman, and re-elected Brig.
Oen. Edward Martin head of the State
committee.
Martin won by a vote of 77 to 37
over S. Van Brown, chairman of the
Lycoming County committee, who had
the full support of Plnchot and the aid
of Senator Joseph R. Grundy.
The fight for the chairmanship and
control, of the committee was said to
have been extremely sharp under the
surface, but when the votes came into
the open it was found that the power
ful organization of Allegheny County,
which includes Pittsburgh, and Phlla
delphia stood back of the State or
ganization and rolled up more than a
2-to-l vote against the Plnchot candi
date.
! Practice •( Party.
Plnchot fought for the right to name
the chairman on the ground that It
had been the practice of the party in
State and National affairs to permit
the winner of the principal nomination
to name the man who should run the
campaign. All other successful candi
dates in the primary were lined up for
Oen. Martin.
When it was all over, Plnchot took
the platform, thanked the Republicans
of the State for nominating him, con
gratulated Oen. Martin on his re-elec
tion. demanded that the public utilities
of the State give the people a square
deal, and t|emanded the help of the
party in putting an “end to vote steal

Biennial Meeting Colorful.
The biennial meeting of the State
committee for re-organization and to
lay plans for the Fall election was a
colorful affair. Because of the bitter
primary fight and the subsequent con
test over control of the State commit

dance of the committeemen. Looking
on were most of the other prominent
Republican leaders of the State. All
the successful candidates were present,
including Secretary of Labor James J.

CAROL TO RECEIVE
THRONE TODAY AT
SPECIAL SESSION
Royal Shift, Unique in His
tory, to Be Made by
Parliament.
MINORESCU SUCCEEDS
IN FORMING CABINET
Be«onciliation of Prince With
Mother of Michael Is Believed
Possibility.
By the Associated Press.
BUCHAREST, Rumania, June 7.
The kingdom he renounced five years
ago will be given back tomorrow to
Carol of Rumania, who chose Mme.
1 Magda Lupescu Instead of royal rights
in 1925 and went into exile.
Tonight, following the resignation of
Premier Jullu Manlu and his cabinet,
the Chamber of Deputies and the Sen
ate called a special session for 11
o’clock tomorrow morning (4 a.m..
Eastern standard time), when they will
place the dashing prince upon the
throne that was his birthright.
Thus will occur a royal shift unique
in the history of dynasties, and the
present boy King of Rumania, Carol's
son Michael, will become once more
just a little 9-year-old fellow without
esures other than some day he probably
will succeed his father as King.
Carol’s Friends Are Busy.
The dramatic return of Carol by air
plane made feverish a political situa
tion that already was troubled. Pre
mier Manlu presented the resignation
of his cabinet this afternoon because
the government could not agree on the
proper way of handling the new de
velopment. M. Mironescu, the foreign
minister, thereupon was charged with
forming a new ministry.
But Carol's, friends—and he has many
of them in Parliament—were busy, and
their activity resulted in the call for
the Sunday session, which will make
a King of an ordinary citizen.
A majority of the deputies clamored
today for the proclamation of Carlos as
king, "but it was impossible to hold
a sitting of Parliament before tomorrow,
hence the call for 11 o’clock. He is
strongly opposed by the Liberal party,
but the other parties, the army officers
and the people In general, appear to be
overwhelmingly In favor of his taking
the throne of his fathers.
Bays Return Demanded.
t In an interview, the Prince Indicates
that he returned because the political
condition of his country demanded it,
"I have. c6me to conciliate and to
calm the minds of the people,” he said.
"I have no thought of hate or ven
geance; on the contrary. I have come
to facilitate union In the Interests of
the country.”
It was one of the most astonishing
coups in history which dropped the
elder son of Queen Marie back to the
land from which, under the dethrone
ment law, he was supposed to stay
out for five more years.
He set out last night from Munich
In a French airplane, and was delayed
somewhat by two forced landings en
route—one near Grosswardeln and the
other near Koersfoe, due to a shortage
of gasoline. Eventually he reached the
Rumanian Military Airdrome at Klau
senburg, and donned the uniform of a
Rumanian general before taking off
on the flight to Bucharest, which he
reached late at night.
It was understood that preparations
for his return had been made by three
groups, working Independently.
He called on Premier Manlu, who im
mediately convoked the cabinet. An
all-night session resulted In no agree
ment and the ministry decided it could
do nothing but resign.
The new premier-designate immedi
ately set about to form a cabinet and

City of Indian Border.
By the Associated Pres*.
BOMBAY, June 7.—British airplanes,
loaded with bombs, have driven from
their caves the wild Afridi tribesmen,
who for a month have been menacing
the strategic city of Peshawar on the
northwestern frontier of India.
Eighty airplanes have participated in
the attacks and have dropped 5,000
bombs. British troops made a thorough
search of the area southwest of Pesh
awar today and found that the hill
warriors had withdrawn.
Officials said at the same time, how
ever, that the nature of the ground
makes hiding easy and finding difficult,
with the probability that some parties
of tribesmen still are lurking in other
directions from the great city of the
northwest.
Europeans were cheered today by the
news that two British officers and the
wife of one of them had been released
by raiders, who carried them into
Afghanistan Wednesday. Those kid
naped were Maj. E. L. Farley. Capt. J.
C. Frere and Mrs. Frere. They were
held across the border by Achakzal
tribesmen, after being removed from
their motor cars, but were treated con
siderately. Their release was obtained
by a chieftain of the Indian side of
the border.
News travels slowly In India, and not
until tonight was it learned that a se
rious riot occurred Thursday In
Oheehnagat, a village in the Daspur
district of Midnapore. Two police sub
inspectors and four constables were
attacked and injured by the villagers.
One subinspector Is reported since to
have died and the other is missing.
The constables were deprived of their
arms, ammunition and uniforms.
Another serious incident was reported
to have taken place yesterday at Bali
slai, in the same district. Fifteen hun
dred volunteers assembled to manufac
ture contraband salt and 17 were in
jured when the police fired after a
charge with their sticks.
The second day oi picketing liquor

passed off quietly, with the Nationalists
still standing in front of the stores and
warning off native buyers.
The general court-martial of 17 sol

Rifles, ended today at Abbotabad and
the court will send Its recommendation

GANGSTER’S BODY
FOUND IN CANAL
“Red” McLaughlin, Sixth of
Death Lily’s Swains,
Murdered.
By the Auocieted Press.
CHICAGO, June 7.—A passing tug
boat churned up the beaten, bullet
punched body of Eugene “Red” Mc-
Laughlin from the Chicago Drainage
Canal today, and newspaper flies turned
up the revelation that the sixth of
Margaret Hamilton's sweethearts had
graced gangsters' graves.
Feet and hands bound with wire and
head tied in a sack, the corpse of the
nationally notorious gunman, kidnaper,
robber and killer was dragged from the
water where it had apparently lain
about two weeks, and was taken tQ the
morgue to be identified by "Red’s”
brother, Robert McLaughlin, president
of the Checker Cab Co. of Chicago.
Blamed for Killing.
And then came word from police,
hunting a motive, that underworld
gossip blamed McLaughlin for the kill
ing of Earl "Jew” Bates in Cincinnati
about two months ago. Delving into
their records further they found that
Bates and McLaughlin—once pals—had
quarreled over the Hamilton girl, known
as Collins and referred to generally by
Hbodlums as the "Death Lily of Gang
land.”
It was Margaret who was Dion

SHOWER OF METEORS

NEW YORK, June 7.—Astronomers
urge the public to watch for meteors
next Monday night.
Not in many years has there been a
meteor shower at this time of the year,
and no certain prediction is made for
Monday. The possibility of the shower
was pointed out recently by a Japanese
astronomer who said he believed the
meteors are associated with a newly
discovered comet which is not far from
the earth.
Reports about these meteors, if they
appear, are wanted by the American
Meteor Society, which uses them to
learn about the earth’s atmosphere 50
to 100 miles aloft. The time, duration
and position of bright meteors are
wanted. If they explode or show col
ors or tails, those points are wanted
also.
This information should be sent to
Prof. Charles P. Olivier of the Univer
sity of Pennsylvania, head of the Amer
ican Meteor Society.
The meteors may appear any night
from Sunday, June 8, through June 11,
with the best chance Monday night.
They should be looked for near the con
stellation Hercules. TH'his constellation
will be nearly ovaritsad early m the

GERMAN MINISTER
SLAIN IN LISBON
Assassin From Danzig Had
British and American
Envoys Marked.
By the Associated Press.
LISBON, Portugal, June 7.—An
assassin with an avowed hatred of
diplomatic officials today shot and
killed Dr. von Baligand, German
Minister to Lisbon.
The assassin, who was arrested, came
from Danclg with a German passport.
He gave the name of Franz Piechowski,
39, and said he had at one time taken
out first naturalization papers at New
York.
Piechowski fired two shots at Dr.
von Baligand as the envoy reached a
pier after making an oflicial call upon
Admiral Gladish on the flagship
Koenigsbuerg, of the German fleet now
in Lisbon Harbor.
One of the bullets pierced Dr. von
Baligand's head. The other smashed
his Jaw. The envoy was taken to the
German Hospital unconscious. He died
in about two hours.
Previous Attempt Failed.
The assassin, a fair-haired, heavy
shouldered giant, came to Lisbon a
month ago, he said, and according to
his statement to the police, he tried
vainly to kill the German Minister.
Police surveillance about the embassy
frustrated his plans, it was declared.
The police said the man had developed
a strong persecution complex, which led
to today's killing. They said he had
told them the German government had
denounced him as a dangerous criminal
to the police of all Europe and that he
had had trouble also with the American
authorities.
The man was severely cross-examined
by the police, who said he came to
Lisbon for the express purpose of killing
the British, American or German
Minister, and that it was only a matter
of chance that the actual victim crossed
his path today. He expressed no re
gret, the police said.
The prisoner will be examined by
alienists before proceedings begin for
his extradition to Germany to face
trial for murder.
Thought Moscow Agent.
Although Piechowski claimed his act
was prompted by purely personal mo
tives, the police expressed the theory
that he was an agent of Moscow. Three
cable messages addressed to the Mos
cow foreign office and one «c the
League of Nations at Geneva, asking
protection against his “persecutors”
were seized among his effects, together
with a pile of false passport letters
from Rio Janeiro, Madrid, Berlin and
Moscow.
The coming of the German fleet to
Lisbon Harbor had been made occa
sion of a celebration, which was cast
into gloom by today's tragedy.
With the counselor of the German <
legation the Minister had just returned
to shore from a visit to the flagship
when the man sprang forward and
blazed with a revolver at him.

FEDERATION FAVORS
PRESENTTAX RATE
«
Resolution Adopted Urges
Budget Be Limited to Keep
Down Levy.
Taking steps to help forestall a pre
dicted increase in the real estate tax,
the Federation of Citizens’ Associations
last night recommended that the Dis
trict of Columbia budget for 1932 be
so “limited’’ that the present tax rate
of $1.70 will be maintained.
This action was taken by the federa
tion in the closing moments of a ses
sion which ran nearly to last mid
night, after attempts to bring the mat
ter up had either been postponed or
amended.
A resolution by William McK. Clay
ton, which would have put in strong
language the determination of the fed
eration to “serve notice’’ and to "fight”
against increase in tax rate was tem
pered upon objection by Charles I.
Stengle and Dr. George. C. Havenner,
and was amended to read that “the
Federation of Citizens’ Associations
recommends that the budget for 1932
be limited ao it can be covered by our
present tax rate.” Copies were ordered
sent to the Senate and House District
committees, the District Commission
ers and the Citizens’ Advisory Council.
Would Face Issue.
James G. Yaden questioned whether
a tax rate of $1.70 would cover all the
requirements of the District of Colum
bia as requested by the federation, de
claring the federation should face the
issue and “not scuttle around here like
rats running from a sinking ship.”
Dr. Havenner estimated that a tax
rate of $1.70 should give the District
a budget of $48,000,000, but said that
such heavy expenditures as the new
municipal center and appropriations
for schools could be “carried along over
several years.”
The resolution pointed out that the
tax rate affected the well-being of all
residents of the District.
The federation, on recommendation
of its committee on law and legislation,
headed by Thomas E: Lodge, went on
record as opposed to the Bowman small
loans bill and adopted a resolution, also
presented by Lodge’s committee, ear
nestly recommending passage by the
Senate qf the compulsory automobile
insurance law. ’
Car Fare Controversy.
A controversy which waxed so warm
that it was finally shut off by a vote
to lay it on the table, arose over the
proposal to amend the bill giving
school children 3-cent fares on street
railways, so as to Include children
from parochial and private schools.

ROCKVILLE, Md., June 7.—Another
change of venue for a new trial of
Leroy Brady, charged, with murder in
the triple bomb slayings at Seat Pleas
ant, Md., on New Year day, appeared
as a possibility tonight a few hours
after the first case against him had
resulted in a mistrial.
The jury was discharged at 2:52
o’clock this afternoon, after more than
17 hours of deliberation. The final
ballot was said to have been 8 to 4 in
favor of an acquittal for the Wash
ington automobile mechanic. The
minority held out for a verdict of first
degree murder without capital punish

Brady was on trial for the murder of
Mrs. Naomi Hall Brady, wife of his
brother Herman, and her young sister
and brother. They met their deaths
New Year morning when the young
woman opened the package which she
presumed was a Christmas present.
Mrs. Brady was the daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. John S. Hall, and Mrs. Hall
and another one of her young sons,
also gathered near her daughter in the
kitchen of their home to see the
“present,” were injured seriously.
Wed Brother of Defendant.
Mr. Hall, a cemetery employe, was
not at home at the time.
Herman Brady, his brother, who was
a farmer, residing near Mltchellville,
Md., and Naomi Hall were married
secretly a short time before her death.
Authorities contend she was an ex
pectant mother. The prosecution at
tempted. to prove that Leroy Brady
manufactured the bomb and carried it
to the Hall home in an effort to aid bis
brother untangle his marital troubles.
All of the Jurors appeared tired when
they filed into the court room to be
excused.
‘‘Gentlemen, I understand you are
unable to agree,” said Judge Robert B
Peter. “Is that true?”
“I don’t think there is any possibility
whatever of our reaching an agree
ment,” William MaGruder, the foreman,
replied.
“Os course,” remarked Judge Peter,
“it is much to be regretted that you
can't get together on a verdict. How
ever, I do not blame you for adhering
to your views. I'll have to discharge
you. I thank you for your services.”
Counsels Are Worn Oufl
Worn out after the week-long legal
battle, the opposing attorneys gave lit
tle thought to their future plans to
night. It was understood, however,
that Brady would remain in jail with
out privilege of bond until another trial
is held in the Fall. Officials Indicated
Leroy’s case probably would be defin
itely disposed of before the trial of Her
man on a similar charge.
J. Wilson Ryon, of prosecution coun
sel, announced no decision would be
reached for several days on proposals
that the State request a change of
venue from Montgomery County for the
new trial. The first trial originally was
Intended to be held in Prince Georges
County. A change of venue was ob
tained by the defense on the grounds
that a fair trial would be impossible so
near the scene of the crime. Each side
in such a case is limited to a single
change of venue.
M. Hampton Magruder, chief of de
fense counsel, revealed he would fail to
oppose any attempt the State might
make to have the new trial held in
some other jurisdiction. He added he
had no plans to seek the release of
either of his clients on bond.
Brady retained his detached air
when the jury was dismissed. Calm
and collected since his trial began Tues
day, the defendant made his first emo
tional display today when he kissed
his young wife when she Joined him in
the court room.
The decision of Judge Peter to delay
declaring a mistrial until afternoon set
a precedent for this Circuit Court. Of
ficials said that in all previous murder
cases here, juries found deadlocked after
deliberating all night had been excused
at 9 or 10 o’clock the following morning.

JOHNSON TO CALL
FOR SHOWDOWN ON
NAVAL DOCUMENTS
Challenges Right of Adminis

DENIES WASHINGTON
> ESTABLISHED PRECEDENT
t Declares First President Refuted
Secret Papers in Jay Caie to
House Alone.
Senator Hiram W. Johnson, leader
’ of the Senate opposition to the Lon
' don naval treaty, served notice yea
l terday that he would call for a show*
down tomorrrow in the foreign rela*
1 tlons committee on the
i tion's refusal of his demand for Its
1 more confidential files on the treaty
negotiations.
The Senator, a fellow Californian
i and political opponent of Presldenf
[ Hoover, issued a statement challenging
l not only the administration’s right to
> withhold such documents In the pres
i ent case, but also its contention that
' George Washington set the precedent
■ in the very beginning of the Republic.
It was to the House and not to the
: Senate that President Washington de
; nied secret documents In the Jay treaty
' case. Senator Johnson declared In the
i statement. Only the first half of
Washington’s reply to the House was
t quoted, the Senator said, in the let
ter of Henry L. Stimson, Secretary of
, State, to Senator William E. Borah,
1 chairman of the foreign relations com
, mittee.
The second half, “by a singular over
! sight” omitted from Secretary Stim
son'* quotation, according to Senator
Johnson, would have shown thsf
Washington made a distinction in fa
; vor of the Senate and laid all the pa
pers before the latter body.
Present Instance Differs.
The present Instance differs any
, way from the one cited by Secretary
Stimson, in Senator Johnson’s opinion.
. in that “the signers of the (London)
treaty” made public a part of the pre
, liminary correspondence passing be
i tween the United States and British /
governments.
i “It is silly, and worse, for any in
: dividual to contend that he can put
into the public record and publish
. broadcast ... a part of the cor
respondence . . . and then, holding up
his hands in holy horror at a request
, for all the correspondence, pretend _
. that . . . the giving of all of it to his
partner in treaty making would be in
’ compatible with the putst* interest,”
the Johnson statement said.
{ This is the issue that the leader
. of the treaty opposition will raise, he
, said, in a meeting of the committee
, which is to be held tomorrow morning,
according to announcement yesterday fay
Chairman Borah. With the committee
standing 15 to 5 for ratification, Sena
l tor Johnson apparently intends to move
. to put the committee on record as de
. manding the “missing document*” re
gardless of the administration reply
[ received yesterday.
I Secretary Stimsan’s reply tended to
I Isolate Senator Johnson from the com
. mittee as a whole. Mr. SUmson was at
. pains to point out that it was the papers
which Senator Johnson insisted upon
, that President Hoover directed him to
, refuse, this cm the ground that the
| confidence of other nations must be pre
- served or American Influence in future
, conferences would be impaired.
Demanded Cablegrams.
i
The committee proper on Senator
; Johnson’s motion had originally de
i manded a certain 12 cablegrams men
: tioned in a general board formal memo
randum to the Secretary of the Navy,
whieh was put into the record by Sena
tor Joseph T. Robinson, Democrat of
Arkansas, one of the delegates to Lon
don, who is leading the Amdlnistratlon’s
move for ratification. The production
by the State Department of paraphrased
copies, with certain matters admittedly
omitted to avoid embarrassing Prime
Minister J. Ramsay Macdonald, brought
the sweeping demand from Senator
Johnson for "all letters, papers, docu
ments, telegrams, dispatches and com
munications of every sort leading up to
or relating to the London Conference
and London Treaty.
Senator Borah disclosed yesterday,
however, that not all of the matter re
quested by the committee proper had
been produced in the "confidential
memorandum” submitted Friday by
Secretary Stimson as the most that the
President considered it wise to produce.
The Committee chairman is disposed
to believe that any effort to get more
than the administration has furnished
will be futile In any event. Yet he in
dicated that he would be willing to vot#
to ask for anything that any member
needed to make up his mind about the
treaty.
