U. S. SILVER LOAN
TO CHINA PENDING
Pittman Says Senate Sub
committee Considers Rec
ommending Such Action.
By the Associated Press.
SALT LAKE CITY, October B.
Recommendation for an international
loan of several hundred million ounce*
of silver to China Is under considera
tion by the Senate Subcommittee on
Foreign Relations, It was revealed here
today by Senator Key Pittman of Ne
vada, Its chairman.
The loan, he said, would be a means
of stabilizing Oriental trade and the
pacification of China.
Addressing the Salt Lake Chamber of
Commerce, he reported the tentative
findings of the subcommittee, which has
held hearings in Washington and
principal Pacific Coast cities on com
mercial relations with China. Testi
mony of bankers, manufacturers, ex
porters, importers and others familiar
with the political and commercial his
tory of China was heard.
Committee Considers O.K.
“The committee is considering the
recommendation, through its report to
the Senate, of a plan to pacify China,
finance the national government and
place the 450,000,000 of Chinese people
in the peaceful pursuits of Industry
rather than the destructive enterprise
of war,” Senator Pittman said. "Some
constructive action is essential, because
our exports to China, including wheat,
lumber, automobiles and other manu
factures, have fallen off over 50 per
cent in the last seven or eight months.
"The plan anticipates the joint action
of China, Great Britain, France. Japan,
the United States and other interested
government--. A silver pool would be
organized by such governments, mak
ing available several hundred million
ounces of silver to be advanced to the
Chinese National government as and
when needed for peaceful purposes as
approved by a Joint Commission of such
lending powers.
"The agreement would probably have
to contain provisions that would bring
the four dominant war lords of China,
who now control vast armies and areas,
into the National government to par
ticipate in its administration, the ad
vances or loans so made to be measured
ip ounces, and not in values, and to
be repaid, principal and interest, in
ounces of silver.
Agreeable to Government.
"According to the testimony of wit
nesses qualified to express an opinion,
such a plan would be agreeable to the
National government, the four war
lords and the people of China. The
plan, in the opinion of such witnesses,
would result in the immediate pacifica
tion of China, the establishment of
control of the National government
over the whole of China, the opening
up of the vast interior and the revivi
fication ot all industry.
"Such an accomplishment, so these
witnesses testify, would Increase our
commerce with China tenfold, would
consume almost immediately our entire
surplus of wheat and would greatly re
duce our surplus of lumber, automo
biles and other manufactures. China,
under such conditions, it is contended
by all of such witnesses, oould use
more silver than is now available from
the total production of all of the mines
producing silver in the world.
“This would naturally have a tend
ency to Increase the price of silver and
the purchasing power of that metal,
which to the only money or purchasing
medium of China, aa wen aa many
other countries. Such increase in the
purchasing price of silver would in
crease the purchasing power of all
other countries, to the great benefit of
our exports.
"The price of silver, of course, would
change, but It would range within
smaller limits, and such demand would
undoubtedly hold the price and pur
chasing power of silver throughout the
world at such a limit as to Insure pros
perity iti China and an other silver
using countries.
“Os course, after the Senate has ap
proved a resolution containing any such
plan. It would then have to go to the
President of the United States to be
consummated into an agreement if the
plan met his approval.”

GRAND JURY ASKED i
TO QUIZ EDITORS
Carlton Claims Bribe Charges
Against Officials Aimed
at Him.
B r the Aaaof latetf Press.
TALLAHABaRB. Fla.. October «.
Charges of "bribery and illicit connec
tion with the Zuta and Capone ele
ment,” alleged to have been made
against state officials by "tiro or three
newspapers of the State.” will be In- 1
veatigated by a special grand jury here i
October 20.
Call for the investigation was Issued
today by Circuit-Judges X. C. Love and
J. B. Johnson on written request from
Oov. Doyle X. Carlton who said “in
sinuations arnd charges” had been
brought primarily against him.
In his letter requesting the grand
Jury inquiry, the chief executive sug
gested that the court call as witnesses
the editor of the Florida State News, at
Tallahassee, and the editor of the South i
Jacksonville Herald.
Fred O. Eberhardt, editor of the
Florida State News, in a brief state
ment declared he welcomed the investi
gation. but would insist that the grand j
Jury inquire into other charges which 1
he said his newspaper had made against
the Governor.
Eberhardt recently was freed by a
magistrate's court at Jacksonville on
charges of conspiracy to procure the
assassination of Gov. Carlton. Frank
Ralls, former Carlton campaigner, and
Henry Halsema, real estate man, were
jointly charged with Eberhardt. Justice
J. C. Madison threw out the case at
the end of the State’s testimony.
Declaring that since the defense had
no opportunity to tell its story he
would do so in his newspaper, Eber
hardt began a series of copyrighted ar
ticles, claiming to set forth “the inside
story of the assassination plot."
With appearance in the Florida State
News of Eberhardt’! first story of the
series. Gov. Carlton issued a blanket
denial of allegations, which, he said,
had been carried and made charges
against Eberhardt.

TRADE DISHONESTY
HELD CRIME OASIS
Col. Randolph Declares Un
fair Measures and Rum
Traffic Are to Blame.
Be the Associated Press.
NEW YORK, October B.—The under
lying eauaes of crime in Chicago are
two, Col. Robert I. Randolph, president
of the Chicago Association of Com
merce and the man who appointed the
“Secret Six” Crime Committee of that
body, told a New York Board of Trade
luncheon meeting today.
"The first,” he said, "is the effect of
the prohibition law. The second, more
difficult to describe or define, is the in
creasing tendency or willingness on the
part of many business men and insti
tutions, regarded and regarding them
selves as decent citizens, to purchase
special privileges, to violate all law to
procure unfair weapons in the increas
ing competition of our economic life.”
Illegal profits made through the sale
of liquor are the meat upon which the
crime octopus feeds, he said.
Conditions Now Worse.
"An army of thieves, thugs, gunmen
and rascals has been built up in the
last 12 years and government has
broken down in this country because
respectable citizens by the millions pay
a constantly mounting tribute to those
robber barons for stuff they wouldn’t
drink if it was lawful,” he continued.
"We had crime aplenty when liquor
was lawful, of course, and the breeding
, spots of vice and crime were nearly
; always to be found in tough saloons,
i but the lawful liquor trade did net
have to support in order to live at all
the vast organization of criminals that
now gets its sinews of its war against
society from the smuggling, manufac
ture and distribution of contraband
beer and booze. No other form of
criminality to so universally condoned
or so liberally supported.
The building up of spurious “busi
ness associations" for the securing of
special privileges and price control of
certain, markets. Col. Randolph de
clared, has led to a system which preys
alike upon the consumer, the laborer
and the honest business man.
Urges Unions to Change.
Dishonest business agents of labor
unions have seized a power never in
tended for them, he charged, calling
on the "rank and file of the union
labor” to purge their organizations of
such men.
But in the last analysis, Col. Ran
dolph said, the blame for a continu
ance of lawless conditions may be laid
squarely at the door of the citizen.
“In this democracy of ours we get
the kind of government we are en
titled to," he said.
“We are going to co-operate with our
honest public officials wherever we can
find them.” he said, “support the honest
elements in our Police Department and
aid the forces of the Federal govern
ment in breaking up the national or
ganization of crime that has covered
j the country like an invading army.”
I “I have faith to believe we will suc
ceed.”

ROAD DELEGATE FROM BRAZIL
SLENDER, DARK-EYED SENORITA
Engineering Ability Wins
Convention Visitor Many
Honors.
Personally Superintended the
Construction of Buildings
in Rio de Janeiro.
BY GRETCHEN SMITH.
The only woman delegate from the
South American hemisphere, Senorita
Carmen Velasco Porthino, is one of
seven representatives from Brazil at
tending the Sixth International Road j
Congress. A slender, dark-eyed young ,
woman, Senorita Porthino comes, not |
only as an official from her country, but i
also as one of three delegates sent by j
the Automobile Club of Brazil.
Senorita Porthino, although in her
early twenties, has gained Innumerable .
honors and recognition of her profes
sional ability in her own country. Upon
receiving her degree as doctor of ,
engineering from the "Ecole Politechni
que” of Rio de Janeiro live years ago, !
Senorita Porthino obtained a position ;
as city engineer on the engineering staff :
of Brazil's capital city, and slnoe that
time, has personally superintended the
construction of many of the city's finest
public buildings.
In addition to her knowledge of
engineering, the young woman studied
architecture for two years at the School
of Fine Arts in Rio de Janeiro, and her
knowledge of architecture has served
her frequently in the selection of build
ing designs or architectural decorations
for public buildings.
At Session in Brazil.
Senorita Porthino attended the Pan- i
American Road Congress which was
held in Brazil last year, and the day
she left Rio de Janeiro to attend the
international congress now in Wash
ington she finished attending a conven
tion of the Automobile Club of Brazil.
In addition to her profession,
Senorita Porthino is an active member
of the Association of Progress of Women
of Rio de Janelzp, an organization work
ing to secure votes for women. “Only
one state in Brazil has been granted i
suffrage for women,” explained Senorita i
Porthino.
“Two years ago the Governor of the
State of Rio Grande de Norte, President
Lamartine, gave votes to women in
that state. As women in my country
are now taking an active part in the
business life of the nation, we feel we
should be permitted to vote. The Asso
ciation of Progress for Women, of
which I am vice president, is working
to secure votes for women throughout
the entire country-”
In addition to her office in the wom
an’s political party of Rip de Janeiro,
Senorita Porthino is president of the
Brazilian Uaiversity Woman’s Union.
She is also a teacher of mathematics in
the national secondary schools, and
writes numerous articles for newspapers
throughout her country.
Brazilian women are now enloying
wide liberties in the choice of careers,
Senorita Porthino said.
Ideas Seen Changing.
“Os course,” she remarked, “there
is still a conservative group who believe
that a woman’s place should only be in
the home. But that group is fast dis
appearing and the closely restricted and
chaperoned senorita is now found only,
in the provinces and the interior of
Brazil. Rio de Janeiro now has many
women and girls who are entering the
medical and legal professions. One of
my younger sisters is studying .aw and
another is to study engineering.”
, Senorita Porthino is the eldest of nine
children and much of the responsibility
of her family has been borne by her
since the death of her father, which :
occurred during hr.- last year in the :
! university.
Arriving In Washington Saturday,
Miss Porthino’s first visit was to the }
Zoological Garden. As is frequently |
the case, the young woman, being an
engineer and constructor of buildings,
prefers visiting zoo 6 to public buildings.
However, she admits that next to the
Alaskan bears, she has found Wash
ington's public edifices very interest
ing. She does not approve, however, of
the architecture of the State. War and
Navy Building, feeling that it spoils the
unity of idea in other public buildings
of the city.
Although road construction has not
come under Senorita Porthino's official
work, she nevertheless is Intensely in- ;

the work being done on public highways.

MACINTOSH RULING
REVERSAL ASKED
Supreme Court Decision In
Naturalization Denial
Case Sought.
By the Associated Press.
The Supreme Court was asked today
by Solicitor General Thatcher to pre
] vent Rev. Douglas Clyde Macintosh, a
Canadian, from obtaining American
citizenship.
In IMS, Dr. Macintosh joined the
Yale University faculty. He waa a
Canadian chaplain In the war.
In 1919, he made a second declara
tion In Connecticut of Intention to be
come an American citizen. Examined
for his papers' and asked whether he
would take up arms In defense of this
country, he replied.
“Yes, but I should want to be free
to Judge of the necessity.”
Naturalisation Denied.
The Federal District Court denied
him naturalization, holding the reply
indicated he was “not attached to the
principals of the Constitution.”
The Second Circuit Court of Appeals
reversed the ruling and ordered him
admitted to citizenship, taking the
position that “the refusal to perform
military services on account of re
ligious scruples has not been regarded
as Inconsistent with the duties and
obligations of citisenship.”
Fears New Alien Group.
Declaring this ruling to be contrary
to the decision of the Supreme Court
in the Schwlmmer case. wh*ji a woman
was refused naturalization because she
would not promise to take up arms In
; the defense of the United States, Solicl
tor General Thacher, asking a Su
preme Court review, asserted It opened
the way “for the creation ot a class
of citizens who reserve to themselves
the right to determine whether any fu
ture war In which the United States Is
Involved deserves their moral support
and justifies their taking up arms In
defense of the United States.”
He declared the ruling, If permitted
to stand, would be particularly harm
ful “because of the large alien popu
lation residing In the second circuit,'’
which Includes New York State.
The Government also asked the high
est court to review the decision of the
second Circuit Court of Appeals, which
admitted Marie Averil Bland of New
York City to citizenship. She was nat
uralised over the protest of the Govem
: ment. although she refused as a con-
I sclentious objector to ,bear arms under
• any circumstance. During the World
War she was a nurse.
PLAN FOR BIG CROWD
Officials of the Capital Traction Co.
were making arrangements today far
transportation of the crowd of 15,000
expected to attend the dedication serv
ices of the Christian Church at Thomas
Circle Sunday, October 19.
The circle will be roped off by the
; Police Department and no street ears
will be allowed to cross It. In order to
serve the crowd, street cars will be
taken to the circle, ss near as they can
get, on both tracks. During the service
passengers who wish to continue thetr
journey beyond the circle will be fer
ried In busses after their car has been
compelled to stop.
