Leaders of the two major political
parties do not expect any organized
Independent opposition to their plans
for fighting out the Congressional
election on a straight goods partisan
Predictions of a third party move

interesting than important. While ad
mitting that existing conditions in

It will crystallize during the struggle
between the respective parties for the
control of Congress.
The Republican leaders who have
prospected th? ground assert that
while the eruption of the Agricultural
bloc will merely result in increasing
the influence of that element in the ;
party they will always be able to hold
It in hand and at least prevent it from
? ventuating Into any new political en
terprise like the Non-Partisan League
or the o\(1 Populist movement. -
The Democratic leaders while as
serting they will be able to increase
the representation of their party in
bolh the Senate and House frankly
admit that they do not expect to get
fontrol of eitJ.er. Impartial observers
in confirming this opinion declare that
the chief cause for it is the lack of
legitimate issues in either paFty. The
tendency of both parties, they say. is
to match each other as in the case of
the Volstead law.and also the bonus
raid. The nearest, approach to issues
that the Democratic party proclaims
are the Newberry case and the flght
over the treaties negotiated at the
conference on armament.
Newberry Case <o Fl?nre.
The Newberry rase Is certain to fig
ure In a number of the tliirty-four
contests for seats in the Senate; but it
will not be an issue in the election of
any of the 455 members of the now
riousc of Representatives. The chief
element of strength in the Republican
party will be the record of the Harding
Administration as distinguished fron
the rccord of the Republican Congress.
Most of the criticism that men and
women citizens liurl toward Washing
ton are directed squarely at Con
gresses and not at the White House.
The reason for this is that most of the
Congressional undertakings are inter
preted as solely reflecting the determi
nation of Senators and Representa-!
lives who will seek popular approval |
in November 1o work for their own1
Individual interests and not for their
respective parties.
The Democratic party is admittedly
at the zero stage of its career. It Is
without decisive leadership, apparently
has no dpflnlfe program, save that of ;
obstruction, is practically bankrupt
financially and its national orgnnlzi-'
tlon is almost at the point of dlsinte- !

Ho resisted the importunities of
party leaders to take n hand in the

point of difference between them.

Count Sigray Faces Trial

Bpecial Cable to The New York Hbbai.d.

VIENNA, April 2.?The Crimi
nal Court in Budapest has
decided to take criminal ac
tion against Count Julius An
Irassy, former Premier of Hun
gary; Count Anton Sigray, former
Governor of West Hungary, and
other Carlist ringleaders In the
attempt in October, 1921, to restore
the late Charles of Hapsburg to tho
throne. Charles, who traveled from
Switzerland to Hungary in an air
plane, was supported in his coup by
Andrassy. Sigray and others of tho
old Hungarian nobility.
Count Sigray married Miss Har
riot Daly, daughter of Marcus Daly
of New York and Montana, in 1910.
The Countess Sigray is in this
country at present.

Vienna. April 2.?Although the Aus
trian press stresses the pathos of the
downfall and death of former Emperor
Charles on a lonely island it is realized
the elimination of his person removes
the greatest obstacle to a consolidated
peace in central Europe and the calm
ing down of the Hungarian situation.
But the far reaching political con- j
sequences cannot be fully gauged as^
yet. The present effect is certain to
be the lifting of the tense nervousness
which has kept Hungary's neighbors
dangerously excited for the last three
years. So far as Austria Is concerned
the news of Charles's death was re
ceived with profound expressions of
compassion and sympathy for the be
reaved family. Charles was never
popular in Austria except in limited
monarchist circles, and it was almost
forgotten he was ever a factor In Aus
tria's destinies.
If Charles was politically dead for
Austria long before his physical death
this was not the case In Hungary, where
he always remained the crowned king,
and the Hungarian aggressive policy for
the recovery of territorial Integrity was
closely connected with Ills person. He
served as a symbol for a greater Hun
gary. This aggressiveness might be
mitigated now, and, according to the
latest dispatches from Budapest, an im
provement in Hungary's relations with
neighboring States Is expected. The
legitimists are expected to lose much of
their influence.
While in Austria no political reaction
is outwardly visible. It Is likely the
monarchists of Austria will follow the
lead of Hungary and accept Francis
Joseph Otto, eldest son of Charles, as
the legal head of the Hapsburgs. A
suggestion lias been made that Prince
Slxtus, an Italian, and brother of former
Empress Zlta, legally adopt Francis j
Joseph Otto, making him a member of i
the Italian house of Bourbon-Parma,
and thus circumvent the ban on the
Hapsburg succession.
Loam I.nwful tinier.
The political difference between Aua- |
trla and Hungary regarding the death !
of Charles Is that the former Is a re- 1
public, for which the death of the ex- j
Emperor Is a private affair without any <
official consequences or public mourn
ing. while Hungary, a kingdom, con
siders that It has lost Its lawful ruler,
whose royal rights were only tempor
arily suspended by circumstances but
never ceased.
Official ("zecho-Slovakian circles In
Prague consider the death of Charles as 1
h great relief, as his person as crowned
King of Hungary now passes Into his
The ex-Emperor Is stated to have ex
pressed the wish to be hurled in the his
toric Knpuziner Oruft In Vienna, but It j
Is doubtful what attitude the republican
Government and the allied Powers will
assume on this point. Viennese Entente !
circles believe the Hungarian monarch- \
Ists will appeal to the Council of Am
bassadors to permit the burial there,
hut It will take a long time to settlo the
question. The only extensive mark of
sympathy revealed In Vienna was In the I
fact the church bells throughout the city
rang for half an hour this morning In j
Charles's memory.
To-day's Vienna newspapers devote
Ions editorials to the former lCmperor's
death, but all aacfhtuate the human side
of the tragedy. The Christian Reich*
post, whose edl'or Is said secretly to be
a monarchist, appeared In mourning and
declared: "This death has so over
shadowed human misery that one wishes
for humanity's f-ako that compassion and
respectful silence shall coma to the aid
of the family."

The Socialist Arbrilrr Zeitvng Is not
of the same opinion. It admits the hu

Dublin, April 2. t
While the secessionist army was
mustering its members of the Dublin
, brigade this afternoon in the attempt
to prevent the operation of the Dail
Eireann and Ihe Provisional Govern
ment, Michael Collins, ' head of the
!atter body, speaking at Castlebar
took another step in the open diplo
macy between him and Eamon de
Valera to And a common ground on
which both can work harmoniously
for the good of Ireland.
The extent of the split in the Irish
Republican Army was clearly indloated
by the fact that about 2,000 members
of the Dublin brigade, which before
the split was generally believed to
number 5,000, gathered in Smithfleld
market and formed into companies,
taking a new oath of allegiance to the
Irish Republic. A few thousand spec
tators were present Resides two com
panies of the Kumann Na Bman, a
woman's organization, and some Irish
Boy Scouts.
Several speakers addressed the men
assembled In two large groups, the
principal speakers being Roderick
| O'Connor and Oscar Traynor, com
I mantling officer of the Dublin brigade.
Traynor spoke indistinctly, but the
tenor of his remarks was a general
indictment of the regular army lead
; era for abandoning the struggle for a
| republic. He insisted the oHIy thing
j that would bring about civil war
i would be the failure of the rest of the
| army to join the secessionists, because
. Collins and Griffith could not conduct
a war without an army.
Suppression Denied.
O'Connor denied the charge they were
aiming: to suppress the Dail Elreann.
saying this was needless, because the
Griffith members who voted for the
treaty were doing that. He accepted the
responsibility for wrecking the Free
man's Joiimcl plant. Justifying it by
saying the Irish newspapers were not
free, as an example of which he cited a
lurge fror.t page advertisement In a
local paper urging all soldiers, In behalf
of army headquarters, to remain loyal.
'l'tare was a discrepancy here, as
Traynor had previously charged that the
leaders of the regular army were using
money to disrupt the army ranks of the
secessionists, saying that they must have
paid ?15 tor that advertisement.
The men composing the Dublin bri
gade of the secessionist army are In
ferior in physical appearance. The
.great majority appeared to be from
eighteen to twenty-tour years old and
a few appeared In short trousers. Most
of ? them were shabbily dressed and
dull looking, giving the Impression that
they were not ?cpresentative of Dublin
Freedom Xot Complete.
Tf Colllns's open covenant and olive j
branch plan finds favor with the De j
Vnlerlsts the Importance of this muster!
dwindles. He admitted that complete
freedom had not yet been gained, but
that the North must be converted to
Irish nationality so that on the day
when the nation speaks to the world
"with a united Gaelic voice" full and
complete freedom would be gained. IIh
asked De Valera and his friends If j
they would not Join for a united Ireland j
and nddod. "Can they not adopt a policy
of live-and let live?"
"Will they not admit the facts and
recognize that, the Free State in the
immediate future Is the only posslblo \
government?" Collins a?ked. The agree
ment with Sir .Tames Craig, Premier
of Ulster, he said, added Immensely to
the prospect of a union which would oe |
made almost certain "if we could arrive
at an understanding among ourselves.'
Intimidation and violence, Collins said,
gave England a chance "for the old ex - '
cuse of Intervention, the old divide and
rule" s> stem. He prescribed two con
ditions to which both sides must con
form: First, no military violence: s<>r ? ;
ond, the Free State force must be the
nucleus of a national army.
While it Is expected De Valera will ;
tnk< n a keen interest In Colllns's speech,
this was not. Indicated by his talk at
Diindalk to-dny, where. In referring to1
the new peace pact, he said that In
North Ireland It was already cons.d- .
cred to be a scrap of paper.

services, for such they really should be

Crew Lined Up anil Freight
Cars Emptied at Chelsea,
Near Pou^hkeepsie.
Made Engineer Stop at Gun
Point and Drive Locomo
tive a Mile Away.
Special Dispatch to Tin Nrr\v Tout Hmalp.
Poitqhkeepsie, April 2.?A fast freight
train of the New York Central Rail
road was held up at 2 o'clock this
morning at Chelsea, twelve miles from
here, by seven armed bandits who
clambered on to the locomotive and
caboose while the train labored up the
heavy grade near the Chelsea brick
yards, one of the loneliest sections on
the road from New York to Albany.
Seven cars were broken into and
looted by the bandits, after they had
lined up the train crew, forced them
to the tender and compelled the en
gineer, H. Cranntigc, to drive the loco
motive a mile down the track.
Railrpad officials here said to-night
that while the quantity of goods
stolen was probably large, they would
not be able to tell how much the loss
was until an inventory of the ship
ments and the cargo of the train had
been made. It Is believed that the
bandits had intended to hold up the
train which leaves New York every
night laden with valuable shipments
of raw and finished silk,"and which
should have paused the Chelsea sta
tion only a few minutes before the
one that was held up. This train was
late, however, an<f the mixed freight,
known as the M. D. 3, passed it.
I'ew of the details or the holdup have
reached T'oughkeepsJo because every
official of the Sheriff's .office, headed
by Sheriff Everett It. Davis, is at Chel
SM helping to hunt fur the robbers,
and railroad officials are reticent. So
far as the authorities here have re
ceived word, the bandits did not shoot,
any of the train crew, none of whom
offered resistance when the bandits
suddenly appeared on the tender and
In the caboose and pointed pistols at
Ilrakentnn Hot?e?*n Fires.
One of the brakemen of this train, it
is said, was on top of a freight cir near
the tender when the bandits appeared
and began shooting to frighten the engi
neer and fireman. He turned and
started on a run back toward the ca
boose, pursued by one of the bandits,
who had clambered onto the> top of the
train from the engine. This man firetl
one shot into the air, and then two
moro in quick succession. Apparently
it was u signal, because a bandit Im
mediately climbed to the top o>' the
freight car nearest the caBoose and the
brakam&n, caught between two fires,
surrendered and was ted back to join
the others on the tender.
Sheriff Davis and a pos>e of seventeen
deputies left for Chelsea us .soon au
word was received here of tiie holdup,
end to-night they are sweeping the
country in automobiles. Detachments
of State police are also scouring the
district tn the Vicinity of the brickyards
and ranting up and down the river for
several miles. So far no word has been
received hero of I race of the bandits.
The Sheriff believes that they escaped
in automobile*, lights of which were seen
noput. the stalled train by tiie men of
the crotv it mile or more away. It in
poM.-ible that they had a boat moored
alongside the Chelsea docks.
The holdup apparently was elaborate
ly planned and as elaborately staged.
Before the bandits boarded the train
when it slowed up down Uie brickyard
grade, they cut the t( lephone and tele
graph wires within a radius of several
miles. When they left the train crew,
the engineer and hits men had to go to
Beacon and Pougnkeepsle before they
could telephone an alarm.
St* Arreiitfil I Then Freed.
There is not much life in the Chelsea
section during tiie v. inter, when the
brickyards lire shut down, and in all
the stretch of track from New York to
Albany the bandits could hardly have
picked out a better spot for the holdup.
They came with caution, apparently, and
were successful In keeping out of (tight,
because' the authorities have not been
able.to find any one who saw them or
heard them before they begun shooting
about the train to frighten the crew.
Once this morning the Sheriff and his
posse thought they might have tome of
the men concerned In the crime. They
picked up four negmes and two white
men who were driving rspldly along the
river road near Chelsea, but these men.
It was said here to-night, had an alibi
and were releaaed.
The brndits must have been at Chel
sea some time before the train came
along. The wires were cut with nippers
The bandits even found time to break
open the telephone pay station and rob
the coin .box of the few nickels it con
tained. Then they strung out along the
tmcka, hiding In the bri< kyard behind
piles of brick and crouching under the
embankment at the sl''e of the ralln.

the superintendent of the home, who
culled the police, and Policeman Rob

while they observed that the Elinore,
wi tugboat, had gone to the boys'
I assistance.
The New York Police Department's

Five Bnrglars Capture
A. R. Shattuek. Wife
and Eight Servants
in Daring Style
Escapes Bandit Guard in
Cellar and Scares Off In
truders in a Hurry.
j Sunday Crowds Join in Excit
ins; Clinse Until Squirming
Frenchman Is Cornered.
Just after tlic eight servants in the
home of Albert R. Shattuek. who
[ lives at 19 Washington Square North
sat down to dinner yesterday after
noon?a few minutes after 1:30
three men entered the room, poked
pistols forward and marched the eight
I into the cellar and shoved them into
i the wine vault.
At the same time two other men
went to the second floor of the house
and into Mrs. Shattuck's rooms there,
encountering her. ^She screamed and
her husband, who had been In the
library, ran to her rescue.
One of the men jammed the muzzle
of a pistol into Mr. Shattuck's ab
domen, told him to make no noise
unless he desired to die and then
both Mr. Shattuek and his wife were
unceremoniously bundled down into
the cellar and thrust into the vault
to keep the servants company. One
of the Btrangers was left to guard the
door of the vault. He declared that
he proposed doing no shooting unless
J the ten within the inclosure tried
to escape or attract attention.
His four companions then scat
tered over the house to perpetrate
one of the most remarkable bur
glaries this city has seen for years.
| All of the five burglars were masked
?two of them with bandanna hand
? kerchiefs and the remainder wit*
j black cloth cut In the most approved
bandit method. Likewise all of them
were small, all about the same size
as Eugenio Dioset, a French sailo.1
who gives his address as 321 Wei
! Twenty-first street, who was capture
and who has given to the police ?
story that they say warrants them in
predicting the arrest of the others.
Probably 1'iifd Pasa Keys.
When the raid took place all of
Washington Square was crowded and
the large throngs of promenaders
1 usually seen in Washington Square
North and West of a fine Sunda\
i afternoon were out. Just how the
burglars got into the place remains
' something of a mystery, although the
I chances arc that they let themselves
In through the basement door with a
pass key. No window had been Jim
mied nor opened. No door had been
Although the police wore mow! ret
icent concerning the nffalr and th?*
Shattucks and their servants refused
{ to go into details. It is said on pood
? uthority that at least two of th?
burglars enered the house with a key,
mysteriously obtained, very early in
the mornln*. At the proper time they
are supposed to ha\ e let their pals in
Ju~t how much Jewelry and money
was taken is conjecturable. The police
estimate the Shattuek loss at >75,000,
| all In Jewels and money. The same
! quick estimate by the police places the
value of the stuff found in Dioset'a
possesion when he was captured at
' $20,000.
There seems to b? little reason
i doubting that the burglars knew tli?
house. Likewise they knew the acheti
i tile of the family. They were In the
i house for come time before they mad
i their appearance. That Is accepted hi
certain. They waited until Mr. and
Mrs. Shattuek l?d finished dlnnei
Then they waited until all of the
servants were In the dining room in
?he basement. They knew precise!y
where the wine vault was. They dlu
j not fumble about either before or
after the robbery. They wasted no
time in false moves.
Tl"- three who took the servants by
surprise entered the room by Its t* i
iioor?. The servants, the builer, i,>e
other two men and Ave women, were
faced by two men who told them to b?<'K
