NEW YORK. Sept. 24 The theory
that Mrs. Grace Laws, losing the
friendship and financial assistance of
Miss Mildred Hanan, was driven to
a frenzv which resulted in her shoot
ing the shoe manufacturer's daugh
ter and then committing suicide was
advanced today by John S. Borland,
a central figure in yesterday's trag
edy. Borland, Dartmouth graduate. Im
porter and friend of both Miss Ha
nan and Mrs. .Laws, advanced his
theory only after he had been pressed
to do so by Assistant District Attor
ney Wilson.
He asserted that the ending of the
friendship, earning with it with
drawal of Miss Hanan's financial as
sistance, had left Mrs. Laws nearly
"broke." He expressed belief that
this was followed by the excessive
drinking for which Mrs. Laws wrote
her regret ln a letter addressed to
her sister in San Francisco and was
found among her possessions. Then,
in turn,? according to the Borland
theory, ame the homicidal frenzy.
It was learned that when the as
sistant district attorney attempted
to question Miss Hanan, lying in a
Brooklyn hospital, the girl answered
all questions except those pertaining
to the question of whether Mrs. Lewis
had owed her money.
When a detective asked Miss Ha
nan why the other divorcee had shot
her, the girl closed her eyes and
barely moved her head from side to
side to signify .she did not know.
"Did Mr. Borland have anything to
do with it?' asked the detective.
"Not in the least" she replied.
This statement concerning Miss
Hanan's condition was made by one
of the surgeons attending her:

There was a time, when some advertise-
ments had to be taken with a grain of salt A
few misguided advertisers thought they could

Other advertisers proved that the only way ,
to advertise successfully, make regular custom-
ers, and build up good will was to tell the abso
lute truth about their goods in their advertise
ments. You can depend on the merchant or manu
facturer who advertises. The concern that tells
you frankly what it is doing is agood concern
with which to do business. The store that adver

really worth while to say to you. And compan

have confidence in them. You can safely share
their confidence. .
Inferior merchandise cannot masquerade in
the quality clothes of advertising.

Senator King. Democrat of Utah,
asked if the administration Intended
to participate lnlhe reparations com
mission, and Senator Lodge said he
did not know whether the adminis
tration had decided to recommend
appointment of an American.
"It might seem desirable to be rep
resented on the reparations commis
sion," Senator Lodge added, "but I do
not believe that involves us in any
thing of the relation of an alliance."
Discussing withdrawal of American
troops from Germany, Senator Borah
said presence of troops was requisite
to execution of the Versailles treaty.
"I am in favor of withdrawing
American troops," he continued, "but
I am not ln favor of claiming rights
and benefits under the Versailles
treaty which Trench troops secure.
If we are to have their advantages,
then every moral sense insists that
we shall do our part in the execution
of the treaty.
"We cannot take the position and
maintain tt, before the world, that we
will place on France the burden of
executing the treaty and thea claim

"We are tied In, completely, to the
