Leased Wire Washington, not. 5. Present ing further support for his charges that American soldiers were hanged overseas without court-martial. Sen ator Watson, Democrat of Georgia, tonight in the senate turned his fire on Secretary Weeks and General Pershing for their denial of his as sertions. Alluding to a statement made today by the war secretary, that "no decent man" would make charges With re spect to army nurses such as made several days ago in the senate, en ator Watson,- while disclaiming any intent to attack the nurses as a whole, said he would leave it to any impartial tribunal to Judge whether , re or Mr. Weeks was the more ae cent." He said his charge aa orig inally made was "that officers in too many rases made courtesans of the nurses." "And I can prove it," he exclaimed Reading General Pershing's state ment as made yesterday in Nash ville. Tenn., that the Watson charges of illegal hangings and inhuman treatment of privates by officers was a "most outrageous and untrue accu sation," the senator declared: hen the general denounces a senator as a liar, he had better re , member that It is within the power of the senate to bring him here and a time may come when wo will do that. If he talks that way about more senators it may be done. We have as yet no kaiser that says 'Me - and God.' I'm not going to lower myself," the senator continued, "to the level of either Secretary Weeks or General Pershing by indulging tn abuse. I simply content myself with saying that it was a great impro priety for either of these gentlemen - to publicly .condemn another without thrt slightest Investigation." Senator Watson then read a letter from an unidentified Richmond, Va., woman who said she had served 12 months as an army nurse. The let ter said: "Officers made courtesans of the nurses wherever possible and nurses who resisted were subjected to personal indignities." Mr. Watson also said be had been told by a former nurse that he had been compelled to repel the assault of an officer. - . a ' '"" More telegrams and letters in sup port of his illegal hanging charges also were presented by the senator. He submitted another photograph, which he said was of an army gal lows in France which photograph, he said, had been smuggled into the country by a Huntington, West Vir ginia, private. "Apparently there were as many gibbets as hospitals," said the senator, who for the first time gave the name Clifford L. Ayer, Jr., of the man he said had told him of hearing from a gallows guard that 21 soldiers had been hanged without court-martial. He presented a telegram from Ayer statin that an affidavit was bet? forwarded for the use of the special committee that will meet Monday to determine procedure in the investi gation of the senator's charges. Another telegram presented by the senator was from George Carborough, Aaron, Georgia, who said he served In the 605th engineers corps and de clared Mr. Watson's charges of Il legal hangings were true. Senator Watson said this witness would ap pear before the committee and "face the nabobs of the general staff." ' The senator read another telegram which asked that the senate investi gation include "the case of Albert I'urcell, of Cincinnati." ; bout which the informant said he has been able to learn nothing from the war de partment. The message said Pur cell's death occurred at a camp at San Artonio, Texas. William Gibbons of Cleveland had written, W'atson said, that he had two photographs, one taken before and the other after the hanging of a soldier against whom the writer said, the charges lacked detiniteness. The senator also said that a former service man, now living in Washing ton had given him a statement as to the hanging of four negro soldiers 'on one gallows at one time, each clad in the uniform that General Pershing wearj." The same soldier had Informed him. he said, that these men were hanged without court-martial.

Newspaper com ment on the premier's death was generally expressive of profound sorrow, but some Journals speculated on Its political significance. The Asahi Shimbun said that the tone of the premier's character was some distance behind the progress of world ideas but that his end was most glorious because it rendered his greatness still greater. The Asahi anticipated a temporary period of political unstahility and stressed theimportance of seeking an awakening by the people. The Kokumin Shimbun said Pre mier Hara's policies were "unpopular, but that does not alter the fact that his death merits profound national sympathy.". The Yamato Shimbun observes that the maintenance of the present position of the Beiyu-kat party was out of the question and that the pre mier's deal) threw a large shadow on the political horizon. On the other hand, the Chuo Shim bun, organ of the Seiyu-kal party, said that the event would prove as a most powerful Impetus toward con solidation of the partyW foundation. Police today warned the news papers to refrain from speculation regarding the motive. It is known that a document was found on the assassin, but its contents are being withheld. Viscount Kato, president of the kensei-kai, or opposition, party, vis ited the Hara residence today and offered his condolences. The tragedy did not appear to have much effect on the Tokio financial and other markets in the early trad ing, but later the tone of the stock exchange weakened and there was a slump in Btocks, which disturbed conditions prevailing In various ex changes.

On the other hand. Internal revenue officers declared today that the opin ion of former Attorney Geneial Palm er legalizing use of beer as a medi cine had overruled the prescrintion regulations, as it held that the trea sury might limit the quantity or the frequency of alcoholic medicines, but not both.

JAPANESE PRESS A Bandit Holds Up Seven Clerks In Railway Mail Car Republican A. P. Leased Wig KANSAS CITY, Mo., Nov. 67 Au thorities announced late tonight they were without definite clues as to a masked man who boarded an Atchi son, Topeka & Santa Fe passenger train from California near Ottawa Junction, Kan., early today and looted the mail car after compelling a mail clerk to bind six of his fellow work ers. Contents of eight sacks of mail were taken. No estimate of the value of the haul was available. The robbery occurred while the train had stopped at the Junction for coal. The man, according to the clerks, apparently boarded the train at Quenemo, Kan. Masked and armed, the bandit ordered the six clerks to put up their hands. He took a revolver from E. E. Doudna of Kansas City, who was In charge of the registered mail pouches. Then he compelled Doudna to tie the others with wire. Forcing the clerks to lie on . the floor, the robber spent almost an hour ransacking the registered mail pouches. He leaped from the train when It reached Holiday. The mail clerks were tied with wire. Earl Doudna. the clerk selected to truss up the others, was the only man in the mail car who was authorized to carry firearms. The robber at once selected him, the other clerks said, as the man to cover most carefully with his pistol. 'mm. DF Jff 1 ILL NOT GE CHANGED BY A Nil Republican A. P. Leased Wire WASHINGTON, Nov. 6. Assassi nation of Premier Hara will result In no change in Japan's attitude toward the Washington conference, Raron Shldihara, Japanese ambassador, said today. In a statement he declared Hara s work in shaping Japan's attitude to ward the conference was destined to prove of great benefit to mankind. A great and good man has been taken from Japan at a time when he could least ba spared, he said, adding that to carry forward the Pacific policy to which the premier had been commit ted Would be a just and worthy trib ute to his memory. A resolution ex pressing regret over the death of the premier wag announced today by the senate. The facWthat the assassin was one of their own people has tended to confirm, in the opinion ot Japanese here, apprehension of the existence of political and social unrest of which the attack appears to have been an expression. Information from Toklo that tne assassin is the son of a former Sa murai recalls to Japanese one of the most romantic and dramatic epochs of Japanese history. In the ancient feudal days the Samurai, "two- sworded warriors." were powerful throughout the empire and showed a strikiog similarity to the European nobility and gentry during the Middle Ages. Obedience to their feudal su periors even unto death was their watchword. It was birth and breed ing that counted. The Samurai lived In the castle of their Daimyo, and received from him rations for themselves and their fam ilies. Gradually with the disappear ance of chivalry the Samurai were dismissed by their lords and they be came Itinerant Idlers. Therefore they became known as "ronln," meaning "wandering people." Their descend ants have retained their pride in their ancestors, but they have no privileged social status in Japan. Many have fallen into great misery and they have inherited wandering unrest Many of the younger have turned their atten tion to politics and are known as po litical malcontents. It Is understood that the disturbed political situation In China Is causing considerable disquietude to the Japa nese delegation. The impotency of the 1'ekin government in enforcing its authority throughout the land, where provincial governors backed by their own troops are struggling for power, makes the general situation difficult of solution.

Republican of Indiana, defended the president's course. In advocating a soldiers' bonus, Senator Heflin, Democrat of Alabama, charged that the Republicans were proposing to take the tax off "the profiteers." - Senator McKellar, Democrat of Tennessee, announced that if the Reed amendment was voted down he would offer an amendment proposing the refunding of th debt owed this country by foreign nations and the use of $2,000,000,000 of the interest In defraying the cost of adjusted com pensation. Senator Jones, Dmoerat of New Mexico, accused the Republicans of attempting to delay the bonus "ur.fll in the sweet bye and bye most people will have forgotten about It." President Harding was assailed by Senator Stanley, Democrat of Ken tucky, for what he described as the "order" given to the senate to re commit the soldier bonus bilL Senator Stanley declared there was only oi power that could have made the president "turn his back" on the 4.000,000 former service men. That power, he said, was the silent. In sidious and pitiless power of Mam mon, that knew what it could do; that understood its authority." "None of the crowned heads of Eu rope would have dared to do what the president dared to do," Senator Stanley said, adding that the event would godon as a 'blot on his tory.'

Senator Watson, Republican of In diana, replying said the movement to recommit the bonus bill waa not initiated by the president, that the president acted only after he had been urged to do so by senators who pointed out that the federal financial situation to him. He said nearly one third of the Democratic senators had either voted or were paired to re commit tb3 bill and that in the face of this they were now, charging the Republicans with being "the tools of Wall street."
