THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, PHOENIX. SATURDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 26, 1921.
PAGE TWO UM 1 HUT QUESTION WILL GOME IIP AFTER NAVAL PROBLEM WASHINGTON', Nov. 25 Although Ihe arms conference Is taking no 6teps toward limitation of armies. It was aid authoritatively tonight that the question of land armament was in "reserve" and might come up for a general expression of policy when the naval and F a Eastern problems are out of the way. Any attempt to secure a hard and fast agreement on land estimates. It was pointed out, would involve many handicaps which do not apply to the limitation of naval power. France, with the largest army in the world, aJready has declared her unwilling ness to weaken materially her po tation undei present circumstances. Poland, which has nearly as many men under arms as France, Is now represented In the conference, and neither Is Russia, with her vast pos sibilities of man power, nor the smaller states of Central and Souths era Kurope, whose national policies are linked up with the maintenance of large armies. 1 To open up the discussion to de tailed discussion, It would, therefore, he considered necessary, , by the American delegates at least, to en large greatly the scope of the con ference. It Is realised too that the discussions might lead the confer ence far afield Into the realm of in tricate international relationships now agitating Europe In the aftermath of the World- wj In that connection, Iord Curzon's warning to France, pronounced In a public address yesterday, was read eagerly but without comment. All throughout the negotiations here there has been an effort to keep pres ent considerations of European pol icy as much In the background as possible and the view understood to be taken generally Is that precise agreement In regard to land arma. ir.ents.ls not essential to the success ct the conference. At any rate, the clearly defined purpose of the conference at the pres ent stage Is to leave possible contro versies over land armament in the pigeon hole and go ahead with the subjects which show greater promise of accomplishment. o . ' Brooklyn Recluse Leaves Fortune To Girl She Wronged Republican A. P. Leased WlreJ NEW YORK, Nov. 25 A pencilled document, purporting to be at once the will and the confession of Mrs. Margaret Easten, wealthy recluse who died in squalor in Brooklyn rec ently, reached the Brooklyn surra Kate's court today In an envelope ad dressed by an anonymous sender.

Ste Concludes Its Case Against French Bluebeard Republican A. P. Leased WlreJ VERSAILLES, Nov. 25. The prosecution today concluded Its case against Henri Landru and the de fense began bringing forward wit nesses in an attempt to disprove the contention of the state that the "Bluebeard of Gambais" Is guilty of the commission of eleven murders and the cremation of the bodies of his victims. The last state witness was Dr. Sau vez, a prominent dentist, who offered expert testimony that 29 of the 47 teeth, alleged to have been found among refuse in Landru's villa, were "indisputably human."

P. Leased WlreJ LONDON, Nov. 26. According to the London Times' Dublin correspon dent the Rathkeale work house, County Limerick, was burned yester day, allegedly by the Irish Republican army. The British military had an nounced the intention of taking over the work house, denplte protests re ceived through the Republican liaison officer. "The Incident," aays the dispatch, "seems to be one of the most serious since the proclamation of the truce. There appears little doubt that the destruction of the workhouse was de creed by high Republican authority on the ground it was a building of military Importance, occupation of which by British troops would streng then the government position In the event of a renewal of. warfare." The workhouse, is said recently to have been occupied by the Irish Re publican army. Father Of"Cousin'-J Harding Kills Self Republican A. P. Leaied Wire . CHICAGO, Nov. 25. Ephrlam Harding, father of Everett Harding, who is serving a federal pesitentiary sentence for representing himself as a cousin and confidential secretary of President Harding, today shot himself fatally.

Leased WlreJ WALSENBURG, Colo., Nov. 23. Announcement today by officials of the Oakdale mine at Oakdale, near here, that one section of the mine will be closed because of lack of orders, was characterized by John McLennan, district president of the United Mine Workers, as 'just an effort on the part of the company to get rid of some of the union men Miey don't want." Twenty-one men are employed in the affected section, according to Superintendent McLeary of the mine. Work of clearing the section up in preparation for a suspension of oper ations began this morning. The list of men affected Includes several brought to military headquar ters for examination in connection with the shooting fray of a week ago at Oakview, it was said. W. O. Moore, a check weighman, who was ordered off the Colorado Fuel and Iron company's property of the Ideal mine, was brought today to military headquarters for ques tioning regarding statements he is al leged to have made regarding the conduct of the state rangers at a camp. Adjutant General Hamrock directed an investigation at the camp be made. The Oakdale mine is owned by the Oakdale Coal company and is not af fected by the miners' strike. That the wives of the striking min ers at the Colorado Fuel and Iron company's Ideal mine near here laid down a barrage of bread against men who tried to enter the mine to report for work, the first day of the strike, was revealed here today when Col onel Hamrock, state adjutant general, In command of the military, conduct ed an investigation of a complaint made by union officials that the wife of a miner had been struck by a ranger on patrol duty at the mine. It was developed at the hearing that the accused ranger, J. A. Case, had struck the woman lightly with a stick but that he had done so only ! after she had refused to obey his order to move on. The ranger said the alter cation with the woman arose when the crowd of miners' wives had used up all their bread ammunition and had begun throwing stones. The first case of eviction of a strik ing miner from a company house was brought to the attention of the au thorities today when the family of Gabriel Gonzales moved their furni ture from the camp at Ideal to Wal senburg. Inquiry established the fact, it was announced at Colonel Ham rock's headquarters, that the wife of Gonzales was one of the women who participated in the miniature riot and bread throwing incident at Ideal mine the first day of the strike. The mine superintendent stated that the Gon zales family had been asked to move because both Gonzales and his wife always had been a source of trouble. China Governors Make Concessions In Tariff Control Republican A. P. Leased WlreJ WASHINGTON, Nov. 25. Assur ance that the Chinese local governors are ready to abandon the "Likin" tax if China is given tariff autonomy was contained in a statement issued tonight by the Chinese delegation. For many years the "Likin." an in ternational tax imposed on goods shipped -across the boundary lines of the provinces and collected indepen dently of the central government has constituted a serious barrier to trade development because it made tariff tolls almost prohibitive on goods which foreign commercial Interests have tried to send into China. The delegation's statement follows: 'Information has been received to the effect that in connection with the question of tariff autonomy in China, the provincial military and civil gov ernments of China has agreed to abolish the Likin (internal duties), at the same time, according to the petitions of the United Association of Chambers of Commerce in China. The business men in China are deter mined to secure the abolition of the Likin as soon as China is at liberty to increase her tariff rates. The ministry of finance has been making due preparations in order to carry it into effect." CHURCH TRIAL NOV. 28 CHICAGO, Nov. 25 The trial of Harvey Church on charges of mur dering Bernard J.

The Irish Bul letin, reverting to the text of the al leged secret circular issued from di visional commissioners of the Royal Irish constabulary at Belfast and dealing with the formation of unau thorized loyalist defense forces into regular military units on a territorial basis, says that Sir James Craig, the Irish office and Dublin Castle dis avow its authority, but that the Brit ish government remains silent. "There seems only one reason for this silence on the deplorable incident, which can not pass without having its effect on the present situation." says the Bulletin. "The Irish people can come only to the conclusion that the British government is the guilty party, in which case not a moment's reliance can be placed upon British good faith in the present negotiations. "The only possible alternative con clusion is that the government has been betrayed by one of its chief of ficials, who besmirched its honor; in which case it is impossible to under stand way the government has not declared its abhorrence of the policy outlined in the circular and dismissed the erring otficial Until the British government has rehabili tated itself by proof that it took no action in this hideous scheme of arm ing fanatics and calling them reg ulars, its good faith will remain sus pected and its professions of anxiety lor peace will be received in Ireland coldly." New York Vomen Police Reserves Called To Service Republican A. P. Leased Wire NEW TORK, Nov. 25.

Min lster of Finance Galvanauskas. was seriously wounded early this morning by the explosion of a bomb which was thrown through a window of his residence. The explosion occurred at 3 o'clock and the minister's house and other buildings adjoining It were seriously damaged. The concussion shook the American consulate. The attempted assassination of the minister is believed to have been the outgrowth of the high feeling exist ing in Lithuania over the govern ment's proposed acceptance of the latest plan of the league of nations for settling the dispute over v Una. Army circles and a large mass of the population are against acceptance of the plan to create an autonomous Vilna canton, which they consider would be a surrender to Poland.

Governor Small To Seek Dismissal Of Indictments Dec. 5 Republican A. P. Leased WlreJ. SPRINGFIELD. 111., Nov. 25 Wov ernor Small's line of attack against indictments charging him with em bezzlement of public funds and con spiracy to defraud the state, was laid before State's Attorney C. F. Morti mer of Sangamon county tonight. The specifications, delivered to Mr. Mortimer by counsel for the govern or, point out the nature of arguments to be. made at Waukegan, lec. 5, in support of motions to quash the in dictments. The attack on the indictments by the defense charged: "First: That the indictments, on their face, charge the governor with no crime or offense against the state. "Second: That they do not allege that the governor ever received any monev belonging to the state. "Third: That the grand Jury In returning the indicements failed an explanation and review of evidence which the defense claims "was abso lutely in violation of the constitution and statutes. Intended only to create an unfair and unwarranted prejudice against the governor and renders the indictments illegal and void." o . California Court Denies Mrs. Peete Rehearing Appeal SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 25 A petition for rehearing of the case of Mrs. Lulse L. Peete, convicted in Los Anereles of the murder of Charles Jacob Denton, was denied today by the supreme court. Upon conviction, Mrs. i'eete was sentenced to life imprisonment. The district court of appeals denied her petition for a new trial and today's decision sustains that of the district court. The application ror a re-neanng was made on five grounds: That the appelate court decision was contrary to law. That error was committed in the manner of the selection of the alter nate juror. That the court snouia not nave ruled that a revolver and holster were admissable in evidence. That it was not necessary to charge the jury that if the defendant was found guilty or murder it was tneir duty to determine the degree. That the court erred in holding that "misconduct on the part of the district attorney must have recoiled to the prosecution's dire discomfiture, indeed, if It had any effect at all." o French Government Is Deeply Aroused Over Curzon Speech PARIS, Nov. 25. The French government Is deeply aroused over the warning given to France by Lord Curzon, the British secretary for for eign affairs, in his address in London vesterday and his criticism of the French policy at the Washington armaments conference.

Arms Conference Agrees To Abolish Extra China Rights ( Continued From I'age 1) Hul Wang, one of the delegates, to day sought to. soften those expres sions and lalu emphasis on a state ment that the Ctlnese had no clash with the British. At the earae time spokesmen for the British delegates discussing tne Chinese question ex pressed views somewhat in modifi cation of what was understood to be their position at previous discussions. An indication that the crux of the negotiations on the Far East may be reached before the committee discus sions go much further developed to night when Dr. Wellington Koo of the Chinese delegation, announced that he proposed to bring the ques tion of Shantung and the "twenty one demands" treaty before the com mittee "at the first opportunity." Feeling in China, declared Dr. Koo. is so intense on these subjects that the delegation feels it must ask for the complete return of Shantung and abrogation of the treaty of 1913 even thouch the request leads to ser ious opposition from Japan. He indi cated that he would wait until the principles involving these questions were reached in natural order of committee procedure, adding that he was unable to tell how soon this op portunity might arise. Today's discussion of extra terri torial rights was based or. a state ment presented by Chung Hui Wang, chief Justice of China, detailing con ditions and askinc that action "be taken toward "improving and event ually abolishing" the present 'system. Later discussions among the dele gates was said to have revealed a general belief that the Chinese Judi cial code was sound, and that the only reason for a continuance of the foreign courts was the doubt as to the efficiency of Chinese administra tion. In the considerations of the Chinese postal administration the Chinese representatives were said to have argued that the postal service was one of the most efficient of native functions. The question of foreign postoffices was said to be of princi pal interest to Japan which was re ported to have more than 100 postal stations throughout China. The only American postal station is at Shang hai. It was Indicated that China would also urge control over telegraph and radio communications as a necessary attribute of domestic administration, and a study of that subject was at a meeting late today of the four Ameri can delegates. Maps and other infor mation dealing with the radio facili ties in the Pacific of this and other nations were furnished the American delegates by the navy department. The Japanese quarters, it was said tonight, th-- Japan sympathized with China's request that foreign postof fices b& abolished, but held that the conditions be studied before the ac tual desire can be put into effect VAUGHN & O'CONNEL; 13 NORTH CENTRAL AVE.
