Democratic senators in a number
f Instances said they did not attach
the importance to the document as a
peace measure that was claimed in
Republican quarters and described it
as -tnocuons" and as having a great
similarity to the League of Nations
Some. Democrats pointed to Article

" l-.reatened by the aggressive action

situation." This, they said, differed
but little; from Article X of the
league covenant, which the Repub
licans found most objectionable.
Modeled After League Pact
Senator Harrison of Mississippi,
one of the Democratic spokesmen in
the senate, in his comment said:
"The best parts of the treaty are
those provisions taken from the
Lesgrie of Nations covenant."
One of the principal effects of the
treaty, both Republicans and Demo
prats agreed, would be its termina
tion of "the Anglo-Japanese alliance.
"The real purpose of the treaty is
running masked by fine phrases,"
Senator Reed declared. It is a verbal
mbntrtrranh of Elihu Root, but not
withstanding its sugar coating, it is
nothing more or less than a quad
ruple alliance between Great Britain,
Japan, France and the United States
bv which they mutually oino eacu
rther to exert their joint power for
the control of the Pacific and for tne
maintenance of the rights of each 'in
their insular possessions and insular
dominions in the region ol the fa.

The Philosophy of
Brother Ostrich
There's something almost human about the
ostrich. Rather than face the unusual, he buries
his head in the sand thus exposing himself,
rather recklessly, to the whims of happenstance.
Isn't that just like the chap who ducks un
der the sheets the minute' the furniture creaks
Lots of folks shut their eyes when they need
them most. In the matter of buying something,
for instance the important business of spend
ing hard earned dollars.
Who gets the most for his money? The
man who buys blindly or the fellow who reads
advertising and discovers just where he can buy
what he wants at the best possible price?
Who is the most economical housekeeper?
The woman who buys haphazard, or the one who
'daily reads our advertising columns and puts
her household purchasing on a business basis?
There's no denying the great value of ad
vertising to those who read it. It protects you
against fraud and inferiority. It tells you what
is new and good, making you a wise buyer. It
saves you money by pointing out for your con
sideration only the best products and the best
places to buy them.
Don't be an ostrich.

House Passes Bill
For Appointment of
22 Federal Judges
(Republican Associated Press Leased Wire)
WASHINGTON, Dec 10 By a vote of 197 to 90 the Walsh bill for
appointment of 22 additional federal district Judges was passed late
today by the house and sent to the senate after an amendment which
would have required federal Judges to devote all their time to judicial
duties had been ruled out on a point of order.
Creation of the judgeships was advocated by Chief Justice Taft,
Attorney-General Daugherty and a group of federal judges and district
attorneys which made a survey to determine the causes and extent of
docket congestion in various districts and the means of expediting the
handling of cases. Districts to which new Judges would be allotted under
the bill include: Montana, Arizona, Northern California, Southern Cali
fornia, Northern Texas, Middle Tennessee, and Southern Florida, one each.
The bill also provides for the holding annually of a conference.
Word that the house had passed the bill creating 22 additional federal
district judgeships, including one in Arizona, set political gossip going
last night as to p. possible appointee.
The names of James R. Dunseath of Tucson and Robert C. Morrison
of Prescott are two "who have been mentioned as possibilities in the
awarding of the new tederal judgeship in this state. Undoubtedly there
will be others who will be mentioned as likely candidates.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Dec. 10. On
a crude farm wagon in the main
street of Benton, Ark., lav up to a
late hour tonight the body of Tom
Slaughter, escaped convict, who was
slain Friday by J. C. Howard, one of
the six other convicts whom the des
perado had freed late Thursday after
taking charge of the state prison
where he was awaiting execution for
Throngs from neighboring towns as
well as citizens of Benton sought to
view the body of the slain man, who,
when at liberty was feared because
of his -daring escapades. When word
reacher here today that the body had
been found and was being brought to
Benton - curious crowds began to
gather to meet the posse, which ha-1
scoured the woods where it had been
directed by Howard.
The inquest will be held Monday.
An examination of the .body revealed
three bullet wounds in the top of the
head, one-near the nose and several
in the neck and his left hand.
Positive identification of the body
as Slaughter was made by Edward
Dempsey, son of the warden of -the
penitentiary. an4 B. C.. Rotenberry,
chief of police here.
The death of Slaughter came about
directly. In the opinion of prison of
ficials, through the tiny flaws in
plans he had laid for his escape.
The bandit, in the death cell of the
penitentiary, had planned every de
tail of his escape. He had prepared a
map of every part of the prison build
ings and yard: had accounted for
every man within the walls; knew
every detail of the duties of each of
them and their hours of duty and
the routine ol the prison.
OKLAHOMA CITT. Okla., Dec. 10.
Tom Slaughter, anas Curley Stone,
referred to by his Oklahoma ac
quaintances as Curley. was a pioneer
In the Healdton oil field, and spent
some time at the beginning of the
great oil rush there as a driller, ac
ccrding to information on file in the
criminal court of appeals at Okla
homa City.
His Oklahoma history centers
mostly about Ragtown. one of the
boom centers of the original Healdton
field in Carter county. His first re
corded escapade was a quarrel with
the owner of a sandwich stand in
Ragtown. He and his companions,
the story has it, were out of employ
ment and . they contracted with the
sandwich man to dig a "slush" hole
for him. When they had finished an
argument about the pay ensued, and
the sandwich man was warned t
leave town. He did, but not until that
night, when his stand was liften and
all Ragtown was invited to partici
pate in a feast "on" Curley.
Several stories ore told of how
Slaughter left the Healdton field, the
one given most credence being that of
how he took an automobile, drove it
to Fort. Worth and told a garage pro
prietor there to write to the owner
at Rigtown and let him know where
his automobile was.
He was captured on his way back
to the field in another automobile
with a load of liquor. Pleading with
the officer that he was tired, but
would prove his identity when they
returned to Fort Worth, he was al
lowed to curl tip on the rear seat of
the car while the officer drove back.
Reaching Fort Worth the officer
found his prisoner had left him.

Georgia Senator Asks That
100 Former Service Men
Be Brought Before Com
mittee To Testify
Republican A. P. Leased Wire
WASHINGTON, Dec. 10. Names
of more than 100 former service men
were presented today to a Benate
committee by Senator Watson, Dem
ocrat of Georgia, who asked that they
be brought here to testify in the in
vestigation of his charges that
American soldiers had been put to
death in France without right of
There was no intimation as to how
many would be summoned. Assur
ance, however, was given Senator
Watson that every person would be
called if he believed they were pre
pared to give testimony directly bear
ing on the charges.
Senator Wratson read extracts from
many letters in which soldiers de
clared they knew of numbers of il
legal executions. One soldier wrote
that on a transport going to France
fourteen men were drowned for no
apparent reason.
The senator undertook to show,
and indeed announced he would
prove, that the war department list
of eleven executions did not include
all men illegally hanged or shot by
order of superior officers. A picture
of what seemed to be a gallows in
France, on which a rope was being
booked around the neck of a con
demned soldier, with several officers
on the platform and scores on the
ground, was presented by the sena
tor, who testified that It was taken
by a colonel, now in the service.
The officer's name was not re
Senator Watson stated that he de
sired to return the picture tonight,
but by direction of Senator Shellds,
Democrat of Tennessee, it was re
tained for the record, although Mr.
Shields" declared it was not worth
while as evidence if the man who
made it could not be found to testify.
Colonel W. E. Bethel, assistant
judge advocate general, from whom
the committee obtained the list of
the eleven legal executions, was in
structed to check over the Watson
list and see if any were the same.
After presentation of a letter from
Assistant Secretary of the Navy
Roosevelt, denying he had first hand
knowledge of the killing of a soldier
by an officer and the subsequent
transfer of the officer to another
command. Senator Watson explained
that use of Mr. Roosevelt's name was
due to a blunder. The letter, he
stated, was Written by Colonel Wil
liam Hayward. federal district attor
ney of New York and a former of
ficer overseas.
Quoting from his letter to Chair
man Brandegee, the senator said it
was no surprise to him that th
American Legion "composed princl
pally of the officers who organized
themselves in Paris to perpetuate
militarism in this country, should
whitewash themselves."
The commander of a legion post at
Westville, Oklahoma, the senator
said, had sent him the name of a man
readv to testify that twenty-one
Americans were executed In France
without trial. Another soldier wrote
that more than six hundred had been
illegally killed in France.
"Did these men tell why the sol
diers were killed?" Senator Brand
gee asked.
"In each case of ruthless killing,'
the senator replied, "it was stated
that men were shot down because
they were fagged and unable to

letter to that effect to Senator Wat

Mello's name was mentioned yes
terday iby the senator before the
senatorial committee. Mello saia
he did not know whether the men he
saw hanged had previously been
courtmartialed. He added that he
was ready to testify. Mello as
serted that he and other doughboys
witnessed the hangings.

in scholarly English he presented the
draft of the four powers Pacific trea
ty which, when constitutionally rati
fied, will abrogate the much-discussed
Anglo-Japanese treaty of 1911.
He explained that the treaty is
brief, simple and free from concealed

issues. At the conclusion of his real

treaty on the part or tne unuea
States delegation, the galleries burst
into tumultuous applause.
France was then called for by the
presiding officer and Vivian!, a strong
rugged figure, wearing a simple
business suit, and regarded as tne
first orator of France, responded. He
received an ovation, and speaking in
French, with passionate earnestness
and tremendous dramatic feeling,
gave an address which stirred every

phrase, "We do not ask nor wish the
United States to Interfere in Euro

Arthur Balfour, courtly, aristo
cratic, and attired in his famous Vic
torian frock coat, then spoke for
Great Britain. He was certainly a
fine example of a stately British dip
lomat. With graceful compliments
to Lodge and Vivlani he explained
the attitude of Great Britain and
brought down the audience when he
vehemently declared his profound be

by government agents seeking to

told that the packers took the atti
tude that there was nothing to ar

men who have left their Jobs," said
Mr. Meeker's statement.
"Our plants were able to operate at
about-S'l per cent of normal during
the past week and there is no indi

sensitive to conditions of supply and
