I IS LIKELY rs IRE Defendants to Demand Jury R. K. MacLea Accused of Violating Oath By Divulg- ing Information. , Hearing At Rock-ville. - -. lit - 1 f 8 COLLUSION FORMER EMPLOY MONDA STIRS EMERI Charging that boarding house keepers, doctors, and others of Marseilles, France, are grafting against Immi grants destined for America, and aro In collusion to hold, temporarily at least, families destined for the United States, have been made by Congress man Good of Iowa. Mr. Gooh Is highly incensed and promises some official action of investi gation. He declares that conditions there should not be tolerated, and he has taken the matter up with Secretary of Commerce and Labor Nagel, and rlth the State Department Sent For His Family. Congressman Good became interested In the case of Thomas Risk, a Syrian, and naturalised cltlren of Cedar Rapids, In Mr. Good's district. Risk has accu mulated a. small fortune of several thousand dollars In the United States, and he recently sent word to his family to Join him. He sent them funds, which with the sale of household furnishing netted a tidy sum. The family reached Marseilles from Beirut without event, but at Marseilles the steamship company refused them passage declaring that Mrs. Risk's eyes, and the eyes of Mike, the little son, were in such condition that they would not be admitted at New York. Mrs. Risk sent an appeal to her husband, and he took the matter up with Con gressman Good. Mrs Rink's letter, a pathetic 'appeal for Justice, is on file in the Department of Commerce und Labor. In it she declared that her eyes and the boy's eyes had been examined In Beirut by a specialist who chnrged $G. and that thev had been pronounced all right Through the State Department, a report was obtained from the Ameri can consul general at Marseilles saying that the family had trachoma. Calls It Conspiracy. Congressman Good declared today that he believed the entire mattei to be a conspiracy to hold immigrant families with money in Marseilles until their money was gone. Mrs. Risk begs for opportunity to see her husband. The entire case has an Intimate bear ing on the tentative decision by Sec retary Nagel announced a few days ago, In whJch he holds that the family Of a naturalized citizen, particularly his minor children, have a right to free entry Into the country of which their rather is a citizen. Th Risk case has been held up pend ing the giving of a final opinion and decision by tho Secretary on the ques tion of the admittance of minor child ren. The law as at present Interpreted, permits the free entry of tho wife of a naturalized citizen, hut excludes his children, unless they each pass the ex amination of the Immigration officials. Under this status, if little Mike really has trachoma his entry Into tho home in the new land wilt bo forbidden.

SECOND SHIPMENT SELLING FAST Grosner's Great Sale of Kuppenheimer Suits At Its Height BIG VALUES, LITTLE PRICES Necessary to Act At Once In Order To Get One of These Suits. H . -ift.f'fa-ia s --4VMVMK m ' ,m ... v ' ? BSfcJ" fwl Jm III MISS ORRIE WEAVER SMITH, Daughter of Glen Echo Councilman. LOCAL DEMOCRATS FAIL TO SETTLE T HEIR FAMILY ROW Costello Faction Rejects Proposition Made By W. J. Neale. The proposition of William J. Ncalo to settle Democratic differences in tho Dis trict by forming a central committee of s'xty-slx members Is set down as "ar rogant and too absurd to bring to the attention of our committee for consid eration," In a letter written by Chair man Robert E. Mattlngly, of tho Cos tello committee, to John Boyle, who is a strong Buprorter of the legality of the Costello committee. "To reducj or Increase the size of our committee, even if wo were so disposed, Is absolutely beyond our power, and tuuld be a misrepresentation of the in terests of the Democracy of the Dis trict of Columbia," assorts Mattlngly. Despite the attitude taken by tho Cos tello committee, J. Fred Kelloy still holds I ho fundB and books of tho local Democratic organization nnd seems no rrore disposed to turn them over to the Costello committee than to W. J. Neale, who says he Is secrotary of another committee, but who, so far as Mat tlnglj Is informed, docs not represent a committee at all. Congressman D. J. Lewis Is Guest at Reception Congressman David J. Lewis, of the Sixth Maryland district, was tho guest of honor at a meeting held at the home of Edward H. Jones. In Chevy Chase, last night. Tho reception was well attended, and piedtctlqns of Demo cratic success, In everything from dis trict to national elections, were made freely. Among those who attended the reception were J. A. Kellhei. Charles W. Plmper, B. Ashbv Leaell, C. D. Cuglo, A. J. Cummlngs, Edward J. Murphy, R. E. L. Yellott, Dr. 8. N. Barker, Barry Hohun, W. I. Demlng, E. W. Donn, and W. L. Offutt. On motion of tho Commonwealth con sideration of tho Glen Echo blue law cases was indellnltcly postponed today In police court in Rockvllle. It was slated to be likely that an agreement will be reached by counsel before tho end of the week that tho cases shall be railed up on Monday. When the cases aro called pleas of not guilty will bo entered by John A. Gar ret, counsel for tho defense, and a jury trial demanded. This trial will take place In November at the regular term of the circuit court. Tho four em ployes aro. Miss Orrlo W. Smith, daugh ter of a Glen Echo councilman, and a ticket seller at tho park; Miss Viola Collins, another ticket seller; CJbboI Husband, operator of tho "carrousel," and Leroy Hill, operator of tho minia ture railroad. The charge against tho four employes Is violation of tho law against work ing on Sunday. A week ago it was in timated that arrests would be made on the chargo of selling merchandise on Sunday, which Is a much graver offense in tho eyes of tho law. v or working on Sunday tho maximum penalty Is $5. For soiling goods on first conviction a fine of from $J0 to $00 may be assessed and on second conviction tho Una may run from 150 to $100 with ten to thirty days In jail Manager L. B. Schloss, ot Glen Echo Park, said today that hu had In hand "legal evidence th.it parks and resorts In Baltimore and elsewhere In tho Stuff aro open on the Sabbath and In a great many thcattlcul perfoi manees aio given, liquors sold and all amusement devices In operation. ' This evidence Mr. Schloss announces will be laid before Governor Golds borough and discrimination against Glen Echo alleged. "I shall politely but firmly ask the governor to have the blue laws en forced throughout tho entire State If they are to be enforced against Glen Echo," said Schloss, "and If they are not I shall Instruct counsel to start im peachment proceedings against every county and State official in Maryland concerned in tins aiscriminauon. Vaudeville and Circus Free At Glen Echo Charges that R. IC MacLop. who Is writing a scries, of articles In a Now York nowspaper attacking the tariff board, has violated his oath of office in divulging confidential Information which he swore to keep secret, aro made by Chalrmnn Emery of tho board. Emory exhibited to reporters a copy of tho oath which he said MacLea had taken and In which it stated "so help mo God" that tho man taking tho oath promised not to reveal any of tho material which he obtained in investigating trade prices as a means of gathering tariff data. Emery said that MacLea had been an Incompetent employo and that his resignation had been sought many times during tho year that ho had been In the scrvlco of tho board, but that each time MacLea had asked to bo retained. Ho was finally dismissed May 1G, with a leave of absence extending to May 31. at which tlmo his actual connection with tariff board work was severed. Emery said that MacLca's work re lated entirely to the cotton schedule. Ho was specially employed to prepare an indictment of that schedule In the Pavne-Aldrlcli tariff law and ns far as Emory Is informed, MacLea knows nam ing about the wool scnpdule. MacLca's charges that tho board sup pressed Information and that Its findings were hason on raise mrormation and so arranged ns to befog tho real tariff situ ation, were declared by Emery to be entirely without foundation. Ho de clared that MacLea was trying to "got even" with the hoard. Emery Is considering tho advisability of making a series of replies to Mac Lea's chnrges as thev appear serially In a New York newspaper. $i.oo Visit the N. G. D. C $i.oo HARPERS FERRY.

The Senate lato last night passed the army bill for tho second time this ses sion. Tho bill as passed carries a total i of K0OO,CO0, and is stripped of most of j tho legislation which President Taft ; when ho vetoed the bill in the first place found so objectionable. Tho bill omits tho provision that would disqualify Gen. Leonard Wood from serving as chief of staff. The pro visions for reduction of the cavalry, for longer term of enlistment, and for reorganization of the divisions of tho War Department were .eliminated. Pro vision Is retailed for maintenance of various useless army posts. Senator Bacon was beaten In an at tempt to limit tho appropriation so that not a dollar could be used to support the army If vent into foreign territory by the President when Congress was in session without the consent of Con gress.
