THE WASHINGTON TOIES, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 2 19U.
U. S, CONTROL OP RADIUM IS FOUGHT (Continued from tlrst Pa?e i fxliausOUe In Colorado, according to llenahen. He said that only one for eign company Is operating In the big carnollte fields 150 miles long and five miles wide and that Americans con :tltute the majority of Hie stockholders; Seventy per cent of all the carnollte 'nined in 1913 went to the Standard ompany and 30 per cent to foreigners, lenahen estimated. " One thousand claims have been marked out already. 1assage of thp Federal conserva tion plan, h emphatically declared, would wipe out Colorado.s entire min ing Industry btcaube radium is found n practically every one of Colorado's .ires. Toe business is on the verge of bankruptcy now ," he declared, "bo-r-iuse of withdrawal of mineral bearing- oreB from public entry already. Nobody has gotten rich yet on this business. Ninetv-nine per cent of the prospectors give up their lives in a. -aJn search for pood metals." A prospector will not 30 out hunting for metals on which he must pay royal tics to the Government. There have heen no new Cripple Creeks or Lead illes since the Government has with drawn so much land from public en- ry." he continued. "You should ofTer every inducement you can to these min ers. Only In that way will you gat enough radium. If you withdraw these lands, I venture to say you'll boost ra dium to half a million dollars a gram Instead of $120,000. All we want is to be Wt alone." "Is States Rights Man." Although voicing the strongest opposi tion to Federal control, lie admitted that he Is a "State rights man," and that probably Colorado would exact tribute if it retains control, without any Federal supervision. "You're just looking at this from the human standpoint, Henahan snapped as members insisted on a frauk state ment of his Federal and State rights views. Flannery was the next witness. In kplrcd by the death of a relative from cancer, he declared that he set about to discover a "red plague" cure. His experts sent to Europe returneu. with the report that radium -was an effective remedy. Then, with a small plant, he started to manufacture radium. He found starving miners in Colorado who were willing to sell for a song their carnollte ore files. Then they staked out claims until today they have ninety. These, he declared, may not give much adlum, for 350 or 400 tons of ore are needed to produce a gram of the life saver. Radium experts at -first failed to make a success of the business, but it ,s now on a good basis, he admitted. Concent Is "Coming On." He declared that while there has been only one secret extraction process an other Pennsylvania concern is 'coming on" in the business. Colorado, he declared, has enough ra dium to supply the enure wonua can er victims live times over. Two nun j:red grams, he estimated, as the amount needed for tne unitea siaif-s suuerers. I'd be willing to contract to furnish this amount in five years to the Gov ernment at a price 'ower than the Gov ernment could manufacture it at a maximum figure of JS0.000 a gram," said -tie -witness. Two grains was his com pany's product last year, and fourteen srams this year's estimates. Radium, he declared. Js twenty-five -limes more valuable n other diseases than cancer. It is a positive cure for rheumatism and other painful diseases. " 'I object to paring' any royalties to he Government," he Bald, "because it ill Increase the raw material cost so nuch that wo can't drop the price to the consumer. I'm making those claims valuable, and tile Government has not hc right to tax me. I'm doing enough 'or the Government by opening up this business. Let the Government be what It Is a Government and not go into iterorises competing with private in terests." Klannery's announcement was made in ho course of an Impassioned appeal that the Government not undertake it self to regulate radium extraction. His exact words were; "There is a philanthropist who has a. plan to put up twenty institutions In he centers of population, such as New York, Chicago, Boston, and the rest, at a coat of 115.000,000, so that all cancer victims may be treated free of charge. He wants to have five grams of radium for each of these twenty places." "That's a lot of money," interrupted 'ongressman Austin. "We're from Missouri, and I'll have to be shown." "That wouldn't be tho first time Mii- sourlans have been shown real money,"' the witness retorted. This offer Isn t so remarkable when we consider nil that the country's millionaires, suc'i as Car negie and Rockefeller, have under aken " Tollowing the committee hearing. t-'Iannery flatly refused to discuss the d'fler f urthcr. "Publicity would spoil the plan," h oclared. "but It seems to me that it's a good idea if an old man wants to use is money this way -Wtien It won't do -im any other good. That's th" raj Rockefeller and Carnegie have donr " It was apparent that Flanncn regard ed the oFslbllity of the Government MEN MUST NOT HOW) FAIR ARMS BERLIN, Jan. 21. Inspired by the belief that leaning on the arm of a woman companion is not conducive to a manly bearing, the Kaiser has de cided that henceforth no army officer is to take the arm of his wife, or any other woman, when walking. If there is to be any holding of arms, the woman must do it- (The order applies to every of ficer in the German military service and hence it is ex pected the private soldiers will emulate their superiors, thus setting the fashion for all Germans.

He would not admit as much, but plainly indicated thta he only sprung the millionaire s ot fer as a threat to prevent the Govern ment reserving radium lands.

SILOS CONTRACT WITH POLICE FILED Continued from First Page bill through Congress. When he showed the unpaid oills to several of the recal citrant policemen he received varying replies. One Will Not Pay. One Policeman asserted outright ho would not pay unless the attorney set judgment against him. A letter written by Major Sylvester to Mr. Shields, on May 1. 1913, was put ltno the record. It read: "I have tho honor to adise you that If the parties named by you do not make settlement of any account you may have ugalnst them and you pro ceed against them, if they are liable under the regulations and judgments are submitted to this department, as icqulred, the same will be placed for disposition as arc all matters of this kind." Policeman Patshcell. who saw mem bers of the House District Committee last year in behalf of the crossing po licemen, was asked what work Mr. Shields had performed. "I had nothing to do with making the contract." he said, "but the crossing policemen were advised by somebody that w had better organize. A commit tee of three came up to see Mr. Johnson and others." "Did Air. Shlelda appear before the committee? "Not that I know of. Three of us came up. but I didn't see him." Chairman Crosser figured up that the Shields fee must have been in the neighborhood of Jfl.000, if twenty-four men paid JU and seventeen t0. "I don't think all paid," -paid the of ficer. Paid $10 a Month. Policeman "W, T. Davis said he had no personal knowledge of anything the attorney did to bring about the passage of the bill, "i paid him $10 a month as agroed." said Davis. "Why did he say the money was nec cssaiy? ' ' He didn't say. except that he had lo nppeRr before committees and things like that." rollceman Lamb, of .the committee of I uiree, sam ne ucaru inuirccuy umi . 'tornty Shields had appeared before the Jlistrlct Commissioners and the com mittees of the Senate and House. "WVre you having any difficulty with members of the District Committee about the bill?" asked Chairman Cros ser. Johnson Was For Bill. "Xo: Chairman Johnson and the mem bers were for It." "What, then, did Shields have to do?" T don't know exactly: I think he ap peared here. We met him one day as we were coming In to the committee room." The cintract made by Mr Shields with the twenty-four crossing policemen has the following principal provisions: "The parties of the Ilrst part each agree to pay to the said party of the second purt tha sum of $120 for his professional services in respect to the interests of tho said parties of the first part In a certain measure to in crease the pay, etc., ,of crossing policemen, now before Congress. "In consideration whereof tho said party of the second part agrees to advise said parties of the first part, to draw all necessary papers, to ap pear for them as their counsel be fore the committees of Congress and tho PJstrlot Commissioners .v'ien in his Judgment he may drem It neces sary anil proper to protect the in terests of the parties of tho ilrst part. "Said fee to be paid In e,ual month ly Installments of $10 a::li. tho first payment to lecome iVie Immediately upon tho passage of the above men tioned net. and the balance to be paid In equal monthly installments." postscript agreement provides that Attorney Shields shall not exact pay ment of men who leave tho force for am- cause? and that If .c bill should be declared unconstltulloaal I hereby agree not to enforce my rights under the foregolmr contract lrcm and after the date of the happening of said facts." Hearing Was Interrupted. The Crosser subcommittee Interrupted the hearing on the Kahn bill In order to take up the charge made at the hearing yesterday by Congressman Johnson to the effect that Mr. Fields had ."lobbied" for the crossing police men's bill. The chairman, when he Intimated that Mr. Shields might "be a lobylst for tho Kahn bill to permit policemen and fire men to rldo free on street cars was ac cused of falsehood and the now fam ous nstflght between the two wen fol lowed.

W. Putnam, laid aside his rifle at 4 o clock tills morning, unstrapped his cartridge belt, and surrendered to Charles Baokus, of Mayvllle. Beardsley turned his firearms over to Ray F.

"That sheriff is rotten, r could have held out another week if I had enough fuel," was Beardsley's criticism of the county guardian.

The man Is not an Ignorant, Uneducated farmer, as might bo imagined. He tilka with an case and fluency of his troubles. He was at one time a teacher, and a preacher of an humble sort, and his conversation, is that of a man -who Is not without recognition of tho fact Oval he knows what he Is talking about.
