If the Walsh resolution is adopted the proposed Investigation of the high cost of living by joint Congressional committee would include access to all income returns with directions to an nex in its report the profits of all persons or corporations who have had contractural relations with the Gov ernment since April 6, 1917. While the Walsh resolution has nothing to do with the Senate District subcommittee now investigating profi teering in Washington, publicity of Income returns would prove of ines timable value to that committee. The resolution also calls for a list of all the dollar-a-year men employed by the Government to whom Government contracts were issued, either as Indi viduals or to concerns with which they were connected, together with the profits derived. The resolution preamble sets forth that publicity of income returns is de manded by the public in order to stop profiteering, so the people might know who amassed fortunes when the Gov ernment was under duress of war. Efforts to obtain consideration of the Walsh measure were futile, however, and it was tabled. ROCKVILLE NEWS Washington Man Fined $40 For Reckless Automobile Driving. ROCKVDL.LE, Md Aug. 22.

Like a ghost from tho grave, one of the most pic turesque figures of the first three years of the great war has again ap peared upon the world's stago and looms today as tho man who may revive tho war In eastern Europe to, put an end to Lenine's rule in Russia. He is none other than the Grand Duke Nicholas Nicolalevitch, uncle of the late Czar. For more than two years ever since he was sent to the Crimea by the Bolshevikl he has been living In hiding, during which time he has been many times reported killed. Today comes a dispatch from Stockholm that he has arrived there from London, to take part in a great "war council" to agree upon a plan for a concerted offensive on Petro grad. This la the first hint that Grand Duke Nicholas has been in London, and It is presumed he came and went In disguise. How he escaped from the Crimea Is a mystery. Recently he was reported at an obscure village near Genoa, Italy. Grand Duke Nicholas la still the idol of the Russian masses, and his reappearance In Russia, with the bat tle cry of a savior would rally hun dreds of thousands of volunteers around his baner. "Down Lenlne first let the future take care of itself," Is the watchword of the hour, and on that theory the great war council at Stockhold Is reported to be working. Gathered there" with the Grand Duke are Gen eral Yudenltch, Premier Lianoziff, of the new anti-Bolshevist government of northwest Russia, and Sherpadsky, former hetman of tho Ukraine.
