Party Leaders Hurry Back to Capital Filled With Surprise and Alarm. By WILLIAM FAILIP SIMMS. I. N. 8. Staff Correspondent. The great unrest which has all but swept the country off it? feet has not spared the country's politicians. Congress, which adjourned lor the holidays in an acrimonious muddle, bids fair to convene Monday in the ?same kind of a wrangle. Old-timers of the two big parties, after a hasty Christmas visit to their constituencies, are in many ca.ses re turning to the Capital filled with surprise and alarm. They discovered that the folks back home are impa tient for a t,uick return to normal conditions and in a mood to listen to almost anybody pledged to that idea. Third Party Talked. In some parta of tl?e country ? third party la being talked of, and among the lawmakers at the Capitol there ? r? many who conaider such a thing the natural consequence of the pres ent chaoa. Not only are the old line partlea at loggerheads with one another, but each party is itself prey to conflicting opinions. And while Democrats and Republicans stand glaring at each other across the maze of problems now before Congress, factions arc op posing factlona inside the party cfciUP*. delaying action and threatr-n lng a continuation of the trouble which focussed the attention of the world on Washington during the past several months. Party rivalry has nev*r been at higher pitch than now. nor has the rivalry with the parties. The I'res dential election this year Is largely contributory to the one while the nearness of the national conven tions undoubtedly has some effect on the other.' The result la that scarcely .me of the politicians here knows "where he's at." ?Turmoil and Doubt." Vice President Marshall, speaking iit Indianapolis, reflecting the. present ?jtate of disorder in national politics, idmltted there was "turmoil and doubt" on both sides of the Senate iiisle, and that Inside both parties I here were two forces at work trying to control their destinies. A "middle party" seemed to him to be the rem edy and he delivered himself of the opinion that his own should bacome that party If It wanted to Win in 18?0. As things are now he indicated, both the big parties are lb the wrong. While some of the Senators blame the treaty and some the league of na tions. still others admit that though something is wrong they haverj't the slightest idea what it Is. "Only God Almighty knows what Is the matter with the Senate," John Sharp Williams, Senator from Mississ ippi, is quoted as exclaiming, adding, "I haven't sense enough to diagnose its case." Nothing, he said, could Induce him '.o continue as a member of that body once his present term expires. Something like the same note of dissatisfaction was observed by Re publicans In Senator Hiram John son's brief note announcing his can didacy for the Presidential nomina tion. "I fully realise the handicaps under *hich I labor," he said, "and the ob stacles which I must overcome ? ? ? Of course any success for me -must ?ome from the people themselves, not I from a certain well-known class of politicians. ? ? ? I am going di rect to the people." "There Is too much politics,' he said taut before We left for his home State .?f California. This was his wary of Mumming up his idea of what ails the present; and Senator Johnson Is gen erally conceded to be a pretty astute politician himself. Nevertheless, the most Influential Republicans profess to see danger ahead as a result of the present situ ation. Ex-PresMent Taft has Issued an un mistakable warning to the leaders of his party, urging them to get to gether on the Issues which separate them, laying particular stress on the question of the treaty, declaring that unless they do so the prolectlo" of these issues into the national cam paign would divide the Republican party antf seriously Impair Its chances ? jf victory this year.

HEURTAUX, one of Franoe's premier * fighting '' aces'' during the war, who re cently was elected to the French Chamber of Depu ties. 1 i mt not irem disposed to respond to thla appeal. While efforts to effect a com promise on the treaty have been, and are ati 11, under way by Democrats and Republicans alike, and though these may yet be successful. It seems pretty clear that the League of Nations? tin- main obstacle Iti the Imaty, If not the only one?will (he "projected into the national campaign," despite all Mr. Taft and others of his school can do. Senator IJornh. Republican, of Idaho, has written a letter to Governor Low den, of Illinois, candidate for the He publican nomination, to ask him to1 define his stand on the league. He. .-aid In the letter that this question will come before the next adminlstra jllon, whether written Into the party's platform or not, and therefore, candU dates for the Presidency should make their position plain without delay. "Those for whom I speak," he wrote, "have no intention of confining these and similar questions to yourself." League To lie laaue. Obviously, the league will be an Is sun In this year's campnlgn, and th^ warning of one of the highest ad visers of the Republican party will go unheeded. The position of the Democrats Is equally obscure, and among them th? signs of unrest are just as apparent. The doubt as to \vhose shoulders will receive the mantle of leaderjhlp. once President Wilson throws '.t off, is not conducive to the peace of mind of individual party leaders. It is ot.ly natuial that several backs should be bared to catch it. William Jeinings Bryan has returned to the fray, and next Thursday night at the "Jackson Day" dinner here, he may grab back the leadership which he let fall whi n W >odrow Wilson came upon the scene nea-ly eight years ago. Whether he does this, or is content merely to give the Democratic party the benefit of his advice and experience. It Is every where admitted that he will bj a do nlnating figure In his party again. And this may not go down without heaVtburnlngs. Situation Without I'rrrrdnit. All in all, the situation today -Is almost without precedent. The death of Theodore Hoosevelt left the Held open for all-comers In hia psrty, and what Is considered the certa'n le fusal of President Wilson to accepi the nomination for a third term | clears the road before Democratic af> pirants. To date more than twenty | two candidates and near-candldite-? 1 are already in training for the race. So far as publicly announced Issue* are concerned, there does not app?ar to be one of paramount importance.* Both parties claim to be chstmpl-inlng the same causes. Everything is con fusion, and politicians generally ap pear timid In coming forward with genuinely original planks. Ra'hor they are inclined to watch each Ovhe> and wait for an opening. There was ?evcr a time considered nore propitious for dark horses. >iidc pendent candidacies, new parties, and trick politics. Leaders of both par ties, therefore, are scurrying back t> Washington that they may be her Monday, whero they can keep at le^st one eye on the political kaleldouDope.

Mrs. Hchwamji teatlfled she aaw Mra. Brown leave her car In front of the Brown home at 0:30 the morning after the shooting. Her husband cor roborated thla statement The facts of the trtrange murder a* they bear upon Lloyd Prevoat w?re put briefly by Chief of Police Allen Straight, who has been steady In h.s belief that the boy could explain the tragedy If he could be Induced to talk I'oIX ( kiefs Stery.

The last minute Brown was seen alive, Just before 10:30 the night of his death, he said he was going t'> meet Lloyd Prevost to ride to Utlca along the very road on which less than an hour later he was shot to death in his automobile. "At 0:30, PrevosV says, he walKed along Gratiot avenue, the busiest street of the town in which he was born, and In which he knows every second person, turned over the river bridge and walked a block to the Edi son Hotel. Continuing, he says, he weht Into the hotel and up to hia and Brown's room and went to bed, departing for work In the morning. "Yet. Prevost has been unable to produce a single person among all his friends in Mount Clemens who saw him walk along Gratiot avenue and over to his hotel. He walked three blocks apparently at a busy time of the night and no one aaw him. Nor Is he able to produce any one who saw him enter the hotel and go upstairs to his room. The best his landlady can do for him Is to nay that she heard a noise &s of some one going upstairs. "There are eight or nine hours In the life of Lloyd Prevost unaccounted for by a single witness and unfortu nately for him these hours are the ones that cover the slaying of J. Stanley rfrown. I.aat Mas T? See Brows. "Prevost says he did not meet Brown again after he parted from him early In the evening of December 1*2. Yet Brown said on leaving the Marion home, where he remained until 10:;i0, that he waa going downtown to meet Prevost. And we have two rep utable witnesses to prove that Just after 10:30 Brown got out of his ma chine In front of the Edison Hotel and entered the hotel. "One of thene witnesses had had an agreement with Brown earlier In the evening and called to him, 'lley. Brown, I thought you were coming in to see me,' and Brown answered, ?Was in, but you weren't there.' "That was V>e last time Brown was seen alive by any one In Mt. Clemens. His trip to the Edison fits In with his story that he was going downtown to meet Lloyd Prevost." " The case against Cecil Vester rests entirely upon the story of a woman of tho underworld who confesses openly to the strongest of motives In telling her story'?love. Gladys Summit, known to be angry with Cecil Vestei because of the theft of her fur coat, comes to Mt. Clemens and involves her former roommate because she says she fears Lloyd Prevost will be accused of the murder of Brown un less she does so. Of course these circumstances do not entirely dispose of the strong case against the Vester woman. But even in the minds of the Macomb county authorities they greatly weaken It.

(Continued from First I'age.) ment among the American people at large. There ?u Just an Intimation In the Interview given by Sir George Paish along this line. He said: "The investor* of this country (America), including people of all Classen, must be Interested sufficient ly In this world necessity for money and raw materials. so that they may be Induced to put a portion of their savings In a gigantic bond issue to be floated by th?- allied governments for the benefit of the countries which are sorely In need of financial re habilitation." Sir Ut-orge said he was not In a position to say whether the attitude of the United States Government ha<i been sewinded on the proposed loan or whether he had discussed the wltu ation with President Wilson. But he added: "Such a proposal would necessitate the backing of the United <JUt Government as well an that or>tfii' other countries Involved. . . It would be folly to attempt such a pro ject without first obtaining the con sent of the Congress of the United States." Another vitally Important phase of the proposed "staggering loan," from the viewpoint of America ro<I Amer icans, was pointed out yesterday It was said to be the Intent of those engineering the bond Issue?the allied crowd under the leadership of Sir George Paish?to withdraw the mar ketable securities already pledged a? collateral for the Indebtedness of more than $9,000,000,000 to the United \ States. The plan would be to substitute In j place of the valuable securities the proposed international refunding bonds they are contemplating. By doing this, and by capitalizing | the tremendous Interest now due on I the nine billion debt, they would In crease the actuaJ Indebtedness to *13.000.000,000. # <1* Valuable Collateral. And, furthermore, back of this stu pendous Indebtedness would not be valuable collateral, but the Interna tional refunding s??urltles, which at least would be unmarketable, if not altogether worthless. With present day conditions In countries which would share in the ssue bordering on chaos and hank t'uploy. It Is easily seen that the In ternational bondsi. ir r security, would be of the "wild cat" tribe. Incidentally, the correspondent of the London Dally News cables his paper from New York'that "the ar rival of Paish as Grey depart*" connectlng the two names?"has aroused rumors of a colossal loan to Britain as the financial clearing house for Kurope." The American when it learned first of the proposed f"staggerlng loan." also was given to understand on K'Ol authority that Viscount Grey hid received pledges from the Wilson Ad ministration of support In floating the issue. It now appears almost certain that Viscount Grey paved the way for the mission of Sir George Paish. who ,'rankly announces himself that he Is here to "put It over." He said yes terday he would remain in this coun try until his mission is ended.
