Washington, Oct. 24.?Tentative
plans for an attempted flight of
aitny airplanes around the world
has been under consideration .for
some months by air service officials,
it was learned today, but the project
has not as yet passed the prelimin- '
ary survey stage, Valuable data on
available routes have been obtained
however, and ultimately it is hopec
to send a considerable aerial squadron
on the voyage. The project will
v not be laid before Secretary Weeks .
for approval, it was said until it i
takes much more definite form.
Two of the routes considered are
that from the Atlantic coast via Iceland
and Ireland and that from the
Pacific via Alaska, the Aleutian islands,
Siberia and home via, Ire-!
land and Ireland. Air service officials
said the route offering the most
favorable conditions as to prevail- .
ing winds would be selected should
the flight be ordered, and it would
then becoimo necessary to obtain per

The question of air navigation by
pilots of one country over the territory
of another nation has been considered
by the council of the league
of nations in order to establish uniformity
of practice. So for aa the 1
United States and Canada are concerned,
a recent agreement fixed reciprocal
rights for the two nations. '
Army fliers conceived the world
curculing flight plan to line with the
reason which prompted President
ivoosevelt to send the fleet around
the world in 1908, it was said. It
would have value both as a step in
providing aerial defense throught
training and in giving the world a
better understating of American
post-war developements, fliers of
other nations have understood, up to
this time without success, would circling,

plane while the American sir service
project would call for a fleet of
aircraft trtd careful! preparations
involving considerable expenditure,
Possibly a special act of congress to
authorize a flight and make necessr
ary preparations would be necessary
should the secretary approve the
For this reason it is expected that
no definite step^ will be taken for a
vear or more. '

United States Judges Will Not Intervene?Independent
Their Fight.
New Orleans, La., Oct. 24.?Supporters
of E. B. Peddy lost their fight
?oday before a special tribunal of
federal judges to force the use of
his name on the official Texas ballot
for United States senator instead of
Earle B. Mayfield, Democratic nominee
and reputed Ku Klux Klan candidate.
The judges held that they were
without jurisdiction to grant the re
lief asked for by the Peddy faction,
adding that other questions than that
of jurisdiction were not considered.
The case was transferred to New
Orleans after an injunction had been
filed in Mobile to compel the secretary
of state of Texas to put the
name of Peddy on the ballots. Judge
Erwin of the Mobile federal court declined
to hear the case on the
grounds of no jurisdiction.
Attorneys for the fusion candidate
announced they will carry their
fight to the United States supreme
court if necessary and those repre- (
senting the state of Texas heralded
the decision as a victory for state ,
rights. 1

At the football game at Greenwood
last Thursday Connie Starnes
turned his watch over to George
Smith for safe-keeping while Greenwood
was being trimmed. When the
game was over and all the younger,
boys rushed after the team to join
:n the jollification, George reached |
in his pocket to give Connie the
watch, when to his utter astonishment,
he found nothing but an empty
pocket where the watch had been.
George was worried, but his father
was wise to the situation. He advertised
for the lost watch in the
Index-Journal, and last night the
time-piece was mailed to him by that
paper. Some young man found it on
the fair grounds and turned it in.
He said that he found George's
tracks near the watch and they indicated
that when Abbeville made
the touchdown George jumped so

government to authorize

Leathering ot surgeons.
Boston, Oct. 24.?More than 2,000
of the world's prominent surgeous
including 25 or 30 from
South American countries, were
gathered here today for the congress
of the American College of
Surgeons, Which opens its formal
sessions this evening.
London, Oct. 24.?Glasgow will be
the chief center of interest in the
political situation for the rest of the
week. The new prime minister, Andrew
Bonar Law on Thursday will
announce the details of his policythere,
and 48 hours later former Premier
Lloyd George will address a
mpptinc hpim* AMomtianied to Scot
land by Sir Robert Home, who was
his chancellor of the exchequer.
The Times political correspondent
emphasizes the importance of the situation
in Glasgow, which, it says, is
due to the strength of the communistic
party among the industrial workers,
adding that this is largely on
account of the reluctance of the
Glasgow members of the parliament
to abandon the coalition. The write*
suggests that this position "is likely
to give impetus to the Scottish home
rule movement.
It is hinted elsewhere that Bonarj
Law's re-election as member from tbe
central division of Glasgow is in no
wise certain, and that he will be opposed
by Sir George Paish as a free
liberal, in addition to the labor candidate.
Former Premier Asquith is
to speak in Glasgow next week.
In parts of Grea^ Britain, notably
the Lancashire manufacturing towns
and Glasgow, there are laTge resident
Irish communities. How they will
cast their votes is arousing interest
both here and in Ireland. The Freeman's
Journal, Dublin newspaper,
crystalizes its advice to them in the
'"Wherever you see a die-hard
head, hit it" '
T. H. O'Connor, whose Irish constituents
in Liverpool are dissatisfied
with him because he remained a
nationalist and because, although a
,home ruler he supported neither Earaon
de Valera nor Michael Collins
in the House of Commons will probably
be opposed by a Sinn Fein

carrying nearly 400 quarts
of whiskey were captured by officers

# I
cupied by two men.

Coal Strike in South Wales.
London, Oct. 24.?The union min
ers have posted notices throughout
the South Wales mining district
that a general strike of the minors
will occur a fortnight hence unless
the nonunion miners join the federa

Marion, 111., Oct. 24.?The special
grand jury which today resumed its
investigation of the Herrin mine
killings aftera (month's recess, late
thi3 afternoon returned an indictment
for murder naming 48 persons
and announced it had completed its
work. This makes 414 persons the
grand jury has indicted in connection
with the rioting in which 23
men were killed.
Circuit Judge, Hartwell, before
whom the indictment was returned,
expressed the opinion that the true
bill is illegal because it was returned
at the September term of; court
by a grand jury impaneled iby the
July term of court. State's Attorney
De Lee Duty expressed an opposite
opinion and stated he would appeal
to the state supreme court if the indictments
were declared illegal.
Those indicted today were charged
with th? death of Ignace Kubinis
the last victim of the rioting to expire
who die^ since the grand jury
took a temporary adjournment 30
days ago. Only a few witness were
heard today and they are said to
have told of wounds inflicted on
Kubinis, which are said to have resulted
in) his death.
In the total of the 414 indict
ments, 77 individual persona .are
named, some of the men having as
high as nine indictments changing
murder, rioting and assault facing
them. Twenty-one of the individuals
are charged only with rioting and assault,
leaving 56 indicted for murder
of the total number of indictments
215 are for murder, 103( for assault
and 116 for rioting.
The legality of final 48 indictments
returned today may not he de
cided until next year, it was stated
tonight, because it was said there
probably would not :be an opportunity
to test the jury's proceedings
until the indictments voted today
are called for trial, which is not expected
before 1923.
