Country May Disappear if
It Does Not Get the Help
It Needs, Clemenceau
Says in Chicago Speech
French People Seeks Only
Peace, But War Is Being
Forced "Upon Them; Is
Frequently Applauded
Chicago, Nov. 2 8 (by tho Asso
ciated Press). Standing with out
spread arms before an audience
that packed the auditorium,
Georges Clemenceau today pleaded
with- America to save. France from
possible extinction.
Patiently seeking to explain
away the charges of- militarism and
imperialism brought against his
'country, the old Tiger declared that
France sought only peace, but that
war wag being forced upon her.
"If Franco does not get tho help

were to disappear, 1 believe that
some day tho peoplo would begin
to look around and ask if some
thing had not disapeared that had
brought life to tho world."
The aged premier's audience
hung on his every word, interrupt
ing him twice to drive him behind
a device which would carry his
weak voice through the big house.
He was Interrupted by frequent
outbursts of applause.
America's Test
Clemenceau took for his text the
epitaph that he read last week on
Grant's tomb in New York Let
us have peace.''
"Since tho world has been," he
continued, "it has always been the
feeling in every mans heart thai
he wanted peace. Hut General
Grant, when he uttered those fam
ous words, knew very well that
before there could be peaco there
must be war.
"It is a great pity that war is
so cruel: that it brings with It
bloodshed and things wo hardly
fhintr of now. Nevertheless,

spiring time when men gave their

and most exquisite part of human
heart and thought.
"But that is done, tno war Is

our mission to reason with and
convince others. We must ap

way or other and convince that
power that it should get behind
our cause.

"Therefore, let opinions speak.

this has not been true since the
Naturalization Law of 1906 when
tho standard was raised and only
properly rptaiified citizens were ad

"No twelve hour day prevails, or
exists in the mines of Nevada," said
Mr. Rives.
"Secretary Davis is, of course,

Naval Board to Investigate
the "Disgraceful" Con
duct at a Football Game
on Last Saturday
, Washington Nov. Appoint
ment of a naval board to investi
gate the "disgraceful" conduct of
midshipmen at. a ball at Philadel
phia Saturday after, the annual
Army-Navy foot liall panic, was an
nounced late today by Secretary
Denby at the conclusion of a
tetlKtby conference with Hear Ad
miral Henry 1'. Wilson, superin
tendent of tiie naval academy.
The Incident, it wus said, was not
discussed at today's cabinet meet
ing, but Prexirieiil Harding was de.
scribed as regai'iling it as a dis
couraging and deplorable manifes
tation of laxity in prohibition en
forcement. Sccretarv Jienhv in announcing
the appointment of the board of
! inquiry the membership of winch
was not M'idc public, emphasised
that lis Investigation would be
directed towards fixing responsi
bility for conditions that maoc pos
sible this disgraceful incident and
was not intended to "briny; to book
the midshipmen themselves.''
Court martial of midshipmen,
be Indicated, were not expected to
result unless individual features
not thus far brought to his atten
tion were developed by the inves
tigation. The purpose, ho said
was to prevent a repetition of lin.
affair rather than to punish par
ticipants. Tiie board, it was add
'ed. will also seek to determine
whether officers of the naval acad
einv had been derelict In their con
nection with the affair. Regard
ing the alleged drinking Incident, as
having been established as a fact,
the lir1. it was said will Investi
gate at Philadelphia, but will con
fine its sittings to Annapolis.
The department's interest in the
episode, it was made clear, was
strictly a matter of military dis
cipline. State Prohibition Director Davis
of Pennsylvania, who was in con
ference here today with prohibition
bureau officers, ' declined to com
ment on the liquor allegations fur
ther than to say that apparently
the stocks of contraband bever
ages had been taken to the city for
the occasion or the Army-Navy
game and distributed in the vicin
ity of tho hotels. His conference
here had.no connection with th"
midshipmen's affair, he declared,
but was for a decision of depart
mental matters.
Pittsburgh, Pa., Nov. 2S. Dis
covery ot j-lch deposits of radium
oro In - the Belgian Congo has
caused a break of $50,000 a gram
In the price, But the full extent of
the find will not bo known until the
deposits have been further ex
plored, officials of the Standard
Chemical company of Pittsburgh
said today. The officials explain
ed that tho company has furnished
the world with 75 per cent of its
radium supply, has been forced to
refine from 500 to GOO toiis of ore
to obtain a gram of radium.
This ore was mined in Colorado
and Utah. Reports from the Bel
gian Congo, they said, showed that
the ore there yielded a gram of
radium to every few tons refined.
The Pittsburgh company has ar
ranged to market the radium ob
tained from the Belgian Congo de
posits, the officials said. They ex
plained, however, that the discov
ery had not affected operations in
this country, adding that the or
der to close down their properties
in the Paradox valley of Colorado
was merely a seasonal proposition.
The Colorado properties usually
cease work in tho winter months
as mining always is "abreast of
refining," they said.

Pershing Has No Reason to
Think That the Immediate
Future Will Bring About
Cessation of War
Minneapolis, Minn., Nov. 2S.
An appeal to the notion to "look
cold, hard facts in the face and i
not forget our obligations in the
blind hope that wo may nob again

ed an address delivered here today
bv ie:ierat Pershing under tho
auspices) of the American Defense
"At present,'' we do not see def
inite indications, but none of us
can tell' whether we shall have
war in five, ten or twenty years."
General Pershing said. "if we
knew now to a certainty that
armed conflict would conic in
twenty years, there would be an
immediate demand for prepara
tions. Yet that is the approximate
interval that we have had in the
past between major wars. There
is no reason to think that tho im
mediate future will bri'iT about a
cessation of war even though it
was said that we entered the v orkl
war to bring abort the end of
Military Training
Genera'! Pershing devoted most
of hiu address to discussing . tho
value of military training as a
school of good citizenship, making
reference in this connection to the
findings of the recent educational
conference in Washington. Thd
conclusions of that conference, hs
said, are that tho training given
in reserve elements of the army
and at civilian training camps
"constitute an effective machinery
through which much ea be done
not only to benefit the individual
from tiie standpoint ot his physi
que and self discipline, but from
the standpoint of bis relations to
the government that protects him
and which he. is under obligations
to defend."
Tho chief of staif stressed again
draft statistics that show uO per
cent of the young men called out
during the war to have been physi
cally sub-normal, largely due to
effects curable by proper training;
and that one-fourth of the per
sons examined were "unable to
read and write our common lan
guage, and that more than ten
per cent cannot even successfully
speak English."
Losing Our Balnncc
"That means,' General Pershing
continued, "that some 10.000.0u0
(of the American pcoplel do not
know our tongue. " We
cannot avoid tho ((inclusion that
wo are losing our balance and our
own self respect unle.i3 we attack
the problem vigorously.
"1 do not 'suggest military train
ing as a cure for ull civic ailments,
but 1 firmly believe that it incul
cates ideals ot honor and duty in
our young men that must consti

dozen or so amendments to the
journal which ho had been pro
pared to offer.
Not alone did tho democrats
show by their tactics that they
were unalterably opposed to con
sideration of tho Dyer bill, but
through their leader, Senator Vn
derwood of Alabama, said go plain
ly. Senator Underwood, taking the
floor late In the afternoon, told the
majority leaders that the demo

The Dyer bill itself was scarcelj
mentioned in the senate until aftef
twu hours of tho filibuster had
passed, but the statement from
Senator Underwood opened up a
debate on the measure which rang
ed from the Hall-Aiills murder case
In New Jersey to tho Japanese
question in California, but all cen
tered about the anti-lynching leg
islation. Senator Edge, republican of
New Jersey, advocated enactment
of tho bil'l, declaring that in a
number of states lynchings were
uinked at and some legislation was
needed to allow the federal gov
ernment to step in. This argu
ment brought the statement from
Senator McKellur, democrr.t, of
Tcncssee, that one of tho most re
markable examples of unpunished
crinns was in New Jersey, al
though nine-tenths of th" penpl-j
of the United States, could, with
out difficulty, put their finger on
the murderer.

Associated Pres. I. "For reasonJ
which seem to them sufficient and
conlrollin;,', the grand jury took
no action in the Hall-Mills nu;r
dcr case and laid tlu matter over.
This docs not mean necessarily
that tho matter cannot bo taken
u)i again by this or a subsequent
grand jury."
With these words Forcmuii
Gibbs ot the Somerset county
grand jury late today made known
the fact that no indictment had
been returned In one of the most
mystifying murder dramas that has
faced the country in many years.

evidence to holster up his theory
a.s to who killed the l!ev. Kdward

ed his star witnesses and then set
tled back to await the jury's de
cision. Outside the jury room somo one
else was awaiting the decision. It
Was Mrs. Frances Noel Hall, tho
rector's widow, who had rushed to
the court house this morning in
the hope ot appearing before the
grand, jury and w ho had not been
granted access,
Itcft'lvcd Decision Stoically
She received Hie decision as she
I. as receive! alt other develop
ments in the case stoically with
scarcely a trace ot emotion.
She received her first word of
the jury's decision from a member
ot that body. Coming out of the

paper to her lawyer, Timothy N.
Pfeiffcr of New York, who
throughout the ilay .lad been seat

Hull and her confidents. . liis) Sal-.,
lie Peters. He at once fcotmnuni
cated tho message to his client.
Then, while Foreman Gibb was
issuing his formal statement, Mrs.
Hall rose. Assisted by lawyer and
friends, she passed from the foyer,
where, all day she had subjected
herself to the star.-s of tho curious
ami made her way to her car. The
trio at once set out for tho Hall
homo in New Urunswick.
Mr. .Mott. appointed to direct the
investigation, becaio of criticism
of the manner of which it was
handled In early stages, pinned lus
hopes to th" story told him by
Mrs. Jane Gibson, the quaint char
acter who bad appeared in the
mystery drama under tho caption
of the "Pig Woman."
The woman swineherd wlms"i

Then tee door closed behind the
woman who claimed to have rec-'
Agnized members of the death

Surprise Witness
l'ut Mu, Gibson was not thu

as a surprise witness. Charles AI
paush, a jitney driver from Som
erville. The stale maintained that
his testimony regarding a machine
ho had seen standing near a lana,
leading to the scene of the mur
ders on the night they occured
would serve to corroborate tho
identification of Mrs. Gibson.
Foreman Gibb declined to en
largo upon his formal statement

strict silence,- so that some doubt
remained In tho minds of the news

actually had haltotted, as reported,
or had tacticly agreed not to con
sider the case further.
