C, Dec. 26. E. V. Debs, socialist leader, whose 10-year prison sentence for violation of the espionage act was commuted on Christmas, came here today from the Atlanta federal penitentiary and called on President Harding and At torney General Daugherty. Mr. Daiigherty said Debs came of his cwn volition, while Debs declared liis visit was at the "request" of the attorney general and that he was given a ticket to the capital by the warden without choice of destination, although he had planned to go im mediately to his home at Terre Haute. Ind. After his conference .with Debs, the attorney general declared in aj statement that there was no unusual condition attached to the commuta tion of the sentence, that no advice was offered to Debs nor was any re quested, and that he hoped Debs would direct his talents to a useful purpose. No statement was made after the White House conference, but on reaching his hotel Debs broke his silence and declared he would devote his time to securing tlie freedom of all prisoners. He added that he had discussed his opinions with President Harding in order' that there might be no misunderstanding as to his principles and ideals. Debs arrived at 9 a. m. He left Atlanta in a .day coach, giving the extra fare to Russian re lief, but about 10 o'clock last night, according to friepds who accom panied him, he changed to a sleeper. He first planned to leave Washing ton when his calls had been paid, but tonight it was decided to remain over until tomorrow night to confer Winter rain conditions unequalled for 32 years developed last week and culminated yesterday in almost continuous downpour all over northern and central Arizona. While the unusual precipitation would tend to s"ap the crude, grass of the cattle ranges hereabout, the long delayed soaking was a marvelous good thing for the vast majority of cattle and sheep raisers of the state, particularly those to the south. That the sheepmen will find the best spring desert feed in their experi ence, was the opinion of M. B. Hazeltine, treasurer of the Yavapai County Cattle Growers' association, in a statement to the Journal-Miner last eve ning.

AMERICAN COURT ACT; DE MUffi'S ROMANCE (Associated Press Night Wire) SENECA, Kans., Dec. 26. Mary De Mumm, eight years old, through a recent decision of a New Jersey court, lost her American citizenship and became a German baroness. The court decreed that Baron Walther De Mumm, millionaire champagne producer, husband of the late Ma dame Frances De Mumm, formerly Miss Frances Scoville of this town, should have the custody of the daughter,' who has been living with her maternal grandparents. She must be returned to her father by March 1, the court ordered. The international romance of Bar on Walther De Mumm and Frances Scovill attracted wide attention in 1913. They met while Miss Scovill were married in London the same year. The daughter was born in Frankfort, Germany, in 1914. The mother's sympathy for the al lied cause and the baron's love fo his fatherland caused an estrange ment. Madame De Mumm later came to America and by a special act of congress her American citizen ship was restored. Madame De Mumm returned to France to fight for her share of her husband's prop erty which the French had seized when the war broke out. A legal separation had been agreed to in 1918. Madame De Mumm died in Paris May 6, 1919.

Farming as well as stock raising interests were rejoiced over the steady soaking rain, which . did not merely run off in quick freshets, but penetrated and wet the ground thor oughly. The tarms project near Jerome Junction, where the farmers arc this year combining dairying to a great degree with their other work, is fortunate for not only will the ground be soaked 4ut the reservoir at Lake Watson will be filled to overflow ing. Tlie increased dairy production of this district is expected to supple ment the supplies of Prescott and the Fred Harvey system. Southern Yavapai county stock ranges which have missed the oc casional autumnal showers, and as a consequence have suffered rather acutely from drouth, derived vast benefit from the rain. The Schultz- Mullen tracts in the Santa Maria country, for instance, have been needing just this rain. Rain as late in the winter as this is certainly unusual, especially when it is considered that along the plateau above the Mogollon rim, there is also rain. Some old-timers consider this rainstorm in the class with that which in February, 1890, swelled the Hassayampa and took out the Wal nut Grove dam with its resulting loss of life and destruction of prop erty. That disaster, the worst in the history of the state, is historical and its extent is known to all Yavapai people. CAPITALISTIC REM I IN ALL RUSSIA I "Red" Roberts, noted end of the Centre team, and his equally noted teammate, Alvin (Bo) McMillan, were the Centre stars, although the work of the other Kentuckiana showed that the team is not a one man machine. The work" of Roberts was par ticularly noticeable, his sensational j catches of forward passes, his line b' rl- n rnd his work in interfer- ' ence being cheered by the specta tors. Rqberts made Centre's first touchdown within five minutes of the opening gun. With Roberts leading the inter- fcld's manager refused to allow him to proceed when he learned that the Prescott boy had suffered a broken right thumb in the third round of the match. In the third stanza, Refeid had Lovett in' a bad way. But the broken member prevented him from finish ing hi sman.
