FOREST AND BRUSH
FIRES STILL BLAZE : THROUGHOUT EAST 6,000 Persons Homeless in New Jersey, Where Flames Are at Their Worst NEW YORK FIGHTING FLAMES New York, May 7.—OP)—Despite the three day battle waged by thousands, forest and brush fires were still burn ing today on many fronts throughout the drought-parched eastern states. In New Jersey, where all but two of the worst fires were out or under control, state authorities and Red Cross agencies were supplying food and shelter for families in the fire swept areas. No official checkup of the number destitute by the fames has been made and estimates vary from 5,000 persons to 100 families. Governor Morgan F. Larson direct ed Adjutant General Frederick Gil kyson to turn over to the fire war den's department tents, cots and other equipment from National Guard stores that can be utilized in caring for refugees. Gilkyson said arrangements had been made to furnish temporary quarters for the homeless in the Na tional Guard barracks at Sea Girt. Governor Larsen also ordered that two unfinished dormitories at the New Lisbon home for the feeble minded be made available. Showers Aid Firemen A few scattered showers aided fire men in Ocean county, but there was no rain yesterday in Monmouth county where a serious fire threat ened Tuckerton. New York fire wardens and volun teers still were fighting forest and brush fires in a score of places and conservation department officials said the fire hazard was now more seri ous than at any time this year. Massachusetts authorities ordered the trout fishing season closed today as an emergency measure in the battle against hundreds of fires blaz ing in woodland areas. The state conservation commissioner ruled that every able-bodied man who ap proaches the scene of .a forest fire be compelled to join the fire fighting force under pain of arrest and a fine. Blaze Sweeps Mountain Connecticut firement and volun teers, fighting a blaze on Mount Riga since Sunday, said the blaze was under control in their territory but was still burning across the New York and Massachusetts state lines. While several fires in Rhode Island were extinguished or under control, fresh crews were called to replace fire fighters who have been striving to check a blaze near Canonchet. The village of Bonny Eagle, near Hollis, Me., was save with a $2,000,000 power plant there after flames, which had burned over 15 square miles, crept within half a mile of the place.

Including the pairs, the senate ■ctood 34 Republicans and 13 Demo crats for confirmation and 22 Repub licans, 26 Democrats and one Farmer- Labor against. Recalls Brandeis Fight The contest against Judge Parker was one of the most intense since 1916 when the senate confirmed Louis D. Brandeis, of Massachusetts, by a close vote after weeks of discussion. It is comparable to the bitter con troversy of a few weeks ago over the confirmation of Charles Evans Hughes as chief justice. It has been 36 years since the sen ate rejected a nominee to the su preme court. Twice it refused to confirm nominees of President Cleve land in 1894. These two appointees were from New York and were op posed by Senator Hill, Democrat, of that state, a bitter political foe of Cleveland. Protests by the American Federa tion of Labor and the National Asso ciation for the Advancement of the Colored People contributed mainly to the opposition to Parker in the sen ate. However, the debate centered al most entirely on his attitude toward labor. Senators Borah, of Idaho, and Norris of Nebraska, Republicans, led the opposition. Senators Overman, Democrat, North Carolina, and Fess, Republican. Ohio, carried the ten day contest for the nominee of Presi dent Hoover. Borah Flayed Decision Senator Borah confined his attack on Parker to his decision as a circuit judge upholding the injunction re straining the United Mine Workers front soliciting membership among miners who had sigped “yellow dog” contracts, binding themselves not to join the union. The Idahoan contended Judge Parker by this decision had upheld the "yellow dog” contract and that this attitude toward labor would en force its servitude. He insisted Parker had gone "out of his way” to use a supreme court decision sup porting his course in the labor case whereas another supreme court de cision might have been used as a pre cedent for not upholding the injunc tion. He did not contend the injunc tion should not have been granted but he said Parker had ignored the plea of the mine union that the re straining order was too broad in that it prohibited solicitation of miners even by peaceful persuasion. Attorney General Mitchell contend ed Parker could follow no other course than to uphold the injunction. In a letter to Senator Overman, Parker defended his decision on the same grounds. Blames Socialists Senator Fess likewise contended that Parker was bound by the su preme court in making his decision. The Ohioan raised the contention that the fight against Parker was one actually inspired by the “socialistic movement” and he charged opposi tion had been stirred by leaders of that movement. He said the fight KING VISITS AILING NURSE WHO HELPED HIM WIN BACK HEALTH England Again Sees th 9 Royal Couple in Humane Role So Often Played By MILTON BRONNER London, May 7.—White-chapel, in London's crowded East Side, the oth er day had striking proof of the fact that King George V of England does not forget. For, although he has not yet com pletely recovered in strength, he made the long journey down there from Buckingham Palace to pay a visit to 40-year-old Catherine Black, a member of the nursing staff of London Hospital, who has been quite ill and now is convalescent. The whole thing was done very quietly. A big car drove up with out any escort of any kind. An eld erly man in a big overcoat, and a sweet-faced woman dressed in a brown toque trimmed with gold and a long brown coat, got out and start ed for the hospital. It is no unusual sight to see elderly couples visit the hospital. But the wise East Siders at once knew this was no usual visit, because they saw Lord Knutsford, chairman of the hospital, and the hospital staff, bowing low, w r hile several “Bobbies” stood stiffly at attention. The East Siders took another look. “Why it’s the King!” “And the Queen!” “It's The King!” Inside, a pale-faced woman, wait ing in a special room, showed by her surprise and joy and pride that she knew who the visitor was to be. The man she had nursed back from death's door was now coming in his turn to cheer her on to health. It’s the kind of simple, human thing the royal family is always doing, and which has endeared them to the peo ple. Sixteen months ago King George lay in Buckingham Palace almost at death’s door with pneumonia and other complications. It was recogniz ed that it was a case not only for great doctors and specialists, but very largely also for careful nursing. The thoughts of Queen Mary at once turned to Nurse Black, a capable woman who had served as Staff Nurse and Sister in the Queen Alexandra Imperial Military Nursing Service for the whole duration of the World war. So Nurse Black was the first one call ed to the bedside of the sick king and she was the last to leave. Battling For Life When he was battling for breath, with knife-like pains stabbing his therefore was one aimed directly at the supreme court. There was little discussion in the debate of the negro protest. The National Association for the Ad vancement of the Colored People complained that Parker as the Re publican nominee for governor in 1920 asserted the negroes were not ready to assume the burdens and responsibilities of government. Senator Overman said that state ment, made in the heat of a cam paign, should not be held against the nominee. Senator Parker wrote a letter to Senator Overman assuring that he was without racial prejudice and calling his record into account. The two men rejected in 1894 by the senate were William B. Horn blower and Wheeler H. Peckham, po litical enemies of Senator Hill. Cleveland Named White Three days after rejection of the second nominee, President Cleveland nominated Edward Douglas White of Louisiana and he was confirmed the same day. Mr. White later was ap pointed chief justice by President Taft. In the early days of the govern ment several supreme court nominees were rejected, including John Rut ledge of South Carolina, who was named by George Washington, and Roger B. Taney, of Maryland, who was appointed by Andrew Jackson. Taney later was nominated by Jack son as chief justice and confirmed. The judiciary committee voted 10 to 6 against Judge Parker in order ing an adverse report to the senate on his confirmation. The committee also voted 10 to 4 against inviting the nominee to appear before it and an swer the complaints against himself. Few names have been heard in the capital of a possible appointee In event of Parker's rejection but there have been frequent predictions that the president would look elsewhere than in the south. Parker is a Republican. He was appointed a member of the circuit court of appeals for the fourth dis trict in 1925 by President Coolidge and was confirmed then without op position or debate. The late Justice Sanford was a Republican. Minot Auditor Facing Petition Court Action Minot, N. D., May 7.—OP)—An al ternative writ of mandamus, requiring that City Auditor G. S.

But one nurse alone could not stand the strain, so afterwards three others were call ed in. They represented the four great races which people the British Isles; Nurse Black is Irish; Nurse Purdie, English; Nurse Gordon, Scotch; Nurse Davies, Welsh. On his last birthday, when honors are always given out by the King, mainly on the recommendation of his Prime Minister, the King personally added to the list his four nurses, making each of them a member of the Civilian Division of the Order of the British Empire. He also on an other occasion gave them the decora tion of the Royal Red Cross. Nurse Black receiving the first class dec oration “in recognition of her devot ed services during his illness.” After the King had chatted for a quarter of an hour with Nurse Black, he took the opportunity of visiting all the up-to-date operating rooms and the radium laboratory.
