Washington, July 10. Several
banks and brokers arc under investi
gation by the alien property custo
dian in an effort to trace the origin
and handling of more-than a million
dollars paid the New York Evening
Mail. All persons who participated
in the transaction will be asked to
tell what they know about it.
It is alleged that the German gov
ernment became owner of the paper
through Dr. Edward A. Rumcly,
now under arrest in New xork on
charges of perjury in connection
with the statement made to the alien
property custodian. Under the law
the money involved in the sale can
be seized by this government, if
transfer was made after the United
States went to war even though the
money is now held by Americans.
Department of justice officials
who directed the investigation which
led to Dr. Rumely's arrest, said to
day they had found no evidence of a
reported thirty million dollar Ger
man fund to buy American news
papers, and that so far as they know
the Mail was the only paper the
Germans took over.

Two soldiers were among those
killed, while another escaped with
only slight injuries. The latter, how
ever, was pinned under the wreck
age for three hours, refusing res
ellers to cut away the timbers which
held him a prisoner until others,
more seriously hurt, were taken out.
'There are other poor devils dy
ing right here beside me and need
help worse than I do," he told a res
cuer, 'Get them out first."
Every energy was being put forth
today to alleviate the sufferings of
the injured, civilian relief organiza
tions joining with the Red Cross in
of the men who left Ardmore Sun
day morning for Nashville were
anxious to know if any of the Ard
more men were in the wreck. Mr
Fronterhouse told them that the
men who went from Ardmore, had
arrived safely and had been put to
work. He had calls from Marietta,
Wilson, Healdton, and most every
town in Carter County, and the
callers seemed much relieved when
they found that the Ardmore men

resolution authorizing the president
to take over telegraph, telephone,
cable and radio services during the
war was formally reported to the
senate today by Chairman Smith of
the commerce committee, with the

A boy was canvassing the recruit
ing stations today, trying to get in
the service. When asked his age, he
inquired how old he must be to get
in the navy. When informed that IS
years was the minimum, he laughed
and said: '1 am 18.", He said he had
been in school eleven years, entering
school when he was five. This would
would make him 16, and that, ap
parent!, is about his age. He said
he ran away from his home in Wy
oming nearly three years ago, and
lived for a time at Sayre, where he
was shot and slightly injured when
getting on a freight train. He ha'
been in Wichita Falls, Texas, since
that time, and came here yesterday.
He says he has a step-father who is
in the army.

Capture Armed Hun Prisoners.
Washington, July It). The first
definite news of an armed bodv of
German and Hungarian prisoners in
Mheria was contained in a report
received today at the state depart
ment from the United States con
sul at Vladivostok, telling of the
capture by Czecho-Slovak forces of
six hundred prisoners and the town
of Nikosk, about eighty miles north
west ot Iadivostok.
The Czecho-Slovaks lost 40 killed
and 200 wounded. They were op
posed by a large force of bolshevik
Red Guards and armed German and
Hungarian prisoners. The defeated
Red Guards and prisoners took
armored trains and retreated toward
Ilaborzk on the Amu river, filling
eight trains. They took all the roll
ing stock at Nikolsk, and did some
damage to the roadbed.
The population of Xikosk was re
ported very friendly to the Czecho
slovaks, and aided in repairing the
road. The prisoners taken are being
held and examined in an effort to
learn where they got their arms.
The consul reported that the bol-
sheviki hanged several members of
the Nikolsk city officials and a num
ber of railroad employees.

During the winters of and

liif many doctors and all other rec

me, I was induce to use I'eruna. I

London, July 10. Dr. Sakue
Takahashi, professor of inter
national law at the Tokio Uni
versity, arguing in ex-premier
Okunia's new magazine Taik
waii for Japanese intervention
in Siberia, is quoted by the
Times as saying:
"Japan's defeat of Russia ex
posed Russias' weakness especi
ally to the Kaiser; hence Japan
is probably responsible for Rus
sia's collapse, and it is Japan's
duty to save her. I think Presi
dent Wilson errs in placing bol
shevik professions on . a plane
comparable with the democracy
of the United States.
"When we think of the dan
ger to Siberia which threatens
the future of Japan, a danger
from a nation far more efficient
and more to be dreaded than
ever was Russia in the old re
gime, it becomes our righth to
intervene in Siberia.'
Prof Takahashi says Siberia
should be aided by supplying
the people with necessaries and
by conserving the means of
transportation. Japan, he says,
must send an army strong
enough to gain the confidence
of the anti-bolshcviki and to
protect the men, material and
railways. He proposes to make
Siberia a buffer state to coun
teract (ierman penetration in
the far east.
