SEVEN OF2o" RE SAFE 0 Get Through Barriers of the European Countries; 3 Have Been Shot. DEPENDS ON BUSINESS HERE "Ambassador" Admits Help of Concern Relied on to Gain Recognition. WASHINGTON, Jim. 30. How the, couriers of soviet IlUHHla carry ing funds to finance Its propaganda in America run the gauntlet of death and Imprisonment In tho surround ing states of Kuropc, was u story be gun but alandoned half told today by Ludwlg C. A. K. MartctiH. soviet agent In tho United State before tho senato foreign relations mib-commlt-teo investigating Russian propagan da. Martens flatly declined to an sa er further questions put to him by tho committee on the subject of the couriers, and loft It to consider whether or not hlsplen of "diplo matic Immunity" from further exam ination should be allowed, whllo he went on to recount hLs ponwnnl nc rJMtlert In endeavoring to get his government recognized by tho state department, and In placing provis ional contracts for $25,000,000 worth of food, clothing and machinery with American business houses. This lat ter effort, ho nald, had resulted In pticlng two or three letters before President Wilson urgjng recognition, though the stato department has ro inalnrd lirm in if refusal to recog nize him In any way. Out of 20 of tho mysterious mes aengcrs who started during tho last j ear from Moscow with fundn and lettere to him. Martens nald, seven had (rotten through tho barriers of armies and International frontiers. Everal had been shot summarily In Finland "threcv that I know about," Martens said ca.iua.lly. Of 10 who tried to get through Germany, nlno were caught and Jailed. Tho first man to roach him hqwqver, curried J3O.O0O and his credentials as soviet ambassador to tho t'nlted States. The couriers carried money In tho fonn of Finnish marks, or Scandinavian currency, Martens said, and had valoua varieties of passports. Here he began to evade, though Sonator Moa.es of Now Hampshire, chairman of tho committee, and Senator llrftn deseo, Connecticut, who were prod dins him on with questions na to tho meeafneer's routes, and methods of trniel and disguise. "I declino to answer," lio stated finally when asked to nnmo one ot the couriers and repeated his words quietly when the topic was pushed further lie, too, had sent couriers, he admitted, but of their fortunes ho hud not been advised. Altogether 150,000 had come to him through the underground routo and also an Instruction, so he said, not to spend any money "on politics or tho sup port of Internal factions or parlies In the United States."

Pec-'o, ? a ,,,oneer coal i.. .,..c.0r and minor of tho McAti. li.i:'.a- in a local hosnital here fhSoma & Gulf railroad, nnl A Crisis in Oklahoma Rep ublicanism The moHt amazinir thing, tho moat unbelievable thing, about tho withdrawal of James .!. AlcGraw from the na tional committeeman race, is the apparent fact that a man has at last arisen in Oklahoma politics who puts party loy alty and patriotism above personal lust for office. Mc Gniw has always ranked high in the appraisement of friends and acquaintances; but in sacrificing himself in the interest of that political association for which he entertains such great affection, he has easily become the most out standing figure in Oklahoma politics. This can be said without fear of giving offense to those who while recognizing the sterling worth of the man, the neighbor, the husband and father, still felt constrained to damn him because ho worshipped God in a manner ob jectionablo, to them; the while ardently advocating the candidacy of a man who worships no other God than Mam mon. We say the mode of praise we thus accord Jim McGraw will excite no vicious opposition from oven these worthy bigots. For the great "danger" is past; McGraw calms their fears in these words: "I shall not hesitate to serve the party and the cause it stands for in any capacity acceptable to mv follow republicans and fellow -countrymen. But I shall not embarrass cither by again preferring a re quest for honors at their hands. In this spirit lot us agree what is best to bo done in Oklahoma, and hav ing agreed, let a united parly set about embracing the opportunity for party success that undoubtedly pre sents itself.'" Bigger than any ono of his detractors; bigger by far than all of those who fought him on church grounds' put together, practicing tho truly Christian spirit McGraw took himself out of the race "without prejudice to any," placed himself at the disposal of his associates for service in the ranks, and did not make it a condition of his loyalty that his party should be anti-anything. Unwilling to involve his own church? or the church or organization of another; realizing the miserable unfairness and impossibility of the whole fight, he sensed that it could only be ended by some man rising above the plane of mere politics and acting the man. He did that. We say again, no man in republican politics in this state has ever rendered the party such signal service as did Jim McGraw in his statement of withdrawal. When ho was a candidate for office he had supporters. Today, standing behind the bars of political renunciation which he himself set in place, he has thousands of friends. We ask that ample note be made of the distinction. But if McGraw, the victim, found that his duty as a citizen and republican required him to sacrifice his own ambition ; that even though he might have continued the fight and secured his own re-election, these considerations must be heeded, because he would then be incapable of healing the wounds of the party, harmonizing the factions and commanding that co-operation absolutely essential to party success, what is to be said of those who made ihs issue and directed tho fight? That is the question that confronts every loyal repub lican in Oklahoma this morning. If it is to be met worth ily, then it must be met in the same splendid spirit exem plified by McGraw. The republican party has never been, nor is it now, as a matter of fact, either a Catholic or an anti-Catholic party. It is an American party. Wo believe THE American party. If, the withdrawal of James McGraw was necessary to prove that it is not in fact a Catholic party, then ftic elimi nation of Jake Ilamon is necessary to prove that it is not nn anti-Catholic party. And furthermore, Ilamon's elimi nation is necessary to prove that it is not a j.arty of boodle and immorality. It is necessary, too, to that co-operative, enthusiastic action which "McGraw foresaw could not bo his in case of success, and equally can never be Hamon's. That is the situation that stares the republicans of Oklahoma in the face. No amount of sophistry can altr it; no argument or evasion change it in the slightest. The World docs not propose to indulge in personalities or become a sewer. It does purpose talking for a mome: t in an understandable tongue. It may be that Jake Ilamon will he elected as the supremo representative of Oklahoma republicans in na tional affairs; that ho will be the major-general of the party in the state for the next four years. We will go further and assert that such is bound to be the result unless the patriotism of the party, the loyalty of the party, tho DECENCY of the party, the pride of the party, springs into action and forbids it. But if Hamon's election should come to pass, let it be known beforehand that no man or woman who espoused the cause of James J. McGraw will bear a single ounce of responsibility for it. They have had their hour in Geth scmane with personal pride, and they emerged cleansed. For there they made the sacrifice necessary to prevent such a thing, if those who know the full portent of it will but do their duty. And if Hambn is selected as the party leader; if Ha monism dops triumph and stamp itself upon the republi can party of Oklahoma, then farewell, a long farewell to an opposition party in Oklahoma capable of commanding respect, confidence or co-operation either at homo or abroad. ' For there are tens of thousands of men and women in this stato who do believe in the honor of men and the virtue of women; who do believe that the reasonable puri fication of politics is not an iridescent dream; who do be lieve that the republican party in Oklahoma is under obli gation to maintain itself in such a way that it will bo ready to respond to the popular mandate when the people have at last tired of major-party domination and turn for relief to the only source from which relief can come under the form of government we practice. ( And these republicans will neither accept the Ilamon representation nor follow tho Ilamon leadership. The question then is this: Shall wo servo republican ism as taught by Roosevelt and Lincoln; by Wood and Johnson and Borah and those others too mrmerous to men tion ; or shall wo follow republicanism astiracticcd by Jako Hamon? If tho first,, then we can pridefully point to tho party in Oklahoma and tho nation. If the second, then it will still be possible to take pride in the national party only by forgetting the state party. , TAKE PACT FIGHT BACK TO SENATE Bipartisan Parley Failure and Leaders End the Negotiations. SPLIT ON ARTICLE 10 Lodge Rejects Compromise Proposal by Taft Which Democrats Champion. ASK ACTION FEBRlARY 10 Hitchcock Serves Notice He Will Move Treaty Be Taken Up at That Time. WASHINGTON. Jan. 30. Kfforts to break tho ponce treaty deadlock by unofficial bi-partisan, negotiation ended suddenly In fulluro today and democratic senatci leaders began preparations to bring the treaty hack Into the open sonatu for con sideration. It was over thn long debated article 10 that tho bi-partisan move ment ntler bringing republicans and democrats together on nmny col lateral Ismies, finally mot dlnistnr. The end came after Shnator Lodge of Massachusetts, tho republican leader, had renewed hit refusal to compromlso on that artlelo and had rejected a reservation on tho sub ject written by former President Tnft and presented to thn bl-partlsin conciliation committee by the dem ocrats. Walking out ot the conference with tho announcement that further dollbrratlons there were uselesi. tho democrats quickly drafted plans to renow the fight In the open. The acting party leader, Senator Hitch cock of Nebraska, announced tnat tlco would bo given in tho senate tomorrow of his Intention to move on Kobruary 10 to tako up tho treaty for ratification, Opinion was divided as to v bother such a motion uould prevail. If It does, Senator Hitchcock ex pects to propose, he eald, that the senate adopt those reservations on which tentative agreement hud been reached In the committee nnd then fight out differences oer tho oth ers. A draft of the committee's work made public by Mr. Hitchcock did not correspond with ft roviow of Its accomplishments given out by Sen ator IXMlge, however, and a bitter aftermath seemed In storo should thn democratic plan of opon dlsous skn bo carried out. Tentative agreement, Fenatbr Hitchcock said, had been reached by the commltteo on tho preamblo and 12 of tho 14 proposed reservations, tho only subjects remaining at ssuo t.elng article 10 and tho Monroe doc trine. Senntor 1idge maintained that there were Mx In all of tho 14 on which no agreement, even of a ten tative n:ituro, had been consum mated.
