Berlin,iMay 17.—Only a few Berlin
newspapers comment editorially* on
the vote in the United. States senate
on the, JKnox'^ resolution ending the
st$te jf'^ wan' between the' United-.
States and Germany.
The Tag eblatt believes the United
Spates has "ifound a convenient solu*
tion to the situation growing out of
the rejection of the Versailles treaty,"
but suggests, it will be necessary to
onter info friendly negotiations with
the Uqited States for.»the adjustment
of many mooted issues before normal
commercial relations can be resumed.
It says that, among these is the. ques
tion .^of the:','treatment of German
ipropet-ty cpnfiscated in the, United
states.v.-fV'
Suggestion' is. made by the Lokal.
Anzelger'that news of the vote in the
seriate should be "received with an

Count
Charges Congress With Be­
ing Inactive In Improv-
ing Situation
Washington, .May 18,.—Profiteering
was denounced today in the senate by
Senator Walsh, Democrat of Massa
chusetts, who asserted that extortions
of profiteers are the principal cause
of widespread unrest and- that con
gress has been "culpably- inactive" in
moving to relieve the situation.
Senator Walsh cited many large
dividends, 'including stock dividends,
paid recently by big corporations and
declared the public outcries against
tjhe/high cost of' living were an acute
political problem.
Republican leadership and majori
ties in congress', the Massachusetts
senator said, arq, responsible for fail
ure" to enact antl-profiteering legisla
tion. The Republicans, he added,
cannot ahift the responsibility to the

Account of Killing of Mnrnjl
Wolf And Hofer -Ii-"
,False^flf. ^.v.
Evidently
May ^1^.—Whe *,i
the murder afe'
Washburn, N. E».,
Henry Layer confessed
Jacob W'ojf, his wife and five daud^j"
1 tera, and the murder of Jake HOfisr,
{pleading that he wentrlnsane aft^r.'
slaying Mrs. Wolf and Hofer acci-i* „•.
dentally while\ contesting with Wolfj
for pot?neesion of the shotgun that wasfl .'
used -in the horrible, .crime, official#?n
and others who are thoroughly famil-^
iar with the crime, believe that the
lifer lied so far as the inception of-•thsKte.
crime is concerned.
Layer eaid in his confession that4,
Mrs. Wolf -and Hofer were,'shot'and?f
killed while he and Wolf fought In a{
woodshed leading to thp kitchen tor
possession of the gun. --v '1
Both Shot at CMose Range.
.Mrs. WOlf was shot In' the back at'
close range, while Hofer was shot in,./
the back of the-neck at very close
range, and from the nature of the
wounds that both had it is not believ,
ed that Layer is telling the truth when
he says they were accidentally killed. ~-i
Officials say thai it isn't likely that
the two victims would have had their S
backs turned to the struggling men.
Until Layer teHs the whole story of
what actually transpired on the Wolf
farm on the day that the eight people
went to their death, the story of the
actual occurrence must remain mora
or less veiled, though l^yerts story, of
how he slew the two giMs-'ltr the barn,
and of how he killed three girls it)
the house, probably is substantially
correct.
Townley Detective Got Wrong Han
A unique angle of the case has come
to light recently, when it was learn
ed that private detectives, led by Har- -i"
ry Dunbar, a Nonpartisan league or
ganizer. had a young man of the
neighborhood arrested and placed in- I
jail at Washburn for several 'days.
The private detectives brought to
Turtle Lake by the league state ad
ministration in an attempt to discredr
it the county And state authorities
then at work on the case, did not
know of the lAyer arre«t. conviction
and sentence until Layer'was in the'
state penitentiary at Bismarck.
