IVittorio Rolandi Ricci, Am
bassador to Washington,
Rome, Nov. 1.—(By the Asso
ciated Press.) —Vittoflo Rolandl
•JBccl, Italian ambassador at
Washington, has presented bis
resignation like biff colleagues,
Count Sforza, ambassador at
Paris, and' Senor Frassati, am
bassador at Berlin, wishing to
leave Premier Mussolini free to
choose bis own trusted men for
such Important posts.
It developed today that Pre
mier Mussolini' had sent a rdply
to the letter of resignation from
Count Sforza, which was received
yesterday, reproaching him for
his action and asking blm'to re
main at his post.
To xieopen Bourse.
Rome, Nov. 1.-—(By the Associated
^ress.)—Minister of Industry Rossi
in agreement with the minister of
the treasury has taken steps for the
immediate reopening of the Bourse,
it was semi-offlcially announced to
Rome', Nov. 1.—Italy will be on the
iroad back to normalcy today after a
.most exhilarating week that saw the
younger generation rise to power and
In a great triumph overthrow the old
er. politicians.
Tens of thousands of the vigorous
Fasclsti and their enthusiastic admir
ers who accompanied them here from
ftll over the land were on .the way
to their homes today.
Testerday theirs was the thrill of a
,real Roman triumph in which a mll
lion people made the streets ring with
applause for king'and'country and JDr.
'1 Benito Mussolini and his new Fasclsti
ministry had taken their oaths before
the sovereign. As soon as this formal
ceremony had' ended, .the blackshlrted
boys and men ~jyho brought about the
rise of Mussolini, marched as victors
through the ancient streets of the city,
crowded with concourse that

of Rome.' ,-• {.-•

Politically the chief topic In Italy
.today is what the fortune of the new
S cabinet will be when it goes before
the chamber of deputies. One thing
is certain. If Mussolini's government
does not receive a majority in the
chamber, he will have parliament dis
solved and' then the Fasclsti will take

Townsend Says U. S. Is
Rea^y to Start Water

Declares Development of
Power Alone Would Pay
for Investment..
Chicago, Nov. 1.—As'soon as Can
ada consents to the United States
project for the St. Lawrence River
Great'' Lakes ocean waterway, work
will be undertaken, Senator Charles
E. Townsend of Michigan declared to
day in an address before the Chicago
association ofcommerce.'
'"With a twenty-foot channel be
tween Chicago and Montreal, 80 per
cent of all oceajn vessels now sailing
from United States ports could come

only 34 miles of physical obstacles in

the senator..
{'Within a, distance of 34 miles
above Montreal lie all the physical
obstacles of importance in the way of
this development. The Wetland ca

Senator Townsend said.
"The objection that this waterway
will not be all Stmerican but will be

countries is. without merit," he de
clared. It is an international stream
and tjie latent power within it belongs,
to the two countries.

London, Nov. 1.—(By the Associ

Conservative party led by Prime Min
ister Bonar Law and the National Lib
erals under the banner of David
Lloyd George were still undecided to
day as to whether they would really
"spread the war" against one. anoth
er's candidates in the coming elec
tion or stand on the present situation
of fighting bitterly in some districts
and co-operating in others.
"To flghjt or not to fight," was the
subject Jpf discussions at Conservative
headquarters last night, but no orders
were issued to the political leaders In
the hinterlands, and it was said that
matter would be'threshed out again
Meanwhile the political gossips who
vent their ideas upon readers of morn
ing papers are noising it about that
Lloyd George is not so keen for re
prisals against the tories as he used
to he. For one thing these writers
point out, the former jprime minister's
party is not the only one capable of
throwing reserve candidates Into the
scrap should the tacit agreements to
co-operate go to smash. Besides
Lloyd George hasn't built up such a
large number of local organizations as
hav^ his opponents. Some of the pa
pers think his threat "to spread the
war," is only a bluff anyhow.
But'his journalistic champion, the
.Oally.^ilhrjjriicle contends-that Meg®*'
George really has the men and the
means to use them and that he is
simply holding back in the hope of
"returning sanity elsewhere."

London, Oct.'l.—Premier Bonar Law
last night issued the list of the re

which /there is again a fair infusion of
members of the house of lords. His
appointment of minister of pensions
does not necessarily mean that he has
yielded to Laborite clamor against the
proposed abolition of that ministry,
but is considered more likely a formal
appointment to carry on the work
until the ministry can be abolished by
legislative act. Agitation against
abolition of the pensions ministry,
however, is gathering force.
