Admiral Who Criticised Navy
Policy First to Testify
at Hearing.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 17.—A man who
lost In ’‘battle should not receive a spe
cial award dne those who were victori
ous,” "declared Admiral William S. Sims
yesterday before the senate subcommittee
Investigating the award of naval medals
of honor.
Admiral Sims was referring to the
award of a medal of honor to Com
mander David Worth Bagley, brother
in-law of Secretary Daniels, who com
mended the destroyer Jacob Jones, which
was sunk.
At the outset of the hearing Senatov
l’ittman, democrat, of Nevada, protested
against Admiral Sim being permitted
to testify before Secretary Daniels was
allowed to present his side of the con
troversy. Secretary Hale declared that
inasmuch ns Admiral Sims was the com
plainant that he should testify first. A
vote was taken and Senator Hale was
sustained by the subcommittee.
Admiral Sims declared he had taken
the facts upon which he based his protest
against the naval awards from the an
nual report of of the navy.
He said he considered those recommenda
tions final. He stated he had written a
letter of protest to the secretary, but “the
secretary did not answer my letter; he
replied to It by saying the recommenda
tions were not final.”
The American people know less about
their navy than any other great mari
time power,” Admiral Kims said. “Other
naTies V errn 'f their officers to make an
nouncements concerning the nav# public
while not on active duty. This is neces
sary for the good of the service.”
Admiral Sims said only nineteen of 202
officers of his staff received naval med
als. “I say this to amswer some criti
cism I heard that all members of my
staff received the award,” he added.
“Whatsoever praise, acclaim and popu
larity I might have obtained from the
war is due to the work of my staff. All
I claim credit for is selecting the men
of my staff,” Sims said.
"I think the entire system of awards
Is wrong,” Sims said. “I believe that
npost of the trouble could have been
avoided had the commanding oflieers been
further consulted.
“I requested the nary department for
the policy to he followed by the de
partment. It was impossible for com
manding officers to get together and we
had no policy defined to guide us.
"I did everything I could when I saw
this trouble coming to ward it off. Prece
dents of. the service were violated by
changing the awards. I recommended
three men for D. S. M. They were re
fused. That was three out of 40,000 *neu.
The ODly man under me who received the j
D. 8. M. was a man named. Isaacs. All
he did was to he captured by the
Senator Hale asked if Sims was un
able to get any definite policy from the
department on awards.
“I wrote to Admiral Knight relative
to the policy and he told me the awards
board had no policy.”
Admiral Sims, In a letter to Secretary
Daniels some weeks ago, charged the sec
retary with having altered the list of
naval awards of honor medals as sub
mitted to him by the board and redis
tributed the decorations in a way preju
dicial to the morale of the navy and
tending to bring the service into ridi
Notably Secretary Daniels was criti
cised for having gLven high honors to
captains of vessels whose ships were
sunk by the enemy than recommended,
among such officers being the secretary's
brother-in-law, Commander Bagley.
A second letter from Admlrai Sims, at
Newport, H. 1., to the secretary of the
navy, dealing, It is understood, with les
sons taught by the war, will likewise be
one of the exhibits at the hearing. Os
this communication. Secretary Daniels
“Again the pipe line from Newport
seems to have given out information con
cernlng the letter before, or as soon as
It reached my desk. 1 have not yet had
a chance to read It all, but as far as I
have gone It Is critical In spirit.”

“Secret Note” Given Judge by
Jury, Ground, Says Counsel.
LOS ANGELES, Jan. 17.—A note
handed to the judge by the jury, which
found Harry S. New, Jr., guilty of sec
ond degree murder for the killing of
Freda will be tha basis of the

The note, marked “to the court and
not for the preßs,’’ said the jury re
quested the judge to have New first
confined to “some institution” for obser
vation as to his sanity. This, the de

reasonable doubt as to New's sanity and
that the second degree murder verdict
was returned on a basis of expediency.
If the motion for anew trial is denied
an appeal will be taken, Leeompte
Davis, chief counsel for the defense, an
nounced. An attempt will be made to
secure the release of New on hail, pend

Balance Sheet Shows Assets
*f Two and Half Billion.
IjONDON, England, Jan. 17.—1n a pa
per on “The Nation's Balance Sheet.”
hy D. Drummond Fraser, president of
the Manchester District Bankers’ Insti
tute, read before a meeting of the in
stitute of bankers at the School of Ori
ental Studies, Finsbury Circus, recently,
the home money borrowed during the
war was comprehensively dealt with.
“The external debt and pre-war debt
amounts to £2,000,000,000,” said Mr.
Drummond Fraser, “making with the
10.000,000,000 of home debt a total esti
mated debt of £8,90,000,000 In March.
1920. On the other band It Is estimated
that there will be the following war
Obligation of allies, £1,740,000.000; of
dominions, £200,000,000; of India, £21,-
000,000; total, £1.961,000,000; surplus
stores, etc., £425,000,000; arrears excess
profits duty, £240,000.000; gross total,
"The practical result of the creation
of credit and currency against govern
ment securities against government.” he
continued, "Is seen in the swollen figures
of bank deposits and the swollen figures
of currency notes. An analysis of the
Increased deposits of the banks, exclusive
of the Bank of England, shows that over
two-thirds of the Increase has been cre
sted against government securities, ana
that nearly one-third Is represented by
increased cash resources. This increase
of one-third Is due to government dis
bursements of the proceeds of the -s-.ale
of government securities t<* the people,
and not to the creation of credit against
government securities.”
Figures were quoted, illustrating how
the surplus money of the people was
concentrated In bank deposits, which It
was urged should be tapped to finance
the government.
"I should like to see a bond on tap,”
Mr. Drummond Fraser proceeded, “free
from any restriction and capital depreci
ation. Business firms would then place
surplus money in government securities.
All that is necessary Is for Somerset
House to treat such an investment as
capital employed In the business. Small
investors would accumulate genuine sav
ings In government securities.
“It seems to me that the sound finan
cial way to reduce the treasury bills,
ways and means advances, and currency
notes, is to attack the biggest Item,
namely, the increase of bank deposits.
Just ns bad money, used as currency,
drives out good money, so does the neg
lect of an effective adjustment of Interest
rates drive money into a bad govern
ment security, namely, treasury bills, In
stead of a good government security,
namely short term bonds.
“The attraction of the people’s surplus
money Into a government security on tap
would have a reflex action. It would not
only gradually reduce the swollen de
posits, but automatically reduce the Bank
of England’s figures and, the currency

Police Say John C. Lucas Was
Last Seen With Ferry
man at Linton.
Arrest of John C. Lucas, alias Lewis,
In Larue, 0., on a grand larceny charge
may clear up the murder of James
Harper, 65, a ferry operator on White
river, ten miles south of Linton, Ind.,
according to Indianapolis police.
Detectives Hanks and Winkler, who
have been looking for Lucas, have in
formation, they say, that he was the
last man, seen with the ferryman.
Harper was slain on the night of Nov.
10 in his shack and his body thrown
into the river. His boat was found adrift
two days later, but his body was not
found untlj two weeks later when the
high water at the time had receded.
The appearance of his shack indicated
that a struggle had taken place. Har
per was found to be missing on Nov. 12,
when relatives went to his place. About
S6OO in money, Harper’s life savings,
were dug up under an-old shed near his
Linton authorities worked on the the
ory that Harper was slain and thrown
Into the river for some time, but Inter
abandoned this theory in the belief that
he had fallen out of his boat and was
drowned. Relatives revived the mrrder
theory, however, the local police* say,
when Information was given them that
Lucas was supposed to have been seen
with Harper a short time before he dis
Lucas formerly lived in Indianapolis
the specific charge against him is thc
theft of $5,250 worth of Liberty bonds,
the property of the children of Mrs
Goldie 8. Derrickson, whom he married
| In Ind'annpolls Nov. 16, 1019, the police
j claim, under the name of John C. Lewis.
Mrs. Derrickson was a widow with two
! children. Her former husband left a
small estate for the children and she
was appointed administratrix of the
estate and later guardian of the chil
dren by the probate court of this city.
Fart of the e-tate consisted of cash,
and $3,250 of tills was invested hy Mrs.
Derrickson in Liberty bonds. Soon after
the marriage the couple went to Toledo.
On Nov. 28, 1919, Lucas disappeared. Ac
cording to Information sent to Indian
apolis hy, Henry J. Herbert, chief of
police at Toledo, a coat and hat belong
ing to I,Ocas was found along the docks
of the Mntimee river in Toledo. The
river was dragged, but the body was
not found and the Toledo police de
dared that they were satisfied that
Lucas did not commit suicide.
When Lucas disappeared, aecordlng to
the Toledo police, he had in his posses
sion Liberty bonds to the value of $3,450.
His wife said they owned S2OO worth
of the bonds and tho other $3,250 worth
of bonds belonged to the two children.
Lucas Is said to be the man's real name
but he was known as Lewis while In
Indianapolis. Mrs. Derrickson is now
staying at 1009 North Alabama street.
Detectives Winkler and Hanks of thc
local police department said that the rec
ords of the 'railroad shops show that
Lucas was absent from the railroad shops
Not. 9, 10 and 11 of last year. They
say they have Information that bo was
at Harper's Ferry on Nov. 10 the last
day that Harper was seen alive.
“It was not on overnight affair.” re
marked Mrs. Derrlcjtson today in telling
of her courtship hy Lucas who was
known to her us Lewis. "He represented
himself to me ns a dear sweet old bach
elor. I never knew be was married nnd
had a wife and four children living at
2851 Gale street, In Indianapolis until
after he disappeared.”
Expect Amendment
in Force by Election
“We confidently expect that enough
states will ratify the national suffrage
amendment before the next election to
give women the vote,” said Helen Ben
bridge, president of the Woman’s Fran
chise league, nfter the senate and house
had passed the joint resolution.
“Our slogan Is 'Make every woman in
Indiana an intelligent voter.’ To this
end we will continue our citizenship
schools In every part of the state.
“The action today was no surprise to
us. Os course we are greatly gratified
to know that Indiana is one of the states
to approve suffrage.”

Same Ailments That Affect
Humans Attack Dogs
and Cats.
OGS have their
"***" 'doctors. nurses
and medicine just
/ 'n like humans.
V*>| N The Fidos of
I Indianapolis have
| J their attacks of
,\ I J rheumatism, achy
teeth, indigestion,
Sand the like.
So to keep the
pet dog colony of
Indianapolis hap
py and well, as
well as the cat
family, there Is at
least one Indian
apolis doctor who
makes a specialty
of attending to
•the aches and
pains of these ani
bershardt, 1900
treated dogs, cat:
and other animals
as well.
He has a little hospital at his home,
where dogs with broken legs are mace
as good as new and where pet cats are
restored to health.
“Dogs are just like children," said the
doctor after amputating a. leg and pa.t
of the tall of a dog which had become
too well acquainted with the wheels of
a moving train.
The doctor Is now- treating this Utttle
stray dog which was run over by a
train In the Panhandle railroad yards,
aud an operation gs this nature requires
mtiFh skill.
Dr. Albershardt w-as called to the Pan
, handle shops by some of the railroad
j men who “passed the hat” to make up
' sufficient funds to call the doctor. So
j this big hearted doctor of dogs and oth-w
! animals “knocked off" part of the
charges, and this unfortunate Fldo is
now recovering from the loss of a leg
and part of his tail.
Dogs, like humans, have what can be
termed skin diseases, stomach and other
| troubles and bad teeth, which causes
Improper mastication of food.
Many people who can not affftrd to
make unnecessary expenditures often call
a doctor to care for their pet dog. The
| doctor claims nowadays a person calls
in a vetertnariau for a sick or injured
dog about as free
ly as they do for
“This Is not 'ft S.
motive of jLjaSftJ I
children, but rather
to see a dumb anl V
mal suffer,“ said /
Dr. Albershardt. |r’ r /a\l /
The doctor is a
strong advocate of /
the necessity of
keeping dogs off na&jfLjtt'A'
of the streets. He n
claims that a dog
is easier to treat J
than a cat because yj /'
n cat has the ne- < ■,_ _ l^ilK'/
cessary Implements 1 a
of war to impress j j a'J/
a doctor with her J
unw'UHng'netis to <7 H AvHwvmßf

that It is not only
