BEST MOTHER’. AS ‘SOB STUFF FAILS IN COURT Eugene Duvall, 26, Behind Bars Dozen Years, Gets 5 to 14 More. BOGUS FAINT FOLLOWS A man’s love for his mother never for sakes him. “I have the best mother In the world.” So pleaded Bn gene Duvall, 2d, of Ma rion, Ind., charged with attempting to asault a taxicab driver with Intent to rob, in asking leniency today from Judge James Collins of the criminal court. “I have spent twelve years of my life behind prison bars,” he said with emo tion. “My conduct Is killing my mother. Give me a chance to make her happy.” He paused. “I—l never have had a chance. Al ways behind prison bars. Help me," he pleaded. Judge Collins, knowing that Duvall had pulled the same ‘‘sob stuff” before other courts, sentenced him to from fire to fourteen years In the Indiana re formatory. QUICKLY RECOVERS FROM ‘‘FAINT.” Duvall rose slowly from his chair, staggered to the edge of the witness box and fell, apparently In a faint, on the tloor of the courtroom. Other officers who have seen Duvall Aaint” In other courtrooms carried him to an anteroom of the court. As soon :>3 the court instructed Dr. Robinson, county coroner, to attend him, Duvalt suddenly showed signs of life and wa* able to walk to the jail. The emotional plea of Duvall was the most dramatic event staged In the crimi nal court for the last five years, court attaches said. Duvall's mother is seriously ill at her home in Marion and through friends she asked the court not to pass sentence on her boy until she was able to appear some time next week to ask for leniency. Duvall was arrested in a taxicab driven. by Patrick Murphy, 539 North Bevllle avenue, on the evening of Feb. 13 at Illi nois and Washington streets. TAXI DRIVER TELLS OF DEATH THREAT. Murphy testified that Duvall and an other man, now said to be dead, eugaged him to drive them to Anderson, Ind., and that after starting to leave the city Duvall suddenly put a revolver against his side and instructed him to drive on. Murphy drove instead toward the busi ness district and at Washington and Illinois streets made the wrong turn 1 and purposely killed his motor. Murphy testified that Duvall told him he would kill him If he made an outcry. Officer Judkins went to the machine to see why the driver disobeyed the traffic rules, and when he pulled hack the curtains Duvall and Murphy were fighting over the possession of a re volver. Duvall admitted that he and a mar. I named Walter J. Fisher, now said to be j dead, engaged Murphy to drive them to j Anderson. Duvall freely admitted that he and Fisher intended .‘‘pulling off a $63,000 job there.” DENIES BEING ENRIGHT’S PARTNER. Duvall denied that he was a partner of Morris Enright, who Is now being ; held on a charge of murder in Chicago. [ He admitted forming Enright's acquaint- j ance while in prison in Illinois. Duvall will be taken within a few ; days to the reformatory and will be ! closely watched until the transfer* is made from the jail to the state institu tion, the authorities stated.

The annual conference here between officers of the National Wholesale Clo. thlers’ association and the National Re tall Clothiers’ association did not decide to lower the price ,of suits.

SENATE KILLS PEACE TREATY (Continued From Page One.) - going to try to get the eoimtry’s ear before Wilson can. In the democratic ranks Bryan is op posed to Wilson on the question of reservations. G. O. I\ TEST WILL COME AT CHICAGO. ! In the G. O. IV, Johnson Is running for president on an anti-treaty, anti-league platform, while Lodge, Will Hays, Taft. Root and the other leaders want the j treaty with reservations. At Chicago will come the test. A joint resolution declaring rhe re sumption of a state of peace between the United States nnd Germany was intro duced in the house today by Representa tive Tinkham of Massachusetts. While repealing the Joint reeolation adopted April 6, 1917, declaring war. It Is provided that Germany must recog nize all rights which the United States might have gained under the treaty of Versailles hail this country ratified the treaty. If Germany should fail to do this the president is empowered to re taliate by prohibiting by proclamation that resumption of trade relations or the extension of loans or credits. Should the peace of Europe be again threatened, the Tinkham resolution de clares this country would regard such an International development with “grave concern nnd deal with it as the exigencies of the situation demanded." There is no pledge of military participation which would commit the United States to a definite alliance in the event of a future European war. FINAL SESSION ORATORICAL ONE. The session of the senate which finally and unalterably (in the opinion of many senators) put the treaty Into the cam paign was devoted largely to oratory on which the political aspects of the situa tlon were not overlooked. When the votes on ratification were counted, It was found the trenty was seven short of the two-thirds needed. Twenty-one democrats bolted their party leader and voted to ratify with the nulli fying Lodge reservations. This wag four teen more than on Nov. 19, 1919, vhted for Lodge's program. The fourteen who : changed over are: Ashurst, Beckham. Chamberlain, Fletcher, Henderson, Kendrick, King, Nugent, Phelan. Pittman. Itansdell. Smith (Maryland), Trammell and Walsh (Mon tana). SENATE ADJOURNS UNTIL MONDAY. The senate quickly adopted Lodge's resolution sending the treaty back to Wilson. Six democrats voted for it. Then Robinson (Arkansas), democrat, tried to get reconsideration on the vote rejecting the treaty so that the senate might (<>■• again after ‘‘cooling off" period. Mild reservation republicans helped the demo crats on this, but when Lodge, Borah and others Insisted that the vote on ratification be taken at once If at all, the democrats decided they did not want It.

The "Newberry case" ns the trial Just ended Is generally ‘known, grew out of one of the bitterest campaigns ever waged for a seat In the United Stares senate. Truman H. Newberry and Henry Ford were the leading contestants. Newberry, a member of one of Michi gan's oldest and, before the auto Industry hit Detroit, wealthiest families; a mem ber of the navy during the Spanish American vrar; assistant secretary of the navy In Roosevelt's cabinet and an aid lo tUc commander of the port of New York during the world war, based hi* appeal for election on a war platform. Ford, millionaire automobile manufac turer. commander of the Ford peace ship attd, before the United States entered the war. leading pacifist, built his platform on support of President Wilson 4 poli cies. The Newberry supporters built up a huge organization reaching Into every county, city and Tillage In the state. By their own admission $178,000 was spent The government attorneys contended that they had showed $225,000 was paid out to ‘‘purchase u seat- in the senate" for Com mander Newberry. Testimony given at the trial stated one defendant In a con versation said he knew' SBOO,OOO was spent NEWBERRY AC CUSED , OF LEADING FIOT. Paul H. King bonded the Newberry campaign committee in Michigan. The government claimed that Senator New berry and Frederick Cody hatched the alleged plot to corrupt the 191 H elections In Michigan, while they resided In New York. They sent for King to come to Now York nnd made him manager of the campaign, the testimony showed. Newberry worked directly through King In carrying out the details of the campaign, the government contended. Correspondence which passed between King and Newberry, as presented In the trial by the defense, showed King wrote as many as eight letters a day to his chief. The case hinged on the question of whether or not Senator Newberry "caused to be expended” an amount in excess of the sum allowed by the Michi gan statutes in procuring his clwtlon. This amount Is $3,750. The defense contended that Newberry had nothing to do with the spending of the lapge sum of money; declaring that he did not contribute one cent to the campaign fund and *vns not informed of the huge amounts spent in his behalf dur ing the campaign. • A grand Jury summoned in the au tumn of Ift I*J returned indictments accus ing 135 men of conspiracy to violate the federal statutes by spending an exces sive amount of money in the campaign. A conspiracy to defraud the whole state of Michigan by using the mails In the alleged fraudulent election scheme was also charged. These were the two main accusations which went before the Jury. Four other Indictments were eicher quashed or com bined with these two principal charges. The trial covered u period of eight weeks. More than 400 witnesses testified for the government and approximately 250 for (he defense. King was the only leading defendant to take the witness stand. He never completed his testimony.
