There followed charges and counter charges in which Ryan ac cused members of tho board of gov ernors of being short in the stock and in which other members of the Ex change accused him of having aj. ille gal corner, which would prevent him from enforcing the usual obligation of a broker to deliver stock he has sold.

April 24. Secre- tary of Labor Wilson after an all-day argument, took under advisement to night the question whether member ship In the communist labor party in ' Itself constituted grounds fordeport- :atloh of aliens.

Abo, Finland, for affiliation with the Bolshevlkl. was ! the founder of the communist labor I party. Hoover declared it was like (all other communist organizations, "a gang of cut throat aliens who have I come to this country to overthrow the government by force." Fifty per cent of tho influence bo hind tho recent strikes, Hoover said, was directly traceable to the com 1 munlst organizations. j Difference In Parlies In endeavoring to distinguish bc j tweun tho communist party and the communist labor party, Hale declared J the application blank of the commun ist labor party mado the applicant bound to bo -guided by" the princi ples of the party. An applicant for membership in the communist party on the other hand, he said, pledged support as "an active worker." Tho platform of the communist party. Hale asserted. was , nothing ! more than the socialism of Karl 1 Marx and argument for "action of i masses" was tho subject to a political interpretation. Attorney General Palmer tonight de nied tho statement by Hale at today's ! hearing that Louis C. .Fraina, de scribed as socretary of the commun ist party of America, was an agent of ! tho department of justice. Fraina, he said, had never rendered any service to the department. Palmer Witness. Discussing the department's activit ies in connection with the raids and deportation proceedings, the attorney general said; "Certain statements have recently appeared in the public press to the ef fect that the department of justice has had its agents actively identified in tho formation of the communist party and the communist labor party, and was to a large extent responsible for the agitation and unrest caused by thoso two organizations through their propaganda. There is no foundation whatever for this charge. Of course, the department of justice has used confidential information ever since Its bureau of investigation was estab lished, but the informants are under strict instructions not to engage act ively in any organization under their investigation. There is no instance In the administration of the department of ' justice where any confidential in formant has ever actively engaged in( the councils of the communist party or the communist labor party. One of tho specific instances charged to tho confidential Informants of the de partment of justice is to the effect that they were instrumental in the holding ot meetings of the communist party I on January 2, 1920. That was tho reg ular meeting night of tho communist party throughout the country, which held its meetings on tho first Friday of each month." oo PASS ELECTORAL BILL. BERIN, April 23.

April 21. "The United States has become a robber's roost," Senator Capper, Republican, Kansas, declared in an address today in tho senate in which he scored prof iteering and declared that If the law enforcement officers of tho govern ment could not enforce the laws they should resign "and let men who can take their places." Declaring that the proof of profit eering was in the margin of profit, the senator said that in one year alone during the war. gross Income of American corporations rose from C 3-5 blllloiiH to S 1-2 billions.

I Gamblers In Sugar j "At this moment the most brazen 'challenge we have had in litis saturn alia of greed conies from the gam bid's in sugar.

Senator Lenroot, Republican, Wis consin, declared that If "a single mil lionaire were sent to Leavonworth un der the laws on the books some of this profiteering would bo stopped."

He said that per sons from the east were in the mar 1 ket for local sugar with apparently jH inexhaustible capital behind them. ! The sugar, which is distributed to re- tailers as a portion of Utah's allot- mcnt is purchased by men of this I typo, lie averred, and they ship the sugar to eastern markets whe.ro . it bl-ings from five to eleven cents more j per pound than it does locally. ! Serious Condition. i ll E. Sebbclov, superintendent of tho I I Ogden district of tho Amalgamated I Sugar companj , . when asked., regard- H ing conditions, stated that it waa jfl known' by sugar company . .officials H that speculation had existed since ill last SeptenibeV. He,, said that while JH tho speculation ' in sugar was being i icarrl6jdtout'-at; ihe -expense''- o'f-Tottn' i H consumers, he could cito no specific H cases Tn which' It' hud occurred. " ' H A Greek restaurant .man Is alleged j H to havo purchased $10,000 worth of I JH sugar recently, which wa3 shipped, to 1H eastern markets. The town of Bing- H ham, with a small population, had its ;H sugar supply depleted by two carloads by sugar speculators last week, it is declared. -H l It is reported that a number of local 'H r merchants have been offering sugar ul for sale without inquiring whither it rJI was bound. Thousands of dollars in nH profits have been reaped through this fill j practice. It was slated. Mr. Sebbelov III said that it was to curtail this pra- III lice that a strict sugar allotment was ill placed in effect.

(jttl Sugar Is Going. f Sfl i It is alleged that because of the Ml prevalence of this practice that Utah 191 ditizens are being .ITe'reft of a portion WW J of their sugar allotment and that be fjS ; cause sugar is being removed in (man- .1 titles that tho prices are soaring m pB local markets and causing severe, II! shortage. " J Sugar company oficials have re $ ported that the present scarcity of sugar is resulting only because the j April allotment has been cxnaiisteu. More sugar will bo placed on tho mar- ' ' I ket during the coming1 month, it was stated. The local grocer who charged spec- ulators with taking a portion of the Utah sugar allotment, stated that he had received orders for sugar from places as far east as Connecticut. , Tliero is a seriuus shortage of sugar : in the east, he stated, and sugar can ' bo sold at a mighty attractive profit. It is the fact that tho margin of prof its is so attractive that causes eastern ' I men to attempt to purchase sugar even in small iiuantities, it was stated, i Atlracts Speculators. ' i "Utah, as a sugar producing center, is attracting sugar speculators both of the, tin-horn and the big-linm type," he said. "If local dealers con- v tlnuo to sell indiscriminately to an"yl I one who flashes a large enough roll? 1 of money, Utahns face prospects ot m going sugarless," he stated. M Tho unanimous opinion of those who know most about tho sugar in- , dustry is that tho Cuban crop Is the i m dominating factor in the situation of ' this country. This year tho crop of 79 Cuba was estimated to yield 3,700,000 , Iff tons and of this output 3,000,000 , Hgl are already sold outside the United i H States, which leaves this country face I Kg, to face with an alarming shortage. HI Germany, which supplied this couu- IB try with vast quantities of boot sugar I Hj beforo the war, has been so terribly crippled that littlo relief can bo ox pectcd from that quarter.
