As soon as legislation has been obtained from congress to increase the interest rate from 2 to 3 per cent he will begin on a nation-wide campaign to promote thrift and increase in pos tal savings deposits. He declared that only two savings banks in the country, except two in Indiana, have offered criticism to the proposal. Plana Furthered at Dinner His plan for important changes af fecting postal savings was given big impetus at last night's dinner, Ht which Mr. Hays was host and cabinet members, senators, representatives, bankers and others were guests. It took a forty-year campaign to give the nation the postal savings law. The legislation was long fought by savings banks, which feared that pos tal savings would be destructive to their business. But experience ha3 shown that their fears were unfound ed. Among those present at the Hays dinner was John J. Pullyn, president of the Immigrant Industrial - Savings bank of New York, the largest savings bank in the country.

Privateersman he was, but of good repute. His hanging as a pirate and murderer on Execution Dock at1 London in 1701 was to satisfy the political exigencies of the time. These are tne findings of John H. Edmonds, state archivist for Massa chusetts, as announced in a lecture at the Old South Meeting house. Archi vist Edmonds was discussing "Lord Bellomont and the Pirates." Bellomont, he said, was appointed governor of New England in 1695 with a special mission to suppress piracy. Included High Officials. "Before leaving England," Mr. Ed monds contended, '"he agreed with Captain William Kidd, a privateers man of good repute from New York, to proceed against pirates in a ship called the Adventure Galley, on a 'no-capture-no-pay basis. The adven turers included Captain Kidd, Robert Livingston, Lord Chancellor Somers, the Earl of Oxford (First Lord of the Admiralty) the Earl of Romney and the Duke of Shrewsbury (Secretaries of State). Bellomont and the straw men, to whom the king's grant of treasure was later made, did not con tribute a cent." "On September 6, 1696, with a 'crazy' vessel and a crazier crew, Cap tain Kidd proceeded on his mission." the archivist said. He picked up sev eral pirates Including "a Moorish ship of 200 tons and a Bengal merchant man of 500 tons, both having French passes and being lawful prizes." He came to New York and then fo Boston "through the trickery of Bello mont, who promised him safe conduct. With the remnant of his crew he was arrested, sent to England, tried for murder and piracy, convicted and hung on Execution Dock, Friday, May 23, 1701, to satisfy the political exi gencies of the times. It was either Lord Bellomont,- the Lord Chancellor, the First Lord of the Admiralty, the Secretaries of State or Captain Kidd, and under this circumstance he had no chance. Victim of Frameup Collusion and perjury are. plainly evident in his trial; the French passes which would have cleared him of the piracy charge, though produced in Parliament, were suppressed in the Admiralty Court. The least said about Bellomont's action in the mat ter the better. He fooled Kidd, he fooled his council, and worst of it is, he allowed it in his letters to the lords of trade. "The Captain Kidd of today is a composite pirate made up of all who frequented our shores from 1637 to 1837. Propaganda of the worst kind blackened the reputation of a man of whom a recognized French authority says: 'It may be well doubted whe ther any man in equally trying cir cumstances has ever been truer to his trust. ' "And yet the great American public persists in calling Captain Kidd a pirate and in searching for his treas ure, which does not exist." made public today.
