Sen ator Curtis, republican vice presi dential nominee, declared the demo cratic presidential nominee “has changed his position on every import ant question in the last three years." The senator made particular ref erence to a speech which he said the governor deliverd in Staplton, Staten Island. Nw York, on Nov. 2, 1922. He quoted as foiiow» from that speech. “What ia the truth about the tariff? The fact is that it is a coldblooded holdup of the whole American people in the interests of the few who v re only too well rep resented at V. -i H:igton.” “Governor Smith now says he is for a co pet t v« tariff," said the senator. “A competitive tariff never protected anything. He changed h'.s position so fast the ordinary reader can’t keep up with him. I am for pro*ecting American labor, American farmers and American industries. Renublicans have been for that and will continue to be." Welcoming crowds greeted the senator as he came through Connecti cut this afternoon. Governor Trum bull boarded the Curtis car at Mer iden. Royalists Lose Fight For Meet In Dallas Hall DALLAS. Oct. 20.—(JP)—Legal ef forts to force the city of Dallas to rent its auditorium to royalists for the purpose of discussing the prop osition that “a benevolent monarchy is better than our so-called democ racy” failed today when District Judge Young retused to issue a writ of mandamus. Richard Potts. secretary-general of the Royalist League of America, had sought a writ compelling the city to rent him the city hall audi torium. Judge Towne refused the order on the ground that he did not feel competent to interfere in the discretionary functions of the city commissioners. In refusing the writ, however, he expressed the hope that the commissioners would change their minds and rent the hall to the royalists. “I would permit anyone to speak in the city hall auditorium,” he said, “even on a political matter.” Potts first announced that he had obtained the auditorium for a meet ing tomorrow. His announcement came one day after the city had de nied Benjamin Gitlow, vice-presiden tial candidate for the Workers* par ty, the use of the same hall. When the lea^e to the royalists was called to the attention of the city commis sion, the permit was cancelled. War Outlaw Pad Is Given Approval Of Episcopalians WASHINGTON.

The gale reached a velocity of nearly a hundred miles an hour in parts of Ireland. Londoners, kept awake during the long night, heard a sixty-mile wind, interspersed with sheets of rain, rip tiles off their roofs and wreck their radio aerials. Telephones and tele graphs were completely crippled. Ireland still was virtually isolated tonight and communications were only beginning to be established with the northern counties. Property damage was particularly heavy along hte Clyde, where in ad dition to the havoc wrought by a seventy-five mile wind, large areas were inundated by heavy rains. All shipping, including trans-Atlantic, had to be suspended. The Anconia reached dock just as the storm was bursting. The passengers, including two hundred returning harvesters, had to spend an unscheduled night aboard ship as the heavy seas pre vented the tender from approaching the liner. Communications with the continent were delayed seriously through the breakdown of many direct Anglo-Eu ropean telegraph lines. B. & 0. to Start Rail-Air Service BALTIMORE.
