‘PERSECUTION’ Bishop Flatly Refuses To Answer Question On Politics WASHINGTON. June 3.—fAV Bishop James Cannon, Jr., today flatly refused before the senate lobby committee to answer a ques tion about his political activities In the 1828 presidential campaign. Senator Walsh, democrat, Mon tana, in adjourning the committee, informed the bishop that “of course you will have to take responsibility" for declining to answer. Cannon replied the committee’s Investigation of him was “persecu tion.” This stirred the crowded com mittee room into laughter, applause and hisses. “I cannot help but get the im plication in that statement,” said Walsh. Cannon hastily replied: ”1 do not charge you, Senator, with persecution.” Just previously, the bishop had charged that wet and Roman Cath olic interests had tried to discredit him. Walsh is a Catholic, and a dry. ^1 got back all my^ PEP and WEIGHT in no time by The Stars of “Broadway Melody” Gayer Than " Ever!

A Letter From Judge Dancy The following statement, setting torth that the county protection levee system was in no way at fault in the overflow from the Rio Grande below Brownsville, was made bv County Judge O. C. Dancy Tuesday: “So far as I know or can ascer- j tain, not one of Cameron county’s le\ees has failed to hold back the ""iter in this flood. “More than four years ago plans were not only prepared, but on May 17. 1926, contract was actual - lv let for construction of levees be'ow Brownsville, where the river broke out as I understand, last Friday. These levees were not con siructed for the reason that land owners refused to let us have rights 'f way. Thi break below Browns ville was in no sense whatever a part of the county levee system. “Sunday about dark we got per mission from the land owners to build a Wee. and immediately or dered the county's dragline to the scene of the trouble. This drag line had to be moved from La Feria and arrived last night and started ♦o work this morning building new levees where we wanted to build them four years ago. The job should be complete by 3:30 p. m today. “There are no gates in the Rancho Viejo or In any of our floodwavs in Cameron county. “Saturday night without the knowledge o consent of the county engineers or other authorities, for ces working for a big land owner constructed a dam across said floodway, which, on the demand of the county, was opened up on Sunday. * The overflow below' Brow’nsville started before this dam was con structed. As to whether the con struction of this dam aggravated *be condition below Brownsville, I no not know. “Of course the country between me county levees and the river has leer, flooded, and this was to be expected. "There has been considerable ermment on the fact that the Ar royo and the north floodway have teen carrying no water. Both of these outlets rise in Hidalgo county ana over which we have no control. I will say, however, in justice to the Hidalgo county authorities, that so far as I know or believe, there was no obstruction of any of the outlets from the river into said north floodway and arroyo. "At Rio Grande City the bed of the river * several times bigger than it Is at Brownsvlle, consequently a small river at Rio Grande City be comes a big river at Brownsville.” Fights Break Out In Honan Province SHANGHAI, June 3—(JP>—After an apparently brief cessation of hostilities between the nationalist government and the northern al liance. which is seeking to create an independent government in north China centering at Peiping, advices from the Honan prvince zone of police toda Indicated renewed fighting was Imminent.

IT’S A riot: FLORIDA G.O.P. FACTIONS VOTE Control of State Party Is Chief Issue Involved In Balloting JACKSONVILLE, Fla., June S — —Florida Republicans balloted todav In their first party primary, a privilege made possible by the heavy vcte in the 1928 election in which Herbert Hoover carried the state. The Republicans, however, did not qualify candidates for state of fices and were concerned principally with a struggle between fations led by Glenn B. Skipper, national com mitteeman. and W. J. Howey for control of the state party executive committee. Only two races had any claim for national attentiton and both were in the Democratic primary. Repre sentative Ruth Bryan Owen, daught er of the late William Jennings Bryan, sought a second term as a member of congress from the fourth district. She was opposed by Dewitt T. Deen, Daytona Beach attorney, who campaigned on a platform calling for repeal of the Eighteenth Amend ment. In another spirited contest. Sid ney J. Catts. picturesque war-time governor of Florida, made a bid for the Democratic nomination for congress in the third district. He was opposed by Tom A. Yon. the incumbent, and J. Harvey Bayliss, former mayor of Pensacola. FLOOD DANGER (Continued from page 1) there were only two-thirds bank ful.” he said. “This seems paradox ical. I know, but can be explained. When the river is full up there, the water breaks out before it reaches San Benito and Brownsville, more than a half of the water being carried away by floor controls. When the river Is only two-thirds full up in Rio Grande City, all the water tries to flow down the main channl. not breaking out until It reaches the low levees In this sec tion.” Tlie dangerous stage of the flood is definitely past, according to Mr Schnurbusch. The river will now begin to fall and relieve the tension on the levees.
