The court room and corridors were crowded during the closing hours of the trial. Women were in the majority. There was no demonstration when the verdict was announced. Creasy appeared unmoved. He walked steadily to the clerk's desk and answered the usual ueetkms.- He. was' remanded for sentence next Saturday.

They were submitted by the state, seeking to prove that Creasy shot the young teacher when she refused to entertain his suit longer; and by the. defense in suport of its contention that Miss Lavoy shot herself when Creasy suggested a postponement of their marriage. "Pear Billie?You said you did not want to .writ# any more, so I am just saying good night." "This letter, sent special delivery by Miss Lavoy," said the defense attorney in summing up, "is the answer to the whole case. It was sent after Creasy told tha girl that he no longer | loved her?that he was a divorced man." But .District Attorney Weeks ui closing for the people, introduced other letters seeking to show that the school teacher had ceased to care for Creasy. One of these was _ an unfinished jetter found on Miss Lavoy's desk, In whieh ahe wrote that "Billie was an 'oil can' and that she *hated mm." Early in June Creasy came from his home In Fort Thomas, Ky. The wu shot in her home, while Creasy was visiting her.

It is expechsd that the opinion will be translated at qnce into regulations for the guidandie of the enforcement i officials acting under authority of the treasury department. Comprising a document of 7,000 words, Mr. Dougherty's opinion la declared to go exhaustively into the subject of prohibition as it concerns the American merchant marine particularly, and incidehtally foreign ship- j ping sailing into and from American oorts. Three major points to be deAnitely \ passed upon are: 4 Whether transportation, and the , sale of liquor on shipping board ves- , sels, as property of the United States government, is illegal under the *pro- 1 hibition laws. Whether such transportation and sale on Americas privately owned shipping is illegal, when these ships j ? vmilivuift AIVUI AlllOtlVHU |MII ID or between foreign points. Whether it is illegal for foreign ships to carry liquor "in any form"? i as shtpstores, or otherwise?into the three mile limit of the United States coast, 01 into certain harbors even if sealed as ships stores. It is understood that in its present form, at least, the opinion will not placed upon the cohtrovertefl right of the United States to search a foreign ship for contraband liquors within the coastal waters. Officials of the department of justice maintained today their refusal to indicate the nature of the decision reached in the study of the maritime prohibition issue. They were unanimous, however, in expressing belief that considerable litigation would result in the early days of enforcement of regulations' based on the , opinion, which wottld necessitate subnot suggestion as to the methods of enforcement, it was said at the department, but will confine his findings entirely to the legal aspects of the questions involved. Support the Home Teem Union Hi will play Newberry ill Friday at 3 o'clock on the Newberry field and the home team needs the support of home folk. Mr. F. J.

I believe there are enough car owners in Union that have enough pride in their town and in their team to furnish transportation for these boys to go ovar to Newberry. We c*n leare the high school building at 11 o'clock Friday and go to^Newberry and be back in Union by^7 o'clock in the evening og probably earlier as the game is scheduled for 8 o'clock. There should he at least 60 people supporters of tho team go to Newberry and root for the teanr and encourage these boys who have worked hard and sacrificed time and energy in order to advertise our toign by turning out a good team. Phone me at 6-W or 417 if you will be willing to take your oar and toll me how many boys you can carry to Newberry on Friday, the 6th. Let's go and hit the Newberry line harder and harder. P, J.

The allied ministers in Constantinople are understood to have drawn t the attention of the Greek govern- ^ ment to tHe^necessity of keeping the Greek troops in Thrace under control 1 so as to avoid the possibility of a conflict. This was due to representations of the Angora government that the . Mohammedan population in Thrace were suffering exactions at tho hands of the Greeks and the Cftreek troops are in a dangerous state of unrest.

Premier Poineare strongly favors i needing of the European nations first or there is a growing feeling on th< art of the allied governments tha t least one European conference 01 eparations and debts will have to b< eld before the cooperation of thi Tnited States can be expected. Despite the anxiety over the Neai laat crisis, the allied powers, espec ally Belgium, are beginning to giv< onsiderable attention to the forth otning meeting. Exchange of viewi ave already taken place between th< 'tench and Belgian governments ovei he questions to be discussed. Premier Poincare's present plan U y offer to reduce the German indem ity to a figure between 40,000,000, 00 anl 50,000,000,000 gold marks ii eturn for the cancellation of th? 'rench debt to Great Britain and th< urrendering by the latter power o: er ' share in ' reparations, whict mounts to 22 per cent. One of the most important factor; uward the success of the Brusseli onference is thought to be the mis ion to Washington of Sir Ruber lorne, the British chancellor of thi xcliequer. A satisfactory arrange nent between the United States ant Ireat Britain for the consolidation o! ne nnusn a em. wouia insure me sue ess of the Brussels gathering is .hi lew of the* allied observers. Th< utcome of Sir Robert's Washingtot isit is therefore awaited with th' eenest interest. While the allies are said to realizi hat there is no possibility of the can ellation of the British debt, any defi ite agreement for funding it woi?U lace Great Britain in a position t' eriously consider acceptance of thi "rench premier's proposal. The French government has mad< 10 announcement concerning any fur her debt missions to Washington, al >Timm .repm debt nIl?X" * America, and some other official wouh etum to Washington this fall, witl letails which the United States fund ng commission requested. It is no mprobable that these details will b withheld until after the Brussel neeting, when France hopes to be ii i more favorable josition to discus >er debts to the United States. Although America will not be din ouraged from sending a representa ive to Brussels, M. Poincare and oth x allied officials are believed to b onvinced that the best way to engag he active interest of the Unite States in the question of inter-allic lebts is for the European nations t tet together first, reduce the indemni y and settle their own respective wa ibligations.

WAGE QUESTION 1 NOT YET DECIDED e | Chicago, Oct. 8.?A proposal for a e two cents an hour increase for the track and common laborers of the Maintenance of Way union, numbering about 300,000, late today was temporarily refused by the United States Railroad Labor board. Only seven of the nine members have taken part in the discussions which opened yesterday. Albert Phillips of the labor group and Samuel Higgins of the railroad group, being absent. The public representatives, Chairman Ben W. Hooper, R. M. Barton, and G. W. W. Haner, it was authoritatively reported, sponsored the rejected increase It was understood that their offer was based upon the general change in industrial conditiohs since last March when the evidence upon which the last cut of the track and common laborers wages, amounting to five cents an hour, was 'presented. This decrease became effective July 1, last. Evidence offered the board at the recent plea for an increase made by E. F. Grable, president of the Main2 tenance of Way union, the public . group was understood to have held, 1 was the decrease in wages and living 1 conditions predominated over ad vances until June this year. Since 9 then, they held, there has been a slight upward trend. 1 ast Monday, the maintenance of way organization, representing more than 400,000 men, went into convenj Hon at LeLoit, with its president ref ported as impatiently waiting a decision on his plea for an increase to , explain his action of July 1, in hold, ing in abeyance a strike vote and re 1 fusing to accompany tne snip craits , in a walkout. At that time W. L. McMenimen, j labor member of the board, was generally credited with being the mediator who successfully persuaded Presi] dent Grable not to call a strike. Toj day he was reported as against the ? proposition differed by the public group, holding that the increase was e not sufficient. A. O. Wharton, the . third member of the labor group, also . was said to have stood by Mr. Mci Menimen In this attitude. They were ] According to information from aui thentic sources, the two railroad . members present, Horace Baker and t J. H. Elliott, declared themselves as c opposed to any increase at this time, s Although the deadlock was said to n be only temporary and will end in s evitably in a decision, probably an increas, some doubt was expressed as - to whether the labor board would - again consider the maintenance of - way case until the two absent meme bers return. Both are expected by e the middle of this month. The board d will not hold an executive sesion tori morrow but wil convene again Wed? nesday to consider! other matters, it was said. It was stated astprobable r that the maintenance of way conven: tion will adjourn before the board reaches a decision. The present minimum wages for 9 common laborers and trackmen under the recent decision of the board, i. range from 23 to 36 cents an hour, If the public group's offer would be 0 accepted, tLv new rates would be 2G to 37 cents an hour, retroactive to July 1, last.

Both miners and operatbrs' officials are optimistic that the convention tomorrow will name representatives to work out, during the next few months, a scheme on which basis wage negotiations may be started at a conference here next January. Phil H. Penna, of Terra Haute, secretary of the Indiana Coal Operators association and chairman of the opera tors' caucus, announced at the conclusion of the meeting that "we have reached a temporary cohesiveness which enables us, we think, to deal with the miners." Mr. Penna stated that while the operators could never reach an agreement on policy with the "solid front" that miners present, yet the operators were "more nearly in accord" than ever before. "We shall meet the miners tomorrow in joint conference and express what we think would be the view of all operators," he added. The operators declared they would carry out the terms of the Cleveland agreement which settled the bituminous coal strike last August providing for the naming of a committee with equal representations of miners ?nd operators to formulate a method to be followed,in negotiating wage scale agreements to become effective April 1, 1923. That part of the agreement, providing for the creation of a fact finding commission to make a survey of the coal industry, over which there has been much controversy between miners and operators since the conference convened Monday, appeared to be the point of compromise between the two parties at informal meetings between leaders of both sides today.
