STATEMENT BY
ATTORNEY GENERAL
Ponzi Claimed He Did Business Through
Large New York House Declares
He Will ray All Notes With Interest
Whether Matured Or Not.
BOSTON. Aug. 9. The investigation
of the bu.-iness affairs of Charles Ponzi
being conducted in behalf of the state
have thus far failed to disclose any
thing to confirm his claims that he had
dealt extensively in international re
ply coupons, according to a statement
today by Attorney General James Wes
ton Allen.
"The examination being conducted
on behalf of the commonwealth is not
completed," said Mr. Allen, "but it
is possible at this time to give certain
information in the public interest. Al
though Air. Ponzi claims that his deal
ings in international reply coupons have
been conducted upon a very large scale,
aggregating milions of dollars, the in
cstigution has disclosed nothing to
confirm his statement. Mr. Ponzi
claimed in his voluntary interview at
this office that all the funds which he
claims to have transferred to Europe
by drafts or credit for the purchase
of international reply coupons have
been sent through a New York institu
tion and in a later interview last week
lie stated he has received large amounts
from Europe from the sale and redemp
tion of coupons through the -same in
stitution. "While he refused to disclose the
name of the institution in New York
or his agents in Europe in his first in
terview at this office he stated that
the institution in New York through
which he did his business was a branch
of a well known financial institution
with a main office in MTdan, Italy; that
he was born near Milan and had known
this financial institution since his
birth; that the institution has branches
in Italy and in foreign countries and is
known practically all over the world.
He further stated that funds from the
branch in New York were transmitted
to a branch located in Naples which
was acting as a general agent of the

AMERICANS NOT
AFRAID TO DO PART

Big Problems for Next Administra

HYDE PARK, N. Y Aug. 9.-Fratik
lin D. Roosevelt, in a formal address
acceptng the, Demoeratc vce presden
tial nomination at his home here today,
joined with his chief, James M. Cox,
in accepting the challenge of the Re
publican party to make the league of
nations one of the principal issues o?
the national campaign.
"The Democratic party," he said,
"has offered to this nation a treaty of
peace which to make it a real treaty for
a real peace must include a league of
nations." "Today," he continued, " we
are offered a seat at the table of the
family of nations to the end that the
smaller peoples may be truly saved to
work out their own destinies. We shall
take that place. I say so because I have
faith faith that this nation has no sel
fish destiny; faith that our people are
looking into the years beyond for bet
ter things and that they are not afraid
to do their part. The league of nations
is a practical solution of a practical
situation. It is no more perfect than
was the original constitution, which
has been amended IS times and will
soon be amended the 19th.
Continuing, Mr. Roosevelt said in
part:
"Two great problems will confront the
next administration; our relations witli
the world and the pressing need of or
ganized progress at home. The 'latter
includes a systematized and intensified
development cf our resources and a pro
gressive betterment of our citizenship.

hand of a president who can see his
country above his party, and who, hav

skill to guide us along the road to things

footstep at the dictation of narrow
partisans who whisper "party' or of
selfish interests that murmur 'profits.'

Plans Being Drawn .By French and
British Officers Warning Pre
pared for Germany.
HYTHE, England, Aug. 9. Great Brit
ain and .France are convinced that the
Bolsheviki intend to capture Warsaw and
set up a Soviet! government in Poland.
This was learned from an ofiicial source
last night, following an announcement at
the conference between Premier Lloyd
George of (Jreat Britain and Premier Mil
lerand of France, held yesterday to dis
cuss the Polish situation, that the con
ference would continue today, when the
premiers will pass upon naval, military
and economic plans for saving Poland.
These plans are being drawn up by Mar
shal Foeh and Field Marslial Sir Henry
Wilson, chief of the British imperial
staff. j
The French are urging the establish
ment of a defensive line in Poland, either
before Warsaw or immediately behind the
capital if it is too late now for the for
mer. M. .Millerand also proposed that
the French and British troops in the pleb
iscite areas be used for this line, chiefly
for moral support, and that Rumania
and Czech o-Slovakia also be asked to send
troops.
At the close of the conference, which
lasted until after 8 o'clock last evening,
M. Millerand presented for the approval
of the British delegation a declaration he
had drafted. The substance of this con
stituted a warning to Germany that if
an attempt is made in any way to co-operate
with the' Bolsheviki, an army of
the allies will occupy the Ruhr region
and other points in German territory.
Mr. Lloyd George has not yet indicated
his approval of the declaration, but
French circles believe that he will agree
to it, and that the warning will be con
veyed to Germany either directly or by
an allied declaration.
An official' announcement yesterday
stated that the Soviet government had
definitely refused a 10 days' truce, re
o nested, by Lloyd George as a result of
Friday's meeting with the Russian mis
sion headed by M. Kanieueff and M.
Krassin.
The pieinieis received two notes from
Moscow yesterday in answer to Lloyd
George's request for a truce. Last night
they sent another note to the Soviet and
also advised Poland to seek a truce di
rect from the Bolsheviki, who indicated
n their refusal of the truce that if tlie
request came direct trotn me

Further details of the meeting in Lon
don Friday betwen the Uolstievik rep
resentatives and Mr. Lloyd George were
learned last night by The Associated
Press. Mi. Krassin and M. Kameueff ap
parently thought they would be able to
induce the Moscow government to ac
cept the terms of a truce and the refusal
A the Soviet government is taken in con
ference circles here as meaning tnat
Kameueff and Krassin have but minor
influence with Premier Lenine and War
Minister Trotzky.
At the conference LToyd George oi-
fered every guarantee that the truce would
not be used As a means tor reinforcing
he military -position of the 1 olea. The
British premier went so tar as to agree
to have Bolshevik officers behind the
Polish lines to see that the terms of the
truce were rigidly enforced. The premier
answered all the Russian obiectioim To
the plan, and Kameueff sent the plan to
Moscow by wireless with recommendation
that it be adopted.
In British and French circles it is ad
mitted -that the situation created by tlie
Bolshevik refusal of a truce lias drought
about a crisis only second in gravity to
that which .confronted) the allies m 1914.

SCHOOL TEACHERS TK CREW.
Two Women Adopt Novel JYietnoa oi
Getting from Porto Rico to Baltimore.
SAN JUAN, I. Aug. 9. When
the schooner Cornell P. White arrives
at. Baltimore, Md., it win lose two
women members of its crew, Miss
Georgiebelle Musser of Denver, Colo.,
and Miss Jane Waters of Bonner
Springs, Kansas, piifser and assistant
purser, respectively, wno. uum recently,
were school teachers in rorto ivico.
The difficulty of obtaining passage
on any of the passenger ships, together
with desire for adventure, were the
reasons given by friends of Miss Mus
ser and Miss Waters for their signing
up as part of the crew of the Cornell
P. White. They believed they would
arrive home safely, sooner or later, if
they went on a schooner while there
seemed to be no end of uncertainty
when they could get away if they
waited for a regular passenger ship.
So, after much persuasion, the skipper
of the Cornell P. White, who has a
daughter of his own in Baltimore,
agreed to take them.

OF PRISON TERM
John Kelley Brought Here
on Government Charge
Saturday
GOES TO JAIL IN
DEFAULT OF $5,000
Said to Have Forged Postal Certifi
cates and Tried to Cash Them in
Pittsfield, Mass. Wanted hy Navy
Department on Desertion Charge.
United States Marslial Arthur P. Car
penter of this place arrested John
Kelley of New York, alias Aloys Knoll,
alias John DeForge, when his term for
grand larceny expired Saturday at the
state prison in Windsor, to which place
he was sentenced in Burlington Sept. 20,
1919. He was brought here and late in
the afternoon was arraigned before
United States Commissioner Clarence M.
Miller on the charge of attempting to
secure cash on three United States postal
savings certificates on the back of which
he is alleged to have forged the name of
Aloys Knoll.
Kelley was placed under bonds of
$5,t)00 to insure his presence when
wanted, but as he could not furnish bail
he was taken to the ounty jail in New
fane to Avait until an order comes for
his transfer to the district of Massachu
setts. It is claimed that on Sept. 10, 1919,
Kelley presented to William II. Clifford,
clerk in the postoftiee at Pittsfield, Mass.,
three certificates, one for $."0 and two for
fclOO each, and asked for the monev. after
endorsing them with the name of Aloys
Knoll. Not being able to identify him-
hcIi to
the satisfaction of the clerk he
a meeting, did not receive the monev from the post
had. Wen uflk-e.- but it Ls undei-stnna fW i,
cashed the certificates elsewhere. It is
said also that he liad three more eertifi-
cates and that all six were stolen from
Mr.
Knoll in Canaan, N. Y. Some of
them are in the possession of the officers
Among Kelley 'a c fleets were two bank
books belonging to Mr. Knoll, but the
money was not obtained on them. The
books, also sonje checks, are in the pos
session of Marshal Carpenter.
When the government is through with
Kelley on the Pittsfield matter he is
likely to face other charges, as he is
wanted in New York state, also by the
navy department on the charge of deser
tion. Kelley's finger prints coincide with
linger prints of a man named DeForge
who deserted May 2S, 1919, from the
naval training station at Newport, It. I,
Kelley gives his age as 24 and says he
was born in New York Sept. 2, 1893.
CHINESE SLAVE
GIRL RESCUED
Dropped Note on Streets of San Fran
cisco Which Led to Her Libera
tion May Be Deported.
SAX FRANCISCO, Cab, Aug. 9.-Shuf-fimg
homeward through the fog in China
town the of,her night, a Chinese youth
noticed a piece of white paper flutter
through a circle of light from a street
lamp and fall to the pavement. He picked
it up and read its message, in Chinese
characters:
"I am a slave girl. I wish to get away
from my cruel masters. I have been
kept a prisoner six years on the fourth
uoor or mo jMocKton street. .My name
is Loi Mui. I was brought here -from
China when I was a little girl. I have
a friend who says if I can send word to
the man who passes in blue clothes with
a star they will help me. I want to go
back to China. Please help me."
The young Oriental to whom the note
had fallen happened to be American-born.
He knew that it was dangerous to inter
fere with the girl's captors and to inform
might mean death for him and his fam
ily. Ha went to the liall of justice with
the note and his name will never be
known to anyone but the police.
Police Captain O'Meara, with federal
officials and a representative of a Chinese
mission, raided the place an hour after
the letter was dropped out of the window.
They battered town three doors and on
the fourth floor found Loi Mui.
The girl is held in the city prison while
federal officers investigate her story. She
may: be deported. She .said she was sold
as a slave in China when she was 12 and
brought to this country afterward. De
tectives say she was held by the Hop Sing
tong, one of the strongest factions of
Chinatown. .

Hinsdale Machine Gets Worst of Argu-
ment with New York Touring Car
: Man Claimed He Was Hurt.
Four Polish residents in a Ford auto
mobile from Hinsdale, N. II., came to a
sudden halt near C: E. Allen's on Canal
street yesterday afternoon when their
car collided with a big New York touring
car, No. 248296, owned and driven by
Allen Wardwell of 13 Broad street, New
York city, who was alone and who was
driving to Cornish, Jf, II. The Ford was
owned and driven by John Bozak, car
number 14728. Three tires were stripped
from the Ford and the front axle was
sprung.
Mr. Wardwell would not allow either
car to be moved until the jioliee had in
vestigated. One of the Hinsdale men
claimed he was injured and Dr. W. II.
Lane had him taken to the Memorial hos
pital, but it could not be found that he
was hurt and he was discharged. The
Hinsdale ear was said to be on the
wrong side of the road and Mr. Wardwell
remained on his own side until it became
apparent that he must cross over or be
run into, and as he swung to the left the
Ford pulled toward the center of the
road and a collision followed. The police
say there was a strong odor of some
thing besides gasoline around the Hins
dale car.

Hinsdale and Parther South.
Brattleboro was visited by a severe
thunder storm yesterday afternoon, but
the severest part of the storm occurred
