Mr. Dale answers all of the ques tions in full as given below. Mr. Kennedy says that he will answer if he is still in the race after the primary. Mr. Fleetwood and Mr. Green also sent in answers. The questions were asked to assist in obtaining an intelligent ballot at the ap proaching primaries, and with the hope that the candidates would be glad to ex press their views on the subjects asked. Mr. Dale answers: 1. Are you in favor of having the United States take the initiative in in ternational co-operation to prevent war? Yes. The disarmament conference was a superb achievement. 2. Are you in favor of independent citizenship for married women? Yes; as evidenced by the following facts. The bill relative to naturaliza tion and citizenship of married women II. II. Sr2.", June 20. 1022) came to a record vote on motion to recommit t which if carried, would have defeated it. I voted No i. e., against this recommit ment. The bill passed by viva voce vote.

The necessity for action against the practice of lynching which has become so inhuman and common, overcame my doubts, as to a measure with provisions which may not stand the constitutional test, and 1 voted for the bill as it passed the house. Allow me to state as follows in refer ence to your record of my votes on measures naineJ. Woman Suffrage. Your record is that I did not vote. I have advocated this proposal through all my political experience. Supported state suffrage measures during two ses sions in Vermont senate. Advocated sub mission of constitutional amendment ever since I have been a member of the national house. January 10, 1S11S the proposal of amendment passed the house by one vote. When it was submitted by conjrress in May 1019, it passed the house by 71 more than the required ma jority, hut I was prevented from voting by the following conditions. At the close of the sixty-sixth congress, I went to France to obtain information respect ing soldiers whose cases would come within the jurisdiction of the committee on exienditures in treasury department, of which I had been made chairman..... My request by cable .to bo paired for the amendment, was denied for the rea son that I could not be counted as a member of the new congress until pres ent to take the oath of office. There fore, on the final vote, I am correctly re corded as not voting. Prohibition. Correctly recorded : Yes. Army bill. I do not find any army bill on which I did not vote.

WOMEN OPPOSE STRICT PROHIBITION Literary Digest's Poll Shows Majority for Modification Many In Fa vor of Soldier Bonus. 'NEW YORK, Aug. 21. Women of the eastern states ana particularly New ork are opposed to the present dry laws, the first 2i,lK)U votes in a poll by the Literary Digest oa prohibition indi cate, 'lhe first returns, according to the current Digest, which gives the first summary oi a special poll of 2,000,000 women, show more than t" per cent against the continuance and strict en forcement of the Volstead law. The percentage in the main poll is about 01 .5 per cent the same way. The first returns from the women on the soldiers' bonus question show a much stronger sentiment for the bonus than the main poll. This showing the Digest calls all the more trustworthy, since the returns are from near-by states where, as the main pull has shown, bonus sentiment is hardly as strong as in the country at large." '"It must be taken into consideration as affecting the continued 'wetness' of the women's poll, that the vote so far cr.ines chiefly from the eastern states, which are commonly considered to be 'damper' in sentiment tnan are those of the Middle West. Northwest and South." savs the Digest. "While New York, in the small re Turns from the women's poll so far re ceived, eives 1.044 for -enforcement to :s,202 for modification and 2.2:5!) for re peal, a total of more than three to one against the present, laws, tho firt few returns from Kansas show 13l for en forcement to "s for modification and 22 for repeal.

A-AM1LNE (Continued From Our Last Issue) CHAPTER XVII THE Inquest was at three o'clock; thereafter Antony could have no claim on the hospitality of the Red House. By ten o'clock his bag was packed, and waiting to be taken to the "George." To Bill, corning up eairs after a more prolonged break fast, this early morning bustle was a little surprising. "What's the hurry?" he asked. "None. But we don't want to come back here after the Inquest. Get your packing over now and then we can have the morning to our selves." "Righto." He turned to go to his room, und then came back again. "I say, are we going to teil Cayley that we're staying at the 'George'?" "You're not staying at the 'George. BilL Not officially. You're going back to London." . "Oh!" "Yes. Ark Cayley to have yom luggage sent in to Slanton. ready for you wli-sii you cutch a train there after the inquest. You can tell him that you've got to 6ee the Bishop of London at once. The fact that you are hurrying Lack to London to be confirmed will make It seem, more natural that . I should resume my Interrupted solitude ut the 'George' as soon a3 you have gone." "Then where do I sleep tonight?" "Unofficially, in my bed, unless .hey've got another spare room at the 'George. I've out your confirma tion robe I mean - your pyjamas and brushes and things In my bag, ready for you. Is there anything else you want to know? No? Then go and pack. And meet me at ten thirty beneath the blasted oak or in the hall or somewhere. I want to talk iiid talk and talk, a -1 I must have mv Watson." "Good," said Bill, juid Wv..t ofT to his room. An hour later they wandered out together into the patk. "Well?" said Bill, as they sat down Underneath a convenient ree. "Talk away." "I had many bright thoughts In my bath this morning." began An tony. "The brightest one of all was that we were being damn fools, and working at this thing from the wrong end altogether." "Well, that's helpful." "If we had been professionals. I believe we should have gone at it 3 E3 from the other end. The Robert end. We've been wandering about Mark and Cayley all the tima. Now let's wonder ubout Robert for a bit." "We know so little about him." "Weil, let's see what we do know. First of all, then, we know vaguely that he was a bad lot. "Yes." "And then we know rather a curious thing. We know that Mark told you all that this black sheep was coming. Now, why did he tell you?" Bill was thoughtful for a moment. "I suppose." he said slowly, "that he knew we were bound to see him and thought that the best way was to be quite frank about him." "But were you bound to see him? You were all away playing golf." "We were bound to see him if he stayed In the house that night." "Very well, then. That's one thing we've discovered. Mark knew that there was no chance of getting Robert out of the house at once." ;Bill looked at hl3 friend eagerly. '"Go on," ho said. "This ia getting Interesting." "He also knew something else," went on Antony, "lie knew that Robert was bound to betray his real character to you as soon us you met him." "Yes. That's sound enough." "Well, now, doesn't it strike you 3 3 I'MiianiM is quite isssilIe Secretary Black will henceforth be a little bit more charitable towards persons reporting accidents caused by the blinding rays of the sun.

He considered the possibility of Robert's behaving like an ordinary decent person In public, and decided that it was very unlikely. He came to those two de cisions instantaneously, as he wa reading the letter. Isn't that rather quick work?" "Well, what's the explanation?" Antony waited until he had refilled "WHAT'S TUB HURRY?" ASKED. Ill and lighted his pipe before answer ing. "What's the explanation? Well, let's leave it for a moment and take another look ut the two brothers. In cor, junction, this time, with Mrs N'orlmry." ''Mrs. Norbury?" said Bill, sur prised. "Yes. Mark hoped to marry Miss Norbury. Now. if Robert really wts a blot upon the family honor, Mark would svant to do one of two things. Either keep it from the Norburys al together, or else, if it had to come out. tell them himself before the news came to them indirectly. We'd, he told them. But the funny thing is that he told them the day before Robert's letter came. Robert came, and was killed, the day before yester day Tuesday. Mark told Mrs. Nor bury about him on Monday. What do you make of that?" "Coincidence," said Bill, after care ful thought. "He'd always meant to tell her; his suit was prospering", and just before it was finally settled, he told her. That happened to be Mon day. On Tuesday he got Robert's letter, and felt jolly glad that he'd told her in time." "Well, It might be that, but it's rather a curious coincidence. And here is something which makes it very curious indeed. It only occurred to me in the bath this morning. In spiring place, a bathroom. Well, ICs this he told her on Monday morn--ing, on his way to Middleston in the car." "Sorry, Tony; I'm dense this morning." "In the car. Bill. And how near can the car get to Jallands?" "About six hundred yarda." "Yes. And on his way to Middles ton, Mark stop's the car. walks six hundred yards down the hill to Jal lands, says, 'Oh, by the way, Mrs. Norbury, I don't think 1 ever told you that 1 have a shady brother called Robert.' walk3 eLx hundred yards up the hill again, gets into the car, and goes off to Middleston. Is that likely?" Bill frowned heavily. "Yes, but I don't see what you're getting at. Likely or not likely, we Cash In On Foresight Be fortified against elements beyond your con trol.

It wasn't instantaneous. i$ He knew on Monday that Robert p was coming, and decided then that you would all have to know." g "Then how do you explain the let- f ter?" "Well, let's have a look at It." Antony took the letter from his pocket and spread it out on the grass between them.- ' "?.Iark, your loving brother is com ing to feee you tomorrow, all the way from Australia. I give you warning so that you will be able to conceal your surprise but not I hope your pleasure. Expect him at three or thereabouts." "No date mentioned, you see," said Antony. "Just 'tomorrow'." "But he got this on Tuesday." . "Did he?" "Well, he read It out to us on Tuesday." ' , "Oh, jes! he read it out to you." Bill read the letter again, ani then turned it over and looked at the back of it. The back of it had noth ing to say to him. "What about the postmark?" he asked. "Ve t aven't got the envelope, un fortunately." "And you think that he got this letter on Monday." "I'm inclined to think so. BilL Anyhow, I think 1 feel almost cer tain that he knew on Monday that his brother was coming." "Is that going to help us much?"- "Xo. It makes It more difficult. There's something rather ut;oanny about it all. I don't understand it." He was silent for a little, and then uuded, "I wonder if the inquest is going fo help us." "Wh:tt about last night? I'm long ing to hear what you make of that. Have you been thinking it out at all?" "Last night," said Antony thought fully to himself. "Yes, last night wants some explaining." Bill waited hopefully .for him tc explain. What, for instance, had Antony beer- looking for in the cup board? "1 think," began Antony slowly, "that affer last night we must give up the idea that Mark has been killed; killed. I mean, by Cayley. I don't believe anybody would to to so much trouble to hide a suit of clothes when he had a body on his hands. The b.ody would seem so much more important. I think we may take it now that the clothes are all that Cayley had to hide," "But why not have kept them in the passage?" "He was frightened of the passage. Miss Norris knew ubout it." Bill said nothing for a little, and then with a sudden laugh confessed. "It was so exciting yesterday." he said apologetically, "and we seemed to be just getting there, and dis covering the most wonderful things, and now " "And now?" "Well. It's so much more ordi nary." Antony gave a shout of laughter. "Ordinary!" he cried. "Ordinaryl Well. I'm dashed! Ordinary! If only one thing would happen in an ordi- ' nary way, we might do something, but everything is ridiculous." Bill brightened up again. "Ridiculous? How?" "Bvery way. Take those ridiculous clothes we found last night. You f3 13 lean explain the brown suit, but why the underclothes. You can explain the underclothes In some absurd ' way, if you like you can say that Mark always changed his under clothes whenever he Interviewed anybody from Australia but why, in that case, my dear Watson, why didn't he change his collar?" "His coliur?" said Bill in amaze ment. "His cellar. Watt.on. There was no collar In the bag last night. Shirt, socks, tie everything except a col lar. Why?"
