Curbing of monoplies by an International Trade commission, was urged today by Huston Thompson, federal trade commissioner, speaking at the Pan-American Financial conference here. Pointing out the success of the Feder al Trade commission in halting activi ties of "trusts" in price boosting and un fair trade methods, Thompson said there is need of an international body to prevent a trust in one country from un fair dealings in another country. "As the world began to fight its way out of fhe miasma produced, by war, it discovered that monopoly was occupy ing the seats of the mighty and trying to justify its right to them," said Thompson. "Reports from legislative halls and the declarations in trade jour nals of the nations demonstrate this." Great Britain, Denmark. Canada and Argentina, he said, are preparing to battle monopolies, by cutting trade com missions. "The spirit of fair play in trade must be reciprocal. American competitors mays police each other in your coun tries," Thompson said, in explaining the benefits to be secured from such an in ternational body. "Our Federal Trade commission will be in duty bound to umpire their actions. After each nation has its own ti;ade commission to follow its competing exporters- there is a final step to be taken." Thompson suggested the establish ment of commissions in each country along the lines of the Federal Trade commission in this country, and the merging -of all of them "into an inter national body, which would keep watch on trusts in all countries and where it would be possible for an individual commission to act, it would, but failing to be able to do so, would report to the international body composed of repre sentatives of each country, which would make an investigation and publish its findings. Until legislation was enacted, the in ternational body would have no means to enforce its finding except through a system of "pitless publicity" which might have its effect in securing the legislation needed. Thompson suggested headquarters of such a body could be established in a capital city to consider complaints be tween competitors of different nations "Fiscal and Currency Standards as the Measure of the Credit of Nations." was the subject for a talk by Paul M. Warburg, former member of the Fed eral Reserve Board. The conference closes tomorrow. W. R. C.

Anderson, Washoe stock man and rancher, who sometime Mon day night took his life to escape imag inary foes, had at intervals for more than a year expressed the fear that he was losing his mind, according to evi dence adduced at Reno yesterday by Coroner Foster at the inquisition into the cause of the tragedy. William Holbrook of Wellington, a nephew of the deceased, testified that he was with Anderson on Christmas day, 1918, a few days after the death of one af Anderson's sisters. Holbrook said hat his uncle appeared to be deeDlv af fected by the loss of his sister and in his despondency said that he had little to lve tor. Anderson also brooded at that time over the fear that he was losing his mind. ' - He reiterated his apprehension in this respect to Dave Riley, a neighbor, a few hours before he died. Riley testified that when he called at the Anderson home Monday afternoon, Anderson was in a highly agitated state of mind, stat ing that his enemies had surrounded the cabin and were "hounding" him. It was Riley who made the ghastly discovery the following morning. Mrs. Katherine Holbrook of this city, a sister of the deceased, said her broth er was born in Schleswig, Prussia, six tyyears ago, before that province was annexed to the German empire. At the conclusion of the testimony, the iury returned a verdict that Anderson ;ame to his death "by cutting his throat with a lazor with suicidal intent while temporarily insane. The funeral of Mr. Anderson took place at Reno today and was conducted hy the Danish society. GIVE WAY TO COUNT BUZZOFF! By United Press LONDON, Jan. 8. (By mail) Sir William Sutherland, M. P., -one of Lloyd George's secretaries, tells of an amusing experience he had in Budapest. He was perturbed as to how to get away. Bela Kun and the Bolshevists were in possession of the city and he could not get a passport or other facili ties. So he went and sat in a train, trust ing to luck to escape. Very soon some Bolshevists ap proached the carriage and spoke to him, but he made signs that he did not understand. They went away and brought back some high officials, and he was interrogated again. This time he felt himself growing pettish, and remarked heatedlv: "O, buzz off ! Buzz off !" These words created a great impres sion. Obeisances were made, a notice put on the window, and the carriage door was locked with the Englishman alone inside. The train .moved off. At the next station he opened the window and found that the notice read: "This compartment is reserved for Count Buzioff." THREE TO HANG FOR MURDER By limed Press MONTREAL, (Quebec), Jan. 22. Preparations were complete today for the hanging in Bordeaux jail here to morrow of three murderers. J. B. Lemay, Murdock Allen and Ro meo Lacoste, all under 20 years old, will be swung from the gallows for their murder of Alcide Payette, a St. Sulpice farmer. Pleas for executive clemency so far have failed. The men were sentenced to death on October 4, 1919, at the end of a trial that occupied five days. The jury re turned the verdict of death 19 minutes after it had received its instructions from Justice Desy. The condemned men replied in the negative when asked if they had anything to say. Payette was killed when the three men entered his home on August 16 last, after he had ordered them to leave.
