BODY OF A NUDE GIRL IS FOUND IN GRAVE
BRITAIN REFUSES TALK ON FOREIGN DEBTS
RAMSAY MACDONALD_
STANDS FOR NO DEBT
PARLEYS AT PRESENT
(By The Associated Press)
LONDON, Nov. 13—Prime Minister Ramsay MacDon
ald and Neil E. Chamberlin, Chancellor of the Ex-chequer,
between them Tuesday, placed an effective quietus on any
efforts to bring the war debts question up for consideration.
After Mr. MacDonald told the House of Commons that
he planned to call no new conference to deal with the mat
ter, the lanky Mr. Chamberlin declared that the whole ques
tion of international debts'was in abeyance at present. The
above statements were made the moment Labor members
brought up the question of what they were going to do
about it.
Apparently MacDonald, still believes that England,
like the remainder of Europe can repudiate her debts and
still expect to be given the acme of consideration in world
affairs and United States markets and business. However,
no comment was made regarding how or in what light Am
erica would view these two statements.

der recalling them.
Work on the Arizona territory

pended on the Arizona side but con
tinued on the California side.

whole 'when the difficulties are
straightened out. Arizona was de
manding half of the power develop
ed by the dam and more than two
mllion acre feet of water from the

HAMMON COMPANY
PUTS IN LONG YEAR
DREDGING AT NOME
The Hammon Consolidated Gold
Fields at Nome is preparing for a
busy winter of activity by laying
main piping for thawing operations
in their three different dredging
areas. Crews are rapidly at work
constructing lines and preparing for
winter thawing, so that much froz
en ground will be in shape for the
dredges to start work on the first
thing in the spring. The work this
winter will follow along the same
general lines, it was reported, as
that last year, excepting that work
on the three areas will be starting
earlier.
Two 525 horsepower Fairbanks
Morse, valveless, five cylinder, two
cycle Diesel engines were received
on the steamer Depere of the Alas
ka Line this fall, for installation in
the power house of the company,
augmenting the othei^ six 525 horse
power engines which have been
carrying the load. The new en
gines are considerably different
than the older ones. The old ones
were four cycle and si* cylinder,
and were valved. The new engines
do not have a visible moving part,
except the fly wheel. They develop
three hundred revolutions per min
ute compared with the 275 revolu
tions per minute of the old ones.
Two, 350 kilowatt generators
were also received and are now
very nearly installed. The engines
are sitting on their concrete bases
and are just about ready to turn
over. An addition to the power
house building was necessary with
the installation of these new en
gines; the large building being ex
tended 36x64 feet. The concrete
block-foundations for the engines
are 24x28 feet by seven and one
half feet deep. It is planned this
winter when the power house shuts
down to tear up all of the wooden
flooring in the building and install
re-inforced concrete flooring
C. N. Johnson, Field Engineer for
the Fairbanks-Morse Diesel Com
pany, under the factory at Beloit,
Wisconsin, is installing the engines
for the Hammon Company. The
engines which arrived on the De
pere were taken in a dismantled
condition to the power house. The
largest weight handled by ships j
tackle and the lighterage equipment j
of the Lomen Commercial Co., was (
seventeen tons. The engines, will |
be assembled this fall and run ini
so they will be in perfect condition
to operate next spring when the
dredging commences.
No. 2 dredge of the Hammon
Consolidated Gold Fields was shut
down Nov. 4th, after having operat
ed since the middle of August. This!
is the dredge near the mouth of
Center creek.
No. 3 dredge is still operating on
the Third Beach Line, having com
menced operations last spring, dur
ing the last few days of May.
In an interview with J. D. Har
lan, General Manager of the Ham
mon Consolidated Gold Fields at
Nome, a general outline of opera
tions of their three dredges was ob
tained. No. 2 dredge which was
shut down Nov. 4, was in the most
desirable position for wintering and
rather than continue operations too
long and leave the dredge in an un
satisfactory place to continue in the
spring, work was suspended.
During the past season No. 3
dredge operating along the Third
Beach Line has been kept constant
ly busy. The dredging area laid
out calls for the dredge to dig back
and forth along that celebrated line
and thence due south, fairly close
to the Anvil Creek road, down to
ward Holyoke Creek, adjacent to
the Bessie Road. A number of
years work is entailed in this pro
gram. _,_._
Repair work and replacement on
No. 1 dredge located near Monroe
ville has been going on all summer.
This dredge, next season, is to work
that area from its present location,
down to Monroeville, a distance of
about one-half mile, and another
half mile square.
No. 2 dredge near the mouth of
Center Creek, will cross Snake
River next season and proceed up
ADMINISTRATION NOW
PLANNING SCRAPPING
EMERGENCY AGENCIES
(By The Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 13—A new air of optimism that
the business revival will soon ease its much government re
covery load, surrounded certain New Dealers as the admin
istration made its first move to scrap some of the emergency
agencies, as signs of the beginning of the march toward
normal condition#:—*— ——————.— •—
Many observers cited these developments as almost
completed. An authoritative statement from the White
House said that no more money would be asked for the
Home Owners Loan Corporation which closed its doors to
any new applications for loans.
The Home Owners Loan Corporation said that private
business would soon be able to reassure agencies in charge
of this task.
A statement by Jess Jones, Chairman of the Reconstruc
tion Finance Corporation, said that his agency planned to
ask no more funds from Congress.
The action of the United States Treasury in removing
restrictions on the movement of foreign exchange, seemed
to some onlookers that no further development of the Amer
ican dollar was planned or intended for the immediate fu
ture.
A
UNITED STATESSAYS
NOTHING REGARDING
ENGLAND’S ATTITUDE
(By The Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 13—United States government
officials had no direct comment to make on the MacDonald
debt aannouncement. Despite the fact of no official state
ments, it soon became known that the American attitude
toward this section would remain unchanged. The attitude
of the United States is that it considers these obligations
still due, without further reductions and regardless of for
eign attitudes. The United States tbdate has allowed many
concessions regarding the debts due her, but a year ago, the
government adopted the point of view that moratoriums
and other considerations following upon the general plan of
putting the matter off every time it came to a direct point,
must cease, and that henceforth "the United States would
place the debts due her on the ledger, and expect to be paid.
The attitude of the United States was severely criticiz
ed at that time by almost every foreign power, although
they owed fhe amounts due and admitted they did. Their
repudiation of these debts did not sit very well with the
people of the United States, and was directly apparent in
their attitude toward foreign merchandise and foreign tour
lists trade.

come back down to its present lo
cation.— *■— —-:
With this extensive program of
dredging planned, advance thawing
in frozen areas will progress this
winter. At present pumps are kept
going in the Number Three area
circulating the water in the pond so
that the dredge will be able to
moye freely. With indications as
they are now, no wind, and no
snow, several more days of dredg
ing are expected. In fact No. 3
dredge will not be shut down until
weather forces discontinuance due
to ice in the pond. This dredge
dug along one line all summer and
at present is preparing to turn, pre
paratory to making another cut
backward to the westward, on the
south side.
