PRICE FIVE CENTS i PRESIDENT-ELECT HARDING CONSIDERING APPOINTMENTS Is Fast Disposing' of a Number of Miscellane6us Ap pointments. TO SELECT CABINET SOON! Very Likely That Charles Evans ! Hughes Will Be Selected j Secretary of State. (By Associsttd Press) ST. AIGl'STINK. Fla.. Fc. 11. "While President -elect llardinc was dis poning of another list of miscellaneous .appointment today it became known that In th very ear future ha would begin a scries 'of conferences calculated to bring to a head the whole question of a. cabinet selection. The names of three of those expected here within the next few days attracted particular attention because all of them are known to have boen under serious consideration for vablnet places. They are Charles Kvans ITuirhes, of New York. Charles G. lawen. Illinois. ail .1. J. Pavls, of Pennsylvania, considered for the portfolios of state, treasury and labor, respectively. Vary ing significance was attached, however, lo their visits. Mr. Hughes generally Is conceded by those close to Air. Harding to be - the president-elect's choice for secretary of einte. and the (act that lie Is coming to Florida was accepted as one more Indi cation that he will get the appointment, ft Is expected that at the conference, which probably will take, place early nest week, tl.e two will discuss the whole question of preliminary diplomatic steps toward formation of an association of nations. The prospective visit of Mr. Pawes. who recently got Into the limelight by it spectacular denunciation of the re publican congressional ommlttees in vestigating the conduct of the war, is niinre of an enigma. It was understood In December that he was foremost in Mr. Harding's mind for the treasury po rtion, but In recent weeks the friends of other aspirants have become so ac tive as to greatly becloud the rituation. Mr. Da we Is visiting relatives in Florida, and It Is pointed out that it would bo only natural for him to call and pay his respects to the leader of hia party. Whether any deeper meaning Is attached to the appointment is a question that no one at Mr. Harding's headquarters would answer. No announcement has been made of a formal appointment for Mr. .Davis, but he is expected to be In St. Augustine within a few days. It is understood that Mr. Harding has heard flattering reports of hls-'vcapahllity, but desired a doner personal acquaintance before making a decision in regard to his appointment. Today the president-elect conferred with Senator Wadsworth and Charles P. Hlllis of New York, who are understood lo have come here to discuss among other thirps the local republican situ ation In their state. He also saw John Barrett, former bead of the Fan-American Union, and Mrs. W. H. Kelton. both of whom had appointments postponed from yesterday. Mr. Barrett talked over Fan-American affairs and Mrs. Felton gave Mr. Hard ing the views of nn anti-administration democrat on the league of nations and other subjects. After his talk with the president elect. Mr. Barrett issued a statement predicting that the attitude of the com ing administration would be one of friendliness for Fan -America and that men of highest qualifications would be chosen to the Fan-American ambassa dorships. Or. C. F.. Sawyer, of Mnjton, Ohio, President-elect Harding's physician, ar rived here tonight and will remain with the Harding party during the remainder of the visit to Florida. Although there has been no definite announcement It la considered likely that he Mill be made white house physi cian during the coming administration.

The Bulletin constantly has been "bilged to chance offices on account of mi'ltary raid but continued to be se cretly produced.

BY RED CROSS! TORNADO H NEGRO SAYS EFFORT IS NARROW-BE! Rep. Slemp Warns Virginia Democrats Against Redis ricting State. DECLARES IT "UNFAIR" If Done, Republican Strength in Congress Would Probably Retaliate. (By Associated Press) ROANOKE, Va.. Feb. 11. Warn ing Virginia, democrats that it would be "narrow-minded, unfair and inde cent" to redistrict Virginia so that the republican majority in the ninth congressional district of the state might bo eliminated, Representative C. Bascom Siemp of the ninth Vir ginia district, in a statement sent to Virginia newspapers today, intimated that tho republican strength in con gress will be employed to cut the state's, representation from 10 to six members as a retaliation. At a recent conference of democrat ic committeemen from the fifth, sixth, ninth and tenth Virginia congressional districts here, it was decided that plans be worked out to redistrict the sixth and ninth districts to "elimi nate the republican majority in the ninth." The committeemen proposed to submit suich a plan to the state legislature in 1922. Commenting on this plan, Mr. Slemp's statement, in part, follows: "This is such a narrow-minded view that I do not believe for one moment that any success will attend such a movement. The republican party at the November election, even under unfair registration and election laws of the state, cast two-fifths of the vote of the state, or approximately 100,000 votes for Harding to 150,000 votes for Cox. "In fairness,-- the state should send three republicans to congress. To deny them all representation would be so unfair and so indecent that it would be shocking to all fair-minded men and women in the state and I may say would be resented by repub licans generally in the nation. "It has not been bad for the state that Virginia has had one republican district it would be far better if it had more. In both war and peace the record of the ninth district has been irr accord with the best inter of the state and nation and the V.., 000 men and women who believe in republican policies will not further be denied their fair representation in legislative assemblies. "In the existing congress the fight to save the state from losing four of the 10 seats was made by the repub lican congressman from Virginia in the republican caucus and was won there. In tho next congress, so far as the house is concerned, the demo cratic party, so far as being an ef fective force goes, is a negligible quantity, not even having one-third of the membership. In the senate the republican majority is 22. I may say that not one of this majority is in sympathy with the political methods existing in the south. If a further denial of republican representation in legislative assemblies continues and goes to' the extent of absolute exclu sion of republicans, ,the democrats of the state may expect counter action on the part of republicans in the na tion in the most effective way pos sible." LABORERS REFUSE $5 DAILY WAGE (By Associated Press) GREAT FALLS, Mont., Feb. 11. All efforts of the city of Great 'Falls to create work for its unemployed men are to be abandoned because of refusal of the business agent of the Federal unlbn, an unskilled organiza tion affiiliated with the American Federation of Labor, to permit its members to work for $5 daily.

These rumors were discounted, how ever, by Atwood's statement that he was "sore" because he could not stand trial with the other defendants. Judge IV D. Bailey, presiding in cir- i cuii court today made good his threat! 'CAPITAL SHIPS OBSOLETE,' OPINION OF NAVAL EXPERTS IEGR0 ROBBER IS ARRESTED Capture by Police Officers May Solve Several Mysterious Burglaries. The probable solution of many of the robberies and burglaries that have been turned in to the pmlice station was found yesterday with the arrest of Marsh Ellis, negro. Arti cles answering descriptions of those taken from homes in all sections of the city were said to have been fo r.-,.1. In the Ellis home, Lukes al' arrest of Ellis and his wife i by Captain Harper and Of t . ; ncll. The officers started on the trail of the negro yesterday morning at 7 o'clock, when a fruit store of Catches Brothers on East Government com plained of the robbery of the cash register. Officers O'Connell and Mc Intyre answered the oall and after obtaining a description of the negro who was said to have robbed the register started on the chase. Captain .Harper appeared on the serene and joined the two officers. About 10:30 a man reported recog nizing Ellis as the man who robbed his home on Barrancas avenue re cently and attempted to hold the ne gro for the officers. In spite of using pliers and other articles on the head of Ellis, the negro broke away and the man followed. Af the home of Ellis Officer 'Connell appeared on the scene just as the negro's wife was about to use a brick on the head of the man who was trying to hold her husband. The woman was taken to the city jail. Yesterday afternoon Captain Har per and Officer O'Connell were riding in a negro section of the city and saw Ellis standing by a building. They stopped the car and O'Connell started after the negro. Ellis ran i around the building but was stopped and held by Captain Harper, who had gone in the opposite direction from O'Connell in the effort to head Ellis. Four shots were fired in the effort .to halt Ellis. During the chase after Ellis, a skin 'game with 11 dark participants was broken up, three hoboes were placed under arrest, a deserter was taken in tow and other suspicious characters were landed in the city jail. At tho home of Ellis the officers found a large variety of articles, in cluding a bank book belonging to W. G. Porter, an overcoat said to have been taken from the home of Mr. Alslip, Barrancas avenue;' a quantity of money, several pairs of trousers, silk shirts, coats, suits of clothes, a gold watch, pistol, pocket books, silk stockings, 10 pairs of shoes, razors and other articles. These were all taken to the police station and will be held for identification. Some of the articles were identified by people whose homes have been robbed and any one who has lost ar ticles by robbery is asked to view the articles in the effort to determine the ground covered through these activi- 7. . ties The Catches store cash register has been robbed regularly and systemat ically, according to .the manager of the store. The4 regular robbery has been going on for some time and the storekeeper set a trap for the burglar, with the result that yesterday the negro was. identified as he was taking the money from the register. The burglar would open the regis ter while the manager of the store was on the sidewalk cr was in the other room of the building. As the burglar was emptying the consents of the register yesterday he was grabbed by the extra man, who was in wait ing for the prowler. The negro broke away but- was recognized. A good description was given the police as the r.egro made a habit of sitting around the store. to lock up witnesses if found, who failed' to appear in court. John Smith Balsden, whose testi mony is regarded as very important by the prosecution, was placed in jail after being found by a deputy sheriff. Baisden had failed to answer roll call yesterday. A recess was taken early this after noon at the request of the prosecu tion in order that it could interview witnesses who had arrived during the morning from remote sections of the country. It was stated by counsel for the state that questioning of these witnesses might result in a number of them being excused from further at tendance at the trial. It was also pointed out that depositions of others probably would be taken and that this procedure would undoubtedly lessen the duration of the ca3e. Surface Navy Can Go Nowhere But to the Bottom, is Statement Made. BORAH WANTS TO KNOW Whether Great Britain is "Cir culating Propaganda This Country. in (By Associated Press) WASHINGTON, Feb. 11. Th statement that he had received ug gestions that Great Britain was circu lating propaganda" in this country to deter American naval building was made in the senate today by Senator Borah, republican, Idaho, during a general debate on disarmament. He ' understood, he said, that the facts were m possession of the navy de : artment. ' Senator Poindexter. republican, Washington, author of the senate' naval committee's recent adverse re- ror a six month's naval holiday, in answer to a question whether the committee's investigation had dis closed any such situation, reolied thaf there had been "some testimony" on the subject but the committee did not believe it Bhould be made public. If this information i In th hanrt. of the navy department," Senator Borah said, "the congress should have It. We are informed that in th Be ehives of the navy denartment ther is proof of the propaganda conducted by Great Britain. At the same time we are told that the British ambas- ... , .3 v., , mo wa.y 1 1 e-i e lit Hiiinrewr a disarmament conference." Senator Borah again ureed that an agreement be reached between the naval powers for reduction of build ing programs and also advocated a carerui investigation to determine whether capital ships are tactically obsolete. . "Unless there is an agreement reached between the United States and the powers competing In naval building" he said, "it will lead to war inevitably." Opinions of American, British, Ger man and other naval experts that capital ships have become obsolete were presented by Senator Borah. He read from, a letter by an American rear admiral, retired.-who said: "I would stake my life that in a few years a surface navy alone can go nowhere but to the bottom." The name of the officer who wrote the let-ter. Senator Borah said, would be given to the naval committee if it desired. This officer, he added, also, wrote that the United States could never be attacked successfully by a power or (combination of powers from overseas. Senator Poindexter, in defending the naval committee's report support ing the. capital ship building program, deeclared ' that if the United States accepted the building postponement plan it would "become at once a de feated nation, would lose its insular possessions and its citizens would he able to travel the seas only upon terms law down .by rival nations. "Before sitting down witih those nations at the conference table." he said, " the committee feels we should take precautions not to sit down dis armed. If the six months' suspension were adopted we would lose, in addi tion, between $15,000,000 and $25,000 -000." The senator said he would like tn know whether Great Britain would reduce ts fleet to the present strength of the American navy and if Japan would actually stop naval construc tion. He asserted that the RriMh main fleet was twice as strong as the American ami that Japan would equal the American strength within the next three or four years. Senator Smith, democrat. Georaria. suggested that Great Britain give the United States in payment for its war debt half of Its naval forces so that the two powers would be equal in strength. a an tttttxnn xnunuunmn tt WEATHER FORECAST.
