MISQUOTED, AD MIRAL DECLARES SIMS SAYS TEAPOT TEMPEST IS BASED ON A GARBLED REPORT. Washington. June 12.—Remarks at tributed to him in press reports of his recent address before the English Speaking I'uion in London, in which li ecriticlsed activities fo Sinn Fein sympathizers in this country, were not correctly quoted and were mis leading Admiral W. S. Sims declared in si ca blegram received today by Seretary I lenby. “Statements that were attributed to me,” said the message, "were not cor rectly quoted Context misleading and garbled . Report of tsatements is in correct and inferential!)* wrong. State ment actually made wsis substantially the same as repeatedly made in public in America and in my book, 'The Vic tory at Sea,’ and in public addressed at meetings held for increasing good relations between the English speak ing people.” Cast in Statu Quo. Secretary Denby would not comment o nthe admiral’s message. In view of iln> fact that Mr. Denby yesterday re voked tbe rest of the officer's leave of absence and ordered him to return at once to the United States to report in person at the Navy Department, it was indicated no further steps will be tak en in the case until Admiral Sims’ re turn. It then will be decided, it was said, whether Secretary Denby will press his inquiry into the matter. Admiral Sims’ reference in his ca blegram to bis speeches in this country recalled the addresses he made in Bos ton last winter, in wheih he assailed Sinn Fein sympathizers in this coun try. Secretary Daniels was bombarded with telegrams and letters demanding that disciplinary action be taken against tin* officer, but no such steps were taken. -o THE GREAT REVIVAL CLOSES. The revival which lias been in pro gress at the First Presbyterian church of this city for past 15 clays conduct ed hv evangelist J. P. Kidd and singer. F F. Fitch, both of Little Rock, came to an end last night. There was an immense congregation present, filling auditorium and Sunday school rooms, to hear the last sermon by Mr. Kidd on “Memory in Hell" and there was very close attention to the solemn and Bibli cal discourse. There have been 30 ad ditions to the Presbyterian church and several will join the other churches of the city. Twenty-nine were received on ptofssion of faith and 10 were bap tized, 14 having been baptized in infan cy. Of the total number 10 were men and hoys and included all ages—hoys and girls from the Sunday school, young mi'ii and women in the prime of life an dthose of mature and busi ness life. Owing to the many calls for evnngc'listic service's, Messrs. Kidd and Fitch will have to separate and hold separate meetings through the summer. Mr Kidd going to Walnut Ridge and Mr. Fitch to Earle.

GRADUAL BUS INESS RETURNS REVIEW OF FEDERAL RESERVE BANK SAYS CONDITIONS ARE IMPROVING. A general improvement in the fi nancial situation points to a gradual stabilization of business conditions says the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago in drawing to a conclusion its recent review of business industry and finance for the month of May, which also as serts that business is going through a process of backing and filling as a re sult of the effort to liquidate stocks purchased at higher prices and to re linquish at the new market level, lines of merchandise as they are exhausted. The review covers a wide and diversi fied range of studies and it sums up the various situations as follows: The money market is improving and is stimulating hope. Unreasonable weather is delaying farm work. The supply of bankers’ acceptances is below demand. The commercial paper movement is slowing up. The motor industry is making strides toward normalcy. General manufacturing is marking time. The demand for raw leather is in creasing. The coal business is standing still. The packing industry is improving. Feeders o flivestock are facing losses. Dry Goods an dtextile buying is be ing done cautiously. The wholesale trade is less. The retail trade is steady. The manufacturer of clothing slows up. The demand for furniture is increas ing. Employment and pay rolls are de creasing. ' The number of building permits is decreasing. The bank finds there is a renewed activity in the effort to break up the frozen credits an dthus facilitate the thawing process, a problem that has beset the federal reserve officials for more than a year. Loans and discounts and investments other than tli United States securities owned are still on the down road, as shown in the reports by individual member bank throughout the district. The motor industry apparently is one oi the first of the great maufacturing lines to rebound from the extreme re pression of December. Do troit reports operations from (50 to 100 per cent, a condition which is enabling manufac turers who bought materials at high prices to work them up into finished product. In this way they are per mitted to liquidate their merchandise without such serious losses as seemed probable a few months ago. Prices of cars have been lowered again in several instances, this being made possible by the purchase of raw materials at lower prices. One of the prominent bankers of Detroit estimates that In another .30 to (50 days all high priced Inventories will have been liquidated. At the same time the cost of labor Is slowly com ing down and efficiency increasing in cities like Detroit. One outstanding feature in tne motor industry, as in other lines of business, is that those who are showing courage in the conduct of their business by forging ahead and manufacturing or using tip high priced materials on hand and replenishing at lower costs are finding a ready market for their pro ducts .even though it he at reduced prices: while those who have adopted n more conservative policy of manufac turing are necessarily liquidating their inventories mor eslowly, ami conse quently »rP having more difficulty in working out of the condition in which they found themselves at the close of last year. For instance, some of the leading motor companies report produc tion in excess of a year ago: this is In moderate or low priced ears. A factor fiom the dealer's standpoint is that there !s n more limited market for used ears, due to unemployment and general depression. Accordingly, the dealer finds his capital tied up in these ears, and is unable to make further sales, involving trade, until he has liquidated such stock. Many of the steel contracts to motor companies contain adjustment clauses. One unsatisfactory feature brought out by the reserve hank’s review. Is that on every hand buying is limited.—Ga zette.

Uncle Tad was the oldest son of Un cle Lawrence Turtle, who came to this county about 72 years ago and settled in the old Pisgnh settlement, where he lived until his death a few years ago. He was a man of generous impulses and loved by all who knew him. He never forgot the hospitable ways of the pioneer. The stranger, even though a beggar, never failed to find shelter if he sought it at his hands. He truly believed in the brotherhood of man. and proved this In his attentions to the sick and in neighborly offices He bore ad versity bravely and enjoyed prosi>erity quietly. He filled the various relations of life, ns son, husband, father, brother, friend and filled them well. Who can do more? But he is gone! Another from the ever-decreasing number of our old set tlers is taken from us. A wife in the sunset of life, and children, brothers and sisters are left to mourn his death. Yet in such a death there is really no cause for grief. His life work was done and well done and wearied with life's duties and cares, he lay down to rest. Funeral services will la1 conducted by Rev. W. R. Barham this afternoon at 4 o’clock, and interment at New Home graveyard. He is survived by his wife, six daugh ters. Mrs. R. B. Alma ml. Mrs. Ed. Pitt man, Mrs R. L.
