PUGILIST SHOOTS FRIEND
Young Fitzsimmons Fires at Quail and
Hounds Hunting Companion.
Hot Springs, Ark., Oct. 20.—Excite
ment caused by a covey of quail mak
ing a hurried flight from under his
legs was too much for Charlie
(“Young”) Fitzsimmons, well known
middleweight, boxer of Oklahoma City,
here late this afternoon when he and
a group of companions were camped
about 12 miles in the mountains on a
squirrel hunt. Fitzsimmons fired his
gun and the load of squirrel shot
struck Mitt Howard of this city, one
of the party, in tlie hip.
An X-ray at the hospital where
Howard was taken tonight showed
that no bones were broken, but that a
very deep and painful wound was in
flicted. There were six young men in
the party and they were returning to
their camp at the time. Among them
was Eddy Barnsback, boxing promot
er, well known ip the South.

ENGLAND TO HOLD
GENERAL ELECTION
New Premier Announces Next Turn
in the Political Situation; New
Party May Arise.
London, Oct. 20.—In the still high
ly speculative political situation to
night only two facts stand out as
definite that there will he almost im
mediately a general election, and thai
parliamentary ratification of the Irish
constitution is safely assured.
Andrew Bonar Law', who will lead
the new government which will take
the place of that of David Lloy'd
George, tonight confirmed his inten
tion to advise King George immediate
ly to dissolve Pariament, and added
that this will give ample time to deal
writh the Irish legislation. He did
not indicate, however, whether the
present Parliament will reassemble ac
cording to schedule November 14 to
deal w'ith the Irish question, or wheth
er genereal elections will be held im
mediately and the Irish legislation left
to the new Parliament. Either plan
would be practicable, the only point
being that ratification of the Irish
treaty must be effected before De
cember 6. Whichever course is adopt
ed, Irish legislation is quite safe from
any attempt to frustrate an Irish set
tlement.
Mr. Lloyd George in a message sent
to William Corgrave, president of the
Dail Eireann, has removed any fear
of opposition from him in his new
position as leader of the opposition in
Parliament. The marquis of Salis
bury, on behalf of the ‘‘die hards” has
made a similar promise, so there is
no party in the House of Commons
likely to offer any hindrance to car
rying the Irish treaty into effect.
Possible Changes.
The retiring premier left today for
Leeds “with his sword in his- hand,”
as he asserted in a short address at
the St. Pancras station. Although he
delivered five addresses front the rear
if his car on the way to Leeds, he has
left until tomorrow’s speech in Leeds
any revelation of what his tactics will
be. There is intense curiousity every
where a.- to what the line of his per
oration will take—Where he has any
new domestic reforms or legislative
plan to propose as a new election bat
tle cry. There have been rumors that
he has some new plan for unemploy
ment insurance with a view to detach
ing the labor vote fromt the labor par
ty and bringing it into the fold of his
proposed' new center party.
The rebel Conservatives, who are
headed by Mr. Bonar Law, Sir George
Younger and Stanley Baldwin, who
brought about the fall of Mr. Lloyd
George, have contended that they are
trying to Ret back to the party sys
tem. Only the result of general elec
tions will show how far they have suc
ceeded. Up to the present the only
consequence of their tactics has been
adding of still another to the existing
party groups, thereby bringing the
British Parliament still nearer to the
group system of the European parlia
ments.
Mr. Lloyd George who, during the
war, split the Liberal party into two
sections, now has done the same thing
by the Unionist party. Thus, instead
of the two original parties there now
are four, with the Labor party making
I the fifth. There no longer will be an
! Irish party, which for so many years
j during the great home rule agitation
{was able to dominate the Westminister
j Parliament by throwing its 70 mem
bers to whichever side it chose. With
;the five separate parties it is clear,
that no single party can form a big
enough bloc to carry in a government
not aided by alliances. The whole of
j the electoral machinery and the funds
of the Conservative party belong to
the rebellious Younger section of that
group.
Mr. Lloyd George is credited with
intentions to create a center party.
This would necessitate the creation
of new party machinery and party
funds, for the former premier lias no
such funds or machinery at present at
hi®' disposal.
The government’s policy toward the
British debt to the United States will
remain unchanged, regardless of who
may be the next chancellor of the ex
chequer, it was emphasized today in
official circles. One thing certain is
that Sir Robert Horne, who was; chan
cellor of the exchequer in the Lloyd
George cabinet, will not head the Brit
ish mission to Washington to discuss
the war debt. He was scheduled to
sail about October 30, but it is gen
erally conceded that his successor will
not be able to leave by that time.

Ashdown High OverwheIm=
ed Vivian High Friday
The Ashdown High football team'
led by Coach Wilkerson defeated the
Vivian, La., high school squad at Vi
vian Friday afternoon by a score of
25 to 7. The team proved themselves
to be the same fighting bunch wheth
er on their own territory or on the
soil of another state. The News was
not able to get the full details of the
game further than that a touchdown
was made in each quarter. A game
has been scheduled with the Texar
kana Hy here Friday afternoon. Tex
arkana lost to the local team last
year, but a scrap is expected this
year, as no doubt Texarkana will
make a strong bid eo even the score.
Highway Engineer Says bans for
Maintenance Should Be Passed.
Little Rock, Oct. 22.—Legislation
providing for the maintenance of
roads after construction is badly need
ed, according to R. C. Limerick, state
highway engineer, who returned yes
terday from a 650-mile tour of south
west Arkansas. Mr. Limerick was
accompanied hy E. B. Shuman of the
local federal goods roads office.
Mr. Limerick said that the surfac
ed roads in the counties visited, How
ard, Sevier, Union and Ouachita, are
now in good condition, except for an
occasional broken place, but without
attention they will disintegrate rap
idly. The unsurfaced roads, Mr. Lim
erick said, are in universally bad con
dition.
Recent oil discoveries in Union and
Ouachita counties have caused a tre
mendous increase in traffic. The road
between El Dorado! and Smackover, 12
miles away, was one continuous pro
cession of trucks and mule teams
hauling supplies, said Mr. Limerick,
and congestion on the El Dorado
Camden road was so great that it
took the party four hours to drive the
22 miles over a fair road.

TARIFF DESTROYS MARKET
United State Cannot Sell Without Hiiy
ing, German Solon Says.
Berlin, Oct. 21.—The tariff of the
United States, coupled with the de
mand for payment of war loans,
threatens to drive Europe to destitu
tion. declared Herr Goihein, former
minister of finance and at present
Democratic leader in the Reichstag,
discussing the new tariff policy of the
United States today.
“If tl}e United States does not ac
cept European industrial products in
payment,” lie said, “she will lose Eu
rope as a buyer. Such goods as Eu
rope cannot dispense with will be ob
tained by other lands, which will take
the products oft' European industry in
exchange.
“Europe will emancipate herself
from America, even in cotton. The
United States must one day realize
there is an economic solidarity of the
peoples of all lands, which cannot
be encroached upon without paying the
penalty, and further, that a creditor
state cannot pursue a policy of isola
tion if it does not wish to make its
debtors incapable of making pay
ments.'*
Herr Gothein said that while the
new tariff law is better than the old
schedule, the advantage is largely il
lusory, on account of the elastic pro
visions empowering the president to
extend restrictions.

All Principal Streets at Texarkana
Tex.) S<k»is to He < wvered.
Texarkana, Oct. 21.—Work on the
principal residence streets not already
paved on the Texas side of the city
is progressing rapidly, and within the
next few weeks will be practically
completed, and then all the important
streets of that side wil l afford un
broken driveways for autoists and
others. Residence building is keep
ing up with the street building, and
many beautiful new homes recently
have been built or are notv in process
of construction. Paving work on the
Arkansas side has been at a standstill
for the last three years, because of
litigation between the improvement
districts an i the company which con
tracted to build the streets. The
Arkansas side began its street paving
before Texas started, but the work
was discontinued when about half
completed for the reason above given.
The trouble still is in the courts and
it is problematical when it will be
settled and the streets finished.
Meantime, the contrast between the
street conditions on the two sides of
the city attracts much attention and
causes much discussion.
