OFFENSIVE LAUNCHED ON RIVER DVINA Bolsheviki Have Apparently Started Their Threatened Drive on the Northern Front Toward Vilna. Warsaw, April 2 (By the Associated Proas). The bolsheviki launched at tacks yesterday on both sides of the river Dvina, apparently in the begin ning of their threatened drive on the northern front designed to carry them in the direction of Vilna. Fighting at various points on this front is re ported in the Lettish communique to day. One of the Lettish statements announces the repulse of n bolshevik attack in the region of Lake Osvia. The fighting is reported particularly severe in the vicnity of Pedino, along the northern banks of the Dvina. Between Polock and Borizov on the Beresina, the Polish communique an nounced a heavy attack by the Reds. The Poles counter-attacked, .driving the Reds eastwardly. The newspapers also reportr a Pol ish success on the southern front in Podolia, announcing the capture of Bax, northeast of Kamenelz-PodoUk by the Poles. Uneasiness in Finland over the bol shevik successes in the far north, is reported by the press. (This probably refers to the recently reported bolshe vik advance in the 'Murmansk region between the White sea and the Arc tic). The newspapers declare Finland is already considering military suction against the reds to prevent a bolshe vik invasion. NO MOTIVE FOR SUSPICION. Over the Note by United States to Chile, Bolivia and Peru. Buenos Aires, April 2. Recent Amer ican notes to Chile, Bolivia and Peru are described as ' the fruit of diplomat ic inexperience" by La Prenr.a, which declares they "do not reveal any po litical plan that should alarm the Sonth'Anierican continent or give Ar gentina any motive for suspicion." In its first editorial on the hubject, the newspaper asked whether the notes, "which affect the sovereignty of those states, respond to a resolved policy ac cording to which the Uuited States con stitutes itself the inherent protector of new world republics" and "what should be the attitude of Argentina." These questions are answered to-day, the Journal stating it has a "profound knowledge of the functioning of the American state department" and as serting that the department "never cul tivated a diplomatic mode of procedure and does not possess a diplomacy." It declares the department is "an organ of internal politics rather than inter national" and that the secretary's tenure of office is unstable, due to Andrew Jackson's policy of "to the victor be longs the spoils." "The,re docs not eist in Washing ton a mode of conducting traditional diplomacy, nor scarcely a chancellory," continues La Prenza. "For this reason the United States frequently assumes attitudes incomprehensible toother na tions In attempting to apply party judgments and local politics to interna tional life. Men of the United States have generally written on delicate and susceptible international questions with the erudeiie with which they treat internal politics. These ante cedents induco to think the form f notes in question does not respond to a political plap of a continental pro tectorate which is contemptuous in re gard to lesser republics. They arc an instance of inadvertence and lack of diplomatic tact.'' A-serlion is made there is "no lack of politicians and others in the United States who think such a protectorate is a natural fa-t, derived from the greatness of their country"' and Pre-i-dent Wilson's Mobil address as a "man ifestation in good faith, of this com mon liolief in the United State." It is said this speech and former Secretary of State Bryan's proposal that the United State acquire title to South American nations' debts in F.urope and "thus tree them from slavery to F.u ropean markets" were "attitudes de rived from diplomatic inexperience." It is admitted they may have been found ed on "the equivocal conduct of some South American rulers and tatemcn, who alme the freqmnt manifestations of sympathy from the United S:a!es and'iti an "international conflict run to demand support.

R. Bridge Near Alburg FOUR MEN JUMPED, ONE OTHER RESCUED Train Was Moving Slowly, or There Might .Have Been Deaths Burlington, April 3. The engine of freight train No. 33 of the Rutland railroad, plunged through the trcttle bridge between Alburg and Rouses Point into the waters of Lake .Chajn plain at 11:15 last night, when the bridge gave way under the strain. No one was injured. There were five men in the engine at the time of the accident, the fire man, engineer and three railroad men. The fireman and other railroad men jumped but the engineer .went down with the engine' and miraculously es caped injury and proba-ble death. How ever, he managed to crawl from the cab and emerge from the waters un injured. The fact that the engine was going at the rate of but five miles per hour is what saved all from death. The bridge has been quite weak for mime time and trains passing over it have used every precaution. The high wa ters and ice are the cause of the weak ened condition of the bridge and when train 33 approached the bridge last night it slowed down. As tho train went onto the bridge the latter snapped under the strain and the engine plunged into the lake and completely out of sight. The men had time to jump and because the train was going so slow at the time, were not injured. CLAIMS IT A FORGERY. That His Name Was Signed to Proc lamation of New Government ' Paris, April 3. Francisco de la Barra, former provisional president of Mexico, to-day denied knowledge of the proclamation issued on Friday at Agua Priota, Mexico, announcing the establishment of a new united govern ment in thnt county. When informed by the Associated Pres the proclamation was reported to have been signed by him, he said: "If such a document exists it is a forgery. I have the greatest esteem for Emilio Rehasa (name in the proc lamation as secretary of foreign rela t;ons in the new government), but am entirnly unaware of any such move ment as reported."

HANLEY CASE In Nil I P K I Inn H 1 1 10 lWJU 1 UU00Ijlj Former State Purchasing Agent Will Not Be Prosecuted" INDICTED ON CHARGE OF TAKING $1,200 Attorney - General Archi bald Made Request That thte Case Be Dropped The case of State vs. Dewey T. Han ley, formerly state purchasing agent, was nol prossed in Washington county court this morning by the, state's offi cers. Mr. Hanley was indicted by tho grand jury two vears ago on 1H counts of larceny and 1ft counts of embezzle ment, these being duplicate counts in which it was alleged that Mr. Hanley took state funds amounting to about $1,200. The case has been on the dock et since that time.- In explaining the request for the nol nros. Attorney General Archibald aaid: "If the court please, there is on the j docket the case ot State vs. JJewey i. Hanley. Now it Is with no desire to avoid the discharge of every duty that the fctato casts upon prosecuting ofli rers, that the state's attorney and my self at this time ask that nol pros be entered in that case. "I will, state here that I have giveu the case a lengthy and as careful con sideration of all "the Evidence that I can find, and all that has been sug gested to me, having before me the transcript of the testimony upon which the indictment was based, and I believe that it is only just to the state of Vermont and to the respondent, whose rights I am just as much obligated to look' after as I am the state, to say that justice require ' that we do not put the state of Vermont or the re spondent either to the expense of trial in that case, and I therefore move that it be nol prossed, and I understand that Mr. Davis concurs with me in that view." The court said: "Mr. Clerk, in No. 88, State vs. Dewey T. Hanley, you may enter a nol pros at this time."' HOOVER REQUESTS ONLY ONE NOMINATION Issued Statement To-day Asking Oth ers Not to Suggest That Hi Name Be Placed in Primaries. New York, April 3. Herbert Hoover, who has announced he is ready to ac cept the Republican presidential nomi nation if it is demanded of him, issued a statement to-day in which he re quested he be not further embarrass-zd by suggeslons of some independents that his name be placed before any other party, as "a primary sense of team work in any party organization would preclude such possibility." Mr. Hoover said he had no great rec ord of partisan activity and "admit ted" that his political activity was confined to membership in a prominent club and allegiance to the party over a period of years. He added that be cause of his profession of a mining en gineer, continual shift of residence had prevented him from exercising as much as he desired I t he privilege of every citizen at the polls. Asserting that h'.t administrative duties in . various relief organizations would prevent him from making a per sonal canva for the nomination, Mr. Hoover said he expected Hoover orgun i.iitions throughout the country would have to expend certain amounts for printing and other expenses, but thst he hoped they would confine themselves to minor subscriptions and experkli turcs and would be prepared to open their books to public inspection." Mr. Hoover requested that men and women advocating his nomination "bear in mind that personal criticism of the other names before the party is chiefly of service to the opposition." "All these men," he said, "are pa triotic, honorable Americans. They have all served the country well and are entitled to respect." Because he had refused to allow his name put into the primaries. Mr. Hoot er declared that there was "little or eanization" on his behalf and. at this late date no organization i possible I that could compete with tdiier organ izations. He urged that his supporters confine their energies to "promotion of their views to the country and the dele gates already named, with full re?pect to their prior pledges." Mr. Hoover said that he had no ex pectation that his entrance into the presidential race would be welcomed by tre "type of person who eonceisos that fitnc' for office, patriotism and citizen ship, depend upon placing sheer par tisanship above national interest or who require year of demonstrated participation in work wilh mechanical poiit icians." "I cannot ist the people with explanation try in? to prove that 1 be-lot-2 to their cUa," be added.

In the List to Be Voted For on Monday. Detroit, Mich., April 3. the prefer ence of Michigan Republicans and Dem ocrats for presidential nominees will be registered next Monday in the state's second presidential preference primary. Republicans have a field of seven to choose from, while the Democrats have entered five in the lists. Two of the latter, William J. Bryan and William G. McAdoo, made unsuccessful efforts to have their names removed from the ballots. Withdrawal after certification, however, is not permitted under the state election laws, and the two names remained on the ballots. An unusual situation results from the fact that the name of Herbert Hoover appears on both Rcpublfcan and Democratic tickets. The double fil ing for the former food administrator was made possible when the state's attorney-general rule inoperative, as ap plied to the presidential primary, the amendment passed by the last legis lature requiring from candidates an af fidavit of party alliliation. The Republican ticket comprises Sen ators Poindcxter . of Washington and Johnson of California, General Persh ing, Major -General Leonard Wood, Gov ernor Lowden of Illinois, Mr. Hoover and William G. Simpson of Detroit. On the Democratic ticket besides Mr. Hoover, Mr. McAdoo and Mr. Bryan, are Governor Edward I. Edwards of New Jersey and Attorney-General Palmer. Eugene V. Debs 'of Indiana is the sde candidate on the Socialist ticket. How far the preference of the voters expressed in the primary will be re garded as binding upon the 30 dele gates Michigan will send to each na tional convention is a matter of specu lation. Xo provision Is mnde in the primary law binding the delegation to the primary expression; and the state's representatives at the convention may, if they so choose, swing their weight to another candidate after the first ballot is -cast. ' . Vigorous campaigns conducted by several of the leading candidates and the fact that in many cities aud town ships important local issues are to come up at the same time is expected to bring out a large vote this year. Bonding issues are to be balloted upon in many communities. That 'a heavy vote will be brought out in Detroit is regarded as a fore gone conclusion. Here a street railway bonding proposition is expeefed to over s' Hidow interest in the presidential pri mary. The proposal is to bond the city for l.i,fi00,(KK) with which to etabljsh a municipally owned traction system to compete with the present Detroit United railway. A hot campaign has been made on this proposition, Mayor James Couens, its sponsor, personally speaking at a score of meetings, and the editorial columns of the newspa pers msking strong arguments on the issue.

MORSE SAW HER SON SLAIN Middlesex Woman Testified in Case Charging Geo. 0. s Hale With Murder -' SHE SAID SOMETHING TO HALE AFTERWARD What She Said Was Not Admitted in Court State Rests Following the testimony by Mrs. Lucy S. Morse, mother of the alain man, that she saw the shooting of S. Lester Morse near her home in Middle sex on Feb. 1, the state rested to-day In Washington county court after hay ing occupied a portion of the week in presenting evidence against George 0. Hale, a prominent Middlesex man, who was charged with the murder. Besides seeing the shooting, Mrs. Morse testi fied that she said something to Hale as he was driving away from the place after the tragedy, but the statement was not admitted in court. Charles C. Corry of Middlesex was another wit ness on the stand this forenoon. Charles C. Corry, selectman of Mid dlesex, was the first witness this morn ing. He was called to the Monroe house by telephone by Hale. He told the names of those at the house, in cluding the Monroe boys and Hale. Hale told the witness Morse was shot Hale wss near the wire alon? the wood road. Witness saw the body of Morse. There was no one there : Ant time. He saw Mrs. Morse on hci ,.;iy to the house. lie felt of the body. lie saw the pitchfork near the body and de scribed the position of Morse's hands and the fork under Morse's body. A part of the fork projected beyond the head. He covered Morse's body with blankets. Selectman Corry remained there until others came, including the officers. On cross examination Mr. Corry laid down on the floor placing the fork and his body in the position as near as he remembered that he found Morse and the fork, with the fork bottom side up. He then testified he went immediately to the Monroe farm after receipt of the telephone call and arrived at the Monroe house about 2 o'clock. He saw a place where a double and single teams had turned out of the wood road. He testified like others relative to the barbed wire fence, a true and post, to which the barbed w-ire was at tached. He saw some "old" tracks around in the ,iow near the sugar house and near the wire fence. From a picture the witness showed to the jury the track bet ween the body and Morse's house which were tracks he saw that Sunday. In going after the blankets he followed a path and on the way saw a wire barway that wits pulled" liack, probably two-thirdi of the wav swung around. He did not have to climb over the wire anywhere on the way to the Morse house. The opening referred to as a "barway"' was first, mentioned as such at this time. This testimony disagreed with some introduced through other state wit nesses, who claimed there was no "opening" through which they passed; but he agreed there was only one path or track, as he called it. The witness testified that it snowed sometime Sat urday. He could not tell whether it was in the nibt or not. Mr. Corry wis excused for a few minutes and l. T. Houston was called. Mr. Houston testified to making pho tosraph marked "H" in March and for Mr. Willcox. which was not at the same time that he took the pictures he testified about Friday. Both Mr. Arch ibald and Mr. Carver asked questions of the witness. Mr. Corry wa recalled, and could not tell whether the "opening'' was the same in exhibit "H" as it was Feb. 1. Kxhibit "H" was taken in March. In cross examination he testified the "opening'' whs correspondingly the same as Feb. 1, although it might vary a rod or so. Mother of SUin Maa Called. Mrs. l.ucy S.

She next saw him throw his arm tip and fall. he had nt seen Hale or anybody up ti the time of the shooting. She beard a shot at the time her son threw up hi arm. Mrs. Morse saw Hale drive down the wood road riding in a sleigh drawn by a single liore. She went in her son and saw something laving at his right. She only raised her son's head and ssw blood coming from mouth and noe. Hie put a cape otrr his shoulder and turned up the e.-at collar. Two yearn a boy came while she was there.
