THE "DOWN WITH THE JEWS"' "DOWN WITH THE REDS" German Students' Demonstration Vienna Continued with Great Violence Police Forces Were Stood Off for a Time. at Vienna, April 29. Anti-Jewish dem onstrations by German students con. tinned in a more serious form to-day and were also direct ed against other students recognized as socialists. Cries of "down "witth the Jews" mingled with "down "with the reds." Tho students of the university occu pied a position near one of the col leges, armed w-ith sticks and their lead ers carrying swords. Jews were vio lently attacked when they entered lec ture rooms,' and were compelled to leave. A Jewish war kitchen also was raided. During the disorder there were cries of "Long live the Hapsburgs" and the old national anthem was sung. Police forces were stood off for a time and were forced to draw their swords to disperse the students. The movement seems to be jointly anti-Jewish and political, the latter phase being a protest against the gov ernment's refusal to make any ad vances to Hungary. Charges are made that the demonstration here has been planned by anti-Jewish students in Budapest, while the Abendblatt says emissaries from the group surround ing Admiral Horthy, Hungarian re gent, are in the city. It is understood that the American commissioner here has directed inquiries to the govern, ment concerning the damage done to the war kitchen attacked to-day, it being conducted partly tinder Ameri can aimpiccs.. Student leaders declare they will con tinue their demonstrations with, in creased emphasis and the government is considering closing the University of Vienna unless the. situation improves.

OPPOSES. S0LDIER BONUS. United States Chamber of Commerce Took Action Last Night. Atlantic City. V.T., April 30. The Chamber of Commerce of the United States, at the closing session of its eighth annual convention here la night, went on record in favor of a "constructive Americanism." urged that a treaty of peace "should be placed in effect Vithmit further delay," and adopted a resolution opposing a cash bonus for soldiers, but favoring imme diate provision for disabled or sick soldiers or their dependents. The opposition to a cash bonus for soldiers originally had beevi drafted and approved by tlii resolution com mittee in more comprehensive form, calling attention to the alleged danger of certain classes of labor "abandon ing work if granted a cash bonus, thus disorganizing industry, causing fur ther increase in prices of necessities, and resulting in decreased production." Announcement that the resolution had been prepared caused Franklin DWier, commander of the American Legion, to request a hearing lieforc the committee. He conferred with the com mittee to.day, after which it was re ported the resolutions had Wen modi fied. Constructive Americanism, the res olution said, will nntribnte toward our present, progress. It emphasizes Amer ican ideals of liberty, representative government, enlightened rule of the majority and supremacy of the law. Of "government and business," it added, "it is essential that our gov ernment should scrupulously refrain from entering any of the fields of transportation communication, indii trv and commerce, or any phase of business when it can be successfully undertaken and conducted by private enterprise."

Bankers, edu cators and economists of the United States and Kurope discussed the facts and causes of inflation and high prices and their remedies, at the semi-annual meeting of the Academy of. Politi cal Science, which opened here today. Dr. B. M. Anderson, jr., of the Na tional Bank of Commerce in New York, speaking at the forenoon session, de clared that the shortage of goods and the attendant speculation is the prime cause of present high prices in this country. 'When our enormous export balance disappears and when our domestic mar kets are called upon to absorb three or four hundred million dollars' worth of goods per month, which they have not been absorbing, we shall see lower prices," he declared. Tho speaker said that increased pro duction had been expected when the five million men withdrew from in dustry for the army and navy, re turned, but that it had not come. "In 1010 we produced less by at least 10 per cent in physical units than in PUT," he declared.' "Coupled' with this decreased production, due to the pro longed strain on our industrial sys tem, came a great increase in our ex port balance of trade and a great in crease in domestic consumption, as our people relaxed from war-time economy and swung to the other extreme. The net result is greater shortages of good than at the end of the war." Dr. Anderson declared bank expan sion has been "more a passive result than an active cause of the rising prices." Kdwin H. Kemmerer. professor of economics and finance at Princeton uni versity, reviewed the two groups of causes for inflation the country has ex. pcrieuced, classifying- them as "non war causes and war causes." Two mistaken policies in American war financing are responsible for infla tion, according to Dr. Jacob H. Hol lander, professor of political economy, John Hopkins university. "The first," he said, "consisted in is suing bonds at artificially low inter est rates with the aid of cheap bor rowing facilities at the federal reserve banks, that bond buyers found if easier to obtain additional credit from the banks to pay their bonds rather than Use their saving or such bank deposit as they already had. "The second, and more important way in which the treasury contribu ted to inflation was by continued ad herence, even After the armistice, to its wartime practice of lrrowing front the bank by means of certificates of indebtedness. "Over and above it unwholesome effects upon the money market and upon the nation's finances, certificate borrowing aggravates! the problem f hifih price by checking or delaying an otherwise probable fall in prices or even contributing to a still higher price level. It did this by reason of the fact that, the certificate of indebted ness emitted by the treasury were tak en almost entirely by the bank for themselves and their customers, and in either event, were paid for by the banks almost entirelv bv credit."

Testimony given on the stand in the Crane divorce case being contested in Washington county ooiirt by Mr. Jackman, an overseas veteran, to the effect that he .was intoxicated last Sunday afternoon resulted in an inves tigation being conducted by State's Attorney Karl Davis. Jackman testi fied that he was unable to remember things that happened last Sunday and admitted that he was intoxicated. Judge Chase conducted a little ex amination from the bench and Jack man admitted he bought a quart of liquor from a man named "Mike" for nine dollars. He commenced drinking about noon and everything became a blank from that time until early in the evening. "It took me two days before 1 came entirely out of it,' claimed Jackman. Judge Chase called State's Atorney Davis' attention to the evidence and called upon him to make an investigation .and take such action as the evidence might warrant. Jackman testified to having written letters to Mrs. Crane while in France and Germany and claimed to have re ceived letters from her addressed "Dear Husband," "Sweetheart," etc. Henry Bowers, an inmate of the state hospital at Waterbury, worked on the Crane farm last summer and testified this morning to having seen Kenneth Rawlings and Mrs. Crane seated on a bed in her room at twelve o'clock one night.

Mrs. Crane took the stand again this morning and denied writing any per sonal letters to Jackman or having improper relations with any of the hired men, as previous evidence had tended to show.

H., Makes Progress Concord, X. H., April 30. Dr. George B. Magrath, pathologist, of Boston re turned to the witness stand in superior court to-day, upon the re-opening of the trial of Mrs. Marion Loynes Ot terson for the murder of her brother-in-law, Maurice Otterson. Dr. Magrath told of the autopsy performed by him upon the body of Maurice Otterson on November 30, and said the discoloration that had been noted over one eye was due to the fatal bullet, which had lodged there. The marks on the murdered man's neck, he said, resulted from the "application of pressure" proba bly by a human hand that had re peatedly grasped the neck. There were scratches that could have been made, by thumb and finger nails. On cross examination the witness expressed tho opinion that the scratches were made before death. Sheriff George A. Wooster of Mer rimack county told of his summons to' the Otterson home in Hooksclt after the murder and said Marion Otterson in his presence picked up from the floor a bit of cloth, which she said was the lining of a hat belonging to Mrs. John I.

He examined the sweater Marion said had been thrown over her head and it was damp to tho touch. He saw drops of water on tha A...... 1,a BWrniior liu ' luin ftt- rion called the sheriff's attention to a ransacked bureau drawer in the sit ting room used by herself and her husband and attributed the conditiou of the drawer to the bandit. Sheriff Wooster told of taking pos session of the revolver found in Mau rice Otterson's room and of his exam ination of it. The weapon did not smell of powder. Upon the arrival at the house of Howard Otterson, hus band of Marion, he told the officer of a second revolver in his own room. This weapon was also secured and was found to have five loaded shell in the car tridge chamber and one that had been fired. The witness said the gun was now in the same condition as 011 Nov. 0. In his testimony this week, Howard Otterson expressed the opinion that the revolver had been clean. 'd since the state look possession of it.
