TELLER ONLY ONE
IN THE BANK AT TIME
Miss Loretta St. George,
Assistant Cashier, Came
as Men Were Rushing
Out of the Bank With
Their Loot A Bank
Customer Was Also Approaching.
Central Falls, R. I., July 26. Five
men in an automobile drove up to
Credit Union bank immediately after it
opened its doors for business to-day
and four of them, armed with re
volvers, entered and bound the teller
end then took from a wife $12,000,
which they carried to the waiting au
, tomobile and drove away.
There were no other officials or cu
tomers in tho bank, which does most of
its bir-incss with Notre Dame parish
ioners. Following the usual custom,
most of the deposits received on Sat
urday were, sent to a Tawtutiket bank.
Omer Collette, .the cashier, said that
when the four men entered the bank
one of them asked for $10 in change.
When he got it from the safe they told
him to hold up his hands and presented
their revolvers. They bound him to
a chair and Ragged him. They then
secured the money which wa made up
of $10,000 in currency, $400 in Liberty
bond and $278 in bills and silver, the
collection taken at Notre Dame church
yesterday, and the remainder in
checks.
While the men were busy in the bank
Miss Loretta St. George, the assistant
cashier, arrived and on finding the door
locked, went to a side window and
found the curtain drawn She returned
to the front entrance in time to see
the four men rush from the building
and drive away in the automobile. She
afterwards released the cashier.
Antoine Brunelle, on his way to the
bank on business, saw the men rush
from the building and drive off. He
gave chase but without avail. The au
tomobile in which the bandits escaped
was a touring car, but the number at
tached to it wfts th'at of a roadster of
a different make, accoring to the Rhode
Island registration.
TURKISH TREATY WILL
BE SIGNED AT SEVRES
Place Chosen After Much Discussion
It Lies Four Miles Northwest
of Versailles. v
Paris, July 26. Sevres, four -miles
northwest of Versailles, was chosen for
the signing of the Turkish peace
treaty, after a long search for a place
which would jgive the treaty a suffi
ciently dignified and historical name,
there being already treaties named
Versailles, St. Germain, Paris, Grand
Trianon and Fontainebleau. There re
mained La Malmaison and the presi
dential Summer residence at Rambouil
let. Fontainebleau was considered for
a time, but it had been overlooked that
there already was a treaty of Fontaine
bleau, which fixed the status of Na
poleon and his family after his abdica
tioiy. The choice finally was reduced to La
Malmaison and Rambouillet, both of
which were discarded in favor of Sev
res, which is more accessible to Paris.
Signing of the treaty, it i under
stood, will actually take place in a
magnificent building of the famous
national porcelain manufactory.

Russian soviet government for a con

rrported in last night's dispatches, will

l-elvyeen Frame and Great Britain.
As viewed btf the soviet govern

an armistice with Poland as a pretext
for a return to the original soviet cam
paign for official recognition of the
Mowit government and political cir
cle in Paris regard the manuvers as a
skillful one which placed some "hi the
allies, particularly Frame, in a deli
rate position.
France has not ceased to consider the
soviet government as an irregular one
not supported by the free will of the
people, and -on.c-uently it has resist
ed all action with reference to Rus
sia that might even remotely be con
sidered as recognit ton.
It is pointed out that Premier Lloyd
George spoke for all the allies, how
ever, when lie ci-m-niini-atd with the
wovict authori ie demanding that they
stop the forward mvom-nt on the
Polish frontier and asking them to ar

London, July 26. Premier- Lloyd
George in the House of Commons to

sian soviet government had sent the
British government a note, accepting
Great Britain's proposal for a peace
conference in London between the so
viet and the powers engaged in hos

TURKISH RATIFICATION
Must Be Made by the Chamber of
Deputies, Under Constitution.
Constantinople, July 24 (By the A.
P.) Since the departure of Turkey's
peace delegates for Faris with instruc
tions to sign the treaty, the means of
ratification have been eagerly dis
cussed in Constantinople. Under the
Turkish constitution the chamber of
deputies must ratify treaties. That is
impossible under the present circum
stances as a majority of the chamber
is composed of nationalists, many of
whom are in Ancrora. There is no
"pal way for the Sultan to convene
another chamber.

SELECT FAIR GROUNDS
FOR COXJSOTIFICATION
Because of Great Crowds Which Are
Expected to Attend On Aug
ust Seventh.
Dayton, O., July 26. Rough draft
ing of his actress accepting the Demo
cratic party's nomination for president
waa the immediate task to day of Gov
ernor Cox, following completion of maj
or plans for the notification ceremonies
August seventh. These, it has been de
cided, will be at Montgomery county
fair grounds in this city, instead of at
Trails End, the governor's home, in or
der to accommodate crowds expected.
Although Governor Cox had many
important features of his address out
lined mentally, he had on his dek to
day formidable piles of data, including
many volunteer suggestions, to digest.
He planned to lock himself iu hi li
brary and, if possible, send his addres
to the printer by neVt Friday, when
Dayton's "home coming" amenities
will be tendered him. A non-partisan
civic demonstration is planned as a
personal tribute. t
The only interruption expected by
the governor in the work on hi ad
dress was a conference to day or to
morrow, with Senator Fomeren o f
Ohio, a member of the Senate political
expenditures investigating committee,
regarding continuance of its inquiry.
The governor yesterday saw .lame W.
Gerard of New York, former ambassa
dor to Germany, who promised to cam-.
paign vigorously and told the governor
that the west was a particularly favor
able field.

Sandy Hook, N. J., July 26. Sham
rock IV, the big green sloop with which
Sir Thomas Lipton hopes to-day to lift
the America2 cup, sped first across the
line'to-day at the start of the fifth in
ternational yacht race, which will de
cide the 1920 series.
Starting on the first 15-mile leg of
her 30-mile course, a run south by west
half west out to sea, Shamrock passed
over the starting line at the Ambrose
channel lightship at 12:30:20, official
time, and her rival followed at 12:31:-
, after the starting signal had been
sounded at 12:30.
Shamrock and Iter rival broke out
big reaching jibs and set their spin
naker booms to starboard.
Shamrock hauled on his wind and
headed to the westward in an effort to
get by Resolute, which was to weather
and killing the Englishman's wind.
Once clear skipper Burton evidently
planned to wear ship and lay his course
for the mark. Resolute, however, clung
close to Shamrock, which lost ground
ly the maneuvers. At 12:37 the two
skippers still were fighting their tight
little battle off the course. Finally the
Englishman headed away slowly for
the mark, then hauled his wind ngain
and stood inshore. The match still con
tinued and the skippers got far off
their course, each fighting to gain the
advantage of position in the run down
before the wind. They seemed to main
tain about an even sailing speed.
At 12:45 the sloops ere moving
very slowly, with Shamrock still out
ahead. She had failed, however, to
gain on Resolute since the start. The
yachts were nearly two miles to the
westward of the course.
Neither skipper cared to give way
snd both held on their course inshore.
After the sloops had clung together
a if locked, the Englishman at 12:52
began to swing on bis course with the
American still to weather preparing to
kill hi wind once he got on his true
course for the mark boat. Apparently
Captain Bt-rton could not get clear
with Shamrock and he resumed the
lufling match in a fight for the wind,
which was so puffy that it was hard
to see how the racers could finish with
in the six -hour time limit.
At 1:25 o'clock p. m., when the
yachts had passed Scotland lightship,
the dark outline of a new wind could
be seen to the southwest, far down the
Jersey roat. Shamrock had increased
her lead slightly, but both yachts wete
moving very slowly.
In order to gain every slight ad
vantage Shamrock's crew sat along the
lee rail with their legs hanging over
board, in order that the big racer
might get closer to her best sailing
line.
At 1:32 o'clock the race was little
more than a drifting. Shamrock had
ghosted out about three minute ahead
of Resolute, but, in point of position,
it was doubtful M she was any closer
the outer mark.
At 1:35 o'clock the yachts were
nearly five miles off their course and
within three miles of the beach.
At 1:41 o'clock they finally jibed over
and stood along on a southerly course.
Shamrock we clear of any wind inter
ference by Resolute.
At 1 :" Resolute passed Shamrock
on the way to the outer mark and was
holding a better breete.
A UTOMOBILE SMASHED;
OCCUPANTS INJURED
Bolton Man's Car Was Run Into By
Car Carrying Canadian People
Between Richmond and
, Jones ville.
' A party of pleasure seekers, bound
for their homes in Canada at a rapid
clip, rounded a bad curve between
Jonesvilie and Richmond yesterday
without slowing down appreciably, and
collided with a Reo coming up the lull
The result was that the Reo, 17,797, be
longing to William D. Agan of Bolton,
is about a complete wreck, and its oc
cupants were in but slightly better
condition. The Hudson, Quebec, 3,208,
had its front axle broken so that fur
ther running waa impossible 'for the
time being, and the upper section of
tne windshield was smashed. Other
wise there were no visible signs of
damage. Only one occupant in that
car suffered more than a shaking tip.
The Reo, driven by Mr. Agan, wss
returning from Richmond, where the
occupants had been attending church,
and had just turned out to allow a
small Buick to pass, when the Hudson
shot around the outside of the curve,
struck the Reo on the front left corner,
and jammed it back into the bank in
less than a moment's time. Mrs. Agan,
who was riding beside her husband,
was severely cut about the face, her
whole upper lip having been laid open
to the bone from a piece of the brok
en w indshield, and her checks and fore
head weTe also severely gashed. Mrs.
Corvin had her chin laid open in the
same manner, and suffered other cuts
and bruises about the head. The other
occupants of the car were Mrs. May,
Mrs. Marquette, the mother of Mrs.
Agan, and a small girl. Mrs. Marquette
and Mrs. May suffered bruises about
their knee?, as well as their heads,
having been shot forward into the
back of the front seat from the force
of the collision.
That the entire accident was more or
lets of a joke to the Canadians was
shown by their jests and light-hearted-
ness, after the accident had occurred.
Though they had two doctors with
them, one in the Hudson, and one in
a large Winton six, Quebec, 9,192, be
longing to the tame party and follow
ing close behind the other car, no move
was made to relieve the suffering of
the injured women in the Reo.
Mrs. Agan and Mrs. Cm in were
taken to the Fanny Allen hospital in
Burlington by Dr. G. H. Newton of Wa
terbury, who passed a few minutes
after tjie accident had happened. The
other party piled into the Winton and
proceeded to Burlington, leaving the
wrecked Hudson in the care of the
chauffeur, to be towed to Burlington
for repairs. The Reo was eventually
towed to Bollon.
Some idea of the speed with which
the Hudson car was going may be ob
tained when it is considered that the
Reo was in a worse condition, after the
sma-hup than the Dodge, which was
struck by an engine on the crossing
halfway between Barre and Mont pel
icr" about four weeks ago. The party
in the Hudson refused to give their
names.
The Canadian car is said to have
been owned by L, Z. Legevin of Montreal.

BLAMES GLARE LIGHTS.
For Automobile Collision on Barre
Montpelier Road.
A Buick runabout driven by Robert
Jones of Montpclier and- an Overland
car driven by H. B. Hood of Hardwick
collided Saturday night about 9 o'clock
at Jerue's crossing on the Montpelier
Barre road, with the result that the
Overland will be disabled for a few
days. The steering gear of this machine
suffered the heaviest damage, though
the fender, as that of the Jones car,
was slightly damaged. Mr. Hood de
clared, it is said, that the car in front
of the Jones auto had glaring lights,
causing him to be unable to see for a
few seconds bis exact location on the
road. On a straight thoroughfare the
accident would undoubtedly have been
averted despite these circumstances,
but such was not possible on the turn,
where the accident happened. No one
was injured and only comparatively
small damage was done to both cars.

continue the trip to Montpelier.

ADRIANOPLE FALLS
When Ale Blair, the Driver, Went
Too Near Edge of Road.
Five people were in a Studebaker
touring car which turned turtle down
a 20-foot embankment on the Mont
pelier and East Montpelier highway
just below electric plant No. 5, yester
day morning, but all miraculously es
caped with only a few scratches apd a.
good scare. They were Mr. and Mr-.
Alex. Blair of Newton street, owners
of the car, and three jounger people,
Irene and Russell Blair, and Miss
Laura Susena, also of Newton-street.
Mr. and Mrs. Blair had just passed
another car and drove too near tne
edge of the road, where he plannAl to
leave the car and with the rest of the
party enter the woods nearby in tearcli
of raspberries. The steep embankment
was hidden by grass and hushes, the
driver little realizing such a steep drop
endangered his car and passengers.
When the car halted at the bottom of
this bank it was on onevside, the mud
guards and running board naturally be
ja mined and distorted somewhat when
it settled thus. Besides this, the auto
top was badly broken and the wind
shield completely destroyed, and a rear
wheel wils minus six spokes as a re
sult of the sudden descent.
Ernest Gregoire of this city hap
pened to be the driver of the pns-n.g
Ford truck, so he gave immediate as
sistance to the party. The car was
pulled back to the road, where exami
nation divuiged the fact that the run
ning power was in no way hampered
and from all appearances in condition
to resume a journey. The party how -
ever, had reached their destination as
far as the car was concerned, and con
tinued into the lierry field regardless of
their experiences. Later they returned
to Barre in the same car.
