Iv-c. 30 A birthail tvn.nz i planned fT IVc 27. aitfa m Iocs! - in- i three -. Dublin, Dec. 14 (By the Associated Press). The question of ratification or rejection of the Anglo-Irish agree ment by the Dail Eireann has been postponed until Thursday when a pub lic session will be held and the dep uties will debate the matter and come to a decision. This was decided upon at to-diiy's meeting of the Dail, called to consider the agreement. Meanwhile the Dail in secret session was this afternoon discussing the dis pute between the delegates to the Lon don conference, and Kamonn De Val era, the republican president, as to whether the delegate had the power to conclude the agreement. President De Valera, who opened the morning proceedings, explained at some ength the circumstances under which the-plenipotentiaries of the Dail had been appointed. On Oct. 7, he said, the plenipotentiaries had received Inst rue ions, the most important ot w;iien was that the complete text of the treaty whotild be submitted to Dublin and a reply awaited. That, he said, had not been dune. It was always under stood also, he declared, that ratifica- ion by the Dail was essential. Mr. De Valera invited a question with regard to the conduct of the ne gotiations. He said tfle question mut be considered on its merits and should not be influenced by the mere accident of a difference I opununJn the cftbi- net or any other' extraneous matters. .Reviewing the circumstances leading up to appointment of the plenipoten tiaries, Mr. De Valera said he had made it clear at the meetine of the Dan that the plenipotentiaries should ave.full plenary powers but that hatever arrangement was reached ould lie submitted to the Dail for ratification. The cabinet, he declared, would not have sent any five men to neg'tiate a tieaty which would bind the nation without aome larger body representing the nation having an op portunity of criticizing and reviewing it. Mr. De Valera said his idea was that when the plenipotentiaries had arrived ai an agreement in principle and had a rough copy of the document they should have sent it to the cabinet. He said he was anxious that the difference of opinion should not interfere with the discussion of the treaty. It was a question of whether the delegates had failed to report to the cabinet before signing the agreement. Mr. De Valera insisted this was ah important point, but Mr. Griffith claimed it was not a material one, for while lie and his colleagues had power to sign an agreement they had not au thority to conclude one. The represen tatives of the Dail and of the British cabinet were in an identical position, he pointed out; as they had each to refer the treaty to their'respective leg islatures for ratification. This question was to form the sub ject for the secret session but it ap peared from remarks that were dropped that certain of the deputies' desired to learn something about the Sinn Fein's financial and military ability tu re sume warfare before casting their votes, and they asked for reimrts in' private on these points. Boston, Dec. 14. The election f mayor yesterday of James M. Curley who was defeated for re-election four years ago, was still, under discussion to-day as one of the greatest political upsets in the city' history.

She had known Glickstein, she sai l, most of her life. He was her family s doctor in the lower east side of Man hattan where she, Lillian Schaffer, and her parents, as well as Ghekstsin, lived.

Mrs. Raizen said she struggled in vain to break the hold the physician had on her life. A year ago she thought ehe had succeeded. The relationship, which she Raid had always been against her will, ended about a year ago and she thought she was free. Then on the eve of her marriage to Raizen, she said, Glickstein renewed his advances and attacked her in the office where on Saturday, with the memory of her injuries tormenting her, she ended his lift1. She escaped that time, she sail, went ahead with her trousseau and in May was married. On her honeymoon, she said, she confessed all to her hus band and he tried to console her. But to forget, she went on, was im possible. The shadowed past became a violent obsession that undermined her; health. Finally, on the advice of anoth er physician, she went to Florida, and in Jacksonville, still unable to Jl'id peace, she "bought a pistol. Then hoj came north, sought out the object cf her fears, and shot him through the heart. leaving the house in which Glick stein was dyirig, she took a train to Manhattan, called her father on the tel ephone, and told him what ' she had done. The recital ended, Mr. Raizen lcft the district attorney's office with two policemen, who took her to a police station, where she was booked on a homicide charge and . where she spent the night. Before the arraignment, Aaron W. Levy, one of the two attorneys who acompanied her to the prosecutor's office last night, indicated that the de fense would be based Upon the conten tion that she was mentally unbal anced. . ..The physician who ad vised the south- WAS DEMANDED CITY MAY OFFER WOOD CUT ON SHARES For Two Men Alleged to Have Smuggled Through" Vermont IN PARTY HALTED - AT BAKERSFIELD Capt.

By Which Judge Submitted Colby Case to Jury. Among the exceptions taken in the trial of tstate vs. Colby in Orange coun ty court last week and this week, the respondent beinir accused of criminal libel, was one of the charge of the juryJ The defense was made on the claim by the respondent that he had reason to believe ana dia nonestiy oencve uwt the charges made. in the circular in question were true and thus upon such honest belief it was his right to pub- is-h and circulate such belief among the voters of Orange county. This defense, it is claimed, wa or dered by the judge not to be considered by the- jury; and exception was taket on the ground that such instruction was in contravention of article 13 of .the constitution of the state of Ver mont which reads to the effect that the people have a right to freedom of speech and of writing and of publish ing their sentiments concerning the transaction of government and, there fore, the freedom of the press ouht not to be constrained. Many other ex ceptions were taken by the attorneys for the defense, on which the case will j go to supreme court following the ver dict of guilty. Forty-six carload of tuberculosis free cattle at an estimated value of at least $100,000 shipped from Barre within the past year. This tells tho story of bovine tuberculosis eradica tion and the desire among local cattle raiders for more and better cows for dairying. Compared to other year tho value of shipments this year shows a. tremendous increase for figures obtain able show that dairy cows to the value of $20,000, only, were sent from hero in a like period. - At the present time there are several thousand cows in this vicinity belong ing to accredited herds or to herds in the process of being accredited. It 1 because of this that dairymen in neigh boring states who have suffered losses n the testing of their herds are turn-- ing largely to Barre for federal and state accredited cows. The Central Vermont Cattle club has been instru mental in selling 12 carloads out of the 40 sine August at an estimated lue of $30,000. The club was organ ised for the purpose of raising more and better cows and bring buyer and seller together. In case of sales no commission is charged and the expense ia borne by the buyer. Jarmer are now beginning to realize . that they can get a good price for tint better class of stock and are turning their attention more and more to this side of agriculture. Not only are th farmers being benefited by these sales but the community as a whole for Barre is the trading center for people in the outlying districts. The great in crease in pales is encouraging in the face of general business depression and a short hay crop. The problem confronting the farm ers now is to raise more dairy cowi, for at the rate of sales the territory will soon be short of cows to supply local demands. With the assuram that they can get a worth-while price and that a ready market has been e- tablished the rattle raiser may b de pended upon to raise more and better cows for dairying.
