day again set foot on America.
V The war premier of France, who left
this' country more than half a cen-
'; tury ago as a young medical student,
returned In ripe old age, with many
years of stormy statesmanship be
hind him, to win for his countrymen
the sympathy of America. The Tiger

by the police department band, M.
Clemeneeau and the committee which
had gone down the bay to welcome
him, Btarted up Broadway lor his ofli

The aged statesman was carrying a

his motor trip up the great canyon.

Escorted to the grand salon by the
, captain of the Paris, the committee
was presented to M. Clemeneeau by
J. J. Jusserand, French ambassador to
the United States.
Robert Woods Bliss, assistant secre
tary of state, welcomed the former
premier to America in behalf of Presi
dent Harding and invited him to visit
the president at Washington. Clem
eneeau accepted, expressing his delight.
"Growing; Younger Every Day."
Complimented by the committee on
the healthy appearance he presented,
Mr. Clemeneeau replied lightly:
"I am growing younger every day.
In 50 years I think I'll be a baby."
Robert Condon, a member of the
national executive committee of the
American Legion, then welcomed the
former premier "as a man who more
than any other exemplifies the spirit
in which we carried on the war."
"You're the man I like to see. It's
the thoughta of your men that count."
Making ready to leave the Paris,
M. Clemeneeau called excitedly to his
valet, AFIiert, who was going up to the
dock with the baggasre, to be aure and
see that it was landed safely.
Led by Colonel E. M. House, a close
personal friend, the distinguished
Frenchman stepped gingerly aboard
the Manhattan to cross to the Ma
corn. At the moment Manhattan's
siren loosed three tremendous blasts.

who was chatting politics, to inquire
or the whcrealiout of the Statue of

"Ah, there's a government."
The Tiger seemed bewildered when
he saw ,. the army of newspaper re
porters, photographers and movie men,
more than 5 strong, which had come
down the harbor to greet him. He met
a broadside of questions with the
statement that he waa prepared to re
spond with a certain number c yessea
and equal number, of noes which the
reporters could distribute in tfieir copy
as they saw fit.
Confetti and ticker tape rained on
the Tiger as he moved up Broadway.
At city hall, which he said he well re
membered, he was received by Mayor
Murray Hulbert, who bailed him as
"the most distinguished citizen of the
great Bister republic, France. '
George W. Wiekersham, introduced
the tiger as one of the greatest 'citi
zens in the world.!
M. Clemeneeau, responding to , the
welcome, said: i
"For 50 years I have been mixed up
with the most important political
crises in France. I have seen my coun
try invaded twice during my lifetime.
I do not want -to see a third invasion
before my ilfath.
We will disperse our army wherrnt
can be shown that we are Bafe from
this invasion." '
He explained that he came on no
mission and that his -v isit was person
al. At first, he said, he vowed he
would not come to America because he
was too old. But when he heard this
country criticized he decided to come,
"We were called militarist and impe
rialistic," he said, "If there's a man
who is not militaristic, it i I.
M. Clemeneeau said that he read
while in France an article by a great
English critic criticizing France and
America anddeelared that this made

He said that France did not know,
what was going on in ' America and
America did not know what waa going
on in France and he wished to make
the position of France clear, "as a free
man, speaking to free men."

ITALIAN PREMIER GETS
VOTE OF CONFIDENCE

But Only After a Stormy Session of
Italian Parliament, in Which He
Showed Contempt of Op
ponent. Rome, Nov, 18 (By the Associated
Press). Benito Mussolini starts his
career a Italian premier backed b$ a
strong vote of confidence from parlia
ment. - '.
The Fascisti government was up
held, 306 to 116, after a stormy ses
sion of the chamber yesterday in which
the socialists and other minority
groups broke their sullen silence and
hurled defiance and invective at the
government bench, only to be dis
missed by Mussolini! with contemptu
ous remarks and waves of the hand.
He had demanded obedience from the
leputies, and the majority bowed to
To a protest over the manner in which
he had approached the chamber for its
support, he replied curtly, "I treated
the chamber the way it deserved to be
Despite the vole of vonfidence
many of the deputies went home feel-'
ing none too sure that the premier
would 'not dissolve the chamber. So-
ialists who voted against the govern
ment were heard to axk: "How long
is he going to stand for tin servitude
of those men who would have -had him
shot a month aiot" -
Others, however, feel, that bv hold

of his hand and flourishing the weap

solini can rule much more easily than
with a Parliament having a solid Fas
It u pointed nut that the authority
to dissolve Parliament granted Musso
lini by the king applies to the present
body alone, and that he would prob
ably not receive similar power with
out a new chamber, as the king, like
his predecessors, is jealous of thia roy
al prerogative, which is only granted
as a last resource.
In any case it is regarded aa eer-1
tain that Mussolini will take no deci

In the Internal Affairs of
Turkey By Aiding
They Are Now Striving to
Prevent Escape of
Constantinople, Nov. 18 (By the As
sociated Press). The Turkish nation
alists consider that Sultan Mohammed
VI by hi flight has surr-mdered the
caliphate, according to Rafet Pasha,
Kemalist governor of Constantinople.
"According to the Moslem law," he
told the Associated 1'ress, "when the
sultan leaves Turkish soil and enters
Christian territory he wJaees himwlf
under Christian protection and thereby
loses the caliphate, ceasing to rewiin
any authority over the .Moslems.
Mohammed's departure on the iirlt
ish dreadnought Malaya in the face of
threatened trial for treason by the An
gora government waa compared by
Rafet Pasha to the flight of Damad
Fcrid Pasha, former grand visier, and
the other "members of the opposition
whv bv their acts were compromised in
the eyes of the whole Turkieh nation."
"Great Britain's connivance in the
eneane." he added, "is flagrant inter
fcreuce in Turkey's internal affairs."
Rafet was much agitated. He spent
several hours following the escape in
frantically telephoning Angora lor m
structions and taking precautions
against the flight of the members of
the sultan a cabinet and other High
wrsonaires wanted by the nationalist
The British for some time had been
aware of his anxiety and fear for his
personal safety and were prepared to
remove him when nav nam tno worn.
They explained however, that the re
quest for safe conduct must come from
him, as they could not be placed in the
false position of having kidnapped him.
They also pointed out that he must
go a reasonable distance from the pal
ace, aa it was inexpedient to introduce
British guards into the grounds be
cause of the danger of conflict with the
Kemalist soldiery there. The sultan
asTeed to all of the conditions.
The flight waa so carefully arranged
that the nationalist officers and sol
diers stationed in the palace grounds
did not learn of it until shortly before
the selamlik, or prayer ceremony, at
noon in which the sultan waa to have
participated. When the Associated
Press correspondent visited the palace
on Thursday the sultan made known
through a member of his court his in
tention to retain hia throne.
The -sultan repeatedly told hit
friends that he would not abdicate, and
after hi reception of Rafet Pasha last
week he seemed more, steadfast than
ever in his determination to resist the
efforts of the Kemalist to oust him.
Later, it is said, his closest triend
learned that threats had been made
against his life, and prevailed upon him
to reconsider his decision not to quit
The Kcmalists to-day took measures
to guard the famous palace contair.n'j
the precious relics of the caliphate and
the priceless gifts to the sultan and his
predecessors from world monarch
ainee the time of the prophet.
On. all sides the pressing question
to-day was as to what action the An
gora government would take aa the re
sult of the sultan's flight.
Extremist Turks said the ut"fltion
rreated might lead to the withdrawal
of the nationalist delegation from the
Lausanne conference and the inarch of
a Kemalist army upon the carntnl.
More temperate Moslems evprrssrd
belief that the nationalist authorities
would regard the flight as an unpleas
ant and irritating incident, but one
which none the less afforded a solution
of the question of the sultan's fate.
All were emphatic in voieine belief
that the British participation in the
escape of the caliph would provoke se
vere protests from the national assem
bly as constituting an unwarranted in
terference with Turkish, internal af
fairs. MAINE TEAM WON.

it to darn socks.
Comparison of the finger prmts of
Hibbard, and the marks on the blood
stained handle of the axe used to kill
the Davises is still awaited as a defi
nite means of determining connection
between the two.
Several resident of the town told
the police that Hibbard in the few days
