Miss MacSwiney Goes to Parliament
With President
Dublin, Aug. 22. Dail Eireann (Sinn Fein Parliament) went
into secret executive session at noon today, after a delay of an
hour occasioned by a long private conference between Eamonn
De Valera and Michael Collins,
Irish Republican army.
It was reported that De Valera had.:
received a dispatch from some quar
ter, which made it necessary to con
fer at length with Colins. It was un
derstood that his letter had a bearing
upon Dail Eireann's peace delibera
tions and that it might hasten peace.
Dail Eireann was scheduled to con
vene at 11 o'clock, but it was 12
o'clock before De Valera arrived. He
drove up in a motor car accompanied
by Collins, Countess Markiewicz and
,Miss Mary MacSwiney, sister of the
late Lord Mayor of Cork, who has
lust returned from the United States.

Report
Issues Formal Denial of
Rumor That Secre
tary of Treasury Mel
lon Has Resigned.
Washington, Aug. 22. For
mal denial of reports that Sec
retary of the Treasury Mellon
has resigned was made by the
White Houso today.
"The President has not received
Secretary Mellon's resignation, nor
has he had any intimation that the
Secretary has any desire to resign,"
published reports to the contrary are
incorrect, Secretary to the President
George Christian, said.
Following defeat in his tax revision
program at the hands of Congress,
reports were circulated here that the
Secretary of the Treasury greatly dis
pleased. The White House denies
any knowledge of such an attitude
on the part of the Secretary.
At the office of the Secretary of the
Treasury, it was stated that the Secre
tary was in conference, but had not
Indicated that he had tendered his
resignation.
No Change In
His Parish
Says Priest
"It is an absolute untruth that 1
am to be transferred to any other
parish or that my parish is to un
dergo any changes, said Rev. Matthew
J. Traynor, pastor of St. Mary's
church when interviewed today by a
Times reporter.
The pniest emphatically denied all
reports made througn local publica
tions that he was to be transferred
to the new parish which will soon be
smarted in the West Bnd or that St.
Mary's parish, one of the- oldest in
Bridgeport, was soon to be turned
over to the foreign-speaking people
of the East Side.
"My parish is one of the finest In
the city and there is no reason for
any change. We are out of debt and
have much money in the bank. While
there are a number of foreign
speaking people in our church we still
have just as many American parish
ioners. "If the charge of the new parish
was offered to me I doubt very much
that I would accept," said Father
Traynor.
When asked what he thought was
the motive for the false rumor Father
Traynor said that he thought it was
done as a joke or through some per
son's unreliable presumption.
Many people have already doubted
the reports as the Bishop of the dio
cese seldom makes an appointment
until after all plans for the parish
have been completed and not gener
ally until after a church has been
started.
First Accident
On New Road;
No Fatalities
(Special to The Times.)
Redding, Aug. 22 David R. Hues
ted, a Yale sophomore and grandson
of the late Senator James W. Hues
ted, long prominent in New York
state politics, was the central figure
in a sensational auto smash which
occurred last Friday afternoon on the
Putnam Park section of the trunk
highway just ielow the Bethel-Redding
line. Driving a Buick car
Huested had as his companion John
Brooks, college classmate and grand
son of John G. Stetson, a Redding
summer resident and manager of the
New York firm of Arnold, Constable
I & Co. The pair had motored from

Huested became seized
with an impulse of speed mania which
caused him to mi up a pace of from
50 to 60 miles an hour. Just south
of the Bethel line he veered to avoid
a truck and in another second crash
ed against the car of Contractor
Frank Valerio. The latter was going
slowly and realizing that there was
no escape from the impending colli
sion, gave himself up for lost.
The violent impact caused both cars
t perform eccentric gyrations and
partially wrecked them, but strangely
enough none of their occupants was

the problem of finding about $40,000

pletion of the Congress street
bridge repair job. Where the money
will come from is a question that no
one has ventured to answer as yet.
In addition to this matter the deficit
of the Charities department may al
so be brought up for consideration,
and several minor transfers within
departments will be considered.

Denouncing the Republican party

day sounded the call to members of
his party to start on a victory drive
with the election next November as
the end in view. His words were
generally accepted as an answer to
the recent remarks of John T. King
at the Republican outmg at Pleasure
Beach.
George Gordon Battle and Herbert
C. Pell, prominent New York Demo
crats, addressed the large crowd on I
the subject of burdensome taxes,
over regulation, and curtailment of
personal liberty. Both the visitors
expressed their delight at the large
crowd and were appreciative of the
careful attention with which their
words were followed. Mayor Joseph

gathering with a number of good
jokes and stories, making no attempt
to talk politics. William H. Keefe,

One of the most daring1 jail breaks ever recorded in the an

ties, made a rapid and well planned get-away from the Fairfield
County jail, being gone a half hour at least before their absence

City Brings
$4, 1 00 Suit
On Accident
A suit for damages of $4,100,
brought through the City of Bridge
port against John F. Cam and Fred
C. Washington, Waterbury, owners of
the truck that crashed into one of
the city ambulances on Main street on
January 3, last, brings to mind the
accident, in which the ambulance
driver, Parick J. ConnelL was quite
seriously injured, and the ambulance
partially demolished.
The men from Waterbury are nam
ed as the owners of the truck, and
are blamed with careless and reck
less operation in the complaint filed
in Superior court today. The peculiar
part of the papers on file is that the
action is being brought by Attorney
Edward Garfield Burke. Deepi River,
Conn., rather than by City Attorney
W. H. Comley.
Will Seek
Witness Of
Fatality
Coroner John J. Phelan was on
the bench in the Coroner's court to
day for the first time since he returned
from a trip to the Pacific coast and
took evidence in the tragic death at
noon Saturday of August Carlson,

front of a Buick automobile at the

which struck the man, and which was
apparently not traveling at an exces

Charles J. Hahnn, 10819 97th street,
Brooklyn, and driven by his 19 year
old daughter, Anna J. Hahnn.
A number of witnesses were exam

Leading Economist Of Country Predicts
Prices Will Never Drop to Pre-War Level
Washington. Aug. 22 High prices
are here to stay.
W. Jett Lauck, one of the leading
economists of the country made this
statement today. The good, old days ;
when Mr. Common Citizen's income j
met living costs without stretching 1
the imagination or straining pocket- j
book, are gone, never to return, he
declared.
The return to normalcy means re- !
turn to conditions of 1919-1920, not
The men who are still at large to-
day are Theodore DeAndre of Bridge
port, sentenced at the May term of
Superior criminal court to a year, for
seduction; Frank W. Lindsley, serv
ing nine months for automobile thiev
ing, having Ibeen sent up from Stam
ford and Clarence Mitchell, doing six
months, having been sent up from the
Bridgeport City court, being an habit
ual law breaker.
Of the three men, Lindsey is the
most sought after today. After serv
ing his sentence here he was to be
turned over to either the authorities
of Springfield. Mass., or the Federal
officials, for he was a much wanted
man because of his alleged connec
tion with a string of automobile
thefts.
The men were seen by a guard a
short time before breakfast. When
the prisoners were given their morn
ing meal, the three vacant seats at
the table were noted. A search was
immediately instituted, and the es
cape discovered. A piece of iron and
part of an old saw found in DeAn
dre's cell, taken with the general de
portment of the men, all of whom
worked together in the leather shop
at the jail, has led the county au
thorities, including Sheriff Simeon
Pease, to believe that it was DeAn
dre who was the brains of the gang,
and who planned the get-away.
He was an office worker, and con
sidered a bright man, and no doubt
led the other jail breakers, who, it
is ttiought, manufactured a key with
the crude tools and then unlocked the
door necessary to release them from
the corridor.
The progress of the men was traced
through the jail building to a point
where a high dormer window was
broken, giving them access to the
roof. From this vantage point it is
plain that the men slid down the
roof, going from higher sections of
the North avenue structure to the
lower portions, finally reaching the
ground at the north of the building,
so far removed from the street that
tihe.y were not noted by early church
goers.

of the approximately 200 guests es
