Since 1924, the house of Morgan has ited in this country Japanese public and private borids to extent of'more than $280,000,000. Other banking firms, * less, have also handled Japanese bonds.

Eighteen-year-old Rose, who testified for the prosecution at the trial of her brother-for shooting the man she loved, Francis A. Donaldson in, said she - would return to • the . home she -left last November "to begin all over again.*' ; . Eddie, who is 23, was free after three months in prison, the ordeal of a week-long murder trial and the torture of telling to a crowded courtroom A tale of the tragedy which necessitated references to his sister's alleged indiscretions with Donaldson. "It's good to have all that over with," he said. "Rose arid I have 'talked things over and we are going t otry to forget it alL We will never mention all this to each other as long as we live. I've always loved Rose and I always will." Horace Allen, the father, who looks 20 years older than the 58 he is, forgot his financial reverses and his enfeeblement in the joy, of a reunion With his children and the memory of a cheering throng's tribute to his boy after the verdict Saturday night. "I wish to thank, with all my heart, the many, many persons, known and unknown, from all sections of the country, who have sent us words fo kindness, sympathy and encouragement through all these trying days," he declared, "I have received so many letters that it is impossible for me to answer all individually, but I would like them to know how deeply I appreciate their thought and kindness." Sunday Eddie drove back to the jail and collected his belongings. He had no time for anything like that Saturday night, when policemen had to clear a way for him through a widely yelling crowd which shouted "Atta boy, Eddie," "Ray for you, Eddie," set off fireprackei-s, blew automobile horns and shrieked itself hoarse. It was the greatest demonstration this county seat has seen since the World war armistice. The acquittal had been forecast after Eddie told his story Friday. That day the courtroom audience hissed and booed Prosecutor Stewart Kase and broke into handclapping at statements made by Allen. Francis A. Donaldson Jr., father of the dead youth, denounced the verdict of acquittal. "The law,' as I see it," he said, "which is supposed to be for the protection of all has not been upheld. The trial and its result have been a great shock t ome, but I think that the freedom given to the overbearing conduct of Mr. (William T) Conno% defense counsel, during the trial, and the over emphasis placed by the trial judge upon the self-defense theory could not have resulted otherwise than in the verdict returned by the Jury. "I still have, and my son's friends have, unswerving loyalty in the memory of a gentleman unafraid, killed on a mission of peace, and from that I connot be swerved by prejudiced opinion an4 » verdict caused by emotion." Advised of Mr. Donaldson's statement, Judge Knight said only "We ex- those things."

Fishing Schooner Rammed; 21 Drown Sea Disaster Off Cape Sa, ble Reported by Belgian Liner's Skipper NEW YORK.—Tears coursing down his weather-beaten cheeks, Capt. J. M. Lavlgne of the Belgian liner "Jean Jadot," Sunday told a tragic tale Of the sinking of the fishing schooner "Eleanor Nickerson," the death of 21 of her crew, and the rescue of six others, 60 miles off Cape Sable early Friday morning. During a raging storm, just at daybreak, the Jean Jado, a freglht-pas- senger vessel of 7,000 tons, rammed and sank the Eleanor Nickerson, 110 feet long, and equipped with an auxiliary motor. "We were blinded by the storm," explained Captain' Lavlgne. "Ten feet more and we would have cleared the schooner. I tried In every way to avoid the collision, but we were too close."' • • : One 'of the rescued men, Arthur. Burke of Boston, graphically described the tragedy. / "With six other members of the crew, I Was on deck at 6:45 Friday morning. Suddenly there was a terrific crash to starboard, just aft of the main- rigging, practically cutting the Nickerson in twoifiearjthe stern. I realized the only way out was'gelling overboard, and I slashed the ropes holding the dories. "Five others joined me in.one of the lna( tne D dories. We were the only ones not in ' w j t f, jji 00( j the bunks or repairing nets below. There Was no time for'them to get out. In a few seronds the schooner went down. Meantime, with a gale raging and pelting hail blinding us, we noticed the Jadot swing alee, tossing about in the stormy sea. At length we were able to get within reach of a Jacob's ladder swung out to us, and we scrambled aboard the liner. The rescued men, besides Burke, are Franklin Leblanc, Boston; Calvin Hemion, Dorchester, Mass.; Edmund Burdine and Paul Leblanc, Maldon, Mass., and Frances Feltmate, Nova Scotia. All of them, as well as several members of. the crew of the Jadot, were in a highly nervous state as the Belgian ship docked in South Brooklyn Sunday morning. • Father Accuser Tettif ie» Against Son and Companion at Triple Murder Trial RIPLEY, Tenn.— (IP) —A father'* testimony against his son opened the trial of Albert Moore, 30, and Harrison Yon, 30, for the "torch" murder of Moore's stepmother, Mrs. Mary Moore, 42, last month. Attorney General George C. Watkins indicated the state would ask the death penalty for the two farmers who also are under"Indictment for the murder of Mrs. Moore's two children by a former marriage, Frances and J G. Grlgsby. Jim Moore, the father, testified that his son and Yon were at his house until 9 o'clock the night of January and that when they left Albert borrowed his coat. Early the next morning, he said he was told that the body of his wife anc her two children had been taken from their burning home., ,Wheh the coa was returned, it had a hole burned in the back, he said. The previous Monday, the father said, he had heard his son tell Mrs. Moore he'd "beat her head off." There had been other threats, too, he said. J. W. White, on whose farm near- Curve, Tenn., Mrs. Moore and the children lived, said that he removed the bodies of the 'woman and her children from the blazing house and that the bed clothes were "soaked ttftttlI J, INK HBMPSAD £01 For Sheriff SIMON *t Dnifttst Mop* CKPYOFHOPE (Democratic Primary Feb. 23) l?dr City Clerk FRBD WEBB For City Attorney PAT CASEY For Alderman Ward Ortft L.

Japanese Troops Clash With Cops at Tientsin TIENTSIN— (JP) —Uneasiness here was increased Monday by an encounter between Japanese soldiers and police in the Chinese city. The soldiers, fully armed, marched into the heart of the old native city and demanded entrance at the military police station. The sentry refused them passage, whereupon the soldiers surrounded the station and disarmed the police. Later the police arms were returned, but a larger body of troops came and occupied the vicinity, retiring only after the Chinese mayor and the Japanese consul had signed an agreement by which the Chinese authorities assumed responsibility for order in the quarter. The contents of the document, which the mayor said he signed under duress, were not published.
