They know and they will gladly join you In testifying that the upright lawyer sells his services but never his soul. No Clients but Party. "I have no clients today but the Democratic party and, if they will It so, the people of the United States." "I indict the Republican party In its organized capacity," said Mr. Davis, "for having shaken public confidence to Its very foundations. I charge it with having exhibited deeper and more widespread corruption than any that this generation of Americans has been called upon to witness. "I charge it with complacency In the face of that corruption and with ill-will toward the effort of honest men to expose It. I charge it with gross favoritism to the privileged and with utter disregard of the unprivileged. I charge It with Indifference to world peace and with timidity in the con-, duct of our foreign affairs." Mr. Davis did not spare President Coolidge, his opponent in this campaign, declaring that Mr. Coolidge could not escape responsibility for the conditions he condemned. The Democratic nominee was emphatic in his declaration of conviction that the United States should not only enter the World court, but the League of Nations.

Washington. Continuous nlr mall service from New York to San Francisco Is successful from every standpoint after a month of trial. Postmaster General New declared In a report here. In the 31 days starting July 1, when the new service was begun, not a single day has been missed, despite bad weather, and no accidents worthy of mention have taken place. In that period the mail planes flew 173,910 miles. The average time was 39 hours 49 minutes from New Yrk to San Francisco and 36 hours 21 minutes from San Francisco to New York. "Of the first 20 nights of flying there were only C with clear weather through from Chicago to Cheyenne," according to the postmaster general's report. "Most of the time the air mail pilots encountered cloudbursts, tornadoes and severe electrical storms, which proved a greater menace to aviation than more severe rain and snowstorms experienced in other seasons of the year. "While the gross Income from the service for the first month of its operation is substantially less than the cost of maintenance, said the postmaster general today, it would be unfair to lay too much stress upon the exact balance between Income and outgo until we have had six months' Intensive traffic solicitation." Anniversary Sale Bargains Also many others not listed) Mr. Davis revived the League of Nations issue, dragging In by the heels the Madison Square garden platform declaration for a referendum on the subject, waxed eloquent in denunciation of the Kn Klux Klan without mentioning the organization by name, and pledged himself to administer a Just government If elected. The Democratic nominee was explicit in making alleged corruption In public office his chief issue, but was reluctantly forced by Senator Thomas J. Walsh of Montana, who made the notification address, to dignify a charge made by William Jennings Bryan, that he was the attorney for "big business" Interests. Walsh Mentions Wall Street. "The argument," said Senator Walsh Iowa Woman, Disliking Suicide, Lured Lad to Death by Promise of Play. Waterloo, Iowa. According to a signed confession, made public, six-year-old Nicholas Maharies was thrown Into the Cedar river to drown by his stepmother, Mrs. Marie Maharies, because she "hated the boy and wished to hang for the murder, rather than commit suicide. The authorities refused to believe Mrs. Maharies when she told them she had killed her stepson, but with the finding of Nicholas body a charge of first-degree murder was brought against Mrs. Maharies. The county prosecutor said he would ask the death penalty. In the county jtul Mrs. Maharies maintained a stolid indifference until she was told Nicholas' body had been found. Then she consented to eat a light meal the first !n several days. She said she was "glad she had been proved truthful." The story of Nicholas slaying, as told in the confession. Is one of canning. She told how her "extreme hatred- for her stepson, coupled with her wish to end her life, led her to plot the slaying of Nicholas In the hope that she would not only rid herself of him." but that she would be put to death for the crime. Lured by Promlsa of Play. . She told how she had selected, after several trips to the river, a deep spot ami then lured the boy there on the pretext that she would allow nun to go wading. When they reached the river Mrs. Maharies said she waded Into the river twice to test the depth, and. finding a spot sufficiently deep, she lured the boy away from the bank. Then she allowed him to pass In front of her, and while she threw gtones Into the water, waited until the boy had reached a perilous position and then pave the thrust that sent him to his death. In his notification speech to Mr. Davis, Rich Cincinnati Klansman Kidnaped, Stripped Naked Cincinnati, Ohio. Theodore Heck, Jr., thirty-six, son of the millionaire owner of the Heck company, furniture dealers of this city, and a reputed member of the Ku Klux Klan, was kidnaped by several men and a woman driving a large car( with curtains closed.

Satisfied with the progress of the Republican campaign. President Coolidge has decided to take a vacation of ten or twelve days shortly after the formal notification exercises, August 14. Mr. Coolidge plans to go to his father's home at Plymouth, Yt following a custom of many years, with Mrs. Coolidge and their son, John. "that you are a Wall Street man, in an opprobrious sense. Is without merit, as Is the assertion that your nomination Is a Wall Street nomination." Mr. Walsh, in defending Mr. Davis on this charge, paid eloquent tribute to him on his law record, particularly as solicitor general of the United States. Mr. Davis, acknowledging this defense, said: "I take note, Mr. Chairman, In passing, of what you were good enough to say concerning my past career and conduct ns a lawyer. I have no apology to offer for either. The answer to any criticism on that score must come not only from those who. like yurself, have won the highest distinction at the bar, but also from the more than one hundred thousand other hon- Madman on Train Kills One and Then Ends Life Cass Lake, Minn.
