The issue is local self government against centralized power; individual liberty against regimentation and collectivism." The "grievances" resolution warned against political control of banking as being recommended by Socialists and Communists as "nine-tenths of the Socialistic apparatus." SCHEDULE.

Japanese and Russian versions contradicted each other directly. Each nation blamed the other, and each has filed a protest. All that was certain'was that a patrol of Japanese and Manchu- kuoan soldiers met a patrol of Russians on the eastern frontier of Manchukuo and that a Russian was killed. The fight occurred June 3. It was not made public until Russia announced its protest. Japan's version is that the patrols met on Manchukuoan soil, near Lake Hanka. Lake Hanka lies mdstly in Siberia, but juts out into Manchukuoan territory. The Russians, the foreign office said, fired on the Japanese. The Japanese, the spokesman said, requested that the Russian cease firing. The firing continued, it was asserted, and the Japanese replied, killing one Russian soldier who was buried respectfully. The burial feature, it was noted, would tend to confirm the story that the clash occurred on Japanese soil. General Jiro Minami, ambassador to Mauchukuo and commander j Qn of the Japanese army in Manchu- kuo, protested June 5 to the Russian consul at Harbin, the foreign office said, complaining both that Manchukuoan soil was invaded, and that the Russians fiired first.

Washington, June 11. — Federal agents pearly today discovered $90,700 in ! a canyon five miles from Salt Lake City, buried by the Weyerbjaeuser kidnapers, Director J. Edgar Hoover of the federal bureau; of investigation, announced. The money was discovered in the famous Immigration Pass, where Brigham Young first entered Salt Lake City. It was buried about two feet in the ground,; wrapped in black oil cloth and covered with a gunny sack. ! The cachje was about "two blocks front a highway. Harmon JM. Waley, who was arrested with his wife, Margaret, on charges of participating in' the kidnaping of George Weyerhaeuser at Tacoma, Wash., confessed that the $200, 000 ^ransom was split between himself and William Mahan, who still is being sought, Hoover said. "Waley said he was shortchanged about $5,000, that he burned $4,0|00 because it was too hot for him; to keep, spent $300 and buried $90,700," the director continued. ; Federal Officials said they believe now that the kidnaping was a two-man i job, engineered by Mahan and • Waley, perlfaps with the help of the latter's wife. They said they believed Mahan either had buried (he rest of the ransom money or perhaps still had It with him. | Nearly $16,000 wag found In his automobile over the week end when he escaped from police at Butte, Mont. The officials revealed also that the kidnapers had not violated the Lindbergh kidnap laws because it had; been established definitely that 'the boy had not been taken from '• the state of Washington. i ' (By i United Press). Salt Lake City, Utah, June 11. The final ahd complete clean-up of the Weyerhaeuser kidnaping was believed imminent today. . It was reported without confirmation that department of justice agents here held three men in addition !to Harmon D. Waley and his 19-year-old wife as participants in the abduction of nlnc.- year-old George Weyerhaeuser. It also was reported that William Mahan, ex-convict and alleged "Egoist" who wrote the ransom notes, had been captured in 01 near Eutte.-Mont. Laders of the federal agents, when asked, for confirmation', shrugged and said nothing. : The agents' quarters on ' the fifth floor of the federal building were so closely guarded that nr onu could -eyen approach the corridor without being challenged. Intense activity was manifest! Three prisoners, heavily guarded WE-IC taken Jin last night. E. J. Connel'y, agent in .charge, cancelled a press conference at the la?t minute,!! his subordinates explaining that he was "detained" elsewhere." j: Tho full 'confession of Waley; an ox -convict, and his. young but "plain" wit i gave the : agenti complete ktpwledge of ramiflca- liouc of the Washington held him a i week, 'and collect $200,000 raisom.

The death penalty wijl be asked for all members "ofj ta* gang, Washington state officials indicated. They will be tried as quickly as possible. It was believed federal agents already had agreed to their trials under th-j state law rather than under the Lindbergh law, which does not permit the death penalty where the victim is returned unharmed. Warrants for the Waleys, Mahan, and an unidentified j'Joha Doe" were issued yesterday in Tacoma and it Was indicated warrants were ready for three other persons. All were charged with using the mails to defraud. Mahan was charged in addition with using the mails to extort a ransom, indicating that, he was named by Waley as the writer of the ransom notes. ' Reports that the gang transferred part of the ransom money to underworld characters for passing received some confirmation as a sharp watch still was maintained for the bills.- In Victorville, Cal., two men and a blonde woman passed two $5 bills that were identified as . part of the ransom. They were last seen in a green sedan traveling toward Las Vegas, Nev. took apart the : carafe and of- Bruno Richard HaBphmana's residence in the Bronx, New York. Although the "Waleys, William Mahan and one "John Doe," who has not yet been Identified, were named in the kidnaping warrants, neighbors told of the presence of other persons In and about the kidnapers' hideout, George was released Saturday, June 1, eight days after his kid- naping. He told of being confined in two places. In one, where he was kept' In a closet and saw only two men, he could hear five railroad trains passing daily. The Poirtland-Seattle ! railroad/ [passes the local residence and five trains go by the house daily. Local police were asked to watch for Mahan, a fugtitive who escaped from Butte, Mont., police Sunday. - E. L. McGucken, owner of a restaurant at Dayton, near Walla Walla, Wash., told authorities that a man he identified as Mahan visited his place Monday. McGucken based his identification on newspaper pictures of the former bank robber now named as the "Egoist" who.signed the ransom notes in the Weyerhaeuser case. There was a woman with the suspect. Officers, however, were skeptical, as they believed Mahan was trapped in Montana. Spokane, Wash., June 11.| — A girl who gave./fier name as:"Lyie Cole, a young attractive brunette, rented the brown-stained spokane house in which George Weyerhaeuser, 'son of a Tacoma millionaire, was held while negotiations were made for payment of the $200,000 ransom, it was learned today. The girls, not named in any of the several indictments ••already, returned, was described by Miss Clara Lauten, employe of the Prescott Realty Company. Miss Lauten said "Mrs. jCole" came to the company office May 27, three days after the kidnap- ing, and signed a lease for the place, owned by Mrs. J. J. Evans. "She paid $28 for one month's rental and took the key.'i Miss Lauten said. "She said her hus- .band was out of work and would be with her shortly. ; "The girl was about 5 feet 3 inches tall, .in her early 20's, and had brown hair. Federal agents found the house yesterday, presumably on jinfor- mation given them in the confessions made by Harmon Waley and his wife Margaret, who were arrested In Salt Lake City j after passing more than twenty of the federal reserve notes paid by John Philip Weyerhaeuser for his son's release. : ! It was understood a painstaking search was being made of the premises for finger prints x left by George's abductors. !
