A .. a c.d e THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, SUNDAY MORNING. JtJLY 26, form' of statement given out by him personally. , " The statement is viewed as the forerunner of much Congressional criticism when Congress meets and a demand that Government attention be directed chiefly to economic conditions in this country. Insurgent Republicans and many of the Democrats, it now seems certain,' will unite in this demand. McKellar said international bankers of this country were- largely responsible for Germany's financial trouble and not only obtained the moratorium so as the better to get their money back, but now want the United States Government to Join other Governments in putting up loans for Germany. ' While Senator McKellar said Germany was having a hard time finan cially and every true American sympathized with her, he pointed The othpr prisoner ald he was William Stapp, 33, of Ninth fln) Pine streets. Police believe that both men are responsible for a series of other hold-ups and requested Magistrate O'Brien to hold them pending further investigation. out tnat uermany was reported to have offered to guarantee to Russia $400,000,000 in credit. "It would lpdeed be a pretty pas( if America Joined with other na-ttona in putting up $400,000,000 for Germany and the money should be spent in helping Russia, which na-tion America does not even recog. nize as a Government," said the Senator.

St,. s Duff Motor Co. 1111-1117 S. Broad St. Fleming Bro. 621S Ridga Av, INDIO, Calif., July 25 (A. P.). In the seclusion of the desert, surrounded by a peace he had sought for years, Al G. Barnes, dynamic showman of the circus, died at 5.40 A. M. today. Pneumonia - and complications brought to an end his turbulent life. Time and again in the seven months since he came here, seeking to cure a lung ailment, his life was despaired of but each time he recovered, until a sinking spell beat down his lowered resistance. The tall, white-haired circus veteran was conscious almost to the last, attendants said. At his bed-aide was his third wife", Mrs. Margaret Qoldsborough Barnes, former wire of a Colorado cattle man. They married only last December In Phoenix, Ariz, Former Wives Living Two other women, former wives of Barnes, live near Los Angeles. incy are Mrs. uollle Warnes, his Hrst wife, and Mrs. Jane Barnes, his second wife, by whom he had his only children, two girls and a boy, A sister, Mrs. Lydia Bishop, living in Michigan, is the only other survivor. Around the first two wives and the circus was built the sensational life of Barnes, from which he sought to escape two years ago when he sold out for a million dollars and began an almost secluded life at his home in Los Angeles. Hardly a year of this quiet retirement passed before his health began to fall. From the time of his arrival here he was confined to bed almost constantly and a ranch where he lived was guarded to protect the quiet that he sought. Began with 'Waon Show' Lire brought to Al O. Barnes an unusual success as a master showman and then, In his most prosperous years, It led him to the court in a series of domestic troubles, which kept his name In sensational cases for nearly sixteen years. , Although the public knew him as owner of the Al O. Barnes Circus for thirty-five years, he waa christened at his birth In Lobo, Ont., Can., Sept. 1, 1862, "Alpheus George Barnes Stonehouse." His early life was spent on a farm, but the spirit of the showman lived in all his youthful play, leading him In the following years to circus life. With Dollie Barlow, whom he later married and who figured with him ill' many bitter court battles, he started a humble wagon show in Glenwood Springs, Colo., In 1895. The showt was a squeaky phonograph, a pony and a picture machine, now common to the penny galleries of metropolitan cities. Success came to them from the outset. In 1900, they married and consolidated the wsaon show and several small road acts to form the nucleus for the Al G. Barnes Cir- and try.

Barlow, brother of Mrs. Barnes, sued the showman for $100,000 alleging alienation of his wife's affections. Barlow lost the suit, but it was followed by a divorce action by Mrs. Barnes, charging immoral relations. This was a far different ahow for Barnes and it began for him nearly sixteen years as the central figure in many courtroom scenes. . The divorce was denied, but It was the forerunner of five similar suits, filed at different periods by either the husband or wife, ending In 1921 at Las Vegas, Nev., where Barnes obtained a divorce on grounds of desertion. The next day, he married Jane Hartlgan, named by Mrs. Barnes as co-respondent. This second marriage brought a renewal of domestic troubles. In 1923 Barnes obtained a divorce in Las Vegas again,, claiming the second Mrs, Barnes had horsewhipped him. Six years of court actions followed by her in an effort to Ret aside the decree, ending in 1929 when a Los Angeles court denied her contest. Bulgarian Payments Overdue ATHENS, Greece, July 25 (A.
