IIy .NKOI.KV PARSON. (Spcclnl Calilc to Altoonn Mirror nml Cliicfm-o Dully News.) LONDON, Nov. 8.--Tho. hmiso ')f commons hns decided to renew diplomatic relations with soviet Kn.sHla 1).V a vote of 324 to 529. Robert Hoothby, Jjady Astor and Colonel John Huehan the novelist, C'onsiTvatlves, voted for It. This was despite the fuel (hat Stanley Baldwin, speaking for Sir Austen Chamberlain's amendment deploring such nellon before the settlement of all oittHtiindliiK f|iiestlonH, warned the house Hint Stiilin & Co., at Moscow were sincere families, believing firmly In world revohillon and •would never comply with Dovgnl- Vesky's promise to abslnin from anil- . British propaganda. The drnmatle flnnln of Baldwin .1 speech was when he waved before Ihe packed house the statement mmle by Secretary of Slate Kellogg, last February outlining tin' reasons for America's refusal to grunt diplomatle relations with the soviet union and slated: "That sums up, tensely and ueeurately our attitude." Tho debute, whleh for a time looked quite exciting, was really killed by Lloyd George. Baldwin. In heckling Arthur Henderson, had extracted from him the admission that the government, by stand- Ing upon Article 10 of the 1924 treaty, had thereby admitted that the soviet government was "orgn.nlcn.lly connected" with the Third Internationale. Driving home thin point Baldwin quoted a previous utterancn of the present chancellor of Iho exehequor, Philip Snowden, in which the latter, Mating the gist of Article 16, Bald, "It Is Idle for the .soviet government to deny complicity In hostile propaganda. Tho soviet government, the communist Internationale and the Russian trade unions are a trinity, three In ono and one in three." Lloyd George then arose and by pouring ridicule upon the dangers of Russian propaganda, saying Hint when he was in office he had thrown all such nonsense into the waste basket, diverted the discussion from this serious is.suo. . From Hie following vote It was ob• vlous that the majority of the mem- - tiers of the house of commons have long since abandoned hope of successfully divorcing the actions of the soviet government from the Third In- ternallonalo and did not wish to discuss It. The question of thu soviet repayment of debts was scarcely mentioned. Tho debate throughout WHS characterized by Great Britain's trade starvation. Chamberlain made this plain when he- declared that the soviet government was seeking trade control, aaylng, "unless you accept our political terms, orders will not be placed, and that by resumption of relation* under such terms the British wore submitting to blackmail. Arthur Henderson aroused the smallest enthusiasm of the house when ho declared resoundingly that not onu penny of the British taxpayers' money would go in a government loan to RUB- sla It was too obvious to all present that without loans of some sort business from the Soviets Is Impossible. Business men of the city do not expect that the resumption of relations will make It easier for private credits. A mutual exchange ot ambassadors Is now in order. It Is likely that Sir Robert Hodgson, former charge d affaires at Moscow In 1927. will bo appointed to Moscow If acceptable to Iho soviet government, with the alternative of Sir Georgo Clerk, British minister at Constantinople. The writer understands that there Is a strong possibility that the Russians will appoint Sokolnlkov, now president of the Asnepht Oil trust, to the London office. Ho was soviet delegate to Genoa and Tho Haguo and one time almost lost favor in Russia owing to his decided views of the necessity of bringing in foreign capital and maKi- factured goods to build up Ufa as well us develop the Industries of the sovlul union.

Mr. Galbralth was born May 17, 1859, at Shude Gap, this county, and spent his early life in that section, he having learned the trade of a plasterer with his falhcr, Benjamin Galbralth, when he was quite young. After locating In this city he became associated with his brothers In the work of his tni,de, and the Galbralth brothers were well known throughout this section for many yearn for their efficiency In their workmanship.

(By United Prose.} CONSTANCE, Germany, Nov. 6.— Prince Maximilian of Baden, the last Imperial chancellor of Germany, died here today after an extended illness. He was (52 years old. Suffering from an arterial trouble, complicated by a recent slight Injury, the former chancellor failed to rally after a relapse Iftflt Saturday. He had been unconscious since the relapse. Death occurred at 5.45 a. m. Prince Maximilian of Baden, as the last Imperial chancellor of Germany, wan called upon to represent a lost cause at a moment when the greatest war In history was ending and the Gorman nation was passing from a monarchy to republicanism. As a brilliant lawyer, scholar and retired lieutenant-general, Prince Max was as capable a representative as imperial Germany had In the early peace negotiations and In the desperate struggle to keep out anarchy when the dynasty was hopelessly lost. Chancellor Bethmann Hqllwlg, his control of the relchstag fading, and George Mlchaells, 'whose double-dealing with the navy mutineers was exposed, and Count Hcrtorg had preceded Prince Max In the chancellorship during the war When the kaiser asked the heir presumtlve to the grand-ducal throne of Baden to assume the leadership It was for the purpose of putting the strength of civil leaders behind the peace overtures. Prince Max insisted that he did not desire to take the Initiative in making peace and his friends counselled him against attaching his name to the collapse of the military regime which had brought on the war, but the fact remains that his first net as chancellor was to open peace negotiations. The end of the war brought with It the uprising and chaos of Germany republicanism, communism and anarchy and the prince saw but little hope of saving the dynasty. This hope faded, he said later, when the kaiser refused to abdicate early enough to permit designation of an heir to the throne and later when- just before the end—ho would not consider a regency plan. The prince wrote later of the morning of the kaiser's abdication. He knew that the decision had been made, but he did not know when announcement would be made. But the time was desperate and, with the monarchy fallen, the chancellor sought to turn back the tide of communism and anarchy and establish the republic. After some hesitation he announced the abdlcatl6n of the kaiser—prema- turely. That afternoon, Nov. B, 1918, lie received the German saddle-maker, Bbert, and turned over the chancellor- ORGANIZATION IS TO BACK BINGHAM Connecticut Republican Leaders and Manufacturers Will Support Him, Though Somewhat Embarrassed. ship to the little man who had given two sons for Germany, who knew that the chancellorship was a hard job, but who said he would try.

PARTON Staff Correspondent (Copyright. 1929, by Consolidated Prcsi Association.) NEW YORK, Nov. 8.—Inquiry In Hartford and other cities reveals the fact that both tho state Republican organization and the State Manufacturers' association are Inclined to stand pat on the activities of Senator Hiram Blngham, in behalf of nutmeg tariff wants, and that his political career will not be Jeopardized by the senate censure of his conduct. Free* comment. ho\yever, Indicates something like embarrassment throughout the state. Senator Blngham's action In placing Charles L. Eyanson, tariff expert 6f the Manufacturers' association, on the government pay-roll, and giving him access to the secret sessions of the senate finance committee, Is characterized as "a mistake", or as "rash folly", but there Is no emphatic denunciation. It is admitted, In several instances, that the Eyanson Incident did "tend to bring the senate Into disrepute." State officials and party leaders apparently were not sufficiently sure of their ground to resent audibly the humiliation to which Senator Blngham was subjected. Efforts of Connecticut newspapers and outside Journalists to procure statements from the governor and others met with no success. There was no evidence of Indignation at the vote or censure and a generally staunch support of the senator, but none of his friends was ready to speak for publication. It also was revealed that Connecticut politicians and .industrialists see tho entire incident as a sectional attack on Senator Bingham. The agricultural west, motivated by the desire for partisan or'-sectional advantage, Is seen as the opponent of the staunch champion of 'the industrial east. The Manufacturers' association similarly withheld formal statements,, but it is known that the state r wide membership of the organization is solidly behind Senator Bingham and not only resentful, but c6ntemptuous, of the Norris resolution and its passage.' It is known that Senator Bingham has received a number of letters and telegrams from his Connecticut, constituents, commending his stand In refusing to apologize or admit "wrong-doing and pledging him support in the future. On the whole, no evidence was discoverable that Senator Bingham's political career will bo endangered or Impaired, so far as the attitude of his home state Is concerned. It is rumored throughout the state that Senator Blngham bad considered resigning, under the pressure of official and public criticism. In industria circles, particularly, there was a iear that this might happen. Si) far as could be learned, these rumors were 'im founded. Word came from a dependable sourci that Senator Blngham had no intention of resigning, .and that Vail this wil blow over in a few • weeks." Leading Industrial and manufacturing interest are said to have been concerned ove the senate disclosures, for fear the'} might seriously., embarrass Senato Blngham. Convinced that the mil resolution of censure'.absolving'him o private discussion, that the senate Incident was "deplorable" but beyond this there seems to be little inclination to criticize. , While surface signs of the state reaction were thus rather faint, it waft clear that the Eyanson Incident and the Orundy testimony, together, have served to sharpen a sectional issue which may be fought out in the senate or elsewhere. There IB, not only in Connecticut, but in other states of highly concentrated .Industrial activity, a persistent feeling east, maker and keeper of national prosperity, is being assailed by the'"backward states," as Mr. Orundy called them. One Hartford manufacturer, speaking anonymously, insisted that the ^agricultural bloc was entirely responsible for "all this uproar" and the subsequent embarrassment to Senator Blngham. "I never get Into politics, and don't want to get mixed up In this," he said, "but you can say that we are all stand- Ing back of Senator Blngham up here. All those western states work Just as hard as wo do to get the kind of tariffs they want, whether it's California beans or Utah beet sugar. Senator Ingham went at it in a businesslike way by sending In an expert to get and ive scientific information. That's the ay to make tariffs. So far as we are oncerned, the senator has nothing to irorry about." This opinion was fairly reflective of he sentiment of manufacturing and Ig business Interests. Senator Blng- am's political organization is regarded s all but Impregnable, and his opposi- lon is not. particularly articulate or udible. Conjecture is possibly pro- corrupt motives will soon be forgottei it appeared, in general, that the stanc ing of Senator Blngham among th state's industrial leaders had been er hanced, rather than the reverse. Ther is a frequent admission, in press an mature, but present indication* are that friends of the senator are Inclined to let the senate incident die peacefully, and that his foes are not sufficient In number or strength to have much to say about it. The prickly pear, which Is a cursa in Australia, is to be fought by means of Insects Imported from Texas. Several thousand acres have already been cleared by a beetle-like insect.
