(Special Cable to Altoona Mirror and Chicago Dally News.) , BADEN-BADEN, Germany; Nov. 7. —The American members of the in- terhatlonal bank commission are paying their own. expenses while attending the sessions here. The other delegations are financed by the central banks which called the conference, The central banks also are paying the expenses of the conference secretariat, while the printing is done in the central banks. The other delegations offered to pr"orate the expenses of the American delegation and requested that the Americans consider themselves as guests, but the Americans,insisted on paying their own way'as a personal contribution toward bringing the world back to normalcy. Corrections are being made in the printed copies of the statutes" and charter, with prologue. The'trustee- ship agreements is completelyi drafted with the exception of the , Germany payment postponement clause. There remains an accompanying letter to bo written and then the bank commission Is ready to submit its report. Tuesday of next week it is hoped will be the closing day of the conference, unless governmental instructions again cause delay. With the ivlndup of the commission's flrst session, it--is recognized that the barik, which • some planners hoped would be "the central bank of central banks," is .at the beginning at least to be/nothing more than 'a cash register, recording German reparations in and out. The bank has been Scotched as a large depository for gold, competing with other central banks, and the bank .is a limited promoter of Ger-.i man exports. The role of the international settlements banks is to receive and disburse German reparations payments. (Copyright, 1929, Chicago Dally News, Inc.)

TARTOX, Staff Correspondent. (Copyright, 1929, by Consolidated Press Association.) NEW YORK, Nov. 7.—The Baumes laws, traffic congestion and the stock market made necessary an increase in pay for policemen and firemen, according to spokesmen for the movement which, in the city election, passed a constitutional amendment raising i the minimum pay of policemen and llremen to ?3,000 per year. Back of the campaign of the crime and lire fighters, there was an astute ;incl informed analysis of many urgent municipal problems, some typical of other American cities, some peculiar to New York, but all affording, incidentally, a vast amount of Information on the battle against disorder and danger in American cities. During the World war, police and firemen were receiving $1,400 per year. Through the long and incessant fight, by which they will now receive more than twice this amount, they have made small repeated gains, by resorting to the referendum, rather by an appeal to the city authorities. It was explained that success came only when they took tho' light out of the field of partisan politics. Tuesday's vlctoryv by which pay will be Increased $500 per year, gave, the amendment a majority of 762,273. This places the average pay of New York policemen and firemen at about $500 higher than thtf average for other large American cities. One of the leaders of the fight was Joseph J. O'Reilly, Joint secretary of the Patrolmen's Benevolent association and the Uniformed Firemen's association. Mr. O'Reilly is a veteran in police work, and has devoted many years to an intelligent and penetrating study of police problems In their wjdcr social applications. "The bull market of the last few years placed on the shoulders of the New York police a tremendous burden," said Mr. O'Reilly. "Never before at any time or place in the history of the world was there such m. concentration of wealth as there was in New. York. This brought to. the city desperate crooks and ga.ngsters from all over the; world. The safo- (Contlnued on Page 28) WINNIPEG, Man., Nov. 7.—Colonel C. D. H.

Aside from the precarious condition of the tariff, there also have been differences among the so-called regular group of Republicans concerning campaign plans for next year. The White House Is known to have been displeased with the announcement of| Chairman Moses of the senatorial campaign committee that he had selected Otto H. Kahn, New York banker, as treasurer of the committee. Shortly after tho displeasure of the president became known Kahn resigned, against Moses" wishes. PInns Are Delayed. Moses figures there are seven states In which the Republicans must reelect so-called regulars next year if the party Is to have even a paper majority of the senate. He hud hoped to start an early vigorous campaign, but his plans now are being delayed. The Johnson matter was apparently closed so far as the official records are concerned when Mr. Hoover public a letter ho had sent Johnson declaring the omission of his name from the dinner list was the mistake of some attache of the White House and not an intended slight based on. Johnson's opposition to some of the Hoover policies in the senate. Johnson accepted the statement, although there was no indication the existing unfriendliness of tho two had been in any wa.y amel- llorated. it has been indicated one of tho Re- .publlcan tariff leaders, Senator David A. Reed of Pennsylvania, waa instrumental In the sending of tha explanation to Johnson. He called at the White House shortly before the letter came and personally offered Johnson an explanation of the mistake. Later in the day Johnson voted against Reed's attempt to raise the duty on pig iron to $1.50 a ton. Cut Pig; Iron Duty. By a vote of 48 to 30, with nineteen Republicans in the affirmative, the senate fixed the rate of this important item of the bill at 75 cents, which is 50 per cent below the present law, and the $1.12^ rate fixed in the house bill. The coalition proposes to do about the same thing with manganese, which Is now under consideration, raising tho item used in steel manufacture from the free list and Imposing a duty of L'/t, cents a pound instead of 1 cent as in existing law. Reed had championed the return of the metal to the free list. The Pennsylvania senator informed the senate after the pig iron vote that he considered the coalitions as objectionable as communists so far as the country's welfare Is concerned, and he warned that tho coalition might "weep" after the elections next year. Charge Hade and Denied. WASHINGTON, D. C., Nov. 7.— The suggestion that President Hoover Induced Republican members of the senate finance committee to reverse themselves and place manganese- on the free list while drafting the tariff bill was made and denied in the senate 'today as the Independent-Democratic coalition resumed Its attack on the administration measure. Senator Wheeler, Democratic, Montana, and Senator Bratton, Democrat, New Mexico, brought up the question of the committee's change of heart on the manganese question. They repeated rumors current at the time tho committee took its second*voto on tho manganese rate that the president influenced two members of the committee to vote for free admission after they had first supported an increase in rate. Chairman Smoot of the committee and Senator Bingham, Republican, Connecticut, denied the president had communicated with them. Chairman Moses of the senatorial campaign committee whoso selection of Otto Kahn, Now York banker, as treasurer, brought the displeasure of tha White House', said in answer to questions "it was a matter of common rumor In Washington at the time" but added he had no personal knowledge of tho facts. No action was taken In the matter, but the incident appeared to some to accentuate tho series of differences between tho White House and the senate, climaxed yesterday, when Senator Johnson, Republican, California, failed through what President Hoover said*was a mistake, to get a Whlta House dinner invitation. DON'T FAIL TO SEE PAGE 33 Harry J. Kerlin Has Good Reason For A Sale. You have been fed up on all reasons Tor a sale, and every merchant is try- Ing some new scheme 'to trump up a sale. But for once in the history of Altoona, is a real bona fide reason for a great sale, where the words slashing of prices, sacrifice, everything must go and other sale slogans are genuine. By January 1st, we want nothing in this building but the bare walls, we want every piece and suite of furniture in somebody's home, all wo want .s what the goods cost us, and even at that there are many suites marked ;ess than cost. Take for instance, a ten pieca .dining room suite in solid mahogany construction and choice crotch cross banding. Here is a suite :hat we paid three hundred and forty- five dollars for, it is offered in this great sale for two hundred and fifty dollars, and if there is any doubt in your mind, our books'in the office are open for your inspection. This is a sale where everything must go and we do not intend in our advertisements to show a lot of pictures of goods advertised. It is enough that you know this store Is full of good furniture and you can see the actual goods rather than pictures. When could you make a more profitable purchase of Christmas goods than now? Spinet desks, chairs, fancy tables, cedar chests, cogswell chairs, lamps, anything and everything that makes nice Christmas presents. All at great sacrificed copies. Even a.s I am writing this ad the assistant sales manager of the Roberts- Gordon company called me from Pittsburgh, to come over and meet him tomorrow, bul I could not go bei-uuse of the first day of my sale. So you .see the gas business is railing "mo every day and I get out as soon us possible, your buying will save you real money and help me, too.
