FRIDAY EVENING, JUNE 29, 1928. MARSHFIELD NEWS-HERALD, MARSHFIELD, WISCONSIN. PAGE FIVE. Al Smith's Career Market News Livestock Produce Grain Temperance Umoit Ready To Oppose Smith For President REED REMHI6 LOI TO PARTY'S iliE 24- COURT GIVES LLOYD'S FIRST WTFE 25,000 Judge Refuses Claim Of Es tranged Widow Who Askecl Million Dollars Menominee, June 29. (JP) An appeal from the decision of Judge Frank Bell, handed down Thursday awarding her $25,000 in lieu of au mony after she had sued for a $1.000, 000 in the estate of Marshall B.

Lloyd, was asked by Mrs. Margaret Isadora Iloyd in a message to her attorneys. She requested that the appeal be taken to the Michigan supreme court. Menominee. June 29.

tead of the million dollars she sought, Margaret Isadora Lloyd, divon ed wife of the late Marshall B. Lloyd, wealthy Menominee manufacturer, today could claim only $25,000 from his estate. That sum was allowed her in lieu of alimony in a decision handed down by Circuit Judge Frank Bell. The judge in his decision upheld Lloyd's divorce from her on grounds ot desertion, declined to recognize her claim that she was Lloyd's legal wife because she said she had not deserted him but had been sent away, and gave her interest on the $25,000 from the time she filed her claim last September. She had sought the million as the widow's share of the Lloyd estate.

Whether an appeal will be taken from the award rests largely with Michael J. Doyle, chief counsel for Mrs. Lloyd. He is ill in a hospital and will not be shown the decision for several weeks. As far as the defense is concerned, Atty.

Isaac B. Lipson of Chicago, chief counsel, told the Assocated Press that the "defendants are satisfied; we will not appeal." Alimony Question Late "The judicial record imparts verity," Judge Bell's decision said. The question of alimony has never been before cited until the present hearing. As En injured spouse Margaret Lloyd might well have been allowed one-fourth of his property but as an erring one, much less but still something." He upheld the divorce, granted in 1920 and declared that despite the testimony given by Frank Lloyd, a disinherited son, concerning alleged immorality on the part of Lloyd, "there is nothing in the case which lays its foundation in facts worthy of any credence, which casts as much as a shadow over the good name of the dead or living." Lloyd was re-married several years after his divorce to Henrietta Lloyd, who is still living. "There is nothing in the evidence," head the decision," to require the court to set aside the decree and to declare her, the legal wife." "We may now view the progress of Marshall B.

Lloyd as far as it affects this case," the decision went on. "He was of an inventive turn of mind. Generally, he was much absorbed in his patents; eccentric sometimes but he was business man enough to secure the fruits of his inventions. Lloyd Claimed Desertion "By the time the plaintiff separated from him he was manager and part owner of a manufacturing establishment using his inventions, which employed 500 men, he was mayor of Menominee and looked upon as a man of wealth. "The plaintiff knew this.

The record-in the divorce decree, though meager, shows Marshall B. Lloyd claimed the plaintiff deserted him. "Marshall B. Lloyd is dead. The mouth of the plaintiff is closed.

She offered her own testimony as far as she could go as to an occurrence from which the court was asked to draw the inference that Marshall B. Lloyd was not true to her; that she described his predelictions to wander far from the fold and that she left him because of this and that he escorted her to the train when they forever severed marital relations. "She supports this, or attempts to, by testimony of a disinherited son of Marshall Lloyd to effect that the latter confessed his infidelity to him. This son so promptly appears in suit and concedes claim of plaintiff that in view of his disinheritance it is rather difficult to believe he is entirely disinterested and. conviction is forced that his story loses nothing in telling.

However the truth may be the evidence here relative to Mr. Lloy'ds conduct arouses at most suspicion and cannot be permitted to outweigh solemn decree of this court made nine years ago, declaring plaintiff guilty of desertion. The judicial record imports Little Appeal to Court Relative to the claim of plaintiff of lack of jurisdiction by court in granting divorce decree because of errors in service papers involved, the court in substance said there was no showing that the plaintiff was misled by such errors. What showing was made, he said, "has little appeal to court at this late day," in view of the fact she was able to vigorously assert her claimed rights less than two months after the death of Mr. Lloyd after a silence of seven years.

"So far as the evidence in this case concerns their characters, Marshall B. Lloyd may sleep in peace and the two women who were his wives may go forth worthy of respect." Albany, N. June 29. (JP) Following is a skeleton history of Governor Alfred E. Smith, the new Democratic nominee.

Born: December 30, 1873, in the shadow of Brooklyn Bridge. Youth: Left school in early teens to support widowed mother. News boy, oil factory office boy and clerk in the Fulte-n Fish market. Relaxation was amateur theatricals, in which he played villian- parts. First turning toward politics; Came under eye of Tom Foley, Tammany leader, and was given job in office of commissioner jurors.

Married: In 1900 married Katherine Dunn of New York on salary of $75 a month. They have had five children and family life has been markedly happy. First elective office: In 1903 was elected to state assembly and stayed there until 1915. Other elective offices: Sheriff of New York county (once). President of the New York City board of aldermen (once).

Governor of New York state (four times). Only defeat in political career of 25 years; by Nathan L. Miller for governor in -Religion; Roman Catholic. SDO DETECTIVE HERE TO PRBBETHEFT BSE Link Two Boys With Disappearance Of Woman's Purse Containing $15 Charles Boyington, Stevens Point, a special agent of the Soo line, has been in the city the past couple of days clearing up the mystery about the disappearance of a local woman's purse with a sum of money from the Soo passenger station while she was there "seeing off" a party on a train. The amount of the missing money was given as $15.

Two boys were suspected as concerned in its loss. Their story to Mr. Boyington was that they found the purse on a seat in the station without a claimant present. He said $13 of the money and the purse were recovered. It is not probable that the boys will be proceeded against in court, but the likelihood is the incident will result in the tightening of the restrictions on the number of minors allowed in and about the, depot, according to Soo line authorities.

SMITH GRINS AS DELEGATES VOTE Continued from Page Onel enthusiastically kissed by his daughter they shook hands with him and shouted their congratulation. The news spread rapidly to the crowd that had steadily increased on the lawn and several hundred people broke into the strains of "The Sidewalk of New York." The governor issued the following brief statement indicating that for all his seeming composure since the convention opened in reality his emotions had been deeply stirred: "My nomination on the first ballot fills me with joy and satisfaction that I know is shared by my family and friends and my heart is where my palate ought to be" The guests, realizing the strain the Governor had been under, left the executive mansion soon after the nomination was assured and the governor immediately prepared to retire. As he was in the shower bath he was delivered a message sent by John W. Davis congratulating him and promising support. It was the first congratulatory message received from out of town and the governor expressed keen pleasure on reading it.

NEW POSTAL RATES EFFECTIVE JULY 1 Continued from Patre One $600 to $700, 80 cents; from $700 to $800, 90 cents; from $800 to $1,000, $1. The charge for special handling on fourth class mail matter will after July 1, be as follows: For fourth class mail matter weighing not more than two pounds the charge will be ten cents in addition to the regular postage; for over two pounds ana more man ten pounds, 15 cents; more than ten pounds, 20 cents. A new regulation that is expected to result in considerable saving to commercial houses is that business reply cards may be enclosed in letters carrying regular postage and paid for at the rate of three cents per card when they are returned to the office from which they were originally sent. Persons desiring to avail themselves of this service must secure a permit in advance from the postmaster. This provision means that if a business house sends out 1,000 advertising letters with a return card enclosed and only 100 cards are returned, the postage will amount to only $3, instead of $30, which would be necessary if a one cent stamp was affixed to each of the thousand cards before mailing.

The rate on second class matter, mailed by the public, shall be one cent for each two ounces or fraction thereof. Formerly the rate was two cents for each two ounces or fraction thereof. Full information on this and other provisions may be obtained from Postmaster Rhyner.

DISPLAY STROI TOiE AT TODAY'S DPERIIK Featured By An Initial Sale Of 5,000 Shares Of Radio At 185 New York. June 2D.

JP) Stock prices displayed a strong tone at the opening of today's stock market, which was featured by an initial sale of 5,000 hares of Radio at 185, an overnight gain of 51,. and a block of 10,000 shares of General Motors at the "split price" of 188 Va to 189, an extreme rise of 24 points.

Case Threshing, which soared 42 Points in Thursday's market, fell back on realizing, and Delaware Hudson sagged 2 points in the early trading. Foreign exchanges opened steady, with Sterling Cables quoted around $4.87.

DuPont brought 3824, General Motors 1904, Radio 188, and Wright Aero 1.47. Texis and Pacific reached 159, a record for all time.

(JP) The Greek cabinet resigned today following the resignation of G. Kafandaris, minister of finance. The latter had withdrawn from the government because the Liberal party dominated by former Premier Venizel-os, had withdrawn its support of the government. Royalists are advocating the formation of a cabinet temporarily and the holding of new elections, but it is considered in other circles that the probable solution of the political crisis will be the formation of a Venizelos cabinet. CHURCH AID SPONSORS PROGRAM AJ LINDSEY Continued from Page Onel Shirley Jones served as flower girls, and Edwin Ketelle took the part of the preached.

The "Lohengrin" wedding march was played by Mr. Daniels. "Life's Fulfillment," was portrayed by a family scene, showing Mr. and Mrs. Mac Timmerman and their children enjoying an evening at home, while Miss Florence Altenburg, Lynn, sang "The Dearest Spot on Earth to Me," with organ accompaniment by her sister, Miss Lucille Altenburg.

The closing picture, "Life's Sunset," was posed by Mr. and Mrs. Perry Hayes, highly esteemed pioneers of Lindsey, while Mrs. Paul Kldd sang, "When You and I Were Young, Maggie." Owing to an unavoidable delay in the arrival of Mr. Daniels, the accom-paniest, an intermission followed the first part of the program, during which ice cream was served.

Mr. Daniels had gone to Grahton to give music lessons and while returning to Lindsey his car skidded into the ditch. Luckily he was uninjured, and was able to carry out his part in the program after his belated arrival. Mrs. John Eyers, president of the Aid society, on behalf of the organization expressed appreciation of the assistance rendered by those who took part in the program and those who showed their interest in the efforts of the society by attending the entertainment.

The proceeds of the evening will be used in connection with the new church, a 28 by 48 foot frame structure on a concrete basement, which is being built across the street from the present house of worship.

Studebaker, it was announced, will acquire a substantial interest in the new company. ML Horeb, June 29. UP) I'll feed peanuts to the elephant if Al feeds the mule. This was the battle song given members of the Dane county Woman's Christian Temperance Union in annual convention here Thursday.

This is only two lines of the chorus of the serio-comic piece recited before the white ribboners and applauded by them. The remainder has to do with the assertions of dryness of the singer and the threat to vote the Republican ticket if Al is the Democratic candidate There were nearly a hundred, universally grey haired, but none-the-less enthused campaigners for "the cause" in the county meeting, held in the little white Methodist church here. In prayer, meditation and oration they extolled and sought backing for dry candidates, dry planks and dry laws. Thursday night the Rev. G.

Carver, Dodgeville, quoted them scripture to bear out his text, "No retreat but forward march," and they cried emphatically that "The man who is wet cannot expect our suffrage." He poke at length on driving forward with the dry pennons, urging the temperance women to "get out the vote, especially the dry vote." This plea had been made earlier in the day by Mrs. Annie Wayman Warren. Stoughton, state president, who said: "Get out the dry vote; we don't care so much about the wet vote." She said 32 groups are "organized against the liquor-boosting forces in Houston, as they were in Kansas City." Throughout the proceeding no mention was made of Al Smith exnpnt. in Mrs. Warren's speech and the elephant- muie-ieedmg carol.

Mrs. Warren cited Candidate Smith's record, denounced it, then denounced "insidious" Pffrrrtx of the association against the prohibi tion amendment, said it proposed "nothing new." Numerous dry resolutions were adopted, reminiscenses were heard of aays wnen tne organization was youngerwhen the ladies' hair was not grey, when the "crusade" was on mem. orial services were held for ribboners who have passed on since the last meeting, white flowers being laid on the altar rafl of the littlft churrh bc t.hoir names were recited. Prayers were made lor tne cause; officers were re-elected, and the Christian Temperance workers went home repeating: I'll carry water to the elephant If Al feeds the mule. There was emphasis on the third word.

DEMOCRATS END HOUSTON PARLEY Continued from Pace Onel sang "Dixie" to a cheering convention, and then the roll call for vice-presidential nominating speeches began. Alabama sent to the platform Judge Michael Sollie of Ozark, who made a nominating speech for Major General Henry T. Allen, commander of the American Army of Occupation on the Rhine. Senator Bfatton of New Mexico then placed the name of Senator Robinson formally before the convention. A crash of applause that seemed to sweep nine out of ten delegations greeted the name of the Arkansan.

Bratton reviewed Senator Robinson's career at great length, praising him for his "rugged honesty" for the sagacity and for the record of his legislative accomplishments. He declared there was not one objection that could be urged against him. At the close of the speech the Arkansas delegates started a procession around the hall. Pennsylvania, Washington, North Dakota, Arizona, Utah, New Mexico, Montana, Iowa, West Virginia, Arkansas, Georgia, Colorado, Oklahoma, Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, Mississippi, South Carolina, Delaware, Nebraska, Michigan, New Hampshire, Ohio, North Carolina, Ore-gan, Maryland, Texas and Virginia were among the states who sent their standards to the parade so close ranked that it looked as though the whole army of delegates had almost gone over enmasse to the banner of the Arkansan. Delegates Yelled Out It was not a very noisy parade, for the delegates were about yelled out after the cheering and demonstrating of the past two days.

But it was impressive enough in the representative character of its personnel. After the demonstration continued for several minutes, Senator King, the acting chairman, pounded for order. Then he presented Senator David I. Walsh, of Massachusetts, who in a five-minute address, seconded the nomination of the Democratic leader of the Senate for the vice-presidency. The name of a third vice-presidential candidate was placed before the convention by Mrs.

S. Taliferro, of Rock Springs, who nominated Mrs. Nellie Taylor Ross, former governor of Wyoming. The name of another Al was placed before the delegates by former Senator A. O.

Stanley of Kentucky, who nominated for the vice-presidency Senator-Alben W. Barkley, cf the Blue Grass state. James Hamilton Lewis, former senator from Illinois, in seconding Robinson's nomination, declared that the Arkansan had all the qualifications necessary to serve as president. The youngest man to address the convention, Warren Fuller of Florida, who placed in nomination the name of Senator Fletcher of Florida, also proved to be the most vigorous. Delegates Get Kick The delegates got a kick out of his delivery.

After W. Orr Chapman of Idaho, had seconded the nomination of Mrs. Ross, N. F. Healy said that at the direction of the Iowa delegation, he would second the nomination of Senator Robinson.

Another seconding speech for Senator Robinson was made by Mrs. Mary T. Norton, congresswoman from New Jersey. NORTH DAKOTA DRY LEAD SPRINGS UPWARD 6,000 Fargo, N. June 29.

SMITH'S NOMINATION REACHESCAL TODAY He Does Not Use Special Radio Set At Lodge Superior, June 29. UP) With the news of the nomination of Governor Alfred E.

Smith of New York for Democratic president of the United States kept for his awakening today, President Coolidge arose to find the battle lines in the forthcoming campaign well defined; Governor Smith's nomination was reached at the Houston convention long after Mr. Coolidge had retired for the night. He had left no instructions to be wakened in case the nomination were reached and he only received the news today. The chief executive had been informed largely through the papers, of the likelihood that the Democratic selection of a standard bearer would be reached, but nevertheless he refrained from using the special radio set installed at Cedar Island Lodge. WEATHER STOPS RESCUE PARTIES Continued from Page One) antenna touch the ground.

He immediately took the rudder and saved the airship from disaster. Nobile's only explanation of the disaster on May 25 has been that the airship was, suddenly weighed down and it was impossible to avert the crash on the Polar ice cap. Capt.

The sealing ship Hobby flying the American flag will sail from Tromsoe on Sunday for. Kings Bay with Miss Boyd an active participant in the rescue expedition. It was understood that she was financing the project.

RE-ELECT DURST HEAD0F EQUITY Continued from Page One) He was pleased to state it still lives. Equity, of course, had its ups and downs, especially in the state at large, but all storms were successfully weathered, he declared. Referring to some of the inactive- locals, he was at a loss, however, to understand why the interest in the organization was not greater, especially in view of the-Jow membership price and the benefits derived from it and its allied enterprises. Comparing it with a leading labor union on these points, he depicted the Equity society as being exceptionally attractive. Short talks were made by Charles P.

Radlinger, a state Equity director, and Philip Weber, vice-president of the Marshfield local. The former expects to have a report on organization work in the county for the next meeting. The latter invited all to attend the Equity picnic at Bakerville July 4. Auburndale was selected by vote as the place for the next meeting. It probably will be held in October.

ff' i i Missourian Tells Delegates He Will Work For Success Of Democrats BY BYRON PRICE Houston, Texas, June 29. (JP) The Democratic nominee for president is Governor Alfred E. Smith of New York. The party standard was placed in his hands by the Democratic national convention late Thursday night, a solitary ballot sweeping him far beyond the two-thirds majority needed to nominate. Today the convention was called together to complete its work by selecting Its candidate for the vice-presidency.

Leaders among the Smith supporters had teen in conference during the early morning hours, and although Senator Robinson of Arkansas, the convention chairman, had been the favorite for second place on the ticket, others also were under consideration. Harmony Replaces Animosity In contrast to the bitter animosities that surroutfded Smith's unsuccessful bid for the presidential nomination four years ago in Madison Square Garden, impressive gestures of harmony and conciliation precede and followed his selection Thursday night as the leader of his party. Just before the ballot was taken a party platform, contrary to the usual case, was adopted without a fight in open convention. After the nomination had become a fact, his most active rival for the honor, Senator Reed of Missouri, went to the convention hall and told the delegates that no one would be more loyal than he to the newly chosen party nominee. The prohibition issue, which had been interwined with the Smith and anti-Smith tug-of-war from the beginning, disappeared from the convention picture almost as if by magic just before the nomination was made.

After many hours of debate in committee and sub-committee, a plank was found that satisfied the most prominent of Smith and anti-Smith leaders alike Composed of but two sentences, it declares the Republicans have not enforced the prohibition law, and pledges the Democratic nominee to make an honest effort for enforcement of that and all other statutes. Submerge Personal Ideas Brought to the convention floor with the support of both wets and drys, the plank provoked but a few minutes of discussion and went into the platform without a roll call. Governor Moody of Texas, a member of the platform committee, told the convention he would have preferred a direct endorsement of prohibition as a policy, but in the interest of harmony would not even submit a minority report. Governor Ritchie of Maryland, countered that for his part he was willing to take the committee plank even though he preferred local option to federal prohibition. Senator Glass of Virginia, a dry leader and author of the plank, pointed out that it was so worded that the party nominee would have to be bound by it regardless of his personal beliefs.

Then, in less time than it takes to tell it, the committee report was adopted with a crashing of chorus of approval and only a few scattered "no's." The only other part of the Democratic declaration of principles to make serious trouble in committee was the farm plank. As finally brought in and adopted, it pledges the party to take immediate and effective steps to deal with the problem of farm surpluses and the rehabilitation of agriculture generally. Some party leaders believe that Governor Smith will make a more detailed announcement on this subject in the campaign. Leaders on Platform A long program of nominating and seconding speeches preceded consideration of the platform on the convention floor, and even after the platform was approved and the nomination made to the tune of a long and loud demonstration, the convention stavprt nn un til well after midnight hearing exhorta tions to oattie. Besides Senator Reed, John W.

Davis, the party nominee four year? ago, was brought to the convention platform. He told the cheering delegates that the call of the party in 1928 was harmony under the leadership of Smith. In the final tabulation" of the vote by which the New Yorker was chosen, only five states appear as having failed to give the leader at least a part of their support, and one of them was Reed's own state of Missouri, which was blocked bv convention mips when it sought to turn the bandwagon move ment to bmith into a nomination by acclamation. The others were Florida, Georgia.

It really was Ohio that consummated the nomination. When the first call of the roll had been completed, Smith's total stood at 724 2-3, or nine short of the number needed to nominate. But having paid their tribute to their, respective favorite sons, a half dozen states were ready to change their votes and get aboard the bandwagon. For several minutes a presidential nomination hung in the air, while delegation chairman from all sections of the hall tried to shout each other down in their rival attempts to be first to switch to Smith: rha irmon Meeker of Ohio, standing on his chair in the right center of the delegate section, won out and cast for the New York governor 44 Ohio votes, where he had had but one on the initial roll call.
