Lin<lberi ^li landed in .Mexico City yesterday at 2:39. Just one minute' later, at 2:-10. there flashed Into the Register of- tlce over its special leased wire the message "}..indbergh Landed." .And then for an hour longer came the story in detail of his great fligbt, of his delirious reception. .Mupplemented-' by stories of the way the news Was received in Washington and Detroit and Paris. .\nd then the Ri?glxSter went to press at the usual time with what was mo .«t interesting news in the world for that da .v fully covered. Incidentally it was the only paper circulated in lola yesterday which did-^cover this news-.'' "Those who depended on other papers went to bed unlder ,'.he .impression that Lindbergh was lost and that some dire calaiuit>-^ probably had befallen .'him.—unless they called dp the Register and found out the truth'. However, there evidently were not many who did not get the Register, Xs early as noon yesterday t< lephone Inquiries began, cmning in to this office asking for newsi of "Llndy." and they kept doming until the paper went to press, showing how keen and widiespread was the anxiety and interest. But after the Register went to press and had been dlHtrlhu 'ed jr.ST O.VE jinquiry came by telephone asking if Lindbergh had landed' Everybody else had found it out from the Register. i i '• But wljat a wonderful world it is in which we live when an event whl<-h happened at 2-39 in Mexico City can be reported in a newspaper which is upon the! streets of lola at 4 o'clock, an hodr aifd twouty-one minutes later: called to the attentidn of Presii dent Coolidge before '^publication,' The president, said Hearst, thought the charges made were serious, but refused to believe that : the money ever had reached the, ..senators named. .Mr, Hearst said he had paid in all about $15,000 or $16,000 in securing the papers for publication. He-related at some length the. circumstances surrounding their procurement. AJsked whether he had any evidence that any senator­ ceived any of the "slush fund," he replied in the negative and then said his own opinion was that - no such payments were made. Mr. Hearst said his agents informed him careful attempts to make certain, of the authenticity of the documents had been made, and that statements of &Iex^aA officials that they were forgeries wet^e untrue. "Did you learn of grammatical errors In the documents?" "Yes. but I am informed that is not unusual. ; as government clerks are often not graduates of higlk schools in Mexico." "Why didn't you seek to fiod^ .Vo," .Mr., Hearst repile<l. "I have no evidence nor do I believe they did get the money." He .Maid in all he paid about $15,0i)0 or $16,000 for the documents. Replying to - Senator Robinson, Democrat, Arkan,sas, Hearst said he thought he owned .some .large interests in Mexico, mines and ranches; He did not recall the names or location 'of the mines. Only' one was good, he said. Explaining further how he got the documents, Hearst said: "This man I have named to you comipunicated information that these documents were available Indicating unwarranted interference,- He gave this word to Edward Clark, manager of my mother's estate. Finally he said that for expenditure of $1,000 or $2,000 he cpuld get copies of the documents relating'to the United States senate. This man never said he =had seen them. : "Later. I authorized expenditure ht: alraut $1,000. That was in April of this year." ' ; Prodnced Documentii:. This secret man and John Page, a Hearst reporter, produced about ten documents, Hearst 'said.. . "They were ' original documents and seemed of gr^at importance," he declared. "They said they had made every effort to determine their authenticity. "They - said they had submitted the • ilocuments to Ambassador Sheffield;and to the counsellor of the embassy and had been' unabl^ to fipd anything wrong. "They said the persons who delivered them from the archires bureau were leave Mexico and, probably would bring other docaments with them.

Dec. 1.5, (AP)—The .Nationalist government today hand ed the soviet consul general ,at Simnghai his passports. He was requested to leave the Xationalist territory within a week. Tlie passports were given the soviet envoy by Quo Tai-Chi. Nationalist vice-iniiiister of foreign affairs.' The action" was in line .with the recently announced policy of the Nationalists under Chaiang Kair Shek to remove alleged Russian influence Jn Chnese affairs. In addition to severing diplomatic relations the Nationalists aisc broke off commercial relation^, demanding the closure of Russian commercial agencies including tht Russian State Balbank and ^ the volunteer fleet. ' Quo Tai-Chi, in issuing the request to the Russians to leave Nationalist territory, was following instructions Issued by the Nanking Nationalist govfernment. Explaining its action, the Nan­ king government In its official mandate said: Red I^paganddl "The Nanking government; has been informed the'soviet consulates and commercial, agencies in Na- tionalikt territory long has been used as headquarters for Red propaganda and as asylums for communists. Exposure of these facts thus far has been withheld in view of the formal relations existing between China and Rlissla. "December 11, in; Canton, an lip- rising took place, culminating in the forcible occupation of -the city by comiiiunista^iwho cut off communications. burneA, plundered massacred and murdered throughout the city. This was the result of communists using the Canton- Russian consulate as'a base to direct operations. "It l-s fearted that similar occurrences will take place elsewhere Such things can no longer be tolerated and, therefore, the recogni-i tion afforded the Union of Socialist Soviet Republics s terminated."
