There Is a division both among the .Senators and the experts accompanying the committee as to thf probable approval by Congress of a high dam or a low dam. Agree ment Ih general that Congress will appropriate money for a low flood-control dam only, the divergence of views occurring as to whether, hav ing made an appropriation for flood control, Congress will further authorize the expenditure by private capital and by the States or municlpaltles of sufficient additional millions to increase the height of the dam to make power development available. The Senators, somewhat exhausted from their strenuous and dtiKty trip yesterday in Imperial Valley, ttnd along the main Imperial canal on both sides of the border, and having remained until after midnight yesterday In a hearing of Arizona's views of the Colorado Kituatlon, cut today's program in two.

GIRL'S DEATH LAID TO RITE OF REDSKINS Criminologist Says Clews Shaw Victim Sacrifice to Ancient Indian Tradition ht a. p. mout wmnj KVRKKA (CaU Nov. 1. The theory that Carmen Warner, 18-yrar-old girl found murdfred near here recently, may have been killed In accordance with sacrificial rites of an ancient Indian tradition by a descendant of the tribe was advanced by Br. K. C. Hein-rich. Berkeley crlminologh.-, who returned to Eureka today after visiting the place where tho young woman's body was found huMed. About 300 yards from the spot where the searchers uncovered the murdered body, Dr. Helnrich said he had found an ancient altar where the girl may have been sacrificed by the person who first shot and killed Miss Wagner's companion. Henry Sweet. "It is possible that a descendant of the Indians in the vicinity was a victim of a 'fiareback' to the old rcligfmis beliefs of his forefathers and he may have conceived the idea of sacrificing a young woman on the moss-covered altar," he de-cln red. Dr. Helnrich said that his theory had been strengthened by the fiict th;it growth on the trees at the altar had recently been disturbed by human hands. Lochinvar of Today Jailed Kidnaper as 1ST A. r.

Killing sixteen in that State M'DONALD HITS F0LLIES0F WAR (Continued from First Page) cern, though they would stoutly maintain that the national concern is the one thing they keep before them. In that plea they are right; the error lies in the fact that in foreign affairs democracies so rarely and Imperfectly show what that concern is. Diplomacy as an overspeclalUed profession living in a limited world of Its own making and working upon its own notions ot national honor, self-respect and prestige cannot in the end avoid war. Therefore it results that from time to time new ways of controlling foreign offices are proposed with the object of keeping them in touch with the popular psychology and the opinions of democracies and so severely to limit what in some States has become almost a sovereign authority of foreign offices, war offices or admiralties. The American system of treaty ratification by the Senate and discussion and consultation with the Foreign Relations Committee is with modifications necessary by reason of the upecial features of the American Constitution which are generally taken as a basis. Roughly what Is aimed at is a coin mltiee which will be consultative but which will leave the Foreign Secretary absolutely responsible for decisions and then reference to the Mouse of Commons of all treaties or Instruments Imposing obligations upon the country. To the outsider, at any rate, it does not appear as the American arrangement of absolute check could not work if America were more closely concerned with European politics with their give and take and necessity of making, not the best conceivable, but the best possible bargains. A two-thirds majority In a body which Is not responsible for negotiating but which Is possessed of the power to destroy would never worn in European conditions. OF SAME COMPLEXION Lord Bryce quite properly wrote when dtscusHlng the objections to the powers ot the Senate in treaty making: "The answer Is America, not Europe." Our European needs require. I think, that whatever be the authority which has the final power of ratification must be of the same political complexion as the responsible government; that ratifying authority must not be a body hostile to the government or independent of the government so as to take from the government its responsibilities, or, what Is much worse, leave the government with its responsibilities, but deprive it if the exercise of its will. Its function rather should be to exercise freedom of criticism and pressure In accordance with manifested public opinion. What is wanted Is something that will be an instrument in the hands of the constituencies i ather than In those of the political parties for the purpose of making the governments aware of the limits o their power to do Just what they like. That is the justification for the Foreign Relations Committee, which has found a place In the parliamentary machinery of every Important European state except our own. On general principles. It Is most desirable that foreign policy should not be revolutionized every time a government changes, but I have frequently pointed out that these principles are subject to many Important exceptions. Supposing, for instance, that a Liberal government were to succeed a Conservative ,one that had been pur-sulng'a policy of military alliance and had been taking on obligations which had allowed foreign states to pursue courses that must lead to war, it would be the duty of the new government to end such a polity. BAD EXAMPLE Then would arise the problem of how to handle such a situation and upon all that all that I s&-y in that the manner of doing It would distinguish an efflel)t from an Inefficient Foreign MVnlater. When the present government rame Into office It made changes for the sak of showing that It was a new government and that It did not share any of our progressive views, but that was a bad example which ought not to be copied. Had a consultative committee been In existence, some of those mistakes might have been avoided because such a committee, changing Its balance and views without changing its whole personnel, would tend to maintain just that amount of continuity which is good, while making alterations that are necessary to express the difference In outlook of the Incomers. Not onlf would the Foreiim Minister have to report his Intentions to It and thus be prevented from doing what was obviously reprehensible, but the advice it could alone. give from Its experience would be Invaluable to him Jn making up nis mtna as to a course of action. What we have to aim at is to secure for our foreign policy some Intelligence in public Interest and at the same time, while In no way weakening the responsibility of the Ministers and Cabinet, set up eome machinery which meets the fact that governments under democracies are not only responsible, but should also be representative. Of responsibility we hear much; of representation we hear little, but a democracy demands both. Self-government is not secured when the hand of external authority is removed from the people; 1 an official function and its staff rule people whom circumstances then compel to obey that people can hardly be termed self-governing. The powers of the American Senate could only be given In this country .to a body which creates a responsible government, but a Foreign Relations Committee might well be engrafted as an expedient to make the government representative as well as responsible. 'NEWSIE' TO SHARE WITH DUKE HEIRS Paper Vendor Named as One of Sixteen Relatives of Tobacco King IB? A. P. NIOHT WIRE) OKLAHOMA CITY, Nov. . James Buchanan Price, who sold newspapers on the campus of Duke University at Durham, N. C. last year, when James B. Duke, the late tobacco king, went there to participate In a dedicatory service, has been Informed by attorneys for the Duke estate that he is one of sixteen relatives who will participate in a 32,000,000 bequest from the Duke estate. Price, who is 69 years of age, lives here and supports himself by doing small jobs. He lost his last job in a restaurant ten days ago because of illness. I-jast year, after reading of the $40,000,000 endowment given by Duke to the university, Price managed to raise money for a railroad ticket, but when he reached Durham his funds were gone. He sold papers on the campus to meet his needs. Ho did not reveal himself to Mr. Duke and returned to Oklahoma City without his relative knowing he was there. SOVIET TO FARM OUT WAIF ARMY Hundreds of Thousands of Orphans Grave Menace in Russia Today fBT CARU; AT ASSOCIATED PRISS1 MOSCOW, Nov. 1. Soviet Russia has resorted to a novel method of solving its orphan problem. The Moscow soviet today decided to place two orphans in -Ci-h Peasant family In the villages, ftl-1'iting as compensation for their support either n small grant of Und or from 50 to 110 rubles monthly for each child. The children will be provided with clothing and given 10 rubles each for their further needs. Tbe local village Soviets will act as "foster fathers" for the orphans, making provision for their education along Communistic lines. Child vagrancy H one of the sorest problems with which the present-day Russia has to deal. All uer the country there are great hordes of homeless boys and girls w ho have swollen the ranks of vagrants In the cities and become a positive menace to societv. Official figures place the number of Juvenile vagrants at 300.000. Large cliies like Moscow, Leningrad.

H.) Nov. 1. The Exeter, Hampton and Amesbury Street Railway, which for a little over four and a half years has been operated by the town of Hampton, will suspend operation Saturday, November 7, a victim of the 111 effects of municipal ownership. The road was purchased In 1921 from a private corporation, for 176,000, a price which was quoted then as to Junk value. The money was floated on twenty and twenty-five-year bonds at 5 per cent. Whether $76,000 was the Junk value Is problematical and the concensus of ophnlon Is that It was considerably less. At the present time the junk value is known to have depreciated greatly owing to the increase In the cost of labor in the past several years. Also whereas in 19U1 some of the rails were such that tEey"could be used then for reservice rails, now they are fit only to be scrapped for junk. OPERATED AT LOSS During the first year that the road was in operation a total deficit of $7622.02 was incurred. Of this the towns of Exeter and Hampton Falls, which were served by the line, subsidized $2291 leaving Hampton to make up $5331.02. In 1922 the total deficit was $9416.40 with Exeter and Hampton Falls contributing $3500. The figures for 1923-24 shows the deficit steadily Increasing. The first year it reached $12,082.94 with the two adjoining towns appropriating $3000. In 1324 the deficit reached $12,761.74 with the subsidy $3500. These figures show a total deficit amounting to $41,883.10 up until December 31. 1924. The road has been managed by three trustees. H. Lester Tobey, Charles E. Greenman and Howard G. Lane. , OPINIONS REVISED At the time of purchasing the road In 1921 Howard G. Lane, treasurer oi .the trustees and a prominent citizen, was of the opinion that It could be operated by the town without loss. He was of the belief at that time that the corporation was carrying too much overhead In the matter of high-salaried officials. Now after over four years of experience Lane believes that ifthis was a fault of the corporation it is much more so of the municipal-owned road. One item that was paid out annually was $500 for expert advice from a railroad official of another State. Still another one ot the trustees declares that his experience has convinced him that no town or municipality should take over this electric road proposition un less in dire need of that form of transportation. In other words this same man, who five years ago was a great believer in nunlcipal ownership of railways, declares "Never unless as the last resort." With the exception of two new cars and some rolling stock purchased in 1923, the road has the same equipment as when taken over two years previous from the corporation. And in 1923 a second bond issue of $12,000 was floated, making a total bond issue of $88,000. AUTHOR TELLS STEEDS STORY (Continued from First Page) the strict Methodist training of the steel corporation head Is given in his refusal to continue matching $20 gold pieces for the fees of absentee members of the Board of directors. NO ADVANCE TIPS No relative of Gary nor any one of his employees. Miss Tarbell writes, has ever or ever will benefit by advance Information. His own son would not be "tipped off" to enable him to speculate profitably in the steel market by Gary, although he might be In possession of news and Information that would make such speculation profitable for friends or acquaintances. Miss Tarbell says that Mr. Gary so arranged It with the comptroller of the corporation that the quarterly financial reports of the company were not given out to anyone, not even himself, until they were placed before the board of directors at 3 o'clock, when the market had closed, and at whfch time they were also given out to the public. Miss Tarbell quotes Gary as saying: "As a matter of fact, I always thought this use of inside Information by directors, very common at the time, was akin to robbery of their own stockholders and I had no hesitation In making my disapproval of it so clear that everybody on the board would understand. They finally gave up trying to get Information from me, though In one case one of our directors went to our treasurer or comptroller to get It. But I was able to stop that. It was wrong In principle and set a bad example. How could we expect our officers and employees not to speculate if the members of the board did It?" Mr. Gary always Insisted that stockholders who attend the annual meetings, as they had a right to do, should not only be allowed to speak, but should be invited to do so.

T. NIGHT WlREl WASHINGTON, Nov. 1. Another posthumous contribution to the history of the World War, revealing details of Col. House's mysterious trip to Europe In 1916, is contained in a newly published volume of "The Life and Letters of Walter H. Page," war-time American Ambassador to London. The book, compiled by Burton J. Hendrick and published under copyright by Doubleday, Page & Co., discloses that Mr. Page objected strenuously to Col. House's proposal that the United States should suggest a peace conference on condition that "if Germany refused the proposal . the United States would go into the war on the side of the Allies." Mr. Page thought there were ample moral grounds for an American declaration of war against Germany, but he felt that to go in on the-basis of the House proposal would amount to trickery. The message brought to London by Col. House, as the emissary 'of President Wilson, more than a year before the United States actually did go to war, was quoted by Mr. Page In one of his memoranda, as follows: "The United States would like Great Britain to do whatever would help the United States to aid the Allies." ULTIMATUM TO GERMANY That was in January, 1916. Five weeks later, after visiting the rrench, Belgian and German capitals, the colonel returned to London with his plan for an American peace conference proposal with a virtual ultimatum to Germany attached. "Of course, as I' told House" wrote Page In February, 1916 nobody here would talk about peace, and if they did dare, nobody would dare accept the President's intervention. They no longer have confidence In the President. "House told me that we'd have a meeting on Monday Asqulth, Grey, Reading, Lloyd George, he and I. No, we won't. No member-of the government can afford to discuss any such subject." , Despite the Ambassador's refusal to be present, however, the meeting between House and the ranking- British statesmen was held a few days later. Foreign Min- ister Grey is quoted as saying to j House that "if it were known that we were meeting for the purpose ot discussing peace, every window In my house would be smashed," while Page himself said to the colonel half seriously, half good naturedly: "If the British public learns that this is going on, you will be lucky if you are not thrown Into the Thames." INDORSED BY GREY. Mr. Hendrick adds that, although nothing came of the plan, Grey definitely indorsed It and the others present at the meeting seemed generally favorable. The text of the Wilson-House plan recently was made public by Viscount Grey in his memoirs, with the observation that when this text was submitted to President Wilson he approved It with a single change. This change, Mr, Hendrick declares, was Insertion of the word: 'Probably." which weakened the force of the propo-1 sal at a time subsequent to its presentation by House in London. As amended by the President, the openinsr paragraph saidi "President Wilson was ready, on hearing from France and England to propose that a conference should be summoned to put an end to the war. Should the Allies accept this proposal, and should Germany refuse It. the United States would probably enter the j war against Germany." j PAGE REVELATIONS ' CONFIRMED BY BRITON Ft CABLE EXCLCSIVB DISPATCH) LONDON. Nov. 1. Admiral Sir Reginald Hall, head of the Intelligence service of the British Ad miralty during the war. confirmed , Ambassador Page's revelation that the famous telegram which announced the opening of Germany's "sink-wlthout-trace" submarine campaign In 1917 and Invited Mexico into an alliance against America, was captured by the British secret service and given by Lord Balfour to the American government. Admiral Hall said that the telegram was sent from Washington by Count Von Bernstorff, the German Ambassador. "We obtained It on the way. but not on American soil." he continued. "It was given to Ambassador Page In London, but Americans obtained the original coded telegram, and It was decoded in my office from the German con sular code. I cannot tell how we first obtained knowledge of the document, but that telegram was mainly Instrumental In bringing America into the war.

MUSSOLINI'S ARMY AGAIN TAKES ROME Greatest Fascisti Parade Celebrates Anniversary of March on Eternal City rBT CABLE KXCLL'StVE DISPATCH ROME, Nov. l.What was Indisputably the greatest Fascist parade ever seen In Rome since "the victory parade," of three years ago, was held here yesterday to celebrate the third anniversary of the Fascist march on Rome. Though the parade was limited to Fascisti of the Roman province, some 40,000 persons, - many of whom came many miles afoot, marched past Mussolini's office for four solid hours. The crowd collected to see the parade was the largest and most enthusiastic seen for a long time past. The Rome celebration of the Fascist revolution was delayed until yesterday as the. Fascisti here wished to hold it after the Premier's return from Milan. After today's parade had. marched past the grave of the unknown soldier, scores of thousands of Fascisti citizens who had congregated under Mussolini's windows In the spa-clous Piazza Colonna, called him by name for half an hour until the Premier, amidst deafening applause and wild scenea of enthusiasm, showed himself to the crowd oa the balcony of Plazzo Chlgl.

After a preliminary meeting of local chairmen here today, members of the Western General Chairmen's Association of the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen will convene tomorrow to formulate wage Increase demands totaling several million dollars. Peak wages of wap days are being considered. The Brotherhood, has a membership of 180,000 men distributed among 200 Class One roads. War-time wages were slashed about 12 per cent by order of the United States Railroad Labor Board. Demands of the trainmen, It la anticipated, will be followed by similar demands by the other train service brotherhoods. Including the switchmen's union. Shop men and mechanics also may seek ln- creases. The present contract with the roads and brofherhooda expires December 31. ? Delegates of the trainmen meeting in May voted to ask for an Increase in pay, but left the details of the matter to regional meetings, of which this is one. The Southern General Chairmen's Association will meet November 10 and the eastern organization November 17.
