UP}-- The testimony, in the suit of George Adair Greene Lougley, contested the right of the widow of the late Albert W. Longley to the full share of his · 51,000,000 estate, reached "into var- I .led channels yesterday. Mrs. Mary Caroline Longley, third wife, who charges that George is either a half brother of the first Mrs. Longley who died in 1927, or an imposter, Introduced Mrs. Belva Branson of .West Branch, Iowa, who had served as a maid in the California home of the Longleys in 192i. -She testified that she had once heard Longley remark: "I never was privileged to have children."

DICTATORSHIP OF SPAIN IS FALLEN .

The loss of support of the strong liberal group headed by De Romanones therefore left the government with little backing with which to proceed. Crisis-Shot Grave. : In view of growing republican agitation," the depressed state of tha Spanish currency and increasing internal dissatisfaction, the crisis was viewed here as most grave, and ont in which the throne itself is threatened. , It was not certain whether a new cabinet could be put together today or would require several days.

He fought so hard that altho it was evident he could not win outright, the outlook was that he would force an extra session of congress, which ' the administration was most anxious to avoid. Hence its offer of a compromise. · * * . s THE COMPROMISE proposed pro- 1 vided for a 520,000,000 instead of a $25,000,000 allowance, with an implied promise of the use " of the money to,buy food for humans, but no explicit statement in the legislation to that effect. · Submitted in congress, it immediately met with opposition. Senator La Follette of Wisconsin called it "a face-saving arrangement." Senator Wheeler of Montana described it as "discreditable alike to the president and tho 'senate/?';,, Representative Tflman B. Parks, from Senator Robinson's own state o f Arkansas, termed it "a shjim and a fraud." .Representative Fiorello, H. La Guardia, hailing f r o m Manhattan island, bitterly denounced it for making no allowance- at all to feed the cities' unemployed, whose need, he asserted, is as dire as the farmers'. ' · Senator Robinson, however, agreed to it--not enthusiastically, yet he was acquiescent. It seems strange he did riot realize that, as a presidential candidate, he would need urban as well as rural supoprt, and read a warning in Representative La Guardia's words, if not in Senator La Follette's, Senator Wheeler's and Representative Parks'. But that was not all of it. * * * DY PROFESSION Senator Robin^ son is a lawyer, a member of the Little Rock firm of Robinson, House and Moses. Among tftese associates' clients are the Harvey C. Couch power, railroad, banking and many other large interests in Arkansas, Lopis- iana and Mississippi., Mr. Couch, himself, while not in politics, often lends Himself to public movements in behalf of the section he is so active in developing. He was Arkansas food administrator during the World war, had charge of state food relief during the Mississippi valley inundation of 1927, and is chairman of drought aid in the afflicated commonwealth at present. Having been frequently in contact with President Hoover before, it was natural for him to visit the white house in the course of the emergency of today, and if, as reported, he suggested to the presi- of the" comprise" above referred to, there was no reason why he should not have done so. It may not be true that he did, but it is quite widely believed and Certainly there is no harm in believing it. * * * * TO SUMMARIZE:-^ It is absolutely o. k. for Senator Robinson to be associated with Robinson, House and Moses; equally so for Robinson, House and Moaes to be lawyers for the H. C. CoucH power and other interests; perfectly proper for H. C. Couch to have suggested (if he did suggest) the much- discuascd drought relief compromise to President Hoover--and undoubtedly Senator Robinson used nothing but his best, unbiased judgment in deciding 1 that it was o good, compromise to accept, even tho his acceptance of it surprised a great many folk. Nevertheless, politicians do link such circumstances together in so uncharitable a fashion that It makes them wonder whether the senator has not seriously injured whatever presidential chances he may have had.
