Uf\--Fol lowing a special night session fo the presentation of closing argu merits,- a district court jury of 1 men today had under consideration two charges, conspiracy and cheat ing" by false pretenses, for whlc. John B. Stever, 64 year old Falrfieli ·livestock dealer, went on trial her April 1. Stever is specifically accused o conspiring to defraud WUmer K Gilkerson and Clarence L. Strode Lewlstown, HI., farmers, who cam here April 21, 1930, and purchaser 53 head of Hereford cattle from th defendant's deceased ' b r o t h e r George F. Stever. ·· Stever's defense* was that he a no- time had ah equity in the stoc] · and that he was never apprised o any dissatisfaction with the deal on the part of the Illinois men. Gilkerson and Strode.both testl fied during the trial that the oattl they bought' were unbranded am ' dark red, whereas the slock the; were delivered were · a yellowisi color, branded, Inferior in quality and weighed 200 to 250 pounds les. than-those they were shown here. The jury was still out at noon today and there were no indication as to when it would reach a dec! sion. LONGWORTH WAS STRICT PARTY MAN (Continued From Pago 1). tion in private life as a man of cul ture and accomplishments. His matrimonial alliance unques tionably was a grea^ help to him He might ultimately have done as \vell-for himself even had he not been known as Colonel Roosevelt's son-in-law, but that gave him distinction, and at least smoothed his road for him. People knew who he was at any rate, the instant he was mentioned, which is far from being 1 the case with the average mere congressman--anyhow, not until he has served a much longer probationary period than Longworth at the time of his marriage to "Princess Alice." * * * ·THAT assuredly was the main con- 1 sideratlon for his selection \ to fill the speaker's chair in the house of representatives. He had no especial claim to it otherwise--but he was advertised. Advertised as ·what? Why, as Theodore Roosevelt's son-in-law. Aside from that, it i3 true that he had to have the necessary qualifications. He did have them. His abilities were good. He 'possessed poise and folk liked .him. .is-He. proved - · to have courage also. One-man rule had collapsed in the house of representatives thru having been overdone by Uncle Joe Cannon, and the G. O. P. was engaged in the task of rebuilding control on a group basis. It was by a process of trial and error CAROL'S DICTATOR? MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE APRIL 11 1931 Resignation of the cabinet ol Premier George Miroescu has paved the way for Nicholas Titulesou, Rumanian minister to Great Britain, to become the new premier. When King Carol refused to make an appointment ..which the ' premier requested the. entire cabinet resigned. Tirulescu above. ·'' NICHOLAS 'LONGWORTH that it was established in the hands of the ·triumvirate consisting of Speaker Longworth, Colonel John Q. Tllson as majority floor leader and Chairman Bertrand Snell of the rules committee; Longworth fulfilled his part in excellent diplomatic 1 style. He made the most outrageous rulings, completely muzzling the minority, with a g-enial ruthlessness which offended 'not even the victims: They howled at being flimflammed, certainly, but they never blamed Longworth--only the system. * * » ·THE Ohioan had the nerve to defy ·I Presidents Coolidge and Hoover on occasion--when he considered that their policies were to the general disadvantage of the party. He was a smooth "proposition" thru- out--not great hy any means, bul efficient, partisanly serviceable and, according to his lights, a patriotic lawmaker and manager. Maybe Lougworth lacked the initiative to lord it lone handedly over the representatives as Czar Reed and Uncle Joe did, but he was made to order to function in the speaker's chair as part of the oligarchy which ruled the house in hia time. CLAIM FILIBUSTER ON TAX MEASURES (Continued From tage 1). Senator Doran attacked the call , contending it had been signed by several members not in the city. Senator Wilson then filed another call signed by the some number, all of whom were present The parliamentary mixup arose when Lieutenant Governor McFarlane ruled on a motion of Senator G. W. ' Patterson, Kossuth, that a two-thirds vote was necessary to Music for the AMERICAN LEGION'S OLDTIME DANCE Saturday Night, April 11 Will Be By Merle Sims' Orchestra From Albert Lea The announcement that Kelly's orchestra would play is in error excuse absent members. Clark o Linn and others contended that i required a majority vote and, afte a maze of points of order had been cleared away, Doran appealed from the ruling- of the chair and was 'su's tained, 24.to 17. Senator Clark of Linn later filec a motion to amend the senate rule to make, only a majority vote nee essary. The motion was laid ove for a day. Calls It Stalling Clark charged that if the two thirds ruling were adhered to a small number of senators coule hold tfi action on the income tax bill indefinitely. He pointed ou that Senator Clyde Topping, chairman of'the third senate group of :he conference committee, had left 'or his home at Burlington for the week-end. "If the senator from Des Mbines itays in Burlington for a week, are we going to wait?" he asked. "This is stalling,'? he continued, ''and every one knows it." He added that It "seems strange we can't get a committee which will accomplish something." While the senate was in the midst of its debate the names of the house members of the new committee were announced. Those appointed by Speaker Francis Johnson were Representatives Hopkins, Berry, Van Wert, Bonnstetter and Roe. The motion to adjourn.until Monday" morning was put by Senator W. A. Clark, Marion. It was adopted, 21 to 18. Petition Circulated Meanwhile house friends of the income tax started the circulation of petitions among the members asking the president of the senate to appoint a conference committee which would submit a report to allow the senate to act on the income tax bill unencumbered by the county assessor amendment. It is proposed to present the signed petition Monday. The petition in full follows: "Whereas, the people of Iowa by an overwhelming vote at the primary and general election have expressed themselves in favor of a state income tax both on individuals and corporations, and "Whereas, tbe house with decisive vote has on two occasions rejected the county assessor bill, and "Whereas, the Iowa senate^ has not yet voted on the question of the enactment of an income tax bill without having the county assessors' bill attached to it. 5 Measures Approved "Be it therefore resolved, that the .president of the senate be re"quested to appoint a' conference committee which will submit a report allowing the senate to decide whether or not the income tax bill, unencumbered by the county asses sor amendment, shall be passed." ' The senate approved five minor ·measures before adjourning. Among them was,the Hayes-Orr house bill requiring commercial fishermen who are residents of Iowa to file a 5250 bond and non-residents a $500 bond. Another measure approved was the house cities and towns committee bill creating a park force in cities of 125,000 or more. The house yesterday passed the biennial appropriations bill after rejecting a motion to deny funds to pay the legislative expense accour-ts. ' .The house today, by a vote of 71 to 6 passed the sterilization bill recommended by its sifting committee. The bill, in fact, makes workable a similar measure passed two years ago. It would permit the superintendents of state institutions to recommend sterilization for persons mentally deficient, but would necessitate approval by the state board of control. Court appeal from the decision of the board would be provided. The bill now goes to the senate.

'T feel strongly that the system Is fundamentally wrong," Pearson had written. Miss Lawther admitted that Pearson and the finance committee drew apart but said the reason for his departure was to accept the presidency of the University of Maryland. She termed it a compliment to Iowa that eastern states frequently came here for educational leaders. Chee!: Was Wrong. Part of the morning's testimony concerned statements made previously by Lewis Maske, o.an Iowa City truck driver, tHat' he split a check ; for $22.50 for university labor with Charles Brown, a university foreman.

Gasoline Reduction Does Not Effect Tank Wagon Prices Here A 1 cent reduction of gasoline prices at Standard Oil company service stations went into effect Saturday morning in the Mason City territory. This reduction does not apply to the tank wagon price, which remains the same. Standard Oil company also announces a drastic change in mar- ke!(ing policy.

It will be sold 2 cents a gallon below the regular grade and 5 cents a gallon below premium brands. The price in Mason City will be 12.5 cents a gallon at service station and tank wagon, including 3 cents tax. Stock has been ordered for Mason City, which should arrive about the middle of next week, to be placed on the market at that time. Commenting on the Standard Oil company's action, Edward G.
