DENIES BRITAIN WILL SOON BE PUT ON RATION SYSTEM LONDON, Jan 29 The statement made at Leicester last night by William C. Anderson, Labor member of Parliament, that the United Kingdom would at an early date be put under a ration system, created much discussion today and there were rumors that the Royal Automobile Club, which the Government has requisitioned, was intended as headquarters for the distribution of food tickets. Mr Anderson is a member of the Government food prices committee, hence his statement gained credence. Lord Devtmport, the food controller, however, tpnight issued the following: "The statement made by Mr Anderson to the effect that the population of the country shortly would be put under a ratiQn system is unauthorized and incorrect.

In what promises to be a long legal battle over methods pursued by the Interstate Commerce Commission in determining the physical valuation of railroad properties throughout the United States, was made today in a hearing on the commissions findings in the case of the Atlanta, Birmingham & ial Atlantic and the Texas Midland Railways. Counsel devoted virtually the entire day to the first two of 41 points of contention raised. Sweeping charges were made that tlie commission failed to obey the instructions of the law in making valuations and failed to include a great many items which it should have included. W'hether trackage rights of a railroad over connecting lines should bo included and, if so, at what figure, was one of the points debated, counsel for the Texas Midland declaring that 14 miles in the roads main line had been omitted because the road did not own the property outright, but merely had leased trackage rights over this stretch. Counsel for the four railroad brotherhoods announced that he wished to present "some general theories, but was advised by Chairman Meyer that discussion- would be limited to the detailed technical points under consideration. The attorney said he probably would have something to say when the question of railroad-owned lands was reached. ,, Vhe hearing probably will last a week or more. It is planned to have witnesses testify later In the week. NOT WIFE DESERTER Man Who Joins the Army Innocent of the Offense, According to Kansas City Court KANSAS CITY, Jan 9 A husband who joins the Army is not thereby guilty of wife desertion, it was ruled in the Circuit Court today when Arthur L. Campbell, a detective and National Guardsman, was released on a writ of habeas corpus. He was under arrest on a fugitive warrant from Cincinnati, charging him with wife abandonment. Campbells defense was that 'he enlisted for service on the Mexican border, and that his wife left here while he was with his regiment.

PRISON PROBLEM SET BY POMEROY Coniluned From the First Pace. noon until yesterday morning to consider the sltuatibn, and as 'he still remained obdurate, there was no other recourse for Warden Allen but to order him confined in the punishment cell for the sake of discipline. Pomeroy accepted the punishment like a stoic. Fine Poinj in Prison Practic Warden Allen is not disposed to be harsh with the aged prisoner, though he must enforce the rules if he is to preserve discipline. His visit to the State House was to discuss the case in all ?ts phases and to get a ruling, possibly, upon how far he should proceed in punishing Pomeroy. The commitment of Jesse Pomeroy te solitary confinement, even though it is "light solitary, has raised a fine point of distinction. By the act of the Executive Council, which was sanctioned by the Governor, Pomeroys sentence was amended to the extent of his being removed, from "solitary for all time. Of course Pomeroy is subject to the rules, just as are the other prisoners, and if he transgresses or disobeys them, he is liable to punishment, which means incarceration in the punishment block. However, if Jesse persists in his declaration that he will not accept the new sentence, that he will not work, that he will not obey the rules and Pomeroy has time and again given evidence of his obstinate nature it is problematical how much of the remainder of his life he will spent in Fort Russell. Governors Motives The letter which Pomeroy wrote to Gov McCall after he had learned that his sentence had been commuted reached the Governor yesterday, and in it Pomeroy explains in part why he will not accept the new sentence. In a word, he contends that since he did not petition that his' Bentenc'e of solitary imprisonment at hard labor to "imprisonment for life, he holds it his right to decline the commutation. . . After he read the communication from the noted prisoner Gov McCall made the following statement: "Solitary imprisonment for life is inhuman, and, so far as I know, wholly without precedent. Upon being informed that such a sentence existed and was being enforced in the case of Jesse Pomeroy, with the consent of the Council, whom I asked to investi- ?ate the case, I commuted the sentence rom solitary imprisonment at hard labor to imprisonment. "I felt that the action I took was necessary, not alone in the interests of Pomeroy, but for the sake of the Commonwealth. Letter From Pomeroy's Counsel In addition to the letter from Pomeroy, Gov McCall also received a communication from Edwin L. Weiscopf, counsel for the prisoner, expressing regret for Pomeroys attitude. "In view of the unaccountable attitude, writes Mr Weisco-pf, "assumed by Jesse H. Pomeroy, for whom I have appeared, with reference to the clemency bo humanely extended by you, I wish to express my sincere thanks, appreciation and gratitude in his behalf for the opportunity granted him to prove that it is not unsafe for him to mingle with and receive the same privileges as his fellow prisoners, and I feel sure that after careful deliberation he will do all he can to prove himself worthy of your interest and clemency. "I wish also to state at this time that any communication he may haye forwarded to you, and which does not express a like spirit of gratitude, is sent without my approval and contrary to my advice and as the result, perhaps, of a slight disappointment in not having obtained a full pardon, and I feel sure that upon reconsidering matters he will address you in a more fitting communication. Ordered Out for Exercise Warden Allen told the State House newspaper men ,that Pomeroy was not even asked yesterday morning to perform light work, but was merely ordered into the yard for exercise and declined to obey on the ground that he does not recognize the validity of the commutation of his sentence. "He is not in a dungeoq," said Warden Allen. "There is light in his cell. He is alone, to be sure, with nothing to do but think. He sees his guard when he comes to bring him his food, "Under the old system, a prisoner subjected to this form of discipline used to have one meal a day and that was tread and water. Fomeroy had his regular breakfast this mortiing and he will probably have it tomorrow morning. Tonight he will be -given bread and water, it is likely. Warden Allen would not say how long Pomeroy was to be kept where he is now or what terms, if any, are to be imposed as a condition of a change. Pomeroys predicament, the warden explained, is the regular sequence, under the prison rules, of his refusal to obey the orders of the warden. CONVINCED ITS A MISTAKE Ex-Lieut Gov Barry Fears Some One Will Be Hurt if Jesse Pomeroy Is Allowed Among Fellows Ex-Lieut Gov Edward P. Barry, who knew Jesse Pomeroy' as a boy in South Boston and who while in the Governors Council made a careful study of the famouB life prisoner, yesterday made public a statement in which he expressed-lively fears from any modification of the mans imprisonment. "Unless Gov McCall and the Council rescind their well-meaning but unfortunate action immediately, said Ex-Lieut Gov Barry, "somebody is going to get hurt. Either Pomeroy will get one of his fellow-prisoners, or they will get him before he has a chance to. "Pomeroy is a menace, and he will be to the end of his days. I am convinced that a big mistake has been made in extending these new privileges to Pomeroy. After pointing out the advantages which Pomeroy enjoyed during his confinement and offering as proof that he had received the best medical care the fact that he has never had a serious illness, the ex-Lieutenant Governor concludes: "Keep him there. Give him the privilege of attending chapel under guard to see if religion can find a spark of manhood in him. Nothing else has even been able to detect a likable trait in his character. Dr L. Vernon Briggs, the alienist, contends that Warden Alien is wrong in punishing Pomeroy for his refusal to accept the privilege of mingling with his fellow prisoners, after an isolation of 40 years, to which he had become accustomed. "Pomeroy is a typical degenerate, said Dr Briggs. "He is of the defective, delinquent type. We have them in our prisons, reformatories and insane hospitals. When they are released from prison they usually come back. They have no moral responsibility in their makeup. "They dont belong in either our prisons, reformatories or insane hospitals. They upset discipline, just as Pomeroy is doing now. They should be segregated and given special education and vocational training. "Mr Randall, the former chairman of the Prison Commission, endeavored to have the Legislature provide for such segregation, and Col Adams, his successor, is in favor of the same plan. Col Adams, I know, feels that prisoners of the Pomeroy type should not be even on the grounds of a prison. "The Governor and Council, I am sure, felt that they were doing a kindness to Pomeroy by releasing him from the confinement te had been in for more than 40 years, but it is a mistaken kindness. "It is mistaken because after Pomeroy has been for so . many years unaccustomed to the society of his fellow-men, it is cruel to suddenly request him to go out and mingle with them. "To punish Pomeroy because he refuses to accept his release is wrong. You cant get anything by punishing such men. They are childish. EARL OF CROMER DEAD Famous Administrator Put Bankrupt Egypt on Paying Basis Ruled Almost as Emperor . I.ONDON, Jan 29 Evelyn Baring, first Earl of Cromer, former Britis'h agent and Consul General in Egypt, died suddenly this evening. He had been ill for some time. The Earl of Cromer was born in 1841, In 1880 he was made a financial member of the Council of India. His successful work there led to his appointment in 18S3 as British agent and Consul General 'in Egypt, lie resigned in 1907 owing to ill-health. It was said Earl Cromers sway in Egypt had been almost as absolute as that of an Emperor. It was called a record of genius in administration. In bankrupt Egypt he did wonders in deducing taxation to a minimum, abolishing forced labor and placing the country on a paying basis. In 1892 he was raised to the peerage and in 1901 was made an Earl. One of his principal works In Egypt was the Irrigation system, considered a model of the world. In July of last year he was appointed chairman of a commision to investigate the Dardanelles campaign.

" OFFICIAL FLAG OF THE CITY OF BOSTON ADOPTED YESTERDAY BY THE COUNCIL. After a delay of more than three years the City Council yesterday adopted officially the municipal flag and passed orders governing its use. The flag was first used in the Columbus Day celebration in 1913 and has been used on holidays since then, but it was officially adopted. Hereafter it will be flown daily from the top of City Hall and on holidays and other special occasions it will be displayed on Boston Com-j moti and the other municipal buildings. Civic organizations will be allowed to use the flag for celebrations on applica WHITE GALLS LAWSON CHARGES ROMANCE Continued From the First Page. so mtich was suggested that his examination pointed to a possible recalling of Mr Lawson for a further elucidation of his statements regarding the German Ambassador. It was shown that Mr Lawson, while holding frequent conferences with Mr White, sought an introduction to the Count; but Mr White could not be brought to acknowledge that he knew of any meeting between them taking place. This, however, was at least a year and a half ago, the witness said. White Evidently III at Ea?e As Mr Lawson had stated on the stand that he had heard Count von Bernstorff nas a beneficiary in the "leak market, much interest was felt today in Mr White whfen he identified himself as a friend of the Count, and also as a former confidant of Mr Lawsons, acknowledging that he had accomplished the difficult feat of visiting Mr Lawson weekly at his hotel here for some weeks befort the market broke on the advance news of the peace note of Dec 20. Mr White came to the stand evidently ill at ease, late in the afternoon. He had been called at the opening of the afternoon session, but had not responded. It then developed that by an oversight no notice had been sent him that he was wanted at that time. , Telephoning developed the fact that he was on his way down town from his house. The committee ordered a recess and waited until he arrived, which was at about 4 oclock. The witness came into the hearing room with a determined and worried air. He is stockily built, with a long head set on a thick neck, a double chin, a pointed moustache and the general appearance of a German civil official. Frequently With Bernstorff His examination, 'which began forthwith, afforded an excellent example of finesse with which Mr Whipple the works in handling an unwilling witness. Beginning in his usual soft manner, Mr Whipple asked the wtness for some details about his business. Mr White said he was president of White & Co, a private corporation, in the bond business at 11 Fine st. He lived in the same apartment house uptown with Mr Fisk, who owned the building, but his acquaintance with Mr Fisk was purely a formal one. He had known Thomas W'. Lawson two or three years. Their acquaintance was a social one. "That is, he has entertained you at his house, and you have entertained him at yours? asked Mr Whipple. The witness replied that he had never been to Mr Lawsons home In Massachusetts; he only knew where he lived. Mr Lawson may have called once at his home. He called for me; we were going to dinner together, said Mr White. Mr White admitted that he was frequently in the company of both the German Ambassador, who is a friend of some years standing, and Mr Lawson, in New York, in the weeks preceding the leak, but he dodged, a number of questions as to whom, among his market friends, he introduced to the Ambassador. White Cant Remember The witness could not remember the subject of anv of the . many conversations he had with Mr Lawson, They were general, he said, and chiefly on market matterr. . He could not recall when he first met Mr Lawson or where or how he came t call on him weekly at the Hotel Belmont in this city, tor two or three months. Mr Whipple strove hard with the witness and maintained perfect good humor throughout the examination. At times he raised a laugh, which eased somewhat the tension in the crowded hearing room. Once, when asked what Mr Lawson said to Mr White,, when they discussed the Washington hearing at which , Mr Lawson made his so-called, revelations, the witness said: "He spoke volumes. There were explosions, fireworks. "Cant you give us one little- pin-wheel? asked Mr Whipple. The witness cduld not. He could remember no single statement made at this time or any other time by Mr Lawson, except those which Mr Lawson made on the stand. This information was brought out slowly,, in reply to many questions, the witness volunteering nothing. Saw Lawson Every Week ' Mr White had seen more of Mr Law- tion. The Council voted that the use of the flag for commercial purposes should be punishable by a fli.e of not more than $20. , The flag will be five feet by threeand one-half feet and will comprise a background of continental blue with the city seal in continental buff in the center. For use on special occasions, such as parade reviews, there will be a special silk flag- of the same design, but it will also have a buff fringe." On the reverse side will 'be the historic Tri Mountain design. son in the last year than before. In October, November and December he had 'seen' him as often as once a week, lnd perhaps twice, in New York. Mr Whipple wanted to know if these were social meetings. Mr White thought they were, though the two' had discussed the European war and subjects of interest to men m the market, at almost every meeting. The meetings were chiefly at Mr Law-sons rooms in the Belmont Hotel. Did you try to interest Mr Lawson in the Federal Chemical Company? He made some suggestions about making a market for its securities, replied 'Mr' White. Once the. witness met Mr Lawson at White & Cos office. Mr Lawson was pretty constantly in New York in October, November and December, was he not? . I could not say with any accuracy. I saw him once a week'br so. Mr White Stated that he made no particular appointments to meet Mr Lawson. Once they dined together at Delmonico's. Mr Lawson was the host. Sought Lawson's Opinion Was there a discussion of the Stock Market "I was much ampsed and interested by his reminiscences. Yes, reminiscences; but was anything said reflecting on possible future events in the maiket? I sought his opinions, on the war and on general market conditions. Were other people present at this dinner? I dont remember. There might have been. "I wish you would think on this question, Mr White, said Mr Whipple, pur-suasiVely. "Was there anyone else at that dinner? Mr Lawsons secretary was sometimes there. I do not recall his name. "Will you say there was no one eisp there? "I dont recall any one. "Is your recollection sufficiently clear for you to say that there was not anyone else there? The witness repeated his former answer. He was next asked to state how long his social calls on Mr Lawson lasted. He could not fix their length, even Approximately. - Had the Lawson Habit When asked how it happened that he visited Mr Lawson weekly, the witness declared that he did not understand what his interrogator meant. How did these visits start? They seem to have got to be sort of a habit with you, said Mr Whipple with a genial smile. How did you get the habit? I cant say aS to that, replied Mr White, "except to analyze. "Excuse me for Interrupting, said Mr Whipple. "How did you get the habit? ' "I had .the habit. "It was merely by chapce you acquired it? Had you any other business with Mr Lawson than to converse with him? "We had discussed business matters tho possibility of interesting him in securities." "Did you interest him? "No, sir. s Was there discussion as to money to be made in the 'Stock. Market? The witness asked to have the, question read to him, and this being done, he made no direct answer. , "Did you talk with him about anybody else going into the market with him? No, sir. The answer was given in a voice audible only to persons near the witness. "That s correct? "Yes, sir. There was some talk about tho advertising for Federal Chemical, the witness admitted. Met in Contents Office Mr White could recall no interview with Mr Lawson when others were present. "I wish you would, said Mr Whipple, coaxinfely. "It may be of kome importance. If I dont interrupt your thought, may I ask whether you did not introduce him to some other person? I once saw him -With Mr Content, replied the witness. "But .Mr Content is Mr Law'sons broker,- is -he not? said Mr Whipple in a surprised tone. -The, witness finally admitted that he had been present at Mr -Content's ofiice i when Mr Lawson and Mr Content also were there. He could not recall the j jk date, it was in December. "Was it before or after the German 1 Emperor had spoken with regard to j peace?" - - - The w itness could not tell as to that. 1 He thought it was about the middle of the month. It might have been about the time of the German Emperors peace proposal. , i ."Did you-three talk about it? rl dont think we did.- But - you have said that yobr usual topic Qf conversation with Mr Lawson was about the war and the market, yet none of you mentioned this subject then? "No, sir, I nave no recollection of our mentioning that subject. I have a genera recollection that our talk bad to do wnh.the prevailing. market. Friend of Count von Bernstorff The wjtness could not recall anything that was said by any one of the trio. Was the business on which you went to see Mr Content overlooked? "I dont remember.

I also know Ambassador Naon of Argentina. Did you entertain Count von Bern-1 storff in New York in October, Novem- ber or December?" , "I dont recall the dates.

Possibly in the confusion of being called to the stand to testify you may not remember all the facts, hi said. I want to know if you cannot recall ! the date on which Mr McSweeny asked i you to arange'the meeting. The witness replied that he could not fix the date closer than a year and a ' half ago, adding tjiat If he had intro- i dueed anyone and the introduction had I special significance, he would be likely j to remember it. i "You never heard that a meeting be- tween Count von Bernstorff Lawson took place?

It was then that Mr Lawson had indulged in fireworks. Doesnt Recall Talk With Lawson Mr White had read Mr Lawson's evidence, given at Washington, and declared that he never had such a conversation with Mr Fisk as Mr Lawson attributed t6 him. and did not recall mentioning Mr Fisks name .o' Mr Law-son.
