II.—(A.P.)—A charge that Herbert Hoover "is credited" with owning oil and mining properties In Colombia nnd Mexico ha?? been vigorously made, accompanied by R sweeping denial. The allegation was sponsored by Henry Clay Hansbrough, once n republican senator from North Dakota, now a supporter of Governor Alfred E. Smith. With it he coupled R demand that Hoover withdraw from the presidential campaign and permit the selection of n republican candidate "who cannot be influenced in'handling our foreign relations." -The denial came from Henry J. Allen, director of publicity for the republican national committee. Late yesterday after being shown an advance copy of a speech prepared by Hambrough for delivery last night at Minneapolis, Allen sent a telegram to the former senator asserting that there was no foundation for such statements nnd declaring that they could "only be uttered for the purpose of gaining votes by deliberate lies." Speaks Anyway Undeterred, Hansborough went forward with his address at Minneapolis. Herbert Hoover, he said, "is credited with being the owner of 1.787,000 acres of oil producing land in the republic of Colombia" and of "even larger concessions" in Mexico. "In the event that it becomes necessary for ouf marines to go into those countries to protect American Interests," he continued, "they will, in fact, be giving their lives to protect the private property of the president of the United States or of those to whom he transferred it in order to run for president. • "Our delicate foreign relations'will not permit of presidential imperial- OF C.

Bedlam of Farewells. Westward with the setting sun the giant whaler, last of the vessels to leave American water, slipped through harbor channel last night amM a bedlam of farewells from whistling harbor craft and crowds that lined the piers. Modern communication methods made It possible for the commander to have farewell talks with his mother, Mrs. R. E. Byrd, in Winchester. Va., and his brother, Governor Harry Byrd, at Richmond, Va.

FOLLOWS THE VALLEY BEER BATTLE Six Very Carefully Selected Squads Sent To South Side of Chicago The last leave taking was a simple hand clasp, an exchange of steady looks and a few words. Then each turned to their jobs—Byrd's two or even three years of "filling in the blank spaces of the map," and his wife's the keeping of their Boston home for his return. A speed boat was pressed Into service by Commander Byrd to overtake the big whaler and ne was hauled to the deck over the stem which hung low in the water with the boat's 10,000 ton cargo. The Byrd expedition will establish a land base in the Antarctic from which the four planes being carried aouth by the Larsen will operate in mapping the icy wastes. A flight probably will be made over the south pole, but Byrd has said thia is only incidental to the chief purpose of the expedition. His last message before sailing waa that the expedition is not a race {or the pole. He said he would render all possible cooperation to Sir Hubert Wilklns. the Australian, who is planning on flying over the pole.

Oct. 11.—(U.P.)—John Stegc, deputy commissioner of detectives, sent six carefully selected | squads into the south side beer belt today on the strength of reports of widespread "mu&Ung in" by rival beer runners. "We are moving into the front lino trenches," Stcge said, "and we are going to stay." "Mulling in" is gangland's term for the process by which competitive beer syndicates invade each other's territory and force sales of their product on saloon ketpere. The disappearance of Joe Saltis, former dictator of beer distribution in one area on the south side and the break between Sc&rface Al Capone and Ralph Sheldon, Caponc's former lieutenant, has resulted in » general violation Of the borders which divided the territories of rival gangsters; Saltis disappeared after being sentenced to 60 days in jail for carrying a concealed weapon. Capone then ousted Sheldon and put Hugh McOovern in his place. Sheldon took his followers over to the O'Donnell gang and together they are said to have begun a campaign of "muscling in" throughout the Saltis territory. Resentment by loyal Saltis men over that invasion is believed responsible for the machine gun attack night before last on Spike O'Donnell. Spike showed up at police headquarters today and announced that he was "out to get Saltis whether the police can find him or not." He was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon.

Ger., Oct. 11. — (A.P.)—Graf Zeppelin, Germany's huge new dirigible, flew westward today at an average speed of 65 miles an hour with passengers and mail for America. Sixty persons were aboard—& crew of 40 and 20 passengers among them Lady Grace Drummond Hay of England. Dr. Hugo Eckener, builder and commander of the airship, hoped to bring the airship down at Lakehurst. N. j., come 5,100 miles away, Sunday morning. The airship taking of? from Friedrichshafen at 8 a. m, headed toward the Atlantic where heavy .storms, were reportftt ti> h» pifvaj. ent and because qf this it was likely to follow & route by way of the Azores. Two hours after her departure, she was passing over northern France. No Fuss At All. The dirigible got away with clockllke precision and with less fuss at the start than it takes to get » trans-Atlantic liner away from her pier. Shortly before 7 a, m. the doors of the huge hangar swung open and preparations were begun to clear the ship. All the members o* the crew took their posts and then the passengers were taken on board. The huge craft was then dragged slowly and steadily out of the hangar. Within^two free of the hangar the hawsers were detached and two hundred stalwart workmen who had been hanging to the lower gunwale let go. The Graf Zeppelin immediately jascended almost perpendicularly ' to an elevation of about 150 feet. The nose was pointed upward and the airship rose higher as it circled low over Friedrichshafen. Over Lake Constance. Finally it headed westward over Lake Constance and in three minutes the craft had disappeared from view on what was hoped to be the third.east to.west flight across the Atlantic In a lighter than air craft. This ship is named for the late Count Van Zeppelin, Germaziy airship builder and inventor, Graf being the German word for count. Before climbing into the ship. Or. Eckener said: "I expect to reach New York Sunday morning. The last weather reports, dated 2. a. in., speak of heavy storms. Under these circumstances of course it is impossible to determine the exact route in advance. In general, however, I can say we wil stick to the southern course." Captain E, A. Lehman, navigation officer, said that it was quite possible that the airship would go as far south as the coast of Africa and then head for the Azores. Plenty of Provisions.
