LENOX TIME TABLE, LENOX. 10WA_ Pickard © Whrmi Ntu-ipnftr Union King' Edward VIII King George Is Dead; Edward Takes Throne G EORGE V, king of Great Britain and emperor of India, died In Sandrlnghnm house, peacefully and painlessly, In his seventy-first year. Immediately on his passing, his eldest son, Edward Albert, who had been prince of Wales, succeeded to the throne, which by British law, Is never vacant Next morning the state council, consisting of the queen and her four sons, which had been created by a decree which George signed a few hours before his death, proclaimed the accession of the new ruler as Edward VIII. Ills first official act was to notify the lord mayor of London of his father's demise. King George, who had been on the throne almost twenty-five years, was the best loved and most democratic of the world's monarchs, always Just, solicitous for the welfare of his subjects, and living a simple and almost faultless domestic and official life. The new king, a confirmed bachelor, knows his vast empire Intimately, having visited practically every part of it, some regions many times. Decidedly different from his father In his tastes and ways of life, he still, as the prince of Wales, has been a great favorite of the people, and in recent years, realizing that he would soon have to mount the throne, he steadied down and took an increasing interest In the affairs of the empire. He Is especially liked by the laboring classes, In whose welfare he often has shown deep sympathy. That he never married has been a disappointment to the British people. Now for the first time since the reign of William IV there is no prince of Wales. Next In the line of succession is the king's brother, the duke of York, and second comes the duke's little daughter, Princess Elizabeth. There will be six months or more of official mourning for George's death, and Edward VIII will not be crowned for about one year. The body of the dead ruler was removed from Sandringham house to the little church of St. Mary Magdalene In Sandringham. Thence It was to be taken to Westminster abbey, there to lie In state. Interment Is to be In the Albert Memorial chapel at Windsor, beside the tombs of George's father and mother. It was believed the stnte funeral would not take place for two weeks. withdrawals. Mr. Robert had been expected for some time to quit his post. In his treasury position Mr. Coolidge, long a New England banker, has been In charge of such government financial affairs as the huge borrowings of money to meet heavy government expenditures. He was understood to be In accord with most Roosevelt policies but felt he was unable to give his full support to tlie general New Deal program. It was not learned what specific objections were raised by Mr. Coolidge but they were believed to revolve around such constitutional questions ns federal versus state rights. A Ellsworth and His Pilot Rescued in Antarctica LL the world rejoiced over the news that Lincoln Ellsworth, noted explorer, nnd his pilot, Herbert Holllck - Kenyon, had been found safe and well In Little America and were on board the rescue ship Discovery II which was sent jointly by the British and Australian governments. The two men had been missing since November 23 when they started on a bold airplane flight across the Antarctic continent. In this they succeeded, but they ran out of fuel and were forced to land at the bay of Whales. They had a considerable supply of provisions, but this was almost exhausted when they were found. No word had come from them because their radio transmitter was disabled. Nye Arouses the Wrath of Fellow Senators EUALD P.

One after another Dem- ocratlc senators arose to denounce this charge and to promise no more John A. Bankhead (Dem., Ala.), AAA Administrator Davis, and M. G. White of the AAA.

A total of 1,007,081 ballots was received, and of these G2.G6 per cent were cast against the President's policies and acts, and 37.34 per cent were for the administration. Thirty-six states gave majorities against the eleven still In favor of the President and his policies. Among tlie pro-Roosevelt states was Utah. The others were classified in the release as "southern and border" states.

And when headline hunting was the recipient of a flare-back from Its own devices, It caught two well-known senate figures In the whirlpool of the reaction. Probably one of the senators was largely responsible for the terrific explosion that took place and he caught the full force and effect of his own statements as they came In reverse gear. The Incident to which I refer occurred In connection with the Investigation of munitions makers and bankers by Senator Nye. Republican, of North Dakota, and the special committee of which he Is chairman. This Investigation has gone on for some fifteen months and has cost approximately $193,000, $08,000 of which came out of funds appropriated to feed the hungry of New York city. It has disclosed some questionable practices by some of the small dealers In munitions. But ns a whole, I believe the consensus In Washington Is that Mr. Nye's Investigation, called a fishing expedition by many newspaper correspondents, has added little or nothing of a constructive character. * « * Once before In these columns I reported to you how Senator Nye Arthur Brlnlmno cent against the administration. The Middle Atlantic states from New York to the west showed 08.80 per cent of the voters against Mr. Roosevelt and his recovery schemes, while the Middle Western states in the farm belt and the Rocky Mountain states indicated a ratio approximately the same as the nation at large—3 to 2 against. The three Pacific coast states totaled 58.04 against the New Deal. Supreme Court Orders Process Tax Return S UMMARILY overruling the government's petition for a rehearing of the Louisiana rice millers' cases, Involving the refund of some 200 million dollars in processing taxes held In escrow, the United States Supreme court issued its mandate ordering the return of the funds to the taxpayers, The court also Issued Its mandate In the Hoosac mills cases. In which the Agricultural Adjustment act was held unconstitutional and thereby closed the door to petitions for a rehearing In that case. In a third action the court ordered arguments on February 4 on the New Deal's motion to dismiss n suit brought by the state of Georgia to test the constitutionality of the Bankhead compulsory cotton control act Senate Passes Bonus Bill, 74 to 16 B Y A vote of 74 to 10 the senate passed Senator Harrison's compromise bonus measure which provides for the payment of $2,237,000,000 to veterans In baby bonds and cash. The action was taken despite warnings from the treasury that the national debt would be swollen to $85,500,000,000 In eighteen months. The senate* rejected an amendment for discretionary currency „ , , inflation. Sen ' Harr " on It \yas considered certain the house would accept the senate bill, for it iwas backed by the veterans' organizations. Kelief was general that President Hoosevelt would veto the measure, but Its proponents felt sure tfce veto would be overridden in both house and senate. i Tfwo Treasury Officials Resign Their Posts U NDERSECRETARY of the Treasury Thomas Jefferson Coolldffe resigned his position sud- 'denly and unexpectedly, because he did not agree with all the policies of the [administration. At the same money would be appropriated for the investigations which Nye's munitions committee has been carrying on. Carter Glass, the fiery old Virginian who was Wilson's secretary of the treasury, was especially bitter In his attack on the North Dakotan and by skillful direction managed to express his opinion of his fellow senator without violating the senate rules. Said he: "If It were permissible in the senate to say that any man who would asperse the Integrity and veracity of Woodrow Wilson Is a coward; If it were permissible to say that his charge Is not only malicious but positively mendacious, that I would be glad to say here and elsewhere to any man, whether be be a United State senator or not, because the charge would he not only destitute of decency but it would be such a shocking exhibition as never has happened in the 85 years I have served in the congress of the United States." The attacks on Senator Nye were not confined to his charge that President Wilson was a falsifier. He was accused of exploiting tils position as chairman of the munitions committee for his political enhancement, for the sake of newspaper headlines, and for his personal profit. Seventeen Persons Die in Airplane Crash QEVENTEEN persons met a tragic *J fate In the worst airplane accident that the United States has had. A big transport plane of the American Airlines, en route from New York to Los Angeles, crashed In a swamp near tlie village of Goodwin, Ark., and its M passengers, two pilots nnd stewardess were killed. With great difficulty the bodies of the victims were brought out of the marsh where their bodies were found scattered among the fragments of the shattered plane. Officials of the government and the airline company immediately started an Investigation, but the cause of the disaster could not easily be determined. was proceeding The Great about the country Flare-Back ™l :ln K speeches In which he charged munitions makers and International bankers and even aircraft and shipbuilders with being Instrumental In promoting war. Indeed, he asserted numerous times that bankers and munitions makers had forced the United States Into the World war. He and investigators, employed by the committee, were constantly engaged In telling capital correspondents of terrible things which the Investigators had dug up while they mulled through private files of banks and business houses. These brought plenty of headlines, but now that the munitions investigation Is virtually over, ceedlngs. In doing so they read a statement explaining their position which, though tactful, was none the less direct In expressing their dissatisfaction. • * * In the meantime, the Morgan partners, headed by J. P. Morgan himself, sat in the witness chairs with nothing to do. They sat for three days with virtually no questions being put to them. From their standpoint, I believe their climactic appearance as witnesses was quite fitting. The committee that had started out with bales and bales of records from which the Investigators were going to prove how terrible was the House of Morgan had found it was giving them a rather clean bill of health. They found that the com- at an av mlttee Instead of proving that thel/ an hour, had brought on the war, was proving for the House of Morgan that It had served the United States government; that Us policies were of more value to this country than they ever had been publicly shown to be before and that in the end they had enabled the governments of Great Britain and France to maintain their strength and fight off the Central Powers until the men and money from the United States were brought Into play. Through the long years that J, P. Morgan and company has op crated in New York the name has been synonymous with Wall Street It was synorlymous with Wai Street because demagogues and those politicians who profit by bait ing big business as a popular spor had created that impression. Al ways when It was profitable fo a representative or senator to con jure up a picture to win votes fo himself you could find allusions the "mighty power of Morgan." It will be recalled how in re cent years two former senators Brookhart, Republican of Iowa, and Heflin, Democrat of Alabama, -wide mince meat of the "money changers of Wall Street." Always the "-noriey changers" were headed up !>y the House of Morgan. I mentlrn these two former senators because their attacks are typical. There ore those in the senate today w!'\> do the same thing for the samp purposes. The committee Investigation of the House of Morgan showed that the institution had profited by acting as commercial agentn for the allies and that in handling about three billion dollars In purchases of wheat, cotton, cool, oil, shells and other munitions of war for the allies, a commission of 1 per cent BRISBANE THIS WEEK Not Spoiled by Money Freedom of the A ; r 500 Air Miles for S6 Jones Still Will Lend Another airplane record.

His new two-passenger plane, with V-S engine turning the propeller 4,000 times a minute, carries SO gallons of gasoline, with a (lying range above 500 miles. Five hundred miles of air travel for $6 vorth of gasoline for two passengers would be cheap transportation. Henry Ford will begin manufacturing planes seriously, "If anrl when conditions demand volume production worth while." Thirty-Hour-Week Bill Prepared by Committee C t)N(JKKSSMAN UONNiOUY of Massachusetts, chairman of tlie house labor committee, says that body has approved a bill designed to Impose tlie HO-liour week on Industry operating In Interstate commerce, and that he hopes It will have the support of the President. The measure would license all Interstate business and withhold licenses from flnna which work employees more than 30 hours a week, fall to provide a wage sufficient to maintain a decent and comfortable standard of living, deny workers the right to join unions or bargain collectively, or employ persons under sixteen years of age. Hauptmann Is Reprieved by Gov. Hoffman L 10SS than thirty hours from the time when lie was to die In the electric chair, Bruno Richard Hauptmann, convicted kidnaper and slayer of the Lindbergh baby, was given a thirty-day reprieve by Governor Hoffman of New Jersey, This means he will have at least sixty more days to live, be- Miuse be will have to be resentenced. The governor did not give the specific reasons for his action. He did say: one can hardly agree In making a fair appraisal of the committee's work that the charges have been substantiated. Senator Nye Is an advocate of peace and he had many opportunl- :ies, therefore, to appear In the roll of a peace leader In speeches before various organizations Interested. It developed, however, that he received honoraria, gifts of money or fees, for the speeches. But to get back to the headline hunting and how it flared back, the climax of the munitions Inquiry was the Investigation of the gigantic New York financial house of J. P. Morgan and company. It was while the Morgan partners were on the witness stand that the explosion canie —and It did not Involve Morgan In any way. The Incident around which the storm blew hardest came when Senator Clark of Missouri, a son of the distinguished late Speaker Clark, read into the committee record documents show- had been paid to the House of Morgan. The Inquiry also revealed the extent to which Morgan and c«u- pany had taken bonds of the Frwrtch Jess Jones, chairman of Reconstruction Finance corporation, tells the banks that he will go on lending government money until they make credit and loans easier. Mr. Jones says: "The big fellow, with unquestionable credit, borrows on his own terms, at low rates. Credit for the average business is too sparingly given, at much higher rates."

So, the munitions investigation, instead of smearing the House of Morgan, apparently has told for the first time the details of how It functioned during a period when the United States government could do nothing, a period when the vast majority of our citizens were proved Bruno Hauptmann "A reprieve is an act of executive clemency rather than Judicial clemency. I am not required to give a reason, but I might say that there are grave doubts in this case, not only In my mind, but In the minds also of our citizens." M Death of Rudyard Famed British Poet R UDYARD KIPLING, poet and story writer who best embodied In his literary work the Ideas of British Imperialists, died In London following an operation for perforated ulcer of the stomach. He was seventy years of age and in recent years had written very little except as a propagandist. He was a vigorous and bold writer and a Italo-Ethiopia War Again Before League Council EMBERS of the League of Nations council assembled In Geneva and opened their ninetieth session, to resume their efforts to settle the Italo-Ethloplan conflicts. Diplomats present believed further sanctions against Italy might be Imposed, but It was generally believed the plan to declare an embargo on oil was dead, at least for the present. This was due to un- ing how President Wilson had diplomatically evaded Informing a senate committee of the existence of treaties among the allies by which there would be a division of the colonies of Germany and Austria- Hungary if the allies won the World war. Subsequently, documents showed that Mr. Wilson was aware of those treaties and when this was disclosed, Senator Nye charged In a committee hearing that Mr. Wilson had falsified the records. There followed the explosion. Word reached the floor of the senate, then in session, and Senator to have been sympathetic with the allies against the central powers. 30c 40c 65e Bottle.
