Political Battle Rages Ovei British Premiership, With Foreign Minister Still Favorite. BY JOHN T. BURKE, Universal Service Correspondent. London, May 21.—The battle is on between the Hon. Stanley Baldwin, chancellor of the exchequer, and Lord Curzon, foreign secretary, for the premiership. But while they are the leading candidates for the place given up by Bonar Law, who is broken in health, a new turn has been given to the situation by conferences held by Sir Robert Horne and Lord Beaverbrook Monday with Bonar Law. As a result of these conferences it 1 was whispered in clubs and political circles Monday night that Austen Chamberlain may be the choice as a compromise. Another Interpretation. Expert opinion in Whitehall, how ever, interprets Sir Robert Horne's visit to a desire on the part of the retiring premier to effect a reunion of the conservatives with Chamber lain in the cabinet. The Daily Chronicle says that it learns from an authoritative con servative source that it is most likely the king, after weighing the circum stances, will invite Lord Curzon to form a cabinet. After the conference with the former chancellor of the exchequer, Bonar Law, according to a bulletin issued by Drs. Gould, May and Har mer, and a throat specialist in at tendance, was subjected to a slight operation in order to remove a growth in the throat. The patient’s condition Monday night was reported as unchanged. While Lord Curzon is supported by the old nobility, who believe that heredity should be the determining factor in selecting the prime min ister, and is still the favorite in the race, there is no use blinking the fact that Baldwin, backed by a ma jority of the "die hards", is hourly becoming more formidable. Lloyd George has declined to dis cuss the situation further than to say that he regrets the tragic illness of Bonar Law. But the attitude of the Welshman worries the tories, as he is known to regard Baldwin as one of the chief leaders of the Carlton club cabal which accomplished the downfall of the coalition government. Never has such ovewhelming sym pathy been extended to any man as has been given to Bdnar Law, of whom besides his present illness, it is not forgotten that he gave two of his three sons in the World war. „ GUlLjyy JURY Verdict of First Degree Mur der Returned Against Young South Dakota y Farmer. Lake Andes, S. D., May 21 (Spe cial).—The jury in the case of Frank Wilcox, charged with slaying Wil liam Kemery, young farmer, near Geddes, S. D..

P.)—Leonid Krassin, Russian soviet representa tive in London, is unofficially under stood to have been instructed to in form the British foreign office that Russia cannot yield in principle from its recent note replying to the British ultimatum. The instructions, it is said, were sent as the result of a soviet government conference Sun day night. While willing to make some tem porary arrangements regarding the fishing rights of the British trawlers off the Murmansk coast, such as lim iting the territorial right, and adjust ing other secondary points pending general negotiations, Russia still in sists that the differences between the two countries can only be adjusted by a conference. It is pointed out that England, despite numerous requests from the soviet government has never since 1920 stated exactly what the British policy and interests in Persia and other eastern lands actually are. HIGH COURT RULES ON FREIGHT RATES Washington, May 21 (A.

Fighl Over U. S. Senatorship Grows Complicated, With Demo-Farmer Labor Coalition Possible. BY CHARLES N WHEELER, Universal Service Correspondent. St. Paul, Minn., May 21.—Minne sota’s hectic political situation was further complicated Monday when Justice Oscar Halam, of the supreme court, and Sydney Anderson of the first district, filed as republican can didates for nomination for United States senator. The seat to be filled is that left vacant by the death of the late Senator Knute Nelson. Coincident with these develop ments Magnus Johnson, of Kimball, former state senator, was endorsed as the farmer-labor candidate by a number of state leaders who met in Minneapolis. Stone Succeed!) Hallam. A few minutes before the filing Justice Hallam resigned from the bench. Governor Preus immediately named Royal S. Stone, a prominent St. Paul attorney, to succeed Hallam on the supreme bench. Governor Preus, who intends to make the race for the republican nomination, would not say Monday when he intends to file, but his as sociates are certain he will be in the field before the end of the week. Congressman Thomas D. Schall, the blind lawyer of Minneapolis, also filed on the republican ticket, w^iich insures at least four candidates on the republican side when Governor Preus leaps in. Former Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh, of Little Falls, who wrote j the book “Why Your Country Is At i War”, and narrowly escaped an in- j dictment in 1918 as a result, is the only one filed thus far on the farmer labor ticket. Meantime a movement is on to form a coalition between the farmer labor and democratic forces by which an agreed ticket can be supported after the primaries. This develop- j ment is centering around Thomas V. Sullivan, prominent St. Paul attor- S ney, and one of the leaders of the 1 farmer-labor organization. He was the farmers’ candidate for attorney general in both 1918 and 1920 and came within a few hundred votes of winning in 1920 despite the land- , Blid-e vote for President Harding. If this movement succeeds Magnus Johnson would retire from the sena torship field with the understanding of the support of the independent forces for governor next year. John son came very near winning the gubernatorial election last year, over Governor Preus. FLO DENIES SHE'S Alleged “Other Woman” In Di. vorce Case Makes Position Plain—Touched by Mrs. Stillman’s Action. New York, May 21 (A. P.)—Flor ence Leeds, former show girl, who figured with her little son, Jay Leeds, in the Stillman'divorce case in which It was established that James A. Still man, millionaire banker, was the boy’s father, today asked the Associated Press to say that she diid not con template any court action to compel Stillman to provide for her son. Confirming reports that Stillman had abandoned her and withdrawn his support from her and her child, Miss Leeds said: “When my money gives out, I can always go out and work for my boy.” Miss Leeds said she had received an offer from Mrs. Anne U. Stillman, wife of the banker, to take Jay Leeds into her home and give him a chance with her own children. While she indicated she would* not accept she said she was deeply touched by Mrs. " Stillman’s sympathetic interest. “Mrs. Stillman knows,” she de clared, “that I was not the woman who figured in his divorce case.” COMMUNISTS CAUSE 7 MINES TO SHUT DOWN Essen, May 21 (A. P.)—Seven coal mines In the Dortmund district have been compelled to shut down because of the communist agitation for higher wages. It is estimated that 32,000 miners are striking and 10,000 other are being prevented from working because of the trouble. Two of the mines affected are Stinnes properties, one is a Prussian state mine and the remainder belongs to small com panies. At a meeting of 6,000 communists in Dortmund Sunday night speakers declared the communist organization was prepared to fight to a finish in the struggle for increased wages. They declared that although the Ger man government and the German In dustrialists were spending money like water in passive resistance to the French, they had refused the men’s demands for increased wages to meet the recent rapid rise in food prices. A. B. COLE, NEBRASKA FINANCE AGENT, RESIGNS Lincoln, Neb., May 21 (Special.)— Arthur B.

CHINA GIVEN 24 HOURS IN ULTIMATUM Government Notified Foreign Troops to Be Sent Against Bandits If Release of Cap tives Not Effected Today. Universal Service. Special Cable Dispatch. Peking, May 21.—American and other foreign troops sta tioned in China were preparing Monday night to rush to the hills in Shantung province to rescue from the Soochow band its the American and other for eign prisoners held there. The diplomatic representa tives of all countries whose cit izens are included in the group of captives Monday served no tice upon the Chinese govern ment that unless the prisoners were released in 24 hours the a. a. a ♦ ♦ ♦ PRAYER OFFERED FOR ♦ ♦ CAPTIVES OF BANDITS ♦ z ♦ ♦ Indianapolis, Ind., May 21 + ♦ (V.

At the same time the diplomatic body announced that, despairing of action by China's officials, they would take up direct negotiations with the bandits for the release of prisoners before ordering the troops into action. Messages Stir Diplomats. The peril of the situation became known Monday through the arrival of Senora Verea, bride of Manuel Verea, the paper manufacturer of Guadalajara, Mexico, who was re leased by the bandits. She was ser iously ill and was taken to a hospital. At the same time a message ar rived from the Chevalier Musso, prominent Italian, among the pris oners, declaring that he expected to be executed along with the other prisoners, and asking that his rel atives in Italy be sent a message tell ing of his resignation to impending death. This message has stirred the for eigners throughout China and de mands are pouring in from private as well as diplomatic sources upon the Chinese'government to take ac tion to save the prisoners. Politics Tangle Situation. The situation’s political turn has caused grave fears that a general uprising against foreigners may spread throughout China and it was reported Monday night that the ban dit chiefs, who number among them several who were students In Amer ican and European colleges, would hold the prisoners hostages for the resignation of President Li Yuen Hung, demanding a president and government of thVir own choosing. At the same time the message of the Chevailer Musso indicated that the foreign-hating element of the bandits might bring death to the cap tives at any moment despite the more pacific leanings of the student leaders. Musso’s message read: "Immediate steps must be taken or we will be killed. I await death calmly. Wire my family in Italy.” Senora Verea was hysterical when she arrived at Shanghai, through fear that .her husband would be killed. She called her experience in the ban dit camp a “ghastly nightmare.” Marcel Gerube, the Frenchman who was released as a dispatch bearer from the bandits, carried an appeal to President Li Ypen Hung, declaring that the bandits insisted on dealing directly with him. But as the situa tion rests in the hands of Marshal Tsao Kun, no action is expected by the president he believed to be absolutely in the power of the mar shal. Tsao Kun is believed by many for eigners to be planning to use the seizure of the foreigners as an ex cuse to overthrow Li Yuan Hung and set himself up as president or dicta tor. FIGHTING CONTINUES.

GERMAN OFFER NEARLY READY ^binet to Consider Draft To day—Note to Be Largely Supplementary to Recent One. BY KARL H. VON WIEGAND, Universal Service Correspondent. Special Cable Dispatch. Berlin, May 21.—Fifty billion gold marks payable in annuities covering a period of 30 years, or 30.000,000,000 “present actual value”, in two or three payments from which there is to be no deduction for Interest—that, according to my information, is to be the substance of a new reparations offer to the Allies which will come before the German cabinet at a spe cial session Tuesday. The meeting will be held as soon as Chancellor Cuno and Foreign Minister Rosen berg return to Berlin. As securities for payment the cus toms and a number of special mo nopolies are mentioned. The rail ways have again been dropped as security because they are now op erating at a large deficit and are not to be regarded as guarantees. Bonar Law Plan Adopted. The text of the new note was com pleted Saturday. Germany, In this note, In effect adopts Bonar Law's plan. Whether the resignation of the British premier will cause any change in the German government’s present Intentions was not clear Monday night in the absence of Chancellor Cuno and the foreign minister, who have been away on a Whitsuntide holiday. It is not be lieved in parliamentary circles that the change In the head of the British cabinet will have any great bearing on the German attitude. The note as at present framed would seem to be more In the form of a supplementary note to the last offer, rather than a new set of proposals, pointing out that the last note was misunderstood in part as it offered "thirty billions present cash value,” exclusive of Interest. With interest it would in reality amount to about 35 billions. Under that offer, if Ger many had been allowed to pay in an nuity form for 30 years, it would have meant 60 billions, which Ger many is now ready to offer in that form. Hughes Plan Eliminated. As Lord Curzon has let Germany know that he Is not for the Hughes plan, there is no mention of that plan in the present note. If the cabinet approves of the note it appears to be the intention to first submit it as an unofficial diplomatic note to the British and Italian governments through German Ambassadors Sthamer at London and Neurath at Rome, who will ask if those gov ernments consider it acceptable as a basis for negotiation. If the answer is negative, it is said that two possibilities are open— Chancellor Cuno may abandon fur ther offeds, or he may follow Bonar Law's example and resign, leaving some one else to take up the task of trying to satisfy the Allies. federiTreserve MEN CULL MEETING Advisory Council Gathers to Discuss Economic Prob lems—Probe Credit Conditions.

POINCARE SENDS HIS REGRETVTO MR. LAW Paris, May 21 (A. P.)—Premier Poincare today telepgraphed his re grets to Prime Minister Bonar Law over the iattcr's resignation. “France,” he said, “deeply regrets the determination which your state of health obliged you to take.

Washington, May 21.—Practically the entire Asiatic fleet of the Amer ican navy, consisting of 18 destroy ers, a cruiser, a gunboat, a supply ship and other auxiliaries, are con centrated at Chefu, Shantung port nearest the bandit stronghold, ready for any emergency. These vessels are prepared to make landings of crew detachments if deemed necessary.

Chefu is 50 miles west of Weihai wei, the English possession, and 100 miles south of Port Arthur. It was made the base for the American ves sels after most of them had been as sembled at Tsing Tao, 150 miles to the south.
