Political Battle Rages Ovei
British Premiership, With
Foreign Minister Still
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
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
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. „
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.. March 26, returned a
verdict at 9:30 o’clock Monday night
convicting the defendant of murder
in the first degree. The South Da
kota sentence in such convictions is
life imprisonment.
The jury was out about five hours
and a half, but during that time took
only two ballots, most of the time,
one juror reported, being taken up in
argument over whether the verdict
should be for first or second degree
Both state and defense attorneys
presented arguments Monday morn
ing and afternoon. Opening argument
for the state was made by A. J. Cas
sidy. He completed his argument
I shortly before noon.
George M. Caster opened argu
ments for defense. The concluding
argument was made by J. E. Pipton.
Moscow, May 21 (A. 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.

Grows Complicated, With
Demo-Farmer Labor
Coalition Possible.
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
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.

New York, May 21 (A. P.)—Flor
ence Leeds, former show girl, who
figured with her little son, Jay Leeds,

It was established that James A. Still

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.

“Mrs. Stillman knows,” she de
clared, “that I was not the woman
who figured in his divorce case.”
Essen, May 21 (A. P.)—Seven coal
mines In the Dortmund district have

are being prevented from working
because of the trouble. Two of the
mines affected are Stinnes properties,

At a meeting of 6,000 communists

rescue would be undertaken by
foreign troops.
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
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

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
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.

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. The units, if sent
into the interior, would greatly weak
en the ships' complements, but it is
believed the engineer forces left
aboard to take care of the machinery
could hold off any possible attack
from shore. A few gun crews would
necessarily be left behind, and the
deck forces would be drawn upon for
the landing party.
Chefu is 50 miles west of Weihai

miles south of Port Arthur. It was
made the base for the American ves
sels after most of them had been as
