Leader In Many Lines.
Dr. Anna Howard Shaw was a
leader in many lines of endeavor,
but it is -for her work in behalf of
woman suffrage that she will be best
remembered. For some years she
had been honorary president of the
National American Woman Suf-.
frage association. From 1904 to
1915 she was active president of the
same organization, and as such won
a national and international repu
tation by her eloquence, power as a
polemicist and disputant, and organ
izer of victory. 'Her formal advo

as 1885, when she tw,as chosen tec-turer-af

place they removed to 'Lawrence,
Mass., artd there stayed seven years.

Unusual Story of Hardship, Daring and Miraculous Es
cape From Death DuringHhe War Brought to Light
By Published Account of Adventures Given Out By
Naval Officers in Washington. C .
Washington, July 2. An unusual
story of hardships, daring and mir
aculous escape from death during
the war was brought to light when
naval omcers maae public, an ac
count of the adventures of the crew
of the navy dirigible B-12, which
was given up for lost by the depart
ment in July, 1918, after drifting
around at sea for more than two
days, during which the crew had
practically nothing to eat and ran
short of drinking water. The dirigi
ble finally was forced to descend on
the surface of the sea and the crew
was rescued, by the Swedish ship
The B-12, with Ensign W. B.
Griffen as -commanding officer and
pilot, was ordered t leave Chatham.
Mass., early July 19, on a patrolling
expedition. German submarines
were then operating off the Atlantic
coast and the dirigible was well
loaded with bombs. Scanty food
supplies were carried, as Ensign
Griffen expected to return to Chat
ham that night. The radio equip
ment had only been partially in
stalled and could not be used to
send or receive messages.
Couldn't Steer Craft.
The B-12 patrolled to the north
along the coast and sighted a trans

LAID TO FEDERAL
LAND LOAN BANKS
Evasion of Maximum Amount
Loan on One Farm Charged
Washington, July 2.- Violation of
the law regarding farm loans was
charged against the. federal land
banks, "as guided and controlled by
the federal farm loan board," by
Representative McFadden, republic
an, Pennsylvania, Under an extension
of remarks printed in the congres
sional record. He asserted that the
requirements that loans be made
only to resident land owners was
disregarded and that "dummy deals"
permit evasion of the maximum
amount of a loan on one farm. He
urged that congress make federal
land bank bonds taxable, which he
asserted would enhance the value of
Liberty bonds. 1 -
4,The rulings of the federal far'm
loan board show that tenantry is en
couraged and that practically no re
striction is irnp"osed to enforce the
intent of the law requiring loans to
be made to actual farmers," Repre
sentative McFadden declared.
"In the mad rush to secure a large
volume of loans the federal land
banks continuously and persistently
violate the express provisions of the
law by resorting to subterfuges that
render them liable to the censure of
congress and of the courts."
While the maximum loan to one
person is $1U,UUU, Mr. Mcfadden
said, that "in order to violate" this
provision a farmer can sell an inter
est to his wife, thus obtaining $JU,-
000 and by taking in another rela
tive as a temporary partner, they can
borrow 30,000. In this connection
he cited two transactions which he
asserted had been investigated by
reliable abstractors that disclose
loans of $32,000 and $41,300 on two

President of Union Declares
Strike Has Not Been as Pro
ductive of Results as Desired
Owing toVarious Causes.
AGAINST SURE SUCCESS
Postmaster General's Auto
cratic Behavior Scored by S.
J. Konenkamp in Long State
ment to Members oMJnibrr.
Chicago, July 2. The strike of
telegraphers which began June 11
was called off at noon today by S. J.
LlConenkamp, president of the Com
mercial Telegraphers' Union 'of
America. President Konenkamp,
who returned from Washington this
morning, called off the strike' after
he had conferred with other officials
of the union.
A statement addressed to the
members of the organization by
President Konenkamp read in part:
"Wlien the present strike was de
clared against the telegraph com
panies under control of the wire
administration, it was .understood
that it would not be made an en
durance contest". The strike was to
be the final protest against the un
fair and unjust treatment we have
received since August, 1918, at the
hands of the wire administration.
Worked to Compel Action.
"We realized that in order to
make this protest effective it would
be necessary to make the strike suf
ficieatly acute to compel action.
This does not seem possible now
either through our efforts or the ef
forts of others we' relied upon te-
help us. This is the view taken by
many who are vitally interested in
the success of the strike and they
agree with me that to submit the
proposition to a vote of the mem
be&hip would result in serious de
lay and disorganization. Acting up
on this conclusion and with a view
to serving your best interests, I
hereby declare the strike at an end
and you are instructed to work with
out further delay. You have made
a gallant struggle for your rights
as American wqrkingmen and
"You have sought a minimum o!
the things which the present govern
ment administration says all work
ers should enjoy. You have not
only been denied these rights but
governmental agencies have been
used to prevent you getting them
by exercising your own economic
Send Messages In Bags,
"We find that sending telegrams
from city to city in suit cafes is
now permissible although Western
Union officials were arrested for
doing so a year ago. We find that
telegrams are being mailed without
restriction. The telegraph officials
say the government is footing the
strike losses, thereby adding this
factor to our opposing forces.
"We are doubly unfortunate in
having to deal with a governmental i
representative in the person of Mr.
Burleson, who will yield no con
cession to the workers unless it is
forced from him and in not being
able to muster enough strength
within our own ranks to compel him
to give usva square deal. Despite
all of his high-sounding words, the
fact remains that Burleson has
fought lis and .aided the telegraph
companies at every turn and his
party must take the blame.
Future Not Hopeless.
"The future, however, is not with
out hope. The principles for which
we contend are going to prevail in
the end. They must prevail because
they are right. The union will con
tinue"" its fight for the elemental
tights of industrial freedom. We
urge you as a loyal member to con
tinue lo do your part.
"The C. T. U. A. will not sur-.
render. Some reorganization of the
union may be necessary, but our
banner flung to the breeze in 1902
will never be furled."
It was announced that a meeting
of the executive committee of the
organizatiorr would be called in a
ifew days to consider plans of reor

El Paso, July 2. Francisco Vftla
ordered M Americans hanged when
captured, following the crossing of
the American, expedition, according
to a foreign resident of northern
Mexico, who has reached the border.
He sent a train ,fo Villa Ahutnada
to capture Americans known to be
there, the refugeesaid, and was so
bitter agajnst Americans he threat
ened to kill Hipolito Villa, his
brother, because of Hipolito's pro
fessed friendship for them, accord
ing to the refugee's statement.
Villa and Martin Lopei quarreled
after th retreat " from Jtlarez, he
said, and divided their fortes,
i This statement was made by Don
ald B. Best, British subject", who
owns a large store at Villa Ahumada.
Best said Hipolito Villa was seri
ously ill, in the Best home in Villa
Ahunfeda when Villa threatened him
and the leader's brother was forced
to leave in a small cart for the Oji
naga. district to save his. life. Villa
and his iand. iaoted the Best torH
iVi'St; Break With Lopr ? 'H;
The British merchant gave the
first details of a break between Villa
and Martin Lopez as related by
Mexicans" who said they were pres-.
ent; "Vil's men, fagged, without
ammunition and sullen, after retir
ing before the Americans at Juarez;
held a meeting at' Villa Ahumada,
Mexican friends told me," Best said. .
"They voted to depose Villa in fa- '
vor of Angeles, vhothen was at
Samalayuca tearing up the railroad
to prevent American troops from
pursuing them south. ' , s
"Next day v General Quiroga with
a federal force 2,000 Yaqui Indi
ans and othtr troops arrived at
Ojo Caliente, having come south.
Villa sent Martin Lopez to engage
them. Lopez was defeated. Villa
withdrew, reorganized his demoral- i
ized forces and sent Lcpez Against
the Yaquis a second time. Defeated
again, Villa retired to the Santo Do
mingo ranch, 'leaving his wounded
behind. There Martin Lopez - de-
nounced Villa, according v to the"
statements of witnesses."
Called Villa a Liar. .
'"Lopez pulled his pistol, covered
Villa and called him a liar,' a Mex
ican who was present told me," Best
said. . V
"Lopez was apparently angered
because Villa had made a speech to :
his men, before attacking Juarez,'
telling them the Americans . were .
friends of himself and Angeles, that
the American Red Cross would care ;
for their wounded and everything
would be fine for them after they
had taken the Juarez port. Lopez
announced he was through withA
Villa, cursed him and said he was
going to look out for himself in the
future and would have nothing more
to do with Villa. Villa sent for
Angeles at Samalayuca, but lefrfof'
San Lorenzo de Carmen before we
heard whether v-Angels reached
Villa's camp. Villa also threatened
to burn the ranch buildings at Santo
Doming6, but Lopez stopped him,
Mexicans told me." ' .
Villa Jigents deny Villa intended to
kill Americans, calling attention to
the fact that' more than two weeks
had passed since 'American troops '
dispersed Villa's forces with no re-:
prisals having been exacted.
