"Have shoe pric es reached the limit?" A committee .of the Boston Retail Shoe Dealers' association, after canvassing the sit uation, says "No." The question and answer are contained in a re port given out in connection with the annual convention of the Na tional Shoe Retailers' association, in , session here. -, Explaining what higher prices are to be expected, the report says: "Shoes now on sale were made from, leather costing 60 cents to $1 a foot Shoes" now being made for spring are from material costing 80 cents to $1.25 a foot, plus higher costs for other materials and addi tional grants to labor, with less pairs per man produced." Prices will go down, it said, "when there is more leather and less de mand for it," and "when strikes cease and labor connected with shoes buckles down and produces more." , Shoe dealers advise people to shine their own shoes. Aside from the saving, the report says, "it is im portant to know that the heat of friction burning off the savage on slaught of the professional shoe shiner is responsible for most of the uppers cracking."

Chicago, Jan. 13. Clothing prices next spring will be from 25 to 40 per cent higher than at present, according to H. R: King of SeattiK, ulin rffli4rsrf the. .National Retail Clothiers' association. . Mr. King said that the increase would come from a complexity of causes, chief of which was increased pay to workers. Labor had gone up 275 per cent since 1914, he said. Mr. King also cited the decrease in working hours and the increase of Australian wool from $1.15 a pound in 1914 to $4.10 a pound now. "The coming year will be a most :rucial one for clothing merchants," !ie declared. "It will not be so much a question of making money as to keep the business from going on the rocks '" - v 1 .. Division of Ships Among Other Poyyers Would Make it Necessary for America to Enlarge Naval Program. Washington, Jan. 13. The United States government has refused to accept any part of indemnity . to tfe paid by Germany for the destruc tion of the German fleet in Scapa Flow, because it objects in princi ple to the settlement made by the supreme council, it was said today at the State department. Germany, in compensation for the destruction of the surrendered war ships, is required to deliver to the allies certain inland steamer and harbor1 facilities, such tas floating docks and tugs, and the council had decided to allocate 2 per cent of this material to the United States. Am bassador Wallace today informed the .council that if its decision with respect -to the award was final, the United States would waive its claim to any part of the indemnity. State department officials would not explain the American Govern ment's objection to the settlement, but it was recalled that from the first the American representatives at the peace conference have favored the destruction of the German ships on the ground that their division among the powers would make it necessary for this country to pro ceed with a much larger naval build ing program than would otherwise be regarded as necessary. BERLIN RIOTS PROVE FATAL TO DEMONSTRATORS Plundering on Large Scale ' Occurs When Mth Storm -The Reichstag. Los Angeles, Jan. 13. The case of Harry New, alleged murderer of his fmancee, Freda Lesser,' tonight was in thchands of the jury. Thomas Lee Woolwine, district attorney, closed the arguments- for the state this afternoon. Superior Judge Gavin W. Craig occupied 20 minutes in reatfcng his instructions on the legal points involved and the jury then retired to deliberate whether New wasJnsane, as the de fense contended, when he shot and killed Miss Lesser on the night of July 4, last, or whether, as the pros ecution contended, the killing was a cold-blooded murder and as such punishable i by life imprisonment or death. 1 The case went to the jury much sooner than had been expected, largely because of a sudden change in plans by the defense. This re sulted in the elimination of argu ment by John L. Richardson of the defense counsel, and the shortening of the final argument by LeCompte Davis, leading defense counsel, to a little more than 20 minutes. S. The district attorney charged the defense with trickery in that the sudden change in its procedure left him unprepared. Mr. Woolwine denounced New as a "cold-blooded murderer" and de clared there was no foundation for the defense contention of insanity. He characterized the defense of in sanity as a "last ditch defense," em ployed by guilty men who have nothing else to advance irt their be half. The prosecutor, shortly before he closed, placed a picture of Miss Les ser on the attorneys' table closa to the jury and also showed it the re volver with which New is alleged ta., have murdered the gtrl, and articles of bloody clothing she had worn. This brought a bitter protest from Davis, who charged it was miscon duct on Woolwine's part.

Bucknole toftered to the stage hastily and in a high shrill voice demanded: "Who's goin' to run the railroads if you have your way?" , Plumb started to reply, but the o.ld man interrupted him. Shakes His Fist. "You're just one of these lawyers that'll talk if you get paid to talk," he shrilled, shaking a bony fist under Plumbls nose. "The labor unions of the country are making every rfiember put a dollar in your hat. "When I came herex tonight I thought you were a railroad man. You couldn't even get a job on a railroad. You're one of these here fellows that stand around with your hands in your pockets and hand out smooth talk. It started railroading when I was 8 years old in England and I kept it up when I came to this country. You can't tell me about railroads!" Plumb turned his attention to other questioners and the old man hobbled away protestingly. He is in Omaha attending, the convention of the Farmers' union, he said. Opposes Rail 6ills. Mr. Plumb, in his speech, bitterly opposed the return of railroads to private ownership March 1, de nounced the Cumins bill now in con gress, and advocated the aSoption of his plan for railroad management which provides for a local board of directors, one-third of which should represent the people. one-third- the employes and one-third the officials Writ of Error for Cole Appeal Denied by Supreme JCourt Hearing Is Held Legal in At torney General's Ruling.

Executioner Hulbert of New York arrived at the state penitentiary late yesterday afternoon and tned out the newly installed electrio chair.

The' attorney general today noti fied Attornev Sterling Mutz. counsel for Grammer, that his accusations acainsf the final heainsr before the and that his office has 'been unable to discover any irregularities leading up to the hearing.
