The Bee Retracts
Charges Against Police Officers Herdzina, Armstrong -and
Thestrup , and Mrs. Sedlacek Are Withdrawn.
The Bee makes the following statement relative to charges pub
lished in its columns under a former ownership and management,
concerning Police 'Officers John Herdzina, George Armstrong and
O. V. Thestrup, and Mrs. Stephen Sedlacek, charges which the present
management of The Bee has investigated and found to-be false and
groundless. "
On June 16, 1919, The Bee published what is known as "Roy
Kelly's Statement," in which it was charged that the police raid on the
Brbwn apartments was "framed;" that Herdzina and Armstrong ar
ranged it, were intoxicated, got Kelly drunk and allowed him to escape.
In the same edition, an article was published alleging that Armstrong
had wrecked the home of one Stephen Sedlacek,, had taken Sedlacek's
wife out riding repeatedly in police cars and was guilty of other im
proper acts. , 1 v
On July 16, 1919, another article was published charging that the
death of one John Redin was "due to the absolute neglect and rough
treatment he was accorded at the hands of the police," naming Officers
Herdzina and O. V. Thestrup. Redin died after falling intoa cistern
and the article inferred that these officers took $33 from his pockets
while removing the body. A similar charge of wrongfully abstracting
money from a corpse was made against the same officers in an article
published July 18, referring to the death of one Jud Tobias. Again,
on July 7, 1919, Herdzina and Thestrup were charged with- misconduct
in connection with the arrest of one Tony Peruccello.
The present management of The Bee has investigated these several
matters, which occurred while this newspaper was under another
ownership and management. It is convinced that the officers were
Hot guilty of the various acts charged, that Armstrong was not even
acquainted with Mrs. Sedlacek at the time related, that the several
publications were false in both fact and implication and constituted an
unwarranted reflection on the character and motives of the yarious
persons named. In accordance with its policy of fair dealing, The Bee
makes these retractions and expresses its regret at the injury done
these officers and Mrs. Sedlacek.
with republicans favoring it.
Final action by the house came
after an hour's debate, the republi
cans refusing to grant the demo
cratic request for more time. Spokes
men for both parties in the course
of the debate announced a willing
ness .to enter the political campaign
on their present records.
Only one democrat, Representative
Huddleston of Alabama, expressed
fear of possible political conse
quences. He declared the democrats
were riding to defeat because of their
course in regard to the question of
peace and asserted that if the San
Francisco convention approved Pres
dent Wilson's treaty position it
should nominate him for a third
term "so he could go to his defeat."

A. J. McQuarters of New York,
president of the mining company,
today sought the advice of govern
ment officials regarding payment of
the ransom. The State department, it
is understood, has taken no action
although it was regarded possible
that representations would be made,
not to the authorities' in Mexico City,
but to the de facto leaders in Chi

Issues Manifesto. ,
Mexico City, May 21. The ideals
which animated Gen. Pablo Gonzales
when he declared against the Car
ranza government are set forth fully
in a manifesto he has addressed to
the nation. Assurances of public or
der and that property rights, both
Mexican and foreign owned, will be
respected, together with the an
nouncement of his withdrawal as a
candidate for president to further
assure constitutional public order are
contained in the manifesto.
Particular interest is attached to
the declarations contained in the
manifesto in view of the fact that
General Gonzalez has directed gov
ernmental affairs since the flight of
Carranza from the capital May 7,
and that his nominees will exercise
control of government departments
until congress names a provisional
president. It is generally expected
that General Gonzalez will be the
choice of the members of congress
for provisional president.
Some Plants May s Have to
Shut Down Due to Lack
Of Refrigerators..
French Woman Worth
25 Russian Soldiers
Paris, May 21. One French wo
man or child is worth just over 25
Russian soldiers .according to the
figures arrived at by French officials
at Copenhagen. By an agreement
reached here with Rilsian agents,
France will exchange 3,000 interned
Russian prisoners for 125 French
women and children now in Russia.
Chicago, May 21. An immediate
constriction of thee nation's meat
supply is threatened by the reduced
quota of refrigerator cars appor
tioned to packing companies by the
Interstate Commerce commission,
according' to a statement issued by
Thomas E. Wilson, president of the
Institute of American Meat Packers
in behalf of American packing com
panies. "Reports received at the institute
from several sections show that
some plants may have to shut down
on account of the lack of cars," the
statement said. "Other plants have
been forced to effect a 50 per cent
curtailment of the production of
meat and some of these are on the
point of stopping operations en
tirely. ,V
"No packer owns enough refriger
ator cars to take care ofhis own
business. The larger packers are
compelled to rely on railroad owned
cars for 25 to 35 per cent of their
requirements, and the smaller pack
ers depend largely on these common
"Ordinarily the necessities of the
packing industry ape recognized and
filled in order to pro'tect the consum
er. But the Interstate Commerce
conftnission has diverted to other use
a considerable share of the quota
usually assigned and urgently need-,
ed to move meat."

German socialists
-Demand That State
Qf Siege Be Lifted
Berlin, May 21. "phe independent
socialists took advantage - of the
temporary absence from thaoiational
assembly chamber of most of. the
members of the parties of the right
to put through a motion demanding
that the state of siege existing in
various parts of the country be
raised immediately.
The opportunity came after the
speech of Frau Zeit?, independent
socialist, who during the debate on,
an interpellation complaining of acts
of brutality toward women and chil
dren, by the French black troops in
the occupied area, reminded the in
tcrpcllators that they had failed to
mention the acts of German soldiers
against women in Russia, Belgium
and elsewhere.
frau eitz remarks created a tre
mendous uproar and after it had
died down the greater part of the
members of the right left the house.
Upon this the independent socialists
submitted their motion, and it was

without outside assistance since the
A. E. F. ceased to provide for them.

Dependable New Merchandise at Fair Prices
The theory of "something for nothing"
was discarded long ago by thinking
people. ' Time, skill and good mate
rials cost money. By slighting quality
it is only natural that the price is lower.
But, as in every other instance, the first
price is unimportant unless the service
rendered is satisfyingly long and
Puchase quality and the price
will lake care of itself in a
manner entirely satisfactory
I t :
Thompson-Bel den & Company have '
devoted thirty-four years to the practice
of this principle, believing it to be right
beyond question. - '
