Hatfield Tells
Story of Battle
In Coal Fields
- Chief of Police at Matewan
Says Warrants Were Issued
For Detectives Employed
By Operators.
Washington, July 17. A first
hand account of the cun battle at
Matewan. W Va., growing out of
coal strike troubles was given the
senate investigating committee by
Sid Hatfield, chief of police of the
town, who took part in the fight,
with the result that six charges of
homicide still are pending- against
"The mayor issued warrants for
the arrest of all the Baldwin-Felts
detectives who came to evict miners'
families from their houses," Hatfield
said. "I went to serve the warrants
and arrest the men. Albert Felts,
the leader, turned the compliment
cn 'me and said he had a warrant
for me."
There were 13 men in the Felts
party, Hatfield said, adding:
"I asked the mayor for warrants
because they were, violating the
town ordinances by carrying guns.
We had been informed also that the
warrants for throwing these people
out of their houses were illegal."
Unions Paying Costs.
S. B. Avis, counsel for the opera
tors, asked Hatfield "if he had not
been "instrumental in bringing rifles
into the Mingo field." The witness
said he was now running a store
which sold guns.
The cost of his legal defense was
being paid, the witness said, by the
United Mine Workers.

Denies Violence Used.
He agreed with Chairman Kenyon
that the union was endeavoring "to
get the method of compensation
adopted rather than the present sys

South Dakota, askd if the union
men did not use "violence; intimida
tion and threats to get " nonunion
men to join the union."
"No," Keeney said, "that is not the
policy of the mine workers."

Sims Gets Clean Bill
On Daniels' Letter
(Continued From Fug On.)
making a frank and confidential
criticism to the secretary of the
"We find that his intention in
writing the aforesaid letter was to
bring about a betterment of condi
tions in the navy, through calling
attention to the mistakes that had
been made by the Navy department
during the early months of the war.
We find further, that Rear Admiral
Sims acted with entire propriety in
reading his letter of January 7, 1920,
to the subcommittee of the senate
committee on naval affairs when he
was requested to do so by the chair
man of the subcommittee.
Daniels Criticized.
"We find that on the very day war
broke out in Europe, August 1, 1914,
the general board wrote to becre
tary Daniels, urging him to prepare
the navy for war; that nothing was
done to follow out the recommenda
tions contained in this letter until in
April,-1916, in reply to a demand
from the senate for the production
of the aforesaid communication,
Secretary Daniels informed the sen
ate that the communication did not
refer to naval preparedness; that
until shortly before the entrance of
the United States into the war, Sec
retary Daniels opposed the organ
izing of the Navy department so that
he could prepare, the navy for war,
and in particular opposed the effec
tive creation of a planning division
in the bureau of operations, and that
said planning division was not finally
organized until some time after the
"Further, that no special attempt
was made to push the construction
for anti-submarine warfare of the
anti-submarine vessels which were
included in the 1916 program; that
Secretary Daniels also (vetoed, the
urgent request of the general: board
for an increase of tlje personnel of
the navy of 19,600 men in 1915, which
veto was at the root .of the inade
quate manning of our fleet at the
time of our entry into the war; that
between February 2, 1917, when the
United States severed diplomatic re
lations with Germany, and April 6,
when we went to war. Secretary
Daniels caused to be put into condi
tion, five more battleships and four
more cruisers, although of all our 67
destroyers, not one was ready to sail
instantly for the war zone. Had
the efforts of the Navy department
been orooerly directed, we might
have entered the war with more than
SO destroyers in condition for in
stant service overseas. - -
Sims Priased.
r "We "find that to a - large . degree
to Rear Admiral Sims belongs the
credit for bringing about the con
voy, system, which proved such a
success in protecting. our ships from
German , submarines and that the
Navy department persisted in oppos
ing this system during the first two
months of the war and did not ac
cede to it fully until some time about
the middle of July, 1917. We find
that although virtually all naval au
thorities recommended immediate
concentration of anti-submarine
forces inhe war zone, yet it was not
until Aprtf 24, 1917, that any anti
submarine raft : set . sail 'from the
United States to the war zone, and
then only six destroyers were so de
tailed. " : "V
"We find that about this time the
general board most insistently urged
that 200 anti-submarine craft be sent
immediately overseas and at the same
time pointed out that more than 200
of such" craft were, available and that,
there were over 2,000 naval guns
available wherewith to arm them.
Yet in spite of this recommendation,
Secretary Daniels so delayed the
navy that less than 30 anti-submarine
vessels had arrived in Europe
by July 1, and only 90 by December
1. In view of the fact that all of
the 90 vessels were afloat on April
6. 1917. and that 71 of them were in
the United States navy at the time
of the declaration of war, the con
clusion appears to je inevitable,
either that these 71 vessels were not
ready for war or that it was not
the policy of Secretary Daniels to
hasten their arrival in Europe. Sec
retary Daniels maintains that the1
navy was ready from "stem to
stern." Whether the arrival of these
vessels in Europe was delayed be
cause of unpreparedness or because
of the policy of Secretary Daniels,
the responsibility would seem to
rest with him."

Chicago Trlbttn-Omaha Be Leased Wire,
Washington, July 17. An all-day
session of the senate tinance commit
tee auain failed to brine forth final
committee action on the Sweet bill
for the relief of disabled veterans.
Practically all of the important
amendments have been disposed of,
but a score or more of minor changes
have been proposed. The commit
tee is scheduled to meet again Mon
day to hear Secretary of the Treas
ury Mellon further on the foreign
loan question, but an effort is being
made to have him postpone his ap
pearance until Tuesday in order that
the Monday session can be given
over entirely to the Sweet bill.
It is unlikely that the Sweet bill
will be laid before the senate before
Tuesday or Wednesday, but arrange
ments are being made to give it the
right of way over all other legislation
as soon as the finance committee
completes its consideration of the
measure. ' J
The commititee has definitely ac
cepted the recommendation of Sen
ator Smoot's subcommittee making
the proposed veterans' bureau an in
dependent organization responsible
directly to the president The com
mittee has also decided to make no
change in section 13, liberalizing the
present law so that ' ex-service men
suffering from minor disabilities may
receive treatment.
Assertions made by Senator Smoot
and others, that the bill for consoli
dation of government agencies, deal
ing with relief of ex-service men
would cost the government $343,000,
000 annually, vere denied by Repre
sentative Sweet of Iowa, author of
the measure.
After careful examination into the
subject and consultation with Col. C
R. Forbes, director of the bureau
of war risk insurance, Representative
Sweet declared that added expendi
tures which would accrue to the gov
ernment as a result of the pending
measure would be approximately

Manufacture of
Beer Urged as Way
To Aid Farmers
Move to Legalize 2.75 Per
Cent Barley Malt Bever
age Made by Minnesota
Men Before Congress.
Chlrago Tribune-Omaha nee Leaaed Wire.
Washington, July 17. Legislation
by congress to legalize 2.75 per cent
barley malt beer was urged upon
the joint congressional commission
investigating the troubles of the
farmer by R. A. Jones, representing
product' nonintoxicating with the
Kenny, representing a Minnesota
Farmer Elevators' association, as one
of the ways in which the farmers
of the northwest, particularly those
who grow barley and other coarse
grains, may be rescued from their
present financial straits. '
Mr. Jones declared that legaliza
tion of 2.75 per cent barley malt
beer would mean an addition to the
yearly income of the northwest
farmers of about $300,000,000. He
said that this sort of beer is non
intoxicating and suggested that the
commission 'establish this fact
through the use of a testing squad
under the direction of the Depart
ment of Agriculture.
Mr. Kenny, who said he comes
from the same district in Minnesota
which is represented in the house
by Representative Volstead, author
of the prohibition enforcement law,
said , that he had long experience
with the sort of beer he wants to
see legalized and that it has been
demonstrated to be nonintoxicating.
Senator Pat Harrison of Missis
sippi,- who was sitting at the time
with the commission, suggested that
Mr. Jones and Mr. Kenny take up
the question of declaring: the 2.75
Minnesota grain dealers, and Charles
attorney general. Mr. Volstead, and
the president. The two Minnesotans
declared they did not expect to dis
cuss the subject with the attorney
general, but would talk it over , with
Mr, Volstead.,
Mr. Jones told the . commission
that a petition will be circulated
among the farmers in Minnesota
the two Dakotas, Iowa and Wis
consin, to urge legislation of this
kind of beer and that later these
petitions will be presented to con
gress. He declared that the move
ment is purely one by farmers and
is not backed or supported by the

C. of C. Picnic Crowd Turns
To Outdoor Sports and
One of the naval reserve boats,
chartered for the annual picnic of
the Goodfellowship committee of the
Chamber bf Commerce, was ; rowed
with such vigor that, it was sent
headon into the sand of the beach
at Carter lake and there it remained
hors du combat the rest of the eve

the rescue and pulled the craft into
deep water. "
J. T. Dysart, chairman " of the

afraid to go in swimming for fear
of being seized with cramps.
