WASHINGTON, Oct. 30. (Special.)
K. K. Kllsworth. liquidating officer
of the committee on public informs
tion the Creel committee has found
funds provided for the committee
scattered in every country ensaRed
in the world war on the side of the
allies. Thousands of dollars, in checks
and other paper, were picked up from
the floors of the committee rooms or
duir out of desk drawers. Mr. Ells
worth found that, although the law
limited funds to meet expenses of
this committee to $1000, it used
eums up to hundreds of thousands.
The first deficiency bill, now ready
for the president's signature, asserts
that "authority is hereby granted the
director of the council of national
dpfense to expend during the fiscal
year 1920 the sum of $32,000 now to
the credit of the committee on public
information for necessary expenses
incurred therefor since July 1, 1919,
end for the expenses of auditing and
closing the accounts and affairs of
the said committee." The purpose of
this legislation is to wind up the odds
and ends of the publicity organiza
tion. A thorough investigation of the ex
penditures of the Creel committee is
bein made. Kvidence in the hands
of the senate committee on appropria
tions shows a carelessness and disre
gard for provisions of the law that
congressmen consider almost criminal,

Tn a report to Senator "Warren,
chairman of the senate committee. Mr.
Kllsworth, who is of the council of
rational defense, points out:
"The law making the appropriation
fcr the committee on public informa
tion had a provision for the advance
of funds to meet expenses in sums
not to exceed $1000. Notwithstanding
this limitation of amounts that could
be advanced from the regular govern
ment appropriation, advances were
made from the allotment"by the presi
dent of sums varying from $100 to
"These checks were made in vari
ous sums to some 300 or 400 people,
fcnd accounts are now being set up,
charging the men with the amounts
advanced and crediting them with
such payments as they show to have
been properly made. The determin
ing of just how much of this money
should be returned to the government
is badly complicated by the fact that
many of the men to whom large ad
vances were made in turn advanced
ireney to others."
Mr. Kllsworth declared that imme
diately after the signing of the ar
mistice a year ago. "practically all
ot the officials of the committee on
public information throw up their
jobs and returned to private life,
leaving but a few of the minor offi
cials in charge of the affairs of the
committee. - -

"When the affairs of the commit

K. II. Hobbs, formerly disbursing
clerk and chief of the division of bus

Mr. Hobbs turned over to me some
$76,000 in checks, money orders, etc,
which had been received as reim
bursements by' the committee on pub

were dated in February, March, April,

"Later, in going through the files,
I found, several thousand dollars'

had been made and which had been
thrown in various file cases without
any effort to realize on the checks.

find that money had been left in some
banks in Russia which were later
taken over by the bolsheviks, from
which it has been impossible to with

anything can ever be realized from

Former Staff Chief Takes England
to Task for Promiscuous Land
Grabbing in East.
(Copyright by the New Tor World. Pub
lished by Arrangement).
LONDON, Oct. 30. (Special Cable.)
Jn a strong plea- for the league of
t.ations. General Sir Frederick Mau
rice, formerly chief of operations of
the British general staff, contends in
the Daily News It is the only possible
means of getting a reduction of arm
aments and securir-g peace.
"During the latter part of the war,"
he says, "under the pretense that we
were beating the Germans in the west
by defeating- the Turks in the east,
we went In for a great deal of pro
miscuous land grabbing, without any
clear idea of what we were going to
do with the land grabbed. The result
we have got ourselves in a great
number of awkward problems and
have aroused the suspicions of our
friends, many of whom believe that
while using our adherence to the
eague' covenant to throw dust in
their eyes we sedulously engaged in
painting the map red.
The United States is hesitating to
come into the league" for this very
reason, such measures as the Anglo-
Persian agreement having aroused'
their profound distrust.
"I have been trying hard for a long
time to arrive at some practical meth
od of obtaining a real, permanent re
duction of armaments, but can find
none at all promising, other than the
establishment of an effective league
of nations. Our foreign policy must
be to back the league."
Inability to Obtain Sufficient Sugar
From Cuba to Warrant Further
Control Given as Reason.
WASHINGTON. Oct. 30. The Unit
ed States sugar equalization board to--ciay
telegraphed Senator McNary, re
publican, Oregon, in charge of the
senate sugar investigation, that it was
pieparlng to "wind up its activities"
in view of inability to obtain suffi
cient sugar from Cuba to warrant
further government control.
In spite of the board's advices. Sen
tor "McNary said the senate would
proceed to enact legislation designed
to aid the public in the sugar short
age, and also provide for continuation
of the board, even should the present
members resign. A meeting of the
senate agricultural committee was
called for Saturday to act on pending
Senator McNary said the sugar
board's plans evidently were due to
the committees refusal to enact'leg-
siation to provide for licensing of
sugar refiners ind dealers. The com
mittee now plans, he said, to present
a bill continuing the -board and au
thorizing It to purchase Cuban sugar.
The board,, in its telegram to Sen
ator McNary, said It was impossible
to acquire "any" great amount of the
new Cuban sugar crop at this time
at a reasonable price," and that the
board was planning to close its af
fairs except n a minor way, includ
ing supervision of equitable distri
bution of sugar left on its present
Cuban contract.
H. E. Byram Values Road at
Less Than $750,000.
Congressman's Charges Branded as
"Scandalous nd Outrageous" by
ex-Air Service Official.
NEW YORK, Oct. $0. Charges that
the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul
railroad la attempting to buy the
$6,000,000 government road in Wash
ington, built to carry spruce timber,
at a bargain were aeni-d today by
John D. Ryan, former director of the
air service, and "H. E. Byram, federal
manager of the Milwaukee". Both men
testified betore the congressional sub
committee holding hearings here into
air service expenditures.
Mr. Byram said the Milwaukee never
wanted the line built and did not
want to buy it now. If it were a go
ing concern, he said, it would be
worth much more than the listed
salvage value, but he would nof give
$750,000 for it now, as it would be
a long time baore any timber would
be coming out of it.
In this respect Mr. Byram cor
roborated testimony by Mr. Ryan, a
director of the Milwaukee.
Mr. Ryan engaged in a sharp col
loquy with Representative - Magee,
republican. New York, the result of
which was that the former air serv
ice director agreed to prepare for the
committee a statement showing why
he regarded as "scandalous and out
rageous" statements about him made
in a telegram by the committee to
Secretary Baker asking that the sale
be held up.
Magee Explains Telegram.
Magee said he and Representative
Frear of Wisconsin, the other ma
jority member of the committee, had
telegraphed Secretary Baker so that
the Milwaukee could not buy the gov
ernment road "for a song."
Explaining his revision of a spruce
contract with the Siema, Carey. Kef
baugh corporation, builder of the gov
ernment raih-oad connecting with the
Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul, Mr.
Ryan said the contract as originally
drawn did not sufficiently protect the
Stems told Ryan that all the cor
poration expected to get out of the
spruce-, contract was an opportunity
to take over the mills and other equip
ment when the government was
through with them.
Ryan Defends Plane.
Mr. Ryan gave the committee an
account of the accomplishments of the
United States in producing- aircraft
and praised the De Haviland Four as
a fighting machine. When the armi
stice was signed, he said, the United
States had produced 7,800.000 horse
power in airplane engines, equal to
the power of one-eighth of the 65,000
locomotives of the United States.
At the battle of St. Mihiel and in
r-the first day of the Argonne, he said.
he saw the firs. American fighting
planes in actSori 313 De Havilands.
The men . 'Whi)f tlewJ them had nothing
but praise for them, he added.
Rlckenbaeker Is Quoted.
Representative Magee interjected
that Eddie Rickenbacker, American
premier ace. had testified that the
De Havilands were awkward and in
efficient. "Call the "Flying Parson then."
answered Mr. Ryan, "he has just
flown 6000 miles in one."
Mr. Ryan informed the committee
that production of aircraft had been
so speeded up that three weeks be
fore the armistice was signed a let
up was ordered because of lack of
shipping. On the day the armistice
was signed. 686 machines were at
ports awaiting to be sent to France.
He said that the Martin bomber,
which was ready when the war ended.
would hae proved the best bomber
of the war.

HAMBURG, Oct. 30. (By the Asso
ciated Press.) A large number of
those persons in Hamburg who have
been punished for crime, especially

For the Belgians, this probably was
the busiest day they have had in ,thls

fore 8 o'clock, when the king went
to Annapolis to review the midship
men of the naval academy and the
queen went to Baltimore to inspect
two hospitals. Part of the afternoon
was devoted by both to receiving
honorary degrees. Albert was made
a doctor of laws both by George
Washington university and the Catho
lic university, while Elizabeth was
made a doctor of letters by Trinity
Both of the rulers were greeted by
Cardinal Gibbons, chancellor of the
Catholic university and president of
the trustees of Trinity. The venerable
prelate welcomed them affectionate
ly and hailed the king as "One of
the most inspiring heroes of ancient
or modern times." ,
The queen's only formally delivered
address in' America was her response
to the faculty of Trinity when the
degree was conferred upon her.

Public Called On to Be Saving
Pending Legislation to Relieve
Shortage of Sweetening.
ington, Oct. 30. "The bill I have
introduced in the senate as a remedy
for the sugar snortage. 'differs from
my two previous bills in that It car
ries no license provision." said Sena
tor McNary. "By terms of the
measure the president is directed to
empower the sugar equalization board
to acquire raw sugar, if It can be
obtained at a reasonable price.
"In view of the parliamentary sit
uation which requires, a unanimous
consent to bring up new legislation
during the pendency of the treaty of
peace, I found it impracticable to
enact legislation Into law which per
mitted the licensing of those handling
sugar on account of considerable op
position in the senate. I hope the law
now proposed will speedily pass.
"Opinions may differ as to the rea
son of the present serious sugar sit
uation, but my judgment, based upon
the hearings had before 'the sub-committee
of the senate committee on
agriculture and fo.-estry, is that an
unusual demand for sugar is largely
responsible for the fthortage. This
arises from extravagant habits of
living and a greater Indulgence in
candies and soft drinks since pro
hibition has settled over the country.
"Our pre-war consumption was 80
pouqds per capita per annum and dur
ing the first nine months of this year,
sugar to the amount of our pre-war
consumption was either consumed or
taken out of the channels of trade
and at the present rate the consump
tion this year would reach 92 pounds
an individual.
"Unquestionably a portion of the
sugar supply has gone off the market
or on shelves for future consumption
in fear of a tremendous shortage dur
ing 1920 and it is my belief that it
the bill I have proposed is enacted
into law, this situation will be largely
remedied if the sugar equalization
board will purchase the Cuban crop
which is the great reservoir upon
which we usually draw for our supply
of sugar. If this board purchases the
Cuban crop, the Louisiana cane crop
and the sugar beet crop of the west,
it can control prices and compel the
equitable distribution by virtue of
having a monopoly on the raw
"I think we should all be as opti
mistic and as saving as possible."
After an X-Ray Examination
Was Told . Nothing Could
Help Her In Perfect
Health Now.
"My wife has gained twenty pounds
since she commenced taking Tanlac
and is enjoying better health in every
way than she has for over eight
years." said F. K. Martin, a . well
known employe at the Ames Ship
Yards, and who lives at 8410 Twenty
fourth street South. Seattle, Wash
ington, the other day.
"Yes, sir, Tanlac did the work for
her all right," continued Mr. Martin,
"and it is the only medicine that has
done her any good since her trouble
first started. My wife had a bad
case of stomach trouble and every
time she ate anything she would have
the worst sort of cramping spells.
Then gas would form and get up Into
her chest and cause her heart to pal
pitate something awful, and some
times this was so bad she could hard
ly get a good breath. She was very
nervous, too, and would lie awake
night after night and not sleep a
wink. She also suffered from head
aches and finally she got so weak
and run down she couldn't do her
housework, and spent a great part of
her time in bed. After having an
X-ray made of her stomach she was
told that nothing could be done for
her. and she just gradually got weak
er all the time.
"This was the condition she was in
when a friend of hers came to see her
one day and told her about Tanlac.
Well, sir. 1 went out and got a bottle
of this medicine and she commenced
taking It, and to my surprise she be
gan to pick up right away. She has
taken seven bottles so far, and 1
never saw such a change in anybody
in my life. She is as well and strong
now as she ever was in her life. She
has a fine appetite and eats just any
thing she wants and she never suf
fers from it afterwards. In fact her
stomach seems to be in perfect condi
tion again. These awful headaches
have left her, too, and her nerves
have steadied down so much that she
sleeps like a child every night. It is
wonderful the way she has gained In
weight and strength. She can do all
her housework with perfect ease
now, and just feels fine all the time.
She believes in Tanlac and so do I.
and we never expect' to be without
a bottle of it in the house. I am
more than glad to recommend Tan
lac to everybody."
