PONZI BOOK AUDIT
TO LAST FOUR DAYS
Financier Is Confident of Re-
BANK PLANS ANNOUNCED
Fifty Per Cent of Profits Will Be
Paid to Depositors, Avers Man
BOSTON. Mass., July 30. (Special.)
Audit of the books of Charles Ponzi
by Edwin L. Pride, acting for Daniel
J. Gallagher, United States attorney,
is expected to be completed in from
three to four days
Just what this audit will show is
problematical. Business has been
' conducted on such a large scale with
such a comparatively small force of
clerks that it is expected the auditoi
will have difficulty in getting at the
desired facts. Ponzi calmly said that
he feared nothing; that, in fact, he
invited the inspection, and declared
that the result of the examination
would show that he had been doing a
legal business. "
"I want my position clearly under
stood," said Ponzi. "I do not chal
lenge or defy the state or government
officials. I have volunteered to assist
in any examination of my books and
will render any co-operation possible
In assisting in obtaining speedy re
sults." Method Query Is Evaded.
"Does that - mean, Mr. Ponzi, that
you are prepared to divulge your
methods of doing business?" he was
"It means that what I propose to
show is that my assets are in excess
of my outstanding liabilities."
Ponzi issued, the following state
"As far as I can see, I will reopen
business and resume my operations.
I might accept an offer, made yester
day, of $10,000,000 from a New York
concern to turn over my interest to
them. It is a very large concern
with extensive connections In this'
country and abroad.
"An interview with a New York
banker in regard to this offer was
what prompted me yesterday to dodge
my friends, the reporters."
When asked if he was still of the
same mind in regard to starting a
bank which would pay DO per cent of
the profits to the depositors, Mr. Ponzi
aid: "There is no doubt about it."
$1,450,000 Told In Three Days.
Ponzi paid out $1,450,000 to de
positors in three days this week, ac-
coiding to his own figures. On Tues
day he paid out $750,000, Wednesday
$500,000, Thursday $200,000 and today
expected, to pay less than $200,000.
There were never more than 25 or 30
persons in line today awaiting the
return of their money. Earlier in the
week the number amounted to 300.
Clarence W. Barron, of Boston news
bureau, said today: "The very fact
that Ponzi claims to have first $10,
000,000 and now $24,000,000 of per
sonal wealth, and his exhibit of $1,
500,000 on deposit in one trust com
pany, with declarations that he has
many millions more in this country,
is absolute proof that the 200 per
cent Interest he has promised the
depositors wirti his concern does not
come wholly from international reply

"Right under the nose of govern
ment officers he has been paying
United States money to one line of
depositors from deposits made by a
It was reported today that Worces
ter Italians have invested more than
$50,000 with Ponzi. Ponct's Lawrence-street
office was making ready
to resume business, and it was de
clared that the withdrawals in Man
chester, N. H., where thousands were I
invested, have been small. A branch
office was opened in Portland, Me.,
a week ago.
With the withdrawal today of Dis
trict Attorney Pelletier from the case,
the investigation by the officers of

put in the hands of Attorney-General
Allen and United States District At
Ponzi was served! this forenoon with
a notice of a hearing next Tuesday in
the $1,000,000 suit brought against
him by Joseph Daniels, a Hanover
street furniture dealer. He was also
served with papers in an attachment
brought by a former department of
justice official against a group of
Ponzi's alleged agents. The trustee

150 members of the club were present.
His subject was the "League of Na
tions." Dr. J. W. Morrow, who re
cently returned from the meeting of
the national democratic committee at
Columbus, O., was also a speaker.
Judge King gave an educational
and explanatory talk on the impor
tance of the league 'of nations ques
tion as a campaign issue. He quoted
at length from the American Bar as
sociation journal, which contained a
report from an association committee
which favored the league. The judge
expressed himself as being of the
opinion that the coming campaign
would be the most important in Amer
ican history, not even excepting the
Lincoln campaign, when1 the eman
cipation of one class of people was at
stake. Today, he declared, the "eman
cipation of the entire world" wag to
Dr. Morrow made a detailed report

LABOR KEY TO SHORTAGE
CXIOX PACIFIC OFFICIAL
PORTMXD TO COXFER.
Vice-President Adams Says if Men
Accept Xew Wage, Cars Will
Soon Be Available.
That the strike situation in the east
holds the key to the railroad situ
ation throughout the country, was
the declaration of H. M. Adams, vice
president of the Union Pacific sys
tem, in charge of traffic, who ar
rived in Portland yesterday. Mr.
Adams is on a tour of inspection of
the line, and expects to remain here
until the middle of next week, con
ferring with local officials and study
ing traffic problems at this end of
"If railway employes accept the
wage scale recently announced at
Chicago, and go to work along the
efficient lines which they are capable
of, the railroad situation, will be a
long way toward a sortition," Sir.
Adams said. "The foundation of the
present car shortage and congestion
difficulties lies in the fact that the
east is flooded with cars and gorged
with shipments which have been de
layed because of labor difficulties,
and as a result the west has been
unable to get the cars it needs."
Mr. Adams formerly fnade his home
in Portland some years ago, when
he was a traffic official of the Ore
gon-Washington line. He is accom
panled on his present trip by Mrs.
H. E. Lounsberry and William Mc-

S HI FEIN, CHARGE
Carr.on Cites Conspiracy to
RED ALLANCE RECALLED
Propaganda, Bureaus Are Operated
in United States, Egypt and
India, Says Union Leader.
LONDON, July 30. (By the Asso
ciated Press.) An official report con
cerning the reception Thursday by
Premier Lloyd George of a deputation
of unionist peers and members of the
house of commons to discuss Ireland,
shows that the chief spokesmen were
the duke of Northumberland and Sir
Edward Carson, unionist leader, both
of whom emphasized that the Sinn
Fein was part of a great world-wide
conspiracy In which bolshevism and
German revenge were playing an ac
tive part, aiming at the destruction
of Great Britain.
The duke -illuded to an alliance al
leged to have been formed early in
1919 between the Sinn Fein and bol
shevik! through Dr. Patrick McCar
tan, Sinn Fein "ambassador" to the
United States, and declared that the
Sinn Fein was represented at all the
conferences in Russia leading up to
the third Internationale and the Sinn
Fein programme was identical with
that propounded by the third Inter
nationale. FropagandiMtM In United States.
Sir Edward Carson elaborated his
theme of the existence in the United
States and other parts of the world
of propaganda bureaus representing
the discontented people of Egypt,
India and Ireland. - '
He argued it was from the time
that Frank P. Walsh of the Indian
propaganda bureau in Americarcame
to Ireland last year that- the Sinn
Fein became unmanageable in a con
spiracy which would eventually beat
the British government."
He quoted from speeches of Judge
D. F. Cohalan of New York, to sup
port his arguments. He referred to
the existence of a German propaganda
bureau in Zurich to foment Irish dis
content and declared Germany never
wouia aDanaon her struggle for
revenge. He also spoke disdainfully
of the principles of self-determina
tion being applied to all small na
tlons without consideration of the in
terests of larger nations.
Lloyd George Wanta Remedies.
Premier Lloyd-George exDressed
disappointment that the deputation
had failed to suggest possible reme
dies. He agreed there was a bolshev-
ist support behind the anti-British
activities in Ireland and said he would
not be surprised if there also was
bolshevlst money. "But," he added.
we would make a mistake if we came
to the conclusion that the, Sinn Fein
is purely a bolshevlst conspiracy
against Great Britain."
The premier touched on the diffi
culty of finding necessary troops and
officers for carrying out a military
policy in Ireland "under conditions
worse and more wearing to men's
nerves than the late war."
"We are doing our best." he con
tinued, "but we want recruits. We
want officers to lead and to guide.
We want a thousand to put down this
Public Opinion Needed.
Then, having alluded to the drastic
nature of the government's coming
bill and the difficulty of seeina:
criminals are brought to Justice, he
emphasized the necessity of having
public opinion behind any effective
law.. "That," he said, "you can onlv
do by making It clear that this is
not your sole remedy or your last
Mr. Lloyd George contended that
there was need for a side-by-side
policy for enforcing the law and for
a policy of granting Ireland any
measure of liberty and self-government
consistent with the supremacy
and security of the United Kingdom.
He emphasized the necessity of get
ting the vast mass of British opinion,
especially the work on the class, be
hind the government's policy, declar
ing: "I do not believe you can gov
ern Ireland under any other condi
tions." SPEAKERS ARE BANQUETED

food on the dump, and the rats are
kept busy in their search for suste

Mann purchased a virus manufactured
in France. This was used in ridding
