Missouri Bourbon Senator
Says Denial of Promise
Annuls Article X.
KANSAS CITY, Mo., Oct. 6.
After asserting that President Wil
ton had made a statement at the
peace conference promising Rou
mania and Serbia military assist
ance under the proposed league of
nations covenant, James A.vReed of
Missouri, United States senator,
democrat, late today sent a telegram
to Senator Selden P. Spencer, his
republican colleague, declaring that
the statement was a matter of rec
ord and suggesting that the presi
dent produce the stenographic re
ports of the peace conference show
ing "just what was said."
Senator Reed's telegram was in
response to one from Senator
Spencer asking information om the
subject. Senator Reed's message de
clared the statement was made by
the president in an address before
the peace conference May SI, 1919,
but "did not get by the censor" un
til December 3, 1919, when it was
brought to-this country by a news
paper correspondent and published
in the Washington Star of that date.
I Speech in Congress Record.
"The speech also appeared in full
in the Congressional Record of De
cember 4, 1919," the telegram con
tinued, adding that it also was copy
righted by a newspaper and given
wide circulation throughout the
"On several occasions I called the
attention of the senate to this
speech," the telegram said. "My
speeches by scores of thousands
were circulated through the coun
try. Numerous publicists and speak
crs have repeatedly referred to and
commented upon this declaration.
"Its authenticity was never dis
puted in the senate or elsewhere to
my knowledge until Mr. Tumulty
recently denounced it as false. The
speech bears upon its face evidence
of its authenticity, as it is couched
in the well-known phraseology of
Wilson Hides Records.
"In view of these facts, a discern
ing public will not be inclined to ac
cept Mr. Tumulty's denial. There is
one way this dispute can be settled.
Let the president produce the steno
graphic records of the peace confer
ence, showing just what was said.
These official reports have been stu
diously suppressed and kept secret,
although the senate foreign relations
committee asked expressly for them.
"It was stated by Clemenceau's
private secretary that the reason the
sessions were held in secret was be
cause the president of the United
States insisted upon it as against
Clemenceau's own judgment.
"That the letter's statement is ab
solutely correct is shown by the tes
timony of Secretary Lansing, given
before the foreign relations commit
tee of the senate August 8, 1919."

TULSA. Okla., Oct. 6. (Special.)
Harding is coming into this state
Saturday. His, purpose is xto clinch
the republican effort to win a sena
torship from the democrats. He may
succeed. But when you have said he
may succeed you have gone as far
as even the most optimistic repub
lican dares to hope.
There is a factional condition
among the democrats which, to
gether with come other factors, may
endanger the democratic senatorial
candidate, but omitting the senatorial
situation, when you. turn to the main
issue between Harding and Cox there
is no reason to expect that Okla
homa will go otherwise than normal.
And in Oklahoma "normal" means a
democratic majority ot 30,000 or more.
The republican national leaders in
New York and Chicago are giving it
out that they expect to carry Okla
homa for Harding, but here on the
ground the evidence does not justify
any such expectati ns. And even as
to the senatorship, if the republicans
have no better prospect elsewhere
than they have here for their effort
to win that from the democrats, then
their case is not promising.
Bitter Contest Develop.
The facts about the senatorial
fight are these: For 13 years ever
since Oklahoma became a state
Thomas Gore has b-sen one of its
senators and the state has a loyalty
for him that was partly due to affec
tionate pride in his intellectual
achievements in spite of total
In his last election six years ago
Gore carried very county in the
primaries and every count but three
in the election.
But right after that came the war.

SALEM, Or.. Oct. 6 (Special.)
That President Wilson has decided to
appoint a shipping board under the
merchant marine act, effective last
June, was the information contained
in a telegram received at the offices
of Senator McNary today. First news
of the contemplated selection of the
board was given out by Mr. Tumulty,
secretary to the. president, nd was
relayed to Oregon through Senator
McNary's Washington headquarters.

on the board," said Mr. McNary to

this state to that end will be force

telegraph urging the selection of an
Oregon man for this important posi

board would not be appointed until

its authors. Under the measure the

conceded that California will have

"Distributors reserve the right to

"They are not wining that the com

Although he still maintains his In
nocence so far as any bad check op
erations in Portland are concerned,
Glenn T. Aldrich. ex-assistant pay
master in the navy with the rank of
lieutenant, yesterday confessed to
Deputy District Attorney Deich and
Commander Elder, U. S. N., that he
had put out "bad paper" in Chicago
recently to the amount of about $2000.
After a series of arrest3 and re
leases. Aldrich Is now held at the
city jail awaiting the arrival of a
Chicago detective, who will return
him to that city for prosecution.
Carounal In Staged.
Aldrich told the deputy prosecutor
yesterdayhat he staged a big drunk
in Chicago after he had been dis
charged from a high-salaried position.
During the time he was drunk, he
said, he started writing checks.
He says he lost his mental balance
completely until he found himself at
Great Falls, Mont., more than two
weeks after he had started his
carousal. At Great Falls, so his story
runs, he married a gy-I to whom he
had been engaged for several months,
and after the wedding he went first
to Seattle and then came to Portland.
It was while here last week that
he was first arrested on charge of
passing a check for $130 without
having sufficient funds to meet pay
ment. He procured money frojn his
ratner at Jefferson City, Mo., to make
good this check, but a day later he
was rearrested when two local de
partment stores presented a large
numoer or cnecks bearing the slena
ture of H. L. Aldrich and Lieutenant
Cheek Authorship Denied.
Aldrich has consistently denied
putting out the checks In Portland,
and produced naval records to show
that he was in and around New York
at the time the checks were cashed at
the local department stores.
After a thorough investigation he
was released from tne second charge
aiter Burns operatives and local of
ficials expressed belief he did not
write these checks. A few days later,
however, a telegraphic warrant was
received from Chicago, where. It Is
reported, he Is wanted for passing
bad checks totaling $4000.
Local officials had begun to believe
that Aldrich was again the victim of
mistaken identity, until yesterday,
when he called Deputy District Attor
ney Deich and Commander Elder to
his cell and there admitted to them
he had cashed numerous bad checks
while on a big drunk In Chicago.
Trouble 'old to Wife.
He told them that it was not until
he was fully sobered in Seattle that
he began to examine the stubs of his
check book and found that he was
considerably overdrawn. He says he
cannot figure where hi Is more than
$1800 short, although advices from
Chicago place the amount at $4000.
Aldrich further told the officials he
had intended returning to Chicago
and straighten out his trouble there,
bjut his several arrests In Portland
had spoiled his plans. He said he tele
graphed his wife about his trouble
here and then wrote to her of his af
fairs in Chicago. He received an an
swering telegram to the effect that
she had started for Chicago in an ef
fort to settle his financial difficul
ties. He says his father will assist
According to Commander Elder,
Aldrich's naval record is absolutely
clean so far as is known. As an as-,
sistant caymasisr during the war,
Aldrich at times handled as hiet as
$104,000 in cash at one time, but his
accounts were correct to the very
cent when he left the service.
Check Pnni OK Marshall Field.
Aldrifh indicated he would not
fight extradition to Chicago, as he
believes he will be able to settle the
bad checks upon his arrival there. He
admits he passed one bad check for
$750 on Marshall Field. He says the
stub book shows signatures other
than his own, and he believes that
some of bis companions wrote out
checks while he was so drunk he did
not know what he was doing.
Aldrich is 36 years old and of good
appearance. He was in the paymaster
corps of the navy several years ago,
resigning in 1911. He entered the
navy again at the outbreak of the
waf and served until after the armi

tBasbaII Kditor of the New Tork TrlNjne.
NEW YORK, Oct. 6. (Special.) At
the moment of plunging to press a,
group of infuriated Cleveland ball
players are looking for the sap-headed
bard who dashed off this ancient lyric
with all the atmosphere of truth.
OM Grimes is dead, that good old man;
We ne'er shall see him more.
He used to wear a long black coat
All buttoned up before.
He once had something on the ball.
Put now his withered wing
I.Irs underneath the coffin lid
Beyond its final fling.
So old Grimes Is dead. Is he?
Yes; about as dead as Babo Ruth.
Man-o'-war, Jack DempEcy and the
Corpse Come to I.tffc.
In the presence of 24.000 astonished
rooters the old ccrpse tossed off his
winding sheet today and turned back
the powerful Cleveland attack Into a
shutout rout. Bither some poet has
been lieing for a number of years or
the world's greatest miracle has de
veloped. In either case somecne should page
Sir Oliver Lorise and verify the mat
ter at once. Believing that old Grimes
was not only dead, but buried, no
wonder the Cleveland Indians were
startled when he bgan to break a
series of fast balls and baffling curves
over the inside and outside corner of
Ihe plate. Who wouldn't be? If yoti
were batting and a pitcher thought to
be dead for 37 years suddenly began
hanging fast ones around your neck
wouldn't you be startled, too?
Bneliy Hit Snag.
TYith old Grimes safely back on this
side of the Styx the aroused Dodgers
played like champions, drove Jim
Bagby off the reservation and moved
up on even terms with the Indians
who never had a chance. In only one
inning could Cleveland bunch as many
as two safe hits. In the seventh
Gardner and O'Neil singled, but when
Speaker rushed Graney up as a pinjh
hitter old Grimes struck him out. In
the eighth Grimes doled out thru
passes, but even with these lavish
gifts to work on the Cleveland attack
was so powerless before his fancy
pitching that not a run resulted.
When a ball club can gather three
pa.sses in one round and then can't
drive a run across you may get some
idea of how badly its attack was
Indian Support Excellent.
On the other side of the argument
Brooklyn found Jim Bas'oy a much
softer proposition than Stanley Cove
leskle had been the day before. Bagby
was good enough to w in 31 ball games
through the year, the only pitcher
in either league who reached the 30
mark. But he still looked to be a
bit weary after the heavy burden
he had carried all year and only a
pair of lucky turns saved him from
a bister rout. Through the first
three innings the Brooklyn attack hit
him with savage earnestness, but line
drives were misplaced or double
plays yanked him out of greater
trouble just as he seemed to be
sinking for the third and last time.
Bagby drew the same brilliant sup
port from Tris Speaker that Cove
lcskie did, but even the Texan's spec
tacular catches were not enough to
save his hide. Speaker, in addition
to killing off a brace of doubles, in
terrelated a single and double of his
own. probably enraged at the duplic
ity involved In the rumor of old
Grimes' demise. But it wasn't enough.
For in addition tb Grimes' fine pitch

against the fence for long blows and
on one occasion his stocky framo

field in the wake of a running catch.
Griffith Drives in Runs.
And Griffith did something more
than support old Grimes. He drove
in two of Brooklyn's three runs with
a double in the third and a single
in the fifth- He was the boy in the
pinch. At the same time it took the
finest play of the game to keep him
In the second Grimes singled and
Olson was safa on Bagby's low throw

Griffith's double scored Urimea. With
