U'KST DENNIS. Mass.. Aug. 20.
(Special.) A refusal by the select
men of West Dennis to grant him a
sanitarium license has not deterred
Jr. J. l.ee Hanson from going right
ahead with the development of his
'gland factory" in this, the most
staid section of the Old Bay state.
Dr. Hanson sat smoking pensively
on his "factory veraniia luuajr
while his goats and sheep and rab
bits the monkeys haven't yet ar
rived cavorted about the place de
veloping nice fat strong glands
which some day may adorn the ana
tomy of a wealthy Conrad in quesi
of his youth.
"Ouwntown the outraged citizens
of tne community fussed and fumed
as to what they could do and there
was high talk of the "immorality"
and ungodliness of the modern idea
of scrambling animals and human
beings together in an effort to ex
tend ihe biblical life and portion of
three-score years and ten.
Dr. HaiMOn I npcrturbed.
Dr. Hanson says he doesn't need a
license to operate the "factory" and
that his experiments will go ahead
regardless of what the countryfolk
think of this "new-fangled" notion.
The trouble began when the clinic
represented by Dr. Hanson, a spe
cialist in glandular pathology, pur
chased one of the old farming prop
erties here and announced to the
world that henceforth West Dennis
would have something besides its
tradition to boast about.
West Dennis, he said, was about
to have a gland farm, a real gland
farm where the fountain of youth
would bubble and gurgle for the
aged and where defective children
might be treated for their afflic
tions. Furthermore the doctor announced
the West Dennis "gland farm" was
to conduct many varied and radical
experiments in glandular pathology.
For this purpose it was to keep vast
numbers of goals, rabbits, guinea
pigs. etc.. upon which these experi
ments would be conducted.
(lands tome Too Clone.
Residents of West Dennis had
heard about glands before the farm
was established. They read of them
in the newspapers. They chuckled
over the news of them or discussed
them gravely, whichever might be
their individual altitude on things
glandular. Hut. this was in the quiet
repose of W'est Dennis far from the
scene of the glands. But when to
their amazement the glands were
brought right into West Dennis and
they were obliged to rub elbows
with them, so to speak, quite a dif
ferent situation presented itself.
Then the fun began.
Residents stood open-mouthed on
the roadsides 'and watched the
glands, alive, kicking and squealing,
. brought in in motor trucks.
From that moment the town was
split into factions.
"I can't bear to think of it; I just
can't bear to think of it," wept one
lloston matron. "1 have been com
ing to West Dennis for years to en
joy its quaint surroundings and its
traditions. I intended to write some
poetry this" year and, my dear, I'm
just too upset to do a thing. All I
hear in the town is glands. My
friends, in their letters, ask me
about glands. I am almost mad
from glands. They are positively
On the other hand, many of the
townspeople welcomed a glimmer of
the outside in West Dennis. They
wanted the gland farm and didn't
hesitate to say so. On .this issue
lifelong friendships were shattered.
The one apparently least concerned
was Dr. Hanson. He went cheer
fully about his work and in due time
applied for license to conduct a sani
tarium. Mertinjc tnritclj Attended.
Never before was a town meeting
so largely attended as llu- one in
which Dr. Hanson's sanitarium li
cense was thrashed out. The select
men, Caleb E. Crowell, William
Crowell and W. S. Rogers, gravely
listened to the storm, and then just
as gravely announced a license
would not be issued.
Dr. Hanson replied with equal
gravity that he intended to conduct
his experiments in West Dennis,
license or no license.
Next day came a fight the first
fight West Dennis has known In
years when two young townsmen
engaged in an altercation over the
relative organic position of the thy
roid gland and its physical func
tions. The residents are still won
dering and the fur is still flying.

PEK IN, Aug. 20. Signs multiply
that China is likely to have a fur
ther civil war, possibly precipitated
by the imminent retirement from
Tientsin of President Li Yuan Hung,
coupled with the resignation of the
General Chang Tso-Lin has fully
recovered from his spring losses
and earnestly is training his troops
under Russians and other foreign
ers, also having ample money.
General Wu Pei-Fu Is unable to
obtain constructive action in Pekin
by his dictatorship and sees increas
ing signs that General Chang, with
support from the Anfu clique, hopes
to take advantage of the present
situation in Pekin by a renewed ef
fort to dominate the capital politi
cally. While a small group honestly is
striving to bring re-unification, the
fact remains that militarists are
busier than ever, building machines
to maintain individual supremacy
in their respective spheres.

father, John D. himself, adds Ma

Although the rumor that Ma-thilde's-
marriage with the Swiss
ridingmaster will cut her off from
her share in the Rockefeller mil
lions has never been confirmed, it
is generally understood that Edith
Rockefeller McCormick is at pres
ent contributing nothing to the
support of the daughter who defied
her. Nor. moreover, has Mathilde,
who Is still a minor, as yet come
into any substantial bequests from
the oil king's fortunes.
Still on Papa's Hands.
Mathilde," in popular parlance, is
"still on papa's hands." Mr. Mc
Cormick, in the meanwhile, is tour
ing Europe incognito with his new
bride, the- beautiful Polish opera
singer, pjaying the flattering role
of her fouroh husband.
It has been stated that McCor
mick gave Ganna. upon their mar
riage, a cash wedding gift running
into millions, and is in the process
of purchasing a princely estate as
a love nest for the pair. Reports,
however, are divided as to whether
this is to be In Lake Forest or in
Switzerland. How the European
connections of the family would re
gard a sudden economy streak is
problematical, to say the least.
McCormick also has promised the
fair Ganna, it is said, to make her
the greatest opera star in the world.
If America is to be made the scene
of her triumphs -snags would be en
countered in the influence of his ex-
wife. For five years Mr. and Mrs.
McCormick were patron saints of
opera in Chicago.
Battle of Opera Pendins.
Mrs. Rockefeller McCormick's in
fluence with the present Chicago
Opera company remains as potent
as that of her ex-husband, and her
financial resources are even greater.
Also the fair Ganna has had one un
fortunate experience with opera in
Chicago when, two years ago. Direc
tor Maroonuzzl refused to let her
sing the title role in "Zaza" after
hg had heard her in the first re
hearsal. Edith Rockefeller McCormick,
meanwhile, divorced by her hus
band, deserted by her children, all
three of whom turned against her
for the father at the time of the
divorce, seeks solace for her lone
liness in Freudian psychology and
the companionship of Krenn, the
swarthy-skinned young architect,
who is now remodeling her Lake
Forest estate. . !
The two arc constantly .seen to
gether, riding, driving, strolling
over the grounds of the Lake For
est estate and attending lectures
and concerts. Rumors linking their
names in romance are neither con
firmed nor denied by Mrs. McCor-
mi(lr nr Krpnn
Krenn. who is just 28, admitted
when interviewed that he and Mrs.
McCormick, have many common in
terests and enjoy each other's so
ciety hugely, but merely smiles
enigmatically when marriage la
suggested. Mrs. McCormick, when
accosted by representatives of the
press, grimly announced she has
nothing whatever to say on any sub
ject and quickly passes on.

WASHINGTON. D. C Aug. 20.
Secretary Hughes, in a letter made
public tonight' by the republican
national committee, expresses the
conviction after a review of the
Newberry case "that Senator New
berry was wrongly and most un
The- secretary, writing to the Rev.
Hugh B. McCaulley . of Paterson,
N. J., in response to an inquiry as
to the "facts" in the Newberry case,
gives in detail the findings of the
courts, especially the supreme court,
which set aside the -conviction of
Mr. Newberry, and then concludes:
"Despite the long period of prepa
ration, the rigid investigation, the
careful choosing of their ground,
the long drawn out trial, the at
tempt in every possible way to be
smirch, and the zeal, ability and
even bitterness of his pursuers,
their endeavor to establish a viola
tion of law on the part of Senator
New-berry completely failed, and ac
cordingly Sm.-.tor Newberry stood
as a senator duly elected by the
peopie of the state of Michigan and
entitled to his seat in the senate of
the United 'States."
Mr. Hughes expresses the belie'
that "there seems to be a general
misconception of the nature of the
litigation and its result, and Senator
Newberry has suffered in conse
quence of a most serious injustice.
"The conviction of Senator New
berry," he continued, "was obtained
under a statute held by the ma
jority of the supreme court to be in
valid; rested upon a ground which
did not involve any finding by the
jury of moral turpitude; and was
affected only by a most serious mis
construction of the statute which
exposed him to conviction regardless
of any moral offense upon his part
and no matter how high-minded he
might have been in his conduct in
the campaign." j
The Secretary, who as counsel for
Mr. Newberry and his associates,
participated in arguments in the
case before the supreme court, fur
ther declares, in his letter that "it
should be borne in mind that Sen
ator Newberry's conviction in the
lower court wag not based on any
charge of fraud, corruption or of
the use of money for any illegal
purposes or of any act involving
moral turpitude." ' -
Basis Declared Lacking.
Mr. Hughes then explains that
the conviction of Mr. Newberry was
based solely on the charge that there
had been an expenditure in his campaign-
and election of more than
$3750, the limit fixed by the state
of Michigan, and that the federal
corrupt practices act made it un
lawful for a candidate to spend in
excess of the limit fixed by state
"Senator Newberry could not have
been convicted," Mr. Hughes adds.
"even upon this charge without
what I always regarded, and so
stated in my argument to the su
preme court, as an extraordinary
misapplication of the statute upon
which the charge was based."
Discussing the decision of the su
preme court at length Mr. Hughes
points out to his correspondent that
the majority opinion of the court
held that the federal statute was un-
consitutional and therefore the con
viction should be set aside and that
the other four justices, while not
concurring on the question of con
stitutionality, joined in reversing
the judgment of conviction "because
the statute had been seriously mis
construed by the trial court."
