Freedom for Ireland Resolution
freclpltates Clash, and Many
Senators Mix In Verbal Melee.
WASITOCGTON. Oct. 18. Treaty de
bate In the senate shifted back to the
Irish question today( Senator Walsh,
democrat, Montana, starting a sharp
discussion on the subject by calling
up his resolution to declare that the
United States should bring the ques
tion of Irish freedom before the
league of nations as soon as it' be
comes a member.
Senator Walsh declared the United
States would be responsible to the
overwhelming sentiment of the Amer
ican people if it declared In the
league for Irish independence.
Senator Penrose, republican, Penn
sylvania, asked whether the United
States could not do more for Ireland
if it had six votes, like the British
empire. In the league assembly, and
Senator Walsh replied in the nega
tive, declaring if action were taken
the decision must be unanimous. He
also denied a suggestion by Senator
Lenroot, republican, Wisconsin, that
to present such a plea to the league
would be in violation of Great Brit
ain's territorial integrity as guaran
teed by article 10.
Jurisdiction Point Raised.
Serator Lenroot also argued that
If the Irish question could come with
in the league's jurisdiction, then the
league could consider also the ques
tion of immigration, tariff and other
matters regarded as purely internal.
Senator Walsh assured the senate
that his resolution was offered in no
spirit of hostility, either to Great
Britain or Ireland, but in the hope
that it might aid in a solution of
their difficulties.
Senator Poindexter, republican,
Washington, opposing the resolution,
said it illustrated bow the league
wjuld operate.
"Tho resolution Is an external at
tack on the territorial integrity of
Great Britain." said he, "and the next
thing would )e action by the league
against the United States, with the
bringing of economic pressure, be
cause of the action of the senate in
attacking British territorial integ
rity." Declaring Great Britain would have
six votes in the league to America's
one, Senator Poindexter said:
Service Held Questionable.
"If the Intention of the senator Is
to create the impression among Irish
voters that he is doing them a service.
or Ireland a service, I do not think he
will deceive them."
Senator Walsh replied that his only
purpose wa sto help dispel Irritation
between Great Britain and Ireland.
Senator Penrose said the Walsh
resolution "was the crowning, most

referring to the latter's advocacy of
an arms embargo and expressions of
sympathy for Germany prior to Amer
ica s entrance into the war.
"Does the senator question that
supported the army neutrality bill to
the limit of my ability?" asked Sena
tor Hitchcock.
"I certainly do," replied the Wash
ington senator. "I do not see how the
senator could support that measure
to the limit of his ability while he
was urging passage of an arms em

sympathy for Germany.
Pro-Germanism Charged.
"If the senator from Nebraska had
bad his way in this war, it would
have been equivalent to leading into
the field an army of several hun

no more service to Germany than

Senator Poindexter quoted numer
ous statements in the senate by Mr.
-Hitchcock before the declaration of
war expressing himself as neutral
and as hoping that neither side would
crush the other.
"He thought it was highly honorable
in 1915 to abandon France and Great
Britain," continued the Washington
senator, "but ho says now it would
be poltroonery to abandon them.
Senator Poindexter also quoted a
declaration by Senator Hitchcock on
March 4, 1917, while the armed neu
trality bill was pending, expressing
"sympathy for the German people."
The Washington senator added that
Senator Hitchcock also had praised
the German government and had "con
doned German atrocities."
Senator Hitchcock made & brief re

Effort to Have Improvements on
Sauvles' Island Is Subject of
Long-Drawn-Oat Litigation.
MARSHFTELD. Or.. Oct. 18. (Spe
cial.) Harold Howell, the 14-year-old
Bandon youth who was held In the
county Jail several weeks as a sus
pect in connection with the killing of
Lillian Leuthold, of Bandon, with a
25-caliber rifle, was indicted last
night by the Coos county grand jury.
The jury had entirely new testi
mony presented at the last moment
of the Investigation. The Indictment
is for second degree murder, since
first degree murder is punishable by
death and the laws of the state do not
permit capital punishment.
Youth Doe Not Weaken.
Young Howell has been Incarcerated
for several weeks, and during that
time has never shown any sign of
weakening or confessing to the mur
der. The authorities at the time of
the preliminary hearing before County
Judge Wade believed that one piece
of evidence was almost conclu
sive when the dead girl's brother.
John Leuthold, presented two cart
ridge shells he found in the sandy
road near the scene of the murder.
A Coquille gunsmith, who examined
the bullet found in the girl's head,
said the gun found after the killing
at the Howell home would have
caused the same marks as were
gouged in the bullet.
Indictment Not Expected.
Of late, owing to the Inability to
nhtaln anvthlnir in the wav of CulltV
sign from Harold Howell, there had Saving of 600
been a belief that the grand Jury
would not indict him. The boy went
through several gruelling conferences
with detectives, but steadfastly held
to his claim of innocence and nothing
has shaken his first statement, that
he was not near the place where the
girl was killed on the day of the
murder, although it was maintained
by officials that he could have passed
that way in returning home that day
from a f riend s.
The killing occurred on a Sunday
afternoon in a lonely place in a wood
at the eastern extremity of the city
of Bandon. The victim bad visited
girl friend and when she did not re
turn home that night her parents
thought she had remained at her
friend's home, as she sometimes did.
Not returning the next morning, the
father went out In search of her and
being Informed by the Jennings fam
ily that she had departed the pre
vious evening, searched the trail
leading to the main road and found
the body hidden away behind a log.
Father Finds Trail.
The conclusion the father reached
was that the body had either been
hurriedly hidden by & man or else
dragged by a boy. A trail was made
from the trail to the log. the body
having been dragged. It was there
fore quite evident somebody who
could not carry the body had disposed
of it. There were later pieces of evi
dence said to have been produced, fol
lowing the hearing In Judge Wade's
court, but they have never been veri
fied. It was said that Harold Howell's
clothing which he wore on the day
of the tragedy could not be found at
the home and this report gave rise to
the theory that It had been blood
stained. Mrs. Leuthold, . the girl's mother,
was prostrated at the time and but
recently recovered sufficiently to be
about. John Leuthold. her brother.

The trial has not been set. but
probably will commence next week

boy, says they will enter a plea of
not guilty when the trial is called.

After 60 years' fight, marked by
seven distinct court actions, J. L.
Reeder of Sauvles Island has succeed
ed In retaining establishment of road
No. 911, a Jury In the court of Cir
cuit Judge Belt yesterday awarding
damages totaling J5.277.70 for land
Reeder began his fight for a county
road on his land 60 years ago In an
effort to compel the eounty to con
struct a bridge across a slough. He
failed in numerous court actions and
finally constructed his own bridge.
Through the ravages of time, that
bridge has fallen into decay, and the
campaign ' Just waged in the circuit
court has as its object the building of
a new bridge across that, slough.
The road has been contested by
other property holders on Sauvles'
Island who have held that it would
benefit only Reeder and cost . them
much money. Th'ere is a road there
now, but to make it of the proportions
of a county road, condemnation pro
ceedings were necessary.
The case was in the local courts last
spring and a Jury returned a verdict
to the effect that the opponents of
the road should not be reimbursed for
any alleged damages, except that the
county should be compelled to build
a fence along their property, border
ing the road. Though the decision
appeared equitable to the Jury, it was
not legal, and its peculiar provision
resulted in the granting of a new
trial, which ended yesterday.
George C. Shepherd was attorney
for Reeder in the action. The district
attorney's office was represented by
Samuel H. Pierce.

years," says Mrs. Roy Morrison of No.
4628 South Park avenue, Tacoma,
Wash. Many medicines were pre
scribed for me but they didn't seem
to get at the cause of my trouble
and I gradually lost ambition. I did
not want to do anything but sit still
all day long. I lost flesh steadily
and worried myself Into nervous at
tacks. My complexion was sallow
and I did not care to eat. Then I
began to have headaches which be
came so severe at times that it
seemed as though my head would
split. My relatives became very
much worried over my condition.
"An uncle who had taken Dr. Wil
liams' Pink Pills with benefit advised
mv mother to get me to try the rem-
,Hv. I procured a box and hadn't
taken half the contents before I could
see that the pills werj helping me.
As I continued the treatment the tired
feeling disappeared and I found nei
interest in my work. Gradually my
appetite Improved and It wasn't long
before I regained strength and flesh.
The headaches disappeared and my
cnmnlexton is healthy. I shall al-
othvh sav a good word for Dr. Wil
