THE SUNDAY OREGONIAX, PORTLAND, JUNE 25, 1922
Lloyd George Is Likely to
Face New Crisis.
SCAPEGOAT IS SOUGHT
Widow Said to Have Made Protest
Against Presence of Cabinet
at Husband's Funeral.
LONDON, June 24. (By the Asso
ciated Press.) The probable effect
of the assassination of Field Mar
shal "Wilson on the political eitua
tlon attracts attention today, and
all the newspapers speculate as to
the position of the British govern
ment in view of the outbursts of an
ger in parliament at the withdrawal
of protection from prominent men.
The intense indignation over the
murder is mingled with widespread
feeling that it should have been pre
vented, and consequently a scape
goat is being sought. Home Secre
tary Shortt, as responsible head of
the police, has been singled out par
ticularly as a necessary victim, and
his removal is demanded.
Monday's session of the house of
commons may see the defection of a
large number of the coalition union
ists who have hitherto supported the
government's Irish policy, but who
are now more than ever inclined to
attach themselves to the "die
Party Is Threatened.
These conservative waverers are
represented as taking the attitude
that they supported the Anglo-Irish
treaty because the government as
sured them it would nettle the Irish
question and peace would follow.
Peace has not followed, they say,
and the government must take the
consequences. Nothing has occurred
since the last general election to
weaken the party allegiance so dan
gerously. Whether this resentment will
crystallize during the week end into
a solid opposition menacing the ex
istence of the government, or
whether a calmer view will prevail
by Monday will only be seen when
the commons reconvenes. Many po
litical writers declare the cabinet is
seriously perturbed at the outlook
and that the government whips are
anxiously reckoning the strength of
the support they may expect should
the issue come to a head.
Lndy Wilson Angry.
The Morning Post printed a state
ment from an unnamed correspond
ent that Lady Wilson had sent a
message to the cabinet to the effect
that the presence of any cabinet
minister at her husband's funeral
would be distasteful to her. The
message caused much consternation
and the newspaper said a letter was
written to Lady Wilson asking her
to reconsider her decision, which at
first ehe declined to do.
The war office then informed the
field marshal's widow, according to
the Post, that the absence of cabinet
members from a military public fu
neral would be regarded as disre
spectful to the king. Thereupon she
yielded and it was arranged for the
ministers to attend.
The Post's correspondent added
that when J. Austen Chamberlain,
government leader in the house of
commons, called at the Wilson resi
dence on the night of the field mar
shal's assassination to express his
sympathy he was received by Lady
Wilson's niece. Upon seeing him fihe
exclaimed: "You are the last man
who should be in this house today."
She then left the room and Mr.
Chamberlain departed without ac
complishing his mission.

ELECTION HELD INVALID
Old School Board Likely to Hold
Office Until Next Year.
KLAMATH FALLS, Or., June 24.
(Special.) That election boards In
the first county Bchool election un
der the county unit plan had com
mitted numerous irregularities was
the contention of the temporary
board appointed by the county
court in May to inaugurate the new
system and which today refused to
canvass the election results.
Chairman Bradbury declared that
ballots had been destroyed in some
instances and only the tally sheets
returned and that candidates for
directors sat on election boards.
He said that while a mandamus
proceeding to compel a count was a
possibility, he did not think it
probable and in the event the
board's decision is unchallenged the
appointed board will hold office un
til next year.

tenor voice carried well arid he re

of the chorus as one of the features
at succeeding fetes. The organiza
