Both Houses of Parliament Closed
. to Visitors for First Time;
Wild Rumors of Plots Bestir
High Government Officials.
By fcarle C. Reeves -London,
Nov.; 27. (I. N. S.) For
the first time in living memory, both
houses of parliament were today or
dered closed to all visitors, and Im
mediately' afterwards the Irish office-issued
the official explanation
that this remarkable tep as welt as
other ; extraordinary precautions
were "due to definite information"
that there is a plot against the life
.of a "high official." -
According to the Central News, many
high British officials during the past
week have received threatening letters
. and anonymous warnings, apparently
from persons desiring to save these offi
cials. . :
Sensational discoveries are . said to
have been made during the last few days
concerning alleged Sinn Fein plots in
London. Documentary proof K reported
to be in the government's hands reveal;
ing a detailed plan for wholesale bomb
explosions, including a scheme for motor
transportation for the bomb plotters to
and from, various parts of London.
The historic gray, building at No. 10
Downing street, headquarters of the
government and official residence of
Premier Lloyd George, is thoroughly
barricaded. A special force of guards
heavily armed, stands in front and both
ends of Whitehall are being patrolled
by equally heavy guards. 1
Members of the cabinet, it Is under
stood, did not request the barricading of
- the government headquarters, but the
home office, which is responsible for- the
safety of the' ministers, acted on its own
Secretary Hamar Greenwood, accord

SUIT IS ATTACKED
Minden. Nev.. Nov. 27. (U. P.)
Mary Pickford, the motion picture
star, through her lawyers here, to
day made an effort to quash, the suit
brought by the state of Nevada to
annul her divorce from Owen Moore.
Since obtaining a divorce from Moore,
Miss Pickford has married Douglas
Fairbanks. The state's suit to annul
the decree was filed on ( the ground
that Miss Pickford falsely represented
that she intended to make Nevada her
home when she instituted her action in
this state's courts."
Gavin McNabb of San Francisco and
rW. A. McCarren of Reno were the law
vers representing Mary Pickford here
today. ;They were ready to argue in
support- of Jier motion that the state's
suit to annul be quashed. They con
tended the superior court had no juris
diction In the case and that the stats
is not a proper plaintiff in such a
Attorney General W. B. Fowler ap
peared personally for the state.
There were no famous film stars
present. It was understood, however.
that both Miss' Pickford and Douglas
Fairbanks were keeping In close touch
with the proceedings by telegraph and
telephone. - .
It looks as if the arguments .would
be made before a "standing room only"
crowd. They attracted almost as much
attention as the appearance of Mary
herself in- the little town of Minden.
:A large . number : of ranchers came to
town" last night with their wives in
order to be present
; If" the court refuses to quash the
state's proceedings, the next step will
be trial of the suit to annul the di
