Committee of "Americans Who

',. Washington, Nov. 27. The com
tmlttee of five Americans who plan
to investigate conditions in Ireland
will have no difficulty about their
passports. The British government
has determined to take no official
cognizance 4of the matter and the
. 0., British embassy 'here is treating the
s request , for1 the approval of pass
ports in much the same way as it
would treat the request of any Amer
Similarly the department of state will
issue passports to' the committee in 'the
game routine way that passports are
Biven to any Americans who want to go
to Great Britain' on pleasure or busi
ness. There has been some, talk In the
last few days that the department of
state might decline to Issue passports
. on the ground that the visit of the com
mission might be regarded as an inter
fcrence In the politics of another coun
try but the commission, on the other
hand, is an entirely private affair, and
its request for passports does not differ
from that of five newspaper men or any
other, group of Individuals who want' to
write about conditions in another coun
try. - - ' '
The department of justice will not be
responsible Xr the reports or utterances
of the committee any more than it is for
the writings of American correspondents
residing in Ireland or anywhere else in
Kurope. ' Y ' " '
Of course; it was entirely within the
right of the British government to re
. fuse approval to the passports of the
commission. Frequently, during r the
war. the United States would issue
passports but the French or British gov-
ernments would refuse to' epprove . them

WOMEN PAY BIG
Single Women Carry Largest Bur
den and Most of Them
Are Wage Earners.
Washington, Nov. 27. (I. N. S.)
Women's part in carrying the na
tion's tax load, as indicated by reve
nue figures issued today, ; reveals
that they are paying into .the treas
ury on a basis of net Incomes to
talling S1.064, 000,009.
This amount, according to,.' idetaiied
figures of 191$ returns, applies only to
sjngle women, who - are .. supporting
themselves ior relatives, from their own
earnings.' - - '".
The indicated 'earnings of ' women
are still further increased if returns
filed by wives, entirely apart from Itus
bands' returns, are considered. Wives
are shown to have nt incomes amount
ing to one-third of a billion dollars.
Thus : women pay into, the treasury
on a basts of about one-tenth of the
total revenues collected, although they
constitute only about one-eighth of the
,5.000.000 who made returns in ,191. Of
ficials stated women taxpayers include
largely wage earners, although the lists
include women of wealth.

Police attached no significance to the
fact that Lamb met his death from a

died from effects of a similar wound.
A bullet had drilled Lamb through the
heart and he apparently died without a
struggle. According to police, the spot

SUICIDE THEORY SCOUTED
Investigation late today had not yet
determined whether. Lamb had been
lured to the spot and slain, or his body
carried to the tracks for disposal after
he had been murdvred somewhere else.
The suicide theory was not given much
thought by officials, as no revolver was
found near the1 Bbdy.
Arrangements meanwhile were con-,
eluded, for the funeral of Hamon on
Monday afternoon. Scores of prominent
Republicans, including' Governor Frank
O. Ijowden of Illinois, will attend.
, His funeral service Monday will prob
ably surpass any similar ceremony in
Thousands of visitors and friends of
the dead man are expected to crowd
the little town of Ardmore to pay their
final respects to the oil magnate.

charged with shooting Hamon, was be
