CHOOSK OWN THEORY
Beautiful" Clara Smith, stenographer
to the dead millionaire, is still missing.
Startling rumors have been current in j
i Ardmore today about this mysterious
woman who is charged by the Carter
rnunty attorney . with flrlrfg - the, shot
, that resulted in the politician's death,
, . The public, always eager to gossip
v nbout the mighty, accepts with Implicit
. faith the story that Hamon fell before
1 the woman's automatic in a heated quar
' rel In the oil magnate's room in an Ard
more hotel. With this class the belief
is prevalent that Frank L. Ketch, busi
1 ness manager of the Hamon interests,
has the woman secreted in some place
where she is safe from the county offi
cers. Qn the other hand, the substantial
business men of the town profess to
believe that Hamon died as the result
"of an accident. Their theory is that
the fur coated, be-dlamond favorite of
the dead oil king has been safely hidden
by the county attorney.
r-MABRIED FOR NAME
, Hamon made no secret of -his affec
tion for Clara Smith. It Is understood
that he faced the necessity for parting
with her after a great struggle in which
the advice of his friends prevailed.
.'Hamon was ambitious. His meteoric
career in Oklahoma politics led him to
believe that he might ascend to national
eminence. His name was once before
the Chicago convention . for the nomina
tion of the presidency.
The Smith woman has known Hamon
since she was ' 17 years old. She first
nice, si 1 til lit ikH ivii nuns buv t h sb vtvia
in a drygoods store. She went to Ard
more later as bis stenographer. A few
years ago she married a nephew of
Hamon's, as she is said to have put it,
:"to get the, name of Hamon!" She
never lived with young Hamon. ' It Is
rumored that a $50,000 settlement was
made with the woman . by Hamon at
the time of her marriage' to his nephew.
BET OS HE8tJlT';f: " ,
Charges have been made that the in-
formation filed by Russell Brown, county
1 attorney of Carter' county, are the out-
v growth of political enmity. Hamon's
manager, Frank L. . Ketch, has even
charged that the statutory charge was
a political frame-up. The fact remains,
' however, that the influential Democrats
-of -Carter county are assisting in the
work of hushing the rumors of scandal
surrounding Hamon's death.
Betting is : even today that Russell
Brown will not press the charge of as
sault with intent to kill, made against
the woman. It is not generally believed
that the charge will ever be changed
to manslaughter or-murder. The adult
, ery charge ; brought Jointly against
Hamon and the woman, it is thought,
will not be pressed against Clara Smith.
Immediately after Hamon's death the
leading business men of Ardmore met
in secret conference and decided to ap--"
ply pressure to the end that the reports
. current about Hamon-shall be forgotten,
I No official statemen was made by the
men who were in , the conference. . It
is significant that Southern Oklahoma
' newspapers owned by Hamon's friends
never carried more than a statement of

-POLICEMAN AND BOY KTT.Tp
By Percy Sart
(Flitted Ktn Staff r7--A
London, Nov. 29. Sinn Fein carried'
the Irish war into the industrial heart
of England with an outbreak of arson
in Liverpool Sunday morning. Twelve
warehouses stocked with', cotton and
other materials, and a number of lum
ber yards, were set on fire slmultane-
ously. A policeman was shot dead as
he tried to arrest a man running from
one of the burning buildings, and a
boy who had the misfortune to observe
the firebugs on one job was another
At one time there were IS bad fires
going' in the warehouses and lumber
. yards. Including six in the Bootle sec
, tion alone. All the Liverpool, fire en
gines, as well as those from the subur
- ban stations, were out simultaneously .
and other apparatus was summoned
from neighboring town. . .
LUMBER TABD BCBKS
No estimate of the damage can yet be
attempted, but It will certainly amount
to many thousands of pounds. Many
; fires were stiU burning despite the best
' effort of the entire fire and police de
partments, at J o'clock Sunday after- J
noon. . Several score of fire bugs are be
lieved to have worked on the "Jobs in
parties of varying numbers. "v
When the police rrfshed to the fires
In the north end they were fired upon
by pickets stationed to stave off Inter
ference. None was hit, however.
Bootle had a total of 12 fire alarms
during the arson orgy. Several huge
six-story warehouses, crammed with raw
materials Just unloaded from ships or
with manufactured goods about to be
shipped, were burned' out.
PIOT WAS KJTOWJT
At one time there were three 'great
fires going in Regent street, including
one lumber yard containing thousands
of feet of timber badly needed for hous
ing construction. In Sandsfield lane a
similar lumber yard went up in flames
and - two immense cotton warehouses
were badly damaged. . . , r
The outbreak took place according te
the plan attributed to the Irish repub
lican army and revealed to the United
News on Thursday by the Irish ofice.
As these dispatches announced at the
time the plan favored Sunday morning
as the best time to attack Liverpool and
Manchester with the torch and explosive.
While Liverpool was being threatened
with destruction and the entire forces of
the great seaport city were making a
-bewildered fight against attacks in
many 'quarters, precautions went for
ward In London to prevent the assassin
ation : of Lloyd George and ' other high
officers of .the government,
Heavy' police guards were stationed
throughout the Whitehall and, West
minster districts, housing respectively
the many government departments and
parliament. Saint James park, including
a large-p4ra.de ground, in the rear of the
prime minister's residences the admiralty
and the foreign office was turned Into
a mobilization field for the special po
lice and a concentration of these officers
were kept there all day ready to be
shifted to any point of attack oh a sec
ond's notice. , -
The government Is "still reticent re
garding the details of the plot, but the
plan of destruction is revealed as the
most elaborate in the history of the Irish
troubles, with hundreds of men impli
cated. In Manchester and Liverpool precau
tions had been taken as well.
DOORS BSOKEK BOWKT
There are thousands of Irish and
others of known Sinn Feiners feelings
In both of these great seaports and man
ufacturing centers and the government
evidently, had reason to fear trouble
from some of them. . As the original plot
was said to have purposed the dynamit
ing of lqpks and other Important public
works In both cities, that part at least
of the reign of it has been thwarted.
And in the absence of trouble in White
hall it was believed that the presence
of the guards had scared off dynamiters
or assassins if any had actually planned
to make their attack today.
Five; arrests were made in Liverpool
Hundreds of empty gasoline cans were
found near the scenes of the fires. En
trance to the warehouses was gained by
the forcing of locks or by cutting them
out of th doors.
The police reported that a total of 18
fires had been started between 9 and
10 o'clock Sunday morning. They were
in widely separated neighborhoods, on
the north and south Bides of the city,
some being six miles apart. The police
stated that there must have been a
number of well trainee and organized
gangs of firebugs, well acquainted with
the interiors of th& big warehouse build
ings which were the largest iu the port
It was reported in London that . the
government had discovered an elaborate
plan for the destruction of government
property and the assassination of Lloyd
George , and Other government officials.
This plan was to have been carried Into
execution on Monday, it was said, -and
the names of several of the plotters, are
understood to.be known, to the admin
istration. The government is taking a
very serious view of the plots evidenced
by th effort expended to organise for
resistance in Whitehall.
REPRESSION TO CONTINUE
There was another report that Sinn
Fein , assassins planned to dash through
Whitehall in automobiles eri Sunday, toss
bombs into , Downing street where the
premier lives, and speed away. It was.
in respect for this plan that the high
barricade was erected across the mouth
of Downing street
The assassin who shot the policeman
at the scene of one of the Liverpool fires
was reported to have been .arrested later.
Further, arrests "were promised by the
The extension of terrorism from Ire
land into the heart of England sent a
shudder over the land, lest this be the
beginnlng'of a reign of terror even worse
than- that of the Fenian outbreaks, 25
years ago; but it is plain that attacks
of this nature will only stiffen the gov
ernment's resolve to stamp out Sinn Fein
to the very last sparks. - . "
JOHN BULL SHOCKED , '
The authorities claim to regard the
terrorism of the last two Sundays as the
expiring struggle of a beaten adversary.
They believe Sinn Fein did not turn Its
attention to England until it -became too
hard pressed by the soldiers and the
black aijd tans in Ireland.
Observers Deneve ine ursi reaction oi
the English people to the Liverpool fires
will be a feeling of horror and resent
ment whicji will line up the nation solidly
behind the government, as reports or
the"" fire circulated throughout liOndon
Sunday ordinary Londoners were say
ing, "This is .war the Irish war," and
the strife of two successive Sundays
seemed to have shocked the Englishman
out of his apathy, solidifying sentiment
against Sinn Fein.

A letter received; here today by Mrs.
Reardon, 3328 Thirteenth street, from
her mother, the 'widow of an Irish ma
gistrate, and a Unionist of Dublin, gives
an intimate picture of the last hours of
the young patriot. The letter quotes one
prominent in public affairs in Dublin
as furnishing the facts. It was mailed
on November 12.
"Kevin Barry was banged this week
for attacking a lot of fully armed sol
diers and taking their rifles." says the
letter. "The day before his death a con

Do you think he was wise In refus

Lee smiled and shrugged. "I am not

the case," he admitted, "but offhand I
should say he was a bit of a fool."
"Would you accept a million dollars

Lee laughed. "I am egotist enough to

and still remain a good Socialist," he
said. "I should certainly accept the

such a sum, I might cease to be a So

"I think it is pathetic," he answered.
Any futile sacrifice is pathetic and
Garland's sacrifice la futile. It changes
nothing; it benefits no one. It is futile

So even the Socialists don't love a
man who refuses a million. Garland
reminds one of the Irish Socialist who
was explaining his theory to a friend.
'Do you mean to Bay that if you had
92,000,000 you'd diwy up and give me

'Sure," said the Irishman.
'And if you had two feoats, you'd

after sitting as a committeeman on an
Industrial board at Uie iamoein, Eng
land, conference last summer.
He reports finding the English gov
ernment more in sympathy with labor
movements than the American govern
ment and for that reason believes dan
ger from labor agitation is not so great
in England as in wis country.

to accept his new position. He served
