LONDON, Oct. 24; (By the
Associated Press) The Ilrst real
crisis in the Irish conference,
caused by Eamonn De Valera'i in.

Benedict last week, is not healed,
but there are hopes, If not pros,

; Long Conference Held
Representatives of the British
government and Dail Elreann con
ferred nearly four hours" today
and this question was the only
one before the conference which
adjourned until 4 p. m. tomorrow.
The g orernmentja understood to
have placed before the Sinn Fein
delegates Its ultimatum, or decla
ration, that Great Britain will;
deal yith Sinn .Fein (Ireland only
as a part of the British empire and
not with representatives -of the
Sinn Fein as : plenipotentiaries of
an Independent republic. ,
v. roller Mado Clear . ; . .
Premier Lloyd George made the.
government's policy clear to the
house of commons. . He said Mr.
De Valera'a message was a "grave
challenge" that the government's
position on that question ( mean
ing Independence) had been made
clear and that the conference
could not proceed on any other
'basis . -.: v .
. The business of today's confer
ence was described as an attempt
; to agree on a formula which
would carry the conference . over

for prices even to settle. He de
clared that one New York bank
had loaned $130,000,000 and
they didn't know it wah specu
lative investments," but that they
could not trust the farmer, for
fear he might speculate on his
crops."
Oregon Ca-ne Cited
The speaker told of a case oc
curring In Oregon, where local
farmers decided to pool their
vetch seed for 4 cents a pound.
Seed dealers got together and im
ported vetch from Russia for 2.6
cents a pound; then they shipped
in alfalfa and other seed and
thought it a pretty Rood bnsinetui
to break down the growers' price
scneauie.
"You ought to know where vou
are buying your stuff, and see if
it has any bearing on your own
ana your neighbor's prosperity,
he said.
The speaker told of speculators
now ouying up alfalfa hay at
is.&u a ton down in the Klamath
country, and buying cattle at half
their value, because under the
reaeral reserve control of fin
ances the farmers must sell.
we cant trust the country
bankers to loan the federal
funds," the reserve officers have
said, according to the speaker
"They are too humane with their
customers who need help.r
ine country and all other
banks outside of the great fed
eration, he says, are as much the
victims of the system as are the
farmers themselves. They are
powerless to help themselves or
their constituents.

"We have only about 37.5 per

have to get enough to make a
majority, to make any plan op

no one, it preaches no gospel of
destruction or ovethrow merely
the gospel of the American home
and general prosperity!" -
The bureau is to be organized

on a comprehensive, basis. It

Two-Phase Policy Outlined
The aereve point of view that
It was logical to' divide business
into at least two phases, Hhe pro

finance the farmer to produce a

forced him to sell immediately on

unsound. This distinction, he
said, was made so that the spe

money to "merchandise" the crop.

LOS ANGELES, Cal.. Oct. 24
I Trial of -Arthur Burch on the
charge of murder of J. Belton
Kennedy was set for November 1
in the superior court here today.
District attorney Thomas Leel
Woolwine made no objection to a
motion for separate trials of Mrs.
Madalynne Obenchain and Arthur
Burch, aftd elected to proceed
first with the trial of Burch.
Woolwine offered "Vigorous
and unqualified" objection to the
court granting privilege to Char
les Erbenstoin of Chicago, of ap
pearing as attorney for Mrs. Oben
chain. Retcntionn Challenged
"Ie believe him to be a person
wholly unfit to practice law at
tills bar." Woolwine declared.
A telegram from Maclay Hoyne,
former state's attorney of Cook
county, Illinois, was read by Mr.
Woolwine as an answer to a
query by Woolwine concerning
Hoyne's complaining of Erbstein.
Hoyne's telegram, as read into
the court record, was as follows:
"A witty, unconscionable crook.
A fixer and suborner of neriurv
indicted twice and acquitted both
times. A reckless gambler. Will
write you fully."
Judpe Reeve, without comment
referred District Attorney Wool
wine's objection against Erb
stein's admission to practice in
California to the Los Angeles Bar
association.
Erbstein Replies
Erbstein was heard by the
court in answer to the charges.
Voicing a protest that these
charges were made after he had
come from Chicago, he referred
to the charge of "trickster," and
said that he believed this charge
might be applied to the prosecu
tor. "Hoyne is my bitterest enemy,"
he said. "If I were not a sick
man I would take care of Mr.
Woolwine."
Later, m derense against the
charges. Erbstein declared they
were entirely unexpected.
