Mr. Coolldge described the part

ed the results "by accepting groat
responsibilities and making great
sacrifices." (
"If we are to maintain the in

"Each ; year the birthday of
George Washington' gains wider
acceptance as 'being" of more' na
tional significance," Mr. CooIIdge
said. "In far-off lands people are
observing this day;' by taking
thought of the qualities that gave
Washington'., his foremost ' placo
among the truly great. They are
drawn to this man by ' his . calm
j and clear judgment, by his abound
ing courage and by his unselfish
devotion. Beyond that which' was
ever accorded to ally otner mbrtal,
he holds rank as It soldier, states
man and a patriot. Others may
have excelled him in some of these
qualities, but no one ever excelled
him" In this three-fold greatness.
"Yet, Washington,- the v man,
incenis to stand above them all.
We can best' estimate him
by not Identifying him with some
high places but by thinking of him
ins one of ourselves. When all

enough to sky he was a" great man.
He had a supreme" endowment of

No one can think of America
without thinking of Washington
when we look back over the course
of history before his day, it seebis
as though It had all been a prep
aration for him and his time.
When we consider events ' since
then we can see a steady, growth
and? development of the ideals
"which he represented as the insti
tutions which he foundedi world
wide in extent. The principles
which he fought to establish have
become axioms of civilliatlon. 5 It
might also be said that the prog
ress which peopled have made ha
aneasured by the degree with which
they have accepted the great poli
cies which he represented. ; j
'It Is not possible: to compress
a great life into sinfcle sentence.

' EVERETT, Wash., Feb. 22. The mystery of the death
of Mrs. Laura Mummey, 75, by shotgun wound or fire; the
previous wounding of her husband, Jbshua Mummey,, 75, a

granddaughter of Mrs. Mummey, is alleged by Sheriff James
McCulloch here to have made a confession.
The narrative divulged both verbally and in writing, was
to the effect that brooding over wrongs that he believed the

gasoline he had taken from Seattle.
This gasoline he was related to
have thrown, burning, into the
house before seizing a shotgun and

covered, had found that Austin
Earl, a son of A. W. Earl, had
seen Ryberg four miles south of

Stained Clothing Found
In Ryberg's room In Seattle the
sheriff found, he reported, a stain
ed shirt and underclothing freshly
washed. Ryberg offered a rusty
pan used in washing garments as
an explanation of the stains. But
the sheriff said that the stains
were in spots and not all over the
clothing. These things, the sher

that bones found in the basement
of the. burned home were those of
Mrs. 'Mummey. A statement given
out by the sheriff as signed by Ry
berg, read: , i
"I went to A. W. Earl's house at

Another Amendment Wedded
on Revenue Bill By House
Democrat - Republican -Insurgent
Both' Changes Draw Fire
From Republicans One
Given Small Majority ,
WASHINGTON, Feb. 22.- The
house tlemocratic-reimblkan in
surgent coalition wedged another
amendment into the revenue , bill
today, niaking tax returns subject
to inspection by certain congress
ional committees.
This amendment and another
adopted by a one-vote margin
opening corporation tax returns to
inspection of state officials regard
less of whether the state imposes
an income tax as the law now re
quires, developed the major con
troversial issues of the day. Both
amendments drew fire from the
republicans. Representative Mills
New York, charged that "this
piecemeal destruction of the rev
enue bill is not only leading to
complete distortion of the meas
ure but to destruction of the in
come tax law itself." He asserted
that the measure was being inadw
an instrument of politics adding
that "instead of bringing relief to
the tax payers it Is going to harass
Relief Claimed
Representative wlngo, demo
crat, Arkansas, in reply denied
that amendments thus far adopt
ed had done more than bring re
lief to a greater numbr of tax pay
ers, audlcclaied be would rathe
be charged with political motives
than personal iulerest in framiug
a revenue bill."
The republican stand served to
defeat an amendment offered by
Representative Moore, democrat,
Virginia, which would have open
ed personal as well as corporation
returns to state officers. It was4
lost 122 to 74.
Additional charges in the meas
ures 'were" tentatively agreed upon
at a meeting of some members of
both parties of the ways and means
committee. ThcBe would increase
the estate or inheritance tax and
impose a' gifjf tax. What rates
will bo . proposed was not deter
mined although the schedule ad
vanced recently by Representative
Ramseyer, Republican, Iowa, to
make the maximum rate on the
estate tax 40 per cent applying to
the amount by -which the net es
tate of a decedent exceeds $10,
000,000 was favored by a number
of those who conferred.
Representative Longworth, the
republican leader, who yesterday
advanced a new compromise on
the income rate schedules as a
substitute for the democratic rates
already voted into the bill declar
ed tonight he expected eight or
nine of the 17 republicans who
supported the democratic plan to
vote for the substitute if an op
portunity is afforded when the bill
is up for a final vote. The repub

"This is not the time," he said,
in a formal statement, "to yield

Talks With McLean
and Fall
No Formal Subpoena for Ap.
pearapce Is Issued Will
Testify Monday
Bascoiu Sleinp, secretary to Presi
dent CooliclRe, will be called as'a
witness in the oir inquiry, proba
bly next Monday.
This was made known today by
Senator Walsh, democrat, Mon
tana, who has, taken the lead in
pressing the investigation, after
he had returned unexpectedly to
Washington from a vacation at
Pinehurst, N. C.
Mr. Slemp ' visited Palm' Beach
last December at the time former
Secretary Fall and. Edward B.' Mc
Lean, publisher5 ot the Washing
ton Post, were there and he proba
bly will be asked if he talked
with them about the oil scandal.
Call Not. I'nexpirctcd
Other members of the commit
tee who concurred in the decision
to call the president's secretary,
said he might be questioned also
ax. to 'whether he had talked with
government officials or others
mentioned in the oil cases since
the beginning of the sensational
disclosures which 'followed the
testimony ot Archie Roosevelt on
January 22.
Apparently the news that he
would be called .came as no. sur
prise to Mr, Slemp. U was under-,
stood that he had "Jjcen advised
several days ago that some mem
bers of the committee were of the
opinion that he should be ques
tioned. Upou learning of Senator
Walsh's statement, Mr. Slemp
communicated with friends at the
capitol and wa3 told that no for
mal subpoena for his appearance;
had been issued. None may be.
as in the usual course" high gov
ernment officials simply are in
vited to appear before the com
mittee. The decision to call Mr. Slemp
was only ohe development whfch'
came out of hnrried conferences
which Senator Walsh held with
committeemen and his colleague,
Senator Wheeler, democrat, Mon
tana, immediately upon reaching
Jiis office.
General procedure at the renew
al of the public hearings next
.Monday was discussed by Mr.
Walsh and Chairman Lenroot and
later it was stated that Mileton
Ailcs, president of Riggs Natjonal
bank" of Washington, probably
would be the first witness Mon
day. Senator Walsh declined to dis
close the subject matter updn
which he questioned; but
it is known that the committee de
sires to have information from the
records of the bank which might
throw some light upon rumors re
lated to those current in connec
tion with supposed oil stock
tiansactions by public officials. '
After the examination of Mr.
Ailes and Mr. Slemp,. the commit
tee probably will call in its expert
accountants before proceeding
with other witnesses. These ac
countants have completed their
audit of the books of W. B. Hibbs
& Co.', a Washington stock broker
age firm, and also of the books of
the former Washington branch ot
Ungerleider & Co., a Cleveland
stock brokerage firm.
Senator Walsh also said offi
cials of the Federal Amcricau Na
tional bank and the Commercial
National bank, both of Washing-
J toft, would be summoned in con
nection with the testimony given
by Mr. "McLean at Palm Bcaeh
that he had 'given Fall checks ag
gregating 1100,000 drawn on
these banks, and which subse
quently were returned to him un
used. :
"We shall pursue the inquiry
with respect to these chocks."
Senator Walsh said, "because the
general belief is that this transac
tion never did take place."
Mr. McLean Is now in Washing
ton under subpoena but the time
hc wtll be called- before' the com
mittee has not yet .been detcr-
f mined. Senator Walsh said he
had. conferred . last . Sunday 'with
WUton J. Lambert, counsel for
Mr. .McLean- . It may be that some
further conference will be held
before Mrr McLean lsr asfred" to

bodies. A portion of the; bones
wero littla more than ash while
others still had burned' flesh ad

physicians. The fire whitened
bones tho' physicians said gave
them' the appearance ot skeleton

readily' recognized as being j but
recently burned. . . ; .
"The fire started 'at1 6:30 a. ml.
and when I arrived at 9 o'clock
tho ashes were coll enough to
walk upon," stated Coroner Pick
el. Yet, the bones I recovered
hardly filled more than one and
one-half quart jars.
"In my opinion the body was
either dismembered and burned
piece by piece; or tho head,; arms
and legs must have been buried
or hidden in the nearby duck pond
and the torso burned in the kitclf
en stove. I am the more inclined
to the latter theory for the iron
of tho stove was partially melted,
indicating a fire reaching 2600 de
grees, Fahrenheit. The most
amazing part of the discovery of
the bones is that no trace of Mrs.
Mummey's skull or any other
skull has been recovered. The
skull is tho hardest portion'of the
human, body to destroy, it taking
from three to five houra to eradi

A chemical analysis of the bones
will be made tomorrow.
