WASHINGTON, tjet: 11- Work
ing cooperation between business
and the! public "in accord with
the dictates of common sense,"
was held np tonight by President
Coolidge In an address, by radio
to employes of the H. J. 'Heine
company, gathered at banquets In
-various cities to celebrate the an
niversary of the founding of the
business as-the "true and practi
cal ideal" wished by the government.-
;- . - j-' ; -.-:
The supremacy of. the govern
ment has been the main motive
dominating the economic and po
litical development pf recent years
he said, adding thai it has brought
the public interest Into the equa
tion of modern industrial and com- i
mercial relations. 1 . '
fjBut the government, Mr.
Coolidge declared, prefers to let
business go its own, way, "so long
as that Is the right way; so long
as it is the "way of honest and
genuine service to he real public
interest. ' : - i
i :The government.; he continued,
mfnst be the servant "of the pub
lic welfare and the; creation of an
informed and seasoned' public
opinion. !:' J ' " -
"It cannot be dominated by any
privilege, the president warned,
"it cannot be subservient to any
private advantage.! It must ; al
ways .represent th public. "With
the hearty sympathy of business
thd the people we have ' made , a
long advance toward such a stan
dard. There? anr - encouraging
sighs of readmessl td go farther
on." the same vayj - The govern
mentr will-surely W- prepared to
giro all encouragement In such a
program. For, byj these methods
only shall we bring about a proper
balanee, a secure and lasting ad
justment of the supreme Individu
al Interest by bringing It into har
mony with the highest consider
ation of the national welfare.
The people of America will keep
control and ownership of ' their
property, Mr. Coolidge insisted;
"as a preliminary to the mainte
nance of their supremacy over
their government.":
They know," he added, "that
when the government begins to
fn property it begins to own
people. They want all these pow
ers in their own hinds."
It is the firm policy of the Am
erican people, the president de
clared to' insist that "business
forms and methods shall be sub
ordinate to the public interest."
In this, regard, he said, public
authority: as represented by the
government has taken up the at
titude of "moderation and reason
ableness in dealing with these dif
ficult and complex problems."; '
; Blows aimed at curbing and reg
ulating monopolies have been em
ployed for control and regulation,
not, destruction, he explained.
"It is jno part of public policy,
as' the American people now con
ceive It, (to tear down legitimate
and useful business." ; I
,' Exemplifying the changed atti
tude of the public and Interest in
their new relations Is the changed
policy toward consolidation tn rail

President Coolidge Gets Op
timistic Reports of Na
tional Campaign
WASHINGTON, Oct. 11. -Several
optimistic reports on the po
litical situation were presented to
President Coolidge today when he
Indulged in a series of conferences
with various visitors. For the
second time in as' many days, Mr.
Coolidge was advised, by a farm
leader to hold up for perhaps a
week or bo the appointment of the
commission he has proposed to in
vestigate agriculture, lest Its work
become involved, in politics.
. C. E. Bradfute, president of the
farm bureau federation, expressed
this view today, at the same time
agreeing with Mr. Coolidge . that
the time is now appropriate for a
survey of farm conditions. Farm
ers, he said,! generally were in a
much Improved' state, but he de
clared that this was only compar
ative and there was much' which
could yet .be. done to place the
country solidly on Its feet. :
The political situation in Iowa
was discussed with Harvey Ing
ham, Des Moines publisher who de
clared the ) republican national
ticket,- although affected . some
what by the campaign of Senator
Brookhart, republican nominee for
the senate there,' would carry the
state.. Senator Brookhart also, in
his opinion ! will be elected, - he
saidt, !
: Mr. Coolidge has arranged to
speak before a meeting here on
October 23 of the eastern division
of . the' Chamber of Commerce of
the United States. He also will
speak next Wednesday at the un
veiling of the statue here of Bish
op Francis Asbury' of " the Metho
dist Episcopal church.
The president tonight spoke
over the radio to (employes of. the
H. J. Heins ' company, who were
gathered at banquets in many ci
ties to celebrate the anniversary
of the founding of the bureaus.

Present Secretary of State Is
I Bitterly Assailed By Mem
ber of President Wilson's
States That Attempt Is Made
to Joke About Re
publican Failures
"WASHINGTON. Oct. 11. -Secretary
Hughes recent campaign
speech in Cincinnati was made tha
particular target pf an attack de
livered against the record of the
present administration here to
night by Josephus Daniels, who
served- as secretary of the navy
Under" Wilson.
; Mr. Daniels took as his text for
a radio address the declaration of
Mr. Hughes that "we not ! only
have common honesty in ' this
country, we have a sense of hum
or." This, said Mr. Daniels, shift
ed the republican campaign : to a
new strategic base. ; 7
"The conspiracy of silence," he
continued, broke down everywhere
except in the White House. Oh.
I forgot, and in the navy depart
ment. It was converted Into a
deaf and dumb asylum until after
election. The muscling of Wilbur
was not a new policy, however.
, "Every responsible man , in the
navy department was muzzled at
the Washington, conference while
the secretary of state hauled down
the Amerclan flag and handed the
supremacy of the sea' to Britain,
the supremacy of the air to France
and the control of the Pacific to
Japan. i
"The secretary undertakes now
to make a joke of a long' series of
scandals and rejoices that we have
a sense of humors It is a novel
method of campaigning. But Mr.
Hughes is a past' master at prac
ticing it, not to speak of his abil
ity to see a joke which did not
exist in the income tax law which.

posed, or his sense" of humor be

Three Political Parties Lose
No Time in Starting
1 ! flffphcivps
LONDON, Oct. il. (By the
Associated Press) .The three big
parties have lost nd time In plac
ing their preferences before the
electorate. Three election mani
festos are out tonight. The labor
manifesto is signed among other,
by' Ramsajr MacDonald. John Rob
ert Clynes, Rpbej-t. Smlllle; -George
Lansbury and Arthur' Henderson.
The conservative manifesto Is
signed by Stanley Baldwin, and
the liberal, by H. H. Asquith and
Mr. Lloyd George.
The first noticeable feature,
which undoubtedly is an out-
growthh of the hew experience of
the country In having had a labor
administration Cor the first time,
is the small part how played in
the election literature by foreign
affairs and the ; defense question
These are scarcely mentioned in
the labor manifesto, apart from
the Russian treaties and a brief
paragraph cl&imng Credit for the
Improved - relations with France
and Germany and noting: the im
portant steps j taken at Geneva to
ward ; arbitration, j security and
general disarmament. :
In the libera) document, allu
sions are equally scanty but in the
conservative manifesto, following
the tory tradition, the empire .and
foreign relations' are given greater
attention, but still are overshad
owed by social and economic
questions. In reference to foreign
affairs, Mr. Baldwin pronounces
bis party for "cooperation' in all
matters admitting bf common ac
tion with the United States" for
the support and strengthening of
the league of nations on practical
lines. : ' . " ii 't
will! regard to defense, he says
that the unionists,! If returned to
power, , will have to "examine
afresh the position in which the
defenses of the -empire have been
left by the present administration'
and while favoring any practical
proposals for the general limita
tion of armaments must "scruti
nize carefully, in conjunction with
the dominions.:; i

Jury Deliberates Hour and
Half Before Bringing in
Verdict in Sensational
Trial at Tacoma
Accused Man Not Visibly Af
fected at Delivery From
Death Sentence
TACOMA, Wash., Oct. 11.
Roland R. Pothier was acquitted
of the murder of Major Alexander
P. Cronkhite by a jury in federal
court after deliberating for ah
hour and a : halt this : afternoon;
One ballot was taken shortly af
ter the lurv retired : at 2:45.
showing the jurors in accord oh
acquittal according to the evi
dence on hand. 'After discussing
various phases of the case, the
jurors decided that they had nb
evidence to justify conviction and.
notified the baliff at 4:15 that
they bad reached a verdict.
Cantain Robert RosenblutB,
jointly accused with Pothier for
the alleged murder, will not be
tried, according to Thomas P. Re
velle. United States district attor
ney. : Rosenbluth's trial was set
for October 22 and the grand jury
Indictment against him will be
dismissed on motion of the gov
ernment. Revelle said. ,
Government Aot sarpnsea
The verdict came as jno surprise
to the government, it was said.
Revelle declared before the ver
dict came in that the government
realized that its case against tne
defendant was not strong. In fact
the question of dismissing the In
dictments was raised shortly after
the grand Jury returned its find
ings two years ago, but Attorney
General Daugherty ruled that
having been placed under a cloud
by the Indictments the defendants
were entitled to have their names
cleared by a Jury, Revelle said.
It developed , today through rec
ords in the office of United. States
Marshal Edward Been; that Maj
or General A'delbert : Cronkhitei
father of thV slain man and mov
ing spirit in the investigations of
the last six years had been sub
poenaed by the government as a
witness more 'than '30 days' ago
but has never' answered the sub
poena Several telegrams have
been" sent to General Cronkhite
bv the federal authorities within
the last .three weks and the only
response received was about 10
days ago to the- effect that the
general misunderstood the nature
of the summons.
Pothier Unmoved
' ' Pothier showed no .emotion eith
er before or after his acquittal.
Asked about his Intentions and
how soon he would return to hU
wife and baby In Central Falls,
R. 14 he reDlied that he would do
nothing ' until he had made ar
rangements with the government
for transportation.
Under, the court's Instructions,
the jury might have brought in
an. of four verdicts. Tney are:
Guilty of murder in the first de
gree, guilty of murder, in the first
deeree without the death penalty.
guilty of murder in the second de
gree or not guilty, i The jurors
ihitod from reaching a
verdict of manslaughter and If
they determined that Major cronK
hlte met his death at the nana 01
Pnthief accidentally they were in
structed ? to acquit, even though
they found the defendant guuty
of gross carelessness and negll
men In the use of his pistol. The
manslaughter verdice. was with
held through the statute ot ami
tations which provides that a per
son cannot be brought to trial oh
this charge three years after the
crime was committed. The charge
ot fist degree murder-is never out
lawed by the passage of time.

J. P. Morgan & Co.
j NEW YORK, Octf ll Ameri
ca's portion of the $200,000,000
German loan under the Dawes
plan, amounting to $110,000,000
will be offered to the' public on
Tuesday by a nationwide banking
syndicate headed by J. P. Morgan
& Company and Kunn Loeb &
Company. The demands of the
smaller dealers indicate1 that the
offering will be' heavily oversub
scribed. J. P. Morgan & Com
pany, in a formal statement, said
In part: . .', ' - ,
; "The proceeds of . the American
stare of the loan; together with
the portions to be offered In vary
ing allotments in Great Britain,
France, Belgium, Italy, . Switzer
land, Holland, Sweden and Ger
many, are to be used : to 'make
operative the plan of : the first
committee of. experts appointed by
the reparation commission, popu
larly described in Germany, ' and
of financing essential deliveries in
kind during the preliminary period
of economic rehabilitation."
I The full details of the loan will
not be made known until Tuesday,
but It was learned today the pro
ceeds will be used as a gold re
serve for the new bank set up
under the Dawes plan and sent
to Germany as fast as they are
needed. The bonds carry sink
lug fund provisions, which are
said to be sufficient to retire the
issue at maturity. f i
While the German loan does not
carry the guarantee of several na-
tjons as did that recently granted
to Austria under the league of
nations ' supervision, the pro
tocol la the London agreement
whereby the ' principal nrIons
concerned recognize the priority
of the loan over all other obllga
tfons was described by one banker
as a "guarantee of conduct."
J Successful flotation of this issue
is expected to stimulate the exten
sion of credits to various German
industries, which will now be able
to receive payment from their
government for the materials that
they have sen to France and other
allied countries in the form of
