ed a lone marauder who hnfl hrniten
into the bank building, at about
o'clock, ...
Sheriff W. I. Needham and Chief
of Police Welsh were Immediately
informed and patrolmen of Salem
were notified to keep a lookout on
all travel routes, should the robber
head north.
According to the information furn
ished the authorities by those report
ing the attempt, the robber was stand
ing near the vault when the three
men paused, curious as to the pres
ence of anyone in the bank at tnat
hour. They did not fully realize that
the intruder meant business until the
lone robber brandished a gun. This
caused general scattering of the 'wit
nesses' and the alarm was sent out,
the intruder meanwhile making a
hurried get away.
Sheriff Needham and Deputies
Bower and Smith hurried to-the scene
of the attempted robbery. Investiga
tion disclosed that the door of the
bank had been "Jimmied" with the
aid of a chisel. The knob of the vault
lock had been knocked off and evi
dence showed that efforts were being
made 'to smash the ' combination
when the Intruder was Interrupted.
It was afterwards ascertained that
the tools used in the attempt were
stolen from a section supply house
near Jefferson.
The only articles reported as miss
ing from the bank are two pistols, a
45 calibre Colts automatic and a
German Luger. The guns are the
property of G'.'P. Griffith, cashier of
the bank. Mr. Griffith values the
guns highly, as they are souvenirs of
his service In France during the late
. The following description of the
,man Is given: Age about 35 years,
weight near 160 pounds, hair dark,
black mustache cropped short, beard
of about week's growth. Those who
disturbed the robber stated also that
he was wearing a dark suit of clothes
a dark slouch hat and a checked
mackinaw coat. '
BY 700,000 VOTES
Chicago, Mar. 3. The National
Farm Bureau federation said to be
backed by 700,000 farmers in twenty
eight states, will represent "the man
with his feet in the furrow." J. R. How
ard of Clemens, Iowa, temporary pres
ident, said at the opening meeting
here today.
Action was taken to establish a gen
eral office in Washington and another
in the middle west, Indianapolis and
Chicago being among the chief con-
tenders for the latter., - j
Plans to secure legislation which
will simplfy the machinery of market
ing and distribution between the farm
er and consumer were discussed.
'Heretofore the farmer has ben mis-
represented by all sorts of organiza-
tions and men who were not real farm-
jers," said Mr. Howard. "They, have
been painted as radicals. I do not be
lieve, for instance, that two per cent
of the farmers of this country are in
favor of the Plum plan for control of
railroads which they were represented
as favoring in the Faruier-Labor Con
gress recently held here."
The purpose of the meeting la to
foderate the county and s'ate farm
bureaus which are already functioning
in 28 states, into a solid, national body,
according to Mr. Howard.
We are planning a system to wik
a direct referendum vote of the farm
ers on all public questions so that the
federation may truly represent them
This referendum is provided for In the

Hearing cf House Committee
on Relief Measures for
Former Service Men Brings
on Second Word Battle
Washington, Mar. 3. Another row
occurrd today at hearings before the
house ways and means committee on
soldier relief measures. It came when
Edward K Hale, representing veterans
of foreign wars, told the committee
that statements made yesterday by
Franklin D!OHer, commander of tne
American Legion, were "eroneous and
should be contradicted."
A storm of protest resulted, but
Chairman Fordney restored quiet by
warning .that unless order could be
maintained "we will quit these hear
ings." Atter five minutes of wrangling
among members, Chairman Fordney
ruled that witnesses should not criti
cise other organisations.
Hale urged relief to discharged serv
ice men at the rate of 130 a month In
stead, of $50 with an addtional grant
of $100 to those who served overseas.
He also favored passage of the Mor
gan bill, which would give service men
the option of selecting homesteads.
Would Tax Incomes.
"How could the money be raised for
this bonus?" asked Representative
Kitchin, democrat North Carolina.
"There Is. a publio debt of twenty-six
billion dollars now."
"Our plan," said Hale,M'would be to
tax all Incomes above $50,000 at the
rate of 8 per cent, graduating that un
til seven per cent would v charge on
IncSmes above $1000,000. This vould
provide $200,000,000 according to the
Internal revenue bureau."
"Some of the alleged economies prac
ticed by this congress are a crime," the
witness said.
Hale said "lip appreciation" and
nothing more" had been extended to
discharged soldiers.
Members of congress received back
pay when they were discharged from
the army and returned to the house, he
aum. acicung tnat .others were equally
as-'; deserving as ex-soldler congress
men. . -
Service Men Tdte
Assertion by tho witness former
service' men were without work
brought from Representative Green,
republican, Iowa, the statement that
many farm In the middle west oould
not be cultivated because of the
shortage of labor.
Hale replied that the most unem
ployment would be found in cities.
The veterans; association plan, he
added, would provide both financial
relief and provide for taking home
steads. Representative Hull, ' democrat,
Tennessee, said granting a bonus
would impose severe burdens' on the
average taxpayer of the country and
would Increase living costs.
Increased taxes of $SOO,000,000
musi De raised to meet present war
expenditures without granting a cent
to the service men. Representative

Judge Wilson Declares Commission Of
Overt Act By Former Service Man Dar
ing Centralia Armistice Day Parade Not
Established By Testimony In Case.
Montesano, Wash., Mar. 3. Defense counsel in the trial cf
ten alleged I. W. W. charged with the murder of Warren O.
Grimm, Centralia Armistice Day parade victim, has failed to show
that Warren O. Grimm committed an overt act on the day he lost
his life. It has failed to show that Grimm was a party to any
alleged conspiracy to raid the I. W. W. hall in Centralia.
This was
the conclusion of Juoge
John M. Wilson, presiding at the trial,
today. The ruling came at the close of
the morning session of court, Judge
Wilson holding that the evidence thus
far produced by the defense had fallen
far short of showing an overt, act on
the part of Grimm, The court also
held that the defense had failed to
show preconcert and presence on t
part 'Of the deceased In any alleged
, Evidence Falls Short.
The entire morning session of court
was devoted to arguments on the ad
missibility of evidence which defense
counsel asserted would show a conspir
acy to raid the I. W. W. halt.
"The court is of the opinion that the
evidence falls far short of being suffi
cient to show an overt act on the part
of Grimm," said Judge Wilson In rul
ing. Judge Wilson declared, that In
his opinion, only generalities relating
to an alleged conspiracy have thus far
ben brought out by the defense. Bvi.
dence of what may have occurred at
meetings of Centralia commercial in
terests, at which It Is alleged a raid
on the hall was discussed, cannot be
ofefred, the court ruled, until Grimm's
knowledge of, or presence at such
meetings was shown, ,

, Petitions have been sent to the Capital Journal office and
can be signed there to place Herbert Hoover's name upon the .
primary ballot as a democratic candidate for president.
The fact that Hoover has refused to state his party alleg
iance does not prevent the people of either or both parties
from nominating him against the wishes of the politicians,
and his own wishes. It is a case of the job seeking the man.;
Only registered democrats are eligible to sign these
petitions, but if any republican will get out similar petitions
to nominate Hoover, the Capital Journal will render similar
aid in securing signatures.
It is up to the people to beat the politicians to it and name
the next president. If you are a democrat, sign this petition.
If you are a republican, get out a petition of your own.

adopted at the regular monthly meet-'
Ing held Tuesday night at the Armory.
The proposition receives the em
phatic support of the Lcglonairea who
base the utility for the project upon
the authorisation granted to county

appropriation of not less than $10,009
for such purposes.
Plans were formulated at Inst night's

confident that, with county and city
aid and by general subscription, suf
ficient funds will be-readlly secured
for the emtton of a suitable building
which will be splendid memorial to

Those who advocated the plan at
the meeting pointed out , that many

erected In the United States and' that
there are already two In Oregon.

Despite the fact that the county budget
