Disappearance
of Mrs. Brundage
Remains Mystery
!
The disappearance of Mrs. Elina
Brundage, who left her home and
baby here Thursday afternoon, re
mained a deep mystery to police Satur
day. No trace or clue that cast any
IlKht on her whereabouts could be
found by authorities, working as they
are off the meager information they
have at hand.
When Mrs. Brundage departed she
'eft a note in the house stating mere
ly that she was leaving. It did not say
here she was going, or what she In
tended to do.

as discovered by her husband, Ernest

Washington, Mar. 6. While house
officials in dlscusing today the move
of administration senators to arrange
a conference with President Wilson to
discuss the peace treaty situation, said
the president had told Senator Glass,
of Virginia, two weeks ago, what his
attitude was toward a compromise on
the article ten reservation.
It was said there had been no de
cision as to whether the president
would see the senators in response to
the request of Senator Hitchcock.
Those close to the president, how
ever, pointed out that Senator Glass
must have Informed his colleagues as
to Mr. Wilson's position. -
The president's attitude toward fur
ther conferences with democratic sen
ators as reflected at the White House
was learned with manifest disappoint
ment by democratic and republican
senators who have been working for a
compromise. It was said the negotia
tions would continue, but many sena
tors predicted that If Mr. Wilson de
clined to consider further compromise
proposals the. hope of ratification
would be greatly diminished.
Among some of the republicans, how
ever, it was predicted that a refusal to
see Senntor Simmons would result In
further defections from the adminis
tration ranks and might lead to
break sufficient to secure acceptance
of the republican reservations.
The compromise proposals Senator
Simmons had planned to present to
the president were worked out in ne-
gotiations between substantial groups
of the two parties with Senator Sim
mons acting for the democrats and
Senator Watson of Indiana for the republicans.

day he would recommend a naval 4
building program for the next fiscal
year larger than that proposed by the
general board "if the peace treaty la
not ratified at this session of congress.',
Withholding final recommendation,
however, the secretary added that If
this country In the end rejected mem- M
bership In the league of nations, he
would feel impelled to renew hia rec-
ommendation for another three-year
program of construction. Reiterating
his statement of last year that "we
must have a league of nations by
which every nation will help preserve
the peace of the world without com-
petitive naval building, or we must
have incomparably the biggest navy in
the world," Mr. Daniels declared there
was no "middle ground."

by the board.
It had been his intention if the peace
treaty were ratified "with the possibil

"The question for you to decide,"
the secretary told the committee "is
whether the United States in future

round out its navy by building units of
types in which we are now short, or
shall embark on further expansion in
addition."
Secretary Daniels emphasized the
fleet's deficiency in light cruisers and

Virtually every Iritream near here
overflowed its banks and ice gorges
swept away bridges and railroad
tracks. Scores of houses along the
banks of the swollen stream were
washed away and many mills and fac

flooded boiler rooms. Men, women and
children, marooned in their homes,
were rescued in boats, some of them

"In spruce
Mr. Frear, "Secretary Baker Ignored
all the loggers and lumbermen on the
coast and selected Colonel Dlsque, a
warden of the Michigan penitentiary
and former captain In the army, who
knew nothing about lumbering. Col
onel Disque tried to learn the business
and surorunded himself with 20,000
soldiers who were largely clerks, law
yers, doctors, farmed out on cost plus
contractors logging railroads In Wash
ington and Oregon.
Contractors Inefficient.
"Four cost plus contractors were se
lected by Disque to get out lumber,
and this of these, who got $55,000,000
in contracts knew nothing about lum
bering. The only contractor with any
experience swore he had been inter
fered with by under officers sent him
by Dlsque so that three months were
lost and 20,000 feet of logs prevented
from reaching the market." t
Others In churge of the air program
Including John D. Ryan, Colonel Deeds
and W. C. Potter were complained of
by Mr. Frear for lack of experience In
lumbering operations, which he charg
ed resulted in waste of much money.
Representative Magee, republican,
New York, a member of the commit
tee, told the house that not one Amui-
lean-built battle plane or purely bomb
ing plane was produced during the War
from the expenditure of more than a
billion dollars for aircraft.
"The liberty motor, he said, "was
the only achievement of merit of the
American air service la the united
States."
The 231 Amelcan-bulU DeHaviland
pianos sent to Francs, he said, "might
be used for light day bombing" He
said these planes were "awkward and
dangerous" in service.
Criticism of the airplane lumber pro
ductlon in the Puolftc northwest was
also made by Mr. Magee, who argued
that if experienced lumbermen of that
locality had been organised, all the
lumber needed "would have been pro
duced at moderate cost,"
Lea Churges Partisanship
"Those who are responsible for this
unlawful expenditure," he added,
"should be held strictly accountable
therefor. The Siems-Carey-Kerbaugh
corporation was actually paid by the
war department a seven per cent com
mission on civilian wages paid to sol
diers working for sub-contractors in
the construction of the Lake Crescent
railroad, in excess of the compensation
fixed by the congress."
Representative Lea, democrat, Cali
fornia, discussing the report that the
crltcisms made by republican commit
tcemen were "absurd contentions and
groundless conclusions." Answering
Representative Magee of New York, as
to the net reaults of America's effort
in aviation during the war, he declared
that the republican member's state
ment of planes sent to the front wa
but a fraction of the truth.
"The 213 machines at the front de
clared by the mujorlty report to -represent
the American production," de
clared Mr. Lea, "represent only one
seventy-ninth part of the number of
machines owned by Americans during
the war.
Many Planes Built.
"America had HIS American-built
planes on the front the day of the ar
mistice but they were only part of (28
American built planes available at the
front on that day. She had 1620 serv
ice planes available for use at the front
when the armistice was signed. Four

planes went over the German battle

DEMOCRATS ASKED TO SIGN
HOOVER NOMINATING PETITIONS
Petitions have been sent to the Cap'ital 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 hia 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.
