New York, Apr, 80. Construction,
rather than reconstruction Is the great
task confronting -this congress, the
next congress and perhaps even the
sixty-eighth congress, Senator Walter

at the luncheon meeting.
Senator Edge declared "there is too

enough business In government."
"The United States must open and
cultivate world wide markets for its
goods," he continued. "The people of
the United States cannot , consume the
entire production of the land, nor

they. could and merely Interchanged

world markets must be won and culti

"when our financial and economic
stake in Europe affairs Is so great that

have turned gamblers and wasters.
For plain living and high thinking, we

the war, and who came back better

Huirt To Plead Guilty To
Murder Charge;. Promised
Life Term as Punishment
Los Angeles. Cal., Apr. 30 Walter Andrew Watson, confess
ed bigamist and murderer, will be indicted by a county grand jury
next Monday for the murder of Nina Lee Deloney ; he will then
appear in court and plead guilty and in consideration of his plea
and the saving to the state, the district attorney will ask for &
sentence of life imprisonment against him, instead of the death
penalty. This statement was made here today by W. C. Doran,
chief deputy district attorney, after a conference with Watson's
Los Angeles, Cal., April SO. Mur-l
der, and not bigamy, will be the
charge to be faced by James R. Hulrt,
who last night admitted, after an In
vestigation extending over nearly a
month and enmeshed him beyond
hope, that he had killed two women,
had at least contributed to the deaths
of two more and had married at least
twenty. Including; the four who lost
The murder charge, according to
the officers of the district attorney
will be based on the alleged confess
sion of Hulrt that he killed Nina Lee
Dejoney, one of his "wives" in Hs
Angeles county, and afterward con
cealed her body at a lonely place in
the mountains of Imperial county,
whence he carried it, over a travelled
highway, wrapped In blankets and
laid In hi's touring tar.
Officers Seek Body
After Hulrt had finished his state
ment, at midnight last night. District
Attorney Lee Woolwlne, two deputy
i sheriffs and other investigators left
by automobiles for tha soot described
by the prisoner as the place where I
he had hidden Mrs. Dcloney's body.
The-trlp will require at least two days
and it was said that no formal charge
of murder would be filed until, the
party had returned. Enough evidence,
even without the finding of the Dody
ot Mrs. Deloney, or the admission of
the alleged confession, Is already
available to support such a charge,
the officers said.
The murder charge and all subse
quent proceedings, will be brought
against the man under the name oi
Walter Andrew Watson, it was said;
this course will be taken because the
defendant told the officers, they said,
that he did not know his true name,
but was. most frequently known as
Watson; because the marriage with
Nina Lee Deloney, which preceded the
alleged murder, was solemnised un-
I der that name and because It was the
I name most used by the man In Los

ment was given ln response to ques
tions and more than four hours time
was devoted to its completion. It was
transcribed , at once and will be pre
sented to Watson for his signature to-
The presence of Watson's attor
ney and the complete deliberation
with which the matter was handled
caused sheriff's officers to express
the belief last night that some prom
ise of immunity from the death pen
alty had been given the man ln ex
change for his aid in clearing up the
Involved mysteries of his marriages
and as a consideration of the ex
pense that would be avoided by elim
inating a trial.
RelatM Life Story
Watson's statement, ln brief, was
that he was a native of the south,
probably of Tennessee; he said his
first memory was of finding himself
ln an 'orphan asylum where he re
mained until he was about ten years
old then, he said, he went to live
with a family named Harper and re
mained with- them for about five
years, moving to Pittsburg, Kansas;
he said he next "found himself" work
ing for a blacksmith and while in
that employment he was struck on
the head and knocked unconscious

the transcript of his statement, ne
went to a farm nearby where he llv-
ed for, about two years and then he
began to drift over the country.
' His first marriage, he said, was In
Canada "during the war." He told tho
officers he had been married so often
since that time thut he could not re
member names, places, nor dates.
He gave them, with frequent prompt
