J. F. Morloy. county detective,

auto repair shop near the White
Pollcun garage. Is In tho hospital
with a bullet holo through his lungs
and wounds In his leg and wrist ns
tho result, it is bollevod, ot an at

first Mamndo placed tbo blame on
two Russians, "red" propagandists,
who, ho said, woro moved to. kill him
bocauso of lilu betrayal ot .their plans
to the police He made the accusa
tlon as a dying statement,' but bath
men named had complcto alibis. In
tho prcsonco ot Morloy, however, ho
partly admitted that he was Involved
In a robbery and was shot by his
accomplices bocauso they feared he
would Inform tho police Mamado

ties around tho bay. It is said, and
aa a result of' Information suppllod
by him agalnet his radical comrades
a number have been deported. His
reputation as-a "stool pigeon" spread
in tho undor-world and it is believed
bo wus shot by men whotoarod that
their botrayal would bo Mamado'e
noxt more. - . ,
As soon .as ho Is-out of tho-jhos-pital

CHICAaO. Mar. 8. Tho Amorl

first annual meeting hero, adoptod a
resolution,. denouncing-tho attempMo

yrlthMho radicals of the-Industrial
world. The organization Iscomposetf
ot 1,060,000 members ot farm bur-
oaus In 28 Btates.
The resolution declares:
'Wo wish tho American people
definitely to understand that tho or
ganization styled 'The Farmors' Na
tional Council has no authority to
speak In behalf of tho farmers ot
this country and any and all efforts
on tho part of 'Tho Farmers' Nation

WILSAN IJAIiKS AT
WASHINGTON, Mar. 8. It was
announced from the White House
that President. Wilson will probably

Lodge's reservations to Article Ten
in the form ot a letter to Senator
Hitchcock. Administration officials
said the President would not accept
the Lodge reservation.
Administration official said the
President discussed tho Taft reserva

west coa&t Lumbermen's association.
Tho output last week of 123 milts
contributing to tbo report was 8C,-
370,474 feet. Tho normnl output
would havo boon 89,803,000 feet.
Actual production was thus within
4,432,526 feet, or 95.0G per cent, ot
Tho only unfavorable element in
the lumbor situation, tho Teport con
tinues, lies in tho continued short
age of cars. Shipments for tho week
woro 1943 cars, but tho unshipped
order remaining, on tho books oftho
mills aggrcgato 12,601 cars. These
unfilled shipments would bo substan
tlally heavlor wero tho mIHs;jto ac-
copt all tho orders that aro offered to
them. Knowing that they cannotdo
pend upon adequato car supply, tho
manufacturers regularly reject more
business ovory "week than they ac
cept. ' "
Desplto this practice, acceptances
last week aggregated 54,828,579
feot, of which 43,350,000 feet werq
booked to movo by rail.
Costs of lumber production give no
promiso ot diminishing. Logs re?
main scarce and prices aro firm!
Other costs havo shown a slight In
creases slnco tho first of tho year.

BOSTON, Mar. 8. A "dig-

claimed In several northern 4
New England states ,today,
whllo railroad' Industries and
community workers combined 4
to restore passenger and freight

4 Vermont lit tho most serious in

marooned in many small cities
and feeding refugees has be-
come a problem.
EL PASO, Tex., Mar. 8. Mexican
constitutional lawyers have been dis
cussing scriouBly tho question of
whether President Venustiano car
ranza will have tho right to continue
as president ot Moxlco after Novem
ber 30, 1920, in case the scheduled
'summer elections should fail to take
place or in case the successful can'
didato should fail'to present himself
for tho oath of office.
Possible conflict between two
artloles of the constitution of 1917
is pointed out In an article recently
nubllshed.. In Excelsior, ot Mexico
cny. - : v$$
"Article' 83 contains the 'ibaolnte
Injunction that' any one who tortce
nahold ;th?LbJsn .office, pt ifggjdtrot
of tho republic" shall not hold It for
another term," the Excelsior says,
quoting' a number of legal experts.
''But Article 84 reads:
" ilf at the'beginning ot a consti
tutional (presidential) term, the
president-elect should fall to appear,
or if the election should have failed
to tako place by December 1, the-person
iWhoso- term. Is about to expire
shall, ceaso to function, and., there
slialL bo named to the presidency,
with title of provisional president,
such persons as may be chosen by
tho congress of tho union.' "
.It is argued that Article 84 con
taina not provision that prohibits the.
outgoing president irom Deing uameu
provisional president by the congress
in tho ovent the contingencies sped
tied In the article should occur..
Tho weight of 'opinion,, however,
according to "Excelsior," is that the
spirit, ' it not the letter, of the con
stitution Is opposed to the continu-
anco in office, even by' congressional
authority, of. a person whose term as
president is about- to expire.
