Interlachen Club, Minneapolis, Minn., July 12.—The king of all golfers, flushed with the heat of one of the greatest battles of his career, strode lo the home hole today with his throne a trifle shaky, the professional light brigade in hot pursuit and a 40-foot putt over the rolling turf before him while close to 10,000 spectators held their breath, Bobby Jones stepped up briskly and hit the ball straight and true into the cup for a birdie 3 that closed the door to all challenges, clinching his fourth victory and successful defense of the open golf championship of the United States. The reverberating roar that greeted this final stroke of the master shot-maker of them all sounded the knell of what few lingering hopes remained as the all-conquering son of the south completed his third major golfing triumph of the year at home and abroad. All that Bobby needs to do now to make It a clean sweep for 1930, with all four major British and American titles dangling from one man’s belt for the first time in history, is to recapture the United States amateur crown at Philadelphia in September. Set« Near-Reoord Jones, with successive rounds of 71-73-68-75, finished his conquest today with a total of 287, the second lowest total in the history of the AmenctBi-open and only one stroke short of the record set 14 years ago by Chick Evans at the nearby Mlnikahda course.

DROUGHT HUS HOOVER CAMP Forest Fires Also Ravage Retreat in Virginia and Fishing Is Ruined Tariff Enlarges Import Market By CALVIN COOLIDGE Coupyright 1930, for The Hawk-Eye. NORTHAMPTON, Mass., July 12.—Some foreign nations seem alarmed at our increases of duties on imports. Such alarm is not justified. On the whole, the increases are moderate and generally intended only to equalize the difference between foreign and domestic costs of production. It ought to be remembered that following all the recent increases in tariff rates, have come large increases in imports. The only exception was due apparently to the Spanish war, but a year later large increases began. For over a generation each protective tariff has changed the basis but enlarged the market for imports. Of course some lines have been injured and others compelled to come in on a rate more fair to United States standards of wages and living. This is not Baying the new tariffs promoted or retarded the increases, but the fact is higher rates did not decrease the former in> ports. The most reasonable explanation seems to be that pro* tec tion encouraged business and a more prosperous people »ought more goods from abroad. Instead of being disturbed at the    tariff,    foreign nations should know that our general imports    will    be    large so long as our business is good. 4 CALVIN COOLIDGH, ^ Bv The A ssoeiated Press. Orange, Va., July 12. — President Hoover came to his mountain camp , today to find an aroma of burning pine, flowers from which leaves were withering and streams that were dwindling to a mere trickle. Drought that has added to the woes : of the farmer during the growing sea- j son was stretching a blighting hand ! into the Virginia mountains. It left the timber country easy prey for fires and blazes dotted the hills. The largest was about 10 miles from the president’s camp, others were nearer and as the party approached the camp they rode through an odcr of burning pine. Drinking from the spring was plentiful but one of the president’s favorite trout streams was only a trickle. Three spokesmen for the president in the senate—Allen of Kansas, Smoot of Utah and Vandenberg of Michigan —accompanied him on the trip. Will Rogers Says: To The Hawk-Ey** Beverly hills, caiif., July 12.—The republicans are trying to get rid of the chairman of their national committee. They can’t throw him out—he knows where the body is buried. The next time they hire one, his contract will have a two-week cancellation clause in it. They think this fellow don’t add the proper class to the party. The republicans want a man that will lend dignity to the of-lce and the democrats want a nan that will lend some money.

Baltimore, Md., July 12.—Refused his liberty though no charges are pending against him, John MacDonald, worn and broke, at only 58, today charged that police of San Francisco were to blame for his testimony which 11 years ago sent Tom Mooney to prison in California for life. His retraction does not apply to Warren K. Billings, convicted with Mooney, who he says is guilty. Mooney and Billings, labor leaders, were convicted of the preparedness day bombing in San Francisco in 191G which claimed eight lives, on MacDonald’s testimony that he had seen the two plant a suitcase containing the Infernal machine. This testimony, MacDonald said after his arrest last night through identification by a newspaper photograph, was planned by officials, and he was coached in it by the state prosecutor. Along with the story of official interference in his 1917 testimony, MacDonald coupled a charge that he had been offered bribes by the police and forced to identify Mooney, who he declared he never had seen before he was taken to the San Francisco jail and told by police the labor leader was “his man.” Iowa Professor and Wife Sail Sea Alone By The A ssoeiated Press.

Chicago, 111., July 12—The policeman ! who chased a blonde gunman from j the scene of Jake Lingle’s slaying today identified a picture at the detective bureau as that of the man he pursued.
