off the threatened on of Ethiopia is a gift by i powers oí colonies in Africa Meantime the British govern ment speeded up the movement of troops and naval forces towards strategic points on the British route of empire Mussolinis references to the colonial problem were noted in the foreign office where the delicate colonial question has been under consideration since Reichsfuehrer Hitler demanded the return of come of Germanys lost territory The British government was rep resented as believing thtt the colonial problem is an interna tional matter which can only be bv the in ference but there was no sign that Gveat Britain would permit any sudden parley forced by the pres ent turn of events in Africa Circles in close touch with the ItaloEthiopian dispute said Mus eolini might endeavor to get the support of Hitler before making any demands for colonial gifts Such action they said would be regard ed as an effort to make the ques tion international instead of indi vidual The war office announced today that the fixed defenses at Aden Arabia as well as at Malta would be brought up to strength already approved Troops to Leave England Troops are beine assembled at Southampton for dispatch to these two posts key points along Eng lands lifeline of the which begins at Gibraltar and ends at Aden after the Suez canal pass that Malta and Aden would be reinforced with units of royal artillery engineers and sisnal corps the war office however specified that thesewere the only moves to be made now The war office announcement came as the question of colonial possessions among the great pow ers quasidormant since the treaty of Versailles assumed greater pro portions amid repercussions from the ItaloEthlopian crisis Fear that Mussolinis African sor tie might blow the volcanic lid off was accentuated by II Duce himself The London Daily Mail quoted him as saying in an Interview The time has perhaps come to raise the ques tion of colonies in all its implica tions It would be to the benefit of all civilized states especially those unjustly deprived of their share in the extraction of the wealth of the In Germany advices said Count Schwerln vou Rosigk minister of fi nance made it clear that the Ger mans erstwhile need for colonies was fast developing into Germanys He was reported to have said that when the question of re vision of colonial questions was dis cussed internationally Germany would not be satisfied to allow her expansion desires to be ignoret The British war office has ordered troops to embark in the steam er Neuralia from Southampton to in the next few days to re llfcfce garrisons at British key pffiits in the Mediterranean In Malta In the Medí térro n nan public air raid stations have been ordered built and the populace has been instructed in the matter of safeguards in the event of gas at tacks The British Mediterranean fleet has been ordered to leave Thursday to take up positions where it will be within swift striking distance of the Suez canal Spain Is Worried Too Spain as well as Britain is wor ried about her colonial possessions In Africa Spain fears an uprising of Moroican tribesmen may result from the eeneral antiEuropean feeling in sympathy with Ethiopia Spain has reinforced its Gibraltar garrison and placed dumps of mu nition there ready for speedy trans port to Spanish Morocco The London Post today under the heading America passes lashes out at the United States neutrality bill saving Ever since the days of Napoleon the United States policy has insisted on the freedom of the seas with fre quently embarrassing emphasis Now til of s sudden shn has veered to the opposite extreme America one of the sig of the peace treaties Did not instigate the socalled peace pact Having undertaken Interventions of this kind can she legitimately disclaim all responsibility for the consequences There may well come a turn of events which will presently compel Amerca to abandon her mode of

cantaloupes 6 for 25c Cut Eíite Groe MM Ph 361 County Attorney Frank F Eck dall today sent to The Gazette a statement setting forth his side of recent controversies between offic ials in the Lyon county courthouse The statement concerns the pay ment of county vouchers the recent injunction suit brought by Attorney Eckdall against the county commis sioners to keep them from paying claims without his approval the in junction was denied by District Judge Lon C the Empo ria State bank tax case this case was settled today by the county commission and bank the Katy railroad tax case the Fidelity bank tax case and other matters of courthouse business Mr Eckdalls statement To the Editor of The Gazette Sir Saturday approximately 10 persons presented vouchers for my approval and I immediately ap proved each one While I was busy in court proceeding most of the day I left the courtroom on two oc casions that I might occasion no delay in the allowance of any prop er vouchers to any person Later I learned that the board of commis sioners refused to allow them say ing that they did not know whether they could do so because it was not the first Monday in the month I had never raised the question that they could not allow bilk of this kind The one thing that I have questioned was their right to allow bills without my flist having passed upon them Their right to allow bills at any regular adjourned or special meeting is unquestioned and I have only suggested that it was the common sense thing to notify me when they were sitting to allow bills This morning in the public interest I have volunteered an opinion to this effect The law pro vides that county attorney shall give advice and opinions when re quested This I have always done and before this time I have of fered my advice without its having been requested The law makes it the duty of a hoard to allow any and all bills at least monthly at regular adjourned cr special meetings and this law means that they may do so at other than the first meeting in the month One meeting a month in counties of this size is mandatory The motion for a new trial filed by mo last week in the injunction case could have no bearing upon their allowance ot bills during the month as was intimated by the statements of the board in The Ga zette Saturday I have repeatedly stated that the law permitted them to allow bills at any regular session and that in consequence I shfmld be notified when they wished to allow bills Otherwise I would not or dinarily attend thtlr deliberations Not Determined on Appeal I have not determined upon an appeal for as long as the board and treasurer stay within the law there would be little practical reason for such action However as the law requires that a motion for a new trial be filed within three days after the trial the motion was lilcd only to preservo and continue certain rights in the event that circum stances should change The statement attributed to me after the bills have been allowed i up to me to determine whether they should have been allowed which appeared in The Gazette Saturday was incorrect My duty is to pass upon bills before their allowance as they cannot lawfull be allowed until such approval has boon had T appreciate that as ft employe my first obligation is t that public and that the difference between the board and the trcas urcr and myself must not interfer with the public welfare and this 1 the reason for my approving ever voucher presented to me on Satur day and the only reason that I offe an opinion to the board at thi time It should be recalled that th hoard and the treasurer assumei the offensive in this If the had faced me with thtlr complaints undoubtedly our differences coul have been Ironed out in the publi interest but instead they proceed ed to make the attackthrough th press and by the dííümiimHon o untruths over county and state Continued oa Two hreatent to Force Adjourn ment of Congress Unlest Cot tonWheat Loan Dispute If Settled Soon Jse of Constitutional Power to Get Rid of Congress Has Nev er Been Used TODAYS RESULTS NUMBER 22 Washington t Aug 26 Au horitative sources on Capitol Hill ate today said President Roosevelt lad threatened to force adjourn ment of congress unless house and nate could soon settle their dispute ver the cottonwheat loans These sources who asked that lames not be used said the Presl ent was basing his threat on this anguage in article 2 section 3 of he constitution He the president may on ex raordinary occasions convene both houses xxx and in case of dis agreement between them with re pect to the time of adjournment le may adjourn them to such time as he shall think proper x Never in the history of the coun iry record books immediately avail able showed had a president availed limself of that power One man close to the President ald however Roosevelt is great on setting None could say how long the President might give the two houses o reach an agreement or whether IB seriously meant such a threat or was merely making it in an attempt o get the two branches together Meanwhile conference after con erence went on bath nt Capitol and White House in an attempt to com romise the loan dispute Democratic leaders were hopeful of settling it tonight with adjourn ment to follow immediately As they met in late afternoon for a third council of war President Roosevelt

adjournment of congress tonight The senate itself recessed for five lours pending negotiations with the louse leadership on the stillsecret methods decided upon to break the deadlock and end the

standing vote he was defeated 178 to 47 Adjournment then was approved 172 to 47 on a standing vote Again the farm bloc failed to obtain enough strength to force a reHoall The house Immediately stood In recess subject to call What caused the trouble was a deficiency bill appropriating including to start hc new social security plan The house passed It and the senate add ed to it amendments directing the Commodity Credit corporation to lend 12 cents a pound on cotton and about 90 cents a bushel on wheat to farmers who wanted to hold their produce off the market AAA officials issued an order last week reducing the present 12cent cotton loan to 9 cents With an ad ditionr 1 subsidy to make up the dif crcnoe between the average market price and 12 cents They never had made loans on
