C., June Morgan-Guggenheim sjndi- cate was today frustrated in its attempt to grab millions of dollars' of coal lands in Alaska when Commissioner Fred Dennett, of the general land office, ordered the cancellation of the Cunningham- Guggenheim coal claims in Alaska.

Sensational disclosures of names prominent Chicago men discussed by Edward Hines and Clarence Funk as identified with the Lorimer corrup- tion fund were made by Herman H.

General Sherwood had attended the state G. A. R encampment at Lorain and then went to his home in Toledo. He came hore at the request of a number of veterans of the Home, call- ed upon General Burnett Sunday morn- ning and in the afternoon addressed an audience of In his ad- dress he avoided politics and personal references and devoted his attentions j_to the activities of certain G, A.

General Sherwood says his pension bill, known as house bill No. 1, will be reported out by the house commit- tee with a recommendation and placed on the calendar so that it will be taken up early in the regular session convening in December. He it would be idle to attempt to put the bill through the present session as was assured by Chairman McCumher, of the senate pensions committee that no pension legislation will be at- tempted at this session.
