They were not long In learning that the preBldent, aftor Ills press conference, signed the Migar con- trol bill and planned to do the Maine, with the tax tomorrow. There, was divided opinion on hlii reduction of tho sugar tariff hy half a cent a pound. There was nothing substantially new In the presidential stands on debt H and Hllver.

Writing Silver Hill The silver case remained one of waiting for putting Into hill form the tentatively agreed declaration of policy for nationalization of the metal, and to set an objective of having a quarter of the curren- cy based on the metal. The presi- dent wants discretion left to him In' e'ffoctlng a broadening of bl- metallsni. Incidentally, he legislat- ion at thlH session to control oil production. To the NUA. trade commission and Justice department he sent the voluminous Darrow report con- cerning monopoly anil the NUA. The three agencies presumably are. to report back to him about it he- font publication. Among other happenings of the that attracted above the ordl- notice. Secretary Hull en- dorsed proposals for it congress- ional study of the advisability of trading war debt concessions for new supplies of tin. President Green of the Ameri- can Federation of Labor advocated the Lal'ollette public works bill. He said unem- ployment estimates for April showed still out of work. The president told western senators that Intensls of wool growers would be carefully pro- tected In the use of proposed power for him to make tariff-trade deals abroad.

The well has attracted much at- tention since It was drilled In last Sunday and flowed 700 barrels of oil In 42 hours. Caving from IfiO feet of open hole Is blamed for the bridge which blocked the flow. When the bridge was knocked out of the way, enough gas pressure had ac- cumulated to hurl the bailer against the crown block and spray oil over the derrick.

The court declared nil prorat- lon orders made by thn corporat- ion commission prior to April 10, are void. It granted a writ preventing the commission from proceeding to punish alleged vio- lators of the old orders. The far-reaching decision was handed down In the suit of the H. P. Wllcox Oil and Gas Co. against the commission. The com- pany Instituted the suit when served with an order to file dully reports of production under the old proratlon regulations. The new proratlon law under which the commission Is now operating was effective April 10, 1933. and the opinion does not apply to subse- quent orders. Gross production taxes paid to the Oklahoma tax commission, In many Instances anonymously, dis- closed that about 10.000.000 bar- rels of oil were run from the Okla- homa City field In excess of al lowables under the old proratlon set-up. The opinion has no bearing on the authority of the tax cotnmts slon to proceed with Its Inquiries on payment of gross production taxes on local oil production. lilisby Dissents Justice Monroe Osborn announc- ed the majority opinion In which seven other members of the court j concurred. Justice Orel Busby dis- sented. Osborn announced from the bench that the old proratlon or- ders were declared void, "because of jurisdiction on defects." His Ifi-page written opinion dwelt at length on alleged errors of the commission In falling to give prop- er notice of Its proration hearings and In falling to establish the market demand for oil under prop- er rules. Chairman Paul Walker of the corporation commission declared: "Now we've to begin our work all over again." He appeared elat- ed, however, over a portion of the opinion stating the writ granted Is not Intended as a check on the .commission's inquisitorial powers, I The opinion pointed out that [the law gives the commission "full authority to require production of I books, records, etc. in any proper i proceeding." Can Denuitiil ItepoHs t "I don't know what the major- ity of the commission will want to do, but I am glad the court recog- nizes our constitutional powers to proceed with the Investigation of oil runs. I don't know what good It will do, for the writ prevents us from taking any action to punish violators of the old prorat- lon orders, but It gives us a lever to demand reports from all com- panies operating In the city Walker added. The chairman Intimated that he will ask other commissioners to join In demanding reports as a means of checking on the comp- anies which exceeded their allow- ables. READY FOR "FIGHT OF HIS LIFE' Federal Circuit Judge Issues Habeas Corpus; Will Be Heard Tomorrow BEWlsfdW Aged Prisoner Deeply ned But Takes ment Calmly CHICAGO. May Will M. Sparks of the U. S. cir- cuit court of appeals granted' a habeas corpus writ for Samuel Insull this afternoon and agreed to hear a petition at a. m. tomorrow for the reduction of his bond. The petition, signed by Insull himself In the county Jail hospital, was presented by his attorney, Floyd E. Thompson, after another federal Judge had refused an In- formal motion to trim tho heaviest bond ever required In a Chicago federal court. Thompson said he argue that which Insull can furnish.
