The time was taken up with various ceremonies, and It was not until late afternoon that word was received that Senator Hefltn was at Toledo and had decided not to attend. Last week Governor Smith, against whom Senator Heflin has launched numerous attacks in public addresses, was asked to be a speaker but he 'im- mediately declined, saying he already had two speaking engagements and that was enough.

Plan War Upon Gem Smugglers "Diamond Squad" Formed In Customs Service to Halt Increasing Smuggl- ing of Precious Stones. WASHINGTON. July smuggling has grown to such amazing proportions that a special "diamond squad" has been formed by tha cus- toms service which Is expected to seize millions of dollars worth of cut stones this year, it was revealed today.

As the cus- toms rate on diamonds Is 20 per cent this promises a sizable reduction for those purchasers who manage to get their diamonds in through illicit chan- nels. While the names of the European "brokers" arc known to officials here the chief difficulty is in trying to apprehend the "carriers" who actually bring the diamonds into this country. As a rule the "brokers" refuse to re- veal the name of- the carriers even to the purchasers ot the diamonds. The great majority of the carriers are believed to be employes ot At- lantic liners who ply between Belgian and German New York. Even when, their Identity is known, It is a trying task for customs officials' to catch them "with the goods." In the past customs agents at American ports were instructed to watch for diamond smugglers along their other manifold duties. The special diamond squad was finally formed at. the Insistence of American Jewellers who pointed out that the honest dealer in -cut stones would eventually -be driven out of business unless the smugglers wjere 'curbed.

Society's Long Existence Due to "Human Appeal To Everybody True to He Says. Invite Rich and Poor To Join in Celebration Governor Makes No Men- tion of Politics in Inde- pendence Day Address at Tammany Gathering. NEW YORK, July to "A great, deal of very -caustic criticism" of Tammany he said he had heard Governor Alfred E. Smith lauded ,the patriotic principles ot the society of Tammany in an Independence Day ad- dress at Tammany Hall today and at- tributed the society's long existence to Its great -human appeal to everybody who is true to America." The Democratic candidate for tho presidency was the principal speaker at the annual Tammany celebration as he was later, in the evening, at a gath- ering of new voters at the city hall. Can anything live In ttols country 139 years that is not all ho asked in detailing the virtues ol Tam- many. He read a public announcement ot today's meeting in which "All citi- zens and lovers of Americanism" were ,tc> unlte ln tue celebration. This Invitation, he said, was In strict- est conformity with what the Declara- t on of Independence has to say about the equality of man.

We care not what his station in life may be, we caro noth- ing about his religious belief." At this point the audience broke Into applause, and the governor i mopped his flushed face. "We only want to know one thing" he continued, "And that Is that he la a lover of America and in sympathy with the alms and purposes of the so- ciety to perpetuate the memory of Jefferson, the memory of Washington, the signing of the Immortal document that gave America her freedom, "and that he stands behind the constitution that gives life and vitality to the- declaratlon."

He said the governor's reply to the prediction had been "I accept the nom- ination." "I have a distinct recollection of "Ehe incident." the governor responded, with a grin. "In the past five years I have been nominated' at least threa times in Tammany hall, I was nomi- nated at at least 200 dinners, J been nominated at weddings, at chris- tenings, at the laying of cornerstones, at the' breaking of ground lor new buildings, at the opening or dedicat- ing of new state edifices for various and sundry purposes, but la Recalls Tammany Growth The sentence was interrupted by a roar of applause, and the governor let it remain unfinished. He then spoke of the growth of the country since the Society of Tammany was organ- ized. "However." he said, "as I look back over the history of our country I am not so much Impressed by growth by power and by strength and wealth. I am Impressed by some other fact, and that is that with all the wealth, with all the growth and with all the power. fro-x every line and from every pags of history, you will never have the blush of shame that this country ever .waged a war of aggression." Because ot the country's- wealth and power, however, he said, It had been a beacon light for the down- trodden and poor ot every land and It had cared for them.

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
