Information received by the op- eratives tended to show that Huck- ins had represented himself to in- vestors as being in the "cigar busH ness." Huckins was subsequently j charged with using the mails to de- fraud but at his hearing the fed- eral prosecutor failed to prove that the defendant was not engaged in a cigar business.

The four men left Valbuena aero- drome, Mexico City, in a single mo- tored cabin ship at a. m., yes- terday, apparently crashing a half hour or so later at Pcna Del Monte ranch, near Villa Carbon, in the mountainous country on the rim of the valley of Mexico. Death Instantaneous The plane was destroyed. Posi- tion of the bodies indicated all had died instantly. Cause of the crash was undetermined but airways offi- cials said exceptionally bad flying weather prevailed, with heavy fog, and believed possibly the craft lost its way in the mist.

Blaine read from the "agreement" that when was raised, Meuse, Myrick and Mrs. Darden were to receive ten per cent of it. Agreement Means Nothing "I'm telling you the agreement means Arnold insisted.

This resolution was adopted in the conference room in the basement of Marshfield's First National Bank, only after Assemblyman E. M. Row- lands, Cambria, had insisted that the group omit from the resolution ref- erence to "this Wisconsin in favor of "these chains." i Condemn Further Taxes The conference went on record "in condemnation of the policy which foists further property taxes upon the home and farm owner and furth- er goes on record to endorse the principle of paying in accordance with ability to pay and in favor of legislation to increase the yield of the income tax and render unneces- sary the levying of any state tax on property."

Reaffirm Power Plan Faith The Progressives under the chair- manship of Alvin C. Reis, Madison, floor leader of the assembly, reaf- firmed their "faith in the soundness and advisibility of the power plan for which the group fought in the 1019 session." It was further resolv- ed "that this Progressive conference pledge its untiring- efforts to clean- ing out those stalwart members of the senate who caused the defeat of this program."

JBrookhart Tells Of 'Booze Washington, Nov. tails of the celebrated dinner to members of congress at which he said liquor was served were given to the senate today by Senator Brookhart of Iowa, who accompan- panied his disclosures with a demand for the resignation of Secretary Mellon; a suggestion that someone like Major Smedlcy D. Butler be given the dry enforcement task, and that a drive be made against the "big fellow" in the bootlegging world. The lowan, whose remarks wcre listened to by an expectant chamber and galleries crowded with curious spectators, did not directly accuse any member of congress of having partaken of liquor at the party and he complimented President Hoover, Vice President Curtis and Sir Esme Howard, the British ambassador, on their enforcement elands.
