Questioned by the police. Dr. Shott declared he sad been deliver-ing Christmas pre! pots to a number of his patients a the time when Mise Griffith had been killed. Examination by the c ironer established that this had ocurred between I and 3 o’clock in tfae afternoon. The little Gardner girl. stoutly maintained to the authorities that she was in the doctor’s j company during those hours. Dr. Shott asserts the belief that Miss Griffith committed suicide. Bf th* AMOT la tod Pl MOUNT CLEMENS. Mich., Dec. 29.—Authorities <f MacComb county were today investigating a new angle of the slaying of J. S. Brown, son of a former Detroit millionaire, whose body was ffbund in his automobile on the road Wednesday night last. The new information was a statement by Miss Gladys Summitt, who came here last light from Battle Creek and gave tife officers a story involving a young woman, who until last Saturday lived in Battle Creek, and who, Miss Summitt has declared, had heed much in Brown’s company just prior to his death. The girl, whose nfime Miss Summitt gave to the officers, left Battle Creek early last Wednesday on her way to Mount Clemens, after borrowing a uniforfn from a soldier stationed at a nearby camp. She returned to Battle Creek yesterday afternoon, Miss Summitt states, attired in new and expensive clothing and with a large sum of money. Later when informed of Brown’s death, the statement says, the girl displayed unusual alarm, and inquired if her name was mentioned by the newspaper reporters. General Wood didn’t get across. but his friends hope to put him over Baltimore American. A Clarion Call To Women Elsewhere in this issue of the News is printed a call to the women of the state to attend a convention of women democratic voters of the state, to be held iii Oklahoma City on January 27, and the notice also explains that a county convention will be held in each countyseat in the state on the 17th of January to elect delegates to the state convention. This is all quite right and regular, and, being the chairman of a committee of women to organize Pontotoc county, I take this method of appealing to every' woman in the county who expects to vote the democratic ticket to make it a point to become interested in the matter at once, as the time is short Pontotoc county is entitled to twenty-four delegates. This does not mean that the delegation that will represent our county must necessarily all be from the countyseat. It is to be sincerely hoped that at this mass-meeting to be held in Ada on the 17th there will be two or more representatives from every" precinct in the county, especially do we need the ideas and support of the women from the farms. This is the first time in the history of the state or county that the women are to be called together for political reasons. The idea may not appeal to you in any way. It certainly does not appeal to me in any sense except that of duty. To some women the idea of the ballot is only a pleasant change in their monotonous way of passing the time, to others simply an interesting experiment, simply a change in their programs, but to the better element of women, especially the mothers it is a solemn duty—a sacred trust—and the\ take up this added burden in the same spirit in which they have shouldered many other propositions. Many women will see in the ballot an opportunity to do something to better the environment in which she is trying to raise her children and nake of them educated and intellectual citizens and will govern her efforts in this new advent into state politics from this viewpoint It is with this idea in view' that I wish to appeal to you to make up your mind at once which woman, or number of women, in your own neighborhood or town that you believe td be best fitted to represent us at the state convention on the 27th. If it is not possible for a delegation to attend the county convention at Ada on the 17th, then send in the names of some one from your district to be voted on at the mass-meeting. Care should be taken, however, in selecting women whom you believe could attend the convention at the capital, as we are entitled to 24 seats and Pontotoc county must be among those to make the best showing at the state meeting.

Manufacturers in many lines have business booked far ahead. The cotton trade, one of the basic British industries, is said to have all the orders it can fill for the next five years. Shipbuilders say they are in the saihe happy condition. They have y^i 1° h® Evinced that America wui be able to take away the former British supremacy in the carrying trade. They ba$e their confidence on the belief that while the British a##? noteafaring raC^’ the Apparently they belied' that American ships built in the war are destined to be bought eventually ny distinctly maritime nations. Their confidence, however, is not ironclad. Lord Inchcape told the shareholders of one great British steamship company tnpt, if the American * government turned over its ships to private owners, Great Britain need not be afraid, but if the American people were to be taxed to build up their mercantile marine, the outlook for the shipping industry in these islands was nothing but rosy. British bankers and merchants look forward to a great increase of business with South America in ia20. They expect to hold their prewar customers and to gain much of what Germany lost. They profess to discount the prospect that the United States will acquire control of the South American field. Many nations are anxious to buy coal from Great Britain. The decline in exchange rates had a depressing effect on American trade but exchange with France, Italy and smaller markets is favorable to Great Britain. Against these reasons for business confidence stand two handicaps In the form of financial and labor conditions. The national debt appears appalling to the British public, but optimists argue that it is smaller than was the debt after the Napoleonic wars, measured by the country’s wealth and potential producing power. The question of clearing the dec^s by some form of 4 capital levy is still at the front and may be one of the burning political questions of the year.    ' The nationalization of mines and railways is another British problem and with it are linked questions of hours and wages which confront all industries alike and which England shares wiht America. It has been said that Great Britain’s recovery after the Napoleonic wars was possible through underpaid labor but British employers do not expect this to be among the assets of the future. On the contrary, many industrial leaders say British industry is facing a question whether the steady increase in wages may not become a dangerous handicap in competition with other countries. Labor has other prospective benefits in the promise of Premier Lloyd George’s greai scheme for building comfortable worknjen’s homes throughout tha country, which is just beginnig to materialize, and in plans for insurance; againsty unemployment which hate not yet developed. The principle of the latter plan is that all mek out of work through no fault of %heir own shall be assured of a respectable living as a right, without any taint of pauperism. Ireland still is regarded as one of the government’s most difficult and threatening domestic problems. Early forecast**^ jie new Home Role hill meu fipfbifig but opposition from alf l#gb factions.
