The minority report denied the claim put forth In Chairman Lodge’s report that the peace conference still was in session and has power to bring the German representatives again to Paris, declaring that such power had been exhausted and that Germany “had closed the chapter by signing and ratifying the treaty."
"If the a/mended treaty is not signed by Germany.*’ the minority report added, "then it is not binding on her.”
The report mentioned twelve concessions the United States would lose by failure to ratify the treaty, these including industrial and economic advantages and agreements.
Reservations proposed by the majority the report said, were “for the purims** of destroying the league which had stood the test of worldwide criticism and unlimited attack.”

BOSTON, Sept. ll. The death today of a young woman, believed to be Miss Margaret Walsh, brought the number of last night’s riot victims to five. The young woman was shot during the disturbance in the south Boston district where the national guards today fired into a crowd. Another death occurred when Raymond Bayers, of Cambridge. tried to escape from the stat** guards who had rounded up a group of seventy-five participants in a dice game on Boston. Common.
Governor Collidge today wired the secretary of the navy a request that naval troops be held in readiness to supply additional troops for Boston. With six regiments of state guards under arms the governor had mobilized all the forces at his command.
Nearly a score of persons, including four women, were injured as a result of the activities of the state troops in policing the city last night. Success in putting down the rioting and suppressing the looting marked their efforts to a large degree, although in some sections the mobs w’ere not put under control.

The best fair ever held in Pontotoc county is now open at the fair grounds at Ada. The best exhibits ever collected in it his county are being shown to visitors, and the collection of these exhibitions represents a great deal of trouble and expense on the part of the fair management and of the different exhibitors.
The splendid array of livestock. * agricultural, and other exhibits, illustrates in a wonderful way the possibilities of Pontotoc county. It | is well for all citizens to visit the* fair and witness the fine products of ; the county for the present year. It twill be gratifying for them to understand the substantial progress made* by this county along the lines indicated by the.various exhibits.
The material prosperity of Ada as a city is closely joined with the development and prosperity of our livestock and agricultural interests. It therefore becomes the duty of Ada citizens to assist in every possible way to develop these interests and to encourage in every possible way those whose industry nas brought about the present development and who have taken the trouble to present their products at the county fair.
For tin* foregoing reasons we believe that every citizen of Ada should attend the fair as much as possible in order to lend encouragement, to whe management and exhibitors and to assist in making the present fair a pronounced success.
Now therefore, I. Gary Kitchens, Mayor of the City of Ada. do hereby proclaim Friday, September 12, as "Ada Day" at the county fair, and do urge every citizen of Ada to make a .special effort to leave his business and duties for a part of that day at least and visit the fair grounds to view the exhibits and lend assistance in making the fair a success. AU the citizens of Ada are respectfully urged to set. aside a part of "Ada Day” to the purpose of visiting the fair grounds.
