Hill, newly-appointed pardon attorney. It will be the policy of his office, Mr. Hill said Monday, to go “very | slow” in those cases. He said that | many of the applications coming to I him are from persons convicted of ; that offense. As a rule. Mr. Hill said, applications from persons convicted of misdemeanors will be referred to circuit courts that have authority to act. Details of minor offenses, he said, are more readily available to and better known by the officials of the trial courts. Mr. Hill declared he was somewhat dismayed by the volume of correspondence necessary to be disposed of. For several months prior to his appointment, he pointed out, A. W. Garnett acted both as pardon attorney and secretary to the governor. “While Mr. Garnett did everything possible to keep abreast of both positions,” Mr. Hill said, “it was too much for one man.” IL S. Supreme Court Action Taken in Hawk's Nest Development I LABOR IN STATE WILL ASK LAWS Old-Age Pension, Jobless Insurance, NKA Act Are Urged by Federation WASHINGTON. Jan. 14 (AP).— Gasoline filling stations were held today by the supreme court to be subject to the West Virginia graduated chain store tax. The decision delivered by Justice Card'ozo, was 5 to 4. Those dissenting were Justices Van De-Vanter, McReynolds, Sutherland and Butler. A, three-judge federal district court had ruled the stations were not liable to the tax and it ordered $240,173 refunded to the Standard Oil Company of New Jersey. The company had paid this amount on its 1.003 stations in the state in 1933. The state insisted the act was sufficiently broad in its application to Mercantile establishments to include filling stations.

WASHINGTON. Jan. 14    (AP).— West Virginia and three private companies were directed today by the supreme court to show by April I why the United States should not be permitted to file suit against them to test whether the federal or state governments had jurisdiction over hydroelectric developments on New and Kanawha rivers. The United States, through the power commission, has insisted for years the federal government has jurisdiction over all navigable rivers Th New-Kana Glen Ferris, W. Va., and the Union Carbide & Carbon corporation of New York city, were included. Attorney General Cummings, in asking the court to permit filing of the suit, asserted the federal government had exclusive jurisdiction over the two rivers. The United States complained that ! West Virginia refused to recognize its j authority and was licensing power de-i velopments. j It protested particularly that the I Electro-Metallureical company, owned I bv Union Carbide and Carbon, is constructing a hydro-electric power project at Hawk’s Nest, on New river, un-| der authority from West Virginia. The I work was begun, it said, by the New-Kanawha company, also owned bv the I Union Carbide & Carbon, in January. 1930.

VICTORY FOR GERMANY IN THE SAAR CONCEDED Legislature to Get Down lo Business After It Completes Staffs A committee of 16 senators and delegates to draft liquor control legislation was proposed in the house Monday. Action on the proposal was postponed until Tuesday. The senate recessed after meeting to consider attaches. tion and prevent monopoly. But the same ground did not exist, it insisted, in the filling station field. It contended that privately-owned stations in competition with those owned and operated by refiners obtained their supplies from refiners and were materially aided financially by refiners in conducting their business. The Indiana law to compel chain stores to pay more for operating than independent firms was upheld on October 12. 1931. in a 5 to 4 decision by the supreme court.

Four Are Held For Harboring Nelson Reading of committee lists by the presiding officers and consideration of proposed revised rules for both senate and house of delegates were ex-j pected to constitute the main business I at the legislative sessions which con-! vened Monday afternoon. Revision of the rules was to be con-j sidered Monday afternoon by the house before the speaker announced the committee assignments. Several changes in the old rules were under consideration, one of the most important relating to the introduction of bills. Under the proposed rule, a delegate would be required to file a bill in triplicate with the clerk of the house the day before its introduction and reading. The lawmakers returned to the legislative halls, after a three-day recess, prepared to go forward with Governor Kump’s program and a mass of other | proposals which are expected to keep them busy throughout the remainder I the of 60-day regular session. Announcement of committee assign-I merits was looked for in each house soon after convening. After the committees are named the senate and house will be ready for business. Some bills may be introduced Monday I afternoon. i Assignments of attaches to their duties also was expected to be a part of the program in each house Monday j afternoon. Rule Changes Asked j Changes in the rules which govern proceedings in the legislature are to be proposed for the purpose of speed-| mg up work. Speaker John J. Pelter. | of the house, said the changes are | modelled after those in effect in the , national house of representatives. He 1 i felt sure, he said, that the delegates] would approve the revised rules be- ] cause of the saving of time they will bring. One of tile proposed rule changes is to do away with the read- j , mg of bills at the time they are intro- ; I duced. I Several bills embodying recommen- ’ s dations made by Governor Rump are j I understood to have been completed j | and will be introduced in both houses as soon as further studies have been j made. Delegate E. E. Righter, of Harrison j county, has announced that he is preparing a resolution for introduction in the house, which will be intended to encourage industries to come to West Virginia. The resolution would propose lowering or elimination of tax upon new industries for a certain period of time. “The future of West Virginia depends upon its industrial progress,’* Mr. Righter said. “We must not drive industry from the state. On the contrary, we must invite new industries.” Governor Rump, in his message last Wednesday, told the lawmakers that I wage-paving industries should be invited to the state. Reenactment of the land relief measure was to be asked of the legis-: lature Monday by the state auditor. Under the old act. Auditor Edgar B. ! Sims said, owners of land delinquent Hauptmann Nervous, Grows More Haggard FLEMINGTON. N. J., Jan. 14 (AP).—Bruno Richard Hauptmann's guards said today that under the strain of his trial for life, he has developed a hesitancy in his speech, almost a stutter. With half the state’s evidence in the Lindbergh case presented against him, they said he is showing increasing nervousness from daily court appearances and the accusations of the prosecution. The pallor of his face and the shadows under his eyes are deeper and more accentuated than at any time during the 116 days that he had been confined. '-In contrast to the first few days of the trial, when the testimony of he state’s star witnesses left him unmoved, Hauptmann has grown taut during presentation of the handwriting evidence. After hours of close attention in court, he was restless in his Hunterdon county jail cell during the week-end recess, resorting frequently to a rapid pacing of the bull pen. In his marches to and from court, he has dropped his confident air and has begun to hurry, his head lowered, and almost dragging his guards along behind him. He now eats sparingly, jail officials said, but he still retains the habit he formed soon after his arrival at Flemington—eating light lunches at odd times of day and night.

Higginbotham told the court, before his sentence was passed, that he had previously been sentenced to 20 years on an armed robbery charge but that he was paroled after serving five and a half years.

The national resources board disclosed this today in recommending the appropriation of $171,531,000 for the completion of standard surveying and mapping of the whole country over a 10-year period. The cost of such mapping, the board said, would amount to 8 cents an acre. It would provide a base map the entire arca of the country, showing every stream, hill, valley, shore and lake—invaluable in computing and developing the country’s natural resources aud perhaps very useful in the event of war. The federal government’s mapping activities have been carried on by the geological survey, the coast and geo- Some of the maps made 40 or 50 years ago are now inadequate, the board said, the methods and scales used in those days not serving present needs. The board said that, in all, 26 per cent of the area of continental United States, exclusive of Alaska, is at present adequately mapped. Another 24 per cent is listed as inadequately mapped. The remaining 50 per cent —about 1,500,000 square miles—is unmapped. The maps covering West Virginia are on a scale of one inch to one mile. The state ranking to West Virginia in the adequacy of mapping is Delaware, which is listed as being adequately mapped in whole except for a tiny stretch of its shore.

Associated Press Copyright FLEMINGTON, N. J., Jan. 14.— Bruno Richard Hauptmann today was identified by a surprise witness as a man who shadowed Dr. John F. (Jafsie) Condon in the Bronx prior to the payment of $50,-000 Lindhergh ransom. The witness was Miss Hildegard Olga Alexander, a resident of the Bronx. She said she saw Hauptmann watching Dr. Condon in a telegraph office in the waiting room of the Fordham station of the New York Central railroad. She fixed the time as sometime between the time that she learned Dr. Condon was the ransom intermediary and the time it w’as announced the money had been paid. “Who else wras in this station besides you and Dr. Condon?” A prosecutor asked her. “I saw’ a man looking at Dr. Condon,” she said. She explained the man was IO to 15 feet away, and said she saw him again a few evenings later. “Was there anybody else in that station besides Dr. Condon and this man and yourself?” “There may have been but J didn’t notice anyone particularly.” “Who was the man you saw in that station watching Dr. Condon on this night in March and whom you saw a few nights afterward walking down Fordham road?” Names Hauptmann Hauptmann turned a slight red. Miss Alexander said she wras 26 years old and described herself as a salesgirl and dress model. She made a chic appearance on the stand. She testified her attention was attracted to the man she identified as Hauptmann in the telegraph office by “the fact he was very obviously watching him (Dr. Condon), very significantly.” When Edw’ard J. Reilly, chief of defense counsel, cross-examined her she slightly embarrassed the state by testifying she had no escort the night she saw’ Hauptmann and Dr. Condon. When the question was asked Attorney General David T. Wilentz offered to furnish the name of the escort to the defense. “The state would have furnished us with the name of a non-existent, fictitious person,” Reilly complained. Wilentz said he had been misinformed. Miss Alexander’s testimony was as follows: Q. How long have you lived in the Bronx. A. All my life. Q. Do you know’ Dr. Condon. A. Yes. Q. Did you see Dr. Condon in the month of March, 1932? A. I did. Knew Condon Before I She said she had kno zn Dr. Condon before the ransom wras paid. ; Q. Where did you see him? A.

Mrs. Hauptmann grew pale and Hauptmann turned slightly red as the witness identified the prisoner. She told the attorney general that she paid particular attention to the incident because of the manner of ‘Hauotmann.” Q. What was the other person doing? A. He was watching him (Jafsie). Q. What was the position of the man in relation to Dr. Condon? , A, The man was in back of him diagonally in back of him.
