Mcduffie stumbled into Providence Hospital Here Early yesterday morning and told a loosely connected Story of How three sailors had invited him into a House in the Southwest Section of town about four squares from the Capitol and had dragged him. At the Hospital to pretended to think he was not seriously injured. An examination disclosed a heavy loss of blood and a Butcher like operation. His clothes his brother informed police officers today were not Cut. Early today Mcduffie told visitors to the Hospital there his condition is regarded As serious that he left his Home shortly before Midnight to go out and get some food. He described a visit to a cafe and of afterwards meeting the sailors. He says that he went into a House to take a drink largely because the men were service men and he was a service Man. He did not know any one of the three. He remembers nothing according to the Story he tells after taking a drink with the three men. It is an entirely different Story which the police have picked up bit by bit. Mcduffie s wife and children have recently gone to North Carolina. He says that they went there on account of his wife a health. In the statement he made he expressed a fear that he would lose his place at the White House and be without Money when Christmas came. He appeared much concerned about his family. Police investigation do not believe the Story the White House policeman tells they have information which leads them to believe that the operation was performed by one or More mulatto men.

He has a brother on the Washington police Force. The absence from he City of congressman William Cicero Hammer who represents the county from which the police Brothers come and who is a member of the District committee of the House moved other North Carolina members to take an interest in the Case.

Dec. 4.�? apr in political circles there seems to be no doubt that the government s proposed Law which Calls for inflation of the currency by 7.500,000.000 francs and fresh taxation of from Twenty to one Hundred percent soon will be an accomplished fact. The Bill yesterday successfully weathered the storm in the chamber of deputies and last night it was taken up by the finance committee of the Senate which accepted it in full and will recommend that Ute Senate take favourable action upon it. After a sleepless night and Day m. Briand appeared before the finance commission and issued an ultimatum similar to that Given by him in the chamber of deputies wednesday evening in effect that if the Hill was not adopted As it stood a no government was previously in commute numerous modifications to the Bill had been discussed and inserted in it but when the Premier had spoken the members of the committee yielded and under their recommendation it is virtually certain that the Senate will adopt the measure. The upper chamber will begin discussion of it. This afternoon and while its safety apparently is secure it perhaps will not go through without first being strenuously debated pro and con. With passage in the Senate m. Briand a troubles by no Means will be Over. Next week he will have to defend in the chamber minister of finance Lou Cheur a big financial Reform plan which will provide for redemption of Frances floating debt. This measure is quite distinct from that voted in the chamber yesterday which was an emergency Bill to empty coffers of the Treasury. If. Is Likely however to retain and make permanent some of Tho temporary tax increases contained in the inflation Bill and will replace the Pamleye capital Levy plan which died with the downfall of pain level a ministry.

Prea Siun that they Are most Hospit Able to the australian ballot proposal of Max Gardner the school proposals of Josiah William Bailey and the economies of governor Angus w. Mclean. They do not allow one to get the impression that they Are for Max Gardner for governor in 192s. President r. W. H. Stone of Guilford has talked considerable progressive speech against Gardner. Legend has it that when Gardner delivered on the protected ballot Josiah William Bailey of Raleigh uttered an unctuous amen. Not so with or. Stone. The Guilford Man did not like the Gardner associations in business. The Union has a rather ancient anti Gardner slant. The Shelby Man did not answer the Farmer labor questionnaire in 1920. Opinions differ As to the result of that refusal. It helped and it Hurt. But the Farmers Union never was regarded enough to do any candidate political damage. Ond line democrats who came to Raleigh say that the membership of the Union is largely Republican and that unions attitude on anything does not count. Its attendance now is rarely Large. Its tendency is regarded political. But president Stone is generally regular. He was made a director of the North Carolina Railroad by governor Morrison but in the 1924 Campaign or. Stone supported j. W. Bailey. Or. Stone is regarded a Democrat. His predecessor or. H. Q. Alexander turned out last year to be a la Fol letter. But. Or. Stone will not Bolt. He goes into the democratic contests and stands by the nominee. The unionists held executive sessions yesterday. They discussed the schools and resolved to make inquiry into the Cost of maintaining them. It is understood unofficially that in time the Union will Frame another questionnaire and or. Gardner will have another Chance to put himself on record. The Farmers mean to ask him something about his business and political alliances so they say.

Several Days ago the Enterprise carried a news Story Republican leaders in the Senate still faced an Uncertain situation in their efforts to have the party conference tomorrow recognize without Issue the republicanism of senator elect Lafollette of Wisconsin. Senator Butler of Massachusetts chairman of the Republican National committee is one of a number of senators apparently not yet not fringed that the plan of senator Curtis of Kansas the majority floor Leader and other party leaders to treat tin Wisconsin senator As a party regular is warranted by his speeches in his recent Campaign. Senator Lafollette whose Campaign utterances Are regarded by gome senators As constituting attacks on the Republican party has declined to indicate whether he proposes to accept the invitation u attend the conference tomorrow. At the session ahead the question of amendment of the Senate rules to prevent filibusters is one tha will probably at least occupy Many hours of debate and vice president Dawes already is on the ground prepared to carry Forward his fight for such a change.

House Republican leaders were perfecting plans today to Hare the House get Down to work on the tax reduction Bill immediately after the Reading of the president s message on the second Day. The program for the opening Day Calls for organization and the receipt of the report on the tax Bill.
