Switzerland in february 1926. The president of this commission it is stated is to make preparations for a conference for disarmament which it is the announced purpose of the Council to All at an Early Date. A it is proposed that the deliberations of the commission shall be directed to such matters As the several factors upon which toe Power of a country in time of War depends whether limitation of the ultimatum War strength country is practical or whether disarmament should be confined to the peace strength alone the relative Adan Rand disadvantages of each of the various forms which reduction or limitation of armament May take in the Case of land sea or air forces the Standard of measurements of the armament of one country against the armament of another the possibility of ascertaining whether the armed Force of a country organized in a spirit of aggression or for purely defensive purpose the consideration of the principles upon which a scale of disarmament for various countries ran be drawn up and the factors which enter into the establishment of those principles such As communication resources geographical situation population the vulnerability of frontiers necessary delays in the transforming of peace armaments into War armaments criteria if any by which it May be possible to distinguish Between civil and military aircraft the military value of commercial fleets the relations Between regional Security and disarmament and Between regional Security and Dis armament and Between regional disarmament and general disarm rent. A the matters to be examined by the preparatory commission will it is stated touch upon All aspects of i he question of disarmament and Oklahoma City okla., Jan. 4. Map a the Osage murder mystery As dramatic As any created by a novel at a pen today seemed nearer a solution Federal and state officers working in unison were closing a net around suspected members of a murder ring that is believed to have been responsible for the deaths of nearly a score of Osage indians and White persons. Action was to be divided today Between Guthrie where a Federal grand jury is convening to consider the testimony of about 140 witnesses a and the Osage nation a a Home of the Osage indians where state officials Are expected to arrest several suspects. The Osage indians Are reputed to have the greatest per capita wealth of any group of any people in the world. It has Quot been indicated that the Federal officials will leave the prosecution of murder charges to the state confining their activities to the conspiracy aspects of the Case. The belief is that Many times the murders were the outgrowth of a conspiracy to gain Possession of the fortunes of the victims estimated to total $2,000,000. Although the most recent of the crimes was committed about three years ago none of the perpetrators has yet been brought to Justice. It appears that the solution of the Case would solve the dynamite no of the f. W. Smith Home in Fairfax three years ago. The Oklahoma City times has asserted that Dick Gregg inmate of the Federal prison at Leavenworth has confessed to knowledge of the crime. Smith his wife and Anna Brookshire a servant girl were killed by the explosion. Smith was a White Man and his wife an Indian a sister of Anna Brown whose immediate family either was killed or died under mysterious conditions.

Although Federal agents had to damage Europe a jewish Ghl has won affection of e Paris Jan. 4.�? apr Europe continues to be ravaged in a glowing degree from floods which Are complicated by gales. Central Europe is the principal sufferer. Communication is defective and the full extent of the disaster will not be known for some time. One report reaching London is the toll of dead has reached 1.000 in transylvanian. The flood Waters of Theiss River. Near the famous Tokay Vineyard Region in Eastern Hungary has caused immense floods. Thousands of villagers have been driven to the roofs of their houses. A number of persons who sought safety there have died from exposure. Regent Horthy and count Bethlen. The Premier Are visiting the most afflicted Points in a Power boat. In France and Belgium the optimism entertained has been damped by renewed rainfall. Most of the flood streams appear to have reached the Peak or Are about to do so. In Belgium the improved situation in the Meuse and Sara Bray valleys has been offset by the rising water in the districts of malines Mons and Flanders which previously had been spared. Along the Rhine in Germany the inundations Are said to be the worst experiences for More than Century. In Holland a bad situation exists in the provinces of Gelderland and Veryssel. Although the Rivers in England and Wales everywhere Are at freshet and Low lying areas Are flooded the damage done is far below that in various regions on the continent officers return Laredo tex., Jan. 4 map a Lieut.

London Jan. 4.�? apr at least three Points in the mystery surrounding Crown Prince Carol of Rumania and Bis relinquishment of his right to ascend the throne have been cleared up. Carol is in Milan. Also there is mme. Magda Lupe so Blue eyed red haired daughter of a jewish merchant of Jassy Rumania with whom Carol is on Friendly terms. A six Lambrino. Former inorganic wife of the Prince has re married. Carol gave a dinner to his entourage at a hotel last night. Mme. Lupesco was a guest. At her place at the table was a huge bouquet of White Flowers of the same kind that she threw into his automobile enclosing a love note which brought them together in the Bonds of Friendship. Prior to Carol s abdication Carol and mrs. Lupesco motored together daily but when the storm broke these pleasure rides ceased Carol remaining in seclusion but mme. Lupesco constantly appears. To a number of written questions sent in by the correspondent of the daily express Carol replied in writing that he had determined not to make any statement with regard to his renunciation. Bucharest advices say that both the King and Queen and the Cabi net Are reassuring the people that the abdication of Carol does not indicate a dynastic or political career. A dispatch from Budapest describes a woman who has visited Paris and Milan with Carol As the wife of a major. The Prince was ordered by the rumanian government to cease attentions to her but he is declared to have replied that he would rather give up the throne than acquiesce. Other advices Are that Princess Helen shortly will Start proceedings to divorce Carol the understanding in Athens us that Helen will remain at the rumanian court and devote her attention to Ber Little Sod. Michael who is to a Ako hts father s place As he successor of King Ferdinand. It comes to action the complicated news features will be More easily explained. The taxes which the estate seeks to recover were assessed by the Bureau of internal Revenue and were collected by j. W. Bailey who was then collector. Or. Bailey is defendant in the Case but of course he has Only a nominal connection with it he receipted Lor the taxes during the last year of his office holding. The facts on which the plaintiffs proceed Are substantially of use prior to june 1916 James w. Cannon was sales agent for 41 Cotton Mills of which number he had 13. After june 30 of that year he formed a partnership with Martin p. Glenn and j. Leslie of Philadelphia and new York. Or. Cannon had five eighths of the Stock in this co partnership and the associates three eighths. Or. Cannon assigned his share of the commissions to the trading and commission company of Maine. There were 12 shares of Stock of which he owned one and mrs. Cannon and their ten children the other la each. With this capital of $1,200 the corporation cleared $95,000 in four months. Later a supplementary arrangement was made by which or. Cannon received All the commissions of three of his Mills and the Cannon Mills the commissions for handling nine of the Mills output. Of course the controversy Here arising is whether the government which Laid this tremendous additional tax on the Cannon corporation was within its right in collecting this sum when the commissions actually did not go to the organizer of the company but to his individual family members. From Concord Kannapolis and other places where Cannon interests Are important stories of the Way this partnership has been working occasionally come to Raleigh. It is rather complicated. But the first suit brought was won by the plaintiffs. Leslie and Glenn recovered in the new York Federal courts their $423,000 assessed against the Cannon Mills. They won in the District court and the circuit court affirmed the judgment but the Money has not been turned Over. Cansler and Candler of Charlotte Pou and Pou of Raleigh and the Law firm of Charles e. Hughes May appear. Hughes rounds Schu Man and Dwight represented the plaintiffs in the new York Case. When David h. Blair was nominated for commissioner of Revenue senator Hiram Johnson of California made a vigorous attack on him and declared that the commissioner of Revenue would always be embarrassed by tax issues in his own household. Senator Johnson wrote letters to North Carolina people vehemently objecting to the confirmation of commissioner Blair. From time to time officials Here and elsewhere have been expecting that private interests would become so great that commissioner Blair would eventually find it Best to give his office up and transact his affairs As a private citizen. But they see nothing new in the proceedings Here. It has been known a Long time that this recovery would be sought and in the instant Case the Cannon interests proceeded slowly to get themselves within the Protection afforded by the statute of limitations.

This analysis shows that in 1921, 53.212 carloads of furniture were shipped of which 8,986 carloads or 16,9 percent were from the South. In 1924, 94,221 carloads of furniture were shipped of which 24,878 carloads or 264 per cent were from the South. The increase in the number of carloads for the country As a whole from 1921 to 1924, was 77 per cent whereas the increase for the South was 176 per cent. In other words the shipments from the South in 1924 were nearly three Coin times As much As in 1921, whereas.
