"Washington.—Elmer Dover, formei
Assistant Secretary of the Treasury,
upon his return to Washington from
a visit to Mexico, declared that
politically that country is in the best
condition in several years. His visit
was the fourth since General Obre-
gon became President two years ago.
"In my judgment," Mr. Dover said,
"President Obregon has stabilized his
Government. The new Mexican
Congress is 90 per cent in accord
with Obregon, so that he now has
the legislative strength for the de-
velopment of his policies.
"I predict that the Mexican Con-

obstacles to recognition by the

FIND ALIVE AND DEAD
BODIES OF MINERS
Rescuers Handicapped by Volume of
Gas in the Mine.
Spangler, Pa.—Between fifty and
sixty miners lost their lives in an
explosition in Reilly mine of . the
Reilly Coal Company near here. Ex-
ploration of the workins by trained
rescuers are being conducted. None
of the dead has been brought to the
surface at present.
Thirty-one blanched survivors-
most of them young men—lay on a
double >row of cots in the Miners'
Hospital here, anxiously watching the
entrance to the big room. They were
the known survivors of the ninety-
four miners who went into the mine
a few minutes before a terrific explo-
sion. Some of them were badly
"There are dead miners strewn all
along the entries down there/ said
J. J. Bourquin, leader of the United
States Bureau of Mines rescue crew,
as he came from the shaft of the
Reilly mine near here.
"We are doing nothing to bring
out the dead," he continued. "We
only stopped with them long enough
to see that the spark of life had fled
and then moved on in search of the
living. Quite a bit of mine remains
to be explored, but I can say if there
are any more live men in there, it
wont' take us long to get to them."
Engineer Bourquin and his men
spent the greater part of the after-
noon i nthe workings. They were
equipped with oxygen helmets, and,
so eager were they to force their
way through the gas, they made
seven trips without pausing to have
the gas tanks recharged.
Behind a brattice hastily construct-,
ed by the entombeid miners to shut
out the deadly after-damp from the
heading where they had taken refuge,
the rescuers found four men alive and

of the Shipping Board, Julius H.
Barnes, president of the chamber,
proposes that the Government with-
draw its boats on grounds privately-

Rangers Sent to Three Town#.
Austin, Texas.—State( rangers were
dispatched to three Texas towns—
Raymondville and Lyford, Willlacy
County, and George West, Live Oak
County—to be on duty during the

That Place, Also in Path of Tornado,
Sustains Property Loss of Half
Drumwright, Ok.—Five persons are
known to have been killed in a tor-
nado which ripped through part of
the Cushing oil field leveling dwell-
ings, hundreds of oil derricks and
other oil field equipment. Several
scores of persons were reported in-
jured, (but only a small list of in-
jured could be compiled.
The storm came in a northeasterly
direction. It missed the town of
Drumwright. All the damage report-
ed was to houses and property on
the oil leases.
The known dead: Joe Jennings,
Mrs. Joe Jennings, fourteen-year-old
son of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Jennings;

Several automobiles filled with
physicians departed at once for the
Btorm area from here and Ollton.
The total darkness which covered
the oil field as a result of the de-
struction of electric lighting equip-
ment is hindering the work of rescue
More than thirty houses of oil
workers on the Roxana} 'Praiiie, Pure

oil rigs and pumping machinery
strewn about for miles.
The Jennings family was living on
the Roxana lease. No trace of their
house has ibeen found. Their bodies
were picked up a quarter of a mile
A heavy downpour set in imme-
diately after the tornado passed,
adding to the difficulty of bringing
in the injured.
Two of the injured brought here
were identified as Frank Hurst and

LLOYD GEORGE IS FOR
THE MIDDLE CLASS
fn London Address He Declares
Against Socialism and Conserva-
London.—Former Prime Minister
Lloyd George in, delivering his first
popular address in London since the
fall of the coalition Cabinet, made
a strong defense of the late Govern-
ment's policy and pleaded for a vigo-
rous middle course.
The former Premier spoke in a
motion picture theatre to a crowd of
3,000 persons, all of whom had been
aible to make their way into the
building out of a throng of some
"When my friend, Mr. Bonar Law,
the new Prime Minister, left the
wretched coalition Cabinet," said Mr.
Lloyd George, "the British sovereign
would buy in the United States only
13s and 2d worth of merchandise;
when Mr. Bonar Law managed at the
Carlton Club to overthrow that Cabi-
net the British sovereign would buy
18s 5d worth of merchandise."
Speaking of the danger from ex-
treme Socialism and from like con-
servatism, Mr. Lloyd George laid
aside his notes, leaned backward in
characteristic fashion, and declared:
"When you get home to your dic-
tionaries turn to the letter "R," read
down to the word 'reaction,' and
then read a very little further and
come to the word 'revolution.' They
come very close together, almost in
the same column, but remember re-
action comes first."
The ex-Premier warned his hearers
to remember at the coming elections
that they would choose a Parliament
for five years and he asked if they
wanted a Parliament which would
sleep politically and remain quiescent,
unmindful of the many difficulties
which were bound to lie ahead.

CALL NEW TURKISH
Assembly to Name Caliphs and Holds
Government Is Vested in the
Constantinople.-—The Angora as-
sembly decided unanimously that it
is invested with sovereign rights and
that the Turkish Nationalist Govern-
ment is the keystone of the Caliphate
and the newspapers carry these
"Ottoman Empire collapsed. In its
place there has arisen new national
Turkish State—Sultanate abolished."
The decision of the assembly was
announced by a salute of 101 guns.
Immediately the soldiers and civil-
ians began to celebrate to the blare
of military bands and the bright
flares of torchbearers.
Two resolutions were unanimously
adopted y the assembly. The first
said that by virtue of organic statute
and representation, sovereign rights
had been vested in an inalienable
and indivisible manner in the moral
personnel of the Angora Assembly,
which was the only emanation of the
Nation. The second resolution de-
clared the Caliphate was vested in
the imperial family of the O^man
dynasty, but that the Turkish the
The selection of the Caliphs is to
be made by the grand National As-
sembly of Turkey, which will choose
that member of the imperial family.
The resolution provides who is the
best-nistructed, the best-educated, the
most honest and the wisest.
London.—One effect of the action
of the Turkish Nationalist Govern-
ment in Angora in relation to the

GIANT MONOPLANE IS
With 10,800 Pounds Weight T-2 Is
Making Non-Stop Flight for
San Diego, Cal.—Two daring army
Lieutenants—John A. MacReady and
Oakley Kelly—have taken the air to
span the American Continent in
In a specially constructed army
plane, the T-2, the flyers took off
from the army aviation field here a
few minutes before 6 a. m. Friday.
At 10:10 o'clock they had bridged
the'distance between San Diego and,
Pratt, Kan., after plunging through
the air wastes high above Southern
Arizone and New Mexico. From
Vaughn, N. M., to Dalhart, Texas,
the plane flew at the rate of 102
miles an hour, according to reports
from the points along the route.
The take-off was acclaimed as a
masterly piece of airmanship. Lieu-
tenant Kelly handled the wheel, as
he did on the morning of Oct. 5,
when the two aviators took the air
on a flight which resulted in a dura-
tion record of thirty-five hours eigh-
teen minutes and thirty seconds.
When the big machine left the
ground, however, it weighed 10,800
pounds, or 500 pbunds more than
when it started on Oct. 5. Both
aviators expressed confidence.
In may ways the flight is a re-
markable experiment. In the first
place the machine is equipped with
but one motor—a Liberty. It car-
ried 725 gallons of gasoline, twenty-
five gallons of water and thirty-one
gallons of oil when it took off.
^ ne aviators planned to reach Mir.
