THOMAS LAWSON EXPOSE IZZLES victims were negroes persons and included in the record are three negro women' Sixty seven persons were lynched in 1915 13 of whom were white men In a statement presenting the re port Robert Moton president of the institute said: or more than one fourth of the total lynchings occurred in the State of Georgia Of those put to death 42 or 77 per cent of the total were charged with offenses other than assault The charges for which whites were lynched were: Murder 3 suspected of cutting a woman 1 (this was a Mexican) charge for which negroes were put to death were:

her son who in defense of his mother killed a man fatally wounding a man with whom he had quarreled speaking BRADSTREETS TELL WONDERUL 1916 The appearance of what seems to be a straggling nondescript of armed vessels some of them said to be dis guised reported by incoming vessels indicates another step in the program of defense against submarines which was one of the principal issues on which the Lloyd George government came into power Strict secrecy as to sailings the transfer of'vessels as fast as they are armed beyond the American standard to Canadian ports and the policing of the approaches to Halifax in the same fashion as the British coast appear to be the main reitures of this response to the appearance of the 53 on our shores It is evidently believed that when the winter storms are over other subma rines will be sent on a like errand and the Admiralty is getting ready It is not surprising that German offi circles in Washington are said to have been in the report that liners were tb be trans ferred to Halifax it may involve in Berlin the revision of some carefully iaid Springfield Republican Columbus Ohio January 4 In his message to the Eighty second Ohio General Assembly which convened Monday Governor Willis the retiring Governor recommended immediate investigation bf the high cost of liv ing in Ohio and as an aid to the solution of this problem suggested the establishment of a State Bureau of Markets under the administration of the State Board of Agriculture Such a bureau the Governor sug gested would be a permanent bureau for the prompt investigation of ab normal prices Recommending abolishment of use less offices and sinecures Governor Willis said: brief experience as a State official has convinced me that Ohio is over officered and over in spected and that the people and bus iness of Ohio are being inspected to Governor recommended more' funds for the care of the wards in State institutions MEETING BOARD SUPERVISORS $5 TO CITY CANDIDATES $5 TO COUNTY CANDIDATES $5 OR GENERAL COMPETITION IMPROVEMENTS ON THE WAVERLEY COMPLETED troublesome stocks finally market for foreign securities but in we definitely secured title to our po sition as a creditor nation loaned freely to the entire world and de spite hitherto unequaled purchases by us of belligerent securities (be came possessed of gold imports in a volume such as was never seen be fore To the spur of foreign war de mands represented by unprecedented demands for raw materials to feed our industrial machinery and general merchandise sold abroad was added a new and record breaking volume of imports largely of raw materials to feed our industrial machinery while at the same time purely domestic trade grew beyond the most san guine dreams of our merchants and manufacturers Quieted Down in Midyear A quieting down in midyear with attendant free predictions of the ter mination of war demand merely acted as a 'breathing spell before new and still larger demands were again met in the autumn and early winter enough cars labor or was a common description of trade and industry throughout many months Even toward the close of the year when nearly all lines were booked for nine months ahead and some iron and steel lines were sold well into 1918 when prices of com modities after rising to new heights had broken badly due largely to peace talk being injected into the situation there were but few signs of a let up in active buying or indi cations that the conservatism so long preached was really acting as a brake upon extraordinary purchasing Nineteen hundred and sixteen was a wonderful year but that character ization does only partial justice to this latest and greatest twelve months in the history is review of the 1916 rec ord of unprecedented prosperity It was said of 1915 that adjectives were lacking fitly to portray that progress So it may be said of 1916 in turn that comparatives fail to describe the repeated examples of high records set up in nearly all lines of trade and industry only to be displaced in turn and relegated to the rear by new and hitherto unheard of totals of indus trial production and trade volume of bank clearings and building expendi ture of transportation earnings on land and on water of exports and im port trade in merchandise in gold and silver of mineral output and ship construction of prices of all com modities and of high levels of wages paid in most industries and of divi dends paid by enterprises of all kinds I Many Records Broken It would be far easier in fact to single out the lines that did" not break records than to attempt to enu merate the vast mulittude of direc tions in which trade expanded indus try set up new milestones of prog ress and finance sought of exploitation In 1915 the bogy of liquidation of our own bonds held abroad was and we began to offer a Unprecedented Record of Trading and Prosperity Reviewed by inancial Agency $15 in Gold Goes Wednesday When The Exponent extended the contest a

the xvepuoncan party ana In state and national affairs he has i Been tne most prominent representa tive of the unprogressive unhumane 'and anti social policies of the ible He and Oliver made themselves and the state odiously conspicuous by casting the 1 only two votes from Northern Sen ators against the ederal Child La bor law and child labor is one of the 1 leading issues in the Speakership fight Philadelphia North American Washington January 4 Two con ferences Tuesday between Thomas Lawson and Representative Hen ry chairman of the House Rules Committee resulted irt an announce ment by Mr Henry that the Boston financier had been unable to furnish any names or other definite informa tion about the alleged leak ad vanbe of President peace note and that so far as he was con cerned the matter would be dropped no sensible said Mr statement ask me to trouble the committee with a meeting to chase a mirage And I must say that as far as this matter between Mr Lawson and myself is concerned it is ended Unable to'Give Names a thorough conference the al leged leak has been discussed by Mr Lawson and myself I have asked him for the names of those thought to be responsible for the so called leak between the State Department and Wall street give me single name He cannot even give me the names of those charged by him with cleaning up six ty millions of dollars in connection with the leak and is not able to fur nish me the name of even one of the Mr charges gained fur ther official attention Tuesday when Senator Stone Democrat spoke on the subject In the Senate Senator Stone rose to a question of personal privilege He said that confidential communications concerning the honor of the nation had fallen into improper hands but said he had no informa tion as to whether a occurred as recently reported If so he be lieved it would be tracable to de partmental employees it be true that any public offi cial has or did use any secret of con fidential information as said Senator Stone is an un speakable scoundrel If any man in legislative life if any Senator did it which I believe to be absolutely impossible he ought to be dismissed from his office or this body Confidence Betrayed do Senator Stone con tinued things have occurred in the departments which ought not to be possible I know that confidential communications with foreign gov ernments to the State Department have by some means found their way into hands of men not authorized to receive them These did not concern stock market speculation but did concern the honor of the nation How this has happened I do not know but it could have happened only through the instrumentality of employees I fear that this betrayal of public con fidence is in some way traceable to our civil Senator Stone then denounced Lawson for his recent declaration that members of Congress would shrink from an investigation into stock market despise' these sensational fakirs who are alwflyalking about public bodies and public hfeut he said "I am sorry that the nbsapers should take up the bellowing of this Upon leaving Mr office Lawson declared that he had given enough information to warrant any man in proceeding with an investigation of the entire stock exchange After his conference with Lawson Representative Henry reintroduced his bill of two years ago to prevent the use of mails telegraph and tele phone in furtherance of fraudulent and harmful transactions on stock exchange The bill was referred to committee The repair work which has been going on for some months at The Waverley Hotel was recently com pleted and the hotel is in a first class condition Among many other im provements all of the rooms have running water and several have pri vate baths orty five telephones are being
