Committee Refuses to Permit Ninne-
sota Representative to Read.
Statement ,
Washington, Dec. 14.-Representa-
tive Keller, of Minnesota, refused late
today to 9articipate further in the
hearing before the house judiciary
'committee on the impeachment charg-
es against Attorney-General Daugher-
ty. Characterizing the hearings as a
"comic opera perfornance" he declar-
ed he would be untrue to his respon-
sibility as a member of the house if
he assisted further in "a bare-faced
attempt to whitewash Harry M.
Immediately after he announced his
withdrawal, the committee in. open
session and without leaving its place
voted to go on with the hearings, to
subpoena Mr. Keller and question him
as to the basis of his charges of high
crimes and misdemeanors against the
attorney-general. Later he was sum-
moned formally by the house ser-
geant-at-arms to appear before the
committee at 10:30 o'clock tomorrow.
This turn in the proceedings came
with dramatic suddenness and was at-
tended by an uproar seldom witnessed
in a congressional committee room.
After absenting himself much of the
day; Mr. Keller appeared with a type
written statement and announced that
he desired to read it to the commit-
tee. He was refused the opportunity
but later made public his statement,
which set forth in detail his reasons
for refusing to go on, and embodied
a demand that the committee favora-
bly report his resolution to the
house so that he might present his
evidence "to an unbiased committee
in the proper way."
"I reiterate now," the statement
said, "that I am in possession of ev-
idence ample to prove Harry M.
Daugherty guilty of all the high
crimes and misdemeanors with which
I have charged him."

Contrasts State's Luxury BIl of
$240,000,000 with Sum


of Agreement Among Allies

Prevents Commerelal
(By Associated Press)
Washington, Dec. 14.-Information
reaching . the American government
through trade channels, it was said to-
day, tends to bear out the statement
made by Bonar Law that an economic
collapse is threatening Germany. Inj
fact Germany seems to be approach-I
ing the point where she will be una-1
ble ,to import food in sufficient quan-
tities to feed her people. No estimate
was made ,however, as to when her
food supply would be exhausted.
Offcials SilentI
So far as the allied debt situation
was concerned officials maintained si-1
deice. The position of the United{
States, howfver, has been repeatedly
stated as one holding the debt ques-
tion to be distinct' from reparations.
Germany. normally produces only
about three-fourths of the food she
requires and the information received
here indicates that she is now two,
million tons, behind on her normal an-
nual import of cereals alone. The
credit situation was said to indicate
that there was little if any moneyl
tvailable to buy the extra food needed
roni the outside.
Rparation the Cause
The whole situation was declared to'
be based upon the reparation prob- ?
lem, Lack of an agreement by the{
allied powers as to the amount Ger-
many will eventually have to pay andf
how she will pay it was said to have
slackened . the whole of commercial
Germany with the result that unem-I
ployment has markedly increased and
those who have money are participat-
ing in the "flight of the mark".
