Widow Of Late Jes' S ith Describes
"Deal" at 1920 Republican
Washington, March 22.-(BY AP)-
Roxie Stinson today gave the Daugher-
ty investigating committee another
long chapter of her amazing story, in-
cluding a description of a "dual" at
the 1920 Republican convention to.
nominate Harding and details of four
whiskey "deals" in which she said
Mr. Daugherty was an influential fac-
She also struck back at Mr. Daugh-
erty for his charges that she had at-
tempted to blackmail him as a price
for her silence and had registered at
a Cleveland hotel with a man named
A. L. Fink. Both charges constitut-
ed a "beautiful frameup", Miss Stin-
son declared in a sobbing statement
of vehement denial and lengthy ex-
The convention "deal" she said,
was related often to her by the late
Jesse Smith, her late husband and
constant companion of Mr. Daugher-
ty. She said she was told of a prom-
ise of a cabinet position to Jake
Hamon, former oil operator, and of
"strong arm" methods employed by
Daugherty in the famous early con-
ference of Republican leadersat Chl-
scago, when they got behind Mr. Hard-
ing for the nomination.
No specific whiskey "deals" wereI
cited by Miss Stinson, but she said
Smith ha4 told her of them and had j
said that Daugherty's influence was

The Week's News
In Brief
Temporarily casting aside partisan
questions, the Senate passed by a vote
of 63 to 7 a, resolution favoring a con-
stitutional amendment which would
provide that the President and Con-
gress take office in the January hol-
lowing their election. Under the pres-
ent system, a president doesn't take
office until 4 months after he is elect-
ed, and a new congress doesn't con-
vene until 13 months later.
The drawbacks in the present sys-
tem are manifest. The, expression of
public opinion is delayed for months.
In England, and practically all pro-
gressive governments, it is only a
matter of weeks.
