Without Presence Of Samuel
Escort Is In Danger Of


(By Associated Press)
SPOKANE, Wash., Nov. 8.-Queen
Marie of Roumania, and her entour-
age traveled southeastward through
Montana today, beaning aboard herl
special train further threatenings of
the discord which marked her visit to
the Pacific northwest last week.
After stops at Glacier National park
and Billings, her route lay towards
Caspar, Wyoming, where she is to be
greeted tomorrow by another woman
ruler, Gov. Nelli Taylor Ross, of
Wyoming. Governor Ross is to ac-
company her to Denver, where she is
due to arrive on Wednesday. ,
Threaten Disagreement
Without the presence of Samuel
Hill, personal friend of Marie since
pre-war days, millionaire road builder
and creater of the Mary Hill museum,
for whose dedication the Queen de-I
clared last week she had made the
trip to Washington, and minus that of
J. B. Ayres, representative of the Ford
Motor company, the royal party today
was still threatened with disagree-
ment among its personnel.
Mr. Hill, who joined the train at
Spokane last Tuesday evening and
left it Saturday night at Seattle, dis-
agreed so markedly with Maj. Stan-{
ley Washburn, special aide to the'
Queen, that an open breach between
them developed at Portland Thursday1
Involve ]ay Birkhead
The latest complications involved
Miss May Birkhead of New. York and
Paris, press agent for Miss Loie Fuller,
former dancer and close personal
friend of Queen Marie. A reported
statement by Miss Birkhead to another1
member of the party that Madame
Lahovarie, lady-in-waiting to the,
Queen, is identified with a Bucharest;
political group not in sympathy with
the present Roumanian government,
was the subject of questioning by Col.
John H. Carroll, official host to Queen;
Marie, and by Major Washburn. '
Miss Birkhead suffered a nervoust
collapse aboard the train today, and'
was under the care of the Queen's1
nurse. Colonel Carroll announced
that it was undecided whether she!
would remain on the train or be left
in a hospital enroute.

Editor's note: This is the fourth of a
series ciinterviews with Uiversity authori.
ties on the crime situation in the Unite('
Copyiight 19i6 by The Michigan
"In my experience I have fount'
that jurymen are willing to sit on all
kinds of criminal cases, regardless of
their seriousness"- so believes Clara-
mon L. Pray, clerk of the Washtenaw
county circuit court. Mr. Pray said
that his experience seemed to reverse
the popular conception that most citi-
zens are averse to judging cases where
severe penalties are involved.
"Only one or two a year don't like
to serve on even high criminal cases,"
the local clerk stated in an interview.
Most of the men and women drawn to
I serve base their request for being ex-
cused from duty on business reasons.
Farmers he classified as a group gen-
erally to be found on late fall term
panels, due to the lull in the amount
of agricultural work to be done.
"What do you think of the efficiency
of women on criminal juries?" the,
reporter asked.
"The policy of drawing women on
the jury has a tendency to raise the
standard of its work. That has been
proven by experience in this county,"
was the reply. "Women are as good
as men in this capacity; in fact, they
take all their cases more seriously
and are willing to sit in judgment on
the most serious criminal offenses."
Leaving the subject of the general
character of men and women servingI
on juries, the interviewer asked as to1
the main defect of the system today.
"There isn't any real main trouble
with the jury system," Mr. Pray de-
clared. "However, the present organi-,

,ation allows too many challenges in
a criminal case."
Twelve jurymen are picked out of a
box containing 30 names, he explained.
no the ordinary criminal trial, the at-
orneys for the defense are allowed
Wve challenges without cause to the
prosecution's four. When life im-
prisonment is the penalty, 30 pre-
emptory challenges are allowed the
lefense and 15 for the prosecution, in
addition to an unlimited number for
"The many challenges allowed gives
the criminal too much liberty," it was
asserted. "In my way of thinking, it
gives the co-respondent too much of
a chance to pick men that would suit
their particular case."
A remedy suggested by Mr. Pray
would limit the number of challenges
in criminal trials to the preemptory
challenges without any additional be-
ing allowed for cause. This would
eliminate the long delays and ex-
pense involved in the selection of a
jury and would prevent unscrupulous
lawyers from prolonging the trial to
the benefit of their clients. "My ex-
perience has been that the first jury
drawn has been as good as the last
jury accepted," he concluded.
Abrogation Of Chinese-Belgian Pactr
Is First In Series Of Treaties
Dealing With 15 Nations
(By Associated Press)
PEKING, Nov. 8.-China's abroga-
tion last Saturday of the Chinese- I
Belgian treaty of 1865 may become of
world wide importance. It is the first
cancellation of one of a series of
treaties that concerned the relations,
of 15 nations with China. The treaty
was abrogated by China after Belgium
had delayed negotiations of a newj
treaty based on equality and recipro-
city, and had proposed reference of
the question to the international court
at the Hague.
Chinese officials pointed out today
to newspaper representatives that
China had been unable to obtain
treaty action by the various powers
on her note of June 24, 1925, in which
China said that although she joined
the victorious allied powers in the
World war, her own international
status had remained "unimproved and
is in some respects even inferior to!
that of the defeated nations."
LONDON, Nov. 8.-China hasn't a
legal leg to stand on in its dramatic
abrogation of the trade treaty of
1865 with Belgium, according to re-
sponsible British opinion.

In l1ith Division Where The Candidate
Was Reported With Only One
Vote le Received 41
(By Associated Press)
PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 8.-The en-
tire election board of one division and
the Democratic inspector of another,
where no votes were credited to Wil-
liam B. Wilson, Democratic candidate
for United States senator, in the un-
official returns of last Tuesday's elec-f
tion, have been ordered to appear be-1
fore the election court tomorrow to
explain discrepancies as shown by the1
official count.(
The official tabulation showed that(
Wilson had received 35 votes in the1
14th division, 24th ward, and Con-
gressman William S. Vare, his suc-
cessful Republican opponent, 61. Int
the unofficial count election night, the{
Vare figures were the same, but Wil-
son was not credited with any votes.
Other Discrepancies
Another of similar discrepancies,
were noted by the special election'
cqurt in the 44 divisions in which Wil-
son was given a zero in the unofficial
count and another where he was
credited with only one or two votes
against several hundred for Vare.
In the 15th division of the 34th
ward and in the 6th of the 36th,1
where the Democratic senatorial can-
didate was credited with only one
vote in the unofficial returns, it was
shown that he had received 41 and 251

he said.
