After First Ballot.:
VERSAILLES, May 13-(P)-Paul

feating Aristide Briand, the pre-
election favorite.
He won on the second ballot with
504 votes against 334 for Senator

Church Burning in Small Towns
Continues; Martial Law
for Nation Seen.
MADRID, May 13.-(P)-Follow-
ing upon further anti-clerical riots I
in Spain today, in spite of the
strict watch of soldiery, the gov-
ernment tonight decreed the con-
fiscation of the private property of
former King Alfonso, pending an
investigation. Provisional governors
were commanded to use the strict-
est measures to restore order.
Meanwhile, Cardinal Primate Se-
gura, Catholic, whose pastoral let-
ters created a stir over a week ago,
had crossed the Spanish border and
was on his way through France,
presumably on a journey to Rome,
Churches, Houses Sacked.
Several more churches and Cath-
I olic religious houses were burned
and sacked in provincial cities to-
day, in spite of the fact martial
law had been declared in most of
the larger centers.
After a five-hour session the cab-
inet decided to place the minister
of the interior, Maura, in full
charge of maintenance of public
order and empowered him to take
steps to meet. the.situation. Maura
announced that he was prepared to
declare martial law throughout
Spain if necessary.
The cabinet demanded the resig-
nation of the provincial governors
at Alicante, Cadiz, Cordova, and
Malaga for alleged laxity.
Maura informed proprietors of
Madrid newspapers the govern-
ment was considering the establish-
ment of censorship unless "injuri-
ous" stories were eliminated and
no photographs of the recent dis-
orders published.I
Farmers Heavily Armed.
At Seville the Captain general
was informed many farmers were
heavily armed, saying they had
heard of a "communist revolt" and
were prepared to fight.
A nation-wide check-up of police
forces, civil guards and provincial
governors was ordered by the cabi-
net at tonight's session.
The action resulted from the
government's belief that some of
these officials have not been stern
enough in dealing with the situa-
tion.
Twen~y-nine chiefsg of police or
their lieutenantslseveral officers of
the civil guards, and one secretary
of provincial government were dis-
charged for incompetency.

Briand, repudiated by some on
whose support he had counted,
withdrew after the first ballot and
the Socialist support swung to Mar-
raud.
Premier Pierre Laval gave Dou-
mer official notice of his election,
and the 74-year-old president-elect
responded briefly with praise for
Briand's foreign policy and ex-
pressed hope they would be con-
tinued.
It was noz so certain, however,
that Briand, eleven times premier
and for the past seven years for-
eign minister, would remain in the
cabinet.
Briand's defeat in the first ballot
had been unexpected. Political ex-
perts had predicted that the over-
whelming vote by which the Cham-
ber sustained his foreign policies
last week would be repeated in the
presidential election.
Tradition may have influenced
the result to some extent.
