(BV Associaed Press)
Swift action was promised by the
justice department today on the
charges that an Indiana member
of Congress had accepted money
from four postmasters to obtain
their appointments.
Attorney General Mitchell said
the facts as submitted by the
postoffice department were now
in the hands of the criminal divi-
sir on, and thifthe normal course
were followed they would be for-
warded shortly to the United States
Attorney at Indianapolis to be laid
before a grand jury.
Remains Unnamed.
The congressman involved re-
mained officially unnamed. All four
postmasters lived in the district of
Representative Rowbottom, defeat-
ed by a Democratic opponent in the
November elections, but neither

division would say he was impli-

ten days the inquiry turned up
what the postoflice departnent
termed "evidence so conclusive in
its character that these postmasters

Facts Just Received.
The attorney general said full
facts in the case had been received
by the justice department only this
morning and that it was too early
to determine whether federal agents
should be sent for additional evi-
dence. The district attorney at In-

said, has such agents at his com-

Mitchell frowned upon the sug-
gestion made earlier in the day
that a special prosecuting attorney
handle the case. It had been point-
ed out that the local prosecuting
attorney was in one sense a politi-
cal appointee, and that he might be
relieved of possible embarrassment
if a special prosecutor should later
be sent out. The attorney general
indicated none would be sent unless
a request was made.
Complete Withdrawal of Marines
Insisted Upon by Central
American Insurgents.
(By Associated Press)

MEXICO CITY, Jan. 6.-Repre-
sentatives of Augustino Sandino,
Nicaraguan insurgent chief, today
made public -a letter from Sandino,
said to have been written at his
headquarters, El Chipoton, and.
smuggled into Mexico by way of
San Salvador, in which he says:
"In order to save Nicaragua it is
necessary to destroy it.
"We have sent final orders to
burn the cities of our republic, be-
cause if the invading assassin, des-
troying our national autonomy, is
going to rob us ofnour homeland,
at least he will have to rebuild it
over the ashes of our bodies.
Jose Constantino Gonzales, who
calls himself secretary in Mexico
to Sandino, also made public a
telegram which he said had been
sent to Senators King and Borah
in Washington. The telegram said:
