Ireland Fears
Future Attacks
As Riots Go On
Religious Strife Spreads
Throughout Irish Free
BELFAST, Northern Ireland, July
23. - (A) - Fears of a widespread
anti-Protestant attack in the Irish
Free State received fresh impetusnto-
day as houses in County Meath and
elsewhere were plastered with the slo-
gan, "Remember Belfast."
Religious strife, arising from the
Orangemen's celebration July 12 of
the anniversary of the Battle of the
Boyne, . spread extensively. Anti-
Catholic outbreaks occurred in Prot-
estant Ulster and anti-Protestant
demonstrations in the Catholic Free
State to the south.
This city, where the conflict orig-
inated, became quieter today, al-
though a 19-year-old girl, Mary Sun-
pingham, was wounded in the leg

Agitation arose for another strike

workers finally reached the shipyards

Clergymen exhorted thousands of

their support to the cause of peace,
and the workers consented to stay at
their posts.
Windows were smashed in several
sections of Ireland. Among the build-

A National Figure,
Johnson Is Still A
California Booster
WASHINGTON, July 23. - (P) -
Fiery and independent, Hiram War-
ren Johnson has become a national
figure, but he is still partial to his
native California. He likes to tell
about the view from Telegraph hill in
San Francisco, his home.
Born in Sacramento, September 2,
1866, Johnson was elected governor
on the Republican ticket in 1910, re-
elected in 1914 and sent to the senate
in 1917 by the state he has served
ever since.
The entire nation learned his name
during his campaign against entrance
of the United States into the World
Court. He was dubbed a "President
hater" because he could not see eye
to eye with Wilson, Harding, Coolidge
and Hoover. However, he supported
Roosevelt despite his party 'and in
turn was supported for re-election
last November by the Democrats.
Johnson's age and iron-gray hair
belie his vigor in debate on the sen-
ate floor. He speaks seldom, but is
always listened to. Sitting idly on
the Republican side of the senate,
he rests his chin on the heel of his
hand with his fingers over his mouth.
When speaking, he often makes a
hacking motion of the right hand for
This medium height senator who

tion, just "a lot of friends." He re-
ceives about 100 letters daily from

tion of his party. Coolidge took it

Thompson Faces Death Penalty,

CHICAGO, July 23. - (A') - Partial
discontinuance of work relief was ef-
fective in seven midwestern states to-
day as the Government sought to
bring farm jobs and workers together.
Most recent state to join the move-
ment to force unemployed to help in
the harvest fields was South Dakota,
where 19,000 family heads were
stricken from relief rolls as farmers
complained they could not hire men.
A "marked increase" in demand for
farm help was reported. by the Fed-
eral Department of Agriculture,
which announced a survey showed
harvest hands were offered a country-
wide average of $1.41 a day, with a
top of $2.25.
Improved crop conditions were cit-
ed as cause for the demand.
Relief clients contended low wages
for harvest work, compared with 40
cents an hour paid on Federal work
projects, prompted their disinclina-
tion to go to the fields.
Nebraska prepared to stop Federal
work relief allotments in 26 counties
and to reduce them by half in 15
others until assured that farmers had
hired the men they needed.
Illinois halted work relief in rural
areas. Iowa stopped aid for able-
bodied workers in nearly 20 counties
and advised them to go to the fields.
North Dakota stopped work on all but
specialized projects.
Kansas and Ohio both issued warn-
ings that refusal to take farm work
would bring denial of relief. Red-
wood County, Minn., cut off relief

down on jobs.

In his projected flight this year, he
said he will be accompanied by Ugo

Commander Pond said he will use

to accomplish the flight in 24 hours.
Nearly 40 sportsmen pilots were

Japan Apologizes
For Bullets Hiting
American School
SHANGHAI, July 23. -(P) - If the
American mission school of Huping
College at Yochow, Hunan province,
was struck by bullets from a Japanese
gunboat, it was unquestionably an
accident, Rear-Admiral Teijiro Sugi-
saka of the Japanese Yangtze patrol
said today.
Admiral Sugisaka said he was in-
formed of the incident only today
and instructed the Japanese resident
naval officer at Hankow to make a
full investigation and to express re-
grets to the American consul-general
if the Japanese navy was found to
be at fault.
The charge that a gunboat deliber-
ately bombarded the school because
of Japanese displeasure over anti-
Japanese sentiment expressed at a
YMCA conference there is "ridicu-
lous," Sugisaka asserted.
Bullets Possible
"Under no circumstances would we
consider such an act. Although I
have not yet received any details, it
is quite possible the school building
was struck by stray bullets during
anti-aircraft target practice.
"It is customary for gunboats to
fire at flares and it is conceivable
that in doing so projectiles dropped
into the school compound. If so, it is
extremely regrettable.
"As theaincident allegedly occurred
July 16 and our consul-general at
Hankow was not notified until July
22, it appears improbable that even
the missionaries took the matter very

Fish Debates
Of Legislators
Says Democratic Leaders
Are Doubly Impeachable
If Roosevelt Is
WASHINGTON, July 23. - (A') -
Rep. Hamilton Fish, Jr. (Rep.), New
York, said today that if President
Roosevelt is "impeachable," then
Democratic leaders in the House of
Representatives are doubly so.
He accused them of letting the
House "vote away its constitutional
functions until it had no more legis-
lative clothing left than Gandhi."
The statement by Fish recalled the
recent declaration by Rep. Bartrand
H. Snell (Rep.), New York, minority
leader, that President Roosevelt's ac-
tivities were approaching "'impeach-
able grounds." Snell accused the
President of being "inconsiderate" of
the Constitution."
Another development today was a
disclosure by authoritative sources
that Republican leaders of the House
have been arguing with one of their
members, seeking to disuade him
from submitting formal impeachment
charges against the President to the
House. The Republican chiefs de-
clined to name this member.
What Fish Said
Fish, mentioned by some of his col-
leagues as a possible Republican pres-
idential candidate next year, said:
"I'm not advocating impeachment
for the President, but if he is im-
peachable, then the Speaker of the
House and the Democratic leaders are
doubly to blame, doubly responsible
and doubly subject to impeachment.
"They have led the House into dele-
gating power after power to the Presi-
dent. The President demanded that
the State Department have the right
to form the nation's tariff policies; he
demanded ,in the $4,880,000,000 work-
relief bill, that he have the right to
control the purse strings.
"He got both --powers assigned to
Congress by the Constitution, and
the House leaders were responsible."
Just Like Gandhi
"It is inconceivale that Reed, Can-
non, Clark or Longworth (former
speakers) would have let the House
vote away its constitutional func-
tions until it had no more legislative
clothing left than Gandhi.
"The impeachment of President
Andrew Johnson was started, and
failed, because Congress tried to
usurp his powers by refusing to let
him remove a cabinet member. Now
things are at the other extreme, and
a supine and cowardly Congress is
voting all its legislative powers to the
Hope Is Held For
Mild Tax Measure
WASHINGTON, July 23.- (A') -
A conservative decision by the House
Ways and Means Committee Demo-
crats on a portion of the new tax
program lent some hope today to
those legislators who want to see pas-
sage of a comparatively mild measure.
The deision was made in regard
to inheritance taxes as the commit-
tee Democrats began shaping the tax
bill Monday in response to President
Roosevelt's recent message.
One suggestion before thescommit-
tee was to class inheritances as part
of a man's income and tax them at
the same rates that would apply if
they were income, but the committee-
men rejected this plan.
In secret session, they decided that
income and inheritances should be
taxed separately. The importance of
this is that rates are progressive so
that an income taxaver must pay
