National Committee Wants
Ten Mlliion Dollars

Desperate Efforts Are Being

Washing-ton, Sept. 2. Following
on the recent embassy of National
Chairman Cummings and bis aides J
to many States of the West it will j
be recalled Mr. Cummings went to
the White House and poured into!
the reluctant ear of the President a j
dismal tale about the condition of |
mind of the voters to the effect that :
they were disaffected toward the j
party in power, that they were hold- !
ins the Administration responsible,
for the blunders of the war period,
for extravagance, for high cost of j
living, and so on. It was set forth j
that the public was not overwhelm
ingly enthusiastic about the fact the 1
President traveled in state to Paris :
and elsewhere in Europe and ab
sented himself from business at j
home for about seven months,

Closely following the pessimistic |
election in the llelm District in!
Kentucky and the overturn of this |
District by the victory of King j
Swope, the Republican candidate, j
This development along with others i
which need not be enumerated in- i
tensified the thickness of the gloom I

ID. Jamieson, Director of Finance of
the Democratic National Committee,
, that he has begun for the Commit
! tee the task of raising between $5,-
(000,000 and $10,000,000 to elect a
Democratic President in 1920. Mr.
Jamieson will employ about 1,000
I persons and appeals for contribu
: tions will be sent out to millions of
( men and women.
; To indicate more clearly the ex
! tent of the alarm which is felt by
1 the Administration's political chief-
I tains and the remarkable nature of
I their effort by the unprecedented use
of funds to purchase an election it
should be added that the Democratic
Committee in addition to its other
liberal otlice room in Washington
has taken three entire floors of a
prominent office building on New
York Avenue within sight of the
Treasury and within hearing of the
White House. These offices are now
being fitted up and will be filled with
an army of employes.
Desperate efforts are being made
by the Democratic National Com
mittee to raise funds. Mr. Jamieson
states that there will be 12,000,000
women to be influenced in the next
campaign and he admits that the
cost has gone up.
It took $1,100,000 to elect Presi
dent Wilson and $2,500,000 to re
elect him. The present appeal of
the Democratic Director of Finance
would, therefore, indicate that the
longer the Democratic party re
mains in power the more expensive
it becomes for the party as well as
for the country at large.
Carnegie Inheritance
Tax About $7,000,000
. Xen York. Sept. 2.—About $7,000,000
of the $20,000,000 left by the late An
drew Carnegie will And its way to the
United States Treasury as inheritance
taxes, according to an estimate made
by tax experts here.
Some doubt regarding the income
tax bequests made to Premier Lloyd
George and other Britishers seems to
exist. It is pointed out that if the
principal from which the annuities
are paid is sent to England, there
will be, only the inheritance tax to pay
here, whereas, if the annuity is paid
from this side, the beneficiaries
abroad are subject to American in
come tax law.

| posts in the State will elect their
j delegates to the State convention.
I Each post is entitled to a delegate
! and an alternate, and an additional
| delegate and alternate for each one
I hundred members. Since its organi
| /.ation in the latter part of May the
; legion has grown with leaps and
I bounds, so that Pennsylvania stands
to-day the second in Importance in
j the States of the Union, being sur
i passed only by New York.
Tentative I'rogriini Announced
The tentative program for the con
\ention, as announced by Paul J. Mc-
Gahan, the State publicity officer, has
been arranged with the Idea of giv
ing the delegates the utmost free
dom of action. The morning of
Thursday, October 2, will be given
over tc registration and validation of
credentials. The first session of the
convention will be held in the after
noon. A chairman and a secretary
for the convention first will be chosen.
I Then the program for the convention
! will be adopted and the various com
| mittees named. An elaborate enter

I On the morning of Friday, October
3, there will be a meeting of the
I State executive committee and of the
other committees of the convention.
! In the afternoon these committees will
I report and their reports will be acted
| upon. That night there will be an-
I other entertainment.
| Final reports will be submitted by
I the committees on Saturday morning,

i lion of delegates, alternates and dele-
I gates at large to the National con
vention to be held at Minneapolis on
' November 10, 11 and 12.
Stntc Delegates Apportioned
I It has been officially announced
that Pennsylvania will be entitled to
four delegates and alternates to the
I National convention under the con
stitution and to one delegate and one
| alternate for each one thousand mem
! berships paid up thirty days before
the National convention. In addition
to these delegates and alternates au
| thorized by the constitution of the
American Legion, a number of dele
! gates-at-large equal to twice the
United States Senate and House of
Representatives representation, is au
thorized. But this latter class will
not have any vote at the National
convention. This insures, however,
that Pennsylvania will have one of
the principal delegates to the great
Minneapolis assemblage, where the
American Legion will officially be
launched as the great body of veter
ans of the war now reaching its con
The direct result of the State con
vention will be the elimination of
the volunteer workers who have car
ried the organization of the Ameri
can Legion forward in this State.
Their work having been completed
to the point of making the convention
possible, the first action will be to
turn the convention over to the dele
gates representing the membership
at large.
VYur Risk Insurance Favored
Each past during the present week
will receive a copy of a resolution
adopted by the National executive
committee on the- question of War
Risk insurance. This is being sent
out by G. Aertsen, Jr., the State sec
tetary. Each post is requested to
lake prompt action on this most im
portant subject and to communicate
with the Congressman and Senators
from Pennsylvania relative to it.
The letter is as follows:
There has been introduced in Con
gress a bill known as the Sweet bill,
H. R. 8288, which amends the War
Risk insurance act. This hill pro
poses four changes of major import
ance in the present law. These arc:
(1) An increase in the period of
automatic inturance. (This amend
ment automatically insures any per
■on who entered the service prior to
November 11, 1918, for 120 days after
entrance in tne active service).
(2) An increase in the basis of
awards in compensation cases of $6,7,
when disability is total and tempor
ary, and to SIOO when the disability
is total and permanent.
13) An increase in the class of
beneficiaries of insurance to include
uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews, broth
ers-in-law, sisters-in-law, and persons
in loco parentis.
(4) The payment of converted in
. urance, at the election of the insured,
either in one lump sum, or in 36 or
more instalments.
It is believed by the National execu
tive committee of the American Le
gion. that the proposed amendments
should pass and that In addition
thereto the law should he amended as
tl) To permits lump sum payments
lor term insurance as well as for eon
verted Insurance, and to place term
insurance exactly on the same basis,
as to payments, as converted insur
ance thus enabling a man who can
not now afford to convert his insur
ance to have the same advantage as
the man who is able to immediately
It is requested that each'local post
of the American Legion write its
Congressman and also its United
states Senator, urging the passage of
the Sweet bill and also urging that
the law be further amended so as to
place term insurance exactly on the
same basis, as to payments, as con
verted insurance.

Arrest Dealer in High Grade Liquor and Woman Who Was
in Automobile Containing 150 Quarts of Whisky; Col
ored Man Gives Evidence to Officers in
Slaying Case
Nashville, Tenn., Sept. 2.—Work
ing on the theory that Robin J. Coop
er, prominent attorney, whose body
was found in a creek near his home
Saturday was murdered by an illicit
liquor dealer, police last night arrest
ed J. E. Feuston, and Casey Jordan,
a woman, who are being questioned
in regard to the murder.
Both are being held without bail,
and are charged with violating the
Reed amendment. Feuston is also
accused of carrying a pistol.
The arrests indicated that the police
had abandoned abruptly the theory
on which they said they had built up
a case yesterday—that blackmailers
had killed the young lawyer— and
had returned to their original belief
that bootleggers had lured Cooper
from his home and put him to leath.
According to the police, Feuston is
a dealer in liquor of a high grade, and
Is thought to have made dealings
with members of the exclusive clubs.
When arrested Feuston and the wo
man were in an automobile contain
ing, the police say, 150 quarts of
Evidence that another automobile
was involved in the tragedy was giv
en the police by a negro farmer.' He
said he was driving his team home
Thursday night about 10 o'lock, the
hour fixed as the time for the murder,
when he saw some one slowly back
an automobile off the road into the
place where Cooper's automobile was
found 33 hours later.
Then a man leaped out of the ma
