King. Alphonso Is treading the path once famzliar to King Mwu- ue of Portugal, who showered good coin of the realm on stage beauties, so much of it in fact that his subjects rebelled and Manuel woke up one morning to find himself without a throne to sit on and a crown to put on his head. That's the way King Alphonso, the Spanish monarch. Is going, only he has gone Manuel about five or six better. Instead of having only one stage beauty, Alphonso has about five or six at a time. Queen With Babes. Meantime his wife. Queen Victoria. and the six children stay in the royal palace in Madrid wondering when the errant king is coming home. All Europe ts talking about the royal scandal, the way in which Al- phonso is behaving himself. The comic papers of France ridicule and roast him. It is in France that Al- phonso spends most of his time, at the fashionable seashore resort, Deau- rills. The reason he spends so much of his time the is because all the noted stage beauties, chorus girls, and a lot of women, whose respectability Is not a matter of overmuch concern to them. congregate at Deauville. Squanders Hm Money. There's hardly a good king In the whole European lot any more. but Alphonso is absolutely the worst one they still keep over here. Instead of attending to affairs of state he squma- tennis with the choms girls, or rather plays at It; he referees prize fights; he Judges beauty contests, and In a word, behaves himself Just exactly like a king ought not to behave. The taxpayers of Spain are begin. nlng to" growl about It. When their monarch gives a diamond brooch to one of hLs favorite stage beauties-- the taxpayers of hls country foot the bill. Besides they are getting pretty much ashamed of Alphonso. Rivers May Take a Hand. When the army of Spain revolted several weeks ago and Primo Rivers. telr leader, was given virtual ruler- ship of the country, Alphonso hurried to Madrid from the seashore, saw that Rivers was a ood marl to have charge of affairs, and then he went back to spend some more of the taxpayerS' money.

The federal government was grant- ed a review of its case against Roland R. Pothler, charged with the murder of Major Alexander P. Cronkhlte at Camp Lewis. Washington, during the W)rld war. Together with Rohert Rosenbluth, t'othler was indlcted In the Federal District Court for Western Washington. but the Ftrst Circuit Court of Appeals directed that the former be released on habeas corpus proceedings, and a United States com- missioner In New York refused to hold Rosenbluth. Both took the position that the Camp Lewis military reservation had not completely passed under the Juris- the case. The state courts denied that they had Jurisdiction. insisting that It was a matter for the federal courts. The whole question of the right of national hanks to establish bram'hes and the eontr.l of states over national banks was ordered opened.

You were obliged, as soon as the killing was accomplished, to stand up and wave your hands while you shouted as loud as you could.

The amount involved in the cases now pending is approximately $2,5<0,000,000 mostly arising out of the World war. Claims filed against all departments of the government, among which are a large number that never have reached the court, include the follow- ing: The War department, in which claimants have filed claims involving approximately $5,000,000,000; the bu- reau of internal revenue, which has before it claims for rebates and re- funds aggregating many mllliom: the shipping board, where tIae amount of cancellations alone amounted to over $850,030,000 ; claims for patent in- fringement estimated by the Depart- meat of Justice at $800,000,000; claims made by the railroads which as filed with the railway administration amount to approximately $2.250,000,- 000 ; claims proportionately large arise from the housing corporation, war risk bureaa, food and fuel administra- tions, and there are also e. large num- ber of claims of a miscellaneous char- acter. The variety of the claims is ahnosl unlimited. They include actions for requisitloulng of ships and railroads, transportation of troops, ammunition and supplies, Infringement of patents for high explosives, submarine boats and torpedoes, wireless and radio ap- paratus: contracts for anti-aircraft en- gines and guns, military and naval supplies and ammunition, appropria- tion of camp sites and naval bases, to- gether wlth contracts for manufactur- ing and acts of commandeering of al- most endless diversity.

Kwelcbow lies on the watershed be. tween the Yangtse and West rivers. process of Chinese absorption. Many of the strongholds have never been visited by white men and whole tribes do not know that the World war was fought. Occasional travelers have reported how some of the tribes thrash grain on the rooftops, as in the Holy Land; how other have great "'prayer flags" flying on fortified castles, and how quarrels are settled on horseback with blunderbusses, broadswords and bags of stones as weapons. The monkey the expedition will seek is the Rblnopithecus Brellchl, of which the only evidence available now is a skin. There has been speculation, the Geographic society says. regarding the possibility of this species being an animal described in a famous pass- age of Chinese llteratare, as follows : "Its nose is turned upward, ahd tile tall, very long and forked at the end ; He has a further distinction, as the United 8tat government stepped In and became his third ggardlan" elimi- nating the others. He Is one of a trio of young Kaws whose reatrictlous have been continued by the federal government so that property and money interests might be protected. Thompson is a college graduate who came into the limelight last spring by being the first member of the Kaw Indian tribe to become wealthy from oil money. He is a fellow tribesman of Senator Curtis of Kansas. The Discovery well in the Kaw In- dian country, at a point 20 miles northeast of Pones City, was drilled In by the Sapulpa Refining company January 13. Other wells have been brought in, with many additional wells drilling. The first thing that Thompson did. following the bringing in of his oll well, was to celebrate the event by become a business womam Thompson's land holdings mounted to only an 8aere tract in 1923. Re- cently Thompson, with the consent of his guardian, the United States, bought a quarter section tract, several miles southwest of his original holding, for $35.000. It adjoins one of Senator Curtis' quarter sections. It was thought necessary by the officials of Kay county and those of the Cnited States Indian department that Thompson; then not 21 years old. should have a guardian, and both acted. This was in February, a month after his oil discovery and in the same month as-his wedding. The county named a guardian and the In- dian agent of the Kaws named one. Now the United States has stepped in and continued restrictions of Thomp- son for a number of years, taking over all Jurisdiction of the young man ann his affairs. Uncle Sam HE American government, it has been made clear at the. White House, will not take any action based on the cha- otic political situation in Germany. President Cmltdge made It known that the United States would make no attempt to interfere with Ger- many's affairs nor to influence a de- cision for or against maintenance of a republican form of government or restoration of a monarchy, The attitude of this government, as set forth on the highest authority, will be determined by American treaty ob- ligatlon and the traditional policy of the United States. and neither in the treaty with Germany nor in the his- toric policy governing American rela- tions with foreign countrie is .there any obllption  Justification rot In- terference witt the establishment by any country of the form of govern- mnt onder which it eboo to live.
