EVEBY NOOK AND CORNER OF RICH COUNTY TWENTY-FIFT- RANDOLPH, RICH COUNTY, UfAH, SATURDAY, JULY 2, 1921. YEAR. H Uncle Joe 'COMPANY FORMED TO FACILI- TATE COMMERCE BETWEEN ' EUROPEAN NATIONS . Industrial and Banking Unite In Endeavor To Stimulate Trade and Return Shipping, In- terests Business To Normal Hamburg. It Is the purpose of the German shipping, industrial and banking interests here to take the Initiative in carrying on business with Russia. An important step has been taken by the organization of the German- Russian Transport company, in which f' A I , Cv ""t the soviet government holds a half interest and which will exercise general supervision of rail and water traffic between Germany and Russia. The new organization has only a capital of 100,000 marks, as at present it contemplates using only the service of German tiaffic experts who will serve the soviet government in an advisory capacity, as Russia, by the agreement, assumes the payment of all 'transportation and operating charges connected with the forwarding of commodities purchased for Russia to Germany. A leading member of the Warburg bankink house told the Associated Press Sunday that German commer-- ' cial Interests purposed to' take the Moscow regime as it Is. He said he did not look for the early downfall of Nilcolat Lenine and Leon Trotzky, and he believed their forced disappearance from the government would result in chaos. .The banker said be failed to understand why the United States ignored the soviet administration. We believe Russia Is becoming more liberal, and are not inclined to share the opinion prevailing In many quarters that the country Is being run by radicals,? he continued. The banker said he firmly believed that Hib'fask""of'',wlnniiig' back Russia could not be accomplished without active participation of German interests and technical skill. He reflected opinions expressed by ther leaders of Hamburgs commer-cia- l interests. At the office of the Hamburg-America- n line, which controls the other half interest in the new German-Russia- n Transport company, found a feeling of optimism on early prospects for an active resumption of trading between Germany and Russia. That the United States, by deferring action of recognizing Russia, was depriving itself of practical tages which should be seized immediately was the opinion expressed by one of the German Shipping leaders. He said the newly founded German-Russia- n Transport company only had the framework for a comprehensive forwarding service. The Hamburg-America- n line is placing its traffic experts at the disposal of the soviet government. They will work in conjunction with the soviet trade commission Recently established in Berlin. "All purchases are- to be made by the Russian government exclusively, pending the restoring of free trading. Four of the largest German locomotive builders are working on the first installment of engines ordered by the Russians, who have made an ample rdvance payment it is said. Among firms which have booked orders from Russia are the Knapps and and the Vulcan works. Although the Hamburg-America- n line is the only German concern represented in the new German-Russa- n Transport company, the latter, it was aid, would freely Invite competitive bids from v all German shipping lines DR.

He is also said to have confessed to falsifying the company books to the extent of $7500 at a laVr date. All of the plunder With the exception of about $2000 has been recovered. Detectives, Roy Larson and John Burbidge found $2000 of the stolen gold beneath the porch of Sharps home in Bountiful Thursday. I do not want to discuss the matter, said Sharp Friday. I will make a complete statement of how I handled the affair when company officials and the chief of police are present. Just now all I will say is that I took the money. , The robbery of the companys vault and safe, which took place January The 21, attracted much attention. vault was protected by a strong combination and the safe In its interior was protected by a time lock. On January 21 Sharp reported to the police and to his employers that on coming to work he discovered the vault and safe open and the gold missing. The proprietor of a rooming house above the bank said he had seen a man working about the vault the previous night, but believed him to be one of the employees and had not reported the matter to the police. Sharp was placed under arres a Short 'time" '.After the robbery upon suspicion of having committeed the crime, but stoutly declared his innocence. He Is a clean cut, intelligent looking youth and made a very favorable impression on all with whom he came in contact. No evidence having been discovered to connect him with the crime he was released. Eight thousand dollars-o- f the missing money was In gold. Several weeks after Sharps release, Chief of Police purbidge received an anonymous letter from Ogden saying that If he would search in a certain place in the Western Loan companys office he would find somethilig of interest. The chief followed instructions and turned up $4200 of the missing gold. P. W. Madsen, president of the company, had in the meantime reinstated Sharp and placed full trust and confidence in him as bookkeeper. On June 4 several false entries were discovered in the company books. It appeared as if someone had made the entries with the purpose of taking $7500 and covering the loss with fake entries. The police were informed and Chief of Detectives' Riley M. Beckstead ase signed Detectives Larson and to again engage in an investigation of the case. Suspicion pointed to Sharp. The bookkeeper left the Western Loan Company last Monday and secured a position with a local bank. He was confronted with the new evidence in the case and made a confession at once. He told the police where they might recover the gold at his hqme. Although he has been plac- Bur-dldg- SIMS PUBLICLY REPRIMANDED Secretary of Navy Takes Action and Denonces Naval Office ' Washington.

WRITTEN STATEMENT BEARING ON TALK MADE IN LONDON IS GIVEN SEC. OF U. S. NAVY Senator Wins Battle Against Admiral Sims Says Report or Speech Great Odda; Speech by ' Lloy , Sent Over By Cable Was Misquot " . George Was Influential Fac-- . ? In Many Places And Wrong ' .. tor (n Senator's Ffvor Impression Made Idaho ,ed An agreement has Washington been reached by the conferees on the naval appropriation bill paving the way for the passage of the Borah amendment for a conference on International curtalment of naval expansion. The house leaders, It is understood, have agreed to abandon their substithe sentute for the Borah proposal, " ate in turn yielding the elimination of nearly all the $98,000,000 increase in the naval appropriation made by the senate. Charges have been made that the substitute proposal was designed to hill the Borah amendment. Republican leaders In the house announced last week that they would press their substitute to a vote as an entirely separate resolution on Monday. When they began a canvas of the situation a they discovered that there was strong sentiment against their plan among the Republicans and that they would have to combat a healthy Insurgent move, The Ohio delegation, composed entirely of Republicans held a conference and decided to bolt, although there were differences as to the method of bolting. Some of the Ohioians announced that they would stand by the Borah amendment, while others wanted Representative Burton, one of the leading international authorities in congress, to draft a substitute. Mr. Burton drafted a substitute, but the Republican members of the foreign affairs committee turned it down. Then the lyisconsin delegation went on the rampage and decided, almost unanimously, to support the Borah" resolution. . , With this situation behind them, the house confrees went into the naval conference Tuesday In a badly weakened condition. The argument was made that dragging in -- the whole question of disarmament on land as well as on sea would Involve the question of cutting down naval expenditures In hopeless entanglement. On the other hand, it was pointed out that the United States, without waiting for action of other powers, has cut the size of its army to 150,000 men, leaving hardly enough for policing purposes. Another influential factor In the situation was the speech of Premier Lloyd George Monday, in which he expressed willingness on the part of the British government to enter Into a naval building holiday with the In this United States and Japan. connection, Senator Borah issued a statement, in which he declared that public sentiment In all three countries Is practically united in favor of cutting down naval' expenditures. The opportunity is here for the United States to lead the way, said Senator Borah. Washington. in a formal report, pointing out certain inaccuracies in the cabled reports, but retracing none of the statements made in his speech in London before the English-speakin- g union concerning Sinn Feiners in Ireland and technical Amercan citizens in the United States, Admiral Sims, Thursday, replied to Secretary Den-by- s demand for an explanation of his remarks on that occassion. Secretary Denby refused to comment on his interview with the Admiral or to make known in what degree the reports of the speech varied from what the Admiral actually said, nor would he give 'out the admirals statement. He said however, that he would reach a decision at an early date, and would then make public all the facts in the case. Admiral Sims denied the accounts, the secretary said. He said he had been Incorrectly quoted. I gave him a written memorandum seting forth these statements and asked him to inform me In writing wherein he was misquoted and to tell me. If he could, what he did say In that speech. I asked him to give me an early reply. My memorandum was an official communication to Admiral Sims in the form of an order, Sims reported at the department-a- t 9:30 o'clock Thursday and in a interview with the secretary received from him a formal letter to which he submitted a reply in writing before leaving the department about an houre later. Although the admiral would not permit himself to be interviewd his friends insist that he retraced nothing and explalnd only certain inaccuracies occuring in the reports of his speech In the American press, which is some papers gave rise to the Impression that what the admiral said of Sinn Fein activities at Queenstown during the war applied to all in the United States at the present time. Tills says his friends, he never meant and did not say. His report to the secretary of the navy was based on the stenographic reports of his words in the London papers and his own recollection and that of others present of what he said, the speech having been made without preparation and without notes. two-minu- Irish-America- Clash Reported In China Canton, China.
