It was explained that the Sea Servlce
Bureau was a departmont ol the Unit?
ed States Shipping Board, createcr for
the purpose of recruiting and train
ing men for thc American merchant
marine. It has mainly served as a re
cruiting offsce for both government and
privately owned vessel*. The opera
tors are opposed to its abolishment be
cause it gives men, they &ay, not mem?
bers of uniona a chance to get a job.
The owners also say, and this was ad
mitted by Mr. Furuseth, that most of
the American workers are recruited
through this bureau.
Section 2 rcfers to the provision *hat
75 per cent of the crew of any vessel
entering an American port must under
stand the language of the ship's of
ficers. Mr. Furuseth insists that two
thirds of the vessels entering Ameri?
can ports are violating this rule.
Section 14 refers to life-saving ap
pliances, which the union men insist

of ocean-going steamships, for the pro

The wage committee of the operators
replied to these demands that, as to
the abolition of the Sea Service Bureau,
it was up to the United States Ship?
ping Board. The points referring to
enforcement of sections 13, 14 and 2 of
the seamen's act must be referred to
the Department of Commerce, which
has jurisdiction in the matter. With
regard to the demand for preference in
employinent for union men, the ship
I owners were entirely opposed to such j
j a proposition, because, they asserted,
it would involve discrimination in em?
ployinent and might involve discrimi?
nation against young American seamen
! in favor of foreigners.
The meeting of the Ship Owners As
sociation, which followed the confer
ence with the firemen, was presided
over by H. H. Raymond, its president,
who is head of the Clyde and Mallory
lines. The chairman of the wage
committee was Captain Eugene E.

he would do no spying against his

of the will of his fatherlnnd evidently

porntion Counael Fertig predicted the
telephone company had not yetfiniahed
rntsing ratea, and that another advance
of nbout $5,000,000 migbt be cxpeeted.
Mr. Fertig said that it cost Chicago
$200,000 and MinnoBota $150,000 for
the same cxpert work, and in this
state it cost Syraeuae $20,000 and Buf
falo $25,000 for a much amaller amount
of work. Tho first thing to be done,
he aaid, was to make an exhauative ex
amination and appraisal of the tele?
phone company'a property, which
would take at least four or five months
and maybe longer.
Mr. Fertig also declared that, In his
opinion, the increaae in rates should
be placed on long distanco calls and
not on local calls. Attention was called
to the fact that the engaging of out
of-town experts was in violation of
the charter, unless such expert8 could
not be found in this city. Mr. Fertig
explained that the experts could not
be found in this city or in the state.

Good advertising is an economical method of

Senator Calder, of New York, sup

Thla is the first of the more im
portant Federal appointmenta and an
nouncementa of others are expected
to be made in a few days. F. J. H.
Kracke, of Brooklyn, former Public
Service Commiasioner, is said to be
slated for Appraiser of the Port
Thomaa W. Whittle, former Park Com
missioner, is expected to be named
Surveyor of the Port. There is as
yet no agreement on United States
District Attorney to succeed Francis
C. Caffey. The last named place is
fllled on the recommendation of Samuel
S. Xoenig, chairman of the Republican
County Committee of New York.
Mr. Aldridge, "Uncle George," as
the Monroe County Republicans call
him, has been Republican ieader in
his home county for n quarter of a
century. He was born in Michigan
City, Ind., in 1866. He was Mayor of
Rochester in 1894, State Superintend
ent of Public Works in 1895 and chair?
man of the New York State Railroad
Commission in 1905. At the Chicago
convention last year Mr. Aldridge and
his fellow townsman, County Clerk
James H. Hotchkiss, voted for Senator
HaTding on every ballot. Since then
Aldridge has been called the original
Harding man of New York State.
A statement was issued by Mr. New
ton from his home at Bayside, L. I.,
last night in which he said that the
President'a action suited his personal
convenience, Mr. Newton said he had
arranged to enter the banking firm of
Kardos & Burke, at 32 Broadway, and
that his resignation had been sent to
the White House some days ago.
"For eight years as Assistant Sec?
retary of the Treaaury and as Col- i
lector of the Port I have endeavored i
to give honest, vntelligent and non- i
