when volunteer firemen reached the

the flames with chemical tanks. The
fire was not controlled until a hose line
had been laid to a nearby hydrant and

Prices of Food
Chucks and Plates of Beef
Reach New Low Level
With No Buyers; House?
wives Want Dearer Cuts
Old Potatoes $1.25 Barrel
Week Is Marked by Unusual
Demand for Fruits and
Melons ; Lemons Climb
Hot weather ?prevailing during tho
last week has caused a marked re?
duction In food prices, according to a
report published yesterday by the
State Division of Foods and Markets.
The report says:
"The live stock market in the last
week has been demoralized on account
of hot weather and a very light de?
mand. Calves were held ever frort
day to day until as many as 1,200 were
on the market at one time, with prac?
tically no buyers. Most of the liberal
receipts of country dressed calves
were delivered in bad condition due
to the extreme heat, and many were
condemned by the Board of Health or
refused by merchants. The prices
ranged from 5c to 10c per pound.
"Chucks and plates of beef were of?
fered at a new low price of 2c per lb.,
with no buyers. This is not only tho
outcome of hot weather, but the effe<*t
of the marked tendency of housewives
to buy only the dearer cuts of meat.
Old Potatoes Cheap
"The last of the old sea-son crops
I of vegetables are rapidly disappearing
from the market, Southern and nearby
new crop produce taking its place.
Some old potatoes are still available,
but the demand is negligible. What
remains are selling slowly at from
i $1.25 to $1.50 per barrel of 150 lbs.
; This is in striking contrast to the
prices of S8 to $10 for the same quan
; tity of old potatoes at this season last
year. Old carrots are still on sale,
but'are a drug on the market. The
large supply of new carrots from
nearby is sufficient to suppiy the lim?
ited demand. The old stock is bringing
from 75c to $2 per barrel, whereas last
I year at the same date prices ranged
' from $15 to $16 per barrel. Old onions
i are on tho market yet, but most of the
' stock is worthless and some is being
dumped. At this time last year the
; supply had been exhausted for some
"Western fruit shipments were
marked by the first full car of fresh
figs ever received from California. The
car contained 1,180 packages, weighing
from ten to twelve pounds each. The
I entire car was sold at prices varying
: from $2.25 to $2.30 per package.
"The week was marked by an un
i usual demand for fruits and melons.
< The approximate total receipts for
; melons, were: Watermelons, 396 cars;
! cantaloupe, 251 cars; for fruits:
I cherries, C5 carloads and 3,000 baskets
?from .New York State; peaches, 201
cars; raspberries, 8,000 crates; cur?
rants, 3,000 crates; huckleberries, 2,500
crates; gooseberries, 500 crates; black?
berries, 8 cars.
Lemon Demand Strong
"Because of the hot weather and in
'anticipation of the Fourth of July trade
the demand has been strong for lem?
ons throughout the week. During the
' week a boat load of lemons from Sicily
, brought the highest prices in the mem?
ory of present buyers. They brought
at auction from $9.12% to $10.37 for
: first choice stock of old crop contain?
ing 300 lemons per box. Thirteen car
: loads of California lemons sold at
' $12.25 to $13.50 per box of 300 lemons.
Twelve thousand boxes of oranges ar
rived during the week on the steamer
Willsolo by way of the Panama Canal.
? There was some decay, the average
? running from 5 per cent to 10 per cent.
The prices hold up well under the
! continued demand.

New York Life President Op?

Plan for Investments
Darwin P. Kingsley, president of the

I League, issues a warning that if the
Legislature enacts proposed legislation

He refers to tho plan of the Lock

surance companies to invest a propor?
tion of their funds in real estate mort?
gages. Mr. Kingsley complains of the
inference drawn from his letter "that
New York will get no aid in crisis from
His letter reads:
"Over the fraction of my letter to
Mr. Nathan Hirsch, president of the
Citizens' Protective Housing League,
printed in your columns this morning,
you put very misleading headlines.
The life companies of New York have
never ceased their efforts to relieve the
housing situation and they do not, so
far as I know, intend to cease now.
What I object to is legal compulsion
which will destroy the discretion of
trustees, invite reprisals from the
other states and result in killing the
goose that laid the golden egg.
"The West thinks that too many of
those eggs have been laid already in
New York. Texas passed such a law
some years ago and all the large com?
panies left that state. The investing
committees of tho life companies of
New York have tried, after first estab
j lishing security and a proper return,
to recognize the 'rights' of localities
! from which the money to be invested
? came. In this they have been remark
j ably successful, but New York natur
| ally has always had and now has her
I full share.
"If the Legislature of this state in?
dulges in the economic folly of depart?
ing from its traditional program of
telling trustees what they shall not
buy, and undertakes to tell them what
they shall buy, the consequences will
certainly be very serious."

As the McCumber bill would not au?

| Ocean City Cloudburst
Halts Traffic 4 Hours
Trolley Passengers Marooned j
and Many Streets Are Inun?
dated During Storm
ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., July 2.?A
cloudburst this afternoon inundated
Ocean City, short circuiting trolley
power lines, marooning passengers in
miniature lakes, flooding out automo?
biles and generally stopping all busi?
ness and travel for nearly four hours,
The downpour came about 2 o'clock,
after a steady rain in the morning.
Instantly third rail lines and overhead
trolley wires were put out of commis?
sion. This affected not only the West
Jersey and seashore trains, but all cars
or. the shore fast line between Atlan?
tic City and Pleasantville and from
Somers Point to Ocean City.
In Ocean City itself the water com?
pletely flooded Sixth, Seventh, Eighth,
Ninth, Tenth and Eleventh streets at
the intersection of West Avenue. Cel?
lars were filled and first floors of many
stores covered to a depth of six inches.
According to observers the water fall
came without warning. Particularly
heavy and black storm clouds appeared
overhead and from this suddenly came
solid sheets of water, the fall con?
tinuing for nearly fifteen minutes.

Republicans Oh?ain Option on
Syracuse Arena for Convention
Special Dispatch to The Tribune
SYRACUSE, July 2.?After a confer?
ence with Republican State Chairman
George A. Glynn, State Senator George
R. Fearon to-day obtained an option on
the Arena for the holding of the Re?
publican convention in this city Sep?
tember 22 and 23.
Chairman Glynn said addresses would j
be made at the convention by prom?
inent Republicans from all over the
country. Vice-President Coolidge, Sec?
retary of State Hughes and United
States Senators Wadsworth and Calder
would attend, he declared.
Republican state gatherings in the
past have been held at Saratoga
Springs, but the close of the hotels
there at the end of the racing season
makes that placo unavailable.
To Run Untermyer
For Appeal Bench
Afraid of His Attitude in
Coming Mayoralty Race;
Republicans in Central
Section Favor Andrews
While state Republicans will not
take decisive action with reference to
naming a candidate for judge of the
Court of Appeals to fill the place made
vacant by the death recently of Emory
A. Chase,* the leaders are sounding
out the sentiment and probably will
reach a tentative agreement on a can?
didate before the convention meets on
The sentiment in the central part
of the state favors the selection of
Judge William S. Andrews, of Syra?
cuse, who was designated to the Court
of Appeals bench by Governor Whit?
man. He presided at the Barnes
Roosevelt libel action in 1915. Alonzo
B. Clearwater, of Kingston, also is
under consideration by the leaders.
The Democratic leaders probably
will try to get Samuel Untermyer to
consider the nomination. Mr. Unter?
myer now is in Europe, but he will
be back in October. The Democratic
leaders are afraid of the possible at?
titude of Mr. Untermyer in the com?
ing mayoralty campaign. There is a
desire to placate his opposition to the
present Hearst-Hylan-Tammany con?
trol at the City Hall. Mr. Untermyer
in bygone years has been one of the
most liberal campaign contributors to
tho Democratic party. His son, Irwin,
was nominated for justice of the Su?
preme Court by the Tammany men in
1919 and defeated by a fusion of the
independent forces. Mr. Untermyer
desired the appointment of his son at
the hands of Governor Smith, but the
appointments went to Corporation
Counsel Burr and Edward J. McGold
rick. The estrangement between Mr.
Untermyer and the Tammany men is
complete. He is on record as saying
that if Senator Charles C. Lockwood
is nominated for Mayor he will take
the stump for him.
The Democratic leaders also are con?
sidering Lewis R. Parker and Robert
P. Whalen, both of Albany, for the
nomination. The Albany County
Democrats are planning to wage a
hard campaign for Mayor in Albany
this fall, and they think that the nam?
ing of an Albany man for judge of the
Court of Appeals would help.
Pastor to Fine Newlyweds
In Ban on Rice Showers
Bridal Parties Must Deposit $5
in Advance at Church of St.
Thomas the Apostle
Father John B. McGrath, of the
Church of St. Thomas the Apostle,
118th Street and St. Nicholas Avenue,
has placed a ban on rice showers at
church weddings. To Wake it effective,
he has announced, he intends to impose
a fine of $5 upon newly weds whose

Bridal parties will be asked for a
deposit in advance of the nuptials, and
in tho event of a rico shower the money

Father McGrath hit upon the idea
of a fine when his requests that the
practice be stopped failed to produce
results. He has told his parishioners
he believed the throwing of rice at the
church was a desecration.
