Violin as Antidote
To Entente Notes
Likes to Forget Anxiety in
Beauty of Beethoven So?
nata ; Qualities More Com?
mendable Than Heroic
LONDON, June 22 (By Mail).?The
Berlin correspondent of The London
Daily News has had an interview with
Chancellor Fehrenbach, who, he finds,
possesses qualities which are com?
mendable rather than heroic.
"I had hoped to get away from Ber?
lin to celebrate ray birthday in my be?
loved Freiburg, but the crisis provoked
by the Paris reparations proposals has !
prevented my so doing," said the Chan?
cellor. "I am never so happy as when
I can pack up and get away to Frei?
burg. Mountaineering in a modest way
and ivaiking are rny forms of exercise.
I do not go in for sport. Of course,
I have hobbies, music above all.
?"When the Entente sends us a par?
ticularly troublesome note, and the
dawn to our present darkness seems
more distant than ever, I like to take
up my violin and try to forget my anx?
iety in the calm beauty of, say, a Bee?
thoven sonata. As a young man I read
much English literature. Religious
sympathies attracted me to Newman
and others of his school, and, like all
good Germans, I explored Shakespeare.
I am told, by the way, that the English
lectures at our universities arc better
attend?d than ever before."
"And the jingo tendencies at your
universities?" ? put in.
"I don't deny the existence of such
tendencies," replied the Chancellor.
"but do not let us make the mistake
of exaggerating their importance. If
the spirit of the old r?gime has not
yet entirely died out there the Allies
have a measure of responsibility.
| Young Germany, because it is young,
? feels deeply the sense of the humilia
! tion our country has suffered since
I the armistice. Had the Versailles
! Treaty?but I need not pursue that
j line cf thought."
"Allied public opinion feels that the
i German government is not hard enough
| on the profiteer," I remarked.
"Then they have no grounds for so
' feeling," replied the Chancellor. "The
? present German government has
i neither pity nor protection for profi
I teers. We are out to tax them as far
j as we can?out of existence if pos
The disagreeable nature of many
; German films, plays and books was the
I last feature of present-day German
j conditions to which I drew the Chan
i cellor's attention.
"The strain of the war, the relaxa
I tion caused by peace and in the case of
j Germany the lifting of the censorship
! are responsible," he replied. "I think
j the social phenomenon you mention ia
j world-wide and passing. So far as we
are concerned a noticeable improve
i ment has already occurred. A reaction
! has set in, authority has been strength
i ened, the spirit of order, discipline,
i duty and willingness to work is abroad
i among our people. In this respect, at
' least, our future is not without hope."
i Mining Towns Abandoned
; Workers Refuse Owners' Pro?
posal to Operate With No Profit
SYDNEY, N. S. W., July 16? In
; activity of the copper mining industry
; has caused the practical desertion of
i the populations from the towns of
Cobar and Broken Hills. At one time
? Cobar boasted a population of several
thousand people Now it ia but a
i collection of bare shacks, with its
; people gone.
Broken Hills, another mining town
| that in i:s heydey had a population
: of 50 000, is also desolate. Early in
j 1J.-9, when the town's products were
: selling at high figures, the miners
? struck and remained out two years,
I during which time the bottom fell
freo the metai markets. When the
I miners were ready to return to work.
j the operators found they could work
j the mines only at a loss.
Owners of the mines told the men
; of their problem and offered to work
j the properties, without profit, for the
j sake of the miners, if the men would
! take wage reductions of about twenty
; per cent. The men, although depend
! ing upon the government for food,
; voted down the proposals. It wats
| charged that radicals led in the move
! ment to defeat the return to work.

State Farmers and
Confer Here To-day
New York Central Arranges
Meeting to Bring About
Better Co-operation; 55
Conferences between upstate farm?
ers and New York City middlemen
have been arranged here by the New
York Central Railroad for the next
three days. More than a hundred farm?
er? are in town to-day. They will
study market and transportation condi?
tions and make a night tour of the
milk distributing centers.
There will be a dinner at the Com?
The farmers will be escorted by Agri?
culturist F, S. Welsh and Agricultural
Agent R. M. Quackenbush, of the rail?
road company, who will receive the
visitors in the directors' room at the
Grand Central Terminal this morning.
The object of the tour, as announced
by the railroad officials, ia to bring
about a better understanding between
farmers and city middlemen as to their
mutual problems, as well as those of
transportation affecting particularly
the most efficient and economical hand?
ling of milk, meat, fruit, vegetables
and other food products consumed by
the millions of city dwellers. In the
visiting party will be fifty-five county
farm bureau agents, representing every
county in New York State except the
non-agricultural counties of Putnam
and Hamilton and the five counties of
greater New York. The important work
of these men is supported by county,
state and Federal funds, and each of
them will bring as a guest for the tour
one representative grower who in most
instances will be the president or sec?
retary of the grange or other leading
agricultural organization of his county.
The party here for the conferences i
represents the 75,000 members of the
New York State Federation of Farm j
Bureaus, of which S. L. Strivings, of ?
Castile, N. Y., ia president. Other ?
officials of the farm bureaus who are I
among the visiUrs are E. F. Smith, of
Sherburne; Charles S. Aldridge, of]
Fredonia, and J. D. Pease, of Gasport.
Middlemen handling food products in
New York, including wholesalers, job?
bers, retailers and storage men, have
felt that the growers generally have a
misunderstanding of many of the prob?
lems and conditions attending distribu?
tion in the metropolitan area, which, if
removed, would tend toward more effi?
cient cooperation, while the railroads
declare they are placed in the position
of buffers or go-betweens, which receive
at times the blame of both producers
and distributers for any unsatisfactory j
service received by the consumer.

Special Dispatch to The Tribun?
BOSTON, July 17.?At the summer
j home of Governor Baxter of Maine, on
I Mackworth Island, Casco Bay, are
j buried all of the dogs which died while
owned by him, since 1887. The Gov

These dogs are all of the same fam?

Glencore. She was given the Governor
in 1887 by his father, the late James P.

In all, the Governor has raised about

Soviet Calls on Russia
To Revive Petrograd
Preferential Food and Trans?
port Privileges Are Per?
mitted ""Dying City'
REVAL. Fsthonia, June" 2S (By
mail).?The Russian Soviet Council of
Labor and Defense has taken urgent
: steps to revive Petrograd, which even
the Bolsheviki themselves havo re
i cently termed a "dying city."
Thousands of workmen, confronted
: by starvation, and realizing that Mos
; cow wta favored over Petrograd in the
: matter of food distribution, have re
| cently left the city, with the result
; that scarcely enough man-power was
? left to operate what few factories
j could be provided with fuel.
At a session of the AAl-Russian Cen
! tral Executive Committee held in
Moscow a few days ago it wa3 decided
! to give Petrograd preferential privi
; leges in regard to fuel and transport,
i to place Pertograd in the same situ
i ation as Moscow with reference to
' food supplies, to establish a special
district from which food supplies
?should be drawn solely for the use of
; Petrograd and to enjoin all of Rus
i sia to come to the aid of Petrograd
i in the matter of food and fuel supply.
i A special commission, headed by Pre
! mier L?nine and including Zinovieff,
? Governor o Petrograd, was named to
? carry out the work.
It was declared that only one-sixth
] of the pre-war number of industrial
! enterprises were in operation in Petro?
grad. The population is said to num
i ber less than 700.000, a little more
than a third of the pre-war figures.
The committee also decided to in
] elude Petrograd to a greater extent
! than had been contemplated, in the
j general electrification scheme.

The Trib?ne Fresh Air Fund
Most folle think of tragedy as some?
thing belonging to adult life, bnt The
Tribune Fund uncovers little tragedies
of childhood every day as it goes about
its business of finding needy little lads
and lassies to send out in its vacation
A few days ago there lived In Brook?
lyn a lad who was one of the Fund's
old friends. Every summer for five
years past he'd spent a Fresh Air vaca?
tion with a host in Watertown, N. Y.
Ho was invited to return for another
visit this summer.
For some strange reason his father
refused to let him go. The lad begged
r.nd pleaded, but to no avail, and finally
the Watertown party went off without
him. The disappointment was too
much for the boy.
The next day he shot and killed him?
A small girl wandered into the Sil?
ver Cross Day Nursery and asked to
be sent to the country.
"It isn't very nice at home," she said.
Nor was it.
A few days before, after she and her
two sisters had gone to bed, her father
had come home crazy, murdered the
mother by nearly severing her head
from her body and then fled, leaving
the three little girls as agonized wit?
nesses of the terrible tragedy.
Perhaps the cool, clean breezes of
the country will blow some of the
terrible picture out of the minds of the
Down at the Washington Square
M. E. Church a lassie who had been
assigned to a Fresh Air party present?
ed herself for examination last Satur?
day. The examiner looked at her hair
and shook her head.
"Gee," wailed the lassie, "I never git
passed. Five years I try, but I never
The examiner investigated and found
the statement to be true. The girl is
"little mother" in an otherwise mother
less home and has a small sister tc
care for. Every summer for five sum?
mers she has asked to be sent to tht
country, hut, owing to the work al
home, she hadn't been able to tak?
time to get her hair in condition tc
pass the examiner's eye. And for somi
reason the workers had neglected tc
follow up the case and see that the gir
was given the necessary assistance.
The "little mother" and her sistei
will get vacations this summer even i:
the Fund has to provide the means c
getting the children clean in additioi
to providing the vacation.
Thi3 is the dark side of the Fresl
Air picture. It is referred to but sel
dorn, yet it is always there. The nee<
for Fresh Air funds and similar or
ganizations for the help and relief o
children springs from it. When all i
said and done, the average tenement i
a tragedy for the average child, for i
is a tragedy for childhood to be cut of
from most of the comforts and beau
ties of human existence.
The Tribune Fund is working harde
than ever this summer to take a littl
of the tragedy out of the lives of th
children of the tenements. Its friend
in the country are helping better tha
ever before by their willingness to er
tertain the children the Fund want
to send out. An almost staggerin
number of invitations from these kinc
hearted folks is in hand, and is bein
added to each day.
All that ?s necessary to a tremer
dous success for the work this summer
Is that enough money be contributed
to pay the bills involved In providing
the vacations. The response to the !
Fund's appeals for contributions so far j
has been generous. Will you, friends
of children, keep it up?

? tion, that was created at the last ses
j sion of the Legislature, a recommenda
i tion that Supreme Court judges be
i appointed by the Governor or by a
j Chief Justice of the state, instead of
I being chosen by a vote of the people.
With this radical change the club
i also recommends that the entire judi
: cial system of the state be organized
into one great court, all of the mem
1 bcrs of which would be appointed.
Various reforms of the jury system
? are proposed, the most important of
i which would permit verdicts to be
1 handed un by less than the entire jury,
I so that a failure of a jury to agree
? v/culd not necessarily result in a mis
I trial. The club deems a jury of six.
1 instead of twelve, sufficient for all
H. B. Bradbury, a lawyer of 141
! Browlway, has prepared a brief for
' submission to the convention, urging
the appointment of an executive jus
: tice, who shall have charge of and be
responsible for the court calendars, so
that judges may be used where most
Coney5 s Sunday Crowd
Sets Record at 459,000
A record crowd of 450,000 visited
Coney Is'and yesterday and 125,000
bathers thronged the beaches from
ear'y morning until late at night.
Trains arriving all day Saturday and
; up to 2 o'clock yesterday discharged
immense crowds and automobile travel
. to the beach was extraordinarily
heavy. A? hotels and boarding houses
were filled to overflowing and cottagers
j accommodate*! many thousands of visi
i tors over the week er.d.
Fifty-five ambulante calls were sent
in during the two days ending last
night, all but one being for minor in
| juries due to broken glass and jaeged
\ rocks encountered by barefoot bathers.
? The exception was the case of Pauline
| Sheidlowe, seventeen years old, of 75
j Sheriff Street, Brooklyn, who was play
! ing leapfrog on the beach, fell and
1 fractured h?y shoulder. She was re?
moved to the Coney Island Hospital.
Offer Wealth of
Leiria, Batalha and Alcobaca:
Show Mementos of the;
Spanish and English ; Old
Churches of Rare Beauty!
LONDON, June 25 (By Mail).?For I
the traveller in Portugal not many j
more day3 are more richly filled with ;
interest than that on which he drives
or rides or walks from Leiria to
Batalha and Alcobaca, writes The Lon- :
don Morning Post's Lisbon correspond- i
ont. He S'.-es Leiria's beautiful ruined ,
castle, built by King Dinis, the splen
did stretch of pine woods planted by ;
the same king, and the wonderful ?
Gothic churches of Alcobaca. the Cis?
tercian convent founded by Portugal's
first king in the twelfth century, and
of Batalha, built near the battlefield of
Aljubarrota (1385) to commemorate the
winning of Portugal's independence.
At Alcobaca is a huge caldron left
by the retreating Spaniards after the
battle in which English archers took ?
part on the side of Portugal; at Al?
cobaca, too, the beautifully carved
tomb of In?s de Castro, murdered at
Coimbra in 1355 and brought to burial
here along leagues of road lined with
burning torches. But it is Batalha
that has the most interesting memories
for Englishmen, and it is thus of happy
augury for the future of the ancient
alliance that Portugal's two unknown
soldiers are to be solemnly buried
The victory of 1385 was won by
John I., Master of Avis, and his young
i constable, Nuno Alvarez, whose boyish
| ideals had been fired with tale3 of
I Galahad and the Knights of the Round
; Table. John I. married the daughter
j of John of Gaunt, "time-honored Lan
; caster"; their tombs lie in the Foun
! der's Chp.pel of Batalha Church with
; those of their sons. The motto of one
? of these half-English brothers, who
j v;ere King Edward tne eloquent. Prince
? Henry the navigator, Prince John, mas
I ter of Santiago; Prince Ferdinand the
! constant, and Don Pedro, Duke o?
j Coimbra, almost describes the noble
\ simplicity of the interior of the church;
i "Le bien me plet"
Batalha was built on an English
j model, begun by English workmen and
called after Battle Abbey fits full
! name being St. Mary of Victory).
i The pinnacles and fin?ais of the roof are
I gray against the dark, pine-covered
! hills, but the entrance door and the
I main part of the building are of stone,
j originally white, and turned by time
! r-.nd weather to a rich golden brown.
j The "unfinished chapels" are a marvel
; of the later Manneline style, eloquent
; of glory and wealth achieved, whereas
; the Gothic church tells of austera,
i soaring aspiration. The whole build
; ing has been skillfully restored durin?

j nately little of the fine old stained
