WOULD HAVE GOVERNMENT
TO PENSION EX-PRESIDENTS
WASHINGTON, D. C, Special.
"Former Aiuerii an Presidents
should not tu? fort cd into third
? lass boarding houses after retlre
? ment from tillit e," said Senator P.
J. MeOnmher Friday, commenting
on the Carnegie pian to pension
e\-Presidents.
Senator McCumber has lntro
duted a bill in the Senate provid?
ing for retired pay for ex-1*? . '
dents.
"Private individu?is should not
be expo? ted to support public of
iiclals. either, but the government
.sl.ou'd pension its ex-Prosldents,"
continued the Senator.
Senator Culherson, ol Texas, one
of the floor leaders of the Senate,
today denounced the Carnegie
plan to pension former Presidents.
He said the plan is not only un?
dii-nllicd, hut umlemot ratic. The
matter undoubtedly vv111 be takeu
up by Congress at the toniing ses
sion. l.e added.
"Pamei-ie's offer." said the Sen?
ator, "ubi-e no doubt com eived in
every spirit of generosity, is an
affront CO the Ameritan ?people.
"The United States Oovcrntnent
can afford to take t are of its for?
mer Presiden :s. if the Conitress of
Ihe United States so determines.
I don't think it is the wish of the
Ameritan people that provistos*
should be made by a private t Itl
zen IO pension otr ? former chief
executives."
Others expressed themselves in
like vein.

NEA\r YORK? Special.? Luck dis?
played both of Its surfaces Tuesday
afternoon in the front apartment on
the second floor of .?07 North Fifth
Street, Williamsburg.
There live Mrs. Tommaso Cicarello
and her friends, I.uigi Bunomo and
his bride of three months, who is
seventeen years old. P.onomo is a
tailor and had saved up $350 with
which the couple planned to sail to
Italy next week. They were going
abroad with Giuseppe Artesi, a miner !
of Uniontovvn, Pa., and his son, Frank,
thirteen, so the Artesis came to the
house Monday. Intending to remain
there until they sailed.
The miner, on leaving Uniontown,
noted that several of the mining town
loafers took the same train. He saw
them again when he reached this city.
It had been rumored ?.round tho mine
that Artesi was carrying more than
$1.000.
At 5:30 P. M. Tuesday a man came
to the Cicarello flat and asked for Ar?

Dominion charters also tell an?

Hut Ylrginia's liberal attitude
should not he construed to mean
that her laws are lax and ailortl
poor protection to those buying
the ?took? and other securities or
big concerns. Precisely the op?
posite Is the case.
In order to comply with the
rules of the State Corporation
Commission, ineorporntors must
tile ?-worn statements of their en?
tire linam-ial plans, so that no
possible misunderstanding or
their fiscal schemes may occur
among tliost? v\ho take even rea?

In other words. Yirginia takes
this position: she h'ts the t on

whatever financial basis it
chooses, but ?trial basis must be
e\plaiiu*d in detail in official
statements tiled with the com?
mission, i-o that the public may
be safeguarded. And these state?

them or to attempt to evade the
truth is to run the risk Of prose?

It is in the matter of the com?
mon slock of corporations that
the public, pcrhup??. is most In?
terested and has most need to be
protected lest it be bamboozled
by **watcrod" securities with a
grossly fictitious value.
Concerns getting (barters in
Yirginia. no matter at what fig?
ure the par value of their com?
mon stock is placed, nicy sell it
for whatever they see lit. pro?
vided they set forth the exact lig?
ures in their statements tiled with
the Corporation Commission.
In this way Intending pur?
chasers can always post them?
selves. Daily inquiries or this
sort come to Clerk K. T. Wilson,
who promptly and cheerfully an?
swers every question.
\Yhcre cert i lied reports of the
statements arc required a small
fee is charged, though less de?
tailed information may be ob?
tained for nothing through let?
ters, or. better still, a full inspec?
tion of the records may l>e had
by a visit to the of fit es of tin?
commission.
Clerk Wilson Is most enth??
lle t?om?erning the siiccc-slul
o|>t?rat!oii of the Yirginia corpor?
ation laws and the revenues they
produce. lie ??***? that they are
?Oi .'iid to none in the I'nion?not
even t<> the rigorous laws of
Kan??.-la the manner in which
they safeguard the public.
And yet they have proved im?
mensely popular, for corpora?
tions, in recent years, have come
to reali/e that atiftllute frankness
pay- better than ev a-lv eiie?s or
Sinister methods. In the long run
new enterprises prefer to lay
hare their plans al the out-et of
their careers rather than have to
explain later.
It Is a noticeable fnet. too.
that the stocks of Yirginia cor?
porations sell better than other
American securities In England?
a fact w lift-h may be attributed
to the rospect in which the Old
Horn I nion is held among the
Rriions.
