In the first place the development s at Rumford Falls was not an entirely y new development, which made the cost 1 lower than it would otherwise have I been and in the second place the cost i of development at Rumford Falls is i not a fair illustration from which to . make a comparison, for at Rumford y Falls there is a water fall of one hun- 1 dred feet and at Rumford Falls thecost | of development is cheaper than is any T other power development east of the j, Mississippi River, excepting at Niag ara; moreover, the cost was MORE f THAN ONE MILLION DOLLARS, i how much more was not stated and the paper quoted was not warranted T in assuming that it was but a little . above that sum, But on the basis s stated the development at Rumford * Falls presents other phases of the question which enter into the cost of » development. For example, the Rum- J for Falls Power Co., owing to the I class of customers it serves, is prac- f tically required to develop more than T the amount of PRIMARYjpower avail- 4. able as a safeguard gainst accidents, » thereby reducing the cost per horse T power installed, as against the power 4 earning revenue, in proportion to the $ excess developed. £ A statement that cannot successful- $ ly be controverted is that the average X cost per water horse power in Maine is J not less than $150.00 exclusive of the | cost of transmission and distribution. X As an example, the great Aziscohos X Dam cost one million dollars, and the y amount of power available at that , dam if developed for power purposes, -jr is stated to be 7,600 horse power, so £ that the cost without FLUMES, T HEAD GATES or ELECTRIC EQUIP- * MENT is still $131.00 per horse power. ^ Again the impression is given that 4 • because power may be generated 5, ! comparatively cheap at one point that X ; the consumer is paying an exorbitant X price for lighting his house or for use T of power. Why should not the issue X be met in a fair spirit? T The writer of the article quoted must X knowj that it costs large sums ot money f to transmit electric current from its f source to the place of use; that it re- f quires pole lines, transformers, service ^ lines, meters, etc.; that the distribu- I tion to the customer is one of the largest items of cost and also of main- *r tenance; that there is also a loss of f powrer between the point of genera- J tion and the meter of the consumer; J that the labor cost is largely charge- . able to the distribution system. 1 WThy does the waiter of the editorial ? dodge the fact that power that is sold $ on a constant basis of twenty-four f hours in the day and on 312 or 365 a days in a year, is a very different mat- i ter from power that is sold to a house- T holder for lighting purposes or to a | user of a motor for a few hours a day, * and where the amount used is but a jr small fraction of what the service .j. corporation is obliged to be ready to • furnish at any time? J Before making statements charging * persons wTho are developing electric T power and trying to meet the needs of ^ the public with illegally oyer-charg- £ ing the public, why not investigate T w hat a powTer factor means, wThat the X difference is between primary and sec- f ondary power and a few other facts J about w’hich these people who develop X water powers have to inform them- | selves before they can embark on the T enterprise. X Is this paper quoted above willing to X commit the people of the State of Maine to undertake a development y costing millions of dollars on the J amount of information possessed on ^ this subject as shown by the editorial y cited? «£ i i $ •Signed) \VM.

Calico Parasols. Slip on Blouses and Sweaters Sleeve less Coats. Necklaces. (Correspondence of The Journal.) i Attractive as are many of the things displayed for mylady’s wear, they must be practical, or she will, have none of them, though she does like barbaric neck laces that are only effective, neither practical nor pretty. Just to establish her right to vary once in awhile from the set rule. Umbrellas and Parasols. Short bandied and stubby are many of the best liked umbrellas, that sacrifice none of their spread in consequence and hang comfortably on the arm when not in use. With silks made waterproof many of these are so elaborate in stripes and color combinations that no one, not initiated, i would suspect that they are as good for j rain as for sun protection. One of the , best styles has a strap of pig skin at- i . . I (AI : McCall Design ! tached to the handle by a pig-skin braid ed band, and the tips are celluloid colored to match the leather trimmings. Parasols are in wonderful array this year, from elaborate concoctions of chiffon, silk and lace to simple styles of linen, gingham and calico that will go beautifully with the cotton frocks that are to be increas ingly modish as the mercury climbs, when every woman is busy and must be fitting ingly and comfortably clad. One of the newest auto-parasols folds, is rain proof, and has a detachable bag as part of its make up. Slip-on Things. All sorts of slip-on things grow in favor from negligees and gowns intime, to blouses and coats, that go on over the head with never a sign of a fastening, and only a belt sometimes, to keep them 1 trim. Sleeveless sweaters in all varie ; ties are popular, and sleeveless coats, es specially of black velvet are reckoned i very desirable additions to the outfit. ' These are usually bound With black silk j braid, but are often guiltless of any trimT I ming other than their own smart cut and j buttons. Necklaces. There is a veritable craze for slip-ovei ! necklaces. These are made of any and every color of fine beads and large, beads of wood, crystal or stone, and disks ol jades or metal, with combinations ol everything, hit or miss. They are ofter most effective and lend a note of color tc the plainest blouse or frock. Anyway j they are a craze that has] caught on and s must be noted. LUCY CARTER. e 3 - 1 10c. and 15c.

A statement by Sec. Baker giving the estimate and outlining plans for the draft, given out Tuesday, reads: “Probably three-quarters of a million men will be added to the American army in the making by the registration of June 5th next of boys who have reached the age of 21 since June 5th, 1917; or who will be 21 on or before June 5th, 1918. This estimate was made Tuesday by Provost Marshal General Crowder, who will di rect the registration. “Gen. Crowder’s estimate was based on the fact that almost 10,000,000 regis tered last year. This number included all between 21 and 31. Statistics col lected by Gen. Crowder’s office show that a little more than 10 per cent of these men were more than 21 years old. On this basis it is estimated that this year’s registration will exceed one million. Of this number, Gen. Crowder estimates that three-quarters, or about 750,000, will be available for military service. This makes proper allowance for physical de fects, exemptions because of dependents and others. “Under President Wilson’s proclama tion all male persons, citizens or aliens, must register. The only persons excepted are officers and enlisted men of the regu lar army, navy and marine corps and the National Guard and naval militia, and officers of the officers’ reserve corps and enlisted men in the enlisted reserve corps while in active service. “Gen. Crowder plans to have the local boards keep their offices open for regis tration between 7 a. m. and 9 p. m. on June 5. Between these hours all men born between June 1, 1898, and June 6, 1897, must register. These men are sub ject to the provisions of the selective ser vice act under which the original regis tration was held.” Registration is to be made in Belfast and it is reported that registration is authorized in Thorndike and Stockton Springs. This is done to accommodate registrants. It is expected that one or two other registration branch offices will be designated in Waldo County. Male persons, whether citizens or not, are required to register. Exemptions un der the original act, including men already in the military service, apply, and to these the new law adds ministerial and medical students now pursuing their studies. The President’s proclamation gives no tice to all persons subject to it in the states and the District of Columbia to appear for registration on June 5th, be tween the hours of 7 a. m. and 9 p. m. It has been estimated that about 800, 000 men fit for active military service will be made available to the army by the next registration. Hereafter it is planned to have registrations oftener than one a year, probably quarterly. RUSSIA’S REDEMPTION OUR SAFETY. j We are lighting for mankind, of course, but specifically we are fighting for that part of mankind which is comprised with i in the borders of the United States. We i are fighting to preserve its independence I and its institutions. And we know that neither the independence nor the institu tions will last long if the great predatory powar of modern times is permitted to extend its sway from the Baltic Sea to i the Pacific Ocean. That is what will fol | low, as the night the day, if we are so : foolish as to abandon Russia to her mercy. It makes no difference in this respect whether Russia is brave or cowardly, whether she has abandoned us or stood by us, whether she is ruled by saints or madmen. The present German empire, comparatively circumscribed in extent and strength, has assailed and sought to overpower the rest of the world. If she is made virtually limitless in extent and I strength, as she would be if European | and Asiatic Russia were absorbed by her, : she will be able in the future to accom plish with ease the overthrow of the rest of the world; and the first blow she will aim in that event will be at the American Continent. It is our own fault if we let her make herself irresistible. If we do, we will be her first victims And if we let her have her way with Russia, irre sistible she will be within ten years.— ■ New York Times.
