While traveling In a steel railroad coach through southern California Mayor Walker of New York clad himself in pajamas, regardless cf reception committees. Anyone who has traveled during hot weather in a steel coach will agree that the mayor exer.'isod good sense. THE SALARY SITUATION As we get it. If the Common Coun cil and the respective boards do not concur about certain salaries the would-be recipients of the emolu ments do not get any. Which is to say, if Oie Common Council and the boards for various reasons, political and otherwise, can not agree, the unfortunate gentle- men hired by the city can whistle . for their money. Go to court, maybe, ; and let the Judge decide what their I services are reasonably worth. To anybody but a lawyer, a court : action over salaries makes no instant appeal. It Is an uncertain and ex- j pensive manner of settling a dispute j which can be settled less expensive- : ly and expeditiously in a more ac- : ceptable manner. In other words, the city hall boys need only to quit playing ping-pong j and come down to earth regarding elemental civic management. SELLING TF1E SHIt'S The plan of the V, S. Shipping Board to Bel the finest of liners ! oneratinr under the aegis of the! government is now thoroughly un- j der way. The skids have been greas- ; ed and the launching will be one of the hips ploughing into the sea of i around t lie city than ever before, private operation. Some other lads seem to be in train- Greasing the skids for the event, ; ing for such honors as come with Is not entirely metaphorically speak- j skillful shooting. The game has ing,' nor is it hyperbole. The ship j much to commend it. A boy prac salea committee of the board had , ticing marhleis will at least have less come to an unanimous verdict. This 1 time for more mischievous pastimes verdict was possible only through during the summer siesta. It is a the accession of two new members j sport bereft of dangers and no to the board Rear-Admiral Hutch ' marble shooter cter cultivated bad I. Cone and Samuel S. Sandberg. ' habits from following the sport. This outspoken These gentlemen were advocate of getting rid of the ships , as most of them may be. before they were appointed to the The vide Interest tnkn through board; that, Indeed, is why they . out the cily in the fortunes of Car were appointed to succeed Admiral toll! illustrate once again how W. S. Benson and P. H. Teller, who quickly fellow citizens, old" and had been at odds with the adminis- ! young, warm up to anybody w ho tration plan to sell the ships. The brings distinction upon the homo plan was simple: Replace those on town. A. first class celebration was Hit; board opposing the sale of the ; due had Cartelli won the champion- ships with men who favored their j-ule. And thus we have what we "have. Chairman O'Connor, who con sistently has favored seling the ships. Is the other member of the ship sal's committee. The plan, therefore is unanimous for their sale. The plan to sell the ships was re ferred to tho committee only last week. It took the committee less than a week to come to a d"cision. The decision was certain without going through the formality of de bating the matter. The minds of the committee were made up The only item that needs particular attention is the plan of procedure how to sell them for the bert possible price; and m-be even 'hat will not be much to worry about. Thus the United State Lines and the American Merchant Lines, true two finest services operated in the North Atlantic by the government, will pass from its hands in due course. The former lino comprises five ehips, the latter ten combina tion passenger and cargo vessels. The former German vessels Mt. Vernon and Monticello will be re conditioned at a cofet of $12,000,000. Included in the batch of fchips which will be placed on eale will be the Leviathan, the biggest of the lot. It looks as if the government will get out of the shipping business before the November elections roll round. FROGRESS l. MAINE Two progress items of importance were reported from Maine thus week: The opening of the new $3,000,- e ! 000 automobile bridge across th Kennebec at Bath, Governor Trum bull of Connecticut being one of those present at the dedicatory ex ercises. Announcement of a $7,000,000 power project on the upper Kenne bec river by the Central Maine I'ower company, financial support being extended by Martin J. Insull, president of the Middlewest Utilities company. The Maine hydroelectric concern le a subsidiary of the Insull concern from the middle west. The bridge is regarded as ushering in a new era for northern Maine. Heretofore getting across the Ken nebec was a slow process, the fer ries plying only every half hour and being inadequate to the dematida. The bridge constructed and in use, a "flood of traffic" is expected to rush Into northern Maine. For three centuries northern Maine has ex isted without this bridge; now it is to boom, declare all the public speakers from Governor Brewster down. Perhaps they are right. The power development on the upper Kennebec will be the largest of its kind In New England. It will entail the construction of a 90-foot dam and a 60,000-horsepower sta tion. Thousands of men will be em ployed in construction work. The development ie expected to bo fin ished in 1931. The project will ex tend nino miles along the Kennebec river and the dam will impound 5,000,000,000 feet of water. The law in Maine still holds that power from the state cannot be ex ported to other states, Maine con tinues zealous of its power resources, fondly hoping that when there are more monster hydroelectrlcal de velopments more industries will come to the state. Or maybe the In sults hope that the law will be changed to allow power export. That ie thy more probable. A ROY ADVERTISES THE CITY As we understand it, the news reels will show all about the finals In the Atlantic City marble shootins tournament, and as Dominic Cartelli of New Britain was the contender with the winner the name of this city In all likelihood will blaze forth to millions of screen fans tho coming week. Thus It remains for a boy to produce more advertising for the city than anything happening in a decade. i Our marble champ made a game j fight and is entitled to the com- j inundation of his native city for the j efforts which nearly landed him at j the top. Only one could win the match and the reason Cartelli didn't ' win must have been due to the fact that the boy from Ohio was just a shade the better player. Good sportsmanship dictates being satis- j Ik d w ith the outcome; In this, as in 'all oth'-r things of ife, let the best ! lad w in. Since Cartelli did eo well In tho marble shooting sport we hae noticed more marble shooting cannot be said of all pastimes, good ship; bul even his failure to win in wie una! lumen lid not greatly dampen the admiration th:.t begun to run rampant. If the lad and his escort had been able to make train connections and arrive in the city on schedule the welcome at the railroad station would have surpassed any thing of the kind in years. A l lXA.NCTEH'S 1E VI II Strange indeed was lhu manner of d'-ath t hat tame to Alfred I. oewenstein. the Belgian financier, richest man in Europe. He had but recently isited the Lnlt- d States, where ho narrowly escaped death when getting too close to the revolv ing propeller of an airplane. As if fate was bound to snatch from life this "Henry Ford of Europe" he came to his death by falling from a plane crossing the English Channel. Thus a mun w ho had attained enormous wealth as if by a Midas touch readied the end of his career by opening the wrong door of the plane and careening to the waters : the principle from necessity, below. The pilot, unaware of tho The American debt was not red uc iragedy, continued to his destina-jed entirely from ths- surplus, of lion. course, as that would have been im- Loewenstein was one of the chief i postsible.

Shortly there after he offered to loan France a similar amount at 2 per cent inter- C.St. 1 oewenstein once said built his fortune on sound he had ' businefcs hunches as to the trend of industry. The sen of a banker in Brussels, he began life in fairly modest circum stances, having at the start only a few thousand francs. He early got an idea that artificial silk wojulU win its way in tho world and in vested in it heavily. He believed hydroelectric power would make great strides arid became interested in it. In South America were op portunities for investment which ie"er " wnne young. seized with vigor. Such methods he I , .. Doubtless Mr. Heflin. even as a continued for 30 years, and became, ; hoy carried ,vater for lhu ei-t.,lhum. tne ncnest man in Europe. A man who had attained a for tune of such dimensions it is dif ficult to count it and in the ac quiring thereof showed undouted genius, was so thoughtless as to open a wrong door in an airplane and fall from it. What amazing tricks are played by fate upon the wise and the unwise alike. HOUXC1NG OVER THE FALLS The main story in the Spring held papers today has to do with the exploit of a fellow citizen, one Jean Lussier, who rolled over Niagara Falls in a specially contrived rub ber ball and lived to be taken from the contraption fully aware of what had transpired, but a bit dazed or seasick. It was a wonderful feat and had been done only twice before, both times in barrels and once by a woman, Annie E. Taylor. She had never realized anything from her exploit and died in an infirmary. The other successful Niagara hopper was Bobby Leach," who went into vaudeville and met death in New Zealand when he slipped on an orange peel. Now Lussier. .16 years of age, has before him the possibility of cash ing in on being a man of distinc tion. We are not interested so much In bow he does it as we are in the specially constructed rubber ball. This ball, about 12 feet In diameter, built inside with cushions and a hard rubber weight on the one side to cause it to remain upright when possible, seems so simple that it is a wonder no one else had ever thought of it. In addition, Lussier was strapped tightly onto the cushions, including his head. All he had to do was to stay in his prison in which there also were oxygen supplies until the trip was over. So simply, perhaps, that anybody can try it. Stil, few would care for t lie eycperifiice. No company need be formed to give rides over the falls to such Hfi care to pay for the fun. There is enough evitement dodging automobiles. inE AMERICAN TREASl'RY Financially hard-pressed Euro pean nations, looking across the ocean at these United States, have had another item of news to think about. When the. report of the United States Treasury was an nounced this week the statistics read well. Which to Europe will be additional evidence that w-e have more money than is good for us. The debt-payers, cringing under 62-year contracts, wonder why they should pay money to a nation already hav ing more than it needs. Only when there is a desire for more loans is jthe talk gentlemanly and courteous, The American treasury, according to the report of Andrew W. Mellon, its secretary, is in a healthy condi tion. The surplus amounts to fS'.iS.niiii.iinO in real money. The esti mate was $ l'iri.OOft.iK'O; the fact that the actual surplus was loss than the prior estimates indicates merely that it is not possible to guess ac curately all the time. The cxpendl- . tures were $.1.044.000, (inn, and this sum also was more than the estimat ed expenditures made earlier, this estimate having been $1,621,000,000. The ordinary receipts were $4,042, (Mici.tmii which also was slightly less than the prior estimates, which had In en f (. etc, film, iimi. Tin; income lax rei-eipts were $2.1 74.00,Ofij; the estimate l ad been $2,165,000.0(1(1. The public debt was reduced by $9ii7,eciO,ooo a most important point and one wliieh ought to appal strongly to the American people. The us-fulness of maintaining a go'T-rnnient surplus has been much ' debated in Congress. Some would ' have the government expend all !t gets: or, putting the matter In an other light, collect no more than it acually needs. Such a policy would not reduce the public debt, which in turn would not distinguish the American government's finances from those of many nations of Europe which are forced to adopt treasury under Mellon's manage ment. The gross debt of the nation now is $17,604,000,000. In 1921 it was approximately $24, 000, 000, 000. More than a quarter of the 19:i total lias been paid off a result that has been achieved by the will to pay it off rather than the easier method of permittingi it to stay high and en joying lower federal taxation. As the debt is reduced we gt the lower taxation anyway, having less inter est to pay. Facts end Fancies HY ROBERT Vl ll.LEX The good don't die young.
