THE EVENING WORLD recently predicted that if auto moil
wagons continue to hurl themselves through the streets in the
present fashion dire consequences will result. It also raised
the question: By whose direction do the drivers of these huge motor
vans dash to and fro regardless of traffic and crossings?
The following letter is pertinent:
To the Editor of The Evening World:
In reference to your editorial wy Who Ordersr the reason
why the null buses race through the city Is this:
We chauffeurs who drive them have to clesa up the mall every
day before ws can go home. The longer we take the longer we
hsve to work. As It is, we never work (ess than twelve hours, and
I have worked fifteen and one-hilf hours. I thought that all em
ployees on s Government contract were only sMowed to work sight
hours. I believe there was a law to that effect.
We got together and there was some talk of s strike, but cooler
hesds prevailed, as It would only be a question of a few days when
our splices would be filled and ws hsd no chance sgslnst the United
What we do need, snd what we would appreciate. Is to have
some one take up our causs to the powers that be, snd find out
why we sre compelled to work mors than sight hours ss psr law.
Then there would be no need of "By Whose Ordersr
A MAIL CHAUFFEUR.
P. S. After sn accident such ss you predict occurs, perhaps
there will be sn investigation.
Why not before?
The Tnited States Mail is a great and important service. But
is there any reason why it should organize its transfer system or
treat its employees in New York in such wise as to become a terror
and menace to people in the streets?
So trailers and repeaters startle Murphy Into speech,
the horror of the unfamiliar.

of his power. Within the next few minutes a trivial causo was to lead
to the downfall of much of his greatness.
The man who accompanied the King on his Inspection of the new palace
was the Marquis de Louvois, Minister of War and of Public Ituildings. He
had manoeuvred hln way Into both positions, since the King's two chief
hobbles were war and building. And on the Minister's success In each
line of work depended the royal favor.
The King suddenly paused In his talk and pointed at two windows In
the palace wall, declaring that they were not of an equal size, although
tl.e plans had called for two windows of precisely the same dimensiona.

At l.ouvols's InMigatlon, King I.nuls marched a big annv Into Germany.

At the end of nine year King l.ouls was eager enough for peace. And

fF WE COULD only believe that the case of Mra. Pankhurat
would result in driving aome sfiise into the thick skulls of the
men who administer our immigration laws, we might not i
view the whole proceeding with such unalloyed diagust.
The "moral turpitude" clauae under whirh thia and similar I beard
esses occur was designed to exclude foreigners seeking permanent '
residence in this country who seemed likely to prove public dangers or
public charges. Mrs. t'ankhurst may be a puzzle-headed woman with
unsound and extravagant convictions. But nobody believe that while
in this country Mrs. Pankhurst will find her may into an asylum,
jail or poorhouse.
As it stands, the "moral turpitude" provision in our exclusion
laws causes nothing but a succession of silly instances of over-zeal
and conflict of authority. The Federal courts and the Department
of Labor are constantly called upon to reverse the action of immigra
If the latter were blessed with ordinary intelligence and common
aense the "moral turpitude" clause might be left as it is. Since they
are not, the clause needs to be made thoroughly specific if the country
