Scheidemaiin Insists Berlin Allies Invite Hunerariai Reject 'Murderous' Treaty; i Reds to Paris Conference Son Violated Gould Trust, Says Lawyer George Returned Com? mission of $600,000 on Western Union 8 Years Later, S e a bu r y Jnsists First Accounting Made in 23 Years Frank and Anna Oppose, Edwin With Him, How? ard and Helen Neutral George J. Gould, eldest son of Jay Gould, was denounced yesterday in the Supreme Court as one who has grossly ?violated the trust his father placed in him in naming him a trustee of his es? tate. Twenty-three attorneys appeared before Justice Whitaker, representing various interests on the application of Frank J. Gould to have his brother George ousted as trustee. Former Justice Samuel Seabury, for Frank, strongly intimated that larceny had been committed in the handling of the trust funds set aside by Jay Gould, while Lorenzo Semple, appearing for Anna, Duchesse de Tallyrand, a sister, who is supporting Frank in his appli? cation, had this to say: "The will of Jay Gould gave the trustees great freedom of action, but it did not give George Gould the right to steal." Mrs. Shepard's Position Also, it developed in the proceeding that Mrs. Helen Gould Shepard, here? tofore mentioned as supporting her brother and co-trustee, George, really has not declared herself that way. She has bean quoted as saying in an affi? davit that the statements of Frank Gould were "inaccurate and distinctly ttiuleading." Judge Seabury in court yesterday j colled attention to the ambiguity of j the wording of Mrs. Shepard's affidavit and Robert W. DeForest, attorney for: Mrs. Shepard, made the startling an- \ Bouncemenc that this passage referred to the statements of her brother j George, who, it was believed, she was ?upporting. It applied, however, he laid, only to such statements made by George as had to do with her alleged Relive interest in the management of the estate and her knowledge of George's acts. Edwin His Only Support Beyond that, Mrs. Shepard does not y?t figure in the proceeding. The pres? ent family alignment now gives George Gould only the active support of his brother and co-trustee, Edwin. How Bid- it wa3 learned, has waived all hotice of the action and does not ap? pear, Mrs. Shepard is neutral, with Frank and the Duchesse de Talleyrand fccting in concert. Two separate motions were before lie court yesterday. One was by coun I?! for Frank Gruid to remove George J. Gould as executor, the other by George Gould to expunge, as "scanda? lous and impertinent," certain of the Charges against him Justice Whitaker decided he would accept briefs on the notion of George Gould and would hear argument on the original motion, that of Frank Gould. The accounting ?ffcred by George Gould, which brought forth this sensational public fight among the children of Jay Gould, was -aid to be the first that has been filed In twenty-three years. Only One Gonld Present The only member of the family pres? ent was Kingdon Gould, son of George Gould, who did not remain throughout the proceedings. An amusing incident ?occurr.-'l at the outset of the hearing. Judge Seabury questioned the standing In court of John B. Stanchfield, on which Justice Whitaker also asked to be enlightened. Mr. Stanchfi&ld ad? mitted that he did not appear for George Gould, but represented the ?n ?kretts of Lady Decies, Miss Marjorie Gould, Jay Gould and Kingdon Gould, children of George Gould, who are i gusainder men of the trust funds, j Mr. Stanchfield thereupon was per-! ?Bitted to take part He had fourteen point? he said to ?ho*/ that the proceeding brought by Fl*an_ Gould was not regular and up set ail th.

Departing Aliens Take 8 Pairs of Shoes Each WITH the exodus of an unusual number of foreigners every week, bound for their native coun? tries, thousands of pairs of shoes are being taken out of the United States. Shoe dealers here and in other sections of the country say that returning immigrants are aware of the denuded condition of the for? eign shoe markets, and before start? ing for home buy footwear for every member of their families on the other side. It is estimated that each outgoing immigrant carries with him an average of eight pairs of shoes. One dealer said yesterday that a laborer from Michigan bought fifteen pairs, which he intended to take to Italy. Petty Graft in Tax on Sodas, Officials Say| New Law Is Denounced as an Invitation to Rob Both the Government and the Consumer Kew York Tribune Washington Bureau WASHINGTON, May 13.?Orne?is of the Internal Revenue Bureau have come to the following conclusions in regard to the so-called soft drinks ex? cise tax of the new revenue law: That it tempts about 1,000,000 per? sons to become embezzlers and law evaders. That it ?3 making 100,000,000 per? sons disgusted with the whole Feder? al internal revenue taxation system. That it ,is bo vague and intrinsi? cally contradictory that any attempt to explain it reads like the lines of a . I comic opera. That it is being made the vehicle ! of profiteering and extortion, indi- j vidually petty, but collectively enor? mous. The law makes every soda water dis? penser in the country a collector of internal revenue, but it gives him no salary, requires no oath of office and j exacts no bond. To check each of hun- | dreds of thousands of dealers, mest of j them petty, on the pennies they daily j collect from the people is impossible. j The general custom of the dealers j is to provide some sort of receptacle \ into which they drop the tax pennies, j There is no way to tell hew often the | clerk forgets or purposely omits to | drop in the pennies. There is no way to tell whether the clerk, or even the proprietor himself, appropriates a considerable part of these coins from time to time. What is left in the bottle, can or box belongs to Uncle Sam. Whatever is taken out seems to pass for good into the hands of the takers. Clerks and proprietors know there is no check on them. This temptation, officers say, leads to crime, w'ith no chance of punishment. The public is becoming aware that under pretence of the tax, soft drinks have been marked up in price, and that under pretence or actuality of misun? derstanding the law a great many pen? nies are being collected that the deal? ers have no right to. There is no con? sumption tax on grape juice, cider, ginger ale and such drinks as are carried in bottles or other containers, but reports from all parts of the coun? try indicate that dealers everywhere are exacting such a tax. Thu3 the public, in addition to having to pay a petty tax that it detests, feels that it is being mulcted. Inconsistencies of Measure The inconsistencies of the law are' easy to see. If you live on the fifteenth story of an apartment hotel, 150 feet away from the soda fountain in the building, you pay a tax on the ice cream you buy there. If you live across the street 100 feet away, you don't pay. This is tne way the "prox? imity" qualification of the law is in? terpreted- If you buy a dish of ice cream at a soda fountain you are taxed; if you buy it at a restaurant with something else you aren't taxed. If you buy it in a cone you are taxed; if you buy it in a paper bag you are not taxed. Prices, it is charged, were raised before the law went into effect, so as to take advantage of an enforced tax to collect a larger margin. Mil*, c-ieam and sugar aro cheaper, but a 2-cent war tax is accompanied by a B-cent increase in the price of sundaes in many places. "War tax" is the vague explanation that satisfies most patrons, though they themselves arc paying it in addition to the- enhanced price of the article. Revenue officials find the semi luxury tax on articles of personal wear and use about as annoying and difficult to administer. They are "for" the cam? paign for the repeal of both forms of ; taxation. Family of Three Found Dead; Cause a Mystery Joseph Tilumberg, twenty-two-years old, his wife, Celia, eighteen, and their ; four-months-old daughter, Margaret, were found dead in their home, -IS!) j Columbus Avenue, last night.

Prall, Hylan's Choice, Heads School Board j Somers, Who Fought Mayor, ! Is Defeated for Re-elec- ! tion as President of the \ Education Trustees Many Reforms Promised Great Building Programme ! and Relief of Overcrowd- ; ing Outlined by Official Anning S. Prall, a Richmond real es- ! t?te man and reputed candidate of the ; city administration, was elected presi? dent of the Board of Education yester? day at the board's annual meeting. He . defeated Arthur S. Somers, who stood for reelection, by four votes to three, with Frank D. Wilsey casting the de? ciding ballot. On motion of George J. Ryan, of Queens, the election was then ; made unanimous. As the decision was announced a school teacher at the rear of the large ; gallery that gathered for the occasion murmured pensively, "Well, Hylan wins." If there was any one to dis- \ pute that interpretation of the choice ? he failed to make himself heard. Ex-President Somers, asked to com? ment on his defeat, said: "I'd rather not. It's hardly neces- j sary, is it? The thing speaks for' itself." But the outgoing president smiled ! as he congratulated his successor and, j together with George Ryan, escorted him to the official chair. Prall Outlines Programme Mr. Prall produced a typed manu? script from an inner pocket and read his speech of acceptance. It announced a policy of close cooperation with taa | Board of Estimate and Apportionment. ; The present over-crowding in the ! schools Mr. Prall referred to ?s a "heritage from the preceding adminis- j tration." To-day, he declared, the Board of Education has in view the i "most generous building programme in | the city's history," calling for an ex- ! penditure of nearly $22,000.000, "This speaks volumes for the gen- ; erosity of Mayor John F. Hylan," he j added, "and for the generosity >i the Board of Estimate and Apportion? ment." Mr. Prall came out particularly strong on the score of Americanism, and pledged himself to see to it that undesirable radical teachers shall be i eliminated from the school system. At the same time he urged wider rep- | resentative powers for the teachers' ? councils and announced that he in- j tends to apply for an amendment to the state education law whereby an examiner's court of appeals will be j created to pass on the cases of teachers who believe they have been unfairly rated by the local examiners. Proposal Pleases Teachers Insofar as the rating question is to-day one of the sorest points with 1 the teachers, this declaration 'jy the S new president met with delighted re ? sponse from them. So did his asser I tion, made in connection with his ! "reference to the necessity for co i operating with the Board of Estimate, i to the effect that there is an "im? perative need of an upward revision of the salaries of the professional and ' clerical staffs." Mr. Prall tempered sorro of these re J marks with the reminder that the linan ' cial ability of the city to aid the Board of Education is "strictly limited." Re? ferring to the clashes the board has had with the city administration, which have been frequently mentioned as the i cause of Mr. Somers's downfall and his own elevation, Mr. Prall said: "I am sure that I speak for all when I promise scrupulous regard for an i honest enforcement of any final dc ! cisi?n regarding our funds or statu's by , any court or other tribunal of last re ; sort." At the conclusion of the speech, Mrs. Emma L. Murray placed Mr. Wilsey in nomination for re?lection as A-ice president. Joseph Yeskn seconded and, on Mr. Ryan's suggestion, the choice ; was made unanimous. Ryan Nominates Somers Commissioner Ycska and Mrs. Mur ! ray also were responsible for the nom? ination of Mr. Prall. At the opening : of the proceedings, with Mr. Wilsey In the chuir as president pro tern., Mr. ] Ryan offered the name of Mr. Somers ; for reelection. He said that he knew : he was probably presenting a minority choice, but that, in view of President ? Somers's able conduct of the office during especially trying times, he felt ' that he "owed it to himself" to do so, : Mrs. Ruth F. Russell seconded in a laudatory speech. ; Commissioner Yesk.'i then briefly proposed Mr. Prall, and Mrs. Murray even more briefly seconded. At the end of the session a rising vote of testi ? moniul to ex-President Somers was i passed, together with a resolution to present him later with "some more substantial reward." Mr. Prall, in his speech of Acceptance, also hinted at an effort to obtain something permanent of this sort for Hourd of Education members of long standing. At the close of the meeting Mr, Prall ? announced that he had been unofficially ! informed that the finance committee of i the Board of Estimate has decided fn i vornbly upon the Board of Education's ! request for a $25,000 appropriation to i investigate its own affairs, fiscal nnd otherwise. This request originated with . Mr, Prall, when the row with the city j Administration was at its height. Frf I day, Mr. Prall said, ho expects the mat? ter will bo reported to the Board of Estimate and be acted favorably upon.

Europe's Public Buildings j Oswald Garrison Villard, editor of "The Nation," advocated a soviet?form of government for the United States and suggested that legislation against the appearance of the red flag might cause embarrassing situations when future ambassadors come to this coun? try in a speech before the Committee on Reconstruction . t the Hotel Bossert, Brooklyn, last night. "Changing the basis of our repre? sentation to the soviet form would not j only give us a different government, | but would give us a different feeling | toward our government," declared Mr. Villard. "We have lost all respect for our I legislative bodies.

Allied representatives at Vienna were directed recently to pro? ceed to Budapest for the presentation of the proposal.

Tchitcherin. Bolshe- j vik Foreign Minister, a?:d relayed by | the Foreign Oflice at Berlin, announced ? ! that the Bolsheviki refuse to cea?e j hostilities as a condition of the pro- j visioning of Russia by neutrals. Tchitcherin says he received Dr. Nansen's communication dated April 17 on May 4. He thanks Nansen for his interest in the conditions in Rus '? sia, but declares that a continuation j of hostilities is necessary for political j reasons, and that it would be poor pol \ icy to stop them. The soviet govern ? raent, he adds, is willing to support a movement to feed Russia so long as , it has no political character, "but will | not be duped." He then goes on to denounce Ad ( mirai Kolchak and General Denikine, I and concludes by declaring that it will | be impossible to give up lighting as | enemies are attacking on all sides. The feeding of the Russian popula? tion is no solut'on of the Russian ques 1 1.ion, it is declared in a memorandum ' sent to the iieace conference by Prince ; LvofT, Sergius Sazanofl" and President !

The feeding of the famished pop? ulation is no solution of the Russian : question.

The declaration by Chun cellor Scheidemann in the Nation?

The Chancellor reached the cllmai of his statement on the peace term? ten minutes after he began. The Chan? cellor paused in his address and the? thundered out the word which an. nounced the German government's re? jection of the Versailles conditions. With the exception of the Inde? pendent Socialists, led by Hugo Hitase, all factions in the Assembly rose to their feet and cheered vociferously.

The Chancellor said German trade would be I strangled should the peace terms be 'accepted. He criticised President Wil? son and said that the President by his attitude had deceived the hopes of the German people. The Chancellor said that the oc? casion was the turning point in the life of the German people as the As? sembly was to decide the attitude tow? ard "what our adversaries call peace conditions." "The representatives of the nation," he continued, "meet here as the last band of the faithful assembles when the Fatherland is in the greatest danger.
