Surrogate Cohalan yesterday granted
Henry Lane Eno $47,550 to be paid
out of the $11.000,000 estate pf his
uncle, Amos F. Eno, who died in Oc?

Amos F. Eno left two wills. One
dated 1914 left his nephew about $2,
000,000, while under a 1915 will he gets
but S50.000. Under either will his
two children inherit about $1,500,000,

This morning at 8:50 o'clock. 120
boys and girls will begin a journey

in five Massachusetts communities.
Hinsdale is to entertain eleven of
them; Dalton thirty-two. Cheshire
will receive as guests fourteen, and

For every one of these boys and girls
a kind-hearted hostess in one of the
places has opened her home. In all of
the communities great plans are afoot
for giving the children a royal time.
Picnics, motor rides and bathing
parties will be the order of the day
and the fortnight. But these things
will be only the superficial part of the
entertainment. The warmth of heart
and the kindliness of nature which has
inspired the people to take the chil?
dren in are the real gold of what the
boys and girls are to get.
Of course they will come back brown
as berries, fat as butter and as full of
life as the liveliest thing there is.
Yesterday invitations were received
by the fund for more than seventy-five
children to be entertained in Corning,
So the good work goes on. The people
of the country are standing by royally.
How about you who haven't country

to pay railroad fares to it.
Will you give us some of it?

Director Is Defiant
Uses Plain Words in Giving His
Opinion of Society's
BOSTON, July 14.?The controversy
between the board of trustees of the
Christian Science Publishing Society
and the directors of the First Church
of Christ, Scientist, whom they are
suing to prevent interference with the
society's affairs, was described from
the viewpoint of one of the directors in
a letter read at the hearing of the suit
' before a master to-day.
The "trustees' affairs" were said to
be a "determined effort to divide our
church from within." It was further
described as "a subtle attempt or error
to 'steal the livery of Heaven to serve
the devil in.' "
The letter was written by William
R. Rathvon to his fellow directors on
February 18, last. He served notice
! that he would not be a party to "a
i course of supine acquiescence with the
trustees' present position of ignoring
the "manual' 'of church government,
saying that such a course "seems
equivalent to allowing the dirty pool
to remain unpurged, while we lovingly
endeavor to show the transgressors the
unwisdom of their defiance."
I Drummers Ask "Franchise"
A decision to seek introduction in
the Legislature of every state in the
Union of measures similar to that re?
cently passed in New York State,
giving travelling salesmen the right
to vote wherever they happen to be on
election day, was reached at a special
meeting of the National Council of
Traveling Salesmen here last night.
It is estimated that 50,000 salesmen
i in New York State were "enfranchised"
! by the measure, and that 600,000 in the
I United States would be benefited if
! similar laws were passed in all states.
Permanent Federal Job
Bureau Meets Opposition
WASHINGTON, July 14.?Henry D.
! Sayer, Industrial ?fomissioner of New
| York, opposed the bill creating a per
: manent Federal employment service to?
day before a joint session of the House
j and Senate Committees on Labor. Ho
! said, however, that he would support
the bill if it were properly framed.
"I should certainly oppose setting up
an independent Federal employment
bureau," he said. "We tried coopera?
tion with the government for six
monthsi, and it was a failure. If the
bill could be framed to insure coopera?
tion, I should approve it."
Give a Thought to?
??.? AM naturally quite enthusiastic
-"- over the improved traffic condi
. tions in this vicinity," smiled Louis
Bobbe, advertising manager for H. C. F.
Koch & Co., Inc., of 136 West 126th
Street, "inasmuch as I was instru?
mental in inducing Mayor Hylan to
come up here and see for himself the
deplorable traffic conditions of a few
months ago, with the result that the
safety zone system was installed all
along 125th Street."
Harry Levitt, manager of the Stand?
ard Furniture Company, 31 West 125th
Street, was satisfied with the present
situation and was quite optimistic for
a large increase in business. "Now
that traffic has been taken care of in
a proper manner, there is absolutely
no reason why every reputable mer?
chant should not show an enormous
profit on his ledgers," he declared.
Probably the most enthusiastic busi?
ness man in this uptown district is
Daniel Kirshbaum, manager of the
Defender S. G. Company. "Practically
all of our business comes from the
north," said Mr. Kirshbaum. "We do
not get much business from people
: from the south or downtown New York,
\ and it. is with this in mind that Dr.
J. Grrdiner Smith, M. D., through the;
Boaid of Commerce, is endeavoring to j
induce the New York Central people |
to build a new station at Park Ave- |
nue and 125th Street. This has not ?
yet developed into the tremendous
! movement that will shortly be launched
to induce the railroad to get busy."
47th Locates Colors,
But Cannot Get Them
Brooklyn Regiment Informed
They Will Stay in Adjutant
The 47th Regiment,, of Brooklyn, has
found the colors which its Headquar?
ters. Company took to France with the
53d Pioneer Infantry, but it hasn't suc?
ceeded in getting them. The colors are
in the office of the adjutant general at
Albany, and there they will stay, ac?
cording to Colonel J. W. Myers, ns
sistant adjutant general, in this city.
The regiment to which the colors be?
longed became officially extinct, Colonel
Myers said, when the men were mus?
tered out of the Federal service. The
place for its relics, he added, was the
office of the adjutant general of the
fivery other regiment in the state
brought back its own colors. The 47th
was the first of them all to be mus?
tered into the Federal service. Its men
were split up among sixty-four organi?
zations, the Headquarters Company
going with the 53d Pioneer Infantry
and seeing action nine days after
Regulations provide that in such case
the colors are to be intrusted to the
state from which most of the men in
the regiment come. Most regimental
commanders returning from France
have construed this to mean returning
the colors to the stete regiment from
which most of their men came. Colonel
Charles H. Englesby, of South Dakota,
commander of the 53d Pioneers, how?
ever, followed regulations to the letter
and, unknown to the men, sent the
regimental colors of the 47th to Al

Gets First Glimpse
At Vice Court Work !
Miss Rothenberg, After Hear?
ing Sordid Stories, Says!
Judges Should Enforce j
Single Morality Standard I
Sobbing and tugging nervously at !
her handkerchief, the little sixteen- ?
year-old Italian girl made a sorrowful j
picture as she stood before the bar \
of justice in the Woman's Day Court i
yesterday and answered to the charge
of vacrancy. From the back2 of the
courtroom came hysterical sounds,
where the child's mother and father
alternately harangued each other and
the court in Italian.
Watching the melodrama that is
part of the day's routine in the Jef?
ferson Market Court sat Rose Rothen?
berg, the newly-appointed Assistant
Deputy District Attorney, preparing
herself to take up the duties of a
Yesterday was a lean day in the
court. Since the publication of Judge
Rosalsky's decision reversing the sen
tence on two girls, the number of
vice cases in the Women's Day Court !
has shown a marked decline. Magis- '
trate W. Bruce Cobb, the presiding
judge, said the average was now two
cases a day, where previous to the
investigation it had been seven.
There were only five cases for Miss
Rothenberg to watch?-four were old
offenders and the fifth was the little
Italian girl. The new deputy was !
greatly amused to 'be accidentally I
taken for an offender herself, and
dragged forward by an inspector who
failed to recognize her as the first
feminine prosecutor in the Jefferson
"That is the kind of case I want
to handle," commented Miss Rothen
be*lg when the Italian girl was ac?
quitted. "I am glad Magistrate Cobb
let her go."
But before she was dismissed six?
teen-year-old Rosa unfolded a pitiful
story. She is the sole support of her
family. She turned over to her father
and mother all the money she earned
as a telephone operator. Her father re?
fused to give her even 25 cents to get
her shoes from the cobbler. She was
so miserable and unhappy that she
stayed away from home one night and
slept in the park. And yesterday her
father and mother followed her to
court in desperate anxiety to help free
The girl stayed behind while Magis?
trate Cobb gave her some good advice
and told her to go to the Florence Crit
tenton Home, where she would be well
looked after. But all that Rosa thought
of was her mother, who, she vowed,
would die if she did not return home.
"I am constantly reminded that my
job will be prosecution," declared Miss
Rothenberg. "Men are apt to be afraid
that a woman is going to be too soft?
hearted and let all the cases off. While
I am going to remember that I am pri?
marily a prosecutor, at the same time
I am going to play a dual part."
Miss Rothenberg does not'believe in
the double standard of morality and is
going to work to have men brought
into court along with the women.

Big Project Receiving Substan?
tial Backing in Brooklyn
Brooklyn and Queens have placed
themselves solidly behind the drive of
the Long Island chapter of the Knights
of Columbus Social Service, which is
attempting to raise $500,000 to be

the campaign is to continue until July

the quota will be passed before that

Spanish Light Operas Are Sung
for the First Time
By Heywood Broun
Although we cannot speak with au- !
thority concerning the dialogue of the
Spanish light operas which were pre- ?
sented at the Cort Theatre last night ;
the man in front of us almost fell out ?
of his seat with merriment. Perhaps ?
it helps to understand what the per- j
formers are saying, although such i? i
not often the case in our native mu- !
sical entertainments. The music of
"La Viejecita" is particularly pleasing,
but the singing was not of a high order.
The operetta seems to be the Spanish
version of "Charlie's Aunt." The hu?
morous possibilities of this plot were
somewhat impaired by the fact that
a woman plays the part of the young
man who disguises himself in female
Consuelo Baille played this rfcl**

of the performers was Nelly Alonzo, I

that the stagehands were quite defi- j
cient in Spanish, for the curtain kept i
coming down at inopportune moments.
Perhaps they could not stand the
strain of listening to all the songs in |

Tom Moore Makes Most of an
Excellent Opportunity in
"The City of Comrades"
Tom Moore does the best work we
ever have seen him do in "The City of
Comrades," which is the feature pict?
ure at the Rialto this week. He is so
simple and yet so terribly sincere that
he brings strength and dignity to a
picture which would otherwise be trite
Basil King did the story, and he has
been careful never to ask too much in
the way of credulity. His people seem
human and he never has uny one stand
up and preach anything.
After "Lovey" and "Slim" are re?
formed and "Slim" backslides, the old
valet starts in with some remarks in
regard to John Barleycorn and we fan?
cied that at last the hidden claw of
reform was to be revealed. But not at
all. Instead of condemning drink (.and
this would not be a propitious moment
for that), he said, "There is plenty a.*
can take it or leave it. But you and
me ain't that kind. If we take it we're
"The City of Comrades" is the name
of a club founded by a man who had
himself been a derelict. This part was
played by Alec Francis. Tom Moore,
who is known to his fellow derelicts
os "Slim," has fallen so low that at
last he agrees to rob the home of Mrs.
Barry because he and "Lovey" are so
hungry that his conscience ceases to
He enters the house, but after he has
had his hunger appeased conscience
comes to the fore and he returns the
jewels he has stolen. In doing so he
meets the daughter, Regina, and im?
mediately resolves to marry her,
though how he could have thought
that he had a chance with that beard
is more than we can fathom.
We were dreadfully sorry when
Regina discovered him behind the cur?
tain, for he did not look prepossessing,
and we knew that soon he was going to
get a shave and a new tweed suit. This
he did in the next reel, and he married
the girl, too, just as he had planned.
She refused him at first, an-d then he
went) back to Canada to enlist, and we
were afraid it was going to be a war
But again Mr. King avoided the ob?
vious and only showed the hero in
the good looking uniform of the '
Dominion Flying Corps, and then Re?
gina accepted him.
Seena Owen is the girl, albeit Roscoe
is Slim's rival for the hand of Re?
gina, and Kate Lester plays Regina's
mother. Otto Hoffman doc3 some ex?
cellent work as Lovey.
Robert Walker, whose work we liked
so much when we saw him with Viola
Dana last year, is seen in a small part.
Harry Beaumont directed the picture.
There is a comedy called "Never
Touched Me" which features Harold
Lloyd. Also a Rruce scenic culled "The
Land of Silence," and the Rialto Maga?
zine, with the Sayings of Topplitzky.
The musical programme is interest?
ing Martin Biefel, Emanuel List and
Edoardo Albafio render the trio fron:
"Faust." Gladys Rice sings "Some?
where a Voice Is Calling," and she
sings it beautifully. Also, although
this has nothing to do with her ren?
dition of the song, she looks unusually
handsome in a silver brocade ( g%wn.
The overture is from "Manon," with
Hugo Rie'senfold conducting.
Lack of space prevented us from do?
ing more than mention Mrs. Sidney
Drew's "Bunkered," which is showing
at the Rivoli. It is a charming little
comedy which Mrs. Drew has filled
with people who are exactly the kind
of people you find in real life. Angie,
the ingenue, is not too pretty and she
is most convincing in the r?le in spite
of the fact that she never has been
before the camera before. Thank good?
ness, Mrs. Drew is going to keep on
writing and producing these comedies.
for there is no other to take her place.
"Broken Blossoms" is in its last week

Cunard Line Freed
^rom All Liability
For Lusitania Loss
Federal Judge Enters Final
Decree Dismissing Actions
for ?6,000,000 Damages;
Blame Put on Germany
A final decree absolving the Cunard
Steamship Company of all liability for'
loss of life and damage resulting from
the torpedoing of the Lusitania May !
7, 1915, was signed yesterday by Judge |
Julius Meyer in the admiralty branch l
of the United States District Court, j
The decree halts action on sfxty-four
claims aggregating between $5,000,000 j
and $6,000,000 against the Cunard j
Line and put responsibility entirely i
up to Germany.
The decree holds that "the sinking j
of the steamship Lusitania and the |
consequent loss of life and property ?
were caused solely by the illegal act ?
of the imperial German government, !
through its instrument, the submarine
commander," and adds:
"The petitioner is not liable to any !
extent for any loss, damage or injury, j
nor for any claim whatsoever in any
way arising out of or in consequence
of the unlawful attack by a German
