and argument in the world generally
fail to disturb voters casting their!

New Tax Rate
2.85, Increase
Of 37 Points
City Budget $347,203,878,',
Which Is 373,500,000
More Thau Last Year:
Reaches the Legal Limit
School Board Hit Hard
Granted $40,000,000 Less
Than Was Asked; State
Must Provide the Balance
The city budget for 1921 will be
$347,203,878, as compared with $273.- !
689,485 this year. This will mean a !
tax rate for next year of 2.85. It is |
2.4S in Manhattan at present. Comp?
troller Charles L. Craig informed the
budget committee of the Board of Es- !
t?mate, at the close of its deliberations
on the tentative budget last night, that .
theso figures were the absolute limit ;
of t'^e city's power to raise money for j
the budgetary expenses for 1921.
"We are going the limit," said the
Comptroller, "and this figure is the :
limit. The final budget for 1921 will
stand at $347,203,S7S, when it is adopt- j
cd by the Board of Estimate on Octo- !
bor 31."
In order to brinir the budget down
to the constitutional limit, the com?
mittee last niVht adopted a method by !
which the Department of Education
will have to look to the state,'rather
than the city, for about half of iis !
budget estimate for running expenses ?
and teachers' salaries next year. Thej
committee agreed that the city could ?
do no more next year for the Educa- i
tional Department than to limit itself j
to the. appropriation required by the ,
state law" of 4.9 mills on the total j
assessment valuations of realty and I
Legislature Muet Supply Balance
The? Board of Education, on this
basis, will ret $43,720,880 from the '??
city, according to the Comptroller, in- [
stead of the $66,677,142 requested for j
teachers' salaries and $17,349,320 re- !
quested for other than personal ser- !
vice, a total of $82.026,402. It will be ;
up to the next Legislature to raise the i
difference by some new or augmented ]
form of taxation.
The Comptroller explained that any- !
thing that was left over in the ulti- !
mate budget, after cutting the city de- |
partment requests down to existing ;
conditions and providing for the 4.9- ;
mills educational tax, would go to the j
Educational Department. With a good I
deal of slicing yet to be done before i
the final budget is reduced to the legal !
limit of $347,203,878. it was conceded |
that it was very unlikely that there i
would be anything additional left for ?
the Department of Education beyond ?
the absolute legal requirement.
The situation probably never has I
risen before in the history of the city, j
it was said, when the 4.9 mills educa- j
tional tax, with a reasonable amount
added, could not be met by the city for '
educational expenses. But on account \
of the enormous estimates and requests
made by the city departments for next
year, it was explained, the city could
not meet the requirements next year.
Taxpayers I'ay the Bill Anyway.
Asked if the method of calling upon
the state to supply the $40,000.000
needed would not amount to "passing
the buck" to the Legislature and
amount to the same thine; as far as the
taxpayers in this city were concerned,
who would merely have to pay a larger
state tax instead of a higher city tax,
the Comptroller declared that there
probably was little difference in terms
o? dollars and cents.
He said, however, that this was not a
fair way to put it, as the state had
taken away from the city millions of
dollars in personal assessments by re?
strictions which went to swell the
state income tax. He declared further
that the state had already provided

Indians Tie
Series With
5-1 Victory
?Knock Cadore and Ma
maux From Box, While
Robins Get but 5 Hits Off
Coveleskie's Damp Ball
Marquard Called In
When Game Is Lost
Dodgers' Run Is Scored
on Johnston's Single
and Griffith's 2-Bagger
By W. O. McGeehan
CLEVELAND, Oct. 9.?The Cleveland
Indians almost ruined lour of your
Uncle Wilbcrt Robinson's best pitchers
and took the fourth game of the world's
series in this city to-day by the score of
5 to 1. The series is even once more
and at the current writing it begins
to look like about the evenest series
that ever was played.
The Dodgers only got to Coveleskle,
the spitting Pole, once, when Jimmy
Johnston's single, followed by Tommy
Griffith's two-bagger, brought in the
only Dodger run. The Pole spat, the
ball spattered and the Dodgers swung.
But in the meantime the Indians were
mauling Lieutenant Leon Cadore and
young Mamaux. They chased both of
them in rapid succession, and the vet?
eran, .Richard do Marquis Marquard,
went in for a spell. Richard or Reuben
was the only effective looking boxman
in the outfit, and he puzzled the Indians
until he was relieved for a pinch hitter
and Big Jeff Pfeifer wound it up.
Begin? to Look Like a World's Series
For the first time this thing began to
look like a world's series rind sound like
one. It was the first world's series
K?me ever played in this place. They
have been waiting for it since 1879, and
they seemed to be thoroughly apprecia?
tive. All the things that were missing
in Brooklyn were here, the pop-eyed en?
thusiasm, the raucous squawk and the
folks who sat up all night to get into
the bleachers.
It was a warm and misty afternoon,
and there ?eemed to be no scientific rea?
son why the soupbones of Robbie's box
men should get wrong, but they did. The
Indians got to Lieutenant Cadore for
two runs in the very first inning and
had a couple of hits against him in the
second when Mamaux went in to daz?
zle the Indians with his speed.
Kube Has Weight on His Mind
_ But the Indians wouldn't be dazzled.
They chased the speed boy out in the
third and the hurry call was sent for
Rube Marquard. Now Rube has a
weight on his mind. Early in the day
he had caught the profiteering spirit
of landlords an?! other business men
and he started to go into business for
himself, selline box seat tickets. A
couple of gents in plain clothes it is
alleged stopped the Rube's ;ush of
business and were, hurrying him into
a common hoozegow or place of con?
finement where he couldn't even see
the series. But friends intervened
and got the Rube away. Otherwise
the Indians might have had a lot more
runs. Rube stopped them while he was
in there and nobody else seemed able
to do it.
Coveleskie caused the Dodgers quite
as much annoyance as his brother
Poles caused their neighbors, the Rus?
sians. Just 5 hits off Mister Ctanis
laus was the best that the Dodgers
could pull. The shifting of the Dodger
pitching stalf was a constant problem
to Speaker, who has two batting orders
one left-handed and one right-handed,
but Coveleskie had the Flatbush fusil
eers guessing to the end. The ?oca!
bugs were a bit timorous until the final
inning, but they had no reason to be
The Coveleskie legend, "If you don't gel
the Pole in the first few inning3 yoi
won't get him at all," held true.
Uncle Wilbert Blames .Iin\
Uncle Wilbert Robinson is incliner'
to attribute to-day's disaster to the
presence of a certain jinx that trailct
the Yanks to their doom here and else
where during the rush of the Americar
League season, The jinx showed up jusi
as Uncle Robbie was finishing hi?
breakfast and he tame to the park, de
spite all protests.
If you should get word that Unclt
Robbie has slain a certain apparently
affable old gent, do not think harshlj
of him. It will be shown befe?! anj
jury that it was a justifiable homicide
The fourth game was played in pet
feet baseball weather. It was a warm
hazy afternoon, and for the first tim?
during the current series there wa;
something like the old enthusiasm. Th<
Cleveland bugs were having their lirs
world's series and they were makinc
the most of it. The shadow of thi
scandal of last year's series did no
penetrate these regions.
The Indians trotted into their field it
their white home uniforms n icol;
starched, and from the crowded bleach
era there came .a roar reminiscent o

Against Russian:
Soviet Regime:
Great Insurrection Launched
in Nij ni-Novgorod1,
Where Masses Have Pro?

Woman Among Leaders!
Outbreak Said to Endan?
ger Transport of Food
and Fuel for Moscow
WARSAW, Oct. 9 (By The Associated :
Press).?A new insurrection against the ?
Russian Soviet government has broken
out in the district of Nijni-Novgorod, ;
265 miles northeast of Moscow, accord-1
ing to information reaching the Rus-j
Rlan colony in this city. The insurrec-!
tion, which was inaugurated by the
Social Revolutionary Party, embraces!
great masses of peasants, and is re-1
ported to be spreading rapidly in all
directions. |
The insurgents, the advices say, have \
proclaimed a new government, the ?
members of which are Mm. Martow, ;
Petrowski and Czernow, and Mlle, j
Maria Spiridonova, the Intter the noted
woman revolutionary leader, for years I
active in the movement against the I
imperial r?gime.
The insurrection is said to be en?
dangering the transport of food and
fuH 'to Moscow from eastern Russia.1
The insurgents are declared to be
acting indopendently of General
Wrangel o? any of the other counter?
revolutionary movements. They are
planning to set up their capital at
Workmen Becoming Desperate.
Persistent rumors of revolts against
the Bolshevist government have been
received recently from points close to
the borders of Soviet Russia. The .re?
ports are supposed to describe condi?
tions which have resulted directly from
the military defeat suffered by the !
Bolshevik armies in Poland, the grow- '
ing discontent in the army and the ex?
tremely serious economic situation in
the Russian cities.
It is known that from the economic
point of view the Russian people are ;
facing a winter of suffering and priva- ?
tion which bids fair to exceed even j
the terrible conditions of the last two i
winter.-;. Recent reports brought out
from Russia, particularly those of
members of the delegation of the Inde?
pendent German Socialists, indicated
that the workmen in the cities were
growing desperate and are determined
to force a radical political change.
The willingness of the Bolsheviki to j
accept peace on Poland's terms is re
garded as another indication of seri- |
ous conditions within Russia and is
believed to have been prompted on the j
part of the Bolshevik government to
divert its military forces for the,
strengthening of the home fronts.
It. is considered improbable by ob- '
servers that any attempt at revolution ;
can succeed unless the aid of the rail?
way and munition workers is enlisted.
It 'is known that the railway workers j
have long been opposed to the Bolshe- ;
vik government, and in the event of ?
a concerted movement against it may |
aid the movement by refusing to carry ?
Bolshevik troops to affected territo- |
ries. ,
Army's Condition Reported Serious, j
Strikes bv workmen of all classes
also are known to have been in prog-!
ress recently. The condition of the ?
Red army is also reported to be seri- i
ous. Large masses of soldiers have
beer, reported demanding the cassa-!
tion of all military activities and the I
return to peace. The defection of large
bodies of troops from the Bolsheviki,.
as reported in some dispatches, if true, !
may prove of groat assistance to those
elements who are now reported to be
at the head of the new rebellion. These ;
elements have nothing in common with
the faction of General Wrangel in
Soutn Russia, or with any faction con- '
nected with the defunct Kolchak and;
Denikine movements. L. Martoff and

sheviki and Social Revolutionists, re

To Curb Erin
At All Costs
Order Must BeRestored by
Methods However Stern,
He Says; Cannot Grant
Dominion Home Rule
Sees Conscription
Forced on England
Fears Possible Irish Army
and Civil War; Defends
Police for Reprisals
By Frank Getty
From rhc Tribune's European Bureau
Copyright, 1920, N'ew York Tribune Inc.
LONDON, Oct. 9.?Premier Lloyd
George, addressing a large gathering
of bis fellow-Welshmen at Carnarvon
to-day on the Irish question, declared
that the nation "must restore order in
Ireland by methods however stern."
' The government must proceed with
its measure for the complete self
government of Ireland," the Prime
Minister said, adding that it could not
give Ireland dfminion home rule. That,
ho said, would mean conscription in
England. Ireland under dominion rule,
he explained, might impose conscrip?
tion and raise an army of half a mil?
lion men, and then England would have
to follow suit. Besides, he said, Ire?
land demanded an absolutely separate
republic. Ulster would not have that
republic, and therefore he did not
want to negotiate peace with civil war
at the very door. The present Home
Rule bill would give Ireland every op?
portunity and "facility, Mr. Lloyd
George asserted, to manage its own
domestic affairs.
Defends Police Reprisals
The Prime Minister's keynote of re?
storing order in Ireland was linked
with a defense of the reprisals carried
out by the Royal Irish Constabulary,
lie offered a double defense for the
police. In the first place, he said, they
did not bomb houses and shoot men
without provocation. He recalled that
2.'J,8 policemen hud been shot, 109 of
them dead, and their patience had
given way, with the result that they
hit back in reprisal. In the second
place, the Premier argued, if there wan
war in Ireland, as is contended, then
the war must be waged on both sides
Mr. Lloyd George insisted that "the
murdrous gr,ng now dominating th?
country must be broken up, because
we cannot permit the country to fall
into anarchy."
CARNARVON, Wales, Oct. 9. (Bj
The Associated Press). ?- Premiei
Lloyd George in a fighting speech tc
his Welsh constituents to-day turnee
down dominion Home Rule, protesting
against the suggestions that the gov?
ernment should go further than did
Gladstone, or Asquith, "not because
Ireland needs it, not because it is fall
to the United Kingdom, but becaust
crime has been successful."
Mr. Lloyd George sai?! he could un?
derstand and sympathize with the ides
that self-government should be giver
because it would bring good will, but
not because a "gang of assassins hac
bul ied the government into it."
No one wanted to manage Ireiand':
dome tic affairs, Mr. Lloyd George said
but dangerous weapons ! ike armies an?
navies were better under the contro
of the Imperial Parliament, and th<
government would resist any attemp
to give lrclan?! a separate navy ant
Discusses Killing of Policemen
Referring to the killing of police?
men, r?!r. Lloyd George said:
"While these murders were going oi
I never read a word of protest fron
the Sinn Fein in Ireland. Mr. Ar
thur Griffiths (founder of the Sim
F?in), a very abl?' and distinguishei
Irishman, communicated to the prea:
of the United States and, I believe
to the English press an interview th?
other day in which he showed grea
concern at the prospect of what hi
thought was going to be an attacl
upon his own life. I do not believ?
there is any attack being concerte?
against his life, but I never saw i
word from Arthur Griffiths displayini
any indignation at the killing of 10'
The Premier said that if there wa
a state of war in Ireland it would giv
the soldiers and policemen a fai
chance and the- would give a good ac
count of themselves. He demande?
whether the police were to stand to b
shot (?own like dogf. without any at
tempt to defend themselves, and de
clared it was more than human n'atur
could tolerate.
The Premier charged that Irelan
had assisted the German submarin
campaign, and de'clared that, althoug
little had been said about it, Irel,an
was Great Britain's worry during th
war. Had any one ever proposed sue
lunacy, he demanded, as to aiiow Ir<
land to obtain her independence, wit
h?>r own army and navy, and her Ci
pacity for assisting Great Britain
enemies ?

WASHINGTON, Oct. 0.?Another
: White House campaign statement will
i be issued within a short time, probably
i to-morrow night for release in Monday
I morning papers, it was intimated to

the peace conference to the Rumanian
and Serbian peace delegates on the
i point of guaranteeing rni itary aid in

i retary Tumulty professed not to know.
Questioned about the accuracy of a
i persistent report that the President
I had received an official copy of his
i remarks from Ambassador Wa'laee at
? Paris, Mr. Tumulty stated he did not
i know, but "hoped it was true," adding,
i "and when it is received I hope the
President will malee it public."
The report was that the President
had instructed the State Department
yesterday to cable Ambassador Wallace
at Paris for a complete report of that
portion of his statement at the peace
conference which has been brought to ;
public notice by Senator Seiden P. '
Spencer, o? Missouri. The cabled rep.y ;

From a Staff Correspondant
OKLAHOMA* CITY, Okla., Oct. 9.?
Senator Harding declared in a speech
here to-night that while America's
"single track" leader has been en?
gaged in welding the entire human
race into a model state, other nations,
notably Great Britain, with cold prac?
tical eyc3 on the future, have seized
control of the world's petroleum sup?
ply. He said there is danger Ameri?
cans may be shut out from equal op?
portunity in this industry which they
?rave to the world.
"In some directions," paid Senator
Harding, "our resources cannot be re?
lied on to serve us indefinitely. I re?
fer to petroleum and its various
products. We are here at the capital
of the great, new, wonder state that
?3 the world's metropolis of petroleum
"The simple fact is that we must
turn again, now, after an excursior
into the realnid of lofty and, no doubt
most ennobling idealism, to a nationa
consideration of some very plain prac
ticahilities of life. The plain fact is thai
while our government has been- at
tempting to organize a state of so
ciety embracing the entire human race
in which wars should forever be im
possible, other great states have beei
looking about for the means to domi
nate the petroleum production of th
world, because of their conviction tha
in the control of petroleum they migh
find the power to control the com
merce, the trade, the industry of th
twentieth century world.
Other Nations Wide Awake
"Surely it must ?jive pause to thos
of us who would like to take a reason
ably practical view of the actual fact
in this world," the Senator added, "t?
note that while our administration ha
been trying to impose its own copy
righted style of altruism upon all th
world, the other great government
have been engaged in something ver;
much like a scramble for the contre
of petroleum resources everywhere. W
have seen Mesopotamia and Bukt
Trinidad antl Royal Dutch, the Eas
Indies, Persia, Colombia and Mexict
all falling into the hands or und;:r th
influence of British oil interests. Ou
own engineers, operators and capital
ists face the danger of being barre
out of a chance for fair participatio
in future developments."

from all corners of the state, wit

When the signal board in the offices

I alarm in the offices of the Isaac Men
! delson Company, silk merchants, on
; the ninth floor of the building at 44-60
j East Twenty-third Street, had not been
set, two operatives were sent to in

A few minutes later Walter Miller
and Martin McNamara, investigators
! for the Holmes company, opened a
: door of the Mendelson offices and found
the body of Isaac Mendelson on the
floor. The door of an immense steel
safe was ajar.
.Miller and McNamara instantly con
' eluded that there had been murder and
? robbery. They made no further inves
? tigation, but rushed to the ground floor
and asked George Riehey, a patrolman,
i to send in a murder alarm. Reserves
! from the East Tewnty-second Street
? station and a squad of detectives un
? der John O'Nei)' were hurried to Union j
i Square and the building was sur- I
| rounded.

floor as they had approached the Men

: advised that his wife be notified. Dr.
Charles E. Norris. chief medical ex

duo to poisoning, although the note
revealed no motive for the act.

.Max Liebeskind, an insurance broker,
: of 198 Broadway, and a brother-in-law
of Mendelson, told the police tilat the
j silk merchant'.; fortune mounted into
? several millions of dollars. Liebes?
kind offered no theory for the suicide,
! but, accordinc to the police, other rel
! ntives of the dead man said h ! r icent

Mendelson was forty-ei^ht years old.

Says President Has Held
Up Peace of World Since
Armistice and Has Failed
to Meet All Great Tests
Party Responsibility
Called Major issue
Tells Indianapolis Clnfr
Executive Has Sought t?i
Ignore Half of People
Frircial Dispatch to The Tribvna
bert C. Hoover, in n:? first speech of
the campaign in srS.-xli of the Re?
publican national :?cket, made be?
fore a large audience of Republican
men and women at the Columbia
Club to-day, .said that the major is?
sue of the campaign is party respon?
sibility, that "the present Adminis?
tration has made a failure and
should be retired." Discussing the
League of Nations, he said the Re?
publican party has pledged itself to
"undertake the fundamental mission
to put into living being the principle
of an organized association o? na?
tions for the preservation of peaoe."
John C. Ruckelshaus, president ?if.
I the Columbia Club, presented James
? K. Lilly, of Indianapolis, as chair
i man of the meeting. Mr. Lilly intro
? duced the speaker.
Throughout Mr. Hoover's remarks on
the League of Kations there was lib
j eral applause. Mr. Hoover said the
I Administration, since the signing of
; the armistice, had been a failure "by
! all the tests we can apply." In it
; decision to ignore one-half of the peo
i pie of the country and make p< ace
? alone, the speaker added, lay the be
! ; lining of its failure in statesman
; ship.
I The Democratic party had failed in
! its responsibility. Mr. Hoover said, and
?"ha?, at least for the present, ceased
to function." He added that "to hare
c-bstinately held up the peace of the
? world for eighteen months, to have r>
? jected the opportunity of amicable ad
I justment of differences as to methods,
! to have projected the issue which,
with intelligent cooperation, would
never have existed, into the Presiden?
tial election, is the greatest failure of
American statesmanship since the Civil
War. . . . The solemn referendum
is not on the league. It is on the fail?
ure of the Democratic party."
Committed to Association
Mr. Hoover said he was committed
to seme sort of league, and believed
that some articles of the present doc?
ument must be abandoned irrrd sono?
modified. He said that the principle of
organized action of nations to prevent
war would not vanish. To the formu?
lation of a program to work out such
a principle the Republican party
and nominee were pledged, the
speaker said. If tne Republican party
fails to carry out its pledge to pr?vido
peace in terms that establish organized
association to prevent war, "it should
and must pay the penalty for that fail?
ure which we demand must be paid by
! tiie Democratice party."
? Continuing, ?,ir. louver said:
"There is in this election an over?
riding issue of which the ?|Ui'stions of
i the' league or 'a' league, of a 'tariff
I for protection' or a 'tariff for revenue'
i .ire but a part. The major issue to-day
and for tne future of our country is
; party responsibility. I am con
' that t - on the
American people are raising a m? si
fundamental question o.i our form of
government, and that ;s the conduct and
rseponsibility of political parties. Not
since 1860 has there been such a loose
nesg of party ties, such a hick of con?
fidence in party machinery and meth
ods, Buch a searching scrutiny of part}
promises and pui poses.
"The Democratic party has failed li
its responsibilities. The Kepublicai
I party has made certain definite prom
Tses to the- country if it be placed ii
government. The question at issue is
shall the political parties be made t
i assume responsibility for their action
! and promises, both now and in th
j future '.'
"Our form of government is base
; upon the expression through the ballu
[ of the will of the majority. Althoug
'our Constitution rrtakes no proviMo
. for them, we have found by practics
experience over our entire national lif
that we can give this expression 'il
through party organization. Th!
i political need goes deeper than Amer
can experience.
Penalties of Failure.
"The ability to change the goven
ment and its policies by orgain/.e?! p?
litical parties giving an opportunity i
; the voice of the majority is the sub^t
tute democracy has discovered for t!
violence of revolution. Therefore >
ours is a government that must 1
; based on parties, it is fundamental th
when a party fai's in statesmanship i
fails to carry out li? promises it mu
t accept the penalties of tl,at failure;
: should be retired, that its leadersh
? may be reformed. This is the real issu
and is immensely more deeply seat
[ than superficial partisanship.
"No more dangerous thing can coi
to us than such a failure of our gr<
I parti? s a? will create a field for thi
party growth. If we are to susU
party government, if we are to k?
tw?, dominant parties in the field, c
parties when in power mu't carry ?
their promises, must succeed n ?^ffici?
g trernment, must find solution for i
ttonal difficulties, must march in pr?
ress with the times, must represent '
will of tht maj'H ity.
Administration a Failure
"I believe that since the armist
< the nresent Administration has mi
, a failure by all the tests that we
apply No man would be so narrow
to condemn the patriotism of one-1
\ of his countrymen. A large part of
