Legislature for High Budget Writes to Prall That He Fought in Vain Against Mandatory Laws That ?lireatt? n Citv Finances Makes Attack on Curran Cheap, Petty Politicians Declare Estimates Dis? honest, Hylan Asserts j In a letter yesterday to Anning S. Prall, president of the Board of Edu? cation, Mayor Hylan again placed the responsibility for the present threat? ening financial condition of the city on the Legislature. He declared that he fought bitterly against the passage of mandato.y legislation, "saying then, as is evidenced now, that it would plunge the city in serious financial difficul? ties." He asked Mr. Prall to revise tho educational budget estimates for 1921 downward. The Mayor assailed Bor? ough President Curran for declaring that the tentative budget is a dishonest one. "The mandatory legislation passed by the Legislature at Albany," said tho Mayor, "burdening the taxpayers of the city with millions of dollars over which the Mayor and the members of the Board of Estimate and Apportionment had T.o control (& great part of which must be included in the 1921 budget), threi tens to raise the proposed budget beyoml the limit allowed by the consti? tution of the state. Attacks Cheap Politicians "I protested and fought bitterly" against the passage of this legislation, saying then, as is evidenced now, that i; would plunge the city in serious financial difficulties.

Liner Passengers Held Because of Smallpox Every One on Board Nieuw Am- ! stordom Vaccinated When Ca?e Is Discovered, in Steerage The Holland-America liner Nieuw Amsterdam, which arrived yesterday from Rotterdam with 2,3.53 passengers, was hold in quarantine throughout the day because a caso of smallpox was dis? covered in the steerage. The patient was removed to Swinburne Island and ?very passenger and the crew of GOO wera vaccinated. Dr. Leland Cofer, Health Officer, said he would make an effort to release the saloon und second cabin passengers to? day, but would hold the vessel until a place was found where the steerage passengers might pass their interval of observation. Dr. Cofer said that the accommoda? tions of Hoffman and Swinburne Isl? ands were taxed to capacity and he had applied to the army transport service for the use of a transport until the congestion of the quarantine quarters on Swinburne and Hoffman islands had been relieved. When all the passen? gers are removed the Nieuw Amster? dam will be fumigated. Among t'.ie saloon passengers on board the liner are Fritz Kreisler, the violinist, and C. Nicolai, of the Chi? cago Opera Company. Hylan Suggests Special Court for N. Y. C. Ouster Important Civic Questions Said to Depend on Regaining Title to River Bank Mayor Hylan yesterday suggested to Corporation Counsel O'Brien that he make application to Governor Smith to assign a justice of a special term of the Supreme Court to hear the ejectment suit brought by the city against the New York Central Rail? road to recover the land now occupied by the railroad along Riverside Drive. The Mayor suggested this procedure in view of the fact that the city recently put in its side of the case before Justice Guy in the Supreme Court, when the court discovered that it had a vested interest in a trust estate which held New York Central securi? ties and therefore was disqualified from trying the case. "All plans for improvement of the freight transportation situation along the Hudson River waterfront arc de? pendent upon recovering possession of the land belonging to the city," said the Mayor. "The West Side 'deuth avenue' track removal matter cannot be settled until this case is disposed of. Possession of its property, the future of the commercial prosperity of the city, proper use of the Hudson River waterfront, elimination of the congestion of streets on the West Side, settlement of the public market ques? tion and saving of human life depend on the final disposal of this litigation. "I would ask that you take this up with the proper authorities and re? quest that a justice be assigned who has no connection with the New York Central, and press the case for im? mediate trial, If you fail to secure a speedy trial make application to Gov? ernor Smith to assign a justice to a special term of the Supreme Court to hear this case." Prisoners Escape on Raft; Near Death From Exposure SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 12.?Attempts of three military prisoners to escape on an improvised log raft from the army disciplinary barracks on Alca ; traz Island, in San Francisco Bay, failed to-day when they were rescued at dawn by a ferryboat, nearly sense? less from submersion and all night ex? posure. According to military officials, the prisoners sawed their way out of the island cell house last night and, after! launching their raft, eluded a swarm of police and government tugs through? out the night. Only 288 Porto Ilieans Refuse U. S. Citizenship Privileges From The Tribune's Washinpton? ?lureau WASHINGTON, Oct. 12.?All Porto Ricnns who have not under oath de? clared their intention of not becoming American citizens have the full privi? leges of citizenship of the United States, the Bureau of Insular Affairs of the War Department announced to? day. Only 288 persons took advantage of the opportunity to refuse American citizenship, and the census of 1920 showed that a large percentage of the 288 have since reconsidered and taken steps to acquire such citizenship. The 1020 census shows Porto Rico to have a population of 1,297,772, an in? crease of l?.l per cent over i910. Ground Broken On $28,000,000 Hudson Tunnel Lieut. Gov, Walker Swings Pick, Gov. Edwards Wields n Shovel at Ceremony Witnessed by Thousands Barrow of Dirt Removed Project to? Link New York With Jersey by Vehicular Route Actually Under Way - With Impressive ceremony, witnessed by thousands who filled the specially constructed grandstand and lined the thoroughfares about the park bounded by Canal, West and Washington streets, Lieutenant Governor Harry C. Walker, representing Governor Smith, and Gov? ernor Edward I. Edwards of New Jer? sey yesterday broke ground for the new j twin tube vehicular tunnel that is to link-the states of New York and New Jersey. I This marked the definite commence | ment of one of the most ambitious | engineering projects ever attempted in | the United States, It is the culmina? tion of a century-long dream for the beginning of operations on a tunnel beneath the waters of the Hudson which wouid forever emancipate the cities on both sides of the river from the many difficulties and shortcomings I of river traffic. Many Notables Speak Executives, officials and prominent "citizens of both states filled the speak? ers* stand. Those who made addresses, I in addition to Lieutenant Governor | Walker and Governor Edwards, wero | Senator William M. Calder, of New i York; Senator Walter E. Edire, of New Jersey; Mayor Hylan, Mayor Frank I Hague of Jersey City and Colonel Will I iam J. Wilgus, chairman of the board ! of consulting engineers of the New | York State Bridge and Tunnel Commis? sion and the New Jersey Interstate Bridge and Tunnel Commission, the two bodies who worked out the plans for the tunnel and will supervise its construction. General George R. Dyer, chairman of the New York commission, presided. A parade of New York nnd-?s?ew Jer ? sey troops?the escorts of Lieutenant I Governor Walker and Governor Ed i wards ? preceded the ceremony of ! breaking ground. During the cere j mony the troops were lined along i Canal and nearby streets in impressive ! array. Governor Edwards and the. official | party of the New Jersey Interstate I Bridge and Tunnel Commission assem ' bled at the 4th Regiment Armory in I Jersey City before noon and came over 1 to Manhattan accompanied by a battal ? ion of infantry from the 4th Regiment, j New Jersey National Guard, and a ' squadron of cavalry from the Essex j Troop. The party and escort proceeded to the 71st Regiment Armory, Thirty , fourth Street and Fourth Avenue, I where they were received by Genera^, ! Dyer. The 71st Regiment comprised: : the escort of Lieutenant Governor I Walker. The procession left the 71st Regi | ment Armory at 2 o'clock. A etjuad of \ mounted police accompanied the troops. I The arrival of the official parties in automobiles at the park was the signal for an outburst of cheering, mingled with the strains of military bands and the band of the New York Street Clean? ing Department. New Era of Development All the speakers emphasized the great I significance carried by the tunnel proj? ect to the commerce, welfare and gen , eral relations of the states of New York and New Jersey, and particularly to the i cities of New York and Jersey City. They predicted that the construction of the tunnel, which would greatly facili? tate traffic across the Hudson and would bring into closer touch the great rail? way terminal on the Jersey side with the piers of Manhattan, would mark a new era in the development of the Port of New York and would thus affect its relations not onlv with the country at large, but with the whole world. "One of the greatest treaties ever enacted within the boundaries of our Republic," said Lieutenant Governor Walker, "is that between the states of New York and New Jersey calling into being the two commissions for the con struction of this tunnel. Undoubtedly one of the most profitable investments, financial and commercial, ever made will be the $28,000,000 it is estimated the tunnel will cost. I believe the time is not far distant when thiB tunnel will be followed by others." Senator ('alder spoke of the identity of interests of the states of Now York and New Jersey and declared that the successful completion of the tunnel ! will lend stimulus to additional proj? ects designed to link up tho commer? cial and economic life of the two com? monwealths, not only to their mutual advantage but to the advantage of the ! whole naticyi. Governor Edwards predicted an era | of unprecedented development for New i York and New Jersey as a result of , tho tunnel project and congratulated ' the people of both states upon the be- '] ginning of the work. Mayor Hylan dwelt; at length upon ' the commercial advantage that will , accrue to both states. Ho predicted that the tunnel will prove a vital fac'or in the reduction of the cost of living in New York by bringing the metropolis closer to the markets of New Jersey and liberating it from j many of the disadvantages of cross- i river traffic. Following tho addresses, Lieutennnt Governor Walker and Governor Ed? wards broke ground for the tunnel. Under the cheers of the thousands o .' assembled guests and the clicking of motion picture and other cameras, Mr. Walker swung his pick and Governor Edwards worked his shovel. In not more than five minutes they had filled an iron wheelbarrow with Manhattan clay and begun the work. m Thompson Stays in Race On Prohibition Ticket Will Not Dodge Issues in the Campaign for Governor, He Says Senator George F. Thompson, of Niagara County, in a two-column state? ment last night, announced that he will stay in the race for Governor as the candidate of the Prohibition party. Senator Thompson in the Republican primaries received 143,000 votes. The Senator's statement says in part: "I have been asked whether I am to continue the campaign. My answer is: I have been nominated and will not commence now to dodge an issue or compromise a principle. "The people understand that the bosses and the influences in control of the Republican party do not intend \<> compromise. These influences expect and openly boast that the na>ftonal situation will pull them through this time. They intend to use this oppor? tunity and try at any cost to make their position permanent by the re? peal of the direct primary law. Their platform has pledged their candidate to it. "What does tho Democratic party offer? First, a complete, open, arro? gant, un-American and disloyal policy of nullification of the fundamental law, the Constitution of the United States; a continuance of Nixon as a Public Service Commissioner; a con? tinuance of the up-state Public Service Commission's delays in rate fixings; failure to make the New York Central keep its contract; non-interference with the cement trust, whose product is necessary for concrete roads; ignor? ing ballot box cheats and the practices exposed in the Comptroller's office; failure to really investigate conditions in state departments; arguments witn the Republican candidate on national issues without enlightening the people as to where either stands." Detective's Aceuser Arrested Woman Witness Against Gunson Charged With Vagrancy As she was about to enter a taxi with a man at Forty-fifth Street Bnd Broadway early yesterday morning, Ruth Cole, who gave her address as 228 West Ninety-fourth Street, was ar? rested on n charge of vagrancy by De I tectives Sheehan, Levine and Moog, of S Inspector Boettler's staff.

Bedtime Stories Busier Bear Forgets All His Troubles By Thornton W. Burgess Never mind what's gone before Nor what you think may lie altead; Just make the most of what you have; The present is. The past is dead. ?Buster Bear. -. Greedy eagerness filled the little eyes of Buster Bear as he stood up and put his great arms around the dead tree, which was tho second Bee? ilte Farmer Brown's boy had found. It was a very old tree, and it had be? n dead a long time. Also Buster knew by the sound when he struck it that '?? it was hollow for most of its length. i It was a tree to pull or push over Bnd ? not to climb. Buster hooked his great claws into i it and pulled with all his great ! strength. He heard tho dead old roots j creak and crack. Then he pushed with I all his might. So, pulling and pushing : and pushing and pulling. Buster worked j and the tree swayed this way and that ! way. It creaked and cracked and snapped, and finally over it went with a crash that split it right open. Right then and there Buster Bear i forgot all his troubles. Yes, sir, Buster i Bear forgot all his trouble?. He forgot ! everything but the feast before him. i You see, when that hollow tree split j open Buster found it packed--simply ! packed?with masses of honcy-iilled i comb. Talk about greediness! You i should have seen Buster Bear. With his great paws he scooped out J honeycomb dripping with honey and I crammed it into his mouth. With it I went a lot of bees, but Buster didn't ; mind. He didn't mind in the least. i He ate comb, honey, bees and all. Of ! course he was stung, for of course I those bees were aroused and angry. ? But it was night and cold, and they were cold and confused. Buster paid ' no attention to them at all. He didn't j mind them any more than if they had been so many tiny black flies. He could have stood ten times as many stings for the sako of that delicious golden honey. To be sure, h. growled a little and whined a little when no was stung on somo particularly tender place, but he would simply ?.'.up at that place with a sticky paw and go right on stuffing himself. Such a sight as he was! Honey we? smeared all over his fnce and paws and over a good part of his coat, for that matter. But he didn't caro.' No, sir, he didn't care. He was happy, as I happy as it is possiblo for a Bear ever to be. Could you have watched | He ate comb, honey, bees and all him you _ertainly would have thought that he must be hollow all the way through. For once he had all the honey he could eat, and he intended to make the most of it. There was no doubt about that; he intended to eat every bit of it. And he did, too. He kept right on eating even after his stomuch hnd be? gun to swell out like a balloon. He ate and ate until there wasn't a particle of honey left. Bits of stick and dead leaves went into his greedy mouth, but he didn't seem to mind. He didn't even take the trouble to <jp.!_ them out. At last there wasn't a drop of honey left. Buster drew a long breath, licked off his coat and paws as well as he could, and then began to think of a nap. You know a full stomach always makes one sleepy. Being so full, he was uncomfortable. He didn't feel at all like moving about. And so he simply walked to the nearest thicket of young hemlock trees, and there, with a great siph of contentment, he lay down and in no timo at all was sound asleep. Copyright. 10?0, by T. W.
