PANAMA, Aui;. :A:. Appointment of
Professor John F. Hayford, of North?
western university, and Professor Ora
Miner Leland, of Cornell University, by
' hief Justice Taft or the United States
Supreme Court as members- of a com?
mission to i;??* out the boundary he
tween Costa Rica an?."! Panama is op?
posed by the Panama government.
1 fFicials here have advised the State
Department in Washington that Pana?
ma refuses to recognize the validity of
the nominations of the two commis
sione rs.
The note sent to Washington is said
to declare that, as Panama has rejected
the White decision, the arbitration
agreement entered into before that
award was made does not exist. If it
were existent authority from Panama
and Costa Rica would be necessary be?
fore Chief Justice Taft could make
nominations to the commission, it is
asserted.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 26.?State De-!
partment officials intimated to-day!
that continued Panama opposition j
would not prevent the marking of the !
line in accord with the White award. !
Luis Garay, Foreign Minister of ;
Panama, who has been conducting the j
negotiations here, has returned home !
after depositing an official protest ;
with the State Department. The pro- j
test declares th^t Panama "cries to j
heaven against the injustice" to which i
she has been subjected through the

Woman Goes to Cell
Rather Than Submit ;
To Finger Printing;
Taxi Ride With Husband
Ends in Night Court J
Where She Says She Never
Will Give In to Order \
Mrs. Ellen Macklose, an Amazonian [
matron of twenty-five summers, is pre?
pared to spend the rest of her life in
jail rather than submit to having her
iinger-print taken. In fact, she an?
nounced her determination to Magis?
trate W. Bruce Cobb in nfght court last j
night.
Her battle was inaugurated yester- j
day afternoon when 6he and her hus- |
band, Frank, started out on a little j
private jamboree from their home, at !
211 West Sixty-sixth Street. They'
embarked on their adventure aboard a !
roving taxicab. and by the time they I
arrived at Seventy-?fth Street, on !
Fifth Avenue, open hostilities were '
declared upon the taxidriver by the
young couple.
Both quit the taxicab and refused
to pay the fare. This open act of war
attracted a crowd, and finally Patrol- j
man McGrath, of the East Sixty- i
seventh Street station, who took the J
Mackioses to Night Court on a charge i
of disorderly conduct.
To Magistrate Cobb they both ?
pleaded guilty to being intoxicated and j
said they were "out for a good time," j
but were verry sorry.
"Well," said the magistrate, "that!
will mean taking your finger prints."
"I won't have mine taken," an-|
hounced Mrs. Macklose with deter- I
mination. I
"D?.> I understand you mean that?" |
queried the magistrate.
"Well," replied the former, "the only ,
way you'll get them will be over my ''
dead body."
"if yuu don't submit," said Magis- \
trate Cobb, "I will have to send you to !
a cell."
"I don't care if you send me away!
for life," replied Mrs. Macklose, now .
thoroughly aroused. "I have committed
no crime, and I know it. My conscienc?
will tell me when I have committed a
crime, and until then I won't have my ;
ringer print taken."
In the mean time her less heiliger- ?
ent spouse had quietly submitted and.
paid his $5 fine.
Turning to him with a fiery look Mr-:.
Macklose said: "Here, Frank, take this
kej Co home and look after the fiat.
["hey are not going to get my finger
print.'
"Now. madam,'' said the magistrat?;
in a conciliatory tone, "my finger prints I
are on file "
' ?That may be," s ne replied, "but !
they weren't put there for disorderly l
conduct, and you are not going to get '
? ?." j
"Well, then, you will hare to spend'
the night in a cell," said the magis?
trate; "because you are a woman I am'
not going to give you any special con- '
a ?deration.''
Mrs. Macklose went to the cell.

Swindle Gang's
500 Million
Plot Revealed
'Continued from paae anei
rheir hands un while the robbery was
in progress.
Paymaster William O'Toole was
alone in the office when the bandits
entered. The men being paid were
admitted one at a time as their nafres
were called through a window. Sud?
denly O'Toole was confronted by two
men. Failing- to realize at first that
the intruders were robbers, the pay?
master shouted at them to take their
turns and enter singly as ordered.
"Put up you paws!" retorted one
"you ain't givin' orders just, now."
The money intended for the workers
was in two canvas bags. Cine of tue
bandits seized these while the other
kept O'Toole covered with two re?
volvers. The man with the money
backed through the office door, fol?
lowed by his companion, who continued
to cover O'Toole until he reached the
threshold, when he ordered the pay?
master to sit down.
Trio Scatter and Flee
"Now stay there for ten minutes.'
he ordered. "If you make a move be?
fore that time I'll come back and blow
your head off."
The third robber had remained out?
side, holding two revolvers on tht
twenty-five longshoremen. The thre*

in Fortieth Street. One ran towari
Eleventh Avenue and the other towari
the river. The third disappeared be
tween buildings in Fortieth Street.
An alarm was telephoned to Wes
Thirtieth Street police station and de
tectives arrived within a few minute?
Information was hard to obtain be
cause most of those who had witnes.se
the hold-up were in pursuit of its per
petrators. No trace of the three wa
found.
Drew $2,500 From Bank
O'Toole told the police he dre
.'2,500 from a bank to pay hii hel
yesterday before noon. About half th
men had been paid, he thought, whe
the bandits appeared. O'Toole remerr
bered seeing three men in the vicinit
of the bank who seemed to be obsen
ing his actions. He described them r
young, apparently not. more tha
twenty-five years old, wearing ca;
with the peaks pulled down over the
eyes.
It. was said one of the robber? ha
been recognized by a longshoreman.
Thomas Doyle, hotel supply man ?

Brooklyn, was held up yesterday 1
three ?irmed bandits in Fifty-fir
Street, near Bush Terminal docks, ai
robbed of $500 in currency. Two su
pects were captured by Patrolmi
William McMahon, who recovered

ciared he lost.
Hustled Into Coal Yard
Doyle was walking toward the T?
mina! when the three appeared as

When the bandits reached the wat
front they placed their weapons
the head of Neis Nelson, who .

fired four shots, puncturing the bo*

Suspect Identified
McMahon's captive was identified

was James Moran, of 416 War

dpa! for the French gang also was dis?
covered to-day by federal authorities.
The revelations were, contained in a
series of documents taken from Ru?
dolph E. Kohn, head of the American
Rubber Company, a mushroom corpora?
tion which had its birth in a dingy
raincoat -hop in East Sixty-third
Street. The documents included an?
other $500,000 in "air castle" securi?
ties.
Among the documents were a com-'
plete file of letters and telegrams from !
French to Kohn ar..i vice versa, from !
May 27" until August 12 of the present
year. The letters will be used to prove;
that Kohn and French both knew that\
their transactions were illegal, as
through them ail runs a streak of I
grim humor at the "outwitting" of the :
authorities.
On May 17 French acknowledged
receipt of $106,000 worth of Kohn'<*
notes. "It is understood that I have !
full authority to use or cause to bo
used any or all of said notes in any?
way that I deem advisable," th? letter '
says, and then goes on to promise that \
when the notes fall due French will
supply funds to pay them.
Two days later French wired Kohn
that he was on his way to Chicago.
He came, they had a conference and
French returned to Dayton, where he
stopped at the Hotel Miarmi.
On June 0, French sent Kohn two
$5,000 notes on the Mackey Tire &
Truck Company and the R. K. Strobel
Real Estate Company, of Akron. "Am
also sending notes to Strelzin (A. L.
Strelzin, of Milwaukee.," he said. And
then continues: "These notes are;
good."
Sent Notes to Cover Kites
To Strelzin on the same day he en?
closed $20,000 of "Good Akron' paper."
"You car U3e these," Fr?.-nch wrote.
"in covering the 'kite' to Cleveland;
and account to me for what you don't
use. I enclose $6,000 of 'Master Tire
paper.' Endorse this paper, paying a I
bonus on it if necessary. Mail the
M?s'er Tire on Saturday, two Mil?
waukee checks?any Milwaukee checks
will do?one for $3,127.83 and one for j
$2,172 17. Th?* checks must reach them
Monday morning."
On June 12, Strelzin wired French at
Cievelar.d asking for "$10,000 goo?! :
rated paper." French, writing that
night to Kohn, said: "There is no pos?
sibility of me sending him what he <
asks foi !r does not exist. I have,
plenty of notes?but tney are none of ;
them better than th?1 one? ? sent him."'
Then came much discussion of the pro?
posed purchase of a bank in Milwaukee
?the same bank which is now strenu?
ously denying the proposed deal. "1
must make certain that the men who :
go into that bank are men who will do
just what I tell them to do," French
says. "Fishburn, of Los Angeles will
be presiden*. The rest I don't know
?yet."
June 20 French wired Kohn: "Now
promised bank credit from Dayton
Wednesday. Arrange to cover -Strelzin
without fail."
June 22 French was chuckling, yet
raiht-r grieved, over reports given out
at Dayton about him. "One man here
asked for a Dun's report on me last
week," he says. "The only true state- j
ment made in it was that I use private |
cars and spend a great deal of money.
Tt stated that ! was wholly unreliable,,
utterly unworthy of belief or credence
by any one and a very dangerous man j
for any one to have anything to do
with. Hoffr:t7. got a copy of it by |
having it read out loud to himself by!
a Dun's man while a concealed stenog- I
rapher took it down in shorthand. It;
hasn't worked, though. Several very:
good contracts are well under way to-'
night. But?those two checks must not
con:-' hack. That would probably en-J
able the agencies to so discredit me as !
to destroy all that has been done here.;
I know that banks here have received
warning to beware of me themselves!
and to caution customers to have noth?
ing to do with me."
Instruction on Kiting Contracts
Then come the page.? of detailed!
instruct * to Kohn on "kiting con-;
'rae*-'" and then: "Gerber and I spent,
two hours with directors of a large'
manufacturing concern to-day. It
wants at [east $200,000. That will |
make a contract with us for $1,500,000.
We hop?- to get it closed this week. :
These men knew all about Dun's re?
port, but one of them lives :ri Canton
and knows my Mr. Davis very well.
He ridiculed the theory that any friend
of Davis could be wrong, At any
necessary cost or effort held those two
checks in Milwaukee. Whether paid
or not, 1 do not care. But hold then .
Go easy en, the telephone. Operators
are often ordered to listen in on tele?
phone messages to or from me."
From then until June 27 French'*;
letters are full of worry. "Thing- are
hanging by a hair here to-night." he
says in ane of them. And in th?* mean?
time Kohn bad sold a thirty-day note
of the Master Tire & Truck Company,
which had been given to French for
sale for th?- company. The funds had
been used by Kohn. "it will certainly
cause an explosion if that thirty-day ?
note comes here for collection," French
wrote on June 29 "I had no right to
use the two notes for $3,000 each."
Again, on July 1: "There'll be real
trouble here if that, note isn't covered
forthwith ir some way and the second
one cither returned or covered."
On July 3 French is found kiting a
check for the president of the Consoli?
dated Automobile Company for $3,000
to "help him around a corner." And
then some more details on cheek** and1
notes and finally an appeal: "Spare
no effort to get a few thousand for my
expense account."
Hit by Spur-rin Rank Failure
From then until July '21 there ar.
-i score of letters, minutely detailed
advices on the check kiting scheme.
The?* came the failure of the Spurgin
Bank. Kohn wn te this to French: "My
account ?n this bank was opened for the

Prisoner Walks Out a?
Twenty Police Look On
Plumber \.'a.- Awaiting Ar?
raignment on Automobile
Theft Charge
Ignoring the presence of a "ai-? c.r
more policemen and a number of de?
tect ves, Philip Stroke!, a plumber,
thirty-two years old, of 560 West 164th
Street, calmly walked out of the York
ville Court detention room, where he
?.vas awaiting arraignment yesterday,
and escaped.
Strokel was waiting with three other
men to answer a charge that he was
implicated in the theft of an a a
bile owned by Fannie Gorsbel, of Bos
ton, from Forty-second Street and
Madison Avenue, on August 19. De
tectice Coieman, of the automobile
squad, was in charge of the prisoners
and left them only a moment to assist
a fellow detective in another case.
When he returned Stokel had van?
ished. In order to make his getaway
the prisoner had to walk through a
corridor leading to the complaint
room, and go through the complaint
room to a stairway t .> Fifty-sev? nth
.Street.
The other prisoner-, who were cap?
tured with Strokel in Sta rd. Conn.,
were John Hoist, or' BO S a Avenui :
James Farrell, of 'l''> _ esi
Street, and John Ryan,
Street. Hoist assumed al] th? i ... ne
for the theft, saying h? had t;
car and invited the i ther m ;' -.- a
ride. When they were arraigned Mag?
istrate Hatting held them under then
original bail for examination Monday
The police hope to have recap! it
Strokel by that time.

HULL, Aug. 2o (By The Associated
Press1. The recovery from the wreck
of the ZR-2 tj?-day of two more bodies,
those of Albert L. Loftin. an American .
mechanic, and Flight Sergeant A. P.
Martin, of the British crew, and the
rear recovery of another, which slipped
from the mass of wreckage just after
it was brought to the surface, gave
hop?" to thi searchers and officials that
they would soon be able to '"m?i other;
missing members of the crew.
As the salvagers continued their
work another chapter'in the tragedy
was writer, when the coroner's inquest
opened on the bodies o? Lier*
Marcus H. Esterly, of Washington;
Lieutenant. Charles ?,! Little, of New
buryport, Mass., and Lieutenant R. S.
Montague, of the British personnel.
The session, however, was brief, and
after the taking of some evidence *d
journment '?*? as had until October 4.1
The formality enabled the coroner to
issue burial certificates **o that the
'..odies could be taken away. Further
inquiry is impossible at present, owing
to the lack of evidence and tha fact
that th? most important witness. Flight
Lieutenant A. H. Wann, is still in a
hospital, where he must remain, for an
oth r fortnight.
Expresses Sympathy of City
The American air force was repre?
sented by Lieutenants John B. Law?
rence, Joseph B. Anderson and Wil?
liam R. Taylor. A number of British
officers were present. John H. Grout,
the American Consul at Hull, also was
Vice-Coroner Jackson, who presided
over the inquest in the quaint ol?I
Guildhall, opened with an expression
of sympathy on behalf of the court
and the city to the relatives of the
dead in America and England.
Lieutenant Taylor identified the two
Americans in a voice which shook with
emotion. A British air officer identitied
Lie utenant Montague.
One point brought out was that the
airship had never been officially named
ZR-2, but was still the R-38. The
coroner, for the purpose of record,
asked Vice-Admiral A. V. Vivian, of
the British Air Service, about this,
and he replied that she was the R-H8,
to which Lieutenant Taylor, who was
in the box. nodded his head.
From early morning the salvagers

It is reportea by the salvage work?
ers that they have been able to locate
the remains of hut two of the six
gondolas. This leads to the belief that
the violence of the explosion blew the
center gondola to pieces and threw the
others away frcoa the s"?ip and that
the remains of them may be found by
dredging the vicinity of the wreck.
An official announcement issued by
the river and harbor authorities this
morning, which said that the wreck is
488 feet from shore on a shoal, which
at low tide is covered by only two feet
of water, lends proof to thetheoryth.it
the gondolas were destroyed, otherwise
they could be seen at low tide.
River craft have been ordered by the
authorities to keep a sharp look-out

y to Save
Taxes
arsin
As soon as the new Revenue Bill goes into effect. Republican leaders in Congress assure
us that there will be thirty-five dollars more for every family to spend on food or clothes, in
spite of the repeated predictions from government authorities that our tax burdens can only be
shifted, not lifted, the House Ways and Means Committee believe they have found the ways and
means to make a reduction from the present tax schedules, estimated at from six hundred mil?
lion dollars to eight hundred million dollars, chiefly by drastic cuts in expenditures with a mini?
mum change in taxation methods. The Republicans?editors and statesmen- are enthusiastic
over their success in meeting the great popular demand for a lightening of the tax burden. The
Ruffalo Express 'Re}).) declares a good day's work was done by the Ways and Means Com?
mittee in the preparation of this bill. Senator Capper's Topeka Capital (Rep.), which reaches
a large rural constituency, says "a bill that reduces taxes by half a billion dollars, abolishes
'nuisance taxes," cuts travel expenses and gives relief to heads of large families has a good deal
to commend it." The curtailment of expenditures in order to keep taxes down is hailed by the
New York Journal of Commerce as the "first great .?step towards solvency."' On the other hand,
the Democrats contend that the taxpayers' hopes in this bill are illusory, that the chief beneficiary
will be the rich man. and that '"to cut taxes by running in debt'' is simply a "confidence game."
The leading article in THE LITERARY DIGEST this week. August 27th, gives the
expressions of approval and disapproval of the press throughout the country on the present tax
lowering efforts o\' Congress.
