In Behalf of AI Smith
Says Former Governor Is for

o'clock this afternoon before women
members of the committee at the home
of Mrs. David Houston, 8G3 Park Ave?
nue, in behalf of Alfred E. Smith's

! the Council for Immigrant Education.
"Mr. Smith ought to be and must be
; the next Governor of New York," Miss
j Perkins said la.t night. "There is no
| other man in the state so well fitted
for the work. I have observed him as
j a majority leader on the floor of the
j Assembly and as Governor. He knows
; the needs of the state and how best
to fill them.
"It is not necessary for Mr. Smith
to .make promises as to what he will
do if elected, everybody knows what
he will do. His policy is the activo
espousal of legislation for the improve?
ment of conditions in industrial em?
ployment and in the care of women and
"Mr. Smith is responsible in a larger
measure than any one else for the pas?
sage of legislation in 1913 that com?
pelled better and safer factory con?
struction, sanitation and fire protec?
tion. He is also responsible for the
laws that forbid night work for

New Dial Call
Puts Damper on
Pilone Temper
Automatic Instruments in
Pennsylvania Exchange
Prove Success on First
Day of Operation
Little Chance of Error
Innovation Brings the Word
"Dial" Into Use as New
Verb in English Language
Telephone subscribers served by the
machine switching apparatus in the
Pennsylvania central office have ac?
commodated themselves to the new dial
system of calling numbers with typical
New York acceptance of innovations.
The apparatus was officially placed in
service by the New York Telephone
Company at midnight on Saturday,
when H. F. Thurher. president of the
company, dialed tho first rail.
Sunday saw the new system serving
a number of the larger hotels, includ?
ing the Waldorf, Pennsylvania and Mc
Alpin and the pay stations in the. Penn?
sylvania Terminal, but tr?nerai use of
the 1,700 linos transferred to machina
switchers begins with the opening of
business W-day.
Tho weeks during which the company
carried on nn intensive educational
campaign among the subscribers affect?
ed by tho change proved .well spent on
the showing of the first day's experi?
ence with the dial appartus. For the
most part, the company's engineers
said, those who had occasion to use the
i new phones showed themselves familiar
with the dial system and had no dif
| ficulty in getting their numbers.
The use of machine switching cen?
trais is expected to bring about a
marked decrease in cases of "telephone
temper." One of the most important
advantages of the system is its exact?
ness; the percentage of error is neg?
ligible. If a number is correctly dialed
it follows as a mutter of course that
the proper connection will be made or
the busy signal received, if the line is
in use. Perspiring waits in stuffy
booths, wrong numbers, crossed wires
and all the other irritants seem to
have been relegated to New York's
telephone past as far as the Pennsyl?
vania exchange is concerned.
In the new machine switching offiVe
in West Thirty-sixth Street the intri?
cate apparatus was going about its
business way yesterday with uncanny
precision. Over the multitude of wires
and conections which stretch in a ma?e
on rows of steel frames slender brass
rods were selecting trunk lines and
subscribers' wire* in obedience to elec?
trical impulses imparted by the dial?
ing operation.
Makes New Verb
Just why these brass rods stopped
at the number dialed and didn't move
an additional sixteenth of an inch to
some other number was unintelligible to
the Tribune reporter despite the pains?
taking explanations of the company's
Fortunately it is not essential that
each technical detail of the dedicate
apparatus be mastered in order to use
the dial phone correctly. The reporter,
invited to "dial a call," realized that
a new verb has been added to every?
day speech, for one no longer "makes
a call"; one "dials" it. So he pro?
ceeded to call the Tribune office,
Beekman 3,000, first inserting his fin?
ger in the dial opening above the letter
B, swinging it around to the stop mark
and permitting it to rotate back, then
E and then E again. The first three
letters of the central office name
which appear in heavy type in the tele?
phone directory must be dialed in this
fashion and then the numerals.
Within a second or two after the
I dialing of the numerals 3 0 0 0 had
been completed the buzz-buzz of the
ringing signal was heard, followed
almost, immediately by the answer of
the operator at the Tribune switch?
board. The cajl had been completed
j in a few seconds.
5,000 Calls in Hour
This experience will bo typical of
I the new service, the telephone engi
! neers say. Until all exchanges are
i equipped with the machine switchers
| epecially designed apparatus will be
j required to transfer calls from the au
| tomatic system to the switchboards
j which are still operated by hand, and
(vice versa.
Before making the change from local
j to machine operation on Saturday
night duplicate wire connections had
bc*n made at the terminals of the lines
to. be transferred. Tiny brass wedges
i had been placed in the connections on
I the automatic board and on a given
i signal at 11:55 these were pulled out
and electrical life passed from the old
I board into the new<
j During the peak of the day's tele?
phone business it is expected that 1>V)00
calls will pass over the new lines in
an hour, although for the first day or
I'two an even greater rush of calls is
! anticipated from those who it is ex
Ipected will want to try the new system.

Mum9s the Word, if Any, on
That Barnegat Pirate Gold
Who Compared Cap'A Thompson to Capt. Kidd?
It Makes Business Bad for Reporters, for the
Captain Taught the Sphinx to Do His Stuff
By Frederick B. Edwards
BARNEGAT, N. J., Oct. 15.?There
are two things that absolutely are not
being done on Cap'n Walter Thomp?
son's farm on the Bay Road here.
You mustn't ask Cap'n Thompson
about the pirate gold and you mustn't
refer to him as Captain Kidd.
These restrictions are likely to
cramp the style of the earnest in?
quirer. There is very little to be
learned about the buried treasure on
the Thompson- place that has not al?
ready been learned and reported upon.
When Cap'n Thompson is asked
questions about the gold he acts like
the man who taught the Sphinx to do
-its stuff.
That leaves only young Walt Ridge
way. Young Walt is willing to talk,
I some; not very much. Young Walt
| says Cap'n Thompson doesn't like him
to talk to reporters. That's probably
j true enough. Cap'n Thompson doesn't
I like anybody to talk to reporters. No
j body in Barnegat likes anybody to talk
! to reporters. A press agent, in Barne
j gat would bo just about the most oc
j cupntionless person on tho face of the
! inhabited globe. Tho Barnegat idea
j of a newspaper man is somebody who
I roams up and down the land shrivel
I ing reputations with his scorching
! breath. If a newspaper man and a
| convicted murderer were running for
! office in this remote little town, the
i convicted murderer would win by the
! distance from Barnegat to Atlantic
| City, which is forty-odd miles.
Walt Finds Treasure
Young Walt Ridgeway was digging
postholes on Cap'n Walter Thompson's
I place when his shovel struck something
! which he thought was a rock. After he
? had unearthed it he discovered the im
! pediment to be a butter crock, full of
gold coins. Young Walt says that the
I coins are Spanish doubloons, the pieces
j of eight of the good old days of piracy
! on the high seas, when men who failed
for any reason to stand in with the
! administration wero yanked to the
j yardarm or made to walk the plank
i One of Barnegat's chief regrets is thai
! there were no reporters in those days
I -We asked a taxi driver at Barnegai
i station where Cap'n Walter Thomp
j son's place was and if he would takt
| us there. He turned the matter ovei
, in his mind and said:
"Are you a reporter?"
We admitted it. The taxi mai
i thought it over for a while longer
| then drew a deep breath and said ii
the tone of one who accepts martyrdon
for the sake of principle:
"Well, business ain't been any tp<
good. I guess* I'll take a chance."
Furtively we crept into his vehicb
and wondered who would ship home th
i remains, if any.
"We'd best look for Walt,* the tax
man remarked as we neared the Thomp
son place. We wondered who Wal
was; probably the coroner.
Cap'n a Regular Sphinx
Walt, we learned from the mistres
of the Ridgeway House, boarding an
meals, was over to the Thompso
place. We crossed the rond, followed
directions to advance by the rear o?
the shining new green and white resi?
dence which the Cap'n has built for
himself, turned to the left?and ran
spang into Cap'n Walter Thompson.
"I won't tell you a thin?," Cap'n
Thompson said before we had thought
of anything to ask.
We insisted timidly on inquiring if
it were true that the Cap'n had found
a pirate's hoard.
"Maybe; maybe not," said Cap'n
Thompson. "I won't tell you a thing.
There was a piece in the paper com?
paring me with Cap'n Kidd, huh! This
Kidd wasn't a real pirate at all. He
was just a little feller. He wasn't
anything. If you want to compare ms
with a pirate compare me with Morgan.
Old ,Sir Henry was a real pirate.
Alongside him Kidd was a molly
' coddle.
"There's a man over there picking
chickens who can tell you about it, il
he wants to."
We went across to where young Walt
Ridgeway was methodically trxtractlns
the feathers from a recently dccapl
tated hen. He wa-s surounded hj
debris and seemed n?-'ite interested :r
his task.
"Some of the papers had it al
wrong," young Walt said. "It wasn'
an iron pot; It was a crock, like j
butter crock. There was about a quar
of those gold pieces in it. And a pieci
of something that looked like papei
only it wasn't paper. It might hav
been chamois."
Like "Hen Scratching"
"Parchment," we suggested, eager!.?,
"Maybe; I don't know," said Wal1
"They said it must be some sort o
message, but I don't know abot:
that. The marks on it didn't loo
like anything to me. Just like he
scratchings, and anyway, it was a
faded and you couldn't make anythin
out of it. That's all there was to i
The Cap'n sent the whole thing 1
somebody in New York to find 01
about it. That's all I know."
Just then Cap'n Thompson appear?
and young Walt stopped talking as
; somebody had shut, him off from a
speech. He faded from view.
The cap'n talked with us of ships f?
I a while, freely and as friendly as cou
be. Then he said: -
"How much is a doubloon wor
We said we didn't know, and ask
if the gold pieces were doubloons.
"I'm not going to tell you anything
said Cap'n Thompson. "I'll tell y
just what I told those other fellov
Nothing at all."
The taxi driver herded us back
"They got something," he vfllu
teered. "Young Walt Ridgeway
got something all right. He told :
he did, and I've known him all his li
Say, the cap'n he talked to you, did
he now? He talked to you more tr
I've ever known him to talk to ai
In that case we'd hate to meet
with Cap'n Walter Thompson wl
he had one of his uncommunicat
spells on.

The women's division of the Federa?
tion of Jewish Philanthropies opened
their exhibition of wax-figure tableaux
to members of the federation at the
Hotel Pennsylvania last night. The
dolls are dressed to represent the
charitable work of the federation as
carried on by each of the ninety.-one
institutions, and Martin Jenter, of
Mount Vernon, the artist who worked
out the scheme, said yesterday that it
is the first time dolls have been used
to emphasize the object of a drive.
The exhibition will be open to the
public to-day and the committee in
charge, headed by Mrs. Sidney C. Borg,
expects a large attendance. There will
be no admission charge and no can?
vassing for funds will take place at
the exhibition. E. M. Otterburg, one
of the associate chairmen, stressed the
fact that there will not be any public
collections, which, he said, make
charitable drives so annoying to thea?
tergoers and others. He believes that
the necessary million .dollars can be
raised by private subscription and by
interesting the public in the work that
the federation Is carrying on.
The entertainment committee has
?arranged a program for every day this
week. This afternoon is Selwyn Day;
to-night is Ned Weyburn Day; Tues?
day is Theater Day; Wednesday is Mo-'
tion Picture Day; Thursday is Fashion
Day. Markell's Orchestra will play
every afternoon, Edwin Franko Gold?
man's Band will play Monday evening,
and the Hebrew Orphan Asylum Band
will furnish the music on the other
three evenings.

Dr .Wise opened his observations by
an attack o?r what he termed the lall
Muma of this country, avertir- thai
Senator -Henry Cabot Lodge <?le_ the
Armies of Mustapha Kcm.il Pasha back
info Europe by refusing to let lornf**
Pfesifent Wilson accent a mandate for
America over Armenia."
Attacks Near East Policy
"And now," he Raid, "the same Sen?
ator Lodge want;; the United States to
mtervon- to save the Christians, when
tins country could have prevented the
Smyrna disaster.
"During the World War the United
Mates refrained from declaring war on
turkey in order to protect* a few mil?
lions of investments in the Near Ea?t
After the war, when this country should
have been helping t? avert Near East
hostihties.it devoted its time to won?
dering when France, Belgium and the
others were going to pay the million?
they owe.
"America's whole attitude toward
Europe has been one of: -Wo did our
lob, and now we're through, and will
have nothing further to do with Euro?
pean affairs.' Through a greUp of
United States Senators the American
people have been misled into believing
Europe's ills are incurable. With Eu?
rope left to itself th's is true, but
America could successfully perform
the task."
Declaring this country is "suffering
from a sense of triviality," Dr. Wise
"America take?! neither a trapic view
of the universe nor a comic view; it
takes no view ?at ?ill This is manifest?
ed in its conception of democracy,
which it considers as a political diver?
sion rather than a collective dedica-ion
to a high end. Occasionally Americans
have spasms of interest in political
Campaigns, but at other times democ?
racy exists chiefly as onlv a theory for
most people. The result: Political
Intolerance Defined
"In some ways," Dr. Wise went on,
"this is the most intolerant country in
the world.
"This," he said, "is true, despite our
much vaunted 'melting pot.' Its pres?
ent intolerance is the result of a post,
war hysteria which has given sanction
i and canonization to tendencies in the
American character which otherwise
would not dare show themselves.
"Luskism is one illustration of this
intolerance. Luskism is Ku-Klux Klan
ism embodied into legislative enact?
ment, the very negation of democracy."
Speaking of "America's passion for
substitutes," Dr. Wise asserted that
"while Americans will not accept a
substitute for a brand of tooth pow?
der, they willingly accept every cure- j
all suggested, self-hypnotizing them- j
selves with the words of Coue, the j
French psychologist, that 'I am well; I !
am better; in fact, I am perfectly j
lovely.'" '
William Allen White's charge that j
Kansas cares only for Kansas is ap-j
plicable to the rest of the country, he j
said, and particularly to New York
City, which he regarded as "massively j
"In Kansas and the West the ills of
America are more diffused," -he de- ?
clared, "but#in New York City they!
are so concentrated that this commu?
nity has become a poor, third class
imitation of Europe."
