POTATOES $10 A BAG AND SCARCE AT, THAT Poor Maine Crop and Rail Embargo the Cause. A potato famine, or at least a hort ,cgn that will sond the prlco soaring to unprecedented IicIrIUk, was fortKhad ntved by wholesale qnntallons hero yes terday, ' Maine potatoes, chief source of supply, have gone up 60 per cent since u week ago. The wholeisalo price for n 160 pound bag of JIulne potatoes on Kebruary 21 wan V'S to 7.-: on February 37 It was ft.M to $S and yesterday It touched the record figure of $10 a bag on the pltrs, with few potatoes to bo had ever t that price. 'According! to Mrs. Louis U. Welz miller, Deputy Commlsaloner of Mar kets, the poor potato crop lust year, coupled with railroad freight embar goes caused by weather condtlons, Is tho probable reason for tho situation. She recommends rice, macaroni and spaghetti as potato substitutes while tho high prlco rules. JSxcept potatoes, most food prices fell yesterday. All grades and cuts of beef dropped n cent a. pound, eggs were down to C7 cents a dozen for the best fresh grades, threo cents below Satur day, and butter was down ono cent to 67 and 67V4 cents a pound. Tho National Sugar Refining .Company announced a icductlon of one cent a pound for gran Vlatcd sugar to 14 cents. Other reflnerj are selling at 15 and 16 cents.

At the wme time the New Jersey Interstate Ilrldge- and Tunnel Commis sion indorsed the Holland plan by vot ing; It approval of Mr. Holland's reply to Gen. George V. Gotehals's crtlclsm of tho Holland tubes In favor of his own. The New York.

OVERSEA GIRLS WZD. Romances of the Army Reach Fru ition pit Arrival Here. Two romance; begun overseas led to a double wedding ycttcrday In the office of Michael J. Cruise, Deputy City Clerk. The brides were released from Elllr Island In tho custody, of the bridegrooms and welfare workers who later wit nessed tho double ceremony. George 15. Graves, assistant' steward at- tho Hotel Colllngwood, went to the Island to meet his fiancee, Miss Eliza beth Edgson, 23, whom he wooed In Kngland while serving In the American army. With him went Corporal Will iam P. McMackin of the regular army, who had conin from Fort !. . Hu:t!!, Cheyenne, Wyo.. to meet Mile. Jcano' Thurct of Bordeaux. There were no chaplains to bo found and so the party proceeded to the City Hall. ' Mabel Lee, the Oudcaslan widow of tho lato Tom Lee, who, ns Mayor of Chinatown, ruled Mott strcot for many yenrs before his death, was carried through smoko and llamo last night by Patrolman Phil Byrne, Mrs. Leo was arlocp In her flat nt 18 Mott street when Ylng Chong. who conducts an Importing business at 31, opened tho cellar door nt IS with the view to looking over u foiv bales of stuff that tho expressman had delivered curly In the evening. Chong uses the basement of 18 an a sturugo place. 1 A volume of aiyld sinoko that made Chong strangle for a ttecond or two Is sued from the packed basement. Patrol mun Byrno turned In the alarm. Abovo the street tloor 18 Molt street Is u tene ment. Hi Oriental grandeur the widow of old Tom Lee has lived on Iho third tloor for thirty ycari through long wars and mysterious llrcs and not u few at tempts by assassins upon tho life of Chinatown's most autocratic Mayor, Patrolman Collins and Detectives Delaney and Caravclll, being In the Bowery near Molt stroet on a bit of official business, went to the ussistnnco of Byrne, unci between them thoy car ried, drugged and chased a dozen men and women Chinese and otherwise down the lire es-.-apo and Into the Joss House at 20 Mott btrcot and Into Quon On's American Kcelaurant at 16. Nono was obliged to go to tho hospital- But It remained tho honor of Patrolman Byrne to nrouso tho slumbering Mrc.

Shu managed to get Into a fow skirts and furs and entrust herself to tho lender caro of Patrolman Byrne, w)m hustled her over to Kink Hong Lan' place, where e,ho revived sufficiently In a few minutes, to teH tho reporters Just what her sensations were. "Not that nothing's new to mo who han lived hero for these thirty years," she said. "This to-night! You ain't seen nothing. 1 could tell you boys things, I could.'1 Meannhllo Fire Chief Kcnlon and much tiro apparatus arrived, for two alarms were turned In. And the firemen went Into the smoke belching windows and doors. Krom some place within there emerged about thirty more persona who had refused to budge until tho lire men entered and began cracking doors with their axes. None of theso thirty seemed any tho worse for the fire. There were men and women and a few chil dren both sexes and of two races. But the'y were not excited ; simply very weary looking and uninterested. Tho flames seemed to be confined to Ylns Chong's bales of this and that in the basement. The preclso cause and the monetary damage could not be ac curately estimated even by Chong. Aside from Bryne's gallant rescue of Mmc Lec, the only real thrill was pre cipitated by Police Capt. Bourke and Klre Chief Kenlon, who became rather torrid In their opinions about tho rela tive value ot police and firemen at a Chinatown Are.

Mm A, Koluoiischlag folates to West Side Court His Tribulations. WAlt ONE OF FACT0BS His Honeymoon Car Stolen and llccovered At Last Ho ' Has Bride. Jersey City's personally conducted March rent strike began yesterday with about 800 occupants ot apartment houses refusing to pay Increases In the monthly rato demanded by their landlords. This Is being done, as told In Tk.3 Sun and Now York Herald Sunday, upon the ad vice of the city government, which now has the rent gougcr up a tree and pur poses to stand under htm with a club until ho comes down and surrenders. James JA Gannon, Jr., Dlrrclor of Hev enuo and Finance, Instructed all rent rayers upon whom eyecsaivo demands were made, effective March 1, to bring their I'omDlalnts to him and meanwhile to (WltW'liiercly the amount nf Kebruary rental. He further told them that If the landlord attempted dispossess proceedings the city would foot the rtu fendaut'ti hill. Gannon and clerks of tho llnance and law departments havo in vestigated thus far 300 of the 800 com plaints filed. "In 90 per cent, of the cases Investi gated," Gannon said yestwl'.iy, "tho landlord Is unquestionably prolltcerlng. On top of several other advances within tho last year and n half additional de mands ranging from $3 to (15 a mouth appear In tho notices for March. Tho landlords have not been put to any such extra expense as to justify this. Taxes In Jersey City arc actually lower than they were last year. , "It Is customary for the landlord or his ngont to cali for the rent money on the first day ot the month. It Is inter esting to noto that nt many houses where tho tenants are on strike this call was not 'mado to-day. The land lords knew that only tho amount of last month's rent would bo offered to them, and evidently they want to get legal 4d vlco before accepting It." the Tho world reasonably Is filled with men who have had no' difficulty In enter ing tho marital condition. And la even more filled, according to some author. Itles, with those who, having entered It, havo marvelled at a certain headstrong quality In themselves for many years afterward. But you may tako it from. John A. Kolbenschlag, late lieutenant In L'ncle Sam's flying service, that In tho Interval between selecting one's bride and departing with her on tho honey moon a man may go up In the ulr u sur prising number of times. With Miss Anno. Maraneso clinging to his arm ho appeared suddenly nt the bar of tho West Hide Court yesterday and Informed Magistrate Simpson, who occu pied the woolsack, that he had como to bo married. The court at that moment was balancing tho scales, upon one of those complicated Issues of' law and fact which Hell's Kitchen brings so often to thu notice of our Jurisprudence and was about torreprlmand Mr. Kolhenschlng when something In tho young man's aspect tempered Justlco with mercy, "State your case briefly," said court, and Kolbenschlag did so.

Tho eight cent fare which tho Hudson and Manhattan Railroad Company an nounced for tho tunnel trip between Manhattan and Jersey City and Hobokcn stirred u,p Instant resentment In Jersey City yesterday.

Two reasons were given at the society's headquarters, 229 East Broad way the -public benefit derived by the low cost of army 'foodstuffs outweighs tho advantage of a month's earlier oc cupancy of tho larger quarters, and the additional tlmo will allow the society's architect to prepare In greater detail the plans for alteration Into a modern and sanitary home for Immigrants.
