KEEPER, care Philip F. Donohuc. 233 Broad
The American liner St. Taiil, which
sailed henco for riymouth, ChcrboUru
and Southampton with 150 cabin pas
sengers, rcsumlnc her regular service
Interrupted by tlio war, developed
boiler trouble on Uo trip and her com
mander, Capt. Arthur Mills, announced
by wireless yesterday that sho was
heading for Halifax and expected to
reach thcro to-morrow morning. Sho
was about 450 miles southeast ot Hall
fax when CupL Mills sent his message
to 'tho International Mercantile Ma
rine offices here. The passengers, In

Star liner Cedrlo and the Leyland liner
Canada.
Tho wireless sent by Capt. Mills
reads : ''Owing to trouble with boiler
tubes mi nroceedlnc to Halifax. Ex
pect to reach thcro Friday morning."
When the tubes began to fall Is a mat
ter of conjecture, but It Is likely, Judg.
Insr from the short distance out tho
ship was when sho turned about, that
tho engineers had been tinkering witn
the boilers some tlmo Before tne snipper
finally decided to steer a course for
Halifax. There Is little doubt that sho
will have to come tc Now York later
for renalrs In tho yard that refitted her.
Tho International Mcrcantllo Marine
offices tn Halifax wcro notified yeswr
day to hold the Leyland liner Canada
there until the arrival of tho St Paul so
passengers who desired to proceed In her
might do so on trtoay morning, xno
mite Star liner Cedrlc, which sails
from this port on Saturday, will put Into
Halifax on Monday to take such of the
St. Paul's passengers as may not desho
to take passage by the Canada.
Tho St. Paul may be proceeding under
one set of engines only. Her commander
did not ask for help, so it Is Inferred the
ship Is not seriously crippled. Sho has
had several misfortunes In recent years,
the most serious being her capsizing In
dock In April, 1918, after she had been
dry docked and extensively repaired.
She came out of dry dock here a week
ago, rconglncd and otherwise made over
and presumably good for several years'
hard service.

RENT COMMISSION
J URGED AT HEARING
Committee to Recommend
Act Regulating Conditions.
tttcial to The Sun axp New Turk Hekilp.
t 'AtBANT, March 3. Egs&tment of a
law creating a rent carhmlsslon to regu
lato conditions Ipt'Ncw York Is to be
Recommended yf the Legislature by tho
AesemDiy yominiuco on '.taxation as a
result of hearing to-day. Chairman
Frankjlil Judson announced ' to-night
that a measuro similar to the Jesse
Mil undoubtedly will be passed.
L The hearing was enlivened by a tilt
Between Leo K. Mayer, secretary of
Mayor Hylan's Bent Committee, and
Stuart Browne, representing real estate
owners. Mr. Mayer said that by In-
xerence Mr. Browne made it appear
that tho Hylan Rent Committee was
Corrupt, and he challenged him or any
one else to present any eviJence of
"cfirruptlon or bribery" to the District
Attorney.
t Ho ono at the hearing, whether for
4rl' against tho Jesse bill or any ' rent
commission bill, had any Idea that the
solution ot the high rent problem lies
. in 'regulation. It was stated that -New
York city is short of houses for
f.COO.OOO persons and that -the crying
need is construction. Failure to get
additional houses may result in a "back
to-the farm" movement, it was pre-
dieted.
' Beal estate men opposed any regu
latory measures.

Denial that tho New York Central
Railroad Company Is seeking legislation
to 'authorize a 4 cent fare was mads 'yes
terday by Ira A. Place, vice-president of
the road. He said:
- "The despatch from Albany; appear

tho New York Central Railroad Com
pany has applied for amendment to tho
statutes with respect to the 2 cent faro
limitation on portions of its line is not

HELD ON CHARGE OF
AERIAL CO. FRAUD
William Snyder Arrested by
District Attorney's Detectives.
William P. Snyder, 70 years old, who
claims to have been an Assistant Attorney-General
of the United States during
the Garfield Administration and to have
been personal counsel to Russell A. Alger
during the latter's term as secretary ot
War, was arrested yesterday in his
home, 961 St Nicholas avenue, charge
with grand larceny.
According to Assistant District Attor
ney John T. Dcollng detectives from the
District Attorney's office havo been
looking for Snyder since last August
when an office which he and three other
men maintained at 110 West Forty-sec-ond
street was suddenly closed following
an Investigation of the Aerial Trans
portation Company, which Snyder and
Ills associates were promoting.
Their method, according to Mr. Doo
llng, was to advertise at Government fly
ing fields for pilots and mechanics. Air
service men who responded w.ire told
that6nyder and his associates were Just
ready to launch an aerial transportation
plan on a nationwide scale, with the
backing of several prominent financiers,
and as a special favor a number of
pilots and mechanics were permitted to
put their money into the concern. Spe
cific complaints havo been filed by
Lleuts. Otis G. Clement and Augustus
Leasar, both of Langley Field, Va., and
Sergeant Joseph H. Richardson of Gulf
port, Miss, and about sixty other victims
have been found.
Snyder arrest followed his Indict,
mont on Tuesday. Ho was committed
to the Tombs pending the fixing of ball.
His three associates also have been indicted.
A commission was appointed yester
day by Supremo Court Justice Erlangcr
to Inqulro Into tho competency of Mrs.
Maria C. Hono of S Gramercy Park, sis
ter of tho late John L. Cadwaladtr. Her
daughter, Mrs. Hester G. Bartol of 66
East Flfty-olxth street, petitioned for
tho appointment of a conservator for
her estate, alleging that she Is unable
to manage It prudently.
Mrs. Hone, who Is the widow of John
Hone, has an Income ot more than 160,
000 a year from trust funds in addition
to 123,000 of Liberty Bonds and a cot
tage at Bar Harbor. She is 80 years old
and alleged to .bo suffering from senllo
dementia. She spends most of her time,
her daughter told tho court, playing with
dolls.
Justice ErI anger appointed Egerton L.
Wlnthrop, Herman L. Edgar and Dr.
Asplnwall Judd as members of the com
mission to sit with a Sheriff's Jury and
c'ictde whether some one should be desig
nated as committee of the property of
tho alleged Incompetent.

yesterday excoriating such agents of the
Internal Revenue Department as had. or
leastwise were reported to have had,
bickerings with a rank impostor posing
as none other than Mr. McCarthy.
The masquerader was going about using
his rare physical endowmmcnt and re
semblance to Mr. McCarthy to Instill
confidence into tho breasts of those to
whom ho was selling that lawless fluid,
whiskey, so the report ran. "Why."
asked Marshal McCarthy, "If this
astounding story be true, why did the
agents not arrest tho Impostor?"
"It is needless to say," said the right
eously wrathful pen of Marshal McCar
thy, "that crooked men will not hesitate
to impersonate any one." "It may be,"
ended the letter, "that these agents now
know that they had a dangerous crim
inal In their grasp and1 allowed him to
escape."
"How's that?" asked Marshal McCar
thy, as he drove home the last period.
"I guess that's plain enough."

Window Destruction.
by
AnVEHTISKJIENT.
Strike sabotage, consisting of destruc
tion of window plate glass, all done so
expertly and cunningly that the pollco
havo been baffled for two months, has
aroused glass Insurance underwriting
associations In Manhattan and Brook
lyn, causing them to hlro their own
private detectives hnd night patrols. In
the two months that the strike of glass
setters has lasted more than ,$250,000
worth of glass in store fronts and dis
play windows has beeen ruined and
insurance companies havo suffered
heavily.
Worklnu- in tho dark and very lata at
night it has been a favorite trick to in
sert a chisel between a sheet of (class
and the moulding which holds it and
crack tho pane with a noiseless wrench.
Many stores In Fulton street Brcadwav
and Wllloughby avenue, Brooklyn, and
in l'lim, sixin and .Eighth avenues and
Broadway In Manhattan have suffered.
Trucks carrying sheets of plate glass
havo been stoned frequently and In in
stances valuable glass broken.
Officers of the Plate Glass Insurance
Exchango at 37 Liberty street said yes
ttrday that everything possible Is being
dono to run down the raiders, but that
It has been very hard to get evidence.
Some six "weeks ago the Plate Glass
Underwriters' Association, of which
Major A. White Is president hired
force of thlrty-flvo men to patrol dis
tricts whero their Insurance was heavily
I spread, and although the loss was cut
I down by this method, damage was by
j no means stopped.
La Cuardia Vetoes Removal,
Calling Work Inartistic.
Acting Mayor La Guardla sided with
tho Manhattanltes of the Board of Al
dermen yesterday In tho great contro
versy as to the artistic qualities of the
fountain In City Hall Park when he
vetoed an appropriation to remove tho
fountain to Crotona Park, The Bronx.
The Park commissioner of The Bronx
got 'the appropriation passed largely on
the ground that, Manhattan would bo
glad to be rid of tho fountain.
In thus saving the Bronx Park De
partment from the error of its own
judgment acting Mayor La Guardla
said:
"The beauty of Crotona Park Is such
that it would he a pity to mar it by
this discarded ploco of work, Inartistic
and grotesque."

New Yorlc gave a thought to Its poor
yesterday when tho first posters an
nouncing the campaign ot the New
York Association for Improving the
Condition of tho Poor for 5375,000, be
ginning to-morrow morning, made their
appearance. The bill posters were none
other than the Glrf Scouts, who sum
moned practically the entire personnel of
their organization in the city, number
ing moro than 4,000, to distribute the
posters. On Broadway and the Bow
ery, up Park and Fifth avenues and on
First avenue and other main thorough
fares aa well the little army of khakl
clad girls made its way, placarding
posts and fences and decorating store
nnd shop windows with thousands of
the posters. .
Tho poster, is a mute appeal, telling
lis story well. On an attractive color
background of orange a typical desti
tute family is portrayed, with the
mother covering a young- baby with a
thin, inadequate shawl. Her two other
young children, in rags, are beside her.
The Girl Scouts; doing their bit in tho
campaign at ita very beginning, made
many friends for the city's poor yester
day. The poster reitits: "The New
York A. I. C. P. helps the poor mothers
and children of the tenements. You
help the A. I. C. V."-

The Smartness of the Spring Blouse is
Determined by Definite Things
1 This Spring most radical things have happened to blouses to give them charm and
character and to make them different from the blouses of all other Springs. ,
One of these things is the. use of lace not only the kind of lace, but its unusual
application There is, this Spring, a most decided flair for Irish crochet, filet and cluny
lace, used to forfn a structural part of the blouse not merely as "trimming."
An example of this treatment is the attractive blouse at the right, of fine cream
colored cotton net and fiWt put together to form a little short-sleeved and round-necked
blouse, trimmed around the neck and' sleeves with cream-colored embroidered batiste.
The net is hand-embroidered with a small vine and leaf design; $85.
Thcblouse at the left makes, a very interesting use of cluny lace and cluny lace
since its revival seems to have taken on a new charm by having it inserted in the large
collar and on the elbow of the sleeves. The lace is applied by means of hand embroidery
to form a charming design that gives an "over-blouse" effect. The neckline and sides
of the bodice are outlined with embroidery in black and white silk; $82.50.

FEMINA CORSETS
Femina corsets have a'hew feature the elas
tic placed on the outside of the corset. This It
particularly effective, as the elastics in back ate
placed over the back stays about four inches
from the lower edge, keeping them from pro
truding. The laces used for trimmings are ddinty, the
materials light and pliable.
