Mackay companies, and author of a standard law look, "Cook on Corporations." addressed a state ment vesterdny to. the Joint committee on Interstate Commerce at Washington. it'Tlng that the Federal Government he rir. nt once to acquire tne stocks nnd bonds of all railrnails in the country with the Intent of future Government control. Condemnation proceedings would entail a tremendous cost, he said, but the purchase of stocks can be done by exchange that would not cost the Government a dollar In his argument for Federal control. Mr. Cook e.nys: "We cannot return to old conditions. The railroads would again break down financially, and railroad securities would again crumble away : higher rates would again be denied ; the present vast sav ing In direct routing, in common use of terminals, tracks and equipment. In the discharge of an army of solicitor, branch officers, traffic agents and branch ticket employee., and In th" elimination of unnecessary trains and unnecessary depots, would disappear, and the wasto of competition between trunk linen and branch lines would re appear, "State commissions would again re sume their pernicious activities and chaos would again prevail. Railroad security holders will oppose any such catastrophe. Meantime, the railroads aro being fused nnd welded Into a solid mass of metal. They cannot be disin tegrated Into coke and Iron ore. Their oil organizations are being broken be yond repair. Tho stockholders want no resurrection : the directors are falling away ; the presidents are dropping out ; the operating staffs are becoming Gov ernment employee". "The people will not want the old system. They will want the unified system, And even If, like tho Bourbons, the former railroad regime did come back. It would again be suspected Public control may cost more, but at least the public will be spending Its own money. The old regime was not allowed to Increase railroad rules be cause the public was determined to get rid of thst regime at any cost." Mr. Cook urges that It's plan be adopted without delay, because tho pur chase of railroad stocks can now be mad cheaply His statement showing the expense of condemnation proceed ings follows ; "Now Is the time to put this p!an Into effect, because railroad stocks and borfda are cheap and can bo acquired at fair prices. In times past, when Wall Street could get control of a great railroad system cheaply, Wnll Street acted. The nation should act now In regard to the railroads, because per manent Government control of the railroads Is Inevitable. To obtain that control the Government will have to buy or condemn either tho present stocks or the phslcal properties of the railroads. The former Is much cheaper, easier, quicker and less, disturbing to business and to the public. "At present prices the stocks and bonds of the railroads run be acquired for about 118,000.000.000. To condemn the railroad properties themselves, how ever, would probably cost the Govern ment twice that amount. The reason Is that In condemnation the Government would have to pay for the earning power of the railroads." Mr Cook here cited the Monongahel.t Canal case, In which tho Supreme Court. established this principle. In addition the Government would have to nav for I- ..An.A Kflt.ttir.lncy tn !, 1 1 ,1 i mi. ill. ft i.un-i "n. .. ...v- ...... taun bv reason of State charters. He cited a decision of the Supreme Court show ing that the franchise must be paid for because It Is a substantial element In the value of the property taken. Further, the Indications aro that the American rUlroads are undercapitalized and an asseisment of the properties added to the earning power would prove enormous, In addition, Mr. Cook says, litigation lnolved In condemna tion proceedings Is a serious factor for consideration.

COMEDIENNE AT STRAND Mabel Normand in ."Back to tho Woods" Wallace Rcid nt tho Rialto. Opportunities to observe weird fellow men come ao seldom as to make worth viewing the picture Director Rothapfel Is presenting this week at the Rlvoll, The film In "Among the Cannibal Islea of the South Pacific." which reveals the psychology of the vee In such graphic fashion as to cnuse sceptics to believe In the Darwinian theory. It Is an easy task to look down on primitive peoples and to regret their lack of taste In wearing sticks through their nones and not having the services of metropolitan barber, but It results In the conclusion that the gap between the tint and man Is a comparatively short one. after all. True, the stick that the cannibals In the cinema affect Is not pleasing, but one may get Just as callous to It as to high waist lines or violet shirts or anything of the sort. The film Is Interesting In not only being a mltTor to those who see It. but for the good reason that the majorl'.y "f objections to travel pictures have been removed. It has something of a plot. In that the photographers, Martin Johnson and hla wife, lead their pictorial story to the climax of being captured and escaping through the aid of a Brit ish man-o'-war, a finale that might have bten properly borrowed from ante-bellum literature or theatricals. Bury I'aelrsa Aunt Men. To the civilized mind there Is, how ever, a deep appeal and Interest In watching strange folk on the screen, and In knowing that Adam was the common father. These people that Mr. Johnson photographed live on cocoanuta and fish the year round ; one tribe buries alive uselens old men, placing a stone over the vctlm's face wo he won't be annoyed by clods of falling earth. Their dances are almost as wriggly as those seen on. the musical comedy stage, they have as few clothes as a girl at the Winter Garden, and If a man gets married In the morn ing the chief can give him a divorce by nightfall, which Is quicker and less ex pensive than Reno. The film Is entertaining, amusing, ex citing. Instructive and a mental stimulus Mr. Johnson was on hand jeaterday, as he will be throughout the week, to de liver a talk while the picture Is being shown. Mr Rothapfel also has on the programme "Mammon and the Archer," another good O. Henry film, and the Of ficial War Review, which shows latest scenes In America's fight. Mnbel Nornianil at Strand. The Strand has Mabel Normand in "Back to the Woods," a picture that Is somewhat better than recent releases of this star. It Is a blend of comedy and drama, and Miss Normand Is best In her moments of humor. Manager Edef Is also presenting "Our Dumb Friends In the War," the first of a series of French pictures. It reveals new uses of dogs, horses and mules In and around the lines. The Topical Re view has recent scenes from abroad and at home. Wallace Reld In "!ess Than Kin" Is the attraction nt the Illalto. Ho is seen as a chap who has accidentally killed another man. rices to Central America and takes the position of a man who has Just conveniently diet. It Is a bromldlc text, but the film is well handled, and there are eeveral spoti with good humor therein Of the pictures held over, there are D. W. Griffith's "Hearts of the World" at the Forty-fourth Streot, William A. Brady's "Stolen Orders" at the Lyric and "To Hell With the Kaiser" nt the Broad way. RED CROSS BANS ALL POLITICAL ACTIVITY Members Told to Resign or Refrain From Reing Candi dates for Public Office. The Amenran Red C'ros announced In a clean rut manner yesterday that Its officers and workers will not be allowed to run for any public ofllce In the com ing general election or to be active In the Interest of nny candidate. ThlH announcement, which was made by Ethan Allen, manager of tho Atlan tic division, was based on a ruling of the War Council of the American Red Cross, as described In a letter to Mr. Allen from the acting general manager, George F.. Scott. Mr Scntt's letter sas: "The first general election since the entrance of the United States into the war Is to take place before long. The Red Cross, Is and must bei maintained a strictly non-partisan, nnn-polltlcal or ganliation. The reasons for this are so obvious to every one that they need no elaboration. "Membership In the Red Cross In cludes eo main people nnd there are so many men of prominence engaged In Its work either at homo or abroad that It Is not ut nil nnllkels that many of them will be candidates for office. No matter how sincerely any Red Cross official o- worker may strie to keep separate his 1 Red Cross work from anv possible po-1 lltlcal ambitions whlrh he may enter-1 tain, he may and probably will be quite unable to prevent his friends from using I his connection with the Red Cross In order to gain favor with the voters. "While such action cannot be con trolled, all candidates for cfflce who are, at heart sincere well wishers of Hie Red Cross should renllxe that they must do all In their niwer to prevent the pub lic from gain- - an Impression that po litical preferirct ca o- should directly or Indirectly be nffc I by Red Cross work either at homo or abroad. The text of Red Cross se-vice to mankind Is stamped ny'the approal of the Ameri can people, regardless of politic, race or religion. No taint of selfishness or self seeking can be nllowed to creep Into the work, endangering and even perhaps de stroying Its great accomplishment. "Accordingly the Red Cross Wnr Council Instructs me to direct that you request all officials of the Red Cros, either In chapters or division headquar ters, who are In anv position of execu tive authority and who at tho same time contemplate candidacy for public office, either to resign In their ofTlclal capacity from the Red Cros work or to refrain from such candidacy, "At the same time we ask that you give this statement the broadest public-1 Ity and that you use every influence or your office, to prevent In so far as possl ble the ue of the Red Cross or of Its eervlces either directly nr Indirectly In the advancement or In connection with the political campaign of any person."

This is the age of posters, and ship posters, which are not xery numerous now. promise to play nn important part in the shipyard scheme of things before many moons. If you have worked on a poster which you think ha the "punch" In It that will make a shipyard man feel more like do ing his level best in building ehlps to carry troops to Join the other wonderful boys who are giving such a glorious ac count of themselves on the other side send It to The 6un office before next Thursday night and give Matlack Price and hie fellow Judges a chance to decide If It Is worthy of a prlxe If you don't care about a prlxe, donate It to Uncle Sam.

The .cause of the most glorious little nation on earth wan pleaded and sung and prayed for last night beforo 7,000 people In the great City College Sta dium. From the huge orchestra pit, upon which all eyes were concentrated, there came a preliminary flourish of Instruments. The dark mass of listen ers rose. A barytone began tne song : "Oh, mother Belgium, to you our heart, our blood, for the King, for law and liberty !" It was the deep, moving triumphant song of the men of Brabon, who sung It when they achieved their Indepen dence eighty-eight years ago. The singer was Augusto Boullllez, un til four years ago tho leading barytone nf Belgium's finest theatre, the Grand Opera of Brussels. His mother had been kIRed before his eyes in his home at Mons. His son of 16 Is In the trenches. He has lost all his prop erty, and for the sake of his family Is here to restore his fortune, Vnal Andlencr Stirred. It was no wonder the audience 01 Americans, Frenchmen, Belgians, Ital ians Allies stood and cheered eo wild ly "La Brabanconne" has not been sung often In great audiences. The music stirred the blood so that feet and hands beat out applause to the quicken ing of the heart, and the stadium echoed again and again to the mighty sound. There was little need In such an audi ence to speak the words of Belgian heorlsm The story l too well known, and the music wna expressing what words could not It was to honor t lie occasion, the birth of Belgian Indepen dence, and to return to the delegates of the Belgian 'Embassy something of America's sentiments for the little nation that the Rev. Dr William T. Manning spoke. "I give you this message," he slad. "As there Is a Just God In heaven we will sec Justice done in Belgium. We will give our whole strength and life to this struggle tilt victory Is won. We will follow our million men over there with ten million more If need be, till Serbia Is delivered, till Alsace-Lorraine Is set free, till Russia Is 'protected, until the Hun Is taught to curse the day on which he tore up that scrap of paper, until Belgium shall be repaid so far as pos sible In this world for the wrong she has suffered." ' Dr. Manning referred to the recent statement of the German Chancellor that Belgium was to bo used as a pawn In pence negotiations, and to that he made answer: "We serve notice on the PrUaslun Chancellor and his llohcnrollern master that America and your oilier allies will pever do any barRainlni; wlti Prui-viiiinji .ibout Belgium or nn other rountrj We did not enter the va' for that put pose We are going to drive the brutal In vader by force out of 011r land, nnd out of the other lands wh.ch he has at tacked and despoiled. "And then we are golnp: to dictate to him the terms of a just and rlahteous peace. We are going to compel him to keep those terms, and we are r.olnV to deal with him In tho-e negotiations in Berlin." It was for Major Leon Osterrelth. chief of the Belgian mission to the I'nlted Slates, to epress the apprecia tion of his Government for thfe celebra tion. He did not attempt to say much, but he spj.se to effect amid roars nf laughter. "I think the Germans have been boast ing, as I road th" news reports latel, in saying that It was American bluff. We little Belgians In this gr.-it stiuggle did our little bit and won the first round. But I'ncle Snm. with his mighty (1st, l going to give him a knockout." Tnlilenii of (be :nflon.

IT HELD MOH AT HAY 'iSelirecklicli' Its Hnttle Cry, lis It Lunges at Officer . Cheese Proves I'ndoing. In Brooklyn these days nothing es capes the searching re of suspicion. Dachshunds are driven from the streets on account of their pro-German proclivi ties, and even delicatessen stores have become more or less out of voguo. But yesterday, capping the climax, a hurry call was sent Into the police station near Newport avenue, and the excited vole at tho other end of the wire told the sergeant that a Kaiser bird had been discovered and wbb holding a mob at bay, with vicious thrusts of Its beak. So Officer Charles Chrletcntcn was. despatched to quell the riot. He ran through the streets at breakneck speed, and on reaching Newport avenue saw the mob and above the din of their voices could hear the strident cry of schreckllchhelt. And whenever tho scream was repeated the crowd retreated en manso and then rallying would re turn to the former position. Officer Chrlstensen ploughed hla war through the crowd and there before him was a huge bird with a bill at least a yard long. And at the base of the bill was an upturned mustache. At the tip of cither end of the mustache was a small eye. glinting fire and defiance at the crowd. "What's all this?" asked Chrlstensen. "Schreckllchkeit." replied the bird, and shot forward Its bill, nenrly puncturing Officer Chrlstenecn's bread basket The officer wheexed and glared while the bird drew back Its hfad and prepared for another nttick. After some thought the officer (Jeclded to ue tact on this pro-German creature, so smiling he said, "Wis. geht's?" "Schreckllch," screamed the bird, mak ing another lunge. Obviously tact was out of the question and subterfuge waa necessary. So afti- t hurried consul tation it waa decided that a flanking movement should be executed. While the crowd held the blrd'a attention Of ficer Chrlstensen stealthily tip-toed be hind the outlandish critter nnd throt tled It. Tho combat that followed had best not bo related here. The bird's raucous cries, Its violent lunges and wildly beating wings almost defeated Officer Chrlstensen. But finally It was overcome and lugged to tho pollre sta tion. In a cross-examination the bird was non-committal. No hint of Us origin wa forthcoming, no word concerning Its sympathies In the war. More mibterfuge was then resorted to. Officer Christen etn went to the shop across the street and bought it huge piece of fragrant L.mburger. This would prove whether tho bird was of German origin or not. In the anteroom he unwrappetl his delicacy. Then holding It before him with one hand he approached the Kaiser's winged envoy. A faint breete blew through the room and wafted the luscious scent to the bird's nostrils It was seen to tri 11M1 nnn irmw weak lis eyes became glazed and then, seeming to summon up Its last ounce of strength P opened Its bill In one loud, overwhelm ing "Schreckllch!" Then, scattering the patrolmen to the right and the left. It hopped to the front door, on the threshhold It paused for a minute, as though trying to get Itis benr Iiibs and then opening Its wings sailed upward, repeating Its strange cry ns !t flew "I gues maybe It wasn't pro-German after nil." said Officer Christen- en, rubbing the sore ppot Just above his belt buckle. Then he added to himself, "But one can't he too careful " Chilli Injured liy Army Tniflc.
