18 $87,147,561 SCHOOL . BUDGET IS RECORD Board of Education Almost Doubles 1918 Demand for Funds. SALARY EAISES SOUGHT Board of Estimnto Is Expected to Swat Requests for Ap propriations. The Board of Education prepared yes terday a tasty dleh for the Board of E jlmate and Apportionment to make hash f later. Tho tentative budget It adopted tor this year, 187,147,561, la considerable bf a chance from tho tentative budget bf 1918, which was only $49,599,834. And In addition to the Item of 82,638,315 made necessary In the current budget because the board went short of building funds last year and had to borrow, and must now take up Its notes, and to pther item of similar size which naturally had to be talked about, the confabulation was bonstantly being delayed by things such fta Board Member Mrs. Emma Murray demanding 82 a week more for her sec retary, and everybody from the Presi dent down Instantly following her lead and demanding appropriations for their secretaries and stenographers and ofllco boys and so on. Guesses were freely made by those tratslde the conference room that there yma no hope or expectation that the comfortable budget prepared by the ex perts of Fifty-ninth street would be rec ognized by Its progenitors when It came eft the operating table at Cty Hall. The Item of $42,000,000 for mlarles, for Instance, was expected to be questioned. Vayoc Hylan being known to object strenuously to the Increase In teachers' alartea granted by tho Legislature,' an increase, he declares, that will cost the Oetty $20,000,000 a year, whereas school HuthoriUes say that estimate Is much too touch. An Increase of $4,000,000 Is what they allow for. The budget aa presented for dlscus plon yesterday was divided Into a gen eral school fund of $47,904,692 and a (Dedal school fund of $8,273,789. In ad dition there Is tho Item of $2,583,315 pvhlch will be needed to take up short term notes that were Issued to make good deficiencies In the 1918 building programme, and for new buildings In 1918 $26,889,497 Is asked. Repairs to old buildings are provided . tor In 1920 by an Item of $3,282,899, an ' fsoreue of $2,355,899 over last year. The board Is, starting a three year pro Brtunme of urgent repairs, some of the Older schools being really unfit for use without being fixed up. The sum of fl.930,641, $600,000 more than was ap propriated In 1918, Is requested for books nnd supplies. Fuel next year will cost 1,347,078, an Increase of $627,499 over this year, and even the Janitors will cost considerably more. Last year they were placated with $2,185,970, and thta year .they must have $3,319,970. There are COO of them. The continuation schools required by the new law, demanding that all boyst and girls under 16 who have not grad uated from high school must attend a school at least four hours a week, will take $90,000. According to the law they noed not be opened until September 1, 3620, but the Board of Education Is planning to start them in January with 50,000 pupils. When the- members of the board finally filed, out of the president's room after their long and weary conclave It Was announced that they had added a natter of almost two millions to the 185,600,000 tentative budget they began with In the morning. They had unan imously adopted a budget of $87,147,561, smd they sternly said that this was final and the one that would be laid 'down beforj the Board of Ultimate and (Apportionment. The Increase was sld to be due chiefly to an item of $1,500,000 for "a proposed Board of Education building to replace the present one, which has never been repaired since a disastrous flre In 1918. It would take $200,000 to repair It now. Officials said th&t not In twenty years Inad a budget given as much concern as the present one, and Mr. Prall declared tbat the board had labored diligently to cut it to the bono.

The scheme which Superintendent of Schools George C. Smith had yesterday for breaking the pupils' strike at Clifton, N. J was simple. In fact It looked so easy that he wondered no one had1 thought of It the day before. He de cided to let Gcorgo do It George, who Is also called Mr. Elsen hauer, Is a truant officer, and Superin tendent Smith Just told him that It was up to him to go to Clifton and gather all of those. 194 militant kids under his arms and carry them kicking and squirming off to school. But when George arrived on the' scene he found Clifton Just as depopulated of kids as It tho Pled Piper had been along before him and had piped, them all over Die hills and far away. It was tho quietest and peacefulest town he had ever laid eyes on. From the time when the old bells of the Albion place school rang out their summons In early morn until the teachers wended their homeward way not ono Infant stirred on tho broad highways. Cats and dogs were in their glory as they prowled the streets Immune from Innocent child hood's pranks. But George Elsenhauer was steeped in gloom as he paced back and forth and peered behind trees and shrubbery for the clusvo Juveniles, find ing nary a one. At length George cavo up' in despair. He decided that It would be an easier HALF HOLIDAY IS TAKEN BY STRIKE Machinists Will Lay Off on Saturday Afternoons. Having failed to get a concession of the forty-four hour week, 33,500 mem bers of the International Association of Machinists will quit work under orders from the union heads to-day, tako the afternoon off and return to work Mon day morning. By so doing they avoid a strike, but -they will get the forty-four r.our week. They Intend, to take Satur day afternoons off the remainder of the month and on October 1 will submit de mands for pay Increases of 25 per cent. when there may be a walkout. There was no Indication of tho attitude which the employers would assume toward the workers' declaration of a half holiday. A shipyard strike may be called to day after 'a meeting in Palace Hall, rwcnty-thlrd street and Third avenue, Brooklyn, of workers of the Tebo Yacht Gas In and the Robins Dry Dock and Re pair Company. Tho demands are to be formulated then. A report was received at the Downey Shipbuilding Corporation that the workmen would quit at 12 o'clock to-day and tho Standard Ship building Corporation did not expect the men to return for the afternoon. Boiler makers and shipbuilders In Jersey City voted on a strike call, but tho result was not made known. Tho men are em ployed In Weehawkcn and Hoboken. JEALOUS LOVE PUTS TWO IN HOSPITAL Husband Uses Axe to Chas tise His Wife. After inflicting Injuries upon his wife from which it is said she cannot recover and then cutting his own throat, Norman Snyder of Wlnchcll Mountain, In Con necticut, and his wife were taken to the same hospital in Sharon, Conn., thirty miles away. Each Is thoroughly con vinced that nothing can kill their love. which, each said, la responsible for their precarious condition. And this Is how It occurred : Mrs. Snyder, a pretty young woman, wished to accompany 'Anthony Donahue, the beau of the mountain, to the' movies In Mlllcrton, N. Y., a little town snug ging at the foot of the hill Just over the State line. Anthony Is not without local fame, having been shot at twice from the darkness on the mountain. Anthony always has been popular. He and Mrs. Snyder started to the movies. Mr. Snyder learned of her In tention and her escort and followed with an axe. He overtook Mrs. Snyder and struck her many times with the blade, cutting eleven gashes In her head. Injur ing her brain, broke her fingers, blacked her eyes nnd otherwise chastised her. Beaten and bleeding, believing tnat she wan ilvlncr. Rhn tnM him that she "loved him Just as much as evir" una kissed him good-by. She was rushed In an automobile to the hospital In Sharon, the only one within thirty miles of Win- chell Mountain. Mr. Snyder was so touched at his wife's attitude that he promptly cut his throat. He was bundled Into another car and taken to the hospital too. After an operation upon his wife she regained consciousness long enough to send a mes sage of undying devotion to him. He sent a similar message to her and con tinued to send them until he lost con sciousness from loss of blood. Mr. Donahue had not been found on or under tho mountain during the night.

But there Is one kid In Clifton who Is In for an awful licking from the other kids. Yesterday the pickets saw htm marohlng right in the front door with ihls books while a powerful maternal parent acted as bodyguard. Just watt till ho tries to go to school without his mother 1 The kids who had vanished during school hours had all been piped back In some mysterious manner last night, and they celebrated their strike by marching the streets and banging on dlshpans and producing sweet and harmonious sounds with the aid of tin cans. Grownup folk trying to read their papers didn't all like this stuff, but the mothers who are sup porting the strike of the kids went ahead with plans for a big mass meeting to be held on Monday night. Then they will voice their Indignation over the removal of Principal Peffer after he had refused to pass the son of WlllUm C. Jackson, president of tho Board of Education, In examinations.

Rolls of paper that had remained out side the plant of the Publishers Print ing Co.. 207 West Twenty-fifth street, for several days were taken In yester day Snd the publishers consider the moving of the paper a defeat for the striking pressmen and paper handlers of their plant who have been on strike ilnce Saturday. The strike probably Is the most com plicated that has come to publio atten tion tn some time. James J. Bagley of franklin Union 23, and Bernard Nolan, president of Pressmen's Union 51, thoj two unions principally affected by the strike, say they are affiliated with the A. F. of L. In a statement issued by the Publishers Printing Co., the latter say ihey are operating a strictly union shop and the local unions have revolted from the A. F. of 1. The strikers are called members uf the dissenting union by the printing company's statement, which also says that besides scoring a moral victory by the moving of the 15,0(7!) pounds of paper that had been on tho sidewalk they also received a large quantity of Ink. ' Tho striking union had stated that this paper would not be taken into tho plant and the Issues of several magH zlnes, among them the JAterary Digett, would not be got out.

SAYS BDRR GOT CAR WRIT IMPROPERLY Manhattan and Queens Lino's Counsol Attacks City Of ficial's Affidavit. HEARING IS ADJOURNED Hylan Representative Declares Nixon Has No Right to Interfere. Justice Finch, sitting In Part I., Spe cial Term of the Supreme Court, heard counsel for both sides yesterday on the application of Corporation Counsel Burr for a writ of prohibition directing Lewis Nixon, Public Service Commissioner, o desist from further proceedings In tho application of the receivers for the Man hattan and Queens Traction Corporation for an Increase In the rates of fares Jon that company's lines. He granted until Wednesday for the filing of briefs, 'although Corporation Counsel Burr said 1 he was prepared to file his Immediately, j and adjourned further hearing of the arguments until Thursday. Everj seat Inside the court room rail was filled with an array of attorneys representing all Uie traction companies In Manhattan, Brooklyn and The Bronx, who listened attentively to the argu ments of the Corporation Counsel, Terence Farley, counsel for the Public Service Commission, nnd Vincent B. Robertson, representative of William R. Begg and Arthur C. Hume, receivers of the traction line, whose application for a hearing Tuesday brought about the prohibitory writ. 1 Mr. Robertson asserted that the ap plication of the receivers for permission to Increase the fare on the Manhattan and Queens lines was not a test case upon which the other companies under the Jurisdiction of the Publio Service Commission might see fit to act later. He said : "The receivers of this line never could keep pace with the Increased cost of operation. In August, we were forced to give employees a 10 per cent wage increase and this was followed recently by a 16 per cent Increase. We can get no new money and unless an In crease of fare Is obtained we muFt stop operating. We do not seek the abroga tion of existing contracts with the city and relief Is asked as an emergency measure. Neither Is It sought In order to pay a return on tho money tied up In the company, but it is felt that the blow of the lines discontinuing will fall eventually upon all citizens having prop erty if people who get service do not pay Its full value. Corporation Counsel Burr, supporting the writ of prohibition application, called particular attention to one point In the traction company's contract with the city which provides that in case of vio lations of the fare terms the property of the corporation would revert to the City of New York on ten days' notice. Mr. Burr said that the Public Service Commissioner has no right to Interfere with a contract existing between a pub. 11c service corporation and a municipal ity and that this contention was borne out by a recent decision of the Court of Appeals. Continuing, ho said: There Is a great danger. If the Pub lie Service Commissioner Is right In his contention as to his power to change rates. Railroads, whenever they find themselves In temporary financial diffi culties, might appeal to him and have fares Increased out of hand." Mr. Farley contended that as a matter of law the writ of prohibition which now ties the hands of the Public Service Commissioner was Improperly granted. He referred to' Mr. Burr's affidavit upon which the writ was Issued as an "ex traordinary document called an affi davit which cites the Constitution. Railway Law, Public Service Law and Court of Appeal, decisions over the Corporation Counsel's signature." He said Mr. Burr failed to disclose his sources of Information and grounds for belief that the meetftig which he sought to have prohibited was called for the purpose of Increasing the fares on the traction lines In question. Mr. Farley denied that there was any Indication that such was the purpose or the meet ing. All the attorneys clamored for an Immediate decision, but failed to agree on the proposition that the stay be va cated to permit the Public Service Com missioner, who was an Interested audi tor, to proceed with his Investigations.
