Did you know that the rulo Insisting on uniform rates for taxlcabs and the requirement that those rates bo posted applied just ob much to the old hack neys back in 1775? Doesn't it sound familiar to read that the same Mayor Wharton asked for more policemen because of tho danger to pedestrians, especially children, in crossing crowded streets back in the days when motorcars wero unknown?

The American flag waved triumphantly from the masthead of the century-old golf courso here today when two Yankee golfers broke courso records on both the old and new links to qualify for the open golf championship of Great Britain. Enormous throngs, gathered at 'the home hole, broke into tremendous, ap plause when Jock, Hutchison, American professional match nlay champion, first broke the competitive courso record for the 0300-yard Eden courso with a card of CO. Tho word spread that "Long Jim" Barne3 was going like a houso afire also and the whole crowd dashed madly to tho last green at St. Andrews, where they packed twenty deep along tho ap proach to tho pin. Barnes had a fine iron and dropped his putts for a score of 70, a clean stroke dcIow. the record score held by George Duncan, British champion. Golfers have assaulted the ramparts of St. Andrews for ncores oryears, but Duncan's 71 was the best mark ever made until tho elongated American, from his droll putting stance, sank that 70 this morning. Strong Breeae A strong sea breeze swept up the applause and spread it nil over the links, it seemed, as an inspiration to the other fifteen Americans out there fighting It out hole by hole to qualify. Jock Hutchinson led the field early In tho day to qualify with his 140 total.

Hoffner was one of tho late starters, so the gallery would have n chance to look him over. J. H. Klrkwood, tho Australasian champion, had a total of 140, by virtue of a 70 at St. Andrews today.

The scientific beginning of summer means to astronomers the summer solstice. This comes at tho time when the sun strikes perpendicularly on the Tronic of Cancer.

For a half hour tho two officials talked over the gas situation. The fact alone of their conferring together onenly and at length was piquant enough for numerous politicians in tho corridors. Many rumors were set afloat. Members of Council are said to be more friendly to a temporary increase In the price of gas than to foregoing the sums due tbo city from tho price of gas. This latter raovo would jeopar 'dize a reduction in the tax rato which is planned for next year.- Mr. Bodlno conferred yesterday with Mr. Weglcin and emphasized that un less the company obtained speedy re lief it may not be ab'c to pay the 1J1, 000,000 duo next month.

The first step townrd making the Pacific Ocean the chief scene of our naval operations wns taken by Secretary Dcnby's orper oi yesterday strengthening tho Pacific fleet and making it outweigh the Atlantic fleet in fighting force. The order concentrating the whole fleet in the Western ocean lay on Sec retary Denby's desk for weeks nnd Is still there, but a variety of difficulties lay In the way of so dramatic a move. Diplomatically, Oicre always were reasons against any sudden stop which might be Interpreted as indicating an aggrcsslvo policy In tho Far East. The Administration disclaimed any such policy, but disclaimers would hardly serve to end the speculation which a sudden nnd complete change of bacs would start. There is, from the diplomatic stand point, disarmament to be considered. It is a bad time to seek naval disarma ment Immediately after a drastic change of naval policy. lJick Facilities on West Coast From the naval standpoint, too, there wero difficulties. There do not exi't on tho West coast of the United States adequate facilities for taking enre of the whole American bnttle fleet. Tho stntions thero will be strained to dock and repair the capital ships that will be there now unuer nccrcinry Denby's order.

His own foreign policy Is undeveloped, and. as already said, dis armament is nt Htnlco. Altogether the diplomatic situation was felt to be too delicate to permit of so tadical a step to be taken as the sending all at onco of the whole Ameri can fleet to the Pacific.

Question of its genuineness wns settled liy handwrit ing experts who compared it with let ters written by Bntes. The unsigned noto stated that the schooner had been captured by an oil burning craft, something like a sub chaser; that the members of tho crew who were hiding all over the ship, with no chance to escape were being hand cuffed nnd that everything was being taken off. Through the efforts of Mrs. Willis B. Wormcll, of this city, wife of the cap tain or the uecring, and mends, an in vestigation is being conducted by the Department of Commerce, the coast guardand other Government ngencics to establish the fate of tho missing crew, which sonslsted of twelve men besides the captain. They are working on the theory thnt the oil steamer Hewitt, which disappeared in tho same locality at about the same time while bound from Texas to Boston, was captured by tne same pirate crew.

BLACK FLA AGAIN PRICE TWO CENTS Secretary, Himself an Engineer Is Dragon-Fly In Amber of Mine Operators PROPAGANDISTS TROT OUT BOGIE-MAN ARGUMENTS Bewail Possibility of Bolshe vism Concealed in Freling- huysen Measure CLAIM ATTACK IS BIASED Operators Try to Becloud Issue of Profits in Order to Escape Nemesis Hoover ' By GKORGR NOX McCAIN Washington, June 21. In tho final analysis Herbert Hoover Is the storm center of all the agitation over the Fre llnghuysen bill. The Secretary of Commerce is the dragon fly in the amber of tho coal op erators. They are trjing in every way possi ble to becloud the real issue. They nro ducking nnd dodging right and left, hut behind nil their agitation stands the abiding fear of Hoover. As Secretary of Commerce the bill makes him tho inquisitorial and regula tory force of the Government. In particular the anthracite opera tors must pour into his car the story of their operation of the mines, their cost and profits. And do not forget thnt Herbert Hoo ver is himself n mining engineer, one of; tho grcntest in tho world. Must Reckon With Hoover Let it not escape the memory either mac during the past six years he has been dealing with the craftiest and most oleaginous gentlemen of Europe, the fcod handlers nnd would-be profi teers of Western Europe. Finnlly, Herbert Hoover, once ha starts n thing, invariably ends it; vide his masterful handling of Belgian re lief during and in the Near East Kcr the war. As a matter of fact, that Frellng- i.ujscn oiii in itself is not a dangerous blll. It would be under certain condl- tions; if, Instead of Imposing a fine of $1000 orslx months in jail or both, it made a prison sentence compulsory for falsification of reports or facts, in addi tion to the .fine. Of course, there is a joker in the measure. Congressional and legislative bills sometimes have a Smcgambian con cealed in the woodshed. In this in stance it is liability to a straight charge of perjury in case of false reports. Operators Act Cautiously As a secondary issue, there is the reluctance of coal operators to relin quish high values and accept a moderate profit. The war was responsible for inculcating this. It's the old "get-rlch-quick" idea glorified in industry. Fear of Hoover's searching interro gations, his knowledge of tho mining Industry and his wide experience with captains of industry is deterring the operators. An outstandng feature of the situa tion hero is tho effort of the National Coal Association nnd its individual units to lead the public's mind away irom iuc rem issue. Hero are some of the things they are snjlng : First They aro singling out the coal business for nn initial attack of in quiry and regulation that will ulti mately become general. Second It's n long step toward so cialism and bolshevisin. Third Gallery play to the Radicals who will ultimately control this situa tion. Fourth An Invasion of private rights that is discriminatory, indefensive and unconstitutional. Fifth It will lead to the nationali zation of coal mines nud In the end the transportation industry of the Nation. Principally, however, behind all thin very clcer propaganda is the fear of Continued nn 1'ace I'.lk'ht.
