of rapid transit. The city has spent
approximately $15,000,000 to build tho
unnwora it. As it now stands, tho
road cannot bp successfully operated
by tho. city without great loss. Tho

acted upon this agreement, but now,
after tho latse of three months, pro
poses numerous amendments' which can
only delay the operation of the road.

witness stni.d.
The Rev. Robert E. Johnson. "The
Raiding Parson." died nt 5:30 o'clock
this morning nt his home, 1135 South
Fifty -second street. His health was
shattered by his strenuous work as u
prohibition enforcement aeeut.
At the clergyman'tf'-bertsfde'whrn he
died were his wife, his two sons and
two of his daughters. A third daugh
ter, Miss Irene B. Johnson, is In
Florence, Italy, as director of recreatiou
work for the Y. M. O. A.
Dr. Johnson was fifty-seven years i
old and was in tne ministry iniriy-
three yeara. All during nis minis
terial career he had been a foe of liquor,
nnd when prohibition came ho literally
threw himself Into the fight to enforce
the law. ,
Physically he appeared wen quniincti
for the enforcement work, which took
him to numerous towns in Pennsyl
vania and New Jersey, and in which
there was always an clement of dan
ger. He was five feet, ten inches tall
and weighed 175 pounds.

Lester Ncwhnll. accused of the mur

nnd seemed utterly oblivious of the
proceedings.
Newhnll, wearing the old green suit
which he had on when he wns first nr
rested for the telephone girl's murder,
was brought to City Hall at 0:30. As
soon as be was taken from the van he
begged for cigarettes and smoked nine
before the opening of the inquest at 10
o'clock.
"It's great to be' able to walk in the
free air," he said on his way through
the courtyard.
GlrJ'8 Mother Testifies
Mrs. Mary Howard, mother of the
murdered girl, was the first witness
called. She wore mournmg and her face
showed deep lines of grief.
Mrs. Howard glared at Newhall, who
sat within five feet of the witness stand
when she was called. There was no
trace of pity in her glances. When
she nnswered questions she looked
straight at Nowhall Instead of at Sel
lers. "He often threatened the life of Jo
eephlne," testifies Mrs. Howard, "nnd
enured us continual trouble. A year
ago he broke a window of our home to
Bhow his hatred. My son, who was
then a policeman, arrested him ; but we
did not press the matter. He promised
to reform."
Mrs. Howard paused and her eyes
flamed. "But he kept right on In the
same way. Later he threatened to cut
Josephine with a razor. He was ar
rested, but we let tlint drop, too.
"Joseph Skcptln, who boarded with
me. told me he met Newhall nnd New
hnll told him ho would kill Josle unlet-r.
she married him."
Tears In Mother's Eyes
There were tenrs in the motherV
eyes, but she fought them bnck.
Cornelius Howard, brother of thu
girl, testified that two years ngo he had
tried to keep Nowhall from coming to
the Howard home. He sold the pris

of a distant country, which has nn am
ple air service of up-to-daUi fighting
and bombing planes.

Tnke the coast of the United States.
An enemy fleet approaching this coun
try could be met by a swarm of planes.
Irtchtini? nlnnes to nrotect the. slower

In sufficient strength to sink every ship
which would yield to bombing.
Grant thnt battleships cannot bo sunk
from the nir. which is n big concession,
for the airplane Is capable of still fur
ther development. If sufficient airplanes
I went out to meet this licet 100 miles
j from shore nil its smaller units would
be soon destroyed, its submarines, its
' destroyers, its cruisers.
I And the life of the big ships depends
upon its smaller attendants. Once tho
destroyers nnd other scouts nnd pro
tectors of the capital ships were sunk
the enpitnl ships themselves would be
i nt the mercy of hostile submarines.
No nation would risk Its battleships
under conditions in which the other ele
ments of the fleet were certnin tobo
sunk. So the question whether the bat
tleship itself will yield to bombing Is
not of the relative importance that it
seems to be.
Cannot Insure Fleet's Safety
Nor could airplane carriers with the
hostile fleet nrotect it from attack from
n distnnce on a const like tlint of tho
I'nlted States. It is true thnt a fow
fighting plnnes oould hnve destroyed
the bombers which sunk the submarine
last week nnd a carrier could bring
with the enemy fleet fighters ns well
ns bombers of Its own. But so mnny
more fighters could come out from the
shore tiinn could be carried by carrier
ship that this defense would soon he
destroyed.
The lesson if the last war was that
, the submnrine hnd greatly limited the
operation of nnval fleets. The develop
