tpecial Despatch to Tin New York Heialp.
?w York Hfrald Unman, I
Washington. D. C., June 10. I
Some of the largest corporations in
the country have offered to lend their
efficiency experts an counsel for the
Government reorganization which is
aoout to take place. The offers have
come from such Arms as the United
States Steel Corporation, the Standard
Oil Company and others, and it is expected
that the Government will accept
the services of the men who have
put these institutions on a highly organized
plane, breaking away entirely
from the clumsy costly practices now
in force.
Also it was made known that abolition
of all present purchasing and selling
agencies of the Government and
creation of a single purchasing and
selling agency to take their place is
to be the first move of the joint Con
greesional Reorganization Commission
In promoting governmental economy.
Commission Meets Monday.
The commission containing three Senators
and three Representatives, together
with Walter F. Brown, the President's
representative, is to meet next
Monday in pursuance of their scheme,
which already has been introduced in
the form of a bill in the Senate by
Senator McCormick. (III.).
Enormous waste prevails now in the
competitive system of bidding between
the various governmental agencies. The
records are full of examples of this
character. One specific instance which
made a sensation at the time of its discovery
woa in the case of coal, the Senate
investigation showing that while the
Navy Department bought its coal at
about H u ton the Shipping Board was
paying $22 a ton at about the same time.
When the commission on Government
reorganlzattbn gets to business one of
ine ursi mailers 10 oe considered will
be whether the services of outside efficiency
experts will be accepted. The
expectation is that they will he. although
the probability is that other efficiency
engineers will be engaged, engineers
who will be able to give their
entire time to the work, which may run
for two years, i .
The offers received, members of the
committee believe, are evidence of the
interest being taken In the Government
reorganization work which is Intended
to save the taxpayers a million dollars
a day even if there is to be no curtailment
of Government activities. These
corporations, In a patriotic spirit, are
anxious to make available various econmies

Anttqnatrd llaslne** Methods.
rne general observations made in a
preliminary way have convinced the
ommlttee that untold was'e of public
funds Is resulting In the different departments
and Independent agencies because
of antiquated business methods,
the result of no particular system, but
built up as occasion required, in many
instances causing overlapping and duplication.
'With the application of modern
business methods, such as those
empt>yed In the large corporations, the
feeling is that not less than 20,000 clerks
In Washington can be disposed of. and
perhaps twice that number in the field,

tt Is being demonstrated even at this
early day 'n the undertaking that a
ackftre Is starting against some of the
obvious reforms contemplated. Not less
limn 200 letters have already been received
by the committee protesting
against a report that the United States
Hydraulic Office, at present attached to
the Navy Department, Is to be transferred
to the Department of Commerce
and consolidated there with other agencies
which deal primarily with merchant
Similarly, vigorous protest Is being
made agaist the proposed creation of a
Department of Public Welfare along the
lines advocated by President Harding.
That Is coming mostly from those who
wish to see created a Department of
Education, to be an expansion of the
present Bureau of Education, which under
the present scheme would be a part
of the Department of Public Welfare.

But Reynolds was a member of the
Long Acre Club, and In 1905 he ran
against James J. Martin for Tammany
leadership of the Twenty-seventh Assembly
district. In 1912 he was thrown
out of the Bmplre State Democracy, the
reason given being that he tried to grab
that organization for Tammany.
In January. 1912, when he was president
of the Thomas L?. Reynolds Company,
real estate, he married Miss Mary
House of Little Rock, Ark., but two
months later she sued for separation.
In the same year Jacques Bustanoby,
restaurant proprietor, sued Reynolds for
$250,000. accusing him of alienating the
affections of Mrs. Bustanoby. Thla action
was never brought to trial.
At the same time Reynolds was demanding
a similar sum from his wife's
mother, whom he charged with alienating
the affections of Mrs. Reynolds.
In 1918 Reynolds married one of Rector's
cabar# t singers, but she started
suit a year later for an annulment. She
said her husband had deceived her Into
thinking he was a business associate of
the (Tould* nnd Rockefellers, a power in

Reynolds, a gambler and Broadway
figure, better known in New York by
his former name, Thomas L. Reynolds
was beaten and shot last night by
masked men who attacked him in
front of the ruins of his Seabreeze
Oppra House, across the river from
Daytona. He is in the Bohanna Hospital
here and has only a fighting
chance of life.
Reynolds's opera house was destroyed
last week by fire. Bast night he was
viewing the scene with a real estate
man, Russell Dyman. Two automobiles
drove up and poured forth men whoee
faces were concealed by cloth masks.
Waving revolvers they ordered Reynolds
to throw up his hands and Dyman
to run.
Dyman ran to Reynolds's car. which
was standing In front of the gambler's
home, a block nnd a half away. The
attacking party fired three shots. Two
of the bullets went Into the afr and
the third pierced Reynolds's left lung
an inch from the heart.
The men then threw Reynolds into one
of their care, carried him flj-e miles
down the beach and left him on the road
near Ormond. A man found him unconscious
and took him home, whenct
he was transferred to the hospital.
None of the men who attacked Reynolds
has been Identified. The authorities
believe they were persons who resented
last week's fire, the origin ol
which was mysterious, or that a womar
was Involved.
Thomas L. Reynolds has been well
known In New York for thirty years
He Is 54 years old. His activities hav?
Included those of politician, real estate
operator, oil stock promoter and operator
of a gambling house. He Is ofter
referred to as "The Senator," because al
times he found It advantageous to use
that title. His visiting cards used tc
read, "His Excellency Thomas L,. Reynolds,
Ambassador Plenipotentiary from
the Amason Republic."
In 1918 Judge Mclntyre in General
Sessions fined hlin $250 and sentenced
him to ninety days In the Tombs as a
common gatnbler. Thereafter he wenl
to Europe, having done well with the

"He has done it again," were the
words of Wilson Cross, vice-president
of the American Chamber of Commerce
in London, In introducing Rear
Admiral William S. Sims. IT. S. N., at
a luncheon given in Admiral Slma's
honor by the American Luncheon Club
here to-day.
The remark by Mr. Cross was greeted
with a round of cheers, and when Admiral
Sims spoke he admitted that not:
only had he "done it again" but he
[ would continue doing it. He insisted
, that his speech here was the same as
, that ho had made on many platforms
In the United States, except that "per'
haps we used too energetic adjectives
^ on some occasions."
Later Admiral Sims stated he had
| received Secretary of the Navy Denby's
cable despatch containing excerpts of
. his English-Speaking Union address as
printed in American newspapers and
calling on him to say whether he was
correctly quoted, but the Admiral insisted
that his reply was a matter
purely between Secretary Denby and
Admiral Slma's Reply.
In this connection, it was learned
on excellent authority that Admiral
Sims in his reply stated that it is his
opinion some parts of his address as
printed In the American newspapers j
had been garbled. His answer to Sec-,
retary Denby Is In the form of a
rather brief despatch, and says there
was nothing In his address In question
that ho had not already said,
either In his book or In speeches in the
.United States.
This Inst statement also was brought
out In his speech before the American
Luncheon Club, when, after denouncing
the "people who are opposed to international
cooperation" and asserting that
his English-Speaking Union speech was
f only a repetition of speeches he had
( made In the United States. Admiral
Sims said:
"Perhaps I used more or less energetic
1 adjectives which certain people don't
like, but let us hope It will be amicably
explained away."
He paused a moment during the cheer,
ing and then added:
"But I intend to keep on doing the
same thing." '
This evoked a storm of applause.
/ Denies Favoring Treaty.
ij Admiral Sims denied that he favored
an English speaking treaty of alliance.
I Instead he asked that the two national
I the United States and Great Britain, gel
> together in a decent companionship.
; "If we do that no treaty is needed,"
i he continued. "The future progress and
pea<-e of the world are going to depend
on good feeling between all the peoples
. In the world who speak English. If
, that Is something 1 ought not to say let
them make the best of It."
| Admiral Sims said his critics had
declared lie was "the most popular pro1
British Admiral In the American Navy."
' "I am accused of being pro-British."
he said. "I am. Thirty >;ears ago I
went to France to learn French and I
acquired a sort of a plaster of Paris.
When I went home the people accuse 1
me of being pro-French. 1 was. It la
Impossible to live among people without
learning their good points. I like the
British because they believe In personal
liberty, because they play the game. |
because they nre good sports. I am |
pro-British, pro-French, prn-alllod."
Admiral Sims declared that always
he tried to say what he wanted to say ;
to tell the truth as he understood It.
He feared, however, that he may have
(Tone to an excess In tolling tne triun
sometimes, perhaps last Tuesday, "at
least In the opinion of certain people." I
He related his wartime experiences
with the allied naval commands and
emphasised the cordiality that existed
between the allied officers ami himself. '
! I'rolpnged applause and convulsive
laughter Interrupted him frequently. In
his address to- day he made no direct
references to Amaridans In sympathy >
with the Irish republican movement
Among those present at the luncheon

WHICH Ulcjr (UUIU III uc lulu .-tinunr,
threw down their cigarettes last night
when they heard some one coming
along the sidewalk. One of the cigarettes
fell in a cadi of Wasting powder
which the boys had acquired from
some unreveaied source, and it exploded,
demolishing the hut and burning
the four boys so badly that none
of them is expected to recover.
Albert Scoggi of 19 Union avenue,

of Mariners Harbor.
The boys erected the hut. which was
about Ave feet square, of odd piece# of
lumber more than a week ago, and every
afternoon after school and almost every
night after dinner they went into the hut
and smoked. According to other boys
who played with them, but who had no
hand in the building of the hut, it was
constructed solely as a place where
cigarettes, lorbiddcn at home, could be
indulged In.
hast night the four boys went into the
hut about 7 o'clock, and all of them
lighted cigarettes. Two or three times
their parents had expressed suspicion of
the things that went on in the hut, and
the boys were careful. As soon as they
heard some one coming along the walk
they threw down their cigarettes, one ?f
them falling Into the ca?\ of powder. The
explosion followed Immediately.
The noise of the blast was heard as far
away a? Richmond Terrace, the principal
business thoroughfare of Mariners' Harbor,
and between fifty and seventy-five
persons hurried to Arlington avttiue to
see what had occurred. They found the
hut in ruins and the four ooys lying unconscious
on the ground, their clothing
on fire and their fscee, hands and bodies
badly scorched. The crowd stamped out
the flames. After extinguishing the fire

wealthy Dakewood citizen, and Marlar
McArdle. Mrs. Kaber's daughter, thret

here facing trial for the murder ol
Kabor two years ago. Mrs. Mar?
Brickel, 69. mother of Mrs. Kaber. ha.been
in Jail several days in default ol
15,000 ball.
Mrs. Kaber and Miss McArdle were
brought back from New York, where
they were arrested about a week ago,
by Chief of Police Peter S. Christensen
and Lakewood police.
In addition, two other women and a
man. incriminated by Mrs. Kaber in a
confession in New York early to-day,
were In custody, while tlio police sought
two other men in connection with the
crime. Prosecutor Stanton said he
would ask that Mrs. Kaber be tried at
this term of court, which ends July 1.
One of the women under arrest, according
to Mrs. Kabcr's confession as
related by I?rosecutor Stanton, planned
the murder of Kaber, who was stabbed
twentv-four times She was taken into
custody at Sandusky, and Is alleged to
have concert J a poison, later hiring the
assassin. The man figures in Mrs.
Kaber's confession, according to Stanton,
as one of tho agents who hired the
two other men to stab Kaber. while the
second woman, according to Mrs. Kaber's
statements, knew of the plot to commit
the murder. The two men at large,
Stanton declares, are the actual hired
In her confession Mrs. Kaber declared
the men were hired to "beat up"
Kaber "to make him treat her better."
The poison was given to him. according
to the confession, "as medicine to
cure his bad habits." She did not know
it was poison, Mrs. Kaber Insists, declaring
It waj? given to her as medicine.
Although Mrs. Kaber declared she
refused to pay the hired foreigners
when she learned they had murdered
her husband, one of the men being
sought Is alleged to have left behind In
his flight an automobile, said to have
been given to him in payment for his
part In the crime. The men were to act
as "ghosts," Mrs. Kaber's confession
states. She said Kaber had never believed
In ghosts or spirits, and that he
probably fought with the men when he
awakened and found them by his bedside,
the stabbing resulting.
Proseeutor Stanton Is prepared to eonfront
the three prisoners with Mrs. Kaber
and her daughter In the. hope that
the prisoners will tell what they know
of the murder.

"^THEN is a schoolgirl's skirt

That question, which already
is puzzling the managers
of the Oswego State Normal ]
School, is to be passed to tne
State educational authorities at
Albany. The controversy began
when Dr. James G. Riggs sent a
girl home because he thought her
skirt was too short and ordered
four others to let theirs out a
tuck or two.
Friends of the girls declare the i

against Ravensky by looking through
the plate glass window of the cafe. He
saw the defendant pour what appeared
to be whiskey into two glasses and carry
them to patrons in a rear room. When
the patrolman entered, Ravensky threw
the liquor on the floor, but Blaha found J
more than a quart of whiskey behind
the bar.

It became known yesterday that at
least two or three, and probably more,
of the alleged Illegal trade combinations
known as the "Alnsworth group." whoso
investigation was suspended by Mr. Untermyer
on their promise to dissolve, are
seeking ways by which to resume business.
An amazing feature of the situation
is that these combinations are trying
to use the published statement of
Government officials, including Herbert
Hoover, Secretary of Commerce, and
Harry M. Daugherty, Attorney-General.

Under date of June 7. Clark MtKereher,
counsel for Albert A. Ainsworth,
socr>itary of the various exchanges
referred to?thirteen in number,
and all affecting building material
?wrote to Samuel Untermyer directing
his attention to the statements attributed
to the two Cabinet officials.
Discrimination Intimated.
The ireount of Secretary Hoover's
a!k to the chemical men Is In part as
follows :
"At the meeting with the chemical
men. Secretary Hoover warned against
o%*erproductlon of chemicals, acids crude
drugs. that might occur because of
the more or less lack of knowledge lit
the Industry of the extent of demand.
Such a situation is entirely possible, ha
pointed out. citing as an example the
condition In the automobile tire market
a short time ago. He declared that tha
way to control the matter Is to Inaugurate
a system whereby frequent and accurate
.statistics would be avallablo to
all Interested."
In his letter to Mr. Vntarmyer Mr.
McKercher attaches a ropy of the reported
remarks of Mr. Hoover and then
goes into the testimony that was given
before the Hockwood committee concerning
the Brass and Copper Statistical
Kxchange, one of those whose dissolution
was demanded and promised.
His lettir says In part:
That exchange fthe Brass and
Copper) did not report quotations
and did not report any price secured
on closed business. They did report
total tonnage monthly on production
and sales without any detail as to
price, destination of goods or Identity
of customers. That, of course, all
ceased In strict ronfonnlfv fo resolu.
tlon which you have.
It Is very difficult for many of those

In New York on the collection and
distribution of this statistical data >
pertaining to their general, country- |
w-|de business, when the Federal authorities
are approving the very
things they believe will he of general |
and lasting benefit to the whole trade.
I have used the B-ass and Copper
Exchange as an example. There ara
others In the sante situation shown
on the list furnished to you. . . .
Will It be possible for you to give
this subject some consideration before
you leave and let me have your
views on It?specifically whether It
will be feasible to compile this statistical
data, duplications of all operations

that the authorities believe will ba
