The absence of women at the registration
booths was noted yesterday in
Harlem and The Bronx, but elsewhere,
particularly in the neighborhood 01
Columbia University, women made a
good showing. The light turnout was
attributed to Columbus Day and Yom
Klppur and also to the cold weather.
Leaders of both Republican and Democratic
parties saw no cause for alarm
\ at the slump and predicted that there
will be a good showing to-morrow and
Saturday. Saturday the booths will be
open from 7 A. M. until 10:30 P. M.

Estimate Board Will Face rro
tests and Suggestions
From Public,
When the Board of Estimate meeti
to-day for a second public hearing or
the budget for 1922 It will be with sev.
cral Important decisions already madi
as a result of the protests and sugge?
tions made at the flrst hearing and thai
is In spite of the fact, according to th<
committee on non-partisan facts, tha
there were present at that hearing onlj
one representative taxpayer and rem
payer for each $10,000,000 In the budget
Those aeeomDllKhments are:
The $18,000,000 of school money ex
pc-cted from the State, which at first hac
not been counted In tho budget total foi
schools, will bo placed In, and at thi
same time It will be made clear that th<
net for New York city's taxpayers Wil
be $18,000,000 less.
Comparisons giving total costs fronr
all sources, as well aa from the budget
will be issued.
Regular all year employees of the De
partment of Plant and Structures, which
operates the ferries, buses and municipa
trolley lines, will be properly budgetet
instead of being lumped together lr
Items for wages and temporary employees,
as in the tentative budget.
The committee regards this last decision
as Important "because tho questior
of public ownership and operation ol
utilities is a central question in the campaign
and should not be confused bj
any preventable unclearness In the budget
In addition to the foregoing It wai
made clear that the Hylan admlnlstra
tlon Is not yet ready to risk Its recorc
breaking budget for next year to the ap
proval of the voters on election day.
David Hlrshfleld, Commissioner of Accounts,
who is making some budget Investigations
for the Mayor, announced
he has been able to llnd ways of cutting
at least 51.600,000 from the $354,000,000
total, as now proposed. He added
that he expects to be able to chop th<
total down still further and, perhaps
approximate the $4,500,000 which Comptroller
Charles L. Craig said would have
to come out of the budget before he
would approve It.
Despite the apparent determination ol
the Administration at first not to let
public education suffer In at y respect
as It did this year In making up the
budget, the budget as now fixed will not
be sufficient In a number of particulars,
especially as regards teaching of English
to foreigners in evening classes
according to a statement by Francei
Perkins, secretary of the Council on Immigrant
That statement points out that, while
provision is made for 76,154 sessions, oi
about the same number as will have
been held by the end of this year, the
appropriation for the remainder of thl?
year Is only $159,595, or about one-third
of the amount needed to run these
classes to the flrst of next year. Further,
the statement points out, the classes have
been able to go ahead this far onh
through transfer of funds from othci
evening elementary school Items; thai
those Items have been fixed in next year'?
budget at this year's figure lees the
transferred amounts, so there will remain
no source from which to draw additional
funds to take care of any increase
over the anticipated 1922 attendance.
Ex Police Commissioner Becomes
One of Mayor's Aids.
Frederick A. Wallis, an unsuccessful
candidate for the Republican-Coalition
nomination for Mayor, became chairman
of the Hylan general campaign con-mltteo
last night. Commissioner of Immigration
at Rills Island by appointment
of President Wilson, Mr. Wallis will be
relieved of that position as soon as the
nomination of Robert E. Tod for the
post by President Harding is confirmed
by tho Senate. He resigned in May, but
was requested to remain until October.
The appointment of Mr. Wallis will
not clash with the authority of John H.
Delaney, who Is chairman Of the city
committee of the Hylan League and
general manager of the campaign.
"After several talks with the Mayor,
under whom I served as Police Commissioner,"
said Mr. Wallis, "and with
many prominent citizens or both partie*,
I deem It my civic duty to devote
all my time between now and November
8 to the reelection of the Hylan administration.
Having been e!os?ly assoclated
with the Mayor In an official capacity
I have had the opportunity to
study him closely. Hla honeaty has
made a deep Impression upon me. He la
one of the most faithful public officials
I have ever met."
Daughter of Mr*. Kaber Acquitted

Cijkwland, Oct 12.?Marian McArdlo,
twenty-year-old daughter of Mra. Eva
Catherine Kaber, ?ai found not guilty

Public Utility Commission's 7

Trknton', Oct. 12.?The price of a ride
on the cars of the Public Service Railway
Company, operating In 141 municipalities
In this State, was fixed at 8

Circuit Court and Judge Rellatab of
the United States District Court, was not
unanimous In its findings, as Judge
Davis filed a dissenting opinion.
A temporary Injunction 1ms been
granted by the court restraining the
Public Utility Commission from enforcing
Its order of July 21 last fixing the
maximum rate of fare at 7 cents, with
2 cents for each initial transfer. Under
the decision the car company must sell
four tickets for 30 cents or one ticket
for 8 cents. Transfers are 1 cent each.
The court provides that the company
shall give each rider a receipt for the
increased fare, so that in the event that
the higher fare is not sustained on the
final hearing the excess may bo returned
to the riders.
The theory of the court was that the
rate of fare allowed by the utility commission
actually results in confiscation
of property in violation of the fourteenth
amendment of the Constitution. Judge
Dnvis maintained that the order of the
commission was presuir-ptlvely right and
should not be disturbed unless It clearly
appeared tu oc wruns.
