MAURETAN1A TO CUT
FIVE HOURS OFF TIME
Cunard Line Ship Will
Make Plymouth in Five
Days Flat.

Cherbourg Call Deferred to!
Make Ocean 'Express Ser
vice' to England.
TRAINS TO MEET VESSEL
Passengers Sailing September;
5 May Dine in London at
10 A. M. on 10th.
The Cunard Line steamship Maure
tania, fastest passenger ship in the
world, intends to cut down the present
record for the passage between New
York and Plymouth, and will start on
what the company terms "the express
| service*" when she sails from this port
September 5. Five days' actual time
Is the mark the liner aims at and, ac
cording to officials of the company,
there is every probability the ship can
J do this on every ^rip.
The present world's speed record for
the transatlantic voyage from New
York to Cherbourg, Southampton and
Plymouth, is held by the Mauretanta,
which completed the trip eastward to
Cherbourg in 5 days 8 hours and ?
minutes. July 24.
{ To meet the urgent neessity of quick
; travel from New York to London, the
Cunard officials changed the route ordi
narily taken by the ship, awl hence
I forth her first port of call will be
Plymouth instead of Cherbourg. The
liner will proceed to Cherbourg from
Plymouth, making the French port at
the same time as formerly, and will
then go to Southampton. Cherbourg
was made first under the present route,
then Southampton.
. Boat Trains to London.
Arrangements have been made to run
j special boat trains from Plymouth to
j London, making the distance in four
hours and thirty minutes. Thus, with
sailing at 10 o'clock, passengers will be
able to eat dinner in London the even
ing of the fifth day. Passengers for
PArls will be there for breakfast the
following morning, and the London
bound travelers will reach London be
fore the big ship has made Cherbourg.
The boat train will be run alongside
the ship at the dock in Plymouth and
arrangements will be made In advance
j for chair accommodations. Passengers
| will step from ship to train, not the
ordinary Plymouth express, but a spe
cial right of way train to London.
Coincident with establishment of the
"express service," the rates will be
lower, according to the custom of the
I company, which puts the "winter rates"
j into effect September 1. These rates
are 10 per cent, lower than those to
day and continue until February. The
first sailing under the new service will
I therefore come Just within the time of
the reduced rates.
Time Is Demonstrated.
Since conversion of the Mauretanla
Into an oil burning ship <ast May line
officials say they have been able to
figure the running time to within five
minutes. This Is demonstrated by the
record made the last three rrlps east
ward to Cherbourg when the difference |
between trips was but two and three
minutes each. In addition to the desire
for speed, the officials of the company
decided Plymouth offered better faclll- |
ties for handling passenger traffic. In
asmuch as two of the largest British i
railways run their express trains there.
The London and Southwest Railway
run trains to Plymouth from the Water
loo station, London, and the Great
Western Railway operates from the
Paddington station. There are also at j
least eight fast express trains from the
port to Tsmdon each day.
Thus, hour by hour, trip by trip, the
transatlantic trip is being shortened
and new records are being hung up by
the speedy liner which la now to at
tempt the five day run.
COLDEST AUG. 21 BRINGS
COATS AND STEAM HEAT
Thermometer Goes 1.4 De
grees Lower Than Record.
Eight overcoat* and steam heat made
their appearance In New York yester
day morning, the coldest August 21 on
record. The bubble of the radiator
sounded on many of the early trains
and ferries that brought commuters to
New York, and at least half of the men
who braved the forward decks of the
boats In the Hudson and East rivers
and across the bay from *5taten Island
wore overcoats. The others turned their
collars up and did not seem to he es
pecially pleased with such a cold day
In August.
The day, however, wljile a record for
August 21, was not a record for the
month. The thermometer reached 55
degrees, 1.4 degrees lower than any
other mark ever achieved on an August
21, but. the record for August 22 Is
53 degrees. On several August days In
recent years the mercury has gone even
lower than that.
The cold weather of yesterday and the
previous night followed two or three
days of Intense and sweltering heat,
which caused several deaths and many
prostrations. The thermometer rose
gradually yesterday after seven o'clock,
but the whole day was cool and pleas
ant. But last night blankets continued
to be In demand In bedrooms and there
is not much prospect, according to the
forecast, of any great heat to-day.

Arrested So Many Times
Pugilist Loses His Count
JOSEPH MAZZO of 905 New Jer
sey avenue, a pugilist known
as Joe Sullivan. arraigned be
fore Magistrate Miller In the Ja
maica Court yesterday on a charge
of burglary, told the court that he
had been arrested so r^any times he
had lost track of the number.
"Five times?" asked the Magis
trate.
"To tell the truth, I don't know."
said Mazzo. "Ever since I was a
kid I've been doing time off and on.
I've lost t^ack of the number of
times."
"Then with your experience you
ought to be able to tell how much
ball I should hold you in."
"A thousand dollars," said the
prisoner.
"You are too conservative," said
the Magistrate "I'll make it $5,000
and set the hearing for Friday."
Mazzo was accused of breaking
into a garage and stealing a motor
cycle.
FREE STATE TIES UP
VALERA FUND HERE
Continued from First Page.
after having participated In treaty nego
tiations as economic and financial ad
viser to the Irish delegation. Since that
time he has conferred with members and
leaders of the Irregulars, from whom
he says he learned that they considered
that the present Provisional Government
of Ireland is not entitled to the property
in this country and should not be per
mitted to turn It over for the benefit of
the Irish Free State.
In July Smlddy was directed by Col
lins to ascertain what funds were de
posited here. Thereupon he talked with
Healy, a clerk in actual charge of the
New York office of the Dail. Smlddy
said that Healy. although fully aware
of his credentials as a representative of
Collins, refused to recognize any right
he might have and to.give any lnforma
tlon as to the funds here.
Smlddy also says that Healy's prede
cessor, Gilbert E. Ward, who is one of
the defendants, was discharged from the
New York office because he refused to
give information sought and sympa
thized with the Irregulars. He says
Healy since that time In the conduct of
the office, has continued to manifest
[sympathy with the1 Irregulars and has
given information either reluctantly or
has refused to give any Information at
all relating to the Irish funds.
Sees Trust Violated.
! When Healy was asked by Smlddy to
locate the funds he said he believed
there was some money on deposit with
the Harrlman National Bank. He later
said he had learned nothing further con
cerning other deposits. Smiddy then ob
tained certain information from Ireland
and interviewed the safe deposit com
panies. ascertaining that in May of this
year O'Mara rented safe deposit boxes
In his own name and In the name of
Ward. These two gave a power of at
torney to Healy, cards of the companies
show, he asserts.
Smlddy says he was informed by rep- |
resentatlves of the safe deposit com
panies that in June Healy had opened |
j some of the boxes. This was shortly
before the time when Healy said he i
knew nothing about the securities In i
question!. There is no Insinuation tna't!
Healy removed any of the securities I
from the boxes. All the acts of O'Mara,;
however. In renting the boxes and mak
ing the deposits, Smiddy says, were!
in violation of the trust agreement un- j
der which O'Mara obtained control of!
the funds, De Valera not being In this |
country at the time.
Law the Only Remedy.
Estimates as to the total amount of
money collected In this countrv largely
through the activity of De Valera and
his lieutenants have varied, the highest
estimates placing the amount at $7,000,
000. For a long tifne the money was
deposited in various banks in De
Valera's name, but was supposed to
be held in trust by a committee of three
consisting of De Valera, Bishop jFogarty
and James O'Mara. for the Irish Parlia
ment or Dail Eireann. When the Ilrsh
peace treaty was signed the Free State
Irish held that De Valera should no
longer have custody of the funds in
this country and that he ahould be de
prived of the right to make further
collections. The point was a matter of
discussion and argument In Irish circles
for a long time. Notwithstanding pro
tests, it Is asserted, at least $2."O,000 and
possibly much more, was withdrawn
from the fund early in this year.
This reported Incident, perhaps more
than any other one thing, led to a series
of quiet Inquiries as to the state of the
fund and the disbursements that had
been made from It from tim.? to time.
Those who were opposing the De Valera
faction contended after they started
these inquiries that they could get no
satisfactory information from D< Valera
or his secretary. Harry Boland, and
that from all Indications the whole af
fair was In a tangle It would take
monthH to straighten out.
Legal proceedings. It was agreed by
many, provided the only means of get
ting at the truth and conserving what
might be left of the fund. It Is believed
that those who held this opinion com
municated their views to Collins and
Griffith on the other side of the At
lantic and that the proceedings started
yesterday are the outcome.
The Plaintiffs.
The plaintiffs to the action. as set
forth In the moving papers are The Irish
Free State, the Provisional Government
of Ireland, Michael Collins as chairman
of the provisional Government of Ihe
Irish Free State, the Dall Elreann, Ar
thur Griffith as President or the Acting
President of Pall Elreann ; Michael Col
lins as Minister of Finance., and Michael
Fogarty (Bishop of Limerick) as Trus
tee under a trust agreement for the
administration of funds In the United
States.
The plaintiffs are given ten days to
effect service on the respondents per
sonally, and thirty days in which to
effect service by publication. O'Mara,
Do Valera and Ward are not In this
country at present and hence must be
served by publication.
Stephen O'Mara, former Lord Mayor
of Limerick, came to this country
Inst December as "ambassador of the
ir Ish republic." When Henry Poland,
Dc Valera's secretary, who was recently
assassinated In Ireland, left the United
States to vote at the meeting of the
Dall Elreann on the Irish treaty* with
Engtnnd, O'Mara became fiscal repre
sentative of the republic here.
At home he spent months In prison
for his republican activities. Even when
the treaty was signed he predicted there
would be a "referendum" to the Irish
people and ultimately Ireland would be
come absolutely Independent of British
rule.
"Whether the Dall accepts the treaty
or not," he said, "Is a useless question.
Ireland has set out on a long Journey
for Independence. She will eventually
accomplish It. 8hr? accepts the treaty
n<w like a wanderer who rests awhile
of the road."
O'Mara has restless, keen blue eyes
and an unruly shock of hair similar to
(hat of Michael Collins. He still showed
the effects of his term In Limerick Jail
when he was herp last winter.
EXPECTS 10 FASTEST
AIRPLANES FOR O.S.
Gen. Mitchell Says the Slowest
of Them Will Cover 200
Miles an Hour.
NO TWO ARE JUST ALIKE
Army to Have Newest Type of
Pursuit Fliers in Operation
in Two Months.
Brig-Gen. William Mitchell, assistant
chief of the United States air service,
announced yesterday that within two
months or less the United States will
have in operation ten pursuit planes, all
o: them of novel types, which he expects
to be the fastest fliers In the world.
The slowest of them. Gen. Mitchell
said, ought easily to cover 200 miles an
hour. No two of the models will be
precisely alike, and In them will be In
troduced Innovations In aircraft con
struction. The General made this state
ment In the Vanderbllt Hotel after hav
ing completed a tour of inspection In
cluding the factories In which these
planes are now approaching completion.
Ii is expected they will be all finished
In time to take part In the Pulitzer air
plane races In Detroit next October and
In other speed tests.
These Government planes are being
built In the shops of the Loentng Aero
nautical Engineering Corporation, the
Curtlss Aeroplane and Motor Corpora
tion. the Lawrence Sperry Aircraft Com
pany and the Thomas-Morse Aircraft
Corporation. The motors are being sup
plied by the Wright Aeronautical Cor
poration of Paterson. X. J.; the Curtlss
Corporation and the Packard Motor Cat
Company of Detroit.
Skills for Landing.
The Thomas-Morse planes are to be
all metal, equipped with 350 to 100
horse power Wright motors. Lawrence
Sperry has Incorporated In his new type
pursuit planes several innovations. The
pilot, by touching a button, may release
and drop to the ground at will the en
tire rubber tired running gear ^fter
having taken the air. The whole con
struction then remaining beneath the
fuselage Is folded up. thus greatly re
ducing wind resistance. When the pilot
comes to make a landing he brings into
play a set of skids fitted under fuselage
and tall and equipped with shock ab
sorbers. these taking the place of the
wheeled running gear.
Gen. Mitchell said he had witnessed
tests made Inst Friday of this device
by Mr. Sperry, president of the com
pany, in Fapmlngdale, L. I., in which
three successive landings were made
with a 60 horse power service type of
biplatfe with a speed of seventy-five
miles an hour. These craft ordinarily
require a roll of 800 feet before being
brought to a stop. Mr. Sperry. the Gen
eral said, halted his skid equipped plane
after a roll of less than fifty feet.
"And that difference," said Gen.
Mitchell, "might be a vital one If a
pilot were forced to make a landing, let
as say, on a tennis court."
Radiators In Wing*.
One of the novelties incorporated In
the Curtlss snips is that they have their
radiators ins alle 1 in their wings. They
will take the'r initial flights this month
and the first of the Sperry planes will
be In operation soon after. All the craft
are from 50 to 95 per cent, completed.
'The Loentng planes will have 600 horse
j prwer Packard motors.
"Last year." said Gerv Mitchell, "the
Air Service devoted its chief attention to
devsloping the possibilities of bombing
attacks upon sea craft. This year we
made our principal objective the Inten
sive development of the pursuit plane.
We therefore selected four of the most
progressive and reliable airplane build
ers and virtually gave them carte
blanche to develop the Tastest pursuit
planes consistent with safety and other
essential qualities. I have seen enough
already to be confident the results will
be so Important that this will prove to
have been one of the greatest impulses
ever given to military aviation In the
history of human flight"

His own experience as executor
led him to change his will
A MAN, after serving as executor under the will of
a friend, added a codicil to his own will, appoint
ing a trust company as co-cxecutor to act with his
brother.
"I found," he wrote his attorney, "that, as my
friend's executor, I lacked the time, experience and
professional knowledge which would enable me to
discharge my duties as he would have wished. My
brother welcomes my suggestion that he have the
help of a trust company in looking after the in
terests of my wife and children."
It is no reflection on the ability or integrity of the individ
ual whom you may have named executor to make a trust com
pany co-executor. By so doing you will be relieving him of
a great burden of responsibility and you will make certain that
the affairs of your family will be left in competent as well as
interested hands.
