NO. 36 BRIDGEPORT, CONN., SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1912 PRICE ONE CENT ESTATE WORTH $3,000,000 IS IN LITIGATION Widow Of James Roosevelt Stanley Wants $1 5,000 Al . lowancs Pending Sittlsmsnt HIS FIRST wIfTaLSO WANTS LIKE AMOUNT She Petitions Stamford Probate Court As Guardian Of Three Children ' (Special from United Pres3. Stamford, Feb. 10 There was a bearing in the probate court, today, before Judge Charles D. Lock wood, on the application of Mrs. James Roose velt Shanley of "Rosemont," Stam ford, for an additional allowance of $15,000 pending settlement of her hus band's estate and upon the applica tion of Mrs. Adel CJ. JBucknam, of Greenwico, as guardian of her three minor children, J. Kooseven Stan ley. Jr., olert Ames Shanley and Julia Shanley. for a similar addition al allowance for the care and main tenance of tne children. A year ago Jlo.Ooo was allowed the widow and the same amount was al lowed Mrs. Bucknam as' guardian of the children. II r. Shanley, a wealthy contractor, died in August, 1910, leaving an es tate said to be worth about $3.0J0,(KJ0. Practically all of it was his interest in the estate of his deceased father. Bernard Shanley, a New Jersey con tractor, one-third of whose estate went to the son, James Roosevelt, sub ect, however, to life use by the wid ow of Bernard Shanley. who is alive. The income from James Roosevelt Banley'a share of the estate is about $100,000 a year. A number of claims have been presented against the es tate of James Roosevelt Shanley and 'the solvency of the estate has been questioned. One of the claimants is Mr. Shanley's first wife, now M.a. Adele Bucknam, of Greenwich. mru. Bucknam presented two claims, one for $50o,000 and the other for $400. 000. alleging that Mr. Shanley con tracted to pay these sums to her for her support and maintenance and that of their children at the time of her separation from htm. The executors of the will have disallowed the $500. fW claim and it Is being pressed- In the courts. There has been no speci fic disallowance of the other claim. Aside from Mrs. BucVnam's claims, totalling $900,000, there are other claims growing out of contracts Mr. Shanlev was interested in-at the time of his death. The hanley-Morrlssey Company .of which he was the backer, was making an enlargement of the Erie Cwnal. His death put a stop to the work and, for a time, thlnrs were i-onfused. Tt seemed likely that the oti-te wduld have to procure another contractor to cnmnlete the work and j charge the cost seainst Mr. Phanley's j bond. This dK'icult" had been over-: come. It is understood, and Interests ! friendly to the late Mr. FhBrlev nave gotten toe-ether and nndert''n to complete the work. Tt Is said tht. ratber thn the unfln'hed contracts being a loss to the estate, they will really be a profit. ARMED MEXICANS MUST HOT CROSS AMERICAN BORDER (Special from United Pres. Washington, Feb. 10 The state de partment a refusal to allow armed Mexicans to cross the American bor der was construed nere, today, as the last step on the part of the United States to avoid complications which would necessitate rushing American troops to the Mexican Dorder. Ameri can troops, however .are ready for service at a moment's notice should the Mexican situation not clear soon. Consular reports state that over 40.000 Americans are scattered throughout Mexico and the adminis tration has little doubt that, should American troops cross the Rio Grande, an anti-American uprising would re suit. This consideration, it was au thoritatively stated is the only one which prevents the war department from dispatching troops to the border. War department officials. today, said that, on less than a week's notice. 700,000 men can be mustered along the Rio Grande. Tne moDiie army numbers 34.000 the coast art'liery will add 16.000 to this number and the sta tionary regimen's and avpilahle mil itia will round out the additional 50, ooo. The state department, always the most optimistic branch of th govern ment, today, made no ef'ort to con ceal the seriousness of the situation. A single additional anti-American move in Mexico, it was stated, wMl snfPee to caue an outnourin? of sol diers who will patrol the border '-nm El -pa-o to the e-ulf. while warships can be rushed from Cuban waters in S2 hours.

UNCLE SAM NOW JOINS KAISER WILHELM IN OPEN DOOR POLICY FOR CHINA Action of United States Joining Germany to Preserve Neutrality of New Chinese Republic Receives Warm Praise from German Government This Diplomatic Stroke Will, Which Japan, Russia and for Carving Up Oldest (Special from United Press. Berlin, Feb. 10 With the dawning public realization that this week's ex change of motes between the United States and Germany, seeking to pro tect the . Chinese open door, is prob ably the most important step ever taken in the direction of German American diplomatic co-operation, the German foreign office, through As sistant Foreign Secretary Zimmerman, today gave 'the United Press a state ment of the attitude of the German government. The action of the (United States and Germany in joining . hands to preserve neutrality in China Is now re.ognized as an epooh-making diplomatic achievement, In view of the fact that it is the most Important move ever made jointly by the two nations. While the foreign office naturally w'll not comment on the diplomatic phase of the situation, it is apparent that the Kaiser's government is t-"at-ifled at the success of Count Von Bemstorff in securing the co-operation of the American State Department. The general impression here is that Germany is now in thorough acco d with American diplomacy. The com ment of Ber.in "newspapers is distinct ly favorable to the action of Ambas sador Bernstorfl and Secretary of State Knox. The statement given by the foreign office to the United Press follows: "Secretary of State Knox's answer to Ambassador Count Von Berns'orff's Inquiry concerning America's attitude toward China has caused greait satis faction to Germany. "The scope and object of the American-German exchange of notes were to make It known that the preserva tion of neutrality by all powers to ward Chinese events, is now lav -the mutual interests of both coun'ries, "The note of Secretary of S'ate Knox contains valuable statements of promises given by the powers to abstain- from interven Ion as long as possible amd in' case unexpected Inter vention becomes necessary to assure a joint mutual agreement before tak ing act lorn, "Therefore, the note has been greet ed with satisfaction and pleasure here. It is hoped that the note wi 1 have a favorable effect in China and will facilitate a settlement between -the conflicting Chinese parties." While the foreign office poslt'vely declined to go into further detals. it was learned in semi-official quarters that Germany, feeling isolated in the far east, as against a group composed of Eng'and, Japan and Russia, with their territorial interests and the pos sible designs of one or more of them, turned to America, Neither America nor Germany hav ing territorial designs or interests In China, the exchange of notes has a twofold purpose. First It serves to notify the oher LEADERS MEET IN CONFERENCE TO BOOM TEDDY 6. 0. P. Representatives Ot 15 States In Notable Gather . tog At Chicago Today ADDRESSES MADE BY . SEVERAL GOVERNORS Plan Is To Find Out Roosevelt Sentiment In Nomination For President (Special from United Press.) Chicago. Feb. 10 Enthusiastic lead ers in the movement for the nomina tion of Theodore Roosevelt for Pres ident by the Republican National Convention gathered here from 15 states, today, to attend the confer ence called by the National Roose velt Committee. The conierence was entirely voluntary and in many re spects differed from the usual poli tical gathering. As outlined by Secretary E. W. Sims, of the Roosevelt Committee, the con ference, which began at 10:30. was devoted to two separate meetings. The first was held to a discussion of Roosevelt sentiment that has materi alized in various sections. Addresses by Governors Stubbs of Kansas. Os borne of Michigan, Vesey, of South Dakota, and others were scheduled. The second section of the conference was to consist of a consideration of ways and means for the launching of a Roosevelt campaign and of securing assurances from the former president that, should a general demand for K services be made, he will accept. The deliberations, according to the plans outlined by Alexander H. Revell. presi dent of the Roosevelt committee, were left entirely in the hands of the gov ernors, who, with other promine- t Roosevelt co-operators, composed the executive committee. Governors besides those mentioned who were scheduled to report on the expedience of an out and out Roose velt campaign, to submit proposals for wavs and means were: Aldrich, of Nebraska; Hartley, of Missouri: Bass, f Xev Hampshire Glasscock. of Vest Virfinia and Former Governor Fort, of Nv .Tersev. The conference was stated by its promoters to be in no sense a public demonstration and not more than 40 men were expected to participate, al- It Is Thought,Check Plans England Had in Works Empire in the World powers that America and Germany are unitedly opposed to Individual inter vention and poss:ble territorial designs on the part of any nation. . Second It serves as notice to China that Joint -action by all the powers is -certain if the foreign interests are not protected. The Cologne Gazette, semi-official government organ, today edi'orially praised "the sp'endld attitude of America." This sentiment rePei ts the general feeling in official circles to ward the action of the German am bassador ard the Secretary of State at Washington. MOBILIZING OF JAPANESE TROOPS HAS NOW CEASED. Shanghai, Feb. 10 Reports from the north pay concentration of Japanese troops on the northern border of China has ceased and that many of the Japanese garrisons have been act ually reduced, following the exchange of notes between -Secretary Krox and the German foreign office which have greatly pleased the republican gov ernment. It was feared that Japan's apparent preparations for a land grab would have forced the hands of Eng land and Russ'a and resu'ted In ter ritorial seizures by all three nations. From a source close to Dr. Sun Yat Sen it was learned today that the provisional president of the republic feels that the action of the Urited States and Germany has, for a time at least, checked these plans, which, If carried out, must have precipitated a territorial grab. The German-American stand for the "open door" Is interpreted here ts granting a new lease of life to the Chinese reDubiic JOHN BULL ALARMED AT EXCHANGE OF NOTES. London, Feb. 10--While Winston Churchill's activities in Belfast and Glasgow have served somewhat to distract public attention from the ex change of notes between Germany and the United States, the incident is not being' overlooked or discounted by the foreign office. As Ergland's foreign policy is almost entire" y predicated on the close Anglo-American rela ion shin, British statesmen natural')' view with alarm any strengthen'ng of bo"ds between Germany and the United States. Count Von Bemstorff, who is re sponsible for the exchange of no'es be tween Berlin and Washington, is well known to British diplomats by reason of his service In London and Egvpt. He is recognized as one of the biggest men in the German foreign service and should he succeed in winning away from England any appreciable share of American friendliness, his accom plishment might have a very serious result on the already none too stable grip of Earl Grey as secretary of state for foreign affairs. though all Roosevelt supporters were invited. 'If Senator LaFollette does not run," Said Governor Vesey, in discus sing the political situation, "I believe Vi i. .-a la nrt ilnntit tit oil nPAO-rnocrli'D Rpniihli(an will unite in HprnaTntlnc that Colonel Roosevelt declare him self as a candidate." W. J. L. Crank, member of the Roosevelt exeoutive committee from Colorado. declared that Roosevelt could carry that state by 50.000 against Harmon and by 25,000 against Wlson. "The west is as strong for the" Roueh Rider as it ever was," said Crank. EMMA BEERS DENIED DIVORCE Petition of Husband, Who Also Sued, Likewise Denied Judge William S.

Strike Children Forced To Leave Lawrence Today Fearing Starvation, Fathers! and Mothers Suffer, Little ! Ones to Be Cared for in New York. j (Special from United Fress. Lawrence, Mass., Feb. 10. Heart rending scenes were enacted at the railroad station, today, when 150 "children of the strike," between the ages of 2 and 12 years, left for New York. Despite the bitterness it cost them, the fathers and mothers were com pelled to choose between starvation lor the little ones and a few months absence among friends and relatives in New York. The strike committee tood the ex pense of sending the children to New York, where the Socialist party there will assume responsibility for placing the children with friends and rela tives until their parents can afford to feed them, or until they can go else where to work at wages that will suoport them. Shortly after the children left, two score or more foreigners of the better class of mill operatives left, feyins? they were goini "where protected corporations really protect their em ployes" to find work. This exodus, to day, makes a total of nearly 1,500 operatives who have left here for other cities. If you freeze cand'es before using them they will never run and will burn twice as long. LYNN W. WILSON DENOUNCES MAYOR'S BONDING PLANS AS RECKLESS AND IMPROVIDENT noaVar le IntommtoH r1" - 1 . " Tu" boara wno asks mat He tie uemea Further Privilege Of The Floor Attorney Cullinan Would Not Favor Bonding for School Purposes Without Consent of the People Result of Bonding Is to Double Expense Bridgeport Should Not Abandon "Pay As You Go Policy." I am a firm believer in conservative bonding for permanent improvements of any considerable amount. All land of any con siderable value for public purposes should in my opinion be pur chased by a bond issue, and of course the buildings thereon should be provided for' in a similar way. I believe that permanent pave ments should be paid for by notes. Mayor Wilson to the Board of Apportionment and Taxation. Bonding for all permanent improvements of considerable value Is not conservative bonding, bnt reckless and improvident bond ing. It will double the cost of everything to whicb it is applied. We want a low tax rate, but we do not want to create a great . debt to get it. Lynn W. Wilson to the Board of Apportionment and Taxation. Things which cannot pay for themselves commercially should in a general way be paid for by assessment, or not built at all. -The enormous number of mistakes made in borrowing money for tilings which cannot and do not pay for themselves shows how muafe it is for government authorities to judge whether pnblic necessity warrants putting heavy burdens on the future tax payer. President Hadley of Tale University. Lynn T: Wilson, appearing before the Board of Apportionment and Tax ation, last night, declared that the request made by Mayor C. B. Wilson upon them, to bond for all permanent improvements of considerable value, should be denied, upon, the ground that such bonding would not be conserva tive, but a repudiation of the -traditional pay as you go policy of Bridge port, and a reckless and improvident financial po'ley Mr. Wilson had had the floor for some twenty minutes, during part of which time John J. Cullinan, a mem ber of the Board of Education, had been explaining that the one mill tax sought by the board was for the con struoJon of permanent improvements of considerable value, and various members had interrupted with ques tions or explanations. A sensation, was occasioned when S. Loewith, a. member of the board, arose and demanded.-. that Mr. Wilson be denied the further privilege of the floor, asserting that the hour, 9:30, was late, . and that Mr. Wilson had already occupied twenty minutes. The board took no action- on the re quest of Mr. Loewith. Mr Wilson continued, saying: "I regret that my remarks are an annoyance to Mr. Loewith. I have hoped, in consideration that my ad vice hitherto given to this body, al though differing from his own, has resulted in a very large sa.ving to the city. I had trough- that upon thi3 account he might be inclined to be pat'ent with me now." The reference was greeted with a smile, the long controversy over the appropriation under the twenty year water contract being comparatively fresh in the mends of some of the members of the board. The question of bonding came up under the request of - the Board of Education for a one mill tax. Mr. Cu liroan was asked by Mr. Wil son if the one mill tax was for per manent improvements of considerable value. Mr. Cullinan replied in the affirma tive. "Is It the purpose of the Board of Education that these improvements shall be raised by a bond issue, and if the expense were raised by a bond issue, would you favor ail issue, ex cept the question were submitted to the electors?" "I believe that submission to 4he electors insures against extravagance,'" replied Mr. Cu'Jinan, "and that a ref erendum before a debt is created is a great protection." "Gentleman of the board of appor tionment," said Mr. Wilson," on Feb. 6 Mayor Wilson addressed to your body a. communication, in which he makes the excellent suggestion that the tax rate should be kept as low as is possible economy and efficiency be ing considered. But he further sug gess, that your board shou d issue bonds to pay for all permanent im provements of considerable value, for all land of considerable value, and for all buildings erected on puch land. He even suggests that there should be no permanent pavement hereafter except a debt is created thereby. "The mayor does more than suggest this enormous project for creating a large debt he concludes his address to you by urging you to 'conform" to his suggestions, he asks you to give them orn-fal effect., "Mr. Cttl inan has shown you that his board does not believe that bonds should be issued for these annual im provements contemplated for the p es ent year, improvements which have hitherto been met in the regular bud get. "Mr. Cullinan says that, speaking for himself, he believes bonds shou'd 'ssue only upon the consent of the people. "The board of education asks for something 'ike $97,000 for these oer rranent improvements, for which .May or Wilson says you shou'd issue bonds, both for ary land of considerable value which may be purchased for sites, and for the buildings which may be erected on them. The Mayor tells you that his plan for bonding is corservative. I say it is not a conservative, but a reck- less and improvident plan, which would more than double the cost of the school p'ant hereafter, and wouM more than double the cost of every ofler permanent improvement hereaf ter. I do not believe there are a doen cities in the world that have adop'ed the ilan- of bonding for all improve- ments of considerable value. If there are such cities and they have been doing it long, they are in a bad way financially I can assure you. "This sort of bonding is ae-ainst the time honored policy of the city. The policy of the city has been pay as you go. Under th's system we have become the second city of the Sta'te, one of the most prosperous cities in the country. "At the very least," continued Mr. Wi'son. "so radical a departure from our use and custom should be sup ported by strong reasons, yet the May or has offered but two: that he wants a low tax rate, and that our debt is not now very great. "He eays to this board of business Ru Momhar fif Tqv 3 - . . men, the Mayor does, that you should keep the tax rate down, by creating a debt, and he says you should create the debt because the city does not owe very much now. "That advice is no better for 20,000 famines tnan- it is for one family. The man who exceeds tola income, ex cept in the face of necessity, is not a sound flnan-cier. The man who claims that he Is frugal and econom ical because he has exceeded his in come by borrowing- lavishly will be laughed at. "There is b tendency throughout the country, among pub ic officials, to get credit for a low tax rate, by plung ing the community into lebt. "The ' little pamphlet which I have here it was called to my attention by onevf the learned judges of this State toTtches upon this .matter. The pamphlet is isa. v Plympton, Gar diner & C. ;,: sa'ikers. They " 'Among municipalities the tendency to extravagance in expenditure Ir very great. It results in an increasing tax rate and in a decreasing credit. A great deal of this expenditure, and the expenditures of counties and Stated as we 1 have been used for things, for whose use a community cannot charge a remunerative price. "President Hadley, of Yale Univer sity, one of the eminent economists of the country, says: 'Sewers, harbor im provements, highways and other things which cannot pay for them selves commercially should in general be paid for by assessment, or not bui't at alL This may seem a. hard rule- to some cases it really is. But the enormoBs noimber of mistakes made im borrowing money for things which do not and cannot pay for themselves shows how unsafe it is for govern ment authorities to judge whether pubic necessity, of such enterprise warrants putting heavy burdens on the future taxpayer." "So you have Mr. Hadley's view of conservative bonding, and the view of these eminent bankers. It appears the only bonding they deem conserva tive is bonding for things that will pay for themselves. "They do not believe tn bonding for all permanent Improvements of con siderable value, which the Mayor asks you to do. "Now we need not proceed upon the authority of experts in this matter. You all know, as business men, that none of you would think of advertis ing that his own enterprise was in good shape because it was heavily in debt. "You know that our board of trade has for years advert:sed our pay as you go po'icy as a reason why manu facturers should locate here. Those of you who use automobiles know that those companies which compete most keenly advertise the absence of a bonded indebtedness on their plan's, to show that their machines are built economically. "There are two reasons that justify a mortgage. Necessity may compel a man to it, or he may have a use for his money which will give greater returns. Many of us are compelled to mortgage our homes, but we are always g'ad when- the mortgage is paid off and we try hard to pay it off. If we don't some time the other fellow gets the place." At this point Mr. Cooper, president of the board, interjected to say, "I understand that Mayor Wilson does not intend to bond for these school house improvements. In fact, he has told me that he didn't." Mr. Wilson: "If the Mayor has al ready seen the error of his way, I am glad of it. I am going by the advice which he has officially given you in his comn-ronication. He asks you to bond for all permanent im provements of considerabe value. I am not willing to assume that the Mayor does not mean what he says to you as an officer of the city in his formal communication to you." Mr. Cooper: "You are Justified in taking the vfew that the schools are incluied." At this point Mr. Loewith asked that Mr. Wilson's remarks be cut . short. j Mr. Wilson, after expressing regret ! that his views annoyed Mr. Loewith, continued, saying: "As a matter of j fact your board has no right to issue bonds. You would be unwise to post pone things absolutely and immedia'e Iv necessary upon any theory that ' you can issue bonds. The Mayor has . no power to issue bonds. That pow- er comes from the General Assembly. j The General Assembly has laid down the general rule that it will attach the referendum to all Dond issues. The last bonds proposed in Bridgeport were submitted to referendum. I feel warranted in saying that there will probably never be another bond issue in Bridgeport except upon the ap proval of the people. X am certainly opposed to the-- prin-cipie that bonds should be issued for all improvements of considerable value. It is bad finance. It is even worse. It is dangerous finance to propose such a thing. And there must be no bond issues, necessary or unnecessary, ex cept with the consent of the citizens of Bridgeport who have to foot the bills." PAYMASTER OF A. & B. IN TEAM HIT BYJROLLEY Gets a Shaking Up But No Harm Is Done Finishes Journey on Foot With An Escort. . Jamea M. Tierney, Jr., cashier and paymaster at the American & British. Co., got a bad shaking up when the carriage in which he was being con veyed to the factory with the week's pay roll this morning was struck by a trolley car at the corner of East Main street and Crescent avenue. The car which shot from under tho viaduct lust as the carriage was cross ing the wtreet crashed into the horsa and front of the coupe, which was slammed along sideways but didn't overturn. The force of the collision threw open a door an da bag of mon ey fell out, but Mr. Tierney grabbed, that quickly. One of the shafts on tho wagon was smashed and the horso knocked over but apparently not bad ly hurt. Mr. Tierney walked the rest of the way to the factory, with an escort. The carriage belonged to the Peck & Lines company. UNCLASSIFIED LADIES AM) GENTLEMEN: Mc Enelly's singing orchestra will be at Colonial Ball Room, Monday night.
