GOraGT FOR
ROME CABLE
SIGNED
Line Eventually Will Connect
With Asia Minor and South
American Ports.
By HARRY L. ROGERS,
International News Service.
A contract providing for direct
cable communication between New
York and Rome has just been
signed by the Italian government
with the Western Union Telegraph
Company, it was learned officially
today.
New Cable To Be Laid.
Under the terms of the contract,
the yVestern Union is to construct a
cable from New York to the Azores,
and the Italian government Is to con
tinue the line from the Azores up
the Mediterranean to Rome.
Authorization for the construction
of the Mediterranean cable already
has been granted by the Italian gov
ernment to the Carosio-Pirelli group,
and the necessary capital, estimated
at $25,000,000, is now being raised
by private subscription. To date be
tween $9,000,000 and $10,000,000 is
assured, $6,000,000 being subscribed
by the Western Union, which, under
the terms of its contract, is to be
permitted to hold one-fourth of the
stock. The balance of between $3,000,-
000 and $4,000,000 has been sub
scribed by Italian capitalists.
No difficulty is anticipated in rais
ing the remaining $15,000,000, as the
Pirelli interests are expected to as
sume much of the financial obliga
tion. An appeal also is being made
by Premier Mussolini to Italians in
the United States to subscribe to the
project*.
Manufactures Equipment.
Inasmuch as the Pirelli concern
includes the manufacture of elec
trical equipment among its varied
interests, it is expected that the
company will undertake to supply
the Mediterranean cable.
By the terms of the contract,
the Italian government has the
privilege to purchase one-fourth of
the stock of the special company
to be formed by the Western Union
for the construction of the cable
from the Azores to New York. It
is considered unlikely, however,
that the government will avail it
, self of this opportunity.
Under the plan proposed to the
, Allied and Associated Powers by
the United Stales few tiie alloca-
I tion of the former German cables
in the Atlantic, Italy was to re
ceive the Transatlantic cable run
ning from Moravia. Liberia, to
Pernambuco in Brazil. If this plan
eventually is accepted by the other
interested powers, it is the inten-’
tion of the Italian government to
connect the South American cable
with the Rome-New York line at
the Azores.
Pending final allocation of the
former German lines, they are now
being operated under a modus
vivendi agreed upon at the interna
tional calrte conference here’ which’
adjourned early in the Harding ad
ministration. This agreement pro
vided that the former German cables
in the North Atlantic should con
tinue to be operated by Great Brit
ain and France respectively, and
that the proceeds should be credited
to the joint account of • all the in
terested powers for final disposition
after the cables were definitely
allotted-
Line to Be Repaired. •
Italy expects to use her share of
the accrued earnings of the cables
in connecting the South American
line with the Azores and in putting
the cable in repa’ir, since it has not
been in operation since it was cut
by the allies shortly after the out
break of the war.
When the Mediterranean cable hah
been completed, it is planned to ex
tend it to various points in the Medi
terranean and to Asia Minor, so that
competition will be given British
companies which now enjoy a mo
nopoly of that business. American
business interests have been eager
for the establishment of such cable
routes, as charges have been made
from time to time that British com
mercial interests were able to exer
cise a sort of censorship dn Ameri
can business enterprise in that
region by reason o f the cable
monopoly.
Direct communication between
Rome and New York is the goal to
ward which Italian statesmen have
been working for anany years. Dur
ing the Washington Arms Confer
ence the Italian delegation made it
clear Italy would agree to no plan
of allocation which failed to provide
such direct communication. Mem
bers of the delegation frankly ex
pressed the opinion that Italo-Ameri
can rotations had suffered in the
past from the fact that all com
munications from Italy to the United
States passed through Paris and
London.
AIREDALE WALKS HOME,
COVERING 700 MILES
DENVER, Feb. 24.—An Airedale
terrier shipped from here by its
Owner, Frank Farrow, three weeks
ago to St. Joseph, Mo., limped back
to the Farrow home yesterday, hav
ing walked the entire 700 miles from
the Missouri city. The owner of
the dog in St. Joseph, to whom it
was sold by Farrow, reported that

About Time, She Thinks, Juries Begin
Ignoring Hysterics in Women..
By FAY KING.
Well, I see where another one
of these girls that went gunning
after a guy has been sentenced
to twenty years. Good stuff! If
women want equal rights along
with meh, then when thqy start
gatting and kill a bird let ’em
pay the penalty the same as a
man.
Was a time when all a dame
had to do was pull a few sob
scenes .and chew the corner of
her handkerchief and the jury
handed her a free pass to fame
and fortune. '
This dame did a flop, of course,
and yelped something about there
being no justice in the world for
a woman. I will say there is,;
when a jury is hardboiled and
don’t weaken ■> when a woman
rolls her optics and pulls pathos. *
When a dame gets mixed up
with a guy and ha’s got a wife
and family, how does she figure
that her angle of the game is
more important than theirs?
SCORES LOVE LETTERS.
I know it’s considered catty
not to stick up for your own sex,
but just the same, when you
lamp a sad-looking skirt that you
never would suspect of stealing a
base, my sympathies ain’t with
her.
What right has she got to step
in and bump a bird? She should
have thought of all that stuff
when she started playing around
with him in the first place, and
even if circumstances were such
that it wasn’t Exactly her fault
in the first place, instead of
hounding the guy with her heart
troubles, why don’t she try to
forget it? If she keeps her head,
there's no crime committed witil
she starts shooting. That’s when
‘it’s really too late. Then she has
got something to worry about!
It ain’t always these painted-up
dolls with the wise-looking maps
that are the most dangerous.
Sometimes it’s these drab little
parties that you’d never dream
in the world were winding them
selves up in a lotto. trouble.
BIGGER SITE FOR
WALTER REED
FAVORED
Board of Trade Feels Hos
pital Should Have Room
to Expand.
Recommendations' that Walter
Reed Hospital be removed from its
present site to one vhere it would
have plenty of room to expand as
occasion demands were made by the
co'mmittee of streets and avenues
of the Board of Trade yesterday.
Views that in its present location
the hospital is a detriment to the
city were expressed.
Declaring that the New York ave
nue bridge costing $300,000 spanning
the Washington Terminal railroad
tracks is used only for carrying dump
wagons to the trash heap, and that
it is a colossal monument to extrav
agant expenditure, the committee
urged the extension of New York
avenue to the District line in order
to create some practical use of the
bridge.
Attention of the Commissioners
will be called to an old statute re
quiring the street railway com
panies to keep the street surface
in repair between the tracks, and
to the conditions which maintain
at present on some highways.
SIX BANDITS ASSAULT
MAN WITH BLACKJACK
Struck with a blackjack while
Walking at First and K streets
northeast last night, Alexander
Lewis, thirty-three years old, 1016
First street northeast, was beaten
almost into unconsciousness by six
colored bandits. His cries for help
apparently frightened them, as they
made off. Passers-by saw Lewis
lying on the pavement and had him
removed to Sibley Hospital.
Miss Oleana McClellan, of the
Woodward apartments, 2311 Con
necticut avenue, complained to the
police that a colored man snatched
her handbag while she was at
Twentieth street and Columbia road.
Rhinestones, $5 and cards were in
the bag.
2,000 N. Y. TEACHERS ILL;
SCHOOLS ORDERED CLOSED
NEW YORK, Feb. 24.—With
2,000 or more teachers ill, and grip,
Influenza and pneumonia prevalent
among pupils, New York * city
schools were closed yesterday. “We
expect the holiday to work an im
provement in the situation,” Super
intendent Ettinger said.
Although rising temperatures
brought a decrease in the number
of “flu” eases In the city, the
State fuel administration warned
the coal shortage is more acuto than
at any time this winter.
*• I know one diune that’s been
all yarned up with another wom
an's husband and she’s the last
doll in the world you’d ever' pick
out to be pulling anything like
that.
She ain’t got any square dia
monds or velour-lined limousine,
but she’s entertaining a good
old-fashioned family man three
evenings a week in her two-room
and kitchenette apartment.
If you lined up a bunch of
dames and asked me which one
of the gang I suspected, I’d put
her outta the running right otf
the reel.
This thing has been going on
for a good many years, and like
most cases like that, he was go
ing to divorce the wife and kids,
but’ there’s not a chance; This
dame is getting along in years
now and to the place where she
is. beginning to figure that her
chances to land another guy are
getting slimmer and slimmer, and
this bird is beginning to take an
interest in his kids now, and—
well, she’s just the dort that
might pop him off- with a thirty
two one of these days, and when
she shows up for jury judgment
she’ll look sq meek and trampled
down you’ll feel sorry for her.
NO EXCUSE, SAYS FAY.
But why should you?
With kids as wise as they are
these days, there’s no excuse in
the world for any /woman hang
ing after another dame’s husband,
and if he gives her the air she
oughta be game enough hot to
squawk and take her verdict from
him instead of a jury.
Trouble is some guys pick on
a shnpiel-looking jane because
they are afraid these wise dolls
will work ’em. Look out for
these plain, unpowdered, broody
sort—they * ain’t *so good at for
getting »
But just the same I don’t think
they got any right to remember!
Fallin’ in love s frith a married
man is a losing game. They
gotta nerve to figure on winning!

Relate to Prohibition, Says

prosecutions incident’
to' prohibition. enforcement have
brought abbut a “considerable dis- ;
orgqmigaiion ” ttf’ tho courto cf United
States and are contributing serioijiiiy
to a! “general dislocation 'qfc'ihe'bh
tirfe judicial systehn” Former ' Gov.
Herbert S. Hadley, of Missouri, told
the International News Service to-
Governor Hadley, who is * now
associated with -the University, of
Colorado Law School,’ was a member
of" the committee, which , organized
the American Law Institute here.
In nearly a year’s close study of
laws and legal practices he has ob
tained a keen Insight into court
procedure. In 1912 Governor Had
ley was widely mentioned as a
Presidential possibility.
Clogs Up the Courts.
“Statistics indicate that one
fourth of the criminal cases' before
the Federal courts of United States
are prohibition prosecutions,” Gov
ernor Hadley said. “Enforcement
of the Volstead act clogs up courts
to just that extent—2s per cent.
“However, ‘in’ my opinion, the
danger of disruption of the judicial
system, as the result-of prohibition,
while existant, is not as serious as
some authorities would have us
believe.’’
< Governor Hadley said there has
been a wide increase in violation
of the narcotic laws, as the result
of sale of bootleg whiskey. Nar
cotic prosecutions, which are
coming before American courts in
ever increasing numbers, were given
as a class of crimes "incident to
prohibition,” by Hadley.
‘.'And yet,” Governor Hadley
added, “prohibition is here to stay.
While the conditions are bad
enough now—that is, as to violations’
of the law resulting from the en
forcement . of the. prohibition law
violations are nothing to what they
were under the regime of the open
saloon.
"I believe there is greater defiance,
to .the prohibition law on the part
of the present generation than has
ever been evinced against any legls
; lation put on American statute:
books. There is keen resentment
against what is termed an encroach-
I ment on personal liberty. t ~
• “But unodubtedly the,next genera
tion of American citizens—the boys
and girls of today—win look upon
prohibition more complacently.”
Problem Will Be, Solved.
Governor Hadley said he could
, offer no specific for improvement of
the prohibition laws or court pro-,
cedure that the congested condition
of the judicial might be dissipated.
"That is simply = a problem which
must work itself out with experience
i —and ttc whi work itself out,” he ex
, plained. „
He declared all laws must be made
more specific, more exact and clear,
that cases involved under them
might- pass through the courts with
dispatch.
I Governor Hadley admitted the hew
American Law Institute has taken
upon itself a tremendous task in the
endeavor to promulgate a restate
ment of the basic principles of
American law, so that the courts
of every State might have a common
. foundation upon which' to work,
j The legal 'profession, he said, is
I making a gallant effort to throw
I off the shackles of red tape which
through common law, legislative
statute, judicial practice and ap
pelate court decision, have made
lawyers the slave of precedent.

Would Be Result of Ball Bill
Passage, According to Wil
liam McK. Clayton.-
Passage of the Ball street railway
merger bill would result in a 10
cent car fare in Washington, ac
cording to William McK. Clayton,
chairman of the legislative commit
.tee of the Federation of Citizens’
Associations, who voiced his views
to members of the House District
Committee in an effort to prevent
further action on the measure.
Clayton pointed out that under
the provisions of the Ball bill street
railway companies could charge vir
tually any fare they elects He also
said that a merger. of the com
panies under the Ball measure
would result in a Confusion of ac
counts. This wouio be so great,
he declared, that it would be prac
tically impossible to determine an
equitable fare.
Congressman Hammer of North
Carolina is certain, he says, that
there is sufficient opposition to the
measure to defeat it should it be
brought up for action in the House
lit this session of Congress. It has
passed the Senate.
Little hope is held out for any
action on the measure before the
adjournment of Congress March 3.

need, “red, white and blue laws, con
sistent with abiding Americanism..”
