DEFENSE LEAGUE IN
MOBILIZATION TEST
99th Precinct Awarded Second
Honors, With 171st, Brook
lyn, in First Place.
By Special Correspondent.
Tottenvllle, July SI.—In the recent
emergency mobilization of the Homo
Defense .League throughout the entire
greater New ïork, the 99th precinct,
Tottenvllle, carried off second honora
In the announcement made by A. M.
White, aide of Police Commissioner
Woods aud head of the Home Defense
Bureau. The 171st precinct, Brook
lyn, that was given first honors, barely
nosed out in the race, because the hon
ora were so even with the local pre
cinct that It waa difficult for those to
decide.
The mobilization was held on July 5
and more than 8,000 men responded
at the various police precincts In the
five boroughs ready for duty. Tre or
der was issued to the captains of the
various companies of the league at 4
o'clock In the afternoon to have their
men report at 8 o'clock sharp.
Captain Matheson reported here 108
out of the 110 members οϊ the local
precinct. This was nearly 100 per
cent. Captain Matheson has since re
ceived a letter from Major Walter W.
Price of the Staten Island leagues con
gratulating him and his ottlcers and
men on the efficient standards they
have attained.
The third honors went to the 38th
precinct Manhattan. The members of
the league here have done consider
able duty during the past several
months.
The spot census was taken Just af
ter the military census of Juno 6 and
now each member is doing two hours
patrol with a regular patrolman. Po
lice Captain Turley, who organized the
league more than a year ago, is Just
ly proud of Its members for the work
done and the honora received in get
ting second place In the mobilization
test and of the showing made at the
review held at Curtis field on Sunday,
July 1. It was believed all along that
the local boys would get first honors
with the number reporting for duty.
Only two men were misstng—one had
gone to Plattsburg and the other was
in Brooklyn Indisposed. The following

CONFERENCE ON
RIP· LANDS
Board Reports That There are
Over 1,600 Illegal Occupa
tions of Riparian Lands.
£? 1/ Special Correspondent.
Trenton, July 81—With Governor
Edge present for an hour and taking
active part In the deliberations, the
State Board of Commerce and Navi
gation held a special meeting yester
day afternoon to consider Its future
policy on riparian lands owned by the
state. It was reported that the board
had discovered more than 1,600 lïle- I
gal occupations of riparian lands, cov
ering all sectlone of the state. It Is
estimated that If the board proves the
right of the state to all these lands It
will mean an lncomo of close to fl,»
000,000. The situation Is an Import
ant one because the Interest from all
riparian moneys goes to the support
of the public schools. It Is said that
probably In a majority of the cases
the state's lands have been occupied
through Ignorance. Some of the cases
of "squatting" Involve large tracts of
valuable water front property, while
many are such unimportant occupa
tlans as small boat wharves.
One case Is that of the Pennsylvania
Railroad Company which for more
than six years has had possession of
some 400 feet or riparian land along
the Hafkensaek river where Its new
line lnt\f New York city through the
tunnel crosses. The board has fined
a price of $20 a foot and will prose
cute the claim In the state courts. It
Is alleged that the Florence Iron
Works at Florence on the Delaware
river, is also an offender.
President J. Spencer Smith, of the
board, declared today that all the
offenders will be prosecuted and
' > '1 4 Λ VI fl ir urlf 4 tl f4lia ψ Λ
Btate. As th«re Is much legal work
to be done, the board will likely be
allowed special counsel. Governor
Edge listened with much Interest to
this report and agreed with the board
that the cases should be prosecuted.
The board decided to have all the
riparian lands re-mapped and put on
systematic basis, shoeing every grant
and lease, in order to prevent "squat
ting" In the future.
It adopted the policy that where
persons, corporations or municipali
ties object to the price put by the
board upon riparian lands applied
for, the board consider a lease or a
revokable permit to use the lands,
pending a final determination in the
matter. At present there is no ap
peal from the prlco fixed by the
board and whero It has been deemed
too high the matter has dropped, re
sulting in no development of such
tracts. Ill . U· '
The board took steps to meet the
views çf the Interstate Palisades
Park Commission with reference to
the application of the latter body for
the use of 1,600 feet of Hudson river
front lands along the park. As the
Income will go to the school fund,
some of the members of the Com
merce and Navigation Board thought
full price should be charged, even
though it was paying state money
from "one pocket to the other." How
ever, it was decided to accept from
the Park Commission a revokable
permit, that body to pay the state a
percentage of any Income derived
therefrom.

the campaign progresses.
The question of a social at the olose

ANOTHEB BIG FEATURE
•M—.nr FnR THF niTMAS
Pauline Frederick, the screen's
greatest emotional actress, has tempo
rarily forsaken her customary "heavy"
roles and In "Her Better Self," which
comes to tho Dltman tomorrow, Is
seen as a young society butterfly In
love with α very serious young doc
tor.
The story deals with the way Viv
ian Tyler, pampered daughter of
wealthy parents, successfully bridge*
the vast gulf of poverty which yawns
between her and the man she loves
who Is a charity doctor.
When their mutual attraction for
each other has brought about a situa
tion almost demanding that he pro
pose to her, he Is forced to tell her
that their marriage would be utterly
Impossible. "You could not stand
even a week of my life," he told hor
bitterly.
The way she secretly plans to take
this test, coming to his sanatorium to
help and mingle with his co-workers,
but is at last discouraged, not by the
endless squalor and drudgery of It but
ter discovering what she thinks Is a
l&.e affair betweon him and α girl of
the streets who worships him, makes
a situation that Is thoroughly grlp
pllng In Its Intensity and great "hum
an Interest."
Returning to her homo, Vivian loses
all Interest In her life and allows her :
parents to announce her engagement
to a foreign baron whom she socretly
despises. The latter urges an early
wedding, but a telephone call from the ι
young doctor brings her back to him
to try again.
But tho gill who had caused their
first misunderstanding soon widens the ι
gulf between them by committing sui
cide. The blame attaches to the doc
tor who chivalrously allows himself to
be Indicted because he thinks he la
shielding Vivian.
The tanglo of circumstantial evi
dence Is at last unwound however by
Vivian herself and the happiness of;
the lovers only heightened by their ter- !
l-lble experience.
