WILL CONSIDER OTHER CORNER Board Defers Action on Six teenth Street Jog. Plans to remove the jog in Illinois street at Sixteenth street and to re surface West Morris street, termed tne erty owners and business men from the south side,” were held up by the board of public works today on protests of property owners. The board told of a delegation of prop erty owners and business men from the neighborhood of Sixteenth and Illinois streets that since the residents objected ' to the cutting off of the buildings at the southeast corner of the intersection, so as to give a clearer view both north and south, that it had decided to give serious consideration to a plan to cut buildings off of the northwest corner instead, and, accordingly, would have to take two weeks longer for Investigation. The board has decided, however, that the jog must be eliminated at all costs, Mark Miller, acting chairman, stated. PRESENT COSTS OBJECTION GROUND. Property owners in. West Morris street between West street and Madison avenue objected to the resurfacing on the ground that present costs are prohibitive and the matter should he laid over at least nntil next March, when costs might be down. * The board members replied that were they to hold up all improvements for low er costs the city might be without streets before long. After much argument it was decided to postpone final action on the resolution ■until Dec. 15, by tfhicb time the city civil engineer will have prepared plans and the board advanced a resolution to the point of confirmation for the resurfacing ct the remainder of tfest Morris street from West street to Kentucky avenue. Some of the objecting property owners said they would withdraw their dis approval if the board would resurface the street from Kentucky to Madison avenues. A resolution for the permanent im provement of Cleveland street from New York to Vermont streets was confirmed. SUFFS DIRECT NEW FIGHT ON CONNECTICUT (Continued From Page One.) ’ that Tennessee can not now withdraw Its ratification. The question, however, has never been settled finally. The most serious aspect of the case as seen here was that the legality of women’s votes may he called Into court. A final decision probably can not be tad until after the elections. If the United States supreme court should decide against the suflfraglpts the results of the whole election would be 1 called into question. The question may be settled, snffra- 1 gists hope, by the calling of a special session of the Connecticut legislature. Which they say has been promised them. If Connecticut should ratify there would be thirty-six states without Ten nessee which had approved the suffrage amendment. SUPREME COURT ACTION FORESEEN NASHVILLE, Tenn., Sept. 1.-*-It is generally conceded here that it will re quire a decUlon from the supreme court to determine what the Tennessee legis lature has done with the resolution to ratify the suffrage amendment. The status of the suffrage resolution became further confused yesterday after noon when the house of representatives expunged from the journal ail record of ratification on Aug. 21. and then voted to non concur in the action of the sen- ( ate In adopting the resolution. The vote was 47 to 24. twenty not vnt Ing. The antis gained control of the house 1 by three votes owing to the absence of, several of the suffragist members. Speaker Seth Walker and Represents- ' tive Frank Hall of Dickaon county, en gineered the proceedings to squash the ratification resolution. They had a solid majority behind them and as fast as one point of order was knocked out by the speaker or by the test vote of the house. Representative Hal! took the floor and moved on the nest toward nullifying the previous action of the house in ratification. The result was foreseen from the time the house convened. The antis knew they had a majority. The crowd of spectators was small, very few women being In attendance In com parison with the earlier days of the fight. There wns only one flop. Representa tive Urawtord of Bedford county* who had voted consistently with the suf fragists. changed to the side of the antis. IS EXPUNGED PROM JOURNAL. The first act of the house was to ex punge from the journal every reference to any and all business Transacted last Saturday. Aug. 21, except that showing no quorum present. Representative Riddick of Shelby county led the suffragist forces in their feeble effort to check the antis In their determination to defeat the suffrage resolution. He made the point of order: that the house could not reconsider its action in adoption of the suffrage amendment, as both the senate and house had adopt ed legally the ratification resolution, and the amendment already was safely Im bedded, in the constitution of the United States as proclaimed by Secretary of State Colby. Speaker Walker overruled this point. Representative Phelan of Shelby county made the point of order that the resolution was not me property of the house, but was in the hands of the United States government. He likewise was overruled by Speaker Walker, who held that the resolution •was still the property of the house 3nd could be supplied. Representative Hall produced a certi fied copy of the resolution, which, on motion, was spread on the minutes of the house. The action of the house in reversing itself on the suffrage measure was cheered loudly by the anti members and their sympathizers among the spectators present. NATIONAL LEAGUE PREPARES FOR WAR NEW YORK, Sept. I.—The National League of Women Voters, while confi dent the action of the anti-suffragists in the Tennessee legislature in rescinding that state's ratification of the suffrage amendment is illegal, today began “rounding up” its suffrage majority emong the Tennessee assemblymen in preparation for continuation of the bat tle. - Miss Alice Paul, chairman of tbe league, passed most of the day In her office here in telephone conversation with officials of the organization, planning resumption of the fight in Tennessee. She sought opinions from the highest federal and state legal officials. She intimated their unofficial opinions Sad been that original ratification of the amendment would stand. Miss Paul pointed out that the West Virginia legislature was unable to recon sider its ratification, and that when the fifteenth amendment was passed after the Civil war the New York asembly was prevented from rescinding ita ac tion in ratifying.

Portland, Ore., at SIOO per week, but dis missed him when he learned Hall had negotiated with the republicans. Senator New of Indiana, head of the republican speakers’ bureau, testified Tuesday that Hall told him the demo crats had offered him $7,500 a year and a good job after election. New said Hall was employed by demo cratic headquarters in New York. ‘‘He told us that the republicans had offered him SB,OOO a year,” White said. Senator Edge of New York asked White concerning a reported meeting in York Sunday night, attended, according to reports, by Gov. Cox, Bernard Baruch, Thomas Chadfcourne and other demo crat.’. White said he didn't know anything about the meeting or whether it was for the purpose of discussing party finances. Edge asked whether the democrats had written to various corporations demand ing definite sums as contributions t 0 tbe democratic war chest. White disclaimed knowledge of any such procedure. “Do you believe the republican national committee is planning to .corrupt tbe American electorate?” demanded Edge. After a wrangle with Reed. Edge wlth drew the question. ' Do you know if telegrams have been sent to banks or others, asking for hur ried contributions?” Edge resumed. “I know Treasurer Marsh did send out some telegrams to friends asking for funds. I don't know to whom he sent them.” White said $65,000 was all the demo crats had raised to date. “We’re in serious need." he declared. "Don't you know that Tammany hall will raise hundreds of thousands of dol lars that won't go Info the hapds of the national committee?” asked Edge. “I don't know; we have no control ovei Tammany.”, replied White. REED TAKES TURN AT QUESTIONING. "Isn't it true that presidential elec tions often turn on one state and that money used corruptly in even one pre cinct may turn the whole election?” Sen ator Reed asked.-" “Quite true,” said White. Reed cited instances in the Harrison campaign and in New York campaigns when a few purchased votes affected the result. “About this Barnes book," Reed went on. “It isn't the book you fear but the effect of pledges of support from big financiers.” “That's so," said White. White said he personally would be responsible for saying that no contribu tions are accepted by the democrats from special interests or improper sources. White said be did not think the pub lication of such a list of capitalists as the Barnes book lists would be likely to swing any votes to a party. “But suppose the list were sent to a select group of financiers, wouldn't It influence them to follow the lead of the big men?” asked Reed. “Well, it would be a suggestion any way.” said White. “So you feel discouraged about finances because the cupboard's bare,” said Ken yon. "Oh. no. I expect popular subscriptions to fill up the cupboard.” White replied. Senator Edge suggested that White tdre Thomas Chadbourne to collect the $2,000,000 budget. "He collected that much money in New York City In one mayoralty campaign," said Edge. REPUBLICANS FEAR TO CALL GOV. COX. On the ground that Gov. Cox would make a stump speech if allowed to tes tify In the slush fund Inquiry, republican members of the committee virtually have decided not to call Cox. They fear he would seize the oppor tunity to loose another denunciation of the republican party, including the re publican majority of the committee. If they can help it Cox won't get that chance. Democratic members and party lead ers here for the investigation, said they can prove their case without putting Cox on the stand. When W. D. Jamieson, former director of finance of the democratic committee, takes the stand he is to be asked about letters he is alleged to have written to postmasters and other federal employes which, according to the republicans, were polite, but firm demands for campaign contributions. The republicans have many such let ters. they said. The republicans are going Into the booze issue also with great vigor as soon as George T. Carroll, New Jersey liquor man, arrives In response to a sub poenae. / Carroll wrote tbe letter soliciting funds in support of Cox which Will Hays pro duced Monday. Republican Treasurer Upham, who com pleted his testimony at the second day’s hearing, may be recalled briefly. Upham. late in the day, produced a ‘‘quota list.” which he said he drew up In May, 1919, showing the forty-eight states were expected to raise $4,887,500 for the national committee. In addition Upham said a viumber of states planned to raise $778,000 more for purely state needs. He also testified that $700,000, to be de voted to the senatorial and congressional campaigns, had not been Included In the budget. .Senator Reed, democrat, drew the con clusion that the total expense estimated for was the sum of the three Items, or $6,395,300. Upham insisted the $4,000,000 item rep resented only "a mark to shoot at." He said It was nullified when the budget of $3,079,000 was fixed on July, 1920. Upham was followed by Senator New of Indiana, who detailed expenses of tbe republican speakers bureau and by Chairman Hays, who gave other data on contracts desired by Reed.

Lewis, chalrinan of the public service commission, today issued a re quest to all patrons of the Indianapolis Light and Heat Company and the Mer chants Heat and Light Company, using hot water or steam heat to attend the hearing on the petition of these com panies for increased rates. The hearings will be held tomorrow af ternoon at 2 o’clock, in the hearing room of the commission on the fourth floor of the statehouse. Increases of 22*4 cents on steam heat ing rates and 20 cents on hot water heating rates are asked in the petitions. This would make a price of 50 cents per square foot on hot water rates, as compared to the present rate of 30 cents, and 50 cents per square foot of radia tion flat rate per season on steam heat, Instead of the present rate of 37Vs cents. Authority to discontinue hot water heating in Indianapolis for the heating season of 1920 and 1921, should the com mission refuse to grant the Increase in rates, is asked in the petition. “The hot water heating situation, as well as steam heating, is critical,” said Mr. Lewis today. “We want the citizens of Indianapolis to attend this hearing, and to lend every assistance possible n> aiding the commis sion to make a fair decision. •trDuring the past year the commission has seen fit to grant authority for the discontinuance of hot water heating in six cities. “We have allowed increases of 36 cents in Frankfort, 37 cenjs in Newcastle arm 36 cents In Lafayette, where the hot water heating service was in a serious situation. "It seems that with the increased cost of coal and shortage of labor hot water heating has become almost an Impossi bility." JEWETT BUNCH IGNORE APPEAL FOR SAFEGUARD (Continue,( From Page One.) to the board of safety got the reporter no fnrther on the track. Tuesday morning Capt. Claude F.

An Explanation Some misapprehension of the purpose of the conference held by the Public Service Commission Monday afternoon calls for a brief statement by us. This conference was called by the Commission solely for con sideration of means of conserving gas next winter. Supplies of coal will be so limited that it will be impossible to produce as much gas as the public will want if it tries to use gas for beating purposes, ✓ * The Commission desires to establish some automatic means of regulating tbe demand, and has suggested an ascending sliding scale as the best practicable device. In this opinion we concflr. But we have not asked for establish ment of such a scale or for any other increase of rates) At present we do no.t intend to do so. If any conservation measure adopted by the Commission results incidentally in an increase in revenues, all such increase will be devoted to betterments of our equipment for supplying the public,' and our capital account will be cor respondingly amortized. Many betterments arc urgently needed and cannot be financed from our present revenues. We do not ask for any increase in gas rates for the benefit of our stockholders; but any increase in earnings from that or any other source will be used by us for bene fit of the public. For that purpose increased revenue is urgently needed; but the matter brought up by ike Commission is a means of conserving gas in the emergencies of the coming winter and has no relation to revenue for the Gas Company, except as any in cidental increase will be utilized solely for improvements in the plants and systems.
