McMurchy Special Dispatch to The Star WASHINGTON, Aug. 2.-Josiah 0. Wolcott, of Dover, Del., has treated the people, and es pecially the politicians, of the United States to a new sensation. He has resigned his seat in the United States senate to take a stock job back home! The job he's taking is a cosy enough berth, to be sure, but it is not one to greatly impress the average member of the senate or congress. It's the kind of a job that governors hand out; in this case, the state chancellorship. It was Wolcott's second jolt for national politicians. The first was his election, as a democrat, to the senate in 1916, the year when Hughes carried everything east of the Alleghanies. He was then less than 40 yean old and utterly unknown outside of Delaware, where he had been attorney general for four years. What was there about this democrat who could win where Wilson couldn't; who could reach the United States senate over the prostrate form of Senator Henry A. duPont, for 12 years the incumbent? Nothing Very "Heavy" About Him The politicians watched Wolcott when he reached Washington. They found him a lean, lantern-jawed chap with a pale face and a very black mop of hair. TTiat's about all he revealed, for his performance did not live up to his sensational arrival. He fitted into place presently just as an average member. Then recently he handed the politicians his big jolt. He resigned. He announced he had been ap pointed chancellor of Delaware. ■ Senators almost choked in their amazement. A sen ator resign? To accept a cabinet place—sometimes, but not always. To go onto the supreme bench—yes. But for any other reason—no! What is a chancellor, anyway? Delaware and New Jersey seem to be the only states that have them. The chancellor is a sort of judge who tries equity caaes. TTie job pays $7,500 and the term is 12 years. But the situation had in it another puzzle for the senate. This democrat had been appointed lay a repub lican governor, and would have to be confirmed by a republican state senate. Governor Wanted G. O. P. Senator Might not the republican governor find in Delaware a competent republican lawyer who would like this chan cellorship? But, you see, the thing the governor was really after was to create a vacancy in the senate of the United States to which he could appoint a republican, and it leaked out that the senatorship for the unexpired term had been tendered to Thomas Coleman duPont, a mil lionaire manufacturer of pdwders and several thou sand other things, republican national committeeman, the big boss of the republican organization in the state, a.id a cousin of Henry A. duPont, whom Wolcott had defeated five years before. A lot of politicians at oncc branded it as a deal by which a chancellorship for 12 years was to be traded to a democrat in return for a United States senatorehip for 20 months. The result was a sensational chapter of political his tory even in a state where political skulduggery and corruption have been common. The unconsulted state senators took up the fight. Two republicans, I. Dotphus Short of Milford, and J.

M. Thierry Special Dispatch to The Star IN CAMP, VIA OAKLAND, Md., Au*. 2. "I am not trying to burglarize my railroad —I'm making it serve the public." That is the boiled-down answer Henry Ford gave when I asked him to tell his "magic formu la" for curing America's railroad ills. Giving two hours out of his vacation in the West Virginia mountains with H. S. Fifestone and Thomas A. Edison, he told me how after purchase he rehabilitated the D., T. I. railroad. And he declared that application of the same methods would make all "sick" railroads well. "We cut freight and passenger rates 20 per cent and we boosted wages," said Ford. "And it won't take long to reduce the rates 50 per cent. All Could Cut Rates in Half "All railroads could cut their rates in half. We have shown them how. But I'm afraid they won't do it. "Under Wall Street management the only way they know to make money is higher railroad rates—which is the poorest way in the world to get business." Ford said he "wasn't a magician" and "didn't wield a magic wand." This is his recipe: "Keep the railroad busy and the equipment busy and all the men on it busy. "On the D., T. & I. we are getting along fine— making money where the road never made money before, making it because the men are busy and their hearts are in their work. "We eliminated waste and dead wood. All rail roads can—and should—do the same thing." Ford declared he found enough scrap along the D., T. &. I. to pay for its purchase. "What is the first thing you would do if you were given all the railroads to run?" I asked him. "Slash rates, boost wages, let a lot of the men go," he replied. "I'd let some of the men go back to the farm—temporarily. They'd be of more use there. Thinkers Needed for Railroads "There are too many men running the railroads who let somebody else do their thinking for them. We want men who can think for themselves. "Another thing is that too many men let titles spoil them." One of Ford's "reforms" on the D., T. & I. was to take able men out of his motor car industry and let them run the railroad. "A lot of railroads would be better off if they adopted a policy along that line," he said. "There is too much tradition in the railroads—doing things in old-fashioned ways. "What <tid we ever know about railroads—except to ride on Yet we've, got our road organized so that inside oP? 1 ear it is making money. Any railroad could be put o*Jlr»N feet in that time.

And in every city and crossroad hamlet in the country people are mourning the passing of a great artist Mom of them never m Caruso, they never beard the golden notes pouring out from that wonderful throat, bat the phonograph—an inanimate machine of wood and rubber and ateel springs—has car ried the liquid refrains of the Great Neapolitan to the humbled cottage. Caruso, more than any other singer, perhaps, helped to popu larise the wonderful classics of music. He wa« the ambassador of song. He made the Italian operas masterpieces to be loved around the world; he carried their beauty and glory Into log cabins on the Yukon, into 'dobe huts on the Mexican border. Into the lum ber camps of the Northwest and Into the fetid tenements of the East And It Is one of the miracles of modern science that he will continue to act as the supreme missionary of song. * Caruso, the golden-throated, is dead, but his voice goes singing on! BY CAMILLA riA.VFARRA (United Press Staff Correspondent) NAn4JS, A nr. I.—Enrico Ca ruso, the world's gre*>st tenor, died here at 4 a. m. today. Hl* golden voire was (tilled forever when he failed lo rally from a relapse following an op eration for an abwtM, Caruso's death w«j expected for several hours before the end came. He never had completely recovered from the effect* of an operation for pleurisy, which he underwent in New York last winter As a result of this operation, physi cians state, he suffered from a dia phragmic abscess. Another operation was performed In an effort to remove the accumu lated pus, but It left Caruso badly weakened and he rapidly sank. Last Thursday the famous tenor and his wife, the former Dorothy Itenjamln, went to a sanctuary in the Pompeii valley, where he offered prayers of thanks to the Virgin for the recovery of liia voice, heard a mass and Rave 20,000 francs as * thanks offering. Afterward Caruso viq|ted the exca. vations at Pompeii. On Saturday he felt pains in hia abdomen. Those were the first warnings that the finul illness was at hand. Ho called a physician, who advised him to go to Naples and con sult specialists. Arriving in Naples on Sunday night, Caruso called Pro fessors Sergi, Carozanxasodo and Moscatl. After a long consultation these specialists diagnosed his case as acute peritonitis, wtlh a tendency to' spread. They decided to operate. Caruso, whose fortitude when suf fering great pain was considered re markable, continue to keep up hia good spirits. However, he tmnk steadily. His agony increased. His strength waned. Injections of c«imphor were < required every two hours to stimu late his fluttering heart. His breathing was difficult and be came Increasingly labored. His wife, who also maintained her courage, remained at his bedside for hours. She saw her husband steadily drawing nearer to the gates of death, but. remembering the successful fight he made against what were considered overwhelming oHds dur ing Ills previous illness in Ne*f (Turn to Page 2, Column 1)
