Pays Tribute to STVH’S Work. Mr. Johnson, director of the associa tion, has paid tribute to the STAR'S work as being responsible for the wide spread interest which he has found in the new organization. “At Washington,” he said, “I was as sured hy the Department of Justice that whenever cases of abuse against any federal laws were presented they , would he given immediate attention. “The STAR'S articles on conditions attending bankruptcy cases in Newark and its remarkable tabulated state ment of 200 bankruptcy cases, showing 112 cases controlled by a favored clique who seemed to have been able to ob tain advance tips, have created com ment throughout the Country and have made it comparatively easy for me to interest prominent men in the associa tion and the prosecution ef Its ob jects. “There seemed to be to them in this table a most astonishing repetition of the names of Harry V Osborne. BUder A Bilder. .1. Tracy Horton and the rest of them The recent publication in the STA R of a defense of his practise in the bankruptcy court by Mr. Osborne was k also presented to me by some of those nationally known, who have seen it as a most remarkable document.

LOVE OF AUTOS AND RUGS KILLING OFF YANKEE RACE. BOSTON, Oct. 30.—Professor Robert J. Sprague, of the Massachusetts Agri cultural College at Amherst, In looking over ihe last State census figures out that the Vankee race la threatened with extinction. Rugs and automobiles are blamed in part for the falling off of the birth rate. “We conceal our love-making," the professor declares, and thin produces a result like pro hibition In Maine, where you gel the worst kind of stuff. "A woman may work like a lave indoors, get Indigestion and have ner vous prostration, hut must not exer cise in the open Hr for eeonor-ic ends lest she lose her social standing and her husband lose his as well. This Is race suicide, for the Almighty has de clared that any race that endures must breathe air. Our trouble Is not that we love children less but that we love oriental rugs and autoa more."
