March 22. HIS majesty, George of the Hellenes, was the most demo cratic monarch in Europe, a strictly constitutional king, who reigned but did not govern. Horn :t prince of Denmark, (In* favorite brother of (Jreen Mother Alexandra and the dow ager <V.nrina Maria Feodorovna, Prince George lived in the strict simplicity of (he Danish court until unexpectedly elected totbe Ihrone of Greece. Greece, weary of war, welcomed h rnler who assumed as his motto, "My strength is the love of my people." The new king, neutral amidst I he welter of faction and Intrigue, grew popular slowly, but certainly; but It was not In him to become beloved. Forty-five years ago King Gehrge married tbc Grand Duchess Olga Constantinovlna, who bore him seven children. A democrat abroad. Ihis king was an absolute autocrat In his home. All Athens knows as common talk the details of the mon arch’s private life. ^ Rising at 7, always unattended. Mary Boyle O’Reilly. the king regularly indulged himself in the unroyal task of making his own coffee, He brewed it thick as treacle and It was half-filled with grounds. This, with Turkish cigar ettes and the chief newspapers of the world, occupied the hours unttt 10 o'clock, when the royal family met for breakfast in the queen’s morn ing room. * Here no child was so old or so occupied os to be held excused from the daily chorus of "Good morning, father." At these gatherings from whieh even the court was excluded, the royal family admittedly took coun sel. Here Prince Constantine, an ticipating that Greece was spoiling for a fight, brought the sovereign to. realize that the Greek Infantry was armed with condemned French rifles and that Greece's artillery supplies were Inadequate. Here Prince George, admiral of the Greek navy, urged the necessitous condition of the fleet. Germany’s kaiser has long hated and feared these frank family gath erings: For twenty years his sister Sophie has been crown princess of Greece, and lie knew, none better, that she spoke freely of ills political secrets at the breakfast parties in Athens, because, ceasing to be Lutheran and Prussian, she had become orthodox and Greek, and had no doubt helped "George the. trader" to secure com mercial treaties long desired by "William tile war lord.” For George was a really great busi ness man. Fifty years’ attention to business, national and private, the king of Hellenes made himself the money king of his adopted country, and private possessor of at least $20, 000,000. When he. came to the throne there was not a mile of railway in Greece. Now the entire system is un der royal control. Athens was rather like a deserted fishing village in 1860. Today fleets of merchant ships, con trolling the trade of the Levant, fly the flag of the sea king, George of Greece. At the time of his marriage the king bought an immense tract of land at Dlkelra, fifteen miles from Athens, where, by employing the labor of prisoners, lie made the domain a ver itable fairyland. As dairy king, olive king and raisin king, he reaped gol den harvests from a lately sterile soil. A man of ready wit. unaffected and apparently easy-going, George was, withal, of iron will. "If the nation goes your way," he warned the min istry in a time of crisis, "It will be a ruined nation. While I am king, therefore, the way of Greece shall be mine. I am willing to abdicate, but I will not yield." A solemn luncheon was served every day In the royal dining-room at half past 1! o'clock. Again the en tire royal family was obliged to be present. Woe betide the unfortunate mem ber of the royal household, be It queen, prince or princess, who waa not waiting in the dining hall for the entry of the king. Rather than risk that unpardonable sin, Princess Marie, who alone was unafraid of the royal martinet, has been known to slide down a banister, arranging the last details of her toilet as she sped. This luncheon was semi-public— practically a function of state. Be fore rising, the king always an nounced his plans for the afternoon— a dedication, a ride into the moun tains, or more frequently an unat tended stroll. The king was a fa miliar figure In the streets of Athens, In slouch hat and ^increased gray coat. He was always recognisable by his giant Dane, "Dick,” who always followed his master. On these long walks King George was easily accessable to his liberty loving subjects, who came to him with their grievances or petitions as children to a father, certain that they would he heard, soothed or comforted with a warm hand clasp. But of all • the points of Interest tn George’s private life, the most interesting was his love and pride in his wife's ability to cook. When Prince George's marriage to Princess Marie Bonaparte brought him the millions of Monte Carlo and a luxury new to Athenian court life, his royal father commented: "You can afford luxury—you mar ried a rich woman. Now, I married a wife who could roast me a piece of meat—when I could afford the meat!" WOULD DEPORT WOMAN POLICE ARE CARINO FOR The police of the First Precinct ore greatly perplexed over the ease of a young woman, Margaret (latyas, who appealed for assistance several days ago, and is now on the hands of the city. Through an interpreter the woman said that sht had come from Pas sale. She was given food and then put on a car to return. She called at the First precinct jjigatn last night, and the police, having no other place to put her, locked her ill a cell Inquiry In Passaic failed to bring any Information about her. Finally Captain Ryan concluded that she was demented and request - cd Police Surgeon Clark to make an examination as to her sanity, with a view to turning her over to the | immigration authorities to have her j deported. HELD AS SHOPLIFTER TUlle Spinner, of 80| East Jersey street. Elizabeth, was held for the grand jury today by Judge Hahn In the First Criminal Court, In the sum of $200 hail, to answer the charge of shoplifting. The young woman was arrested several days ago in a Market street department store by lieuten ants Ryan and Farrell, after she had been trailed for several'hours by the : store detective. When searched a suit-case which she carried contained two shirtwaists, two underskirts, thir teen pairs of stockings, twenty-three men’s neckties, one clock, four yards of lace, eleven yards of Hatln and sev eral other articles. CHILDREN UNPROVIDED FOR David Strachan. an Iron worker, of 75 Frellnghu.vsen avenue, was ar rested today by Court Officers Rom miehs and Kekerline on a complaint sworn out by Superintendent Kim ball, of live Society for the Preven tion of Cruelly to Children, charging him with failure 10 provide for his three children. When arraigned be fore Judge Hahn in the First Crimi nal Court he was ordered to contrib ute $9 a week for their support. ———- , . . <f BOY SCOUTS HONOR TAFT AUGUSTA.

POSTOFFICE EASTER RUSH THRICE GREATER THAN ’12 300,000 Pieces of Mail Han dled This Year. All the extra substitute* available have been put to work at the local postofflce to cope with the Easter rush of the in and out-going mail. The business thlH year is much greater than ever before. East year the estimated number of pieces of Easter mall handled at the postofflce here was 100,000. This year ijils number has been Increased to approximately 300,000. Both these figures are based on the traffic of the two days Immedi ately preceding Easter. The fourth-class mail has increased even more than the ordinary or first class mail. East, year's figures for ihe two days were 7,000. This year it Is estimated that more than 17,000 parcels were handled. The establishment of the parcel post cannot be held entirely respon sible for this enormous Increase be cause of the fact that most of tn?“ traffic has been in small parcels which ordinarily come under the fourth-class mall.

WILSON Urge Him to Nationalize Move ment for Protection of Un derpaid Girls. HE PROMISES TO GIVE MATTER HIS ATTENTION Probers Hold Meeting Attended by Prominent Washington Society Women. WASHINGTON, March 22,—Illinois vli’e crusaders, the senatorial com mission headed by Lieutenant-Gov ernor Barrett O’Hara, is in Washing ton today, seeking to nationalize the scope of their inquiry. To that end the commission first sought the aid of President Wilson, with whom they conferred at the White House. Lieutenant-Governor O’Hara was accompanied at his con ference with the President by the other members of the commission. Senators Edmund Real), F. Jeff Tos sey, D. T. Woodward and Niels Juul After outlining to the President the rseults of the inquiry in Illinois, which revealed In many instances that girls and young working wdlhen were paid less than a living wage and that many of them led double lives,, the commissioners requested the President to call a national con ference of State governors to plan a systematic and sane campaign to bet ter working conditions of women throughout the nation. Federal cooperation was sought In the movement already begun In many States for the appointment of State commissions similar to that from Illinois to conduct inquiries into the wage situation and into organized vice conditions in the various States At the White House'conference the question of federal Inquiry through the departmen’ of justice Into the white slave traffic also was discussed. One of the means proposed as basic relief for women was the enactment of a federal minimum wage law. Later today the Illinois commission conducted a hearing, to which were invited several hundred prominent welfare workers, clergymen, officials and many prominent women In Washington social and club life. Lieutenant-Governor O’Hara sought to learn the opinions of women who move in high social circles concern- | ing the influence upon working girls of the extravagance of women of wealth. Among prominent women who ac cepted Invitations to the conference were Mrs. Kdson Bradley, Mrs. Hen-" non Jennings, wife of a South African diamond millionaire; Mrs. Christian Hommlck, Mme. Havenith, wife of the Belgian minister; Senora RIano, wife ofJhe Spanish minister; Mrs. Huntingdon Wilson and Mrs. W. Mur ray Crane. Ardeen Foster, international com missioner of the British federation for the emancipation of sweated women and girls and white slavers, had a conference with Mr. O’Hara during the morning and accompanied the Illinois commission to the White House. ' The Illinois investigators In an ex ecutive session today determined not to go to New York at this time, but to return to Springfield from Wash ington and visit New York later. After Lieutenant-Governor O’Hara had urged President Wilson to call a conference of governors and repre sentatives of various State vice com missions, Senator Juul urged an ap propriation by Congress for homes for girls in six or seven great' industrial centres where women, traveling front State to State, could he cared r while seeking employment. “The government takes excellent care of every pound of tobacco that is shipped from Kentucky," said Sen ator Juul, "and it keeps careful watch over every pound of butterine. Surely It can devote some money and atten tion to the American girl who is forced to travel In search of employ ment." Senator .Juul ana senator oeo.ii uui lined to the President briefly some of the revelations of the Illinois com mission's investigation in that State. '•If we were but to begin to outline all the conditions," said Senator Juul, "they would, Mr. President, be al most unbelievable. Much of the tes timony we secured is absolutely un printable. The conditions arc such as to demand national investigation and the States need the government back of this movement to remedy them.” The iJieutenant-Governor urged particularly that the national confer ence be called either this summer or in the fall, at which remedial legisla tion could be discussed and planned. He stated that the governors of thir ty-two States already had agreed to Join In the movement. President Wilson thanked the com mission for their presentation of the subject. ‘‘I do not believe T can grasp Hie full gravity of the situation from this brief outline," said the President, "but if you will leave with me -our recommendations and record of voi r investigation, T can assure you I will give the matter serious attention." HE IS HELD, SHE PAROLED FOR MISUSE OF MAILS On a charge of sending obscAne let ters through the mail, Paul W. Eber soll, of 16 Essex street, was held In $500 bail 'for the Federal grand jury today by Commissioner Stockton. Mrs. Elizabeth Garret, of 158 Hin den avenue, Arlington, was paroled In the custody of her husband on the sume charge. Both the accused were arrtsted by Deputy Cnited States Marshal Beckman, after an investi gation by Postofflce Inspector Fran cis Butler. CLASH OVER ART NOTIONS NEW YORK.

Keith, have made rather indignant denials of statements print ed in the Philadelphia Press this morning to the effect that Miss Ar nold, who disappeared on December 12, 1910, Is in her home dying. The Press states that she was found on Thursday of last week on the East Side in a helplessly dazed condition. it says that she is in a third-story room of her home at 108 East Seventy-ninth street, in a dy ing condition. Mrs. Arnold, John S. Keith, Francis R. Arnold and John Arnold said today that there was no truth in the state ments. Mr. Keith, who !c In constant touch with the Arnolds, says they are still working on the ease and- that If ever Miss Arnold is found the fact will immediately be made known. 3 STRANGE CASES Seek Compensation for Deaths of Husbands Under Lia bility Law. Three petitions in which the death of husbands are involved and in which the widow seeks compensation under the employers' libality act were filed in the county clerk's office today. Unusual conditions are in volved In two of the petitions. One petition is that of Mrs. Florence Van Ness, of 32 Hecker street, who sues the Underwriters' Protective As sociation (the Salvage Corps) for compensation for the death of her husband, Wiliiam J. Van Ness, on January 26 last. Van News was out on a nre run in the Salvage Corps automobile on the morning of January 11, and was thrown from the wagon as it turned the corner of Magazine and Frankfort streets. Van Ness did not seem to lie seriously injured at the time, but later went to the City Hospital, where he complained of pains in his hack. He died on January 26, pneumonia being given as the cause of death. An autopsy performed by County Physi cian McKenzie revealed the fact that one of the bones In Van Ness's spine had been broken by the fall from the auto and this. Instead of pneumonia, had caused his death. It was pointed out at the time that no blame could attach to the hospital for the incor rect diagnosis, as Van Ness had not informed them of the accident on going there for treatment. Mrs Van Ness, through John E. Helm and Matthew .1. Ready, seeks commutation of the compensation she Is entitled to from the Protective As sopiation, her husband having been In receipt of $100 a month as a patrol man at the time of his death. The case will be heard before Judge Will iam P. Martin on April 17. In the case of Mrs. Annie H.lfand, of 142 Somerset street, the right of an unborn child to figure In a com pensation settlement under the act will be tested for the first time in this county, and, it Is believed, in the State. * Jacob Helfand, her husband, was employed by the National Rox and Lumber Company as a teamster. On December 30, while delivering goods at the plant of the Eclipse Tanning Company on Sussex street, he was caught and crushed to death in an elevator shaft. Mrs. Helfand, through Philip J. Schotland, her counsel. seekH through the courts compensation for herself, a child of a year and a half, and the child as yet unborn. Judge Martin will hear this case on April 10. The third case also has an unusual angle in that the right to recover damages twice for the death of a hus band will be tested. In this instance Mrs. Hattie Klotz Is suing the New ark Paving Company for compensa tion for the death of her husband, Charles Klotz, on December 8, 1912. Klotz was employed as a laborer on some work In progress near the Le high Valley station in Elizabeth ave nue, and while carting stone across the street railway tracks In a wheel barrow was struck and killed by a Main line car of the Public Service railway. The railway company has already settled with Mrs. Klotz for the death of her husband by paying her $800. The Newark Paving Company, in their answer to the petition of Mrs. Klotz. sets up that as Mrs. Klotz has already secelvod payment through settlement of an action for damages against the railway company she is not entitled to recover damages under the employer^ liability act from the company emplp.ving the husband. The case will be heard before Judge Harry V. Osborne On April 17. COURT DECLINES TO FIND COMPLAINT INSUFFICIENT Chief Justice William S. Oummere today denied a motion made by Spalding Frazerf of Rlker & Riker, to set aside the bill of complaint filed bv Samuel Kalisch, jr.. in the suit of Gussie Bernstein against the' Jersey Motorcar Company Miss Bernstein was hit by an auto mobile owned by the company, on Fifteenth avenue, between Hayes and Bedford streets, several months ago, and sues to recover damages. Mr. Frazer objected to the complaint on the ground that It stated only that the defendant carelessly, negligently and Improperly ran into and against complainant, knocking her down. He contended that under the new practise act this was insufficient and not specific enough, but Chief Justice Gummere ruled-against him and held the bill of eorfip'laint was proper as drawn. - -- PLANNERS TELL OF TRAFFIC NEEDS Lack of “Snap,” They Say, Causes Four Corners Congestion. (Continued from First Page.) streets, through which fourteen cities and towns pour their traffic, the ex perts recommend the widening of Bridge street from the. Passaic river to Broad street and the changing of Vs grade. "In this connection," the commis sion's experts say, "great possibilities exist of arranging an entrance plaza which would be particularly fitting for this so-called gateway. "With Washington Park and the Public Library situated as they arc the possibilities are almost unlimited. The trolley track lay-out should be altered so as to secure a direct track crossing of Broad street * * * re quiring the placing of tracks in Wash ington street." The removal of (lie Elizabeth and Main Line cars from Broad street be tween Market street and the D., L. and W. station is also recommended. These lines should he turned at the loop suggested in connection with the straightening of Washington street and the tracking of William. "This arrangement should be worked out and, possibly In this connection, the cutting through of Frelinghuysen avenue to Clinton avenue would be expedient. By rerouting the cars through Washington street and car rying them to the present loop at the Lackawanna station over existing tracks and new tracks to be laid on Plane street from Central avenue to Orange street another alternative so lution Is possible. Reroute Other bines. "A further amelioration could be secured if the Bloomfield and Paterson lines were rerouted over the proposed new street extending from Park place to the Pennsylvania railroad station. Kven without the construction of this new street, however, hy properly straightening and connecting Mul berry street much relief could be ef fected.” Supplementing the recommendations of the City Plan Commission’s experts are ".Suggestions for the relief of traffic congestion, Immediate and future, at the junction of Broad and Bridge streets,” by Hariand Bartholo mew, assistant engineer. These suggestions are practically the same as those embodied in the recom mendations of the City Plan Commis sion expwrts, to whom they were ad dressed by way of report on August 5, 1912.
