S IN TARIFF WAR f ■ _ « Conflicting Statements Not Likely to Cause Change f in Rates in Bill. I - Star Bureau, Metropolitan National Bank Bldg., WASHINGTON, May 24. Conflicting statements made to the Senate finance committee as to the wages, cost of production and prices prevailing the pottery industry are likely to seriously affect the ef forts of Trenton potters to secure an increase in the rates on earthen ware proposed in the pending Under wood bill. Trenton manufacturers and work ing potters have been protesting to the committee, since the bill passed the House, that the reduction of rates on earthenware to 35 and 40 per cent, would work great Injury to the pot tery interests of Trenton, and would be likely to eithei* force some of the manufacturers but of business or to bring about a reduction in wages. Competition from England. Figures have been presented to the sub-committee having the pottery schedule in charge, alleging that even at the present tariff rates English pottery is brought into the country In sharp competition with the home product, that the wages paid in this country are about three times those paid in England, and that the cost of production here is much greater. Edward F. Anderson and George Jones, of East Orange, representing New York pottery importing inter ests, today were given a hearing be fore Senator Ollie James, chairman of the sub-committee, and presented figures and statements denying and attempting to refute most of the claims on which the Trenton potters base their claim for higher rates. Earthenware ls_ one of the few schedules in which the claim for in creased rates has been given serious consideration by the finance commit tee. Importers' Figures. The importers, in their statements to the committee, show a list of wgge scales paid in English potteries, seem ing to prove the wages paid there are double what the Trenton representa tives have claimed. They also chal lenge the accuracy of figures present ed by the pottery manufacturers as to relative cost of production and sell ing prices. Instead of being too low to permit the Trenton and Ohio potteries to compete, the importers told the sub committee the rates proposed in the Underwood bill are still so high as to be prohibitive. At the present time, they asserted, American white granite ware of the same grade is being sold at prices 40 per cent, below the price at which English pottery can be imported. The figures placed before the com mittee by William Burgess, secretary of the American Pottery Association, were challenged by the inffiorters. who asserted that Mr. Burgess had given to the ways ar.d means com mittee this year the same figures as to English costs of material, wages, etc., that he had presented four years ago, despite the fact that conditions had greatly changed and that the Ivages and prices of materials had greatly increased. Under the present duties, the im porters asserted, English wares are practically shut out of market, and American manufacturers are now selling their product at 30 per cent, less than imported goods could be brought in at under the proposed rates.

Dolorita O’Gorman Weds Becomes Bride of Rescuer Romance of Jersey Shore -W .1' TKOTO ©JT.C4.J VT91*^r* >ln. John Anthony Maher.

O'Gorman, which was celebrated at the senator s home in West 108th street at 11 o'clock this morning.

Of course after that her life belonged to her rescuer, and the wedding was only delayed until Mr. Maher should become established in business. Mr. Maher is now the manager of the Third Avenue Railway Company, in this city. He is a son of Edward Maher, a wealthy resident of Albany, who served from 1888 to 1890 as mayor of that city. As a youth Mr. Maher came to New York and entered the Loyola High School, from which he was graduated in 1906. He then en tered Yale and received his degree in 1909. After the wedding ceremony this morning, at which only the members of both families were present, a nup tial mass was celebrated in tin; chapel of the Loyola School.

Hitting at California because the State is seeking to eliminate the in fluence of the Japanese, Representa tive Barthoidt, of Missouri, proposed a constitutional amendment vesting in the Federal government all au thority to treat with Its non-resident citizens. Just before the introduction of the Barthoidt resolution Representative Sisson, of Mississippi, delivered hie much advertised speech on the alien land law controversy. The announce ment of this speech had aroused great Interest, as Sisson less than two weeks ago excited the House with a tirade against the Japanese, but the President prevented a repe tition by practically blue-pencilling the oratory of the Mississippi mem ber and virtually ordering him to make no statement that might be construed by the Japanese to be un friendly. "If any nation should decide that they will dictate to us how our land laws shall be framed then we would be unworthy of national existence if we submitted to such dictation. Does anyone claim that this is a declara tion of war because I announce this truth?” demanded Mr. Sisson. "It is no declaration of war for thts government to decline to override the rights of a sovereign State at the dictation of a foreign power,” he said. It was announced by Secretary Bryan that important announcements might be looked for. But he declined to indicate specifically the purport of these announcements. REV. DR.

Hamburg, president of the Board of Trade, and Secretary James M. Reilly will go to Washington to morrow, and with Senators Martine and Hughes will appear before Will iam G. McAdoo. secretary of the treasury, in an effort to have the customs port of Newark retained as an independent port and not made a dependent port under the New York district, as provided for in the exec utive order issued by former Presi dent Taft on March 4 of this year. Secretary Reilly and the committee on the Newark customs district have compiled a brief which will be sub mitted to Secretary McAdoo for his consideration. The brief in part is as follows: From the investigation which the Board of Trade of the city of New ark has caused to be made to ascer tain as to cost involved in the dis trict of Newark, we find that Instead of an actual reduction there w-ill be an increase In expenditures, which it is proposed to offset by compelling business interests in New Jersey to transact their affairs with govern ment through an office located in an adjoining State, and in so doing add expense and inconvenience certainly Justifying the entering and the filing with you this protest if this state ment is based on the following facts: All hearings involving under valua tion cases on which a hearing before the collector or appraiser is desired before an appeal for reappraisement would have to be held in New York. On all appeals from appraisers' ad vance in value proceedings would have to be heard in New York, be cause Newark would only be a sub port. All hearings on ciasstncation cases before protest, which must be made before the collector would have to be conducted In New York. Stipulations entered into and bonds given by importers to secure pos session of their goods before entry has been completed (for instance), the absence of an indorsed bill of lading will have to be secured from the collector In New York and will necessitate the importer appearing there for that purpose. Packages designated for exami nations at appraisers’ store would have to be held up until passed upon bv the appraiser in New York, thus entailing considerable delay to the importer. Where merchandise Is of a frag ile character the collector only can grant permission to have examina tion made at the importer’s residence or factory; therefore no delivery of this class of merchandise could be granted the importer until the collec tor in New York would issue consent Questions on which the iolleitor is called upon for a decision involv ing every day matters would have to be referred to New York and the importer would have to suffer delay In making entry until such decision had been made and received. Appliiations for extension of time on bonds for demission of fines or penalties. for hange of vessels’ name, for privilege of establishing bonded warehouses, would have to be made to the collector in New York, and pending decision delay would occur. These and other inconveniences it is proposed shall be inflicted upon a district transacting a volume of busi ness which of itself amply justifies the government affording every pos scible facility. We submit as an example a record of revenues collected for the years 1910 to 1912: For the year ending June 30, 1910, $192,675.51. For the year ending June 30, 1911, $229,469.17. For the year ending June 30, 1912. $233,228.09. Also a record of collections for eight months ending February 28, 1912. $153,000; 1913, $229,300; an Increase of $75,000, while the number of entries for eight months ending February 28 increased from 925 in 1912 to 1,546 in 1913; the number of vessels entered during the same period from 48 to 123 and the number cleared 76 to 127. The revenue collected during that period represented an increase of 50 per cent., while an increase of 65 per cent, is shown in the number of en tries and 150 per cent, in the number of vessels entered. For the month of March. 1913, an increase In revenue of $9,600 over the corresponding month of 1912 is shown, and it is estimated that of the present rate of increase the fiscal year ending June SO will show' total receipts of ap proximately $350,000. while the num ber of entries will almost total those of the last fiscal year. We submit the foregoing in the name of the Board of Trade of the city of Newask, on benalf of the in dustrial and commercial interests of the city. Curtis R. Burnett, William H. F Fiedler, Abram Rothschild, A V. Hamburg, president; James M. Reilly, secretary, committee on Newark cus tom district.

BY HERBERT QUICK One of the most interesting, appealing, astonishing and revolutionary schemes ever laid before the world is back of a bill introduced in the lower house of Congress by Representative Calder, of New York. It is nothing leBs than a project which has for its object the changing or the climates of Greenland, Iceland, Great Britain and Ireland, Norway, Sweden and Northwestern Russia, Finland, Lapland, and, in fact, a great part of Europe. The smile naturally follows the suggestion. Man cannot change climates. At least he never has. And to change all the climates of the North Atlantic shores—the thing is absurd. It transcends the power of puny man. It might be within the power of a race of genii— but not for the genus homo! And yet Colonel George Goethals. builder of the Panama canal, says that "the subject war rants investigation,” and that he hopes the real author of the scheme, Mr. Carrol L. Riker, of Brooklyn, ' will be successful in securing the passage of the bill.” Therefore the matter is worth thinking about. Everybody, knows about the Gulf stream and its effects on the climate of Western Eu ■ rope. It is the mightiest river in the world— but it flows through the ocean and not across the land. England is as far north as Labra dor—but England Is a great paradise most of the year, while Labrador is a frozen desert. Herbert Quick. The Gulf stream is the reason—it is the greatest not-water radiator in the universe. It flows out of the Gulf of Mexico, carrying the waters warmed by the heat of the equatorial sun. and sets northeast parallel with the At lantic coast of this country, and strikes Newfoundland._ showing the average present position and sire of the Golf stream. and Its branches, also Its rival, the Labrador enrrent. whose attack upon It In the shoal waters of the Grand Bank of Newfound land now almost neutralizes It. and show ing the location of the proposed jetty. There it is shattered and stunned by the land and the shallows called the Grand Banks. It meets the cold waters coming down between Green land and Labrador and mixes with them in these shallows where the cold water has to come to the sur face to get over the ridge of sand, instead of flowing .deep down as it does where it has the chance. These are the difficulties met by the gulf stream. But, in spite of them, it spreads out like a great fan and warms all western Europe. Mr. Riker proposes to make the drifting sand build a Jetty 200 miles long and reaching from Newfound land eastward to the Grand Banks. This Jetty is intended to cut off the cold waters in their Journey south ward. bringing such icebergs as that which sank the Titanic—and to make them flow farther east, where the ocean is deeper. There they will creep along the bottom of the sea and not interfere with the. gulf stream. A branch of the gulf stream will then flow along the west coast of Greenland—so Mr. Riker says-—and many times as much warm water will wash the shores of Iceland and the nations of Europe. In view of the fact that the gulf stream carries 90,000,900.000 cubuc yards of water per hour past Cape Florida, with a temperature of 75 degrees and that this w-ater In cooling to 35 degrees would be able to melt 1.800 square i miles of Ice ten feet thick per hour, j It Is perfectly certain that it is not doing half Its possible work in making Ireland the Emerald Isle and causing the present difference be tween the weather of sunny Italy and stormy Cape Cod—great as these differences are. t-onceaing int? possiuuu.v ul structlng the drift of sand on the sea bottom and making it build its own jetty—which Mr. Riker contends for—and allowing the elTects of it on the polar current and the gulf stream—as seem reasonable; and we | have before us the biggest problem I In terrestrial change ever offered for consideration. Do we dare to change the climates as proposed? Ireland would welcome the change She has no vested interests in frig idity. But what would Ireland say' Does she care for a warmer climate? j Would the shamrock grow as green as now? Would England be willing to dis pense with her fogs and become sunny like Italy? Would Scotland trade her dour j weather tor that of northern France? What would become of the poetry ' of British weather? How would the I readers of Dickens interpret his fags in which Gaffer Hexham took his toll of the floating bodies on the Thames and the snowstorms that whitened Mr. Pegotty’s cost? But Norway and Sweden may be counted upon as favoring the New foundland jetty. They would gain by it. even though the ice trade with England were imperiled. And Russia—well, when one considers that Russia's greatest need is an ice free port, that Archangel on the White Sea is a fine harbor which would be brought into the circle of ice-free ports by Mr. Rlker's jetty— if the scheme works—one may easily gee what a huge international affair this harmless-looking House bill No. 28,239 may become. The bill, however, only provides for a commission to study the plans for the jetty and compute its probable effects, and the eminent men , who ask for the passage of the bill have thereby only evinced an interest in the matter. They do not accept all Mr. Rlker's views. But there is no doubt that the minds of many sane and well-in formed people are a good deal im pressed by Mr. Rlker and his claims. POLICE AND FIREMEN OF PERTH AMBOY RIDE FREE FFrom a Staff Correspondent.] TRENTON. N. J..

It is also held that the company shall carry the police and firemen whether In uniform or not. provided they are on duty. SHERIFF ALWAYS I Wedin's Discovery of lll^al Procedure Will Not Change | Essex Methods. The discovery by Sheriff Wedin, of Hudson county, that for years the of ficials of the various countie* have been using an illegal procedure in de livering prisoners from the county jail to the courts for trial or sen tence is not likely to make any ma terial change in the method used M this county. Prisoners In the county jail Who art wanted in court for trial or sen tence are delivered by the warden of the jail to court attendants on an order signed by the clerk of the court. Sheriff Wedin contend* that the law requires that these order* must be signed by the trial Judge, although since 1898 the system of a clerk-signed order has been In vogue. It is pointed out that in Esses county the prisoners are never out of the custody of the sheriff, in that the court attendants are attached to the sheriff's office and are under hi* jurisdiction, and that therefore the prisoners are in the custody of the sheriff at all times while actually out of the county Jail. Sheriff W'edin contends that in al lowing prisoners to leave the Jail on a written order not signed byl the Judge the sheriff is technioaljy guilty of “voluntary escape." Thi* view is not taken by the Newark court officers, in 'view of the fact that the prisoner is never out of the cus tody of the sheriff or one of hi* rep resentatives. Sheriff Monahan and Under-shertff Hyland would not discus* the matter today, not having examined the law involved: but it is not expected that there will be any material change In the manner of handling prisoner* be tween the Jail and the court* In this county. The same procedure that appliec to prisoners has been used in the caee of wdtnesses held under detention, and this is also attacked by the Hud son county sheriff, who says a writ of habeas corpus ad testificandum i* legally necessary to produce such a witness in court. In Essex county if has always been the custom to obtain a writ of habeas corpus ad testifi candum when the testimony of per sons confined in prisons other than the county jail is required.
