The expenditure of sufficient money to take care of emer gency needs of the as and electric plants. Resumption of gas extension service if the state' utilities commission will order the receivers to discontinue gas service to large consumers, All these thine will h nirtmlnol fcvn. mo ramnpnis uas aaa Electric Light company In a letter! to Mayor Paine Tuesday afternoon containing tentative schedules of rates needed to raise the annual deficit of approximately $826,000. The letter and rate schedules wilt be given to the mayor either in person or presented at the operk meeting of the city commission Tuesday. Plans for a large construction program as outlined in the report of F. Q. Proutt, consulting engineer, will not be attempted by the gas company until the appraisal of the property of the company Is completed and a rate of re turn established by the state utilities commission. The percentage of increase can not be determined for either gas or electricity until the city commission accepts one ot the tentative schedules. All of the scheduler, however, contemplate an ad ditional total return to the company of ,the $826,000 mentioned by Mr. Proutt In his report to the mayor. "If the emergency rates are accepted by the city and granted to the com pany, the receivers will lmmcdiatly be gin the expenditure of money to take care of the additions to the plants to care for present needs," Lovick P. Miles, attorney for the receivers, said "Acceptance of new business from resi dence property will be resumed by the electric department on Oct. IB, In the event the emergency rates are granted. "There is nothing in our letter to Mayor Paine at this time relative to resumption of gas extension service. Utilities commissions in other states have held and ordered gas companies to discontinue service to large consumers In order that they might take care of the domestic needs of their patrons. The Memphis Gas and Electric com pany is producing gas Xo the limit of Its capacity now, and U may be nec essary to secure some similar 'order from the Tennessee commission before we can take on new iras business." Losing Coin in Gas. Speaking of the contemplated rate In creases, Mr. Miles Baid that it was cost ing the company $1.60 per 1,000 cubic feet to deliver gas ready for use, while their present rates net them $1.29. The company figures It is losing 81 cents on each thousand feet supplied. "People use gas because it la more economical and convenient than other fun- Increased rates- may force some people to use other fuel and' thereby relieve the burden we now have and permit the assumption of new business. Many large consumers use gas and It may be necessary to secure an order from the state- commission ordering the receivers to TJIscontinue this service and take care of the domestic needs. In this event, of course, service might be resumed earlier" than otherwise. "The elaborate building program which would necessitate the expendi ture of approximately $5,500,000, as out lined In Mr. Proutt's report cannot be undertaken until the appraisal is com pleted and a permanent rate established by the commission, guaranteeing a rea- I fy ment over and above operating cost. I'r "For present needs, however, the. re ceivers will Issue notes having priority over everything else after actual cost of production has been taken Oare of, and will use the money derived from these notes for making necessary ad ditions to the plants and putting them in such shape as to enable them to take care of present demands." Mr. Miles spent the greater part of Tuesday morning In conference with Frank S. Elgin and J. F. Ralmer re ceivers of the company and experts of the gas company. The request of the gas company is contained In a very lengthy letter addressed to Mayor Paine and outlines In detail the alms of the gas and electric company. "The condition of the Memphis Gas and Electric company," Mr. Miles said, "Is not a local condition, but is preval ent more or less throughout the nation. Nearly every gas manufacturing com pany has more business than It can handle and many state commissions have found It necessary to eliminate large consumers in ordiT to care for the needs of the many small consum- .-1 PRESENT GRAND JURY NEARS END OF TERM The present Shelby county grand Jury will meet officially for the last time Friday, when Its report on city and county Institutions will be handed to JuiIti' J.

Line Recall Battle Shall Be Pitched. Members of the city administration must determine whether or not they will test he constitutionality cf tho re el II act'or so before the' people In an other election. When this decision la reached, tho Citizen's league will stand souarely behind thorn In a fight to tho finish. . It was thus that Leslie M. Stratton, chairman of tho league, summed up the league's attitude toward the city administration In the event recall pe titions are presented and found to bo In compliance with the law. The league held a meeting Monday at which time the recall mutter was taken up and discussed. Resolutions Condemning the circulation of the pe titions were adopted and the league went on record as favoring a clean-cut policy Insofar as tne present city gov ernment is concerned. The mayor and his associates were elected bv a big p-ajorlty m November, 1919, with the aid and asistance of the Citizen' league. They were drafted Into serv ice by the league and ran as straight candidates of the league. Mayor Palnc declared Tuesday that he knew nothing of the meeting of tho league Monday and that the action tak en by league members was entirely vol untary. For the present both the league and the city commission are awaiting the first move by the backers of the recall. As soon as the petitions are filed with the city clerk. It will then be incum bent upon the administration to decide upon their course of action and Mr. fetrattcn says, the Citizen's league will be governed accordingly. Leslie M. Stratton was Induced to accept (he chairmanship of the league i.r,d an active campaign will bo car. rlcd out in the event the petitions ara presented. If ihe city commissioners decide to test the validity of uie recall law it will devolve upon tho Citizen's league to make ihe fight for them. On the other hand If the mayor and commis sioners decide to go before the peopla of Memphis for a vindication of their administration a political campaign similar to the one which swept them Into office will be outlined and put Into working .condition as soon as possible. Leaders In the league declare reports tf disaffection among the membership as being without foundation and the action of -ihe league Monday In ' de ciding to back the mayor and his as sociates was taken largely as a precau tionary measure and for tho purpose Of refuting these reports. A committee of five was appointed to select suitable candidates for the city school board. This committee will re port tltse names at a later meeting and they will be submitted to the league for indorsement. The committee Is composed of Mrs. Edgar Lee, chairman: Mrs. Mary Forrest Bradley, R. L Jor dan. S. M. Williamson and Mitchell W. Rosenthal. Legislative Ticket Resents Efforts Of Trouble Brewers A strong Intimation has been given of a purpose to select a second legis lative ticket to make a fight against the Democratic nominees in the No vember election if the candidates se lected by the Citizens' league last spring do not come through with satisfactory pledges. ' At a meeting of the Citizens' league leaders Monday a committee was ap pointed to confer with the legislative nominees and discuss legislative pro grams, policy and other matters "with the view to assuring their election " Just whv there should be any a'ppre hention over the election of the Demo cratic ticket Is n, hidden secret since there Is no announced opposition to the ticket which has the Democratic nom ination and was selected-hy a commit tee representing the Citizens' league and formally received tho unanimous Indorsement of the league Itself. Some of the nominees have been put on guard by interrogations from sources that they believe have no other pur pose than to stir up trouble. One member was approached and a conversation something like the follow ing ensued: "Which side aYe you going to tnke when a break comes between the city and other factions?" "There Isn't going to be any break," was the answer. "But I know there Is and I want to know what you are going to do," was the retort. "Then if you know there is going to be a break that I don't know any thing about, maybe you know which side I will take." So far as the legislative nominees are concerned they are In entire Ignor ance of anv friction In any source. They do not believe there l any and regard efforts to commit them as a meddlesome attempt to causo trouble and Induce an Independent ticket to make the race aralnst tho nominees. Nominees questioned Tuesday were somewhat disconcerted upon lt-nrnlng that a committee had been anpolnn-d by tho Citizen.' league to confer with them with the view to "Insuring their election." They know of no difflru'ty In the way and feel no apprehension over the outcome. There Is no other ticket in the field and they have not only the Indorsement of the Citizens' league but the Democratic nomination, and nre at a loss to understand Jut what Is necessary to "Insure their elec tion," when they have no opposition. However, If there Is to be an effort to rommlt the delegation to a given nurse of conduct and a policy favor able to one fact Inn or element the nom inees will resist it.

Soviet forces on this front are on the defensive and appear to have be come exhausted as the result of their recent offensive campaign in Foland.

The vots of the state for governor, with returns from 4U small towns and plantations In remote districts missing, was: Parkhurst, Republicap, 133,817; Mclntire. Democrat, 68,24l. The Increase In the total vote waa largely accounted for by the presence at the polls of women eager to grasp the opportunity of exercising their new privilege, undaunted by a heavy down pour In the afternoon. The result showed that most of them voted tho . Republican ticket. As the returns came In, showing from the first evidence of a tremendous Re publican sweep, Democratic state lead ers were silent aa to the possible -significance of the vote with relation to ! the presidential election. Parkhurst, after being assured of his ekction. gava tne viewpoint of the Republicans In a statement In which he pointed out that the campaign had been ''vigorously con tested by the Democrat on national issues," and said the outcome gave "most conclusive evidence that the vot ers of Maine resent the autocratic and un-American administration that the Democrats have given us." He declared It waa "equally an indorsement of Harding and Coolldge." Matters of merely stats Importance were hardly touched upon In tho cam paign. The leading speakers were men of national prominence, both parties striving to effect a good showing In the "barometer state, the only state In the union to hold Its state election (n advance of the voting for president.. For the Republicans, addresses were HARTFORD, Conn., Sept. 14. Tho Conneotlcut legislature this afternoon, by concurrent action, ratified the wo. man suffrage amendment to the federal constitution, making Connecticut tho 37th state to ratify. Rumor R, T.

Goldshy, the noted Vlckshurg criminal who escaped from Parchman convict farm nearly three weeks ago, had nearly $4,000 on his person when he departed, and that a few hour later he was "lost" In one of the swamp near the farm. Tho prison board of trustee con vened here In regular session. Members of the body admit that they heard the rumor several times, but have been unable to trace It or collect authentic evidence. Hector York, the prison guard, who confessed that he aided the escape of Ooldsby, receiving K'OO therefor, is now being held In jail at Indlanola awaiting trial at the next court term. When first placed under arrest a charge of aiding a prisoner to escape, which carries with It a comparatively light punishment, was preferred by the Parchman authorities. However, Messrs. Thames and Stone, members of the prison board, have preferred the ad. dlllonal charge of accepting a bribe, and. on his own confession that .he ac tually got flsn, a penitentiary term for the former guard Is likely. Many persons who have closely fol lowed the Ooldsbv si ndal firmly be lieve that ' : . iv "bumped off" while trying ; ,i t '.'use he had talked too niucd, i. i!

The men on the underground, at tunes, were almost brutal. "In Berlin, before tho war, the con ductors would arrest yon without the slightest compunction it you brought the slightest particle or mud into th car. The fine waa quite severe, too. In Belgium, the conductor were always looking for tips, ana woe to tne person that neglected this pourbolre. He wa always carried beyond hi stopping; place.
