Charging that President Taft had misused the $25,000 travelling expense fund voted yearly by congress, Chairman Fitzgerald of the house appropriations committee today bit terly attacked the president during con sideration of the sundry civil appropria tion bill. He declared the president on his recent western trip had mulcted the accompanying newspaper and secret ser vice men in spite of protests, to bolster his depleted funds. "It is deplorable," lie said "to have to state these facts to this house and to the country." Mr. Fitzgerald declared, however, that he would vote for the item which even tually was adopted 78 to 55. He said face tiously that he believed It would "pay the democratic party and the country if the president travelled jthe year around." He then referred directly to the presi dent's western trip. "What happened in order to enable him to make this trip?" he demanded. "The cost of a special train to be utilized by the president in that trip was figured out in advance. The pro rata cost of each person was figured out and every news paper man who accompanied that train was requested to pay $1,500 to pay for his expenses. Out of the fund for the suppression Of counterfeiting and the pro tection of the president of the United States, $4,500 was taken to defray the ex penses upon the train of three employes of the secret service against the protest of the acting chief of the secret service that to do so would create a deficiency In that appropriation." Former Speaker Cannon, Representative Gillette of Massachusetts and Repre sentative Shirley of Kentucky, democrat, argued in favor of the item. They held it was necessary that the president see the country and that the country see the president. Mack Finds Hall Very Satisfactory BALTIMORE, . Md., June 14.

Ridgeway and William Powell Leading In Race for the Place Southireat Residents Want Car Service. Notwithstanding the splendid campaign made by City Treasurer Gillin to IncroaM his force of employes in the office of the treasurer, there will be no additional tax collectors appointed this week an! probably none at all until Treasurer Gillin has demonstrated that his office force is overburdened with work. Mayor Thomas Hoctor, who stands op posed to any unwarranted increase of expenses, however specious the pretext be, announced last night that he ha I not appointed any tax collectors and would not Further, the mayor added that he was not quite sure that the coun cil had any right to appoint or authorize the appointment of collectors of persona! taxes. His honor announced that he had consulted on the question with Assistant City Attorney Sam Winters, who stated that it was the sole duty of the city treasurer to collect the taxes and that withoue any extra help, unless the need for the same could be shown beyond the peradventure of a doubt.

William Powell, another aspirant, an nounced yesterday that he had six coun cllmen pledged to support him for the place. Ridgeway and others state that In no case would the conditions warrant the appointment of two men. Probably between now and Monday the council will be enjoined from assuming the duties that are incumbent upon City Treasurer John Gillin to collect the taxes It is not thought probable that Gillin will invite attention to his already large office force, insisting that extra men be appointed to carry out the auty be him self is sworn to execute.
