Iremalned Willi the c.omp.niy in \;irloiis

Mr Mildi-am had offered hlin.self to tho

I'nder "stabl.- anrl garace erpilp- 
nirnl" M'- .Mildram claimed the deiu-e- 
clation rate of ItlJJ charKcd off by the; 
company was too high and said that I 
he had arrived at the ligiire 11.7. He I 
could not Identify the source of the | 
ll!,nir,'s which served as his basis for this 

I'nd'T tools and equipment, Mr TMU- 
dram I'ontended that the depreciation ; 
charge of l.'i per cent on $Hi)H,2i-0, \ 
amounting to SOS.tinO, should not be al- ': 
lowed, hut should be chaif,'.! against j 
operating expenses. 

.Vttcn-ney Fierce ask'd .Mr Mildram . 
if ii were' not ,-1 fad it these llemsl 
were not capitalized and a depreciation 
< harge allowed for them, tho current

To which :\Ir Mildram said that gener- 
ally speaking he would agree with that 
1- mark, bm that la thia case it did 
not work out exactly.

no saving bv taking U. (uit of one a(v

the Democratic State committee 
yesterday .succeeded in getting for- 
mer Mayor John F. l"itzgerald of

chairman and Joscpli B. I'.lv of

pcr.sitadcd Mr. I'itzgcrald to take 
tlic place of kej-noter of the conven- 
tion hy apiicaHiig to his loyaltv to 
' tlie party. The fact that Mr. V\tz- 
' gerald was the guhcrnatorial can- 
(Hdate two year.s ago was urged by 
MoGiue as a reason for Mr. I'it?- 
gcrald to act as chairman. ; 

I At the meeting of the (hn.ocratic 
committee on resolutions ni VVoiccstn 
'this afternoon, the Ku Klux Jilan and 
(prohibition will be among the issues 
I. -cost fre-ly discussed. It Is generally 
Ibelleved that the platform will coiuaui 
a specific d.elaratlon against the Klan, 
i The prohibitlcn Issue will be a harder 
'..lie for the Democrats to handle, 
(rromlnent members of the party are 
■'oiiig lo Worcester today to supiwrt 
la plank which will ask for modilication 
- fho "^'-'-tead act. StiU others are 
(PteVmined.'ln case a modification Pl'"''' 
fails, to press for a vdank which wm 
, ft.-ctivdy prohibit tho making of cldei 
bv farmers, if the apple Juice contains 
in' ire than one-halt of one per ctut. 
Tho argument for this plank Is tha^ 
Ul.,; most effective way to bring about 
a modilication of the Voliitead act is 
to deprive the farmers of their favorite 
beverage, thus forcing them lo support 
t laiper general nlcolmllc content 
■iaus.' In the Volstead act. 
It l.-i possible that lie prohlbitlc- 
I Issue may be brought on to the tloor 
of the l.'emocratlc ciiiivcutuni.

This Is a school for the feeble minded. 
The trustees wrote, "We should be dere-

Curley Says He Fiasi;:, 
Failed on Four 
Big Issues 

NEW BEDFORD, Oct. -'.\-.\s- 
sailing the "silence" ol; Licntcnant- 
fioveriior Fuller on the Ku Khix 
Klan, Mayor Curley of Boston, 
Democratic candidate for Governor, 
charged his opponent v.'ith failure to 
take a position on what h< 







He said, in part: 

"There are four major is.'iups before 
the electorate of Massachusetts upon 
which my opponent as a candidate (or 
Governor .should mnlce public declara- 
tion before anyone cnn .liistif:.' castinB: 
a vote In bis behalf at the polls upon 
election day. 

"The first affects vitally tlie riRht of 
American eitijenn to the enjoyment of 
constitutional Kuaranl<-es. The right 
lo life, liberty and the pursuit of happl- 
nnss without rcRrird to race, creed, or 
color in America is fundamental, niid 
.iny organization tb.-it altempta t(j 
abridge this riRht i.s destructive of the 
l)'>aoe, harmony and Rood order upon 
which patriotism rests. I have repeat- 
edly challeuKcd yMvan T. Fuller to de- 
clare his position with reference to tlie 
Ku Klnx Klaii, and lo tbe present time 
lie has deflLicd to di'olare against this 
iiidcons, nn-Am"rlcan nri:;a nl?-at ion. No 
man worthy of the title American citl- 
5icn can Justify casting a vote In Ills 
behalf until lie has declared against 
tlie Klan. Tlie Klan must be driven out 
nf Massachusetts, and to the »onduct 
of this work T shall devote all the pow- 
er Invested In me as Governor of this 

Commercial Problem 

"The second vital question for con- 
nlderation affects the existence of all 
the people of Massachusetts. It may 
bn said to be the bread and butter | 
proposition of this campaign, namely, 
the re.storatlon of commerce and the 
l)rpmotion of Industry. To the present 
time Mr. Fuller has failed to dlscu.os 
this all-Important proposition. Com- 
merce and Industry can only be pro- 
moted through generous and wise ex- 
penditure of public monay. The parsi- 
monious policy of the Kepnblican party 
in this Commonwealth Is in large 
measure responsloie tor tne ku-huk""""^- 
tion of comflnerce and in the stifling of 

Says Mayor, Parang No 

Taxes, Doesn't Care How 

Public Money Is Spent 


*'I never knew until this mornlTig 
why Jim Curley was such a apcnil 
thrift with other people's ittoney,' 
said Lt-Gov. Fuller at his rallici 
last night, "but at last tho secret 

is out 

"According to th* morning papom hf 
doesn't pay any taxes at all. Naturallj 
ho doeen't care how much of our monej 
Is spent, beoauaa It doesn't come out ol 
him. I don't Itnow how ha runs thai 
palace out on the .lamalcaway without 
drawing a little somethlne, but that of 
cours« la another question." 

Th« lieutenant-Kovemor spoke at ral- 
lies In the Charlestown Hlpth school, at 
BIks' hall In Medford square, and at 
Reavorni hall In Jamaica Plain. Speaker 
GlUott spoke In Charlestown and Med- 
foiyJ. The Charlestown rally, held In an I Ptat' 
overwhelmlnKly Democratio ward, was 
small, with only a Jew more than 100 
persona present. biR those In Medford 
Rn."! JaTn.»!ca Plain were well attended. 

Speaker Qlllett declared tho Isstio In 
the campalirn 1b the support of Presi- 
dent CoolldttB. He said the election of 
the President is now a certainty, but 
that If CoolldgB Is to carry out the poli- 
cies enunciated In his speech of Thurs- 
day night he must hav« a Congress In 
sympathy with him. 

He discussed the Jsiues raised by 
I Senator La Follette, partlcalarly tho 

i proposal to clip the wings of the su- 
preme court. This proposal, ho said, 
strikes at the roots of the American 
system of 'Kovsmment, aa under It 

every arelitifiwiranteed by the constl»j 

ttitlon for 135 years mlirht bo ""[fP* i 
away by a fanatical Congresa Glllott : 
also discussed the tarlfr Issue, pointing , 
out that the record of the Damoeratlo 
party Is contrary to the best interests 
of MaaaachusettK. 

Fuller apparently enjoyed his eren- 
Ing Immensely, and every shaft aimed 
at Curley was good natured. The 

t'harlestown rally was held only ft short 
(ilst.ance from the place where ha was 
born, while the Modl'ord rally was near 
Mrs. Puller's birthplace, and he ex- 
pressed the hope that tho voters of 
both sections would take a neighborly 
Interest lu his candidacy on election 


At all three meetings Fuller d!acu.^sed 
tha Ku Klux Klan Issue quite frankly. 
Ho told of tho attacks on him In klan 
newspapers In tho primary campaign, 
and drew a l.atigh as he repeated the 
counts In tho klan's Indictment of his 
candidacy. ; 

"i thought after they got through j 
with me," he said, "that there wouldn't ' 
bo any doubt as to where I stood i 
on the klan. But now Curley says I'm 
a ku kluxer. To me tho Introduction 
of racial and religious Issue.s In a po- 
litical carnpaifrn Ik most distasteful. 
When I am Governor of Massachusetts 
1 shall know no race or creed or color. 
T shall be what I have always tried to 
be, a liberal, broad minded, average 
American citizen." 

Fuller renewed his attack on the Cur- 
ley administration and said that the 
mayor, who once ad\'ocated tho pay- 
as-you-go iKillcy, has ikjw become an 
.loostle of the "sneiul-as-you-go" Idea. 

"The Uepublican pirty in thiE cam- 
paign." he said, "stands on its re^cord 
r.t tho State House of furnishing relief 
t(i tho over-burdened taxpayers of the 
Slate. Our liemoeratlc frleiid,s tell tis 
(liat tho iieoploi are tired of hearing that 
we have reduced the state df bt 16 
iiillllnns and the state tax four millions, 
and that in four years wo have not l.s- 
sued a single be-id^

Cllhu 11. ;Uone, assistant United 
district attorney, and target 
for snnie of Mayor Chirley's radio 
speeches, said nf a rally In Balom Last 
Mlf;lu that (.'urley Is an "Inverted klans- 
inan," and tirediefed that tho mayor's 
"appeal to tho lowest Instincts of racial 
and religious prejudice" would be re- 
niidlated by the votem. He repeated 
Ills rharKo that Curley In office ha."!

.'^Itout.'^ <it "You're a liar, rhrow him 

out," and threats of bodily harm made dur- 
ing .Adiov.-'s speech, failed to break up the 
tally. At one point the lieutenant gover- 
nor started to take oft his coat to go after 
one of the men who was leading the dis- 
turbanoe, but Adlow placed a restraining 
hand on his arm and shouted "Let me take 
care of them." Raising his voice so that it 
could be heard by every one of the three 
hunt'red or more men who crowded the Ions' 


not fooled by him. ■ Any on* yhi> !>*•.•*•«!

Lower assessments on real estate, and what 
did the people get? — much higher a»»o»»-

"He has treated his employees without 
rogtn-d to them or their famllled. The 
treatment of municipal employen.i In the 
days of Boss Tweeil dwindles Into Tillr«»- 
sh iiisigniluaiico as compared with the 
alrocious treatment received at the handK 
of Mayor Curley. Hero we have tho cpec- 
taclo ot city employees, regardless of 
whether they are Republicans or Demo- 
crats, harnes.'^ed and tied to the Curley 
machine and compelled to go out .and work 
for him uiKler fear of the political guillo- 
tine. Similarly they have beeti compeded 
lo dig down into their pay envelopes to 
help lin.-ince his campaign." j 

. "'i'ou're a liar," shouted a dozen Cur-, 
leyites in a chorus, 

"I am not a liar," answered Adlow. 
."■you can't prove ^that any employee ever- 
paid any money into the mayor's campaign

"You're a liar I" came the chorus again, 

I followed by shouis and that fcr

speakei'. Many of the audience became

hecklers and pioit,-d.;d Us give tb"m, as 
well as Mayor Curley, one of the severest 
tongue-lashings heard In a political cam- 
palgTi in Boston in recent years. 

Offore the disturbance ended an over- 
whelming majority of the crowd was with 
the young speak, r. and he was applauded 
to the echo when he concluded by 
shouting: "Go back to your jobs and 
tell the num who .>:ent you here to break

Heckling Starts When Fuller Speaks 

Councillor Charles L. tiurrUl, who lit ii 
candidate for reelecthm to the Exectitlve 
Council, nreslded at the meeting. Rumors 
that "something Is going to happen" had 
drawn a capacity c-gwd. Mr. Fuller was 
I Introduced a.s Ih'' lirst speaker, and, 
':illhough he was heckled at times, the 
storm did not break until Adlow had start- 
ed. The governor carried tho 
battle right to Mayor Curley's doorstep. 
He sarca.stloally referred to Curley as en-

spectful hearing throughout most of hUl 

Luke Sliields, an employee oi the m»yor'« 
otnre, and other city employees most active 
In Curley's behalf, had eflged thoir way 
near to the front of the long room. They 
heckled Adlow from the start, and at first 
the speaker paid no heed to them. In his 
opening he referred to Curley and the Ku 
Klu.t klan issue. He charged the mayor 
wllh giving the Klan a dallj,- hypodermic 
to keep it alive.

"You know I am not a liar," Adlow re- 
j)ii--d, ";ind you .also know whenever 
>'(ni were licki'd in the old days you always 
resorted to .sticli cries. I want you to know

'"S'ou're no pronhel." someone shouted. 

"Hut Mlijah was ;i prophet," another 
\i.ire replii'd. 

Paying no liced lo the uproar, the speak- 
ei' continued : 

"I'uriey talks a lot about industrial de- 
vilopnienl, about development of the port 
of Boston. He talks a lot about what, he 
will get for tiio State in Washington When

..\t this point the crowd yelled and 
cheered, to the discomfort of tho Cur- 


Whit Held Tuck, a Dcmoci-al, interrupted 
the speaker to shout : 

"How about Tom White, chairman of 
the commission on admlnislratlon and fi- 
nance, on T^eacon Hill Isn't he interested 
in politics?" 

"Ves, he is interested In politics, and 
why sb'iuidn't lie: he," Adlow answered, 
"but did you ever hear of him com-

and declared that JOlilah Adlow was a

Lomasney began rather mlNly, but 
after ho had been soing about live min- 
utes, and after be had made several 
convtilslve clutches at hia collar, and 
several men In tho crowd hail shouted > 
"take 'em o|T," he removed his collar 
and tie, displaying the pristine Klory ': 
of his oiitinK .shirt and suspenders of 
Baron Penfrew baby blue. Then he 
took anotlier swallow of water and got 
down to business. 


On tho platform taljle was a pile of 
political circulars and posters favorable 
to Tague's candidacy and attacking 
tXiuglass 'and Ijomasiiey. Manin ex- 
hibited them one by one and ridd'e,. the 
charges that were made in tlieni. One 
of tiie cliarges was tiiat Dnnglass sup- 
ported Isaac Allen against J.ihn H. Sul-

masney declared this was untrue, end 
added that a son of John H. Sullivan 
was denyln.g it at Doug-lass rallies yes- 
terday In other parts of the city. 

At the conclusion of Ills speech, lust ' 
before urslng all to vote for the straight | 
Democratic ticket, Lomasney held up ' 
the Tague circul.ars and cords and salf" 
that tlie cost of printing and distrlbni-' 
Ing them probably totalled JlO.OrtO, 
though Congressman Tague during the 
primary campaign had declared that he 
was "a poor man." 

"Tion't you worry about iioor I'eter 
the Oreai," said Lomasney In ciosing. 
"He had 10 years at ?7.'.6o and other 
UiingH a year, and w-llh (lis I.,iberty

won't have to give up llu'ir aiitmnoblle

Walsh and Curley Greeted 
with Real Ovation in 

Surpassing even ttie monster Dem- 
ocratic rally in the Arena last Sat- 
urday night in enthusiasm, if not in 
numbers, last night's closing meet- 
ing in Symphony hall was marked 
by scenes such as have rarely been 
witnessed in previous political cam- 
paigns. Just before midnight, as 
Senator Walsh and Mayor Curley 
stood and clasped hands on tV.c plat- 
form, 3500 persons stood up and 
shouted their cheers for the two 

Tf ivMs oVlook betoro Senator 
Walsh appeared and brought the vast 
audience to its feet !n an ovation that 
lasted for several minutes. While he 
was in the in^ldle of his speech the 
mayor arrived, lirecedcd by a parade of 
voters from his old ward 12, with their 
own band. Ho Bhook hand.'j with the 
senator and then took a seat Immedi- 
ately behind until Walsh had finished 
his speech. 

Introduced by the chairman of the 

to have Its effect on the voters as th«r 
are on their way to the polis. '■f^^ '^ ofL, 
Whirling through the 26 wards of tl>« 
city, the mayor ajid other candidates 
on the Democratic ticket ended a 

rally in Symphony hall. There political 
spellbinders held forth from » o'ciooK 
until the arrival of Senator Walsh, who 
preceded the gubernatorial candidate on 
the platfo-m by more than an hour. 

Trouble was threatened for a time 
out at the Municipal buildlnB In Hyde 
Park, earlier In the evening, where 
M-tyor Curley and supporting speakor.s 
arrived only to discover that a big 
Republican rally was under way In tho 
main liall of the building. I.t.-Gov. 
J'"uller, his political opponent, wa.'j ad- 
dressing the audience, wliich consisted 
of more tlian 300 persons. ^ 

Dumbfounded, the mayor demanded 
an explanation from the police ser- 
g(?ant on duty as 'to who was ro_ 
sponsilile for the mixup. The police- 
man was unable to explain, and when 
the enraged Dcmocr.atic candidate de- 
clared. "I'll fmd out who put this over ; 
on mo," he was referred to tlio cus- i 
todlan of the building. | 

The custodian explained that two | 
rallie.s, llepubllcan and DemocraUc. f 
had been advertised for last night In 
the rviuiiicipai bulidlng, an;! that the 
I^emocrats were in a hall In the base- 
ment waiting for the mayor's appear- 
ance. There the nuiyor, irritated over 
the situation, nuide a very brief talk, 
his short stay surprising those who had 
come there to listen to hlni. 

The noonday rally held In Pemborton 
square was utteudeu by an estimated 
crowd of 10,000 persons, niling the 
square from one end to the other. 
Mayor Curley was tho principal speak- 
er, denouaclng I^t.-Gov. Fuller, his op 

a ntimber of cotinty officers. 

Tha campaign ended amid feverish 
excitement. Rumors of Impending elefl- 
tlon frauds filled the air during the 
day. Liiat-mlnute accuaattong W«r»

In tho Beciuaion of party headquarters., 
precinct workers were receiving ni"" 
instructlov.i:. All over the state vot*r» 
Were gathering In halls and on Street, 
corners— or about yio radio In their 
own homes— to hear the final argu- 

In Boston all day yesterday and far^ 
Into the night sensation followed sen- 
sation, r.rayor Curley, speaking to a 
huge crowd In Pemherton square at 
noon, called I^t.-Oov. Fuller a "whole-i 
sale liar" and held him personally ao- 
countRble for the suicide of Insane pa- 
tients of state Institutions. At that 
time tho Democratic candidate for 
Governor v■•a^ planning a cross-state 
trip m tho evening, starting In Spring- 
field and ending In Boston. 1 
But In tho late afternoon Mayor Cur- 
I ley ahaiuloned the plan. Tho expla- 
nation ,,!ven r ts that Gov. Cox had 
announced his Intention to answer over 
the radio Curley'a attack on the state 
administration, and Curley wanted to 
remain at home to make his own an- 
I'swer. But this explanation was rldl- 
; ouled not only by Republicans, but byl 
j.many of the mayor's own parly. They 
! said that Curley, abandoning all hope 
';of election, was concentrating on the 

nonent, ^onj s basis of his world war 

^irBoston vote, hoping to roll up here a 

majority large enough to hold his lead^ 

rally. Gen. Charles H. Cole, Senator 'g^^d,' ^"^ ^Jj,"™;,,"/ ^'^ 

Walsh, his voice broken a «" : ^ _.^_« • 

whlsoer, declared that tho one great 
feature of the present campaign had 
been the outstanding fact that he still 
held a place In the hearts of tha peopla 
of Massachusetts and to have found 
they had followed his service In Wash- 
ington step by step. 

"Tomorrow," ho said, "Is your day. 
Tomorrow the power of government Is. 
In your hands. Tomorrow you shall say 
how you wish to be governed and by 
whom you wish to uo governed. In 
the last nnalvsla, a public servant is

To mo public office has never been a 
personal honor, but simply the oppor- 
tunity to give the highest possible serv- 
Icfi for one's fellow-men. If you do 
your part tomorrow as wo have done 
ours for the last month, the victory wUl 
be overwhelmingly triumphant." 

Mayor Curley took oeenalorf to focus 
his remarks against Gov. Cox because 
the latter had made a radio talk In sup- 
port of Lt.-Gov. Fuller earlier In tho 

evening. -, * , „ 

"Gov. Cox. has again seen fit to talk 
for Alvan T. Fuller, this time from the 
Edison radio station," he said, ".So I 
cancelled my trip to Springfield and; 
Worcester tonight so that I might go 1 
through tho wards of the city of Hoston 
ftnd tell the voters what sort of a man 
Alvan Is." 

■ Ho then proceeded to renn parts or 
the speech that Gov. Cox made over tho 
radio, and then challenged every stato- 
riient the governor made, especially In 
reference to the administration of the 
■tale Institutions, and ended hy saying 
tlrnt he had no doubt as to tha Hnal

Gov. Cox made his speech, a smash- 
ing attack on the type of camjiaign 
Curley has put up, and a general denial 
that the Inmates of .stalo ln:ititutlons 
have been <'arrled any comforts. Jjt. - 
Gov. Fuller, starling In .Stou(;hton and

had come to "lift tho veil of charity,

A No-Tip Establishment 

The Mayor and Mrs. Curley will leave 
this morning for Yama Tama Farms, 
Anamanock Coitnty, New York. Here 
he will sojourn for two weeks and at- 
tempt to regain some of the vigor he 
expended In the bitter contest for the 

Yama Tama Farms, according to the 
Mayor, Is a verltabio paradise. It Is a 
no-tip establishment maintained by a 
wealthy New York advertising man 
who operates the place at a loss an- 
nually of $150,000.

Commissioners Reject Plan 
for More Parking Space 

The Bo.slon street commissioncr,s 
after a hearing tit City Hall ycster- , 
day rejected the proposal of the j 
Boston Motor Club for removal of 
the sidewalk along the north side of i 
the Ro.-^ton &. Albany Tailroad yards 
between E.xctt'r s-;.reet and the 
Gloucester street bridge. Several 
bu.siness men in the district sup- 
ported the project for the reason 
that it would provide more parking i 
.ipacc for automobiles and therefore 
encourage shoppers to trade in that 


Joseph A. Ilourke, comnilsslone.r of 
puhllc n-orks, oiiposed the plan. Ho 
said It would probably necessitate con- 
struction of a retaining wall at a cost 
nf J10ft,(iOO, a su mfar out of proportion 
;o the benefit iiccnilng from additional 
lurking ppacn for only 12S cars, which 
'sllmatcs showed would be th'- iiumber 
jM-r.vlded for bv remo\-al of the sidewalk. 
Commissioner UourUc also argued that 
,a conslderablo number of jiedestrlJins 
'n=ed the sidewalk and that their Inter- 
ests ought not to h« Ignored, while fur- 
thermore he was oppoBCd In general to

' ' 1 he Mayor blames Saiiford l^ates for 

dcncc as to McDade's nntitncis o,,, f;|.,HH)iiig of the imf< 

The Mayor cites four major reasons 
for the conditions at Peer Island re- 
'Kponsible for th.) sensational report of 
|romnussloner Bates. First the, group-, 
li-.R of child welfare and chronic sickj 
and .'iBed poor work with that of crlm- 
jlnals; .'second the temperamental unfit- 
ness of Deputy Mast(^r McDade and the 
legal technicalities that prevent his re- 
moval becan.-^e he is a veteran; the long 
standing customs which through usage, 
avo h'.come recognized, and fourth, of 
mmlssloner Bates' failure to comply 
with the general laws ot lOl'l and the 
participation ot commissioner of cor- 
rection, the deputy master at Peer 'Is- 
land and an employee of the Instltu-' 
lions department in "a political con-! 
KPlraoy to discredit Pr. Johnson and ■ 
Jlayor Curley." 

Says Island Overcrowded 

Tn his statement the Mayor says: 
"The tremendous Increase In (ho pop- 
ulation at Peer fsland, being an In- 
crease of nearly SOO per cent In a period 
of three years, renders It advisable for 
the city Hhortly to consider transfr-rrlng 
Its penal population to a hircer l-land

"l'.'.:il)er-leiice m sucn nialters has 
shown thill di'pn-ciation reserves need 
to be adjusted perliKllcaliy. The New 
I5nglnnd Company has en.loyed nearly 
two full cycles of the composite llf 
of its plant. A cycle In thi 
a telephone company is considered lo 
lie ap\>roxlraately a period of I!.", years. 
.Many units of tele)ihone plant have 
been retlr-ed from ser vice not because 
they were outworn, but because of In-' 
. adcfiuacy or idisoleacence resulting 
from new inventions or public retiulre- 
ments and changes. 

"If ".'i years be the composite life ot 
the New I'lngland (■ompany's plant H 
ought anually to put Int.. its reserve 
fund a sum ctiuiil approximately to 
toirr per cent of the plant Investment.

out of It for plant retired from service 
I only $3,030,000. The present accumu- 
l-ited reserve of the company Is over 
$40,0110,000. This is Miual to L7 per cent 
of lis pbrnt value. 

"This sum Is needlessly hlf;h. i' re-

the time for a read.luslmerrl, and tire

Councilmen, in Capacity as 
Commissioners, Vote 
m^^\jior Probe - 



Five city councUnien, meeting fori 
I the fir,Ht time that can be recalled 
as county commis.sioners, voted ye«- 
1 terday afternoon to inspect the 
J Deer island house of correction next 
Tuesday and tlie Charles street jail 
the following Tuesday. Mayor Cur- 
ley, who refused to attend the ses- 
sion, declared that it was illegal, as. 
the presence of six members -was 
necessary for a quorum. 

The action of the five councilmen, 
Ilealey, Lane, Walsh, Purcell and Gil- 
body, was the result of chargea of mal- 
admlnl.strallon at the island by San- j 
ford Bates, state oomml.ssloner of cor- j 
rectlon, followed by Mayor Curlcy'a 
UsmLssal of Deputy Master McDado to , 
remedy the sltuatlan. 1 


There wa,s a conciliatory note tn the 
talk of the councilmen, however. In- 
dicating that they were not proceedlns 
with the (nspeotlon with a view to «11«- 
creditlnK anyone. ; 

The group of five Issued a Bt'ate.ment 
to the effect that the law requires two 
InBpectlons a year of the Jail and house 
I of correction by the Suffolk coiuity 
I coiTimbssloners, whereas throuffV lifno- 
ranoc of the *xaot law Inspections have 
been made for ;,cars by a standing 
committee of the city council. To live 
up to the law, therefore, the council- 
men, ad commlKslonerH, will make the 
Deer Island trip Again ncrt week, al- 
though they ]u8t made It last week. 

The commissioners explained that a 
legal obligation Is Imposed upon them 
to make such Inspections and that re- 
sponsibility for ei'ch Inspentloiis "may 
not be evaded by them If the full mem- 
bership of the county commission are 
not present at the preliminary hear- 

Councilman Moriarty'a absence was 
ax-counted for by his atlendaJice at the 
A. V. of I., convention In Texas. Coun- 
climan Watson previously explained 
tha.l he could not attend. Counellnien 
Ttrlckley and Donoghuc, who were In 
the mayor's office early hi the after- 
noon, i/ald then that they hatl not yet 
decided whether to be present, but they. 
did nut appear In the council chambur.

Curley's attempt to test their au-

that not a quorum was present and 
the Mayor's declaration that such a 
session was illegal.

nroBocutlon of tUla 

• The protest against an increase of 
telephone rates was tmaninioiisly 
voiced by representatives of nearly 
half a hundred Mass.-ichiisctts cities 
and towns, Mayors, selectmen and 
city solicitors, at a nicetinR called 
by Mayor Ciirley at the Council 
Chamber, City Hall, yesterday noon, 
and without a single dissenting vote 
a resolution was adopted calling for 
a sweeping investigation of the New 
E^^.g'nnd Telephone and Telegraph 
Company and all its works, and cor- 
porate relation? with other com- 
panies of the Bell system. 

tertown, Marlboro, Hockport, Nor- 
wood, Stoughtoo, L*oinlnster and Mll- 

Mayor Curley, who. presided at the 
meeting, called attention to the fact, 
that the telephone company Jiad a. 
reserve of $40,000,000, saying: "I cppre- 
clato the power represented by such 
a reserve. It represents a nation- 1 
widtt organization. I realize the same 
raid on the public puree Is being made 

"In the face of the general belief 
that the compajiy has not established 
its case In the Increased rates de- 
manded for Boston, we are confronted I 
with the situation of an attempt by' 
hugo sums of money to drug the pub- 
lic mind.'' 

Criticises Advertising 

The Mayor severely crltUed the ad-] 
vertlslng campaign the company was 
conducting and charged that an at- 
tempt wag belns made to brlbs news- 1 
papers, holding up a morning nKfn- 
papeii fnot the Post), and polntlns to 
an editorial on the telephone situation 
and an advertisement from the com- 
pany on tho same page. ; 

He further charged that "the com*! 
pany believes that If the channels ot 
information can be prostituted, th* 
Public t'llllties Commission can be 
depended upon to be servile." 

E. Mark Sullivan, corporation coun-' 
sel, who Is conducting the fight on be- 
half of the city of Boston against th« 1 
telephone increase, said among other ; 
things: "The members of the Pu is 
rtllltles Commission are human. T y 
know their heads will be lopped off by 
these powerful public service corpora- 
tions unless they do the bidding of 
these Interests. In a case like this, 
with tho corporation against the Inter- 
ests of the people, the Public Utilities 
CoTnmlssIon, can hardly be expected to I 
do otherwise than as the creatures of 
their creators, the corporations, which 
dictate to the sovornor the appolntm*nt 
of members to tho Public Utilities Com- , 

Afraid of Corporations 

He further commented that "men em- 
piyoyed by the Public, Utilities Commis- 
sion become pale hearted when faced 
by couiu'el of the telephone company 
anil are afraid to state on tho stand 
what they have said to me privately.

for a few seconds the .ounellTnen np.Tln 
returned to their deliberations on tlie 
missive from the Iloidnn ('liy Hi'll. 
Mayor Cnrley. In hi.-, letter, i ,li\. at- 
tention to his heinf! appolntet. a com 
mittoe of one to have the towns and 
cities In the coinmonwr.illh whieh are 
opiwsed to the proposed new telephone 
rates act jointly iiKalnst the Inerease. 

The mayor asked that the Canibrldec 
eouneil vii'ss an order iipprovlng a bill 
iiovv before the LeKislature ealllne for 
an InvettlKatlon of tho telephone colii- 
iiativ by that body. 

JlaNor Curiey In his letter forth, r 
.stressed the necessity of pas.sliiK another 
measure or resolution iinplorlne the d. - 
partment of pnl'lli' iitllltleB not to net on 
the |)etltiovi <if the telephone com • -v

has investlirated. 

Mayor furley's lette- was disposed of

No employes of the city of Bos- 
ton will receive salary increases next 
year except the 3.500 workers whose 
pay is made larger automatically by 
operation of the sliding scale for 
liremen, policemen, teachers and a 
few others. About 75t)0 of tho 9200 
municipal employes to whom Mayor 
Curiey gave r '.ses this year will be 
disappointed if they expected any 
further boosts. 

In directing department heads yester- 
day to prepare their budget estimates 
on this basis, Mayor furley explained 
that the tendency t:i private employment 
is to reduce wagey, tha^ the raises ht» 
(iranted this year have x^laced a heavy 
burden on tlie city, and that public 
Wf h'are jueasMrep are costing: the city 
niu( h more this year than taut. 

He asked his exeoutivea to assume 
their share of the burden of the eltua- 
tion by InformlnK all applicants of tho 
condition of affalr.s. 

The mayor himeelf waa obllRed to tell 
the bad new.s to a proup of representa-

City Hall Believes 

Husband Will Oppose 


Tlie belief of the Good GovcrnmePt 
Assoeiatiin that Mr.i. James M. Curley 
Is a potential c.tildldate for mayor of 
Boston upon the retirement of the pres- 
eXCPUtive from office was not sh.ired 
by officials and employes seen at City 
Hnll today. 

Tt w,i,= the pcneral opinion ;hat .May- 
or I'urley would s Irongly op| his 
wife's rnterinn iiolltics as an active can- 
didate, de.Mdie the fact that she has 
bren on more than one occasion his 
"ripht-hand man." Tier services were 
particniar value in his nnmpalyn of 
when attempts were made to force 
ml of the three-cornered fight. A 
her to the voters oi 


towns for b\dldlni^ of road-i, hut that 
certain amo>ints to various cities and 
tione is turned over to Itoston. He 
would have Boston ^et her share and 
in addition civc to Boston authority to 
spend it in other w.iys than for roads. 

CENSUS takitm-g problem.; 

The money, according to the mayor's 
•icheme. would be used for traffic pur- 
poses, Included In which would be pro- 
vision for tile extra patrolmen desired 
by Commissioner Wilson. 

Jfa.vor Curley was anxious to have 
Ct'unmissioner "Wilson's dep.Hrtmcnt t.ako 
Ihe cen.sus next year. Chapter ITiS of the 
Acts of 1921 transfers from the slate to 
each city and town that decennial dtity. 
It is now the custom in Itoston for the 
police to list all persons aged 20 years ^':'P^ 
and over every .^prll 1 In conneetlor 
with preparation of the voting lists. It 
wa.s lliC ]na\or'.s idea to save consider- 
able time ai;d mone.v by bavinp: the po- 
lice do the census work at tlio sam< 
lime they undertake the lisling. 

t 'ommlssioiier Wilson proniise'l (o dis- 
cus.s tile question with his associate on 
the police listinR board. ICIectloii Om- 
nilssloner James K. Eagan. and then 
with William C Orundy, state director 
of the census. 

BudKet Commissioner Fox estimated 
that II would cost Bo.ston about $2,"., 000 
to take the census. The recording of 
each name costs at ,1 cents. It Is 



letter written by 

the city did much in swiiigins senti- 
ment toward Curley and in brluKlng 
about tile withdrawal of tlie late Joseph 
Be!ietin- from the contest.
