F.xecutors of the ertate of the late George .1. Gould today were ordered brought into 'the courts of New York State as defendants in the $200,000,000 suit ot stockholders of the Denver Rio Grande Railroad against the former directors of the road. A motion to this effect was decided in favor of the stockholders by .Supreme Court Justice Guy Mr. Gould, who died in May. 1923. was a resident of New Jersey. Attorneys for the Gould interests have announced they would appeal the derision to the Vnited f-'tates Sup-nie Court, if necessary, on the ground that to bring the executors into this State to defend a suit would be to deprive them of their property without due process of law. Kingdon Gould, son ot the late railroad magnate, and Schuyler Neilson Rlee. his farmer secretary, are the executors.

What I would like to know is, can a rierson be prevented from mov ing if they owe back rent, and what can the landlord do? The house is not fit to live in. It has two feet of water In the cellar. (Signed) W. W. SANDERS. Answer: A person could be prevented from moving if rent was owed. The landlord could levy a distress warrant, but a married person is entitled to a property exemption of 200, which would be determined by appraisers. If a property it untenantable, due to the neglect of the owner, however, that would be in the nature of a partial eviction and a tenant would probably be sustained in leaving it. A board of health would not countenance the occupancy of a house in the cellar of which there is two feet of water. Editor. New Homes Here Are Not Tax Exempt To the Editor of the Home News: Kindly let me know through your newspaper whether houses built in the city of New Brunswick during the past year are tax exempt and it so, for how long a time? Thanking you, I remain, Yours truly, M. F. Answer: Houses built in New-Brunswick in the past year are not tax exempt, the New Jersey tax exemption law having been held unconstitutional. In New York a similar Btatute was sustained by the Appelate Division on the ground that it was enacted to meet a war-time emergency. A lower court held that it was class legislation and had declared the measure unconstitutional. Ivocal builders and contractors called a meeting about a year ago for the purpose of urging the re-actment of a tax exemption measure or to carry the fight for the measure to a higher court, but the meeting was never held, as so few reported. It was proposed to enlist the builders and contractors of the rest Of the State and wage a campaign for the promotion of residential building. Editor. Lincoln Gardens And Tax Matters The following questions have been propounded to the Home News in regard to the assessment of taxes on properties at Lincoln Gardens: Q. "A" has a chance .to buy a house in Ioncoln Gardens and "B" tells him not to buy, as, he will have to pay the back taxes. Who is right? Ans. The matter of the assessment and collection of taxes is pending in the United States District Court. Should the court decide in favor of the city, the taxes will be collectible from the "owner at the time the decision is given unless the present owner has entered into an agreement with the purchaser, as to the payment of taxes. The taxes assessed by the city serve as a lien against all properties located in Lincoln Gardens. y. "A" says he will only have to pay back taxes from the time that he purchases said house while "B" claims that he will have to pay all the back taxes from the time the Lincoln Garden houses were built? Ans. The city believes that it has the right to assess and collect taxes on all houses located at the Lincoln Gardens. Until the court decides otherwise, the city will hold the taxes assessed against these houses as a lien. It would seem that if "A" did not make an agreement with "B" as to the payment of taxes at the time of the purchase, he would be liable to the city for the payment of the taxes from the time the particular house In question was built and the assessment imposed by the city. Q. "A" and "P." would like to know if New Brunswick has any chances of getting back taxes? Ans. We bsv.? no clairvoyants on the Home Nws staff and consequently cannot answer question No. 3. Lincoln a Hessian? Asks Correspondent To the Editor of the Home News: Abraham Lincoln received forty acres of land from the United Slates Government in 1S50 as a "bonus" for his services in the Black Hawk Indian War. ami in $C5 he applied for 12" acres more. Was Abraham Lincoln a Hey.slan or a "treasury looter." or did his act rob him of any ot his patriotism? It was aftr he received this "bonus" that be became the outstanding American of all time. ' Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E Lee must have been 'treasury raider;." They. too. must have "set a price upon their patriotism." for they received outright gifts of land for their rrviee3 in the Mexican War. while the "treasury raider" of today is asking oply for assistance in purchasing land. But, so far u-3 history records, the receipt of the "bonus" did not affect the capacity or the willingness of either one to sarritlce when the Civil War broke out. General Phil Sheridan, General Wlnfleld Scott and Admiral Far-ragut are other illustrious Americans who must be classed with the "bonui grabbers." if the veterans of the World War are to be placed in that category. But the veterans are not asking for a "bonus." Neither are they attempting to extort money from the Government by force, as was the case with workmen and contractors who threatened to quit necessary Government work while the war was on unless they got more money than they had bn promised. The veterans of th9 World War are presenting to the American people a .lust claivr. and are simply asking for a decision as to its justice. JACOB S. LAUL. i Metuclicn, N. J . A hold-over is a technical name for something we keep simply because - we don't know bow to get rid of it. The " Vermiform Appendix is a Hold-Over. Somewhere in the progress of Evolution it ceased functioning. Now all it does is to get sore. We have no use for it, indeed it offends and threatens our life, mars our happiness and destroys our efficiency. But wc don't know how to let go. ' And yet Hold-Overs, arc an incident to growth. They mean that the ideas of one generation, although withered and worn out, are lapping over the ideas of the new. Thus it becomes a delicate- rid of them, for we cannot loose past without destroying the principle of grdwth. For instance, nations are a good thing. And they are also great enemies to progress, according to the law that the good .is the enemy of the best. Nations are good if we keep in mind that they are but incidents of progress. They are bad if we look upon them as eventualities. The one eventuality is mankind. ; In every man's secret mind his dream should be not to make the world Angloj-Saxon, but to make it human.. Just now nationalism is perniciously exerting itself to interfere with that necessity, for a normal and intelligent internationalism which is forcing itself upon us. Another Hold-Over is Spiritism. - Soothsaying, dream reading, table-rapping and all such things are reappearing. This is- one of the most ancient of characteristics. In former times sorcery, astrology and witchcraft were almost universally believed. Almanacs were published and greedily bought which abounded in absur prognostications. The greatest minds were not free from those superstitions that we now usually associate with weak-mindedness. And in one form or another this ancient mental dirt continues to be manifested in our thought. Alcohol is another Hold-Over. For centuries the childish mind of the world was steeped in the delusion that the ecstasies of intoxication represented the fullness and beauty of life. Our -history, our poetry, our 'literature of the past, is steeped in alcohol. It is going to take a generation or two of breeding to get it out of'US. The world of industry is cursed with the Hold-Over of competition. Not normal and wholesome competition, but competition in terms of conflict. The ranks of producers still draw themselves up in battle array, the managers on one side and the workmen on the other, and imagine that there can be some good result from fighting each other. How long before we shall outgrow this infantile frenzy? Education is cursed with Hold-Over ideas. The children of democracy are still trained in schoolrooms that are little autocracies. Our universities still devote their chief efforts to turning out specialists in every department of life except in life itself. The two most important things for a child to learn are still classed as fads and luxuries. They are first, that he should learn soar, kind of work to do for which 'he world is willing to pay him money. The second is that he should learn how to govern himself and get along with his fellows. . The Romance of Small Business Hatching chickens is more attractive to II. V. Tormohlcn, of Port land, Indiana, than practicing law. lie has long been working out his plan to abandon the legal profession and devote himself wholly to poultry and though he still does some law work to create larger capital, he has an extensive poultry establishment. Mr. Tormohlen was born in Indiana 37 years ago, and graduated from law school in 1910, the same year he located in Portland. "My father .was a poorly-paid minister," he says. "I raised chickens on the back lot to help finance my law course. I also conductedjthe poultry department in an Indianapolis newspaper, and altogether edimed my w hole expense in college. . - '. To raise chickens you need not livfe in a log cabin as your grandfather did," adds Mr. Tormohlen, "nor must you begin with common layers and spend years building up an egg strain. You- do-not h?.ve io spend hundreds f dollars in getting a start, but Vith the investment of small capital you can' in a few months have a fine flock a business Which with careful management will grow and develop from the smallest beginning as mine has done. "After my brown leghorns had helped take me through college, Mrs. Tormohlen and I started out in life with our precious strain of winter-laying leghorns as our principal asset. We began in a little rented cottage with a big back yard, and went at it in earnest to develop the highest quality out of our strain. Every nail in every chicken house t drove myself. I dug ever- post-hole. "Today my plae''. which I call Everlay Farm, is the biggest exclusive brown I'gljorn St:rm in the world I believe. We ship baby chicks to considerable distances and our eggs go to every part of the count y and iy foreign lunds. "In addition to niy home plant I have arrangements with several farmers where hundreds of chickens are raised each year under my upervMon. We are constantly addifig to our acreage and buildings. "The entrance to our farm lierj only six blocks from the center of th-; city. When r. e transferred our establishment from our town lot we studied the xpri'-nc:s of other concerns and tried to overcome their regrets. . 1 "W h'-n I h'nan to build up my family of brown leghorns I had an ambition to make them lay a good many more eggs in a year. But I never dreamed it pop.-iible to develop "hens in such, a remarkable way. We have a record of one hen who. produced 324 eggs in 36.ri days. Government Elaiti-s thov.- that the average hen lays from 60 to SO eggs during the year. A fioclc average ot 100 or more eggs was once con-tidered marvelou". "Our firnt o'fr'6 rales were S'OOi-r-our present annual sales run between $40,000 and $5n,0ftfi." Tomorrow I'red Ii. I,p Vine anil Harry TV Black, of Jetroit. Mich. WOODROW WILSON AND BIBLE Thosi who have been confuted and perhaps disheartened by reason of , prevailing religious controversies 'may well take oourag" after reading what the late President Woodrow AVil.Totl had to say about Holy AVrlt. Mr. Wilson, addressing an audience in Trenton in February, 1S13, declared : "The opinion of the Bible bred in me. not only by the teaching of my home when 1 was a boy, but also every turn and experience of my life and every step of study, is that it Is the one supreme source of revelation, the revelation of the meaning of life, the nature of God and the spiritual nature and heed of men. It is the only guide of life which really leads the spirit in the way of peace and salvation If men could but be made tu know-it intimately, and for what It really W A TCHE S AND- EDWIN E. DAWSON 111 Church Street, New Brunswick, N. J. problem tO' get entirely from the Dlt.FRAXK CRAJiE is, we should have secured both individual and social regeneration." In these few words there is a whole sermon of information, admonition and inspiration. Fathers and mothers should note the religious home training of the great President. It doubtless had much to do with his service, and success j in after life. Every one may profit j by accepting, a Mr. Wilson ac-Icepted, 'the teaching of each turn and experience in daily affairs. And i 'or all there must be a mightv uplift in the declaration of this man of mighty intellect and unbounded research that "every step of study" convinced him that the Bible is "the one supreme source of revelation." Much of the President's great strength of character and of his unselfish service for others came from his practice of reading the Word daily. Trenton Times.

Viehmann Estate Briefs to Be Filed August C. Streitwolf of 'this city and Russell Fleming of the firm of Fleming &' Handford of Newark appeared before Chancellor Edwin R. Walker at, Trenton yesterday at a hearing in chambers on the application of Mrs. Margaret A, Viehmann to dispose of a portion of her trust fund of approximately $45,000 because the incomes from trust funds of $50,000 of her son and daughter were inadequate for their maintenance. The hearing was entirely informal ,the chancellor requesting that briefs be submitted. . Young Mr. Viehmann became of age yesterday and under the agreed interpretation of the . will of his father, the late George A. Viehmann. his trust fund of $50,000 reverts -to the Viehmann estate. Three-fourths of the income from the estate is now payable to Mrs. Viehmann and one-fourth to the son. No time was set for the filing of briefs on the application of Mrs. Viehmann to reduce the amount of her principal but they will be submitted in the course of the next few ' days. The decision of Chancellor Walker is expected to follow in due course the submission of briefs. Presiding Judge For Circuit Court Here Is Uncertain Middlesex county lawyers are wondering what judge Will preside over the next term of Circuit Court. Clerk Robert W. Macan says he has had twenty-four inquiries from members of the local bar on the subject and that he is absolutely without inside information on the subject. Mr. Macan said the Circuit Court judicial assignments are made by the Supreme Court. The Legislature, he said, has been trying for the last two years to arrange two new circuits aad a measure is now before that body. It has passed the Senate, but has not been acted upon by the Assembly, so far as Mr. Macan knows. Possibly Judge Theodore IL Schimpf, who has just been confirmed by the State Senate as the successor of Judge Frank T. Lloyd, will -succeed to the latter's circuit, Middlesex. Mercei, Camdert. anc Ocean counties. Judge Lloyd was scheduled to preside over the term of Circuit Court opening here a week from next Monday morning. Judge Lloyd is also down to' preside over the Mercer county Court opening at Trenton on March 10. Judge Schimpf has been an Atlantic City lawyer. He fills the unexpired term of Judge Lloyd, who has become a member of the Supreme Court. The unexpired term ends on January 20. 1928, and the salary of, the position is $1,000-a month.

REED 391 and 393 GtorSe Street Bare Rock Formation in New Brunswick Geologists say that red shale is comparatively rare in the earth's surface, which is an Interesting remark, inasmuch as New Brunswick is built solidly on a red shale formation. The red shale formation ia New Jersey begins above Paterson and extends in a southwesterly direction to the Delaware River; its. width varies from fifteen to twenty miles, and just south of New Brunswick we find the sand, clay and marl beds of New Jersey. Strangers coming through New Brunswick are usually surprised to , see the great amount of red shale here, while we seldom notice it. 6ne ot the best exhibitions of the type of red shale found here is on the other side of the Albany street bridge, where excavation preparatory to widening the brldga is taking place. The powerful steam shovel easily Tipped away the upper strata of shale, but when it went deeper the shale was found to be so hard that it was necessary to resort to blasting to dislodge it. John- Man-ley probably knows more about the rock formation of New Brunswick' than anyone else in -the city, and he can tell you lots of things about the subject that you probably never knew. John .

"Strip,' 'ordered the police surgeon. "Which, sor?" - ' , "Get your clothes off, and be quick ahout it," said the examiner. The Irishman undressed. The doctor measured his chest and pound cd his back. - "'Hop over this, rod," was the next command. ; The man did his best, landing on his back.

Y'ander-bilt, of Mercer, who served in the Legislature fifty years ago, has in his bill for a constitutional convention in this State tried to put forward a workable plan. Everyone knows that the obstacle to any revision of the organic law of New Jersey that so far has been insuperable is the fear of the small or thinly populated counties that now control the Senate that they might lose their djominance in the upper uranun . ul ine jjegiBiature, which now gives counties with combined population but little larger than Newark's an absolute veto power over all legislation at Trenton. Assemblyman Vanderbilt has tried to overcome this by pro viding in his bill that each county In tho constitutional convention which he would have convene on May 24, should have two delegates and only two, one of each party. He has also endeavored to avoid any complaint of expense by proposing that the delegates be elect ed on April 22 when the Presi dential primaries will be held and that each of them be paid but $100. It is far and away the most feasible scheme for a constitutional convention yet presented at Tren ton. Still it will not be accepted. Eor the politicians in control will not take any chances ofr that sort in a Presidential year. They cannot guess what" the public reaction would be to what the constitutional convention might do or who would be hit by it, and they are not going to test it. Furthermore, the prejudice of the small counties against changing the constitution or opening the door to changes that in some way might affect the Senate special privilege so dear to them is so intense and so deep that even the protection given against it in the Vanderbilt bill will hardly satisfy them.

Why this opposition from tin! source to the first two of these bills? . There is more than one answf' to this . question.
