If, by some miracle, any of his Mayfair associates had met him, they would not have dreamt of recognizing- the immaculate, alert Dick Penhampton. He had no difficulty in finding the Margate Jetty, and after a moment of hesitation, ho pushed open the door -of the public bar and walked in. His first act was to glance furtively round the room, avoiding the eyes of the men assembled He then stepped up to the counter and in a husky voice asked for a double gin, slapping down a two- shilling piece with a defiant gesture. Pushing; aside the bottle of water which the bar-maid offered him, he picked up his change and carried his drink to a bench in the corner. Here he sat, sipping his gin and unobtrusively watching the custom- I ers who came in. He had a keen eye for character and they all seemed to him to be respectable working men. For the most party they stood or sat round the room, Singly or in groups, drinking their beer to trie accompaniment of harmless conversations in the purest cokney.

The men and the accumulation of articles in their rooms were taken to the police station where they are being investigated. Several of the articles taken by police have already been identified by owners as articles stolen recently. Fontl Medicine Case. A medicine case stolen from the · automobile of Dr. T. E.

Benham, the shipping clerk who turned financier, came homo today to face the hundreds of fellow townsmen who tiad invested their savings in his get-rich-quick scheme. He left Belvidere five days ago after proclaiming himself bankrupt. Ho refused to say whfcre he had been in the interim, nor would he discuss the single legal action brot in that time to recover the principal of three of the judgment notes Benham had given, paying 10 to 50 per cent interest. The grand jury, which began an investigation of his borrowing operations a fortnight ago, is sched tiled to meet again tomorrow. Asked whether he had retained a lawyer, Benham said: "Wha would I want with a lawyer?" The only court action begun was a civil suit of L,loyd La Sha, one o his depositors, to collect 57,250 on three notes for $14,370. No lega move was made to collect the in terest.

It would seem to us that the ques- ion involved is one of fairness to .he users of this transport, and when I tell you that the American arm Bureau Federation and the National Grange, along with ten rther national organizations havo drafted a manifesto in answer to the railroads, you will perhaps appreciate that more than mere AAA membership is involved in the struggle. I am enclosing herewith a copy of this manifesto, which should have a great appeal to ;an agricultural community like Iowa. ts it your viewpoint that the facts regards taxes on buses were un- Tairly stated in the chart and the release to which you referred? We do not contend that the point of view of the passenger car owner s at all times synonymous with :hat of the bus and truck operator; We do feel, however, that at the present moment the railroads have nade an issue as between railroad transportation and highway transportation which has compelled all motor vehicle interests to make common cause, in order to safeguard highway transport against the most determined attack ever launched on it. In your editorial, you referred to numerous instances in.; which- the American Automobile Association has gotten off "on the wrong foot." You only mentioned one instance, namely, that we have opposed the gasoline tax. We have never, at any time, opposed the gasoline tax. We have contended at all times that the tax is not only a useful one, but a fair one. We have, however, declared and we continue to declare, that this tax, which is, in effect, a privilege tax for the use of the road, should be applied to road purposes, We have contended that its rate should be governed by road needs and that this is something which must be determined by the people in the various states, since they alone are competent to pass on their needs. We have said that to use this tax specially levied on motor vehicle owners for public schools, for sea walls, for charitable institutions for fish hatcheries, for water supplies, for the retirement of old railroad bonded indebtedness incurrei by states,'is not only a flagrant discrimination, but amounts to species of confiscation and endangers the revenue on which our f u t u r e road building must depend to a very large extent. Since you are sincerely interested in road building", don't you agree with us that these road funds shouU be protected from abuse? At the present moment, there are a hundred bills pending in forty-four legislatures providing for the diversion of gasoline taxes, and, of course, we are opposing this as a matter of sound public policy. I am not going to ask you what the other instances were on which the American Automobile Association got away on the wrong font You nre a busy editor. Nor am I going to ask you to pay any attention whatever to this communication, my one hope being that it may perhaps help you to a fairer appraisal in your next editorial. If we can ever be of any service to you, please call on us. With best wirhes, Yours very truly, A. J. MONTGOMERY Publicity Director E. AV. Stryker, Council Bluffs, agency organizer of the Guaranty ~ ife Insurance compnny with headquarters nt Davenport, is spending his xveek with Agent John W. 3cery. PRICES AVERAGE 19 T0150 HIGHER Better Values Asked Altho Cattle Receipts Are Still Large. CHICAGO, Feb. 16. (^--Buying gained considerable momentum in the hog markets at the local stockyards early today." Eastern demand was brisk and local packers who did not participate in the distribution of 20,000 "liogs billed direct gave the market ready support at 10-15c higher prices. Strongweight lights at $7.80@7.S5 showed the full gain, while few heavy butchers or packing sows moved over the scales early. Extreme lightweights were held at $8.00 and above. Cattle receipts did not fall off enough to bring buyers into the market on the run. However, morn interest was displayed in steers of the in-between grades that proved such a poor attraction last week.

(.-P)--The bull campaign in stocks was aggressively-resumed .today. Bull leaders felt that the quiet reaction late last week had been sufficient to consolidate the swift ndvr.nce which preceded the Lin- oolrt's birt'-iUay holiday r.-vl while 'op2rat ; oi;s for the aclvn"-? were somewhat more restrained than a week ago they were vigorous enough to push several issues farther into new high grounds for 1031. Fresh fireworks were let loose in Auburn, which shot up nearly 20 points to level close to double its January minimum. Case and International business machines surged up 8 points, and issues gaining 3 or more, to record new highs for the movement, included Westinghoupe Electric, 'Caterpillar Trnctor, T\ 7 e\v York Central, Loews, North American Safeway Stores, and American Waterworks. Such issues as TJ. S. Steel. Gonaral Electric, American Telephone, American Tobacco B; American and Foreign Power. American Pan, and International Telephone sold up 1\'~ to more than 2 points. · The market -still maintained its highly professional flavor, with, activity largely concentrated in issues which respond easily to bullish stimulation. Nevertheless, public participation has developed in Sufficient volume to encourage pool managers. The fact that several large market operators left for southern resorts over the weak-end failed to reflect any flagging of bullish enthusiasm. Credit was a little firmer. Call money renewed at I ' M per cent, but none was available in the outside market at a lower level, and loan calling was in fair volume. N K \ V YOItK STOCKS. NEW YOItK. i-Vli. 16.
