P. Subcommittee Plan Eg mm Swm I I held at the City Hospital for X-ray The struggle between Mayor Lawrence F. Qulgley and Joseph A. Tyrell, running for the Mayoralty in Chelsea, Is continuing with great bltternesj today. This morning 20 men who were arrested al suspicious persons by patrolmen Thomas Qulgley, brother of the Mayor, and Arthur Blake, friend of the Mayor, In the early morning hours, were released by Judge Albert D.

Bosson In Chelsea District Court. Judge Bosson scored the action of the police officers In arresting the men. "This is a disgraceful proceeding." he said, "and It looks to me like a deliber. ate attempt to interfere with the election. If any these men desire to swear out a warrant against the police officer or officers for assault with a revolver I will entertain the complaint." DR DAVID HTAKR JORDAN, The president emeritus of Leland Stanford University, has been awarded the prize offered by Raphael Herman, manufacturer, for the best plan calculated to maintain world peace.

Two men and a woman were injured this morning when a gale ripped out the supports of a big wooden and metai nign on top of the Manhattan (Market at Centra! sq. Cambridge, and hurled it to the sidewalk. The big plate-glass window of the market was smashed. The sign is 20 feet long. The corner of it struck Mrs Bridget Cox of Tine st, Cambridge, in the back, Mrs Cox escaped serious consequences.

The sign tore her coat off her body, but aside from the shaking up and fright ensuing from the accident, she is apparently little hurt. An auto took her to her home. John Andeson. 144 Harvard st, Cambridge, received bruises and is The number of wards in Boston will be reduced from 25 to 22, and Democratic Boston stands to lose six seats in the House of Representatives, if the tentative redraft of the ward lines of the city, made up by a subcommittee of three Republican members of the special Legislative dedristicting committee. Is adopted when the subcommittee presems the redraft to fche commission at its meeting tonight at City Hall.

From sources that cannot be disclosed, the character of the redraft was learned this afternoon. Some startling surprises for the local Democrats are contained in it. Appointed by a Republi ney) has three members, and Ward 7 (Innes), are individual wards with three seats apiece, under the existing arrangement. Each of the prospective new 22 wards will have two Representatives apiece and the balance of Democratic strength will be weakened by the loss of six seats, while the Republican power will be increased by that number under the projected new dispensation. As the Democrats will lose power in the House, they will lose It also in the new City Council, which will be made up of 22 members.

The act creating this commission empowers It to create any number of wards up to 36, and the gen examination. William Burns of North Cambridge went to the City Hospital to see hin family physician there for treatment and then departed. There were many people in the vicinity at the time of the accident and It i.s believed remarkable that more were not caught in the path of the falling signboard. The sign, was attached to the roof of the Manhattan Market by two braces. The high wind this morning simply dragged them out and sent the mass of metal and wood hurtling to the ground.

Today 1925 they were forwarded by the Public Util- Christmas Club' The commission's report must be filed with the city clerk, and, strangely, one of the tentative plan's most startling a4s Is to wipe Mr Donovan out of business as a political factor, since It even divides the ward he has always dominated, at present Ward 6 (South End), about equally between the Lomasney bailiwick and Ward 12, th old Curley ward in Roxbury.

When patrolman Qulgley appeared Judge Bosson severely censured him for his action, saying that It was unfortunate he had assumed surfh a position considering his relationship to the Mayor. The policeman had no. evidence against the men, other than saying he thought they were repeaters brought in from outside the city. The polls had not opened at the time of the arrests.

The commission, together with the Boston Transit Board, was directed by the Legislature to consider the disposition of the elevated structures on Cambridge st in view of the proposed widening of that thoroughfare. The joint report refers to that proposition and the new station at Cambridge and Charles sts and says: "The incline in Cambridge could bo removed, the East Boston Tunnel extending under Cambridge st to Charles st and a station built. there, affording transfer to the proposed Charles-st station of the Cambridge Subway-Dorchester Tunnel line, thereby permitting passengers at this point to transfer to and from the East Boston Tunnel and all points intersecting the Cambridge-Dorchester high-speed lines. "Thus persons using either the East Boston Tunnel or the Cambridge Subway could change cars at Charles st, instead of transferring at Scollay sq atid Park st, the most congested parts of the whole system, and traveling in the Tre-mont-st Subway between these points, as they must now do, unless they prefer to do this via the Washlngton-st Subway at very congested points. This would have a distinct tendency to remove this congestion and would therefore be a highly desirable end In Itself." The commission estimates the cost at $2,500,000.
