Eighty - nine first class railroads asked the Interstate Commerce Commission today to modify Its order for installation of automatic train control devices.

IRISHMEN HONOR MEMORTOF EMMET John Mitchel Club Observes Anniversary of Birth With Banquet BLEWITT IS TOASTMASTER ALIENS' RIGHTS IN MEXIXCO CURTAILED Supreme Court Decides That Foreign Ministry May Refuse , to Sanction Titles AFFECTS OUTSIDE CAPITAL Constitution Authorizes State to Make Decisions Regarding Investments Land and water rights in Mexico df foreigners are vitally affected by a recent supreme court decision Interpreting the famous Article 27 of the Mexi can Constitution of 1917, which played an important part In last summer's pre - recognltlon conference. The dlcislon, although it does not touch upon that part of Article 2T which nationalizes sub - soil petroleum righte, sets forth, broadly speaking,, the principle that although foreigners may comply fully with the provisions of the law affecting the acquisition of ,i lsnd and water rights In Mexico, it Is within the power of the ministry of foreign relations to refuse to sanction 'heir titles if such refusal is deemed ;o the national interest. It also places upon that ministry the immense responsibility of regulating In the interests of the republic the devel opment by foreign capital of the im mense sources of national wealth com ; inised within the term land and water rights, and 1 a measure regulating the Investment of foreign capital in i Mexico. j The courts finding, regarded as i being of superlative Importance to for eign interests in Mexico, especially since it is accepted as a possible indi cation of the bench s attitude toward foreign oil rights, came as a result of an appeal by the Bacis Gold and Sil ver Mining Co., . Ltd., of Durango, against acts of the ministry of foreign relations alleged to be in violation of Articles 14 and 27, Fraction 1, of the constitution. . The Company's Case, The company declared that in 1896 while the Bacis river was under the Jurisdiction of the Durango state gov ernment, it secured a concession to use the waters' of the river in operating a power plant, and when the Bacis passed under federal Jurisdiction it complied with all legal requirements to have the concession approved by the federal government. These Included the waiving of the company's right to appeal to the United States government for protection of Its in terests and an agreement to consider Itself a Mexican corporation Insofar as the water power concession was concerned. "When the foreign office refused to sanction the concession, appeal was had to the Supreme Court. The court held In effect, that: Foreigner's Bights Restricted. Mexican citizens, by birth or natur - alization, lhave the "right" to acquire land and water rights; but foreigners, under the court's interpretation of the state of mind which dominated the con stituent assembly in framing Article 27, have not this "right," even though they comply with 'every legal requirement. since the article authorizes the state, through the foreign office, to decide whether it is to the public Interest to sanction such land and water rights as may be petitioned by foreigners and to sanction such rights, not because; of sny mandatory feature of the article, but as a "faculty, act of favor or grace."

Brennan and Mrs. Thom as Murphy Deliver Principal Addresses Deeds of Robert Emmet, the Irish pa triot and martyr, and the achievements of his countrymen in their own land and in other nations of the earth, were extolled last aright at the banquet of the John Mitchell Club, In observance of the 146th anniversary of Emmet's birth. The affair was held at the Elks' club house, with nearly 100 in attendance. Honoring the memory of the young hero who gave his life that the prin ciples for which he fought might obtain, the Irish - Americans making ur the Membership of the Mitchell club pledged anew their support to Ireland in her efforts to achieve the independence for which he strove. In paying homage to Emmet and his fellow - martyrs, the banqueters also heard too oharacterot Irish ;vmanhood lauded, and the accomplishments of women of Irish birth and descent through centuries were tellingly cited. Bis witt Toastmaster Hon. Edward F. Blewitt acted as toastmaster, having been introduced by William Dawson, president of the John Mitoliel club and a prominent figure in the Clan - na - Gael here. Mr. Dawson referred to the purposes of the organ! zation, pointing out that it is not a religious body, but an association of men who claim either Irish blood or Irish ancestors. Mr. Blewitt, In prefacing his re marks, declared that while honoring the memory of a great Irishman, "we are here tonight neither to laugh nor to cry, but to givo expression to out reverence for the memory of a beautiful character, one of the Irishmen we are always proud to mention. Mis life and his deeds and his character have added much to the glory of Ireland." Vincent A. Brennan, responding to the toast. "Emmet the Patriot," brought his audience to a high pltcn of enthusiasm by an eloquent por trayal of the qualities of the man, his sacrifices and his efforts for the fur therance of his country's welfare. Emmet died as thousands upon thousands of other Irishmen have died; died because he believed that the principles of truth, and justice, and human liberty should prevail a true martyr to the cause Which he so ardently supported. He represented the finest type of Irish manhood, endowed with a physique that was perfection; endowed with an intellect that was mighty, and possessed of courage with whioh that of the Spartan soldier can be compared, he died as ho had lived. for the cause of his native land, Emmet's Dying1 Statement Mr. Brennan cited Emmet's dying statement, that "when my country takes her place among the nations of Jhe world then, and not until then. shall my epitaph be written," as a reflection of the character of the man "There Is need, there Is urgent need today for men of his type, in every nation of the earth; while men high in the world of finance are endeavoring to carry out their alms, while statesmen are Involved in great situations. the world needs men like Robert Em met. His life was based on the founda tion on which Irish character rests love of God. love of home, love of country. Without love of God, what nation can hope to long endure? The Irishman's love of home life, his re - SDect for the sanctity of the marri age contract, stands out today, when we see the great menace of the divorce evil, disrupting the very unit of society the home." He appealed for a renewed applica tion of the doctrines on whlcn 'fc,mmei based his life and his career, as a means of preserving the nome and the whole structure of civilization. THrs.

"No celebration in honor of Robert Emmet would bo complete without a reference to Sarah Curran, the beloved of Emmet, she said. Her memory is enshrined, weeping for him in the shadow of the scaftold ana ay - ine of heart - break in a far - off land. Nor must we forget Anne Devlin, Era met's faithful servant, helping in his preparation for insurrection, aiding his flight, shielding him in hiding, refus ing even when tortured to comprom ise her '.Master Robert' " She referred to the fact that women have taken their places In public life, in professional life, in the fields of art and literature, and in every sphere in which woman's activity has played a part. Rev. Dr. George J. Lucas, in a brier address, praised the present govern ment in Ireland today, while the Rev. Dr. J. J. B. Feeley, of South Scranton, also expressed himself as being in "favor of giving the Free - State every chance to demonstrate to, the world that Ireland can rule herself." The Rev. M. F.

There Is one thing, however, that we may win and that is the acknowledgement of all interestea mat the 1924 Olympic Games were the best organized since their revival. This we will try to do.

The are outclassed in speed skating and only hold out the hope of getting points in the figure skating where Mademoiselle ivonne courjcun, Incidentally is one of France's upper ten rackets in women's tennis, has more than an even chance of winning.

Stool Wo Show In association football every one admitted that France stood no show. England stands alone In this sport and the French team has been regularly defeated by the Belgians and Czechs, while the teams representing Italy, the Scandinavian countries and Spain have won more matches from France than they have lost to them in the international clashes of the past few years.
