A New Transit Curtailment P (o-g ram me.

I Tie Commission announces the rev I on ' of Brooklyns trolley systems as, me - - of a series of shocks to the pu-lie. f - First came the tentative Transit Plan, which neither the strap-h.t aging nor the stockholding public hts yet been able to digest. Then tame the Report on Valuations, requfring - and accompanied by voluminou I ex- - planations. On top of that was, the t so-called five-cent fare legislation, which opponents of the Comm ission are busy discounting as miB ning. , anything but a five cent fare. And now the trolley re-routing. . None of these ambitious pr ijects has yet found its way to evo 1 the preliminaries of authorization. ' Transit regulatory boards are cfphem-tml, temporary things; stre t car tracks usually stay put that 4s most likely to le tlje popular reai J ion to the newest upheaval on papete of the peoples modes of transport a tion. The Commission discount,, traction company opposition tty the statement that the companies already have re-routed and abs ndoned o many miles of lines. I But that was done over he protests of the riders and de; Jiite the presence of a Commission rm, trusted with looking out for the int o rest of the fare-payers. ' Where, for instance, liarf anyone seen any public demand for the abandonment of the St. Jolt ns place line? Once among the most congested of surface routes it Brooklyn, it has in the past few y ars been - paralleled by the Interborc, jgh subway under Eastern Parkway. But that subway, which has folrr tracks r.nd has never used more thi in two, is daily and nightly crowditd to the point of physical danger t i its patrons. The nearby trolley, line has teen cut to one-third its j Id rolling atrength. Yet it could not have b(tt -n so curtailed had the Commiasicgi used its power to forbid. . And th. dear old one- nan, one-ear, four-wheeled Monts fue street line, once the keystone oij the whole Brooklyn trolley system, nnd still the only means of tranf.t between Borough Hall and this Heights waterfront.

It is thnugl-'J V m-sara that all the ether W , shinytoa Conference creased Republican majority was returned the next year. And with the richest and most populous State in the Union voting against the John D. Rockefeller amendment, it might, and many believed, would have failed of passage in enough Legislatures to prevent its enactment 1 Anderson's job might he the price of his failure. At any rate he quickly made a deal with Charles S. Whitman, then Governor. The latter agreed to an-munce ostentatiously he would veto any resolution passed by the Legislature providing for a referendum. Andersons job was to secure the Prohibition gubernatorial nomination for Whitman The latter, through manipulating the same State machinery the chairman of the Republican State Committee, who is still its chairman, was then a paid clerk in the' Capitol now controlled by the financial backers of Governor Miller, had made sure of the Republican nomination for a third time. Whitman had bolted the Republican ticket in this city. His purpose was to secure the Moncybund support for bis re-election as Governor and the cash to finance his Presidential campaign in 1520. But in his desire to serve the Moneybund, Whitman had angered many Republicans and placed Tammany in control of the government of this city. It was to offset the Republican defection caused by his bolting the Republican ticket that Anderson was to secure him the Prohibition nomination for Governor. There was a difficulty. The Prohibitionists had their own candidate for Governor. In addition it was notorious all over the State that Charles S. Whitman was far from being a personal Prohibitionist. But by way familiar to boss politics and stipendiaries of John D., Anderson succeeded in beating the regular Prohibition candidate for Governor in the Prohibition primary and giving the nomination to Whitman. A contemptible trick 1 Yes, indeed, and it roused the anger of honest Prohibitionists. The schemers figured it was a Republican year, that if Whitman carried this State three times, he would be unbeatable aa tbe Republican candidate for President in 1920 and that Boss Anderson, who got a bad black eye whea New York failed to ratify the Eighteenth Amendment ha waa paid to put ovar whila Its vote was accessary, would have th credit of practically naming th Republican candidate for President A ted awakening nwnited th bosa and bis candidate. Whitman was the only bona fida candidate on th Republican ticket beaten at th polls. Th other Republican candidates on th State tirket got great majorities. Boat Anderson was more lucky in th next deal in which he displayed treechery to th regular Prohibition candidate.

Albany Ceun'y chile-emu of the Prohibition party, dares and in the Andover theological faculty had qualified him for his duties, to which he came through a barrage of policies, politics and misfits which would have baffled any less ctful, straightforward and clear-hinking man. Possessing all these qualities in liberal measure and effective, well balanced combination, projected upon a background of rare common sense and keen sympathy with human, and particularly undergraduate, nature, President Harris brought Amherst back to its course and its traditions and held its rudder true, as every one of its classes now coming actively into affairs of life demonstrate. Harris, if one may write from the intimate friend ship of three score years, was of all men true and sincere, fair, open and just in thought and in action, with no trace of pose, affectation, or strenu-osity. Not an outstanding leader in college nor in after life, but always well up to the front, a diligent, honest worker, cordial and generous, he was of those who attach friends with hooks of steel, and the younger men who cams under his charge found him ever sympathetic and appreciative, an influence which guided and aided rather than an authority which tompelied or crushed. Dr. Harris voluntary retirement from the presidency, long before anyone intimated that it was due, was but another example of his inherent sense of the fitness of things, acceptance of conditions and the future, and his loyal support of his successor one of the most creditable and characteristic Incidents of his long career at Amherst.

We are going to scrap a lot of our battleships, and lack of money to buy coal may keep those that remain off the sea. However, we have the consolation of knowing that we still have the ocean on which to sail ships whenever we decide to do so. An ocean Is a great advantage to a' navy, as has been proved time and time again. A navy without an ocean would be a far more serious proposition than an ocean without a navy, for we can always build ships but nothing coubl replace the ocean if anything serious should happen to It and cause it to become dry with out a Volstead act. Trotzkys Red Army Is being fed nnd Is growing fat on food sent to the starving women and children of Russia from America. We are easy marks arent we? CHANGE OF VIEW. What do you think of the Bonus Bill? Its an outrage on taxpayers. But it may cause an amendment to the prohibition law to permit light wines and beer to raise revenue to pay it. Ah!

Brings Action Against Endowment Association to Accept Him as Civilian Member. INSURANCE LAW INVOLVED. Decision May AffecL Firemen and Policemen. Edtvard Farrell, through hie attorney. James E. Smyth, of S3 Court street, made application yesterday afternoon before Justice Nathan Bijur In the Supreme Court, Manhattan, to compel the National Civil Service En. dowment Association, an Insurance fraternal society, with headquarters at 515 Grand street, this borough, to reinstate him aa a member of that organisation. ' The case lias been In the courts be fore, and is Interesting In that It Involves a question of Insurance law as relating to the policemen and firemen, who make up the larger membership in the association. Farrell was accepted as a civilian member of the society some years ago and in 1919 a question arose as to the legality of standing of such It's a perfect day for shoe dealer. the rubber LIGHT SNOWflLL FIILS TO Hill CITY TIFIC But Street Cleaning Department and Railway Officials Were Ready for Big Job. civilian members In that such members were not members of either the Police or Fire departments. At that time the civilian members ot the association were In control of the organization, according to Attor- Smyth and Edwin C. Morsch, of 1028 Gates avenue, who appeared for the society. The latter two both agreed that at that time these civilian members decided that Mil of the civilian members drop out of the organization. Including the officers themselves, and bo paid their full amount of Insurance in the organiza' tion under each such members respective policy. Thereupon the police, men and firemen got into control, the attorneys stated, and rescinded the resolution adopted by the civilian officers and board of directors. They decided that these payments should not amount to more than the resigned members had paid into the organize' tion. In May, 1919, following this decision of the policemen and firemen members, Farrell brought suit for $400. which he claimed was due him under his policy. The case was tried before Judge Estabrook In the Municipal Court of this borough, who decided In favor of the association. Farrell appealed the case before the Appellate Term of the Supreme Court, which reversed the decision of Justice Estabrook. Th$ association appealed from the latter deciston to the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court, which again reversed the decision of the Appellate Term and sustained tho decision of Judge Estabrook. Attorney Morsch objected to tbe reinstatement of Farrell on the ground that the association never had any legal right to have accepted him as a member, as he was not a policeman or fireman or a civil service employe. Justice 6ljur reserved decision as to whether tbe case should come to trio and accepted briefs from both sides. tent? Many of the themes are absolutely Lana) c d child lain Kape dally in tnat first, fearfully ion? and tiresome movement Here the secondary themes are merely fragmentary motives, with no development, but, instead, a sequence of figures kept together by an overwhelming march rhythm. Choreography, not symphony. In fact, the entire work, mor or less ao. wouid seem to be an exterior description adopted for choreographic purposes, everything converging into dance or march movements. All kinds of known themes, from those of Vienneao--atyla to others of Wagnerian flavor, ar mixed up in Mahler's melting pot. Heal inspiration is never felt in tho process. Cold, dry and long are 'the sectnd, third and fourth movements, but in the fifth the choruses are used with effect. There is some resemblance to Elgar's oratoria style, and very interesting Is the alternating dialogue between solo contralto anj chorus. Inspiration lurks, at last, in the sixth and final movement, an adagio recalling that of Beethovens second symphony, and which in its uncoiling of lengthy development also recalls passages from ''Parsifal." A big "grandloso" at tbe end reaches a beautiful sonority, but no originality. Noble efforts, those of the composer, gpne astray. The performance, under Mr. Men-glebergs superior manner of conducting, left nothing to be desired in the bringing out of tha virtues of the gigantic score, such as they were. INCOME M QUERIES.

First New York Hearing of Mahlers Third Symphony In an interview, William Mangel-berg, guest conductor of the Phil-harmonlc National Symphony Orchestra, recently went on record with the enthusiastic declaration (made more fully emphatic by the striking of fists upon the table) that the late Gustav Mahler in his estimation was unquestionably tlie greatest symphonist since Beethoven. New York critics and music folks lamented Mr. Mangel-berg, will yet be brought to a realization of tho super-greatness of Mahler etc., etc. This earnest belief of the famous Dutch conductor mokes for Interest and naturally Invites critical discussion, particularly as his opinion vaults over Brahma Tho Mahlor symphonies (there are nice) quantitatively outstrip those of Beethoven, not In number, but because of their inordinate length. Qualitatively, however, there Is no comparison. Gustave Mahler, despite the seriousness of his aspirations and pretensions, was nothing if not an unoriginal composer. Eugene Simpson. in a critical .essay, very accurately points out that Mahler was a veritable styllstlo omnibus "enabled to carry Influences not alone of Bruckner (hit teacher) but of all the tvorld'e other Important music dialectic soutce not even scorning those of the older Italian opera" Last season Mr. Mengelberg afforded New York audiences the opportunity of hearing Mahlers first and fourth symphonies, and on Tuesday evening.
