JOHN D., JR., OWNS PLACE Wife and Daughter ,bf Occu pant, III of Pneumonia, Carried Away in Ambulances. . The C. K. G. Billings mansion known as Fort Tryon Hall and now- owned by John D. Rockefeller; Jr., near 190th St. and Fort JWashing-ton ave.. Manhattan, was destroyed by fire yesterday afternoon. The mansion stood on the site of old Fort Xottcn. Mrs. Cornelia Partos, wife of the lessee, Nicholas S. Partos, and their daughter, Irene, six years old, both are seriously ill of pneumonia, were carried out. Tho loss was estimated at $2,000,000. '. Just across Fort Washington ave. from Fort Tryon Hall Is the studio ofiGeorge Gray Baanard, the sculp tor, in what were formerly the elaborate stables of Mr. Billings. The stables, like Fort Tryon Hall, are the property ot Mr. Rockefeller. To the south, within about 600 feet, are the Cloisters, housing an almost priceless collection of media eval art works which John D. Rockefeller bought from Mr. Barnard and gave to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Llbby Hall, erected as a school hal fa century ago or more. Art Worth $1,000,000. .. The fire did not reach any of the other buildings. Fort Tryon Hall, which during Mr. Bltlfng's occupancy contained a remarkable collection of paintings as well as valuable statuary, tapestries and antique furniture, had been' used as a similar depositary by Its new occupant, pr. Partos, who made his fortune in the manufacture of a candy medicine and in real estate 'Operations. His art collection, he said, had been gathered in the four corners Of the earth and was valued at $1,000,000. The house . itself, built In Louis XIV style by Mr. Billings, with an Interior court two stories high, a marble swimming pool and a tower which gave an unexcelled view of the Hudson, the upper bay and Long Island Sound, is said tp have cost $2,000,600. Its value in the tnarlet was estimated, however, to be less than half the building cost. The fire was due, it is believed, to a defective flue. It was discovered about 3 o'clock in the afternoon by a boy who was passing. He stood foi; a moment in the $250,000 driveway, built by. Mr. . Billings because he preferred to approach his house from the river side instead of by way of Northern ave., watching smoke curl up from the roof of the southeast wing. l' It .was at least a $1,500,000 spiral of smoke, but the boy did not realize It until its. base became tinged with orange' and a bright flame sprang up. : Then he raced to the front door and almost astonished Dr. Partos' dignified negro butler, with his breathless announcement: "Say, mister, do you know your house is on fire?" - ' t ; , 1 The Negro had Confirmed the report by stepping out and glancing at the roof and had called Dr. Partos, when Patrolmen Shuhman and Hess, of the Wadsworth ave. police station, came running up with a similar announcement. , "You'd better get your family and what things you can out," advised Shuhman, scanning the frame and stucco construction of the rambling building. "We've turned In an alarm, but that fire's got a good start and the house may go up like a tinder box." - , Pr. Partos, who was standing on the driveway with them, watching the"mountlng flames, considered the question with deliberation which amazed the policemen. . 4 "I hesitate to Jiava my wife and child moved," herald at last. "They both are suffering from pneumonia and to move them might be a more serious Bhock than the fire itself. . (Continued on Pan Fonr.) Ice had been "burned."

Officials believe that with warmer weather and continued use of explosives, the gorge can be floated without flood danger to "either Franklin or Oil City which suffered $600,000 damage a woek ago: - i Dr. Barnes estimated it would take from $10,000 to $16,009 worth of material to float the gorge with tho next high- water.- , , 3 DWELLINGS BURNED IN ROCKAWAY SECTION Three Alarms Sounded to Protect Children's Homes. Three frame boarding houses, each of three stories, were badly damaged last night by two fires which occurred in Immediate succession In the Rockaways. Two of the buildings were located near the Boardwalk on Beach 114th at.. Far Rockaway. One of these was occupied by a family which escaped without difficulty; the. other was untenanted. Three alarms were sounded by Battalion Chief Lawrence, because of the proximity of St. Malachl's Orphans Home and the Hebrew Home for Crippled Children. The Institutions were" not endangered, however, as the wind carried the sparks away from them. A preceding fire occurred on Beach 64th St., Arevrne, in an unoccupied structure. The total damage was about $30,000. E ,S. Federal Trade Commission 1 Seeks Monopoly in $240,-000,000 Combine. Washington, March 6. The Federal Trade Commission tonight added another big merger to Its growing list of organizations under investigation as to possible monopoly features. The $240,000,000 consolidation of the Associated 611 Company and the Tidewater Oil Company Interests stirred Commission officials, and a preliminary Inquiry was started by Chief Examiner M. F. Hudson. - Hudson will ask officers of both companies for details of the re ported transactions leading up to the merger. If the answers indicate that . the Clayton Act is being violated so far as restriction of com- petition goes, the legal department of the Commission will act. "We will confine our Investigation to the features of the merger that may show a monopoly to exist which restricts competition,' 'said Hudson. "The financial dealings and the method of exchanging securities or offering them for sale do not come under, the Jurisdiction of the com mission." ' ,7 . The commission Investigators are especially interested in the announcement that the new company plans to acquire additional oil com. panies.

OTHERS GIVE THEIR VIEWS English' System of "Masters" for Routine Work Urged by ' Robert H. Elder. If each of the present Supreme Court Justices worked half an hour, extra a day it would mean a full extra judicial day, Supreme Court Justice James C. Cropsey declared yesterday. Justice Cropsey announced himself as unqualifiedly against the recommendation of the Brooklyn Bar Association that eight additional Judges are needed In this judicial district. "I am opposed to the movement for more Judges," Justice Cropsey said. "It would do no good fo add morejudges. It wou)d simply mean additional expense to the taxpayer In Manhattan, some years ago, they created several more justices to cope with the crowded calendar, and It has not helped a bit- If anything, the calendar is more crowded in Manhattan now than ever. If .each ot the nine Justice sitting in Brooklyn this month, for instance, worked half an hour more each day, it woul mean four and a half extra hours, a full Judicial day, which would go a long way toward clearing the calendar." Would Eliminate Routines In advocating the additional justices, a great deal has been said about the court calendar being In the worst condition ever known In Kings County. Justice Cropsey disagrees with this argument, saying: "I do not think the calendar is in worse condition than It was some (Continued en Fax Feur.) , Wife Wins $600, But Forfeits '$150 Monthly Under Decree Obtained in Yucatan. Through an odd legal quirk, Mrs. Lillian Blatt, of 1411 Carroll st, has lost her alimony of $150 a month, which her husband, Dr. Meyer H. Blatt, a physician, of 72 McKibbln St., was ordered to pay when she was granted a separation by Supreme Court Justice Benedict in October, 1924. 1 Mrs Blatt last August went to Merlda, Yucatan, and obtained a divorce. This, concededly. Is Invalid In this State, as Blatt was not served with the papers and did not submit to the jurisdiction of the Yucatan court. His attorney, Edmund J. Pickup, when he learned of Mrs. Blatt's Yucatan decree, moved before Justice Callaghan to strike out the alimony provision in Mrs. Blatt's separation deiree here, and the- motion was granted. - - Pickup contended that, although Mrs. Blatt's Yucatan decree is in valid here, she -Js estopped from raising this question, since she ob talned the decree herself and, there fore.

GHOST-LIKE THIEF Glides In, Holds Up Clerk, Gets Cash and Customers Fail to See Him. Last night, shortly before midnight, a quietly dressed man, middle aged and of mild expression, entered Irving Friedman's drug store at 212 Prospect Park West, and leaning over the counter showed Friedman a pistol. "Put your hands up." he whispered. There were two customers in the store looking up telephone numbers. In the rear was,the clerk, Jacob Rosenberg, of 1617 11th ave., who was compounding a prescription. But only Friedman and the bandit himself knew that there was a holdup in progress. The quietly dressed man took $150 from the cash register, while still on the customer side; of the counter, and then quietly left the store. "They wouldn't believe me at first I when I told them," Friedman said ' afterwards, indicating th cleric and customers. WARMER TODAY WITH RAIN March Living Up to "Rep" as Fickle Month.

RAIDS DRUG STORE Takes Wife to 'Craig's Wife,' 'Wretch,' She Cries, and Siies When after two years of estrange ment Leon Koppelman suggested to hts wife, Mrs. Sylvia Koppelman, 1744 East 15th at.; that she return to him, she consented, with certain stipulations. First of all, she said, he must win her, not with promises and other devices of husbands, but, rather with the tender attentions and courtesies he Was so capable of back in the days of you-know-when. In short, " she suggested, why not another courtship? . ' "Well," agreed . the husband, that's good here." Enthusiastically Koppelman en tered into .the second courtship. He would, he resolved, show his wife a good time. With which resolve, he procured two seats for a perfor mance of "Craig s Wife, a play highly regarsed and popular. And what a mistake that was! . - - As he sat with his wife watching the plav, Koppelman suddenly bo-' came consclous of a feeling that something was wrong somewhere, E I Four Murdered, 10 Shot, $424,- 500 Stolen, Chiefly in Brooklyn, Since January 9. ADMITS LIST STAGGERS Sees Danger in Encouraging Citizens to Resist Holdups Raps Bail System. .Police Commissioner George V. McLaughlin has figured out just one way to fight the crime wave which has marked his two months In office. His remedy, as he tersely outlined it to The Brooklyn Times yesterday, is: "&et more policemen." Only in office since Jan. 1, the new Commissioner has, nevertheless, seen a real "crime wave." He acknowledges Its existence. No petty crimes, these that greet ed the new Commissioner. The most daring of holdups, with accompanl ment of murder, gunplay, slugging and house-breaking these are some of the incidents In McLaughlin's baptism. And then, almost beneath recording with the major affairs, are the reports of pocket-pi-king, shop lifting, and other random offenses which automatically overflow onto the police blotter. Four Murdered, Ten Shot. Since January 9, the Brooklyn Times records that in the crimes chiefly affecting Brooklyn crooks have netted themselves approximately $424,500. During the collection of that fund they murdered four persons and wounded ten others, with guns or '' whatever other weapons expedited their safe get-away clubs, knives and even gas. Of this loot, $152,100 was cash. Few places escaped. Theatres, shoe-stores. Jewelry stores, delicatessens, groceries and homes were numbered among the repeated visits of the bandits. Jewelry stores, in addition to- giving up - whatever - cash . was .found in their vaults, yielded gems with a total value of $200,600. .Furriers wer next Id contributions. The total value of this merchandise was $141,000. Alcohol worth $27,000 formed the chief item tn the remaining $83,000 worth of merchandise stolen. ' - , . A staggering list and long, admits headquarters. And what Is to be done? Commissioner McLaughlin .declines to prescribe any infallible cure-all. He is certain that if there were more policemen in the city there would be less crime, and he is too shrewd a man to insist that any preventive devised by him, however satisfactory or smooth-working, could be geared to the point of efficiency to anticipate crime. "Not long ago," said the Commissioner, "a boy held up a butcher and took $500 from him. It was easy money, and he naturally wanted more of it. Unfortunately for this boy, he was caught the next time he tried it. His case is fairly illuminating. Suppose a man in a store suddenly discovers that It would be a simple thing to hold up the lone proprietor. The policeman, he knows, is on some far corner jot his beat. He commits the crime, probably his first. . There, are countless others like him. Unless there Is an ever-present danger- of gettingj caught, men will continue to steal. I Sees Crooks Encouraged " "Let a crook get a reasonable assurance that he can get away with It and he can see nothing beyond the haul. Crooks, seasoned crooks, consider capture and the penalty, but tempt a fly crook with a fair share of loot and he'll go after It Put policemen In their way that will stop them." Commissioner McLaughlin sees (lantlnord o Vs ThrM.) decidedly. Mrs. Koppelpian didn't seem to be enjoying herself. It was curious. Reason for Mrs. Koppelman's lack of enthusiasm at the show, was given .before Supreme Court Justice Callaghan yesterday, when she made application for $260 counsel fee and $60 weekly alimony, pending trial of her suit for separation. The second courtship, it - became knows than, was a dismal flop. "Craig's Wife," Mrs. - Koppelman believes, was selected by way of making her apprcrjntic her own weaknesses, if any. It pictured a selfish wife, she told Justice Callaghan, a wife whose petty tyranny led to the breaking up of her home. "My husband's purpose in taking me to that play," she added, "was evidently to show that I was entirely at fault during pur married life." Koppelman protested that he only hoped tey both would enjoy the show." He liked it anyway. Justice Callaghan ruled that Mrs. Koppelman had been too sensitive about tho picture of the stage wife, so ho denied ho application. ONLYCRIICUR IRE POLICEMEN SAYSM AUGHLIN EDITORIALS!
