Judge Lacombe. in the report filed yesterday with Judge Slayer, disapproved the receiver's application to set aside 11,100.009 of receiver's bonds to settle the Malbono st. ditster claims. The special master ruled that under the law it was not proper for the receiver to issue certificates to settle damage claims. Because of this ruling, which subordinates the claims of the tunnel victims and their relatives to the claims of the mortgage and bondholders of the companies, Judge Samuel Sea-bury, as counsel for the claimants, opposed the issuance of any receivership certificates which would further subordinate the claims of the wreck victims and minimize their chances of recovering substantial awards.

The Health Insurance Bill, which is pending in the Legislature, was explained to the members of the Women's Auxiliary of the John K. Neal Republican Club, 62 Harman st, by Dr. W. B. Broader Tuesday night. Re. publican Leader Wrilliain Schnitzspan addressed the women on "Organization." A social program followed. At the conference of the Republican Woman's National Executive Committee now being held in Washington, National Chairman Will H. Havs. yesterday outlined the part to be played by women in the coming campaign auu said that women were not to play a secondary part, but be given full consideration in the party. "The women are not to be segregated or separated," said Chairman Hays, "but assimlliated and amalgamated with that full consideration due every working member, of the organization. There is to be no separate women's organization within the parly except where such an arrangement may be needed' temporarily as an effi cient instrument in the complete amai gamation which is our objective." To- nignt, Mrs. Med 111 McCorm ck. chair man of the Women's National Committee, will preside with Mr. Hays at a dinner, at which Speaker Gillctt of the House, nnd Sea tor Cummins of Iowa, president pro tempore of the senate, win speak.

Much of the line of defense to the charge was revealed by the hypothetical M...iiia ui unier counsel John J. i urtin. Apparently one answer to the charges will be that the items named in the indictment were settled by a board of arbitration. Questions obviously aimed at the testimony which the informer, William Simpson, may give, were asked when Mr. Curtin inquired of the jurors: j u " you beI'eve a witness who uu us was oraereo to make out incorrect bills because the bills will show that they were short?" Jurors who said thev wnnM nnA further corroboration of the statement iio acceptea, tentatively, by the defense. Others were excused. Persons in the courtroom, recalling the statement made some weeks ago by counsel for defense that the arrest was due to a business conspiracy by rival lumbermen, evinced interest when Mr. Curtin asked: "Do you know a man named Paul White who is connected with the John C. Orr Lumber Company, one of the oldest lumber firms in Brooklyn?"

By Parcel Post, $1.05 The Women's Joint Legislative Conference announces that a hearing will be arranged for the B. R. T. women employees and opponents of the Transportation bill at any time desired, in spite of the fact that the first invitation was not accepted. In explanation of this failure to attend the meeting of the legislative committee on Monday afternoon is the fact that a meeting of employees was held at the same time in Brooklyn. Will H. Hays. Republican 'national chairman, says: "What we need in this country is not less politics but more attention to politics. I have no use for the individual who is too busy to take part in politics. He is riding, on another person's ticket." ... I If the Senate gets busy early the United States may be able to secure suffrage for women before France ratifies her recent vote. Unless we hurry up we will not be able to say we "load the world." The suggestion has been made that B. R. T. women conductors may receive day runs by courtesy of the men to whom the choice rightly belongs. The women themselves repudiate this and say that they do not wish to take any man's run but prefer to take their turn and get the good runs by earning thorn instead of by favor. . A woman who has recently made a tour of the Western States says of women: "The women of the West act first and talk afterward., Here is the East, they talk first and act afterward (sometimes)." Plans are forming for a Business and Professional Women's League that shall be nation-wide. State conventions will be held during June and a national convention in St. Louis In July to start the organization with a boom. This is not a trade union in any sense, but a movement to unite the business and professional women of the country for their mutual benefit Although not a political body the hope is that its power will be sufficient to insure the protection of the interests of women throughout the business world. Women speakers of prominence will tour the States explaining the aims of the Leaguo and securing memberships. So far as can be learned at present the organization Is similar in object to that of the soldier's American Legion. The Sixth A. D. Republican women are beginning to get political enthu siasm and are holding social meetings every month. The auxiliary that was first started was given up and nearly two hundred women have joined the men's club. Mrs. Gertrude Lang is one of the leaders re sponsible for this increased interest, The Priscilla Study Club, one of the first suffrage organizations in Flatbush, met at the home of the president, Mrs. Laura B. Burroughs. Tuesday night, to hear Mrs. Vance Cheney, cnairman of the Advisory Board for Social Service, speak on "Social Diseases." Mrs. Cheney has been speaking on this subject before many women's clubs, trying to get the necessary information to women who in turn are to pass it on and to form groups for the instruction and protection of the young people. Mrs. Burroughs and Mrs. Maedonald De Witt, member of the Women's Republican State Executive Committee and chairman of the Flatbush Republican Campaign Committee, were elected delegates to the Long Island Council of Women's Clubs to meet at Garden City Hotel on June 11. Mrs. Mary J. Lusher and Mrs. F. S. Van Kirk were elected alternates. The first executive meeting of the new officers of the Women's Di vision of the First A. D.

Special commit. tees have been formed to provide for the interior decorations of the new clubhouse, 137 Remsen st, which the club expects to occupy on June 1. Although Mrs. Katherlne Dough erty was the first woman of Brooklyn to be given a testimonial dinner by women, the coming dinner to Mrs. Evelyn C. Meagher at the Elks Club on May 28 promises to far outshine the first effort of the Ninth Demo crats. Leader Thomas F. Wogan and the men of the district are interested and a big party is already assured. The aim is to make this the biggest political dinner ever given to a woman. But tne women say: "Although we have invited the men, lt is a woman s dinner. The monthly social of the women of the Third A. D. was held Wednesday at the clubhouse. 314 Clinton sV Harry J.

P, MA YNARD HEADS THE HAMILTON CLUB Decides Accusation of Taking Machinery From .Nellie Bly Was Unfounded. The Grand Jury, after hearing testimony, declined to indict and dismissed the charges of grand larceny that had been made against Albert P. Cochrano of 332 E. 16th st by his sister, Mm. Elizabeth Seaman (Nellie Bly), of lot Clarkson st. Mrs. Seaman in Flatbush Police Court accused her brother Albert of appropriating machinery used In the manufacture of dental tools. Cochrane, in denying the charge, came back with a counter-accusation to the effect that his sister had mutilated a portrait of himself that hung in the E. ltiih st house. After the dismissal of tho complaint, the bail bond for $1,000 which had hound Cochrane for the action of the Grand Jury was canceled. Harry C. Cochrane, a brother, had also lodged a complaint to the effect that the accused took a quantity of silk, but that charge was also thrown out. It developed that the man ac-cused had acquired the properties alleged to be stolen in legitimate business transactions. SOLDIER RINGS UP FARES Evidently in full sympathy with the B. R.
