ES FOR RECEIVER
Another Policy-Holder Sues the
WANTS SHARE OF PROFIT
Phlladclphian, With Whom Others
Joined, Sues for Distribution of
Surplus Hydo and Alex
ander Join Issue.
NEW YORK, April 24. Receivership
proceedings today were instituted against
the Equitable Life Assurance Society by
J. Wilcox Brown, of Maryland, a policy
holder. In the United States Court ho
IHed an action against the society asking
the appointment of a receiver for the sur
plus funds; an accounting, 6f the benefit
of himself and other policy-holders that
may join with him In the proceedings, and
an Injunction to prevent the society hold
ing the surplus.
Brown alleges that the society's officials
.have disregarded their trust and have not
paid his proportion of the net surplus.
His counsel have issued a i-atement say
ing that the huge surplus of the soolety
is not legally retained from the policy
holders nor lawfully used by the society,
and that the profit due the policy-holders,
except the 7 per cent dividends, is now
attempted to be swept away by the stock
Two other phases of the Equitable con
troversy were in court today. Justice
McLean in the Supreme Court reserved
decision In the case of Herbert G. Tull,
a policy-holder, who applied for aft in
junction -restraining the society's officers
from taking any further proceedings to
obtain an amended charier for the so
ciety. Mr. Tull's counsel attacked the
proposed charter as a "blind," which real
ly gave the stockholders nothing.
Counsel for Vice-President Hyde, of the
society, and Franklin B. Lord, a policy
holder, appeared before Judge Maddox In
the Supreme Court at Brooklyn to oppose
a petition by President Alexander to
strike out certain references to Mr. Alex
ander, from the petition in which Mr.
Hyde intervened in Mr. Lord's injunction
proceedings against the proposed mutual
izatlon plan. There was no hearing, as
the court had not received the Alexander
The statement in Mr. Hyde's petition to
which Mr. Alexander objects Is to the ef
fect that the proposed mutualizatlon plan
was passed by the board of directors with
out regard to the content of the majority
of the stock and that it was Inspired
alely by Instructions of Mr. Alexander
assuming to act In his capacity as presi
dent of the society. Counsel also objected
to the assertion that Mr. Alexander has
teen hostile to his trust.
Samuel- Untermeyer, counsel for Mr.
Hyde, told the court today that he had
received a copy of the Alexander petition
and had heard that it waa to be presented
to the court today, and that he was there
to oppose It. The court, however, had
not received the Alexander petition, and
there was no hearing.
HOW MANY AUTOS.
Seven Is a Discreet Maximum, Be
yond Which Is Extravagauiiel-jj;
(Rene Bache., in Outing.)
Tha will-known young millionaire of
sporting proclivities. G. Astor Midas,
considers that he Is rather economical
when he keeps only seven automobiles.
Indeed, with a less number, he would
find himself somewhat at a loss to meet
everyday requirements of transportation
and amusement. With seven cars
the term "automobile" is used only by
Ignorant outsiders he can go in for
racing in a moderate way, and is pro
vided with such vohlcular conveyances
as are absolutely requisite for the estab
lishment of a gentleman who spends half
the year out of town, and who, disliking
the railroad, prefers to travel by gaso
line between his country place and the
Two of the cars are racing machines,
purchased for $13,000 and $16,000 respec
tively, the latter having greater horse
power. Of the others, one Is a light ve
hicle, with seats for the owner and his
chauffeur, and is used for short trips to
town and back. It cost $8000. There is
an omnibus car (price $12,000), seating
seven or eight persons, and employed for
carrying parties to and from the country
place. To those are added a large tour
ing car, for seven people, worth $15,000;
a .light touring car (value $12,000), for
use at odd times, and an opera car, hold
ing four, to convey members of the fam
ily to the theater and to entertainments.
This last is covered, being intended par
ticularly for cold weather. It was bought
for $8000, making a total of $84,000 for
the seven machines.
This, of course, represents only the
first outlay. Expenses of maintenance
run up to about $20,000 a year, the chief
item being for wages of a number of fn
dlspensable employes. Mr. Midas keeps
a racing chauffeur, who is the head man,
at $3000 a year. Under him is a touring
chauffeur, at $2000 per annum, and there
are two assistant chauffeurs who are
skilled mechanics, at$1800 and $1500, re
flectively. To these are added two ex
port cleaners and polishers, who see that
the machines are always spick and span,
and who receive $80 apiece a month, run
ning the pay roll up to a total of some
what over $10,000 atyear.

OLD ENGLISH GARDENING
Vegetables Xow Xcvcr Heard of,
"Such as "Good King Henry."
It is a little curious to think that even
as far back as. the Middle Ages a great
quantity of "garden stuff" was Imported
into tms country from the Continent. Al
though our ancestors were famous in
those days for their salads and greens,
they knew nothing about the cultivation
of edible roots until the reign mat Henry
VIII. Up to then such things as carrots,
turnips and artichokes were sent from
Flanders, and special messengers were
sometimes despatched to bring back sup
plies for the royal table. Among the
green vegetables most popular in Tudor
days was "Good King Henry" or -"Mercury
Recently there has been some discussion
as to whether this plant is wholesome or
not. The ignorance that exists in most
parts of the country about hls qnce pop
ular vegetable is astonishing. Many
gardeners have never even hoard of it.
The only district in which it still seems
to be cultivated Is South Lincolnshire.

Denny Hall before a large audience, which pronounced the dbbato one of tne-vnost spirited ever held in Seattle. Pacific won

Nothing could be easier to grow, and as
it Is a perennial plant, there Is little or
no trouble connected with' It after it has
once been put in the ground. It may be
raised from seed sown In the open In
April or May, the young plants being set
out in their permanent positions about a
foot apart each way; or it may be started
from old-established clumps or stools
which are generally divided- in autumn
or in early spring. The young loaves are
