NEW TORK. July' . (Special.) A
City Planning Association has
been organized by J2 civic associ
ations, with the hope and intention of
making Manhattan more presentable
and beautiful. -
While the, co-operation of the city
authorities is sought, members of the
association point out that, being ' in
dependent of political affiliations, they
are free to demand and even .Insist
upon such reforms and Imjjrovements
as a concensus of the associated or
ranizatioos may deem necessary. '..
After two meetings, resolutions were
adopted and presented , to the confer
ence of the entire City Planning Com
mission. .Four recommendations were
made to the respective organisations
and to the city authorities. - Aclty
planning commission for. -the- entire
city -is suggested, -to be- Immediately
appointed by the Mayor and Board of
Estimate, to Include nine- municipal ot
Bclals, representative of specially -Interested
professions, . besldeB repre
sentatives of the real estate, financial,
commercial, civic and tax-paying in
terests of the city,- the commission riot
to exceed 25 in number. The fourth
recommendation reads: ' - '
"That legislation be promptly sought
by the-city authorities and the allied
civic associations making for - the
performance of such commislson and its
work and giving it definite- powers,, to
the end that public improvements shall
proceed with and not in Violation of a
broad and harmonious - general plan.
for' the development of the city.
When asked -to define the scope of
the -new commission,, as proposed,
President Robert drier said:
"It Is to carry out on a still broader
scale the same Idea as the Fifth-Avenue
Commislson has been appointed to
realize. We feel and always have felt
that ira of the Fifth-Avenue Associa
tion are guardians of a section of the
City which Is a matter of peculiar pride
to the whole city.
"Tile new commission will cover al
most everything in the way of abolish
ing topographical or building evils. It
will busy Itself with the laying Out of
city parks, keeping In mind the good
of the whole city In Improving any
single .section, so as to make the Whole
harmonious."
For the purpose of widening Second
avenue, the tombs of a number of
noted New Yorkers In the beautiful
churchyard of history, St. Mark's
Episcopal Church, are to be razed.
In the churchyard lie some of New
York's most famous men, founders of
families which are great today and
among the best known In both busi
ness and society. -
There is the Gideon Lee vault, 1823:
the Benjamin Stephen, the - Geradus
Post, 1823; the Wlnthrop, the George
Wotherspoons, the . Jacob Lorillard,
1823; the David S. Jones, 1823 (said to
be a relative of John Paul Jones); the
Thomas Barclay," 1820; the D. Ward
Lydig, 182SP the Nicholas Fish, 1820;
the P. P. Goelet, -1824; the Van Buren.
1817; the Frederick Gebhard, the Abra
ham and George Iselln and others. ,
. One of the most Interesting perhaps
Is that of Alexander T. Stewart, "the
merchant king," whose body was stolen
from' this vault and held fo a ransom
of - 100,000." It was declared to have
been recovered, but this statement has
always been doubted. , ' -
Tne ground on which St. Marks now
stands has been' used for purposes fit
worship' since 1660. The cornerstone
of the church was laid April 25, 1795,
and It wis consecrated May ,6, 1799.
A plan to save $1,000000 a year In
the cost of handling food In this city
Is under eonsideration by. half a dozen
of the ' largest wholesale 'grocery
houses here. It Involves the obstruc
tion of immense warehouses on the
South Brooklyn water front. - Such a
tremendous saving in the expense of,
yearly carting food will have a marked
influence In the cost- of living in New
York-City, it Is expected. -
--More than 100 feet 6f watef front
in South Brooklyn has . been obtained
on -option by ' agents of the Wholesale
grocery ' concerns to "move Hudson
street to Brooklyn." ' Plans for the
warehouses have been drawn. They
provide for railroad trackage in front
of and Into the buildings, so that goods
may be received from and sent away
by ships and tr without truckage,
which adds 10 per cent of cost, the
burden falling upon the consumer. -
Austin Nichols & Co., it is said, are
at the head of the movement, and other
Arms considering, the plan are F. H.
Leggett tc Co., Seeman Bros, and R. C.
Williams & Co. -
.
The suggestion for a string of retail
groceries throughout the - country - Is
opposed by some wholesalers. Harry
Balfe, of Austin Nichols & Co., said to
the Interviewer that under no clrcum-"
stances would that firm have anything
to do with operating any chain of re-
, and

Mrs. Heath, president of the House
wives' League, said the sale demon
strated that the market would, be a.
permanent one. "She said she had 're
ceived letters- from scores of farmers
who- had heard of -the new market. .

woman gets alimony in a divorce pro
eeenlng she Is entitled to full payment,
whether she needs It or not, and
whether or not her ex-husband Is able

National Park Bank for oontempt of
court because he was behind 115 In
paying his ex-Wife her alimony of $50
a month under a decree she obtained in
1909
Mr. Alice M- Merrlfleld. who asked
to. have the defendant punished, said
that he disobeyed the divorce decree
by going to New Jersey and marrying
again, and that on March 15 and April

time when he should nave sent so.
