31 Ovation in New York
Roar of 21 Guns From Governor's
j j Island Welcomes - neroes;
, nigh Officials Present
15. (By As
sociated Press.) The nation,
through New York, today flung
wide Its arms ana iook to its heart
Captain George Fried of . the liner
President Roosevelt. It also re
ceived as heroes his. crew, who
transcended sea traditions in res
cuing 25 seamen from the sinking'
British freighter Antinoe in mid
ocean on January 27.
iThe Roosevelt steamed slowly
up from quarantine with two
empty bunks those of the two
men who lost their lives in the
llrst rescue attempt.
Hooting whistles, bright bunt
ing; roaring cannon and the spok
en words of high officials these
were the outward manifestations
of honor. Silent handclasps,
brimming eyes and wistful, under
standing looks these were the
tributes from seamen to seamen
which brought a lump to Captian
Fried's throat and set his crew to
stirring nervously in the limelight
of acclaim.
First to go over the side from
Llbe tug Macon, which more the
offiiial party to meet the Roose
velt at quarantine was Mrs. Fried.
Hat in hand, flushed and embar
rassed. Captain Fried stood at the
head of the gangway and took his
wife in his arms. A dozen roses
which she wore were . crushed in
the embrace, and a host of cam
eramen shouted in glee as pictures
were snapped.
While Captain Fried and Chief
Officer Robert B. Miller received
an official welcome from Grover
Whalen representing Mayor Walk
er,! Admiral Charles P. Plunkett,
representing the navy, and Gen
et al Charles P; Summerall, repre
senting the army," the Roosevelt
prepared to get under way. Flank
ed to right and left by the Macon
and the navy tug Iuka both bright
with bunting and tuneful with
bands, and with a- navy cutter
leading, the procession started up
the harbor. Everything that float
ed from wasp like speed boat to
palatial liner greeted the Roose
velt en route. A 21-gun salute,
greatest honor the nation accords
boomed from Governor's Island.
The din was Increased by aircraft,
hlch thundered overhead, skim
ming the topmasts of the rescue
f-hip. The fireboat John Purroy
Mitchet, throwing graceful plumes
of water' from every nozzle, joined
the review, which swept majesti
cally up toward Hoboken on the
Jersey shore.

While authorized in increasing

who as yet, find plans too indefin

Those who are unaccustomed, unintentionally or other
wise, to the new, city ordinance requiring drivers, to; stop , be
fore entering through streets are due for a reckoning as a
result of action taken last night by the city council permit
ting Police! Chief Minto to hire two extra traffic officers for
a period of two weeks to help enforce the through street
ordinance.: V-l;. J
Alderman Johnson introduced a resolution that the chief
be granted the privilege of hiring the men for the specified
uiuo muereuiiun a Toiiey oi ques
tions -were raised by various al
Mayor Giesy explained that the
intent in hiring the men is to pro
tect traffic on the through streets
rather than to catch violators, al
though that is to be done, too. At
the present time, according to the
Mayor, so many drivers enter
through streets without stopping
that those driving along the
through streets, expecting no sud
den rush of cars, might be taken
unawares, and accidents might be
raused. r 1
Alderman W. W, Rosebraugh
raised the objection that the reso
lution to hire the men was prema
ture, on the grounds that the peo
ple are not yet accustomed to the
new ordinance, and should be
given at least two weeks more
chance before . extra men are ad
ded. He declared those from out
of town who are not familiar with
the law should not be arrested.
To this Chief Minto replied that
it Is not the policy to fine those
who are from out of town and who
have not known that the law is in
' Alderman Rosebraugh voiced
the only dissenting vote to the
resolution granting -permission to
hire the extra men.
While the subject was up and
the matter warm, not to say hot.
Alderman Dancy suggested that
the posts In some places are not
obvious and that something
should be done to remedy the sit
uation. Alderman E. B. Graben
horst vouched for the suggestion.
Ferry street approaches were
found to be heaviest offenders.

OffewHl Herel
Two threats to sueJ the! city
were voiced or Intimated at the
meeting of the ; city council last
night. John F. Logan,' attorney
for the stage operators of j .Ore
gon, intimated that it the city of
Salem does not reduce the license
on stages, he will take the matter
to the courts. P. F. Layman, at
torney for'C. C. Ferguson of rNew
Derg tnreatenea outrignt to , sue
if the city does not pay , a reward
of 500 he claims the city
Ferguson. !
. That courts : without exception
throughout Oregon have held that
any fee over $10 per annum per
stage charged by a municipality
is more tnan a regulatory fee, and
hence, cannot be charged; was
the claim made to the council by
He pointed , out that the,' state
law specifically; provides that a
municipality cannot tax stages
for revenue, but only for regula
tory purposes.
Portland, Astoria, . St. Helens,
and other towns . were trying to
charge from $20 to $60 per stage.
nut tneee courts without except
tion held such sums exhorbltant.
and now these cities are charging;
no fee.
If Salem must charge a fee, Mr.
Logan suggested $5, but added
that it might be necessary to. try
the matter out In court Unless
the .$20 fee now n existence, is
not done away with, and the sum
made. $10, a. year or less, j
Layman asserted in a commun
icatlon to the council that i his
client, Ferguson, had - given I the
information that hadT led to the
arrest and conviction of one Slope,
school teacher and moral pervert;
Kowitx, as city attorney, had
rendered to the council, the opin
ion- that the city has no right to
pay the rewards it had. formerly
offered because the violation was
of a state law, and because of the
state law Slope was convicted.
Layman holds that there is an
ordinance against f such' offense,
specifically, that of attacking j a
young Salem girl, and1 that the
city is reliable for the reward it
offered. If the city does not take
the right action, declares Layman,
suit will be started at once. The
communication, was referred to
