llf^^WEEKLYfNEWSPAPER DEVOTED TO Tl!E HOl^TTINTERESTS OF NORTHERN WESTCHESTER. KATONA?, WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N. Y, THURSDAY, APRH^ 23, 1914. SINGLE COPIES, FIVE CENTS. PENSION LAW Governor Glynn Signs Meas­ ure of Interest to Instruc­ tors of County. SUPT. COVEY HELPED TO FRAME BILL The bill containing the amenu- merits to the law governing the , Westchester County Teachers' Pen- •Bion Fund was signed by ..Governor Glynn on Tjr&sday of last week. , These amendments were prepared by a committee of four—Dr. Dun- /bar, of Peekskill, President of the Board of Trustees of the Tension^ Fund; C. H. Cheney, of White Plains, . Secretary ot the Pension Board, Dr-. , McAndrew, of Mamaroneck and Mr. Covey, or Katonah—the two latter representing the Westchester Coun­ ty Teachers' Association. Under the original law joining the Pension Association was optional •with the teachers who were then in •the county but under the present .amendments all teachers must be members. Heretofore trustees and Boards of Educa-'r.u were required to deduct one half of one per cent, 'ifrom the November and March sal. afies' and forward ttie amount lo the' County Treasurer. Hereafter the amount will be deducted by the Commissioner of Education and for- v-orded to the Coujity Treasurer. Trustees—anTTT3eards of Education may deduct the amount from the teacher's salary at the close of the. term of office, tinder the original' law teachers could demand retire­ ment at'the close of tw'ent/flve _years of service--sT^kgy may request \it from the Pension Board but the time of retirement is disr^tionary 'with the Board. By an amendment to the State 'Law time taught in Westchester County may be counted as' service -under the State Pension Act. TO ERECT TABLET TO OLD COMRADES. I. T.

Latest reports are that there have been no casualties among the non- combatants in Vera Cruz. The estimated loss to the Mexicans at present Is 150 killed. The general bombardment of Vera Cruz took place early. Acocrdlng to a despatch to the State Department from United States Consul Canada the fleet Is shelling the Southern end of the town to which ,the Mexican forces hfrve retreated. Great damage Is be­ ing wrought by the gun» of the fleet which are covering the landing of ma­ rines and blue jackets. From Washington comes the news that money for the carrying on of war may not be raised by a tax levy. The administration is said to have a plan whereby there will be an extra stamp tax, and an extraordlnry tax on beer, wine and other such products. By this method It is said $100,000,000 could be raised annually. Admiral Badger's fleet arrived at Vera Cruz at 2.15 a. m. yesterday. Marines and bluejackets from the ves­ sels of the Atlantic fleet were landed under the protection of the ships' guns. Tuesday Admiral Badger ordered the vessels of his fleet to increase their speed to 17 knots an hour. This was 'n response to a wireless despatch from Rear Admiral Fletcher that fight­ ing had begun and casultles had been sustained. The sailors and marines being land­ ed are all clothed in khaki and are carrying full field equipment, Includ­ ing rounds' of ammunition. Admiral Chaddock, of the British cruiser Essex, ^was with British Con sul Hutchinson at the British Consul­ ate In Vera Cruz when fighting De- gan. .He Immediately returned to his vessel. A few dead bodies are lying in tne streets this morning. They will be picked up and buried later, when the streets <.re safe. The city this morning presented a wrecked appearance. Many buildings have been partially demolished and broken glass and wrecked street lamps are everywhere. The majority of the British and American civilians who are still there are remaining in the hotels or In their houses. The batleshlps Michigan and Louis­ iana are expected hourly. When they •arrive the ywlll land marines. The total force In Vera Cruz will, then reach about 6,000. When Admiral Badger's fleet was approaching the* Mexicans put out most of the coast lights, but the fleet was navigated safely in the darkness. In spite of the dangerous reef, the debarkment of the marines and blue­ jackets was rapid It Jivas a wonder­ ful sfght to see them disembarking. By 5 a. m. yesterday 2,000 men had landed, making the total between 3,000 and 4,000. Rear Admiral Fletcher held a con­ ference yesterday with Admiral Badger and later took up headquarters In the terminal building close to the Ward Line dock. A dispatch from Washington states that General William Wotherspoon to­ day assumed hi sduties as chief of staff of the army, succeeding Major General Wood, who has been selected commander-in-chief of the army If It becomes necessary to send the troops to Mexico. When the Senate reassembled in Washington* yesterday a essa^ge was received from the House that the Senate amendments to the Mpxlpar resolution had been agreed upon. A dispatch from Toklotsays the Jap­ anese Government officials yesterday declared that the attitude of the Japna- ese government In the Mexican situa­ tion is naturally one of strict neutral­ ity. It was pointed out that the Jap­ anese warship Idruno was now at Guaymas on the Pacific Coast and could arrange for the embarkation of Japanese in Mexico If such a course should become necesasry. . .At Vera Cruz a censorship has been established on board the United States ship Prairie. 'All messages mutt go through this,source. I and machines consigned to the Fed­ eral commander at Vera'Crux were re-. moved from the steamer Monterey at Havana yesterdayrby orders from New York. Among the sensational rumors heard yesterday was one that Charge d'Affairs O'Shaughnessey had been as­ sassinated by the Huerta men. Anoth­ er report was that one of the United States battleships had been destroyed by a mine explosion in the Harbor of Vera Cruz. No verification of either of these reports has been\ obtained, and neither report Is credited. The dead and wounded In Tues­ day's battle at Vera Cruz are as fol­ lows — . Schumaker, coxswain, of the Florida. Polnsette, seaman, of the Florida. Haggerty private, Marine Corps. Another marine, name not given. The men wounded so far as known are: C. J Leahy, N. Schwartz, G. D. Cameron and J. F. Please, seamen, of the Florida. Gisburne, electrician, of the Florida.

Custom House. Mexican forces did not oppose landing, but opened fire with rifle and artillery after our seizure of Custom House. Prairie shelling Mexicans out of their positions. Desultory firing from housetops and streets. Hold Custom, House and section of city in vicinity of ^wharves and Consulate. Casualties—Four dead and twen­ ty wounded.

All rolling stock Is safe. Desul­ tory street firing continuing from all housetops. A light northern wind is blowing. FLETCHER. At 6 o'clock the following message was sent from Vera Cruz: — Our men are firing only when • j, fired at. We prepared a flag of truce with message to Gen. Maass to cease firing or ourguns will be used. y About 1,000 marines and sailors -ashore. All business here sus­ pended s'nee noon. . FLETCHER. The landing of the United States marines at Vera Cruz, Tuesday after­ noon, as Is brought out In the New York Herald this morning, was fully justified by the practice of nations. In 1895, for example, a British naval force in reprisal for claimed Injuries landed at Corinto in Nlcaraugua, took military possession of the town and occupied the custom house and ither government buildings. In 1901 France under similar circumstances seized the custom house at Mltylene, Greece, In order to enforce compliance by the Turkish government with a demand for the settlement of claims. In nei­ ther case, however, did these mesures result as our landing has, in war, pur? and sjmple. An interesting and perhaps.'most im \ portant feature of the situation was the refusal of the British steamer El Zorra on 'accordance with the order of Rear Admiral Craddock, royal navy, to ^ransj&rt ammunition already on board, for the use of the^Huerta forces at Tampico. Her captain explained that he unloaded his cargo because England's friendly relation with Amer­ ica would not permit his vessel tp supply the fleet with war material. At 3 o'clock yesterday the United States Senate, by a vote of 76 to 13, passed a resolution giving to President J (Continued on Pag* Eight)
