WASHINGTON HISTORICAL . TOUR COMING TH ROUGH L. I. i ——¦— ' Days when horse-drawn coaches were the means of travel will be re- called when on May 25 and 26 the route over which George Washington passed on his tour of the island dur- ing his term as president will be ru- traveled by a party of between 300 and 500 , but this time the trip will be made in the most modern of au- tomotive vehicles.

FIND MONEY HIDDEN IN PIECE OF OLD GAS PIPE The theft of $75 from the office ' of Michael Orisino in the rear of Robert MichnorT ,. Inc., is believed to have been cleared, up with the finding of. a piece of- gas pipe in which $41 in bills bad been hidden in ( the rear of the store. Orisino has charge of. the pa- per routes. Monday night the hinges on the desk drawer were removed and $75 taken. Two days later Herman Dreyer , one of the members of the Michnoff firm , was fillin g a hod with coal when he came across a piece of pipe that was used when the store was renovated a short time ago and saw a $5 bill protruding from one end. The thief is believed to have been ap- prehended and the matter is now a closed incident , as Orisino did not de- sire prosecution. Some long news- paper accounts out yesterday about the money being in an old whip socket w-ere totally wrong.

'\\Special but of 'town \ speakers anc] (Continued oh Page 4 , This Section) The bureau of the. Republican State Committee having- charge of research and publicity sends out occasionally sheets of editorial reprints from newspapers about the state. One circulated this week contains an edi- torial from a recent issue of the Pat- chogue Advance called, \Setting Crim- inals Free , \ which riddled Governor Smith' s defense of his action in com- muting \Bum \ Rodgers ' prison term when that notorious character had a previous record of being twice sent up as an incorrigible child and being convicted of petit larceny, robbery in the first degree and carrying a con- cealed weapon. Rodgers rewarded the Governor ' s clemency, as might have been expected , by re-embarking on a career of crime. WILD DUCKS NOW TAME Wild ducks do not look as if they knew much , but they certainly must know that the hunting season is ' over , for they have been flocking by the hundreds to this side of . the bay and they appear as unconcerned with the presence of mankind as if no gun ever splattered shot among them. Several times this week the water just off the moufh of Patchogue river has been fairly alive with ducks of various kinds , some swimming within ten feet of shore while people sat there in automobiles or stood just back from the bank looking at them.

STATE REPUBLICAN BUREAU : USES ADVANCE EDITORIAL Islip Official s Bid for Court Offer County Rent Free Rooms At Bay Shore Board Unanimously Favors Propoai. tion In Hope That Supremo Court Will Be Held Tliere *TTIF. Isli p town board at its month- ly meeting yesterday stole a march on tho Brookhaven board in tho way of bidding for the Supreme Court to be located in Islip town nnd ns n result it is possible thnt Islip town may be favored over Brookhaven and that Ray Shore rather than Patchogue may be picked for the new branch quarters for Supreme Court and other county business that must bo trans- acted in this section of Suffolk. Town Clerk Warren C. Haff pro- posed to the Islip board that it donate to the iise of the county the Islip Town court chambers in the Abrew Building in Bay Shore in an effort to have their towu favored as the new- center. He pointed out that Islip is paying for the upkeep of these quar- ters about $1, 500 a ' year und thut since the town must pay for the use of them and since there is comparativel y littl e business it \vould be a fine idea to givd the use of theni to the coun- ty. The town • board -unanimously backed the idea ' as ' an ' excellent one and notification will be sent at once to the board of supervisors of this action. The Islip court chambers are much large r than the present ones here in the Syndicate building and are more modern in their appointments and ar- chitecture, ln addition there are two fairl y large anterooms that can be suitably used for judge ' s chambers and conference rooms. The rooms arc said to be superior to either the present court rooms in Patchogue or any that could be obtained here with- out extensive changes in other than the town hall. That the conrt . chambers would probably be moved from their present location in the Syndicate . Building was indicated about a month, ago when a big increase in the rental fee was announced. Previously the . supervis- ors had made overtures to the Brook- haven board for the use of the court room in the Town Hall. It was turned down at that time and it was indicated that the question would be revived at the last meeting ' pf the town board , but it is generally believed that pub- lic opinion and newspaper articles showing the town need of the rooms in the Town Hall killed thc idea be- fore it had a chance to spring into the open again. There is a large legal question also of the board' s right to charge rent for any town property. In the meantime an investigation of possible court sites was made and the last discussed plan was to lease quar- ters in the Mills building hero and make it a recognized branch of the county clerk' s office. At the same time ft was reported that the owners of the Syndicate building had compro- mised on the rent charges.

' Say No N-ews — Some Dealers Slashing to Gain Trade \TriERE are rumors of an impending ~ price cutting war on gasoline but no information can be secured from local wholesale or' retail dis- tributors confirming this. A tour was made by the Advance of the territory between -Bayport and Bellport . late yesterday, noting -price signs and mak- ing inquiries at somo other filling sta- tions , abou t 25 places being checked up) • . - ¦ . \ This found the vast majority selling gas at 22 cents a gallon , and it held good for all brands; but one station advertised a price of 21 cents and it is said the proprietor makes a cash price of 20 in. some instances , and one sta- tion bulletined • a price of 20 , cents. These were 'in Patchogue. In Bell- port a whole cluster of stations , vari- ous brands , were all getting 24 cents. Nobody had received any notice of a big drop in price or news to confirm a rumor that/Standard Oil Company- expected to put its wagon price down to 16 cents. It was explained that the wholesale price frequently fluctuates a cent , on short notice. The . Advance inquired of three big distributing- sta- tions in this section , Sinclair , Stand- ard arid Gulf , ' and the management in each case said there .was no notice of any change. . The , wholesale price seems to be 20 cents in most cases though.to some large exclusive one-brand stations this is shaded off a cent. What cut- ting is being done is by the individual dealer. A ; \Bellpprt dealer, said the wholesale price was 21 cents when he bought last and he supposed the best price tq even the exclusive stations was 20. cents. But evidently somebody is getting it for less than that. \ ' . . ' DUCO AUTO PAINTING bspMlenced man. Albin , Roe & Terry. —Adv.

An intereHlng nnd informative talk on tuxes wns given at the luncheon meeting of the Round Table club at Roe ' s hotel Tuesday noon by Lawyer Joseph Jaha of Patchogue , a former United States Internal Revenue Bur- eau man. Ke told of the many dill' er- ent kinds of taxes which must be met and 'how. certain of them seem to be in iv measure defeating their own pur- pose , as , for Instance , wealthy citi- zens changing their legal residence to Florida to . relieve their estates of the heavy inheritance tuxes here. He told of embarrassment some- times caused in settling substantial estates by the failure of a decedent to leave sufficient liquid assets to pay tuxes , and advised thut this be kept in mind by persons arranging their affairs with a view to , the welfare of their families.
