Tarrytown and North Tarry­ town to Make Known Their Objections NEW MEMBERS IN BOARD North Tarrytown Objects to Provision of Actual Sale of Property-r-Tarry- town Objects to One Board of Asses­ sors Saying That I t Might Mean In ­ crease in Tax Rate in the Village. Whito Plains, January 5.— The now board of supervisors mot for the first time today and the prospects are that tho session will not bo over until late in tho afternoon as many questions of salary increase in the various depart­ ments will come up and also in all pro­ bability tho question of creating a county auditor. The board also held a hearing on the now tax bill for this county which was passed last year by the legislature and vetoed by Governor Sulzor. It provides for one collector for each town, one board of assessors for each town and also for the actual sale of property for unpaid taxes after two years. Much opposition to the bill has de­ veloped and William G. Given appear­ ed for the North Tarrytown board against tho bill. The objections of the North Tarrytown board to the bill are centered about the provision for the actual sale of property for unpaid taxes, but they also object to some of of the other provisions of the bill. President Frank R. Pierson and Trustee Seth Bird represented Tarry­ town. They did not heartily approve of the sale provision of the bill.but did not object to'this so much as to possible rearrangement- of assessments in- d if­ ferent parts of the, towxl by a single board of assessors. In Tarrytown the assessments are high. In case the Tar­ rytown assessment be cut by a board it would mean a jump in the rates there. John II. Tltll appeared for Dobbs Fer­ ry and several other villages were rep­ resented. The new committees of the board will probably not be announced until later in tho week.

JOHN A. MURRAY SNOWBOUND. Oscawana, January 5.«—Real Estate Broker John A. Murray, of Tarrytown, is linowed in herd today. The snow is six inches deep* TO OPEN WITH “ MADAME X ” AT MUSIC HALL TONIGHT—LARGE ADVANCE SALE The motto of Charles K. Champlin during the past twelve years that ho has appeared as the star of his ow.n company has been the best for the least money, which no doubt accounts for his wonderful success both artistic and fi­ nancially, The reputation gained by Mr. Cham­ plin for the exeelleut manner in which lie stages his productions has made him the most popular of all the popular priced organizations in the country, with the result that crowded houses await him in every city in which he appears, while the press and public have been unanimous in their praiso of his performances, ilis list of plays this season is by far the greatest ever at­ tempted by a-traveling company. They consist of the very best New York suc­ cesses, while the scenery and costumes, together with the wonderful electrical effects are the finest ever seen on the stage. Mr. Champlin will opon a week’s en­ gagement at Music Hall tonight pre­ senting “ Madame X.” Mother love, tho greatest of all hu­ man sentiments, has served as a lead­ ing motive in comparatively few plays. Romantic love has always been the theme for the playwright as well as the novelist. One of the few exceptions is found in “ Madame X . ” While pride, ambition, romantic love and many ot|ier ele­ ments- conibino in making this great drama, yet mother love is tho real mo­ tive. Persons wishing to secure good seats for tonight should attend to it ¡^t once as tho sale is very large and only a few of the good ones are left. During the week tho following fine list of plays will be given: “ The En­ sign,” “ The Master of the House,” “ Alias Jimmy Valentine,” “ A Gentle­ man of Leisure,” “ The Price Women Pay,” “ Shore Acres” and “ Daughters of Men.” Matinees will be given Wednesday and Saturday. BAILEY IN WILD NICHT RIDE CODIES TO GRIEF William Bailey, who lives in the Sleepy Hollow Road, tried to imitate “ The Headless Horseman” or “ the Midnight Ride of Paul Revere” in his dash through the village streets early Sunday morning with the result that he was taken to the hospital in an un­ conscious. condition. According to the police Bailey, who is in the employ of John D. Rockefeller, was accustomed to taking out certain of the wild and fiery steeds to train them. Saturday night lie hail an ani­ mal that could “ step some.” After galloping around town in a wild fash­ ion he went up Beckman avenue. Around two o ’clock the Tarrytown poliee were startled to see the animal dash down Wildey street and across the railroad tracks towards Division street. Opposite the North Tarrytown high school, the saddle became loose and Bailey dove over the steed’s head land­ ing headfirst on the brick pavement. Sergeant Moran and Patrolman Traey picked Bailey up. He was bleeding and a hurried call was sent for the ainbu- lence. It was said at the hospital to­ day that bis injuries consist of a dis­ located hip and two deep cuts over the eyes. NO RAILROAD DECISIONS; (By • United Press) Washington, January 5.—The su­ preme court adjourned today shortly after two o’clock without handing down any decision on the important railroad cases which are now before them. It isn’t hard to be a philosopher; All you have to do is to preach what you don’t practice. By the ills that flesh is heir to we merely mean that the doctor needs the money. SAYS PEOPLE DON’T 0© „ TO CHURCH TODAY BECAUSE THEY DON'T WANT TO. Pastor Brooks of the First Baptist Church last evening spoke upon the subject of ‘ ‘ Church Attendance and Non-Attendance.” 'He declared that the Daily News was to be congratulated in starting a discussion on so vital a. topic. He said that all the -article’s pro and con had been thought-proyoking and refreshing and that surely as the atmosphere cleared, some definite good must result. Criticism is what the church needs, especially i f the criticism is givon in a fair spiirt. He also sug­ gested that the% ground had been pret­ ty well covered- by the former writers and so there was not so much new material left for use. The outliáe of Pastor Brooks remarks is as follows There seems to be some disagreement as to the church itself. WHAT IS THE CHURCH! It is the body of be lievers in Christ under whatever name they may be locally designated. The Salvation Army is just as surely one of the branches of the church as is the Presbyterian or the Episcopal. Jesus suggested that there would be many branches wihen he declared, “ I am tho vine, ye the branches.” There is no local church or denomination that dares to say IT is the only and the rightful church. Despite tho affirmation to tho contrary the church IS divinely ap­ pointed (Matthew 18:17) and it was Christ's evident purpose that the body of believers Or the« ecdesia should al­ ways publicly worship together. A fair thought upon this matter should lead some of our honest criticis to search for tho body of worshippers who teach and believe nearest tho critic’s thought and teaching and ally witlli it in helpful service. -Allies in political parties do not always believe all that the party stands for but the little things are brushed aside, for in the main issues they both agree. Non-attendance at church is largely due to the new era into which the world has been ushered. With the rise of machinery an entirely different at­ mosphere has been created in economic social -and the religious life. Cities have grown enorm-ously; villages and towns have been depleted. Tho spirit of independence has given place to the spirit of interdependence. Living is swifter in every phase of life. Educa­ tional advantages, the wondrous devel­ opment of popular education through the periodical and newspaper have so changed things that the minister is uo longer the only educated or well-in­ formed man in the community. Not long since the minister was the oracle. Everyone poses as an oracle today. A few docades ago the church (the local church) was the centre of everything. Today even in tho country the auto and the ’phone have usurped much of the social work of tho church. We aro passing through a period of readjust­ ment; the pendulum has swung over about as far as it will go, but it will return and throngs mightier than ever will again fill the local church. But despite the fact that congrega­ tions are for tho most part not so large in tho local churches t.he church is do­ ing a greater work today for the King­ dom of God and humanity than ever before. Witness the many social en­ terprises in which it leads. The war on White Slavery emanates from the church; the light against the damning of our youth, aye and maidens, too, by intoxicants is carried on by the church; the rescuing of little children, being speedily turned into little old men and women in factory and other industries, is being carried on directly and indi­ rectly by the' church. In these and other pressing social evils the influence of the church is felt as never before, and this influence, increasingly rami­ fying the every part of the social fab­ ric is gaining week by week. Critics of the church should be fairer during this period this period of readjustment; should applaud rather than denounce; should get in line and help, rather than stand back and criticize. Our Ex-Church member has uncon­ sciously given one very important reas­ on why people today are not attending churchhh. A ll the other reasons he advances are not so good as this. lie. says ‘‘ Jesus was simply a great Re­ former and a master teacher of spirit­ ual truths.” . That is the real reason why he himself does not attend church. He has lost his Christ. Christ is to -him a great teacher, not the risen Son of God, not the Saviour of the World. And so with a great multitude who are being led astray by false teachers, wolves in sheep’s clothing, like Ella (Continued on 6 th -page) Photo by American Press Association.

FIRST REAL SNOW STORM OF WINTER ABOUT THREE INCHES OF THE WHITE BAIN COVERED MOTHER EARTH THIS MORNING. The'first real snow storm of the winter, bringing joy to the coalman and children, and cuss words froin^ the commuters svho s’ip on their way to early tiains and trolleys, started at four o’clock yesterday afternoon and this morning the ground and trees were rotxd in the while blanket. It will not last long however. Yesterday was what people considered a miserable day—nothing to do but sit in the house. Early in the morning it rained and around noon it turned into a hail which kept falling until the wet snow started. There were few people on the streets and trains and trolleys were delayed. The trolleys seemed to have the greatest trouble negotiating the steep Main Street hill and the (»lenvillc hill. The storm will no doubt be a benefit to the many who arc out of work for they ’were around as early as six-thirty o'clock to residents and merchants seeking a chance to earn a quarter to clean off the walks. Up until yesterday there was good skating on the Tarrytown lake. The ice was from two to three inches thick and was as smooth as glass. The first sleighs of the winter noticed were those of the American Express Company. They were out early, but before the day is over they may have to go back to the wheels. Today also is the opening day of all the schools. No doubt snowballs will be flying so it will pay to be on the lookout. The poljce, however, will take the names of offenders. SPECIAL ELECTION AT OSSINING TOMORROW OsBining, January 5.—This village to­ morrow will vote on a $34,000 bonding proposition to pave Highland avenue from the north to the south village lines; There is no doubt but that the proposition will be carried as the state agrees to pave and maintain sixteen feet of the forty foot highway. The village is now bonded for over a mil­ lion dollars. LOCAL WEATHER PREDICTION. (By United Press) New York, January 5.—Forecast for New York and vicinity—Fair and cold­ er tonight and Wednesday. DOBBS FERRY MAY HAVE NIGHT SCHOOL COMMITTEE W ILL WAIT ON SCHOOL BOARD TONIGHT AND .DEMAND SOME ACTION. Dobbs Ferry, January 3.—The board of education here will hold a meeting tonight at tho high school and take up the question of establishing a night school hero for*the remainder of tho season. Tho Home and School Association at a meeting sometime ago recommended tho establishing of a night school and tonight a committee headed by 1£. E. Albeo will present a petition to the board. The members of the association claim that the school can be established for only about $400 or $500 and that this will make little difference in the tax rate for tho new year. Owing to the fact that the board has a surplus a night school can bo established without a special election of voters. The other members of the committee are J . E. Baker, Mrs. Baker, R. V. Bur- lock, Mrs. Jean L. Storms, Rev. John M. Trout, Mrs. Joseph B. Walker and Mrs. Margaret E. Monahan. The Association will hold a meeting next Monday evoning in the high school auditorium and Mrs. Bryce, of Philadel­ phia, organizer of the Homo and School movement will be the principal speaker. There was a small attendance at the meeting of the People’s Forum yester­ day to hear a lecture on Bulgarian atrocities in the late Balkar war. It was due to the inclement weather. ’ On Saturday the funeral of William Bcnnin, a former inmate at tho county house who died in tho lockup at police headquarters of heart disease Friday night was held. The body was held a day for claimants ¡by J. E. Baker and then buried in Mount Hope. Benning had worked in White Plains for David McAndless, a blacksmith. CENTRAL TO COVER “BRIDGE OF SIGHS” It is joyous news for tho commuters to learn that during the week the New York Central and Hudson River Rail­ road will cover the bridge at the local station. It comes after the constant appeals to the railroad by Village Pres­ ident Pierson and by the changing of the signal system. The material for covering tho bridge arrived Saturday. IN OFFICIAL TEST DOES FINE WORK AND PERFORM­ ANCE FAR EXCEEDS CONTRACT —EVERYBODY PLEASED In its official test before Hugh Gavin, the official village inspector, Saturday afternoon, the Knox automobile fire engine owned by Rescue Hose Company No. i, of North Tarrytown, established a record unequalled by any other fire engine in the county, pumping over 850 gallons of water or 250 gallons a minute more than required by the contract. In the morning the machine was given its official road test. In the straight­ away it went over sixty miles an hour. Of course the Rescue Company has speed regulations and none of the drivers will be allowed to manipulate the machine over twenty-five miles an hour without danger of being expelled from the com­ mand. The first test consisted of two streams pumping at 130 pounds pressure. Fcr two hours this was kept up and when Hugh Gavin gave orders to shut down, Demonstrator Perry showed him that the machine had plenty of reserve power and as the crowd eagerly watched tlVe pressure gauge the dial went a little over 190 pounds The performance was considered wonder­ ful. The next test was sending through three hundred feet of hose. For a half hour the machine pumped on stream also at 180 pounds. The last test was from the hydrant in front of the Daily News office. There was only sixty-five pounds in the hydrant and the pressure on the pump was boosted to 140 pounds. It was impossible to go above that because of the vacum. Fire Chief Ross, of New Rochelle, was an interested spectator, lie expressed himself well pleased with the performance of the machine. A number of the Knox Company officials also witnessed the test. Inspector Gavin will make his report to the village this evening. There is 110 doubt but that the machine will be accepted. CENTRAL DETECTIVE BUREAU’S WARNING Tho New York Central Detective Bureau has issued a warning that here­ after loafers must keep from the local station. So far this winter many com­ plaints have been received at the quar­ ters of the company in regard to tho continual hanging around tho radiators, expectorating on the floor and smoking tho twenty for a nicltle cigarettes. To protect tho women patrons at the sta­ tion it is necess'iry for the department to issue this warning. ON THE CALENDAR TONIGHT. iMadame “ X ” at Music Hall, by the Charles Ii. Champlin Co.
