Ambassador W. H. Page
By Associated Press
Oxford, England, June 24.—An en
thusiastic reception was accorded to
WaJter H. Page, United States am
bassador; Viscount Bryce, former Eng
lish ambassador at Washington, and
the Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha when
they came up at to-day's commemo
ration to receive the degrees conferred
on them by Oxford University.
Ambassador Page and the Duke of
Saxe-Coburg-Gotha were created doc
tors of civil law and Viscount Bryce
became doctor of laws.
In introducing Ambassador Page the
public orator dwelt on the hundred
years of unbiwken peace during which
the friendship between the two great
English-speaking nations had been
steadily strengthened. He referred
also to the new ties between Oxford
University and the United States knit
by the will of the late Cecil Rhodes.
Pay For Carrying Post Will Be Re
duced $11,000,000 if Moon
Special to The Telegraph %
New York, June 24.—A conference
on the railway mail pay station was
held yesterday in the office of Presi
dent Ralph Peters, of the Long Is
land Railroad. The railroad officials
participating In the conference an
alyzed the Moon railway mail pay bill
introduced in the House of Repre
sentatives at Washington, and reached
the conclusion that the enactment of
the Moon bill Into law will produce
a loss to the railroads of not less than
| $11,000,000 a year In mail pay. Fol
! lowing the conference Ralph Peters,
chairman of the committee, author
ized this statement:
"The mails on the railway routes in
one section of the country were
weighed in 1913, and the railroads I
in that section received an annual In- I
crease of over $4,000,000. The mails
for the railroads in another section |
have just been weighed and as a re
sult will get an increase from July 1
of over $4,000,000. But although the
two sections already weighed disclose
service justifying additional payments
to the railroads of about $8,000,000,
the appropriation bill only allows sl,-
600,000 for the increased parcel post
burdens in the two sections not yet
weighed. If these two other sections
were weighed at once and a readjust
ment in pay to the railroads was made
in accordance with the weight of the
mail and the distance it Is carried, the
railroads would undoubtedly receive
from $6,000,000 to $8,000,000 addi
"The railroads feel very keenly the
injustice with which they are now be
ing treated by Congress in the matter
of railway mail pay. A bill has been
introduced by Congressman Moon
which proposes to enact into law per
manent rates which will pay the rail
roads about $3,000,000 less than
those now paid and $11,000,000 less
than the railroads claim they are en
titled to receive for the service ren
"We have been co-operating for two
years with the joint congressional
committee appointed to find out
whether the railroads were properly
pai-d for carrying the mails. It is not
fair that a bill actually cutting the
pay should be introduced and pushed
through Congress before the commit
tee's findings are made. Some of the
small railroads have felt that they
ought to refuse to carry the mails, for
the reason that they are not fairly
paid for their services. The larger
companies have not felt justified in so
extreme a policy. They believe the
public convenience to be paramount,
and that when the public realizes the
injustice which is being imposed upon
the railroads the people will make
manifest their disapproval."
"VISIONS OF FAIRYLAND"
"Visions of Fairyland," the beautiful
act that Is headlining at the Colonial
Theater this week, is serving as a big
drawing card. The bsuy corner theater
is filled to its capacity every night, and
the comments heard on the show are
highly complimentary. In this fairy
land act a young woman of rare figure
poses, while scenes of various descrip
tions are thrown on the sheet, making
her the central figure in many beauti
ful pictures. This is one of the best
posing acts ever attempted on the vau
deville stage. There are two other acts
on the bill, which will be replaced to
morrow, although La Graciosa will hold
over and play the full week.—Adver
