THE WHITE PLAINS BELMONT Official announcement that the new hotel under construction on the Post road will be. ready for patrons in July is pleasing news. It is no less pleasing to have confirmation of the report that John McEntee Bowman will operate the hostelry. This in ­ sures the success of the hotel from the start. It is fitting that White Plains should form a link in this celebrated hotel chain. And the association means much to the city and to West ­ chester. Announcement of. the con ­ nection will undoubtedly be found in all the other Bowman hotels from Havana to California, and patrons of those hotels touring the East will make it a point to stop at White Plains for at least a night. That the county seat should be the first community in- Westchester to have a modern hotel for transients is indicative of the progress this city Is making. The project has been fin ­ anced largely by local capital and the community owes to the men who sup ­ plied these funds a debt of gratitude. WESTCHESTER VALUES Investors and real estate brokers ’ will have a keen eye for the result of the auction of business properties in Westchester County which arc be ­ ing disposed of by James Butler. The sites to be sold are in White Plains, Yonkers, Port Chester and Tarry- town. The property to be disposed of is on prominent streets and has been accumulated over a period of years. The sale, which takenplace ih^New York City on April 15, will undoubt ­ edly bring a large number of bidders, aa Westchester business property at the moment is very much to the fore. Westchester County has a limited amount of business property, as our zoning boards and city and village authorities have been diligent in re- strieting the areas in which business buildings may be erected. Foresight- ed residents of the county and a far *er.number of New York City cap- „ lists have been quietly buying up business sites here since the opening of our parkway system sent valua ­ tions soaring and boosted the popu­ lation to the half million mark. Since the turn of the year, the s^le of prominent business sites has feat- id the real estate news of the coun- This type of property has been ‘ teularly active in White Plains. _ srvers will be interested to learn lether the activity of the year is led upon present values or upon jlutures. NOW IT'S LOUISIANA Governor Huey P. Long of Louisi ­ ana is engaged in what has become r more or less general pastime in the o — thwest — defending his right to .apy the executive chamber after i«ving been duly elected. cr_ We have had two impeachments in Oklahoma where a Governor was wived and Oklahoma is only now lining her majority. A single »«ven years ago saved Govern ­ or Robertson of Oklahoma. In the Hte state of Texas “ Farmer Jim\ pison was removed as Governor tnal in 191T. In 1918, Governor William Sulzer was removed by the Legislature of New York State. _J» til, twelve governors have been “ ht-^rlhe bar on impeachment Tdmgi since 1881, and, with the exception of the Sulzer case, all have been Southern oij Western Governors. Impeachment, however,., has not disposed of all the charges made against governors. One recent gov ­ ernor of Indiaha went to Atlanta for a term and another escaped convic ­ tion on a technicality. A governor of Illinois was compelled to return large sums of money to the state but escaped heavier punishment. Since the World War we have not been finding any too heavy material for our executives in many of the states. Minority candidates are be ­ ing elected. Many successful candi ­ dates represent factions and preach and practice demagogy. As is often the case, when conservative elements disagree the radicals show enough strength to take control.' The situation in the South should give us some concern. Like the East, this is old conservative stronghold of the nation. New England, New York and the South see eye to eye on prac ­ tically everything except the tariff, and the tariff is more of a bugaboo with which politicians scare timid farmers in the South than an acfual threat to Southern progress. The South is undergoing economic recrea ­ tion. It is no longer a one-crop coun­ try. Industry » filling the pay en ­ velope. In ten years the Piedmont section of the Carolinas and the val ­ ley of the Tennessee and its tribu ­ taries have seized .thc^spiftdje lead ­ ership from New England. Yams an# being spun atthe gateway to the farm. \ The'Eastern dollar is earning interest in the South. Governor Long has made a spec ­ tacle of himself at Baton Rouge. But that is nothing new for him. He has been active in state politics a long while, despite his 36 years, and he has generally been front page copy. If there is anybody of moment he has been able to agreo with in the state we cannot recall his name at the present, and we are fairly familiar with political conditions from Baton | Rouge to New Orleans and on down I to the bayous of Barataria. Long has been suffering from what | is commonly known as a \swelled I head, ” or. as the country folk say, he got too big for his breeches. He j boasted of carrying the Legislature | in his pocket until the Legislature 1 tired of hearing it. The Legislature will now ’ decide j who is in control at Baton Rouge. AS YOU LIKE IT With the changing season, •come new vagaries in women ’ s dress and endless new topics for argument more or less mixed with the usual indignation. The weather makes an easier start in the conversational handicap, but “ the freakishness of modern dress ” rarely fails to run ahead with a great hue and cry from Uie sidelines to speed it In the race. It is a curious thing that we take -the fashions of the day so prodig- ously to heart. It is rarely the style of Qie costume, after all, but an ex- aggregation of it or n erode way of wearing it that makes it a mark for criticism. Even then, custom has an almost infallible way of making the wrong thing seem right when it comes to the cut of the garment, i Costume plays a big part in mak­ ing history real. Julius Caesar, Henry VIII. Napoleon. Prince Hal. j ALShuth. or Herbert-Hoover, there's nothing of character or action in any | one of them that can be disassociated i from the peculiar fashion of his- dress. Just what men and women wore makes the vividness of history's ! pageant. — The Greek* and the Rn- , mans, the Goths and Britons, the men I and women of Mediaeval days, the people of the Empire In France, the early Victorians, our own women of the swaying and billowy fid's or of the uncomfortable and curiously girt 70's, all are visualized by their clothes. History would be a much loss m l. orful and charming thing without the picturesque absurdities of its - cos ­ tumes. Yet .proper men and women since the world began have railed at the vanity and foolishness and scandal ­ ous immodesty of the new styles, and still do rail. We are now at the turn of a new reason. The latest costume outrage waits its chance at being n horrible example. THE SINCLAIR DECISION The United States Supreme Court's decision in the Sinclair case settles the argument as to authority of a committee of the United States Sen ­ ate to pursue an investigation ord ­ ered by the Senate. Harry Sinclair was linked with the greatest scandal in the life of this nation. He and his colleagues suc ­ ceeded in concealing from the gov ­ ernment facts which may have led to greater revelations. Important wit ­ nesses remained out of the count ry, ~ To the public mind Mr. Sinclair's refusal to answer the committee ’ s questions had the appearance of de- fianpe. Adverse comment aplenty was heard from the unthinking of the futility of our laws and\he ease with which the rich may escape punish ­ ment*.. < But ’ now the court of last resort has spoken. Mr. Sinclair must serve his term in prisop. Where there was criticism of our courts there will now be approval. Our courts are not ni- fiuenced by the opinions of the mass, but now and then the opinions of the two coincide. They do in the Sin ­ clair case. THE SPIRIT OF THE PRESS On# of ths most interesting Automobile features of the automobile In- War dustry today la, we believe, the competlUon among American manufacturer*, notably General Motor* and the Ford company, In Europe. General Mo­ tor* haa Invested 130,000.000. In the Adam Opel company of Germany, which make# nearly SO per cent of all the automobiles manufac ­ tured In that country, an Investment which rAeana that all the resource* of engineering and production knowledge possessed by the American group will now be at lb* disposal of the- German*. They have, moreover. 24 assembly plants located In different Import ­ ant European commercial centers, and a sell ­ ing force of eome fl.000 salesmen to cover the ground. The Ford, company were earlier comers to Europe, and It la no doubt their great suc ­ cess which ha* prompted General Motors to such .expansion. Ford haa not been In the habit of buying existing plants, but haa built his own producUon centers. His plan of form ­ ing separate companies, retaining 60 per cent of the stock, and aejllng the rest la the dif ­ ferent countries has met with great aucrnt Thus Europe Is. being treated to the spec ­ tacle of jabot tup-enormous^ wjaltby Am- ertcim-eoncerns-can do. European automo ­ bile manufacturers are naturally not pleased, and attempts have been made to form or ­ ganizations somewhat like General Motor*' among European companies, but so far no- amalgamatlon ha* been produced which can begin to rival the Americans. American car* have nn excellent reputation In Europe, and now that they are to be mads on the spot, without the added .coat of import, the outlook' Is even less bright for the European maker*. — Mount Vernon Argus. People who think they are The Law's ..married should not be too Technicality sure about It for the laws re ­ lating to marriage are very ■>rccl*e_and no matter what precaution one takes to be properly married, he never knows what complications may arise. Two yputiK people In New Britain. Conn., decided'to be married. They hod a big wed ­ ding and started on their honeymoon. They hod no suspicion that thero was anything wrong about the marriage but some Inter ­ ested party discovered that they were not legally married. It so happened that the ceremony was per ­ formed at- the famous Shuttle-Meadow Coun ­ try Club which is on the New Brltain-Berlln line. If they had picked out the right room they wpuld have been all right but they were wed In a room on the Berlin side. Their mar ­ riage license bad been procured In New Bri ­ tain and the Connecticut State law Inslau that marriages must be performed In towns where licenses are obtained. What an awful predicament. A happy cou- | pie on a honeymoon, destination not known, i and technically they wire no more married ! than If they had never seen a clergyman. This w-na all brought to the attention of the parents of the young people and they con ­ sulted lawyers. Happily the State Leglsla- tura was In session and this provided a solu ­ tion of the problem. ’ A bill wsa\ Introduced Into the Legislature | making the marriage legal nod both branch- , oo of the General Assembly paojed the mess- • lire under suspension of the rulwi and sent% j hurriedly to the Governor who signed It. Tbs' ! young people will return to find that they | were not really married when they thought ] they were but later by tb# grace of the Con- | nectlcut Legislature. — New Rochelle Stand- I nrd — Star. Two years ago Westchester j County County had a special transit com- Translt rolttee which made an exhaustive study of transit conditions, more f as to*the discharge of commuters in-Newr York City and the handling of home coming traffic. Definite recommendations . The report was filed with eoun- 1 ty ofOcials and the state. And there the mat ­ ter rested. The legislature had a chance this year to revive this all important matter and could hal-e done so by appropriaUng SSO.OOO so that a survey could be made of transit conditions ,ltt the metropolitan area as requested by the Port Authority of New York. The application was turned down and now the entire subject has txfcn relegated to a pigeon hole tor an ­ other year at least. County Engineer MacDonald stated' that j this was moat unfortunate, as It greatly de- ; lays reaching any definite solution to the I growing problem of congestion. In this re- ‘ 'spect he Is right. As we recall It. the county transit commission gave a most thorough ex ­ amination to the entire question and submit ­ ted a Iparccd report. This report should be reconsidered If at some future time the legis ­ lature finally decides to appropriate enough | money to have the entire problem gone Into thoroughly.

GUCSt\-^ THE SPIDER Westchester First (ConUnued From Pag* One.) la an example that ought to make particular Brains as Well ai Brawn . Captain Nsgell of the New York state police In an sddress before the Business Men's Club of PleusantvlUe stressed the need of brain work on the part of the police departments throughout the country. Confronted with the oomplexIUes of pre.ent day civilization as It was not enough thxr policemen be physically capable of performing their duties. He also stated that policemen like other humans wished to be. held In high regard. Holding them up as \bogey men ’ ’ to chil ­ dren might Inspire fear In their' hearts and cause them to obey but It reflects disastrous ­ ly.-. They are llkcly. i wa.-ow up regarding the police aa enemies rsther than as representa ­ tives of law and order. This attitude la to b*' deplored. Not alone does It hamper tha duly consUtuted authoritiea In performing their duties but It also builds up a disrespect for the law. This attitude should change. Thoee entrusted with enforcing our laws are entitled to the respect and help of every respectable elltxen.
