ANNVILLE, Pa., Sept. 21,-Battered
and bruised but happy, the members of
tho Lebanon ' Valley College football
team returned to school today after their
successful stand against the Carlisle
Indlnns yesterday. Coach Guyer gave
the team a day's vacation today. To
morrow tho team starts Its regular rou
tine work for the game next Saturday
when they meet the Carlisle Indian Re
serves. Although defeated yesterday, the play
ers consider their showing a vlrtunl
victory over the Indians. They out
played Coach Warner's team and forced
the playing during most of the time.
Twice they forced the Indlnns to their
two-yard line, but each time the offi
cials caught the runner out of bounds
and the Indians were given the ball.
The showing made yesterday Is better
than ever-before In the school's history
and hopes are being entertained for a
championship team this season.
Last night huge bonfires were built on
the campus and the students, male and
co-ed, danced around the flames, singing
their songs of victory. When considered
the short time that the local collegians
have been practlclslng their showing In
yesterday's game was nlmost wonderful.
Coach Warner congratulated Coach Guyer
on the excellent showing of his team
and declared that their work was equal
to any seen on the Carlisle field In years.

H0PPE PLAYS INMAN
AT MIXED BILLIARDS
Bach day sees a further brightening
of the financial situation. From Boston
came the announcement today that the
committee representing Investment houses
dealing In unlisted securities, had lifted
the ban somewhat on general trndlng, and
has notified dealers that they may have
a wider latitude In security transactions.
The committee, after conference with
the Stock Exchange Committee ot Five,
feels that conditions hnve fu Improved
that an Increased business Is warranted,
having In mind the spirit which has pre
vailed In the weeks which have passed
since the closing of the Stock Exchange,
and with tho following restrictions:
Trades above the closing prices of July
30tsniny be mode without submitting the
same to the committee.
Trades nt prices under the. closing
prices of July 30 should continue to be
submitted to the committee, who will take
Any public advertising should first be
approved by this committee, and for tho
time being circulars being sent out should
not quote prices.
Subscriptions to the $10n.(VM.n0O New
York city bond offering nmounted to
between two nnd three times the 50,
000,000 that was open to the public.
In view of the large number of appli
cations, the syndicate managers arc un
able to state what the flnnl allotments
will he. In order to distribute the bonds
as wldclv as possible, the method has
been followed of allotting all applications
up to $10,000 In full and also making full
allotments upon subscriptions received
from nbroad. The balance of the bonds
will be allotted as nearly hb possible on
a pro rata basis.
The heavy applications for the 1916
nnd 1317 maturities will make It neces
sary for the syndlcnte managers to make
allotments of the various maturities pro
rata on a basis which will permit the
allotment of approximately 30 per cent,
on tho applications above J50.OO0. Other
wise those who have applied for the
longest term bonds would receive noth
ing more than a nominal allotment.

An announcement by the company calls
attention to the fnct (hat since January1

freight departments has been very un
satlsfartory, nnd that Hie company has
not fully earned Its fixed charges for the
period which ended .lulv SI. t'nder nrdl
nars' operating conditions, It m'ght tie
reasonably anticipated that the deficiency
would be made Up during the remain

The European war, however, has
brought the entire ocean transportation
situation to an extremely unsettled con
dition nnd tins necessitated the complete

says it Is, therefore, Impossible to fnrm

of 10 cents a bushel for freight cartage,

To vote on the appiovnl of a refund
ing and improvement mortgage cover
ing the railroad properties, rights and
franchises, a special meeting of the
stockholders of the Erie Railroad will
be held on October 13.
President Harrison, of the Southern
Railway, wants the next annual meet
ing of the company, which will be held
on October 13, to be "more than the
conventional routine." and looking to
ward this end he has sent a letter to
stockholders asking their co-operntlon.
Stockholders are Invited to ask questions
of the management.
"The only hope for our railroads. If
they are to remain under private owner
ship, Is that there be an Immediate ad
vance allowed In their passenger and
freight rates," said B. F. Bush, presi
dent of the Missouri Pacific and tho
Denver nnd Rio Grande Railroads, In
an address before the Missouri Pacific
Association. "A moderate advance in
the rates that would afford the railroads
the desired revenue would not appre
ciably Increase the prices of any com
modity to the consumer."
The New Hampshire Public Service
Commission has denlerl the application
of the Boston nnd Maine Railroad and
the Grand Trunk Railway for permission
to Increase passenger mileage rates from
2 to 2i cents a mile.
Rate cases involving allowances tn Bn.
called industrial or tap lines for hauling
cement In the eastern producing district
will be taken up by the Public Service
Commission of Pennsylvania early In Oc
tober. Important questions affecting this
and other commodities will be raised.
The new north and south route of the
Hill lines between the northwest and
Galveston, which affords a saving of 1'ft
miles In distance. Is to be put in opera
tion November 1 with a through train
service, and the understanding is that
the Trinity nnd Brazos Valley will pass
Into full possession of the Hill interests
at the termination of its receivership.
The Pennsylvania, through a holding
company, is acquiring a block of Unci
In Buffalo as a site for a terminal
market similar to those It operates in
Philadelphia, Harrisburg and Pittsburgh
