CITIES' HOME RULE
i THREATENS HEADS
OF "WATER TRUST"
Franchises
Jen Holding
Worth Millions Hear
Warning at Atlantic City
Convention.
ATMN'TI CITY, Oct. 22. Frank ad
mission that tho Pennsylvania public
utilities oft has created n water power
trust In Hint State, unassailable so long
s, the act remains unchanged, and a
naming from C. kalttio Munson, genernl
eoutiel. of Wllllamsport, that a homo
rule fiBht Is browing, were sensational
developments In the annuat convention
of tl'C Pennsylvania Water Works As
sociation today.
"Water Imions" who hold franchises
Tvortli millions In all parts of the Key
atone Stite, heard the warning from the
VllllamFP""t counsel with Bcrlous fficcs.
JIany of them nre frankly alarmed ovor
the fight at York to demand better serv
ice from tho York Water Company. Tho
passing of the Penrose regime also was
n sore subject for heads of the more
powerful of the larger companies repre
sented In tho convention.
An eloquent peroration on the public
utilities act and tho Public Service Com
mission preceded Mr. Munson's warning.
"I think It fair to Bay," ho declared,
"that the people of Pennsylvania have
jiot been disappointed so far In the work
of tho commission. Its fairness has
teen clearly demonstrated. It Is bettor
for the corporations themselves to bo
under tho protection of such a body, for
thflr rights are safeguarded whore they
should be safeguarded. Municipal rivalry
with water companies never ha3 been
succc&sful In Pennsylvania, but It has
frequently icsulted almost disastrously
for vested rights."
The Wllllamsport attorney then pointed
out th.it under the present act no com
peting company, nor even a municipality
Itself, can Invade the territory of an ex
isting company without the consent of
the Stnto t'nmmltslou, which must "bo
convinced that scivlce has been Inade
quate rates too high or that there was
other good reason for disturbing the en
tire possession of tho field by the com
pany on the ground.
"But a movement Is now being orga
nized," he continued, stifling a ripple of
applause, "to give boroughs- whnt Is
called homo rule by taking control of
our companies awny from tho Tubllc
Service Commission mid lodging It In tho
hands of municipalities, perhaps animated
bv bias and prejudice. I have noted In
one of the nowspapers that candidates
arc being interrogated as to their willing
:ics to voto for homo "rule, and it In
evident that wo must bo prepared to fight
at Hiirrlsburg If ono of tho best features
of the public utilities law Is not to bo
destroyed.
"This act cannot bo honestly criticised.
I submit that If a corporation Is to bo
conti oiled by tho State It must nlso bo
protected In the enjoyment of Its fran
chises. I cannot believe tho people of
Pennsylvania will permit nn act so
wortny ns tins 10 lie emasculated. I am
not talking politics when I tay I do not
believe tho pcoplo can be fooled all tho
time."
The convention voiced Its npproval when
Jlr. Munson said that tho recent decision
of the L'tllltles Commission In tho Beth
lehem discount case, that companies are
Justified in inlying rates under excep
tional conditions and cutting them to
im-ct municipal compctltuin. was abso
luttlv fair iJo said ho was convinced
the attempt of York to forco the Installa
tion of water meters by ordinance under
power conferred by tho third-class city
code would be nullified by the courts
becaiibo It conflicted with the utilities act.
U. S. NAVY 18,000 MEN
SHORT OF FULL CREWS
Twelve of Thirty-three Ships Not In
Service Because Sailors Are Locking.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 22,-How 18,000 ad
ditional men would bo needed by the
American navy to man all of Its ships
for war was explained In a statement
Issued last night by Acting Secre
tary Itoosevclt, supplementing Secretary
Daniels' recent reply to published criti
cisms of tho navy's preparedness.
While admitting that 12 of the 33 bat
tleships cannot bo put In service on ac
count of the ahortngo of men, Mr. Itoose
vclt declared that In regard to ships and
equipment the navy Is In excellent shape.
llko Secretary Daniels, the acting
sccictnry maintained that battleships
still are tho paramount factors "In any
war In which tho belligerents are sepa
rated by great distances of water." Tho
Value of submarine In their present state
of development for coast defense purposes
and for offensive attacks within a short
radius was conceded.
"In regard to tho numbers of the of
ficers and men of tho navy," Mr. Roose
velt snld, "thorn has never been an at
tempt to hide the fact that although the
numbers are recruited up to the limit al
lowed by Congicss, wo have only suf
ficient men to man In nn adequate man
ner a portion of the vessels already built.
"At the present tlmo thrco second-lino
battleships, .two armored cruisers, four
fUst-class cruisers, one second-class
cruiser, two third-class cruisers, 21 dc-
stroycis, three monitors, five submarines,
one gunboat, three fuel ships and two
vessels of special typo are In commission
In reserve! that Is to say, they have on
board only from 25 to E0 per cent, of the
crows necessary to man them In caso
of war.
"Thero are also six second-line battle
ships, ono armored cruiser, one cruiser,
second class, and 14 torpedoboats which
aio In the condition technically called 'In
ordinary.' Those vessels aro manned by
from 10 to 20 per cent, of their regular
complements.
"Meanwhile the problem Is becoming
moro tllfTlcult, as time goes on, because of
the vessels under construction which
must shortly bo provided with crows.
T'oi Instance, during tho coming year,
two battleships, tho Oklahoma nnd
Nevada will take their places with the
fleet. Each of theso vessels will require
a complements nearly 1000 men each."

THE

pianio
TEie ANQELUS is the first and greatest of al
playing devices.
Many other kinds have sprming tup to seek to share
its fame, but there is still but one ANQELUS.
Whoever buys a player-piano to have music in the
home does so with the expectation, of a great comfort
and a great satisfaction. The expectation caSIs for the
sweet unfaltering interpretation of the compositions of
the world's greatest masters.
No cheap, "ha!fway " pianoplaying device w
satisfy this expectation ; there will always be
thing lacking.
There are certain tone shadings, certain tempo ex"
s, in all great musical compositions that .akn.
Sutely no player except the ANQELUS can reproduce.
The melodant and the phrasing lever of the ANQELUS
are wonderful devices for expressionexclusive and
