CONVICTS WHO PRAY
IN DINGY LOFT WANT
TO BUILD A CHAPEL
All They Need at Peniten

Prisoners Kneeled in Dark
Who wilt Blva a bag of cement worth

State Penitentiary and hetp mates It
possible for them to construct a build
In where they may meet for church
services and other purposes?
The convicts celebrated this Christmas!
In a small, dim and depressing- loft over
one of the prison storage building. They
want a better holiday next year, and
they hare told Warden Itobert J. Mc
Kenty they will construct a modern con
crelo meeting hall, capable of seating

tiary, If the material, costing about fSOOO,
"It's an outrage that we haven't some
place where the men can get together for
ft good time onca In a while," said War
den MoKenty today. "It spoiled my
Christmas to see them waiting In line to
get Into that dark, disreputable loft to
do their worshiping. X wish tome of the
men who are going to the Legislature
could have been there and seen the con
vict kneeling on the dusty rough board
In the dark. They would get me an ap
propriation for a building then.
'The loft In question Is so. full when
WO convicts are In It that movement Is
almost impossible," he said. "It Is
reached by a narrow stairway, up which
the prisoner have to (lie one at a time.
It would not be tolerated by law a a
meeting place for any but convicts."
Warden McKenty was told about ths
presentation yesterday by William A.
Brady of Owen Davis' new play "Sin
ners" before the prisoners of the Sing
Hint. N. T.. Jail.
"Yes, I know about that, and the In
mates here learned about It, too, and
they're very envious," he eald. "We have
had offer from the best theatrical com
panies that ever visited Philadelphia.
They have agreed time and again to come
out hero and give performances, but we
have had to decline overy time because
we have no place for such production."
Bequests for an appropriation for a new
building have been made ori numerous oc
casions by Warden McKenty ttnd the
Board of Inspectors. They havo always
been denied. The prison Is, officially, con'
ducted on the principle of separate con
finement, and under this rule the prison

RECALLS OLD DAYS
Prospective Departure of
Two Vessels Reinaugu-
rates Glory of Stars and
Stripes on Seven Seas.
Glorious days, when the American flag
was supreme upon the seven seas, will be
recalled In a few days when two big
American square-rigged sailing vessels
will unfurl their clouds of canvas at this
pert and sail for Japan, with cargoes of
petroleum In wooden Inclosed tin cases.
Tears ago this trade was the most
thriving of the port. Hundreds of wind
jammers, filled with all of the romance of
the sea, Inspirations to writers of sea
tales, came to and left this port each
week. Today only a few of these vessels
remain, and the number under the ritara
and Stripes can be counted on one's (bi
tiers. Two of tho latter are the Dlffiko
and John jEna, now loading here for their
voyages to the Far East.
The Blrlgo Is one of the famous ves
sels of tho Bewail fleet of steel, Bath
built square-riggers. With her sister
ships, the Arthur Sewatl, Edward Sewall,
William P. Fryo and Ersklne M. PHelps.
she has written sea history.
The Arthur Sewall, which left here sev
eral years ago, has never been heard from
since'. It Is rumored In shipping circles
that the other vesoels, now bound for
England from the Pacific coast with
grain, are to load oil here for the land
of the Mikado.
The revival of the trade Is due to
the scarcity of steamships to meet the
urgent demand of business. The war has
removed about 5.000.0M tons of ships from
the seas. They have either been in
terned, sunk or commandeered. The
sailing vessels are getting high freights
for the transportation of the oil. It is
Bald that the price paid each vessel leav
ing here will be about J35.0CO. It is es
timated vthat the run will require from
60 to 100 days. The ships will return in
This latter fact recalls to veteran sea
followers of the port, that there la a
wharf on the Camden side of the Dela
ware Diver, above Kalghn'a Point, made
up entirely of earth from all parts of
the globe. This dirt was carried there
In the old days as ballast and discharged
upon arrival Today the vessels carry
water ballast which can readily be
pumped into the river,
Romance surrounds the John Ena.
She was named after a Hawaiian Chin
ese and was built in dlasgow She was
admlted to American registry when the
United States annexed the "pearl islands
of the Pacific." Three years ago Captain
Olsen, master of the vessel, married a
pretty Qermantown girl In this olty. She
sailed with him on the following day
for a honeymoon voyage, whlob. lasted
one year and extended to Hlto. Hawaii
and back, via the treacherous reaches of
fins accompanies her husband on all
of his trips and will make the run to
Japan. Mrs. Olsen knows as much about
navigation today as her husband. A year
ago she saved the ship and all hands on
board by her prompt action in seising
the wheel which a frightened seaman had
deserted In a storm.
Jack; London and bis wife made a voy
age 'round the Horn on the Dirigto sev
eral years ago During the run to San
SVancisco he completed his story, "The
Valley of the Moon."
For' many years this decadent type of
clipper ship PilJ between this port and
Hawaii In the ska.r trade. The opening
of the Panama Canal doomed this busi
ness, as It was not possible for them to
compete against steamships using the
great waterway. Because of the area of
ealms on the western approaches to the
canal the towage fees beoatne prohibitory

these stately square-riggers was at an I

PR0BLEM IN MAINTAINING
CITY'S DOLLAR TAX RATE
Joint Committee of Councils Must
Faco Increased Expenses.
How Philadelphia may continue the $1
tax rate and at the same time meet the
increased expenses that will be caused
by Interest and sinking fund charges of
the millions that are to be borrowed Is
n problem which will be considered by
a Joint committee of Councils.
Tho joint committee is headed by
John P. Connolly, the chairman of the
Finance Committee of Councils end
chief exponent of a continued Jl tax
rate. It was named to consider legis
lation affecting Philadelphia that will be
Introduced at the coming session of the
The feasibility ot amending the "pay-as-
ou-go" act of 1370 and adding about
$1,000,000 to the annual revenue of the
city by permitting the City Controller
to cstlmato closer the city's revenues Is
being considered. At present the 11,000,000
by. which the annual revenue Is under
estimated goes Into the revenues of the
succeeding year as a surplus.
Connelly has announced further that
by elimination of examptlons of per
sonal property valued at J250.O0O.00O from
taxation and by greater vigilance In as
sessments, the revenue from personal
property taxes can be Increased to
$5,000,000. In 1914 there was $530,000,000
of personal property taxed, yielding
range the desk. I will be in in a moment."
When Hassam Alt finished his note he
destroyed the blotter and the sheets of
paper which had underlain that upon
which lie had written. This note he gave
to the servant. He felt no worry about
this not. The man who received It
would Immediately destroy It. To keep It
and use It In the aim of blackmail would
only tighten the rope about his neck.
As has doubtless been surmised by this
time Hassam All was a master criminal.
They say that every man who commits
a crime leaves something behind. Has
sam All had winnowed down his risks
until they were almost negligible. Every
man who worked for htm did so under
the unwritten contract of life or death.
Nearly every tool Hassam All had stood
under the shadow of death. That was
principally why nothing ever Jed the trail
to his house. There was among the va
rious cliques over which he held sway
no ordinary crook; the porch climber, the
yeggman. the forger, the pickpocket had
no standing among these men. They were
all more or less men of scientific attain
ments In whom the criminal instincts
had been born, not created by environ
ment. At 8 o'clock Amed came Into the myi
tis room and announced that two gen
tlemen wished to see him. Amed was
bidden to bring them forthwith. They
were old men, hawk featured, with high
foreheads and brilliant eyes despite their
apparent antiquity. They greeted Has
sam Ali respeottully, but there was noth
ing servile In their attitudes. They needed
Hassam Ali, who In turn needed them.
Thus they were equals.
"You have It still?" Inquire Hassam
Yes, we have never dared to patent It
We are holding It until some great war
For halt an hour conversation was
carried on In a monotone. At the end
Hassam All sighed drew out bis wallet
and gave each man a roll of bank note,
eareful to observe that there were no
gold eerilteates. As the vllltors stood up,
about ta make their departure. Hassam
All bade them wait a moment He sum
moned Amed and ordered him to bring
