HAltMFBUItG, Pa., Jan. 8. - Former
Governor Hnmucl W. Pennypacker, act
ing chnlrman of tho Suite "Public Service
Commission, was put on the" defcnslvo
today by Edwin M. Abbott, representing
the United Business Men's Association,
In a wordy battle o cr the IS specifications
charging the commission with "miscon
duct In ofllce."
The acting chairman made vigorous de
fense of the action of tho comhilfslon
In conferring with representatives of the
railroads prior to tho Insunnco of Its de-cI-iIoiib
In the railroad pnrsongor rate In
Mr. Pennypacker declared the action of
his commission had been presented to tho
Publlo Service Commissions of every
State In tho Union nnd that IB of these
had written letters supporting tho action
of tho Pennsylvania body.
No rofcrence wns made to the other
Stoto Public Servlco Commissions by Mr.
Pennypacker., Ho did not say whethor
any of them considered tho commission
to have been wrong In Its action. His
statement about the 19 was made In sup
port of his assertion that the commis
sion wns within Its rights In granting n
hearing to tho railroad men.
POUND TABLES IN ANGER.
Commissioner Pennypacker, Interrupt
ing Mr. Abbott when ho nroso to speak,
asked whether or not ho was willing to
withdraw tho list of charges.
Immediately tho Btorm broke. Between
the pounding of fists on tho tables and
the angry exclamations of both men, It
became clear to spectators that tho
charges had thoroughly aroused the Ire of
tho commission. Mr. Abbott at tho samo
time loudly Insisted that he was willing
to substantiate tho charges.
Mr. Pennypacker declared ovory mem
ber of tho commission was willing to
stand back of Commissioner Johnson,
who made tho public admission that tho
railroads had been given advance notice
of tho decision. Sarcastically, ho added;
"Probably the serious reflections you
have made upon tho members of tho com
mission aro due to your lnoxpcrlenec."
Angry retort by Mr. Abbott hero Inter
rupted tho former Governor's comments
for several minutes, despite his repeated
attempts to continue.
When order was again restored tem
porarily, Mr. Pennypacker demanded to
know If the 15 questions would be with
drawn from tho commission's consideration.
After a word with Edward M. Martin,
another of tho commuters' attorneys, Mr.
Abbott consented. As n parting shot ho
declared that the charges against tho
commissioners would bo taken up Imme
diately with the senatorial Confirmation
COMMUTERS' CAMP DIVIDED.
Two distinct lines of argument wero
presented to tho commission for a re
hearing of the railroad passenger rato
From tho minute the session opened
It was obvious that tho attorneys repre
senting the commuters were divided Into
two camps,, none too friendly to each
other. One group of attorneys repre
sented Interests which havo been fighting
for the removal of the commission; tho
other group took pains to explain that
they had no part in the agitation against
tho commission on account of Its decision
of December 12, following tho hearing In
In the first group were Mr. Abbott, Ed
ward 1). Martin, Matthew Randall and
William T. Cooper. These mon sought a
general modification of tho recent deci
sion of the commission, particularly ex
tending tho time of the 100-trip ticket to
one J ear and the privilege of Its use by
all members of a family.
WANT WHOLE CASE REOPENED.
In the second group wero Ward W.
Plerson. Francis Chapman and Harold
S. Rhertz, representing the Germantowp
and Chestnut Hill Improvement Associa
tion; J. P. MacElree, Burgess of West
Chester, and C. A. Moore, of the Wynne
wood Civic Association. A reopening of
the entire rate case, with the privilege of
calling new witnesses and presenting new
data and statistics, was urged by these
The commissioners sitting were former
Governor Pennypacker, Emory R. John
son, Milton J, Brecht, S. LaRua
Tone and Acting Chairman Wallace.
Among those who represented the
railroads were D. N. Bell, general pas
senger agent of the Pennsylvania; R. J.
DeLong, assistant general passenger
agent; F. J. Fell, chief statistician; W.
D, Shaffer, counsel, and Henry W. Blkle,
assistant general counsel; William L.
Klnter, counsel for the Reading, and Ed
ward Ousterhaus, rate statistician.
CHALLENGE FROM PENNYPACKER.
Commissioner Pennypacker, at the con
clusion of Mr. Plerson'a argument, said:
"A new hearing, if granted, must be
based upon something new, Have you
or have you not any new evidence to
offer upon which we should order it at
this tlme7" t
"No, sir, I have not," replied Mr.
Plerson, "but that Is Just why we are
urging new hearing, so that wa may
gather the data and statistics which we
were unable to present at (he former
hearing, owing to the shortness of time."
"An application for a. new hearing on
after-discovered evidence is, then, what
you want," commented Mr, Penny
O. A. Moore, of the Wynnewood Clvla
Association, asked for an entire restora

and started his flrat tirade ot the day
Long before Mr. Sunday arrived nt the
University tho scene about the big gym
nasium gave ample evidence of the wel
como that was to bo accorded him. Tho
Btudent body seemed to (have forgotten all
else but "Billy" Sunday.
Many who heard the evangelist when h
spoke three times nt the University last
March, waited outside to get a glimpse
of tho baseball player-preacher, knowing
his voice has the power to carry to all
parts of the big gymnasium, and oven
those far off could hear him.
WAIT FOR THE EVANGELIST.
Meanwhile the line had begun to form
at the tabernacle at 11 o'clock for the
afternoon service, to start at 2 o'clock.
By noon hundreds of men and women
were in the long lines Btretchlng away
from the numerous entrnnces, patiently
waiting for tho opening of the doors.
Tho meeting at the University waB sup
posed to be for tho purpose of an address
by Mr. Sunday, not n sermon. Thero was
llttlo difference, however, except that tho
address was more picturesque, if possible,
than most of tho Sunday sermons.
"One half of an educntlon Is not what
you learn In tho books, but what you

This statement ho made when discuss
ing the benefit to bo derived by the stu

After preaching for more than an hour
last night Mr. Sunday went homo nnd
doctored his throat In anticipation of the
big day before him. "Jack" Cardiff, the
trainer, massaged his neck and the evan
gelist took special care not to permit a
draught of air to strike him, so that his
return to normal might not be retarded.
He ate a hearty breakfast of buck
wheat cakes and sausage and then
went to his study, where he began
to go through stacks of mall, Hundreds
of letters were received, and among them
was one extending him the courtesies of

SEES NO REASON FOR DELAY.
Robert D. Drlpps, Common Councilman
from tho 22d Ward, said today he could
seo no treason why the special election
should be held as late as Juno 1.
"I favor action on the transit matter
at the earliest posslbb date," Mr. Drlpps
said. "Director Taylor plans to lnstltuto
his work of sewer relocation In March,
I understand. That work, made possible
by tho $500,000 Item In tho Jll, 300,000 loan,

said, "It Is probable that the central city

COUNCILS AND THE .ORDINANCES.
Tho two ordinances sent to Councils
yesterday by Director Taylor and Intro
duced by John P. Connelly, chnlrman of
the Finance Committee, provide for sub
mltting the proposition of Increasing, the
debt of tho city by $30,000,000 to tho voters
at a special election. That election would
decide whether or not the city shall have
tho high-speed lines.
Tho ordinances have been referred to
tho Committee on Finance. The action
of that committee, which reflects the at

Indicate whether a continuance of oppo

whether the welfare of the citizens Bhall
A prompt favorable report of the
Finance Committee on tho ordinances will
place the measures on Councils' calendar
for early passnge orf rejection.
John P. Connelly, chairman of the com
mittee, suggested that tho special election
might bo held on Tuesday, Juno 1. That
suggestion Is regarded as a desire to In
troduce a delay to the inception of tho
project during tho present administration.
n me special election Is not held bo
fore June 1, tho necessary legal certifica
tion of the eleatlon, the subsequent adver
tising of tho Intent of the city to create
the loan, and the requisite legislative pro
cedure In Councils would delay making
the money actually available until late in
The summer recess of Councils, coming
shortly after the date Connelly has named
for the election, would add to the delay
and Introduce new complications.
ELECTION TO HASTEN PROJECT.
By a special election in March, It Is
pointed out, tho legal processes Involved
before making the authorized loan sub
ject to appropriation could be terminated
entirely before Councils begin their sum
mer recess. The appropriation bills could
be passed and work on the transit pro
ject proper could be Instituted In con
Junction with tho pellmlnary steps in
relocating tho sewers In the central part
of the city that will be begun In March

who Indorsed Director Taylor's plans for
rapid transit at an enthusiastic meeting
in Textile Hall, Kensington avenue and
Cumberland street Before thq meetlnij
the transit enthusiasts (araded through
the principal streets of Kensington.
Director Taylor was greeted warmly
and, aft or explaining the routes of the
proposed high-speed lines and how they
could be obtained, he reminded his hear
ers that an elevated line would be more
economical and practicable for the North
east district than a subway, which would
cost from three to nve times as much as
"What wo want immediately," the Di
rector ueciareu, -is lavorame action by
