Just a Few Minutes, But
Job Is Perfected Police
Another thief today eluded the vigilance
of tho plaln-clothcs policemen scattered
nbout Germantown nnd got away with
S1-0O In cash and jowelry before break
fast. The victim Is Benjamin StokcY.
CG0S JlcCnllum street, a lumber dealer.
Mr. Stoker left his home early to go
to his office, and Mrs. Stoker was away
fiom the house a few minutes on an
errand. Two maids were In tho laundry.
The thief stopped in a few minutes after
Mrs. Stoker left. He used a side win
dow that had been left open.
A buffet In the first floor was ransacked
In an Incredibly short space of time,
and $1200 in cash and Jewelry stolen.
When Mrs. Stoker returned a few minutes
later she found everything topsy-turvy.
She notified tho Germantown police sta
tion, but the squad of bluecoata hurried
lo the scene failed to find any trace of
HOMES SMAU ARSENALS
Hitherto peaceful homes In German
town, Logan, Olney, Brnnchtown and Oak
Lane are now being turned Into small
arsenals. Nearly everybody Is buying a
revolver and learning how to use It, and a
mass-meeting of citizens of Logan will bo
hold next Thursday night at which plans
will be suggested to form a vigilance
At least MO men are expected to Join
the vigilance committee, according to
William II, Bateman, the organizer.
Fifty men each night will patrol tho
stieets In conjunction with tho police.
They will endeavor to be sworn In as spe
cial policemen and will continue tho work
until Councils appropriate enough money
to supply tho district with enough blue
coats. Three boys arrested today at Oakdalo
street and Germantown avenue were
found to have about $160 worth of Jewelry
in their possession that corresponds .In
description to the loot taken from homes
In Logan, tho police say. The lads are
Charles Braver, 10 years old, of 2537 Car
lisle street; Edward Magorldge, 16 years
old, of 2563 North Mole street, and Henry
McKenna, of 2537 Carlisle street.
Special rollcemen Richardson and Mal
lcn, of the Park and Lehigh avenue sta
tion, caught the lads, who were sent to
City Hall for a hearing. Lleuetnant
Boyer, of the Germantown station, thinks
the "boys may know something of the
Logan and Germantown thefts.
Two other lads caught this afternoon
also werq sent to Central Station for ex
amination. A watch and some Jewelry
stolen from the homo of W, J. Bean,
S226 North 17th street, were found In their
possession, the police say. They an

Since Christmas 36 homes have been
visited by thieves in the Logan sec

to the absorbing discussion or me unwei

4WK North Uth street stepped out on
the porch ot her home this morning and,
noting, a neighbor across the street, called
"Hello, have you been robbed yet?"
Similar conversations are heard In all
parts of the terrorized district. Some
times the person questioned has been
visited by the thieves, In which event
the answer Is "not since last week," or
"not since yesterday."
SQUARE MILE BEAT A "CINCH."
The Branchtown station has 66 police
men working in three shifts to cover the
territory of Branchtown, Logan, Olney,
nart of Oak Lane and part of German
town. Some of the men are mounted.
The beats of the policemen rarely are
less than a square mile In area and some
run as high as a square mile and a half.
The bluecoats consider a square mile
beat a "cinch." .
Residents of Logan take exception to
Superintendent of Police Robinson's
statement that there Is no objection to
the lighting In the district. They have
no objection to oner ia ma wui. h'
police ot the Branchtown station, who
do the best they can. according to house
holders. Councils Is blamed for Its fall

for an additional appropriation to pro

general demand for action by Councils
will be made at the mass-meetlns

PAVLOWA'S STANDARDIZED ONE-STEP
Forward and back walk. Especially posed for by Mile. Anna Pavlowa
and M. Clustine.
By ANNA PAVLOWA
I am taking up, us tho first of the
dances to be Included In my "standardi
zation," the one-step. I do so, even
though I recognize that this dance has
many undcslrnblo features. My reason
Is that tho one-step has qualities emi
nently American, nnd that certain
changes make It In some respects a very
desirable social dance.
The plain "one-step." as It grew from
tho evolution of the old and vulgar "tur
key trot," consisted of a somewhat vig
orous dance based on a continual repeti
tion of the count, "one-two," "one-two,"
Dancers swayed the bodies from side
to side as they moved and sagged at the
knees. They violated virtually every prin
ciple of good dancing. The one-step I
am about to advocate will be different
from the one-step of even last season
save In two respects.
iBefore beginning It tho partners must
remember a few things which will bo of
great help. The first 13 pot to swing tho
torso from side to side, or the shoulders.
Avoid anything lllfo a swagger. Do not
swing the armi In time to the music,
nnd do not hump over ns though in se
Stand erect v.lthout stiffness, and as
mime tho "closed" position. The cavalier
will take In his left hand his lady's right
and carry their arms at shoulder height,
In a manner that keeps their hands near
their bodies and guarding ngalnst col-
Vhe one-step I advocate Is divided Into
six divisions. The first Is either four or
eight counts forward for the lady and
back for the cavalier, performing a bodly
turn equal to one-quai ter of a clrclo s arc,
The second division Is a side glide that
may be used either for a half or complete
turn. The third division Introduces a
polka variation, and is executed by the
partners In a "half open" chasse. In wh ch
the partnera change positions from side
to side, while divisions five and six con
sist of more original figures. One quite
tango-llko and the other nlmost Uus-
"'in' the first division of my standard
ized one step, I start the dancers with
the lady moving forward on the first
count of the music instead of backward,
as Is customary. The accompanying pho
tograph, for which I posed with my part
ner. la the salute which comes on the
fourth beat of the muslo Just before the
"one" count. t , .
The lady, who must move forward on
her right foot as the cavalier starts
back on his left, stands on the right
foot, and points the toe of her left, Just
as her partner raises her right arm with
his left. This raising of arms nnd poising
cornea on the final beat of any musical
measure. It would bo counted: "One,
two, three, salute, begin," the salute com
ing on the fourth count of the nn)sic, and
the actual start of the one-step com
roenclng on the next, or first, musical
beat In the measure.
Moving forward, first on her left foot,
followed by the right, the lady may go
either four or eight steps, according to
the pleasure of her cavalier. Her first
step will be about eight or. nine Inches,
and as the ball of the foot slides along
the floor the dancer should permit both
her knees to dip bllghtly, barely enough
to give a graceful dropping of the body.
If the steps be eight eonsecutiva ones in
the one direction, the lady will dip on
the fifth count pi-ocUely as he has on the
first. . .......

The second, third and fourth steps In
each unit of fours (on which the one-step
Is based) will be perhaps two inches less,

So ns the dancers progress it Is ONE3,
two, three, four; ONE, two three, and so
forth. The cavalier, starting backward
on I1I.3 left foot In a step upon the ball
of his foot ot from eight to nine Inches,
makes a slight dip on both knees, to cor
icspond with that of his lady.
The first four backward steps of the
cavalier and the" forward steps of the
ladv should pioceed In the straight line
of direction. But If the cavalier decides
to continue with ho next four steps In
tho same direction, he will, during those
four steps, turn himself and his lady to
his left. On the eighth count tho couple

Representatives of Many
Wards Announce Desire
to Have Citizens Decide

Nearly every member of Councils

they may vote for a loan to start the

Only two or three Councllmen declined
to say where they stood on tho question.
These were Common Councilman John V.
Connelly, who Introduced the resolution
providing for n special election, nnd
Select Councilman Charles Soger, of the
7th Ward, ho professes to have the
welfare ot the city nt heart.
Fortunately, most of the Councllmen
realize that tho citizens are moused nnd
the majority ot members of both
chnmbcrs aio nwmo qt the fnct that
subterfuges will not be accepted. The
Kvi'.nino LnDnnn Iuib placed ni.my of the
municipal legislators on iccord nnd thoio
whom views cannot be learned will be

OPINIONS OF COITNCII.MRN.
Tho following opinions glc nn Indica
tion of where a largo number ot the
councllmen stnnd on the question:
'IT ho quicker tho betlcr." said Select
Councilman Henry It. Shoch, or the 47th
Ward "I am for nnvthlng that benefits
tho city nt Inrgc. Ot course 1 fnor an
election In March; I don't bellcvo In
delnylng anything that wilt bring bene
ficial results to the city. Let us have
rapid transit by nil means."
This wns nlso the view of Select Coun
cilman William It. Richer, ot the 42d
Ward. "There has been too much delay
already on tho transit work," ho said.
"Tho people want rapid transit and we
know that It's needed. The money should
be appropriated nt the earliest possible
moment and tho construction work
"Let us have the high speed system,"
said Select Councilman John A. Levis, of
tho "3d Wnrd. "The sooner It cornea the
better It will be for all of us. If an elec
tion In March Is tho quicker way to get It
then I nm for the March election."
Common Councilman Frederick Green
wood, of tho 37th Ward, Is of tho same
opinion. "Wo should have an early elec
tion ; ono In March would give plenty of
time and then we would get rapid transit
results this year."
WOItK FOB UNEMPLOYED.
"I don't think there will be a member
of Councils against tho March election,"
said Select Councilman William J. Har
rington, of tho Fourth Ward. "We all
know that It's a good thing, so we should
get up as much speed as poslble on this
thing. Then, too, tho construction of tho
system will glvo work to thousands of
Anv delay In action Is opposed by Com
mon Councilman Daniel Cahlll, of the
4th Ward. "Juno would be entirely too
lato to hold nn election to get results
this vcar," he said. "We should get busy,
as tho way has been paved to start things
Speed Is nlso advocated by Common
Councilman William A. Miller, of the 33th
Ward. "Wo should have an election in
iMarch," he said, "and glvo the citizens
what thev want."
"Push It through," declared Common
Councilman William J. Mllllgan, of the
15th Ward. "Why wait later than March
when there Is no necessity for it?"
"Mnrch by all means," was the reply
of Common Councilman Alexis J. Llmc
burner, of the 2Sth Ward.
The same sentiment was expressed by
Common Councilman Peter Gallagher, of
the 21th Ward. "I favor a March elec
tion," he said, "why say more?"
"Give us rapid transit ns soon as pos
sible." said Common Councilman David
Frankentleld, of the 4tth Ward. "There
Is no cause for waiting."
"Mnrch by all means." said Common
Councilman Charles Gilt, of the 31th
Ward, when asked his views on the tran
Select Councilman Dr. William D.
Bacon, of the 44th Ward, said: "I favor
an eaily start on the proposed rapid
transit system, . and If an election In
March will bring that about, then that
Is what I will vote for."
ALL EXPRESS SIMILAR VIEWS.
A somewhat pessimistic view Is held
by Dr. George. C. Parry. Common Coun
cilman of the'2lth Ward. He said: "No
election Is needed. There Is no use of
bucking the Organization. If It does not
vant the election until June It will not
be held until then. I do not see any use
In spending $75,000 for nn election. It
will not do any good."
Common Councilman John It. Mine
hart, of the 22d Ward, said: "For three
years we havo heard nothing but transit.
Now we all have a chance to give real
action and get results. Of course I favor
the March election.
The "get busy" policy was also In
dorsed by Common Councilman Prlngle
Borthwlck, of the 2M Ward. "Let us
get tho roads built," he said. "That
means that I am for an election In Starch
which will brlpg speedy results."
This sentiment was echoed by Common
Councilman John SI. Flynn, of .the 33th
ward. "We should have an election in
March by all means," he said, "then we
can get the work started."

"LONG WAY TO LEAGUE ISLAND."
