Plans for Municipal Sta
dium Must Be Well De
fined If 1916 Games Are
to Be More Than a
Dream, Says Berlet.
Business Men's Committee's
Activities Have Paved Way
for Passage of an Ordinance
by Councils Providing for
City Athletic Field.
Plans for a municipal stadium must be
Wei) under way before Philadelphia can
offer sufficient Inducements to biing the.
IMS Olympic Games here. In tlio opinion
Of E. J. Borlot, chilli man of the business
men's committee which has taken tlio
Initiative In working for the piojcct.
'We must lose no time In arranging for
tho 'bowl, " he sold this morning, "If
we are lo make a stiong bid for tho In
ternational athletic meet. We must hae
definite plans If they are to have weight "
Effort of tho committee duiltij the List
few months has paved tho way for tho
successful passauc of an ordinance us
SOOn ns one can bo Introduced In Coun
cils Many Councllmcn have been told
of the stadium plan, even before (he
chance to bring the Olympics to this tlty
came nlong. They have piofc3sed entire
nympathy with the Idea, and tho Park
Commissioners have said the.v nie nudy
to assist tho movement to have the sta
dium erected on the J3d and Thompson
streets site, on the Schuylkill rtlvcr bank
north of tho Glrard avenue bridge
Doubt as to the holding of any Olympic
names next year, however, wns exprcsed
by George F. Pawling, Philadelphia
representative of tho American Olympic
Committee. No olllclal Information has
been received by the American Commit
tee, he said, although a definite decision
to hold the event In this country would,
as tho usual procedure, be communicated
Immediately to the committee of which
he Is a member
"I doubt If It would be plivsicillv posI
bie to handle a set of Olympic games In
131 nnywhere." he said "No one who
has never taken part In the mnnmrement
ot oven an oidlnary largo athletic nuet
can know the enormous amount of detail
work Involved. If these woild games
were to be held next year, the preliminary
steps should be completed now.
"The management of an Oljinple sei-Us
Is not a simple matter of sending out
Invitations for the thousands of athletes
to assemble at a certain spot Thousand?
of letters must be exchanged with ath
letic bodies all over the world Arrange
ments without number must be made for
transportation, housing and entertnlnlng
the corteatants I am afraid we aie
chasing a wlll-of-the-wlsp In this Idea
of holding the 1916 games heie 1 doubt
If they will be held anywhere."
Tho business men's committee, however,
will proceed as rapidly as possible with
preparations for making Philadelphia the
choice of the American Olympic Commit
tee, In the belief that enterprising meth
ods will make n 1916 meet In this city
an actuality, with all the advertising
value which It would have. The commit
tee will meet on Tuesday. Immediately
following the return of Guy Gandnkor.
the secretary, who Is out of the clt Spe
cific plans will bo outlined at that time
Dr. It Talt McKenzle. a member of the
American Olympic Committee, said that
eneigetic work by (he ofllelals of the meet
would result In Its being held at the
scheduled time, once this city was selected.
Dr. McKenzle said that diligent effort
by public-spirited Phlladelphlans would
make it possible to convince the commit
tee of the advantages of staging the af
fair In this citj
"As for the benellts to the city, too
much cannot be said," he remaiked "The
advertising value of tho event. If properly
handled, would be tremendous, because
the name of our city would be carried
to every city and hamlet In the world."

feature. After referring to tho In
oi eased sales of Bibles and tho wave of
religious enthusiasm he said is Hweepln
over the city, he reiterated that thn law
cannot be swayed by religion, nor .'ii
tnUBiusm, not public opinion, that it lo
mains as It hue been di.iwn, to be In
terpreted accordingly b) the Judges.
Precedent was shattered In another case
b Judges Staake and Patterson when
they virtually started the trial of a
man who had been indicted for con
spiracy, as the result of a remonstrance
filed against the renewal of his saloon
license. Heretofore, In the case of a
saloonkeeper, who has been Indicted, ap
plying for a renewal, the court has post
poned action on the license until after the
trial of the indictment.
The saloonkeeper in this instance Id
nton K. Abraltls, of 413 North 9th
ttreet. Indicted Jointly with Italph Flshei,
familiarly IcnoVvn in the tenderloin as
"Millionaire detective," for conspiracy to
extort money from a crippled cobbler,
Pominlck Stefron, of UA! Itlilge avenue
According to counsel for Abraltls, Fls'ner
Is lesponslble for the failure of the case
to come up for trial In the regular order
The former deteotlve Is now said to be
spending his time on a farm, and mean
time doing all in his power to have the
indictment quashed. Gossip in the
License Court toduv was to the effeet
that Fisher never wants to Bee a big
city or a bright light again,
Itemopstrance against the renewal or
Abraltls's license was filed by the 1-uvv
and Order Society, on the ground of the
indictment. Instead of postponing action
the court decided to look Into the con
spiracy charge and started what amounts
to a trial ot the case. In which there
Will be no decision except the action the

They took him to Fisher's ofllce, adjoin

Abraltls said he might escape prosecution
by paying Fisher $S0. Stefron refused to
do this and the next morning appeared
lor a hearing before Magistrate Hmely
and was held In M0 ball He did not

Abraltls then took the stand, and said
Fisher had a warrant for Stefron's ar
