United Btatos might become Involved In
a struggle wltlr European powers.
Lined up on the side of adequate pre

United States, the Secretary of War and
the Secretary of the Navy. Behind them,
and with the power to. Increase the sUo
of tho army nnd navy, will be most of
tho Congressmen and Senators from tho
Northern Coast States and a scattering
few from Southern States along tho sea
board. This number will be augmented by- a.
phalanx from the Paclfla coast, whoso
realisation of the dangerous conditions of
the national defenses has been height
ened by the ever-present thought of a
Southern Democrats from tho Interior,
whoso constituents have .not reason to
fear tho immediate effect of Invasion
from the seaboard, and the great body
ot the Congressmen ind Senators from
the middle West aro expected to show
an apathy in their attitude toward ef
forts to tncreaso the military prepared
ness of the United States.
But that the pressure of the advocates
ot preparedness will be effective there
seems no doubt. Philadelphia Congress
men, besides those from Now: York. New
Jersey, Delaware and tho other seaboard
States, will probably form a solid' unit
to push the plan for ndequato defenses
for" tho United States.
MR. MOORE'S VIEWS.
Congressman J. Hampton Moore Is ono
of the Pennsylvanlans who -can be
counted upon to aid vigorously In ob
taining n greater army and navy. He
nnd a delegation of Congressmen from
New Jersey and Delaware returned only
last Friday from a trip down the, Dela
ware River and bay with a view of learn
ing the true condition of defenses for
Philadelphia and Camden.
"Wo find that If we do not put up bar
riers against foreign competition wo will
bo swamped In our trade conditions," said
Congressman Moore. "By the same token
If we- do not put up and maintain proper
defenses we may some day be overcome
In war. We do not lack patriotism or
spirit, but we grow indifferent to some of
our necessities because of our activities.
Take the fortifications around Philadel
phia. Why were they constructed? Old
;Fort Mercer, on the Jersey side nt what
WM,st now known as. Red Bank, and Fort
Mifflin, on the Pennsylvania side, below
League Island, were erected'ln tho days
lot Washington to protect Philadelphia,
which was then the Hrst city of the
United States, against a British Invasion.
"Tho easy assurance that we arc safe
In Philadelphia because we are so fur In
land calls to mind the fact that the British
hips occupied this harbor In the days of
Lord Howe and that he spent a somewhat
festive season In our midst that was
humiliating at least to the 'Father of His
Country' in the trying days of vnlley
Forge. In 18H a British admiral sailed up
tho Potomac River to Alexandria, which
Is further Inland than Philadelphia, and
marched over to the Capitol and burned It.
"As a matter of fact we are 'but slightly
better oft relatively to protect ourselves
'around Washington today than we were
"On tho Delaware River we havo three
.forts, one ot them supposed to be ut
terly unfit for effective service against
the modern guns of an enemy'u ship, be
low New (JDBtie. These rorts constitute our
i shield against foreign vessels that might
sail up tne uejaware way and River, and
at the present time they are manned by
103 officers and men who are not suffi
cient to keep the buildings, grounds,
guns and machinery free from rust and
LAND DEFENSES WEAK.
"If an enemy should not see fit to come
UP the Delaware RIve'r, but should land
troops, wiry, well-trained men, such as
fought in the Russo-Japanese war or
such as are now fighting In thei European
war. It would be a serious question
t whether they could be prevented from
I- rushing In hehlnd any one of the Dela
ware fortincauona ana taking posses
sion of them. Such an Invasion would
mean that Philadelphia with .its splendid
navy yard and Its various arsenals rtoh
I with Government stores and ammunition,
wouia neea immediate ueienso snouia
they not actually fall as prizes.
'The defenses of the lower Delaware.
while not enough so far as they go, and
insufficiently manned as they are, would
have very little advantage la the. way of
reinforcements or supplies through the
s Chesapeake and Delaware or the Dela
ware and Rarltan canals. The depth of
water In each ot these streams is In
sufficient to pass gunboats or subma
rines or suDDly boats, and yet the Chesa-
ireake and Dataware Canal, which is no
teller now man it was.wnen pompieiea

capital of the nation atthe call ot Presi

'what Phiiaaeipnia neeas is a uttio
pore asserttveness with respect to Its
own welfare. If the Philippines, which
have caused us much blood and treasure,
are worth large forces of American troops
to aid In setting up ine peopio in dusi

more should not -be overlooked. If 9W0

U. S. TO APPEAL CASE
AGAINST WATCH CO.
Government Will Insist on Dis
solution of Firm Before Su
An appeal to- the United States Supremo
Court was, taken today, by the Government
from the decision 'of Judge McPherson.
refusing to order the dissolution of tho
Keystone Watch Case Company as an Il
legal monopoly. The papers to perfect the
appeal were prepared by William T.
Chantland nnd Blackburn Esterllne,. spe
cial assistants to Attorney General Greg
ory and United States District Attorney
Francis Fisher Kane. They wero present
ed to Judge Bufflngton, who with Judges
McPherson and Hunt, heard the Govern
ment's complaint In this city. Notice ot
the nppe'al having been ncltnowledged by
John G. Johnson, chief counsel for tho
company, Judge BufTlngton made an
order certifying the case to the highest
Judge McPherson, writing for tho court,
filed his decision on January 2 last. He
decided that the testimony offered by
the Government was not sufficient to
warrant the dissolution of the company
ns a trust, but he did find that the com
pany had been using boycotting methods
against .dealers and had attempted to re
strict the sales of the Howard watch,
which It manufactured exclusively, and
these practices he ordered stopped by in
junction. The Intlmldatory methods of the com
pany were carried on through clrculara
sent to JobberB and retailers. The com
pany threatened to cut off "the supply of
Its products td Jobbers unless the latter
dealt exclusively In the wares of the
comp&ny. The company also attempted,
through the circular, to regulate the retail
price for the Howard watch. Judge Mc
Pherson decided' that the company had
the right to fix the price at which the
watches were to be sold to Jobbers, but
there Its right to vend ended, and In
fixing the recall price it had committed
an unlawful act.

The time allowed b'y tho court for the

committees from the rival associations

Every mlnuto that went by saw the Jlt

said that the bond must bo filed tonight,
according to the Jltneymen. Twice they
were granted an extension and It Is not
probable they will get another one. Tho

Many of tho Jltneymen were optimistic

Continued from l'Ee One

"It would be most desirable for the city
to select a 'woman na tho head of tho
school system, Inasmuch as about SO per

"Tho selection would not bo an experi

Young, has a woman superintendent of
schools who has made a magnificent
record. Women havo acquitted themselves
creditably In every executive position
which they have held. Many of them
hold high positions In manufacturing con
corns nnd In department stores. Women
have demonstrated their administrative
ability, ind their mastery ot detail and
pulnstnklng care is an established fact."
Miss Puncheon, as possibly tho next
superintendent of schools, was highly
praised by Miss Lewis and Miss Mary
H. Ingham, vice president of tho Equal

she and Dr. Lucy L. W. Wilson, who
havo strong backing, are In California

"I ttm a great admirer of Miss
Puncheon," said Miss Ingham.- "Sho

schools. Her record as head of the Girls'
High School Is excellent."
"Regardless of lior being a woman, Miss
Puncheon has wonderful administrative
ability," said Miss Lewis. "Her varied
