Inspector Charges Measures
Approved by Body Fail to
Meet State Law
A heated discussion nrose at the meet
ing of the Pennsylvania Association of
Bealers of Weights and Measures today
over the right of a committee, to Bpeclfy
rules and regulations for a body of In
spectors. The point debated was the right
pf a committee appointed laBt year to
specify a regulation scale to be used
throughout the State. It wan also con
tended that the commlttco exceeded its
authority In drafting a set of rules and
regulations under which the Inspectors
were supposed to work.
At the convention last year the com
mittee was appointed, with John Um
tead as chairman, to drawn tho rules.
Today a member of the committee, II.
E Itclnhart, of Qrecnnburg, charged that
the commlttco exceeded Its authority
wfien It advocated tho uso by merchants
throughout tho State of ono regulation
scale and uniform measures. Ho was
supported by James A. Sweeney, head
of the IJurcau of Standards at Harris
burg. "We havo no right to dictate to tho
storekeepers what kind of n scale they
gnouicl use," xur. owcency saiu

used, and to create a uniform Bcalo would
cost both the merchants and scale manu
facturers money. Besides, I haven't
tho authority. Thcro wnB a law passed
by tho Legislature laBt session glv'ng mo
that power, but, It was vetoed."
The commlttco agreed on ono scale,
the mako of which Is not known, and
Immediately asked Sweeney to approvo
It and make It the standard throughout
-the State This Sweeney refused to do,
ss ho had not tho power, ho Bald today.
Furthermore, tho committee asked him
to publish and send to every ecalo and
measure inspector in tho State n copy
of tho regulations. This ho also refused
to do.
Charges that the regulations and somo
of the measures adopted by tho commit
tee ncre In direct violation of the State
laws were mado by Itclnhart. Ho eald
that, while tho State allows for only tho
conical measures, the commlttco approved
the cylindrical measures.
"If we were to confiscate every measure
that did not comply with the State law
we wouldn't have bIx left." said Mr.
Iteinhart, "all for the simple reason that
the committee approved measures that
wero not mentioned In the Stato code."
Tho commlttco said that whereas ocry
law Is lax, allowing for tho judgment of
the Individual Inspector, It had to con
strue tho regulations nnd specify certain

Institution today after being found at

Johnnie Morgan, Found Lying
Under Department Store
Counter, Seemed to Be Up
to His Old Tricks Again
The glowing health of Johnnie Morgan's
wlfo was In strange contrast with the
faded prisoners In tho Cltv ir.-ill nnllm
court t0y nd Particularly with Johnnie
Morgan. Ho Is a notorious and worn-out
safo-cracker, who tcok to heroin long be
foro he lost his skill as a burglar. Now
the drug "has" him. He was a pathetlo
and harmless looking, shabby man beside
his spruco nnd comely wife, in whoso
checks bloomed the roscnto vigor of coun
try life.
Morgan, half dazed with tdrugs, lay
last night under a counter on tho second
lloor of a Market Btreet department store,
hnlf an hour aftor It hnd closed Its doors.
A watchman found him there. It looked
bad, because It was Johnnie's old trick
this getting Into n store and hiding till
everjbody was out. Tor then, In tho
paBt, with his pals, ho would steal out In
the night nnd blow n sate and get away
with tho store's ready cash Ho served
two years for thnt In the Eastern Peni
tentiary and nfter ho got out was tried
on an old charge in Montgomery County
nnd served 18 months more In Norrls
town Jail. He was n frco man again only
n few weeks ago, for tho first time In
nearly four years.
It was probably a Question of sendlnc
Johnnie Morgan to prison ngaln to die
there. His first act on gaining freedom
had evidently been to get drugs In some
manner. This was not hnrd for him, oen
under the stern regime of the Harrison
law, for it had been Morgan who first
brought heroin In largo quantities to
Philadelphia years ago for the dismal de
light of the Tenderloin. He Is a college
graduate, an expert chemist. Ho comes
of a good family.
As Magistrate) Beaton was about to
dispose of MorganJ,s case his wife stood
up beside her husband. There was a
murmur of astonishment and ndmlratlon.
Her golden hair, neatly arranged, shone
glossy and vital, beneath her hat. Her
blue ocs were ns clear nnd brave as
Johnnie's were dimmed and shameful
and downenst. Her black silk dress per
fectly fitted a youthful and graceful
"Now, don't send him to Jail, Judge."
sho said, In a calm, firm volco, touchlngly
maternal for the wreck sho had nover
ceased to love, In splto of the grotesque
failure ho had mado of her life.
"I promise you he won't stay In Phil
adelphia, won't go back to Jhe Tenderloin
cer again. I want to take him away
to tho country, where I live with my
mother nnd father There It Is so healthy,
and I can take care of him there. He Is
broken up, jou can see. Ho will get a
little better there In the green fields, with
good food nnd none or that awful stud
to take.
"I can promise you," her voice rose
clearly and almost with a note of tragic
triumph of motherllness, "that Johnnie
Morgan will never trouble the Tenderloin
or the stores and their money again as
long as ho lives "
Ho was set free, of course, and hus
band and wife, the man stooping and
leaning heavily on her nrm, the woman
looking steadily forward and with high
held head, passed out of the room and
downstnlrs; later they were seen walking
over to tho Broad Street Station to take
a train for the green fields. Curious
persons took the elevator to follow at
a distance, for a last look at the fine
wife of Johnnie Morgan. They felt that,
after all, her life was not a failure.
Victim, Awakened While in Bed, Too
Weak to Defend Herself
HAZLETON, Pa , Aug, X7, Aroused
from sleep early today, Mrs. Daniel Mc
deehan, of West Hazleton, wife of the
superintendent of the Diamond Water
Company, of this city, found a burglar
stooping over her bed. She recently gave
birth to twins, and was unable to leave
her bed,
Ab she threatened to make an outcry,
the burglar uncorked a phial and poured
acid on her face. She threw up her left
hand to ward off the acid, and struck a
knife he held in his hand, Inflating an
ugly gash on the lett Hand, une lainiea,
and when found a short, time after by
relatives, was bleeding freely. She is In
a weakened condition today, and suffers
greatly from shock.
The Intruder intended to rob the house,
as was shown by a collection of silver
ware packed on the first floor, ready for

Commission Orders Reading to
Put Passenger Trains on
Nonpaying Line
Hi (l
HAnmSHURCJ. Aug. 17. - The Stato
Public Service Commission today directed
tho Philadelphia and Rending Railway
Company to Instnl, within 30 das, pas
senger trnln service upon tho Mlddlo
Crock branch between Swataia Junction
and Newtown
Tho railroad company contended that
tho branch was constructed as a mlno
lateral, and not for tho purposo of carry
ing passengers and thnt, therefore, tho
commission was without authority to
make any order.
Chairman Alney, who mado tho order,
overruled tho objections, and held that
though tho brnnjjh might have been built
for the purpose of cnrrylng coal, tho act
of Assembly creating tho branch rail
road placed no such limitation upon It and
that therefore It might lawfully carry
The order Is regarded ns of wldo Im
portance for tho further point decided
which was that It Is pot an answer to a
demand for passenger Bcrvlco to show
that the particular train would bo oper
ated nt a Iobs.
"Tho first duty of a railroad," said
Chairman Alney, "Is to perform Its proper
corporate functions, and If cnrrjlng pas
sengers Is ono of them, It must perform
such duty or glvo up its charter privi
leges. "Tho expense of operating n particular
train Involving a loss may bo of more or
less Importance in determining rates to
be charged, but will not of Itself Justify
a railroad In refusing to give to any com
munity reached by Its lines such service
asmay bo needed and reasonably de
manded by the public."
