live In this city were to be examined by
t physician, It Is estimated that a large
perecentage of them would follow the
footsteps of their 10 comrades. The
workers say they have neither the time
nor the money for such a purpose.
Tuberculosis among the workers Is 10
times higher than the rate In the United
States army; thr.ee out of every four have
defective vision, due to poor lighting In
the shops (the Investigators urged ade
quate Illumination to remedy this): 1 out
of every 10 has nervous affections; half
of then, or 3000 in this city, have faulty
posture from bending over their work.
These are some of the evils that ar,e rife
In the trade. And tho workers are un
able to combat them.
"It will do no good to strike for better
hygienic conditions," said one of the men
"The manufacturers would not gtant the
i demands and the workers are truly thanlt
ful when they can make enough to give
their families food and clothes. Some
, times the shops are so fearful that our
' people can't work In them. A week or so

Sixth an'd Arch streets. They sa'd they
could not stand the foul air nnd Insani
tary surroundings any longer."
AVUrtAGK WAGES S TO $10;
The trade lias two busy seasons one
In the fall and one In the spring. Both
last about 10 weeks. During the busy
eatons, If the worker keeps on the Job
It hours or more a day and seven days a
seek, he can make as high as (-0 a week.
It he Is so successful as to do this. It
brings his m erase for the year round to
IS or $10 a weuk.
The fall season is now In full blast, and
It increases the evils characteristic of the
trade. As regards this both the workers
and the Government report agree. Tile
manufacturers and the workers here once
alined an agreement to limit the working
hourj per week to 52, with a maximum of
alx hours' oveitlme for every seven days.
To make enough to tide them over the

The nomination papers of Joseph Fa
bian, on the Washington party ticket for
County Commissioner, were withdrawn
today when It was brought out at a
further hearing on the objections to the
petition beforo Judge Patterson that sev
eral of the signatures were forgeries and
that one signer was not a naturalized
Harry Freeman, of U9 South 4th street,
and Andrew Willis Graham, also signers
of the petition, were severely, repri
manded by Judge Patterson for Interfer
ing with witnesses subpoenaed to appear
In court last week and explain If they
were members of the Wnshlngton party
nnd entitled to sign the petition.
There were 101 signers to the petition,
which was attacked on the ground that
It did not contain the requisite number
of Washington party electors to mako
It a valid nominating petition under tho
law. Witnesses who failed to answer
subpoenas last week were brought In this
morning on attachments. They declared
that they had failed to obey the sum
mons because Freeman and Graham told
them not to pay any attention to the sub
poenas. Judge Patterson then told Freeman and
Graham that If they again Interfered
with the process of a court subpoena they
would be sent to Jail.
No Speeding, No Tricks and Proper
Motorcyclists who ride along the North

problem of speeding automoblllsts has
been temporarily disposed of by the Is
suance of 1200 warrants recently, the po
lice have decided to Insist on proper

Work Is Begun in Earnest
Essential Steps in Actual Construc
tion Operations Under City Hall
Several hundred men crowded City Hall
Plara early today looking for employ
ment on the Broad street subway work,
under City Hall. The foreman In charge
for tho' Kcstono State Construction
Company, took on more than a hundred
laborers and the others were told more
men would be needed within a few days.
The work began In earnest today. The
southern and western sections of the
courtyard and the northwest corner of
the plaza had been entirely ripped open
on Saturday and yesterday, and the ex
cavation began today.
Within tho courtyard the excavation
for the big pit, which Is to houso the
hydraulic pumps used In connection with
the City Hall elevator system, wns be
gun. On the plaza outside digging on the
subway jiroper wns started. The heavy,
wooden framework which is to support
the electrical dredging machinery has
been almost completed In both places.
S. M. 8waab, chief engineer In charge
of the construction of the subway, decided
today to move tho heavy bronzo statues
of Dr. Joseph Leldy and John Christian
Bullitt from their present locations on
the plaza in order that all possibility
of their being injured may be removed.
The statue of Doctor Lcldy Is situated
on the west side of the plaza and nortn
of the Market street cntranco to tho
courtyard, whllo the, other Is located on
tho southern side and west of the Broad
street entrance Derricks to effect tho
moving of the statues from tho line ot
the subway wero put In place today.
As the work proceeds, It will be neces
sary to close off the southern end of the
Broad street passageway during the
n'ght hours, diverting the north nnd
uouth pedestrian traffic through the cor
ridors of the building.
On the western end of the Market
street passageway safety barriers will
bo erected, leaving a space of about 10
feet for wagon traffic and leaving about
one-third tho width of the present pas
sageway for passenger traffic.
In addition to the big hole In the court
yard nnd fhe wide excavation at the
northwestern corner of the building a tO
foot shaft will be sunk at the southern
end of the .City Hall later. The pave
ment will probably be removed today
for beginning the work.
