AVOHK OK TlIK BUREAU.
As to the work ot the Gas Bureau under
present conditions. Chief Dickerman sas:
"The bureau testa nt the station and
elsewhere aie now made without previous
notice to any employe of the gas com
pany. All except ono of tho employes of
the bureau are trained engineers, four
being college ginduntcs. Such men are.
competent to mako tho teats and do tho
other work necessary to safeguard tno
consumers' Interests In the quality of tho
lis for which I'hlladclphlans aro paying
(lO.OCO.toO a year Any business man
would And himself fortunate to have In
his employ such Intelligent nnd trained
employes as are now doing effcctlvo work
for the city nt very modcrato salaries.
"The bureau In tho future may become
t dead one, being a mere, opiate for the
public, or l may continue to do llvo Im
portant work In studying all phases of tho
city's Interests In tho very Important
fas problems concerned with a $10,000,000
to JM.OOO.OCO annual business and a prop
erty north $30,000,000 to $10,000,000. inti
mately associated with the comfort and
safety of all tho citizens.
"If given the opportunity for progress
ive work, capable trained men will seek
the positions for tho service they can
render. If restricted to the dead letter of
narrow inspection, only down-and-out-ers
will want tho jobs for tho salaries
attached. Tho city cannot hope to get
any service of'valuo fiom such employes.
'Tho present bureau staff Is very ready
to co-operate with the gas company man
agement to aid -ns It may In maintaining
rood service, but It Insists on being free
from control or iulluenco by the gas com
pany. It believes that anything short of
the very best nnd most up-to-date quality
and Ben-Ice would ho llttlo less than a
crime- against Philadelphia, In view of the
UW0.O00 or $3,000,000 clear prollt made each
jear from the gas now sold and the larger
Profits ot the future."

dinner on Saturday as a present from their employers, Charles II. Kendrick and W. Frecland Kendrick. The dinner took place in tho laundry
lunchroom and consisted of n plentiful supply of luscious turkey with all the "flx'ns," preceded by soup nnd fish and succeeded by mince pie,
pumpkin pie and various kinds of ice cream. Durinpr the dinner, at which Charles H. Kendrick presided, music was furnished from a Victrola and
the entire company afterward fox-trotted and one-stepped until the shades of night hcjrnn to fall. The drivers wore perforce unable to be present
as they were engaged in making Christmas Eve deliveries, but the Kcndricks have made arrangements to duplicate the dinner for the men

GRIP GERMS FLEE
AS STORM CLEARS
Already City Feels Relief With
Coming of Colder Weather
and Clarified Atmosphere.
Deaths of Week 946
HEALTH WARNING ISSUED
The high wind, rain and snow which
drove oft the springlike weather of
Christmas Day also smashed the grip
epidemic, according to Dr. Samuel O.
Dixon, Commissioner of Health, by carry
ing oft the dnmpness nnd humidity and
replacing It with n dry atmosphere.
An ltnmodlnto Improvement In tho con
dition of grip sufferers was noticed yes
terday by physicians, despite the fact
thnt the total number of denths reported
was 115, making a grand total for the
week of 916, or nearly double that of the
corresponding week last year.
Dr. Dixon attributes the unusual
amount of sickness nnd death Indirectly
to the grip, which disease, he says, weak
ens tho resisting powers of Its victims
to tho nction of other disease-producing
"Tho Increased death rate during the
prevalence of grip since tho 11th century
makes It plain that tho health authorities
should give preventive measures moro
attention than heretofore." ho said in n
statement Issued yesterday.
"Tho speclllc poisoning that comes from
tho work of the germ that causes this
trouble reduces the natural resistance of
tho body to the nction of other dlscaso
piodticlng orgnnlsms. Without the grip ns
a forerunner, that natural resistance
would have waged n winning battle
ngnlnst such diseases.
"It Is often In this Indirect way that
tho epidemic influenza causes the death
roll to double the length of Its grip col
umn. "Hygroscopic statistics rather tend to
show a relationship between tho disease
and damp weather. Foggy weather often
precedes an Invasion of tho malady. As
tho fncllltles for rapid nnd moro general
travel and transfer of merchandise are
Increased the organisms thnt produce tho
condition called 'grip' will bo moro wide
ly and quickly distributed.
"Tho morbidity and morality from a
great variety of diseases during tho epi
demic go to show Its devitalizing char
acteristic. If great care la not taken,
pneumonia, tuberculosis and other Ills aro
likely to develop nnd often terminate In
death. It Is a disease that requires care
ful watching under good medical talent."
DAMAGE FROM STORM
Tho windstorm which' smashed the
epidemic of grip, by suddenly clearing
the ntmosphero nnd dispersing the hu
midity, caused much damage throughout
the States nlong the coast. The wind
turned to rain and then to snow yester
day, followed by a temperature at about
tho freezing point.
In this city trees were uprooted, fences
torn from their foundations, shutters
damaged and telegraph and telephone)
wires torn clown In several sections.
Ono part of the city was in complete
darkness last night. Not an aro light
r.or electric light was burning In the en
tire district between Allegheny avenue
and Holmesburg nnd from 5th street to
the Delaware niver.
At 8th and Norrls streets nnd 8th and
Diamond streets fences were torn down,
while a big sign at the northeast corner
of 10th street and Columbia avenue was (
carried nail a diock neturo win mum i"
wedged In between two doorsteps.
The temperature yesterday was 43 at
Its highest nnd 31 at Us lowest point. It
was 30 degrees at 8 o'clock this morning,
according to the Weather Bureau, with
the humidity at S3.

FREIGHT TO NEW YORK
SHIPPED BY MOTOR
Service Established for Accom
modation of Philadelphia
Philadelphia manufacturers who have
been handicapped In their shipments to
New York city by tho freight cmbnrgo of
tho Pennsylvania Railroad, find n new
method ot shipment offered to them by
Georgo W Mink, .fr., H00 Arch street.
Mr Mink Is operating big flvp-lon motor
trucks between New York and Philadel
phia, which will, he believes, ennblo ship
pers hero to ovcrromo tho obstacle thrown
In the pith ot their business by tho an
nouncement of the railroad that It could
not carry goods to New York because of
the congested condition of tho line nnd tho
laek of freight cars
Mr Mink nays he started his lino of
Inter-clty freight trucks because of n de
sire to help out shippers affected by the
embargo nnd because ho saw an oppor
tunity to put hlr trucks nt work profitably
at a. time when bo found the use for them
was not so pressing as usual. Ho asserts
thnt It Is a big saving in time and Is moro
satisfactory than shipping by rail.
Among firms expected to take advan
tage of Mr Mink's proposition aro mak
ers of munitions of war here, who nro
likely to have dllllculty tilling their con
tracts with foreign Governments because
of tho railroad embargo. Thus far, no
munitions of war hao been carried.
Tho llrms manufacturing war muni
tions on the Inrgest scnlc, such as the
du Pont Power Company, nro shipping
to New York by water, but many of tho
smaller firms nre dependent on tho rail
road, nnd it Is thought that they will
shortly havo recourse to Mr. Mink's
A flat rate ppr truck load ha-s been
established bj Mr. Mink. He chnrgos $70
a load for shipments to Manhattan. $3
extra If the destination Is In the Bronx,
nnd still another $,"1 moro If It Is in
Brooklsn. If the shipper wants to send
n load over nnd bring nliothcr hark he
will find a greatly reduced rate perhaps
only $00 for the return trip.
Mr. Mink contends that shippers have
a great mlvniitngo In sending their goods
via his trucks, for tho automobiles call
nt the factory and take the goods direct
to the point of destination, Bavlng tho
