Director Wilson, of the Department of
Public Safety, In the course of nn Inter

that the police would be able to handle
whatever emergencls emlght nrlse through

was a failure.

surprising. Both dcclaro that the situation
In 1006 was the same and that It was sev

Mr. Mitten, In n Interview at tho
Bellevuo-Stratford this morning said:
"We have not missed a single trip. Every
car after 3 a. m. went out nnd has been
running on schedulo time nnd there has
not been a single flaw In tho system."
Mr. Mitten was asked If he was worried
about what might develop. Ills answer
"Well, the public needn't be worried."
He went on to say that the only point ho
wlihed to emphnstzo wis that eery car
was running no usual.

Mr. Mitten said he had extra men at
the barns this morning, but found no use
for them. Ho was asked If ho had made
any appeal to the Mayor or Superintendent
of Police In the event that he might need
them. He anawered that he had not found
thla stop necessary. Asked If ho received
xy pledge from tho men who are sup
posed U be satisfied under tho co-operativo
agreement, Mr. Mitten answered that the
beat pledge that they were satisfied was
that they were at work.
As to the strength of Mr. Flynn's organ
isation and the strength It might obtain,
Mr. Mitten said he did not think this a
good time to prognosticate.
The 'demands of the striking union men
re for wages of 40 cents an hour for nil
motormen and conductors. The highest
figure now paid to the most experienced
men Is 31 cents. The union demands also
.that It be recognized and that all grievances
be adjusted by a committee of the associa
tion. Another concession nsked of the company
is that the men be permitted to wear union
buttonB while on duty.
Abolition of "swing runs" Is a point of
contention. Under these "runs" the motor
men and conductors work for sevoral hours
and after a recess continue their duties. The
"swing man" works for no longer period
than his fellow employes, but his time on
duty Is not continuous, so that his oppor
tunity for rest Is not as great as is de
aired. - .
All of these demands were expressed In
an ultimatum senVito Mr. Mitten at 2
o'clock Friday afternoon by President
Flynn. The note stated that a mass-meeting
of the employes had been held on August 3
and that it had been decided that a strike
would be ordered It Mr. Mitten should con
tinue his refusal to treat with the car men'

DETROIT, Aug 7 Justice Charles E.
Hughes's first appeal for votes on his Cam
paign tour for tho presidency was a plea
for Americanism, expression of tho hopo
of a spirit of co-operation between capital
and labor nnd Indorsement of a national
movement for welfare among Amcrlcnn
Tho Republican nominee delivered tho
first of his campaign speeches In n stlfllngly
close room of the Hotel Ponchartrnln to a
committee representing welfare workers of
every big factory In Detroit. Thero wcro
more than a hundred persons who crowded
In nnd mopped their faces In tho withering
heat between handclaps for the nominee.
It was qulto a demonstration and It fol
lowed an unusual outpouring of tho public
early In the morning to greet him ns ho
paraded through the streots In an auto
mobile. "Democracy can't Btand strife between
capital and labor." Hughes told tho wcl

capitalists," he continued. "We aro all

Justice Hughes by J. M. Eaton, of tho
Cadillac Motor Compnny.
PRAISE WELFARE WORK.
"Detroit takes tho lend In a great many
things, but thero la nothing In which Its
ndvancc Is more Important than In this
welfare work," said Hughes In responding.
"There Is nothing In which I personally
tnke a greater Interest than tills Tho
United Stntes was not founded for produc
tionIt was founded for ctiual opportunity
to all for life, liberty and the pursuit of
happiness. It Is an nwful thing to think
of tho mnn through whoso work tho pro
duction Is made posslblo as a mere unit of
production and not as a human bolng. Wo
aro all workers I work as hard as any
body" and so saying the Republican
standard-benrcr mopped his perspiring
brow and smiled, while his auditors ronred
with laughter and npplause.
"In your welfare work," he continued,
"you are doing something that Is really
worth while. You aro buttressing democ
racy. After nil, the human factor Is tho
only real fnctor. Tho man who works must
feci tho country Is doing right by him.
Ho's entitled to bo safe In his work. No
man should bo placed In the position where
his life, limb or health is subjected to risk.
"That's good 'Americanism' nnd It's good
business," Hughes declared emphatically
while his audlcnco applauded vigorously.
"After the war we've got to look out for
ourselves If wo are to maintain our
supremacy. I'm delighted with every

tho community who works with his hands
can go to work secure nnd happy In tho

DESCRIBES TRENCH FORTS

LONDON7, Aug. 7. The cost ot the pre

shells by the British army alone. We nro.
I suppose, firing away money at tho rate
of JIO.000,000 dally, and our artillery never
ceases against the subterranean German
fortresses which I have lately explored.
These are a tribute not only to the In
tense work of the Germans, but the Irre
sistible superiority of the Rrlttsh nnd
It Is to bo hoped that some ot these
underground labyrinths will be preserved
In order that future generations may realize
what this kind of warfare Is like.
One of the captured fortresses I decline
the use of the preposterous word dug-out
Is large enough to contain comfortably
2000 men and supplies.
"In some cases the entrances and exits
were so cunningly concealed as to be In
visible. If the Germans were ns excellent
offensive fighters as they are clever nt
making defense works they would be
"As 'a matter of fact they are too fond
of their underground caverns and there is
reason to believe that In ordinary trench
dug-outs, which are much larger than those
of the French and Hrltlsh, thousands of
Germans have been burled alive.
"One dugout I visited had been the home
of Oerman offlcers. It contained comfortable
beds, an excellent, well filled wine cellar,
electric light, electric fans, and was dug
so deep that even the explosion of a 17-Inch
shell would make very little audible
Externally thero Is no sign whatever of
the existence of these forts. All that ap
pears above the ground may resemble the
ruins of a farmhouse,
On the whole, the appearance of the Ger
man prisoners Is quite different from those
I met even a few months ago. Out then we
had virtually no artillery. Now we have
unlimited guns and shells, and there Is
nothing old-fashioned In our equipment
Owing to the fact that we started with
nothing everything we now have Is the
latest and best
The Germans count the fact that the
training of artillery officers In peace time
Is a matter ot some years. Our gunners
are already as accurate as the Germans.
Our guns are newer, and. Inasmuch as the
Germans are afraid to send up their aero
planes and observation balloons', our bat
teries know what they are doing, whereas
the Germans are firing blindly.
It Is all new and delightful, and I en
joyed every minute of my It days' stay
with the British and French armies.

LAXITY I.N7 nF-POHTING CASES.
Doctor Cairns, whose office carried a full
working force yesterday for the first Sun
day since the situation became grave, eald
there were flagrant examples brought to his
attention of the laxity of physicians In re
porting paralysis cases here. He cited the
new case of Elsie Corner, of 53J9 Duval
street, whose llttlo brother, Howard, had
been removed to 1835 Margaret street after
the disease had been diagnosed as infantile

The case of Helen Abry, 10 months old. of
HS North Fourth street, who died Satur
day night at 9; 45 o'clock, was not reported.
Doctor Cairns said, until t o'clock yesterday
morning. In other words, the case was not
reported at all until 11 hours after the
child's death, although she had been 111 since
James Keeler, of S715 Jasper street, was
taken to tho Frankford Hospital dispensary
yesterday morning at 3 o'clock. The hos
pital physicians diagnosed the case as in
fantile paralysis at once, and the child
was taken to the Municipal Hospital.
As 7 o'clock last night Blanche Cur
rldan, 8 years old, of 1025 Carpenter street
Camden, was supposedly overcome by the
heat She fell while crossing Penn street
at Tenth. At Cooper Hospital her case was
diagnosed as Infantile paralysis, and she
was taken to tho Municipal Hospital.
Going over the cases In this city. Doctor
Cairns called attention to certain "freak"
happenings. For example, in the Forty
third Ward, whero IS cams developed,
there were only two deaths. "In German
town, where only four cases were reported,
there wfre. two deaths.
rmokcr Is constantly placing himself In
danger of being aflllctcd with tuberculosis
nnd many different kinds of skin diseases.
"It Is ofttlmes tho beginning of tho to
bacco habit. We find that tho tasto for
smoking has to be acquired, nnd that Is
generally done nt nn enrly age. But few
person begin to smoke after they have
reached twenty-one years of age.
"I'm not so sure that tobacco dulls the
mentality. Mnny of our most brilliant
writers on technical subjects, who do n
tremendous ninount of brain work, nre
known to be Inveternto smokers. Tho to
bacco heart and more belligerent forms of
heart disease are among the most common
effects of smoking."
Dr. Wllmer ICrusen, Director of the De
partment ot Health and Charities, nlso se
verely condemned tho "stump" smoker.
Doctor Kruscn said the danger was from
"It Is a double menace," ho says. "First,
tho cigarette may have come from the lips
of a person with a transmissible dlscnsc.
Second, the cigaretto Is generally thrown
In the street among refuse, where thou
sands of germs aro gathered."
Of the C2 cases treated In tho Municipal
Hospital, there havo been 10 deaths; of tho
19 cases treated at home, there have been
9 deaths. "Which speaks well for the
hospital treatment," added Doctor Cairns.
Tho two deaths reported In this city were:
Helen Abry, 10 months old, of H2C North
Fourth street. This was classed as a new
Lesllo Martin, 3 years old, of 845 North
