DOVEIt, Del., Aug. 21. The nntl-organ-Jz&tlon
followers of Alfred I. du Pont, un
disturbed by wl&l la called their defeat at
the primaries on Baturday, began arriving
here early this morning prepared to work
out plans for the defeat of United States
Senator Henry A. du Pont on the floor of
tho Republican convention tomorrow. The
regular Itopubllcnn organization leaders,
apparently confident of victory, are making
no effort to get on tho ground early and
they probably will not arrlvo here until

It Is admitted by both factions that tho

Is not certain. An 81 votes are sumclent
to control the convention and the Organiza

neutral political observers point out that

Danish Press Angers Germans
LONDON, Aug. 21. A Router dispatch
from Copenhagen says: "Tho Norddcutsche
Allgemclno Zeltung, tho German omclal or
gan, prints a furious attack on tho Danish
press for Its lack of Impartiality. 'What,'
uks the newspaper, 'Is the Danish press
driving at with Its continuous attacks on
Germany and Its servile demonstrations of
ipnpathy for our enemies? If tho Danish
press expresses the public opinion of Den
mark, It gives food for serious reflection.' "
Police Court Chronicle
Every day for a week Joe B. Brown saw
a good-looking cop lift a smiling red apple
from a fruit stand conducted by a woman
near Fortieth and Market streets. "It's a
shame when the cops eat up a woman's
btsnlzz lke that," thought Joo. He noticed
Incidentally that tho woman never com
plained. He concluded that she was ac
customed to the dally tax and Joe's heart
For a time he was seriously considering
taking steps to bring the matter to the
attention of the powers that be and have
the subject threshed out by the Grand Jury.
Finally he decided to take action himself.
Ho "laid" for the cop. When tho police
man came as usual to exact his dally levy,
Joe caught him by tho arm. "What kind
of a game is this?" he demanded. The cop
"What aro yer grafting on dts woman
fer, jlss bekaws she's runnln' an' apple
This was enough for the cop. He
grabbed Joe by the neck and lugged him
before Magistrate Harris.
"Now," said tho bluecoat, "tell the Judgo
cow I grafted on the woman of the apple
The prisoner threw out his chest The
woman (was there, too, waiting to help in
the expose. Joe felt like a real reformer
and had a vision of the cop's quick do
wpltation. After he had explained how
the cop had come each day and plucked the
best apple from the stand the woman her
"There's been a mistake," Bhe Bald, "this
policeman saved my little boy ffom being
run over some time ago and when he saw
how poor wo were at home he left a five
dollar bill with my boy at the hospital. I
told him I would take the money If he
would agree to take an apple from the stand
very day. So he takes the apple to please
me more than anything else. I Just found
out that he pays my boy a nickel for a
paper every night and never waits for any
thange." The cop never said a word.
"What 'do you think of yourself now?"
Md the Judge to the prisoner.
"Well, yer see I didn't know," said Joe.
"I ought to gtve you six months," added
the Magistrate, "but It's a shame to put the
city under the expense of keeping such as
you. Qlt out."
Joe shuffled out mournfully.

Mayor Smith, on August 5, Bald that he

but to date he hns not advertised for bids
for any new portion of tho vast system of

It was pointed out today by the men

the cat In connection with this, epidemic,
remembering that It required 18 years of
study for the discovery that the rnt-borne
flea scattered tho bubonlo plague.
"These dirty Btrny cats that slink about

bo exterminated. The police havo the
power In their hands to get rid of them nnd
I should like to see this power exercised. No
cows or chickens are allowed In the con

Chief McCrudden saw a connection be
tween the facts that most of the Infantile
paralyslsr- victims are children between two
and six years old nnd that these same
children nro fonder of cnln than children
of other ages. In particular the children
like sick cats, ' ccause they are more docile
nnd make "better" playmates.

FHANC1S KAIir-OCK, 22 months old, 111 Vine
Two deaths and three View cases were
reported In Camden and vicinity today.
Evelyn Stanton, 8-year-old daughter of tho
Rev. Frank Stanton, pastor of the Third
Baptist Church, Broadway and Webster
streets, was one victim. She died last night
at Wlldwood. The body will bo brought
by nutomobllo to the Stanton home, nt
Twen,ty-sccpnd and High streets today. The
other victim, a 2-year-old daughter of
Joseph Checsman, of Magnolia, died Satur
day, but tho death was not reported then.
Tho first case was reported today In Had

2 Lee street, la stricken. Other new cases
wore thoso of Albert Cloy, IE years old,
1812 Fllmoro street, Camden, and a negro
child nnmed Gray, at Lawnslde.
Hope that tho Injection of human blood
serum Is a stumbling block to Infantllo
paralysis camo today from New York, where
a. decrease of one-half In the death rate of
victims treated with sorum wan reported.
Tho eyes of medical Philadelphia, there
fore, and of all Philadelphia, are focused
on tho Philadelphia Hospital for Contagious
Diseases. There the fast-growing Bupply
of human blood serum Is being Injected as
rapidly as possible Into the patients.
From a death rate of 22.7 per cent In
tho entire city of Now York to a rate of
10 per cent among the patients treated with
sorum In the Wlllnrd Parker Hospital Is
the fact upon which physicians base their
hopa that serum may bo tho cluo to the
solution of the puzzling plague. But It Is as
yet only a hope. Even the physicians who
Injected tho sorum say that tho results are
only tentative and that no conclusions may
be set down as authoritative.
The serum, which is obtained from tin
so-called "Immunized blood" of personl,
mostly adults, who years ago recoverti
from Infantllo paralysis, was Injected ln.o
moro than ono hundred children with t.io
disease. Out of every ten one child dtid.
The scope of tho experiment now Is bung
widened In the Now York hospital, wLero
tho serum Is being Injected Into the cir
culations of pntlents nowly stricken.
In tho Philadelphia Hospital for Con
tagious Diseases Immunized blood serum,
taken from normal persons who havo re
covered from Infantile paralysis, has been
Injected Into tho little bodies of 15 pa
tients, both boys and girls, according to
Dr. Thcodoro Le Boutllller. of the staff.
The effect of the treatment Is being watched
with tho greatest Interest and more oerunv
will bo Injected as soon as additional volun
Like New. Magnificent
teers appear to furnish blood for the opera
tion. The serum Is Injected Into the spinal
canal, where the disease makes Itself known
through an Increase In the number of white
cells In the fluid.
The question or whether or not the open
ing of the schools will be delayed by the
plnguo will bo, settled tomorrow morning,
Doctor Dixon Bald. In his opinion there is
no need to closo tho schools In the many
districts In the Stato where the epidemic
has not appeared. Conferences with edu
cators today nnd tomorrow will determine
whether it would be unwise to open the
High schools, or schools where the pupils
are moro than sixteen years of nge, prob
ably will not be affected by the school
quarantine,' according to President Ed
munds, of tho Board of Education.
Threo hundred drinking cups were re
moved today from the 150 fountains nnd
springs In Fnlrmount Park. Tho cups had
been rcnlckled as n safeguard against
germs, but even this precaution was not
considered thorough enough.
The regulation against shipping Into this
Stato bodies of children who have died of
Infantllo paralysis applies also to tho trans
portation of bodies within tho boundary of
the State, Doctor Dixon ruled today. In tho
case of a body which was to bo shipped
from Ablngton to tho Mount Morlah Ceme
tery, he decided ngnlnst nny means of
transportation except by henrso, refusing
to allow . the body to bo shipped on nny
Doctor Dixon Issued n warning today
against ndvcrtlscmonts Inserted by quacks
In small town nowspnpers offering to "euro"
