at Ninth and Market streets with her

overcome and fell unconscious to the floor
Deputy Coroner James Watdln, who was In
the store, summoned, a physician, b'ut the
woman died In a few minutes.
The girls In the Bushnell envelope manu
facturing plant collapsed obout the same
time. Four of them were carried to the
Jefferson Hospital by employes and the
others were revived at the plant.
An employe said that shelves which were
built lu. many of the windows kept out the
air and made the temperature Inside as high
as 100 degrees. A representative of the firm
said he could not account for the prostra
tion of the girls and declared that the firm
did everything in its power for the comfort
of the employes.
Many manufacturing plants closed at
noon because of the heat. The girls em
ployed In the WJlllam F. Taubel mill, Cedar
and Huntingdon streets, were allowed to
quit work at 9:30 this morning.
Although the mercury raced close to the
record of Tuesday It was three degrees
cooler at 3 o'clock than the same, hour yes
terday afternoon. The temperature at that
hour this afternqon was 34.
Many take comfort In the fact that
breezes expected from the lake regions are
said to be on their way.

I do not think it is possible

STATE GUARD TO BE RECALLED FROM BIG BEND
CAMP STEWART, El Paso, Tex., Aug. 23. Repbrts at division headquarters

two battalions of Pennsylvania troops now nt Big Bend will bo ordered back within
10 dayH. One battalion Is from the Second Regiment, of Philadelphia, and tho other

One hope remains with the police of
learning who the motorist was who shot

18(1 Calumet street, Falls of Schuylkill,
when tho youth, with six companions, came
upon the man hugging and kissing a woman
in his automobile in a dark spot on Hairpin
turn, on unfrequented piece of road in
Falrmount Park, last night.
The one hope Is that the woman who
screamed when the motorist shot the boy
will become conscience-stricken nnd disclose
her companion's Identity. They believe
that she, after a night of fright and after
reading In the papers thaf the man she uas
with ltllled the boy, will report at the de

WASHINGTON, Aug. 23. The raiU

on the threatened strike, adjourned
until 6 o'clock without taking definite'
action. The financial interests are en-,
dcavoring to reach some plan of accept
ing the President's proposal.
WASHINGTON. Aug. 2J. Legislative,
means of meeting counter-suggestions made
by the railroads of the country In the ne
gotiations to prevent tho threatened strike
wero discussed by President Wilson today
with Senator Newlands and Representa
tive Adamson, of Georgia, chairmen of tha
Congressional Interstate Commerce Com
mittees. After canvassing tho strike situation for
more than an hour with the President, tha
concessional leaders declared that no Im
mediate legislation dealing with the wage'
dispute was expected.
It was understood, however, that the
leaders talked over the possibility of refer
ring the whole problem of legislation to
prevent similar crises in the future to the
recently created Joint Subcommittee on
Railroad Legislation, which has ample au
thority to Investigate all phases of the
transportation problem. Senator Newlands
Is chairman and Representative Adamson
vice chairman of this committee.
The conference was the beginning of ths
consideration of legislative problems con
nected with the strike. The congressional
leaders said they would meet the President
again after he had conferred with the rail
road executives In the strike settlement
UA.WS FOR FUTURE,
president Wilson laid before the congre
slonal leaders suggestions made by tha
railroad executives for the modification of
the President's ctrlke settlement plan. Tha
railroad heads have asked tha President
for assurances that Federal means will b
provided to prevent a recurrence of the
present strike crisis. They suggested that
a Federal commission be created along tha
lines of the Canadian industrial disputes
act commission, which would have author-'
Ity to deal with wage disputes through in
vestigation and publicity. The plan would
pot be in the nature of compulsory abrt
tratlon, and the proposed commission would
have no power to enforce Its awards.
It would simply Investigate and deter
mine the facts, leaving the settlement of
the dispute to public opinion and to tha
sense of justice of the parties to the con
trbversy. Under the Canadian act, tha
commission is allowed a year for Investiga
tion, and meantime the strike Is postponed.
The congresslohal leaders, after the con
ference, said that they were not prepared
to commit themselves on this proposition.
They said the President had gone over tha.
entire strike situation but had made no '
