Above is a diagram of the armor and gun equipment which, it is "'clieved, the British have mounted on the
Holt motor tractor, of which a recent photograph is reproduced here. Thugh the British are giving credit
to various officials for the invention, the actual tractor is an American product, manufactured at Peoria, 111.
About 1000 have been shipped to the British Government. Their most striking feature is the double cater
pillar wheels at the rear, which run on jointed rails fitted on the inside of corrugated belting. The 18,000
pounds of weight is so balanced that the heavy front -wheel can bo "Jerked" into tho air so as to cross an
obstacle, just as a rider pulls up the head of his horse to cross, a ditch or fence. Its makers say it is quite
possible for tho machine to get astride a trench and enfilndc its occupants on both sides by machine-gun fire.
The tractor develops 120 horsepower and can attain a speed of about ten or twelve miles an hour.

BIG COAL TRUST
CASE IS BEFORE
Justice Department Files
Brief Asking Dissolution
of Reading Company
WASHINGTON', Sept. 10. Contending
that through the medium of the Keddlng
Company, an alleged holding company, a
combination of great corporations having
assets aggregating more than J500.000.000
has exercised a monopoly over the produc
tion, sale and transportation of coal In the
nnthraclte fields of Pennsylvania and neigh
boring States, the Department of Justice
today filed a brief In the United States Su
premo Court asking for the dissolution of
tha aliened monopoly Into competitive un'ts
so as to restore conditions In harmony with
tho Sherman ahtl-trust ,law. Tho brief de
dares that tho IUadlng Company controls
more than two-thirds of alt the coal-bearing
lands in ilia entire SchuylkllL region of
Tho lower court held that the Ilea'ding
Company was not operating In violation of
the Sherman law; that the Philadelphia
and Beading Railway Company andthe
Central Railroad of New Jersey were not
competitive and that their1 union did not
violate the Sherman law : that tne comDina
tlon between tho Reading Coal Company and
the Wllkes-Barre Coal Company which were
competitive, was a violation of latv, and
that tho agreements of 187J, 188S, 1887 and
1892 between the Lehigh Coal and Navlga
tlon Company and the Central Railroad
Company and the "WUltes-Barre Coal Com
pany were not In restraint of trade; that
the Reading Railway Company In trans
porting coal owned by the Reading Coal
Company did not violate the commodity
Cjauso of the Interstate commerce act, and
fhat the provisions of Us decree requiring
the Central Railroad Company to glvo up
all Interest In the -Vllkes-Barre Coal Com
pany, as a means of separating the two con
cerns made It unnecessary to determine
whether the transportation by the Central
Railroad Company of the coal owned by
the vVllkes-Barre Coal Company was vio
lative of the commodity clause.
This decision was unsatisfactory both
to the Government and to the defendants,
and both aides appealed.
In addition to the Reading Cornpany, tho
defendants named are the Philadelphia and
Reading Coal and Iron Company, the Cen.
trat Railroad of New Jersey, the Lehigh
and WIlkAs-Barre Coal Company, the Le

Charges were made today by Stonemen
loyal to the Rev, II. C. Stone that tho rea
son Harry T. Baxter and his fzllowers
seceded from the order was due to the fact
that they did not receive the support of the
entire body at the last election.
Mr, Baxter replied this afternoon by say
ing: "I did not go Into the Stonemen's organ
ization with any Idea of using that organi
zation for political purposes. I have always
been Independent In politics; I claim to be
a good citizen and In my opinion every
good ctlzen should participate n poltlcs."
"I have never heard any political dis
cussion among tho Stonemen. In fact I
tried to prevent the Stonemen fr9m getting
Into politics. Last February Doctor Stone
asked me to organize the Twenty-sixth
ward for the Stonemen, I agreed to do this,
but I told Mr, Stone that politics and
social activities should never mix. If Doc
tor Stone and his spies, or what we called
missionaries, want to go Into the business
of raking up politics, I can furnish proof
that wlU surprise them, but I don't want to
go nto that kind of a mess."
Mr. Baxter was Independent leader of the
Twenty-sixth Ward for the Porter cam
paign. Frank Kammerad and Dr. F H.
Rhoads were candidate. for Inagtstrate
on the Franklin party ticket at the last elec
tion and were badly defeated. ICarrimerad
la from the Thirty-ninth Ward and Rhoads
from Uie Forty-second Ward, It Is charged
by the-Stonemen that Baxter, Kamerad and
Rhoads were angry because they dfd not
get the support -of their fellow Stonemen
and. have started this rebellion to get even.
The first test of strength between the
Stonemen's Fellowship and the rebellious
United Protestant Fellowship will come to
nlght.Nvhen both organizations hold meet

Events are ahapng themselves toward a
climax In the struggle which Involves vir
tually every Protestant church in the city
and 100,000 member of the order, who are
