Upon Chairman Gaffney

Stnrc forceful measures for tlia conduct

their fnvor, the committee, bended by Uat
tallon Thief .Tobn .t. Mcslclll. is t,eUlnp out

strclcb" of a u limine contest.
lteporu recehed up to today nt tbo com
nil'teea liradquarters from nil parts of tbo
city wra decidedly oiitlmlstlo Ih tenor. The
various petitions circulated in behalf of tin
firemen have encountered no opposition, but
have found sluners nmoiiB business men and
property holders everj where.
The slnple Impediment to an open nvownl
on the part of Iie3ltatlnR Councilman, tbo
committee believes, Is duo to a disposition
on the part of tbeio IcRtslntors to Include
the police In any measure providing for a

does not forecast a sum remaining nbovo
the 1317 budget Riiflloiont to caro for tbo !
men of both bureaus.
In the event that this condition Is re
vealed when tbo City Controller's books nro
opened for the current year, the llremen's
cnmnnlteeo Is determined to place on rec
otd the Councllmen, especially the mem
bers of the Finance Committee as to their
views In such a contingency.
A largo number of Councllmen stand
pledged to support tbo firemen, regardless
of the case of tbo polloimen. Others, taking
the recent utterances of Stato Senator Kd
wln H. Varo as their RUlde, have said they
favor salary Increases In both pollco and

on Finance. Later personal appeals were
mado by tho committee to other leading
members of both chambers of Councils In a
movement to havo those Individuals declare
themselves on tho Hide of tho fhemen. re
gardless of tho fato of tho pollco campaign.
Tho firemen nro not Interested In tho ef

The police, working under an eight-hour,
three-platoon system, with a substitute list
to supply vacanoles, have no Just ground for
asking public or councllmanlo favor at this
time, tho liremen declare.
N'clthcr In duration nor In hazard does
their labor compare with that of tho fire
man, they nssert, while) tho character of
tho duty performed by tha pollco shows
to their disadvantage besldo that rendered

Public, opinion recognizes this disparity
in conditions, tho liremen say, to an extent
that should Justify any Councilman at this
tlmo In voting to increaso tho payroll and
leadjust tho hours In tho Bureau of Fire,

Chief Mcsklll nnd bis associates on tho
campaign committee this week will take
up the task of canvassing tho flro Insuranco
district with a iov to securing the united
support of tlat lino of business. Conditions
existing In tho bureau, rovcnled through
their campaign of publicity, the committee
feels ns.sured, will bring to their aid tho
co-operatlou of every Insurance concern
doing business In this city. "Thcro arc tnat
teri that we could explain to tho Insurance
men that wo would not dare discuss through
the papers." bald a member of the com
mittee "These conditions, if urged by tho
underwriters and their friends, we nro cer
tain would Impress upon Councils, as a
matter of protection as well as of Justice,
the necessity of immediate remedy. Such
lelief, of course, would Include tho two
objects of our campaign. "We havo refrained
from using our heavy artillery thus far, be
causo we havo hoped all along that Coun
cils would act without calling upon us
to lay bare to tho public all that lies
baack of nur movement, Tho entrance of
tbc Insurance men Into tho fight, however,
will undoubtedly open tho eyes of tho citi
zens of Philadelphia to tho many needs of
the bureau needs that tho public littlo
dreams of, and which are but slightly thort
of cilminal In their ery existence
"We havo based our plea thus far on
the argument of Justice and fair play,
us well as the dignity and safeguarding of
the city, but we havo kept the latter tvvo
Issues In tho background. If they nro
placed in tho forefront, wo aro convinced,
the only posslblo outcome will bo an ex
pression of Indignation nnd n demand for
betterment so emphntic that no Councilman,
no matter how callous or Indifferent ha
yiay be. can afford to disregard them."
TO LIMBO OF HAS-BEEN
Picturesque Tract on Reading
Railway at Chew Street, Ger-
mantown, to Be Playground
McNabbtown Is doomed to slip Into the
past In place of tho queer and picturesque
community, located on tha liigh bank bor
dering tho Philadelphia and Iteadlne Hall
way nt Chew street, Germantown, will rlso
a modern playground for tha children.
McNabbtown. bs It Is more commonly
known. Is a mtja thlrty-acro estate that
has been tho scene of much Germantown
history and tha subject of many puns be
loved by the residents of Germantown.
Tho thirty or more framo houses, tha old
well, the old residents, nnd even tha mod
trn pump that the health authorities in
sisted be erected despite the protest lot the
Inhabitants, are doomed.
Tha little settlement Is on the estate of
tho late Mrs. Mary A. McNabb, who pro
vided In her will that the buildings be razed
and a playground bo erected.
There were tears In tha eyes of the
Mayor of McN'abbtown, when Interviewed
about tha close of tha town. He Is George
If McKelvey, and has held the office by
common consent for several years.
"It has been tho homo of many of these
families for more than fifty years. They
love every Inch of It. even the hlsh red
wooden fence that hides It from the gen
eral gaze of tho public. Wo hail plenty of
fresh air up here on tho hill, and it Is good
exercise to climb here on our way home
every day "
Amid the strong odor of tobacco in Kelly's
store, where the community news Is scat
tered most freely, it was learned from sev
eral residents that they were told to vacate
within two weeks S3 the city was ready
to take over the property.

this afternoon of a widow whose hus

however, and Mrs Kelly contended that bis

ALASKAN DANCE HALL
CALLED MYTH BY GIRL
Mildred II. Lane, Who Went
North for Lecture Material,
Tho danco hall of Alaska, tho dance ball
in which the belles of tho town stand
around the bar between dances. Is a thing
of the past except In the "movies," accord
ing to Mis3 Mildred Hansel! Lane, daughter
of Aleander 11. I.ano. 340 South Seven

trip to Alaska, whero sho ate caribou meat
and stayed In gold-mino camps to study
Miss Lane, who Is a Smith Collego gradu

Miss Margaret Dennlston, daughter of Mrs.
II. 12. Dennlston, of School House Iano. Ger

Miss Lane, who Is well known in Phila
delphia on account of hor hlx years with
tho Consumers' League, patt of thn time
as secretary nnd part of the tlmn us lec
turer, went to Alaska for the solo purpose
of getting material for lectures.
"Alaska thnt you tea In tho 'movies' is
the Alaska of tho winter time," she fcuid
today "Hut tha Alaska of tho summer is
different. It is wonderful, beautiful nnd
tho flowers there are remail.abe. Tho grass
Is green, the trees nre lovely and the wild
flowers of Alaska rival tiny jnu ever saw.
It gels hot there, too, ..jmetlmes It was
101 In July. The summer labts from May,
whon the ice breaks In the Yukon, to Sep
tember, when it forms again. During that
time the people in tho cities mako mag
nificent gardens, and tho agricultural op
portunities are marvelous. The people raise
lots of lettuce, carrots and cabbage."
Alaska is tho land nf opportunities for
miners, engineers, agriculturists nnd hus
bands, according to Miss I.ane, who tays
that most of tha married women In the
country aro stenographic, school teachers
and missionaries, who went there to cam
$100 to, $150 a month in their particular
vocations nnd met splendid young engineers
and professional men ami married.
The men of Alaska aro fine specimens of
manhood," she said enthusiastically. "Most
of tho men, In the cities especially, are pro
fessional pien. They go thcie with the
avowed purpose of opening up a wonderful
country. They aie the spiiit of tho country.
Alwajs you will hear peoplo talk of the
'Spirit of Alaska.' It Is different than any
other spirit you have ever met. This Is tho
pioneer country of th9 I'nited States now.
They seem to have a mission, tiiesa men
who have gone to open this now countr.
And they are doing it. The resources of
this country aro unlimited. The opportun
ities beyond comparison."
Miss Lane sas tho food and tho cooking
in the gold mine camps sho btudled are
excellent. In fact, she said, If the men do
not have good food they will not work, and
If they will not work there will be no guld
She says the miners welcome straus-rs and
treat them with all courtesy. A meal in a
gold-mtnlng camp consists of !aup, roast
meat, four vegetables one ftesh, the others
canned tea or coffee, and uhuiia pie. She
Is enthusiastic about caribou meat, and
says it Is far superior to venison.
Miss l.ano and Mlu Dennlston traveled
In khaki suits, wearing skirts and hob
nailed leather boots which i cached to their
hips. They had no foot troubles. Miss Lane
says, because they were warned before leav
irg to wear heavy woolen ttockings and
avoid blistered heels.
