Break Up. Jam
Thousands of persona hurrying office
ward this morning bv- trolley and meter
from the northern part, of the city '
were neia up fltty-flre minutes by a
"fire test" in Bread street which did
net come off. t
The Rapid Transit Company, hun
dreds of .motorists and trolley riders
are voicing loud complaints about the
delay, which apparently resulted from
a misunderstanding et orders.
Bread street, from Diamond street
te Branchtewn, was closed te all
traffic at 8:Bft o'clock. Fer nearly an
hour a constantly.grewlng'llne of auto
mobiles, eaualled in fourth h n Mn.
stantlv crewing line of trolleys, waited
imjwucuuj xer wora.irem,tne patrol
men in charge that they might proceed.
Motorists and excited passengers en
trolleys were informed that' the test
would be "ever ,in six minutes." The
"six minutes" were multiplied nearly
ten times, yet the speeding fire engines
never flashed by the involuntary spec
tators. , ,
Angry Men Break tm
After almost' an 'hour the motorists
themselves broke the barricade, driving
through the police lines in -spite of
efforts of patrolmen te step them, and
proceeded en their wav.
1 Once the barricade was broken the
patrolmen let the. stalled trolley cars
cress Bread street, and every1 one get
te work mere than 'an hour late. The
delay meant money te busy f men who
were xercea te miss important engagements,-
', "' I ' .r
The transit lines worst affected were
Nes. 08 and 24 en - Yerk read and1 Ne.
75 en the Olney route. ' -
Rapid Transit Cemvany officials
complained that they had been given no
advance notice of the .tests. .
' 'Every one concerned "passed the
buck!' when asked why the city's'
principal thoroughfare had been blocked
for nearly an hour at one of the busiest
times, of the day, except Director. Cor Cer Cor
telyeu, head of the Department ' of
Public Safety. ' 7
The Director made a premvt investi
gation when complaint was made te
him and admitted frankly that there
had. been an unfortunate ''mix up" in
"There was no excuse for a delay of
that length of time." said the Director.
"Such a test Shouldnet take mere than
six minutes. As a matter' of fact, the
test was net held. It was postponed
until 1 o'clock this afternoon, when it
was held ever 'the some course.
"Official Course" Used
"There were six pieces of apparatus
te be tested. The specifications require
that the fire apparatus shall be able te
run ever the distance between Diamond
street and Olney avenue in a specified
time. This course is enjoined in the
"It has been measured and surveyed
and the grade reckoned, and is used
In all such tests. It is Important that
epparatua be tested under city condi
tions, within the city limits, se that
before accepting' apparatus we can be
sure that it will make the speed re
quired. "This morning the street was in bad
Smdltlen, damp and slippery. Tbe
en in, charge decided it would be dan dan
iereus te held he test.-' .
. 'Through some-misunderstanding the
men who. were heldln 'back the traffic
did net '.receive word that the .test wu
off. Hence the' delay. All I ran say
is- that..' I. am .' sorry 'it happened, and
tbat it' won't occur again."
' Others Jape -"Didn't Knew"

Besides the speed test, two ether tests
were 'held this afternoon. There was a
demonstration at the Fire Scheel nt

' Washington, "Nev.- 20. The- session
of Congress that opened at' neon today
isenlya curtain 'raiser for the special
session' of ;the newly 'elected Congress
that'Witl be held next spring. President
Harding' and his close advisers all. ac
knowledge privately" that the special
session .will .be" inevitable. The nre-
gressivea .who, are forming a bloc., and
wae,wui neia a cenierenve iiv iecwn
bet. iri determined te, force one. . -
At thit special session all the high
oelltlcs .which win nrelude'the national
campalgn'eM02 will' be played 'The
rate enne major ponies wui oe.cMur ee.cMur
mined and the question. whether a tflhl
party will tenter the field in the 'next
national 'election, or whether blofijtc blefijtc blofijtc
tien within the parties and the next na
tional cnnvchtlens, by labor and the
mere radical farmers acting together
will be developed, will be gradually set
tled. On the part of President Harding
and the mere, regular Republicans the
cuert In this session will be directed to
ward accomplishing as many resulta as
they can, net se much for the purpose
of avoiding an extra session, for one is
conceded te be necessary, ns for the
purpose of getting as much of their
program as possible adopted while they
have the votes.
Ship Subsidy BUI In Balance
President Harding must get his Ship
Subsidy -Bill through before March 4
or net at all. After March the'balance
pf power in both Houses will pose te
Senater La .Follette and his. friends,
and they have announced, their deter
mination te beat the ship subsidy. The
general belief. Is that Mr. Harding's
bill' will ' pass the Heuse,, where, tne
rules give the majority control' or the
situation and favor quick; action. cBu
the opponents of the subsidy will prob
ably be able 'te' beat' it in the. 8enate
and . se. delay ."all . ether, measures .that
the.paseje et. some essential; Supply
bills in )h.ls session -will -be Impossible.
,If Mr.-' Harding' wishes te '.pass.-any
of 'the farm, bloc program' in this ses
sion .he. will, probably 'jweeeed, in "jleJWg
it, ,-for 'all'. factions of all parties ';nre
mere- or less agreed tliut..the.. farmers
slieuld'.have, the. legtelatlQatwbUh.they
dtflre.. Th,e farm blpe'lUyt'ef MllaMa
lqqg.'one.-hewcver, and-It Is 'jet lkely
that tme can ' be" found te 'passtliem
before March '4. The Rural; Credits
Bill, which. creates a banking.. system
te supplement the Federal Reserve Sys
tem, will probably Kct through. tBeme
start will te made, en railroad legisla
tion, ' ,
But here Mr. Harding jind the left
wing of his party are far apart. One
side desires te stiffen the Eseh-Cummins
act; and the ether te repeal it.
Ne compromise Is possible nnd'thelena
wrangling ever the ship subsidy ana
ever the bonus perhaps will prevent any
definite" action en the great questions
et railroad votes, railroad consolida
tions and anti-strike Iogtlatlen.
Benus Bill te Be Revived ,
The Benus Bill Will be used until
March 4 chiefly te clog ' the legis
lative works. The advocates, of the
measure have no desire te pass it new.
They will be stronger in the special ses
sion, strong enough probably, te pass It
ever the' President's veto. w And , for
various reasons it will be politics te
leave the power tq meke -a. law- in
the hands of its supporters. '
The main object of 'a majority of
Congress, In this session Will be te 'de
as little as possible wltb'the greatest
possible noise. The Issues upon which
itartles will divide and which blocs will
le formed will be clarified in 'the next
three months. The big polices of 1024
will emerge. The fight for the control
of (he Republican Party" and If or" 'the
support of tbe agricultural vote began
at neon today. It will become clearer
aa the months go by. x.
The prospects at present ere against
the growth of a third party out efxthe
