RACE RESULTS IN DEATH
Freight and Automobile Meet on
Three women wcro killed and n

Tho dead urn:
jlrs. Mary liessell of Altoona.
Miss Ann.c Iiesseli, aged liltee.il, Mrs.
Aliss Frames Secrist of Altoona.
The injured are: Walter AziiiRer,
proprietor of the Franklin hotel, Al
toona, right leg broken, injured in
ternally, taken to Altoona hospital,
and Mrs. Walter Azinger, injured in
ternally, taken to the hospital.
Tho party was in Azinger's. ear and
was motoring from Huntingdon to
Hollidaysburg. For a mile or more
the road runs parallel with the Penn
sylvania rall.-oad tracks from tho
Canoe Creek crossing. When Azinger
was about a half mile from the cross
ing lie saw the long freight train, a
short distance ahead.
Azinger wished to reach Hollidays
burg before dark and did not wish to
be delayed by tho long rreight train.
He threw on the highest speed and
the race for the crossing was on.
When the automobile was in the mid
dle of the crossing the train crashed
Into it. hurling all the occupants from
Special Session Ends and Regu
ONLY .FEW MINUTES ELAPSE
Edfle" Taken Off Monday's Cere
monies Because of Long Protracted
Special Session Much Work Ahead.
For the first time in many years
congress on Monday stepped over
from one session into another with
out a break In the routine and in con
sequence the interest usually sur
rounding the opening of a new con
gress w;.s absent.
The sbLond or regular session ol
the sixiy-tliird congress was ushered
In bv formal oroclaination of the vice
president and speaker in the senate
President Wilson aUDeared at 1
o'clock on Tuesday to read his annual
message at a Joint session in the house
chamber. Aside from this formality
the first days of the new session will
be scarcely distinguishable from the
closing days of the old.
The extra session just ended was
limited, by informal agreements with
President Wilson, to the considera
tion of tariff and currency reform, and
nothing that might interfere with
these issues was taken up. The cur
rency bill still dominates the sltua-
tlrm llin new session begins but the
administration program of anti-trust
and railroad legislation, wiucn is 10
follow, must share the field with a
Bcore or more of other Important sub-
It is the hope of the Democratic
leaders that the currency bill can be
riiuiinneri nf In the senate by tho end
of Ueceniher and can be completed
by both houses of congress and s:gnel
,v ti.e ni-esident in January. In an
ticipation of this the plans for anti
trust legislation will be taken up mm
wsek by President Wilson, in confer
ence with Representative Clayton,
Senator Newlands and other members
of the judiciary and Interstate com
merce committees of the two houses.
Other important projects include:
Further regulation of railroads as to
rates and stock issues, government
owned railroads for Alaska, regulation
of trading in cotton and grain futures,
federal aid for vocational education,
PRtahllshment of a system of rural
land banks, independence of the Phil
ippines, constitutional amendment foi
woman's suffrage, regulation 01 worn
ing conditions of merchant sailors
legislation to promote safety at sea:
two battleship naval program, estab
lishment of a federal armor-making
imod roads legislation, investi
gation of cost-of-living problems and
all the annual appropriation bins.
The hill to give San Francisco
water supply rights in Hetch-Hetchy
valley, over which a conservationists
fight has waged for more than a year,
is set for a vote in the senate Dec. 8.
Another agreement calls for consider
ation immediately afterward of the
bill to authorize construction of gov
ernment railroads in Alaska. A Blmllar
measure has been ravorauiy acieu
noon by a committee of the house.
These bills, with the "seaman's servi
tude" bill which recently passed the
senate, probably will be the first meas
ures of a general character considered
Investigations to determine the
cause of increased prices in food prod
ucts are expected to begin soon.
Resolutions demanding such inquiries
are now before congress.
President Wilson lias indicated his
keen interest in the development of a
system of rural land hanks or credit
agencies that would meet the needs
nf f-mint.rv districts more adequately
than can existing commercial hanks.
Tim rwent recommendations of the
commission that studied rural credit
systems of other countries have em
n'hnslzed the need of such a system.
It is expected that soon after the pas
sage of the currency reroriu bill llio
work of devising an adequate system
of rural banks will be undertaken by
congress and an effort made to enact
legislation before adjournment next
Plans have not vet been matured by
ihe administration for tho handling of
the Philippine problem. It is expected
that renewed efforts will be made
early In the senate to pledge congress
to a measure giving early lime
nendenee to the islands. This light
will be led by Representative Jones
of Virginia, chairman of the house
filiimittee on Insular affairs.
Tlio new session probably will wit-
hess more activity prior to Christmas
than any session of recent years. Dein
ocrat'.' lenders propose to hold the
senate to thirteen-hour sesslpns, with
no Christmas vacation unless1 tlm cur
rency bill is passed before the time
set for the holiday. In the house
meantime an effort will be made to
dispose of several of the annual ap
propriation bills before Christmas so
that appropriation legislation will In
terfere as little as possible with til-'
consideration of other matters.
No Union of Brotherhoods.
F.mphiitlc deninl that the five rail
road brotherhoods are to he united
in one railroad organization was made
in Altoona. Pa., by W. H. Pierce,
president of the Brotherhood of Loco
motive Firemen and Kngiiioinen.
"There is iitolutely no truth in such
a report," ht declared.
ASKS FOR TWO
Secretary Daniels Submits First
Report to President
NAVAL PROGRAM IS REDUCED
Uncle Sam Won't Be Rich Enoujh to
Go Too Far, Secretary Declares.
Naval , Holiday Idea Is Indorsed.
In his first annual report to tho
president Secretary of the Navy Dan
iels recommends a navy building pro
gram considerably less than that
recommended by the navy general
Two dreadnoughts, eight destroyers
and three submarines is as much as
Uncle Sam's pocketbook will stand ac
cording to the present estimate of
revenues, according to the secretary.
Despite tills curtailment the naval sec
retary believes the program he recom
mends Is a progressive one.
Regarding his building program Sec
retary Daniels says in part:
"With the authorization or two or.
th lareest battleshlDS ever construct
ed, before the close of the present
administration, the united btaies win
have enough ships to have always a
creditable and capable fleet In both
the Pacific and the Atlantic oceans.
These, together with the smaller ships
under construction, will make the
American navy one of strength and
power, ready for the protection ot
American Bhores and American in
terests. "Those who bid us stand still in
construction will not approve this con-
servative program. Those who wish
to hasten more rapidly in construction
will not give it their approval. It has
been recommended, after mature con
sideration, as a middle course of wis
Second only in interest to the sec
retarv's building program is an In
dorsement of Winston Churchill's pro
posed "naval holiday," with a recom
mendation that the United Males
take the initiative snfcTthat President
Wilson ask congress to authorize him
to Invite all the powers to a confer
ence to disruss the project.
In Indorsing a naval holiday the
"The growing cost of dreadnoughts.
of powder and of everything that
makes an ellicient navy give reason
for pause. This heavy expense com
mands national and international con
sideration. The naval appropriation
has doubled in thirteen years and yet
this country haB not joined the ex
pensive competition and race for over
large navies to the same extent as
have some other great nations.
"I venture to recommend that tho
war and naval officials and other rep
resentatives of all the nations be in
vited to hold a conference to discuss
whether they cannot agree upon a
plan for lessening the cost of prepara
tion for war.
"I trust the tentative suggestion for
a naval holiday by the strongest of
the powers will be debated and the
matter seriously considered by an in
ternational conference looking to re
duction of the ambitious and costly
plans for navy Increase. I trust that
this country will take the Initiative
and that steps will bo taken by a
conference of all the powers to dis
cuss reduction of the heavy cost of
the army and navy."
Immediate acquirement and opera
tion of oil wells and refineries to fur
nish fuel for the navy, government
manufacture of armor, more naval
chaplains, better educational facilities
for enlisted men and a graduated re
tirement law are the other chief
The secretary thinks that tho time
has como when the navy should he
freed from excessive prices charged
by prlvato manufacturers of armor
plate, guns and gun forglngs, powder,
torpedoes and other supplies and
munitions, so ho recommends appro
priations for an armor plate factory
and an increase In the gun factory,
the powder factory and torpedo works.
NO GINGER TO BUSINESS
Situation Is Flat Because of Prevail
Dun's Review of Trade says this
"Lessened activity In industrial
channels reflects prevailing uncertain
tv rcuardlne the future. The distribu
tion of merchandise for immediate re
quirements coptinues large, but re
trenchment rather than expansion
characterizes the situation. Caution
in entering upon forward commit
ments In general and new enterprises
are limited, while economy is prac
ticed in numerous quarters. Labor Is
not so well employed and more ma
chinery is idle in iron and steel, the
leading mills now running consider
ably below their full capacity.
"Curtailment of operations results
mainly from the restricted buying on
the part of the transporting com
panies, which experienced difficulty In
obtaining needed funds for equipment
and extensions. The opening of tho
eastern freight rate Inquiry and the
beginning of the currency debate In
the senate attracted attention."
