Motherhood Men in Harrisburg
Say There Is Nothing to
Railroad circles were somewhat stir
red to-day by the report that in the
event of an adverse decision regarding
passes for members of families of rail
road employes, there would be a gen
eral demand for increased wages. The
idea was laughed at by membors of
local brotherhood men in Harrisburg.
The report came from Altoona, where
meetings are being held each week in
the interest of the Federal Brotherhood
of Railway Employes. Brotherhood
men said this morning that the an
nouncement of a further demand for
more wages is false. The Brotherhoods
are not inclined to act hastily and the
only thing to do is to wait for the de
cision on the pass question. The Broth
erhoods have Just pulled through a

Commissioner Jackson Has Ar
ranged For a Start of Its
Work For State
W new Idust r1 a I
f jflbk regulations
State, will begin
lis work on February 4 when the first
of the monthly meetings will be held.
At this meeting a general outline of
the work to be handled will be made
and problems which hnvc arisen In
the administration of the factory in
spections and other laws will be taken
up. The board will fill a unique place
in State affairs as it will bo a part
of the Department of Labor and In
dustry, whose commissioner is its ex
offlclo chairman, and will afford a
place for appeal against orders issued
for changes In manufacturing plants
and at the same time have authority
to make rules in cases not specifically
mentioned in the laws. An Important
branch of the work of this new board
will be the Investigations, which may
be held anywhere in the State and the
result of which Is to be final subject
only to the courts.
Justices Needed. —Scores of ap
pointments of justices of the peace
will have to be made this winter to
fill vacancies which are turning up
among the magistrates of the State.
The adoption of the constitutional
amendments changing terms caused
more or less uncertainty in rural dis
tricts and as a result of search by
clerks of the commission books at the
Capitol It has been found that men
were not elected In November where
they should have been. The number
of declinations of office is larger than
Coal Tax Suit. —Filing of the action
in equity for a test of the constitu
tionality of the anthracite coal case
will not halt the steps by the Auditor
General's Department for collection
of the tax because the bill entered in
the case does not ask for an injunction
except after hearing. Coal producers
have until the end of this month to
file their sworn statements of pro
duction during 1913 and then the bills
will be made up and sent out from the
Capitol. Attorney General Bell will
determine during the coming week the
manner of meeting the suit, whether
a demurrer or an answer should be
filed. It is probable that the suit wilt
be argued in the Dauphin county court
within a few months and that other
coal companies will enter into the pro
ceedings in order to secure test of
questions which have arisen.
Sew Fund Ruling. Tho State
Banking Department has made a
ruling that secretaries of building and
loan associations may not arbitrarily
ereate contingent funds, but that each
shareholder must be apprised before
such a fund Is created. The reports
called for from associations contain
requirements for statements as to
funds provided under the act of 1913.
There are 1,737 such associations, of
which a very large majority are in

supervision will be outlined and a plan
worked out for submission to the next
Baldwin Busy.—State Fire Marshal
Joseph L. Baldwin and his nine depu
ties are out on the trail of several
bands of organized firebugs, which
are blamed for fires that have oc
curred recently in Potter, Tioga, Elk
and Westmoreland counties. In one
case it is suspected that a woman has
been mixing in a fire for the sake of
helping a friend get insurance, and
she will be brought back from Michi
gan to stand trial. These investiga
tions are in half a dozen towns and
are part of sixty-eight now under way
for the department. The Fire Mar
shal's men have secured fifteen indict
ments against persons to be tried with
in the next fortnight.
N'ot Heard From. —The State High
way Department officials have not yet
heard anything from the supervisors
of New Castle township, Schuylkill
county, to whom was sent the contract
for resurfacing the road which led to
the indictment of Commissioner E. M.
Blgelow and several of his officials.
The bids were opened over a wepk ago
and notice of the award sent to the
supervisors. The township must bear
a part of the expense.
Licenses Run High. The income
from the automobile licenses for 1914
thus far has run over $520,000; from
hunters' licenses $260,000, and from
oleo licenses $166,000.

that General Pratt, a former superin
tendent, is back of the movement to
oust Superintendent Friedman.
"Why, that is always the cry," he
said this morning. "Every time there
is any trouble at the school and an
investigation is intimated. General
Pratt Is blamed for being 'the man
behind the gun' by some people, who
say he wants the superintendency
again. General Pratt told me only
recently that he was glad to be free
and had no desire to be superintend
ent of any school. General Pratt Is a
man who has his whole heart in the
welfare of the Indian and takes a per
sonal interest in every movement for
the development of the race."
Mr. Wheelock was a student and an
employe at the Indian school from
1889 until 1900. He was graduated in
1896. Since Mr. Friedman has been
in charge of the school he has not had
any connection with the institution,
but he knows many of the employes
and students there. He said this
morning that some of his friends at
the school had told him on a number
of occasions that Mr. Friedman would
go away from the school for two and
three days at a time without any per
son knowing where he was and also
that he never takes any responsibility
for anything that goes wrong in the
school. If something goes wrong, said
Mr. Wheelock, "the blame will be
shifted about until it finally rests on
some other person's shoulders."
Regarding the liquor charges, Mr.
Wheelock said he believed, but was
not positive, that several charges In
volving the illegal sale of liquor to the
Indians were made while he was in
school. Continuing, he said: "There
was little cause for investigations ot
the sale of liquor because of the strict
discipline. The punishment was so
severe that the students did not want
to break the rules of the institution.
From what I can understand now, the
discipline is loose.
"While I was in school," said
Wheelock, "every man had to be In
hie room and In his night dress by
9.30 o'clock, with his clothes hanging
a certain way on a chair. At Inter
vals during the night inspections
would be made, so there was little
chance to get out for liquor or for
any other purpose."
Mr. Wheelock attended school at
the time Frank Mount Pleasant,
Frank Cayou, Edward Rogers, Levi
St. Cyr, Leander Gansworth and other
prominent athletes were students
