Application to State Commi)sion
Not Essential to the Short
In order to avoid the necessity for
special application to the Commission
for approval of changes in tariffs or
schedules of round-trip lntra-state ex
cursion fares In certain cases upon
less than thirty days' notice, the Pub
lic Service Commission has issued a
general order in uniformity with that
made by the Interstate Commerce
According to the order, fares for
an excursion, limited to a designated
period of not more than three days,
may be established without further
notice upon posting a tariff one day
in advance in _ two DUbllc and con
spicuous places in the waiting room
of each station where tickets for such
excursions are sold.
Fares for an excursion llmted to a
designated period of more than three
days and not more than thirty days
may be established upon a like notice
of three days. Fares for a series of
daily excursions, such series covering
a period not exceeding thirty days,
may be established upon like notice
of three days as to the entire series.
: A separate notice of the excursion on
i each day covered by the series need
not be given.
> Fares for an excursion limited to
I a designated period exceeding thirty
[ days will require the statutory notice,
I unless a shorter time Is allowed In
■ special cases by the Commission.

Blame For Fires
Stirs Up Debating
on First Report
Railroads as a primary cause of
forest fires were exonerated before the
State Board of Agriculture to-day by
George H. Wirt, of the Department of
Forestry, reporting as the board's spe
cialist on forestry, but objection was
taken to his remarks.
"Our experience," said Mr. Wirt,
"has been that forest fires are usually
caused by carelessness and indiffer
ence on the part of the public. Sparks
from railroads do cause some fires,
but not many. If everyone in and near
a forest will only be careful of fires
we shall have very few."
Mr. Wirt gave a general summary
of the Forestry Department's work
and particularly urged the use of the
auxiliary forest reserve taws of 1913.
It had been intended to have this
talk followed by one on "Fire Pre
vention" by Fire Marshal Joseph H.
Baldwin, but Mr. Baldwin's paper was
read yesterday by Assistant Marshal
Charles Wolf. Ex - Representative
William L. Creasy, of Catawissa, took
Issue with Mr. Wirt's exoneration of
railroads. "I never have heard it dis
puted until to-day," said he. "that
railroads cause 65 per cent, of Penn
sylvania's forest fires." He criticised
recent legislatures for not passing a
bill making railroads responsible for
fires which they start. "It was a good
English law 250 years ago. It ought
to be a good law now."
W. H. Stout, of Pincgrove, and R.
P. Heilman, of Emporium, corro
borated Mr. Creasy. Secretary of
Agriculture Critchfield said it is ex
tremely difficult to fix responsibility
for fires and that, as he has formally
recommended, a law should be passed
which would include a patrol of for
est lands by railroad corporations.
Speaking on "The Farmer afjd Leg
islation," Deputy Attorney William
Hargest traced the American laws on
market forestalling, turnpikes, arson,
etc., to English statutes which were
enacted centuries ago. The salient
features of the Pennsylvania provin
cial law of 1700, regulating fences,
are in force to-day. Daws on sheep
and dogs and other rural matters are
also of ancient character.
State's Work Told
Chiefs at Board
Last night's session brought ad
dresses by Dean John Price Jackson,
commissioner of labor and Industry;
Deputy. Secretary of Agriculture A. L.
Martin, and Mrs. Jean Kane Foulke
of West Chester. G. G. Hutchison, of
Warrior's Mark, presented his report
as specialist in feeding stuffs.
Dean Jackson gave an Interesting
summary of State's safety laws and
their relation to the farm, and he ap
pealed to the farmers to co-operate
with the department "for," said the
commissioner, "without your support
we can do little."
Mr. Martin summarized the farm
ers' institute work and the general
advisory work of the Department of
Agriculture, and Mrs. Foulke, a mem
ber of the advisory board, spoke on
her work of teaching domestic science
in the homes.
Ex-Governor Penny packer was to
speak last night, but was unuble to
be in the city.
Excellent educational addresses
closed yesterday afternoon's session
being by Secretary of Internal Affairs
Henry Houck and Superintendent of
Public Instruction N. C. Schaeflfer.
Both urged the farmers to continue
to Improve the schools.

a lump sum estimate and then pro
claim that the department had the
money to improve and maintain roads
and would not spend it.
Auditor General Powell replied that
he approximated the sum at $1,500,000,
but could not give it exactly.
Creasy loses Out
Creasy was overjoyed, but Powell
remarked that people must remember
that the Legislature appropriated the
money and that there were possibly a
score of funds in the Highway Depart
ment and that the money was appor
tioned for salaries, experimental work
and the like, including State-aid roads.
The Auditor General said frankly
that not much money was left for re
pairs of roads; in fact, very little, and
certainly not enough for this year.
This put a damper on the Demo
cratic farmer and It was worse when
Deputy Highway Commissioner Hunter
said that part of the balance was cov
ered by existing contracts for State
aid roads and that more would bo let
soon. Mr. Hunter also said that the
department had counted on the auto
mobile license money which is in con
troversy and failure to get It had put
a crimp In the work.
General Powell said he did not see
how the auto money could be secured
without legislative action.
Drag Work Held Over
The matter came to a head when
the resolutions committee reported and
It kept the board In session an hour
longer than would otherwise have
been the case. Last night Dr. Donald
McCaskey, of Lancaster, had urged
the board to request the Highway
Department to hold local conventions
all over the State and to use the split
log drag. It was decided at the time
that such a movement could come
only through the resolutions commit
tee. The committee reported to-day
that it had deferred action on such a
resolution until the May meeting in
During discussion on this G. G.
Hutchison, of Warrior's Mar(f, said the
Highway Department already had
1,100 drags, but that it had to stop
using them last summer when the
Auditor General's Department held up
the automobile license funds.*
This looked to Creasy like a good
chance. He intimated that a big sum
is available for maintenance of Sproul
routes and suggested that Auditor
General Powell be asked in to explain
matters. Not only Powell, but Deputy
Highway Commissioner Hunter was
Powell's Side of "It
Powell went Into detail to explain
his position. He said not a equisltlon
from the Highway Department lies be
fore him which has been refused. He
said he had honored requisitions on
$1,800,000 of accumulated automobile
license fees which had been specifically
appropriated and that the appro
priation which he questions is the act
appropriating automobile fees, as rap
idly as they come In, to road main
tenance. He asserted that this act is
in conflict with the specific appropri
ation act of 1909 and said ex-Attorney
General Todd, who drew the act of
1909. Is In accord with him.
"I am thorougttly honest about this,
gentlemen," he said. "The fault Is
with the Legislature for not doing Its
work properly. I want to stay where
I am and I don't want to visit John

"Then how can we get this money
for roads?" asked E. A. Studholme,
"I know of no way except to have
the Legislature meet and pass a proper
act," said Powell.
Creasy asked how much money is
now available for highway work
which is not questioned by Powell.
"I think about $1,500,000," said
Powell, "speaking from memory. But
remember that this is the total in a
number of different funds. It cannot
all be used for one purpose."

Powell said that In pruning the
Highway Department appropriations
last summer the Governor had made
the cuts in the funds for highway
work. "Had he made the cuts on the
salary list or In some other direction,"
said the Auditor General, "the sit
uation now might be different. But
we are dealing with facts, and the
real fault lies with the legislature."
The question on the automobile
license appropriation had not been
seen at the time the appropriation
bill was disposed of.
Deputy Commissioner Hunter, fol
lowing Powell, confessed that he could
say little, as he is not familiar with
the financial details, but he explained
that numerous contracts which have
been let are charged against whatever
appropriations may be available.
A committee was then appointed to
confer with Powell and the Highway
Department and determine the sit
uation as accurately as possible. It
consists of J. H. Schuitz, of Norris
