Franklin Coitftff "Bad Men" Who Kille
LXXXIII— \No. 30
Chamber of Commerce, Improve
ment and Municipal Leagues
Are in the Fight
Death Trap to Hundreds of Work
men Shown by Slides at
Big Mass Meeting
Unanimous action favoring: a sub
way beneath the Pennsylvania Rail
road tracks at Division street the
only logical entrance to Wildwood
Park —was taken last night at a large
ly attended mass meeting held in
Camp Curtin school building by the
West End Improvement League, pre
sided over by Robert A. Enders.
In this move the West End boost
ers were given emphatic endorsement
by Mayor John K. Royal, and repre
sentatives of the Marrlsburg Chamber
of Commerce, Municipal League and
Citizens' Association of Riverside.
Facts substantiating the arguments
of the members of the West End Im
provement League were presented in
an interesting and intelligent manner
by George Tippett, a member of the
committee which for several months
has been planning to have Division
street opened for the accommodation
of the public, with the necessary cross
ing and protection, until such time as
better facilities can be provided.
Pictures Prove Point
Mr. Tippett, with the aid o' stere
opticon views, showed Wildwood Park
and its surroundings, including the at
tractive scenery and entrances to the
park, and then presented a series of
pictures to prove the value of Division
Btreet as an entrance to Wildwood
Park, showing how this was impas
sable because of the blockade of thir
ty-two tracks, a crossing half way
over that is blocked all t\e time with
cars and the lack of a watchman for
protection of pedestrians.
Mr. Tippett in his-remarks said that
the Pennsylvania Railroad Company
practically stole Division street for its
own use and said in part:
Only Two Outlets
"The West End section starts at
Forster street and ends at Division
street. In this territory there are 41,-
000 people and but two unobstruc\ed
outlets from the west to the east side
of the railroad, at Herr street and
Maclay street.
"Below Forster street there are only
21,000 people with five outlets to the
Eastern section of the city. State
Btreet, Market street. Mulberry street.
Paxton street and Dock street bridges
have been provided.
"To get to Wildwood Park one now
must pay a 10 cent car fare to the
Linglestown road or walk two or more
miles to the upper end of AVildwood
Park, or walk by way of Maclay and
Cameron streets, a distance of two
Division Street Jx>gical Entrance
"If Harrisburg's reputation for its
excellent park system is to be con- 1
tinued and facilities afforded for easy
access to Wildwood Park, then Divi
sion street is the only logical entrance
and should be provided with a sub
"In addition to the need for this '
improvement in order to add to the 1
value of Wildwood Park as an attrac
tive place to visit with its large lake, '
beautiful natural scenery and fiorai !
beauties, there is a class of men who 1
need consideration.
"The Pennsylvania Railroad has
committees going up and down their
system for the purpose of providing
safety first methods for the protec- ,
tlon of life and limb, but these com
mittees are overlooking Division street
with its blocked crossing, making it
necessary for from 300 lo 400 men to
climb over cars lo get to and from

Situation Unprecedented Since
Outbreak of Internal
U. S. Soldiers, However, on Border
Will Remain on Duty For
Some Time
By Associated Press
Washington, D.' C., Feb. 4. The
right to ship arms and ammunition
across the American boundary Into
Mexico through the regular channels
of commerce to-day was extended to
both the forces of the Huerta govern
ment and the constitutionalists —a sit
uation ynprecendented since the first
outbreak of internal hostilities in that
republic in November, 1910.
Instructions went forth to customs
agents of the American government
along the border, as well as to the
army officers in charge of the border
patrol, notifving them of the procla
mation by President Wilson raising
the embargo on arms.
The border patrol insofar as it has
been preventing the smuggling of
arms, may now relax its vigilance to
some extent, though its services still
will be required to prevent maraud
ing bands from crossing the inter
national line or to keep armed com
batants from moving back and forth
from one country Into the other.
Unlike Any Situation
The status of the arms question is
unlike any situation that has hitherto
existed, though its operation will re
semble more closely than anything
else the state of affairs existing be
fore the joint resolution of Congress
of March 14, 1912, was put into effect.
Whereas the United States at that time
permitted consignments of arms to
pass through at those customs houses
held by the, regularly constituted gov
ernment, it allowed no shipments
through other ports of entry even
though occupied for months by revo
lutionarv forces. The constitution
alists hold most of the customs houses

Would 1 Prohibit Divorce
in AH United States by
Constitutional Amendment
By Associated Press
Washington. D. C., Feb. 4.—Divorce
with the right to remarry would be
prohibited forever in the United States
and in all places under the nation's
jurisdiction by an amendment to the
federal Constitution proposed in tht>
Senate to-day by Senator Ransdeli, of
Louisiana. Enactment of uniform di
vorce laws for all States and Terri
tories, with provision for separation
without permission to remarry, would
be directed by the amendment.
"If the United States were to write
in the Constitution an amendment pro
hibiting absolute divorce, said the sen
ator, "it would not be taking such a
radical step as might at first be
thought, but would be following a
beaten path. Our own State of South
Carolina —all honor to her—forbids
divorce. It is absolutely prohibited in
Italy, Spain and to two-thirds of the
population of Austria-Hungary, while
the Latin American countries of Mex
ico, Argentine Republic, Brazil, Peru,
Chile and others have similar laws."
Baltimore, lid., Feb. 4.—The con
dition of Congressman Bremner, of
New Jersey, who has been lying at the
point of death for several days at a

weaker to-day. No hope whatever
was held out for so much as a tem
porary recovery and his death was
momentarily expected.

Commissioner of Parks Taylor An
nounces Plan For Solv
ing Problem
To Be Paid From Loan; From
Verbeke to Calder Streets
Section to Go
One whole block of the "Hardscrab
ble" district will likely he removed
to make way for a great city play
ground along the river front.
From Verbeke to Calder streets is
the block Intended for the purpose.
Funds for the project, should the
movement be successful, will be pro
vided from the SIOO,OOO park and
playground improvement loan.
By this plan the "Hardscrabble"
problem could be partially solved, a
fine playground Ideally located In a
congested district provided, and the
necessary money for the Improvement
made easily available, it Is believed.
Details of the scheme and the ques
tion of the legal status of the proposed
move are matters that are yet to be
worked out.
If the plan proves feasible the initial
! steps will be taken just as soon as the
| money is obtained by the issue of the
park improvement bonds.
■ | Taylor Announces His Plan
Ij Announcement of this Idea was
made yesterday by City Commissioner
Al. Harvey Taylor, superintendent of
parks and public property, following
a tour of inspection over the "Hard
scrabble" district and the adjacent
' water front with Park Commissioner
William E. Bailey and J. R. Hoffert,
assistant superintendent and engineer
for the park board.
"Of course the plans are only ttenta
tlve as yet," said Commissioner Tay
lor, "hut I've gone over the ground
with Mr. Bailey and the park board
engineer and to my mind the scheme
is an excellent one.
"Unquestionably It would help solve
the 'Hardscrabble' problem, I think.
Then, too, it will give the city a play
ground In a district where It will be
badly needed and where It will be
splendidly located. ,
Playground Along River Front
"Could one think of a better place
for a playground than along the Sus
quehanna—especially when Harris
burg's river front is finished? Moth
ers could take their children there and
enjoy not only the river scenery, the
air, the trees and so on, but they
would have the added advantage of
being at hand while their little ones
are at play."
"How would the city acquire the
ground? Has any line of action been
decided upon?" Commissioner Taylor
was asked.
"No, not yet. As I said before the
whole idea is only in the formative
stage as it were, and the details are
yet to be worked out. The city solici
tor will be asked as to how we could
"Would the properties in question
be acquired by condemnation proceed
Pay For It From Pnrk I/oan
"That Is the way It would be done
I've no doubt unless we could pur
chase the property In question to as
good, or better advantage. But as I
say, I'm not sure just what method
of procedure will be adopted along
that line."
"The money could be provided for
from the park loan, couldn't It?"
"Yes, that Is the only way, I sup
pose, that the funds could he pro
vided. The double purpose of elimi
nating the 'Hardscrabble' district or a
portion of It at least, and at the same
time helping to continue the park and
playground system, can be readily
"My view of the matter is that we
should try to get the upper section of
Hardscrabble —that portion lying be
tween Verbeke and Calder streets,"
concluded the Commissioner of Parks,
"that would provide wide, ample space
for a fine playground. Just when the
matter will come to a head I can't say
but we're working on the details
