NEW READ! YARDS
READY EOR TRAFFIC
St. Clair Improvement Will Be In
spected by Local Officials
Weather permitting, Superintend
ent R. J. .Stackhouse, of tho Philadel
phia and Reading Railway, with other
officials, will visit the new classifica
tion yards at St. Clair during the next
ten days,. These yards, said to be the
largest gravity yards In tho world,
are practically ready for business, but
the date for the formal opening will
be announced later.
The yards, it i& believed, will bring
about a large increase of business at
Rutherford and other points. An
thracite coal trains will bo run
through to Harrisburg and from Ruth
erford south and west, as solid trains,
permitting ome trains to bo handled
each day. The yards have been In pro
gress of building for nearly five years
and the total cost of this big Improve
ment Is estimated at $2,000,000.
Tho yards lie along the foothills of
Broad Mountain in Mill Creek Valley,
between St. Clair and Port Carbon, and
will be known as the St. Clair yards
and will be operated almost entirely
by gravity. They tap about three
fifths of the entire anthracite area of
Pennsylvania. The Reading system
carries the bulk of the coal mined be
tween the Schuylkill and the Susque
hanna rivers and from Schuylkill
Haven and Shamokin. This amounts
to about 1,000,000 tons a month.
The cars are daily assembled and
classified for destination to the
branches of the Reading road. Trains
go through without breaking and cars
are dropped in their exact order at
unloading points on the route. Move
ment at the yards is about 1,000 emp
ties and 1,000 loaded cars a day.
The yards are divided into the north
and southbound divisions, with twelve
tracks for each and minor trackage
to tho ash section, coal pits, engine
house, coal dock and other places,
There are four extra tracks for the
storage of locomotives. Damaged cars
are assembled into special trains and
sent to tho repair shops.

est in over a decade. Mild weather
was the causa of the falling off.
New Wireless Record. —By the in
stalling of a new sending and receiv
ing apparatus, the Lackawanna Rail
road yesterday succeeded in breaking
all previous records for distance in
wireless train communication. Here
tofore, the radius of operation was

ARON CASE ARGUED
IN DAUPHIN COURT
Interesting Question as to Right to
Salary For Full Term Now
Up to Judge
.JMWk* priatlon of the'full
|h JDWeefS. lutive session to a
member who has
the mandamus proceeding brought by
Representative Max Aron, of Philadel
phia, to compel Auditor General A. W.
Powell to pay him $1,500 and mileage
for his service. Mr. Aron succeeded
John 11. Rlebel, the "father of tha
House," who died in the middle of
the session, and the Legislature mada
an appropriation to pay him the full
salary and also to pay the Riebel
estate the amount the deceased m«m
ber would have drawn had ho lived.
Auditor General Powell asked an
opinion of the Attorney General's De
partment and was informed that Aron
could be paid only for the portion of
the term he served, or $792. Aron
offered to accept $1,092, which, ha
claimed, would be the salary under
the ruling of the legal department,
but he contended that the $792 waa
not what he was entitled to.
In the argument to-day Jolin H.
Fow, counsel for Aron, contended that
tlio Legislature had tho right to make
the appropriation as it did and that a
specific appropriation being made and
approved by tho Governor for the full
salary to Aron it must be paid.
Deputy Attorney General J. E. B.
Cunningham set forth that the Stat a
could not make gifts and that tha
salary could be only for tho servica
