Held; Brother of Girl Made
Headed by Constable John Gibb, a
squad of officers, consisting of Chief of

The raid followed a visit to the
Myers street house by John Helman,
of 1436 Vernon street, Harrisburg,
and a party of friends. Young Hel
man, a youth scarcely out of his 'teens,
says he is a brother of the Bierbower
woman and that he called on her last

the life which he says she is leading.
When he asked admittance at the
house, he says, he was ordered away.
He went to the office of Squire Gard
ner, where he swore out Information

With Councilman Stees in the chair,
In the absence of President J. V. W.
Keynders, Borough Council last even
ing- held a busy session. C. S. Davis
and R. M. Rutherford, as a committer
from the Municipal League, were given
the privilege of the iloor. Chairman
Davis requested Council to allow the
Municipal League to co-operate with
them in the development of a compre
hensive park system for the borough.
. "If you can't give the people parks,
give them breathing spaces, at least,
was the keynote of Professor Davis' re
marks. He outlined how, with the ex - -
genditure of a small sum of money,
eautiful drives and shady paths could
be laid out in the Kelker plot and
about the borough reservoir. E. C.
Williams, a rising young engineer, fol
lowed Professor Davis' remarks by of
fering to draw plans and lay out drives
through the park If he would be fur
nished the necessary lines and grades.
The question of park development was
referred to the finance and town prop
erty committees.
DIAOUNM Motor \ ppni'lTLU*
Councilman Capella started a lengthy
discussion about providing motor ap
paratus to replace all the present fire
apparatus in the borough. He said he
favored the issuing bonds for a sum
sufficient to replace the present appa
ratus all at one time. The town prop
erty committee was Instructed to pre
pare an estimate as to the cost of re
placing the present apparatus.
The finance committee reported that
the cost of the standard system of
street lighting was prohibitive for the
borough at this time, and the contract
with the Harrisburg Light and Power
Company was then renewed for another
year. The highway committee was in
structed to remove two street lights
south of Trewlck street, In the West
Side, and place them at Conestoga and
Bailey and somewhere in South street.
Councilman Zimmerman suggested that
Conestoga street be paved instead of

"Some time ago many of my friends

Calmly Awaiting Someone
With a Key
A quick run of the Citizen Fire
Company to Third and Boas streets
this morning on a supposed alarm of
flre that came over the telephone
shortly before 7 o'clock, resulted In
the discovery that everything was in
tact at that point. Investigation dis
closed that the early morning run was
due to a misinterpretation of a tele
phone call. The Citizen company is
preparing to give a fair at Third and
Boas streets und this morning a driver
for Hoffer and Garman stopped at the
place with several bags of flour,
which will be converted into cakes
and other edibles at the proper time.
The driver, finding the door locked,
called up the citizen flre company
and Engineer Fagan answered the
"There's a flre up here at Third and
Boas. Come up," was what he thought
he heard, and no time was lost In get
ting the apparatus under way. Arriv
ing at Third and Boas the flremeu
found the driver for the wholesale
grocery house calmly awaiting their
arrival. "Where's the flre?" they ask
ed, dashing up. "Fire? What flre?"
was the reply. "I just telephoned you
fellows that I had some flour to de
liver. Here it Is. Unclock the door,
will you?"
"Flour" doesn't sound a lot like
"flre"; but to an alert fireman all tele
phone calls have a potentiality.

seventy delegates assembled there this
morning. The Governor was to make
an address this morning.
It was nearly noon before the dele
gates had decided to let a committee
of seven go over the proposed consti
tution, which, In the tentative state
proposed by the framers, would fix a
sliding scale of dues and number of
delegates from participating societies
at each meeting, giving the larger or
ganizations the most delegates. Dele
gates from some of the, smaller com
munities object to this on the ground
that it would make the organization
too one-sided, throwing its weight to
Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.
C. Phillips Hill, Pittsburgh, present
ed an Interesting address this morn
ing on the workings of a housing com
mittee, in which a very practical ex
position of the methods employed in
bettering the condition of "the other

Mayor John K. Royal Welcomed the
delegates at the opening session yes
terday afternoon. Pennsylvania is the
worst housed State in the country, de
clared Bernard J. Newman, secretary
of the Philadelphia Housing Commis
sion, at yesterday afternoon's session.
He gave a detailed description of un
sanitary conditions In cities and towns
where underdrainage is the rule. He
dwelt on the prevalence of stream
pollution in rural districts and spoke
of overcrowding in the larger cities,
where the poor are herded like cnttl"
Before the formal opening of the
convention Gilford Pinchot, of con
servation fame, traced the connection
between slum homes and the nation's
reckless waste of raw building ma
terial. The rise in the cost of homes,
said Pinchot, touches the whole prob
lem of national resources.
Another speaker at yesterday's ses
sion was Mrs. Franklin P. lams, Pitts
burgh, who was requested to outline a
tentative legislative program. There
are too many laws In Pennsylvania
now, she said, and what we want to
do is to sit back for ten years and
not make any more, but spend the
time weeding out the useless ones.

Death by Fellow Officer
Paris, April 7. —Maurice Delacroix,
an inspector of police, shot and killed
his comrade and intimate friend, In
