plans to leave about July 1 and will
make the trip at his own expense. It
is his plan to visit the departments
dealing with factory inspection, safety,
labor, employment and other subjects
In London, Paris, Brussels, Berlin and
other capitals and to obtain ideas of
the manner of conducting their work.
A series of conferences has been
held at the department lately by com
mittees representing various indus
tries, with a view to working out safe
ty plans and establishing codes of
rules which can be passed upon by
the State Industrial Board. Over a
dozen branches of industry have thus
been taken care of and their rules
will soon be acted upon.
A hearing will be held by the State
Industrial Board before long on the
proposed code to govern the construc
tion and operation of "movie" thea
Censors Prepare.—The State Board
of Censors, which is charged with the
duty of passing upon the films and
views for picture shows in the State,
will begin the enforcement of the
censorship act on June 1 and exhibit
ors displaying films which have not
had State approval will place them
selves In danger of being fined. The
board has drawn up a set of rules and
standards and the si* film exchanges
in the State and practically all of the
exhibitors have been given notice of
the intention to enforce the act. In
spectors will lie detailed on the first
of next month to ascertain whether
films have been approved.
Tabulate Bids. Seven clerks are
now engaged in tabulating the bids
received by the State Board of Public
Grounds and Buildings for the con
tracts for supplies to departments of
the State government and the General
Assembly, and it will take two weeks
at least to complete the list. The
board had 139 bidders, more than ever
known before, and over 2,500 items
were bid upon, some of them being
subdivided, while in some cases a
dozen or more bids were made on one
item. The contracts • Involve about
$150,000 and will extend for the year
beginning June 1. Tons of paper and
all kinds of maintenance supplies for
the Capitol and the other buildings
of the State in this city, as well as
labor for clearing away snows, are
covered by the contracts which will be
Commanders on Alert. —According
to unofficial reports which have been
received here there has been marked
activity among National Guard officers
in bringing their commands up to the
Rtrength authorized by law at this
time on their own hook. If the Guard
should be called to mobilize within
the next ten days most of the organi
zations would have all the men the law
requires and allows. Many of the com
manders have reported that veterans
of the Spanish and Philippine services
have offered to enlist if a call comes,
but the men taken in are mostly young
men who have not served before and
who are eager for training. The men
of the four Twelfth Infantry com
panies which were converted into cav
alry troops are now being examined
for service and will get their equip
ments in about six or eight weeks.
Extend Flood Service. The State
Water Supply Commission has ex
tended the system of flood warnings,
which were given a thorough test dur
ing the high water several weeks ago
in the Susquehanna valley, to the
eastern part of the State. The Schuyl
kill river has recently been provided
with three gauging stations, one at
Schuylkill Haven and one at Reading
and one on the Little Schuylkill at
Mollno. They will be in service this
summer. The Lehigh river has been
inspected and a reconnoissance made
to determine the best places for sta
tions. which it is planned to establish
on that stream before long. When
the Lehigh has been taken care of a
study of the Delaware river will be
undertaken and gauging stations lo
cated. This will probably be finished
in the Fall. A complete system was
established In the Susquehanna valley
soon after the Ulman act was passed
carrying SIO,OOO for the purpose. The
next Legislature will be asked to pro
vide for extension of the system.
Up to Boards. Attorney General
John C. Bell has Informed Dr. Nathan
C. Sehaeffer, State Superintendent of
Public Instruction, that the act of
1885, fixing compensation of collec
tors of school tax, is superseded as far
as second, third and fourth class dis
tricts are concerned by the school code
cf 1911, which gives the directors the
right to fix the compensation. As the
act of 1885 specified percentages that
should form the compensation and the
school code does not. a question arose.
The Attorney General finds that the
compensation is discretionary with
school directors, but quotes the decis
ion of Justice Potter in the Hanover
township school district case, which
said that the school code "contem
plates the exercise of reasonable dis
cretion by the school board in the in
terest of the public." The language
of the code Is noc to be taken as vest
ing in school boards any arbitrary
discretion to be used in defiance of
public interest in fixing the pay or
compensation of collectors.
Boroughs Complain.—A complaint
by the boroughs of Ashland, Girard
ville, Mahanoy City and Shenandoah
was filed with the Public Service Com
mission to-day against-the Schuylkill
Railway Company. The service, fa
cilities, rules, regulations and practices
of the company are characterized as
unsafe, inadequate, insufficient, unjust
Peterson Case Up. The case of
Mike Peterson, serving from two and
a half to three years for larceny In
this county, is before the State Board
of Pardons for rehearing next Wed
nesday. There are twenty-three new
cases including one application for
commutation from Bucks county,
which is protested.
Obtained Conviction. The State
Fire Marshal's Department has re
ceived word that Mrs. Goodrich, charg
ed with arson in burning her hoifte in
Huntingdon county, has been con
victed. This was a hard-fought case
and a big feather for the department.
New Justices. William T. Ward
has been appointed justice at Ridley
Park ahd Frank J. Stahl at Hughes

lic Service Commission will begin Its

ous contracts will be placed on the

factor In to-day's results—Steelton.
Altoona was a newcomer. Very little
is known about this school except that
the team has won meets and carried
New faces this year came also from
Millersburg. Ellzabethvllle and Lykens.
In the upper end of the county In
creased interest has been manifested
in track athletics and coaches have
been busy for a year preparing ath
letes for the meet to-day.
As in the past the Harrisburg Track
Athletic Committee under whose aus
pices the State high school track
meets are held, had an able corps of
officials. Men who know athletics and
how to take care of a big crowd of
athletes were in charge.
Added interest in the result of to
day's meet came in the fight for the
high school championship shield
Reading, by winning the meet to-dav
would be entitled to the shield without
any further argument, having won the
trophy twice. A new rule, however
adopted by the track athletic commit
tee, has caused some controversy and
should Central High or Steelton High
win out this afternoon Reading in
tends to register one big kick and will
demand that another contest be held
to decide the winner of the shield.
Under New Rules
For the first time in Harrisburg, ac
cording to new rules, the events to-dav
permitted the little fellows to get
something. Each event had five point
winners. Another new feature was
the passing of the baton in the relay
races. This keeps the runners on the
mark until the baton was passed.
Prizes were awarded as soon as the
official scorer announced the final re
sults. The distribution was in charge
of Professor W. S. Steel, principal of
Harrisburg Central High School,
and Dr. Charles B. Fager, Jr., prin
cipal of the Technical school. Pre
vious to the starting of the meet the.
following announcements were made
to the big crowd:
"A cup has been presented by Dieges
& Clust and will be awarded the high
school scoring the second highest num
ber of points In this meet.
"A new and valuable trophy will be
offered for the 1915 meet.
"Firsts count five points: seconds,
four points; thirds, three points'
fourths, two points; fifths, one point'
in final heats, and firsts, seconds and
thirds are good for gold, silver ana
