ROOSEVELT SITS UE
IS TRYING TO KEEP
In AU Seriousness He Declares That
He Needs His Spare Time
For Other Purposes
By Associated Press
Oyster Bay, N. Y„ May 28.—"I'm
trying to keep out of politics as much
as possible Just now," said Colonel
Roosevelt to-day. He made the re
mark In all seriousness, notwithstand
ing the fact that ever since his return
from South America he has been see
ing his political associates at the rate
of half a dozen a day.
The colonel made this statement in
response to a question about the or
ganization work of the Progressive
party during the last year and his
opinion regarding proposals for its
amalgamation with the Republican
party. He declined to express any
views upon these subjects.
Just at present. Colonel Roosevelt
aald. he was busy with preparation of
t> new book. That would take up his
spare time until after his return from
Spain, which will be on July 4. After
that, he said, he would give more time
to politics, although he hoped that for
six weeks he would not be obliged to
give a great deal of time to party
"I'd like to get acquainted with my
family," he explained, but he shook
his head doubtfully as he said it.
Another political conference was to
be> held to-day. Colonel Roosevelt ex
pected to see ex-Senator Albert J. Bev
eridge, Indiana Progressive leader;
Theodore Douglas Robinson. New York
Progressive state chairman, and Regis
Post, former governor of Porto Rico.

The lightship, which was due here
yesterday, is believed to have struck a'
rock while feeling her way through the j
thick fog that has enshrouded the coast
for several days.
The wreckage was sighted and the j
bodies picked up by the steamer Duf- I
ferin, which reported that life belts i
marked "Halifax No. 10," were strapped j
about each of the victims.
I'pon receipt of the news of the I
wreck the Government marine |
agency here made preparations to
send out steamers in search of other
bodies. All of the victims are believed
to be Scotchmen, who were engaged by
the builders to navigate the vessel

from St. John's, N. I"., where she had
stopped for coal.

For years the dust has been one of
the greatest nuisances along the Derry
street line, and as the traffic is heavy,
due to the park travel, people living
in the village of Paxtang have real
estate in the air most of the time.
This year the dust nuisance has start

it is worse.
To-daj a petition signed by every
resident of Paxtang and a number in
the vicinity was presented to Mr. Mus
ser, asking that the street be sprinkled
or oiled. It was represented by the
committee that the dust was some
thing frightful and Mr. Musser sug
gested that the highway be scraped
and offered to attend to oiling along
the right of way, which includes tracks
and two feet 011 each side of rails, if
the residents would do their share.
Last summer residents of Derry

STATE AFTER THE
Public Service Commission Paving
the Way For the Abolition
The Public Service Commission at
its session this week had under con
sideration the abolition of an unusual
number of grade crossings in various
parts of the State, and the expecta
tion is that by the end of the year
there will be a marked reduction in
the huniber of these death-traps.
There are over 10,000 In the State.
Yesterday the contract was consid
ered between the city of Philadelphia
and the following railroads:
Philadelphia. Baltimore and Wash
ington; Pennsylvania; Baltimore and
Ohio, and Philadelphia Belt Line.
Tills contract provides for the aboli
tion of about forty grade crossings by
the construction of an elevated struc
ture over certain streets, the abandon
ment of certain tracks and the con
struction of new tracks in new loca
tions without grade crossings.
Commissioners Pennypaeker and
Johnson will make a personal inspec
(ion of this situation on the morning
of June 1, and in the afternoon will
hold a hearing in the matter of the
petition for the abolition of a grade
crossing on the Philadelphia and
Reading at Fern Rock Station.
The contract lias been approved for
the construction of the Wilkes-Barre
Connecting Railroad, which involves
nineteen crossings of highways above
or below grade, which will result in
the deflecting of much of the freight
traffic now routed through the center
of the city of Wilkes-Barre to a new
route over the connecting railroad
around the city.
