Trolley Service Held
Up by Illness of Men
Because many of its employes arei
j sick or did not report for work, the i
Harrisburg Railways Company was j
able to run only fifty of the fifty-,
i eight cars on Its lines. The men
on the afternoon shift reported as f
i usual at noon to-day. and no difti- j
culty was experienced this afternoon, j
The lines affected by the shortage |
this morning were the Second street:
line, the Third street line, the Race j
and Vine streets line and the Capitol j
street line. No cars were running i
on the last-named line this morning.
! but traffic was not seriously handi- j
capped because of the Third street
line which takes the same route
going north, and the Sixth street line
took care of the Seventh street
traffic usually carried in Capitol i
I street cars.
Steelton News
j Offers His Resignation, to
Take Effect on New
After serving for a year and a half
us chief of the borough polico force.
Victor R. Grove has ofTered his res
. lgnation, to take effect January 1.
During the time of his office the
police fone was brought to a state
of efficiency unreached at any prior
time, and there Is a general feeling
of regret on the part of officials and
citizens of the borough that his
services cannot be retained. His
resignation gives no cause, and when
interviewed he'seemed rather reluc
tant to make Rn.v statement whut-
I soever. It is generally understood,
i however, that the reason is not an
! entirely financial one.
j The inadequacy of the size of the
• police force, the rejection by the
j borough council of a number of
j good proposals and other matters
i making the position of chief of po
j lice In Steelton a difficult one. are
.supposed to have brought about his
1 determination to resign. Some few
| months ago he asked for an nddi-
I tion to the potlce force of at least
; live men, anil also asked for a police
j pntrol. Both requests were rejected.
IHe has Mso from time to timet
J urged an enlarged and Improved
| police call system. The present sys
tem of call boxes by which the po
i llcemen report at intervals to the
j police station was introduced in
| Steelton by Chief Grove.
During Grove's term of office
seven murders were committed in
( thc borough, and of these five mur-
Iderers were caught, a larger per
centage than during any other
I period.
I Grove was formerly a member of
I the Pennsylvania Railroad police
i force.
Red Cross Roll Call Now

Steelton has made good in the

; McAdoo R. R. Scheme
Only Move to Gain
Control in Election*
' 1 Washington Dec. 2fi. Grave
! danger exists that the railroad ques
■ tion will be made a subject of
, political controversy in which both
j efficiency and operation. Which
1 means service to the public, and
|. sound economic principles may be
! lost sight of.
It will certainly develop into this.
j!if Director Qeneral McAdoo and the
, i administration have their way.
The McAdoo proposal to extend
! government operation for a period of
' five years is purely political.
Should accept the pro
j gram as outlined by the President's
; son-in-law, with the approval of the
i President himself, there hi no doubt
j that the great railroad organization
would be made a political machine
> and the personnel of more than 2,-
000,000 men would be used as far
i as possible to perpetuate Democratic
' control of government, and to pro
-1 mote the personal and political am-
I bitions of the men who dominate the
j Democratic party.

L j The ratification of the prohibition!
5 j amendment to the National ConstiVt
' ' tion is conceded since the result of the|
• November eelctlons for the Lgisln-]
' , lures of the various states has been'
scrutinized. Fifteen states have al
] ready ratified and there are twenty
. two "dry" states which have not yet
' 1 voted on national prohibition. Thes
- j will all undoubtedly ratify, which
1 will make thirty-seven, and thirtv-six
' ! ratifications will write prohibition
81 Into the National Constitution. In
addition, there are five other states
■ which have not yet acted on this ques
; tion which have elected Legislatures
r j pled-ed to ratify.
Whether the Willis-Bryan meetings!
. 1 take the form of a celebration of ratl
, ; flcatlor. accomplished or of the ex
