* Henning, W. Va.—"The early part
•of last winter I was caught under a
Stalling tree and as a result suffered
•►from concussion of the brain. My
fsufferings were so intense that at
Ctimes I almost went mad. My nerv
r*ous system was so completely shat

tal and physical wreck.

"relief. I had* about given up hope
[when one of the lumbermen from the

that I try DR. CHASE'S BLOOD

felt some relief and thus con
tinued the use of these tablets.

land was utilized when the yard was
.opened here, but to-day the new
yard takes In about 500 acres, which
gives llie company a yard five miles
long and 728 let .wide, with space
for fity-six tracks.

Steelton News J
Police Keep Three Men Picked
Up Yesterday and Take
Another Today
I Of the fifteen negroes picked up
1 Wednesday by state police In cora
! pany with the local police and Chief
! Metaheiser of the steel force, three
| are being held for further ir.vestlga-
Ition. In addition to then-. Officer
Wynn this morning brought to the
station a negro nantcd Sam Watson
on suspicion of being implicated in
the shooting of F. W. Lerch,- of
Highspire, Tuesday evening. The
first three weer taken front Locust
grove, and hail from various parts
of the South. In the hut of one of
thent a revolver was found after he
had made the assertion that he had
no gun. In the questioning thus far
none of the three have been able to
give satisfactory answers to their
whereabouts at tlio time of the
shooting, although they did try to
show wheA they were after 9
o'clock. The shooting took place
shortly after seven.
Sam Watson, the negro taken this
morning has a "bad sear on his left
eheekvone as though he were hit a
glancing blow with some instrument
not unlike a hammer. It is recalled
that Lereh said he struck at one of
them with "a hammer. Watson will
be held for investigation.
The police have been handicapped
in tljeir search for the guilty parties
by the lac kof clues. It is known that
several negroes were on the trolley
car and left it at Highspire just a
short time before the shooting.
Others in Highspire saw three ne
groes go in the direction of Board's
barbershop, and just a few minutes
! before the shooting two negroes
came to the hwrbersliip of Beard and
I asked the way to the wholesale
I liquor store. Beard himself is said to
have told them the way, but thus
far Beard has refused to come to the
| Steelton lockup to make any attempt
Ito identify the men now held, al
though. he has been requested to do
so several times by Chief Long
The state police have Veen work
ing steadily on the case and appear
to be confident of catching the guilty

the woods at the west side of the
road and disappeared.

Attorney General Scliaffer
Presents Petition on
Behalf of Slate
The Daupliin county court yester
day on petition of Attorney General
Sehaffer issued a preliminary in
junction restraining the Hell Tele
phone .Company, of Pennsylvania,
from charging the increased tele
phone rates ordered by the Federal
authorities. The hearing was fixed
for next Monday afternoon at 2
* The petition of the state authori
ties, which was presented by the
Attorney General in person and ac
companied by nflldavits from Public
Service Commissioners Ainey, Mc-
Clure, Brecht, Alcorn and others,
averred that the Hell company hud
not complied with the provisions
of the Public Service Company law
which requires tiling of rates with
the commission and declared that
the fixing of rates is a stute matter
entirely. Mr. Schpffer appeared as
general counsel of the commission,
Governor Sproul having requested
him to act in the matter.
Both Judges Kunkel and McCar
rell were on the bench and just be
fore Mr. Sehaffer presented the peti
tion the new Attorney General and
First Deputy Attorney General Rob
ert S. Gawthrop and Deputy Attor
neys General Emerson Collins, B. J.
Myers and William L. Swoops were
formally admitted to the Dauphin
county bar on motion of Lieutenant
Governor Beidleman. Deputy Har
gest and Counsel Berne H. Evans,
of the Public Service Commission,
who are members of the Dauphin
bar, were also present.
The petition presented by Mr.
Sehaffer required almost fifteen
minutes to read. It set forth that
the company is a Pennsylvania cor
poration, organized and existing un
der Pennsylvania laws; that it has
been ordered to and, has tiled rates
with the commission, among them
a schedule effective June 21, 1917,
which can not be changed or discon
tinued by the company within three
years without approval of the com
mission. It is then, set forth what
the company has done in the mat
ter of the new rates, complained of
by the state, which it is stated be
came effective January 21.
Declared to lie in Excess
The Federal rates are declared in
•excess of what the Bell was au
thorized to chttrge by the state and
the petition avers that the com
pany in charging the rates complain
ed of is acting in violation of orders
of the commission and that the
charges are illegal.
"Neither the defendant, nor the
postmaster general, acting through
the officers and directors of the de
fendant, is authorized by law to
change the tolls and charges deter
mined by said commission, except
with approval of the commission."
says the prayer, which declares that
"the attempt to change said tolls
and charges above set forth is an
impairment of the lawful police
regulations of this state, as ex
pressed in the Public Service Com
pany law."
In the prayer it is asked that the
company be enjoined
from violating orders of the com
mission and from charging or col
lecting th'e new rates until the com
pany applies to the commission for
In answer to some questions from
the bench Mr. Sehaffer said the po
lice. powers of the state were never
delegated to the United States gov
ernment by any action in connection
with the telephone systems and' are
in any event expressly reserved to
the state. He said that he did not
know where the Federal authorities
got the right to increase the rates
in this state and that the Bell was
a Pennsylvania corporation.
Judge MeCarrell asked if the gov
ernment had not taken over the prop
erty to which the Attorney General
replied that it had not, but was su
pervising and controlling it in the
functions of managing director.
"We will fix next Monday, Febru
ary 3. at 2 o'clock as the time for
the hearing." said Judge Kunkel
The effect of the action is to re
strai rfthe Bell from charging the
new rates until the injunction pro
ceedings is ended. The injunction
may be either made permanent or
