More Passengers Travel as
Freight Business De
Passenger traffic on the Phila
delphia and Middle Divisions of the
Pennsylvania Railroad continues at
its former hish figure and is in many
cases is even heavier, in sharp con
trast to the marked dtminuition In
freight traffic which has slumped to
half the vplume of several months
Station agents on both divisions
are kept busy and most of the
trains are well-filled. Passenger
traffic is much heavier now than it
was at the same period last year, as
reflected in the receipts. At the
Altoona station the receipts were
$.23,000 larger during the last Janu
ary than they were in the same
month a year ago, and if traffic con
tinues as during the first half of
February this month will show an
increase of at least $15,000 as com
pared with February of last year.
Railroad men attribute the heavy
passenger traffic to the fact that peo
ple have been prosperous during the
past year, everybody has money and
many who deferred traveling during
the war are now taking their con
templated trips. There is likewise
■much soldier traffic to and fro,
every train having on board more or
less men on their way to their homes
or going from one camp to another.
Four Brakemen Arrested
For Thefts From Cars
M. D. Woleslagle, freibht con
ductor, R. A. Parmer and George
Gates, brakemen, all of Altoona, and
John W. Robinson, alias Frank
Smith, brakeman, residence un
known, were held in SSOO bail for
court by Alderman J. C. Gorsueh of
Altoona yesterday afternoon on the
charge of breaking and entering, lar
ceny and receiving stolen goods.
The arrests were made by Pennsy
officers, who charged the quartet
with robbing a box car on their own
train while being halted at Gallitzin
on December 22, 1918. A number of
pairs of shoes and clothing, con
signed to a Pittsburgh firm was
consigned to eftaoinunetaoinunetao
taken. The loot was valued at $250.
Up until yesterday there were 357
suspensions in the four shop de
partments in the South Altoona and
Juniata, not including clerical forces,
according to motive power officials.
Whether there will be further re
ductions depends entirely upon in
dustrial conditions, the volume of
traffic and the necessity for further
economies. Xo additional orders
have been issued and officials hope
that there will be no further oc
casion for' thinning out the em
Italiaans Delaying Frontier
Solution Until King Speaks
Parts, Feb. 15.—The proposed .ar
bitration of the Italian Jugo Slav
frontier question is for the moment
in abeyance. The Italian premier,
Vittorio Orlando, has seen Presi
dent Wilson and informed him that
after consulting with his colleagues
of the delegation, they had agreed
that it would be Impossible to take
a decision on the arbitration pro
posal which the Jugo Slavs present
ed to the peace conference asking
President Wilson to be arbiter
without first consulting the king and
the cabinet, and, if ncceesarv, the
President Wilson took the oppor
tunity to explain that he was not
the originator of the proposal,
which was presented by M. Trum
bitch during a conversation which
he had with him last week, and he
had simply mentioned it to Premier
Orlando in a conversation which
followed immediately after. The
President added that he would pre
fer not to be loaded with the re
sponsibility to arbitrate, but was
willing to act as a friendlv inter
mediary In an effort to reach a set
tlement satisfactory to both sides.
Game Authorities Call Upon
County Officials to See That
Licenses Are Taken
missioners of the

agriculture. Under recent decisions
It is held here that enforcement is
mandatory and since fair warning
has been given that licenses must be
[taken-out again the statb authorities
t wiU insist that county officers require
constables to kill unlicensed dogs.
Hundreds of dogs were killed last
years, notably in the sheep-raising
sections and by-sportsmen who found
the dogs interfering with game. In
some central counties dogs which had
almost ruined hunting prospects were
hunted and in some cases did not have
any owners.
A recent decision in a northen
county that dogs without collars bear
ing liccpse tags, even if they have
been regularly licensed, may be shot
while running at large and doing
damage on farms is expected to make
people careful.
In some of the southern counties
constables have started out to shoot
unlicensed dogs.

district attorneys for additional sta
tolns ran bver thirty. The police de
partment will establish the stations as
soon as possible, all arrangements
having been made with the troop cap

though a number of new dwellings
have befen erected in York Haven
during the past year, and with the
prospects of the building of several

But Only a Few Changes Will
Be Authorized By the Legis
lature This Year
Although only two or three bills
have appeared in the Legislature for
changes in the game code which have,
been given serious attention numer
ous suggestions for legislatoin affect
ing wild life have appeared and some
are exciting a good bit of discussion.
One of them is a demand, which
comes from a couple of sections in
the northern part of the state for
payment of damages for destructoin
of cattle and other property damages
by bears. The state now remunerates
owners of farms and orchards where
it is clearly established that deer
have caused damage, although the
policy in recent years has been to dis
courage such claims and to pay only
when indisputable evidence Is found
after official investigation. It is
doubtful whether the deer damage
provision will be made to cover
bears, although some complaints
whicff seem well founded have come
in from time to time.
Bills will soon appear to make the
blackbird season from August 1 to
November SO and to take the protec
toin off red squirrels. No account has
been taken recently of the red squir
rels killed by hunters, but the ani
mals have become a nuisance to farm
ers and fruit growers.
The game code amendments in hand
which have attracted most attention
are from Senattor T. L Eyre and ox
tend the raccoon season until the
last of February and change the bag
limits on grouse and a few other
birds. These changes have been back
ed by many sportsmen. especially
those who have been studying the sit
uation and who believe that reduc
tcins are imperative now. The south
ern county people have been asking
for the extension of the 'coon season.
Thus far there has been little heard
of the usual differences over season
limits, between the northern and
southern tiers.
The bill is about ready to be pre
sented giving the State Oame Com
mlssc-in authority to spend not over
$50,000 a year for purchase of land
for game preserves with power to
make reservations as to coal and oth
er under surface rights. This will en
able creation of a number of pre
serves. There are now two auxilllary
preserves. No. 1 in Clarion and No. 2
in \\ yoming and more would be cre
ated if arrangements could be made.
As they are not being offered the
purchase of land by the state is con
sidered the next best plan.

Need of Better Physical Edu
cation Demonstrated by
Health Insurance Probe
The fact that forty-six per cent
of the manhood of Pennsylvania be
tween the ages of twenty-one and
thirty-one summoned under the
draft had to be rejected because of
physical defects is brought out by
the report of the Pennsylvania State
Health Insurance Commission,
which has asked to be continued
for a general study of the situation.
The Commission study covers con
ditions all over, the State and was
made under authority of an act of
1917, the members beinjf Senators
E. E. Beidlemftn, now Lieutenant
governor, Charles W. Sones and
James B. Weaver and Representa
tives William T. Ramsey, Isadore
Stern and John M. Flynn and Wil
liam Flinn, Dr. John B. McAlister
and William Draper Lewis.
The commission submits numer
ous tables, one showing that the
State has a high death rate; another
that infant mortality in Philadel
phia for 1917 was higher than for
the same period in New York and
other large cities and worse than
the average of the registration
areas which was 101 per 1,000 and
industrial accidents.
Taking 1916 the commission finds
that the 255,616 industrial accidents
in Pennsylvania caused loss of 3,-
025,371 working days and that sick
ness caused loss of over 16,000,000
days. It is estimated that the aver
age loss in that year was six days
for each person working. Refer
ence is made to the influenza out
break as having caused terrible
losses, anthracite coal production
being cited. It is claimed that the
State does not average over five hos
pital beds for each 1,000 population
and that the supply of medical men
is not sufficient.
The comment is made that the
deaths from occupational diseases
are increasing, more than seventy
nine per cent, of the workers who
died in 1916 having succumbed to
diseases connected with their em
ployment, while it is claimed that
defects in many school children are
The surveys made were in Phila
delphia, Pittsburgh and other places
and it is held that they should be
made state-wide.
Expects Conference
at Princes' Islands
Will Return Troops
Washington, Feb. 15. —Prediction
that the iy-oposed conference at
Princes' Islands between representa
tives of the victorious associated na
tions and the various contending
Russian factions would result in an
agreement for withdrawal from Rus
sia of American and allied troops,
was made in the Senate yesterday by-
Senator Hitchcock, chairman of the
foreign relations committee, during
another spirited debate on the
American policy towards Russia.
Senator Hitchcock said he be
lieved all the foreign expeditions in
Russia would "come out together"
under an agreement with the Rus
sian representatives which would
prevent "butchery" of troops left in
Russia which have been friendly to
the allies.
Discussion of the Russian situa
tion was opened by Senator John
son, of California, Republican, who
asked for immediate action on his
resolution which would put the Sen
ate on record as favoring withdrawal
of the American Russian expedition
as soon as practicable.

Auditor General Snyder Says
Trend 'is Against Rural
'Auditor General Charles A. Sny
der not only intends to ask the leg
islature to enact a new minimum
salary law, but to indicate some
places where he believes the State
of Pennsylvania's educational sys
tem has not advanced with the
needs of the time. Mr. Snyder said
that he would arrange during the
coming,week with legislators to dis
cuss the new minimum salary and
that he thought the time had come
when the school system of the State
should make better provision for
sons of men of moderate means.
"The plan for a new minimum
salary which I shall advocate is for
teachers who have taught three
j years. It should be SSOO for those
j teaching a seven months term and
S6OO for those teaching nine
mouths." said Mr. Snyder. "We
have got to look at this thing on a
business basis, considering the
State's revenue and the situation
that will soon arise in the rural dis
tricts. .
"Now X do not want to engage in
anything sensational, but I do think
that in spite of all that we have
heard our educational system in
Pennsylvania needs a change. To
my mind the common school sys
tem now does not give the son of
a poor man a chance to become a
professional man. Educators have
been showing a trend toward theo
ries, many of which are not work
able. In my opinion there should
be a higher standard of grammar
schools and a boy leaving them
should be fitted to become an in
telligent and skilled artisan or me
"Now, just let me say this: If the
present system is not changed in
ten years there won't be any rural
physicians in Pennsylvania. Peo
ple of moderate means can not af
ford to send their sons to schools
for ten years to fit them to prac
tice and those who do make the out
lay of money and time will turn to
the cities. This is another thing
we must consider."
Rabbi Haas Favors
League of Nations
Rabbi I.ouis J. Haas, at Ohev
Sholom Temple, last evening spoke
on the "Value of the League of
Nations." Rabbi Haas declared that
the league would bring about a
world organization for peace and
democracy that would have been
impossible five years ago. He point
ed out the difference between the
present trend of public opinion and
the forces which formerly worked
for autocracy.
A realization of the league, said
the Rabbi, would spell the end of
persecution and oppression of the
Jews. Rabbi Haas announced that
Dr. Robert Ragnell, pastor of Grace
Methodist Church, would speak in
the synagogue next Friday evening.

By far the most efficient and economical method
is to appoint a Trust Company and know that your

This is an important matter to you and
one on which we would like to advise you.
