KiallHflßSßnl the workman in
dividually and does not go into the
funds of the contractor, that the
workman is an employe in fact of
the concern, has been rendered by
the State Compensation Board in
the claim of Johnston vs. the Pitts
burgh Plate Glass Company, Pitts
burgh. In this case, a man identi
fied with the contracting firm was
engaged by' the superintendent of
the glass company plant to oversee
some work and was hurt. It was
claimed by the company that he was
hiv independent contractor t and by
the claimant that he was an employe
of the company for the time being.
The Board has affirmed an award of
compensation. In the opinion, the
Board upholds the practice of mak
ing a "suspensary award based on
nominal liability" so that the award
can be made final when the claim
ant secures other work and his earn
ing capacity can be tested.
The Board has aflirmed an award
of compensation in Sasek vs. Royal
Order of Lions, in which the hus
band of the claimant, steward of
the clubhouse, was killed by the
accidental discharge of his revolver
which he had handed to a man in
the room to look at. It was claimed
that he was in the act of closing up
the place and that by handing the
revolver to a member he went out
side of the scope of his employment.
The Board says this is "too narrow
an interpretation" and that the
widow is entitled to compensation.
The Board also awards compensa
tion in Gamble vs. Bergdoll Brewing

Want New Fee Limit—Kfforta to
change the provision for the half!
license fee for motor vehicles in the
Dithrich bill now pending in the
House of Representatives, so that
the time limit shall be August 1 .
instead of September 1, will be made'
during the coming week. Consider- i
able opposition to the late date has!
been heard. Truck owners have also
asked for a number of changes in|
the bill, including an Increase of the j
speed limit from eight to ten miles i
for the heavier trucks and from i
twelve to fifteen for the lighter,
class. The truck people have also
objected to the licenses according to
weight, contending that it would be
difficult to establish it, as many 1
trucks are sold on special specifica- i
tions. The suggestion has been made
that the license be on chassis ;
weights. The number of trucks reg- |
istered in the last three months is
the greatest known in Pennsylvania.
More Borers Found—State Zoolo- |
gist J. G. Sanders, who has been \
directing the hunt for the corn j
borer in Pennsylvania in conjunc
tion with Federal authorities, who I
are also co-operating with this State j
and State College in fighting thei
potato wart in the anthracite field,
says that the corn pest has not been |
discovered in this State in any quan-|
tity to cause alarm. There have i
been some scares, but the insects'
found were not the corn borer, but.
cousins with bad habits, which will
bear watching. The State authori
ties are watching the State lines and |
the hunt in the agricultural counties)
has been conducted separately. One
borer found in Chester county is |
called the cat tail, while another
discovered in corn stalks in Berks
is not identified, except that it is
not the corn borer Uncle Sam has
warned about. In the course of the
hunt, a clover weevil of destructive,
tendencies was found in importa- j
tions into Pennsylvania.

Six-cent Fares Are
Upheld in Two Cities | j
The Public Service Commission
has issued orders allowing the Ma
honing and Shenango Railway and
Light Company, operating in Lawr-1
( nee and other counties and in Ohio,
and the West Chester S'.reet Rail
way Company, operating in Chester
■ ounty, to charge six-cent fares
until May 1, 1920. The accompany
ing opinions, written by Commis
jiioner James Alcorn, dismiss com
plaints filed by the city of New
Castle against the former company
and the city of Coatesville against
the West Chester company. A few
I days ago fho Commission authorized
jthe Schuykill Railway, operating in
Schuylkill county anthracite districts,
to charge an eight-cent fare, hold
ing that conditions justified it for a'
certain period. The opinions in tlieSe I
latest trolley eases are along the
same line. In addition the com
plaint of the city of Coatesville tlfat
the six-cent fare violated a franchise
ordinance is dismissed because the
Commission holds that it does not
prevent the State body from fixing
a rate of fare, while the complaint
as to service is dropped because the
industrial conditions and eight-hour
day ha\e changed the situation 1
After a discussion of the financial
affairs of the company, the decision
says that under present conditions
six cents is not too high and is
needed to meet increased expenses
of operation. It is suggested that by
May of next year, conditions may
have become normal and the five
cent fare may be restored.
Much the same line is followed in
the New Castle decision, except that
the company is told that it is its
duty to furnish good service and to
"kep the cars and road bed in nro
per condition." It is held that under I
normal conditions five cents is suffi
l!!l t ,a fare , and £ hat the
should restore the old rate when
conditions become normal.

best that sto be had for the money—ln Harrisburg this "Live Store" has been the center of attraction to clothing
buyers because we operate differently than most stores—We believe the customer has some rights and we alwavs
give them the benefit of the doubt—Doutrichs sell Dependable Merchandise at all times.
