Snaps Emanuel Pitches Good
Game, Despite Many
The Galahad team, runners up in
the Allison Hill Baseball League,
Journeyed to Dillsburg last evening
and took the strong Dillsburg A. C.
into camp in a slugging match with
a score of 9 to 5.
Both teams were hitting the ball
hard and splendid fielding kept the
score low. The Dillsburg plajsers
connected safely thirteen times but
only in the second inning were-they
able to hit timely, collecting six ot
the hits in this frame, the balance
being well scattered. The White
Knights infield played airtight ball i
having thirteen assists. Fortna had!
a pretty assist nailing a runner at
third base, he also made a pretty |
throw to first base after catching a
fly ball after a long run the man be
ing called safe on a very close play.
The White Knights also hit thir
teen safe wallops the maority of
which were placed hits and came at
the right time. The Dillsburg in
field was also there and played good.
Smith having six assists to his cred
Galahad started off with a rush j
by scoring in the first inning when!
Klerner was hit by the pitcher and ;
came racing home on Gibblin's two-1
base wallop to right leld. Galahad I
added another in the second when:
Fortna singled, went to second on a|
passed ball, takes third on a fielder's \
choice, Emanuel going out pitcher |
to Ist and scored when the short- j
stop fumbled Foland's hot sizzler. !
The large Dillsburg crowd broke j
into a frenzy when they got four i
runs in their half of the second on j
six hits and two bad throws of Co
baugh's from left field. Fast playing 1
on the part of Galahad infield pre- 1
rented more runs in this inning. Cap-!
tain Starry got the ha ha from the'
when these runs were scored!

Tons of Cold Storage
Meats Are Seized
! Philadelphia, Aug. 21. Seven
, i tons of cold storage chickens and
; fifty-two cold storage calves which
; have been held for more than a year,
| were seized here yesterday by Fed
! erail officials under the Lever food
i act, which provides against hoarding.
I The action is in the nature of a
libel against the goods on the ground
i that meat and chickens were held
j in unreasonable quantities for an un
: reasonable time in order to affect
! prices.
Whether criminal action will be
i brought against Morris & Co., one
j of the "big five" packers, owners of
' the calves, and against William G.
j Howard & Co., of Chicago, in whose
j name the chickens were being held,
I will rest entirely with United States
' District Attorney Kane.
They Also Cost Railroads
Large Sums of Money,
Says One Writer
Noise orders are to be rigidly en
forced on the Philadelphia and Mid
dle divisions of the Pennsylvania
railroad. Sometime ago a notice was
posted calling attention to the un
necessary whistling of engines In the
vicinity of Lemoyne. Recently com
plaints have been made regarding
continual whistling in the yards at
Enola, and in this city. From now
on it will be, "Whistle When Rules
Require It."
On the Middle Division the use of
engine whistles to call in flagmen
at Tyrone was abolished and signal
bells substituted. This will be done
wherever practicable. Whistling
when unnecessary It is said has cost
the railroads considerable money.
Whistling Is Costly
Having read recent articles about
the introduction of telephone signals
on railroads to call in the flagmen, a
subscriber to the Railway Age ex
presses "wonder if we do profit by
experience. He adds that "whistles
and other noises (some unnecessary)
have cost the American railroads un
told millions of dollars in law suits,
often resulting In re-locatlon of ter
minals, elevation of terminals, ele
vation of tracks, electrification, etc..
to abate the noise nuisance. What
thought or attention has been given
to a noiseless locomotive. The chief
offenders are noisy exhausts. Why
not muffle them? A noisy, shrill
whistle, made of cast iron without
musical tone, a harsh metallic clang
ing din called a bell and noisy, open
pop valves! For years efforts were
made to secure a tuneful bell and
whistle and to produce muffled safety
valve, and considerable success was
attained, as indicated by the large
number In service.
Xoise Producers
"This progress was cast to the
winds a few years ago by the intro
duction of so-called high lift or In
creased efficiency safety valves, that
open with the roar of a 13-inch gun.
Likewise the composition tuneful
bell and chime whistle have had to
give place to cast iron and pressed
steel. Evidently our daddies made a
mistake in giving too much consider
ation to the sensitive ear and slum
bering public, for the muffled safety
valve has now gone into the discard
and evidently was not considered a
necessity on the United States Rail
road Administration standard locomo
To Class Dispatchers as
Railroad Officials
Reports that train dispatchers are
to be classed as officers by the rail
roads and treated as such, because
of their arduous duties, appear to be
correct, inasmuch as the Northwest
region, railroad administration, has
received a new set of rules. Train
dispatchers are to receive the same
treatment as other division officers
in the matter of loss of time through
sickness and in exemption from dis
cipline in the way of suspension or
marking of their records. And they
are to have the privilege of resign
ing, rtuher thaai being discharged.
Furthermore, a dispatcher, if
charged with offenses that might
mean dismissal from the service, is
to have the privilege of a hearing
before an officer than his immedi
ate superior. Two weeks vacation a
year and one day off once a week
are to be accorded them.
Railroad Notes
Several firemen who had been on
the extra engineer list will shortly
be given runs on the Middle division.
About fifty per cent, of the firemen
furloughed in this city have been re
turned to yard duty on the Pennsy.
F. W. Smitih, Commissioner in
the Freight Department of the Fed
eral Railroad Administration is in
Harrisburg to-day telling Pennsy
and Reading men how to handle
freight and urging shippers to be
more careful in packing and in mak
ing shipments not properly marked.
The four transportation brother
hoods and other labor crafts in Ty
rone have arranged to have an old
fashioned gathering at Stevens Park,
Tyrone, Labor Day.
The West Virginia Governor, John
J. Cornwell, has sent letters to the
Governors of other States calling
attention to the loss of revenues
from taxation which would fall on
the States if the Plumb plan of rail
road operation should be adopted.
He estimates that Federal owner
ship, to West Virginia, would mean
a loss of $3,000,000 In taxes yearly.
Shoe Workers Paid $l2O

Boston, Aug. 21. —Inquiry into
the high cost of shoes by the coun

fied that many made S6O a week,
while the average was about S4O!

Federal Judge Upholds
Wartime Prohibition
New York, Aug. 21. Holding
that the war emergency still exists,
Federal Judge Augustus N. Hand,
in an opinion handed down yester-"
day, refused to grant a temporary
order sought by Scatena, Lawson
and Perelli, owners of vineyards in
California with a place of business
In this city, fo restrain Federal au
thorities here from enforcing pro
visions of the wartime prohibition
At the recent convention of the
editors of the California papers a
delegate told about the first editor
he worked under.
"Right or wrong, he was always
right. I recall on one occasion where
the paper announced the death of Wil
liam R. Jones, who, it turned out, was
not dead. Accordingly next day the
paper printed the following note:
'Yesterday we were the first news
paper to publish the death of Wil
liam R. Jones. To-day we are the
first to deny the report. The Morning
Star is always in the lead." "—Pitts

Packers Insist Competition
Exists in Their Trade
Washington, Aug. 21.—Independent
packers appearing before the Senate
Agriculture Committee yesterday
challenged most of the statements of
the Federal Trade Commission on
'which proposals for straight regu
lation of the five dominant concerns
in the industry are baaed.
The independent representatives
insisted that they meeting and
furnishing lively competition at both
ends of the industry—in the purchase
of livestock for their plants, and in
the sale of meats to the retailer—
and expressed the conclusion that the
law of supply and demand would
serve sufficiently to protect the con
sumer. Their view was supplemented
by that of a retail butcher, and given
minor support in the appearance of
a vegetable cannery representative
and the head of a milk condensing
business, to object to licensing pro
visions of the Kenyon bills which
they felt would apply to their busi
ness if not changed.
