The clianecs are that the Public
Service Commission will undertake
some steps in a short time to launch
a grade crossing elimination cam
paign. The statements in regard
to the plan for uniform signs at

a demand for getting rid of the cross
ings. The grade crossing subject
was studied for two years and when
the war came along it was stopped.
A few days ago Commissioners Benn
and Clement issued a statement in
which the Commission's efforts to
secure safety devices was outlined.
Since that time editorials in Phila

Wiilße the Chief
Capitol Hill was talking to-day
about the stand taken by Congress
man J. Hampton Moore In opening
his campaign headquarters yesterday
to the effect that he proposed to be
head of the organization in Philadel
phia. While the Vare candidates did
not attend the opening it is signifi
cant that prominent Vare men were
there and that two Vare candidates
got oft the McLaughlin ticket, while
Congressman W. S. Vare is guest of
the Mayoralty nominee on a water
way journey to-day.
The Philadelphia Preßs says of the
events yesterday: "Congressman
Moore opened his new campaign
headquarters in the Lincoln Building
yesterday with a speech in which he
asserted his position as "titular head
of the Republican party" when elect
ed Mayor; spoke of putting the Re
publican party right "even if a re
organization is necessary," and get
ting "good service in City Hall even
if some people there have to go out,"
while at the same time he gave such
hints of his desire for harmony in the
rank and tile of his party as the one
he gave when he said: "We have no
enemies to punish or friends to serve
until the campaign is over. We shall
Judge solely by the returns on No
vember 4." The new headquarters
opened yesterday with practically the
same staff in charge as conducted the
Moore primary.
Public Service
Shakeup Comments
The Philadelphia North American,
with which James S. Benn, one of the
Public Service Commissioners, was
long connected has this to say about
the coming shake-up in the Commis
sion staff:
"Seven employes of the Public Ser
vce Commission, including William
C. Hartman, of Philadelphia, a fol
lower of Representative John R. K.
Scott, and two other Vare men, have
been slated for removal by a com
mittee on dismissal, of which Com
missioner Samuel M. Clement, Jr., and
James S. Benn, of Philadelphia, and
S. Rilling, of Erio, are members. It
is said that the dismissals are being
made to cut down the operating ex
penses of the department, as the ap
propriation mkde by the recent legis
lature will not allow the continuance
of all the present employes and the
reed of more stenographers has be
come pressing. Among the men men
tioned for dismissal is a prominent
Pittsburgher, who has been with the
commission several years."
The Public Ledger says much the
some thing and the Philadelphia
Press, which often reflects Commis
sioners' views, likewise predicts a

Time to Get New Ones
Ijondou, Oct. 11.—Many girls who
