Crews to Run Under Pool Sys
tem Until Further
WiUi the annulment of passenger
trains on the Pennsylvania railroad
and the Philadelphia and Rending
Railway, and the cutting down of
freight scheduled, numerous changes
in handling crews became necessary.
For some time the Reading freight
crews have been operating under one
pool, and each crew takes its turn
in doing service.
This means a big cut in some
checks, which will be due about
Christmas time. However, officials
are of the opinion that a settlement
Is not far away, and regular sched
ules will be resumed in the very
near future. Pennsylvania crews
are also working on the "first in,
first out" system.
There will also be extensive
changes in the running of passenger
crews. Annulment of trains will
also necessitate a pooling system for
this branch. It is understood that
for the present there will be no spe
cial running schedule followed.
Crews will be listed and called in j
To Continue Indefinitely
, Whether the strike ends to-day or
not. the regulations are expected to
remain in operation for at least a
week. No official forecast of the
consequences of a settlement in In
dianapolis could be had at the offices
of the railroad administration here.
R. O. Fischer, assistant to Mr.
Baldwin, said restrictions would re
main for a time, no matter what
happened in Indianapots.
"Whatever is done." he explained,
"will be on orders from Washington.
I do not believe, however the re
strictions on the railroad* and in
dustry at large will be lifted for
some time after the strike is finally
"The time at which the restric
tions will be lifted will depend upon
the speed with which the miners re
turn to work. It may take several
days to get all the men back in the
mines. That would delay bringing
production up to normal. And until
near normal is reached we will be
unable to waive the permits under
which the coal is now distributed.
I'ntil that time comes the restric
tions will be kept in force. !

I-* ' ars ago tne department started to
I in,er ?st people in planting of trees as
j a conservation measure and offered
free trees suited to safeguarding of
, water supply. i n 1915 only one cotn-
VVW asked for trees and less than
; 1,200 were planted and this year
I '"ore than 500,000 trees were set out
water companies.
Coal companies have taken an ac
tive part in reforestation projects,
but the water companies have done
more in that line than any other.
Many of them have bought and
planted trees aside from what aid
lias been extended by the State. One
company in the Scranton district has
planted 800.000 trees in nine years,
180,000 being its record for this
year alone, while one Luzerne county
company has planted 135,000.
Five members of the Public Serv
ice Commission have been assigned
to hold hearings in Pittsburgh this
week owing to the unusual number of
cases. Chairman Ainey, Commis
sioners Rilling, Shelby, Clemena and
Benn will hold sittings. The Com
mission is also holding hearings in I
Harrisburg and Lebanon to-day.
The State Board of Pardons enleu- I
dar for the meeting on December 17 j
will be one of the largest for the l
last month of the year in a long '
time. Several of the cases have been i
continued from previous months, In- i
eluding one first degree case.
The State Agricultural Department
to-day issued a summary of reports
on farms of the State showing that
164.229 are operated by owners and
51,105 by tenants. Twenty years ago '
there were 162,279 farms operated !
by owners and 58,266 by tenants,
3,703 being in the hands of man
agers. The figures show Lancaster
with over 10,000 farms, of which
6,600 are operated by owners. In
Cumberland 1,600 farms are con
ducted by owners and 1,300 by ten
ants, while in Crawford over 6,000
are run by owners and less than 1,000 I
by tenants. Philadelphia shows 306 j
owners operating farms and 46S ten- I
More telephone companies have'
filed notices of increases of rates i
with the Public Service Commission. I
In the number are Nlttany, Centre ]
county: Burton, Butler county, and j
Bald Eagle, Centre county. Other;
increases filed include Palmer Water '
Company, Palmerton; Spring Brook j
Water Company, Luzerne county;
Dillsburg Water Company, York '
county; Erie Lighting Company,
Erie and vicinity; Sergeant Gas
Company, Elk county, and the
Eaglesmere Light Company, operat
ing in Sullivan county.
Steps to secure for the State all
of the inheritance taxes to whtch it
is entitled by the code of 1919 front
the estate of Henry C. Frick, of
Pittsburgh, were taken to-day by
Auditor General Charles A. Snyder
in conference with Register of Wills
William Conner, of Allegheny county.
The State will receive several mil
lions in taxes, there being a 2 per
cent direct and 5 per cent collateral
inheritance faxes. There is no doubt
in the minds of the officials here
that the State will get the money,
notwithstanding claims that may be
made in New York, as Mr. Frick" has
long been considered a resident of
Pittsburgh. The calculations made
here are that the Federal Govern
ment will receive about 22 per cent
of the whole estate in taxes.
Mortimer F. Elliott, of Wellsboro. |
one of the survivors of the consti
tutional convention of 1873, has sent j
a letter to the Attorney General re- !
gretting inability to attend the meet- /
ings of the Commission.
State tax cases will come up in tlie
Dauphin county court to-morrow.
The Public Service Commission 1
adjourned its executive session last i
night, acting upon a number of j
minor cases.
Representative Hugh A. Dawson, j
of Scranton, was among visitors here
Complaint lias boon filed with the
Public Service Commission against
the proposed changes of zones by the
Ephrata and Lebanon Traction Com
pany in parts*of Lancaster county
by M. B. Hacker, of Lincoln. He
contends that the company has
divided the village of Lincoln into
halves by shortening zones and re
ducing fares, the effect being that
half the people of the town can ride
to EphraOa for one fare and the other
must pay two.
Many bidders arc expected next
week when the State opens the last
bids for this year. Numerous sets
of plans are being requested.
The State Highway Department
during the last few days has freed
two toll roads at a cost to the Com
monwealth of $8,400. One of these
is the Hereford Turnpike in 3erk3
county, extending from Clayton to
Hereford, a distance of two and one
half miles. The cost of this piece of
road was SI,BOO, in which the State
Highway Department and Berks
County Commissioners joined in the
50-50 plan. The other was that be
tween Hilltown and Sellersville in
Bucks county, a distance of three
miles. It was acquired at a cost of
$15,000, half of which was paid by
the State and half by the county
