TO DISCUSS STEEI/TON TAXES j
County Seeks More Light on Bequest
For Exonerations For Steel Co.
Before the I ounty Commissioners i
act finally on the application to ex- j
onerate the Pennsylvania Steel Com
pany from paying taxes on 50 or more
Steelton houses, which have been razed
in a plan to make plant additions and
improvements, it is likely a conference j
will be held between the county heads
and J. V. W. Heynders, superintendent
of the steel plant. '
The assessed valuation of the prop- j
erties in question is something like j
$70,000. Taxes on that amount mean
material income to both the countv j
and the borough of Steelton, so that
exonerations from payments will mean :
losses to both districts. Tlie commis
sioners will, it is believed, further con

How the blase started is a mystery,
but borough officials are of the opinion
that it was of incendiary origin. It was
reported along Mohn street this morn

in the rear of the houses Shortly be

Pour dwellings, 384. 386, 390 and
392 Mohn street, including two stores,
were completely gutted, the forty-three
occupants fleeing in their'night clothes,
all escaping without accident excepting
Henry Arnt, an old man, who was
burned to a crisp.
The escape from the doomed dwell
ings by the sleepers, who were awaken
ed from thoir slumbers by a number of
foreigners shooting guns and revolvers
to sjirea I the arlarm, was spectacular.
By t'lie time they were thoroughly
aroused it was impossible to leave tfoe
house by descending the steps, so the
tenants worked their way to t'he front
of the building aud climbed out on the
porcfa roofs, from which most of them
jumped about twelve feet to the side
walk, while a few slid down a pole
which had been secured and restod
against the por.h roof.
Boys Fail in Attempt to Rescue
Vigorous efforts were made by
Stephen Unger 15 years old, grandson
of Henry Arnt, and a boy companion.
Joseph Sehram, 10 years," to save the
lite of Arnt. These two boys slept in
the same room with the grandfather.
Unger was the first of the trio to get
awake. He called Schram and the two
jumped out of bed and tried to dress.

Tw'ice in thirty-fdur hours —in day

a ghostly hand has smashed the glass
from in the front of the box, opened

dashing fire engines, yet the results
have been material.
At 11 o'clock Sunday morning and
at 8.20 o'clock last evening firemen
have responded to the ghostly calls
from that fire alarm box. Twice the
firemen have seen nothing but small
boys and, of course, they saw nobody
"pull" the box.
Policemen have redoubled their ef
