H Three births occurred at the home 1

hospital inmates was 246, of which ISt
were adult males and 5U adult females.
JCine were children.
Among the inmates are four who are
entirely blind, while five others are nl
most blind. Twelve are epileptic. Of
these six suffer such severe attacks and
of such frequency that it is necessary
to give them constant treatment. One
inmate is entirely helpless from pa
ralysis, while tflre<> others are practical
Jv unable to aid themselves.
Owing to the diptheria quarantine
there has been a cessation of syphiletics
that usually are sent into the hospital
department for treatment, but there are
still twelve who are now receiving

Marshall Will Probably Cast Vote That
Will Decide Whether Administra
tion Bill Lives or Dies at This
Session of Congress
By . t ssoi - irO Press.
Washington, Feh. 4.—Vict' President
Marshall probably will east the vote
j which derides whether the administra
tion ship bill lives or dies at this ses
sion of Congress. It the expCt'tations
j of the leaders are fulfilled, it will be
niie of the few instances in which the
i Vice President of the United States
j has swung tin" balance. Tin' last was
when the late Vice President Sherman
I cast the deciding vote for the Bristow
resolution, which put a constituii ■ 11:11
amendment for direct election of Sen
ators before the people.
Administration i Democrats reformed
their line.- to-day and found they ha I
only 4tl votes against the 4S waiting
to send the bill ba.-k to the l'ommcr' ( e
Committee without instructions. Their
only course was to stave oil' a vote
while Senatoi IS'ewlaiiMS hurries back
from California and Senator Smith, of
South Carolina, can come from the bed
side of his wife. With their votes, the
Democrats figure that, barring surprises,
the eonte will be even on the iloor
mid the \ ice President will be calle I
ion for the deciding vote. The a Iminis
! tration leaders count him with them.
With thi< program before them, to
da\'s proceedings were carried on as
part of tin plan to hold oft a vote until
the arrival of the two absent Senators.
In the course of the debate Senator
lloko Smith saiil: "It is understood
that if the bill now before the Senate
"oes to a vote it will be beaten, ft
j* understood that if amended a major
ity of the Senate will vote fo"l* il."

President Harry A. Boyor, In Address
Tells of Struggle to Produce Twen

I'sing Harrisburg as an example of
tlit> usual method o!' netting revenue
for the school district, Harry A. Boyer,
i res: lent of the Harrisburg School
Board and president of the Directors'
Department of the Pennsylvania State
Kdueational Association told 200 s.liool
dire tors tlii:; afternoon of the struggle
to produce twentieth century instruc
tion from what iie termed a "mediaeval
ta . assessment.
His ;:nnuol address before the de
partment opened this afternoon's ses
sion in the Technical High school audi
torium. A discussion on "What Is the
1 Matter With the Public S.hools?'
opened by C. s. Foos, superintendent

ed by the Kev. K.hvin K. Curtis, pastor
ot the \\ estminster
church, \s-ociated Jud;:e S. I. M.
Mci'arrell. welcomed the delegates to
j this city.
Mr. Bover suggested a relief from
the present situation iii_ his conclusion,
i which follows:
'•The on 1 \ solution to this rather
j complex and annoying dtui.iou is the
of a fa.' and equitable assess
ment, on an honest busine-< principle
—State-wide, if passible, for the more
far reaching; its c::teut, the more satis
factory the i- ii f s. The«e i also need
of a careful revision of the exemptions
that are universal!;.' granted, and cer
tainly :• more practical and effective
way of reaching the non-j ropertv own
er, who enjoys all the privileges of a
public school >yston', in many eases not
payihg a penny towards its mainte
nance, and, at most, only PI per year,
in avoiding the p:;vment of which he
becomes the artful dodger."
There will lw an evening meeting
in the Technical High si hool auditor

principal address. T'ue closing session

of men and women were making theii

During the height of the blaze the
flames were so hot that there was some
alarm lest they would do injury to the
j bridge. Firemen took advantage of the
proximity of the bridge to the burning
building and several streams of water
i were directed from the structure.
Save Cars From First Floor
The blaze started during the noon
hour, when but few persons were in
the garage, but those who were on the
first floor were attracted by the smell
of smoke. By that time the two upper
floors of the building were so filled with
smoke that it was impossible to enter
without a mask.
Jacob Aurabaugh, shop foreman of
the parage, was among those in the
building and he directed the efforts of
two chauffeurs in saving a few cars
on the first floor. Six were rolled to
safety, together with some cases con
taining automobile accessories.
The building was soon surrounded on
all sides by firemen. The aerial ladder
on the All. Vernon truck, which is
equipped with a hose line and a nozzle
wfiich can be operated from the ground,
was run up to the front of the building,
a trolley support wire being cut for
this purpose. The ladder was placed

the stream was turned on flames burst
from the window and the top of the

Many Small Explosions
By the time the firefighters were
; placed and streams >ll, small explosions
were occurring on the second floor,
which was used for cleaning and re
pairing cars most of the cars having
: some gasoline in the tanks. One after
another small explosions occurred,
I sending the burning liquid into the air
jon all sides There seemed to be about,
ten small explosions, each one inereas- |
in;; the volume of the tire, which was
sending toujjups oJ flame from
every window ou the second and third
tloors of the building.
The roof seemed to weaken and the 1
upper floors to wobble and with scarce-i
Iv a warning crack crumble and sank (
into the first Moot of the building.
Bricks were hurled in every direction
and a number of firemen had narrow
I escapes from these missiles. Fire Chief
Kindler was standing at a corner of l
i tho building when the walls started to
i tumble and he had to flee tor safety.
! Flames shot fully 400 I'.vr in the
air and thousands who had crowded the
Mulberry street bridge and the yards
.it the rear of Sylvan Terra.-e homes
'had to get back to keep from being
i scoTehed. The wall to the south crumb
led into a heap and did 110 damage
! the Nuss plant, but the north wall fell
outward a trifle and crushed the root
of the blacksmith shop like an egg
shell. Several wagons were crushed un
: der the roof of the shop.
At the rear of this building was a
! sprinkler w:igon belonging to the City
i Highway Department. The roof imme-
I diately over the sprinkler did not go
down and it is believed that this vehicle
was saved.
Under oont,rol at '1 O'clock
The falling of the building made the
work of the firemen 'comparatively
easy thereafter and from the surround
ing roofs and the bridge they could
(day streams into the ruins, although
danger of explosions remained. At 2
o'clock the flames were under control
of the district apparatus and one com
pany after another, which had been
called by telephone or the general
alarm, were sent home.
Firemen then dragged away enough
wreckage from the southwest corner of
the building to permit the entrance of
streams into the first floor in an effort
to stop any flames that might reach a
big gasoline tank buried under the
