town Institution Stays Closed
Schaefferstowu Pa.. Feb. 23.—Pres
ident Horst last night made the state
ment that the Schaefferstowu bauk
would not be reopened for business to
day, as scheduled. The refusal of the
Xatioual Surety Company of New York
to pay over the $15,000 represented
by the bond of the late cashier, Alviu

cause. Mr. Horst frankly admitted he
could not now name the day onSvhich
the institution would be reo'pened.

the Lebanon county jail on a charge
of wilfully aidiug and abetting rue

■was made yesterday bv Hoverter. who
intimated strongly that he would be a

comment on this new development, and
the identity of hoverter's attorney

What Could Be Done with the $2,000,000
Which the Full Crew Laws Arbitrarily
Take From the Railroads
Increased Railroad facilities, better service, greater safety and
convenience, business expansion and the employment of a great
number of men now idle would follow the repeal of the waste
ful Pennsylvania and New Jersey Full Crew Laws.
Facts —Not Theories
$2,000,000 would buy 2000 steel coaches.
It would pay for 80 locomotives.
It would purchase 67,000 tons of rails.
\ . It would return 5 per cent, op $40,000,000.
It would block-signal 1000 miles of track.
It would eliminate 65 grade crossings.
It would pay for 2000 freight cars.
It would build 200 new stations at SIO,OOO.
• It would provide additional freight terminal facilities.
It would buy 2,500,000 railroad ties.
It would pay for 2,000,000 tons of coal.
The iron and steel industry would be stimulated, furnish
ing steel for new cars, rails, bridges, buildings, etc.
Miners and coke oven operatives would get increased
work as industry expanded.
New construction would mean busy times for the Lehigh
region cement plants and their workmen.
Thousands of architects, contractors, building trades
workers, electrical concerns and electricians, skilled
mechanics, carpenters, miners, and day laborers would
so get work.
With these incontestible facts thus clearly set forth, the
twenty-one railroads of Pennsylvania and New Jersey feel it
their duty to place the fate of the Full Crew Laws in the hands
of the people. They are convinced the people prefer that em
ployment be given to thousands for whom there actually is work to
knowing that $2,000,000 a year is being paid in mandatory wages
for extra men for whom there exists no essential service to per
form and whose presence, it has been conclusively shown,
increases rather than decreases—the hazards of railroad
