Remraer Gives Warning Against Men
Who Sell Way Below Market Prices
R. Remmer, whose general store, at'
1220 North Cameron street, was robbed
on February 23 and again on March 2,
of goods valued by him at $135, said
to-day that ho believes tho three mou
arrested in connection with these rob
beries and the burglary committed at
the home of Joseph Barath, 1007 Cum
berland street, on March 2, are huck
sters who had trieij, previous to the
robberies, to sell goods to him.
Mr. Remmer said that he believes
the men accused of having robbed him
hal made a practice of following the
business of hucksters in tie 'lay time
during which they made mental obser
vations w:th regard to places that it
might be easy to break into aty night.
He said he believes the public ought to
bo on tho look out for hucksters who
sell produce at prices way below tho
market figures.
Mr. Remmer said the men who
robbed his store on the first occasion
broke the panel out of a door to gain
admittance and on the second occasion
broke in a window and a door. They
forced the window open despite the fact
there was a heavy bar across it in the
inside. Mr. Remmer says that goods of
his, valued at about SIOO, still are mass

seats between the acts.—Richmond

Shaaber Bill Provides Prison Penalty
For Those Who Violate It
If the bill introduced by Represen
tative Shaaber, of Heading, in the
House 'becomes a law, motormen, con
| ductors and drivers for horse, c.nblo
and electric railway companies will
work but ten hours a day in this State.
The Shaaber bill provides that it
shall be unlawful for the presideHt,
bokrd of directors, superintendent any
other agent of such company to permit
such employes to work more than ten
hours in the service in any one day. A
violation of the law makes the violator
guilty of a misdemeanor and on convic
tion he shall be sentenced to undergo
an imprisonment of not less tlikn
thirty days or more than six, months.
The s&'ond section of the Shaaber
act, however, is just a bit wgue. It
provides that on the trial of such of
ficer charged with a violation of tiro
law "evidence of the actual service jiy
any motorman, conductor or driver dur
ing more than twelve hours in any ono
day shall be prima facie evidence of
such permission or sufferance by tjio
person on trial."
The act repeals the act of 18$7
which limits t'he hours of such street
railwav employes to twelve and pro
vides for extra compensation for work
done beyond that number. The Shaaber
act arbitrarily fixes the hours at ten
and does not permit of extra work or
extra compensation for any overwork.
