"According to a detailed description
of the Franco-'BritisJi losses at the Dar
danelles, as given by an Athens news
paper, 2,000 men were killed and five
warships were sunk. 'Four other war
ships were damaged 'badly. The com

the crew were drowned by t'he inrush
of water. The French battleship Suf

Tihe British Admiralty's account of
the fighting at the Dardanelles on
March 18 said that the Inflexible was
hit by a heavy shell on the

purts of Germany, In a recent article
von Batocki makes an appeal for the
return of these refugees. East Prussia,
he declares, cannot spare this portion
of its population, and is apt to suffer
from (lie loss of even a small propor
tion of its inhabitants.

Interests Favoring the
Repeal of the Present
Law Say It is a Need
less Burden
Several Speakers Declare That Extra
Men Now Required by the Statute
for the Operation of Trains Do Not
Add to Safety
The hearing in the Senate chamber
late yesterday afternoon on tfhe meas
ure introduced in the House to repeal
the full crew bill did not <lose until 6
o'clock, but it was full of interest
through all the long hours of the ses
sion. The advocates of repeal received
close attention, and James Scarlet and
John C. Bell, attorneys for the train
men, whose side will be heard next
Tuesday, made copious notes as the
various speakers presented their argu
ments. At the close of the address of
A. B. Farquhar, of York, w4o pleaded
for the repeal of the bill on the ground
that it would make business better, the
chair introduced many speakers in quick
succession. ~
Alba B, Johnson, president of the
Baldwin locomotive works, declared the
full crew act was an unjust law be
cause it did not deal fairly with cap
ital or even with laibor, as in his opinion
it required men for places not needed.
It appeared to htm to be a move toward
State Of oration which lie held would 'be
unfortunate. uMr. Johnson asserted that
the full crew act had diminished pur
chasing power of railroads and thereby
affoCxed many industries especially the
railroad supply lines.
Says Extra Men Are Not Needed
George Stuart Patterson, of the Penn
sylvania railroad, then argued against
the act as it stands. He declared it had
been shown that t4ie extra man was not
needed by many .ests and that not an
aoeident-w'hieh could ITSve been prevent
ed by the extra man had been found.
Over 500 trains in Pennsylvania carry
men in excess of what the law requires
"This statute,'' declared Mr. Pat
terson, "in common with otner cases,
has curtailed railfoad improvements,
and so diminished railroad purchases as
to work the severest injury to the indus
tries and people of this State. In the
last five years the thirty live Eastern
railway systems iuvested over $900,-
000,000 in yards, tracks, equipment,
stations anil other facilities for the
transportation of passengers anil freight
and at the einl of this period found
themselves, due to extra crew laws as
well as to'other causes, with $9;i,000,-
000 less of net operating income than
'before the investment was made."
E. (.U. Herr, president of the West
inghouse Company, said the law in re
quiring men not needed forced unscien
tific 'business methods on railroads and
also endangered discipline.
Paul U. Wright, Krie manufacturer,
declared that the -Legislature sihould
take steps to burdens and not re
tain laws that mean economic losses. C.
J. Phillips, division superintendent of
the Delaware, and West
ern. a railroad man for thirty years,
s|x>ke for the repeal from the railroad
operators' tide, while C. J. Tyso|), of
Adams county, spoke for horticultural,
dairy, agricultural and other interests,
objecting to increased expenditures for
unnecessary men because of the burden
falling on shippers.
Calls It Drain on Roads
c'oleman Sellers, a Philadelphia man
ufacturer, said railroads could be de
pneded upon adequately to man trains
because accidents are expensive.
George E. Bartol, president of the
Philadelphia'.Bourse, declared .it was up
to the opponents of the repeal to sihow
a reduction of accidents through opera
tion of the aet ami t'hat greater safety
is due to the extra man.
Thomas H. Greer, Butler, a Pennsyl
vania railroad solicitor and former rail
road employe, told what a brakeman
used to do years ago and what he does
to-day, together with statements as to
pay. 'Mr. Greer said that the extra man
wiho must now 'be employed iu Penn
sylvania is dro-pped when t'he Wain en
ters Ohio, and yet in his opinion travel
in Ohio is not less safe. He considered
the fuiM crew law an unjust drain on the
railroads. •
John 8. Fisher, of Indiana, former
'Senator and now solicitor t'or the New
York Central, said that the whole man -

at any drug store. It acts without
assistance, tastes nice, and causes no
Inconvenience. Accept no substitute.
This Mark Means Juicy, Sweet, Spicy g
Florida Oranges and Grapefruit 9
Oranges and grapefruit are good because of the juice—the pulp B
has little food value. When you eat an orange or grapefruit, I
how good it is depends upon the amount of juice it contains. r
The juice increases in quantity each day which the fruit is ripen
ing on the trees —and becomes sweeter as the citric acid turns to
sugar. The flavor also improves and the fruit becomes spicier.
Your Protection Against Unripe, Inferior Fruit
Because they believe io advancing their own interests by protecting the interests of
the consumers, the members of the Florida Citrus Exchange put into the market
only tree-ripened juicy fruit. It is sweet, spicy and delicious. The Exchange
mark in red on boxes and wrappers is the buyer's safeguard.

the enactment of the full crew law the
Public Service Commission has come

Mr. Fisher argued that the question

for the commission's supervision and
transference of manning of trains to
the State Board would work no hard
