The conference at the White House
has been arranged as the result of a
joint request by the railroads and

pose is to convlce President Wilson
of the urgent necessity of the adop

to the Erdman act, which will open
a way for the settlement of the
present trouble by arbitration or
Ready to Approve Amendments.
The representatives of both the
railroads and the employees are pre
pared to give their immediate ap
proval to the proposed amendment
to the Erdman act. The point which
they wish to emphasize is the neces
sity for action at once.
Both sides refuse to arbitrate un
der the Erdman law in its present
form. They take the ground that
the law as at present constituted
does not provide for an adequate

Letter From Citizen's Representa
tive Says Scllnsgrovo Has Pave
Streets. Why Not HonesdnloV
Sellngsgrove, Pa., July 9.
Company E arrived in Scranton
last Saturday morning a little before
8 o'clock on the D. & H. and marched
from the depot to the D L. & W.
station where they joined the Scran
ton companies. The regiment left
Scranton in two sections, and passed
through three pretty heavy rain
storms after we left the Electric City.
We arrived In Sellnsgrove at 12:05
p. m. When about a half a mile from
camp, another heavy rain broke up
on the regiment, accompanied by
thunder and lightning, giving us all
a thorough drenching. Saturday Was
a very easy day on account of the
rain. All the duty we had for Sun
day was church in the morning and
brigade dress parade at 4:00 p. m.
Sunday afternoon a team from Co.
E, with Serg. Dan Faatz pitcher, and
private Heyne catcher, played a team
from Co. D, one supposed to be the
best In the regiment. Co. E boys
handed their opponents a goose egg
to the tune of 4 to 0. Corp. Ray
Alberty started the ball a-rolling.for
Co. E with a nice clean hit. Serg.
Glbney, the heavy hitter, smashed
the only bat broken during the game.
Co. D. claimed they could clean up
any team in the outfit, but they
struck a snag when they crossed bats
with the Honesdale company.
It is fun to watch tho expression
on the faces of the soldiers when
the mail man brings the mail to the
first sergeant tent in tho morning.
Those who receive letters and cards
have smiles but those who receive
none have a different face.
There is not hardly anything oc
curring in the camp that would be
worth taking up your valuable space.
We go out from camp in the morn
ing at about 7:1-5 for maneuvers and
get back to our tents anywhere from
11 to 12:30 p. m, covering between
5 to 10 miles.
The annual summer inspection of
the 13th Regiment will be held on
Friday. Oh. yes! The most Import
ant event of this camp I almost for
got to mention. The officers of Co.
E are going to give us a chicken sup
per Thursday night. It is supposed
to be some affair.
Co. E has the second largest com
pany in camp in tho 13th.
Serg. Thos. Kelley's enlistment ex
pired on Tuesday and received an
honorable discharge, and will leave
camp for home Wednesday.

The State Y. M. C. A. tent Is as
usual well occupied by men writing
letters and cards to friends at home.
They furnish free paper and envelops
here and have all the dally papers of
interest to the men and also many
of tho most popular magazines on
file for them to read.
There has been no cases of sick
ness in our company as yet.
Edward Jones, one of the new
recruits, received this morning
through the mail, a large lemon pie,
from his lady friend at Hawley. Ed
die is going to make a good soldier.
My! but he has a mouth for pie.
Albert Thomas and Geo. Shields
went out this morning on a foraging
trip for the big supper Thursday
night. They got the chicks alright.
I understand they bought 1G and
only could pinch 2, total 18.
One thing I noticed while down
here is that Sellnsgrove, a town of
1300 population, hns their Main

180,000 YEAR PROFIT.
Washington, D. C, July 10.
Stamp books netted the government
$180,000 profit last year and proved
so popular that Postmaster-General
Burleson has approved designs for
two more kinds which will make six
lOne will contain ninety-six one
cent stamps and will sell for ?1,
and the other twenty-four one cent
and twenty-four two cent stamps
and will sell for 75 cents. At pres
ent one cent stamps are sold in
books of twenty-four and two cent
stamps la books of twelve, twenty
four and forty-eight, selling for 25
cents, 50 cents and ?1. The differ

more than does that.

lie Selected nnd Acquired tho Site
Which Cost the State of Pennsyl
vania But $15 Delawnre nnd
Hudson Offered 220 Acres.
The Philadelphia Inquirer in Sun
day's installment of the series of
articles which it Is publishing on
" The State Hospital for the Criminal
Insane at Farvlew, Wayne County,"
tells about selection and acquisition
of the splendid tract of land upon
which the hospital stands. It reads
as follows:
Dr. Thomas C. Fitzslmmons had
been born and reared in that West
ern part of Wayne county where now
190 miles from Philadelphia and 190
miles from New York, the State hos
pital for the Criminal Insane, of
which he is the superintendent and
to the development of which he has
contributed so much, now stands.
He knew the possibilities of the
beautiful and verdant region, and he
directed the attention of Mr. Walton
and other members of the commis
sion to it.
When Mr. Walton, Mr. Sproul and
the rest of the commission visited
the region their enthusiasm know no
bounds. Here, indeed, they agreed,
was an ideal place for an establish
ment of the new institution and for
the fruition of those plans for the
humane and intelligent treatment of
tho criminal insane for which it was
primarily designed.
Negotiations wero entered Into
with the Delaware & Hudson Rail
road Company. The management of
the road saw an opportunity to have
devoloped the country through which
its sixteen-mile Honesdale-Carbon-dalo
branch runs by tho establish
ment of a Stato institution amid tho
mountains of Western Wayne county.
It offered the commission 220 acres
of land after the negotiations were
well under way. Five dollars was the
nominal sum paid for this first allot
ment, of land, although $10,000 had
been appropriated by the State Leg
islature for the purchase of a site
for the new institution.
Sought Arable Land.
But the commission was not sat
isfied. . Mr. Walton and Dr. Fitz
slmmons,, in continuing the negotia
tions pointed out to the railroad
management that the land was not
arable, and ultimately the commis
sion acquired an additional 420
acres, most of It consisting of good,
rich already cultivated soil, which
had been occupied by Alexander Mc
Mullln, a Scotchman. For these
acres which brought the total up to
640, the commission paid another
Subsequent negotiations with the
railroad secured further additions
to the property, until the commis
sion finally secured for the State a
total of"784 acres for no more than
?15, still a third ?5 having been
paid for tho last additions.
These acres comprise verdant
meadows suitable for pasturage;
fruitful farm land, upon which a wide
variety of vegetables may be easily
grown; orchards In which apples
and other fruit trees may blossom;
tablo land that may be carpeted with
green sward overhung by shade
trees, amid which buildings of the
Institution may be reared, and beau
tiful forests, from which an unlimit
ed supply of timber may bo secured,
or which may be transformed Into
groves for recreation purposes.
License Only Necessary to Hunt Pro
tected Game, Says Dr. Knlbfus.
Dr. Joseph Kalbfus, secretary of
the state game commission has issued
a statement explaining the require
ments of the new hunters' license
law. Dr. Kalbfus says:
"The impression seems to have
gone out that the resident hunters'
license law requires residents of this
state to procure a license before they
may hunt for anything in the state.
We are getting numerous letters of
inquiry, especially regarding the kill
ing of frogs by the use of a gun. I
desire to say that this new law re
quires the hunter to obtain a license
only where he Is hunting for some
thing protected by the game laws of
the state. The frog Is not protected
by the game laws, therefore, a li
cense is not necessary for hunting
"These licenses will be Issued
through the several county treasur
ers as soon as properly prepared by
the state printer, which perhaps will
not be for a month or six weeks.
"There Js no bird or animal class
ed as game that may bo hunted at
this time of year. Upland or grass
plover may be killed after July 15.
Tho open season for other game does
not begin until September, and the
licenses will not be In the hands of
the proper authorities long before
that time."
