STRIKE REPRESENTATIVES OP LINES AND EMPLOYEES TO MEET AT WHITE HOUSE. AVill Discuss Erdninn Act Train men's Chief Says $17,000,000 Cost of Itaisc Is No Concern of Men. Washington, July 10. Announce ment was made at the White House tonight that President Wilson on next Monday afternoon will meet the representatives of the Eastern trunk lines and of the conductors and trainmen who are threatening to strike. The conference at the White House has been arranged as the result of a joint request by the railroads and the union employees. Itc chief pur pose is to convlce President Wilson of the urgent necessity of the adop tion by Congress of an amendment to the Erdman act, which will open a way for the settlement of the present trouble by arbitration or mediation. 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 representation' of employers and em ployees ana so iar as tne present emergency is concerned tne act is Hill Passed by Senate. A bill amending the Erdman act days ago.

COMPANY E-AT CAMP AT SELINSGROVE BOYS IN BLUE TAKE ACTIVE PART IN CAMP LYNEUVERS. 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. Edmund Finnerty of Honesdale, was a visitor In E company street on Tuesday. The days are very warm but the nights are just the opposite very cool. Sunday night was especially cold and the boys suffered quite a good deal with their one woolen blanket. 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 street pavod with brick. Why not Honesdnlo? Tho boys are looking for some pa pers from home. None have arrived as yet. Hope you won't foget us. Wo break camp Saturday morning and will probably reach home on the last train. STAMP BOOKS NETTING 180,000 YEAR PROFIT. Washington, D. C, July 10.

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.

Plymouth Auto Denier Tells of See ing Harvey's Lake Victim Near Spot Where Body Was Found. Wilkes-Barre, July 9. Another witness was unearthed today in the Alice Crispell case which tends to make the story told by her lover, Herbert Johns, weaker than it was a few days ago. This witness Is Seph Reese, of Plymouth, an automobile dealer who was on the Harvey's Lake road about 11:30 o'clock on the night of July 4, the night Miss Crispell was murdered or acciden tally drowned. Johns declared that he left the girl some time before that and was on his way to this city on the street car. Reese stated to tho county de tective today that he was four miles out in the country beyond the lake to take back a disabled automobile, that ho was coming around the lake at tho hour mentioned when he met a girl wearing a light dress and a young man with a light suit and panama hat. They were close to gether and the young woman seemed to be staggering Indicating partial intoxication. When tho light from the search lamps of the machine directed against the pair, the young man turned his head to ono side but Reese secured a good look at the features of the girl and is satisfied that it was 'Miss Crispell. Later he saw a drunken man lying on a small lumber pile near where the other couple were walking along the road. County Detective Price is now looking for the man who was lying on the lumber pile.

PRICE 2 OB7 'fc r ; i - HOW STATE ACQUIRED fj FOR HOSPITAL AT j iVIEW PHILADELPHIA N E W S PAPER TELLS OF IMPORTANT PART PLAYED BY DR. FITZSLM.MONS 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. HUNTERS' LICENSE LAW. 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 frogs. "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."
