Attack by Workmen on En
trenched Position of B.
Pellicoff Resisted by
All of the war news does not come
from Europe, some of It conies from
Camden, where the clan of Pellicoff Is
staunchly resisting the overwhelming
forces of the Pennsylvania Railroad la
a war over property rights. Latest ad
vices from the front show that the
railroad achieved a slight advantage
last night when they stormed the Telll- I
coff's Intrenched position In a series o'
postholes, captured It and creeled a
strong fortification of posts In the
enemy's territory. Thej did not follow
up their advantage, however, and It Is f
enld that although both sides arc guard
ing against offensive movements, media- ,
lion by tho courts will finally be re- .
sorted to to settle the battle. I
The Pellicoff forces arc under the com- j
mand of B. Pellicoff. He Is ably as
sisted by D. relllcoff, Jr.; Sirs. Fanny

the Pellicoff forces Is composed of cm
plo.vos of the Pellicoff coal yard, at
Twelfth street and Atlantic avenue,
which wns attacked by n host of Penn
slvanla Rniltoad workmen, who stole
a. mireh on their opponent at 4 o'clock
osterday morning, attacked tho Pelli
coff olliee and tore away some two or
three feet from the end of tho building,
which, they said, encroached on the rail
loatl property. The concrete blocks were
replaced with a wooden partition by tho
The first warning of the enemv's ad
vance received by the clan of Pellicoff
was when Mrs. Fanny Hell, who lives
net to the coal yard, was nwkaened by
the sound of the walls of the fortress
fnlling under the violent bombaidinent
of the lallroad's sledges She oulcklv
notified her husband of the attack and '
then telephoned to B. Pellicoff, whoso
headquarters are at 1134 Princess avenue
I The latter effected a rapid mobilization
I of his forces, but arrived on the teene
j too late to save the main fortress the

' what ne alleges to be the frontier of his
