Alonzo B. Fox, of Burlington, N, J.,
wants to brlnpr his "silent rlflo" nint
belt of "adamantine cattrldgos" over to
Philadelphia and open sanguinary war
fare on tho pigeons that flutter about
He has written tilrcclor Porter placlnc
his skill as a rllleman at the disposal
of tho city. Fox stands ready to "sin
up" with Director Porter In a contnu t
to shoot every last pigeon that ever
dropped a feather lit City Hall court"
This Is what Vox told the director In
"A short time ago t read an account of
s. suggestion to get rid erf the pigeons
around the Public Buildings. While It la
no small matter to get rid of them, I
would llko to offer my services along thts
line, and If It meets with your appioval
plcaso let me hoar from you.
"When I was n boy of 10 years I wa3
engaged to rid the cathedral nt isth and
Race streets of this same nuisance, which
cost hundreds of dollnrs rvrv spring.
Thomas Burns, the Janitor at that time,
secured me for this service. My grand
father, who was supervisor of tho Water
Department of the Otl District, tinder
Frederick Graff, and who was a un
known citizen of the 10th Ward, lived on
the northwest corner of SOth and Sum
mer streets: his namo was Simiicl M.
Fox. He secured for mo the privilege
of using my silent rllle on the street
about the church from the lieutenant of
police at 13th and Filbert streets,
"My agreement with them was that
they furnish the ammunition, glvo ma
free access to their building, pay mo $1
for each pigeon killed, but t had to get
tho last pigeon, which I did. I killed 01
birds In three weeks ar.d received $31.
"The ball I uso Is an adamantine cart
ridge, and will not destroy the stone on
the buildings, and t will be responsible
for any loss or accidents that may occur.
"If you are considering onterlnc Into
any agreement, I would bo glad to sign
up with you."
THE OFFICIALS ACT.
After reading the letter. Director Porter
recalled what the Society for tho Pro
tection of Cruelty to Animals and a few
thousand citizens said when tho sug
gestion to exterminate tho pigeons was
made n few weeks ago.
Then ho hustled over to Director Cooke's
ofllce and the two cabinet members read
in unison Kox's description of his
prowess with tho rifle.
"Some shooter." said Director Cooke.
"I think tho pigeons come under the
head of City Property," said Director
Porter to Director Cooke, "and. In that
case It's up to you to answer this Iettor."
Director Cooke buing unable to classify
tho pigeons satisfactorily In the Public
Safety Department accepted the commis
sion and today wrote the following1 letter
to Mr. Fox, of Burlington:
"It Is very good of you to write as you
do under date of October M, offering your
assistance In the matter of exterminating
the pigeons at tho Citv Hull. Your past
record In pigeon shooting, as stated In
your letter, shows you to be some
"I have no thought, however, to do
away with the pigeons On the contrarv,
wo are very glad to havo them with us.
They afford a good deal of amusement
and pleasure to people who frequent tho
neighborhood of tho City Hall. I am quite
sure that any move to harass them would
bo resented. In order to make these birds
more comfortable In their occupancy of
tho City Hall, and to make It unnecessary
for them to nest In the scales of Justice
nnd other sculptured decorations of the
building, we have recently placed some
comfortable cotes on the roof.
"If your silent rifle shooting adaman
tine cartridges could bo used on certain
real nuisances which wo have In Phila
delphia, with as much success as It has
evidently been used on pigeons, I would
predict a big uso for it."

J. DENNY O'NEIL COMES OUT
AGAINST PENROSE CANDIDACY
Pittsburgh County Commissioner
Says Rum Will Not Rule State.
PITTSBURGH, Oct. 23. .1. Donny
O'Xell, County Commissioner of Alle
gheny County, elected on the Republican
ticket, has corns out against Senator
Penrose, declaring his belief that tho
t-enatrr cannot carry moro than threo
counties west of tho Schuylkill River. A
statement given to the Kveni.vo Lcnonn
"The sentiment against Penrose In tho
western part of the State Is growing;
by election day It will havo assumed tho
proportions of a tidal wave. I do not
bellevo that he will carry more than
thrco counties west of the Susquehanna
"In the western part of tho Stato Ten
rose Is not a political Issue, but rather
a moral Issue. Many Organization Re
publicans will not support him since they
havo come to understand that his Per
sonal Liberty ticket was placed In tho
Held for tho purposo of defeating all dry
candidates upon tho Republican ticket. I
have been Informed that the Personal
Liberty ticket was placed In the field to
secure tho votes of the liquor dealers
for Tenrose, as the liquor dealers de
clared that if they could not have any
local wet candidates to vote for they
would not voto at all.
"The attempt on the part of a few
corporations to force their employes to
voto for Penrose his reacted nnd will
have tho opposite effect. It Is an Insult
tn the intelligence of the voters to say
that the future prosperity of this great
State can be Influenced by any single in
dividual and the voters all know that
Penrose's cry of soup houses and panic
is raised to intimidate the voters.
"Senator Penrose has done moro to
ward making Pennsylvania dry than al
ether causes combined. In order to
further his Interests he has Induced the
saloons and brewers to organize and so
into politics as a body. By doing so he
has made the saloons a State Issue and
the people of this State will not stand
for ram rule.

so far as permitted by tho regulations

"London has been the money market

work. American manufacturers seeking

"To develop successfully this new
market will requite a degree of co-opera-tlon
nnd co-ordination heretofore un
known," Mr. Klcs continued, deploring
the refusal of Americans In Buenos Aires
to organlzo a board of trade for fear It
might help competition.
"If trade opportunities nro developed

"this eur, marked In history by the
greatest tragedy of civilisation, will be

PENROSE BROKE FAITH
BY MENTIONING LETTER
R. 31. Quay Had Ills Promise Not to
Discuss Roosevelt Communication.
PITTSBURGH, rn., Oct. SO. R. R.
Quay today made It plain that Colonel
Roosevelt in any lotter ha has written
to Quay has not even remotely Indicated
a wish to rid the Progressive movement
In Pennsylvania of William Plliin.
Beyond a definite statement to this ef
fect Mr. Quny declined to (Uncus the
matter, pending Colonel Roosevelt's au
thorization to do so.
Quay's comment on Fllnn was prompt
ed by a statement Penroso Is ci edited
to have made In HarrUburg last night,
that Quay had told him Roosevelt's let
ter expressed a wish to rid the party
Quay and Fllnn are now political ene
mies, and Quay said he gave tho assur
ance, not for Fllnu'a sake, but in Jubtico
to Colonel Roosevelt.
Roosevelt has refused Quay's permis

reply to one Quay sent Itocwevelt, pro
tecting against FUnn's bundling of the
Progressive movement In Pennsylvania.
"There Is nothing In tho letter," said
Quay today, "which I think Colonel
Uoosevelt would mind having published,
but thai is for him to say."
Incidentally It developed that Penrose,
when he mentioned the letter at all,
broke fulth with Quay, huln given liU
word that he would not make any public
use whatever of what had been a private
conversation between the two when Pen

NEWARK, N. J.. Oct. SK.-huit to re
cover bonds and secuilttes worth $9S,000
from his wife, Mrs. Hattle Andreas, was
started today by Wendell Andreas, of
Tea Neck, Bergen County.
The couple separated in September, 1913,
when Mrs. Andreas withdrew the secu
rities from a safe-deposit box. The hus
band contends that Mrs. Andreas never
held title to the secutltles and had no
right to remove them.
The wife admits she remuved the se
curities, but contends they represent her
share of the mate under an agreement
made between herself and husband.
