Scramble for Reservations
Biggest in City's History as
Interest in Contest Mounts
The maddcot scramble for reservations
at Philadelphia's larger hotels ever been
experienced by their proprietors Is now
on among football enthusiasts, who
seek accommodations on tho day of the
Army and Navy game at Franklin Field.
Distracted clerks answer countless
telephone calls and thumb over their
lists hundred of tlmce dally In answer
to the over-repeated question, "Can you
take care of us on November IS?" while
managers and nsalstnnt managers pace
corridors wondering how they nro to
take care of tho rush.
Tho long drawn out controversy, which
for months kept supporters of each
branch of tho Government's military
sorvlco on the rack of suspense, whllo
Secretaries Garrison and Daniels nnd
the football committees of both West
rolnt and Annapolis struggled to de
cide whore tho game was to be played,
has resulted in croatlng a greater In

RUSH ALREADY FELT.
Every hotel In this city, that Is, every
hotel which usually has Its complement
of Army and Navy followers, already has
begun to feel tho effects of the on
coming rush. Dignified army and navy
officers have appeared and arranged for
accomodations. .Many reservations have
been made by persons from New York,
Boston. Baltimore and Washington.
Hundreds of motor trios am nlnni
and many will drive here In their cars J
jum ntaroy cuies. extensive prcpara
tlons are being made in the culinary de
partments of hotels to care for the army
of devotees who will dlno In Philadelphia
after tho game.
As has been the custom for many
years, It is expected the Army team will
make Its headquarter at the Bellovue
Strntford, whllo the Navy team, with
Its coaches, trainers and followers, will
be at the Walton.
Already tach of tl.cse hostelrlcs has
begun to make preparations for ap
proaching festivities. Hundreds of
pounds of additional food supplies have
been ordered. Choice wines have been
put in stock and chefs nro planning deli
cacies and confections.
Executives of big hotels aro holding

Each of the hotels where the teams
are quartered will be gaily decorated
with Army and Navy colors and the red,

On the day of the game a glittering
pageant of gaily appareled officers will
be spread over the lobbies of the Belle-vue-9tratford,
nitz-Carlton, Walton, St.
James and Adelphla hotels. Clean-cut
men, resplendld In dress uniforms, will
walk with a dingle across the corridors,

Considerable speculation Is rlfo whether
or not President Wilson will continue to
follow precedent and come to the game

the presence of Mr. Wilson Is a thing
not yet decided upon. The President has
received his formal Invitation, but has

CHESTER COUNTY STREAMS
FAIL AND WATER IS SCARCE
Partners Compelled to Haul Supplies
WEST CHESTER, !,,.. N'ov. ll.-The
drought In Chester County Is tho worst
In many yenrs and In all sections wells
and sprlngR nro drlod up. Many farm
ers nrc compelled to hnul water from
the streams or spring at a distance In
order to provide for their stock and their
families. In some sections farmers liv
ing cl03e together have united nnd tnko
their turns 'dally In hauling a supply of
water from the nearest stream.
At Marshallton. a village with 400 In
habitants, all the wells except about halt
u dozen havo failed and the residents aro
drawing water from thoso who aro more
fortunate In addition to hauling from a
stream, a mile from the place. In Weit
Chester, Coatesvillc arid other towns the
supply Is small and icsldents have been
warned for some weeks to economize.
All the streams are lower than formany
years. The Brandywlne Creek, a large
stream in this section. Is so low that It
can be crossed at almost any point with
out the feet being dampened.
Chester Creek, which supplies this
place, shows less than one-halt Its usual
flow at present.
SCHUYLKILL VALLEY HAS
WORST DROUGHT IN YEARS
Fall Plowing "Unsatisfactory and Sit
uation at Mines Serious.
POTTSVILLE. Ta., Nov. U.-Not for a
half century has the drought situation
been as serious In this section as at tho
present time. It Is 70 days since there
has been any rain of consequence in the
Schuylkill Valloy. In that period only
one Inch of rain has fallen, as against a
normal average of 12 Inches. While fall
Plowing by farmers 1b unsatisfactory, be
cause of the dry, powdery condition of
the soil, there Is still a water supply,
though scant. In most agricultural locali
ties for domestic and cattle purposes.
The serious problem In Schuylkill Is
In tho mining districts, which constitute
the greater portion of the county. The
Heading Company and other mining cor
porations are hauling water in tank cnr.s
In order to supply colliery boilers. De
spite the fact that a dozen water trains
from Lakeside and several other points
in this region are running dally and tho
Schuylkill navigation reservoirs at Tum
bling Run are furnishing a pumping sup
ply for the Schuylkill Valley operations,
there Is very serious apprehension lest
the collieries will have to close down for
want of water for steam purposes dur
ing the winter, when the demand for coal
production will be greatest. All Btreams
are dried up and few springs are running.

tho convention In the name of the or
ganize!) workers of the Dominion.
"We always refer," said Mr. Rlgg, "to
tlio boundary lino between the United
Stales and Canada as 'the Imaginary line.'
"Because of that accldentof fate which
has niddo Canada governed separately
from tho rest of North America, It IS
necessary that we In Canada have a dis
tinct organization, It Is needed to obtain
Canadian legislation for Canadian work
ers. And it enn never become a rival
of the American Federation. It works
for Canadian labor nnd refuses to be In
nny way -,-t rival of your organization.
Wo aro bound to you, however, by the
close tics of Internationalism nnd, to
gether with you, will work for tho wel
fare of tho workers of North America
and the entire world."
"A new spirit of patriotism hag been
awakened In tho mind and tho heart of
the trade union movement which unites
tho workers of tho world. And while that
spirit has not been yet wide enough to
stop that enrnngo going on now on tho
mittloflelds ijf Europe., that spirit Is suffi
ciently strong to mnko It a safe predic
tion that the workers of tho United Stntes
nnd the workers of Canada will never
consent to fly at each others' throats. So
far ns the workers of both of these coun
tries air concerned, thoto will never bo a
single fort erected on the frontier between
the United Slates and Canada to menace

Mr. Rlgg attacked what he termed
"tho recklewi policy of Immigration,"
fo.lercd by tho Canadian Government in
crtler "to deluge tho country with arti
ficial Immigration." Thero nro a great
mans of unomplojcd In Cannda, as a re
sult of this, Mr. Rlgg declared.
"There Is going to be a grcnt dcnl of
suffering In Canada, this winter because
of this," lie said. "Shameful evils of
our Industrial system aro making their
appearance in Canada. Tho Idea that wo
nr a rural people Is utterly erroneous.
Forty per cent, of the nouulatlon of
I Canada lived In cities In 1901.
LARGER URBAN POPULATION.
"At present, Cnnndn, In proportion to Its
population, has a larger urban popularity
than tho United States. Tho harvest
Is great and the call Is there. Organizers
of our international movement should be
sent In there to uproot tho efforts of
destructlonlets who aro trying to under
mine the labor movement."
In this Mr. Rlgg referred to tho Con-i
ndlitu Federation of Labor, which corre
sponds to tho Industrial Workers of tho
World In this country.
Mr. Rlgg also made a pica for distinct
political notion on the part of the workers.
"It Is necessary," he said, "that the
workers have In legislative bodies repre
sentatives of their on 11 class. 1 have al
ways felt a feeling of humiliation when
ot I think that the workers have not
yet leallzed tho Importance of organiz
ing and uslpg the power conferred upon
them by right of tho franchise.
"Vou have read In tho Declaration
of Independence about tha right of the
1 copio to tho pursuit of happiness. The
trouble Is that there Is 11 llttlo too much
of ptirnut and too little happiness. It Is
up to the organized labor movement, both
on the economic and political Jlelds to
bring more happiness into tho life of tho

voted to hearing reports. The report ot
Oliver Wilson, national master, showed
tho work done during tho year. Its de
