Mrs. Santa Onus lias established tern

covered this secret when they became lost
from their parents while Melting the toy
stores In the central section today. A bis
policeman said they would And mamma
scon, and sent them to the headquarters
of the matron, Mrs. Margaret Cooper.
The kindly matron padded the young
sters In this manner: "Don't cry, dearie:
while you are waiting for mamma you
may have a nice candy cane. Now let
mo tell you who I am. I'm Mrs. Santa
Clans, and If you stop crying I'll tell Mr.
Santa Claus to bring you nlco toys. What
d6 ou want?"
Her charges recited names of enough
toys to nil threo good-sized stores.
"Oh, you must not bojirccdy," admon-
isnea Airs, santa umus. -now or an mo
nice things you havo named, which do
you want tho most?" Several minutes of
sllenco ensued, and Anally n youngster
of 4 years said hesitatingly:
"Please, Mrs. Santa Claus, If I can't
have all I want, can you ask Santa to
bring mo a nice automobllo7"
"Certainly." Just then cams a knock
on the door. A woman entered.
"My name Is Mrs. Blank. Is my boy
Irwlnt" she cried. And tho next moment
the child was pressed to his mother's
breast and kissed and fondled until ho
appealed to Mrs. Santa Claus.
Then tho matron holped him Into his
ovorcoat and Irwin departed with a
thankful mamma. Ilcforo they .left tho
mother told the matron how thankful
she was, and requested her name.
"That Mrs. Santa Claus I" cried the
youngster before Mrs. Cooper could reply.
"Don't you believe- mo? Look at all
1hoso candy canes bIio has, and look at
til the nice dolls and tojs. Oh, you
can't fool me, mamma that's Mrs. Santa
Claus, and sho will tell her husband to
bring me an auto."
Irwin was dragged Into the elevator, re
luctant to leave.
Within the next hour, other children
wero claimed by their parents, and each
one, boy or girl, left with a candy cane
and a toy.
When tho last ono entered the elevator
Mrs. Cooper heaved, n sigh of relief.
"I get this every year," she said. "The
parents bring their children down to see
Santa Claus and tho toys In the big
stores, anfl In tho twinkling of an eye

NO TRACE OF CRACKSMEN

Detectives are bending every effort to
overtake tho cracksmen who blew tho safe
In tho store of tho Q. A. Schwartz toy
store, 1006 Chestnut street, and escaped
with nearly $3000 In cash. So neatly was
the Job done that the police acknowledge
they have not the slightest clue upon
which to work.
It Is believed that the cracksmen aro the
same ones the police wero warned of
some time ago. It was then said the
band was on Its way to Philadelphia from
The robbery was discovered yesterday
when Henry a. Schwartz, ono of the pro
prietors, visited the store. He found a
number of neatly arranged piles of checks
and foreign coins on a counter, proving
that the burglars were taking no chances
on anything which might lead to their

CITY BIDS POSTPONED.
The nrst active Btep to gain advantage
of tho decision was taken by Herman
Locb, Director of the Department of
Supplies, who postponed the opening of
bids for more than 11,000,000 worth of
coal for tho city from December 23 to
December 21. This will give deators time
to reduce their estimates.
Coal men today aro discussing the pos
sibility of the Government eventually
ordering a cut In tho freight rates on
coal passing through this city, That
part of these rates covering the distance
between the mines and Philadelphia pro
vided tho basis for tho action resulting
In tho present decision, being consider.,
ably lower than tho rates for shipments
that end hero.
Bhoutd tho Government order n cut In
(ho through ratci, they again will be
come so much lower than the new rates
to this city that action before tho State
Commission for another reduction In tho
local rate Is possible.
A surprising statement was mado by
Harold S. Shertz, one of the two at
torney v,ho fought the case to a suc
cessful conclusion. Ho expressed tho
opinion that tho railroads will not at
tack the constitutionality of tho com
mission or Its nets, and declared thnt nt
tho time tho suit was started the Bead
ing business department wanted to
grant n 'slight decrease In tho rates.
According to Mr. Shertz, this depart
ment was overruled by tho legal depart
ment, winch Insisted on fighting tho enso
before tho commission. Tho, Pennsyl
vania Railroad also advised that a cut
bo mado In tho hard coal rate, It Is" snld,
but followed tho Reading when that road
Insisted on contesting the action.
A saving of $1,500,000 bv Philadelphia
ro.il consumers will bo brought about by
tho decision. It Is estimated,
Philadelphlans buy about 4,000,000 tons
of coal each year, and the saving, should
It ever reach tho consumer, will bo about
11,500,000. Some doubt as to whether the
consumer will get tho benefit of tho cut
In rates nlrcady has been expressed. It
has been suggested that the coal mining
companies may Incrcaso prices of coal at
tho mines. Retailers also have been talk
ing this v, Inter ot a 23-ccnt-a-ton In
crease, and should these bo made tho 10
cent rate cut will be worth nothing to
WOULD FIGHT INCREASE! AT MINES
Should tho mining companion attempt
to Incrcaso the prlco of coal at tho
mines, the attorneys will mako a deter
mined fight against tho rise. Mr. Pier
son lntlmatos that arrests may follow
should an effort bo mado to cheat the
public out of tho rato decrease.
Pennsylvania's coal Aelds are In three
great districts, Schuylkill, Lehigh and
Wyoming. Tho Philadelphia and Read
ing -and Its subsidiaries control most of
tho hard coal trafllc to this city, but
tho Pennsylvania Railroad also has a
good share. Rates on both roads from
tho Schuylkill district have been J1.70
a ton on prepared sizes, $1.40 a ton on
pea coal and 11.25 a ton for steam sizes.
From the Lehigh region the Reading
rate has been )1.86 a ton on prepared,
11.56 on pea and 31.41 on steam sizes, while
the Pennsylvania rate has been 51.73 on
prepared, 31.45 on pea and $1 30 on steam
sizes. The Wyoming rate on the Read
ing has been $2.10 on prepared, 31.75 on
pea and 11.51 on steam sizes, and the
Pennsylvania rate from this region 31.80
on prepared, (1.50 on pea and $1.35 on
Under the ruling of the Public Service
Commission, pea and steam sizes will go
for tho same rate. Each rate named Is
ordered reduced by 40 cents a ton. Tho
complainants asked for larger reductions
In nearlv every Instance, but are satisfied
with the ruling of the commission.
The reduction will more nearly equalize
rates to this city and rates to other
