GREATER CITY VISION
TO BECOME REALITY
BY LEGISLATIVE AID
Through Loan Amend
ments City Will Be Per
mitted to Spend Millions
on Development, Says
Senator Vare. '
Declnres Bills Constitute Com
prehensive Financial Plan
for Transit and Port Im
provements, Placing Phila
delphia Among World Cities.
tU a Qtaff Correspondent
MARni8tlUna, Stny 7.-Senator Vnro In
an Interview today nssortrd that the two
amendments to the State Constitution that
he Is sponsoring will pave the way for
Philadelphia's rapid development ns a
municipality and a seaport.
The principal amendment that the down
town Philadelphia political leader is ppon
sor'ng Is tho one to Incrcaso the borrow
Ins capacity of tljo city from 7 to 10 per
cent of (ho nssesscd valuation of Its tax
able property for transit and port Im
provement. This was Introduced and
passed In I9l6 and was finally passed by
the Legislature yesterday preparatory to
beln? submitted to the voters of tho Stnto
next November. Tho other amendment,
which was introduced this week, removes
tho restrictions) that the transit amend
ment places upon tho Increase.
"Tho amendment which has Just passed
the Legislature," said Senator Vare, In
a statement today, "wtll enable tho city
to hovo a start of two years on the con
struction of transit facilities and port
Improvements. Tho new nmondment must
pass this and tho LoslBlature of 1917, and
then bo voted upon before It can becomo
effective. By tho time this second amend
ment becomes operative an effective start
; will have been made on transit and port
t Improvements, so that attention and
v money may be turned to other needed
c public Improvements
"Tho amendment which has Just passed
, the Legislature, If It Is approved at tho
- ?olls In November and I havo not the
, (.lightest doubt that It will be will
Place Philadelphia In a position to go
forward with comprenenslvo and broad
r transit faclitles and nort flevnlnnmont
This will fncan much to tho city In many
f wnys.
'r "Great numbers of men will bo em-
ployed In" Hie construction of the Im
, provements, artd In the end the cltlzcnt
i will bo benefited through more modern
transit falllltles and Increased shipping.
MILLIONS IN WAGES.
"Millions of dollars will bo paid out In
wages by the employment of thousands
of men, and this alono will give notable
Impetus to the Industries of tho city.
Enormous amounts of material will bo
Used In tho wojk, and unquestionably tho
bulk of this material should bo obtalncii
In Philadelphia. It has been estimated
that upward of $43,000,000 will bo expend
ed for wages to workmen In manufactur
ing and preparing the material.
"Philadelphia institutions go outside of
tho State to Invest millions of dollars In
the dovolojment of railroads, mines and
other enterprises. If this money wero
used In the city It would bo productlvo of
a, greater local stimulation and would
bring better times to tho residents of Phil
adelphia. "The proposed amendment to bo buo
mltted in November permits tho city of
Philadelphia to borrow an amount equal
to 3 per cent, of tho assessed aluutiou
of taxable property in excess of tho 7
per cent, tho city Is now permitted to
b6rrow, the 3 per cent to bo used for
transit facilities and port development.
"Under the amendment the incrcaso In
borrowing capacity will net the city up
ward of 166,000.000. This estimate is baBed
en the City Cfintroller's figures for tho
assessed valuation of taxable property In
1MJ.
"With this money, Immense strides can
bo made by tho city In the work or Im
proved transit and port development
Philadelphia needs both better transit
and more extensive port facilities, Sec
tions pf the city which are almost unoc
cupied can be turned Into thriving com-
f. munltlea.by adequate transit facilities. In
I? even- way tho cltv will benefit from this
condition, Prosperous communities nre
the life of a big city, and by giving the
resident of outlying districts tho oppor
tunity of getting In close toucb with the
municipality's center a condition la cre
ated which brings Industrial and civic
activity.
v SHOULD BB GREATEST CENTRE.
"Philadelphia Is in dire need of ad
vanced port development, Tho Delaware
river Is Pennsylvania's natural channel
of communlcatlop with all the markets of
the world, and because of this, Philadel
phia should unquestionably bo one of the
busiest shipping centres not only In the
United Statest but In the world. Phila
delphia Is situated closer to all Inland
shipping points than any other Atlantic
port and can boast of advantages which
era not possessed by any of her Eastern
later cities New York not excepted.
"WWeri the European war Is oVer and
commerce Is again given Its normal
standing, ships will be clamoring for
docking facilities, on the Atlantic sea
board, Unless the States on the Atlantic
seaboard provide necessary docks, the
Panama Canal will fall of Its principal
object, a cheaper means of transporta
tion between the eastern and western
coasts
''Massachusetts has foreseen the situ
ation and is now concerned with the work
of improving the Boston harbor. New
York is In a, position where It can do
vary Jlttle to increase its shipping facili
ties. Its rvee front Is literally crowded
with docks and piers, and any Improve
niciild must be mado at points removed
from the business section of the city,
"Other snipping points along the Atlan-
tic seaboard, notably Baltimore and Nor-
: folk, are apparently making no especial
rjbrta to attract the anticipated Influx
- o iraae from tne- 1'acinc coast, and this
la pre-eminently the time for Pennsyl
vania to arouse, itself and make Philadel
phia the most advantageous port in the
United States.
"The proposed, amendment provides that
when, transit and port developments have
been acquired or constructed, and when
they have been placed on an Income-producing
basis, such portion of the bonds
as have been issued therefor, which are
then supported as to annual Interest ana
sln&liig fund payments accruing thereon
by annual net income produced thereby.

senllng th total cost thereof But such
portions of the bonds Issued as aro sus
tained as to Iho Interest and sinking fund
requirements out of tho net earnings pro
duced may bo excluded from the city's
debt In estimating the borrowing capacity.
"Tho amendment permits Philadelphia
to Issue S0-ycar bonds Instead of 30-year
bonds, thereby reducing the nnnual sink
ing fund requirements from 2A per cent
on tho par vnlua of bonds Issued to 1
per cent, on the par value of the bonds
Issued. On a bond Issue of, say,
50 000,000 this will reduce tho annual pay
ments required, In nddltlon to Interest
for sinking fund purposes, by 1(4 per
cent, a saving on such an Issuo of
J75O.000.
"Tho amendment permits graded sink
ing fund Instalments to be established,
and ns a result In tho early years the
sinking fund payments may bo made
merely nominal, Increasing mutually as
the producing cnpaclty of the constructed
facilities Increases, so that In tho early
years of operation the sinking fund
charges, In nddltlon to tho Interest ac
cruing on the bonds Issued, will be kept
down to a minimum Interest and sinking
fund payments on bonds IsBUcd accruing
during tho period of construction nnd
during the first year of operntlon to bo

will bo able to finance and construct
rapid transit facilities nnd port Improve
merits and havo them In completo opera
tion for one yenr before tho Interest or
sinking fund payments on tho bonds be
como a clmrgo against current revenues.
"Under the terms of the amendment tho
city Is given ndequate borrowing cnpoelty
for both transit nnd port Improvement
Current Income will bo relieved from tax

COURT
Just because Benjamin Hinds, an optim
istic Negro, was nil dressed up, with no
apparent destination, he looked "easy"
to Burnett Cassell and Joe Smith, of the
same complexion, They "sized Hinds up"
when lio wasn't looking and concluded
that he had a roll which would come In
handy,
By way of striking a chord of sym
pathy, Cassell and Smith told Hinds they
had been robbed In a pool room. Hinds
was sorry and he helped the two pals to
find the man Who rohbed them. But no
trace of their thief could be fpund. Then
It occurred to Cassell and Smith that r.
little gambling game would help them to
forget their trouble.
They first guessed how much each other
had and Hinds lost. Then t'ney guessed
the number of figures on each other's
dollar bills and Hinds lost. When they
were ejected from a pool room, Cassell
suggested an open-air game of match
ing dollars on the sidewalk. And some
how or other Hinds again lost. An argu
ment followed and before it could bo
straightened out, Cassell and Smith dis
appeared, Hinds trailed them and while
they were celebrating their winning he
told Policemen Ashe and Wharton. Smith
got away by mixing in with a crowd,
but Cassell was not so agile

When William Beatty finds business
bad he resorts to Impudence. He has
a very poor opinion of persons who do
not buy his shoe laces and pins, and he
expresses It very emphatically.
Not satisfied with bringing many tired
housewives to tho door In West PhUa
ilelphia today, he denounced them rou.io
ly when they declined to make purchases.
In i ono of two Instances ho predicted ter.
rlble retribution for the women who
came to the door, Furthermore, he
threatened to tell all ho knew about
them.
This so angered one woman near Mth
street and Woodland avenue that she
brought a broom down on Beatty's faded
high hat. He) went down backwards ore
the step and sat down suddenly on tho
sidewalk.
Policeman Dickinson saw the peddler
fall, and prevented a second attack When
the cop heard the cause ot the commo
tion he agreed that the woman was
right, and took Beatty to the 3!d street
and Woodland avenue station.
Magistrate Harris, who U a promoter of
courtesy, also agreed with the woman an
