ganization candidates for Mayor and the
No deflnito ticket has been decided upon
as yet, but leading members of tho Public
Service Committee of 100, following tho
meeting last night at which plans wero
made for forming a new political party
with which to carry on their light, tho
names of high-class men aro being con
sidered for every office.
THE TICKET DISCUSSED.
The ticket as discussed follows:
GEOnGE D. POIlTBIl
SAMUEL D. SCOTT
GKOIIGE D. COX or POWELL EVANS
Recorder of Deeds
WILLIAM F. DEAKYNE or
DIl. PHILIP II MOORE
JOHN M. WALTON
Clerk of the Courts
A majority of the members of the Com
mittee of One Hundred favor the candi
dacy of Porter, but he has not been in
dorsed by tho committee as yet. This
action probably will bo takei, howevpr,
nt the meeting of the Executive Commit
tee of tho Committee of One Hundred
Nono of the names connected with any
of tho "Row" offices has been definitely
determined upon. Members of the com
mltee today made It clear that the ticket
named abovo has only been put forth as a
suggeshtlon, and that changes may be
made before the independents' ticket
Is finally Indorsed.
Samuel B. Scott, mentioned as the Inde
pendents' candidate for City Solicitor,
was a Washington party candidate for
the Legislature of 1913 from the Ger
mantown district. He was defeated for
re-election by a narrow margin In the
Republican landslldo last fall.
George D. Cox has been indorsed for
Sheriff by tho Washington Party City
Committee. Ho Is Select Councilman
from the 41d Word. Powell Evans was
chairman of the body of business men.
who brought about a reorganization of
tho Committee of 100 and who took the
first step In tho campaign of the Inde
pendents this year.
William F. Deakyne Is a former Wash
ington party leaCer. He was treasurer
of tho Washington Party City Commltteo
in 1912 and 1913.
There is apparently no Indication of
any plan of tlie independents to oppose
the re-election of Captain Walton, and
it is probable that he will be Indorsed
by tho Committee of 100.
Dr. Philip H. Moore, who Is being
urged by the independents to enter the
contest for Coroner, Is a powerful "in
dependent leader In West Philadelphia.
He lost a seat in the present Common
Council to which his friends thought he
had been elected two years ago, when
the coutts decided in an election contest
In favor of Dr. William D. Bacon, an Or
ganization lieutenant. Magistrate Ben
jamin Rcnshaw, who will most probably
make the fight against Thomas W. Cun
ningham for Clerk of the Courts, is a
Washington Party man and was formerly
committing Magistrate at City Hall.
NEW NAME SECRET.
Plans for putting the new municipal
party In the field for the campaign thla
fall were made at tho meeting last night,
which was attended by the Campaign
Committee pf the Committee of 1000 and
by workers and prominent citizens from
nearly every ward In the city, The nam
of the new party will be kept a secret
until the title has been pre-empted.
Tho committee has until October 12 In
which to pre-empt the title for the new
party. Some time before that date five
men In each ward and 15 at large In the
city will visit the Independent headquai
ters at 213 South Broad street and will
sign the pre-emption papers together.
Then the papers will be taken to the
County Commissioners' office and the

The purpose of the new party. It was
explained at the meeting last night, is
to provide a means to gain the support

Congressman Mooro Visits Col

Terso comment on the candidacy of
Congressman William S. Vare Is being
made In tho Pcnrose-McNlchol faction of
the Republican Organization, following
tho filing of nomination papers for the
Mayoralty by Vare,
Senator McNIchol lost his usual smile.
Tho suggestion was made that the filing
of Vare'a papers "knocked McNlchol'8
harmony talk to smithereens."
His anwer was, "So that's your only In
terpretation." Congressman J. Hampton Moore, fo
whom a clty-wlde boom was launched
several weeks ago by manufacturers, vis

R. Lincoln McNeil, chairman of tho
Board of Directors of the Kensington
Board of Trade, also issued a state
ment. In which ho asserted that the
Board, as a body, had not Indorsed
Thomas B. Smith or ay one clso for
'Mayor. Ho denied that tho meeting of
tho "northwest business men," presided
over by A. C. Keelcy, president of the
Board, was a meeting of Board members.
The meeting was bald several days ago,
and Smith was Indorsed by the men who
No new candidates for Mayor havo
appeared today. Director of City Transit
A. Merrltt Taylor today amplified his
statement announcing that he Is not a
candidate. Ills statement follows;
"During tho campaign for adequate
rapid transit facilities in Philadelphia,
many earnest and enthusiastic citizens
have rallied to the support of tho depart
ment of city transit regardless of their
political affiliations. I am informed that
certain of these Individuals who have ac
corded me their friendship and support,
which I value most highly, aro now cir
culating nomination papers in various
sections of tho city, with a view of hav

mayoralty. It would be unfair on mv
part to permit them to thus expend their

by the citizens of every political party.
"Last winter when a relentless public
campaign was being waged for the Im
mediate establishment of the high-speed
lines. It will be remembered that certain
Individuals attributed my activities to a
desire for political preferment. In order
to correct this misapprehension, I took
the opportunity to define my position at

Academy of Mnslc. on February 21, and
there made the following public state

become a factor In Important work which
still remains to be performed by the De

Tho Building Trades Council of Phila

The battalion consisted of four com

who were picked for their attendance and

Colonel Hamilton D. Turner headed
tho battalion, with Lieutenant Colonel
Charles J. noss, Major M. J. Pickering
nnd Lieutenant Joseph Moorehead, bat
talion adjutant. The companies were
commanded by Captains James M. John
son, George A. Morrison, Frank P. Rud
dat and J, G. Cranage.
The funds for the trip were raised by
the men through public subscription and
by an appropriation of 5000 by Councils.
The guardsmen assembled at the Id
Regiment Armory at 1:30 and marched
to the Reading Terminal, where they
entrained, the baggage was loaded at
Iiroad and Huntington streets.
The entire trip will take 21 days. The
westward itinerary includes Buffalo, De

AN INTERESTING and illuminine article entitled "Alcohol
ism and Crime" (now in its second edition) has been
written by Thomas Speed Mosby, member of American Insti
tute Criminal Law and Criminology and former Pardon Attor
ney of Missouri. Some extracts from this analytic and thought
ful treatise follow. Says Mr. Mosby:
"HT HE STATEMENT has been freely made that 75 per cent
A of the crime of the United States is due to the use of
alcoholic drinks. That statement is not true of any State in the
American union, nor is it true of the United States, nor of any
foreign nation. Penal statistics do indicate that from 20 per cent,
to 60 per cent of the population of the various American state
prisons have been addicted in some degree to the use of intoxi
cating liquors, but in all my professional reading and omciai
experience I haoe never learned of any penitentiary contain
ing a total inebriate population of at much at 20 per cent. .

JT CtS Versus
FACT is a real state of things. FALLACY is an appar
ently genuine but really illogical statement or argument.
OpcRTY per cent of the inmates of this penitentiary are
a victims of intemperance,' says a prison warden. He
would have said substantially the same thtng had he declared
that CO per cent of his convicts were men of temperate habits
and sober lives. But the fact that 60 per cent of 'il rison popula
tion are men of temperate habits is no argument' against tem
perance, nor is the fact that 40 per cent of-them have used alco
holic drinks an argument against intemperance. It would be
just as rational to attack the Prohibitionists because a sober man
commits a crime as it is to assail the practice of drinking alco
holic beverages when a drunken man commits a crime of similar

TO ROOSEVELT THRUST
"When You Stub Your To,
Now, You Aro Too Old to
Cry," War Secretary
SAYS CASE IS CLOSED
WASHINGTON, Aug. 2S.-"Tut, tut.
Colonel." Is Secretary of War Garrison's
reply to former President Roosevelt's at
tack of last night. The Secretary pre
pared a statement In answer to Roose
velt which. he gave out today. It followo'
"The enso Is closed and the verdict
"Thero la nothing In Mr. Roosevelt'a
pica to reopen the case that would make
It proper to do so. The personal and of
ficial relations between General Wood
and myself concern us nnd do not prop
erly concern Mr. Roosevelt I do not
require Mr. Roosevelt's assistance to de
termine what I should do and I seriously
doubt If tho General does.
"The Administration (outside of my
relf) hna had nothing whatever to do
with this matter, and Mr. Roosevelt,
therefore, could not have obtained nny
authentic knowledge of the views of the
Administration concerning his speech or
his conduct from anything that I have
said or do now,
"As to his assumption that I object to
the making of strong speeches for proper
military preparedness, it would be Im
possible for him to entertain a more un
warranted one. I have gone to the limit
of my vocabulary In an endeavor to
make such pleas Just as strong as words
cculd mako them. If he has found some
stronger than I wns able to rind, he run
tho risk that I will borrow them.
"Ho will, I feel sure, permit me to do
so much, without requiring also to bor
row hln Idea that our present state of
unprcparedncss makes it desirable to en
gage In war with four or Ave other na
tions. "As to 'buffoonery' tutl tut! Colonel!
Remember that when you stub your toe,
now, you are too old to cry, even If It
hurts too much to laugh."
