CLYDE RING LECTURES
ON "PUBLIC OPINION"
Says Factional Fights in Po-
l litical Parties Help So
iPublic opinion Is rapidly becoming tho
tee vrhlch vvellds tho scepter of umoc
itcy. according to Clydo L. King, nsslst-
ut professor of political science at tho
Wrenlty of Pennsylvania, wno delivered
u address thbi afternon at Houston Hall
a' "Public Opinions as Viewed by Eml
nt Tolltlcal Theorists."
VPubllo opinion is no longer tho mob
wrllng in the street," ho said. "It is
tot merely a people Indignant; It Is not
fticlle, shallow, popular Impression ot
Hi moment; It is something more than a
Keponderant opinion, or a general opln-
ta, or a public Judgment. It Is a mature
todal Judgment reached after experiences
ttre ben recounted, hopes and fears ex
pressed and results weighted."
Th8 merits of public opinion were said
w the lecturer to lie in the fact that It
m a w)do gamut ot sanction, is flexible,
Utetratlsg, prompt and cheap. "Its de
Itds,'' he said, "are Its Indeflnlteness. Its
pusional character, itfc short memory, its

BYBERRY LINE ROUTE
Councils' Committees Will
Make Trip Transit Plan for
the 35th Ward
One phase of the complicated transit
question was considered by members of
Councils today when the Finance Com
mittee and the Street Hallway Committee
Inspected the rnuto ot the proposed high
speed surface lino from Bridge street and
Frankford avenue to the City farms at
Byberry. This line, estimated by Director
Taylor to cost $1,100,000 for construction
alone, will acne the 35th Ward, which Is
now practically without tianslt facilities
of any kind.
A 1)111 calling for n spcclnl loan or
$1,500,000 for the Hue was Introduced nt
the last session of Councils by Select
Councilman Georgo Mitchell, of tho 35th
Ward. The bill was referred to tho
Finance Committee nnd early this week It
was decided to go over tho route to de

Under the plan of former Director Tay
lor property owners In the ward wero
to give the land free, so that tho only
cost to tho city would be the actual con
struction Item. The line as proposed
would connect with the Frnnkford ele
vated at Bridge street and Frankford ave
nue. It was announced definitely today that
report of the commission, almoin "d by
Mayor Smith to recommend the best type
of construction for the llroad street sub
way under City Hall, will not be com
pletcd until next week. Tho commission,
Director Webster, chairman, paid will
moet again on Monday nnd complete the
report at that time.
Tho report will probably bo made
public simultaneously with the revised
roport from Transit Dlroctor Twining
covering the entire transit plan. Under
the contract with tho Dunlap Printing
company the first .copies of tho direc
tor report will be completed late todav.
Tho Transit Department, however, will
not make them public until next week.
Tho commission of engineers nnd de
partment heads considering tho City Hall
changes met for a short conference this
morning, but It was found impossible to
complete the report -and an adjournment
until Monday was arranged nccordlnclv.
Until the report Is given to tho Mayor no
ateps will be taken to reach an agreement
with the Keystone State Constiuctlon
Company to make the changes proposed.
The Philadelphia Rapid Transit Com
pany, It was announced today, will In tho
near future establish another free transfer
point In West Philadelphia. It will be at
the 40th street station of tho Market

be given to all westbound passengers go

What Items will stand "paring" have

If the Mayor finally decides to take tha
floor In defense of the loan on Monday he

tho Inclusion of tho Item providing for
work heretofore done by tho Vnres. Tho
Mayor recently has had a number ot con
ferences on this subject, but has not mado
public what stand ho will Anally take.
That material changes will bo mado In

now certain. Pending tho publication of
the Twining transit plans, tho question of
transit will bo Ignored by both political
factions. It will probably bo taken up
by the mlddlo of next week at a special
session called for tho purpose. Special
sessions of both Councils and tho Finance
Commlttco will have to bo held during
the next two weeks if tho loan bill Is to
be whipped into shape for placing beforo

In tho event of further delay over the
loan a special election, nt a cost of ap
proximately $100,000. will havo to bo held.
If Mio loan Is placed before tho peoplo nt

The tragic death of Andrew Crowley,

James was drawn to tho prizering In

was going on until a sly hand had nearly
Withdrawn a purse containing $16,65 from
one of his trousers pockets. When at last
he awakened to the consciousness that he
was being robbed, he turned around and
grabbed Reuben Shaeff, 17 years old, of
633 Lombard street. Shaeff eluded him,
nnd started toward the entrance.
"He robbed me," yelled young Crowley,
and the place was in an uproar. "Fight
fans" jumped up from their seats nnd
started toward Shaeff. Policemen Smith
and McCUBter, of the Belgrade and Clear
field streets station, arrested Shaeff, and
hurried him out of the clubhouse. He
was taken to City Hall today for a hearing.
