Conductors Turn in 26,646
Cards Bearing Signatures
of Those Who Approve
CAMPAIGN ON ALL LINES
Hourly reports received from all sec
tions of tho city indicate that a lari
pcrccntngj of car riders favor the
straight five-cent faro plan, according
to announcement mode by officials of
the Philadelphia Rapid Transit Co. thin
At o clock, conductors nt the vari
ous barns turned in cdrds bearing sig
natures .of 20,040 riders who appruveu
the five-cent fare plan, with no tramt
fern or exchanges, according to an
nouncement made by company officials.
It was stated (that the P. R T.i carries
ODnroximntclv 1.500.000 nersons 'daily.
It was alsd announced that 'a large
j!umber:,'of the cards were signcdby
riders who would- be affected by Xle
Tho canvass of riders on every car
line in the city to learn their attitude
regarding a straight' five-cent fare was
started this morning.
Kaeu person entering a car was given
a card, which told of achievements of
the company nnd pointed out the ncces
sity for n straight five-cent fare with
no transfers or exchanges.
Passengers wcro asked to indorse the
straight-fare plan, sign the card and
return it to tho conductor. The list
of signers probably will be used as one
of the company's nrguments when con
sideration of the straight-fare rtlan Is
given nt a special meeting of Council
Conductors distributed the cords in
dustriously nnd reminded passengers
that by signing they were helping the
employes just as much ns the com
pany. Text of Appeal
The appeal follows:
To the Car -Rider:
Up to 1011 street-car strikes in Phil-,
adclpbla greatly disturbed the car-rider,
and cauRed enormous loss to the com'
Co-operation, under present Man
agement, has put a stop to all thin, and
every car-rider should be deeply inter
ested in helping to prevent a return to
bad street railway conditions, ns they
used to bo in Philadelphia, and still are
in other cities.
Instead of having strikes and inter
rupted car service during the war. co
operation, between the Men and Man
agement of P. R. T., secured such set
tled conditions as made it possible for
Philadelphia to get more than Its share
of war contracts. These contracts pro
vided plenty of employment at high
wages, made money plentiful and bene
fited everybody except P. II. T.
Pittsburgh is now permitted to charge
n 10c. fore, and this would have been
necessary here, except for the good
work of this Management and Its Men.
P. R. T. jvns refused permission to
make n general He. charge for trnnsfcrs
lait July, so that P. R. T. is growing
dally deeper in debt.
P. R. T. must havo more money now
immediately to pay Its wages and,
other Increased costs, nnd provide Jiet'
tcr servlco for the coming winter.

The autumn tang of the story books

Freshmen, In their bobbed caps,
swaggering sophomores, wise juniors
and dignified seniors chatted in little

the one thing "wonder what the team

Although the fray with tho little
eleven from Newark, Del., wns in Itself
not a matter of any great moment. Its
value as a contest was vastly enhanced
by the fact that It wns the opening
game of the 1020 season nnd tho first
time that most Eastern football fol
lowers would see an eleven using the
famous Heisman shift. Thousands hnve
wished to see the author of the great
gridiron glide and the system nnplled
to eleven men, ever since Pennsylvania
received that 41-0 lolt from Georgia

they avoid expressions of confidence for

Tho defeat in tho primaries was b se
vere blow to them. They entered their
candidate, Sklpstcad. in the Republican
primaries, nnd the situation greatly fa
vored them. The opposition to tho league
was badly divided. There were five Re
publican candidates fon the nomina
tion for governor besides tho league's,
Sklpstcad running in the Republican
primaries. Tho Republicans succeeded
In concentrating their vote chiefly upon
Preus. who beat Sklnstend for tho nom
ination by about 8000 votes. About
((D.uuu votes were divided among the
other four candldntcs. snmn of whlpli.
especially those cast for the Progressive

run their state ticket independently. No

The league has made some progress
in Minnesota in tho last two yenrs, but
not enough progress to afford Hh sup

only two candldntcs for govecrnor it:

strosity of Waste, Republican
By the Associated Press .'
Marlon, O., Sept. 25. An era jot
business stability and of businesslike
government was promised by Senator
Hnrdlng today in a front-porch speech
to a gnthering of several thousand coni
merclal travelers, who come fronj all
narts nf the country under the nusDlcet
of the Harding and Coolldge Traveling
Men's League. A large rnliacicipuia
delegation wns present. .
The business methods of thp Demo-.
crntlc administration, both in the con-1
duct of its own affairs and in its rela
tions to private enterprise, were' de
nounced by the Republican nominee as
"meddling and autocratic" to,' degree
threatening industrial chaos. He out
lined a policy of common couriscl In con
tract to "one-man judgment," ann
pledged himself to "on Idealism based
on such sense thnt it docs not treat the
nation's business with' suspicion nnd
Ambassadors of Education
In opening his address Senator
Harding said tbf- first traveling men of
all civilization become the ambassador
of educatinnnnd art, the bearers of
ideas, and the surveyors of the widened
fields of human relationships, and that
the traveling men of today maiuimu
their tfmtntwt relationship to the life
a njl' 'progress of America.
"I do not mean to address you espe
cially as commercial travelers," Sena
tor Hording said. "I would not dwell
upon criticism of the conditions brought
ubotit by nearly eight years of misimm
ngement of the United States If It wur
not necessary to take some account or

wisely bring America again to her main

Mrs. Griffin snld. was not really Mrs.
Dansey's son. and had been taken away
by Mrs. Radcllffc. some time before he
was reported missing.
Efforts to find Mrs. Rndcliffe proved
futile. The police of Hammonton place
little credence iu the report that the
Dansov boy is nllve. At the coroner's
inquest in the case Mrs. Dansey iden
tified the clothing of her missing child.
