National Organiser for Trolley
Philadelphia. Feb. 21.?Police offi?
cials took the Initiative tonight in the
war being waged between the striking
earmen and the officials of the Phil?
adelphia Rapid Transit Company
when they arrested Clarence O.
Pratt, the national organiser of the
Amalgamated Association of Street
and Electric Railway Employees, on
a warrant charging him with "con?
spiring to incite to riot."
The warrant was served on Pratt
as he was leaving an automobile In

reached here late tonight and were
leaded on trolley cars at the Pennsyl?

mounted police escorted the cars and
prevented 'a threatened demonstrat?

which had assembled. Trouble Is
vxpected following the ns? of these
men on the cars tomorrow.
Reports vary as to the number of
oars In service today. The company
claimed that seven hundred were In
operation, but the pickets watching
all thej car barns reported at th
headquarters of the striking trolley
men that only 114 cars were run?
ning on all lines. They also reported
that nine crews of strike-breakers
who left the Prankford barns this
morning had deserted their care.
All cars were withdrawn from the
surface lines at ? o'clock tonight, the

Rioting in the very heart of the
business section of the city, the at?
tempted burning of another car and
many petty attacks by the strike
sympathisers led the police officials
to enlarge their force by every ex?
pedient and to consider the calling
out of the State militia. The arrest
of Leader Pratt caused a sensation
and resulted In renewed rumors of a
general sympathetic strike of all the
one hundred thousand union men in
The Raule of The Engines.
During it 10 It Is expected that
strenuous efforts will bi made to Im?
prove the slready great efficiency of
gas-engines. Although this form of
engine enjoyed a triumph In 1909
through the achievements of the
aeroplanes, yet it Is pointed out that
Rs old rival, the steam-engine, at the
same time greatly advanced in fuel
economy, achieving a thermal effic?
iency of 19 per cent., a figure hlthertJ
associated with gas rather than with
steam-engine tests. It has recently
been discovered that, owing to erron?
eous t'saumptlons, the gas engine has
not been credited with having ap?
proached as close to the theoretic lim?
it of thermal efficiency attainable by
the prevailing four-stroke cycle as it
really has approached. Thus It has
been shown that a gas-engine which
by the old standard of efficiency was
supposed to have attained 30 points
out of a possible 60, has really at?
tained SO out of a possible 35. This
leaves so little room for Improve?
ment that experimenters are turning
their attention to radical changes In
the method of operation which will
afford a larger margin for advance.
PROGRESS OF SOIL SURVEY.
Work In Clarendon County Under?
taken For Benefit of Tobacco Grow
Washington, Feb. 21.?A soil sur?
vey of Clarendon County, South Caro?
lina has been undertaken during the
preaent winter by fie Bureau of
Solls. U. S. Department of Agricul?
ture. Thla soil survey waa strongly
requested by the tobacco planters of
this section and was endorsed by the
State Department of Agriculture, and
several Representatives in Congress.
The production of bright tobacco
la the eaat-central portion of South
Carolina haa rapid'y increased du?
ring the past ten years, and a deter?
mination of the extent of the soils
upon which this grade of tobacco can
be produced to the beat advantage
has been urged upon the Bureau of
Soils from several localities within
the state. The fin? sandy loams of
the seaboard section of the State are
not only well eulted to the production
of the type of tob? ceo, but also the
production of Wtkbaf und early spring
truck crops for shipment to North?
Soil surveys have already beeri
made in the vicinity cf Charleston
and of Conway, South Carolina, as
well as of Darlington, Lee, Sumter
and a portion of Orangeburg coun?

also been made In the western and
west-central portion of the State, and

Columbia, Feb. 19.?The railroad
rate bill was killed In the Senate by
the rejection of the free conference
report by a vote of 13 to 10 tonight,
ending one of the most remarkable
pieces of leglalature work that h>
ever occurred In the General Assem?

a 2 1-2 cent rate, and for the taking
up of mileage on trains. Many
amendments were tagged to the bill
in the Senate, the moat important of

making possible for a contract to be

temperate life, strong physique and
his generally good condition. The,
favorable developments in his illness

Dr. J. W. Babcock was so encour?

"Mr. Tlllman has not lost any

JAPS KILLED RARE BIRDS.
Over $100,000 Worth Of Feathers
And Wings Seized In Wawali.
Washington, Feb. 22.?An esti?
mated value of $112,470 is placed by
Capt, W. V. E. Jacobs, of the revenue
cutter Thetis, on the bird's feathers
and wings seized by him in January
on the Hawaiian Island of Laysan
and Lisiansky, whore they had been,
gathered and scored by Japanese in
vio'ation of President Roosevelt's
proclamation designating the islands
as a reserve and breeding ground for
birds of plumage. Twenty-three
Japanese were arrested at the time
and have been turned over to the
United States Marshal at Honolulu
From statements made by Captain
Jacobs in a report to the Treasury
Department, the depredations had
been In progress since early last
year. A large quantity oil feathers
and wings were shipped away before
he arrived on the scene. In all, the
Captlan thinks, about 300,000 birds
were killed by the plumage hunters.
They Include the tern, the petrel and
The Japanese produced documents
purporting to give them the privilege
of gathering fertilizer and birds of
plumage, but when the officers from
the vessel landed and showed their
authority the offenders surrendered
without resistance. Copies of the

on Laysan and Lisiansky and on
other islands within the reserve.
THE PRESn>ENT A PARTISAN.
Mr. Taft Shows Himself to be n
Republican of Republicans.
Col. Henry Watterson writes in
The Louisville Courier-Journal: The
President has definitely shown his

mislead the voters and succeeding
abundantly, has kicked the platform
of imposture from under him and
taken I.Is stand flat-footed upon the

pose as a tariff reformer was at best
but clumsy. It could deceive only
those who wanted to be deceived and
suffice those only who sought a pre?

election. Hence the self-styled in?

GAVE -1HYPXOTIST" $6,000
Then Mrs. Lindsay, Of Bristol, Had
Trtn Men Arrested.
Bristol, Va? Feb. 22.?A case of
what is believed to have been hyp?
notic influence was revea'ed here to?
day, when John Fosgate, an elleged
hypnotist and clairvoyant 30 year*
old, and William Lewis, called a
confederate, were arrested upon
complaint of Mrs. Xannle Lindsay,
widow ol' Stuart F. Lindsay, who wea
clerk of the United States Court at
Abingdon, Va., for many years.
Mrs. Lindsay, being advised that
Fosgate and his confederate were
about to leave the city, made known
to the police she had mortgaged real
estate in the city for $6.000, which
amount she turned over in cash to
Fosga*e, with a gold watch, a dia?
mond ring and other Jewelry. Fos?
gate was arrested early today and
Lewis, who left the city in the early
morning, carrying cash and jewels,
was captured at a farmhouse near
Vance, Tenn., six miles south of the
Policeman Samuel Odell, learning
from the conductor of the early train
by telephoning to Johnson City that
Lewis had left the train at Vance,
hurried there. Covering Lewis with
a revolver, Odell took his grip and
found in it a tin box containing $3,
900 in currency and $3,500 in gold
coins of 5, 10 and 20 dollar denomi?
nations. In addition to the money
the box contained two gold watches
and pins and rings with diamonds,
valued at probably $1,500. Fosgate
advertised as "the most renowned
professor of hypnotic science In the
country." and his office was dally
crowded with society men and
When taken ? to the police head?
quarters today he frankly admitted
that he had secured $6,000 from Mrs.
Lindsay, but declared that she gave
It to him in accordance with a mar?
riage contract; that he was to have
been married to her, and that he
would be able to prove as much by
Mrs. Llnds-iy and her daughters. It
was learned today that Mrs. Lindsay
spent ten days In the effort to secure
the money she gave the clairvoyant
and succeeded by mortgaging valu?
able city property without allowing
her relatives to know anything about
the transaction. Mrs. Lindsay is a
daughter of the late Isaac C. Fow'er,
who years ago conducted a news?
paper in Bristol. The family is o.ie
of the. best known and most highly
connected In Southwestern Virginia.
Mrs. Lindsay has been so conservative
in the management of her business
affairs that her neighbors are greatly
surprised that she would have been
made the victim of such a scheme.
Fosgate claims to have come here
from Los Angeles, but has had offices.
