Mayor Hlankenbtirg emphiitlcnlb call ed attention of Councils estcrday to the futility of allowing the costlj repair shop to remain unequipped at a dliect loss of the Investment and further loss to the community In unrepaired apparatus that Is essential to the public work and pro tection of the city. Ho made a direct appeal to Councils for an appropriation of $1M.C00 to pur chase new machine tools and other sup plies to make the shop the modem and efficient repair centre It was designed to be. The message was not even read at i length to Councils by the clerk, and ' with customary disregard of the Mayor s requests Councils sent It to committee to be pigeonholed. TMuctor Porter, of the Department of Public Safety, today denounced the dc Inv as Inexcusable and one by which Councils were "deliberately Jeopardizing lives and property In Philadelphia." The municipal repair machine shop cost J125,ii00. It was built to provide for re pairing the city's tire and water appa ratus. It Is a storehouse Instead shel tering disabled (Ire englnts and gather ing dust. The building stands, complete In every detail, but a shell, lacking the equipment It was built to house. The new shop would save Philadelphia thou sands of dollars each year, Director Por ter say. ri:qci:sts ignored. Official notlrtcatlon that money for ma chinery was necdcil has previously been eent to John P. Connelly, chairman of the Finance Committee of Councils. He did not answer the letters. Today there Is every prospect the tmildlng will re main a dusty storehouse. "The only course by which the build in? can be put to use Is the apportion ment of a part of the $100,000 set aside from the loan for the Sinking Tund," director Porter said today. "Unless the money comes from that source the build ing will stay Idle, useful only as a store house and repairs to fire apparatus will be delayed." Director Cooko expressed contempt when asked what ho thought of the de lay In equipping tho municipal machine shop. "I cannot understand why nny one should put up a building without equipping It," he said. "The delay Is in excusable." SHOP USED FOR STORAGE.

The municipal machine shop was com pleted July 1. Work was begun on It In October a year ago It was the In tention of Director Porter to provide a. machine shop to take the place of tho antiquated plant at 12th and Reed streets, which was trying lamely to keep up with tho work heaped upon It. This Idea was sufficiently appealing to wring an appropriation of $'.o,n00 from Councils and permission to use another of $75,10, which had been set aside for n new machine shop at 132S Race street. Efforts to obtain money for equipment have failed. They have not even won acknowledgment Meanwhile disabled fire engines are crowding the Moor of tho new machine shop, while the obso Jete machines in the old plant next door struggle to keep up. IDBAI WORKSHOP. The new building Is three stories high. 3t Is built of fireproof gray brick, nnd engineers who have seen It declare no Phop is better planned nor built- Just across the way is Moyamenslng Prison.

Inside, tho machine building looks as though it had been finished yesterday and workmen were coming any moment to install machinery and fittings. It mav look that way for a year. No work men will install machinery. Councils failed to provide any. The celling is two stories high, as in recond floor Is a gallery.

The Increase of ."2.0'12,62i in the assessed valuation ot Philadelphia's realty for 13'i over 1!H, as Indleuted In the cnmmunii n tion to City Controller Walton from tho Hoard of Revision of Taxes, yestotday. is almost identical with the advance In th. i realty assessment in 1011 over 1113. Although these last two InrrensRH lire larger than have been allowed by tho ultm-eunsc:"tttvc Hoard jf Revision o! Taxes In a number of years, they are ro garded by persons in touch with Phila delphia's realty development as being extremely low. The approximate 3?,ono.wo advance al lowed In the assessment figures by tho Revision Roard gives th city nn addi tional borrowing capacity of nboul .LSfO, 000 on the " per cent, basis allowed oy law. The increased revenue from taxes Is the comparatively small amount of about X.V0.IO0. The total estimated value of realty sub ject to taxation next year Is declared to bo il,5ft,5K.4. This ycur It was J1.0W.. 4T3.775. The estimate for noxt ear Is dlvidd Into the various classes, as city r.m. S1.&3.1U.32: suburban. t7l,iK2,7S. farm. &'Q,il3.230. Personal property, horses and cattle aro set at Jl.W.tOO. This year th-it assessment stood at 11.4l5,fflO. Independents regarded the low increase in realty assessment valuation allowed by the Organization-controlled Board of Revision of Taxes at the beginning of the Rlankenburg administration as an effort to curtail any expansion planned In the municipal departments by tho new ad. ministration. Fince that time tho incongruous effect of two Organization forces, apparently pulling against each other, has been man ifested by the Organization's C'ouncll rnanlc leaders passing the $1 tux rate, regardless of the probable expemos of the city, and the Organization's Roard of Revision endeavoring to keep down the realty assessment, from which tho reve nues of the city aro obtalnod under the low tax rate. All efforts of .Mayor Rlankenburg' to have modern methods of realty assess ment adopted by the Hoard of Revision of Taxes failed. The last attempt was blocked by the failure of John I Con nelly, Charles Soger and Harry J.

Tho trouble will probably tako the form of an attack upon tho laundry of the late Hi Lee. 5140 Hunters avenue. Within the laundry are ut least 1000 shlits. collars nnd other things, and without the laundry this morning there were fully half a hundred patrons, men, women and children, wondering how they were going to get their belongings. Hi Lee died last week, and it nppears that his executors made no provisions for the return of tho finished goods. Some of the Indignant patrons declared that they would break In and get their apparel, but a very dctormlnrd police man, who stands before the door nil day, says that they will not. Those who deposited their belongings with the late HI Leo are especially anxious because the establishment has been forced open and a number of things stolen. In this connection 17-year-old Roland Morris, of 1444 North Paxson street, was arrested today, and charged with robbing Lee's refrigerator. He was held under JI00 ball for a further hear ing. A committee was formed by a number of men this morning, and they will en deavor to obtain a Chinese Interpreter In Chinatown.

Another method of bringing about pain less childbirth which Is said by some physicians to have nil of the ndvaritages nnd nono of the disadvantages of the recently exploited German "twilight sleep" Is being widely discussed todny In Phila delphia's medical circles. It has been called the American twi light sleep, although Its sponsors claim that not sleep, but merely an Insensibility to pain Is Its chief chaiiicterlstlc. This Insensibility to pain Is accomplished by iidmlnistcilng to tho mother a mixture of o.5 go n and nitrous oxide, the latter being familiarly known to the layman as tho "laughing gas" of the dentists. Philadelphia physicians, however, aro Inclined to look with disfavor upon this or nny of the other so-called methods or painless childbirth. In discussing the matter. Dr. Wllmer Kruscn one of the most eminent obstetri cians In the city, said. "In the scltctlon of nny method of re lieving a woman of the pains of birth, snietj nrst must nlways he the chief con sideration. The first question that any I good obstetrician asks himself Is not how nui) this woman have her child with the least pain, but how may she have It with the least danger to herself and tho baby? "Ordinarily when n nhvslrlnn l nnor- ntlng he hns only one patient to consider, but when ho Is nttenrilnir n lilrtii hn always has two nnd sometimes three, If the case happens to bo one of twins. "Scopolamine and narcophlne, which have, been given such wldo publicity by the German obstetricians of Freiburg, w-iTe nn old story to America when nil tho recent fuss was made about them. They had been tried In maternity hospitals and discarded as being Impractical, "Nor Is there anything new about the use of nitrous oxido and oxygen. I have used It, and I expect every other phy slclnn hn also. AVhnt Is popularly known ob laughing gas Is, from a statistical standpoint, one of the snfest anesthetics employed, nnd by nn admixture of this nitrous oxide with oxygen nn Insensibility to pain can bo Induced, but, of course, If It Is used In tho case of childbirth the length of time required for a safe de livery will be g'reatly Increased. "An yet I do not think a universal pain less childbirth Is In sight. Nitrous oxide nnd oxygen might be used with good re sults In a hoypltnl. but It would be utterly Impractical In the home, for two large tanks, one for the laughing gns nnd one for tho owgen would be required." At tho Jefferson Medical College Dr. Ross V. Patterson, the sub dean, did not Miow much sympathy for anw of these plaliiles methods. "Ether, chloroform and nitrous oxide nre three of the most common forms of anesthesia, and they doubtless have all been used and are being used. Laugh ing ens Is not now to us. but Its use in relieving the plains of childbirth would undoubtedly prolong tho labor, and, theiofore, the danger of hemorrhage to the mother nnd asphyxia to tho child Is greatly Increased. "The recent magazine oxploltntlon of the twilight shop was ridiculous nnd proposteious. For Instance, a picture was shown portrnylng n mother and two chil dren, the one about S vonrs of age, born in the usual way and the other nbout 0, born under the twilight sleep. Tho latter was more robust nnd more healthv seem ingly than the older child, nnd the In ference was that the twilight sleep was re sponsible. I'ttcrly ridiculous' All of the odds would have been In favor of tho child born In the ordinary way. "Tho yecond child wns doubtless a m ire healthy one. And you know It's hard to kill a healthy baby. You can knock It nround, put It out on the window ledgo nnd do most anything with it, and still. If It Is normal, It will have such a wldo margin of health that It will doubtless survive. "Any method which needs such bolster ing up and such exploitation as the twi light sloop Is In a sorry state. I do not think that painless childbirth will over be universal." At the Jefferson Mnternlty Hospital they are not administering the nitrous oxido and oxygen to their patients. The Cumberland Street Hospital of nrooklvn, N. Y., Is trying It out, however, and Dr. Herbert C. Alten, nt a recent mooting of the Homeopathic Medical So ciety of New York, spoke In favor of It. CIVAL WAR VETERAN BURIED G. A. R.
