Largest Convention of Asso

Its Sessions at the Bellcvue-Stratford.
Good Roads and Legislation in
the Best Interests of the In

Storage Battery Car's Evolu
tion. Enthusiastic dlsciifjl-ms of th future
of the elertrlo vehicle marked tho second
day's session of the fifth annual conven
tion of the Electric Vehicle Association
of Amerlci In the clover room of the
BclleVue-Stratford Hotel today.
At the opening of th session announce
ment was made that the convention wn
the largest that the acsoclation had evr
held, nearly !" membra nttendlnc.
"The electric car will absoluMv and
unquestionably be the automobile of the
future, both for pleasure nnd buslno."
declared Frank W. Smith, piestdent of
the association.
"The statement made by Doctor Ptcin
meU ha fret all of us to thinking, nnd I
believe that It Is the opinion of ne,trt
every man here that with the coming of
the manufacture of electric cars on the
large scale and the wider distribution
of charting stations, which must come,
the electric ehlcle will come into mli
prominence that It Is onlv a matter of
time when the elect rlcall.v prupelled auto
mobile will predominate
"The cloctilc vehicle hai nlrendv proved
Its eMclenn dependability. slmplleltv nnd

"The field fot c-xpnnslon l In the low-pri-ed
car, and i resent Indications a'e
that elllcient cars more nenrlv within the
reach of the average automobile owner
will be offered to the public "
T. I Jones. speaking on "A Wider Pl
Femination of Electric Vehicle Infoima
tlon," said that the reason why the eler
trlc automobile was not more genernllv
il.cd was the hUh price "The elntne
automobile of today." he said, "is con
sidered a luxury. Kishtv per cent of th
gnsoline cars cost less than fiwo where
as 55 per cent of the electrics cost over I
fCWO." I
In his addresi on "Educating the Pub-
lie to the Field and INe of Electric o
htcles," F. C. Henderschott said that th
pisent era of apparent inactivity In thi
field was du to the natural depression
that follows the introduction of a new
and novel business. Information concern
ing the actual work and capabilities of
the electric car wnen piop-rlv put be
fore the public will reawaken public in
terest nd prove a strong energetic stim
ulus for the Industry.
Legislation as a whole has been snt

Wagoner, chairman of the Committee on
I.eslslation. The members expressed their
gratification oxer the nction of fire mar

Owing to the possibility of sparks from

Vehicle Manufacture"
Women attending the convention toured
the suburbi and Fairmount Park In
electric automobiles and had luncheon at
thn Whltemarsh Valley Country Club.
A distinguished figure at the convention
today was Tred M. Kimball, manager of
the smoll motors department of the Gen
eral Electric Company Kimball bears
the reputation of having designed and
built the first storage-battery-drhen elec

"There Is a general Impression that the
electric vehicle Is necessarily one of com
paratively low speed," he said In re
ality It may be said that an electric
vehicle may be equipped to operate at a
speed substantially as high as a gasoline
car. In the present state of the art,
however, Jt Is Inadvisable to equip electric
vehicles for speeds much exceeding 18 or
15 miles an hour "
Thomas A. Edison, who was to attend
Wednesday's session, sent a telegram re

examine them and stepped from under
a tree to get more light.
He took several steps. perhap, when

Haunts Detectivo Bureau nnd Won't
Let Detectives Slumber.
Leaning back In a chair half nslccp,
Detective Mahoney was startled at City
Hall today when a stranger put his head
In the window of the Detective Bureau
nnd murmured something that sounded
like: "I.o-ok at the ru-ubo."
The voice came from the courtyard,
and as there nre no aeroplanes or 5Cep
pelclns scouting In thnt neighborhood,
Mn'noney leaped from the chair. De
tective Timlin, who was dozing nearby,
also looked startled. "Did you ?"
asked Mnhonoy. .
"Yes, 1 did," said Timlin.
While they were pondering over It a
ptrullor looking creature with a white
head and a bluo bedy fluttered In on the
window sill and blinked nt them.
"It's a bird," shouted Mahoney.
"Of course It Is," said Timlin.'
Mahoney then picked the visitor up
nnd found It to be a pigeon. Tho pigeon
rubbed Its head ngnlnst Mahoney's sleeve
and cooed Then It yawned nnd shook
lis feathers out to show that It was glad
to be there.
Attached to one of the bird's legs was
a tag marked "19 X " Iteallzlng that the
plseon was a cnrrler, Mahoney gave It
a drink and then liberated It. But It
flew back ngnln. This time Timlin set
tho pigeon free. Again It came back.
It had a number of queer characteris
tics When drinking, for Instance, tho
bird, which has been christened "Tlllle,"
can perch on the end of n pitcher and
drink without falling In. She Is also
mysterious In her movements, so the de
tectives have decided to make her n
member of the "aeroplane squad."
Jupiter Will Proceed to Richmond
After Unloading Here.
The now electrically driven collier Jupi
ter Is unloading n cargo of scrap Iron nt
the Philadelphia Navy Yard today. After
this she will proceed to Port Richmond
to take on a cargo of coal for the I'nlted
States fleet stationed In Mexican waters.
On the way the collier will stop at
Annapolis, where sho will be Inspected
bv the cadets of the Naval Academy and
Government cnglnceis from Washington.
The vessel has attracted attention as
the first ship driven by electric power In
the rnlted States navy. Although the
collier's trip from San Francisco, bv way
of the Panama Canal, Is her maiden
ojage, the olllccrs declare the Jupiter
has piovcd to be a success In every re
spect. After the passage of the Jupiter through
tho new canal, ofllcors of the collier ex
pressed tho opinion that the Culebra Cut
would either have to be widened or a
new cut made In order that vessels going
In opposite directions might not Interfere
with each other They declare vessels
of tho present type would be unahle to
pass In the cut, and this, they believe,
will develop congestion nt either end of
the canal,
Despondency Caused George Scheldt
to Seek to Endife.
Despondency over his failure to get
work since the outbreak of the European
war, according to the police, caused
Geore Scheldt, 51 years old, 1021 Moyn
menslng avenue, to attempt suicide by
leaping Into tho Delaware River at the
foot of Fitzwater street. He was rescued
by Chief Patrick Murphy, of the light
house tender Iris, who plunged Into the
water and pulled him out. after he had
refused to hold to a lift belt which Pa
trolman Sullivan threw to him.
Scheldt wns seen on the wharf at 9.30
o'clock yesterdav morning. When he
reached the edge ho stood for a minute
looking at the water benenth him and
then calmly walked off the edge of the
pier. A number of persons standing
nearby heard the splash. Patrolman Sul
livan dived In nnd managed to bring the
man to safety.
He was taken to the Pennsylvania Hos
pltal In an ambulance nnd It Is said he
will recover. When asked why he had"
tiled to end his life Scheldt replied that
he was thrown out of work at the begin
ning of the war and had not been able to
get anything to do since.
