MRS. THOMAS TO CONTINUE
FIGHT FOR UNEMPLOYED
Bendy to Got $1,000,000 Loan for
City, She Says,
Mrs. J. D. Thomas, president of tho
Woman Suffrage Society of Philadelphia,
announced her Intention today to con
tinue her fight to find work for the un
employed of this city,
Sho duos not contemplate resigning
from the society because of tho lack of
official support given to her In her In
terview with Mayor Blankenburg on No
vember C, nor does tho accuse the execu
tive board of her organization of moral
weakness In making an ofllclal disavowal
of participation In tho nffali.
Mrs. Thomas said today:
"I undertook the nork alone and I as
sume the entire responsibility. I do not
wish tho society to suffer for anything
I do In tny efforts to provide employment
for the 86.000 men In this city who want
work, but who simply cannot find posi
tions. "1 have no Intention of discontinuing
my efforts. I hnvo only begun, and I
am going to do as much as one woman
When quMitloned upon her attitude to
ward the Mayor, after tho Interview of
last Friday, Mrs. Thomas replied'
' f slnccicly trust the Mayor will un
derstand my position and realize I did
not wish to offend him, but If ho is tied
bond and fodt bo ho cannot uno tho
money In the city treasury for this work
hn Miould force others to mnko It avail
able, or, falling In this, should point out
those responsible for this condition and
lot public opinion accomplish the work.
"If It should prove to be absolutely Im
possible for tho city to procure sulllclent
ruuds to begin public Improvements, I
would be willing to go to any wealthy
man In this city and ask him to lend
the city of Philadelphia $1,000,000 to begin
operations with, and 1 nm sure I could
name a dozen men who would bo wllllns
to do io If they were convinced that the
cltv could not supply tho funds Itself.
"One thing, above nil, Is slgnlllcant
that although there Is M.tOl.OOO available
for expenditure on public Improvements
In the city at prepent, the page of Direc
tor Cooke's recommendation to tho Mnyor
which provides for civic Improvement Is
blank There Is no city on the map where
such a condition exists, nnd that Is what
1 am lighting."

women attending. Of about CO present at

others members of tho various unions of
the crafts In which women aro engaged.
One of the amiable pastimes of the old
er "ichool of humorists was to picture tho
stenographers organized and chuckle ovor
the Imaginary predicament of a hurried
business man whose striking "stenog"
had him left "shorthanded" vlthout
shorthand. But It Isn't a Joko any long
er, as Miss Mnry Gnlvln, of Chicago,
nnd Miss Allco Bean, of New York, will
tell you; for they nre delcgntes to this
convention from tho Stenographers'
Unions pf those cities.
The women from tho West who nro
hero have very thoroughly upset tho hal
lowed traditions of tho Easterners, nnd

a desire to purchase outright tho com

BIDS ON SNOW CONTRACTS
RANGE FROM 40 TO 68 CENTS
Contracts to be Awarded Despite Ab
sence of Funds.
Ton contractors put In bids today for
removing snow nnd lco from tho city's
streets during November and December,
1914, nnd Jnnuaty and February and
March, 1915. Bids wcro submitted for
each of tho 19 snow districts Into which
the city Is divided. Prices ranged from
40 to 68 cents a cubic yard, depending
upon tho dlstaiKO the snow is to bo
hauled to tho sewer Inlets designated as
dumping places by tho Highway Bureau.
Proposals will be scheduled and tho con
tracts nvvanlcd Inter.
Among tho bidders were tho McXIchol
Paving and Construction Company, J.
and Joseph M. Mcllugh, Peoples Broth
ers, Inc., E. W. Anders, J. Marks Con
tracting Compnny, John Devlin, Jr., Rob
ert Peoples, Jr , Earl Walker, and Ma
guho & Worreii.
Lust year contracts wcro not awarded
for snow removal, but by nrrangement
of Chief Connell, of thn Highway Bureau,
contractors received from 75 to S9 cents
per lond of two cubic yards, according to
length of haul.
Present contracts will bo awarded, al
though no funds are available for Immc
dlato payment. Director Cooke has
urged tint appropriations for snow re
moval be made by Councils that the con
tractors need not flnnncc the work and
wait several months for payment. Such
action, the Director contends, would re
duce tho cost of tho snow removal.
PRESSURE DESTROYS PAIN
Experiments Hera Show Parts of
Body Can Be Made Senseless.
Startling experiments In pressarc anes
thesia weie performed today In tho Phila
delphia College of Osteopathy, 9th and
Pine streets, when Ira W Drew, pro
fessor of children's diseases, demonstrated
that ho could render any party of the
body Insensible to pain by pressure ap
plied to knuckles of the hand.
Professor Drew made 12 experiments
upon members of his classes. Pressure
was applied by hand to the knuckles of
tho students for a period of one minute.
When the pressure was removed the
"zones" of the body controlled by the
knuckles wero cut with a knife, and In
each lnstnnce tho only sensation reported
was that of tickling, although those parts
of the body not controlled wero extremely
sensitive to tho Instruments It was
found the anesthesia resulting from this
simple pressure upon tho fingers had a
duration of from 33 to 35 minutes.
Tho discovery of pressure anesthesia,
or zon therapy, as It Is sometimes called,
was mado by Doctor Fitzgerald, of the
St Agnes Hospital, In Hartford, Conn.
Although he has carried on extcnslvo ex
periments In his laboratory, Doctor Fitz
gerald has been unable to account for the
strange effect produced.
Tho experiments mado this morning by
Professor Drew aro the first of the kind
performed In this city, and, although no
ljght was thrown upon tho theory of the
operation. It was shown decisively that
the zones of the body may be controlled
by this means.

CITY STOCKYARD IS
Strict Ten-day Quarantine
Imposed When Lancaster
Cattle Shipment Reveals
Foot and Mouth Affection.
The entlro plant of the West Philadel
phia stockyards was quarantined this
morning and completely suspended
operations, following the discovery of
tho foot and mouth disease among a
shipment of cattle from Lancaster
County, received at tho stockards yes
terday. Dr. C. A. SchnuDer, head of the United
States Bureau of Animal Industry, placed
a strict quarantine on shipments from
nnd to tho yards for ten dajs, Only
these cattle now In transit will be al
lowed to enter the yards and no cattle
will bo permitted to leave.
The Lancaster shipment consisted of
POO head, Inspected nnd passed by tho
authorities at Lancaster.
Six hours after they had been admitted
to tho West Philadelphia yards In
spectors found tho disease was present
In a small number of the cattle.
These wero Immediately destroyed. It
Is supposed tho affected animals de
veloped tho dlseaso en route.
Another outbrcad of tho ailment was
discovered nmctae tho quarantined West
ern hogs, 34 of which wero destroyed
several dajs ago. Those suffering from
tho newly dlacovorcd outbrcnk were de
stroyed with the Infected cattle.
TAKING NO CHANCES.
"Wo aro taking no chances on the
possibility of a general outbreak among
tho 2500 cattle now In tho yards," said
Doctor Schauflcr today. "The ntlro plant
will bo disinfected anow, and nnothor
general cleaning will begin today. A
corps of veterinarians Is examining tho
cattlo constantly, and If an animal Is
suspected It will bo destroyed at once."
Until tho outbreak among tho Western
hogs nnd the Lancaster cattle, tho West
Philadelphia stockyards had a clean
record, due to stringent measures adopt
ed by Doctor Schaufler.
Intrastate shipments aro now pro
hibited, to save the cattlo of counties
thus far free of the disease from con
tamination by shipments from counties
where tho ailment has been discovered.
Thirteen States are now under Tcderal
llvo stock quarantine because of foot nnd
mouth disease discovered In herds of cat
tle. Throughout tho country organized

LIKES HIS ROLE
OF SANTA CLAUS
Captain Henrichsen, of the
Relief Ship, Anxious to
Start With Cargo of Sup
plies for Belgians.
Captain Wolf Henrichsen, Sanla Claus
of the relief ship Thclma, likes his job.
Tho Idea of piloting tho ship which will
savo thousands of Belgian non-com-batants
from starvation pleases him.
Ho Is anxious to be off at the task as
soon ns possible.
Loading tho Bupplles Is proceeding
rapidly, but Captain Henrichsen paces
up and down his cabin when ho Is not
out on deck watching tho stevedorca at
In addition to other duties theso days
he Is entertaining visitors. Tho ship has
been thrown open to public Inspection
Tho Thclma In a freighter and means of
entry aro not so convenient as you find
on a liner. The lndtler, which Is really
a set of steps set at right angles with
tho ship's plates, was used many times
today. Captain Henrichsen leaned
against tho coinpanlonway leading to Ills
cabin and greeted visitors as they camo
over tho side. Tho reception was In
formal. As he talked ho helped amuse little
Olgn Barston, the first mnto's 6-year-old
daughter, who wore bluo hnlr ribbons on
a pair of stout jellow braids and npoke
Norwegian fluently, despite the lack of
three first teeth. Olga Bnrston and her
llttlo black puppy Interested six small
girls who came from tho Burd School,
63d and Market streets, almost as much
as tho ship did.
Tho six llttlo girls wcro In charge of
Miss E. M.'Durnall, who brought them
from tho Burd school to see the ship.
When this party of visitors appeared
Olga developed a sudden shyness and
went back Into a dark corner of the com
panlonway. A mlnuto boforo sho had
been pinching the captain's nose.
Tho six llttlo American girls wero im
mediately Interested. Olga was Induced
to come forward to meet them. Sho
twisted her jellow braids while tho cap
tain explained she couldn't speak English.
After thnt tho visitors left for tho
Lincoln Building to leave contributions
for tho relief ship.
Captain Henrichsen speaks good Eng
lish. "I think It's a flno thing for Amer
icans to help those poor Belgians," ho
said. "I am lucky my country Isn't
In tho war. too. No. I never captained
a Christmas ship before; nor even a re
lief ship This Is the first ono. I hope
we will have good weather. You can't
tell about the weather this time of year."
Captain Henrichsen Is comparatively
young man, not much over 33, ono
would think. The relief ship Santa Claus
has Ideas about what should go In the
newspapers. His age Is ono of the
things to keep out. "You don't want
trl put that In," ho protested "What
dlffcrenco docs It mnko how old I am?"
He was born in Wuusberg. Norway, and
slnco ho was 15 he has sailed the seas.
Once he was shipwrecked.
"Yes. once," he replied to the question.
"Why It was on nn Island they called "
Then he remembeted he was talking for
publication. "On nn island," ha ended.
"You wouldn't want to put that In, would
Captain Henrichsen Is reading about
the relief ship. "They put In all kinds
of things nbout it," ho said, to Bhow
why ho hesitated to tell tho name of the
Island.' "Why there was lots of stuff
nbout Vikings and nil that." He smiled
pleasantly when It was explained that
publicity, even If Vikings were men
tioned, would help rouse Interest. "I
know, I know," he ngreed, but the Island's
name remained a mystery.
In Norway Captain Henrichsen has
two little girls. "About like her." he
said, pointing to Olga, who stood by his
sldo twisting her braids.
Charles N. Richards, keeper of sta
tionery In the United States Senate and
Government attache longest In the Sen

ship today. He Is In Philadelphia writ
ing his memoirs for a magazine. Mr
Richards, though 73 years old, climbed
oer winches nnd tackles on the Tholma's
decks as lightly as the crew. He asked
the way to the receiving station in the

'JIM' LARKIN, MOST .
IN LABOR ASSEMBLY
Famous Irish Agitator Vigow
ous Opponent of War and
Scornful of Homo Rutri
One of the moat Interesting, if not Via
most Interesting visitor at tho convsotton
of the American Federation of Laborv, U
James, or as he Is better known through
out tho world, "Jim" Larklru Larkin
Is the Irish labor leader who was put
lu jail by the British Govemmont bowo
tlmo ago for leading a big strike. Al
together ho has had against Iilm prison
sentences amounting to somo 15 years of
hard labor. Ho has only served two
jears, and according to him, has never
been In jail for a period longer than thres
months nnd 14 days. It was only after
tho declaration of war between England
and Germany that Ireland becamo too
hot a place for Larkin to live in. At
least tho Government made it too hot
for him by evincing a desire to shoot
him for his anti-war agitation. Ho wan
so actlvo and pronounced In his anti
war propoganda that, according to his
statement, the Government could not get
ten recruits' n day In the counties of
Ulster, Munstcr nnd Connaught.
In appenranco Larkin looks llko a.
"rebel" of Robert Emmett's days. He Is
tall, massive, yet wiry. His features aro
sharp and his nose, somewhat long,
seems to breath deflanco through Its
nostrils to tho entire world. Ills eyes,
blue, deep and penetrating, shine with a.
brilliant light, tho light that must have
shono In tho eyes of Danton when ho
called the peasantry of Franco Io rebellion.
HI lhair, nn Iron gray, betrays long suf
fering and struggle. With .a big, black
slouch hat upon his head ho darts to and
fro llko a great eagle, embracing every
thing, leaving nothing unnoticed. Isarklii
arrived In New York last Monday on tho
Pi. Louis. He will remain hero until
after tho war and will tour tho country.
"Ireland Is now in a very miserable
state," said Larkin, today. "Tho future,
howover, is not altogether without
AGAINST THE WAR.
"There Is a powerful antt-war sentiment
lu Ireland which has frustrated tha Gov
ernment's recruiting plans. Tho Irish
Trade Union Congress and Labor party
have by a definite proclamation decided
not to tako part lu the war. Our po
sition on war Is the same as that ot
labor tho world over. Wo have no in
terest iu tills war and wo are not going;
to fight. Tho anti-war manifesto was
signed by all tho leaders of tho Irish
Trade Union Congress nnd Labor party,
representing moro than 73,000 men. AU
tho city trades councils, with tho excep
tion of that lu Belfast, agreed with tho
"The employers in Ireland have been
most cruel and ruthless In their attempts
to forco the workers to Join the arms
Though wo havo no formal conscription
lu Ireland, Scotland or Wales, employer!,
under the influence of the War Office,
havo compelled their employes to enlist
by lef using them work. Thousands ot
men on the railways, In the textllo fac
tories nnd In all Industries generally havo
thus been deprived of their positioni.
In Irclund and In England there Is no
nnthuslasm for tho war. The miners,
moro thnn a million lu number, are op
posed to, tho war. Ramsay McDonald aha
Klr Ifrd!e, leaderx tit tho Independent
Labor party, aro addressing trotnendoiia
meetings all over England, Scotland and
Wales, urging the people not to go to
war. They point out that tho war was
brought about through secret diplomacy
and the people wei uover taken Intt
confidence on matter nf foreign relations.
"All expressions of public opinion nta
censored by the Government. Four promi
nent labo'r leaders are now in jail for
daring to &lgn the anti-war manifesto
Three postmasters In Cork were arrested
for agitating against the war. They aro
Patrick Haggerty, Peter Haggerty and
J. J. Walsh. Peter Haggerty haB been
sentenced to ono year penal servitude.
"HOME RULE" A MYTH.
On tho question of Homo Rule, Larkin
very sarcastically remarked that there
Is no Home Rulo bill. There Is a Gov
ernment of Ireland bill, which will como
Into force next year and which Is Eubject
to nn amendment bill, tho context of
which has nover been published.
"Tho bill In Itself Is nn nboitlon." said
Larkin. It gives no economic- power
whatever to the people of Ireland. It Is
essentially undemocratic. Its only pur
pose seems to bo to create a mutual ad
miration society between the ruling class
lu Dublin and that in Westminster. Tho
people In the cities of Ireland, who com
prise the majority of Ireland's population,
nre given only 31 members In tho Irish
Parliament created by the bill. The rural
districts, where the minority Jives, 1. e.,
tho land owners, are given 123 members.
Trinity University, home of reaction In
Ireland, Is given two members for a
population of 600. The areas of rep
resentation are so marked out that no
democratic expression of the popular will
Is possible. The upper house Is appointed
by the Lord-Lieutenant, who Io appointed
by the Klnr."
Larkin will speak in Philadelphia, on
November 25 under the auspices of the
United Jrlsh Societies, The place of (he
meeting has not yet been decided upon.
