"This Is tho busy season in the men's tailoring nnd dress nnd waist trades, and so far very little ot this work has been given out. All this Is Independent of tho nrmy of dock work ers and others Idle owing to the war." According to Welnsteln'B estimate, 600, 000 persons are Idle In this city. Krnest Bohm, secretary of the Central Federated Union, thought the estimate of 500,00 too high, but at the same time, he said, the number ot unemployed In the city was unprecedented.

EW HAVEN MEN' LOSE THEIR PLEA IN ABATEMENT Efforts of Nine Directors to Avoid Trial on Anti-trust Law Overruled in U. S. Court. NEW YOltK, Nov. 30. Efforts of nine directors of the New York. Now Haven and Hartford Itnllrood to escape trial on indictments charging them with violation of the Shermnn' anti-trust law were vig orously opposed today before Federal Judge Sessions on -arguments presented by Deputy Attorney General F. W. Swncker. Tho directors had entered a plea in abatement to the effect that the indict ments were Illegal. These directors are William Rockefeller, W. F. BroOker, WIN Ham Hklnncr, IJ. Newton Barney, Hubert W. Tnft, J. E. Elton. Frederick F. Brew ster, Oeorgo F. linker and Henry mc Harg. Late this afternoon Judge Session hand down a decision overruling the pleas. Counsel for the nine men had asked that the Indictments be auashed on the ground that the powers of the Grand Jury that indicted the men had expired before the indictments were handed down. The New Haven directors Involved In today'B proceedings wero represented by some of the foremost lawyers In the country, Including A, TJ. Pnrker, Illcliard V. I.lndnbury, John C. Spooner, J. II. Iloscncrnnz, W. W. Miller and Thomas Thachcr. After Mr. Swhckcr had presented tho Government's nrguments he was followed by Assistant United States District Attor ney Stevenson, who sppke briefly, uphold ing tho validity of tho Indictments. Mr. Thacher followed, presenting argu ments In behalf of the plea that the Indictments be squashed. His chief grounds were that the Indictments had been returned after the legal life of the Grand Jury had expired; that Alexander Gilchrist, clerk of tho court, was ab sent when the Fedornl Grand Jury in question was drawn, and that two out siders were in the Grand Jury room during the deliberation. At the tlmo the Grand Jury was drawn William Tallmnn was acting for Mr. Gilchrist, but Mr. Thacher argued that the law was very plain in such cases, and that It was a legal obligation that the regular clerk of court must be present READING FIGHTS APPEAL FROM LIABILITY RULING Railway Attorney Argues In Sup port of Decision Against Allen Plaintiffs. trnoM a RTArr coRsxsro.VDEMT WASHINGTON.

More than 100 of Philadelphia's unem ployedmen, women nnd children many of them Germans or of German descent, appealed to the home relief division ot tho Emergency Aid Committee, 1423 Wal nut street, today and asked for work. Tho women wero given sewing, but the men were referred to the Society for Organized Charities. Mothers with children In their arms, and men, stalwart sons of the Father land, with tears In their eyes, begged for a chance to earn a livelihood for their llttlo ones at home. Many had been thrown out of work because of sentiment tn this country, they said. "The hungry man asking for work," one man said, via shunned by many peo ple yho think at once that he Is addicted tu the use of liquor. I assure you somo of us here today are driven to despair by something eyen worse, than alcohol; namely, the blind racial hatred of some of your countrymen." Director Cooke announced today that the Emergency Aid Committee could have tho use of the triumphal arches on Broad street for the purpose ot advertising tho feto to be held In Horticultural Hall on December 14, IS and 10. Mrs. C. O. Harrison, chairman of the Belgian relief division of the committee, announced that her division had moved into the new headquarters In the Lincoln Building.
