Directors of boys' clubs viewed the prospect of the stadium with enthusiasm. B. F. Atkinson, national secretary of the Federated Boys' Clubs, said a mu .nlcjpal stadium would Inspire greater activity anion? boys' clubs and that he looked upon the proposed stadium as a boon to the city. ' Hurry Gear, superintendent of the Nice town Boys' Club, and Dr. J. H. Frlck. of the Morton Boys' Club, both declared themselves In favor of tho proposed stadium. "Such- a. place would do a great deal for the boy athletes In Philadelphia and throughout the State," said Mr. Gear. CHARITY BEQUEST INVALID "Will Hade Less Than Mouth Before ;.; Death of Testator. A rehArltable bequest of the bulk of the -'iilXit estate of John A, Mattlson, late" oti (729 Woodland avenue, to St. Cloirtent'i Church, Paschallvllle, Is inop. e rati ve because the will was made less than. a- month before the death of the testator., A clause In the will directs, however, that If (he'bequest should be Inoperative the nmguftt shall be equally divided be tweep.the Rev, Francis p.

"Director Taylor came before the peo ple of Frankford," said T. COmly Hunter, a prominent business man of 4S2I Lelper street, "and showed them with figures and facts that his plans were practicable. I do not think any person In Frahkford questions his sincerity of purpose and I believe his plan should have the right of way." Robert T. Corson, of 4R23 Frankford nvenue, who has always taksn an active pari in Frankrord progressive move ments said: "1 Indorse Director Tay lor's plans as It stands. I was at the meeting and I feel certain he has the best Interests of the people at heart. It la Very evident that no means business. There Is no question about It." Many other prominent residents spoke along the inrao line, and arrangements are now being made for nnothor mass meeting to convince Councils where the people of Frankford stand on the ques tion. KENSINGTON INDIGNANT, TOO. As Kensington will reap great benefits by the proposed high-speed lines, there was great Indignation shown there at the action taken by Common Councilman Cos tcllo. His plan was denounced as n BUbtor fugo of the gang by A. C. Keeloy, presi dent of the Kensington Board of Trado, and one of tho most prominent men of the district. Mr. Keeley bitterly ar ralgnod Costello for his bold attempt to "rallroAd such a baso pleco of work upon the public." "Sentiment throughout tho Northeast Is dead ngalnst this Coatelto scheme," Mr. Keeley said. "Ho was wrong when he said public sentiment le with him. He meant that Costelto and P. R. T. suntlment ts with him. Taylor, with n master mind, has handled a master propo sition for the best Interests of all, and we aro enthusiastically for him. It Is a forward movement, and when put In operation will show us the road to n greater Philadelphia. Coetello's plan Is an nttempt to bolster up the' P. R. T.. and he evidently has taken his authority irotn me J', it. t." MUST HAVE WHOLE PROGRAM. A. A. Frankol, a member of the Ken sington Board of Trade and the Mer chants' Association, said that nothing but the entire Taylor plan will satisfy tho residents of Kensington. It will mean the making of Kensington, ho said, and us It benefits this section so will It work for the benefit of Frankford. Theso two sections must have fair, straightforward legislation or nothing, he sold, and any attempt to further tho "schemes" of Mr. Costello will meet with a rebuff that will never bo forgotten by an "ungrateful, thieving ring." - "Mr. Costello cannot fool us with this ridiculous so-called plan," said Mr. Frankel. "His reasons are obvious. Such a plan as he has offered would double the value of his realty holdings. He might taboo the Idea of politics prompting him, but he has tho earmarks Ot the tran sit deal." "Better transit facilities are needed, and Lneodcd badly," said Dr. John Maler, a prominent druglst at 26H Kensington ave nue, "but they are needed comprehen sively." "Mr. Taylor was right when he called Costello a plan a betrayal of public trust. No more explanation Is necessary. The sentiment In favor of the Taylor plan will show the Jugglers In tho City Hall where to get off. We do not want the Interests of Mr. Costello and the P. R. T. alone; we also want the Interests of the public cared for." PUBLIC "GETTING WISE." "Tho old-time polltlclns of the Costello type can no longer throttle the public," said G. E. Williams, secretary of the Kensington Merchants' Association. "Wo will not stand for any such reactionary method as was offered to Councils by one gentleman whom we know as Mr. Cos tello. He pretends to be actuated by tl trulBtio motives, but those words don't ring true. A 'boy 10 years old could see that he has ulterior motives. Suspicion Is Invited In his own face. His plan la not for the Interests of Northeast Phila delphia or Frankford. but for the great I am Costello. We all stand unqualifiedly for Director Taylor's plan." Following out the statement of Mr. Williams. Frank Wolf, treasurer of the Kensington Merchants'- Association, call ed the Costello plan "a petty attempt to railroad bum legislation." For Coun cils to pass "such a reactionary method" would be "political suicide." ho said. Costello was denounced In -stinging terms by Harry Derbyshire, a prominent merchant at 2118 North Front street. He said Mr. Costello selected a most oppor tune time to "spring" his plan.' when ho Is about to leave the "field ot battle and go to Congress." "Has he the Interests of tho Northeast In mind? Well, not so you could notice It By the time the storm of public sen timent has died down Mr. Costello 'will wish he had never learned to writs auob things as P. R. T, resojutlons." Residents of other sections also de nounced the Costello bill, realising that the construction of the Frankford "L" as suggested by Costelto, would delay Indefinitely the other high-speed lines. Edward B. Martin, chairman of the Transportation Committee of the United Business Men's Association, said: "The association will not stand for such an outrageous proposition. To pass that ordinance would ruin the plan for the rapid transit development ot the city. The United Business Men's Assoclstlon favors the Taylor plan, for which we have worked so hard and will continue to work." Judging from sentiment of other mem bers of the association, It Is probable a speelal meeting of the organization will be called to voice Its protest against the CosteUo bill. CONNELLY CAUSES SURPRISE. Considerable surprise was caused ay the attitude of John P. Connelly, chair man of Councils' Finance Committee, and Charles Beger, chairman of Councils' Street Railway Committee. They Issued the following Joint statement: "We know nothing about the CostsIIo ordinance Introduced yesterday. Wa are opposed, however, to any ordinance at the present time that does not consider rapid transit on a broad basis and for the best Interests of all the people of Philadelphia. Although we have not ex. amlned tho Costello ordinance closely, It Btameintf Rings, $15.00 to $800 $7.50 te $200 fWVWlWf Lockets, S,0 a R. SM1TBI& BON MW&Mt&W 11. does not seem to us to meet the require hunts ot the situation or any part thereof." Connelly and Beger declared also they did not know anything about the Costello ordinance Until it had been presented, although It Is customary for Councllmeii before Introducing an ordinance to notify the chairman of tho committee which will handle the bill. A protest meeting has been called by employes of the League Island Navy Yard, hundreds of whom would suffer great Inconvenience and los of money If the Costello plans were to be adopted. NORTHWEST INDORSES TAYLOR'S TRANSIT PLAN Gives Enthusiastic Approval to His Plea for High-Speed System. Emphatic approval of the high-speed transit system recommended by Director Taylor for this city was given last night by residents of Mnnayunk, Wlasnhlckon nnd Roxborough, who attended an en thuslofltto mass-meeting at Woodvale Hall. Wlssahlrkon. To prove that they were with the Director In the fight which ha Is making for real rapid transit, nil present applauded the statement which h read relative to the ordlnnnco Intro duced by Common Councilman Peter 15. Costello. Thnt the people may know definitely where responsibility for delay In the tran sit projoct lies, Director Taylor re Iterated the assertion that the Immediate establishment of rapid transit facilities In tills city hlnaes solely upon prompt action by Councils. With Irrefutable statements regarding the results which would coma to the northwest and other sections of tho city, Mr, Taylor convinced his hearers that the extension of the nronosed lines to Wla- sahlckon and Roxborough would mark a new era In that neighborhood. The Di rector said In part: "Thirty-seven thousand people reside In your ward, which Is bounded on the northeast by Wlssahlckon avenue, on tho southwest by the Schuylkill River, on the southeast by School lane and on tho northwest by the City Line. "The residents of the extreme south easterly corner of your ward have the advantago of direct street railway serv ice to the centre of the city for one 5-cent fare. "The time required to travel by the existing, surface systom between the cen tre of the city and Wlssahlckon Station Is 40 minutes, and the presont facilities are Inadequate to handle the traffic. "Only 18.3 per cent tf the nrea of your wnrd lies within one-half mile of street railway lines which will carry you directly to the centre of the city. In this 142 per cent, of the area of your ward there are "6.P00 people. "The remainder of your ward Is served by an Independent railway lino, which lendd from the Manayunk Station over Ridge avenue to the City Line, and In order to reach the centre of the city you are compelled to ride on this independent line, with Its Infrequent nnd Inadequate service, to the Manayunk Station, there changing to the cars of the Philadelphia Rapid Transit Company. Thus It costs you two fares, or 10 cents, to reach the centre of tho city. "The only other wny by which you Qin reach tho centro of the city Is by way of the surface line and the steam railroad, at Increased coat. "The bulk of the population In your ward centres on the six-mile circle from City Hall. For that slx-mlle Journey you are required to pay 10 cents each way. "Your fellow citizens In Fox Chase are 10 miles from the City Hall. They travel for 5 cents each way. "Your lellow citizens In Chestnut Hill are nine miles from the City Hall. They travel for S cents each way. "Your district Is thus descrlmlnated ngalnst in the cost of travel, which to many Is prohibitive. "The assessed valuation ot real estate In the 21st Ward Is J19.0M.2SI, or S4171 per acre. "The assessed valuation of rent estate In your adjoining 22d Ward, which Is approximately the same distance from the tentro of the city, but which enjoys di rect street railway service to the centre of the city for 5 cents. Is $33,918,310, or 112,925 per acre. "This emphasizes your need for direct service to the centre of the city for ono 5-cent fare. "The assessed valuation of taxable real estate In the 46th Ward, which lies south of Market street and west of 45th street, )s 863,100,525, or 835.263 per acre, against your valuation of 34171 per acre. "This Illustrates the development which follows the construction of a high-speed line with surface feeders, and also illus trates the development which rapid tran sit will bring to the 21st Ward." CHRISTMAS MAIL PACKAGES PoBtofflce Department Issues Rules for Satisfactory Service. The "ten commandments" of the parcel post, to be observed during the Christmas season, were laid down to Phlladelphlans today by Postmaster John A. Thornton, who received them from Postmaster Gen eral Burleson. The "commandments," which will be posted In every postofflce In the country, are as follows; "Mall early. "Have parcels wrapped and addressed before appearing at postofnea windows. "Prepay all postage. "Write address plainly, giving street number of R. F. D. route, "Write your own name and address In upper left hand corner. "Write name within parcel In case of mutilation of wrapper, "Pack securely with strong paper and stout cord. "Mark breakable articles 'fragile.' "Mark food 'perishable.' 'If any writing accompanies parcel place it In separate envelope bearing 2 cent stamp," "SHOOTS UP" NEIGHBORHOOD Recent Arrival From West Causes Midnight Excitement, Revolver shots at midnight lent a flavor of the wild and wooly West to the neigh borhood of th and Vine streets. It was. Indeed, a denizen of the land ot alkali and cactus who caused the rumpus. He stood on the corner and took pot shot at nearby windows, which were all hastily closed. The street was cleared, and even trolley cars refused to pass the danger point. But Policeman Condon, of the 10th and Buttonwood tru station, heard the hots. He ran two squares, knocked the revolver from the man'a hand and grap pled with him. At the station house the man ld be was JJImer Reeyes, it years old, and that he had Just returned from Uie West He formerly lived In Kensington.

Penn Affairs Are Quiet Today. Andrew Ij. Smith, who was head coach at tho University of Pennsylvania for the four yearn previous to tho selection of George II. Brooke, today set at rest the rumor that he might bo a candidate to succeed Brooke, provided tho latter was not retained, by announcing that he had already signed a contract to coach Purdue this fall. Smith was reported In the Western papers a few weeks ago as having resigned at Purdue because of dimcultlcs with tho nthlotlo authorities there over football matters. That, how ever, has been patched up by tho resig nation of Purdue's formor nthletlc di rector, Nlcol, and Smith will return for his third year. Tho situation at Pennsylvania today was much quieter, both sides apparently wish ing to forget tho Incident by which tho players repudiated their coach. Inter views with sevoral ofllccra of tho Athletic Association and members of the board of directors today Indicate that thero will bo no special meeting of tho board to consider tho action of the team. Any action which may be taken will not come until nfter the annual organization meet ing of tho now board following tho an nual election, which Is set for Deccm bor 15. Thoro Is a great deal of discussion con cerning tho probable successor to T. Truxtun llaro as chairman of tho foot ball committee. Tho two men most prominently suggested are Dr. It. G. Torroy and Robert K. Lamberton, both members of tho board. Neither of theso men has expressed any opinion on tho action of tho team or their nttltuda to ward Brooke. Both nro regarded as con servative men who would make splendid chairmen and do whatever Is best for Pennsylvania football. Tho chances are that no olilclaU action will be ttaken- or statement made before tho lliat Jt tho year. . , . LUNK'S TWO WIVES FAIL TO DISTURB HIS PLACIDITY Man 21 Years Old Undisturbed When Held for Bigamy. The charge of bigamy did not seem to worry Conrad Lunk, 21 years old, of H17 North Orrlana street, a shoemaker, who was arraigned before Magistrate Kmely In his olucc, Front street and Sus quehanna avenue, this morning, accused of having selected two wives within tho short space of three months without hav ing gone through the formality of a di vorce. Both wives are living and will appear osalnst Lunk at a further hear ing next Saturday. Ho was held In 11200 ball. According to the police, Lunk, under tho name of Conrad Servus, married Lena Martin In this city last June. Three months later, the police say. he married Katlo Lunk, of 1737 North Eth street, In Morristown, Pa. Utterly Indifferent to the charge made against him. Lunk told the Magistrate that he had throe reasons for marrying Mrs. Katie Lunk. He married her, ho said, because she was very much In love with him and had threatened to commit suicide unless he did. Secondly, he had heard that she had saved a thousand dol lars. For his third reason Lunk said ho was slightly "Inebrious" when the marriage was performed. TODAY'S MAKItlAOE LICENSES Gutor Van d Voqrde, 4170 Paul St., and Angela nauwena, 4170 Paul t.

SENDS SINGER TO JAIL Disregard of President's Neutrality Views Costa Flannlgan His Freedom. Society's slumbors received a slight Jolt for Just a few minutes early this morning while William Clark, a night watchman, was dispersing, four would-bo songsters at 18th and Epruco, who were fain to sing "Tlppcrary," regardless of Presi dent Wilson's neutrality proclamation. And now one Thomas Flannlgan, 2221 -uonroo street, who had a misguided con ception of his constitutional rights, must spend 10 days In Jail, while three more men aro nursing unpleasant recollections of a run-In with the watchman. All was quiet In tho fashlonnble neigh borhood until 3 o'clock this morning, when tho night nlr was suddenly rent with n piercing wall. Society,, leaped from bed. Some ventured to tho windows, but be fore any could hurl boot-Jacks, hair brushes or old shoes, they discovered the noise did not orlglnato from' a cat. At the same moment Watchman Clark stepped cautiously nround tho corner, nnd seeing the four men with their faces pointed to the sky, emitting a noise that could easily have been mistaken for the cry; of. a houn' dawg looking at the moon, started to clean up. Three of the dis turbers were gone In no time, but Klan nlgan insisted upon remaining, and he was taken to the Jefferson Hospital a little later with a scalp wound. This morning he told Magistrate tinnnnv In the 15th and Locust streets station that nis constitutional rights had been vio lated. But when Watchman Clark argued that to sing "Tlpperary" In public Is decidedly a breach of neutrality, tho Magistrate sent Flannlgan to Jail to think It over.

Yaw ra kiviiL y SCORES IN DANGER WHEN BOMBFIRES TENEMENT HOUSE Rescuers Save Forty Families From Flames in Jersey City Second Outrage Within Twelve Hours. NEW TORK, Dee. 4. Scores of lives wefe Imperiled early today by a flro which Is believed to have been started by the explosion of a bomb placed In the hat factory at. 311 Third street, Jorsey City, The flames spread rapidly to two frame buildings In tho rear nnd damaged a tenement house adjoining whero 40 fam ilies were sleoplng. The Jorsey City synagogue was nlso badly damaged. Tho lire was discovered by a policeman, whoso attention was attracted by a vio lent explosion. Policemen nnd firemen rescued many Inmates' who were trapped In the Upper' floors of the tenomenta by ladders. This was the second bomb outrage within twelve hours. Homeward bound crowds were hurrying through Union Square a little after 6 o'clock last even ing as a bomb was exploded In front of tho old flvo-story building at 26 Union Square East. Soveral persons near the aceno of tho explosion wero knocked down. POLICE HAVE THEORY. A theory that the bomb was hurled-' from n moving automobile Is being In vestigated oy me ponce today. Inspector Egan, of the Bureau of Com bustibles, after getting down on his knees and sniffing at the point whero the bomb was oxploded, said he smelted chemicals, and expressed tho opinion that the ex plosion had been that of "an old-faih-lonod Italian chemical bomb, which every anarchist knows how to make." Such a bomb, however, must bo laid In place, and. If Ignited with a rope fuae, would glvo tho bomb placer a chance to get several blocks away before there was any explosion. DAMAGE FROM EXPLOSION. Tho explosion wrecked tho glass front ' of tho showroom of tho Faber-Wlnshlp Trunk Company, In front of whose place the bomb was placed; tho window of a restaurant next door nnd the sidewalk shbwcaso of a tailor shop two doors away, Tho building Is nn old stylo dwelling converted for commercial purposes, with a small area In front of It and lower than the sidewalk. The bomb had been placed In a corner of this area and close to the building. No explanation could bo found why the bomb was placed there.
