Is the medium through which these Juvenile communica tions have passed, and alio In turn has passed them along to the charitably In clined patrons of tho hospital, and It wo'uld be a hard-hearted person Indeed vtho could resist the appeals In these missives. There Is little Teddy Roosevelt Wick, for Instance, who has tuberculosis of tho eplne and who believes firmly In Santa ever slnco the old gentleman permitted him to pull his whiskers last jear to mako sure that they didn't come off. The xvhlaker episode was. In Teddy's estima tion tho final test. Here Is what ho writes: "Dear Santa Claus "Xl does not poem possible that I saw jpu last year, but It really Is a year since. Well, Santa, I would like to have a nice game, a pair of gloves, a hat, and a big black horse, that will suit me very much. Threo great cheers and a Merry Xmas. "Sincerely ypur friend, "Teddy Roosevelt Wick." Just what Teddy Is going to do with the hat and pair of gloves when, he gets them Is more than the nurses can figure out. Tho Lptscopal Hospital, too.

SOCIAL WORKERS FAVOR MUNICIPAL PAWNSHOP Great Good Accomplished In Other ,' Cities Needed Here. Philadelphia social workers are greatly Interested in the study of municipal loan shops. Tho report from Kansas City, JIq , where the city operates a. loan shop, tells of the vast; amount of good the In stftutionMiaa done the last year. lit the opinion of Roy S, Wallace, head ofv the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, and president of the Social Workers Club, the municipal loan shop Is worth a trial here as a means of protecting the people from excessive pe.wn, shop rates and the "preying of loan at eiiarKs. "i am greatly in favor of tne Here the city of Philadelphia could do a great; amount of good by establishing a municipal pawnshop. It would do a great deal In helping the poor and 'amelio rating conditions, particularly In the pres ent time of unemployment. It Is a well known fact that the p6or, who are com lielled to pawn whatever goods of value they may possess, often are subjected to srjat injustice by unscrupulous pawn brokers. The city should step (In and do away with this."

FAIR DRINK MIXERS WILL NOT DISPENSE BELLEVUE 'BRACERS' George C. Boldt to Continue Men as "Cocktail Artists," He Tells Grill - room Patrons Patrons of the .Bollevuo-Stratford grill need havo no fear that dainty blue-oyed maidens will be assigned to the artistic task of mixing their favorite cocktails, highballs, rlckeys or frappes. For several dnys the sole topic In Clover aley. tho grill, cafe and dining halls has been a report that George C. Boldt contemplated placing women, appro priately gowned, at the various drlnk mlxlng posts. Mr. Boldt Issued passports to all male employes, with the exception of bartenders. In the etIU of the Waldorf In Now York recently and It was re ported tho plan would also be carried out in tho Bellevue-Stratford. Then followed tho reports that even tho bardtenders In Mr. Boldt's hotel here would be replaced by women. "Horrors!" exclaimed cafe patrons. "A manicurist near tho grill may bo all right, but a woman bartender? Never!" ' As frequent imbibers were mobilizing to protest what they termed a "Bertha the Bartender" plan, Mr. Boldt came oer from New York In time to hear such remarks as: SHAVE BDFOIU3 A DRINK? "Huh! I suppose wo will have to re move our hate when we buy a elgar nnd ask permission to smoke. "I suppose we will have to get shaved before breakfast or do without an eye opener." J'It won't bo long before they advcrtlso a manicure with each pitcher Of brew." These weio only a few and mild ones at that. "Tho innovation at thi Walddrf." said Mr. Boldt "Is only an experiment, al though I expect It will be permanent. There were many contributing reasons for the change; reasons which, for thel most part, do not hold In Philadelphia. I do not have in mind any change hero. "The class 'of men, one gets for cashiers and Btand tenders In New York are not particularly desirable. They are almost Invariable transients, and stay nowhere a long time. For the same money I can get a woman as a permanent employe, who, Is more accurate, prompt, careful and trustworthy In every way. "The men who apply and hold similar positions In Philadelphia are a different class of men entirely. For the most part they own their homes, have families, and are thoroughly substantial. "Another very Important reason for tho change in New York. Is the fact that the class of -patrons of the bar Is different from that here. Many are extremely un desirable, and the presence of women In the bar may act as some means of re straint. PRBDICT8 BUSINESS RHVIVAIi. "How Is the hotol business at present7" Mr. Boldt was asked. "Conditions have been Indescribably bad." he replied, "but the Indications at present are for a re sumption of prosperity. The opening of the Stock Exchange Is a tremendous factor In reviving business conditions In all lines, but It will take some time for It to have Its full effect. "The hotel business reflects the general tone of commercial conditions better than anything I know. When people are pros perous they patronise hotels, My favorite means of sizing up the situation Is found In the porter's room. If I find It full of suitcases and traveling bags, business Is not good. That means that persons uru staying only a night or two and plan to get out as soon as possible. No hotel can exist on transients. A few months ago suitcases were the only form of baggage in the porter's room. There are more trunks now." t WILL MOVE CHURCH A MILE Pull-slred Edifice Will Journey From Olney to Logan, A full-sized church will travel a mile cross country and over a bridge from Olney to Logan.

The Boyn Seoul represents the inanly and the good element of our young eitttenship. He is honorable, loyal and trustworthy: "the honor of a Boy Stout" is rapidly becoming a household phrase. Daily he does his "good turn" unknown, Unnoticed, , Permanency is stamped on every feature of the organization which binds the Scouts together; it has become a vttalijaitor in the training of the Americamboy of today, the American citizen of tomorrow The move ment has grown, is growing and will continue to prow, but it should be fostered and its precepts furthered'in every possible way. Anything that is good should bet kept constantly before the public's eye. The Boy Scout movement is distinctly good. A! Badgo of ScrVlCj) for every Philadel phia Boy Scout Who participated In the recent JJO.000 campaign will be ready for presentation this week. It was. announced today at Boy Scout headquarters, In In dependence Hall. Seven hundred Boy Scouts' who collected the money will re ceive the tokens. Tho badge, which w'as designed at head quarters ond which Is purely a local In signia, Is circular and one Inch In diam eter. It Is of oxidised silver, with a transverse bar of green enamel bearing the words; BOY SCOUT CAMPAIGN. ' 1014. It will be worn on the sleeve. "The Boy Scouts who took part In the campaign made an Impression on Phila delphia that will not be forgotten for years," said Walter S. Cowing, Scout executive. "Nearly everywhere they were received with open arms and the moro In accessible places were caslty entered with the aid of American (lags. "A remarkable fact Is that, In sptte of GOAT GETS COPS' GOAT AND LAW CAN'T STOP IT Polico Havo "Billy" in Captivity, But What Can They BoP Enlightenment Is needed Immediately on the law pertaining V goats. Tho polico of the 10th and BUttomvood streets station have a mutinous Billy on their hands, and don't know what to do with It. Ho was arrested today by Po liceman Ambrose, assisted by Policemen Weckcsscr nnd Haltics and Sergeant Cavanaugh, on tho chaige of vagrancy and malicious mischief, "Billy" was wandering down Ninth street eating peanuts, oUl pants In front nt Rinnrl.lmnt ntnrAfl. And Christmas wreaths for dissert. When the"oat' Was' arrested, he was arguing with a Ninth street trolley car, much to the disgust of tho motormon. The four policemen got him Into the station house after a zigzag chase which covered fullv half a mile. , When "Billy" waB placed In a cell, the turnkey forgot to lock tlio door, so the goat went up stairs and stnrted to cat tho bed covers on the sleeping cops, for breakfast. He was then token before Magistrate Belchor. The Maglstrate,.an'd the police decided to send tho prisoner to City Hall. But when the City Hall police were called up they refused to receive "BlUy." Then the societies for the prevention of cruelty to animals werp communicated with and the police were emphatically told that they could not turn tho goat loose, especially In view of the high cost of living. Tho Magistrate Is In a-quandary. "Wo can't keep him here," ho said, "we can't send him to City Hall and we certainly cannot let him run wild on the street." "Billy" was glyen a normjil goatee break; fast while a further conference was" held. It Is 'probable that the City Solicitor will havo to be sought regarding the' dis posal of the peculiar prisoner. C. O. PRATT WINS LIBEL SUIT The charge of criminal libel made b C. O. Tratt against Thomas C. Kelly, aa the result of a dispute In Local No. 477 of the Trolleymen's Union, was brought to a Conclusion In Quarter Sessions Court today with the recording of Kelly's plea of nolle contendre- Judge Llttlo suspended sentence on Kelly, Kelly, It is alleged, was the author of a reply made to an article appearing In The Plain Dealer, the organ of the Pratt faction.

They asserted today that. In addition to the united strength of the members of the next House who are pledged to local option, Ambler would 'have tho solid voto of many county dele gations, which havo switched their alle giance from Richard J. Baldwin, tho Re publican "whip" of the House at tho last session, since the word was passed that Ambler Is the'Brumbaugh candidate. Word has reached Philadelphia that Allegheny County's Representatives, who met last Saturday to Indorse Bald win, but adjourned without doing so, are now in fa,vor of Ambler. The Dauphin County delegation has also been heard from, and Is also said to be solidly In favor of the local option candidate. Representative Baldwin today lelter ated his assertion that ho would not with draw as a candidate. He added that he would support the nominee of tho caucus. "I am still confident, however," ho added, "that I will be named. I have received many assurances of support I bellovo I will attract addltlonnl strength nnd that I will beat out Mr. Ambler.

Sheriff Acker told owners of houses In the tenement belt that he did not believe In evicting the pdor before Christinas. For years It has been nothing unusual in New York to see poverty-stricken fami lies evicted on Christmas morning for falling to pay their rent. George Russell, who) Is solicitor to Sheriff Acker, said: 'Tor years It has been an unwritten law not to evict tho poor on Christmas. The same rule will be enforced this ear in Philadelphia."

Mr. Gillespie has been a member of the llftad Commission of Allegheny County for seven yearn. For three years of that time ho has been Koad Commissioner, supervising tho construction of alt of the roads built In Allegheny County. He has frequently been called In by tho State as nn'wpert In proceedings Instituted by the Slnte Highway Department to purchase toll roads. "I believe that we cannot abolish toll roads too soon," Bald Mr. Gillespie, when he was In Philadelphia. "The people who travel over them pay nn enormous sum every icar In tolls. If this money were turned Into the Stato Treasury, the ronds of Pennsylvania could be put In good condition In a short time. "Tho abolition of toll roads and Im provement of dirt roads are tho principal things that need to be dono at once. Kvery year the Stato puts oft buying the toll roads that now form parts of State highways, they become moro valuable, and within a few ears It would cost much mure than It would cost to purchase them now.
