KENSINGTON PLANS
HAPPY CHRISTMAS
FOR UNFORTUNATES
Keepers of the "Lighthouse"
and Hospital Managers
Prepare to Provide Joy for
Their Wards.
Kensington Is making wholesale prep
arations for Christmas. The varied nc
tlvltlcB and organizations which radiate
from the "Lighthouse." 152 West Lehigh
axenue, have declared against a policy
of delay, nnd already Christmas greens
and goodies and toys are being carted In
against the coming of the big day.
These are Indeed busy times for Mr.
and Mrs Tl. Porter Bradford, keepers
of the Light Four hundred children look
to the Lighthouse for their Yulelldo fes
tivities and they are not to bo disap
pointed. Each youngster Under 12 years
of age will receive. In addition to a gift,
a half-pound box of candy ,ond on Christ
mas afternoon an old-fashioned Punch
and Judy show will bo given.
Nor havo tile, babes who are regular
: Nlaltora been overlooked. A tree has been
provided for them and each and every
kiddle will receive a stocking cramful of
Christmas wonders.
Around at St. Christopher's Hospital
for Children plans arc being rnado to
have trees In eight wards, so that no
patient wilt bo without his glimpso of
Christmas. IJvcry llttlo lacker who Is
able to hold a pencil In his hand has al
ready advised Santa nf his wishes In tho
matter of gifts.
Mls Anna T. Jeffries, general superin
tendent of tho hospital. 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. Is making
elaborate preparations. A custom thoro
Is tile singing of Christmas carols by the
nurses up and down the corridors at
G o'clock In the morning. In tho opinion
of tho patients no more thrilling awaken
ing on Christmas morning could possibly
be devised. Hero, also, there will bo sev
eral trees, together with a sumptuous
Christmas dinner to be served to all who
are not too 111 to partake of It.
KENSINGTON'S XMAS OHEEB
Baskets for 1300 Poor Families of
,. That Section.
Kensington's poor will participate In a
Christmas dinner which will be given
aivay In baskets by Mrs M. W. Ketchum.
who- has been christened tho "Santa
Claus Lady of Kensington." Mrs. Ketch
um, who lives at Frankford and Stella
avenues, said today she expects to glvo
away about 1200 baskets.
The bankets, which will contain cab
bage, potatoes, BUgar, chicken fruit, flour
and other eatables, will be distributed on
Christmas Eve at Stella and Frankford
avenues.
Tickets entitling persons to baskets
are being distributed today by exper
ienced Investigators who for the last week
have been investigating destitute cases
III the Kensington section.
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.
It Is the buUJlnff of the Olivet Reformed
CongregatlonKfth and Rockland streets.
Olney. Sktdways are ready today to roll
the edifice to It now home.
Following the recent call to the pastor
ate of the Rev. Maurice Samson, of Spring
City, Pa., a member of the congregation
donated e plot of ground at 10th and Itus
comb streets, Logan, for a new church
The trustees decided to move the old
frame church to the new site and to use
It as a chape) for the new building which
will be erected
The church will cross the Reading' Rail

Boy Scouts Stand For High Code of Honor
With this issue Ihe Evening Ledger inaugurates the Boy Seoul
Column. . .... . ,, n
The Evening Ledger takes thts step becauec-t believes tn the Boy
Scout, with his clean, healthy body and his code of honor. 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. Kelly's alleged libel consisted
of broad Intimations that Pratt had re
ceived 000 from Chicago street railway
Interests to use his Influence against the
union and that after obtaining the "money
he "double-crossed" the railway Interest.

the thousanUs of dollars which passed
through the hands of the boys and the
opportunity for losing money, not a penny
was lost, Thts waB determined by a
checking- system. The Impression that
the team captains received 'rake ofts' on
the mftney collected la an error. Every
cent of the 150,000 and more collected
goes direct to Scout work and not Into
the pockets of the men who collected
the money. All tho expenses of the cam

Is mtact."
Mr. Cowing said that additional local
service! badges will bo presented to Scouts
doing work, for tho relief of the Belgians
and the city's poor. The badges will be
similar to the campaign badges, with tho
exception of the lettering on tho crossbar-All

AMBLER'S FRIENDS PREDICT
EASY VICTORY FOR SPEAKER
Believe He Will Havo a Walkover in
House Caucus Baldwin Hopeful.
Charles A. Ambler, of Montgomery
County, will havo a walkover In the con
test for Speaker of the next House, ac
cording to his friends In Philadelphia
who launched his candidacy and Who are
now busy lining up tho local option vote
for him. 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. I do not be
hove the,aovernor-elect wllL,back Ambler
to tho exclusion of nny one'etai.-1 have
also had a-talk with Doctor Brumbaugh
and I am satisfied with what ho had to
say."
NO MORE EVICTIONS THIS YEAR
Landlords of tenements were notified
today by Sheriff A. Lincoln Acker that
dispossess proceedings against poor fami
lies will nbt be entertained until after
New Year's. 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."

conferred with Mr niUespfs
several times duilng tho campaign ahd
slnco Ihe election.
The nppolntment or Mr Gillespie is
generally considered to depend Upon thi
reappointment of Bobert McAfee h (Sec
retary of the Commonwealth Both of
these appointments. It Is said, wilt not go
to Allegheny. If McAfee Is reappointed,
which Is unlikely, Blgelow'e euccessof
will come from the eastern or central
section of the State. Mr Gillespie is
virtually elated for the highway comthls
slonershlp If Governor Brumbaugh turns
down the Penrosc-Ollvcr wing of the Re
publican party and appoints a successor
to McAfee, said political leaders today.
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. They could not all be bought
at once, Of course, as that would Involve
too largo a sum." :44tKfi
