Prisoners Kneeled in Dark on Christmas. Who wilt Blva a bag of cement worth to cent to the prisoners of the Eastern State Penitentiary and hetp mates It possible for them to construct a build In where they may meet for church services and other purposes? The convicts celebrated this Christmas! In a small, dim and depressing- loft over one of the prison storage building. They want a better holiday next year, and they hare told Warden Itobert J. Mc Kenty they will construct a modern con crelo meeting hall, capable of seating mora than the 1101 Inmate of the peniten tiary, If the material, costing about fSOOO, I available. "It's an outrage that we haven't some place where the men can get together for ft good time onca In a while," said War den MoKenty today. "It spoiled my Christmas to see them waiting In line to get Into that dark, disreputable loft to do their worshiping. X wish tome of the men who are going to the Legislature could have been there and seen the con vict kneeling on the dusty rough board In the dark. They would get me an ap propriation for a building then. 'The loft In question Is so. full when WO convicts are In It that movement Is almost impossible," he said. "It Is reached by a narrow stairway, up which the prisoner have to (lie one at a time. It would not be tolerated by law a a meeting place for any but convicts." Warden McKenty was told about ths presentation yesterday by William A. Brady of Owen Davis' new play "Sin ners" before the prisoners of the Sing Hint. N. T.. Jail. "Yes, I know about that, and the In mates here learned about It, too, and they're very envious," he eald. "We have had offer from the best theatrical com panies that ever visited Philadelphia. They have agreed time and again to come out hero and give performances, but we have had to decline overy time because we have no place for such production." Bequests for an appropriation for a new building have been made ori numerous oc casions by Warden McKenty ttnd the Board of Inspectors. They havo always been denied. The prison Is, officially, con' ducted on the principle of separate con finement, and under this rule the prison ers are not allowed to congregate for any v purpose. I have managed to avoid tms antique o. system," said the warden, "and the men mingle togethor In so rar as is possmie. n But this old loglo la brought up wnenever "j church or a hall Is suggested. Imagine, 11 It 1 considered Inadvisable to allow the "0". vmen to pray together.. Each man must ot' pray In his cell alone. What kind oc religious progress can be made under that system? Where would 'Billy' Sunday bo If the law obtained outside the prison I" Warden MoKenty pointed out what ap peared to be theJAnest and most modem building of all the prison structures. "The rntn built that alone," he said, "and prison architects from every sec tion of the country have come here and copied It. If we can build that we can build a hall. All we need Is the ma terial." -r- CALLEtJ TO CHURCH HERE i lfirBt Congregational of Oonnantowa Wants the Rev. Mr. Pyle. J 7 1. T v- Heaekiah I.

SOCIAL WORKERS IN FAVOR OF NEW DETENTION HOUSE Indorse Grand Jury's Rec ommendation That Build ing for Juveniles Be Lo cated on Outskirts. Social workers today Indorsed the De cember Grand' Jury's recommendation that the proposed new house of detention be erected on the outskirts of the city, where "child prisoners" can have out door recreation'. In presenting their report members of the Grand Jury touched upon the condi tion of children of the noor who live In Philadelphia's dirty tenements. The Jury said clean and natural surroundings would help a great deal In reforming Juvenile offenders, who, according to statistics, make their first step Into criminal 11 fo through bad surroundings. "Many of the youngsters, raised In the tenement districts by vicious or Incom petent parents, nro Incorrigible usually temporarily so, because they have not been able to satisfy the element of play In clean surroundings," says the Jury's report. Members of the Philadelphia Housing Commission expressed themselves in fa vor of having the proposed house of de tention located In the outskirts of the eitv. Social workers attached to settlements In South Philadelphia, who have been ap pealing In vain to members vof Councils' Finance Committee to appropriate funds for the enforcement of the new housing laws, also believe a house of detention in the country would help to reform the juvenile offender. Slnco the Grand Jury has become In terested In the welfare of children who are prisoners, it was suggested by many persons that the body also should en lighten Itself on the present tenement house problem. This question was Ignored completely by Councils In the city appropriations for the year of IMS. ' Appropriation of 1213,710 was asked to maintain the new Division of Housing and Sanitation created by act of the Legislature. This not was signed by Governor Tener. Among those who are opposed to the granting of appropriations are the Inter national Tenement Owners' Association and Select Councilman Charles Scger, of the 7th Ward, chairman of the Subcom mittee on Finance of Councils.-' Some conditions at the House of De tention, located at Arch and 22d streets, are praised highly "by ths Grand Jury, but the ventilation In that institution Is described as being very bod and un healthful to children who are quartered there The bad ventilation, according to the Grand Jury, Is due to the fact that It has beett necesaary to cut up many of the rooms Into smaller ones.

RESURRECTION OF SQUARE-RIGGERS RECALLS OLD DAYS Prospective Departure of Two Vessels Reinaugu- rates Glory of Stars and Stripes on Seven Seas. Glorious days, when the American flag was supreme upon the seven seas, will be recalled In a few days when two big American square-rigged sailing vessels will unfurl their clouds of canvas at this pert and sail for Japan, with cargoes of petroleum In wooden Inclosed tin cases. Tears ago this trade was the most thriving of the port. Hundreds of wind jammers, filled with all of the romance of the sea, Inspirations to writers of sea tales, came to and left this port each week. Today only a few of these vessels remain, and the number under the ritara and Stripes can be counted on one's (bi tiers. Two of tho latter are the Dlffiko and John jEna, now loading here for their voyages to the Far East. The Blrlgo Is one of the famous ves sels of tho Bewail fleet of steel, Bath built square-riggers. With her sister ships, the Arthur Sewatl, Edward Sewall, William P. Fryo and Ersklne M. PHelps. she has written sea history. The Arthur Sewall, which left here sev eral years ago, has never been heard from since'. It Is rumored In shipping circles that the other vesoels, now bound for England from the Pacific coast with grain, are to load oil here for the land of the Mikado. The revival of the trade Is due to the scarcity of steamships to meet the urgent demand of business. The war has removed about 5.000.0M tons of ships from the seas. They have either been in terned, sunk or commandeered. The sailing vessels are getting high freights for the transportation of the oil. It is Bald that the price paid each vessel leav ing here will be about J35.0CO. It is es timated vthat the run will require from 60 to 100 days. The ships will return in ballast. This latter fact recalls to veteran sea followers of the port, that there la a wharf on the Camden side of the Dela ware Diver, above Kalghn'a Point, made up entirely of earth from all parts of the globe. This dirt was carried there In the old days as ballast and discharged upon arrival Today the vessels carry water ballast which can readily be pumped into the river, Romance surrounds the John Ena. She was named after a Hawaiian Chin ese and was built in dlasgow She was admlted to American registry when the United States annexed the "pearl islands of the Pacific." Three years ago Captain Olsen, master of the vessel, married a pretty Qermantown girl In this olty. She sailed with him on the following day for a honeymoon voyage, whlob. lasted one year and extended to Hlto. Hawaii and back, via the treacherous reaches of Cape Horn. fins accompanies her husband on all of his trips and will make the run to Japan. Mrs. Olsen knows as much about navigation today as her husband. A year ago she saved the ship and all hands on board by her prompt action in seising the wheel which a frightened seaman had deserted In a storm. Jack; London and bis wife made a voy age 'round the Horn on the Dirigto sev eral years ago During the run to San SVancisco he completed his story, "The Valley of the Moon." For' many years this decadent type of clipper ship PilJ between this port and Hawaii In the ska.r trade. The opening of the Panama Canal doomed this busi ness, as It was not possible for them to compete against steamships using the great waterway. Because of the area of ealms on the western approaches to the canal the towage fees beoatne prohibitory and it was believed that the career of these stately square-riggers was at an I erm. ?ui ine war naa insuueo new at lata them an4 a bright preepeet U lu store far b)r owr, masters and crews JuriHg the next few years.

SOUTH BETHLEHEM, Pa., Dec. 28 There is absolutely no truth to the re port that attempts havo been made to blow up certain departments of the Beth lehem Steel Company's armor and pro jectile plants by spies, according to the local police. Steel company officials also deny the rumors. Humors have prevailed hero since the beginning of tho European war about splca Infesting the plant and bombs being mscoverod, but each was found to do groundless. On the suggestion of tho United States Government tho Bteel company about six weeks ago added additional police to Its force, which has guarded the plant for years. The Government of this country has ttar contracts' In process of manu facture here, as have several foreign na tions, and United Stntcs officials do not want Inspectors of other countries to ob tain Information regarding patents on war material, hence tho reinforced police order. t Vessels Collide Off Cape Cod PBOVINCETOWN, Mass..

How Philadelphia may continue the $1 tax rate and at the same time meet the increased expenses that will be caused by Interest and sinking fund charges of the millions that are to be borrowed Is n problem which will be considered by a Joint committee of Councils. Tho joint committee is headed by John P. Connolly, the chairman of the Finance Committee of Councils end chief exponent of a continued Jl tax rate. It was named to consider legis lation affecting Philadelphia that will be Introduced at the coming session of the Legislature. The feasibility ot amending the "pay-as- ou-go" act of 1370 and adding about $1,000,000 to the annual revenue of the city by permitting the City Controller to cstlmato closer the city's revenues Is being considered. At present the 11,000,000 by. which the annual revenue Is under estimated goes Into the revenues of the succeeding year as a surplus. Connelly has announced further that by elimination of examptlons of per sonal property valued at J250.O0O.00O from taxation and by greater vigilance In as sessments, the revenue from personal property taxes can be Increased to $5,000,000. In 1914 there was $530,000,000 of personal property taxed, yielding $2,120,000. range the desk. I will be in in a moment." "Yes. sahib." When Hassam Alt finished his note he destroyed the blotter and the sheets of paper which had underlain that upon which lie had written. This note he gave to the servant. He felt no worry about this not. The man who received It would Immediately destroy It. To keep It and use It In the aim of blackmail would only tighten the rope about his neck. As has doubtless been surmised by this time Hassam All was a master criminal. They say that every man who commits a crime leaves something behind. Has sam All had winnowed down his risks until they were almost negligible. Every man who worked for htm did so under the unwritten contract of life or death. Nearly every tool Hassam All had stood under the shadow of death. That was principally why nothing ever Jed the trail to his house. There was among the va rious cliques over which he held sway no ordinary crook; the porch climber, the yeggman. the forger, the pickpocket had no standing among these men. They were all more or less men of scientific attain ments In whom the criminal instincts had been born, not created by environ ment. At 8 o'clock Amed came Into the myi tis room and announced that two gen tlemen wished to see him. Amed was bidden to bring them forthwith. They were old men, hawk featured, with high foreheads and brilliant eyes despite their apparent antiquity. They greeted Has sam Ali respeottully, but there was noth ing servile In their attitudes. They needed Hassam Ali, who In turn needed them. Thus they were equals. "You have It still?" Inquire Hassam All- Yes, we have never dared to patent It We are holding It until some great war breaks forth." "Listen." For halt an hour conversation was carried on In a monotone. At the end Hassam All sighed drew out bis wallet and gave each man a roll of bank note, eareful to observe that there were no gold eerilteates. As the vllltors stood up, about ta make their departure. Hassam All bade them wait a moment He sum moned Amed and ordered him to bring audasa down The exaesles of the twe aid nun ofaaaged surprisingly.
