PATTON Until his election to tho Senate ho was for many years Select Coun cilman from the 27th ward. At a meeting of tho United Business Men's Association, held on Sep tember IB, he protested his loyalty to tho interests of tho pcoplo nnd pledged his vote as a member of Councils' Finance Committee and on tho floor of Councils to support the transit plans of Director Taylor. In a privato conversation yesterday, however, he said; "I worked against the Woodland avenue elevated road project." Tho Woodland avenue elevated road, a part of tho Taylor plan, would serve the pcoplo of Patton's senatorial district and afford them speedy, efficient nnd cheap transportation to and from tho heart of the city. chant princes of the city. The following are opinions given today by tucso men: Ellis A. Glmbel. of Glmbcl Brothers I think It Is n great mistake. It furnishes absolutely no service to tho district oast of Broad street. I don t think, the cltl zens of Philadelphia will stand for any Tlan that does not provide for that dls trlct. It will be tremendous Inconvenience fojthpusanis. of peoplo who start for homo from, snyrilih'"or 12frr'slrceV"ah'd Market.

Lit, "of Lit Brothers I'm In JUDGE WILLSON'S RESIGNATION LIKELY Reported Ready to Quit the Bench Because of Impaired Health. Itumors were circulated In political circles today that tho resignation of Judge Itqbert N. Wlllson, president Judge of the Court of Common Pleas No. 4, would bo forwarded to Governor Brum baugh before the expiration of his term. This, it was reported, did not mean that he would wait until a few days before tho expiration of his term, but that tho formal resignation would bo forwarded tonight or Monday. Judge "Wlllson denied this afternoon that he had already sent the resignation, but admitted that resigning was a movo he contemplated. Ill-health, he said, would be the reason he would leave the' bench. Since November 25 he has been 111 at his home, 2 Spruce street. The resignation haa been rumored for monthsj but Associate Judges said today they had not heard he expected to leave the bench Immediately. Governor Brumbaugh will be called upon to All two vacancies In the Court of Common Pleas should Judge Wlllson resign. The .creation of a second vacancy would relieve the Governor of the necessity of choosing between can didates urged for appointment as succes sor to Judge Kinaey, who died a month ago, FRANKFORD MEN CONFER Spend Three Hours With Transit Di rector Taylor. A delegation representing the Frank ford Board of Trade and the Frankford Business Men's Association spent nearly three hours with Director Taylor this morning reviewing the details of tho transit program. Humors that the meet ing lacked harmony were strengthened by a statement Issued after the meeting by Perclval S. Woodln. attorney for the Board of Trade. Mr, Woodtn said; "A committee composed of members of the Frankford Board df Trade and the Frankford Business Men's Association t)ila morning held a twothour conference With Director Taylor In an effort to har monlzo the comprehensive plan of Direc tor Taylor with the needs of their sec tion. The Interview developed the fact that Frankford, aa usual, would be called upon to sacrlUco immediate betieUts for the sake of the city at large and future benefits. ?Th,U. of course, was not particularly pleasing to the members of the com mittee, although they expressed the opin ion that Frankford would probably be un. selfish In the matter arid continue to up hold the plapa of Director Taylor. They expressed themselves as having a keen appreciation of the courtesy and fair mindedness of tho Slroctor though not absolutely convinced of the future favor able outcome of his plans."

The pig palters, it is said, are doing their utmost to keep It at live cents and for the time being are sue ceedlngs. This will last, they say, only so long as they uro still baking the flour that ttey contracted for at a low price months ago.
