Kdse, of tho Senate, linvo ngrced with
party leaders to rush through thu net
determining how tho peoplo of the Stnto

election will ptobably bo held In August
and possibly In July.
Asscmbl) mini rtobert Fencock, of I3ur
lllngton County, has charge of the work
f drawing up tho act. IIo believes the
election should bo held In September, but
under the Constitution an election mu&t
bo held within four months after tho
Tho Legislature Is expected to adjourn
about April 20. This would moke It
mandatory to hold tho election before
August 20, nt a time when many persons
are out of the Stnto on vacations. It Is
expected that it will require almost three
months to perfect the machinery for hold
ing the election. Much depends upon how
the respective party lenders decide to
light suiftage at tile polls.
.PARCEL POST RATES OFFER
NO CLAIM TO CONTRABAND
Officials Believe They Will Not Per
mit Food Shipments Abroad.
Philadelphia postal officials are con
vinced that tho parcel post cannot be usea
effectively by German sympathizers In
this country to nullity tho blockade de
clared by tho Allies ngalnstiGermany and
Austria-Hungary. They base their opin
ions on tho lates of postage and on the
high pi ices of various commodities.
For Instance, the postage, rate on par
eels In tho foreign malls is 12 cents a
pcino. This would make the transporta
tion of a bushel of wheat, about 60
pounds, cost something like $7.20, which,
with tlie original cost of wheat, would
bring tho cost of each bushel something
like JS.50, far more than starvation prices.
The postal treaties of the United States
provide for International parcel post only
with countries that can be reached dl
redly by sea communication. Tho out
break of the war and 'the consequent ty
ing up of the ships that regularly piled
between this country nnd Germany
brought tho parcel post business with tho
latter country to a standstill for several
months. An arrangement was effected
whereby parcel post was forwarded by
way of Holland.
Under this arrangement parcel post
matter to Germany was shipped by the
Holland-American Line. Most of It,
however; was made up of Red CroBS sup
plies, which postal officials say continue
to make up tho majority of tho parcel
post mall sent to Germany.
Aside from the prohibitive cost, those
In authority say the facilities for carry
ing the malls aro not large enough to
permit the victualling of Germany by
the correspondence method.

BECAUSE OF BLOCKADE
Exports Decrease But Surplus Wheat
Is Nearly Gone, Says Vrooman.
WASHINGTON. March 2I.-Epcct.i-tlon
that the Allies' blockade against
foodstuffs will bilng down prices In this
country Is likely to meet disappointment,

While the exports have begun to Icsnen
the average amount of wheat for this
week being n little more than 000,000
bushels a dny bb against 1,200.000 a day

to the operation of the blnckade since
wheat had not been reaching Germany

Tho Increasing exportation fiom Argen

Came When Willbanks demonstrated how
the Mrong foundation of his faith would
prevent the devil from overcoming him
IIo wrestled around tho etnge with an
Imaginary devil, shouting, "Ho can't get
mo below my knees."
Slowly, as though struggling ilepernlcly,
he settled down on one kneo nnd showed
how ho would shout lo Heaven for help.
About half the audience stood up, shriek
ing nnd praying.
Tho evangelist started up tho front of
tho organ on another occasion to dem

Willbanks adopted n new method of
calling for pike-strikers last night After
he got" the nudlcnce standing by his flnnl
dnsh nround tho church, he asked nil tho
Christians nnd church members to sit
down. Then he called on all those who
did not expect to go to hell to come for

Two or threo non-church members In
