BAN ON BAD 'BLOCKLEY'
BOOZE; VICTIM DIES
"Either Liquor Quits or I Do,"
Says New Superintendent
of Smuggling Practice
The smuggling of liquor Into "Wockley"
must stop. It continued until a dentil
resulted. The new superintendent of the
Philadelphia Hospital announced tils ulti
matum today "either liquor quits 'Block
ley' or I do."
Michael Salmon, 63 years old, was ad
mitted to the Institution a year ago and
put In the "drunk ward." He was appar
ently cured and became an attendant In
the boiler room. Yesterday he was found
Intoxicated and Buffering also from some
other poisoning besides that of alcohol
and today he died. How he got the liquor
Is not known. Arlon Craig and Stonewall
Jackson, a negro, Inmates of the hospital,
were caught recently with liquor which
they had smuggled Into the Institution,
and they were sentenced to six months In
the House of Correction on Saturday.
Craig was caught climbing over the
wall separating the Institution from
Woodlands Cemetery; he had a half-pint
bottle of whisky In his pocket. Stone
wall Jackson had gotten a card to permit
him to leave the place for several hours.
He returned with a half pint suspended
by a piece of string down one trouuer leg.
It was not found when he was searched.
So much liquor had been brought In of
late that Inmates on leave of absence were
searched on returning. Since Stonewall
Jackson's original method of deception
the searching will be more carefully done.
Also, the cards for leave of absence will

NEW LAW, OLD MAN
TRIES TO END LIFE
Man of G3, Rejected by Com
pensation Act, Makes an
Attemt at Suicide
An attempt to end his life was attribut
ed to the action of tho workmen's com
pensatlon act In the case of Adam Grind
er, who, though 63 years of age, had been
able to hold up his end as a carpenter at
Harrison Brothers, 36th and Gray's Ferry
road. He failed to pass the medical ex
amination required by the new law, and
on two counts, "old age" and "bad heart,"
he was compelled to give up his Job.
He boarded at the home of Charles
Simpson, 4923 Woodland avenue. When
he came back after being rejected by the
examiners he seemed to go rapidly to
pieces; the habit of work being suddenly
abandoned he began to complain of Ills he
had never before noticed. He waa
despondent and Indignant that he would
have to depend on his children In future
The odor of gas came from his room
yesterday. He told Simpson "It must have
been an accident." Last night gas was
escaping again and this time Grinder was
taken to the Philadelphia Hospital uncon
scious. He will recover. Grinder's work
was to make frames used In the precipita
tion of white lead Until the working of
the compensation lw "found him out,"
as he put It, there had been no complaint
about his tfflcleney.
CARRANZA FORCES RUSHING
TO BORDER, THREATEN ENTRY
OF U. S. TROOPS IN VILLA HUNT
Revolt Believed Under Way and Oppo
sition Certain Unless Reciprocal
Demand for Carranzistas to
Cross Line is Granted
Preparations for Expedition Thorough in Anticipation of
Long and Tedious Campaign Mobilization Con
tinues Aeroplane Squadron Already on the
Move Rangers for Scout Work
Word was received today from Lnredo, Tex., thnt Gencrnl Carrnnzn
wns ruahinR 25,000 troops toward the border in expectation thnt the United
Stntcs would refuse to Krnnt permission for Mexican troops to cross the
border. Ten thousand of these men will po to Juarez, C000 to NoRnles nnd
he other 10,000 will be scattered at other points.
In addition to the 25,000 men Cnrrnnzn is said to bo moving to the
border, he hus 20,000 other soldiers under arms. His total strength, how
ever, is snid not to exceed '15,000 men.
Concentration of Cnrranza troops along the Mexicnn-Amcrican border
was taken ns an indication that tho entry of United States soldiers, to
round-up Villa, would meet opposition, whether with or without the au
thorization of tho do facto government.
Co-operation from President Carranza himself, however, was regarded
ns probable, if President Wilson granted his demand that Mexican troops
bo allowed to cross the American line, if necessary, in pursuit of Villa.
Picsidcnt Wilson nnd Secretaries Lansing and Baker were expected to
frame a reply to tho Carranzo manifesto today.
General Gavira, Carranza commandant at Junrez, has been informed
through State Department agents, that the do facto Government would bo
held responsible for the safety of the 500 Mormon colonists in the Casas
Grandes and Galena districts.
Continued reports from across tho line were to the effect that the
do facto forces wero about to unite with Villa's bands, in n dual effort to
vent their hatred against Americans and seek the overthrow of Carranza.
A new raid was threatened by 150 bandits, who crossed tho border 50
miles cast of Douglas, Ari. They fled when apprised of the approach of
United States soldiers.
The movement of American troops was continued, forces being rushed
along tho border in preparation for the dash into Mexico. The start was
expected to bo tomorrow or Wednesday.
Already the aviation squadron from Fort Sam Houston hns been moved
and is prepared for the invasion.
Troop3 arriving hourly at Columbus, N. M., strengthened the belief that
one of the principal columns to hunt Villa would start from here. Tho 13th
Cavalry, which routed Villa's superior numbers in Thursday's raid, was
being outfitted, apparently to lead tho pursuit.
General Carranza wns slntcd for a conference with his cabinet at Quere
taro, north of Mexico City.
Villa lenders and supporters in El Paso nro being rounded up and nn
embargo has been jjlnccc. on all shipments of arms into Mexico.

MARRIAGE A HOLY
BOND, TOO OFTEN
Rev. I. Chantry Hoffman, in
Lenten Sermon, Deplores Ten
dencies That Undermine the
EXPLAINS DIVINE ORIGIN
Free love nnd the "unholy affinities
that curse with their luro to unfaithful
ness" nnd proclaim atheism wero con.
domned today by tho nev. I. Chantry
Hoffman, pastor of the Lutheran Church
of tho Nativity. In the first of a series
of six t,enten nddrest.es on "The Christian
Family" nt Old St. John's Church, llace
street near 6th.
"God married Adam and Eve nnd estab
lished tho family; colonies of free Ioe
are founded by men nno women who boast
that they have Improved on the divine
method," he declared. "Ilomemakers are
dolnet God's will; homebreakers aro do
ing the devil's work."
The number of divorces Is Increasing In
greater proportion than tho marriages
each year, the speaker said, because of
tho things which marriage opposes.
"Wedlock," he declared, "is opposed to
unwarrantablo celibacy; to nuptials post
poned for financial reasons; to childless
homes because of unwillingness to as
sume the obligations of parenthood; to
domestlo life with expenses which compel
debt beyond tho Income; lo tho double
standards of morality, which permit ono
to accuse the woman and acquit the man;
to the Insanitary and immoral tenements;
to that type of hotel life which "demor
alizes; to the conditions generally among
the rich as well as the poor, which for
bid the formation of ties that bind hearts
and make the home, and to the unholy
atllnltles that curse with their lures to un
faithfulness." Marriage, he said, presupposes obedience
to the Scriptural law of consanguinity
and the Fifth Commandment, requiring
parental consent as well as the require
ment of a courtship to prove mutual con
geniality, the apostolic Injunction to bo
married "in the Lord" and not to be un
equally yoked together, and the reasonable
demand of high character, It Is to be
entered in the fear of Qod. he declared.
The speaker summed up the Christian
teaching of marriage as "ordained for the
purification of the natural affections, the
procreation of the race and the happiness
of those who enter it in humble submis
