8tart Plan to .Icopcn Canal
flUton. P.. March 14. At a mectlntr
th Pennsylvania Canal Boatmen's
Delation nere It was decided to hold
eetlng of all veterans of the tnwnath
Sunbury tomorroy In an effort to
aln nation or State legislation to
a tne old waterway re-established.
tnjr manufacturers are expected to
assistance in getting tho mer Its of
canal before, the Legislature.
Former Senator John n. Kheetz, of
Oerbrook. described the poor service In passed her When one finally stopped,
his section, declaring that the service she asserted, Mie was pus-lud off by
had not kept pice with the'growth In I the conductor and narrowly escnpid
population He suggested a shuttle car falling under the wheels. Mrs. Lee de-

ln the normal maximum number of cars
operated, whllo during that time the
Increased number of passengers carried
was 24 per cent.
"Theso figures sp;ak for themselves
and show conclusively that Instead of
tho seating capacity In the cars being
Increased It has actually decreased In
proportion to the number of Ipassengers
carried.
Inadequate Heneunts
"As to the renewal fund of the com
pany arising from setting aside 15 per
cent of the gross receipts. It Is no won
der the physical condition of the com
pany's cqu'pmcnt was so disastrous to
the public when we find that out of t!fi
renewal fund of 11,283.042 only J38C.9I9
was spent for renewals.
"Another remarkable showing that ap
pears from the company's report Is. that
while tho gross receipts Increased blx
millions nnd the passengers Increased
over two hundred millions between 1911
nnd 1917, tho Increased cost of main
tenance was a beggarly S30.000. This
would not bo enough to pay for the
wear nnd tear on tho pen used In writ
ing the check for Mr. Mitten's salary of
$100,000 per annum. The only Improve
ment In equipment claimed by the com
pany In their answer Is stated ns fol
lows: 'It (tho company) has under
taken during tho last year tho recon
struction of 100 double-truck open cars
Into closed cars of the pay-wlthln type.
Forty of theso cars hac been put Into
service.'
"Such a system Is well worthy to
receive over $28,000,000 In fares from a
generous people. While the company
was standing tho enormous financial
strain of changing forty summer cars
Into closed cars It added to the unex
pended renewal fund $071,973. There
fore we have before us a company which '
Is an examplar of economical manage-1
meet, whoso war cry Is 'more dividends,
more passengers, less equipment,' '
Specific charges of dangerous service, 1
filthy cars and uncivil employes In the
Northeast wero filed by (Jcorgo A. I
Campbell, an Iron and steel manu
facturer and president of tho Wlssinom-,i
Ing Improvement Association, who came
armed with letters of pretest from the
Dlsston saw works, National Ammonia
Company, Frankford Aresnal, Pennsyl-1
vanla Forage Company, and others.
Mr. Campbell, who said that tho cars
ran "like submarines" In groups, ho
meant blamed the so-called Mltten
Stotcsbury management. Up to three
and one-half years ago, ho testified, the
service was good, but under tho new
control cars were taken off ns a measure
of economy In Fplte of the fact that the
population of the section had Increased
greatly. He named Instances of whero
300 or BOO persons had to wait for an
hour In the cold.
Asked by Mr. Ballard In cross-cx-
I'our service on the ltldge aenue line
was rt sponsible for A llan, n postolllco
employe, of Manayunk, receiving many
demerit marks, he Mild Ityan asserted
that ho had to start to work inrly In
the morning In order to uach tho post-
olllce at the proper time
He also declared that the poor serv
ice demoralized the currier service, as
many of the men were constantly late
lor work. Women passengers, he de
clarid, wero obliged to tufftr many in
dignities. Mr. Ilallnrd asked the witness to cite
specific Instnnces ns tu whin he was
late and Rynn said he would do so when
bo obtained records from the postofllce.
Kensington Windows Itmken
The car tracks and roadway in Ken
sington avenue were In such bad condi
tion, according to M Mm dock, of Ken
sington nienue nnd Cumberland street,
that w Indow.i and glnsswnro In homes on
Kensington avenue were frequency
iroken by concussion, duo to the rattling
cars, In tho 2900 block on Kensington
nienue, ho said, thcro were seven breaks
In tho track.
In order Jo compel tho cars on tho
Chester Short Line to stop, Joseph Far
rell, of 792S Laycock avenue, said It
was necessary for pas-cngers to pile
railroad tlis on tho cartracks. Ho said
tho people concluded that the cars were
just being run to keep the crews warm
nnd maintain schedules, with the pas
sengers getting secondary consideration.

Meeting the Emergency
Production throughout the entire country is
at the highest notch. To maintain the pace we
have set for ourselves lo cope with the demands
which the world war has placed upon us it is
imperative, too, that our transportation facilities
be maintained at the highest peak of efficiency.
MOTOR TRUCKS and TRAILERS
have proved themselves fully able to cope with
the conditions which have overtaxed even our
magnificent railroad facilities. Freight cars are
at a premium, and the burden of the long as well
as the short haul and local delivery rests on the
motor truck and trailer.
They have over-ridden tradition, removed
prejudice, uprooted skepticism by rising to the
emergency. They have proved horse-drawn
equipment to be obsolete, costly, inefficient.
WHAT DO THEY MEAN TO YOU?
They can mean a broader scope for your busi
ness, assured deliveries, economical service, in
creased capacity. Why not decide to investigate
their possibilities now to avoid possible in
crease in price and insure early delivery?
