nouncement by September 13 !
The wages of the tank tester and
riveters in this district, who receive
seventy and seventy-two and one-half
cents an hour, probably will be Increased
to eighty cents, but no changes arc ex
pected to be made In the wages of tho
numerous other shipyard trades.
Tho present scale of wages In thes
districts, which was agreed to Febru
ary 14, was to continue In effect six
months, making a readjustment possible
on August 14.
The I-abor Adjustment Hoard held a
series of conferences with the various J
Lhlnvard craft unions in Auvust. durlne
which wage adjustments were discussed
at length. The figures nf the cost of
living today compared with six months
ago In tho Delaware River and Haiti-.
more districts did not show nny war- '
rant for materially increased wage". It
Is learned.
With regard to the request of the
first-class machinists for u wage nf $1
an hour. It ls said that a comparison of
living costs six months ago am
today
give little ground for the proposed
33 1-3 per cent wage advance.
To grant this request without any
substantial basts, it Is said, would com
pletely unstablllze wngo for the other
shipyard trades and create a chajtic
condition In all yards.

as he was a member olm intended tn i
protest every time "militarism runs ram

Senator Sherman, of Illinois, asked
Senator Johnson If the writ of habeas
corpus had been suspended and tho
California Senator replied that In tho
draft raids, that and every other writ
had been Ignored.
"Is this one of the ways of making
the world and the United States of
America safe for democracy?" Senator
Sherman Inquired,
Replying, Senator Johnson said that
while he knew Senator Sherman was
among those disturbed over socialistic
ventures he, himself, was1 not so dis
turbed over "material things" as those
affecting personal rights.
The discussion ended with recital by i
Senator Sherman of the alleged lncl-
dent In Germany before the war in
which a German officer wa. court-mar-
tlaled for stabbing a citizen who failed
to get oft a sidewalk.
"Is there any material difference,"
Senator Sherman asked, "between this
militarism and Kalserism in Berlin and t
the bayoneting of Innocent men In the
streets of New York?"
Tolndexter Defends ItuiiU
While regarding It as unfortunate any
innocent man should have been appre
hended, Senator Volndexter, of Wash
ington, In reopening1 debate later, de-
clared there had been a "good deal of
looseness in the assertion of facts" by
.Senators, and that the New ork au
thorities were simply performing their
duty In rounding up slackers. He de
fended the action, as a "Justifiable mili
tary proceeding," and said there was
nothing to show that the rights to a
writ of habeas corpus had been sus
pended or that any man caught In the
raid had made any effort to resort to this
legal procedure. He added that there
was nothing to show any great hardship
was imposed on any of the men, and
that there had been an exaggeration of
tho whole affair.

Committee of tho draft-slacker raids In

"This Is tho first letter I havo been
able to write recently, as we have been
In hell for five days. Wo were ordered
Into tho trendies the early part of the

ono of the heaviest artillery bombaid

"All the boys from around home are

but everybody agrees that tho outfit has
made a name for Itself. We arc now
testing for a couple of days behind the

"The boys are not anxious to repent
their experience, but, of course, will will
ingly go Into the fight again.
"I havo had several narrow escapes.
Cnco while lying along a road a shell
exploded directly In front of mo so close
that I was burned by the powder. Yet
all It did was to knock the wind out of
me and blow my tin hat heavenward.
Another time I had to leave tho trench
for work assigned to mo and got a hot
reception. The boche Is a poor marks
man, and I havo reached the conclusion
that I like bullets better than shrapnel.
This might seem funny, but experience
has taught me this. I am in good health
and havo a fltio appetite."

PENROSE AND BONNIWELL DENY
TRUTH OF PALMER'S CHARGES
Continued from Tiute One
n few sclf-constltuted officeholders Is
seldom witnessed In the management of
nny party. The prjscnt Democratic
leadership In Pennsylvania has never
been deep-rooted or In any way In ac
cord with tho real Democratic strength
of the State. It Is based solely on the
control of Federal patronage under tho
Wilson administration.
"Few of the real Democrats who hold
electlre olllee from Democratic sections
arc In any kind of harmony with tho
Pnliner-McCormlck-Guffey leadership. It
seems strange that any political leader
ship should so pers'stently Ignore and
drive away such Important party ele
ments, but ijucIi Is the fact.
I'"ew Are Klected
"Tho holding of Federal office Is tho
chief iinalllleallon for participation In
the councils of the Pnlmer-Guffcy-Mc-Cormlck
coterie. The members nro all
nppolnted and few arc over elected to
anything. Hence, the Democrat to party
In Philadelphia and Pennsylvania has
been demoralized. The slato arbitrarily
set up by the Guffcy-Palmcr-McCormlck
outfit was repudiated at the primary
election by the real Democratic voters
o ftlo Slntc.
"Tills Is the actual Democratic situa
tion, fwhlch tcsulted, lrtually In the dls
bamlonmeiit for the time being of a great
paity.
"President Wilson has ostentatiously
announced upon a sqlemn occasion In
a speech to the Senate nnd House that
politics should lio adjourned, and Mr.
McAdoo has recently called upon the
employes nf the railways to get out of
politics. .It would bo befitting, becom
ing nnd decent, If Palmer, McCormick
nnd Guffey were called off and ordered
to attend strictly to the supposed non
partisan duties of their positions.
"Palmer pailicularly holds a position
of high financial and Industrial Import
ance, dealing with property amounting
to many millions, and he could well
abstain from partisanship nt this time
and int permit his activities to sink to
the level of a village postmaster holding
office as the result of partisan service.
.Should AdmlnlMer Ofllee"
"Certainly the duties of alien property
custodian arc exacting enough, and he
should administer ills office for tho good
of the whole people and on strictly nonr
partisan lines. Instead of so doing.

Palmer tn conform himself to the dutlts

told mo ho (Bonnlwcll) was on the
Republican payroll when picked as
Democratic 'wet' candidate." I did
not make that statement. Neither did
I make any stntement from which
such a conclusion could bo drawn. It
Is untruo,
Mr. Palmer Is further reported ns
saying, "Sinnott, a Pcnroso lieutenant,
said Penrose selected Bonnlwcll." 1
did not use Senator Penrose's nnme In
any way during tho conference to
which he refers. The statement is
without foundation. It Is false.
Tho only fact connected with the'
whole story Is only that part of the
statement which say tho ."object ot
my visit was to persunde him to co
operato with Judge Bonnlwell." This
fact, I argued, could be done for har
mony and without Injury to his leader
ship In the Democratic party.
Referring to all tho other reported
sayings In tho articles which appeared
In yesterday's afternoon Philadelphia
papers, Insofar 'hs they purport to be
a conversation with me. anil so far a
they further purport to put sayings
Into my mouth, they nro untrue In toto,
nnd nro absolutely not the facts tit
any conversation 1 ever had with Mit
chell Palmer.

Mr. Palmer yesterday said Sinnott
fold him that he (Sinnott) had paid
Michael J. Ryan's campaign expenses In
curred (n tho gubernatorial campaign
of 1014. ,
Mr. Ryan today denied Sinnott had
paid his campaign expenses.. He said
ho did not know SlnnoW, would not
know him If ho saw him, and that Pal
mer's charges. In so far an they related
to him, were without foundation. He
knew nothing of the other allegations

PLAN FEWER TROLLEY RUNS
Reduction in Number "of Cars
Per Hour llcing Considered
The Slate fuel administration Is con
sidering a suggestion to reduce the
number of trolley cars an hour during
certain oft houra .throughout Pennsyl
vania. It was stated by K. L. Cole, assistant
lo Fuel Administrator Poller, that the
plan advanced by New York transit In
terests that all service bo s'topved be
tween midnight and 5 a. m. was out of
tho question for Philadelphia or for any
section of the Slate.
"Thero arc too many night workers
for this suggestion to he feasible in
Pennsylvania." Mr. Cole said, "hut as
for cutting down the number of car runs,
Investigation has shown that where cars
ran eleven minutes apart tho commu
nity would be served Just as well by
running them fifteen minutes apart. In
t her cases where cars are run at seven
minute Intervals during slack periods,
in ono would be greatly Inconvenienced
if the cai" were operated at tcn-mlnute
intervals."
BIGGEST U.J. HOSPITAL HERE

Tho buildings aro expec(cd to be com
