. Positive Announcement at His

Opposite Reports
SAYS HE'LL BE ON DECK
WHEN CONGRESS CONVENES
United State. Senater William K.
Crew today said positively that lie will
l n candidate for the full term as
Senater In witceBsien te the Inte Phi
lander C. Knox.
Tim declaration, mnde at his home In
Unlonewn, was In effect n steam-roller
flattening reports thnt Illness has drlrcn
lilm te the point where he Is reconciled
tu yielding his nmblllen of years.
A (short time nftcr the sudden death
f Senater Knox nt his Washington
home, 'foverner Sproul named State
Chairman Crew for the Scnnte vacancy.
Tlie appointment followed n conference
the Governer had with Sennter Pen-
1W"'
Since his nppeintmcut, senator
Crew virtually has been n atrnuger te
Ms Senate seat ana probably would
lieed an Intioductlen te the doorkeeper.
He baa been In the Senate only twice,
onto when be wns wvern In. Recently
lie lias been recuperating at Atlantic
O'ity and nt Uniontown.
Neter Had Oilier Idea
Then came reports that Senater Crew
would net be n cnndldate nt the State
lirlniary In May. Vnrleim men were
nuggestrd ns alternative candidates,
notably .lebu A. Hell, n Pittsburgh
banker, wbe Is also mentioned for the
lovcrnersblp. Kcperts even went se
far an te state Crew would support
Dell for the United States Senate.
All these reports were laid before
the Junier United States Senater today.
"I have, never bad but one Idea, nnd
that Is te be n candidate for the full
term." Mr. Crew replied. "There has
been no ether tlmughl than thnt what
ever. Ne ether suggestion has ever
been made te me.
"As everybody knows. I have net
been quite up te par. but I have been
upending most of the time getting ready
for my Senate duties. I intend te be
present nt the opening session when
the bennte reconvenes after the holi
days. Feeling Flrst-Rate
"I am feeling first-rate new nnd am
net confined te the home. I go out
"very day and am gradually getting back
te my old-time form. Ven inn bay it
.niit an strong as you like that I nm
a eandldate for the full term."
With the governorship und a United
States sonatershlp as the great prizes,
Pennsylvania politics new resembles a
fclgantie ebcsibenrd ou which the kings,
knights, reeks und ether pieces nre
being moved te effect checkmates of
candidacies.
Kricuds of Senater Crew believe Mr.
Hell's senatorial boom is merely a move
designed te force bis acceptance bj the
.state lenders an tlui Republican candi
date for Governer.
Mr. Hell's attitude, us described by
Ins friends, is thnt In; would be do de
'Ignled te xviu the senatershlp. but that
'lie will have te be persuaded" te tuki
'henomlnaten for Governer.
The governorship booms of Lieuten
ant Governer Reidlcmnu nnd of Stele
Treasurer Snyder are new regarded as
'angel wrecks. Stale Highway Com Cem

WON'T RECOGNIZE STATUS
OF CHAMBER COMMISSION
Mayer Moere and the Chamber of
Commerce are nt variance "vr two is
sues the plans for giving employment
te 4000 men ns night watchmen and
for xverking out nexv trnflii' nilcs.
The Mayer has set himself against
both plans, but the chairmen of the
business men's committees have indi
cated that they are going right uleng
with the work they hnve set themselves
te de.
The Mnyer Issued n statement tedny
cendcmnnur the scheme te hiie I0U0 Idle
men ns private night xvntchmen, tax
ing householders who wish tiie extra
protection fifteen cents a xxeek. He
said the ci'y had no money te hire pri
vate watchmen nnd the police depart
ment would net Mtnetieu the collection
of fifteen cents weekly from household
ers. Mayer Issues Statement
Publication of the details of the plan
bus sent numerous applicants te the
Mnyer'n office for watchmen's jobs.
Yesterday afternoon they begun te ur
rhc, and tlr'y continued today in
crowds. It was this dcfccnt of the job
less upon the Mayer's office that brought
out the following statement:
"Se much publicity has been gixen te
somebody's plan for employing -1000
xvntchmen that a veritable raid has been
made upon this ellice. where we have no
xvatchmen'H jobs te give out. nnd where
no such plan ns has been publicly dis
cussed Is contemplated.
"In the first place, the citv has no
money with which te employ -1000
xvntchmen, and, fn the second place,
the Department of Public Safely would
net sanction nny scheme which con
templated the collection of fifteen cents
or- any ether sum from householders.
The practice xveuld he dangerous in two
ways; first, as encouraging graft, nnd.
second, as involving investigations and
Inquiries by the Police Department, for
xvlileh it has neither the money nor the
time.
Places for 125 Policemen
"We nre ubeut te employ I'Je euni
r-ollcenien en tbe strength of an ap
propriation made by f'eimfll. .f -n
xvbe need employment and who- nic
qunllfied te be pelh-cntcn hnve the
right te apply under the cixil service
for thesi places. We have nn watch
men's jeb.s fe jive out, nml would net
encourage any scheme contemplating
collection) from liousXiehlers te p:iy
watchmen. The Charter points out a
way by vvhiih the Mayer could rcure
etrn P' I icemen in emergency such n a
riot. He could then order in th" Park
ititirds ind sve.ir in citien.s te he paid
at the rate of policemen, but fertu-

Jehn F. liiichanan, chairman of the
Mayer's Unemployment Committee of
the Chamber of Commerce, was sur
prised at the Mayer's statement, ns the
committee itself stands sponsor for the
I inn te employ -00(l night wntchmen.
"There are private, watchmen cm
pliyed at present." said Mr. Ruehannn,
"end always have been and will be.
Neither the Mayer nor the city will be
asked te pay the 10(111 men we wish te
see given employ incut. It is net a
question of asking th" iltj te pay them.
Denies Danger of UruH
"Ner xveuld'. theie lie nnv mere dan
ger of craft nndcr sucii a plan than
there Is with the prlx-atc watchmen new
employed. We arc net asking the city
te collect this lnenev . All the city xveuld
de would he te swear the watchmen in
and clothe then, with the proper au
thority. "The whole mutter nlie.uly Ims been
taken up with Director Co'rlelyeu, of
the Depuitnieiit of Public Safety, He
huw given the plan his approval. The
police deportment bus agreed In swear
these watchmen In.
"The Mayer's statement seems weak
and his point ill taken. We will go
riKiii iini'iie wiim our iniii unless Ine
Mayer tlneltles it."
Mr. Rin hi) nn ii said thnt a man Ik

t mcree will go into action. This nn nn
Iieiiik emeiif is made by Daxid Kirscli

When the Mayer heard about .the
new i oinmNsieii he conferred with
Superintendent Mills and inquired into
the general situation. He was infermi d
the new parking regulations are giving
satisfaction, are working well and theie
have been few complaints upon either
side. Tbe Mnyer then assured the
Superintendent of Police he Intended te
allow the police t" "r.!im: handling

When Intermed that he xva.- suppescii
te have requested Alba II. Jolnien,
'president of the Chamber of Commerce,
te ergnt Ie tin' new traffic commission,
i lie Mayer said a formal exchange of
letters upon the subject had taken
place, but that the police are competent
le handle the situation, that he intends
te allow them te de se. Mini that he
does net xvnut a traflie commission.
Mr. Jehnsen said It was true the
Mayer had net requested the feimullnii
of the commission, but that he had
approved it.
''The Mayer wns consulted," said
Mr, Jehnsen, "beeaus-e the Chamber of
Cemercn did net feel It should go ahead

Washingtmi, Dec. L'S. -Frem the
American delegation it Is learned thai,
there .s Ut tle hope of renching nn agree
ment fe limit submarines. .Seme reso
lution about the slums quo and pest
J pening action until n further confer cenfer confer
ence is the utmost flint Is expected. ,
The diflicully with the status quo is
tliat the French wish te build mere
submarines. And Ihe Italians insist
upon equaling tlie French.
If siibmailnes nre net abolished or
severely restricted tbe Fnglfsh, It Is
officially announced, will Insist upon the
unlimited right te build fast auxiliary
slop" witli which te combat them.
Thus the only naval limitation that
seems possible at this Conference 1
upon cardial ships.
Kurtipeaii Agreement Possible
A political ngrecincnt lit Kurepe,
something like the four-Power pact, by
whiili torriteKoH arc guaranteed, or nt
least a pledge te respect territories is
1 given, may clear up the difficulties that
I Me in the way of submarine ami aux
iliary craft building. Rut short of
I that it is hard te see eny prospect of
1 restricting modern instrumentalities of
war.
' Tlie surprise f this Conference far
the Americans ha.s been the virtual im
possibility of preventing war by the
, limitation of nrmatnent. It is franklv
conceded by every one that airplane
construction cannot be effectively re- .
strictcd. Planes can be milekly built
and the-e used eommcreiallv can be
readily converted for hostile 'purposes.
Submarines are almost like airplanes
in this respect. Kven If nntinns acreed
te mniiitnlii only n small tonnage, of
Nubtiinrlnes, they could speedily ndd te
their nrmuinent In ense of hostility
Seme resjrictien of the uses of both'
airplanes nnd submarines in xvnr may
be nttempted. Rui even here the na
tions which expect te use them will
oppose any severe regulations. And
I It is always a questlrn hew- much sue'j
1 rcgulatlena will lie obeyed In the fvnt
of hostilities. The question of re-
I MrJetlng uses of submarines- and alr
planes hns net yet been taken up at
1 this Conference.
Difficult le Restrict Armies
Laud armament Is another thing
which has been shown te be difficult te
restrict, (iermuny is bound by severe
treaty obligations with regard te the
, sl.e of her military force. Rut no two
people agree as te whut that force is
potentially today.
P.y training officer, and maintaining
the skeleton organization of large
armies a nation inny lie effective in a
military sense. And If (feneral Ian
Hamilton nnd ether military student9
arc right, the next xvnr xvill find com
paratively small land forces uetlng In
conjunction witli airplanes nnd tanks.
The further tills Conference gees In
1 lie subject, the greater appears thf!
impossibility of lessening the probabil
ity of xvnr through the limitation of
armaments. And If naval men like
Sir Percy Scott, Admiral Deben and
Admiral Fullain nre right, navies of
the future will net consist of battle
ships, which this Conference lias been
uerps.itul in restricting, but of submt
uties. fast auxiliaries and airplanes.
If this, Conference hns lessened th
prospect of war in the Pacific anil It
is generally admitted that it hH done
