TOMORROW GEORGE WALSH in "THE BOOK AGENT" TROLLEY MATTER COMES UP Μ μ ' f>nr ———— City Attorney Files Request foj Hearing Withtfi^^j^Éj City Attorney Leo Goldberger yes terday tiled with the Public Utilities Commission In Trenton a request that a day be set for a hearing: to compel the Public Servloe Railway Company to run cars coming In on State street down Smith street to the Staten Is land ferry and also on schedule ro ■ that they will connect with the ferry. t The city charges that the Public Service oompany always ran Its State street cars down Smith street and made the proper connections with ferries until the cars of the Newark fast line started to run to this city. The city claims that the service la poor and there Is no watting elation at Smith and State streets, where the occupants of the cars are transferred and forced to wait. The Public Serv ice Company has ten days during whloh to file its answer to show cause why an order should not be made calling for a hearing. This matter of making the cars run to the ferry and stopping the use of Smith and State streets as a trol ley terminal has been fought through the chancery courts, the city getting the worst of the decision, with the result that conditions are the same as they were about α year ago when the fast line first started to run. At torney Goldberger feels that this ac tion with the Utilities Commission will be the solution of the matter and declares that the only proper tribu nal to settle affairs of this kind Is the Public Utilities Commission. TO 60 TO TOTTENVILLE Middlesex Council, No. 63, Jr. O. U. A. M„ with the Westminster Fife and Bugle Corps, will accompany the members of Middlesex County Post Councilors Association to Tottenvllle tonight to take part In the parade and demonstration of the Richmond Coun ty Past Councilors Association that Is to be held In that place. A short meet ing of the council will Be held at Odd Fellows hall, after which the members of the association and the council with the drum flfe and bugle corps will march down Smith street to the ferry where they will board tho 8:40 o'clock boat. The banner won by Middlesex Council at the meeting of the Middle sex Past Councilors Association Mon day night will be carried in the parade. AT THE DITMAS ' It Is Important for intending pat rons of "Tho Birth of a Nation" which commences a three day engage ment at the Dltmas theatre tomorrow afternoon, to take note that this Is tho farewell tour of this tremendously successful spectacle. There will be two performances dally at 2:15 and 8:15 p. m. So many elements enter Into the success of "The Birth of a Nation, that an enumeration of the merits of the production might provo tedious. But It should be again said that the musical accompannlment to the pic ture. embracing folk songs, national anthems, engaging dance melodies and some of the finest compositions of the world's best composers, to gether with the creations of Joseph Carl Breii, has no small part In con tributing to the entertainment. A finely selected company of actors Is seen in historic and romantic roles, and there are tremoudous battle scenes, wonderful night rides of the Ku Klux Klan. delightful bits of comedy and romance and α visualiza tion of great historic events such as the assassination of President Lincoln and the surrender of I.eo to Grant. No such vital- picture as "The Birth of a Nation" has yet been plaoed upon the screen, and it is not at all strange that persons who have once seen the production again and again, git under the spell at the Orlf j fltli masterpiece.

Y., Sept. 12—The strongest baby In the United States—· the Infant Samson— challenges all the babies of America, Including your little fellow, to a strength test. Measure your baby up against Charlie. White, the miniature Her cules acquiring fame as 'The Physical Culture Baby." Charlie, son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred P. White of Syracuse, weighs 34 povnds at the age of 2 years and 4 months, and can lift coal buckets, chin himself, and toy with 10-pound weights. I Interviewed Baby Charlie on the front porch, In the backyard and all around the place at the White home on Marguerite avenue, on the out skirts of Syracuse. "To what do you attribute your un usual strength?" I asked. "Um-yumph, goo-goo, blub," an ewered Charlie. "Do you like your beefsteak rare or well done?" I continued. "Qhig, ha-ha, whee-e-e, jump," Charlie replied. U was plain that he refused to be quoted at length. In fact, his vocab ulary la somewhat limited. But ac tions speak louder, than words, and this Is what he did for me: liaised a bucket of coal weighing SO pounds with one hand, while bis father held htm in the air Took up a ten-pound bar weight and raised anil lowered It from the floor fire times over his bead. Allowed me to lift him off the floor by one hand and hold him for more tlian a minute. Uficd a stick with five fl&tlrons tied to It. < 'binned himself several times on a broomstick held by his father. Between times he chased hie two dogs around the house and garden and amused himself by climbing the porch railing and letting himself down into the front yard by one hand! I found the youngster dressed In a diminutive bathing suit—he never wear· anything else in rummer. "If all parents would do as we bar· done with our two boys." said Whit· In telling me about Charlie's training, "Uncle Sam wouldn't need to worry about good physical specimens for the army. He la a normal child In every respect, and always has been. I have not forced him to do anything: I have taught htm physical culture by playing at physical culture with him. "I started when he was Î0 days old. I noticed how he would cling with his baby hands to my finger. I de cided to test his strength and began raising and lowering him from, hi· carriage by letting him hold onto my two ftngers. "His arm and back muscles devel oped rapidly, and he soon could hold by a stick with both hands while I raised him from his crib or carriage. "From that time to now I have kept up his exercise, BEING CARE FUL ALWAYS NOT TO TAX HU) 8TRKNQTH. I believe In developing tlie arms, shoulders and back. The . leg· will take car· of themielres.
