Railroads of This Country Mast
Have Means For Expansion,
further denials that the Pennsylva

eration at the hands of the Interstate
Commerce Commission yesterday came
from Ivy L. Lee, executive assistant to
Samuel F. Rea, president of the Penn
sylvania Railroad, Mr. lin an ad
dress at 'Wilmington on Thursday, said:
"Is it. conceivable that wo would play
falsij with our employes who have
served us so harmoniously? We came
up through the month of February
hoping that business would improve
nd that wo could avoid serious re
trenchment. We found that our gross
business for the month of February
this year was $2,000,000 less than in
February last year. With the figures
before us. we found it necessary to
make a drastic cut in expenses."
Mr. Lee said ho was not there to
defend any past bad practice of the
vailroads. He claimed that the rail
roads of this country give better ser
vice, cheaper freight rates and pay
better wage? than any other railroads
in the world. Mr. l*ee said the rail
roads ran continue to live without the
granting of the requested Increase in
the freight rates, but if they continue
to expand they must liavo increased

Arthur Woods to-day to assign a se
cret service squad of eight men, uhder
command of a police captain, to guard
Mayor Mitchel. The commissioner has
ordered that the mayor be guarded
night and day and members of the
squad will watch his home, accompany
him to and from his home and City
Hall and go with him on trips about
the city and out of town.
To Police Captain Thomas Tunney
the mayor's would-be assassin told the
story of his life a story that was con
firmed by entries in his diary and
which gave little ground for a belief
that Mahoney acted under commands
from another, or in a concerted move
to kill the mayor. He told Captain
Tunney that he had called at the City
Hall to remonstrate with Mayot
Mitchel and had been "insulted" there.
"I then decided to kill him." he said.
Horn in Ireland
Mahoney was born on March 17,
1842, near Cork, Ireland. He came to
this country about sixty years ago, but
could not recall the exact date. His
wanderings about the country began,
ho said, soon after he lost a suit for
damages against a man who sold him
a farm in Kentucky because there was
no fence about the property. Because
he could not or would not pay the
costs of the suit the property was
foreclosed and sold for much less than
its value. This was in 1888.
Mayor Mitchel thinks the talisman
given him when in Costa Rica brings
him good luck. While thus expressing
himself to friends at the Press Club
last night Mr. Mitchel displayed a
little gold image of a frog, about an
inch and a quarter long, which he car
ries with his knife, on one end of hi*
watch chain. It is one of small gold
tokens that are dug out of old graves
all through Central America and
usually sold to tourists. "When thU

Special to The Telegraph
Mechanicsburg, Pa., April 18.— The
sudden death of John Sherrick Mc-
Caleb last night, was a shock to the
community. He was a sufferer from
heart trouble, but was not in a serious
condition, and attending to business as
usual. Upon retiring last night, he
was seized with a severe pain at his
heart, and expired in his wife's arms
before the physician reached the
house. He was a well and prominent
ly known resident of this place, and
has been employed for about eight
years as Auditor in the Auditor Gen
eral's Department at the Capitoi in
Harrisburg. Mr. McCalttb was an ex
pert accountant and was active in
this line aside from his work at the

STILT KING FIUS
11 PIES BIRD
Declares With Shakespeare That
Good Buttermilk Needs
No Press Agent
Irwin, Pa. April 18—A headlong
plunge down a hill and a tangled wind
up at the bottom were the thrills yes
terday in the day' 3 life of the Tele
graph's stiltwalker, F. E. Wilvert,
As once before on his remarkable
trip, Wilvert this time escaped injury
although suffering slightly from
bruises. His stout stilts also remain
ed unbroken. When he took the
plunge Wilvert managed to swerve to
the side and rolled like a barrell for
a considerable distance.
W ilvert got Into town at 8 o'clock
last night and received considerable
of an ovation. He stopped at the
Irwin house and drank about a quart
of M. J. McDonnel's famous butter
milk, which is brought down every
day from up the hill by a buttermilk
specialist. Wilvert quoted Shakes
peare as he downed the last drop, re
marking: "Good wine needs no busli.
and good buttermilk no press agent."
A d£ep silence in the bar followed
this remark, and then the crowd gave
three cheers for the stilt king who
soon after retired, or, as we say up
here, went to bed.

Big Procession Will Precede Cere
monies Croation Soliol
While the greater part of Christen
dom was gaily celebrating Easter Sun
day just a week ago to-morrow there
were many people scattered through
out the world who held alpof from the
festivities. To these people, the fol
lowers of the orthodox churches, the
anniversary of the resurrection v of
Christ conies to-morrow.
Down in the little foreign settlement
in the lower end of Steelton the mem
bers of St. Nicholas' Servian Orthodox
Church for days past have been busy
preparing for to-morrow's festivities.
On Friday a deep excavation was
made in the rear of the church, in
South Second street, to represent the
sepulchre of Christ. In this place was
interred an Image representing tht.
To-morrow morning at 3 o'clock the
members of St. Nicholas' congregation
will assemble in their church and.
headed by the priest in his flowing
robes, will form into a procession to
proceed to the "sepulchre." Here it is
the custom to have music, and much
rejoicing as the happy discovery is
made that "the Christ is arisen."
After this ceremony at the sepulchre
is vended the procession will disband
to celebrate the day in much the Bame
manner as Easter was observed last
Sunday. A concert by the Liberty
band and a drill by the Croatian Sokol
will be some of the high lights in the
day's festivities. Easter, according to
the orthodox church, falls one week
later than in the Catholic Church on
account of a change in the manner of
reckoning time. The orthodox church
clings to the old Julian calendar, while
the Catholic Chuch has adopted the
calendar as corrected under Pope
CANTATA BIG SUCCESS
The fourth annual cantata of the
Steelton high school, "The Rose Mai
den," sung last evening, was a decided
success. The big chorus of 175 voices
sang its parts in a pleasing manner
and the work of the soloists evoked
round after round of applause from
the big audience. The solo parts were
taken by Mrs. O. T. Good, Miss Es
ther Long, Robert Milliard and Stan
ley Backenstoss. The chorus was
drilled under the direction of Pro
fessor William Harclerode, supervisor
of music in the Steelton schools.

The Steelton car was en route to
Harrisburg. Two miles east of Rock
ville Weirich saw a car driven by C. P.
Rodgers coming west. To avoid the
Rodgers car Weirich turned toward the
fance along the bank, crashing into
the Jesse Yv. Hedrick car which was
stalled because of a lack of gasoline.
.'Young Hedrick, it is said, with his
I friends, R. O. Bodenhorn, and two
(girls whose names could not be learn
ed, were standing along the fence.
When the crash came the occu
pants of the Steelton car were tumbled
out. Bodenhorn grabbed one girl and
got her out of the way of the Steelton
car, but he could not reach the Pax
tang girl in time and she was caught
by the running board and thrown to
the ground.. The Paxtang girl's first
name is said to be Lucy,
i Back of the Steelton car was an
other machine from Steelton. In this
party were Councilmen Frank Steea
and Thomas Nelly, David Baker, Gil
bert Brown and Harry Diek. They
went at once to the aid of the injured
and took the Steelton folks home.
Bodenhorn to-day in speaking otf
the accident said that the Steelton car
was running at the rate of forty miles
an hour. Following the smashup Bo
denhorn said that young Weirich was
about to jump into the Susquehanna
river, fearing that he would get into
trouble for damaging his father's car.

and was thrown against a fence. She
was taken to her home immediately
after the accident and placed under

name of the girl In HedricU's car.
Occupants of the Rodgers car and
those in the second Steelton car say
that Young Weirich had no other
course than to turn his car toward
the bank, and that he did not know of
the presence of the Hedrich car,
which, according to those in the Steel
ton car, showed no lights.
