It will carry authority for organization of more batteries, a branch in which the State Is not up to what Uncle Sam requires, I but which necessitates a big outlay of money at the start.

SH9 MONDAY EVENING, HARRLSBURG TELEGRAPH FEBRUARY 8, 1015. P. IR. SCHOOLS PROVE BIG SUCCESS Apprentices Receive Pay With Education; Pamphlets Tell About Big System Interesting facts are contained in two pamphlets issued by the Pennsyl vania Kailroad Company on Saturday. One tells about the success of the ap prentice schools in Harrlsburg, Al toona and other cities and the other is full of statistics about the big railroad system. Referring to the apprentice schools,the pamphlet says: "The Pennsylvania Railroad believes in brains. It has been making invest ments in brains since the company's charter was granted in 1846. Five years ago it made another such invest ment in the brains of Its youngest shopmen through the opening of an apprentice school at the Altoona shops: Thirty pupils were enrolled then. "To-day the company is sending 300 young men to school and paying them for the time they spend there. Three branch schools have been opened, in cluding one at Harrlsburg. and so great has been the success of the whole experiment that plans are now under way to extend the shool work to all of the shops on the eastern lines of the Pennsylvania system where ap prentices may be employed. "Thus far 151 apprentices have com pleted the full three-year course and have been graduated from the schools. Approximately sixty more will be added to this number by the class going out this year." Other facts about the Pennsylvania Railroad follow: "It has 11.729.92 miles of length and 26,200 miles of tracks, 230,000 em ployes, 7,561 locomotives, 6,885 pas senger cars. 281,590 freight cars and 68 steamships and ferryboats. "Directly serves 15 of 48 States of the Union and the District of Co lumbia. whose combined population is 48,227,840. "All except two of the ten largest cities In the Union are directly on Its lines—and its 4,500 stations are at the command of 20 cities, each with a population of more than 100,000; 150 each with a population of more than 10,000 and 263 each with a pop ulation of more than 5,000." Railroad Profits Show Decrease For January Figures furnished by Edward B. Smith & Co., Philadelphia and Xew York bankers, show a decrease of 10.56 per cent, in earnings of fourteen 1 railroads during January. This tirml also says: "In the last six months i the Erie Railroad Company shows an j increase of net income amounting to $341,638. It is understood that the financing of the company for the cur rent year is arranged, subject to the approval of the Public Service Com mission."

B.—The floo<l water of the Ohio river began to re cede here early to-day and the offi cials of the Central Union Railway Station announced that it in more than probable that the station would be reoccupied by the railroad before night. I EXPRESS EMPLOYES HEAR TIMELY TALKS Heads- of Departments Point Out Mistakes in Shipments and Other Branches Employes of the Adams Kxpress Company from points on the main line and branches of the Pennsylvania railroad attended a conference In Har risburg Saturday. Representatives from as far west as Greensburg, south to Winchester.VVa t and York and north to Lock Haven, numbering forty, were present at two sessions held in the old Harrlsburg Board of Trade building. This meeting was presided over by Edward E. Sanford, general agent of the Adams Express Company for the Harrisburg district. The speakers were O. B. George, general claim agent. New York city; C. H. Packie, superintendent of the money order de partment, New York; L. S. Jacoby, su perintendent of supplies, Jersey City, N. J. .and W. H. Tunis, of the order and food products bureau, Philadel phia. Mr. George spoke on the subject of claims, original handling and final set tlement. H eexplained the cause was principally with the shippers in not properly preparing tbeir goods for shipment, in not properly marking same, and also laid great blame on the wagoninen and receiving clerks of the company for accepting this business in the manner in which they do. L. S. Jacoby, of the supply depart ment. spoke on the use and abuse of supplies. This feature of the business requires great care, or the cost would run away with the benefits. Marking tags for the year 1913 cost the com pany more than $20,000, said Mr. Jacoby. C. H. Packie, of the money order department, instructed the agents in the handling of money orders. P. & R. HELPING TO BOOM FOREIGN TRADE [Continued from First l'agc.] Tories for the purpose of encouraging managers who have been content to let their market be confined to merely local fields to spread out and look be yond their immediate horizons for the trade that is coming to this countrj as a result of present conditions In Europe. Among other things, the Reading agents put the manufacturers in touch with the proper authorities at Wash ington who keep them posted on pos sibilities of trade abroad. Every day brings to those who desire it a govern ment bulletin of developments and the local manufacturer is given names, addresses and dates upon which for eign purchasers will be at given points so that the two can get to gether. New York and other exporters are also brought into touch with inland factory heads so that the requirements of one may be met with the products of the other. Already there is quite an extensive file of letters in Mr. Hilleary's office expressive of the appreciation of the service the Reading is rendering in this respect and not a little material benefit has been noted by those who have taken advantage of the oppor tunities thus offered. BEGIN LAST LAP OF IMPROVEMENT WORK [Continued from First Page.] more important work was rushed through during the late Fall and early winter. On Paxton creek about 650 feet of the concrete work remains to be com pleted. Most of this is in the vicinity of Reil.v street. For half of this dis tance the invert, or floor portion of the big gutter has been put down. Con siderable grading is yet to be done along the entire course of the stream. At State street there Is a gap of fifty feet or more which will not be closed until last. It is at this point that the water mains that lead to the Hill, cross the stream bed and the question of whether or not the pipes shall be placed below the surface or raised sufficiently to permit the ready flow of the water beneath, is still to be threshed out between Commissioners H. W. Lynch and H. F. Bowman, su perintendents respectively of the de partments of streets and of public safety. The concrete bridges over the creek at Mulberry, Walnut, Cumber land and Reil.v streets have already been completed. The Hiver Wall On the river wall there is approxi mately 8,000 feet of the paved walk to be finished. This work should not requiro more than a month or six week according to the engineers of the board of public works. The steps and wall for the entire length of the city were completed before the winter shut-down. "Just when the contractors can start up on the wall job is dependent on the weather conditions, too," said J. D. Justin, principal assistant engi neer in charge of the public improve ment work, "but unless this Is un usually severe, they should be in shape to begin about the middle of March or early in April." The Gap at Market Street At Market street there is still a con siderable gap in the wall due to the change in the plans which provided for a steamboat landing at that point. This is the only interruption on the long stretch of improved river front except at "Hardserabble." A scheme for rectifying this will likely be de cided upon before the whole job Is ready for approval and it Is under stood that a solution is now being worked out. The paved walk along the wall has been completed from Iron alley up to that point. So far as the contractor is concerned work on the dam is finished and Skene and Company who built the obstruc tion, have been paid ofT and have left the city. Some of the top slabs of concrete are yet to be put into place but this work- will be done by the en gineers of the board of public works just as soon as the weather and the stage of the river permits. How soon we can start on the pav ing work for the year." said President Frank Bosch of the Central Construc tion and Supply Company, "depends, of course, on the weather. These sun ny days are all right until the condi tion of the earth is considered. Then it can be readily seen that the ground ia in no shape for grading." Market street from Nineteenth to Twenty-first, and Derry street from Twenty-third to the eastern city limits will be the first sections that will re ceive the contractor's attention, it is understood. By the time the paving contractor is ready to get busy on Market street, the new formal en trance and roadway to Reservoir at Twenty-first and Market will be pret ty nearly finished. About three fourths of that job is already com pleted. Other park work that will be .auurtcd early will be tlio conalruotlot^ ».STeeiTotP»1 1 TO HOLD MIDOLETOM F1 IN SEPTEMBER; Horse Racing Will Be a Big Feature of Sixteenth Annual Event F. B.

CUNARD LINER FLIES STARS AND STRIPES [Continued from First Page.] would be asked if the ambassador did not send one to-day on his own initiative. It was also expected in of ficial quarters that the British Ad miralty statement on the Incident might cotno to the State Department later In the form of an official com-t munlcation. While the Incident was discussed with Interest In official and diplomatic quarters, there was no in dication of what development It might take. Naval officers recalled that the navy regulations permit a warship to ily another flag than Its own but specifi cally says it must be hauled down and the ship's own flag must be hoisted before a shot is fired. There are many incidents in naval history where that has been done, the latest being the German sea rover Emden which hoisted the Japanese flag just before making a daring raid at Pen ang. Experts in naval procedure re called no case, however, where a mer chantman was Involved. It was recalled in naval circles here to-day that when Captain Glass, com manding the cruiser Charleston on his way to the Philippines with a convoy of troops stopped and captured Guam, he ordered the Japanese flag to be flown on his flagship and on the other ships of his flotilla. He sig naled this message to the steamers Australia, Peking and Sydney, mer chant ships under charter to the gov ernment and in use as troop ships: "Passing signal station at Guam, Charleston will hoist Japanese colors; other vessels same or none." The deception was aided by the fact that the Charleston was similar in appearance to the Japanese cruiser Naniwa. , All the authorities of International law and the manual in use at the naval war college justify the use of other flags on warships. Only a Few Instances The records of international law, however, contain few instances In which the use of a foreign flag on a merchantman has come Into a ques tion. One Instance, though not In time of war, came up during the term of Secretary Sherman in the State Department, in which the London Board of Trade Intervened to stop Improper display of a United States flag. These are Secretary Sherman's words: "A line of steamers plying between England and the United States under the British flag has for some years past used the United States union jack as its house flag. Upon Inquiry being made by the ambassador In London, the British Board of Trade Intervened. In virtue of Its authority In matters of shipping and navigation, and I am just informed that the line in question has been constrained to adopt another house flag." Chairman Stone, of the Senate for- L_ FOR A BAD'COLD The surest way to stop a cold Is to liven the liver the bowels, and the nicest cathartic to do this Is a 10-cent box of Cascarets. Take one or two Cascarets to-night and your cold may be gone by morning.—Ad- vertisement. i - i eign relations committee, a White House caller to-day, said that in his opinion the flying of the American flag by the Luflitania was an "improper use of the flag." Senator Stone added that it would be possible for Congress to adopt a resolution protesting against the incident, but that he thought it a matter to he handled en tirely by tho executive branch of the government.
