COULD HEAR COP'S
SNORES ACROSS CANAL
So Witnesses Swear in Telling of
Jones' Alleged Drunkeness
at Hearing
Derision as to what action the Police
Committee will recommend that Steel
ton's council take on Councilman Fred
Wagenbach's charges against Patrol
man Jones was reserved following last
evening's public hearing. The commit
tee will investigate further before
drawing up its recommendation.
Officer Jones appeared at last eve
ning's meeting with an attorney. A
number of his friends pafked the rear
of the council chamber and gave the
session some of the appearances of a
political rally. This impression was
strengthened by the presence of so
many candidates. Councilman Benja
min Capella. Committeeman Albert
Sellers and Squire T. V. Gardner, three
candidates for Justice of the Peace
were present and Joseph Gore, a can-
I didate for High Constable held down
chair in the rear of the room.
Hear Cop's Snores Across Canal
The charges against Mr. Jones con
sisted of two affidavits presented to
council by Mr. Wagenbach at Mon
day's meeting. These documents
were signed by Benjamin F. Lapp, a
special officer for the Pennsylvania
I Steel Company, and Steve Pop, watch
man at No. 6 watchbox at the Steel
Works, and assert that on last Fri
day night, or rather early Saturday
morning, Patrolman Jones was seen
by them In a visibly intoxicated con
dition. He staggered across the Mer
chant Mill bridge, the affidavits say,
stretched himself out on a porch and
slept, lights from an automobile, the
deponents declare, showed him laying
with arms extended and coat open.
| His snores the documents say, could
be heard across the canal, a distance
of about 125 feet. Both Lipp and Pop
substantiated their affidavits.
In response to questions from Chair
man Nelley and Attorney Wickersham
who represented Jones. Llpp declared
that he made the affidavits at the re
quest of Mr. Wagonbach who came to
him and asked what he knew about
the case.
Burgees Has no Hand In It
The name of Burgess Fred Wlgfleld
who at a former time suspended Jones
and recommended his dismissal, was
then brought Into the case by both
Chairman Xelley and Jones' attorney
who sharply questioned Lipp as to
whether or not he made the affidavit
at the Instigation of the burgess.
To all these questions Lipp replied j
that he held absolutely no conversa
tion with Wlgfleld and had not seen
him since the latest Jones' incident. ■
He said he had attempted to get him |
on the telephone the nlgnt he declared
Jones was drunk.
"Well, why did you try to report to I
the burgess instead or your own j
superior officer," sharply queried i
Chairman Xelley after whispering
with Mr. Sellers.
"Because we have been friends for i
twenty years and because I thought |
the hurgess should see the condition
of his officer," soberly replied Llpp as
he looked the police committee chair
man straight in the eye.
"As a taxpayer and citizen," con
tinued Officer Lipp in reptv to a query
by Councilman Relsch, "I thought It
my duty to Inform Burgess Wigfleld
of the conduct of his officers."
Try to Break Down Stories
The testimony of Llpp was sub-'
■stantlated by Mr. Pop, who Is a cripple
! and walks with a rane. Both men held
' steadfastly to their stories although
i Jones' attorney inade repeated efforts |
i to break them down.
When Patrolman Jones was permit
ted to make his defense ne charged
that there was evidently a "rrame up" 1
against him. He protested his entire j
Innocence of the charges and ex
plained that his failure to report be
tween 1 and 4 o'clock that night was
due to severe cramps In the stomach.
| "This testimony of Mr. Lipp and
i Steve Pop." declared the officer, "is
| absolutely wrong."
! Besides his flat denial of the charges
against him. Patrolman Jones offered]
to prove his Innocence by showing
he was sober at a quarter of eleven
Friday night. To do this his attorney 1
called a number of witnesses who
testified that they were together at
the garage of E. G. Irvln. a whole
sale liquor dealer at that hour.
Joseph Gore, 129 Adams street, n i
former detective, swore he spoke to j
Jones about 1 o'clock when the officer
went home for lunch. "He was sober!
then." Gore declared. Patrolman
James Pearson also saw Jones on hts ;
lunch hour, he said. He, too, declared '
he was sober.
The witnesses at the Irvln garage ,
Included E. G. Irvln. Charles L. Soul- I
lard, a painter, and Lawrence Cham- !
hers, the man who was In the recent
automobile accident at Dauphin, where i
Harry Erbe lost his life.
Most of these witnesses swore Jones
came to the garage and asked for Mr. i
Irvln and held a long conversation,
with him.

schall, who is in a precarious con
dition. this morning and identified as
one of the men who made the assault.
In default of $1,500 ball he was sent
to jail to await a.hearing before Squire
T. V. Gardner.
Mrs. Gutschall has been ill for some
time with a serious stomach ailment,
i Last evening her condition was so bad
that her husband, William Gutschall,
remained home from work.
Shortly after 11 o'clock he went to
the home of a relative, just a few
doors away, to obtain something for
his wife. Upon his return a few min
utes later he found the unconscious
form of his wife lying on the porch.
Gutschall carried his wife Into the
house and summoned medical aid.
When the woman revived sufficiently
to talk she said that a few minutes
after her husband.left the house two
foreigners entered. When they saw
the woman, who was sitting in a chair,
they rushed at her and attempted to
choke her. Mrs. Gutschall, however,
eluded their grasp and ran from the
house screaming. As she stumbled
onto the porch she swooned.
Mrs. Gutschall described her assail
ants and her husband, with a neigh
bor, immediately recognized the de
scription of one of the men as that of
a foreigner whom they knew. They
set out at once to find the men. A
short distance from the house they
saw two men and called to them. The
foreigners immediately fled.
Mr. Gutschall and the neighbor im
mediately pursued and overtook one
of the men. Before they could get him
away from the foreign district a crowd
of angry foreigners gathered and
threatened the Americans, they sa.v.
After repeated efforts to get their
prisoner out of the crowd had failed
on account of the foreigners' menacing
attitude the Americans released their
prisoner and fled for their safety.
Later they summoned Constable
John Gibb, who went to the boarding
house of Caleto, in South Third stre'et,
routed him out of bed and placed him
under arrest.
When taken before Squire Gardner
this morning the prisoner protested
his innocence. He was held in de
fault of $1,500 hail for a hearing.
On account of the serious condition
of Mrs. Gutschall the hearing will be
held at her bedside to-morrow morn
ing at 11 o'clock.

[Continued From First Page.]
tton of Mexico and sa.vs reports to that
effect "have caused the constitutional
government to feel justly alarmed."
He declares he has been Instructed by
Carranza to communicate to the secre
tary on the subject.
"r. Carranza and the persons who
co-operate with him, "says the letter
to Secretary Lansing, "are of the pro
found conviction that if the American
Government would have the true
situation In Mexico, It would under
stand that the only possible, Just and,
acceptable solution would be to leave'
the revolution to follow Its natural
course until the complete victory of
the party representing greater neces
sities and popularity.
"The constitutionalist government,
represented by Mr. Carranza. abstains
from passing any comment on the
conferences that are being neld, be
cause It had no knowledge of their
character and of the conclusions whtch
may have been reached and because it
does not want to afford the supposi
tion that they tactltly consented to It,
but the same time. It considers It its
j duty to inform he American govern
| ment of the displeasures with which
i the Mexican government and people
j would view any act which would tend
! to frustrate the success practically ac
| compiished against the reactionary
i factions by the constitutionalist army
! representing the hopes and ideals of
ithe Mexican people."
! American warships to-day were
| steaming at full speed for Vera Cruz,

which have been endangered there.
Responding to an urgent appeal
from Commander McNamee, senior
American naval officer at Vera Cruz,
the battleships Louisiana and New
Hampshire sailed from Newport, R. 1.,
last night as a result of anti-American
demonstrations at the Mexican port.
The warships will reinforce the fleet
of American gunboats in Mexican
waters.
Officials continued their reticence
to-day concerning the dispatch of the
warships. It was feared that If It be
came known in advance that the war
vessels were on their way to Vera Cruz
it mlcht increase the tensity of the
situation there.
May Strengthen Patrol
In accordance with Secretary Lan
sing's announcement yesterday that it
might be necessary to strengthen the
forces on the border because of brig
andage. orders probably will be going
out soon to army posts to hold troops
In readiness if not actually to move
them. Secretary Garrison returned
to-day and conferred with his staff on
the subject.
"The conditions on the border." said
he, "have nothing whatever to do with
the fighting in Mexico and have no
political significance. Lawless people
are using this time of excitement for
an opportunity to plunder and steal,
and we are not sure that all the law
breakers are Mexicans. Some of them,
we know, are not."
Under Major-General Funston's
command on the border are nine regi
nunts of cavalry, six and one-half
regiments of infantry and two full
regiments of field artillery, in nil about
fourteen thousand troops. At the
other posts in continental United
States are about twelve thousand more
mobile troops. It was being suggest
ed to-day that if the need of troops
became Imperative It might be neces
sary to use some national guardsmen.

Must Check All Baggage
Through to Destination
Special to The Telegraph
Washington, D. C., Aug. 11.—The
Interstate Commerce Commission in a
decision yesterday affecting a great
volume of passenger traffic, particu
larly from the East and North Central
States to the South, abrogated the pro
posed rules of railroads which would
have prohibited the through checking
of baggage and sale of through parlor
or sleeping car tickets on combination
tickets used in connection with joint
fures from junction points.
For years travelers from New Tork,
Philadelphia. Baltimore and other
trunk line territory going to points In
the South and Southeast have checked
baggage through to destination and
have secured through Pullman car ac
commodations on combinations of
tickets good only to and from the gate
ways to southern and southeastern ter
ritory. The Pennsylvania and Balti
more and Ohio Railroads proposed to
abolish the practice, for protection to
their Jollnt fares to conserve their
revenues.
The commission held that no rail
road receiving the equivalent of Its full
local fare to the Junction, whatever the
character of transportation accepted
by the connecting line, may lawfully
withhold provision for incidental serv
ices universally in demand. Commis
sioner Harlan dissented from this
opinion, saying the majority action
permits evasions of the through fare.
