National Commerce Men
to Discuss Wage Demand
Kansas City, March 17.—Railroad
| officials, employes and men high in
the industrial world looked forward
! with interest to the expected discus
j sion before the executive hoard of
! the chamber of commerce of the
j United States here to-day of the eight
hour day and wage demand of 400,-
■ 000 trainmen employed in the nation's
! railways.
In stating the attitude of the organ- 1
ization, Elliott H. Goodwyn, general
secretary of the board, said:
"The Chamber of Commerce of the
United States is concerned in the pos
sibility of a threatened strike which j
: the industrial world does not want.
A committee to be named to-day by
j the executive board will work
[ on a plan whereby the railroads and
\ their employes can work out their
disputes among themselves."
Pennsy Grants Half Fare
Rates to All Clergymen
I Fully ordained clergymen living in
Philadelphia or elsewhere on the
I Pennsylvania Railroad lines east of j
i Pittsburgh, now may get half-fare!
tickets to any point on the entire;
I system outside of this State.
This means that half regular pas- j
I senger rates are now open to clergy- !
I men virtually to all points in the)
United States, as the railroads west
from Chicago and St. Louis sell clerical |
j tickets. Within Pennsylvania the State
j law bars the sale of half-fare tickets j
I for the use of clergymen.
I This action of the Pennsylvania j
| Railroad is taken to remove a dls- j
j crimination which long existed against!
Philadelphia and which in effect was
causing clergymen going west to
I travel first to New York in order to I
I get the advantage of greatly lower]
[rates to be had over certain lines.

PROMOTION FOR
TWO ON READING
C. H. Ewing Advanced to Gen
eral Manager and J. E. Turk
lo General Supt.
Announcement was made last eve
ning by A. T. Dice, president of the
Philadelphia & Heading Railway, of
the following promotions:
Charles H. Ewing, from general
superintendent to general manager,
and J. E. Turk, from superintendent
of the Shamokin division to general
superintendent, succeeding Mr. Ewing.
This makes the organization virtual
ly the same as it was in 1912, when
the company had but one vice-presi
dent, the late Theodore Voorhees.
Before his election to the presidency
on Wednesday Mr. Dice was vice
president and general manager,
whereas Mr. Ewing succeeds only to
the title general manager.
Changes Two Years Ago
In 1913 the Reading created two
additional vice-presidents, Mr. Dice,
who was general manager, being made
a vice-president as well. John F.
Aucli, who was freight tratile manager
also being made a vice-president.
Later Mr. Aucli received the title
vice-president and traffic manager, the
word "freight" being dropped.
When Theodore Voorhees was elect
ed president no one was named to
succeed him as vice-president and the
place was dropped, leaving but two
vice-presidents. Now there is only
one, Mr. Auch.
Mr. Ewing was born May 28, 1566,
in Chester county. Pa. He entered
the railway service August, 1883, as
a rodman.
Athens Declares Enver
Pasha Is Still Alive
ENVER PASHA
London, March 17. According to
reports from the Turkish Legation at
Athens there is no truth in the story
that Enver Pashn, Turkish war minis
ter, was attacked by a would-be as
sassin, or that he died from his
wounds.
Previous dispatches told of rumors
of Enver Pasha's death. One report
stated that he had been attacked by
an assassin in Jersusalem.
Advance of Crude Oil

By Associated Press
Pittsburgh, March 17.—Another ad

opening of the market this morning
carried the Pennsylvania grade to
S2.GO' a barrel, the record price, which
was last paid on April 18, 1895, when
it was maintained for only twenty-four
fours. On that occasion it reacted to
$2.40, but there is no such movement
in prospect now, according to leading
