While rail road officials of the country generally agreed to-day that passage by Con gress of the proposed eight-hour bill would avert.the strike set by the four! brotherhoods of trainmen for next j Monday, many were of the opinion! that the railroads would decline to' accept the law without a contest in, the United States Supreme Court. The plan to-day, as the result of conferences last night among presi dents of a number of the leading roads was that no claim of unconsti tutionality will be interposed, but should the measure be enacted it will! be studied by the railroad lawyers, and if they deem it davisable they will: make a test case in the courts. Prepare For Strike "If the men accept the measure it' will probably mean the postponement; of the strike, was the statement of E. P. Ripley, president of the Atcheson, Topeka and Santa Fe. Such action, however, will mean but a temporary settlement of present difficulties. Preparations of the railroads for operation of trains in the event of a strike continued to-day notwithstand ing the proposed legislation at Wash ington.

Dim lights and the ripple of water from a nearby dam create an atmos phere of romance, but council doesn't oare.

Miller must now examine the entire petition and be satisfied that at least 1751 of the names are legal and regular. The Procedure If Council refuses to heed the prayer of the petitioners, the matter must then be referred to the people who must decide the problem at the polls. Should this procedure, be fol lowed it will be the first initiative ac tion attempted in Pennsylvania. Council, by the provisions of the Clark act, cannot act on the petition until ten days after the expiration of the time limit for signing. City Clerk Miller said he will have the petition ready for the commissioners by Tues day, September 12. Just what the individual views of the commissioners are on the subject to-day could not be learned because all of them but Mayor Meals were out of the city. They are expected home this afternoon or early evening from Johnstown, however. It is understood in municipal circles that the commissioners will decline to adopt the amendment but will let the question go before the people. The Mayor's Position Mayor Meals discussed his position freely. , . '•To my mind 2.925 people do not represent a majority of the people of the city and I think this is a matter for the people to decide. For it should be borne in mind that the Clark act provides that if such action is once au thorized. either by Council in response to a petition, or by the voice of the people by their vote—the ordinance cannot again be changed for two years. "So it is a matter for the consider ation of the whole people; if the peo ple want the change, the people will say so by their vote and authorize the change accordingly. Committee Asks Mows "And that." concluded the Mayor, "Is what I told the committee of those interested in the jitney measure who called on me to-day." The Mayor also told the committee that he is not for the amendment in fact for the present ordinance. He i thinks the solution could best be ar rived at. he said by the jitneurs all paying a pro rata share until a fund of possibly $30,000 is reached, thts to stand as a fund against which suits can be brought. Furthermore, the Mayor said he thinks a $2,000 bond is excessive and believes that a SI,OOO bond would be more equable.

A baseball team representing the Children's Industrial Home yesterday won over the Swatara A. C.; score, 9 to 8. Ream pitched good ball in pinches for the victors. Both teams showed ragged work in the field. TVilliamstown is going to make Lykens hustle for that Dauphin- Schuylkill pennant. They defeated Tremcnt yesterday; score, 9 to 2. Ly kens holds second place and hopes to get back in the lead by winning to morrow's game. Dauphin baseball fans are wonder ing what will happen to-morrow. Ac cording to the regular schedule, they plav two games with Newport at New port. Early this week announcement was made that they would play off the game with Marysville at Dauphin to morrow.

Another battle will be fought at Sixth and Division streets between Keener A. C. and a picked nine from the Allison Hill League to be known as the Stanley A. C. A picked team from the Lucknow League yesterday won from the Lock Haven team of the Pennsylvania Rail road; score, 9to 3. The victory was a whole lot due to Gilday's pitching. He had good backing. To-day the same teams play at Lock Haven. Neither team scored until the third inning. Central high school candidates for positions in the war canoe will report at Bogar's store to-night. Coach Frank Roth is anxious to have tho boys get busy in training. Bertram W. Saul, athletic director for the Central high, will be in charge.
