(American News Service) Philadelphia, March 3i Mob violence broke out again today wtien the transit company attempted to resume its oper ation of cars in the Bridesburg dis trict, where the cars have not been run since the strike began. The first car and strike breakers manning it, were showered with missies of all kinds. The company was forced to withdraw its service. Crazed with their victory, the strike sympathizers tore up the tracks while the others applied the torch to the wating room at Orthodox and Richmond streets. A huge sign board, a hundred feet long and twenty feet high was torn from its fastenings and placed across the car tracks and the crowd intrenched themselves be hind it, anticipating a battle with the police. Strikers wearing uniforms, protested against the mob's destruct iveness, and implored them to desist, but without avail. A large detail of police and fire department apparatus dispersed the mob. This afternoon the mobs surrounded the City Hall in a threatening attitude. Many clashes with the authorities occurred. An Immense guard of police and specials were rushed to the scene. With the arrival of a squad of po lice, coming in an opposite direction to the approach of the slow-moving fire company, the crowd was scattered. What Will Councils Do?

ARE TO EXAMINE PUBLIC RECORDS Two State Field Examiners Suddenly Arrive at the Court House. GIVEN CORDIAL WELCOME (American News Service) Washington, March 3. Another complication has arisen in the Bal-linger-Pinchot controversy, which is sorely troubling the president, and which may be the subject of congres sional action. Secretary Ballinger has refused permission to A. C. Shaw, the deposed law officer of the forestry service, to practice before the inter ior department. . Shaw has taken the matter up with his friends in congress, particularly Representative Page and Senators Overman and Simmons of North Carolina. ' They have in turn carried the lsBue to the president Thus far the president stands firmly by the decision of Secretary Ballinger, not to grant the permit to Shaw to practice before his department. He Assisted Glavis. Shaw is the man whom Pinchot di rected to proceed to Chicago and meet Louis R. Glavis and the president has concurred in his action. Senator Root has been called upon to answer by senate, or in some way to settle the matter. If he does not succeed in do ing so there will be further difficul ties growing out of the "Ballinger-Pin chot controversy. After s Glavis had seen Pinchot in Spokane , told him of the situation in Alaska, with respect to the coal claims and had been auvised by Pinchot who was then forester, to take the case to the. president, Shaw was instructeu by Pinchot to assist Glavis in the prepa ration of his case. This Glavis has testified he did. Washington, March 3. Jeff Davis, Senator from Arkansas, sworn enemy of trusts the man, in fact, who eats 'em alive is in an unhanny frame of mind. He is trying to explain away certain testimony ne gave before the House committee on public lands when advocating the passage of the bill re lating to the title of what are known as sunken lands in his state. The stenographic report shows that he told the committee he favored the bill, because, if it became a law, a large fee would be forthcoming from some of his clients. This was rather a startling statement to say the least, and now the senator is endeavoring to reconcile what he said with the ethics governing the con duct of a senator or representative in Congress. Another Inquiry May Come. Needless to say the incident has created something of a sensation in congressional circles, and everybody is wondering what the denouement will be. Davis issued a statement last night In which he undertakes to show that the awkward position in which he finds himself is the work of political enemies who are seeking to discredit him with his constituents. But be that as it may, it seems quite certain that the proprieties of the sit uation require that he do some very fine elucidating to the senate to pre vent the matter being the subject of a senatorial inquiry. To add to the complications of the situation, Senator Clark, who is Da vis's colleague from Arkansas, appear ed before the House committee and de nied tlx assertion made by Davis that he was in favor of the bill in question. Colleague's Statement Hot. He said that his colleague had mis represented his position, inasmuch as he did not approve the measure. In a significant tone he added that Senator Davis could easily have learned from him his attitude instead of securing his information from a third party. Da vis has said that a man of the name of WilMams had informed him' that Clark favored the bill. When Davis appeared before the committee on February 13 the official stenographer reported him as saying: "We could not prove our title. I con fess that there is just that much of selfishness in me, because there is a good fee if I can recover the price of that timber. I do not care where it goes, whether it goes to Arkansas or whether it goes to the St. Frances Le vee Board, but I would rather it would go to' the levee board, because that is just and right." Official Report Was Changed. As is customary Davis was given a copy of the stenographer's report for correction. He made a number of changes, and in the paragraph men- SWEEPING ATTACK ON RAILWAY BILL SHERIFF ENTERS PROTEST ON LAW Forty Cents per Day for Feed ing a Prisoner Too Small, He Says.

AS IT IS BASIS FOR FIGHT BY IN SURGENTS TO GET BILL AMEND ED SO IT WILL BE A MORE STRINGENT ONE. Washington, March 2. A sweeping attack on many features of the ad ministration's railroad bill was con tained in the minority report of the senate interstate commerce commit tee, which was submitted by Senators Cummins and Clapp In senate today. It embodies principal objections which were entered to the bill by Sen ators Clapp and Cummins when the bill was being considered before the Interstate Commerce Commission. Not alone is minority report import ant for the objections it sets forth but it will be the basis for the fight which will be waged in the senate and house by the insurgents and others to get the bill amended and made more stringent. President Taft and Senate readers have joined hands to prevent any amendments of the bill except such as may come from themselves. The insurgents in their fight- have the backing of the shippers in many sec tions of the country, especially among the cattle growers and shippers. The increased cost of groceries, meats and like commodities, to prac tically double what these same food stuffs wore when the Indiana legisla tuie passed a law allowing the county sheriffs 40 cents per day for food for each prisoner, will, in the opinion of Sheriff Linus Meredith, compel the next session of the legislature to con sider the matter of raising the sher iff's allowance for feeding prisoners. Sheriff Meredith has just complet ed his Quarterly report and will pre sent a bill to the county commission ers for $7:9.20 for food for prisoners. The bill this cuarter is much smaller than it has been in previous quarters, chiefly due to the fact t'aat fewer pris oners were in the jail. The allowance should be raised to 50 cents a day, per prisoner, accord ing to Mr. Meredith. He says that sufficient Quantity and good quality, with frequent variation of foods, might then be given the prisoners. He does not mean that tlie fare now being served is poor or insufficient. In looking over the items of the bill for the quarter he commented on the i fact that pork was not selling for 14 cents a pound a few years ago when the law was passed. Pork was but 6 cents a pound. Potatoes, canned goods, and several other products of common use have doubled in value since he became slieriff. No food of common use Is the same price now that it was three years ago and in ev ery instance, the price Is greater. REAL FOURTH HOW APPEARS CERTAIN Dealers Agree Not to Sell Any of Dangerous Kinds of Fireworks. PALLADIUM IS COMMENDED WAYNE COUNTY MEDICAL SOCIE TY PASSES A RESOLUTION EN DORSING THE STAND TAKEN BY THIS PAPER. keu to discontinue the sale of cannon crackers over six inchs long: sky rock ets, blank pistols, cap pistols, cannons, piping filled with powder, repeating canes and caps, about which there is always an element of danger. The dealers agreed not to handle these kinds of fireworks. Whiie the dealers' representation was small, nev ertheless, it Is apparent that the agi tation for the safe and sane observance of the Fourth will be successful. Ths wholesalers have promised to comply with the demands of the retail mer. chants, and will not order any fire works on which the '"Si" sign has been hung. The medical society yesterday also adopted a resolution authorizing health officers of all corporations and town- ships of the county to have ordinanc es passed which would tend to de crease the fly nuisance. A resolution of sympathy for members of the family of I)r. J. B. Allen, who died at his horns at Cambridge City, recently, was passed. A BRIDE ONCE MORE Mrs. Grace Hofheinz, who was di vorced by Ernest Hofheinz in the cir cuit court last November, was given a license to marry Clarence A. Lamb of this city, yesterday afternoon, by county clerk Harry E. Penny. 4Mrs. Hofheinz represented to the clerk at first that she had her name changed, and. also that she was divorced in March, 1909. Both groom and bride groom are 23 years old. Mr. Lamb gave his occupation as a laborer. The Wayne County Medical society, at its meeting yesterday afternoon, adopted a resolution, endorsing the stand taken by the Palladium for the curbing of the sale of dangerous fire works. The sense of the resolution is that the society favors all efforts for the promotion of the safe and sane cel ebration of the Fourth of July. The society was of a unanimous opinion that the celebration of Inde pendence Day was always held with too much danger to young America. The history of the celebrations in this city, in the past, was reviewed, it be ing shown that there had been numer ous cases where persons had been per manently maimed. The danger of lock jaw developing from wounds caused by accidents from the explosion of fire works, was also discussed. Meeting of Dealers. Dr. A. L. Bramkamp. secretary of the society, was authorized to represent the society at the meeting of the deal ers and Chief of Police I. A. Gormon, at the city building last evening. At this meeting the initial 6teps were ta- APPRAISERS NAMED Walter W. SchulU and Charles E. Marlatt, both of tills city were named 1 as appraisers to fix the vr.lue on the Border Bolt and Nut Lock company, which was recentlr thrown Into the hands of Henry T.

The plant Is a small concern located along the Pennsylvania railroad In West Richmond. It manufacturers a very practical device bt the material used, such as steel and the freight rates are so high that fie product can not be manufactured here and sold at a profit- It Is believed by those who are Interested In the concern, that it would be a naytng venture if it was located near the steel centers. Since his dismissal Mr. Shaw has tioried, struck out the clause, "because sought to practice law before the pat ent office. In order to do so it is nec essary to get permission of the secreta ry of the interior, under whose juris diction the patent office is. This per mission, Secretary Ballinger has re fused and the president upheld him. one way the reception accorded the examiners was a surprise. Mr. Way- bright said that those with whom he came in contact were more than will ing for the inspection of their rec ords, while some of the field examin ers had not been given so cordial a reception in other counties upon their arrival. there is a good fee if I can recover the price of that timber." In it3 place he interlined the follow ing: "Because I am the attorney for the St. Francis Levee Board for the re covery of that timber." The senator explained to the com mittee yesterday that he was afraid his statement might be misunderstood, and for that reason he wanted to change it. For more than an hour the com mittee held a secret session at the con clusion of which it voted almost unan imously that the original statement must stand. Davis was advised that he migtt change the "verbiage" of the statement, but make no material alteration. TOWNSHIP TRUSTEES' RECORDS FOR SEVERAL YEARS BACK WILL BE CAREFULLY EXAM INED BY OFFICIALS. Messrs. Waybright and Barrett, field examiners of the state board of ac counts, unexpectedly arrived in this city this morning and took up their quarters in the court house, where they will be engaged in the next few days, reviewing the accounts of all trustees of the county for the past few years. The presence of the lield examiners does not indicate that the accounts of any of the present or former town ship trustees are incorrect- The visit of the examiners is for the purpose of inspecting the books, in order that the citizens may know just how ac counts stand. No Request Was Made. This procedure is being followed in every county in the state, but as no request had been made to the state board of accounts for the inspection of records of Wayne county township trustees, the visit of the officials was a surprise. The law In this county is very popular and especially so among the officials, who wish to have the au thenticity of their accounts proven for their own satisfaction, as well as for that of the public generally. Mr. Way bright said today that he did not know how long he and Mr. Barrett would be In the city, but that it would take sev eral days to complete the work.
