DYNAMITE FOUND IN FRFIGHT CAR Car Was Loaded with Paper from Bel lows Falls, and It Passed Through Lawrence, Mass., Where It Was Made Part of Wool Train. Philadelphia, Pa., Feb. 2ft. Nineteen sticks of dynamite were discovered here, attached to the tmcks of a Boston Maine freight car, by a car inspector who was examining the wheels.

Further Attacks on Mohammedans Are Feared. London. Feb. 2ft. Great Britain and France will ut once send two additional warships each to Crete to increase their naval force there. Russia, at the in stance of Premier Poincare of France, will also send warships. The action is taken on account c-f the continued at tacks of Mohammedans on the island and the activity of the Cretan revolutionary committee. Italy has concurred in the action of the other protecting powers, but because she recognized the neutrality of Crete at the opening of the war with Turkey, she will send no war vessels. The action of the powers is believed to indicate that they fear that Turkey will declare war on Greece as a retaliatory measure if any more Mohammedans are killed. The Cretans wish to sever their connection with the Turkish empire and be annexed to Greece. The powers believe that such an event would precipitate a general war in the Balkans, and are therefore anxious to prevent it. Kirtomalos, near Canea, Crete, Feb. 20. Three Mohammedans have been assas sinated here. Their coreligionists who attempted to carry their bodies to the consulates at Halcpa were prevented from doing so by the gendarmes.

They Are Weak in Students and Are Lacking in Efficiency, Reputed at National Council of Education. St. Louis, Feb. 20. The rural school is the one laggard in the educational procession, declares the report of the committee on rural school education, pre sented yesterday to the national council of education, in session here in connec tion with the department of superintend ence of the National Education associa tion. E. T. Fairchild, state superintend ent of public instruction in Kansas, is chairman of the committee.. "In spite of the marvelous develop ment in enrollment, in kind and charac ter of teaching .force, in excellence of buildings, in equipment and diversity of courses in town and city schools, in nor mal schools, colleges and universities," the report says, "the rural school re mains the most backward of all educa tional agencies. "Of the 12,000,000 rural school children less than 25 per cent, complete the work of the grades. The teaching force is im mature and lacks proper training. Terms are too short, School buildings are poor, unsanitary and ill-equipped. The su pervision is inadequate. The strong, vir ile mral school of a generation ago has gone: and in its place is a primary school weak in numbers and lacking in efficiency. "Although the rural schools serve di rectly the interests of the greatest per cent, of our population, and although they are admittedly the most inefficient part of our educational system, yet no where is there an organized and nation wide effort to make them serve fully the needs of the new civilization under which we are now living. The country school needs assistance. If these schools are to be bettered, theye must be a nation-wide campaign of publicity. Public attention must be challenged and the rural com munities must lie aroused to the neces sity of better school privileges for the children. "Authority and money must be given to the federal bureau of education that it may undertake a campaign for the reorganization of the rural school."

The legislative com mittee on railroads yesterday resumed its hearing on the petition of the South ern New England railroad corporation, controlled by tho Grand Trunk, to enter Boston and other Massachusetts cities and towns.' On Tuesday, counsel for the railroad failed to produce a map showing the pro posed location, as called for by laws of the commonwealth, and it was finally decided that the committee would hear the petitioners but would not report to the legislature tinless the map showing the surveys were submitted by March 30. Moorfleld Story of counsel for the peti tioner said at yesterday's liearin that his company was not asking for a char ter, as it is already a railroad doins business. "We are here with a proposition that we would like you to ask the legislature to adopt," said Mr. Story. "If, after hearing the petitioner, you will say what we can do, that is what we ask. If we file such a route, we ask that you pro vide some means whereby damages shall be fixed on the basis of values at this time, and not after its location is made known.' A Railroad Bill."

C, Feb. 2ft. Senator Reed of Missouri yesterday addressed the Senate in support of his resolution for an investigation of Senator Henry Algernon du Pout's right to occupy a seat in the United States Senate from Delaware. He declared that he hoped the proposed investigation would excul pate Senator Du Pont, but he insisted that the inquiry should be ordered. The disclosures before the sub-com mittee that investigated the charges against Cornelius P. Swain for United States marshal of Delaware, lie said, de mand further investigation, which ought to be courted by an innocent man. The Swain investigation, he asserted, was confined by the committee strictly to the fitness of Swain, and the inquiry repre- j sented nothing more than "the tracing j of a single thread through a web of ' iniquity." j Senator Reed said that the charges ! that resulted in the withdrawal of j Swain's nomination were that he bore the "common and general reputation of a persistent vote buyer and election cor- j mptionist in violation of the law." i "If Swajn bore this reputation," he continued, "then it must be presumed i that this fact was known at the time of his appointment. He was, according I to testimony, appointed at the request I of Senator lu Pont. If it be true that! Senator Du Pont recommended for ap- pointment a man whom he knew to Ie engaged in corrupt practices relating to elections, then'- lie gravely offended against this body by being instrumental in bringing such an appointee before the Senate for approval." Senator Reed said that while there was a conllict of testimony as to the general reputation of Swain, there was other testimony which, if true, "shows that Senator Du Pont had a personal knowledge of Swain's corrupt practices, and to have been privy to them."
