UP V-'i ' . -.. . -, , SATURDAY EVENING, MAY i, J 1S THE FJTTSBURG PRESS I i j TO MEET BABCOCK ; AND DEMAND ACTION I ON POLiCE COURTS The Christian Social Service union an- ! pointed a committee last nijrrit to call oa V. Babcock, chairman of the com-! mittee of 100, and demand action by the city administration on the union's plan jor ctianging the police court system. ; H. it. Vmiock moved for the annoint- ! . j. nttr sail. ' nwnt of the committee. He said in part- "il'ayor Joseph 5. Armstrong, to be elected, had to give his promissory i note. His own signature was not suf- ! ficient and it was necessary for him to secure indorsers. That notB has been protested for Hie past veftr; it is now "P to the committee of 100, who indorsed it, to pay. "I move you, Mr. President, that a committee be appointed to visit Mr. Babcock and demand that the committee be called together, not in secret session, as if guilty, but in open session, should he fail to call tins committee, then a rump session of those of the committee who are in favor of clarifying the situation- is in order." Secretary C. R. Zahnlser made a report at the meeting last night on the police courts campaign. Addresses were made by Allen T. Burns of Clew-land and Prof. A J. Todd, of the Uni-vrsity of Pittsburg. Eleven lay members of the union were elected to the central board. They are John C. Hill, Ralph W. Harbison, J. Ralph Park, George R. Wallace, Harry G. Samson, Julian Kennedy, Car-inan C. Johnson, Richard R. Quay, Frank C. Boyd. Frank W. Dale and Charles C. Dunniner. PLAN COMMITTEE OF 100 FOR FIGHT IN THE COUNTY A meeting is being held this afternoon at the Seventh Ave. hotel, which will probably bring about the formation of a committee of 100 to take part in the campaign for county offices and five seats in the city council. In view of the fact that the invitations to the meeting are signed largely by mu recognized as advocates of local option the impression prevails in political circles that a plan is on foot to establish an organization not only for the campaign this year, but also for the campaign for legislators next year, which will be waged largely on the wet and dry issue. - County commissioner O'Neil, a candidate for re-election, is one of the signers of the invitations to the meeting, and it is known that some of the other candidates for county offices have been asked to be present. The other names attached to the invitations are those of George E. Alter, T. J. Gillespie, R. W. .Harbison, Rev. Dr. J. K. McClurkin, State Representative John W. Vickerman and Rev. Dr. George W. Shelton. The invitations Eay that a committee of 100 is planned. BRICKLAYERS STRIKE , FOR BIGGER WAGES S .

The strike order followed a report that satisfactory terms with the contractors could not "be reached, made to the meeting last night of Bricklayers' Local union No. 2.

Among the contracts tied up by the striking bricklayers are the William Penn hotel and the W. H. McKelvy and James E. Rodgers schools.

May 1. Hurling of bibles at officials in inter-churoh games by spectators, profanity, thefts from gymnasium lockers, from hotels and railroad trains used bv church, prep and high school baseball, football and basketball players and wholesale playing of "ringers" by coaches, were some of the charges made against Chicago amateur teams by Franklin W.

Following a con ference with members of the board of education of Pittsburg yesterday Governor Brumbaugh announced that he would veto the Tompkins . bill, providing a state pension system for school teachers, unless it . was amended to eliminate Pittsburg and Philadelphia, the two cities comprising school districts of the first class. The governor said both cities have good pension systems which would be destroyed by the Tompkins bill. ;. .. . The governor also indicated strongly that he will veto the Dunn bill, which reaches his desk, this week. This bill fixes the minimum tax to be levied by first school districts at 24 mills. The present law makes it five mills. The bill also provides that the taxes "shall be levied and assessed in the same proportion as the municipal taxes of the municipality are levied and assessed." The Pittsburg educators objected strongly to both provisions, but laid particular emphasis on the latter clause. Under this provision the Pitts burg school tax would have to be as sessed under the act of 1913, which provides that the city tax rate on buildings shall be gradually reduced be low the rate on land until it is 50 per cent less. At present this law does not apply to the schools. The committee from the Pittsburg board of education included Taylor All- derdice, N. R. Criss, Marcus Aaron, Dr. A. L. Lewin, superintendent of Schools William M. Davidson and Counsel J. Rodgers McCreery. They were accompanied to the governor's office by J. George Becht. secretary of the state board of education.

Binler. which culminated April 20 when Bingler committed suicide at the "Bungalow," a rooming house at 208 Shady ave., after killing his sweetheart, was written today when a coroner's Jury returned a ver dict that Miss Rich came to her death from gun shot wounds in the breast from a revolver In the hands of Ernest H.

Deputy Ewing s investigation tailed fo prove the cause of the shooting. Friends of Miss Rich said that Miss Rich had told Bingler that she had led a dual life while keeping company with him, and it is thougnt that the confession of Miss Rich caused the fatal shooting. WHAT WAR MOVES MEAN By J. W. T. Mason. Former European Manager of th United Press. New York. Mav 1. Today is the date fixed by Lord Kitchener for the war to begin. The winter waiting has passed and the early spring campaign has gone and now, according to the British war minister, hoi'l.iUties are to de velop a new phase because England's citizen army is. completing ua training and is being sent to the front. Lord Kitchener's prediction, however. was based on the insufficient experi- t ences of last summer and autumn. If May first can be said to mark the real beginning of the war, it is not in tne sense meant by Lord Kitchener. insteaa or tne aaie or an advance oy the allies planned to- grow in ferocity until the Germans are driven back to their own territory May first marks more accurately the establishment of a deadlock along the European battle fronts. Nothing is more probable in this war than that the Germans will not be forced to retreat to their own boundaries. Indeed, it Is not likely now that a persistent attempt to drive them back will ever be made by the allies. The long expected rnajor offensive by the allies In the west lias probably been killed by the meager gains of Germans, Frencb and English minor offensives since last autumn. Each belligerent has made many efforts during the winter and spring to pierce the opposing lines. Two victories has been, won by Germany, two by France and two by England, but they are all without any influence on the outcome of the war. ' WHERE IT WILL END. The Germans were successful near Soissons and north of Ypres; the French advanced slightly in the Champagne and between the Meuse and the Moselle, the English captured Neuve Chapelle and moved forward a few hundred yards south of Ypres. If the results of all these gains could be consolidated and if the total were to the credit of one of the belligerents only, still the result would be of minor, significance. Every event which has happened in advance in Belgium since the Germans halted their retreat from Paris at the Aisne has been cumulative evidence of the insights of. a certain British officer who wasasked last year when the' war would' end. He answered he didn't know when it would end, but he knew where within several hundred yards of the then existing battle line. As the western campaign has come to a deadlock, so have conditions in the eastern front reached a stage resembling mutual exhaustion. The struggle for the Carpathian passes, which has so recently ended, is the cumulating evidence that neither Russian, German nor Austrian any longer possesses effective offensive power.
